In 1931, Kulangara Paulo Hormis established the Travancore Federal Bank at Nedumpuram, a
place near Tiruvalla in Central Travancore. After initial moderate success, the bank came to the
verge of bankruptcy. In 1944, K P Hormis ,and his close relatives and friends obtained a
controlling interest in the bank. The next year, the bank shifted its registered office to Aluva and
the Bank commenced business by opening its first branch at Aluva. In 1947 it changed its name
to Federal Bank.

In 1964, the bank embarked on a series of acquisitions that would substantially increase its size.
It acquired the Chalakudy Public Bank in Chalakudy, the Cochin Union Bank in Trichur, and
the Alleppey Bank in Alleppey. The next year it acquired the St.George Union Bank in
Puthenpally. Lastly, in 1968, it acquired the Marthandom Commercial Bank in Trivandrum.
