The history of Federal Bank dates back to the pre-independence era. On 7th April 1931 at Pattamukkil Varattisseril Tharavad, the Pattamukkil Varattisseril Brothers gathered together to discuss the necessary steps to be taken to form a bank.

The Federal Bank Limited (the erstwhile Travancore Federal Bank Limited) was incorporated with an authorised capital of ₹5000 from Pattamukkil Varattisseril Brother’s at Pattamukkil Varattisseril Ancestral Home, Nedumpuram a place near Thiruvalla in Central Travancore on 24th April 1931 under the Travancore Company's Act, 1916. It started with the business of auction-chitty and elementary banking transactions related to agriculture and industry. The home functioned as the bank office for nearly 15 years.

The founders included Pattamukkil Varattisseril Oommen Geevarghese, and his brothers Oommen Chacko, Oommen Kurian, and Oommen George. Oommen Geevarghese was the founder chairman and Oommen Chacko was the managing director. The Travancore Agriculturists' Relief Act, 1939, and the limitation of interest by the Travancore Debt Relief Act, 1941 greatly influenced the smooth functioning of bank. The terms and conditions of this particular act was supportive to the farmers and it was totally against the interest of the banks and auction-chitty operators of that time. After the bank had functioned for nearly 15 years, the bank's day-to-day operations had to be stopped due to Oommen Chacko's ill-health.

A lawyer from Perumbavoor named Kulangara Paulo Hormis (K. P. Hormis), and his acquaintances, bought the shares and took over the management on 30th December 1944 and till 18th May 1945 Travancore Federal Bank Limited functioned at Nedumpuram under his chairmanship.

The bank's name was shortened from Travancore Federal Bank Limited to Federal Bank Limited on 2 December 1949, after completing the formalities of Banking Regulation Act, 1949

Between 1963 and 1970, Federal Bank took over Chalakudy Public Bank (est. 20 July 1929 in Chalakudy), Cochin Union Bank (est. 1963) in Trichur, Alleppey Bank (est 1964; Alappuzha), St. George Union Bank (est. 1965) in Puthenpally, and Marthandam Commercial Bank (est. 1968) in Thiruvananthapuram. In 1970, Federal Bank became a scheduled commercial bank and came out with its initial public offering in 1994.

In January 2008, Federal Bank opened its first overseas representative office in Abu Dhabi.

In April 2015, Federal Bank posted its highest ever net profit at Rs 1005.75 crore for the fiscal 2014-15. The net profit grew 20% during the year which saw the deposits and advances of the bank outgrow that of the industry by 40%.
