    Barclays is the first ever foreign bank in India to have a website in the Hindi language.

    You can read more about this at: CXOtoday.com > Barclays Launches Hindi Website

    The url itself does not seem to be Hindi, just the content (see: http://www.barclays.in/hindi/index.htm). Nevertheless, it's a smart move by Barclays.

    Indeed its a smart move. Advertising & promoting your business in local language that corporates have learned over the time. Everyone from Nokia to Yahoo to Microsoft and now Barclays have tuned up their services to cater larger chunk.

    but, at the same time, most of the Indian companies have refrained from it..

    Also, Tata Teleservices has just launched a Hindi version of their Tata Indicom website.

    Perhaps even more companies will follow?
