You can select the max(date) and group by the IDX and BANK_NAME field:

from MyTable
group by IDX,  BANK_NAME;

If you can have different BANK_NAMEs for a IDX you may need a query similar to this one to achive the output you're looking for:

from (
   select IDX, max([MODIFIED DATE]) as [MODIFIED DATE]
   from myTable group by IDX
) as m inner join MyTable t on m.IDX = t.IDX and m.[MODIFIED DATE] = t.[MODIFIED DATE]
