OBJECTIVE Kotak Mahindra Bank wishes to establish itself as the pre-eminent bank of choice for the mass affluent of India. Kotak Mahindra’s offering of 6% on savings account has been a marketing success met by increased savings account deposits. However, it was not the only bank to do so. Competitors like Yes Bank and IndusInd Bank have also increased the offering on savings account post the RBI deregulation. In spite of other banks still offering 4% on the savings account, Kotak Mahindra has not been able to match them yet in terms of market share and popularity. In such a competitive scenario, depending on just the PRICING strategy is not sufficient. what is needed is the improvement and opportunities in the other levers of the marketing mix of the financial products and services that it offers, so that it is able to differentiate itself from the competitors in the coming future.Primary Research Overview Modern day banking customers are taking greater control of their banking relationships.
