  5. 5. INDIAN BANKING SECTOR BACKGROUND Sound and healthy banking institutions are the backbone of any economically strong country. It is the foundation on which the long-term sustainable economic progress can be built. The Southeast Asian crisis is the latest proof of this basic principle. In India the nationalized banks provide a major portion of the banking services with SBI and its subsidiaries forming the heart of the banking system. The banking sector can be broadly divided into following categories: • Public Sector banks • Private banks • Foreign banks • Co-operative banks PUBLIC SECTOR BANKS Public sector banks have the government as a majority shareholder. This segment comprises of SBI and its subsidiaries, other nationalized banks and Regional Rural Banks (RRB). The public sector banks comprise more than 70% of the total branches. The listed public sector banks are State Bank of India, State Bank of Bikaner and Jaipur, State Bank of Travancore, Bank of Baroda, Bank of India, Oriental Bank of Commerce, Dena bank and Corporation bank. State Bank of India also made a GDR issue making it the first and only Indian bank to do so. PRIVATE SECTOR BANKS (OLD) These banks existed prior to the promulgation of banking nationalization Act but were not nationalized due to their smaller size. They mostly focus on niche regional markets, and thus are smaller in size. These banks are mostly located in south of India and the driving focus of their business is service standards and technology up gradation. In the next round of industry restructuring, these banks will see heightened activity. In fact, there have
  6. 6. been takeover attempts for some of these banks, but none has been very successful. PRIVATE SECTOR BANKS (NEW) Some of the new entrants in the banking sector are making quite a few waves and bringing about a paradigm shift. Times Bank, IndusInd Bank, Bank of Punjab, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Global Trust Bank are some of the names in this category. The level of service offered and the efficiency of the operations is considered much better than the nationalized banks. FOREIGN BANKS Many foreign banks have set up their branches in India and look set to revolutionize the way business is done. Standard Chartered is the oldest foreign bank doing business in this country. Some of other foreign banks with significant presence are HSBC, American Express bank, Citibank, ABN Amro Bank and ANZ Grindlays Bank. FUNCTIONS OF A BANK Functioning of a Bank is among the more complicated of corporate operations. Since Banking involves dealing directly with money, governments in most countries regulate this sector rather severely. In India, the regulation traditionally has been very strict and in the opinion of certain quarters, responsible for the present condition of banks, where NPAs are of a very high order. The process of financial reforms, which started in 1991, has cleared the cobwebs somewhat but a lot remains to be done. The multiplicity of policy and regulations that a Bank has to work with makes its operations even more complicated, sometimes bordering on illogical. This section, which is also intended for banking professional, attempts to give an overview of the functions in as simple manner as possible. Banking Regulation Act of India, 1949 defines Banking as “accepting, for the purpose of lending or investment of deposits of money from the public, repayable on demand or otherwise and withdrawal by cheques, draft, order or otherwise.” Deriving from this definition and viewed solely from the point of view of the customers, Banks essentially perform the following functions:
  7. 7.  Accepting deposits is one of the major activities of the Banks. Banks are also called custodians of public money. Basically, the money is accepted as deposit for safekeeping. But since the Banks use this money to earn interest from people who need money, Banks share a part of this interest with the depositors. However, accepting deposits and keeping track of the money involves a lot of bookkeeping and other operations.  Lending money to the public Lending money is another major activity of any Bank. In a way, the Bank acts as an intermediary between the people who have the money to lend and those who have the need for money to carry out business transactions. This activity places its own requirements on the resources of the Bank  Transfer of money Apart from accepting deposits and lending money, Banks also carry out, on behalf of their customers the act of transfer of money - both domestic and foreign. - From one place to another. This activity is known as “remittance business”. Banks issue Demand Drafts, Banker’s Cheques, and Money Orders etc. for transferring the money. Banks also have the facility of quick transfer of money also know as Telegraphic Transfer or Tele Cash Orders.  Trustee Business Banks also act as trustees for various purposes. For example, whenever a company wishes to issue secured debentures, it has to appoint a financial intermediary as trustee who takes charge of the security for the debenture and looks after the interests of the debenture holders. Such entities necessarily have to have expertise in financial matters and also be of sufficient standing in the market/society to generate confidence in the minds of potential subscribers to the debenture.  Safe-keeping
  8. 8. Bankers are in the business of providing security to the money and valuables of the general public. While security of money is taken care of through offering various types of deposit schemes, security of valuables is provided through making secured space available to general public for keeping these valuables. These spaces are available in the shape of lockers.
  9. 9. CENTRAL BANK OF INDIA The visions to move towards a paperless office a number of initiatives have been taken in the past 2 to 3 years. The Bank has fully automated 1622 branches capturing 88% of the business and will automate all the remaining branches in the current year. The Bank has migrated from COBOL BETRIEVE based branch automation system to a more robust technology platform of ORACLE LINUX thereby claiming the “first” nationalized Bank for using LINUX on a wider scale. The branches are relieved of the hard work of preparing a number of MIS reports through the automation process. Initiative has been taken to migrate to a Centralized Banking Solution (CBS) in about 1000 branches in another 3 to 4 years’ time which will enlarge integrated delivery channels and improve critical Management Information System. The current year has been declared as a customer-centric initiative year which will take the Bank into internet banking and also opening of more ATMs, kiosks, Any Branch Banking, customer alerts E-payment facilities, etc. Hardware and software has been standardized across the country so as to have a flawless integration. 203 locations have been networked in the last year and another 302 locations have been proposed in the current year. Further, by providing a remote access server, many of the branches can have an access to the network through a simple dial-up system. This integration process will enable networking of approximately 2500 branches out of 3117 branches. The dream of integrating the branches through some form of network will be comfortably realized in a year or so. The Bank’s huge human resources of about 40000 employees are an asset to the organization and huge data base are in the process of being established. Information relating to the staff at Central Office is available at the click of a button; for the remaining staff the roll out plan is already in place and implementation is under progress. The Bank has also effectively computerized the inter-branch reconciliation system which helped in speeding up the process of inter-branch accounting
  10. 10. and reducing outstanding entries. Again the total automation of the Central Accounts System across the Bank has facilitated faster compilation of financial results. The Bank has created about 21 Corporate Finance Branches which will take care of the top borrowal accounts and the credit process time has been substantially reduced through connectivity and software solutions for processing. The dream of moving towards a paperless office is becoming a reality.
  11. 11. INDUSTRIAL CREDIT AND INVESTMENTCORPORATION OF INDIA BANK ICICI has announced its decision of focusing on retail, agriculture, SSI and corporate sectors and would also open offices internationally in the near future. On the domestic front, the bank have decided to focus on the four sectors of retail, agriculture, SSI and corporate for the future. They are also deciding to open four foreign offices as it is the right time for having international presence Doha and Hong Kong will have branches and representative offices in Dubai and Shanghai. They have received approval from the Reserve Bank of India and are waiting for approval from other respective regulatory authorities of the countries. The bank targeted to expand total business in 2006-07 by 25 per cent to Rs 1, 60,000 crore compared to last year. In the Q1 period ended June of the current fiscal the total business of the bank stood at Rs 1,32,000 crore. The bank will also open 100 more branches across the country and out of which nine would be in West Bengal. The bank has 2200 branches and extension counters at present. The bank in the next three years would increase the share of retail from 21 per cent to 25 per cent, agriculture from 16 per cent to 20 per cent and SSI to 20 per cent from 12.5 per cent now. The current retail portfolio base of the bank was Rs 11,000 crore and in agriculture Rs 8,500 crore.
  12. 12. The bank is also developing a pricing engine for foreign exchange. The bank has tied up with Reuters Trading for Foreign Exchange, targeting exporters and importers. The bank would open 1200 bank branches by March 2007 and 500 ATMs. To boost the agri business it would be opening 200 village knowledge centres. The bank would launch Bhumiheen Green Card for landless and tenant farmers for credit requirement.
  13. 13. HONGKONG AND SHANGHAI BANKING CORPORATION HSBC launched Managing for Growth at the end of 2005. This is a strategic plan that provides a blueprint for growth and development.

  14. 14. BLUEPRINT/FUTURE VISION OF SARASWAT BANK SARASWAT PLANS TO BUY 3 CO-OPERATIVES Saraswat Bank is set to acquire three cooperative banks -- Maratha Mandir Cooperative Bank, South Indian Cooperative Bank and Nasik People's Cooperative Bank. Once the financial clearance from the RBI is received, the bank will approach the Registrar of Cooperative Societies for procedural approval. Maratha Mandir and South Indian Co-operative Bank were on the verge of collapse last year, when the RBI had to intervene by imposing moratoriums on withdrawals. It is said that the bank was positive on its proposals and a decision was expected soon. Such a merger would allow the bank a wider area of operation. According to industry sources, other takeover proposals have also been submitted to the RBI. These proposals are lying pending with the central bank at a time when the government is keen on reforming and regulating co-operative banks.
  15. 15. BASIC ELEMENTS OF MARKETING MIX The service marketing consists of the following variables:- • PRODUCT. • PRICE. • PROMOTION. • PLACE. • PEOPLE. • PROCESS. • PHYSICAL EVIDENCE. 1. PRODUCT:- A product is anything that can be offered to market for attention, acquisition, use or consumption that satisfy a want or need. It includes physical objects (TV), service (banking), person (political person), place (holiday resort), organization, (Red Cross), and idea (aids awareness). 2. PRICE:- The price is the exchange value for a product or service, expressed in terms of money. The price of the services is the value attached to it by the service provider and it must respond with the customer perception of value. Price decision affects the standard of living of people, regulate sales growth, and bring economic development. In services that are price sensitive, prising is an important competitive tools in the hands of marketer. 3. PROMOTION:- One of the key elements of marketing mix is sales promotion which is used for the purpose of encouraging sales and to convey to the position of the service.

CINEMA:- It is frequently used to promote local services such as retailing services, restaurants, etc. whose targets markets are the audience of most cinemas. 3. RADIO:- It appeals only to the sense of sound. The cost of radio advertising is much lower than that of television advertising. 4. NEWSPAPER:- In case of newspaper, each paper is targeted to specific segment of populations. They can be used in order to create general awareness of a service or a brand as well as for providing detailed service information. 5. MAGAZINES/JOURNALS:- There are wide range of magazines and journals that are available to the advertisers. They provide healthy informations. 6. OTHER FORMS:- • Brochures and booklets. • Posters and leaflets. • Directories.
  17. 17. • Bill boards. • Display signs. • Point of purchase • Banner ads. • E-mail ads. • Video-tapes. 4. PLACE:- Distribution is the process of transferring goods from place to production to the place of consumption. In case of tangible goods, the distribution involves the use of networks of intermediaries for distribution. In some case the goods are distributed directly. The place of service delivery is very important. The decision regarding location is very much concerned with the selection of sites from where the delivery of services takes place. The accessibility and the availability form an important base for location of service premises. Accessibility refers to convenient with which a service can be purchased, used or received. On the other hand availability refers to the extent to which a service is obtained or capable of being purchased, used or received. 5. PEOPLE:- In services a service provider reflects the organizational realities. It is through interaction with staff, that the customers form an opinion of the organization. A service can be labor intensive i.e. people based or equipment based. In equipment based services, the equipment or machine is critical in providing services whereas labor plays secondary role. The equipment may be automatic or manually operated.(skilled or unskilled) CUSTOMER CONTACT EMPLOYEES:- They are known as frontline staff as they come in direct contact with the customers in the process of service delivery. The degree of the personnel customer contact varies so we have:-
  18. 18. a. High contact personnel: They are required when the physical presence and the interaction of the customer with the employees is for longer times. b. Low contact personnel: They are required when the physical presence and the interaction of the customer with the employees is for lesser times. c. Skilled and Professional: they are skilled or professional in a particular field. d. Non Professionals: they are people like courier delivery boy, waiter, etc. e. Non contact employees: Those who contribute to the service delivery but do not come in contact with customer. They are actually support personnel. 6. PROCESS:- The service process refers to how service is provided or delivered to a customer. Delivery system is a creative process. In order to achieve economies of scale and perform consistently the operation people would prefer to processing a batch while marketing would prefer to cater to individuals so that the customers feel that they are treated as special. Factors such as customer participation, degree of customer contact, location of service delivery and complexity of services are considered in the service process design and implementation. 7. PHYSICAL EVIDENCE:- Generally a service transaction involves the interaction of the service provider with the customer in a service environment. Physical evidence is termed as the social environment along with the tangible cues. Physical evidence is any tangible commodities that facilitate performance communication of the service. Physical evidence includes all the efforts taken by the service provider to tangibles their services. They includes, (a) Physical facilities. (b)Physical environment (c) Social settings. Physical facilities: On the basis of Physical evidence like building, furniture, equipment, stationery, etc the potential customer forms an impression about the service organization.
  19. 19. Physical environment: Physical setting or the service environment within which the service takes place influences consumer expectation of service quality and satisfaction. The important elements of physical settings are: Ambience: The ambience of physical setting includes temperature, lighting, noise, music, scent and colour. Space: People need space around them to feel comfort. Decors and artifacts: Sign, symbol and artifacts are important component of décor.

  37. 37. Service charges are levied for collection and remittance of funds, processing of loan proposals, issue of guarantees, safe custody, issue of duplicate instruments/statements ledger folio charges etc. PLACE MIX Place mix is the location analysis for bank branches. There are number of factors affecting the determination of the location of the branch of a bank. It is very necessary for a bank to be situated at a location where most of its target population is located. ICICI Bank's 24 Hour ATM network is one of the largest and most widespread ATM Network in India. Their ATMs are located in commercial areas, residential localities, major petrol pumps, airports, near railway stations and other places which are conveniently accessible to the customers. ICICI Bank has entered into an arrangement with Federal Bank for the sharing of ATM network. By this arrangement customer holding Debit cum ATM card of ICICI Bank will be able to use the ATMs of the Federal Bank for Cash withdrawal and balance enquiry transactions. The convenience of using this additional shared network comes at the nominal cost of Rs. 20 per transaction for cash withdrawal and Rs.10 per transaction for balance enquiry, plus service tax at 10.2% of the charge amount, at these ATMs. Customers can withdraw Upto 25,000 per day, either through ICICI Bank's ATMs or through any of our partner banks ATMs. Also ICICI have tied up with state bank of India to create largest domestic network.

Other services like depositing cash will be eventually included in the mutual services. A fee of Rs 18 and Rs 7 will be charged for cash transaction and other enquiries, respectively. THE PROMOTION MIX Promotion is nothing but making the customers more and more aware of the services and benefits provided by the bank. The banks today can use a lot of new technology to communicate to their customers. Two of the fastest growing modern tools of communicating with the customers are:  Internet Banking  Mobile Banking Both in which ICICI bank have achieved great standards. ICICI advertises about its products on television on a large scale. They always advertise any new product launched by them. The advertisement of ICICI bank features a young employee with good personality speaking three words through his gesture i.e. “Hum Hay Naa” -We are always there to help you. This advertisement strategy creates a kind of assurance in the minds of people that ICICI is always there to help them in their financial matters. Thus the knowledge genuineness, honest & ability to provide the service of front office staff creates trust in the minds of customer. Bank also trained its employees who have high customer contact that can build trust & confidence between employee& customer.
  39. 39. ICICI also recently signed up Shahrukh Khan as its global ambassador after a two and a half year contract with Amitabh Bacchan got over. ICICI also came up with an innovative idea of attracting kids under 18. ICICI has just tied up with Cartoon Network, the leading kids' network, and signed on their iconic toon stars, Tom and Jerry, as brand ambassadors for its Young Stars Account. The Young Stars account is another pioneering product from ICICI Bank that initiates children to the world of banking and finances. With this innovative product, the entire family is involved with the Bank and while parents can monitor their child's expenses, children learn to manage their expenses themselves. In a market where banks continuously avoided children, ICICI came a step forward to attract a population which contributes to more than 50% (54% population is currently under the age of25) . With this move ICICI is promoting itself amongst the youngsters.
  40. 40. PHYSICAL EVIDENCE Physical Evidence is the overall layout of the place. How the entire bank has been designed. Physical evidence refers to all those factors that helps make the process much easier and smoother. For example in case of a bank the physical evidence would be the placement of the customer service executive’s desk, or the location of the place for depositing the Cheques. It is very necessary the place is designed in such a manner so as to ensure maximum convenience to the customer and cause no confusion to him. The experience of Physical Evidence of an ICICI bank branch we visited was as follows: Very well organized, well furnished and there is enough space to sit. Separate boxes are made i.e. for local clearing, national clearing for depositing the cheque, for which there is no need to stand in the queue. Tokens are not given for withdrawing cash; instead there is only one line for depositing and withdrawing the cash. The same line leads to 5 to 6 different counters wherein cash can be withdrawn and deposited, so that any new comer is not confused by seeing too many lines. All the departments where put up in such order that a rush in one of the departments would not lead to problems to the other department
  41. 41. The enquiry counters where placed right in front of the entrance so that the new visitors do not have any problem in locating the counters and the people can be helped as quickly as possible. The work was being carried out at a very efficient pace. The staff of the bank are well presentable and dressed and always with an ID around their neck for easy identification. ICICI Bank is fully equipped with decent interior. It has all the latest technical instruments such as printer, scanner, fax machines, computers, etc. All the equipments are well maintained to avoid any blockage in the service. There were signboards indicating which department lies where, different counter number etc. All the employees were in their formal uniforms, which gave a decent look and differentiated them from the customers. All this facility probably helps new customer to reduce his confusion for banking transaction & importantly they get involved in banking environment quickly. There is no doubt that ICICI is the one of the topmost bank as it shows what great planning has been done in even the smallest of the matters. Physical evidence also includes other factors which makes the process convenient like ATM’s, forms, cheque, credit cards etc. Following are the features available on our ATMs, which can be accessed from anywhere at anytime.

  45. 45. THE PROCESS MIX The process mix constitutes the overall procedure involved in using the services offered by the bank. It is very necessary that the process is very customer friendly. In other words a process should be such that the customer is easily able to understand and easy to follow. Today if particular banks formalities are long and the procedure very complicated the overall process fails and the customer may not inclined towards using that banks services.

The attached form is then sent by the branch to the Regional Processing Centre (RPC), where the documents are physically checked and scrutinized. After the verification is complete, and if they are satisfied with the documents, they activate the account else the form the application is rejected.
