Projectsformba.blogspot.com LIST OF FIGURESSavings accounts are accounts maintained by retail financial institutions that payinterest but can not be used directly as money (by, for example, writing a cheque).These accounts let customers set aside a portion of their liquid assets while earninga monetary return.Mortgage is the transfer of an interest in property (or the equivalent in law - acharge) to a lender as a security for a debt - usually a loan of money. While amortgage in itself is not a debt, it is the lenders security for a debt. It is a transferof an interest in land (or the equivalent) from the owner to the mortgage lender, onthe condition that this interest will be returned to the owner when the terms of themortgage have been satisfied or performed. In other words, the mortgage is asecurity for the loan that the lender makes to the borrower.Personal Loan is two types, (1) Unsecured Loans (2) Secured LoansUnsecured loans are based solely upon the borrowers credit rating. As a result,they are often much more difficult to get than a secured loan, which also factors inthe borrowers income. An unsecured loan is considered much cheaper and carriesless risk to the borrower. However, when an unsecured loan is granted, it does notnecessarily have to be based on a credit score. For example, if your friend lends
Projectsformba.blogspot.comyou money without any collateral, meaning something of worth that can berepossessed if the loan isnt repaid, then your credit score has zero to do with it, butrather the value of your friendship is at stake. Therefore the real meaning of anunsecured loan is that it is not backed by any object of value and is lent to youbased on your good name. For financial institutional purposes, they may want tolook at your credit score because they are not your friend and it is strictly abusiness transaction, therefore your good name may be associated with yourhistorical payment history on prior debt, reflecting in your credit score. There arethree types of unsecured loans. First there is a personal unsecured loan, meaning aloan that you individually are responsible for the repayment of, second is anunsecured business loan which leaves the business responsible for the repayment,and finally there is an unsecured business loan with a personal guarantee. With thelatter, although the borrower is the business, you as an individual will be thepayer of last resort if the business defaults on the loan.A secured loan is a loan in which the borrower pledges some asset (e.g. a car orproperty) as collateral for the loan, which then becomes a secured debt owed tothe creditor who gives the loan. The debt is thus secured against the collateral — inthe event that the borrower defaults, the creditor takes possession of the asset usedas collateral and may sell it to satisfy the debt by regaining the amount originallylent to the borrower. From the creditors perspective this is a category of debt inwhich a lender has been granted a portion of the bundle of rights to specifiedproperty. The opposite of secured debt/loan is unsecured debt, which is notconnected to any specific piece of property and instead the creditor may satisfy thedebt against the borrower rather than just the borrowers collateral.A debit card (also known as a bank card or check card) is a plastic card whichprovides an alternative payment method to cash when making purchases.Functionally, it can be called an electronic check, as the funds are withdrawndirectly from either the bank account (often referred to as a check card), or fromthe remaining balance on the card. In some cases, the cards are designedexclusively for use on the Internet, and so there is no physical card.A credit card is part of a system of payments named after the small plastic cardissued to users of the system. It is a card entitling its holder to buy goods andservices based on the holders promise to pay for these goods and services. Theissuer of the card grants a line of credit to the consumer (or the user) from whichthe user can borrow money for payment to a merchant or as a cash advance to theuser.
Projectsformba.blogspot.comACCOUNT CLOSING: An account can be closed by an account holder afterapplying in writing to this effect to the bank. When an account is closed, all unusedcheque forms are required to be returned to the bank. The passbook should be gotcompleted up to the last transaction of closing the account. A banker is not entitledto arbitrarily close any account. However, in case of unsatisfactory transactions,the banker has right to close the customer‘s account after giving him areasonable notice enabling him to clear his outstanding dues relating tohis account.ACCOUNT INTRODUCTION: For opening a bank account,introduction from someone known to the bank (like an existing accountholder) or a satisfactory reference (like Passport, Identity card, RationCard, etc.) is required so as to establish the identity and genuineness ofthe person/party in whose name the account is being opened. In the absenceof proper introduction, the bank may not get the statutory protection under Section131 of the Negotiable Instrument Act of 1881. Another important requirement ofopening of an account is a photograph of the account holder(s), which is to beplaced on record.ACCOUNT PAYEE: These are the words added to the crossing on a cheque,which means that the cheque be collected, and proceeds deposited, only in thepayee’s account. These words, however, do not affect the negotiability of a cheque.AVERAGE DAILY BALANCE: It is the balance of an account, which isrecorded daily for a given period and then totaled. The total figure so arrived isdivided by the number of days in the period to arrive at an average daily balance.BANK BALANCE: Bank balance is the amount of money standing to the creditor debit of a bank account.BANK CHARGES: This term is used for the charges levied by a bank for thevarious services it renders to its customers. These may relate to collection of out-station cheques, bills of exchange and hundies, fees charged for safe custodydeposits, incidental charges on current accounts, etc.BANK DRAFT: A bank draft is a cheque drawn by a bank on one of its ownbranches or correspondents requesting the latter to pay the specified sum of moneyto the person named in the draft.

A further analysis of theSection reveals the following characteristics: INTRODUCTIONBrief history of Indian BankingBanking in India is as old as the hills. It flourished even in ancient Vedic times.Money was accepted o deposit and given in the form of advances. During theMogul period, the indigenous bankers played a very important role in lendingmoney and financing of foreign trade and commerce. They were also engaged inthe profitable business of money-changing. Every town, big or small had a ‘sheth’,also known as ‘shah’, ‘shroff’ or ‘chettiar’ who performed a number of bankingfunctions.In the first half of the nineteenth century, the East India Company established threebanks: The Bank of Bengal in 1809, The Bank of Bombay in 1840, and The Bankof Madras in 1843. These three banks, also known as Presidency Banks, wereindependent units and functioned well.In the wake of the Swadeshi movement, a number of banks with Indianmanagement were established in the country. The Punjub National Bank Ltd. Wasfounded in 1895; The Bank of India Ltd. In 1906; The Canara Bank Ltd. In 1906;The Reserve Bank of India was constituted in 1935 under the Reserve Bank ofIndia Act, 1934, to “regulate the issue of bank notes and the keeping of reserveswith a view to securing monetary stability in India and generally to operate thecurrency and credit system of the country to its advantage”. The Bank is

L. Hart says,” A banker is one who, in the ordinary course of his business,honours cheques drawn upon him by persons from and for whom he receivesmoney on current accounts.”Banks’ Functions Besides the functions stated in the previous paragraphs, viz.the acceptance of deposits of various types for the purpose of lending or forinvestment, banks are permitted to engage in some other forms of business, such ascollection of cheques, bills and other instrument, remittance of funds, openingletters of credit, issuing travelers cheques, accepting articles for safe custody,letting out safe deposit lockers, purchase and sale of securities etc., issuingindemnities and guarantees etc., acting as executors and trustees, underwriting theissue of shares, debentures etc. (Section 6 of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949).

Projectsformba.blogspot.com RETAIL BANKINGConcept of Retail BankingRetail banking is a banking service that is geared primarily toward individualconsumers. Retail banking is usually made available by commercial banks, as wellas smaller community banks. Unlike wholesale banking, retail banking focusesstrictly on consumer markets. Retail banking entities provide a wide range ofpersonal banking services, including offering savings and checking accounts, billpaying services, as well as debit and credit cards. Through retail banking,consumers may also obtain mortgages and personal loans. Although retail bankingis, for the most part, mass-market driven, many retail banking products may alsoextend to small and medium sized businesses.

Projectsformba.blogspot.com MARKETINGConcept of Marketing from the difference between the Sales and Marketing. TheMarketing Concept was born out of the awareness that the business should startwith the determination of consumer wants and end with the satisfaction of thosewants. The concept puts the consumer at both the beginning and the end of thebusiness cycle. It stipulates that any business should be organized around themarketing function and its task should be one of anticipating, stimulating andmeeting customers’ needs. The customer, anticipating, stimulating and meetingcustomers’ needs. The customer, not the corporation, has to be the centre of thebusiness universe. A business can’t succeed by succeed by supplying products andservices that are not designed to serve the needs of the customers.As P.F. Drucker says, The Marketing Concept has four major distinguishingfeatures:Consumer Orientation-An overwhelming emphasis on the consumer and his need is the firstdistinguishing of the marketing concept. The concept enables the firm to look at itsbusiness from the point of view of the consumer. The importance of the consumercan be seen clearly in the following words of Drucker: “ The purpose of anybusiness is to create a customer. It is the customer who determines what a businessis. It is the customer who determines what a business is. It is the customer and healone, who, through being willing to pay for a good service, converts economicresources in to wealth, things into goods. What a business thinks it produces is notof first importance- especially not to feature of the business and to its success.What the customer thinks he is buying- what the considers value, is determineswhat a business is, what it produces and whether it will prosper”.Integrated Management, with Marketing as the Fulcrum:Integrated management here means that all the different functions of the businessmust be tightly integrated with one another, keeping marketing as the pivot. This isessential because every function has a bearing on the consumer and the aim is to
Projectsformba.blogspot.comsee that all the functions make a favorable impact on the consumer. For this tohappen, all functions have to be integrated and properly aligned with marketing.Consumer Satisfaction:Integrated management action explained above, is a means, not an end in itself. Itis the means for fulfilling the needs of the consumer. And this leads us to the thirdmajor distinguishing feature of the marketing concept, namely, consumersatisfaction. The marketing concept emphasis that it is not enough if a firm hasConsumer orientation, it is essential that such an orientation leads to consumersatisfaction.Realization of All Organizational Goals, Including ProfitConsumer satisfaction too, is not an end in itself. The marketing concept does notpreach that a firm must generate consumer satisfaction and forgot its own interests.Instead, it teats consumer, satisfaction as the pathway to the attainment of the goalsof the organization. The undergoing approach is: If a firm has succeeded ingenerating consumer satisfaction, it implies that the firm has given a qualityproduct, offered competitive price and prompt services, and has succeed in creatinggood image.Marketing as is known deals with all those processes required to put the productsin the hands of the ultimate consumer. On Marketing a pithy definition has beengiven by the Father of Marketing Management Philip Kotler as “Marketing is thedelivery of the consumer satisfaction at a profit.” Thus one of the essentialparameters that judge the effectiveness of marketing exercise is the effect it has onthe organization’s bottom.”
