INTRODUCTIONINDUSTRY PROFLE OF STATE BANK OF INDIA (SBI)The evolution of State Bank of India can be traced back to the first decade of the19th century. It began with the establishment of the Bank of Calcutta in Calcutta, on 2June 1806. The bank was redesigned as the Bank of Bengal, three years later, on 2January 1809. It was the first ever joint-stock bank of the British India, established underthe sponsorship of the Government of Bengal. Subsequently, the Bank of Bombay(established on 15 April 1840) and the Bank of Madras (established on 1 July 1843)followed the Bank of Bengal. These three banks dominated the modern banking scenarioin India, until when they were amalgamated to form the Imperial Bank of India, on 27January 1921.An important turning point in the history of State Bank of India is the launch ofthe first Five Year Plan of independent India, in 1951. The Plan aimed at serving theIndian economy in general and the rural sector of the country, in particular. Until thePlan, the commercial banks of the country, including the Imperial Bank of India,confined their services to the urban sector. Moreover, they were not equipped to respondto the growing needs of the economic revival taking shape in the rural areas of thecountry. Therefore, in order to serve the economy as a whole and rural sector inparticular, the All India Rural Credit Survey Committee recommended the formation of astate-partnered and state-sponsored bank.The All India Rural Credit Survey Committee proposed the take over of theImperial Bank of India, and integrating with it, the former state-owned or state-associatebanks. Subsequently, an Act was passed in the Parliament of India in May 1955. As aresult, the State Bank of India (SBI) was established on 1 July 1955. This resulted inmaking the State Bank of India more powerful, because as much as a quarter of theresources of the Indian banking system were controlled directly by the State. Later on, the
State Bank of India (Subsidiary Banks) Act was passed in 1959. The Act enabled theState Bank of India to make the eight former State-associated banks as its subsidiaries.The State Bank of India emerged as a pacesetter, with its operations carried out bythe 480 offices comprising branches, sub offices and three Local Head Offices, inheritedfrom the Imperial Bank. Instead of serving as mere repositories of the communityssavings and lending to creditworthy parties, the State Bank of India catered to the needsof the customers, by banking purposefully. The bank served the heterogeneous financialneeds of the planned economic development.
BRANCHESThe corporate center of SBI is located in Mumbai. In order to cater to differentfunctions, there are several other establishments in and outside Mumbai, apart fromthe corporate center. The bank boasts of having as many as 14 local head offices and57 Zonal Offices, located at major cities throughout India. It is recorded that SBI hasabout 10000 branches, well networked to cater to its customers throughout India.ATM ServicesSBI provides easy access to money to its customers through more than 8500ATMs in India.

E-BANKINGInternet banking (or E-banking) means any user with a personal computer and abrowser can get connected to his bank -s website to perform any of the virtual bankingfunctions. In internet banking system the bank has a centralized database that is web-enabled. All the services that the bank has permitted on the internet are displayed inmenu. Any service can be selected and further interaction is dictated by the nature ofservice. Once the branch offices of bank are interconnected through terrestrial or satellitelinks, there would be no physical identity for any branch. It would a borderless entitypermitting anytime, anywhere and anyhow banking.The delivery channels include direct dialup connections, private networks, publicnetworks, etc. with the popularity of computers, easy access to Internet and World WideWeb (WWW), Internet is increasingly used by banks as a channel for receivinginstructions and delivering their products and services to their customers. This form ofbanking is generally referred to as Internet Banking, although the range of products andservices offered by different banks vary widely both in their content and sophistication.The E-Banking is an application that has been developed for a well-establishedregional bank operating primarily in south India. The bank has several branches in keycities and towns in the north. In the world of this competitive environment andtechnological development, the bank has been totally computerized in the last 3 years,and to increase its customer base has started planning, for a concept called as e-banking;with this concept the bank wants to move very nearer to the customers and increase itsbasic operational strategies. Through E-Banking the bank wants to introduce the coreconcept of IT based Enabled Services (ITES). The E-Banking services are executed only
upon the customer, and these e-banking services would fully integrate with the corebanking solution that is already in usage. The major idea is to provide a series of servicesto the customer through the internet, and make the customer feel flexible in calling outsimple tasks faster instead of making visit to the bank every time. The e-banking serviceis open only to savings bank. Customers and not for current account holders. Thecustomer is privileged to use most of the system only as a viewing phase, the only onlinetransactions the customer can do are chequebook requisition and fund transfer among hispersonal accounts.Wireless banking is a delivery channel that can extend the reach and enhance theconvenience of Internet banking products and services. Wireless banking occurs whencustomers access a financial institutions network(s) using cellular phones, pagers, andpersonal digital assistants (or similar devices) through telecommunication companies’wireless networks. Wireless banking services in the United States typically supplement afinancial institutions e-banking products and services.Person-to-Person PaymentsElectronic person-to-person payments, also known as e-mail money, permitconsumers to send “money” to any person or business with an e-mail address. Under thisscenario, a consumer electronically instructs the person-to-person payment service totransfer funds to another individual. The payment service then sends an e-mail notifyingthe individual that the funds are available and informs him or her of the methodsavailable to access the funds including requesting a check, transferring the funds to anaccount at an insured financial institution, or retransmitting the funds to someone else.Person-to-person payments are typically funded by credit card charges transfer from theconsumer’s account at a financial institution. Since neither the payee nor the payer in thetransaction has to have an account with the payment service, such services may beoffered by an insured financial institution, but are frequently offered by other businessesas well.
Banking Services through Internet:1. The Basic Level Service is the banks’ web sites which disseminate informationon different products and services offered to customers and members of public in general.It may receive and reply to customer’s queries through e-mail;2. In the next level are Simple Transactional Web sites which allows customers tosubmit their instructions, applications for different services, queries in their accountbalances, etc. but do not permit any fund-based transactions on their accounts;3. The third level of Internet banking service are offered by Fully Transactional Websites which allow the customers to operate on their accounts for transfer of funds,payment of different bills, subscribing to other products of the bank and to transactpurchase and sale of securities, etc. The above forms of Internet banking service thecustomer or by new banks, who deliver banking service primarily through Internet orother electronic delivery channels as the value added services. Some of these banks areknown as ‘Virtual’ banks or ‘Internet only’ banks and may not have physical presence ina country despite offering different banking services.The Indian Scenario: -• Internet banking, both as a medium of delivery of banking services and as astrategic tool for business development.• At present, the total internet users in the country are estimated at 9 lakh. However,this is expected to grow exponentially to 90 lakh by 2003. Only about 1 percent ofInternet users did banking online in 1998. This is increased to 16.7 percent inMarch 2000. - (India Research, May 29, 2000, Kotak Securities)
• Cost of banking service through the Internet from a fraction of costs throughconventional methods. Rough estimates assume teller cost at Re.1 per transaction,ATM transaction cost at 45 paise, phone banking at 35 paise, debit cards at 20paise and Internet banking at 10 paise per transaction.Plastic Cards as Media for Payment: -There are four types of plastic cards being used as media for making payments. Theseare:1. Credit Card2. Debit Card3. Smart Card4. ATM Card1. Credit Cards: -The credit card enables the cardholders to: Purchase any item like clothes,jewellery, railway/air tickets, etc. Pay bills for dining in a restaurant or boarding andlodging in hotelAvail of any service like car rental, etc.2. Debit Cards: -A debit card is issued on payment of a specified amount by the issuing companylike a telephone company to a customer on cash payment or on debiting his account by abank.Thus it is like an electronic purse, which can be read and debited by the requiredamount.
It may be noted that while through a credit card, the customer first makes a purchase oravails service and pays later on, but for getting the debit card, a customer has to first paythe due amount and then make a purchase or avail the service. For this reason,debit card are not as popular as credit cards.3. Smart Cards: -Smart Cards have a built-in microcomputer chip, which can be used for storing andprocessing information. For example, a person can have a smart card from a bank withthe specified amount stored electronically on it. As he goes on makingtransactions with the help of the card, the balance keeps on reducing electronically. Whenthe specified amount is utilized by the customer, he can approach the bank to get his cardvalidated for a further specified amount. Such cards are used for paying small amountslike telephone calls, petrol bills, etc.4. ATM Cards: -The card contains a PIN (Personal Identification Number) which is selected by thecustomer or conveyed to the customer and enables him to withdraw cash up to thetransaction limit for the day. He can also deposit cash or cheque.Internet banking in IndiaThe Reserve Bank of India constituted a working group on Internet Banking. The groupdivided the internet banking products in India into 3 types based on the levels of accessgranted. They are:i) Information Only System: General purpose information like interest rates,branch location, bank products and their features, loan and deposit calculations areprovided in the banks website. There exist facilities for downloading various types ofapplication forms. The communication is normally done through e-mail. There is no
interaction between the customer and banks application system. No identification of thecustomer is done. In this system, there is no possibility of any unauthorized persongetting into production systems of the bank through internet.ii) Electronic Information Transfer System: The system provides customer-specific information in the form of account balances, transaction details, and statement ofaccounts. The information is still largely of the read only format. Identification andauthentication of the customer is through password. The information is fetched from thebanks application system either in batch mode or off-line. The application systemscannot directly access through the internet.iii) Fully Electronic Transactional System: This system allows bi-directionalcapabilities. Transactions can be submitted by the customer for online update. Thissystem requires high degree of security and control. In this environment, web server andapplication systems are linked over secure infrastructure. It comprises technologycovering computerization, networking and security, inter-bank payment gateway andlegal infrastructure.Avail the following services through E-Banking.Bill payment serviceYou can facilitate payment of electricity and telephone bills, mobile phone, credit cardand insurance premium bills as each bank has tie-ups with various utility companies,service providers and insurance companies, across the country.
