The pace of development for the Indian banking industry has been tremendous over thepast decade. As the world reels from the global financial meltdown, India’s banking sectorhas been one of the very few to actually maintain resilience while continuing to providegrowth opportunities, a feat unlikely to be matched by other developed markets around theworld. FICCI conducted a survey on the Indian Banking Industry to assess the competitiveadvantage offered by the banking sector, as well as the policies and structures required tofurther stimulate the pace of growth.A majority of the respondents, almost 69% of them, felt that the
Indian bankingIndustry was in a very good to excellent shape
, with a further 25% feeling it was ingood shape and only 6.25% of the respondents feeling that the performance of theindustry was just average.This optimism is reflected in the fact that 53.33% of respondents were confident ina growth rate of 15-20% for the banking industry in 2009-10 and a greater than20% growth rate for 2014-15.

in themarket, as there continue to remain opportunities in unbanked areas. However,57.14% felt that

core banking solution
 requirements, with the remainder, comprising mostly of our public sectorrespondents, lagging behind in implementation in rural areas.Public Sector Banks, Private Sector Banks as well as Foreign Banks view difficulty inhiring highly qualified youngsters as the major threat to their
HR practices
aheadof high staff cost overheads, poaching of skilled quality staff and high attritionrates.
(Refer: Fig 11, Pg 16)
 Due to long-term maturity, the trend for prime lending rates seems to be changingnow. However, there are other factors which have led to the stickiness of lendingrates such as wariness of corporate credit risk (33.33%), competition fromgovernment small savings schemes (26.67%).With regards to loan disbursement, while industry shows preference for a jointappraisal system, banks are happy with the current system and in fact 71.43% of our respondents felt that there was no need for standardized credit appraisalacross the industry.
