INTRODCTION TO Indian Auto Industry The automobile industry in India offers significant employment opportunities. The automobile industry including component industry employs 0.45 million people directly and around 10 million people indirectly. The auto industry recorded a turnover of US$ 10 billion while the auto-component industry recorded a turnover of US$ 2.7 billion in 1999-2000. Many international auto majors entered the country post liberalisation in 1991. India’s largest car-maker Maruti Udyog Ltd (MUL) was recently privatised with Suzuki Motor Corporation moving into the driving seat after acquiring a majority stake and management control in the Maruti Suzuki joint venture in early 2002. Policy Initiatives Auto policy announced by the government in 2002 has opened the automobile sector to 100 per cent foreign direct investment and removed the minimum capital investment norm for fresh entrants. This will benefit manufacturers who are planning to enter the Indian market, particularly in the burgeoning motorcycle market. The new policy has taken into account the need to address emerging problems and make the auto sector WTO compatible. The policy is also in favour of providing excise duty concessions to small cars, multi-utility vehicles and low emission vehicles. It envisages India becoming a major hub for the manufacture of small cars and a global supplier of components. The policy also includes incentives to facilitate R&D. Import tariffs are to be fixed in a manner so as to promote manufacturing in India, as opposed to mere assembly, without giving undue protection to domestic industry. While ensuring a balanced transition towards open trade, the automotive tariff structure will be reviewed periodically to prevent India from becoming a ‘dumping ground’ for international rejects.

Opportunities India enjoys a distinct cost advantage with respect to auto-ancillary manufacturing capabilities. While developed nations’ labour cost component is 30-35 per cent of sales, Indian labour cost is only around 8-9 per cent of sales. The number of vehicles manufactured in India has risen from 3 million units annually in 1999 to 5 million units in 2002. This has also led to an increase in domestic demand for automotive components. Other global players in component manufacturing Japanese and British component manufacturers are already operating JVs in India. American companies, which have or are planning to set up plants in India, include Delphi (an automotive components division of General Motors, USA), Delco Electronics, Textron and Magna International of Canada. Auto majors such as DaimlerChrysler, Volvo, Renault, Toyota and Honda are planning to outsource their requirements from India. Automotive components manufactured in India are of top quality and used as original components for vehicles made by top international companies such as General Motors, Mercedes and IVECO among others The industry encompasses commercial vehicles, multi-utility vehicles, passenger cars, two wheelers, three wheelers, tractors and auto components. There are in place 15 manufacturers of cars and multi utility vehicles, 9 of commercial vehicles, 14 of Two/Three Wheelers and 10 of Tractors besides 5 of engines. With an investment of Rs.50,000 crores, the turnover was Rs. 59,500 crores in Automotive Sector during 1999-2000. It employs 4,50,000 people directly and 100,00,000 people indirectly and is now inhabited by global majors in keen contention. India manufactures about 38,00,000 2-wheelers, 5,70,000-passenger cars, 1,25,000 Multi Utility Vehicles, 1,70,000 Commercial Vehicles and 2,60,000 tractors annually. India ranks second in the production of two wheelers and fifth in commercial vehicles.

India’s automotive component industry manufactures the entire range of parts required by the domestic automobile industry and currently employs about 250,000 persons. Auto component manufacturers supply to two kinds of buyers – original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and the replacement market. The replacement market is characterised by the presence of several small-scale suppliers who score over the organised players in terms of excise duty exemptions and lower overheads. The demand from the OEM market, on the other hand, is dependent on the demand for new vehicles. There has been a slowdown in the automobile sector in the past two years. However, the component industry maintained a low but positive growth rate mainly due to its export performance. Over the years, the component industry has maintained a 10% - 12% share of exports in the total production. Roads occupy an eminent position in transportation as they, as per the present estimate, carry nearly 65% of freight and 87% of passenger traffic. Although, India has 3.3 million kilometers of road network, which is the second largest in the world, the Indian highways are getting overpopulated. Traffic management and road sense also need attention.

Improving Road Infrastructure
Traffic on roads is growing at a rate of 7 to 10% per annum while the vehicle population growth for the past few years is of the order of 12% per annum. Poor road infrastructure and traffic congestion can be a bottleneck in the growth of vehicle industry. A balanced and coordinated approach will be undertaken for proper maintenance, upgradation and development of roads by encouraging private sector participation besides public investment and incorporating latest technologies and management practices to take care of increase in vehicular traffic. For the convenience of traveling public the Government shall also promote multi-modal transportation and the implementation of mass rapid transport systems.

Incentive for Research and Development
The Government shall promote Research & Development in automotive industry by strengthening the efforts of industry in this direction by providing suitable fiscal and financial incentives. The current policy allows Weighted Tax Deduction under I.T. Act, 1961 for sponsored research and in-house R&D expenditure. This will be improved further for research and development activities of vehicle and component manufacturers from the current level of 125%. In addition, Vehicle manufacturers will also be considered for a rebate on the applicable excise duty for every 1% of the gross turnover of the company expended during the year on Research and Development carried either in-house under a distinct dedicated entity, faculty or division within the company assessed as competent and qualified for the purpose or in any other R&D institution in the country. This would include R & D leading to adoption of low emission technologies and energy saving devices. Government will encourage setting up of independent auto design firms by providing them tax breaks, concessional duty on plant/equipment imports and granting automatic approval. Allocations to automotive cess fund created for R&D of automotive industry shall be increased and the scope of activities covered under it enlarged

PRESENT FINANCE COMPANIES SCENARIO
Rapidly falling interest rates have made loans affordable to more people, which means there's still plenty of room left for growth. Disbursements are expected to increase at an annualized 34% over FY2003-FY2007,taking outstanding retail loans to $130bn by FY2007. This translates to a growth in outstanding loans from the current $36bn to $130bn, which would represent 33% of bank credit and 18% of GDP in FY2007. The market penetration at this level would still leave ample room for growth. The boom in financing would spuran increase in spends on consumer durables such as two-wheelers and cars. Sales growth in two-wheelers would accelerate from an annualized 10-11% over the past ten years, to 15.6% over

FY2003-2007; Car sales, which have grown at an annualized 11% over the past three years, would rise at an even faster 20%.

Retail loans would form a third of banks' asset books in FY2007, and add Rs130bn to their earnings over the next three years. Fuelled by the free fall in interest rates and intense competition, especially from state-owned banks, the availability of finance has expanded rapidly, and EMIs have fallen more steeply, than was expected. Consequently, the target population for financing has expanded by 18-20% for assets like cars, twowheelers and mortgages. The following exhibit shows growth of consumer finance over the years. The growth has been on a very high base, fuelled by the rapid fall in interest rates and the aggressive entry of many banks. The market would remain under penetrated even at high projected growth in future.

Falling Interest Rates

Falling interest rates, coupled with increasing loan durations, have substantially reduced the EMIs on retail loans, thereby making them affordable to more people than ever before. The table below shows the fall in Interest Rates.

Sales of passenger cars increased by 26.5% yoy in the first half of this fiscal, owing to the lowering of excise duties in the general budget. The two-wheeler industry grew by 8.9% during this period, much slower than the heady high-teens growth over the past two years, as the agricultural slowdown last year hit rural incomes. Two-Wheeler sales are expected to increase at a compounded 15.6% over FY2003-FY2007 Car sales would rise at an even faster 20% over the same period.

Consumer Preferences
Indian consumers identify ease and speed of the loan application and approval process, as well as flexibility of evaluation procedures, as the key drivers of financing satisfaction. Consumer Financing Satisfaction Performance is measured by four factors: • • • • Application process (44 percent); Approval and documentation (22 percent); Finance advisor (18 percent); and Loan value (16 percent).

Customers who obtained their loans from a nationalized bank are relatively more satisfied than those choosing a non-banking finance company (NBFC) or a foreign bank.

Low interest rates and the reputation of the finance company are among the key reasons for customers who opted either for an NBFC or a foreign bank. In comparison, past experience and personalized service are the main reasons indicated by those opting for a nationalized bank.

Furthermore, more than 50 percent of NBFC and foreign bank customers obtained their financing at an automobile dealer or through a direct selling agent of the finance provider. In contrast, more than 90 percent of nationalized bank customers obtained their financing directly through the bank. The car finance market has reached a new level of maturity, so much so that the car-maker, the automobile dealer and the financier now work together to provide better features and funding options for the buyer. Depending on the manufacturer, tenure of the loan and credit history of the car buyer, interest rates, on a reducing balance basis, now hover in the 10-13.5 per cent range for new cars compared to 13-16.5 per cent till early last year. There is an increased preference for financing car purchases through loans.

Maruti Udyog Limited (MUL) was established in Feb 1981 through an Act of Parliament, to meet the growing demand of a personal mode of transport caused by the lack of an efficient public transport system. Suzuki Motor Company was chosen from seven prospective partners worldwide. This was

Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

“Procedural Study & Market Share Determination on Maruti Finance” at ICICI Bank
due not only to their undisputed leadership in small cars but also to their commitment to actively bring to MUL contemporary technology and Japanese management practices (which had catapulted Japan over USA to the status of the top auto manufacturing country in the world). A licence and a Joint Venture agreement was signed between Govt of India and Suzuki Motor Company (now Suzuki Motor Corporation of Japan) in Oct 1982.

The objectives of MUL then were: Modernization of the Indian Automobile Industry. Production of fuel-efficient vehicles to conserve scarce resources. Production of large number of motor vehicles which was necessary for economic growth Vision—“The Leader in The Automobile Industry, Creating Customer Delight and Shareholders Wealth; A pride of India.” Core values CustomerObsession Fast,Flexible and First Mover Inovation and Creativity Networking and Partnership Openness and Learning

COMPANY BACKGROUND
Maruti collaborated with Suzuki of Japan to produce cars in 1983. At this time, the Indian car market had stagnated at a volume of 30,000 to 40,000 cars for the decade ending 1983. With MUL’s entry, the passenger car market saw a spurt in demand.

The sector registered 18.6% CAGR growth in sales during 1981-90.The company reached a total production of one million vehicles in March 1994, becoming the first Indian Company to cross this milestone. It crossed the two million mark in 1997. In 2001, it launched new businesses – ‘True value’, ‘Maruti finance’, ‘Maruti Insurance’ and ‘N2N’. In 2003, the company listed on BSE & NSE after its public issue.

Business profile
MUL is the leading automobile company in the passenger car segment with over 50% market share in FY04. It has a presence across many segments in automobiles. It is the leader in the mini and the compact segment with its brands like ‘800’, ‘Zen’,‘Alto’, ‘Wagon R’. It also has a presence in the mid-size segment with its ‘Esteem’and ‘Baleno’ brands and the ‘Omni’, ‘Vitara’, ‘Versa’ models.

Industry scenario
The passenger vehicles industry comprises passenger cars, utility vehicles (UV) and multipurpose vehicles (MPV’s). The fortunes of the auto sector are strongly correlated to macroeconomic parameters and the performance of the industrial sector. In India, around 80% of all new cars are financed. The increased availability of finance at low rates and strong GDP growth translated in a healthy growth for the industry.

Passenger car sales account for over 77% of total passenger vehicle market and UV’s account for the balance. Infact, UV’s have a higher share than what they did in the earlier years. It is still lower compared to some of the developed countries. In USA for instance, UV’s account for 50% of the total Passenger vehicles market and in Indonesia they account for 80% of the market.

In FY04, vehicle sales contributed for 94.6% of the gross sales and the balance 5.4% was contributed by sales of spare parts, dies and moulds and components. The company registered sales volumes of 472,122 units including exports in FY04. Net sales increased by 31.3% to Rs93.7bn in FY04 from Rs71.4bn in FY03. Income from services stood at Rs278mn in FY04 from Rs136mn in FY03, a rise of 104%. Other income primarily included returns on treasury operations, scrap sales, sales tax benefits and provision write back. It increased by 36.6% to Rs3.8bn in FY04.

EXPORTS MUL exported 51,175 units in FY04, a growth of 59% yoy. Its FOB value is Rs9.4bn in FY04 compared to Rs6.2bn in FY03, registering a 51.7% rise yoy. This growth as mainly due to ‘Maruti 800’ which grew 56.8%. The A2 category registered a 60.5% growth. The Alto and the Zen have done well for the company. The company registered good growth in Algeria, Belgium, Bhutan, Chile, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Nepal, Sri Lanka and UK. Raw material costs Steel sheets, castings, forgings, alloy steels, steel tubes, saw steep rises in prices, which added to the raw material costs of the company in FY04. Consolidated buying of steel and long term contracts helped counter this problem to some extent. Even under such a scenario where raw material prices were rising, the company saw its cost of raw material go down by 4.8 percentage points to 74.5% of net sales in FY04 due to its operating efficiencies. The company enjoyed a royalty waiver on some of its models from Suzuki, and paid 10% less on components sourced from Suzuki, which helped reduce raw material costs further. Operating profit margins (OPM) for the company improved to 10% in FY04 from 5.3% in FY03.

Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS)
The company has 3,334 employees as on March 31, 2004. It offered VRS to its employees in FY04 and 1,251 employees accepted the same. Rs1.2bn were accounted in the income statement to VRS in FY04. This was additional to the VRS offer in FY02, which was accepted by 1,050 employees.

Initiatives taken
Vendor rationalization was done and number of vendors was reduced to 220 in FY04 from over 350 two years prior to FY04. This helped enhance the supply chain efficiencies. MUL’s tie-up with SBI and its associate banks enabled it to reach smaller towns and cities where financing for purchase of vehicles was provided. Largely driven by this initiative, the company witnessed a 17% growth in its ‘800’ sales. The ‘Alto’ too, with its reduced prices saw a 130% growth, the highest by any car in the year. MUL has 142 outlets covering over 100 cities. The company, realizing that presence across segments is a key factor, launched the ‘Grand Vitara’ a top-end SUV for the Indian market. It extended its ‘true value’ scheme and now accepts old cars of any manufacturer for a new MUL car.

R&D
The objective of R&D by MUL was two-fold. One was to reduce product costs and the second is to become the regional R&D hub for Suzuki operations. The R&D spend for FY04 stood at Rs390mn which is 0.35% of total turnover. R&D operations include, face lifts and body changes – styling, clay modeling, computer aided design, proto-type making, dies designing and so on. In FY04, the company introduced new Zen due to its R&D efforts.

No capacity constraint
MUL has three fully integrated facilities with a combined production capacity of 500,000 units pa. However, the company produced around 1.4lac cars in Q4 FY04 without a third shift. Annualizing this figure makes it 5.6lac cars annually, which is higher than the 4.7lac cars produced by MUL in FY04. Therefore, MUL will not be constrained by capacity in the near future.

MUL also reduced the number of hours required to produce a vehicle. From a high of 100 hours in FY01 to 46.1 hours in FY04, it has come a long way in improving its productivity and efficiency.

Depreciation
MUL revised the estimated life of dies and jigs from a uniform eight years to periods ranging from 29 months to five years depending on the model. This was done wef April 1, 2003 based on technical evaluation. This resulted in higher depreciation to Rs4,949mn in FY04 from Rs3,221mn in FY03.

Investments worth Rs15.7bn were made during FY04. The major chunk of the investments are in debt mutual funds that account for 88.4% of the investment portfolio in FY04 compared to bank fixed deposits which accounted for 98% of the total investments in FY03. Investment in bank fixed deposits is included under cash & bank balances in the annual report.

Working capital management
The company follows just-in-time (JIT) inventory principles. The net working capital of the company fell 62.7% yoy in FY04 to Rs4.9bn. This was mainly due to a fall in the debtor days to 26.8 days from 34.3 days in the previous year. Inventory holding days declined to 17.1 days in FY04 from 24.9 days in FY03. Approximately 70% of MUL’s components are outsourced. The creditor days reduced too to 47.3 days from 58.1 days in the previous years. The company states that it does not desire to delay payments to component manufacturers and therefore has not stressed on increasing average payable period.

Due to high sales growth and improved efficiency in operations caused the EPS to more than triple to Rs18.8 in FY04 from Rs5.1 in FY03. The debt to equity ratio declined to 0.09 in FY04 from 0.15 in FY03. This shows that RONW increased with lower level of risks. Cash flow from operating activities increased by 32% yoy to Rs10.5bn in FY04.

Outlook and future strategies
Robust economic growth, favorable regulatory framework, affordable finance and improvements in infrastructure favor growth of the passenger vehicles segment. The low penetration levels at 7 per thousand and rising income levels will augur well for the auto industry. However, rising oil prices and input raw material costs remains a concern. MUL expects the compact cars, which currently constitute around 80% of the market, to be the engine of growth in the future. About 18% of cars sold in India run on diesel. MUL does not have a presence in this segment. It is therefore, setting up a capacity to offer diesel cars. It will be investing Rs3,500mn on this plant that will be operational by 2006.

CHALLENGES
Wafer thin margins for financiers. Intense competition for the market share. Financiers exiting from the car loan sector Standard Chartered , ABN Amro exited from Maruti Finance. ICICI and HDFC reached to share of 80% in Maruti Finance

The Low Cost Maintenance Advantage The acquisition cost is unfortunately not the only cost you face when buying a car. Although a car may be affordable to buy, it may not necessarily be affordable to maintain, as some of its regularly used spare parts may be priced quite steeply. Not so in the case of a Maruit Suzuki. It is in the economy segment that the affordability of spares is most competitive, and it is here where Maruti Suzuki shines. Lowest Cost of Ownership The highest satisfaction ratings with regard to cost of ownership among all models are all Maruti Suzuki vehicles: Zen, Wagon R, Esteem, Maruti 800, Alto and Omni. We are proud to have the lowest cost of operation/km (among petrol vehicles) - the top 5 models are all Maruti Suzuki models : Maruti 800, Alto, Zen, Omni and Wagon R.

Quality System At Maruti, our approach to quality is in keeping with the Japanese practice--"build it into the product". Technicians themselves inspect the quality of work. Supervisors educate and instruct technicians to continually improve productivity and quality. The movement of quality indicators is reviewed in weekly meetings by the top management.

In 2001, Maruti Udyog Ltd became one of the first automobile companies anywhere in the world to get an ISO 9000:2000 certification. AV Belgium, global auditors for International Organization for Standardisation(ISO), certified Maruti after a four day long audit, covering varied parameters like Customer Focussed organization, Leadership, Involvement of people, Process approach, System approach to Management, Continual improvement, etc. In May 1995, Maruti got ISO 9002 certification. The audit for this covered quality assurance in production, installation, marketing and sales as well as after sales services. We were also one of the first companies in the world to pioneer ISO 9000 certification for our dealers. In October 1993, MUL passed the Conformity Of Production (COP) Audit, which is based on a European Union Directive. This authenticated our quality systems and testing facilities for export to Europe. Our emphasis on total quality has meant that today we are in a position to guide vendors and dealers in establishing and consolidating their individual quality systems. This commitment to quality has ensured a consistently satisfying product and world-class sales and after-sales services.

A new feather was added recently in Maruti’s cap in the field of quality when the Quality Management System of its Press Shop & associated functions (collectively termed as Press Function) got certification for conformance to the requirements of TS16949:2002 standard. The need for TS certification of Press Function had its genesis in the prestigious project that Maruti earned for the supply of stamped panels to General Motors India for one of its forthcoming models.

As a part of Quality system requirements, GM requires all its suppliers to be certified to either ISO TS 16949 or QS 9000. These standards address Quality System requirements, which are particularly specific to the automotive industry and requires an organization to be in compliance with ISO 9000 systems as a basic requirement. However, whereas QS 9000 would become defunct and cease to exist after Dec 2006, TS 16949 is going to be the standard of the future. The TS 16949 standard, brought out by ISO in the year 1999, is an extension of the ISO 9001:2000 standard that prescribes Quality management system requirements that are specifically applicable to the automotive industry. TS 16949 has gained high popularity and almost all major automobile players across the globe including GM, Ford, Daimler Chrysler, Nissan, Honda are embracing & promoting it

Step 5 FIELD INVESTIGATION & TELE VERIFICATION
The main reason behind conducting FV & TV is to ensure whether the address given by the customer is genuine or not,. In case of ICICI, HDFC, MCW, CMFL & Kotak, verification has been done by separate agency which works for Bank. .Once the verification is initiated by the Bank; Agency will personally visit to both office & Resident Address of applicant for field verification and make report on that and communicate results to Bank. In case of Tele Verification, the Agency will not meet personally but contact them over phone both office & residents to get details. Questions are designed in such a way that they will cover following factors: ♦ Credit Entity’s identity ♦ Stability of residents ♦ Family Structures & Age ♦ Sources of Income ♦ Own house or rented house. ♦ Vehicles or Assets Owned. ♦ Standard of Living. There are some entities, which are considered as negative profile, which will come to know at the time of investigation. The usual negative profiles are; ♦ Contractual Employees ♦ Politicians ♦ Policemen (Except IPS & IAS) ♦ Video Parlor Operators ♦ Bar Owners ♦ Chit Funds ♦ Real Estate Agency ♦ Advocates (Except High Court & Supreme Court lawyers) ♦ Film industry professionals ♦ Builders, Contractors & Building Materials Suppliers

For the above-mentioned profiles, all banks/finance companies are taking precautions before approving files. Precautions like low LTV (Loan To Value) like 50 to 60%, shorter tenure like 2 to 3 yrs, etc. Moreover in Sundaram Finance Ltd., there is no separate Agency for field Investigation & tele verification and this process get done through their own staff. Field officers are visiting customer’s residence & office and submit the reports to the branch manager for approval.

Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

Page 51

“Procedural Study & Market Share Determination on Maruti Finance” at ICICI Bank

Step 6 LOAN APPROVAL
After the field and tele verification has been done, the agency sends the report back to the bank confirming the customer status. If the report is positive, then further loan procedure is preceded or if the report shows negative the case is dropped at first instance itself. If the negative status in the FI Report is for minor reasons, sales manager /credit manager are taking deviations. The documents collected from the customer are taken to bank. The person approving the loan is known as Credit Manager or Credit Buyer. His duty is to see the customer profile and approve the loan accordingly. The Bank / Finance Companies have their own criteria’s and procedures for approval of loans and based on these, the Credit Manager will approve the loan. However these criteria’s & procedures will differ from one Bank to another. The main outlooks of these criteria’s & procedures stands below in respect to following companies.

ICICI BANK & HDFC BANK:
Linking of FI reports: After the completion of tele verification & filed verification, the credit department (CPA) in the bank will link the above report to concerned customer files. Dedup Match: In this procedure, Credit Processing Authority will cross verify the earlier banking habits of the customer with ICICI or other banks. In case of existing customer they are cross checking the savings/current account transactions, credit card transactions, housing/car loan repayment records etc., to confirm the creditability of the customer. If the customer is not an existing customer, then with the help of date of birth they can access the customer’s creditability with other banks/ financial institutions. After assessing the above all, the profile stands negative then the file get rejected immediately at this stage otherwise the files moves towards preparation of CAM.

Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

Page 52

“Procedural Study & Market Share Determination on Maruti Finance” at ICICI Bank

Credit Assess Memo: Now the CPA people are authorized to prepare a CAM based on customer profile and they are also authorized to recommend the percentage of LTV (Loan to Value). In this CAM they are mentioning the income stability of the customer, banking stability of the customer, job continuity of the customer, business continuity of the customer, business stability of the customer, residence continuity of the customer, ownership resident/office of the customer and about co-applicant also if required. Based on the above criteria they are fixing / recommending LoanToValue (LTV) Grid as shown in the chart below. LTV GRID Income Tenure Category 1 Category 2 Category 3 Category 4 Category 5 <60K & NIP 1-3 70% 70% 60% 50% 60K-100K 1-3 4-5 85% 85% 70% 70% 70% 50% >100K-150K 1-3 4-5 85% 85% 85% 80% 75% 50% >150K 1-3 4-5 90% 85% 85% 80% 75% 50% 60% -

In case of NIP (No Income Proof) or income is less than Rs.60,000 normally they are approving only 60 to 70% LTV, for a tenure of maximum of three years. Like that based on customer income as per Income Tax Returns the LTV and the Tenure will take a hike as shown in the above chart. The categories shown in the above table are based on the segment of cars like; CAT 1 – Maruti 800 / Omni CAT 2 – Alto / Zen / Wagon R / Swift CAT 3 – Esteem / Baleno / Versa CAT 4 – Vitara After considering eligibility of the customer as per above gird they will mention the percentage of LTV to be granted to the customer in the CAM Approval by Credit Manager:

In this stage the full file with CAM will come over to Credit Manager’s desk to sign for final approval. After the scrutiny of file along with the CAM, if he is satisfied he can approve the

Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

Page 53

“Procedural Study & Market Share Determination on Maruti Finance” at ICICI Bank
proposal for an eligible amount or other wise he may reduce the percentage of LTV to the extent of discomfort he founds in approval E.g. If a customer’s applied LTV is 90% for 5 years and eligible LTV as per CAM is 75% for 5 years, he can approve for a maximum extent 75% for 5 years. If he feels discomfort with file, the LTV/Tenure may come down like he can approve for 75% for 3 years or 70% for 5 years etc.,

Deviation on Approval:

Sometimes, if the applied LTV is more and same it is not under the Credit Manager’s Discretion, he can ask for his superior’s consent or approval for such cases. The following table shows the flow/chain of authority people for approvals.

Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

Page 54

“Procedural Study & Market Share Determination on Maruti Finance” at ICICI Bank
CREDIT MANAGER

AREA CREDIT MANAGER

REGIONAL CREDIT MANAGER

ZONAL CREDIT MANAGER

NATIONAL CREDIT MANAGER

The above chart also reveals that a common customer’s file can go up to National Credit Manager’s level to take approval for applied LTV. One more interesting fact is that the process of these approvals takes place within a span of few minutes.

CITI CORP MARUTI FINANCE LTD : The process of linking of FI reports, Dedup Match, preparation of CAM is more or less same as in the ICICI/ HDFC Bank. The Credit Manager in the Bank authorized to do final approval with the consent of Sales Manager. Since CMFL is not approving more than 90% of LTV, the chances of deviations are very less. Comparing to ICICI/HDFC, here the maximum tenure also restricted to five years. CMFL also giving special consideration on approval and tenures for Citi Bank Suvidha account holders and Citi Bank card holders. But maximum LTV and tenures are same for all.

MARUTI COUNTRYWIDE AUTO FINANCIAL SERVICES LTD: As mention earlier the system of approval process also centralized at Regional office, (e.g.: Chennai is the regional office for all logins of Karnataka). Once the file is “Soft approved” ( prima-facie approval ), the linking of FI reports, Dedup Match, preparation of CAM are

Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

Page 55

“Procedural Study & Market Share Determination on Maruti Finance” at ICICI Bank
processed at regional office. At the end, the file goes to Credit manager at regional office for “Hard approval”. After hard approval, they will update the status of the file in online. Within a fraction of seconds after hard approval, Sales manager at local office can access the status of a file and he can go ahead for further process.

KOTAK MAHINDRA PRIMUS LTD. In Kotak Mahindra, the system of approval is flexible compared to all above banks. After linking of FI reports, the Credit Manager approves the files as per credit norms. In case of deviations, file moves to Location Head/Branch Head for final approval. If LTV is more than 95%, Area Manager or Head Office (Mumbai) approval is necessary.

SUNDARAM FINANCE LTD Field Officers at Sundaram Finance Ltd., are doing both field verification and primary approval also. Once the file is primary approved by field officers Branch Manager’s green signal gives final approval on the file. Since the branch is entirely responsible for selling of car loans and recovery of loans, they are personally evaluating the customers’ stability, repayment capacity and guarantors profile rather than a mere verification of document/papers. Noticeably, SFL is the only one finance company accepts a third party guarantor as a coapplicant compared to other finance companies as they are accepting only family members (blood relatives) as guarantors. It is observed here that the percentage of recovery is more in SFL only due to this Third party guarantor.

Step 7 COLLECTION OF POST DOCUMENTS All banks / finance companies are having same system of collection of post documents. After the approval, the executives has to visit customers place to collect post documents and they will hand it over to the bank to attach with customer file.

Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

Page 56

“Procedural Study & Market Share Determination on Maruti Finance” at ICICI Bank
The following is the list of post documents to be collected by the executives ♦ Agreement Copy (Duly signed by applicant) ♦ Money Margin Receipt. ♦ Post-dated cheque’s or Security Cheques (According to the finance co & tenure) r ♦ Electronic Clearing System (ECS) (For Salaried Class) ♦ Own house proof (Optional) ♦ Repayment Track (Optional) ♦ Credit Card Statement (Optional) Note: The ECS system is not applicable for KMPL & SFL companies, customers has to submit post dated cheques only since the company does not have the facility of ECS.

Step 8 RATE APPROVAL & DEVIATION ON RATE APPROVAL:

The rate of interest is one of the most important factors to attract the customer towards car loans. The six finance partners, who have tied up with Maruti Finance, are giving very competitive rates to its customers. Before starting Maruti Finance some finance companies

Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

Page 57

“Procedural Study & Market Share Determination on Maruti Finance” at ICICI Bank
are charging more than 15% per annum for car buyers. The entrance of Maruti Finance, reduced the rate of interest by restricting it’s channel partners. In all the banks Branch Head/Sales Managers are authorized to fix/approve rate of interest. Normally, prevailing rate of interest to customer is 9% to 10% for Maruti 800/ Omni, 8.5% to 9.5% for Alto / Zen / Wagon R / Swift, 7.5% to 8.5% for Esteem / Baleno / Versa. These rates are possible only after giving some subsidy / subvention from Maruti Udyog Limited or Dealers. Some banks like ICICI & HDFC, for the rate approvals only Branch Head is not authorized to approve all rates. For deviation they are moving such files to higher officials like Area Sales Manager, Regional Sales Manager, Zonal Sales Manager, National Sales Manager and finally to Business Head.

Step 9 DISBURSEMENTS After getting rate approval, the file moves to Operation Department cum Finance Department for Final Disbursements where the approved loans are getting readied for payments to the dealer.

Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

Page 58

Step 10 ISSUE OF DELIVERY ORDER & FORM – 20 TO DEALERSHIP After completion of disbursement process, the Operation Department will issue a delivery order to the dealer. It contains the loan amount, EMI, the dealer discounts if any adjusted and the disbursement amount. Along with the delivery order, they are also issuing a Form – 20 which is required for registration of vehicle at the Regional Transport Authority. Step 11 DELIVERY OF CARS TO CUSTOMERS On the basis of the financier’s Form – 20 & delivery order, the dealer will register vehicle with the hypothecation of concerned financier. After registration customer will get the delivery of vehicle. Once the new car is purchased the following documents have to be submitted to the RTO for registration purposes;        Copy of the invoice - (photocopy) Copy of the insurance cover-note / policy Residence proof. PUC certificate issued by the manufacturer (form no. - 22) Form -20 Imprint of Chassis No. PAN / GIR No 4 Photos

Step 12 MAKING PAYMENT TO DEALERSHIP More or less all Maruti Finance Partners arranged inventory funding/trade advance facilities to the dealership. In such case banks / finance companies are not supposed to prepare Cheques / drafts to release the payment. Since under inventory funding dealership is having online account with the finance companies and within a few minutes the payment will get credited to dealer inventory funding/trade advance account. Or otherwise, the dealer is not availed such a inventory/trade advance facility from the bank / finance companies, then the bank/finance company will pay the amount of disbursal through cheque /demand drafts. STEP 13 COLLECTION OF RC BOOK, & INVOICE COPY FROM DEALER After all payments are over the dealer issues RC Book & Invoice copy to customers.

Major Findings
On Maruti Finance consortium From the study it has been clear that, ICICI & HDFC Banks are getting stronger and they cover nearly 80% of Total Volumes which seems to be monopolistic situation .If same situation continues, it is very difficult for other Maruti Finance Partners to continue partnership with MFL. This was also the main reason for ABN Amro Bank and Standard Charted bank discontinuing partnership with Maruti Finance. On Bimal Auto Agency Bimal has been maintained comparatively consistent over different Maruti Finance Partners. It has been evidenced by All India Market Share & Bimal market share of Different Financier. (See Fig 4-5) Bimal as an authorized Maruti Dealer has been growing over a period of time. It has been evidenced by Turnover achieved from last three years and still rising. On Maruti Finance Maruti Finance involves minimum paper documents.. They are providing good services to customers in time with minimum loan formalities Documents which are given to book the Maruti vehicle & to avail the Mauti Finance almost all same. Before the introduction of maruti finance customers used to run to different financial institutions for availing car loans, but now on introduction of Maruti Finance it has eased the customer problems. Usually, Customer doesn’t find any difficulty in taking delivery of the vehicle if he availed Maruti Finance. Because generally all Maruti Dealers do have Inventory Funding Account with Financier, which would not only help dealer to make bulk purchase from Maruti Udyog, but also have payments of loan disbursed with minimum loss of time & formalities.

Since MUL has got National Level Tie up with leading Finance Companies They are giving top priority to Maruti Finance customers in the way of; ♦ Maximum funding on vehicles (up to 100%) ♦ Giving loans for longer tenure, (up to 8 years) ♦ Flexi schemes like step up emi scheme, Bullet payment scheme, etc. ♦ Competitive rate of interest. Even though the files are processed for approval through various desks, it will consume only a few minutes to have its final touch from higher authority (National Level) also. On Approvals Loan Approvals are based on lot of criteria like income stability, residence continuity, job stability, previous loan repayment record, credit card track record, banking habit etc Since banks are looking for all criterias there are chances wherin approved loan amount may be lesser than applied one

Suggestions
From the study it has been clear that, ICICI & HDFC Banks are getting stronger and they cover nearly 80% of Total Volumes which seems to be monopolistic situation .If same situation continues, it is very difficult for other Maruti Finance Partners. Faster Loan Procession The documentation process followed by Maruti Finance seems to be a rather lengthy process. This needs to further curtailed lengthy processes usually robs the interest of the customers. Lower Jargons It seems to be different rate of interest for different customers Maruti Finance need to adopt the more transparent interest rate charges. Different rate brings in more complexity between both the parties i.e. Maruti Finance and the Customer Be More Aggressive Out og the total cars sold at Bimal only about 50 % are bean financed through Maruthi Finance. This shows that still there is high scope for tapping the market. Maruthi Finance has to adopt more aggressive strategies towards the same. Vested Interests There seams to be a dominance of only two major banks that is ICICI & HDFC. This may sometimes result in vested interests or dictatorial terms by these two major partners. Be an independent entity The question here is why cant MUL with such a huge market share become a independent financing company instead of getting tied up with other financial institutions. It shows the dependency of Maruthi Finance which may force lead the other sources to misuse the situation. The companies like GE, Reliance, TATA etc have their own financing companies. Thus this can be a good way towards the future growth of the firm.

Extended working hours.

Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com

Page 71

“Procedural Study & Market Share Determination on Maruti Finance” at ICICI Bank
Bimal can extend its working hours from 7pm to 8.30pm. as the location of Bimal is located near the ITPL, where most of the customers are working & get free in evening. This will help the customers satisfaction.
