On the successful completion of this project I would like to express gratitude to all the people who have helped me in completion of this project. I wish to extend
my deep and sincere gratitude to Ms.Mallika Gupta , Mr.Himashu Puri and Mr.Rishi Khandelwal to take out time from their busy schedules to provide me with their able guidance at the time of need and who also helped me whole heartedly to achieve the ultimate goal of the study. I would also like thank Ms. Neelu Gupta and Ms. Rashmi Srivastav for providing me guidance for understanding the operations of the Bank.
I would especially like to thank Mr.Sandeep Singh Sandhu Retail Manager Branch Banking, Mr. Rahul Krishnatrey Branch Manager Connaught Place branch, Mr. Vikas Kukereja Branch Operation Manager Connaught Place branch who gave me this opportunity to work with the second largest bank of India ICICI and at their very first branch located at Connaught Place, New Delhi.
Finally would like to express my gratitude to Dr. M.S.Verma, Prof. Nitin Seth, Jagan Institute of Management Studies and its faculty for providing me with this learning opportunity.
The main object of the project was to learn about the various products that the bank had to offer to the customers, learn about the latest 5 ‘S’ Philosophy that the bank has implemented, also learn the Retail Business Development Model that is
basically a new dimension of selling product to customers, analyze the awareness of the Bank@home service with existing customers, educate them regarding the same and motivate them to enroll for the service and also try to assess why the customers are resisting to use the service and finally encourage corporate organizations that maintain their salary accounts with the bank to get a corporate box installed in their office premises.
In order to understand and analyze the awareness of Bank@home service a questionnaire was prepared and the focus was on the walk inns at the branch that already are customers of the bank. The idea was to analyze the various issues as mentioned above. The analysis showed that many of the existing customers who live even far off from the branch have high frequency of visits to the branch. The analysis also clearly showed that the awareness regarding the service was extremely low. The Bank had to promote the service in order to reach out to the customers and make its presence felt. Observation also indicated that the foot falls at the Connaught Place branch actually come from almost all parts of the city irrespective of the relationship the customers have with the branches through out the city, making the task even more difficult the drop boxes throughout the city have not been strategically been placed there various locations that do not have the drop boxes but there is high number of foot fall from the area. Also this lead to the understanding that the policy to install drop boxes in areas is very faulty and the corporate office must look into the matter. For awareness of the service I gave awareness strategies, Promotional strategies, Pamphlet to educate customers regarding the service, places where the drop boxes should be placed, and some suggestions to overcome the problem.
For Corporate Boxes the task was straight forward but tricky to handle, A list of organizations that had salary account relationship with the Connaught Place branch was given, The idea was to visit the organizations meet the person concerned and explain to him in the most professional manner the function of the Corporate box and its advantage to the employees, get a set of documents signed that had details regarding the service and a letter that indicates that the organization is willing to accept the Corporate box, and then finally spend time with each employee of the organization for educating g them regarding the service and then enrolling them for
the same. I was able to convince 5 organizations to install a corporate box and give leads of concerned person of 3 organizations however they required a senior person visiting them, and was unable to appointment with 2 organizations from a list of 10 organizations that I had to cover.
For my task of learning the various products and their features I was guided by the executives at the bank a lot of observation went in and sufficient data form the internet was used to understand the products. The 5 ‘S’ Philosophy which is only for the employees of the bank was available to me through observation, guidance of superior employees. The task of understanding the RBD model was fully through the humble guidance of Mr.Rishi Khandelwal Regional Sales Manager. The RBD model of sales has high significance as the scope of banking products is expanding.

OVER-VIEW OF THE INDUSTRY
INTRODUCTION TO THE INDUSTRY
The banking sector reforms undertaken in Indiafrom 1992 onwards were basically aimed at ensuring the safety and soundness of financial institutions and at the same time at making the banking system strong, efficient, functionally diverse and competitive. The reforms included measures for arresting the decline in productivity, efficiency and profitability of the banking sector. Furthermore, it was recognized that the Indian banking system should be in tune with international standards of capital adequacy, prudential regulations, and accounting and disclosure standards. Financial soundness and consistent supervisory practices, as evident in our level of compliance with the Basel Committee.s Core Principles for Effective Banking Supervision, have made our banking system resilient to global shocks.
India has not faced any major economic/financial crises, though in 199091, there was some pressure on the external sector with the current account deficit and external debt servicing reaching large proportions. However, due to prudent macroeconomic policies, it was possible to return the country to a sustainable growth path. As well as the long history of regulation and supervision, Indian banks have limited exposure to sensitive sectors such as real estate, equity, etc, strict
control over off-balance sheet activities, larger holdings of government bonds (which helps limit credit risk), relatively well- diversified credit portfolios, statutory restrictions on connected lending, adequate control over currency and maturity mismatches, etc, which has insulated them from the adverse impact of financial crisis and contagion. Banks in Indiahave played a significant role in the development of the Indian economy. However, with the structural reforms initiated in the real economy from the early 1990s, it was imperative that a vibrant and competitive financial system should be put in place to sustain the ongoing process of reforms in the real sector. The financial sector reforms have provided the necessary platform for the banking sector to operate on the basis of operational flexibility and functional autonomy, thereby enhancing efficiency, productivity and profitability. The reforms also brought about structural changes in the financial sector andsucceeded in easing external constraints on its operation, introducing transparency in reporting procedures, restructuring and recapitalising banks and enhancing the competitive element in the market through the entry of new banks. The ongoing revolution in information and communication technology has, however, largely bypassed the Indian banking system given the low initial level of automation. The competitive environment created by financial sector reforms has nonetheless compelled the banks to gradually adopt modern technology, albeit to a limited extent, to maintain their market share. Banks continue to bethe major financial intermediaries with a share of 64% of total financial assets. However, non-bank financial companies and developmentfinance institutions are also emerging as alternative sources of funding. In India, foreign banks account for only around 8% of the total assets of the banking system. Further, domestic households are not allowed to place deposits abroad.
Similarly, conditions for accessingoverseas capital markets by domestic corporates have been stringent, in terms of size, maturity, pricing, etc. The impact of the entry of foreign banks on domestic banks is likely to depend on various factors such as the structure, strength and competitiveness of domestic banks, the share of foreign banks, and the regulatory/supervisory framework. While the entry of foreign banks could definitely improve the competitive environment, they are not likely to weaken domestic banks. With better technologyand expertise in offering specialised banking products such as derivatives, advisory services, trade finance, etc, the entry of foreign banks can enhance healthy competition and has a positive spillover effect on the domestic banks. The domestic banks would be under peer pressure to improve operational efficiency. It needs, however, to be recognised that the banking system in India is quite competitive with the presence of public, private and foreign banks. Thus, the major forces for change in the Indian context have been the following: - consistent and strong regulatory and supervisory framework; - structural reforms in the real and financial sectors; - commitmentto adopt and refine regulatory and supervisory standards on a par with international best practices; and -competition from foreign banks and new-generation private sector banks.
In India the banks are being segregated in different groups. Each group has their own benefits and limitations in operating in India. Each has their own dedicated target market. Few of them only work in rural sector while others in both rural as well as urban. Many even are only catering in cities. Some are of Indian origin and some are foreign players.
Among the Public Sector Banks in India, United Bank of India is one of the 14 major banks which were nationalised on July 19, 1969. Its predecessor, in the Public Sector Banks, the United Bank of India Ltd., was formed in 1950 with the amalgamation of four banks viz. Comilla Banking Corporation Ltd. (1914), Bengal Central Bank Ltd. (1918), Comilla Union Bank Ltd. (1922) and Hooghly Bank Ltd. (1932). Oriental Bank of Commerce (OBC), a Governmet of India Undertaking offers Domestic, NRI and Commercial banking services. OBC is implementing a GRAMEEN PROJECT in Dehradun District (UP) and Hanumangarh District (Raiasthan) disbursing small loans. This Public Secotor Bank India has implemented 14 point action plan for strengthening of credit delivery to women and has designated 5 branches as specialized branches for women entrepreneurs
Private banking in India was practiced since the begining of banking system in India. The first private bank in India to be set up in Private Sector Banks in India was IndusInd Bank. It is one of the fastest growing Bank Private Sector Banks in India. IDBI ranks the tength largest development bank in the world as Private Banks in India and has promoted a world class institutions in India. The first Private Bank in India to receive an in principle approval from the Reserve Bank of India was Housing Development Finance Corporation Limited, to set up a bank in the private sector banks in India as part of the RBI's liberalisation of the Indian Banking Industry. It was incorporated in August 1994 as HDFC Bank Limited with registered office in Mumbai and commenced operations as Scheduled Commercial Bank in January 1995. ING Vysya, yet another Private Bank of India was incorporated in the year 1930. Bangalore has a pride of place for having the first branch inception in the year
1934. With successive years of patronage and constantly setting new standards in banking, ING Vysya Bank has many credits to its account.
The Co operative banks in India started functioning almost 100 years ago. The Cooperative bank is an important constituent of the Indian Financial System, judging by the role assigned to co operative, the expectations the co operative is supposed to fulfil, their number, and the number of offices the cooperative bank operate. Though the co operative movement originated in the West, but the importance of such banks have assumed in India is rarely paralleled anywhere else in the world. The cooperative banks in India plays an important role even today in rural financing. The businessess of cooperative bank in the urban areas also has increased phenomenally in recent years due to the sharp increase in the number of primary co-operative banks. Co operative Banks in India are registered under the Co-operative Societies Act. The cooperative bank is also regulated by the RBI. They are governed by the Banking Regulations Act 1949 and Banking Laws (Co-operative Societies) Act, 1965.
Rural banking in India started since the establishment of banking sector in India. Rural Banks in those days mainly focussed upon the agro sector. Regional rural banks in India penetrated every corner of the country and extended a helping hand in the growth process of the country. SBI has 30 Regional Rural Banks in India known as RRBs. The rural banks of SBI is spread in 13 states extending from Kashmir to Karnataka and Himachal Pradesh to North East. The total number of SBIs Regional Rural Banks in India branches is 2349 (16%). Till date in rural banking in India, there are 14,475 rural banks in the country of which 2126 (91%) are located in remote rural areas. Apart from SBI, there are other few banks which functions for the development of
the rural areas in India. Few of them are as follows. Haryana State Cooperative Apex Bank Limited The Haryana State Cooperative Apex Bank Ltd. commonly called as HARCOBANK plays a vital role in rural banking in the economy of Haryana State and has been providing aids and financing farmers, rural artisans, agricultural labourers, entrepreneurs, etc. in the state and giving service to its depositors. NABARD National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) is a development bank in the sector of Regional Rural Banks in India. It provides and regulates credit and gives service for the promotion and development of rural sectors mainly agriculture, small scale industries, cottage and village industries, handicrafts. It also finance rural crafts and other allied rural economic activities to promote integrated rural development. It helps in securing rural prosperity and its connected matters. Sindhanur Urban Souharda Co-operative Bank Sindhanur Urban Souharda Co-operative Bank, popularly known as SUCO BANK is the first of its kind in rural banks of India. The impressive story of its inception is interesting and inspiring for all the youth of this country. United Bank of India United Bank of India (UBI) also plays an important role in regional rural banks. It has expanded its branch network in a big way to actively participate in the developmental of the rural and semi-urban areas in conformity with the objectives of nationalisation. Syndicate Bank Syndicate Bank was firmly rooted in rural India as rural banking and have a clear vision of future India by understanding the grassroot realities. Its progress has been
abreast of the phase of progressive banking in India especially in rural banks.
Foreign Banks in India always brought an explanation about the prompt services to customers. After the set up foreign banks in India, the banking sector in India also become competitive and accurative. New rules announced by the Reserve Bank of India for the foreign banks in India in this budget has put up great hopes among foreign banks which allows them to grow unfettered. Now foreign banks in India are permitted to set up local subsidiaries. The policy conveys that forign banks in India may not acquire Indian ones (except for weak banks identified by the RBI, on its terms) and their Indian subsidiaries will not be able to open branches freely. Please see the list of Foreign banks in India till date.

By the year 2009, the list of foreign banks in India is going to become more quantitative as number of foreign banks are still waiting with baggage to start business in India. By 2009 few more names is going to be added in the list of foreign banks in India. This is as an aftermath of the sudden interest shown by Reserve Bank of India paving roadmap for foreign banks in India greater freedom in India. Among them is the world's best private bank by EuroMoney magazine, Switzerland's UBS. The following are the list of foreign banks going to set up business in India • • • • • Royal Bank of Scotland Switzerland's UBS US-based GE Capital Credit Suisse Group Industrial and Commercial Bank of China
Merrill Lynch is having a joint venture in Indian investment banking space -- DSP Merrill Lynch. Goldman Sachs holds stakes in Kotak Mahindra arms.
GE Capital is also having a wide presence in consumer finance through GE Capital India. India's GDP is seen growing at a robust pace of around 7% over the next few years, throwing up opportunities for the banking sector to profit from. The credit of banks has risen by over 25% in 2004-05 and the growth momentum is expected to continue over the next four to five years. Participation in the growth curve of the Indian economy in the next four years will provide foreign banks a launch pad for greater business expansion when they get more freedom after April 2009.
The central bank of the country is the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). It was established in April 1935 with a share capital of Rs. 5 crores on the basis of the recommendations of the Hilton Young Commission. The share capital was divided into shares of Rs. 100 each fully paid which was entirely owned by private shareholders in the begining. The Government held shares of nominal value of Rs. 2,20,000. Reserve Bank of India was nationalised in the year 1949. The general superintendence and direction of the Bank is entrusted to Central Board of Directors of 20 members, the Governor and four Deputy Governors, one Government official from the Ministry of Finance, ten nominated Directors by the Government to give representation to important elements in the economic life of the country, and four nominated Directors by the Central Government to represent the four local Boards with the headquarters at Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai and New Delhi. Local Boards consist of five members each Central Government appointed
for a term of four years to represent territorial and economic interests and the interests of co-operative and indigenous banks. The Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934 was commenced on April 1, 1935. The Act, 1934 (II of 1934) provides the statutory basis of the functioning of the Bank. The Bank was constituted for the need of following: • To regulate the issue of banknotes • To maintain reserves with a view to securing monetary stability and • To operate the credit and currency system of the country to its advantage. Functions of Reserve Bank of India The Reserve Bank of India Act of 1934 entrust all the important functions of a central bank the Reserve Bank of India. Bank of Issue Under Section 22 of the Reserve Bank of India Act, the Bank has the sole right to issue bank notes of all denominations. The distribution of one rupee notes and coins and small coins all over the country is undertaken by the Reserve Bank as agent of the Government. The Reserve Bank has a separate Issue Department which is entrusted with the issue of currency notes. The assets and liabilities of the Issue Department are kept separate from those of the Banking Department. Originally, the assets of the Issue Department were to consist of not less than twofifths of gold coin, gold bullion or sterling securities provided the amount of gold was not less than Rs. 40 crores in value. The remaining three-fifths of the assets might be held in rupee coins, Government of India rupee securities, eligible bills of exchange and promissory notes payable in India. Due to the exigencies of the Second World War and the post-was period, these provisions were considerably modified. Since 1957, the Reserve Bank of India is required to maintain gold and foreign exchange reserves of Ra. 200 crores, of which at least Rs. 115 crores should be in gold. The system as it exists today is known as the minimum reserve system. Banker to Government
The second important function of the Reserve Bank of India is to act as Government banker, agent and adviser. The Reserve Bank is agent of Central Government and of all State Governments in India excepting that of Jammu and Kashmir. The Reserve Bank has the obligation to transact Government business, via. to keep the cash balances as deposits free of interest, to receive and to make payments on behalf of the Government and to carry out their exchange remittances and other banking operations. The Reserve Bank of India helps the Government both the Union and the States to float new loans and to manage public debt. The Bank makes ways and means advances to the Governments for 90 days. It makes loans and advances to the States and local authorities. It acts as adviser to the Government on all monetary and banking matters. Bankers' Bank and Lender of the Last Resort The Reserve Bank of India acts as the bankers' bank. According to the provisions of the Banking Companies Act of 1949, every scheduled bank was required to maintain with the Reserve Bank a cash balance equivalent to 5% of its demand liabilites and 2 per cent of its time liabilities in India. By an amendment of 1962, the distinction between demand and time liabilities was abolished and banks have been asked to keep cash reserves equal to 3 per cent of their aggregate deposit liabilities. The minimum cash requirements can be changed by the Reserve Bank of India. The scheduled banks can borrow from the Reserve Bank of India on the basis of eligible securities or get financial accommodation in times of need or stringency by rediscounting bills of exchange. Since commercial banks can always expect the Reserve Bank of India to come to their help in times of banking crisis the Reserve Bank becomes not only the banker's bank but also the lender of the last resort. Controller of Credit The Reserve Bank of India is the controller of credit i.e. it has the power to influence the volume of credit created by banks in India. It can do so through changing the Bank rate or through open market operations. According to the Banking Regulation Act of 1949, the Reserve Bank of India can ask any particular
bank or the whole banking system not to lend to particular groups or persons on the basis of certain types of securities. Since 1956, selective controls of credit are increasingly being used by the Reserve Bank. The Reserve Bank of India is armed with many more powers to control the Indian money market. Every bank has to get a licence from the Reserve Bank of India to do banking business within India, the licence can be cancelled by the Reserve Bank of certain stipulated conditions are not fulfilled. Every bank will have to get the permission of the Reserve Bank before it can open a new branch. Each scheduled bank must send a weekly return to the Reserve Bank showing, in detail, its assets and liabilities. This power of the Bank to call for information is also intended to give it effective control of the credit system. The Reserve Bank has also the power to inspect the accounts of any commercial bank. As supereme banking authority in the country, the Reserve Bank of India, therefore, has the following powers: (a) It holds the cash reserves of all the scheduled banks. (b) It controls the credit operations of banks through quantitative and qualitative controls. (c) It controls the banking system through the system of licensing, inspection and calling for information. (d) It acts as the lender of the last resort by providing rediscount facilities to scheduled banks. Custodian of Foreign Reserves The Reserve Bank of India has the responsibility to maintain the official rate of exchange. According to the Reserve Bank of India Act of 1934, the Bank was required to buy and sell at fixed rates any amount of sterling in lots of not less than Rs. 10,000. The rate of exchange fixed was Re. 1 = sh. 6d. Since 1935 the Bank was able to maintain the exchange rate fixed at lsh.6d. though there were periods of extreme pressure in favour of or against
the rupee. After India became a member of the International Monetary Fund in 1946, the Reserve Bank has the responsibility of maintaining fixed exchange rates with all other member countries of the I.M.F. Besides maintaining the rate of exchange of the rupee, the Reserve Bank has to act as the custodian of India's reserve of international currencies. The vast sterling balances were acquired and managed by the Bank. Further, the RBI has the responsibility of administering the exchange controls of the country. Supervisory functions In addition to its traditional central banking functions, the Reserve bank has certain non-monetary functions of the nature of supervision of banks and promotion of sound banking in India. The Reserve Bank Act, 1934, and the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 have given the RBI wide powers of supervision and control over commercial and co-operative banks, relating to licensing and establishments, branch expansion, liquidity of their assets, management and methods of working, amalgamation, reconstruction, and liquidation. The RBI is authorised to carry out periodical inspections of the banks and to call for returns and necessary information from them. The nationalisation of 14 major Indian scheduled banks in July 1969 has imposed new responsibilities on the RBI for directing the growth of banking and credit policies towards more rapid development of the economy and realisation of certain desired social objectives. The supervisory functions of the RBI have helped a great deal in improving the standard of banking in India to develop on sound lines and to improve the methods of their operation. Promotional functions With economic growth assuming a new urgency since Independence, the range of the Reserve Bank's functions has steadily widened. The Bank now performs a varietyof developmental and promotional functions, which, at one time, were regarded as outside the normal scope of central banking. The Reserve Bank was asked to promote banking habit, extend banking facilities to rural and semi-urban areas, and establish and promote new specialised financing agencies. Accordingly, the Reserve Bank has helped in the setting up of the IFCI and the SFC; it set up the Deposit Insurance Corporation in 1962, the Unit Trust of India in 1964, the
Industrial Development Bank of India also in 1964, the Agricultural Refinance Corporation of India in 1963 and the Industrial Reconstruction Corporation of India in 1972. These institutions were set up directly or indirectly by the Reserve Bank to promote saving habit and to mobilise savings, and to provide industrial finance as well as agricultural finance. As far back as 1935, the Reserve Bank of India set up the Agricultural Credit Department to provide agricultural credit. But only since 1951 the Bank's role in this field has become extremely important. The Bank has developed the co-operative credit movement to encourage saving, to eliminate moneylenders from the villages and to route its short term credit to agriculture. The RBI has set up the Agricultural Refinance and Development Corporation to provide long-term finance to farmers. Classification of RBIs functions The monetary functions also known as the central banking functions of the RBI are related to control and regulation of money and credit, i.e., issue of currency, control of bank credit, control of foreign exchange operations, banker to the Government and to the money market. Monetary functions of the RBI are significant as they control and regulate the volume of money and credit in the country. Equally important, however, are the non-monetary functions of the RBI in the context of India's economic backwardness. The supervisory function of the RBI may be regarded as a non-monetary function (though many consider this a monetary function). The promotion of sound banking in India is an important goal of the RBI, the RBI has been given wide and drastic powers, under the Banking Regulation Act of 1949 - these powers relate to licencing of banks, branch expansion, liquidity of their assets, management and methods of working, inspection, amalgamation, reconstruction and liquidation. Under the RBI's supervision and inspection, the working of banks has greatly improved. Commercial banks have developed into financially and operationally sound and viable units. The RBI's powers of supervision have now been extended to nonbanking financial intermediaries. Since independence, particularly after its nationalisation 1949, the RBI has followed the promotional functions vigorously and has been responsible for strong financial support to industrial and agricultural development in the country
CHAPTER 2 COMPANYS PROFILE
INTRODUCTION TO ICICI BANK
ICICI Bank is India's second-largest bank with total assets of about Rs.1,67,659 crore at March 31, 2005 and profit after tax of Rs. 2,005 crore for the year ended March 31, 2005 (Rs. 1,637 crore in fiscal 2004). ICICI Bank has a network of about 560 branches and extension counters and over 1,900 ATMs. ICICI Bank offers a wide range of banking products and financial services to corporate and retail customers through a variety of delivery channels and through its specialized subsidiaries and affiliates in the areas of investment banking, life and non-life insurance, venture capital and asset management.
ICICI Bank set up its international banking group in fiscal 2002 to cater to the cross border needs of clients and leverage on its domestic banking strengths to offer products internationally. ICICI Bank currently has subsidiaries in the United Kingdom and Canada, branches in Singapore and Bahrain and representative offices in the United States, China, United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh and South Africa.
ICICI Bank's equity shares are listed in India on the Stock Exchange, Mumbai and the National Stock Exchange of India Limited and its American Depositary Receipts (ADRs) are listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). As required by the stock exchanges, ICICI Bank has formulated a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics for its directors and employees.
At April 4, 2005, ICICI Bank, with free float market capitalization of about Rs. 308.00 billion (US$ 7.00 billion) ranked third amongst all the companies listed on the Indian stock exchanges.
ICICI Bank was originally promoted in 1994 by ICICI Limited, an Indian financial institution, and was its wholly-owned subsidiary. ICICI's shareholding in ICICI Bank was reduced to 46% through a public offering of shares in India in fiscal 1998, an equity offering in the form of ADRs listed on the NYSE in fiscal 2000, ICICI Bank's acquisition of Bank of Madura Limited in an all-stock amalgamation in fiscal 2001, and secondary market sales by ICICI to institutional investors in fiscal 2001 and fiscal 2002. ICICI was formed in 1955 at the initiative of the World Bank, the Government of India and representatives of Indian industry. The principal objective was to create a development financial institution for providing medium-term and long-term project financing to Indian businesses. In the 1990s, ICICI transformed its business from a development financial institution offering only project finance to a diversified financial services group offering a wide variety of products and services, both directly and through a number of subsidiaries and affiliates like ICICI Bank. In 1999, ICICI become the first Indian company and the first bank or financial institution from non-Japan Asia to be listed on the NYSE.
After consideration of various corporate structuring alternatives in the context of the emerging competitive scenario in the Indian banking industry, and the move towards universal banking, the managements of ICICI and ICICI Bank formed the view that the merger of ICICI with ICICI Bank would be the optimal strategic alternative for both entities, and would create the optimal legal structure for the ICICI group's universal banking strategy. The merger would enhance value for ICICI shareholders through the merged entity's access to low-cost deposits, greater opportunities for earning fee-based income and the ability to participate in the payments system and provide transaction-banking services. The merger would enhance value for ICICI Bank shareholders through a large capital base and scale of operations, seamless access to ICICI's strong corporate relationships built up over five decades, entry into new business segments, higher market share in various business segments, particularly fee-based services, and access to the vast talent pool of ICICI and its subsidiaries. In October 2001, the Boards of Directors of ICICI and ICICI Bank approved the merger of ICICI and two of its whollyowned retail finance subsidiaries, ICICI Personal Financial Services Limited and ICICI Capital Services Limited, with ICICI Bank. The merger was approved by shareholders of ICICI and ICICI Bank in January 2002, by the High Court of Gujarat at Ahmedabad in March 2002, and by the High Court of Judicature at
Mumbai and the Reserve Bank of India in April 2002. Consequent to the merger, the ICICI group's financing and banking operations, both wholesale and retail, have been integrated in a single entity.

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
SOCIAL INITIATIVES GROUP (SIG): ICICI Bank's social sector initiatives aim to resolve some of the most fundamental developmental problems facing India today. Its involvement is primarily in terms of non-commercial support to fill knowledge and practice gaps in specific thematic areas— Early Child Health, Elementary Education and Micro Financial Services. SIG interactive platform that seeks to: • Bring together participants in the development process to widen and deepen the discourse informing development practice. Interactive features include discussion boards and facilities to post papers, articles or other resources.
Publish research related to innovations and significant problems within the identified thematic areas.
• Enable online application for funding.
MISSION STATEMENT OF SIG
The mission statement of the SIG is "to identify and support initiatives designed to improve the capacities of the poorest of the poor to participate in the larger economy". The SIG believes that the three fundamental capacities any individual
should possess to be able to participate in the larger economy are in the areas of health, education and access to basic financial services. Within these broad areas, infant health at birth, elementary education and micro financial services define the areas in which the SIG’s work focuses At a very basic level, the programmes and projects supported by the SIG are required to cater to the poorest. They should enable them to become active and informed participants in socio-economic processes as opposed to passive observers. These initiatives must be output oriented, with a focus on producing measurable outcomes that meet a minimum quality requirement. The initiatives also need to be cost-effective. This is in recognition of the fact that resources are limited and their efficient use is imperative if the maximum number is to benefit. Cost-effectiveness also facilitates the adoption of the initiative in other contexts. The initiative must be scalable. Scalability implies the ability to draw upon important elements of a programme and adapt them to suit the needs of a specific situation. It should be possible to do so at a national level. Even if the programme itself is not directly scaleable, it should be possible to take away significant lessons from it in order to enrich work in other settings. All supported initiatives should have the potential for both near and long-term impact. Consequentially, it is important that the impact of these programmes, in the near and long term, be carefully understood and analyzed in a rigorous manner and not through anecdotes. It is critical to clearly understand how an initiative is performing in terms of its predetermined goals and in comparison to alternatives. There is little doubt that a complex of factors, very often beyond the control of the programme/ organization, will influence the outcome. Yet, serious and regular impact analysis can only make the programme richer and is essential. The SIG assigns greater value to programmes/ organizations that carefully examine the short-term and long-term implications of their actions. In pursuit of its goals in the three focus areas, the SIG tends to support reasonably large-sized initiatives so that issues such as cost-effectiveness, scalability and impact assessment can be dealt with more directly. These initiatives not only have the potential to provide key research inputs to other programmes, but also tend to have a large impact that benefits the communities they work with. The approach of the SIG may thus be characterized more broadly as ‘action research’, to distinguish it from pure academic research. However, in its research work and impact assessment, the SIG seeks to adhere to the highest standards of academic rigour. It
often works in partnership with academic institutions such as Institute of Rural Management Anand, KEM, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, University of California, Berkeley and the University of Southampton. It is crucial that the programmes supported by SIG be time-bound. This lends clarity to the aim of the programme and prevents its intent from getting diluted over time. The SIG works by identifying gaps in knowledge and practice in its focus areas and locating initiatives that address these gaps in a manner consistent with the SIG’s mission. The identification of research needs is followed by an in-depth analysis of the short-term and long-term implications of various forms of action. Among other things, this requires taking a comprehensive overview of work already done in the country and outside. The SIG, thus, seeks to answer certain fundamental questions in its focus areas through the projects it supports and, thereby, contribute to findings that help the sector. It should be pointed out that the SIG does not function as a rollout agency. An important feature of the SIG’s strategy is the belief in strengthening or supplementing existing systems, rather than investing in parallel structures. Another key element of its strategy is the building of long-term relationships with suitable partners. As part of this effort, the SIG works actively to improve the efficacy of these partners and ensure sustained impact. In pursuit of its goals, the SIG seeks to work actively with research agencies, NonGovernmental Organisations (NGOs), Corporates, Government departments, local stakeholders and international organisations. It should also be noted that the group believes modern technologies, particularly Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) can prove to be important facilitators if used appropriately. FOCUS AREAS OF SIG The SIG has three focus areas: • Early Child Health
• Micro Financial Services Health: Early Child Health This focus seems to have the potential for maximum long and short-term impact and appears achievable in the most cost-effective and therefore scaleable manner.ICICI Bank aims to improve individual capacity by impacting two important indicators of chronic undernutrition in the first three years at the national level: Proportion of babies born with a birth weight of less than 2.5 kg at or beyond 37 weeks of gestation (Intra-Uterine Growth retardation, IUGR) Proportion of children under three years who are stunted. Education: Elementary Education Education (and not just literacy) up to the elementary level seems to be almost a necessary condition for any individual (rich or poor) to be able to participate in any manner in the larger economy Here the goal is to work towards the universalisation of elementary education all across India, rural and urban, with a substantial difference being made by 2010. The goal focuses on retention in school and learning achieved. Money: Micro Financial ServicesThese services would include basic banking (savings and cash management), finance (debt and equity), insurance (life and health) and derivatives. The goal here is to facilitate universal access to these four services by the year 2010. In addition to its core areas of focus, the SIG, in a limited manner, supports some other initiatives: 1. Non-governmental Organization (NGO) Capacity Building This is supported through the GIVE (Giving Impetus to Voluntary Effort) Foundation. It seeks to provide a variety of services to NGOs listed including facilitating the receipt of donations online (Give Online), sale of NGO products (Shop Online), volunteering of time and skills (Volunteer Online) and news (News Online). 2. Modernization of the Indian Financial System
This involves encouraging appropriate research and institution building efforts on a national basis. It is a virtual non-profit research centre that acts as a platform to address and encourage debate, and develop a non-partisan opinion on various issues of concern and interest in financial economics relating to emerging markets. ICICI Bank has supported the development of various financial institutions such as the National Stock Exchange and the Bombay Stock Exchange. It has also supported the Institute for Financial Management and Research, Chennai. The changed economic climate in India, with a growing emphasis on the market, has hastened the need for an informed and participatory socio-economic order. As one of the largest players in the economic landscape of the country, ICICI Bank believes that its involvement in the commercial sector must be backed by a simultaneous commitment in the social sector. This is particularly so if any of the larger goals of economic liberalisation in India, and of its players, is to be brought to fruition. ICICI Bank seeks to perform its role in the social sector through a dedicated not-for-profit group, the Social Initiatives Group (SIG).
