Banking sector profile
Banking in India originated in the first decade of 18th century. The first banks were The General Bank of India, which started in 1786, and Bank of Hindustan, both of which are now defunct. The oldest bank in existence in India is the State Bank of India, which originated in the "The Bank of Bengal" in Calcutta in June 1806. This was one of the three presidency banks, the other two being the Bank of Bombay and the Bank of Madras. The presidency banks were established under charters from the British East India Company. They merged in 1925 to form the Imperial Bank of India, which, upon India's independence, became the State Bank of India. For many years the Presidency banks acted as quasi-central banks, as did their successors. The Reserve Bank of India formally took on the responsibility of regulating the Indian banking sector from 1935. After India's independence in 1947, the Reserve Bank was nationalized and given broader powers. A couple of decades later, foreign banks such as Credit Lyonnais started their Calcutta operations in the 1850s. At that point of time, Calcutta was the most active trading port, mainly due to the trade of the British Empire, and due to which banking activity took roots there and prospered.

The first fully Indian owned bank was the Allahabad Bank, established in 1865. However, at the end of late-18th century, there were hardly any banks in India in the modern sense of the term. At the time of the American Civil War, a void was created as the supply of cotton to Lancashire stopped from the Americas. Some banks were opened at that time to finance industry, including speculative trading in cotton. With large exposure to speculative ventures, most of the banks opened in India during that period failed. The depositors lost money and lost interest in keeping deposits with banks. Subsequently,

banking in India remained the exclusive domain of Europeans for next several decades until the beginning of the 20th century.

Structure of the organized banking sector in India. Numbers of banks are in brackets.

At this time, the Indian economy was passing through a relative period of stability. Around five decades have elapsed since the India's First war of Independence, and the social, industrial and other infrastructure have developed. At that time there were very small banks operated by Indians, and most of them were owned and operated by particular communities. The presidency banks dominated banking in India. There were also some exchange banks and a number of Indian joint stock banks. All these banks operated in different segments of the economy. The exchange banks, mostly owned by Europeans, concentrated on financing foreign trade. Indian joint stock banks were generally under capitalized and lacked the experience and maturity to compete with the presidency and exchange banks. This segmentation let Lord Curzon to observe, "In respect of banking it seems we are behind the times. We are like some old fashioned sailing ship, divided by solid wooden bulkheads into separate and cumbersome compartments." By the 1900s, the market expanded with the establishment of banks such as Punjab National Bank, in 1895 in Lahore and Bank of India, in 1906, in Mumbai - both of which were founded under private ownership. Punjab National Bank is the first Swadeshi Bank founded by the leaders like Lala Lajpat Rai, Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia. The Swadeshi movement in particular inspired local businessmen and political figures to found banks of and for the Indian community. A number of banks established then have survived to the present such as Bank of India, Corporation Bank, Indian Bank, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank and Central Bank of India.

The period during the First World War (1914-1918) through the end of the Second World War (1939-1945), and two years thereafter until the independence of India were challenging for Indian banking. The years of the First World War were turbulent, and it took its toll with banks simply collapsing despite the Indian economy gaining indirect

boost due to war-related economic activities. At least 94 banks in India failed between 1913 and 1918 as indicated in the following table:


Number of banks that failed 12 42 11 13 9 7 274 710 56 231 76 209

Paid-up Capital (Rs. Lakhs)

The partition of India in 1947 adversely impacted the economies of Punjab and West Bengal, paralyzing banking activities for months. India's independence marked the end of a regime of the Laissez-faire for the Indian banking. The Government of India initiated measures to play an active role in the economic life of the nation, and the Industrial Policy Resolution adopted by the government in 1948 envisaged a mixed economy. This resulted into greater involvement of the state in different segments of the economy including banking and finance. The major steps to regulate banking included:

In 1948, the Reserve Bank of India, India's central banking authority, was nationalized, and it became an institution owned by the Government of India. In 1949, the Banking Regulation Act was enacted which empowered the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) "to regulate, control, and inspect the banks in India." The Banking Regulation Act also provided that no new bank or branch of an existing bank may be opened without a license from the RBI, and no two banks could have common directors.

However, despite these provisions, control and regulations, banks in India except the State Bank of India, continued to be owned and operated by private persons. This changed with the nationalization of major banks in India on 19th July, 1969.

By the 1960s, the Indian banking industry has become an important tool to facilitate the development of the Indian economy. At the same time, it has emerged as a large employer, and a debate has ensued about the possibility to nationalize the banking industry. Indira Gandhi, the-then Prime Minister of India expressed the intention of the GOI in the annual conference of the All India Congress Meeting in a paper entitled "Stray thoughts on Bank Nationalisation." The paper was received with positive enthusiasm. Thereafter, her move was swift and sudden, and the GOI issued an ordinance and nationalised the 14 largest commercial banks with effect from the midnight of July 19, 1969. Jayaprakash Narayan, a national leader of India, described the step as a "masterstroke of political sagacity." Within two weeks of the issue of the ordinance, the Parliament passed the Banking Companies (Acquition and Transfer of Undertaking) Bill, and it received the presidential approval on 9th August, 1969. A second dose of nationalisation of 6 more commercial banks followed in 1980. The stated reason for the nationalisation was to give the government more control of credit delivery. With the second dose of nationalisation, the GOI controlled around 91% of the banking

business of India. Later on, in the year 1993, one of the nationalised banks, namely, New Bank of India was merged with Punjab National Bank. It was the first and only merger of a Nationalised Bank into a Nationalised Bank, resulting in the reducing the number of Nationalised Banks from 20 to 19. After this, until the 1990s, the nationalised banks grew at a pace of around 4%, closer to the average growth rate of the Indian economy.

In the early 1990s the then Narsimha Rao government embarked on a policy of liberalisation and gave licences to a small number of private banks, which came to be known as New Generation tech-savvy banks, which included banks such as Global Trust Bank (the first of such new generation banks to be set up)which later amalgamated with Oriental Bank of Commerce,UTI Bank(now re-named as Axis Bank), ICICI Bank and HDFC Bank. This move, along with the rapid growth in the economy of India, kickstarted the banking sector in India, which has seen rapid growth with strong contribution from all the three sectors of banks, namely, government banks, private banks and foreign banks. The next stage for the Indian banking has been setup with the proposed relaxation in the norms for Foreign Direct Investment, where all Foreign Investors in banks may be given voting rights which could exceed the present cap of 10%,at present it has gone up to 49% with some restrictions. The new policy shook the Banking sector in India completely. Bankers, till this time, were used to the 4-6-4 method (Borrow at 4%;Lend at 6%;Go home at 4) of functioning. The new wave ushered in a modern outlook and tech-savvy methods of working for traditional banks.All this led to the retail boom in India. People not just demanded more from their banks but also received more.


Currently (2007), banking in India is generally fairly mature in terms of supply, product range and reach-even though reach in rural India still remains a challenge for the private sector and foreign banks. In terms of quality of assets and capital adequacy, Indian banks are considered to have clean, strong and transparent balance sheets relative to other banks in comparable economies in its region. The Reserve Bank of India is an autonomous body, with minimal pressure from the government. The stated policy of the Bank on the Indian Rupee is to manage volatility but without any fixed exchange rate-and this has mostly been true. With the growth in the Indian economy expected to be strong for quite some timeespecially in its services sector-the demand for banking services, especially retail banking, mortgages and investment services are expected to be strong. One may also expect M&As, takeovers, and asset sales. In March 2006, the Reserve Bank of India allowed Warburg Pincus to increase its stake in Kotak Mahindra Bank (a private sector bank) to 10%. This is the first time an investor has been allowed to hold more than 5% in a private sector bank since the RBI announced norms in 2005 that any stake exceeding 5% in the private sector banks would need to be vetted by them. Currently, India has 88 scheduled commercial banks (SCBs) - 27 public sector banks (that is with the Government of India holding a stake)after merger of New Bank of India in Punjab National Bank in 1993, 29 private banks (these do not have government stake; they may be publicly listed and traded on stock exchanges) and 31 foreign banks. They have a combined network of over 53,000 branches and 17,000 ATMs. According to a report by ICRA Limited, a rating agency, the public sector banks hold over 75 percent of total assets of the banking industry, with the private and foreign banks holding 18.2% and 6.5% respectively Introduction of many more products and facilities in the banking sector in its reforms measure. In 1991, under the chairmanship of M Narasimham, a committee was set up by his name which worked for the liberalization of banking practices. The country is flooded with foreign banks and their ATM stations. Efforts are being put to give a satisfactory service to customers. Phone banking and net banking is introduced. The entire system became more convenient and swift. Time is given more importance than money.

Bank basically means business and in business collection of raw data allows the managers to see the real scenario and then take a decision as per the data obtained. There are several implications in this statement: • The bank gets a clear picture of the ULIP Market scenario. • They can examine the available information in the form of data to make a decision • They can even get a clear picture of the scenario or potential of the Savings Account and ULIP’s of their banks in comparison to other banks. • The information can only be gathered by data collection and then analyzing the available data. Therefore, it can be said that the data collection is an important part of the project.

Data Raw numbers


The projected objectives were considered and as per the requirement a market survey was done. Procedure: The procedure that followed can be enlisted as below: • Reading about the product • Deciding on the objective to proceed. • Developing Survey instruments • Conducting personal interviews of different age-groups, sex, monthly income and occupation through a Questionnaire. • Finally analyzing the data of various Geographic areas and trying to study with the other players.

Process adopted:

1. Gaining knowledge about the product: Reading about the product was the first step undertaken. This gave not only in depth knowledge about what is been offered by other players but also proved useful while developing the questionnaire. Steps in the Development of the Survey Instruments The main instruments required for survey was a well-developed questionnaire. The questionnaire development took place in a series of steps as described below:

Step 1

Research objectives are being information objectives.

Step 5

Step 6





transformed into information objectives.

Step 7

The number of information needed is being determined.

Step 8 Step 9 Step 10

The questionnaire and layout is being evaluated.

Revise the questionnaire layout if needed.

The Questionnaire format is being finalized.

2. Customer Survey: The people play an important part as a clear perception of people about the product can be estimated and known. Studying the need levels of the people regarding the Insurance product can be observed. It was very useful in knowing about the requirements of the people.

3. Referred to brochures and websites of competitors: To understand the competitors product brochures and websites of various players were referred and a competitive analogy of all the information is been made.

Research Design: A two stage Research was conducted:

1. Secondary Research: Data was collected from websites and catalogues to understand the product of the different players

2. Primary Research: A Primary Research was conducted: The questionnaire was prepared for the companies and following areas covered: • competing banks • Features offered by different banks • Consumer profile • Satisfaction level • Reasons for their invesment • Desirable features of the product.

Sampling Plan: Elements: The target population of the study included the general population above the age of 21 yrs. It will further be based on Stratified Random Sampling.

Sample size: 100 people.

The final draft of the questionnaire (see Appendix) was prepared on the basis of the observations from the pilot study. These were then finally filled by 1000 customer, for the conclusive study. Finally the data collected was fed into the data analysis software- SPSS, to be analyzed using statistical techniques. Types of Primary Data collected: • Socioeconomic Characteristics: socioeconomic characteristics are sometimes called “states of being” in that they represent the type of people. The factors on which we are working are occupation. Monthly transection is also an important parameter but it is difficult to verify. Although the amount of money that business unit earns in a month is an absolute, not a relative quantity but it is a sensitive topic in our society and it is difficult to determine. • Attitudes/Opinions: Through the questionnaire we have tried to get hold of business preference, inclination and requirement. Attitude is an important notion in the marketing literature, since it is generally thought that the attitudes are related to the behavior of businessmen.

• Motivation:

Through the questionnaire we have tried to find the hidden need or want of businessmen and have tried to find if these people can be tapped as the potential customer for HDFC Bank. • Behavior: Behavior concerns what subjects have done or are doing. Through the questionnaire we have tried to find out the behavior of the individuals regarding the product and their responses. If the responses are favorable then the person can be said to be our potential customer. The primary data serves as an important tool to measure the behavioral trend of the customer. It helps in answering some of the vital Questions. Obtaining the Primary Data: The data collection was primarily done through communication. Communication involves questioning respondents to secure the desired information, using a data collection instrument called questionnaire. The questions were in writing and so were the responses. Versatility:

It is the ability of a technique to collect the information on the many types of primary data of interest to marketers. It has also been found that some of the people do not answer truthfully to all the questions especially in the case of the personal details

Almost all the Banks offer similar features and facilities with their Savings accounts, therefore for existing customers of Current Account of any Bank to shift to another Bank; this is very rarely the criteria or reason. The level of service in terms of delivering whatever is promised, fast response in case of problems, is the most important benefit that the customers seek, from the Bank they have a Current Account with. Network reach and visibility of a Bank is a very important criterion for the customer while opening a Current Account. We can also conclude from our analysis that network reach in terms of Branches and ATMs is directly proportional Private Players. to the market share in case of




In case of a new customer, if a bank approaches it first for opening a Current Account with them, then there is a good chance for the bank of getting many future businesses and cross sales from the deal.

5. Aggressive Marketing is the key to increasing the market share in this area, since the market has a lot of potential both in terms of untapped market .


Contract Sales Executive (CSE) should be trained to explain the product features and its value added services to make customer’s product selection convenient.

2. Contract Sales Executive (CSE) should recommend right product to the right customer so as to ensure a high degree of satisfaction among the customer. 3. The bank needs to make people aware about there products and the basic benefits they can derive out of it. And also the differential features of its savings account as compared to other banks.70% of the people did not even know about the concept, benefits and features of its saving accounts. The bank should also target small business unit for whom maintenance of the AQB is not a problem as this segment is not much penetrated. Though the bank offers free doorstep banking once a day this fact is also not known to many customers or they still do not trust this



service what ever the reason the bank can popularize this service to gain an edge over nationalized banks and Co-operative Banks. 6. Quality of service has been rated highly important by all demofigureic factors as a reason for banking with a particular bank, Standard Chartered needs to improve the services provided to its existing customers before attracting more in the future and use word of mouth as a promotional tool to increase the sales potential of its savings account.


Some of the limitations of the project are listed as below: The time bound period is the major limitation in research projects.


2. Due to the financial and time constraints a cluster analysis of the population so as to get better results was not feasible. 3. The research conduct in jaipur city only. 4. It was difficult to break the ice with the common people initially. It was a daunting task to convince them to fill in the personal details of the questionnaire where they have to mention the monthly income, occupation etc. 5. To convince the people for a proper interviewing process is also difficult. 6. Compilation of data on competitor analysis was difficult due to nonavailability of correct information. 7. The figures have been taken as approximations.
