Chapter 1 Introduction INDIAN BANKING SECTOR:Banking in India has its origin as early as the Vedic period. It is believed that the transaction from money lending to money banking must have occurred even before Manu, the great Hindu Jurist, who has devoted a section of his work to deposits and advances and laid down the rules relating to rate of interest. During Mogul Period, the indigenous bankers played a very important role in lending money and finance foreign trade and commerce. During the days of the east- India Company, it was the turn of the agency house to carry on the banking business the general bank of India was the first joint stock bank to be established in the year 1786. The others that followed were the Bank of Hindustan and the Bengal Bank. The Bank of Hindustan is reported to have continued till 1906 while the other two failed in the meantime. In the first half of the 19th century the east-India company established three banks, the Bank of Bengal in 1809, the Bank of Bombay in 1840 and the banks of Madras in 1843. These three banks are also known as the presidency banks were amalgamated in 1920 and a new Bank – the imperial bank of India established ion 27th January 1921. With the passing of the state bank act 1955 the under taking of the imperial Bank of India is taken over by the newly constituted the state bank of India

WHAT IS BANKING:the term bank derived from that Italian word “Banka” and the banking refers to the companies that provides banking products and services such as checking and saving , deposits , Loans, leases, Mortgages credit cards ATM network , securities brokerage investment banking, insurance , mutual funds and pensions( Kamath, 2005). Banking means accepting for the purpose of landing or investment of deposits of money from the public repayable on demand or otherwise one withdraw able by cheque, draft or otherwise Banks in India were started on the British Pattern in the beginning of the 19th century. in those days, all the. At the time of Second World War about 1500 joint stock banks were operating in undivided India, out of which over 1400 were non- scheduled banks. These banks were managed by bad and dishonest management and naturally there were number of bank failures. Hence the government has to step in and the banking companies act 1949 was enacted which led to gradual elimination of weak banks who were not in position of fulfill the various requirements of the Act. In order to strengthen the weak banks and receive public confidence in banking system , a new section 45 was inserted in the Banking Regulation Act in September 1960, Empowering the Government of India to compulsory amalgamate weak unit with stronger ones on the recommendations of RBI,

Financial institution





Financial institution of India consists of organized sector and un-organized sector

ORGANISED SECTOR: the sector whose parts and activities are systematically

coordinated by the monetary authority. It includes the RBI. COMMERCIAL BANKS, P.O. SAVING, NON- BANKING COMPANIES, AND COOPERATIVE BANKS. Is an apex of the Indian money market.

R.B.I: Reserve Bank of India, being the central Bank of the country though the R.B.I.
Does not enter into direct transaction in the money market, but it guides and controls the money market through the bank rate.

Commercial Banks: These are very most important segment of our money market. These
commercial banks play a very important role in mobilizing the money (savings) from various sectors to the economy.

SCHEDULED COMMERCIAL BANKS: it includes SBI and its 8 associates, 19 nationalized commercial banks and other scheduled banks, foreign banks and regional banks. Today we have 64,918 branches of scheduled banks these are those banks which are included in the second schedule to the Reserve Bank of India Act 1934. In term of Sec 42/5 of Reserve Bank of India Act a commercial bank should fulfill the following conditions Bank must have a paid up capital and reserve of an aggregate value of not less than Rs. 5 lakh. • It must satisfy RBI that all of its affairs are not conducted in a manner detrimental to the depositor. The scheduled banks enjoy certain privilege like approaching RBI for financial assistance; refinance etc and correspondingly, they have certain obligations alike maintaining certain cash reserves as prescribed by the RBI, submission of returns etc. NON SCHEDULED BANKS: these are those banks which are not included in the second schedule of the RBI Act on the account of failure of the bank with the minimum requirements for being scheduled •

P.O. SAVINGS Banks: this is the oldest in the official small saving schemes in India.

Though P.O. saving scheme have received a lot of attention from the attraction of savings, but these are not as much popular as the saving deposits accounts with the commercial banks.

REGIONAL RURAL BANK: in 1975 the Regional banks are established in the

supervision and recommendation by a working group headed by Mr. M Narasima when it was felt that the commercial and cooperative banks are not able to serve the small, marginal farmers, agricultural labor and artisans. Thus to serve this segment the Regional banks are established.

NON- BANKING FINANCIAL: IT includes LIC, the GIC and subsidiaries, the UTI.

COOPERATIVE BANKS: The word cooperative stands for willing to work together in

the production and marketing of goods, it is profitable to both producer and consumer to avoid middlemen. If, for instance, farmers can set up their own markets instead of sending

their produce to a wholesaler, they can sell at a price that includes only their costs and a fair profit: Additional wholesale and retail costs are avoided, and prices to the consumer are kept relatively low. In order to take part in this kind of direct production–marketing enterprise, people have formed cooperatives these are voluntary associations of either producers or consumers who band together for the group members' benefits. Cooperative organizations formed for financial benefits exist in most countries of the world. The cooperative way of doing business takes many forms, ranging from local to regional and federated organizations and from highly specialized to multipurpose societies. The cooperative banks have a three tier structure. At the top level there are state cooperative banks, At the district level there are central cooperative bank, At local level there are Rural primary cooperative banks and Urban primary cooperative banks Cooperative banking structure has unique position in the rural credit delivery system of India. The cooperative banking sector which is now a century old has a significant role in the field of credit to the rural through the short term and long term structure from many years the cooperative banks are the prime institutional agencies with a vast network, wide coverage and reach up to the remote areas. Keeping the view of cooperation the H.P. State Cooperative bank was established in Himachal Pradesh in august 1953 under the Cooperative Society Act, 1912. Onward from its establishment the bank is developing day by day and satisfying the needs of many people.

The commercial Banks were operating for the years, but it was being felt that these banks were not paying necessary head to the credit requirements of common masses. Further the commercial banks, were mainly concentrating their business in the urban area and the banking facilities to rural people were not available consequently, the Co-operative Banks came into picture after 1904. Himachal Pradesh has the distinction of having first Coop. Society Registered in India. Cooperative were primarily visualized as specialized agency for financing the credit requirement of rural people in the country particularly agriculture. Foundation of the Himachal Pradesh state cooperative bank was laid in 1953 by uniting the Mahasu central cooperative bank ltd. The Mandi central bank and the Chamba cooperative bank. Its registration is done in august 1953 under the cooperative societies act 1912. Later the bank starts functioning on 15th march 1954. Bank start functioning as APEX (at the top) Bank under 2- tier system in 6 – districts of Himachal. In 1955 two more Banks namely “Bank of Sirmour & Joint Stock Bank” merged into H.P. State Cooperative Bank. On 1st November 1966 many parts of Punjab ( previous districts Kangra, Kullu, Lahaul & Spiti, and some parts of districts Hoshiarpur, Gurdaspur, ambala) were merged into Himachal Pradesh. This results in transfer of Cooperative Banking System of these areas into Himachal Pradesh with 2 already functioning banks “The Kangra Central Cooperative Bank & The Jogindra Central Cooperative Bank”. In 1972 when Solan awarded with the status of separate district two separate branches of H.P. State Cooperative bank at Solan & Arki. While 1 Branch of Jogindra central Cooperative bank is working at Totu (Shimla). Till 29th September 1976 the assets and liabilities of all these 3 Banks were transferred to each other Now In Himachal Pradesh, the state cooperative bank ltd.

INFRENCE: in the financial year 2003-04 the
borrowings of the bank was about Rs. 23052.11

lacks, the investment of the bank is Rs. 108196.98 lack. In financial year 2004-05 the borrowings increases the bank by 3.17% and the investment of the bank was decreased by 4.03%. in the next financial year the borrowings stays at 5.06% more than the base year and the investment stays at 2.87% less than the base %age . In next year the borrowing increase slightly by 1.85% then last year and the investment further decreases by5.01% than base %age. In the financial year 2007-08 the borrowing decrease positively by 20.57%, the investment increase by 6.87% than previous year which is more than the base year by 1.86%. Thus the income of the bank on investment increases and the expenditure on borrowing decreases effectively. VI. Other liabilities and other assets of bank during 2003-04 to 2007-08

I.e. there is a growth in the bank other assets. it is clear the other liabilities of the bank increases at the higher rate than the increase in the other asset.


ANALYSIS :- the ratio analysis of the service sector is slightly different from the production sector . in term of service sector

the ratio analysis depends on certain different aspects. In case of Banking sector we calculate the sum of all liabilities and assets as below( the values are calculated on the bases of average of every month)

LIABILITIES Owned Funds Deposits Borrowing Other Liabilities Total

Amount ( In Lakhs) 38261 273547 22015 12782 346605

ASSETS Cash In hand Loans & Adv. Investments Other assets Total

Amount ( In Lakhs) 13176 108079 211072 14278 346605

Then we find the %age of relative share, interest paid, weighted cost by the following formulas for %of relative share = amount x 100/total , rate per 100 = int. paid / % of relative share x 100, For weighted cost = rate per 100 x %of relative share/100

Branch Adjustments Misc. income TOTAL 0 430.93 32505.72

After the completion of the P&L account the calculation of the financial margin is done as follows:-

Weighted Yield 8.83

Weighted Cost Financial Margin Misc. expenditure as % to W.C. Misc. Inc. as % to W.C. Other Income as %age to WC Cost Of Management Risk Cost as % to W.C NET MARGIN NET PROFIT

5.82 3.00 0.50 0.16 0.40 1.35 0.43

1.28 4429.18 lacks

Financial margin = weighted yield – weighted cost After the calculation of this we reduce different misc. expenditure, inc, etc as % to weighted cost mainly which are not included in the earlier calculation of weighted cost

On the basis of these calculations the different interpretation are calculated these interpretations are based on the 1. Capital adequacy ratio 2. Net worth to average working funds ratio 6.deposit composition ratio 7. Asset compositions ratio

3. Borrowings to average working fund ratio 4. Borrowing to net worth ratio 5. Various Composition of capital ratio

8. Asset quality ratio 9. Profitability ratio 10. Other ratios

INTERPRETATION OF RATIOS SN 1 2 RATIO Capital Adequacy Ratio-Capital to total risk weighted assets Net worth to Average Working Fund INTERPRETATION Higher the capital ratio, higher the capacity of banks to bear risks This ratio shows the share of Net worth to the total working fund. It indicates the strength of the institution. Higher this ratio, better for the institution This ratio indicates the dependency level of the institution on outside support for doing its business. The interpretation of this ratio depends on the sources of borrowings. If the institution's borrowings largely comprised of high cost borrowings, higher the ratio, higher will be the cost of funds This ratio indicates how many times of its Net worth the institution is borrowing. This has to be seen with restrictions, if any, imposed by statute/ bye-laws/ Board on the borrowing powers of the institution and commented upon. 12.47 AS ON 31.3.2008


Borrowing to Average Working Fund



Borrowing to Net worth



Composition of Capital a Govt. Share Capital to Total Share Capital Higher the ratio, higher is the control of the Govt. over the institution. But, it also indicates the State's participation and interest evinced by it in strengthening the institution. This ratio may also be seen in the light of adoption of Model Cooperative Societies Act by the State concerned. Higher ratio indicates the higher level of participation of individuals. 30.11

b Share Capital of Individuals to Total Share Capital 6 Composition of Deposits a Current and Savings Deposits to Total Deposits


The ratio indicates the proportion of low cost deposits in the total deposits. Higher the ratio, better it is for the institution. This would help in keeping down the Financial Cost (FC)


b Term / Fixed Deposit to Total deposits

This ratio indicates proportion of high cost deposits in the total deposits. Higher ratio indicates higher cost of funds. Institutions should maintain proper mix of low and high cost deposits. Higher ratio indicates the stability of the deposit base of the bank. It has also a bearing on the cost of fund mobilized by the bank. Higher ratio helps in reducing the liquidity risk substantially.


c Ratio of Time Deposits to Total Deposits d Ratio of Customer deposits to Total assets ( Customer deposits refer to deposits of individuals only) e Ratio of Volatile Liabilities to Total Assets (Volatile Liabilities refer to all liabilities which are likely to be withdrawn even if slightly higher rate is paid by other market players. Ex: Institutional deposits, govt. deposits etc.) 7 Asset Composition a Non-earning Assets to Total Assets (Nonearning assets to cash, current account balances, interest receivable, other fixed asset etc.) b Cash and current account balances to Total Demand Liabilities (TDL) c Prime Asset Ratio I.e. Prime assets to Total assets Prime Assets are Cash, Inter-Bank Placements (due within 30 days) and liquid securities d Total investments to TDL


Lower the ratio, better the liquidity


This ratio indicates proportion of non-earning assets to total assets. Higher the ratio, lower will be earning ability of the banks. Normally, banks should attempt to maintain non-earning assets at the minimum. Lower the ratio, better it for the bank. This indicates the cash management position of the bank Higher the ratio, better the liquidity


Higher the ratio, higher is the tendency of the bank for going for risk free earning. However, this ratio will have to be interpreted keeping in view the funds position of the bank, lending

opportunities etc.

e Non-SLR investments to The position is to be examined with reference to Total Investment availability of Non-SLR surplus funds and RBI/ NABARD guidelines in this regard. f Investment in share and debentures to Total Investments. g ST loans outstanding to Total loans outstanding This ratio has to be interpreted keeping in view the instructions issued by RBI /NABRD from time to time. These ratios indicate what proportion of loans and advances are of short-term and long term in nature. These ratios have to be compared with the ratios of ST and LT liabilities to total liabilities to understand whether there is any unduly large asset liability mismatch which may lead to liquidity crunch.



h L.T. loans outstanding to total loans outstanding I High yielding advances The ratio indicates the extent of high value to total advances advances in the total loan portfolio. Higher the outstanding ratio, better will be the earning ability of the bank. However, while interpreting this ratio, IO will have to study the extent of impaired assets in this category, appraisal capability of the bank, supervisory mechanism etc. j Ratio of Net loans to Primary deposits primary deposits refer to deposits other than Certificate of Deposits, Interbank Deposits etc. 8 Asset Quality a Standard assets to Total loan assets B Impaired assets to Total loans Higher the ratio, better is the quality of advances portfolio of the bank. Besides more standard assets means more earning capacity of the bank This ratio indicates the extent of poor quality loans. If it is more than 5% of the loan, portfolio, the IO is required to critically examine the impaired assets and their composition and suggest measures for improving the recovery position.






Profitability Ratios a Interest Income to Gross Income b Income from Commission, brokerage and exchange and other sources to Gross Income c Interest paid including interest due but not paid on deposits and borrowings to interest income The ratio indicates the proportion of interest income to the gross income. The ratio indicates the proportion of income from non-fund based business. Higher the ratio, better the profitability of the bank. Normally, this ratio will be around 10% This ratio indicates the proportion of interest income utilized for meeting the interest cost. It also indicates the spread available to the bank to meet the COM and other cost. Very high ratio would indicate serious problem in the bank as to asset liability miss-matches. The ratio indicates what part of the Gross Income goes to meet cost of management. This ratio will have to be compared with State average and peer group averages. The ratio indicates the proportion of interest cost in the total cost. A high level of interest cost indicates a poor level of internal resources position and heavy dependence on outside sources. This ratio indicates the proportion of staff cost in the total expenditure of the bank This ratio indicates at what cost the incremental business of the bank is built up. What is required to be examines is whether the bank is incurring higher incremental expenditure for generating Rs. 100 of additional business. This ratio indicates what portion of the gross income is available. This will have to be examined in relation to statutory restrictions. If any and as per NABARD's guidelines. 13.63 94.12 5.88


d Cost of Management (CoM) to Gross Income


e Interest on deposits and borrowings to Total expenditure


f Staff cost to Total expenditure g Incremental CoM to incremental business


h Net profit to Gross Income

i Dividend pay out ratio Dividend paid to Net profit

This ratio indicates the % of dividend declared by the bank. This will have to be examined in relation to statutory restrictions. If any and as per NABARD's guidelines.

j Net profit to owned fund k Net profit to average working funds

This ratio indicates return on owned funds The ratio indicates margin of profitability available to the bank

10.25 1.28

l Interest Cost (on deposits and borrowings ) to average Working Funds

This ratio gives the average cost of funds


m Interest Cost (on loans and advances plus investments ) to average Working Funds n Total provisions made towards impaired assets to Total provision required to be made

This ratio gives the average yield on WF


This ratio indicates the extent of provisions made by the bank. The bank is required to make full provision as per the prudential norms

o Total provisions required to be made to loans and advances outstanding

This ratio indicates degree of risk of loaning operations in the bank. This ratio should be compared with State, district as well as peer group averages and commented upon.

P Erosion in Assets to Total Assets 10 Other Ratios

This ratio indicates the quality of assets. A higher ratio reflects the poor quality of assets held by the bank.

(I) Net Worth to Total Outside Liabilities

Higher the ratio, better is the intrinsic strength of the bank. This also indicates risk bearing capability of the bank. The ratio indicates the level of staff productivity in the bank. This ratio will have to be compared with State, district and peer group level averages. This can also be compared with per staff breakeven level of business. 357.09

(ii) Business per staff

(iii Per Branch business )

This ratio indicates the level of branch productivity. As in the case of staff productivity, this ratio will have to be compared with that of State, District and peer groups.


As when we are in the banking sector or any financial sector there is a need to maintain the record of every monetary or nonmonetary transaction .when we talk about the banks it mainly deals with the cash flow the key operational processes of the bank starts after the time when the customer enters the bank 1st time and it is assumed in the financial institution if a person is your client then it is for life time. In case of the bank the following are the key processes which are the main part of working of the bank 1. Checking of Opening balance 2. Opening of new account 3. 4. Deposition/ Withdrawing of cash (by consumer) Sanctioning of loans

5. Internal process and transactions 6. Other processes 7. 8. Reports preparation Closing balance

Checking of Opening balance: when the day starts the cash in the locker of the bank is Opening of new account

tallied with the balance book of the bank. In the computerization system it is done with the help of check sum option in generated by the system last evening. in the computerized system the account opening system is very easy task. the person who wants to open his account has to fill a application form (attached in annexure) and has to submit a passport size photograph , residence proof , a garreteer, when he fulfill all the requirements his account is opened according to his wish .

The following types of account can be opened in this bank 1. Current t account 4. MlLD 2. Saving account 5. HPD 3. Fixed deposits 6. RD.

Then the operator or clerk after verifying everything opens his accounts by feeding his details into the system. he select the option OPERATIONS under operation select ACCOUNT then ACCOUNT OPEN. New account opening screen will appear . then all the details are filled which are asked by the system . when we save these details then account no. and customer ID is generated by the system itself. These information’s are written down by the operator on the AOF .the account will be confirmed after competent official authorizes the same .after the confirmation of account voucher posting is allowed .

Deposition/ Withdrawing of cash (by consumer): after the opening of account the
deposition and withdrawing is done. The following types of action is done while operating the account 1. Deposition (deposit of cash) 2. Withdrawing (withdrawing of cash ) 3. Transfer (transfer of money from one account to other). All these transactions are done with the vouchers which have to be posted into the system. And is done by selection the option VOUCHER TRANSACTION – VOUCHER. Voucher

posting screen will appear all the vouchers other than the outward clearing voucher can be posted through option While posting the voucher select Cr. for CREDITING, Dr. for DEBITING. and in transaction type select transaction type cash for CASH RELATED TRANSACTION , clg. For CLEARING , tfr for TRANSFER . Account no. in related column After the completion of voucher details, save the transaction. In case of any irregularity the system will display appropriate ‘MESSAGE’ on the screen . At the end of the transaction the system generate the Trn. Now this no. is written down on the front of the voucher in case of transfer after filling the entries in Dr. or Cr. Side of the tfr voucher press the forward arrow (>>) fill the opposite details and then save the some message may appear for the user to take note of the same . Transaction no. for each voucher and batch No. would appear for the user to note down the same. The transaction no. for voucher and batch No. is generated by system


Sanctioning of loans: in recent years many banks are providing loans to the customers according to their requirement at different interest rate. Every bank is providing loans according to their preference. The loans provided by state cooperative bank are
1. Personal loan 4. Education loans 7. Self helped group scheme 2. Home loan 5. Non agriculture loan 3. Vehicle loans 6. Minor irrigation

8. Self employed group scheme etc…

The person who wants to get a loan he has to fill the form for required type of loans along with the application form he has to submit the various documents insuring his ability of paying back the loans. Like voter id, copy of rashan card. Income statement, land etc. when the applicant is able to produce the all the required documents then it is on the bank authorities to evaluate that whether the applicant is eligible for getting the loan all the record related to the applicant is maintained in the loan file of applicant. While passing the loan it is

taken care that the after paying the installment and interest the person is able to get 35% amount of money to his home. If the applicant is able to fulfill these criteria then the bank passes his application and his loan s sanctioned after the sanctioning of loan the amount is transferred to the saving account of the applicant and a separate loan account is generated for the applicant and the interest is credited into his account. This loan account no. is then given to the file of the applicant and is maintained on the records. When sanctioned amount is transferred into saving account it is printed as “tfr from loan account”. This generally happen in case of personal loans, house loans etc where the person has to spend money himself. But in case of education loans or vehicle loans the payment is made to the third party as is required to the third party.

INTERNAL PROCESSES AND TRANSACTION: - internal processes involves

Chapter 5 Swot analysis
The overall evaluation of a business’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats is called SWOT analysis. SWOT analysis consists of an analysis of the external and internal environments.

External Environment Analysis

In general, a business unit has to monitor key macroenvironment forces (demographic economic, technological, political-legal, and social-cultural) and microenvironment factors

(customers, competitors, distributors, and suppliers) that affect its ability to earn profits Then, for each trend or development, management needs to identify the associated marketing opportunities and threats. A marketing opportunity is an area of buyer need in which a company can perform profitably. Opportunities can be classified according to their attractiveness and their success probability. The company’s success probability depends on whether its business strengths not only match the key success requirements for operating in the target market, but also exceed those of its competitors. Mere competence does not constitute a competitive advantage. The best-performing company will be the one that can generate the greatest customer value and sustain it over time. An environmental threat is a challenge posed by an unfavorable external trend or development that would lead, in the absence of defensive marketing action, to deterioration in sales or profit. Threats should be classified according to seriousness and probability of occurrence. Minor threats can be ignored; somewhat more serious threats must be carefully monitored; and major threats require the development of contingency plans that spell out changes the company can make if necessary.

Internal Environment Analysis

It is one thing to discern attractive opportunities and another to have the competencies to succeed in these opportunities. Thus, each business needs to periodically evaluate its internal strengths and weaknesses in marketing, financial, manufacturing, and organizational competencies. Clearly, the business does not have to correct all of its weaknesses, nor should it gloat about all of its strengths. The big question is whether the business should limit itself to those opportunities in which it possesses the required strengths or consider better opportunities to acquire or develop certain strengths. Sometimes a business does poorly because its departments do not work together well as a team. It is therefore critically important to assess interdepartmental working relationships as part of the internal environmental audit. STRENGTH: -The strengths of the H.P. State Cooperative Bank depending on its external and internal environment are 1. The bank is spread into only 6 districts due to its limited area it is easy to monitor minor requirements of the customers which may else ignored by other banks. 2. The bank provides the easiest way to open a new account into any of its branch as the customers has to fill minimum requirements which are asked by other banks. 3. The bank has the branches in the remote areas where the branches of other banks are not yet opened which give the bank edge over the other banks.

4. As the bank is a cooperative bank thus bank gets the advantage of getting priority by the different cooperative societies for transactions and loans. 5. Due to the cooperative in nature peoples has faith in the bank. 6. Cooperative staff is the main strength of all the organization as in case of the bank its cooperative staff is the main strength of the bank. 7. Adherence to coop values and principles.

8. The H.P. State Cooperative Bank has well knit organizational structure. 9. The H.P. State Cooperative Bank has deep roots in the community. 10. The H.P. State Cooperative Bank deals the user as not only the customers but also the member of the bank. 11. It has great amount cooperation with other district cooperative banks( Kangra central cooperative bank, Jogindra central cooperative bank ). 12. The H.P.
