The project was done in various phases: • The first phase comprises gathering information related to the product and population,

In the second phase a survey is to be conducted on corporate customers of Gurdaspur region through direct questionnaire.

• The findings and representation of the research is done in the third phase

• And in the last phase all the findings and analysis along with conclusions and recommendation has been submitted in report format for further use. It was also necessary to do a competitor analysis as well to know the strength and weakness of the various competitors as the segment has a lot of players and more global players will join the competition soon. Various marketing tools have been used to analyze the current situation of Punjab& Sind Bank’s salary account segment and find out its position among the competitors in order to form a strategy for the Punjab & Sind Bank in salary account segment.

Changes in Banking Sector
The face of banking is changing rapidly. Competition is going to be tough and with financial liberalisation under the WTO, banks in India will have to benchmark themselves against the best in the world. For a strong and resilient banking and financial system, therefore, banks need to go beyond peripheral issues and tackle significant issues like improvements in profitability, efficiency and technology, while achieving economies of scale through consolidation and exploring available cost-effective solutions. These are some of the issues that need to be addressed if banks are to succeed, not just survive, in the changing milieu.

Challenges Ahead
(i) Improving profitability: The most direct result of the above
changes is increasing competition and narrowing of spreads and its impact on the profitability of banks. The challenge for banks is how to manage with thinning margins while at the same time working to improve productivity which remains low in relation to global standards. This is particularly important because with dilution in banks’ equity, analysts and shareholders now closely track their performance. This will require tremendous efforts in the area of technology and for banks to build capabilities to handle much bigger volumes.

(ii) Reinforcing technology: Technology has thus become a
strategic and integral part of banking, driving banks to acquire and

implement world class systems that enable them to provide products and services in large volumes at a competitive cost with better risk management practices. The pressure to undertake extensive computerizations is very real as banks that adopt the latest in technology have an edge over others. Customers have become very demanding and banks have to deliver customized products through multiple channels, allowing customers access to the bank round the clock.

(iii) Risk management: The deregulated environment brings in its
wake risks along with profitable opportunities, and technology plays a crucial role in managing these risks. In addition to being exposed to credit risk, market risk and operational risk, the business of banks would be susceptible to country risk, which will be heightened as controls on the movement of capital is eased. In this context, banks are upgrading their credit assessment and risk management skills and retraining staff, developing a cadre of specialists and introducing technology driven management information systems.

(iv) Sharpening skills:

The far-reaching changes in the banking

and financial sector entail a fundamental shift in the set of skills required in banking. To meet increased competition and manage risks, the demand for specialized banking functions, using IT as a competitive tool is set to go up. Special skills in retail banking, treasury, risk management, foreign exchange, development banking, etc., will need to be carefully nurtured and built.

Thus, the twin pillars of the banking sector i.e. human resources and IT will have to be strengthened.

(v) Greater customer orientation:

In today’s competitive

environment, banks will have to strive to attract and retain customers by introducing innovative products, enhancing the quality of customer service and marketing a variety of products through diverse channels targeted at specific customer groups.

(vi) Corporate governance:

Besides using their strengths and

strategic initiatives for creating shareholder value, banks have to be conscious of their responsibilities towards corporate governance. Following financial liberalisation, as the ownership of banks gets broadbased, the importance of institutional and individual shareholders will increase. In such a scenario, banks will need to put in place a code for corporate governance for benefiting all stakeholders of a corporate entity.

(vii) International standards:

Introducing internationally

followed best practices and observing universally acceptable standards and codes is necessary for strengthening the domestic financial architecture. This includes best practices in the area of corporate governance along with full transparency in disclosures. In today’s globalised world,focusing on the observance of standards will help smooth integration with world financial markets.

Technology in Banking Sector

Technology is having a major impact on the banking industry. For example, many routine bank services that once required a teller, such as making a withdrawal or deposit, are now available through ATMs that allow people to access their accounts 24 hours a day. Also, direct deposit allows companies and governments to electronically transfer payments into various accounts. Further, debit cards, which may also used as ATM cards, instantaneously deduct money from an account when the card is swiped across a machine at a store’s cash register. Electronic banking by phone or Computer allows customers to pay bills and transfer money from one account to another. Through these channels, bank customers can also access information such as account balances and statement history. Some banks have begun offering online account aggregation, which makes available in one place detailed and up-to date information on a customer’s accounts held at various institutions. Advancements in technology have also led to improvements in the ways in which banks process information. Use of check imaging, which allows banks to store photographed checks on the computer , is one such example that has been implemented by some banks. Other types of technology have greatly impacted the lending side of banking. For example, the availability and growing use of credit scoring software allows loans to be approved in minutes, rather than days, making lending departments more efficient. Other fundamental changes are occurring in the industry as banks diversify their services to become more competitive. Many banks now offer their customers financial planning and asset management services, as well as brokerage and insurance services, often through a subsidiary or third party. Others are beginning to provide investment banking services that help companies and governments raise money through the issuance of stocks and bonds, also usually through a subsidiary. As banks respond to deregulation

and as competition in this sector grows, the nature of the banking industry will continue to undergo significant change.

GOLD CARD SCHEME FOR EXPORTERS

Exports play a crucial role in a developing economy like India which attaches considerable importance to export promotion.

Investment Rationale
Wide Distribution Network and diversification of products & services PSB has a pan India presence through 926 branches and 63 ATMs as on October 31, 2010. It has a large presence in northern India with 623 branches, which is believed to be rich in resources and offer great opportunity for resource mobilization. Out of these 920 branches it has 49 specialised branches including specialised agriculture branches, personal banking branches and MSME branches. PSB plans to expand its branch network which would result in increasing the customer base, CASA ratio and business. It intends to focus on the technology including the rollout of the core banking system and the launch of customer-centric and multichannel solutions like internet banking, telephone banking and mobile banking, to support its network of branches. Thus, PSB within the periphery of banking business is venturing and offering newer products and services which would augment growth and aid in client acquisition. • Strong asset quality & financial growth PSB has been able to increase its business operations significantly, while improving its asset quality. In fiscal 2005, PSB had net NPA ratio of 8.11% (highest amongst the public sector banks) has been reduced to 0.36% in FY10 (group average of the public

sector banks at 0.91%). Also the bank is likely to maintain NPA ratios around this level.

During the last five fiscals, it has been able to achieve a CAGR of 36.24% in its net advances in spite of a reduction in net NPA ratio. Also, it has registered strong RoA for fiscal 2010 at 1.06% and NIMs for fiscal 2010 was at 2.67%. • Comfortable capital adequacy ratio , The bank’s capital adequacy ratio (CAR) as on September 2010 stood at 13.04% with the tierI capital at 7.98% and the tier-II capital at 5.06%. The bank plans to meet its future capital adequacy requirement through this issue.

The primary purpose of capital restructuring was to enable the bank to raise fresh equity capital from the market. • Accelerate growth in loans and advances to the retail and corporate sectors Advances growth has been robust over the years & in FY10 PSB recorded 32.6% to INR 326.39 Bn growth YoY.

This Corporate Governance Policy, therefore, is established to provide a direction and framework for managing and monitoring the bank in accordance with the principles of good corporate governance.

WORK PROCESS IN PUNJAB & SIND BANK
In Punjab & Sind Bank, work process for corporate salary accounts is divided in 4 stages. • MAPPING • PROFILING • DOCUMENTATION • CLOSING

In the first stage of this process which is MAPPING, we have to do MAPPING and in this we have to collect data of our prospect customers. It was like cold calling. We went to various area of the city to find our target company. In this process we have to collect following information about the company or prospect customer. • Name of the company. • Complete address of the company. • Name of the concerned person who looks after payroll of the company.

His designation.

• His contact number or visiting card. • Existing bank with which they are banking. • Total number of employees on the payroll of the company.

After this we have to report to the corporate sales manager to show him data and after that we have to make a call to the concerned person to take an appointment. And once appointment is fixed, we have to go with senior sales officer or with corporate sales manager on the call. Second step in this was profiling. In this we have to get some of information from the corporate at the time of meeting. And according to

that we can offer him the best deal because before each and every offer, criteria has been made by the bank and in which criteria that company is coming we have to decide and according to that we use to offer them best deal. In this we used to ask questions which are as follows… • Number of employees on the payroll of the company. • Last month net salary disbursement of the company (to decide criteria in which they are coming) • Nature of business. • Name and numType of the company, where it is public limited, private limited, solo ownership etc • Name of the concerned person, who looks after payroll of the company. • Number of branches. Third process starts when deal has been closed or finalized. Than we could start documentation process as per the banking requirements. Which included following documents of the company… • Memorandum of association. • Partnership deed. • Directors photo ID proof. (PAN card/ passport/ driving license/ voter ID)

• Employees detail. • Current account detail. • And in the fourth stage which is closing, we have to start opening salary accounts of each and every employees to disburse salary in their accounts. For that matter sales officers use to go to the employees of the company and get form fill and collect required documentsof the directors.

BUISNESS CYCLE
A strategy can be described as a collection of activities that will enable the organization to reach its objective. A cost reduction strategy may involve staff redundancies and the development of more efficient supply chains as well. Marketing strategy is a cyclical process consisting of four main phases.

Research

Measurem ent
.

Planning

Implementatio n

Research
Successful business relies on informed decision making. Managers with access to information on the market, competitors and their own business will

be better placed to set goals and devise strategies, than those who are less well informed.

Planning
After analyzing the business intelligence to identify the most important internal and external factors affecting the organization, managers can begin to formulate appropriate strategies for meeting their goals. Throughout the planning process, managers should constantly consult with other heads of department and with employees further down the line who will be responsible for implementing the strategy activities.

Implementation
Strategy implementation involves the delivery of a number of inter-related activities to an agreed standard and schedule. This is often referred to as project management. Implementation is the most important of all the processes as it ensures that the planning is not just in papers and has been used to obtain results.

Measurement
Once implementation of the strategy is complete, it is important to assess the degree to which it enabled the objective to be achieved. Without proper measurement it will be difficult to accurately understand what worked and

what improvements might be needed for future strategies. After measurement, if it is found that the planning has not been effective to achieve the desired goal the research process is carried out again to find out anomalies of the planning and forming new strategies. This completes the strategy cycle.

out short term ratios that will effect working capital of every company

FUND FLOW ANALYSIS :and application of funds.

WORKING CAPITAL
INTRODUCTION:Working capital refers to that part of firms capital which is required for financing short term or current Assets such as cash, debtors, marketable security and inventories. Thus funds invested in current assets keep revolving fast and are being constantly converted in cash and this cash flows out again in exchange for other current assets. It is also known as revolving or circulating capital or short term capital. Working capital may be regarded as the life blood of business. Working capital is of major importance to internal and external analysis because of its close relationship with the current day to day operations of a business. Every business needs funds for two purposes. * Long term funds are required to create production facilities through purchase of fixed assets such as plants, machineries, lands, buildings & etc * Short term funds are required for the purchase of raw materials, payment of wages, and other day-to-day expenses.

It is other wise known as revolving or circulating capit.l It is nothing but the difference between current assets and current liabilities. i.e. Working Capital = Current Asset – Current Liability. Businesses use capital for construction, renovation, furniture, software, equipment, or machinery. It is also commonly used to purchase inventory, or to make payroll. Capital is also used often by businesses to put a down payment down on a piece of commercial real estate. Working capital is essential for any business to succeed. It is becoming increasingly important to have access to more working capital when we need it.

Current Assets

Current Liabilities

Working capital in terms of five components:
1. Cash and equivalents: - This most liquid form of working
capital requires constant supervision. A good cash budgeting and forecasting system provides answers to key questions such as: Is the cash level adequate to meet current expenses as they come due? What is the timing relationship between cash inflow and outflow? When will peak cash needs occur? When and how much bank borrowing will be needed to meet any cash shortfalls? When will repayment be expected and will the cash flow cover it?

2. Accounts receivable: -

Many businesses extend credit

their customers. If you do, is the amount of accounts receivable reasonable relative to sales? How rapidly are receivables being collected? Which customers are slow to pay and what should be done about them?

3. Inventory: - Inventory is often as much as 50 percent of a firm's
current assets, so naturally it requires continual scrutiny. Is the inventory level reasonable compared with sales and the nature of your business? What's the rate of inventory turnover compared with other companies in your type of business?

4. Accounts payable:- Financing by suppliers is common in
small business; it is one of the major sources of funds for entrepreneurs. Is the amount of money owed suppliers reasonable relative to what you purchase? What is your firm's payment policy doing to enhance or detract from your credit rating?

5. Accrued expenses and taxes payable: These are obligations of your company at any given time and represent a future outflow of cash.

Two different concepts of working capital are:Balance sheet or Traditional concept Operating cycle concept.

Balance sheet or Traditional concept:-

It shows

the position of the firm at certain point of time. It is calculated in the basis of balance sheet prepared at a specific date. In this method there are two type of working capital:-

• Gross working capital

Net working capital

Gross working capital:-

It refers to the firm’s investment in

current assets. The sum of the current assets is the working capital of the business. The sum of the current assets is a quantitative aspect of working capital. Which emphasizes more on quantity than its quality, but it fails to reveal the true financial position of the firm because every increase in current liabilities will decrease the gross working capital.

Net working capital:liabilities.

It is the difference between current assets

and current liabilities or the excess of total current assets over total current

Working capital= current assets – current liabilities.

Net working capital: - It is also can defined as that part of a
firm’s current assets which is financed with long term funds. It may be either positive or negative. When the current assets exceed the current liability, the working capital is positive and vice versa.

Operating cycle concept:- The duration or time required to
complete the sequence of events right from purchase of raw material for cash to the realization of sales in cash is called the operating cycle or working capital cycle.

• The length of the production cycle (or) work in process. • The length of sales cycle during which finished goods are to be kept waiting for sales.
• •

The average period of credit allowed to customers. The amount of cash required to make advance payment.

Importance of Working Capital Ratios
Ratio analysis can be used by financial executives to check upon the efficiency with which workingcapital is being used in the enterprise. The following are the important ratios to measure the efficiency of working capital. The following, easily calculated, ratios are important measures of working capital utilization.

Ratios
Stock turnover (in days)

Formulae
Average Stock * 365/ Cost of Goods Sold

Result Interpretation
= x days On average, you turn over the value of your entire stock every x days. You may need to break this down into product groups for effective stock management. Obsolete stock, slow moving lines will extend overall stock turnover days. Faster production, fewer product lines, just in time ordering will reduce average days. = x days It takes you on average x days to collect monies due to you. If your official credit terms are 45 day and it takes you 65 days. One or more large or slow debts can drag out the average days. Effective debtor management will minimize the days. = x days On average, you pay your suppliers every x days. If you negotiate better credit terms this will increase. If you pay earlier, say, to get a discount this will decline. If you simply defer paying your suppliers (without agreement) this will also increase - but your reputation, the quality of service and any flexibility provided by your suppliers may suffer. = x times Current Assets are assets that you can readily turn in to cash or will do so within 12 months in the course of business.

Quick Ratio

Working Capital Ratio

(Total Current Assets Inventory)/ Total Current Liabilities (Inventory + Receivables Payables)/ Sales

Liabilities are amount you are due to pay within the coming 12 months. For example, 1.5 times means that you should be able to lay your hands on $1.50 for every $1.00 you owe. Less than 1 times e.g. 0.75 means that you could have liquidity problems and be under pressure to generate sufficient cash to meet oncoming demands. = x times Similar to the Current Ratio but takes account of the fact that it may take time to convert inventory into cash. As % Sales A high percentage means that working capital needs are high relative to your sales.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY AND INFORMATION ANALYSIS:-

Marketing research is the systematic and objective identification, collection, analysis dissemination and use of information for the purpose of improving decision making related to the identification and solution of problems and opportunities in marketing. Each phase of this process is important. We

define or identify the marketing research problem or opportunity and then determine what information is needed to investigate it. Because every marketing opportunity translates into a research problem to be investigated in terms of “problem” and “opportunity”. Next, the various sources of information are identified and a range of data collection methods, varying in report that allows the information to be used for the purpose of management decision making. The main issue being discussed here is the emerging trends of corporate salary account business. For this purpose data was collected using both the primary and secondary sources. The secondary data was collected from the various product catalogues and internet while the primary data was collected from the field from builders, architects, dealers and customers. Information was collected by using a carefully prepared questionnaire which was designed keeping in mind all the aspects of the issue. The questionnaire was used to find out the following information: To get personal as well as the company’s detail. • To get information about the employees like how many employees are working on the payroll of the company. • To know that how they are paying salary to there employees. • With which bank they are banking and why?

• Are they aware of corporate salary accounts? • What is the level of their satisfaction with the current salary account? • What kind of services they expect from the bank? • How far their expectations are met? • The degree of loyalty of the customer towards their bank. A separate schedule was designed for the corporate to carry out project mapping in order to find out the prospect of the salary accounts. The following information was obtained from them: • Name and number of the directors. • Type of the company, where it is public limited, privet limited, solo ownership etc. • Name of the concerned person, who looks after payroll of the company. • The number of branches. • The number of employees on the payroll of the company. • The name of current bank with which they are banking. • Reasons for choosing that bank. • Last month net salary disbursement to find out average salary per employee.

Conducting an experiment or organizing a survey and doing research has become the part of life in modern times. Research methodology refers to the various sequential steps to be adopted by a researcher in studying a problem with certain object/objects in view.

The research was carried out in various phases. The first few phases were used to collect information. Based on this information, a hypothesis was assumed that with the use of appropriate strategy in customer service and use of proper elements of marketing mix the sales of salary accounts can be increased to garner a bigger pie of the market share. The final few phases were used to analyze the information so collected from various quarters. The research process carried out in various phases is discussed below:Phase I. Understanding the company and its products. The various parameters considered in the sale of these salary accounts. Getting

knowledge about the competitors in the area and knowing about the various promotion and technique of selling.

Phase II. This phase include visits to various companies to collect relevant data. The primary data was collected through Questionnaire and interviews with corporate. This data was further extended through dialogues with company officials. The secondary data was collected through websites, company files and brochures and other documents of past and present.

Phase III. In this phase the data so collected is analyzed using various statistical and market research tools to draw inference for the purpose of decision making. The analysis consists of product mapping, project mapping, competitor analysis, new opportunities, developing a brand equity etc. Phase IV. In this phase actual reporting of the findings and analysis will be prepared and submitted the same to the company.

Sample Size

The customer survey has been done in the Shri Hargobind Pur city. And sample size for this survey was 75. Data are correlated from different areas of Janakpuri,Delhi, which are reported by names. .

RESULTS, ANALYSIS AND DISCUSSIONS

The basic purpose of the study conducted was to find the emerging trends in the Corporate salary market and based on those trends a formulating strategy for the Corporate salary accounts segment. Data was collected based on the above aim in mind, regarding the purpose of the salary accounts in the company and the various parameters on the basis of which these salary accounts are evaluated etc. According to survey, ICICI Bank is largest share holder in this segment. Whereas ICICI Bank, Citi Bank are the banks which don’t take much time to do it. It is also fact that HDFC Bank are having strong customer base and tie up with most of the Big companies of India including TCS, Wipro, TATA Motors, Reliance communications, EXL, Bharti Airtel, Loreal, Idea cellular and many others.. Customer satisfaction level is also high as compare to other banks.

The above figure shows that corporate salary accounts market in banking industry is mainly captured by ICICI Bank. Whereas HDFC Bank is second

large player in this segment. And Axis Bank and SBI are doing well as compare to others.

The above figure shows that IT sector is one who holds major market share in this segment. Thus the company should have mainly focus on this segment as well as the manufacturing segment in the market.

WHY PEPOLE ARE NOT SATISFIED?

In the following diagram, we can see that 72% people are satisfied by the existing banks like ICICI, AXIS, PNB and other cooperative banks. Dissatisfaction is 12% and closing of the account is 3% and other reasons are 10%. In KAM, we found that existing clients did not want to change there bank because their bank are giving them customized services and changing the bank takes long time.

LIMITATIONS:The project is based on certain factors which also have their own shortcomings. These factors need to be looked into. Since the report proposes to study the Financial institution in Punjab & Sind Bank there may be certain factors which limit the scope of the project. These are discussed below.  Non serious attitude of the customer.  We cannot force corporate to tell why they are using our competitors product, there can be various reasons like they have taken loan from those bank, or near by the company, etc.  This product is valuable and for long term with no charges. So we can not force each and every company to get it with Punjab & Sind Bank without knowing about the reputation of the company.

 This research is only limited to Gurdaspur city and near by area only. Some time some of the people can give wrong or incomplete information so that to find out actual result we can not fully believe on the questionnaire.

OBSERVATIONS RECOMMENDATIONS:To work on this project I have find out some of the points where Salary managers should think. And by which they can increase customer base as well as they can give better service to the customers. They are as follows…. (1) Local toll free customer care numbers should be there to solve the

queries and problems as well as for new inquiry of the customer for corporate salary accounts. (2) Informative advertising should be started because lots of new entrants and traditional business houses are not aware about corporate salary accounts so that they can come to know about it.

(3) Necessity to decrease processing time because Punjab & Sind Bank takes too much time for its process as compared to its competitors and in present scenario customer wants less processing time and less documentations to make banking easy. So it is very important to decrease processing time. 4) Weekly feedback to each and every sales officer and daily dual reporting system can increase work efficiency. Sometimes sales people don’t do work properly and they don’t achieve targets. Some of the sales people do better job and they deserve appreciation. So for that matter, timely feedback can play important role to enhance the sales and work efficiency of the sales team. (5) There is a need to make documentation process more flexible because Punjab & Snid Bank wants 4 Photo identities (Driving license, Passport, Voter ID, PAN card) as a documentary proof of the employee to open his salary account and if person is not carrying any one of the above then it becomes difficult to open his salary account because bank cannot accept other documents due to rules even if the company is ready to give in writing that a particular person is working with us. (6) Necessary to motivate team to improve there performance. This is corporate sales, which is tough job. Some time team members become frustrated due to work pressure and high targets. So to get best from the team, salary manager should use various managerial techniques to reduce pressure and to create good work environment. (7) After tie up with any company, service should be even better so that customer base can increase and percentage of unsatisfied customer can be reduced.

(8) Ability to solve the query and difficulties of the customer is essential aspect of the business. For this matter sales team should be properly train and all the formalities they must know, otherwise approach to corporate many times is not possible and creates bad impression about the bank. Training programs for sales executive should be conducted every month.
