IDBI Bank
Overview of development banking in India The concept of development banking rose only after Second World War , Successive of the Great Depression in 1930s. The demand for reconstruction funds for the affected nations compelled in setting up a worldwide institution for reconstructions. As a result the IBRD was set up in 1945 as a worldwide institution for development and reconstruction. This concept has been widened all over the world and resulted in setting up of large number of banks around the world which coordinating the developmental activities of different nations with different objectives among the world. The course of development of financial institutions and markets during the postIndependence period was largely guided by the process of planned development pursued in India with emphasis on mobilisation of savings and channelising investment to meet Plan priorities. At the time of Independence in 1947, India had a fairly well-developed banking system. The adoption of bank dominated financial development strategy was aimed at meeting the sectoral credit needs, particularly of agriculture and industry. Towards this end, the Reserve Bank concentrated on regulating and developing mechanisms for institution building. The commercial banking network was expanded to cater to the requirements of general banking and for meeting the short-term working capital requirements of industry and agriculture. Specialised development financial institutions (DFIs) such as the IDBI, NABARD, NHB and SIDBI, etc., with majority

ownership of the Reserve Bank were set up to meet the long-term financing requirements of industry and agriculture. The early history of Indian banking and finance was marked by strong governmental regulation and control. The roots of the national system were in the State Bank of India Act of 1955, which nationalized the former Imperial Bank of India and its seven associate banks. In the early days, this national system operated along side of a large private banking system. Banks were limited in their operational flexibility by the government’s desire to maintain employment in the banking system and were often drawn into troublesome loans in order to further the government’s social goals. The financial institutions in India were set up under the strong control of both central and state Governments, and the Government utilized these institutions for the achievements in planning and development of the nation as a whole. The all India financial institutions can be classified under four heads according to their economic importance that are: All-India Development Banks, Specialized Financial Institutions, Investment Institutions, State-level institutions, Other institutions.

Industrial Development Bank of India (IDBI) The Industrial Development Bank of India (IDBI) was established on July 1, 1964 under an Act of Parliament as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Reserve Bank of India. In February 1976, the ownership of IDBI was transferred to the Government of India and it was made the principal financial institution for coordinating the activities of institutions engaged in financing, promoting and developing industry in the country. Although Government shareholding in the Bank came down below 100% following IDBI’s public issue in July 1995, the former continues to be the major shareholder (current shareholding: 58.47%). During the four decades of its existence, IDBI has been instrumental not only in establishing a well-developed, diversified and efficient industrial and institutional structure but also adding a qualitative dimension to the process of industrial development in the country. IDBI has played a pioneering role in fulfilling its mission of promoting industrial growth through financing of medium and long-term projects, in consonance with national plans and priorities.

Over the years, IDBI has enlarged its basket of products and services, covering almost the entire spectrum of industrial activities, including manufacturing and services. IDBI provides financial assistance, both in rupee and foreign currencies, for green-field projects as also for expansion, modernisation and diversification purposes. In the wake of financial sector reforms unveiled by the Government since 1992, IDBI evolved an array of fund and fee-based services with a view to providing an integrated solution to meet the entire demand of financial and corporate advisory requirements of its clients. IDBI also provides indirect financial assistance by way of refinancing of loans extended by State-level financial institutions and banks and by way of rediscounting of bills of exchange arising out of sale of indigenous machinery on deferred payment terms. IDBI has played a pioneering role, particularly in the pre-reform era (1964-91),in catalyzing broad based industrial development in the country in keeping with its Government-ordained ‘development banking’ charter. In pursuance of this mandate, IDBI’s activities transcended the confines of pure long-term lending to industry and encompassed, among others, balanced industrial growth through development of backward areas, modernisation of specific industries, employment generation, entrepreneurship development along with support services for creating a deep and vibrant domestic capital market, including development of apposite institutional framework. In September 2003, IDBI diversified its business domain further by acquiring the entire shareholding of Tata Finance Limited in Tata Home finance Ltd., signaling IDBI’s foray into the retail finance sector. The fully-owned housing finance subsidiary has since been renamed ‘IDBI Home finance Limited’. In view of the signal changes in the operating environment, following initiation of reforms since the early nineties, Government of India has decided to transform IDBI into a commercial bank without eschewing its secular development finance obligations. The migration to the new business model of commercial banking, with its gateway to low-cost current, savings bank deposits, would help overcome most of the limitations of the current business model of development finance while simultaneously enabling it to diversify its client/ asset base. Towards this end, the IDB (Transfer of Undertaking and Repeal) Act 2003 was passed by Parliament in December 2003. The Act provides for repeal of IDBI Act, corporatisation of IDBI (with majority Government holding; current share: 58.47%) and transformation into a commercial bank. The provisions of the Act have come into force from July 2, 2004 in terms of a Government Notification to this effect. The Notification facilitated

formation, incorporation and registration of Industrial Development Bank of India Ltd. as a company under the Companies Act, 1956 and a deemed Banking Company under the Banking Regulation Act 1949 and helped in obtaining requisite regulatory and statutory clearances, including those from RBI. IDBI would commence banking business in accordance with the provisions of the new Act in addition to the business being transacted under IDBI Act, 1964 from October 1, 2004, the ‘Appointed Date’ notified by the Central Government. IDBI has firmed up the infrastructure, technology platform and reorientation of its human capital to achieve a smooth transition. On July 29, 2004, the Board of Directors of IDBI and IDBI Bank accorded in principle approval to the merger of IDBI Bank with the Industrial Development Bank of India Ltd. to be formed incorporated under the Companies Act, 1956 pursuant to the IDB (Transfer of Undertaking and Repeal) Act, 2003 (53 of 2003), subject to the approval of shareholders and other regulatory and statutory approvals. A mutually gainful proposition with positive implications for all stakeholders and clients, the merger process is expected to be completed during the current financial year ending March 31, 2005. IDBI would continue to provide the extant products and services as part of its development finance role even after its conversion into a banking company. In addition, the new entity would also provide an array of wholesale and retail banking products, designed to suit the specific needs cash flow requirements of corporates and individuals. In particular, IDBI would leverage the strong corporate relationships built up over the years to offer customised and total financial solutions for all corporate business needs, single-window appraisal for term loans and working capital finance, strategic advisory and “Hand-holding” support at the implementation phase of projects, among others. IDBI’s transformation into a commercial bank would provide a gateway to lowcost deposits like Current and Savings Bank Deposits. This would have a positive impact on the Bank’s overall cost of funds and facilitate lending at more competitive rates to its clients. The new entity would offer various retail products, leveraging upon its existing relationship with retail investors under its existing Suvidha Flexi-bond schemes. In the emerging scenario, the new IDBI hopes to realize its mission of positioning itself as a one stop super-shop and most preferred brand for providing total financial and banking solutions to corporates and individuals, capitalising on its intimate knowledge of the Indian industry and client requirements and large retail base on the liability side.

Foreign Exchange Services:
Spot Contracts: Spot contract is the simplest and most common foreign exchange transaction very widely used by the corporates to cover their receivables and payables. It is a commitment by the client to buy or sell one currency against another at a fixed rate for delivery two business days after the transaction. Example: Say an Indian company wants to pay its overseas supplier in US dollars 5 MM. Using a Spot Contract it purchases dollars for immediate (2 business days). It has funds delivered to the supplier's Bank Account overseas. The exchange rate is fixed by the current market. The equivalent Indian Rupees is debited to the company's account. Forward Contracts: With Forward contracts, you can negotiate a rate today to exchange foreign currency on a future date. Forward contract is a contract to buy or sell currency on a future date at a predetermined rate. The rate on the forward exchange contract is based on the spot rate and the differential in interest rates between the two markets involved. This type of transaction helps you manage your foreign exchange risk because, by setting the exchange rate in advance, you eliminate the uncertainty related to fluctuations in the currency until the time you pay for it or receive it. Example: Say, an Indian company has an import payable USD 5 million in three months from a US exporter. The company must protect itself from an adverse fluctuation in the exchange rate of USD/INR. Through a forward contract, the company "locks-in" an exchange rate today, and buys USD against INR for delivery 3 months in the future. With the forward contract the company protects itself against downside risk, the possible depreciation of INR in three months. There is no upside potential, however, if the INR appreciates, the company is committed to the terms of the contract. • •

Last date holiday and declared holiday.

Accordingly, on the settlement date, cash payments based on contract (fixed) and the settlement rate, are made by the bank and the customer. The settlement rate is the agreed benchmark or reference rate prevailing on the settlement date. Forward rate agreement provides means for hedging the interest rate risk arising on account of lending or borrowing made at fixed or variable interest rates. Currency Swaps: A foreign exchange transaction in which a bank agrees to exchange specified amount of one currency for another currency at a fixed price, i.e., the bank and the customer agree to exchange payment streams or cash flows both in terms of principal and interest. Simply stated, currency swap is an extended forward contract and normally for periods beyond one year. An Indian company that has raised the borrowing in foreign currency can exchange the same for the equivalent INR thereby matching foreign currency liabilities. There will be series of forward contracts for both principal and interest payments at the agreed exchange rate over the period of the loan/borrowing. The company will have to execute ISDA documentation with the bank. • Phone Banking: •

Recent developments:

To meet emerging challenger and to keep up with reforms in financial sector, IDBI has taken steps to reshape its role from a development finance institution to a commercial institution. With Industrial Development Bank (Transfer of Undertaking and Repeal) Act, 2003, IDBI attained the status of a limited company viz. "Industrial Development Bank of India Limited" (IDBIL). Subsequently, the Central Government notified October 1, 2004 as the 'Appointed Date' and RBI issued the requisite notification on September 30, 2004 incorporating IDBI Ltd. as a 'scheduled bank' under the RBI Act, 1934. Consequently, IDBI, the erstwhile Development Financial Institution of the country, formally entered the portals of banking business as IDBIL from October 1, 2004, over and above the business currently being transacted. As of July,2006 the employees association of the IFCI have sought its merger with the Bank.
