What is customer satisfaction?
Customer satisfaction refers to how satisfied customers are with the products or services they receive from a particular agency. The level of satisfaction is determined not only by the quality and type of customer experience but also by the customer’s expectations. A customer may be defined as someone who has a direct relationship with, or is directly affected by your agency and Receives or relies on one or more of your agency’s services or products. Customers in human services are commonly referred to as service users, consumers or clients. They can be individuals or groups. An organization with a strong customer service culture places the customer at the centre of service design, planning and service delivery. Customer centric organizations will:  Determine the customer’s expectations when they plan listen to the customer as they design.  Focus on the delivery of customer service activities value customer feedback when they measure performance.

IMPORTANCE
There are a number of reasons why customer satisfaction is important in Banking Sector:  Meeting the needs of the customer is the underlying rationale for the existence of community service organizations. Customers have a right to quality services that deliver outcomes.  Organizations that strive beyond minimum standards and exceed the expectations of their customers are likely to be leaders in their sector.  Customers are recognized as key partners in shaping service development and assessing quality of service delivery. The process for measuring customer satisfaction and obtaining feedback on organizational performance are valuable tools for quality and continuous service improvement

HISTORY OF BANKING IN INDIA
Phase I

The General Bank of India was set up in the year 1786. Next came Bank of Hindustan and Bengal Bank. The East India Company established Bank of Bengal (1809), Bank of Bombay (1840) and Bank of Madras (1843) as independent units and called it Presidency Banks. These three banks were amalgamated in 1920 and Imperial Bank of India was established which started as private shareholders banks, mostly Europeans shareholders. In 1865 Allahabad Bank was established and first time exclusively by Indians, Punjab National Bank Ltd. was set up in 1894 with headquarters at Lahore. Between 1906 and 1913, Bank of India, Central Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank, Indian Bank, and Bank of Mysore were set up. Reserve Bank of India came in 1935. During the first phase the growth was very slow and banks also experienced periodic failures between 1913 and 1948. There were approximately 1100 banks, mostly small. To streamline the functioning and activities of commercial banks, the Government of India came up with The Banking Companies Act, 1949 which was later changed to Banking Regulation Act 1949 as per amending Act of 1965 (Act No. 23 of 1965). Reserve Bank of India was vested with extensive powers for the supervision of banking in India as the Banking Authority. During those days public has lesser confidence in the banks. As an aftermath deposit mobilization was slow. Abreast of it the savings bank facility provided by the Postal department was comparatively safer. Moreover, funds were largely given to traders.

9

PhaseII Government took major steps in this Indian Banking Sector Reform after independence. In 1955, it nationalized Imperial Bank of India with extensive banking facilities on a large scale especially in rural and semi-urban areas. It formed State Bank of India to act as the principal agent of RBI and to handle banking transactions of the Union and State Governments all over the country.Seven banks forming subsidiary of State Bank of India was nationalised in 1960 on 19th July, 1969, major process of nationalisation was carried out. It was the effort of the then Prime Minister of India, Mrs. Indira Gandhi. 14 major commercial banks in the country were nationalised.Second phase of nationalisation Indian Banking Sector Reform was carried out in 1980 with seven more banks. This step brought 80% of the banking segment in India under Government ownership.The following are the steps taken by the Government of India to Regulate Banking Institutions in the Country: 1949: Enactment of Banking Regulation Act. 1955: Nationalisation of State Bank of India. 1959: Nationalisation of SBI subsidiaries. 1961: Insurance cover extended to deposits. 1969: Nationalisation of 14 major banks. 1971: Creation of credit guarantee corporation. 1975: Creation of regional rural banks. 1980: Nationalisation of seven banks with deposits over 200 crore. After the nationalisation of banks, the branches of the public sector bank India rose to approximately 800% in deposits and advances took a huge jump by 11,000%. Banking in the sunshine of Government ownership gave the public implicit faith and immense confidence about the sustainability of these institutions.

10

PhaseIII This phase has introduced 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 liberalisation 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.The financial system of India has shown a great deal of resilience. It is sheltered from any crisis triggered by any external macroeconomics shock as other East Asian Countries suffered. This is all due to a flexible exchange rate regime, the foreign reserves are high, the capital account is not yet fully convertible, and banks and their customers have limited foreign exchange exposure.

BANKING SYSTEM IN INDIA
A HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE :
We can identify three distinct phases in the history of Indian banking: 1. Early phase from 1786-1969. 2. Nationalization of banks and up to 1991 prior to banking sector reforms. 3. New phase of Indian banking with the advent of financial banking. Banking in India has its origin as early or Vedic period. It is believed that the transitions from many lending to banking must have occurred even before Manu, the great Hindu furriest, who has devoted a section of his work to deposit and advances and laid down rules relating to the rate of interest. During the mogul period, the indigenous banker played a very important role in lending money and financing foreign trade and commerce. During the days of the East India Company it was the turn of 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 other which followed was the Bank of Hindustan and Bengal Bank. The Bank of Hindustan is reported to have continued till 1906. While other two failed in the meantime. In the first half of the 19th century the East India Company established there banks, The bank of Bengal in 1809, the Bank of Bombay in 1840 and the Bank of Bombay in1843. These three banks also known as the Presidency banks were the independent units and functioned well. These three banks were amalgamated in 1920 and new bank, the Imperial Bank of India was established on 27th January, 1921. With the passing of the State Bank of India Act in 1955 the undertaking of the Imperial Bank of India was taken over by the newly constituted SBI. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) which is the Central bank was established in April, 1935 by passing Reserve bank of India act 1935. The Central office of RBI is in Mumbai and it controls all the other banks in the country. In the wake of Swadeshi Movement, number of banks with the Indian management were established in the country namely, Punjab National Bank Ltd., Bank of India Ltd., Bank of Baroda Ltd., Canara Bank. Ltd. on 19th July 1969, 14 20

major banks of the country were nationalized and on 15th April 1980, 6 more commercial private sector banks were taken over by the government.

Last five years growth in India
If we look at 5 years historical performance of different types of players in the banking industry, public sector bank has grown its deposits, advances and business per employee by the highest rate – 21.7%, 23% and 21.1% respectively. As far as net interest income is concerned, private banks are ahead in the race by reporting 24.2% growth, followed by pubic banks (21.4%) and then by foreign banks (14.8%). Though the growth in the business per employee and profit per employee has been the highest for public sector banks, in absolute terms, foreign banks have the highest business per employee as well as profit per employee.

21

In the last 5 years, foreign and private sector banks have earned significantly higher return on total assets as compared to their pubic peers. If we look at its trend, foreign banks show an overall decreasing trend, private banks an increasing trend and Public banks have been more or less stagnant. The net NPA of public sector bank was also significantly higher than that of private and foreign banks at the end of FY11, which indicates the asset quality of public banks is comparatively poor. The Capital Adequacy ratio was also very high for private and foreign bank as compared to public banks. In conclusion, we could say that the current position of ROA, Net NPA and CAR of different kinds of players in the industry indicates that going ahead; public banks will have to face relatively more problems as compared to private and foreign banks.

LITERATURE REVIEW
Accounting to Parasuraman et al, the five dimensions of service quality are reliability, responsiveness, assurance, empathy, and quality of tangibles referred to as SERVQUAL. There are three types of customer expectations predicted service,desired service and adequate service which presents a comparison between customer evaluation of service quality and customer satisfaction (Valerie A. Zeithaml, Lonard L. Berry, and A. Parasuraman, 1993). SERVQUAL is widely used within service industries to understand the perceptions of target customers regarding their service need; it may also be applied internally to understand employee's perception of service quality with the objective of achieving service improvement (Zeithmal, Parasuraman and Berry 1988). SERVQUAL scale is a principal instrument in the services marketing literature forecastessing quality (Parasuraman vd., 1991; Parasuraman vd., 1988). This instrument has been widely utilized by both manager Parasuraman vd., 1991) and academics (Babakus and Boller, 1992; Carman, 1990) to assess customer perceptions of service quality for a variety of services (e.g. Banks, credit card companies, repair and maintenance companies)., The results of the initial published application of the SERVQUAL instrument indicated five dimensions of service quality emerged across a variety of services. These dimensions include tangibles, reliability, responsiveness ess, assurance and empathy (Zeithaml at al, 1990: 176; Brensinger and Lambert, 1990; Crompton and MacKaey, 1989). Tangibles are the physical evidence of service, reliability involves consistency of performance and dependability, responsiveness concerns the willingness or readiness of employees to provide services assurance corresponds to the knowledge and courtesy of employees and their ability to inspire trust and confidence, and finally, empathy pertains to caring, individualized attention that a firm provides it customers (Lassar at al., 2000. The main aim of study is to assess service quality of insurance companies. The study applying cronbach's alpha and Gap Model i.e.; the actual and the desired service quality. The questionnaire used in the study is comprised of three parts. Part A containes demographic profile of respondents including gender, age group, marital status, education, relevant sector. Part B includes experctations of respondents using a five-point Likert scale ranging from "strongly disagree=1" to "strongly agree". Part C consists perception. The data was analysed with the Statistical Package Program for 38

Social Sciences (SPSS 12 for Windows). The basic analysis and tests utilized in the study include reliability analysis, include frequency and percentage analysis.

GAP MODEL

39

1. KNOWLEDGE GAP: This gap arises when there is no direct interaction

with customers, unwillingness to ask customer about expectations lack of customer interaction and market segmentation to understand need of every segment.gap arises when the difference arises what customer expects of a service and what management perceives the customers to expect.
2. STANDARD GAP :What customer receive from the bank absence of

customer deliver standards of service delivery ,absence of formal quality control goals, vague or undefined service design.
3. DELIVERY GAP: After undergoing with the different bank customer

finally undergo with the bank by considering that he will receive what he expect but due to lack of right employee or their training ,empowerment this gap arises.
4. COMMUNICATION GAP: Unrealistic communication to customer,

sometime the employee over promise to customer then what they are offering or advertising. The prime cause of the gap is the internal communication that may be between heads. 5. SERVICE GAP: This gap arises when the bank promises to give there best service to there customer but fail to offer the customer what they promise to there customer. Bank regularly follow them after providing loan they will pay less attention.

MARKET OVERVIEW
Mumbai, Jan 17, 2012: HDFC Bank has been featured by Harvard Business Review on an elite list of 10 companies globally which have grown their net income by 5% every year for the 10-year period ended 2012. A report titled “How The Growth Outliers Do It” by Rita Gunther. McGrath, a professor at Columbia Business School, says only 10 of the surveyed 2,347 organizations, all with market capitalization of US$1 billion and above, have achieved this consistent performance. What makes this even more special is that HDFC Bank is the only Bank on the list. While there were three companies from the US, 2 each from India and Spain, and one each from Japan, Slovenia and China. Infosys is the other Indian company on the list. Yahoo Japan (Japan), Cognizant (US), and Atmos Energy (US) are some of other prominent names on the list. These companies have been recognized for “prosper(ing) over the long term” and forbeing “more stable and innovative than their competition””, as the report puts it.“Steady, predictable growth is what every big company strives for and what investors prize above all else…… Steady, consistent growth is difficult to achieve even at modest rates, never mind by the double digits that corporate leaders are fond of promising,” the report says. According to the report, these companies stand out from for the rest due to the following traits: “They make small bets early and diversify their portfolios”, are “active acquirers”, “have processes that support speed and flexibility”, “build innovations into everyday operations”, and “hold on to their talent and keep their senior leadership stable”. The report further observed: “HDFC's (sic) history of entering new growth markets is illustrative. In 1998 HDFC joined the Cirrus interbank network so that Master card holders worldwide could use its ATMs. In 2001 it became the first bank in India to launch an international debit card, in association with Visa. It introduced various credit card innovations, including a card specifically for farmers…... HDFC (sic) moved early and built from initial success in other markets as well, including tele-banking, mobile banking, and foreign exchange services.”

CONCLUSION FROM THE SURVEY:
At the end I would like to conclude that The Indian banking market is growing at an astonishing rate, with Assets expected to reach US$1 trillion by 2010. HDFC bank had a network of 1,142 branches And 3,295 automated teller machines in 528 cities in India.The majority of customers are satisfied. But the bank should target on the rest of the customers who are not satisfied. The customers are aware about the bank’s services but the Bank should try to create more awareness among people. HDFC Bank should lay more stress on advertisements, both in print as well as in other media for this purpose. Number of formalities should reduce, as customer feels irritated with lots of formalities and it will save the time of customer and Bank also.

RECOMMENDATIONS
The two point remedies for H.D.F.C through which it can recover its lost grounds are: 1. Retailing is the new mantra in marketing these days, H.D.F.C should come up with its exclusive branches in metros and sub-urban areas. In this way it can not only decrease number of intermediaries but also direct contact with the consumer can be established. 2. H.D.F.C should identify that there are two segments in Indian banking market that have vast potential which are youth and rural market. So, H.D.F.C should introduce product specifically to this segment, there is specific consumer services in the market which leverages on the youth and rural aspect of India. The organizational pressure, tight financial control and overall dull ness make the marketers to sulk and squeeze. But, marketers have to be more focused just apply themselves. Then they can rejoice that the spring will not be too far. Apart from the usual 4Ps, its all in the recessionary 3P’s, perception, planning and plundering of the market to find growth out of de-growth. One who finds the opportunity reaps the benefit. Some time, slow down may be a blessing in disguise for some companies. Upon compulsions, some companies may be forced to enter some new categories and either knowingly or unknowingly they may end up having hit the jackpot with some niche brand winners! Consumers become a rare commodity in a slow down. Increase promotions and incentives to lure them. The Indian market has become so intense that every player, including the local brand player has become intelligent enough to come out with some scheme or the other. As a great brand builder and with principles of strategic marketing, companies may have a tendency to give a stoic smile on the lesser mortals. It’s a trap and do not ever dare to miss the race. Its time to be an Indian in India.

63

LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY
1-The study was confined to DELHI & NOIDA only and differences in perception and profile may exist for other parts of the country. 2-The sampling was based on convenience that could have given rise to errors. 3-This result may not be appropriate for the whole population (i.e. universe). customers were reluctant to answer certain questions. 4-The result generated out of the study is completely dependent on the nature of the response given by the customers. 5-Short span of time was a limiting factor. 6-Customer satisfaction varies from time to time. It will not remain constant. 7The collected data could be bias as the respondents might have also given fake information. 8-There is possibility of ambiguous doing this Project replies or omission of replies altogether to certain questions, interpretation of omission is difficult. 9- It is difficult to know whether willing respondents are truly representative.
