I am an ex-employee of Syndicate Bank and KSFC. I left Syndicate Bank in 1991 and till today, except few years when I was working at Chennai, I have practiced as a Pro ject Finance Consultant. My banking experience is there fore around 22 years. I agree that private sector banks are technology oriente d. What exactly is technology? Internal accounts are co mputerized (CBS?) of not only private sector banks but a lso public sector banks. Everyone offers internet bankin g. Everyone now offers RTGS. I am not happy about all the three - RTGS, CBS and Internet Banking - the way it is implemented but the fact remains that these facilities a re available in both public and private sector. The discussion therefore should focus on what we wish t o do in a bank: Cash collection : I know of many nationalilzed banks who also collect cash. Nationalized banks also have cash management services. It is basically the bank staff who are either cooperative or hostile Loans : Private banks have loan products. If you meet the checklilst, your work is done. public sector banks are yet to take that route. Alternatively, if you have a good manager, you are in safest hands. Temporary facilities : Private sector banks can not just deviate from the loan product. This is a big handicap with them Share trading and loan against shares : The biggest danger in a private bank is their margin requirements. They are ruthless at times. If you dont meet the margin requirement, they may even sell it. You can perhaps reason with a public sector bank manager. ICICI and HDFC were both public sector banks catering t o a different segment. They started banking business th ats all. By SR Sham Sunder, CEO/MD/Director Technoaid 4 year s ago

However laking is of willingness. Private Banks can not provi de low cost service since they dont have f unds to back it, they can only grow if they offer better services thats the place Natio nalised Banks are a little failure.

g is an industry where security of money p lays an improtant role with accessibility. N ationalized banks like SBI, Canara Bank, P NB etc. have developed these well.

By Atul Kumar, `Confidential, Confidentia l | 4 years ago Support | Oppose 0 0 I am in favor of nationalized banking syste m. This is the best way to protect the inter est of mass of common people and provid e the required financial support to the nat ion. The major points which make if differ ent from Private Banks: 1. Money if safe for common low earning people. This is top most important for nati on like India where people are iof savy nat ure of their hard earn money. A protectio n is needed. In UK, all money deposited in any bank is safe upto 15000 pounds. India n government should take such steps to p rotect the money of common man from a ny froud/bank failure. 2. Nationalised banks invest money mostl y in India/national project only. They are n ot very profit oriented. They are more co mmitted to the national society than Priva te Banks. 3. Now the time has changed and most of the Nationalised banks are also Tech Savv y which helped them to server customers more friendly. 4. Natinalised banks have far better reach to remote people than any Private Banks. 5. Nationalised banks are accountable and government is involved to make sure the y don't faoul play with people money. Priv ate Banks can easly cheat people and run away with their money. Poor control by R BI and government. There are many other things which make t hem a better choice than Private Banks. T hey needs to more tech savvy and people friendly. By Atul Kumar, `Confidential, Confidentia

5. Young staff in private banks who are qu ick and agressive compared to the aged st aff in nationalised banks who are rather sl ow. For instance when you go to withdra w or deposit cash in nationalised banks th e time they take lot of time for accepting or giving cash even with the counting mac hines with in that time in a pvt bank empl oyee would have paid to 3 customers. By Darshil , CEO/MD/Director, Darshil Cot ton Company | 4 years ago Support | Oppose 2 0 In this computer age, nationalized banks a re far away behind the Private sector bank s. Still they are struggling to automate the ir processes. But is the large customer sup port they have gained before private sect or banks entering the banking segment w hich make them going till now. No doubt, we pay for the services private banks provide. But in new terminology we can say "A BANK is a friend Indeed when we are in need". ATMs and online transact ions have made life easy for the people of this computer age. ICICI Bank and HDFC Bank are the best exa mple to describe the development of the Private Sector Banks in India. They stand a lmost next to the biggest nationalized ban k of India that is STATE BANK OF INDIA. In a short span of time they have the biggest customer base. Therefore, I would rather prefer to go wit h private sector bank instead of a national ized bank. By Dinesh Raghav, Pre-Press Executive, Eli

l | 4 years ago Support | Oppose 0 0 As a common user, I prefer Nationalised b ank like SBI. No matter private sector ban ks gives more returns and interest includi ng better services than SBI, still risk is mor e there. When money is considered, I don' t take risk. There have been cases where u sers faced a lot of problem with private se ctor banks and complined different kind o f complains like money loss. Also about re taining the clients, I can say this from my personal experience with SBI.

Nationalise bank's ATMs are more easily a vailable than private one's. By Anagha Thakur, Corporate Lawyer | 4 years ago Support | Oppose 1 0 Hello sir, I agree with you in every word of yours. W hat one can think in hard times? In the ph ase of recession it was the nationalized Ba nks who took the initiative to lower down the Interest rates followed by the Private banks. As far as the services are concerned Natio nalised banks are a step back, but they stil l manage. Banking is not only business its relationshi p. Whether small or big clients, Nationaliz ed Banks never discourage. One thing most of the population hates is the Loan processing time in Nationalised B anks. well they are more regulated and so precaution is necessary rather than creati ng NPA's.

By Japan Shah, H.O.D, Oxford School of M anagement | 4 years ago Support | Oppose 2 0 I agree with Sham Sunder's detailed & ana lytical view point and Samad for his views on service & security. Most peoplem, me i ncluded, rushed to the private and foreign banks. But after so many years, I find the standards of these private banks falling an d on the other hand, the public sector ban ks seem to be shaping up well. Most of th eir processes are well in place and so is th eir technology implementation. Once they get their customer service systems in plac e, I forsee a lot of customers going back to public sector banks.. me included. If you have ever taken a home loan or a ca r loan you will appreciate the transperanc y of a public sector bank, and also even th ough if one has never taken a car loan, he could still get beaten up by the goons of t hese private banks, just because some of t heir over-worked staff made a mistake.
