CIRCULAR TO ALL CBS BRANCHES & OFFICES IN INDIA
Sub. File ADV.-2. ISSUED BY RETAIL BANKING DEPARTMENT

Dear Sir, Re: Retail Banking: Repositioning of Baroda Loan for Personal computer as Baroda Loan for Laptop & Personal Computer. Acknowledging the importance of information technology in daily life, the bank has launched a product in April, 1998 which provides finance for purchase of personal computers. The product has last been modified in July, 2003. Education pattern has gone under metamorphosis as now children even reading in primary schools are exposed to computers as a part of their educational curriculum. In view of use of computers in every sphere of life, computer literacy has become integral part of educational courses irrespective of specialized field chosen by a student for his future career plan. Due to continuous technological advancements, prices of desk-top and laptop computers have fallen significantly. Now a laptop of reputed brand is also available in less than Rs. 40000/-. In view of low prices, sleek size and easy in carrying anywhere, laptops are becoming more popular in students and young executives. There is a good scope for financing of laptops under the product. However, it has been observed that branches are not marketing the product for purchase of laptops under the misnomer that it may not be included in our product i.e. Loan for Personal Computer. Hence, it has been decided to rename our existing product as Baroda Loan for Laptops & Personal Computer. To promote the product the Bank is proposing for aggressive publicity through print media. The theme of the publicity may be “Gift your loved ones, a Laptop on the next birthday” or other theme of similar nature. In most of such cases, loans will be availed by parents, branches should endeavour to open savings bank account of the minor / major ward of the loanees. This will provide an opportunity to the branch to establish banking relationship with younger generation from very early stage. Our publicity campaign should result in a large number of enquiries / leads for the product. Hence, branches are advised to respond quickly to all such requests and try to convert them in sale. Besides students, the branches must target young executives, who have good scope not only for this product but also potential for other retail liability / asset products. We are sure that branches will put in concerted efforts in selling the product and able to bring a large number of youngsters under its fold.
Yours faithfully,

(Ajai Kumar) General Manager (Retail Banking & Marketing) Encl: Product Profile.
