Banking is nearly as old as civilization. The history of banking could be said to have started with the appearance of money. The first record of minted metal coins was in Mesopotamia in about 2500B.C. the first European banknotes, which was handwritten appeared in1661, in Sweden. Cheques and printed paper money appeared in the 1700s and 1800s, with many banks created to deal with increasing trade. The history of banking in each country runs in lines with the development of trade and industry, and with the level of political confidence and stability. The ancient Romans developed an advanced banking system to serve their vast trade network, which extended throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. Modern banking began in Venice. The word bank comes from the Italian word banco, meaning bench, because moneylenders worked on benches in market places. The bank of Venice was established in 1171 to help the government raise finance for a war. At the same time, in England merchant started to ask goldsmiths to hold gold and silver in their safes in return for a fee. Receipts given to the Merchant were sometimes used to buy or sell, with the metal itself staying under lock and key. The goldsmith realized that they could lend out some of the gold and silver that they had and charge interest, as not all of the merchants would ask for the gold and silver back at the same time. Eventually, instead of charging the merchants, the goldsmiths paid them to deposit their gold and silver. The bank of England was formed in 1694 to borrow money from the public for the government to finance the war of Augsburg against France. By 1709, goldsmith were using bank of England notes of their own receipts. New technology transformed the banking industry in the 1900s round the world, banks merged into larger and fewer groups and expanded into other country.

In todays dynamic world banks are inevitable for the development of a country. Banks play a pivotal role in enhancing each and every sector. They have helped bring a draw of development on the worlds horizon and developing country like India is no exception.

Banks fulfills the role of a financial intermediary. This means that it acts as a vehicle for moving finance from those who have surplus money to (however temporarily) those who have deficit. In everyday branch terms the banks channel funds from depositors whose accounts are in credit to borrowers who are in debit. Without the intermediary of the banks both their depositors and their borrowers would have to contact each other directly. This can and does happen of course. This is what has lead to the very foundation of financial institution like banks.

Before few decades there existed some influential people who used to land money.But a substantially high rate of interest was charged which made borrowing of money out of the reach of the majority of the people so there arose a need for a financial intermediate.

The Bank have developed their roles to such an extent that a direct contact between the depositors and borrowers in now known as disintermediation.

Banking industry has always revolved around the traditional function of taking deposits, money transfer and making advances. Those three are closely related to each other, the objective being to lend money, which is the profitable activity of the three. Taking deposits generates funds for lending and money transfer services are necessary for the attention of deposits. The Bank have introduced progressively more sophisticated versions of these services and have diversified introduction in numerable areas of activity not directly relating to this traditional trinity

CASE STUDY OF HRM IN HDFC BANK - October 3rd, 2011

HDFC Bank uses A Comprehensive HR approach to respond to changing resource needs. Rapid growth in a burgeoning new market should be cause for celebrationunless the organization that's growing can't keep up with the demands of an expanding workforce or simplify the management of multiple databases. But Mumbai, India-based HDFC Bank wasn't about to let that happen. Initially the premier bank in the corporate sector, HDFC Bank began its expansion into the retail market in 1995. Now, as it adds thousands of new customers each day and manages dramatic increases in its retail loan portfolio22 percent in 2003 alonethe bank is facing the challenges that come with rapid success.

"Today's competitive environment means that human resources [HR] must refocus away from activities that sap value from the organization and instead focus on achieving outcomes that improve company performance," says C.N. Ram, head of information technology at HDFC Bank. HDFC was already an established leader in eliminating the inefficiency traditionally associated with resource planning and management, and bank management knew just what to do.

"Due to significant growth in the number of our employees over the past few years, we could no longer handle our human capital management on Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and homegrown reports," says Ram. In addition, management understood that high growth rates might have jeopardized product quality, while tension about relative compensation levels between the sales personnel in the branch and operations could have threatened HDFC Bank's culture.

People are our business ,to The bank decided to implement Oracle Human Resources applications so that HR planning and tracking could be handled more efficiently. "We had already compiled large amounts of data about employees who had been with us for awhile, but we lacked a workable way to store other kinds of information, such as data about family

members and career paths at HDFC Bank," Ram explains. "We can now capture everything, which gives senior management better data for performance evaluations and helps them do better career planning." The solution also allows the bank to compensate on the basis of performance and provide targeted career development, which raises credibility with employees and helps the bank attract and retain top candidates . HDFC Bank has also implemented Oracle's applications for HR analysis and reporting across the enterprise, providing management with the ability to drill down into performance and cost on an exceedingly granular level. This gives the bank the flexibility to tailor employee record-keeping while remaining in compliance with employment laws. Additionally, the automation of actions such as warnings, e-mail notifications, and vacation hour balances gives the bank a complete profile for each employee. "The comprehensive reporting capabilities save a lot of staff time and allow us to handle profiles, skill sets, and training and integrate them with the payroll system," continues Ram.

low cost key to profitability.A big part of the bank's tremendous performance and profitability is tied to the low cost of operations driven by automation and reduced employee costs. The total automation of HR processes has reduced errors and introduced a best-practices approach that encourages employees to perform well and allows them to reap the rewards of their good performance. "Organization-building and our high commitment to HR management are paying off," says Ram. "These kinds of changes can be extremely destabilizing if not managed appropriately, but HDFC Bank has embraced the right formula, and the right applications, for successful employee management and tracking."

HDFC Bank has also implemented Oracle Balanced Scorecard for its HR function, to evaluate the effectiveness of its HR management. Through this approach, the bank is able to measure and improve the effectiveness of support functions and quantify non-financial measures to better track those functions. It has also transformed the HR department from a purely administrative organization to one that has significant input in recruitment, development, and strategic planning. And it's able to track the effect of management systems on shareholder influence, flows, rewards, and work systems.
