Introduction of consumer behaviour

INTRODUCTION

Consumer Behavior
Note: The issues discussed below are covered in more detail at consumer behavior section of this site. Consumer behavior involves the psychological processes that consumers go through in recognizing needs, finding ways to solve these needs, making purchase decisions (e.g., whether or not to purchase a product and, if so, which brand and where), interpret information, make plans, and implement these plans (e.g., by engaging in comparison shopping or actually purchasing a product). Sources of influence on the consumer. The consumer faces numerous sources of influence.

Often, we take cultural influences for granted, but they are significant. An American will usually not bargain with a store owner. This, however, is a common practice in much of the World. Physical factors also influence our behavior. We are more likely to buy a soft drink when we are thirsty, for example, and food manufacturers have found that it is more effective to advertise their products on the radio in the late afternoon when people are getting hungry. A persons self-image will also tend to influence what he or she will buyan upwardly mobile manager may buy a flashy car to project an image of success. Social factors also influence what the consumers buyoften, consumers seek to imitate others whom they admire, and may buy the same brands. The social environment can include both the mainstream culture (e.g., Americans are more likely to have corn flakes or ham and eggs for breakfast than to have rice, which is preferred in 2

many Asian countries) and a subculture (e.g., rap music often appeals to a segment within the population that seeks to distinguish itself from the mainstream population). Thus, sneaker manufacturers are eager to have their products worn by admired athletes. Finally, consumer behavior is influenced by learningyou try a hamburger and learn that it satisfies your hunger and tastes good, and the next time you are hungry, you may consider another hamburger. Consumer Choice and Decision Making: Problem Recognition. One model of consumer decision making involves several steps. The first one is problem recognition you realize that something is not as it should be. Perhaps, for example, your car is getting more difficult to start and is not accelerating well. The second step is information searchwhat are some alternative ways of solving the problem? You might buy a new car, buy a used car, take your car in for repair, ride the bus, ride a taxi, or ride a skateboard to work. The third step involves evaluation of alternatives. A skateboard is inexpensive, but may be ill-suited for long distances and for rainy days. Finally, we have the purchase stage, and sometimes a post-purchase stage (e.g., you return a product to the store because you did not find it satisfactory). In reality, people may go back and forth between the stages. For example, a person may resume alternative identification during while evaluating already known alternatives. Consumer involvement will tend to vary dramatically depending on the type of product. In general, consumer involvement will be higher for products that are very expensive (e.g., a home, a car) or are highly significant in the consumers life in some other way (e.g., a word processing program or acne medication). It is important to consider the consumers motivation for buying products. To achieve this goal, we can use the Means-End chain, wherein we consider a logical progression of consequences of product use that eventually lead to desired end benefit. Thus, for example, a consumer may see that a car has a large engine, leading to fast acceleration, leading to a feeling of performance, leading to a feeling of power, which ultimately improves the consumers self-esteem. A handgun may aim bullets with precision, which enables the user to kill an intruder, which means that the intruder will not be able to harm the consumers family, which achieves the desired end-state of security. In advertising, it is important to portray the desired end-states. Focusing on the large motor will do less good than portraying a successful person driving the car.

Information search and decision making. Consumers engage in both internal and external information search. Internal search involves the consumer identifying alternatives from his or her memory. For certain low involvement products, it is very important that marketing programs achieve top of mind awareness. For example, few people will search the Yellow Pages for fast food restaurants; thus, the consumer must be able to retrieve ones restaurant from memory before it will be considered. For high involvement products, consumers are more likely to use an external search. Before buying a car, for example, the consumer may ask friends opinions, read reviews in Consumer Reports, consult several web sites, and visit several dealerships. Thus, firms that make products that are selected predominantly through external search must invest in having information available to the consumer in neede.g., through brochures, web sites, or news coverage.

A compensatory decision involves the consumer trading off good and bad attributes of a product. For example, a car may have a low price and good gas mileage but slow acceleration. If the price is sufficiently inexpensive and gas efficient, the consumer may 4

then select it over a car with better acceleration that costs more and uses more gas. Occasionally, a decision will involve a non-compensatory strategy. For example, a parent may reject all soft drinks that contain artificial sweeteners. Here, other good features such as taste and low calories cannot overcome this one non-negotiable attribute. The amount of effort a consumer puts into searching depends on a number of factors such as the market (how many competitors are there, and how great are differences between brands expected to be?), product characteristics (how important is this product? How complex is the product? How obvious are indications of quality?), consumer characteristics (how interested is a consumer, generally, in analyzing product characteristics and making the best possible deal?), and situational characteristics (as previously discussed). Two interesting issues in decisions are:

Variety seeking (where consumers seek to try new brands not because these brands are expected to be better in any way, but rather because the consumer wants a change of pace, and Impulse purchasesunplanned buys. This represents a somewhat fuzzy group. For example, a shopper may plan to buy vegetables but only decide in the store to actually buy broccoli and corn. Alternatively, a person may buy an item which is currently on sale, or one that he or she remembers that is needed only once inside the store.

A number of factors involve consumer choices. In some cases, consumers will be more motivated. For example, one may be more careful choosing a gift for an in-law than when buying the same thing for one self. Some consumers are also more motivated to comparison shop for the best prices, while others are more convenience oriented. Personality impacts decisions. Some like variety more than others, and some are more receptive to stimulation and excitement in trying new stores. Perception influences decisions. Some people, for example, can taste the difference between generic and name brand foods while many cannot. Selective perception occurs when a person is paying attention only to information of interest. For example, when looking for a new car, the consumer may pay more attention to car ads than when this is not in the horizon. Some consumers are put off by perceived risk. Thus, many marketers offer a money back guarantee. Consumers will tend to change their behavior through learning e.g., they will avoid restaurants they have found to be crowded and will settle on brands that best meet their tastes. Consumers differ in the values they hold (e.g., some people are more committed to recycling than others who will not want to go through the hassle). We will consider the issue of lifestyle under segmentation.

CHAPTER-2 PROFILE OF STATE BANK

Overview History Competitors Strength & opportunities Different product

16

Recently, the senior management of the bank has been broadened considerably.

Overseas investors including GDRs with 19.78% stake as on September 06. Indian financial

Institutions held 12.3% while Indian public held just 8.2% of the stock. RBI is the monetary

Authority and having majority shareholding reflects conflict of interest. Now the government is

18

HISTORY

The origin of the state bank of India goes back to the first decade of the nineteenth century with the establishment of the Bank of Calcutta on 2june 1806.Three years later the bank received its charter and was re-designed as the Bank of Bengal (2January1809).A unique Institution, it was the first joint stock bank of British India sponsored by the Government of Bengal. The Bank of Bombay (15April1840) and the Bank of Madras (1July1843) followed the Bank of Bengal. These three banks remained at the apex of modern banking in India till their amalgamation as the Imperial bank of India on 27 January 1921.

Primarily Anglo-Indian creations, the three presidency banks came into existence either as a result of the compulsions of imperial finance or by the felt needs of local European

21

commerce and were not imposed from outside in an arbitrary manner to modernize India economy .their evolution was ,however ,shaped by ideas culled from similar development in Europe and England and was influenced by changes occurring in the structure of both the local trading environment and those in the relations of the Indian economy to the economy of Europe and the global economic frame work.

Group Photograph of Central Board (1921) Business

The three banks were governed by royal charters, which were revised from time to time. Each charter provided for a share capital, four-fifth of which were privately subscribed and

22

the rest owned by the provincial govt. the members of board of directors, which managed the affairs to each bank, were mostly proprietary directors representing the large European managing agency houses in India. The rest were govt. nominees, invariably civil servants, one of whom was elected as the president of the board.

The business of the banks was initially confined to discounting of bills of exchange or other negotiable private securities, keeping cash accounts and receiving deposits and issuing and circulating cash notes. Loans were restricted to rs. 1lakh and the period of Indian banking system in to the exciting field of national development.

Strength & opportunities

The growth of SBI in the coming years is likely to be fueled by the following factor:

Continued effort to increase low cash deposit would ensure improvement in NIMs & hence earning.

Growing retail & SMEs thrust would lead to higher growth.

Strong economic growth would generate higher demand for funds pursuant to higher corporate demand for credit on account of capacity expansion..

Weakness/ Threats:
The risks that could ensue to SBI in time to come are as under:

SBI is currently operating at a lowest CAR. Insufficient capital may restrict the growth prospects of the bank going forward.

Stiff competition, especially in the retail segment, could impact retail growth of SBI and

26

hence slowdown in earnings growth.

Contribution of retail credit to total bank credit stood at 26%. Significant thrust on growing retail book poses higher credit risk to the bank.

Delay in technology up gradation could result in loss of market shares.

2008-2009

During the year, India continued to remain the second fastest growing economy in the world, because of large domestic demand, especially from rural India, Govt. investments, a stable financial services sector, Fall in inflation and prompt coordinated policy action on multiple fronts. This is despite the fact that the scenario of global economy

54

during the year gone by was one of the most challenging. Its effects are not going to be completely wiped out even in the current year.

Its impact on India, however notwithstanding todays globalised world, has not been very severe, though it did somewhat affect industrial production, GDP growth and exports. On the macro-economic front, we believe that the worst is over. The Indian economy is showing signs of revival with growth reviving across sectors like cement, steel, auto, telecom, banking and FMCG. Further, demand from the rural sector which was the mainstay of the economy last year is expected to continue to propel growth in the current year. With a new, stable Government in place, our expectation for the GDP growth in 2009-10 is in excess of 7%. Even in this slowdown, both global and domestic, your Bank has turned in a brilliant performance with a splendid growth of Rs. 3,30,404 crores in total business, impressive rise in profits and containment of NPAs. At the same time, your Bank continued to be on the growth trajectory during FY-09 in respect of branch expansion with as many as 807 new branches being opened, a majority of which (481) were in rural And semi-urban areas. The Bank also increased its ATM network by An impressive 44% to 8581 by the end of FY-09. Another important milestone achieved by your Bank during the year was the extension Of coverage under the Core Banking Platform to cover all its 11448 Branches. This is one of the largest core banking networks in the world and growing, and is no small achievement. Another significant event during the year was acquisition of State Bank of Saurashtra, a wholly owned Associate of your Bank, by your Bank. You will be happy to note that your Bank showed an impressive growth of 35.55% in Net Profit from Rs.6, 729 crores in FY-08 to Rs. 9,121 crores in FY-09. Operating Profits too posted a smart growth of 36.68% to Rs. 17,915 crores in FY-09 on the back of a healthy increase of 22.63% in Net Interest income to Rs.20, 873 crores in FY-09, driven by growth in advances and increase in yields as also an increase of 45.96% to Rs.12,691 crores in other income.

Notwithstanding the economic slowdown evidenced in the FY-09, your Bank registered an impressive increase in interest income which rose by 30.31% as also a significant increase in core fee income which showed a growth of 28.7%. Even though operating expenses rose by 24.11%, attributable primarily to increase in staff costs on account of additional provisions for pension and wage revision and recruitment of additional staff during the year; cost to income

55

ratio was brought down significantly (2.41%) from 49.03% in FY-08 to 46.62% in FY-09. Despite pressure on interest spreads and intense competition, your Bank could still record a Net Interest margin (NIM) of 2.93% in FY-09. During the year 2008-09, your Bank saw excellent growth in all businesses/market segments in which it operates. A significant feature during the year was your Banks high growth in both Advances and Deposits which exceeded the industry average, leading to a significant increase in its market share.

Deposits of your Bank grew by 38.08% in 2008-09 against Other Scheduled Commercial Banks (OSCB) growth of 16.55%, leading to a spurt in its market share in deposits by 2.31% to 17.72% by March 2009. With continued focus on low cost CASA deposits which registered a growth of 23% during the year, your Banks market share in demand deposits also rose sharply by 3.67% to 17.53%. As a part of strategy, your Bank reduced its reliance on bulk deposits as a percentage of total deposits to 10.81% from 14.13% in FY-08. Similarly, the Banks advances portfolio witnessed a robust growth (30.17%) of Rs.1,25,735 crores. This growth of 30.17% in advances as against OSCB growth of 16.13% pushed up your Banks market share in advances by 0.83 % to 16.03% by the year end. The growth in advances was well rounded with every Segment (Large advances 47%, Mid Corporate advances 23%, SME advances 20%, Retail advances 18%, Agri. advances 19%, International advances 54%), contributing to the overall growth in advances. Retail lending continued to occupy centre stage with a growth in Education Loans (50%), Auto Loans (36%) and Housing Loans (21%) during the year. This also helped improve market share from 17.48% to 19.74% in respect of Home Loans and from 10% to 12% in respect of Auto Loans for new vehicles. To offer timely help to SMEs, which were reeling under the impact of slow down in the economy particularly exports, your Bank launched two new schemes SME CARE and SME HELP offering the affected SMEs, finance on liberalized terms at a concessional rate of interest of 8%.

In advances to the Agriculture segment, your Bank continued to be above the 18% benchmark stipulated by RBI for the second time consecutively. It also surpassed the targets set by the Govt. of India in respect of credit flow by way of fresh disbursements as also the number of new farmers financed. In pursuit of its desire to be the Banker to every Indian, your Bank has gone in for aggressive expansion in the number of Customer Service Points/BCs/BFs to 17,979which now cater to 52,782 previously un-banked villages, with plans to cover additional 50,000 unbanked villages in the current year. Your Bank is firm in its resolve to achieve total financial inclusion

56

through the use of the latest and best technology. As at the end of 2008-09, as many as 23.61 lakh Smart Cards, which work on biometric validation of the customers, had been issued. In the international arena too, your Bank, despite the global meltdown, achieved a significant growth of 17.7% (in USD terms) in credit to USD 17.07 billion and continued to focus on its core strategy of Capturing India related business in high potential countries. While two of the Banks subsidiaries in Mauritius were merged during the Year to create a new entity called SBI (Mauritius) Ltd., your Bank along with its subsidiaries and Joint Ventures abroad opened 9 new Offices, including full-fledged retail operations in Singapore, taking the total network of overseas offices to 92 spread over 32 countries. Amidst turmoil in global markets, your Banks foreign offices maintained a comfortable liquidity position and could raise US $ 686 million under Banks Medium Term Notes (MTNs) programme and bilateral loans.

Another noteworthy feature of your Banks performance during the year 2008-09 has been in the area of controlling NPAs. While Gross NPAs declined marginally to 2.84% in FY-09 from 3.04% in FY-08, Net NPA level too was practically stable at 1.76% as against 1.78% in FY-08. Similarly, your Banks Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) in terms of prescriptions of BASEL-II increased to 14.25% in FY-09. This healthy ratio not only meets the requirements of the regulators worldwide but is also comparable to the best banks globally. You will be happy to know that the performance of the Associates of your Bank during FY-09 has also been noteworthy with an increase of 24.7% in net profit to Rs.2774 crores and 18.95% in total assets. The non-banking subsidiaries, too, put up a good show with consolidation of their position/ranking in their space in the financial services arena. Your Bank embarked on several new business initiatives during the last two years which have started bearing fruit? During the year

You can then decide from margin money schemes, advance EMI's schemes and deposit payment schemes. Usually margin money schemes offer the best terms, but at the end of the day, effective interest rate of the loan is what essentially matters. This method provides a common podium for assessment of different schemes by discounting on the basis of cash flows.

How much loan can I get?


The amount of the loan depends upon: 1. The cost of the vehicle. 2. The type (standard/premium). 3. The percentage financing offered. If you are buying a new car, you can get up to 90% financing but some banks have a limit beyond which they do not offer loans. Also different banks have different terms for different models (standard/premium, new/old) The percentage of finance the banks give on cars is also determined on the basis of second-hand market value of that particular car. This is for cases, if default by any chance, the banks can get a higher resale value for the car. This makes the banks comfy enough to give higher percentage finance.

What documents do I need to establish proof of income?


For income proof, most banks look at your IT returns for the last two years and also at the nature of income. However some banks do not consider speculative income - from the stock market, rental or agricultural income. Some banks discount such income by up to 50% in their workings.

Is it necessary to have an account with the bank from which you take a loan?
There is no such compulsion for you to have an account with the bank. Normally banks have no problem in giving auto loans to people who do not have an account with them. However there may be certain privileges you may enjoy with having an account of the same bank you take a loan from

Is it better to go to my current bank for loans?


Well if you have a good repayment record for an earlier transaction, YES! You are also most likely to get a lower lending rate and your process is sure to move faster. However, do check out some other offers from other banks as well, before taking a final decision.

73

Is credit profile important?


To banks, your credit profile is the most important factor they will consider before funding you. Your credit profile tells banks if one is able to and intend to pay back the loan.

What are the detailed components of my credit profile?


The components of credit profile are age, profession/occupation, income/financials, previous credit history etc

What can I do if my credit profile does not match the banks requirements?
If your credit profile does not match the banks requirement you can reinforce it by bringing in a co-applicant/guarantor who would be able to match the requirement

Can I get auto loan without the submission of income documents?


Yes you can, under the No Income Proof scheme offered by some banks.

Can I increase the amount of loan that I can take and how?
Yes, you can. You can increase the amount of loan sanctioned by clubbing your spouse's income. The spouse then becomes the co-applicant

Do I need a guarantor and who all qualifies as one?


Yes, you need a guarantor. The guarantor could be your father, mother, son, daughter, husband, brother, sister, son's wife etc et cetera. However for consideration of these relatives as guarantors for the loan, they should comply with the age and other such norms of the company

What is the extent of liability of a co-applicant and the guarantor?


A co-applicant has as much responsibility as the primary applicant and is equally liable to the banks from which the loan is taken. The guarantor however, promises to pay the bank in case the applicant(s) default on the payment. Both the co-applicant and the guarantor are liable for re-payment and the banks have the right to collect from either or them.

Is EMI a proper measure for comparing the deals of various players?


Not really. There are other charges like processing fees, advance EMI's, other up-front

74

payments (stamp charges), registration charges, insurance which need to be factored in before comparing the various deals.

How is annual reducing balance different from monthly reducing balance?


In an annual reducing basis, the outstanding principal gets adjusted once a year while in the monthly reducing balance; the principal gets adjusted on a monthly basis. Therefore, more of your principal gets repaid in monthly reducing basis than in annual basis. However, some banks, calculate EMI's on a daily or a quarterly basis too.

Floating rate of interest or a fixed rate of interest?


A loan taken on floating rate of interest is a better option when the interest rates are falling, but when the interest rates are rising, opt for a fixed rate loan. Also if you go for a fixed rate loan, you will know in advance what your EMI's will be like and this will help you in your financial budgeting. If you choose a floating rate, you may not be able to budget properly. So do the math and choose wisely.

What is Flat interest rate and Reducing Balance interest rate?


Suppose you have taken a loan of Rs.10 lac at 5% interest. You repay Rs.50,000 in the first installment. If the 5% interest continues to be applicable on Rs.10 lac after your first repayment, you are paying a Flat Interest Rate. But, if 5% interest is applicable now on Rs.9.50 lac, you are paying a Reduced Balance Interest Rate

Can

pay

off

my

car

loan

before

the

tenure

is

up?

Yes you can pay-off your car loan before the tenure is up by pre-paying your loan amount. But there may be certain rules regarding the pre-payment that your bank may have. Also you may have to pay a small penalty, normally, a percentage of the loan amount that remains outstanding. Some banks however do not penalize you if you decide to pre-pay. Take this aspect into consideration when you choose a bank to take loans from because if later on, you can get a loan at a lower rate of interest, this penalty could compensate whatever you could save through the interest rate differential.
