2.INDUSTRY PROFILE
Overview
Banking in India has a long and elaborate history of more than 200 years. The beginning of
this industry can be traced back to 1786, when the countrys first bank, Bank of Bengal, was
established. But the industry changed rapidly and drastically, after the nationalization of
banks in 1969. As a result, the public sector banks began experiencing numerous positive
changes and enormous growth. Then came the much-talked-about liberalization and
economic reforms that allowed banks to explore new business opportunities and not just
remain constrained to generating revenues from mere borrowing and lending. This provided
the Indian banking scenario a remarkable facelift that only continues to get better with time.
However, even today, despite the foray of foreign banks in the country, nationalized banks
continue to be biggest lenders in the country. This is primarily due to the size of the banks
and the penetration of the networks.
Nature of the Industry
Banks safeguard money and valuables and provide loans, credit, and payment services, such
as checking accounts, money orders, and cashiers checks. Banks also may offer investment
and insurance products, which they were once prohibited from selling. As a variety of models
for cooperation and integration among finance industries have emerged, some of the
traditional distinctions between banks, insurance companies, and securities firms have
diminished. In spite of these changes, banks continue to maintain and perform their primary
roleaccepting deposits and lending funds from these deposits.
There are several types of banks, which differ in the number of services they provide and the
clientele they serve. Although some of the differences between these types of banks have
pg. 8

lessened as they begin to expand the range of products and services they offer, there are still
key distinguishing traits. Commercial banks, which dominate this industry, offer a full range
of services for individuals, businesses, and governments. These banks come in a wide range
of sizes, from large global banks to regional and community banks. Global banks are
involved in international lending and foreign currency trading, in addition to the more typical
banking services. Regional banks have numerous branches and automated teller machine
(ATM) locations throughout a multi-state area that provide banking services to individuals.
Banks have become more oriented toward marketing and sales. As a result, employees need
to know about all types of products and services offered by banks. Community banks are
based locally and offer more personal attention, which many individuals and small businesses
prefer. In recent years, online bankswhich provide all services entirely over the Internet
have entered the market, with some success. However, many traditional banks have also
expanded to offer online banking, and some formerly Internet-only banks are opting to open
branches.
Savings banks and savings and loan associations, sometimes called thrift institutions, are the
second largest group of depository institutions. They were first established as communitybased institutions to finance mortgages for people to buy homes and still cater mostly to the
savings and lending needs of individuals.
Credit unions are another kind of depository institution. Most credit unions are formed by
people with a common bond, such as those who work for the same company or belong to the
same labor union or church. Members pool their savings and, when they need money, they
may borrow from the credit union, often at a lower interest rate than that demanded by other
financial institutions.

pg. 9

Federal Reserve banks are Government agencies that perform many financial services for the
Government. Their chief responsibilities are to regulate the banking industry and to help
implement our Nations monetary policy so our economy can run more efficiently by
controlling the Nations money supplythe total quantity of money in the country, including
cash and bank deposits. For example, during slower periods of economic activity, the Federal
Reserve may purchase government securities from commercial banks, giving them more
money to lend, thus expanding the economy. Federal Reserve banks also perform a variety of
services for other banks. For example, they may make emergency loans to banks that are
short of cash, and clear checks that are drawn and paid out by different banks.
Interest on loans is the principal source of revenue for most banks, making their various
lending departments critical to their success. The commercial lending department loans
money to companies to start or expand a business or to purchase inventory and capital
equipment. The consumer lending department handles student loans, credit cards, and loans
for home improvements, debt consolidation, and automobile purchases. Finally, the mortgage
lending department loans money to individuals and businesses to purchase real estate.
The money to lend comes primarily from deposits in checking and savings accounts,
certificates of deposit, money market accounts, and other deposit accounts that consumers
and businesses set up with the bank. These deposits often earn interest for the owner, and
accounts that offer checking provide an easy method for making payments safely without
using cash. Deposits in many banks are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation, which ensures that depositors will get their money back, up to a stated limit, if a
bank should fail.
Technology is having a major impact on the banking industry. For example, many routine
bank services that once required a teller, such as making a withdrawal or deposit, are now

pg. 10

available through ATMs that allow people to access their accounts 24 hours a day. Also,
direct deposit allows companies and governments to electronically transfer payments into
various accounts. Further, debit cards, which may also used as ATM cards, instantaneously
deduct money from an account when the card is swiped across a machine at a stores cash
register. Electronic banking by phone or computer allows customers to pay bills and transfer
money from one account to another. Through these channels, bank customers can also access
information such as account balances and statement history. Some banks have begun offering
online account aggregation, which makes available in one place detailed and up-to date
information on a customers accounts held at various institutions.
Advancements in technology have also led to improvements in the ways in which banks
process information. Use of check imaging, which allows banks to store photographed checks
on the computer, is one such example that has been implemented by some banks. Other types
of technology have greatly impacted the lending side of banking. For example, the
availability and growing use of credit scoring software allows loans to be approved in
minutes, rather than days, making lending departments more efficient.
Other fundamental changes are occurring in the industry as banks diversify their services to
become more competitive. Many banks now offer their customers financial planning and
asset management services, as well as brokerage and insurance services, often through a
subsidiary or third party. Others are beginning to provide investment banking services that
help companies and governments raise money through the issuance of stocks and bonds, also
usually through a subsidiary. As banks respond to deregulation and as competition in this
sector grows, the nature of the banking industry will continue to undergo significant change.

pg. 11

Structure
The Indian banking system can be classified into nationalized banks, private banks and
specialized banking institutions. The industry is highly fragmented with 30 banking units
contributing to almost 50% of deposits and 60% of advances. The Reserve Bank of India is
the foremost monitoring body in the Indian Financial sector. It is a centralized body that
monitors discrepancies and shortcomings in the system.
Industry estimates indicate that out of 274 commercial banks operating in the country, 223
banks are in the public sector and 51 are in the private sector. These private sector banks
include 24 foreign banks that have begun their operations here. The specialized banking
institutions that include cooperatives, rural banks, etc. form a part of the nationalized banks
category.

Origin of the word


The name bank derives from the Italian word banco "desk/bench", used during the
Renaissance by Florentine bankers, who used to make their transactions above a desk covered
by a green tablecloth. However, traces of banking activity can found even in ancient times. In
fact, the word traces its origins back to the Ancient Roman Empire, where moneylenders
would set up their stalls in the middle of enclosed courtyards called macella on a long bench
called a bancu, from which the words banco and bank are derived. As a moneychanger, the

pg. 12

merchant at the bancu did not so much invest money as merely convert the foreign currency
into the only legal tender in Rome- that of the Imperial Mint.
Scope
The Banking sector is considered the most lucrative option in todays job market. In the
industry, a position in Treasury or Forex is considered right on top and this is followed by
careers in Private Banking, Investment Banking and Retail Banking. One could work in a
variety of areas in banking industry including Recurring Deposit account, banking officer,
probationary officer, loan officer, assessor, personal loan officer, home loan officer, home
loan agent, loan manager, mortgage loan underwriter, loan processing officer, accountant,
product marketing and sales executive, and customer service executive among others.
In the Financial Services, some of the important jobs include that of a stockbroker who is
essentially a person who buys and sells securities on behalf of individuals and institutions for
some commission. While some brokers like to practice with individual clients others work for
institutions. Brokers who work for institutional investors are often called securities traders.
Many prefer to work as dealers, advisors and securities analysts. Security analysts are those
who advise companies on floatations of shares as they are expected to have sound
knowledge of capital markets.
Investment analysts are the backbone of the financial services sector. They study the financial
reports of companies, assess various statistical information, profitability projections, compare
financial results, survey the industry as a whole and on the basis of the available information,
and finally conclude to a decision. Equity Analysts do jobs similar to investment analysts and
research the equity markets and make predictions.

Indian Banking & Insurance Industry


Banking business has a history of over 200 years. From the times of the Bank of Bengal
(1806) the sector has been witnessing qualitative and quantitative changes. Main players
during the pre-independence period were Credit Lyonnais, Allahabad Bank, Punjab
National Bank and Bank of India. With 1935 regulation the Reserve Bank of India was
proclaimed the Central Bank of India and was vested with controlling powers over the
commercial bank.

With economic liberalization measures many private and foreign banking companies were
allowed to operate in the country. Favorable economic climate and a variety of other factors
such as demand for wide range of financial products from various sections of the society led
to mutually beneficial growth to the banking sector and economic growth process. This was
coincided by technology development in the banking operations. Today most of the Indian
cities have networked banking facility as well as Internet banking facility.

pg. 14

Scope of Banking & Insurance Sectors in India


The financial sector in India has become stronger in terms of capital and the number of
customers. Exposure to worldwide competition and deregulation in Indian financial sector
has led to the emergence of better quality products and services. Reforms have changed
the face of Indian banking and finance. The banking sector has improved manifolds in
terms of capital adequacy, asset classification, profitability, income recognition,
provisioning, exposure limits, investment fluctuation reserve, risk management, etc.

pg. 15

Diversifying into investment banking, insurance, credit cards, depository services, mortgage
financing, securitization has increased revenues. As large number of players in various
fields enters the market, competition would be intensified by mutual funds, Non Banking
Finance Corporations (NBFCs), post offices, etc. from both domestic and foreign players.
All this would lead to increased sophistication and technology in the sector. Corporate
governance would come into the picture and other financial institutions would have to reach
global standards. Also the limit for FDI in private banks is increased to 74% and the limit
for FII is 49%. There are many challenges ahead for the banking sector such as technology,
consumer satisfaction, corporate governance, risk management, etc. and they are redefining
their priorities, which are now focused on cost reduction, product differentiation and
customer centric services. Some of the major players in this sector are HDFC, ICICI,
HSBC, State Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, IngVysya, ABNAmro Bank, Centurion
Bank, City Bank, etc.
The insurance sector has opened up for private insurance companies with the enactment of
IRDA Act, 1999. A large number of companies are competing under both life and general
Insurance. The FDI cap/equity in this sector is 26% and the proposals have to be cleared by
Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) established to protect the interest
of holder of Insurance policy and act as a regulator and facilitator in the industry. Some of
the major players in this sector are LIC, Max New York Life Insurance, Bajaj Allianz,
ICICI Prudential, HDFC Standard Life, Metlife Insurance, Birla Sun Life Insurance, etc.
Various types of policies and instruments are coming up in the market to attract more
customers. Most of the population of India is not insured, hence there is a lot of scope in

pg. 16

this sector and a number of companies are planning to enter the sector.
Capital markets have a long history of over 100 years in India. Bombay Stock Exchange
came into existence more than a hundred years ago to remove direct government control.
Indian companies are now allowed to raise capital from abroad and Foreign Institutional
Investors are allowed to enter the market due to an important policy initiative in 1993. The
depository and share dematerialization has enhanced the performance of the capital market
reducing processing time and increasing returns. The major players are India Bulls
Securities, Kotak, and many more. Many new instruments have been introduced in the
market such as index futures, index options, derivatives, including futures and options. Also
commodities market is gaining pace. There is a huge potential available in the market and to
realize venture capitalists are coming up with lots of finance. To make use of the human
capital, technical skills, cost competitive workforce, research and entrepreneurship VCF and
VCCs are ready to invest in potentials.

For a stronger and resilient financial system, India needs to move beyond peripheral issues
and act maturely by increasing profitability and efficiency, providing better solutions to the
customers.

but As a leading bank in the banking industry Vijaya bank should not neglect the promotional
activities at all in its activity towards making business as promotional activity is necessary in
any business so that the society and customer would know about the benefits of the service
and that are influenced to buy.
