CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION 1.1 INTRODUCTION TO THE CONCEPT OF THE STUDY Banks play a predominant role in building the economy of an individual as well as nation. The importance for service sectors has been growing world wide. In line with the global trend, in the Indian context also, the service sectors have been gaining prominence since the introduction of New Economic Reforms in 1991. Of the various service sector activities, the banking services in India has greater importance as it forms the lifeline of economic activity of both rural and urban areas. However, the liberalization process has evoked skepticism on the performance of the banks on the part of the planners, policy makers and small savers, due to the increased competition faced by these institutions from the public and private domestic banks and the foreign bank. Banking services offered to the general public. Retail lending services are a group of financial services that includes installment loans, residential mortgages, equity credit loans, deposit services, and individual retirement accounts. Retail lending includes loans for automobile purchases, home purchases, medical care, home repair, vacations, and other consumer uses. In contrast with Wholesale Banking or corporate banking, retail banking is a high volume business with many service providers competing for market share. Some retail banking services, for example, credit cards, are among the most profitable services offered by financial institutions. Retail lending has taken a prominent role in the lending activities of banks, as the availability of credit and the number of products offered for retail lending have grown. Retail lending may take the form of installment loans, which must be paid off little by little over the course of years, or non-installment loans, which are paid off in one lump sum.

1.2 THEORITICAL BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Retail lending in India is a new phenomenon. It has always been prevalent in India in various forms. For the last few years it has become synonymous with mainstream banking for many banks. The typical products offered in the Indian retail banking segment are housing loans, consumption loans for purchase of durables, auto loans, credit cards and educational loans. The loans are marketed under attractive brand names to differentiate the products offered by different banks. As the Report on Trend and Progress of India, 2009-010has shown that the loan values of these retail typically range between Rs.50, 000 to Rs.150000 lakh. The loans



are generally for duration of five to seven years with housing loans granted for a longer duration of 15 years. In recent past retail lending has turned out to be a key profit driver for banks with retail portfolio constituting 21.5 per cent of total outstanding advances as on March 2004. `Retail Lending¶, Bank¶s retail advances increased by 39 per cent at March 31, 2010, which constituted 65 per cent of advances. loan. Retail lending ,a departure from conventional advance ,offer high yield ,quicker return ,the possibility of less incidence of the account going bad or non performing if it is monitored on an ongoing basis.Monitoring of the account is easier in retail lending segment when compared to the conventional advances ,for the reason the instalment and reapayment schedule have to be monitored in respect of retail lending. The novel retail lending products are introduced by the banks to compete effictiveley in the market ,the products which are prevalent in the bank of baroda are the following.

Housing Loans Vehicle Loans (two wheelers and four wheelers) Personal loans Mortgage loans Pension loans

MARGIN The contribution brought in by the borrowers is termed as margin.Margin requirements from bank to bank. INTEREST The rate of intrest has been deregulated by the apex monetary authority which suggest the rate of intrest offered by one bank for a retail lending scheme may not match with the one offered by the other bank .The rate of intrest is decided by the individual bank. In the backdrop of increased focus on retail strategy and volatility of the financial markets, the Indian banks need to be more cautious while making disbursements in the retail sector. They would do well to closely monitor their personal loan portfolios.
