1. BANKING

Banking has become a part and parcel of our day-to-day life. Today, banks offer an easy access to a common man. They carry out variety of functions apart from their main functions of accepting deposits and lending. Banking is a service industry. Banks provide financial services to the people, business and industries. Merchant banking, money transfer, credit cards, ATMs are some of the important financial services provided by the modern banks. Without a sound and effective banking system in India it cannot have a healthy economy. The banking system of India should not only be hassle free but it should be able to meet new challenges posed by the technology and any other external and internal factors. For the past three decades India's banking system has several outstanding achievements to its credit. The most striking is its extensive reach. It is no longer confined to only metropolitans or cosmopolitans in India. In fact, Indian banking system has reached even to the remote corners of the country. This is one of the main reasons of India's growth process. Not long ago, an account holder had to wait for hours at the bank counters for getting a draft or for withdrawing his own money. Today, he has a choice. Gone are days when the most efficient bank transferred money from one branch to other in two days. Now it is simple as instant messaging or dial a pizza. Money has become the order of the day. The name Bank derives from the Italian word banco "desk/bench", used during the Renaissance by Florentines bankers, who used to make their transactions above a desk

covered by a green tablecloth. However, there are traces of banking activity 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 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.

MEANING OF BANKING
A Bank is a financial institution which accepts deposits from the public and lends the funds to the people or institution who need funds. It is like reservoir. It collects the savings of some people and gives this money to others who use them productively. In the process, the bank earns interest out of which it pays interest to the depositors.

DEFINITION OF BANKING
In India ³BANKING´ has been defined by a statute, viz., the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 (vide Section 5 b, c) as follows: ³Accepting, for the purpose of lending or investment, of deposits of money from the public, repayable on demand or otherwise, and withdrawal by cheque, draft, and order or otherwise´ (section 5 b) A banking company is ³a company which transacts the business of banking in India´ (section 5 c)

HISTORY OF BANKING
Banking in India originated in the first decade of 18th century. The first banks were The General Bank of India, which started in 1786, and Bank of Hindustan, both of which are now defunct. The oldest bank in existence in India is the State Bank of India, which originated in the "The Bank of Bengal" in Calcutta in June 1806. This was one of the three presidency banks, the other two being the Bank of Bombay and the Bank of Madras. The presidency banks were established under charters from the British East India Company. They merged in 1925 to form the Imperial Bank of India, which, upon India's independence, became the State Bank of India. For many years the Presidency banks acted as quasi-central banks, as did their successors. The Reserve Bank of India formally took on the responsibility of regulating the Indian banking sector from 1935. After India's independence in 1947, the Reserve Bank was nationalized and given broader powers.

CURRENT SITUATION OF BANKING IN INDIA
Currently (2008), banking in India is generally fairly mature in terms of supply, product range and reach-even though reach in rural India still remains a challenge for the private sector and foreign banks. In terms of quality of assets and capital adequacy, Indian banks are considered to have clean, strong and transparent balance sheets relative to other banks in comparable economies in its region. The Reserve Bank of India is an autonomous body, with minimal pressure from the government. The stated policy of the Bank on the Indian Rupee is to manage volatility but without any fixed exchange rate-and this has mostly been true. With the growth in the Indian economy expected to be strong for quite some timeespecially in its services sector-the demand for banking services, especially retail banking, mortgages and investment services are expected to be strong. One may also expect M&As, takeovers, and asset sales. In March 2006, the Reserve Bank of India allowed Warburg Pincus to increase its stake in Kotak Mahindra Bank (a private sector bank) to 10%. This is the first time an investor has been allowed to hold more than 5% in a private sector bank since the RBI announced norms in 2005 that any stake exceeding 5% in the private sector banks would need to be vetted by them. Currently, India has 88 scheduled commercial banks (SCBs) - 28 public sector banks (that is with the Government of India holding a stake), 29 private banks (these do not have government stake; they may be publicly listed and traded on stock exchanges) and 31 foreign banks. They have a combined network of over 53,000 branches and 17,000 ATMs.

2. MOBILE BANKING

INTRODUCTION
The kind of banking and financial service that gives a real-time mobile access to customer on the move is called mobile banking the services being offered through mobile phone. Mobile banking to the banking activity that are carried out on mobile (cell) phones that is banking is enabled even while a person is on the move In modern times, information exchange takes place at great speed. The dependence of people on computing devices such as computers, cellular phone, pager, facsimile machine, e-mail and internet is growing at galloping rate. Such as growth has made the real time exchange of information a reality. At the same time it has also thrown challenges to modern enterprises. Which prompt them to act in a proactive manner so as to stay competitive in the business world. The constant innovation happening in the realm of electronic banking and financial services has contributed to a new development called µmobile banking¶ this may be attributed to the forth coming demand from the mobile workforce. The increasingly growing number of mobile workforce has really given a cutting edge to the progress of the electronic banking. The mobile banking refers to the facility allowed by certain banks in India whereby the mobile phone holder can undertake certain banking transaction through their mobile phones. This value added services has very little human interface and private banks like ICICI, HDFC etc. have started offering this service. The customer is required to type a text message on the mobile phone which travel through the server of the cell phone service provider to bank¶s internet service; information is retrieved and routed back the same way in 15-30 second. To avail the service, theclient has to fill up form at any of bank¶s branches and bank informs the cellular service provider to activate the module instantly. The information which includes checking of account balance, request for a Cheque book, stop payment instruction, changing primary operation account, request for current periods¶ account statement to the mailed and access summaries of last three transactions performed on the account.

The number of people using mobile banking services has increased. While the trend is growing, lack of awareness of services, apart from perceived security issues are inhibiting faster takeoff. ³-Dataquest. It was clear at the start itself that this would be a battle focused not on technology, but on the mindset of the target audience. Over two years after the launch of mobile banking services in the country, that bridge has been reached and many are beginning to walk those cautious steps across it. Yes, the usage of mobile banking services is increasing, and fast against dataquest¶s estimated user base of under 10,000 for mobile banking services in 2000, there are over 120,000 today who SMS from their banking. Even our survey despite targeting a respondent profile that would bring in more positive answers than negative (see methodology), threw up very low usage numbers. Also, e-commerce as a medium of purchasing and transacting has not really caught on, and the basket of mobile banking offerings is, in itself, very limited. The good news the technology backbone is in place, and getting better. There¶s CDMA, there¶s GSM. Forget their battles on the mobile telephony front from the consumer¶s point of view; he never had it so good. The recent price cuts are also likely to help, ³say banking experts, adding that this will lead to ³increasing willingness to move on to mobile, and therefore, to the value-added services that most operators offer today´ The Internet is revolutionizing the way the financial industry conducts business, empowering organization with new business model and new ways to interact with customers. The ability to perform banking transactions online banks and brokers who offer personalized services through their web portals. This increased competition is driving traditional financial institutions to find new ways to add value to their product and services, gain competitive advantage and increase customer loyalty while also attracting new, high-value client.

OBJECTIVES

3. CONSIDERATION WHEN IMPLEMENTING MOBILE BANKING
The creation of mobile services is more efficient and effective when financial institution enters in alliance with mobile operators. The appropriate choice for each player depends on their combined customer base and the share of market each one brings to the alliance. The choices are then if one bank should establish alliance with one or many mobile operator. The theories on the evolution of these types of alliances show that the most usal beginning is from one to one. However, the dominant strategy will converge in the long term to a many to many alliance model. For large bank the most convenient strategy is to begin with a closed system; an alliance with one telecommunication company and initially closed to user outside the combined customer base. This will allow the alliance to lock in big customers before other players begin to enter the market. At least one or two condition is needed to maintain the closed system working: a critical mass of customers, or strategic adventure in the operating area. Banks with not so large customer base or that do not want to risk being the first movers in a closed system, would prefer to implement open system alliance and try to capture a larger market share. The decision about the most appropriate alliance to chose will depend on the particular of the bank implementing the mobile services and the availability of appropriate partners for telecommunication operation. In the same way when choosing wireless platform the critical consideration are the connectivity with the back ±end system and the market several solutions in a short period of time. There are currently in the market several solution based upon different technology and budget requirements.

4. MARKETING FOR MOBILE BANKING
Mobile Banking is poised to become the big killer mobile application arena. However, banks going mobile the first time need to trend the path cautiously. The Biggest decision that banks need to make is the channel that they will support their services on. Mobile Banking through an SMS based service would require the lowest amount of effort, in terms of cost and time, but will not be able to support the full breath of transaction based services. However in market like India, where a bulk of the mobile population user¶s phones can only support SMS based services, this might be the only option left. On the other hand a market heavily segmented by the type and complexity of mobile phone using might be good place toroll of WAP based mobile applications. WAP based services can let go of the need to customized usability to the profile of each mobile phone. The trade off being that it cannot take advantage of the full breadth of features that a mobile phone might offer. Mobile application standalone clients bring-along the burden of supporting multiple mobile device profile. According to the Gartner group, a leading wireless computing consulting organization, mobile banking services will have to support a minimum of 50 different device profiles in the near future. However, currently the best user experience, depending on the capabilities of a mobile phone, is possible only by using a standalone client. Mobile banking has the potential to do the mobile phone, what E-Mail did to the internet mobile application based banking is poised to be a big M-Commerce features, and if south Korea¶s foray into mass mobile banking is any indication, mobile banking could well be the driving factor to increase saler of high and Mobile phone nevertheless bank¶s need to take a hard and deep look into the mobile usage patterns among their target customers and enables their mobile service on a technology with reaches out the majority of their customer.

5. GUIDELINES AND CONSIDERATION BANKS
Some guidelines and consideration banks need to follow implementing wireless banking are:

Application servers should be easy to install, configure and add new services.

Client application must be easy to install, customized, and add new handheld devices.

Integration with other servers and back end services must be easy to implement.

The advantages of using standard protocol are attainable mainly through open system.

For smaller financial institution, like credit unions, the outsourcing of the wireless services can solve most of the impediments they would face. Besides the lack of resources and expertise, other reasons for outsourcing are: Financial institution will not divert from it core business.

Improve the time to implement the services. Cost and budget can be predicated with more accuracy.

Wireless services will use the latest in technology.

Using mobile banking facility you can:

Check your balance Check on your last three transaction Request for a statement Request for a cheque book Enquire on a cheque status Instruct stop cheque payment. View fixed deposit detail...And much more.

You can also pay your utility bills using the bill pay facility all you to do is instruct us to pay your bills and the amount rates instantly deducted online from our account.

REGISTRATION OF MOBILE BANKING
It is usually required that the customer who register for internet banking also register for mobile banking. To register, you have to provide mobile number in the subscription page of mobile banking requests. Provide your number in the format country code number. To register and use the mobile banking service it is incumbent that the following requirements are:-

Essential Requirement

Registration for internet banking and mobile banking services. Available for the individual customer.

Need for owning a mobile phone; if ³WAP (wireless application protocol). Banking is to be availed; the mobile phone should be WAP enabled whose browser is capable of sending referrer URL.

SECURITY ISSUE
The security for the use of mobile banking is ensured by the use of ³password´. Password is nothing but the secret code of identification of a uses. The customer user is given a ³login ID´ and a ³password´ on the registration for internet banking. The login ID and the password need to be changed by the internet banking registration. In the case of WAP banking, one should use the same user login ID and transaction password with which access to the internet banking service is made. However, your user ID needs to be enabled by the bank for WAP banking on the basis of the application submitted for the same. This is essential for availing the WAP banking. In the case of SMS Banking, the bank will first enable the user ID for SMS facility on the basis of the Application for the same. Only then the customer can access the domain of the banking company. Accessing SMS banking through internet login password is not allowed. A customer can access SMS banking only through SMS password. Which is exclusive however, with internet login password, one can access the domain of the banking company through internet banking or WAP banking using the WAP enable mobile phone. For the first time, one can choose the SMS password only in the relevant domain of the bank by accessing through internet. Subsequently SMS password can be changed through an SMS on the mobile phone also.however; it is not possible to change the WAP Password separately. Change of WAP password happens automatically with the change in internet login password. Registration is required for mobile banking when the cell. Number is changed from the one already registered. Before the change of the cell number, it is possible for the customer to withdraw from SMS Banking, using the necessary option. The customer need to take up with the bank, after getting the new cell number, duly informing the internet banking ID and the new cell number. Bank will accordingly register the new cell number. Currently, there is not a security standard; companies have implemented many solutions even thought the trend is to use smart cards as the utmost security technology. The solutions currently implemented are the following:

Limit in the type of transaction in order to reduce the risk of the cardholder. For example, funds transfer to third parties.

Secure network architecture. The more common security used is PKI (public key infrastructure) an encryption used for PDA¶s and smart phones, PKI consist of two keys, a public key and a private key, used to authenticated the user and encrypt the data.

Smart cards as a digital identification and mobile phone (card reader are the highest technology in the terms of security).

6. SERVICES
The services that mobile banking can offer are the following:  Account balance enquiry.  Account statement enquiry.  Cheque status enquiry.  Cheque book requests.  Fund transfer between accounts.  Credit/debit alert.  Minimum balance alerts.  Bill payment alerts.  Recent transaction history request.  Information request like internet rates exchange rates. One way to classify this service depending on the originator of a service session is the push/pull nature. µPush¶ is when the bank sends out information based upon an agreed set of rules, for example your banks send out an alert when your account balance goes below a thousand level.´ pull´ when the customer explicitly request a service or information from the bank so a request for your last five transaction statement is a pull based offering. The other way to categorize the mobile banking services by the nature of the service, gives us two kind of services:- Transaction based on enquiry based so a request for your bank statement is an enquiry based service and a request for your fund¶s transfer to some other account is a transaction based services transaction based services are also

differentiated from enquiry based services in the sence that they require additional security across the channel from the mobile phone to the banks date servers. Based upon the obove classifications are arrive at the following services listed below:Table:-2 Classification of services Push Based Pull based o Fund Transfer Transaction Based o Bill Payment o Other Financial

Services like share trading o Credit / Debit Alerts nqui Expiry Based o Minimum Alerts o Bill payment alerts o Account Balance

Balance enquiry o Account enquiry o Cheque Status enquiry o Cheque book request o Recent history transaction statement

DEVICES
Mobile phone and palm pilot are the most important wireless devices. Even though, there is solution for both type of devices and some banks use both mechanisms to deliver their service, mobile phone has more potentially due to its rate of penetration especially countries. The following table presents the technology and advantages and disadvantages of both:

7. ADVANTAGES OF MOBILE BANKING

For example an average teller or phone transaction costs about $2.36 each whereas an electronic transaction costs only about $0.10 each additionally this new channel gives the bank ability to cross-sell, up-sell their other complex banking products and services such as vehicle loans, credit each etc. For service providers, mobile banking offers the next surest way to achieve growth.

According to the release, ICICI Bank, in a partnership with reliance, on July 21 launched an interactive mobile banking service in India. Using their reliance India mobile handsets, ICICI Bank customers can access several banking services; including viewing their account balance, getting mini statements and making request for check books. Customers can also view presented bills and make payments via a direct debit to their bank accounts. There is no charge for the services.

However, the service also enables a customer to locate an ATM or bank branch. With this option, the customer is connected directly to the bank and the result is displayed instantly on the handset.

COMPARING WITH OTHER BANK FOR MOBILE BANKING
Actually, I am doing project on mobile banking from ICICI BANK. This bank had started mobile banking in the year 2001. From 2001 to 2007 this bank started making profit continuously.

I want to compare the ICICI BANK with other leading bank for example: HDFC, HSBC etc. HDFC was the first bank to start a mobile banking in India for example: RIM has included ICICI BANK along with HDFC bank for mobile banking through RWORLD. Since I have an HDFC BANK a/c, I registered for this service with HDFC BANK and can check my account details and carry out select transaction using R-WORLD. However, much to my surprise there seems to be no password/PIN security for accessing to my bank account! That means whoever has even brief access to my mobile has access to my bank account! So if it ever stolen. Or even in cases to the account and could even carry out transaction!!!

It¶s really surprising that they have overlooked this very important security loophole!

Is this the same for people who have registered with ICICI? Anybody concerned about this?

13. RELIANCE INFOCOM, INDIA
When reliance infocomm, India rolled out its CDMA network (at the time the mobile market in India was still in its infancy, and data services were almost never heard off) it made sure that all handsets supported java. The reliance application platform, also known as R- world brought java compatibility even to the lower end phones.

Reliance used a novel way to overcome the memory limitation of lower end mobile phones, which hampered deploying of multiple standalone. J2ME based clients. Instead of storing application statically on their cell phones, users access a single menu based application called R- world, which connects them menu based user interface, mobile users select the application which they want to run and download them over the air to their cell phone. These applications are then executed locally on the mobile.

From mid 2004 reliance tied up with two of the popular private sector banks HDFC and ICICI to provide a host of their enquiry and transaction based mobile banking services through its R-world environment.

14. CONCLUSION

By completing this project, I came into conclusion that mobile banking is the product. Mobile banking refers to the facility allowed by certain banks in India. Where by the mobile phone holder can take certain banking transaction through mobile phone. By coming of mobile banking it is easy for customer to find out the information from the account in the bank. I hope anybody who will go through this project would be convinced and satisfied with the work.

The area of my project is limited to i.e. ICICI BANK. The study is on mobile banking which is recently new service offered by bank to the customer.
