INDUSTRY PROFILE
WHAT IS BANKING?

Bank

is

business

that

provides

financial

services

usually

for

profit.

Traditional banking Services include receiving deposits of money, lending money and
processing transactions. A commercial bank accepts deposits from customers and in turn
makes loans based on those deposits. Some banks (called Banks of issue) issue banknotes as
legal tender. Many banks offer ancillary financial services to make additional profit; for
example: selling insurance products.

Banking is the business of providing financial services to consumers and businesses. The
basic services a bank provides are checking accounts, which can be used like money to make
payments and purchase goods and services; savings accounts and time deposits that can be
used to save money for future use; loans that consumers and businesses can use to purchase
goods and services; and basic cash management services such as check cashing and foreign
currency exchange. Four types of banks specialize in offering these basic banking services:
commercial banks, savings and loan associations, savings banks, and credit unions. A broader
definition of a bank is any financial institution that receives, collects, transfers, pays,
exchanges, lends, invests, or safeguards money for its customers.

This broader definition includes many other financial institutions that are not usually thought
of as banks but which nevertheless provide one or more of these broadly defined banking
services. These institutions include finance companies, investment companies, investment
banks, insurance companies, pension funds, security brokers and dealers, mortgage
companies and real estate investment trusts. This article, however, focuses on the narrower
definition of a bank and the services provided by banks in Canada and the United States. (For
information on other financial institutions, see Insurance; Investment Banking; and Trust
Companies.) Banking services are extremely important in a free market economy such as that
found in Canada and the United States. Banking services serve two primary purposes. First,
by supplying customers with the basic mediums-of-exchange (cash, checking accounts, and
credit cards), banks play a key role in the way goods and services are purchased.

Second, by accepting money deposits from savers and then lending the money to borrowers,
banks encourage the flow of money to productive use and investments. This in turn allows
the economy to grow. Without this flow, savings would sit idle in someones safe or pocket,
money would not be available to borrow, people would not be able to purchase cars or
houses, and businesses would not be able to build the new factories the economy needs to
produce more goods and grow. Enabling the flow of money from savers to investors is called
financial intermediation, and it is extremely important to a free market economy.
1.2 STRUCTURE OF INDIAN BANKING INDUSTRY

Organized banking was active in India since the establishment of the General Bank of India
in 1786. After independence, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) was established as the central
bank and in 1955, the Imperial Bank of India, the biggest bank at the time, was taken over by
the government to form state-owned State Bank of India (SBI). RBI had undertaken an
exercise to merge weak banks to strong banks and the total number of banks thus reduced
from 566 in 1951 to 85 in 1969.

With the objective of reaching out to masses and meeting the credit needs of all sections of
people, the government nationalized 14 large banks in 1969 followed by another 6 banks in
1980. This period saw enormous growth in the number of branches and the banks branch
network became wide enough to reach the weakest sections of the society in a vast country
like India. Sibs network of 9033 domestic branches and 48 overseas offices is considered to
be one of the largest for any bank in the world.

The economic reforms unleashed by the government in early nineties included banking sector
too, to a significant extent. Entry of new private sector banks was permitted under specific
guidelines issued by RBI. A number of liberalization and de-regulation measures aimed at
consolidation, efficiency, productivity, asset quality, capital adequacy and profitability have
been introduced by the RBI to bring Indian banks in line with International best practices.
With a view to giving the state-owned banks operational flexibility and functional autonomy,
partial privatization has been authorized as a first step, enabling them to dilute the stake of
the government to 51 per cent. The government further proposed, in the Union Budget for the
financial year 2000-01, to reduce its holding in nationalized banks to a minimum of 33 per
cent on a case by case basis.
The banking system can be broadly classified as organized and unorganized banking system.
The unorganized banking system comprises of moneylenders, indigenous bankers, lending
pawnbrokers, landlords, traders, etc. Whereas the organized banking system comprises of
Scheduled Banks and Non-Scheduled Banks that are permitted by RBI to undertake banking
business.
The Indian Banking Industry can be broadly classified into:
A. Public Sector Banks
B. Old and New Private Sector Banks
8

C. Foreign Banks
D. Co-operative Banks

A. Public Sector Banks

Public sector banks are banks where in the government has a holding of 100%.This been a
situation prior to liberalization. The stake has fallen because of a public issue in the post
liberalization period. Some of the other leading banks in this segment have also proposed to
come out with an equity issue to raise further capital. The government is proposing to bring
out a bill wherein its share in all these banks would stand reduced to 33% from the current
levels

The public sector banks largely dominate the Indian Banking industry. These banks till the
early 90s were involved in the traditional banking business of deposits and credit lending.
The public sector banks have a strong distribution network all over the country. But the
strength of the earlier periods has now become a concern for these banks. As compared to
the tech-equipped distribution network of the new private sector banks and the foreign
banks, these banks have found it difficult to upgrade them on the technology front. These
banks are also facing the problem of surplus manpower. Most of these banks are now
coming out with a VRS to bring down their number of employees and improve the
efficiency ratios.

The public sector banks still control a major share in the banking operations of the country.
Their inefficiencies have been exposed only when the market was thrown open for
competition and new players started eating up their share. But given their size and the
strong network, most of these banks can change their perception. The recent thrust on
reduction of government stake; VRS, NPA settlement schemes etc have been some of the
steps in this direction. Since the growth of the economy is largely dependent on the
performance of these banks, even with the growth of new private and foreign players, these
banks will have an important role to play. Some of the players here are State Bank of India
and its associates, Bank of Baroda, Corporation Bank, Punjab National Bank, Union Bank
of India, etc.

B. Old and New Private Sector Banks


Private Sector Banks-Old

These banks existed prior to the promulgation of Banking Nationalization Act but were not
nationalized due to their smaller size and regional focus. Most of these banks continue to
have a regional focus and are relatively smaller in size. A large number of these banks are
basically from the south. Being small in size, these banks focus on service and technology
and thus face competition from new private and foreign banks. Most of these banks are
trying to increase their presence nationwide and are planning to enter other business areas
like insurance.

The old private sector banks have performed reasonably well during the FY2000. As these
banks were facing stiff competition from the new private banks and the foreign players who
were making inroads in their markets,
these banks have been able to increase their net profits by over 50%. As a result of the
increasing competition in the sector, these banks have been trying to improve upon their
margins and asset quality. Most of these banks have a high CAR and as such they do not
face any capital constraint in their growth plans. Even their return on net worth has been at
par in most of the cases with the other new players in the market. But the coming years
would be more challenging for these banks as the public sector are also trying to adapt to
the new environment and the new banks have already equipped themselves to have a major
share in any opportunity that would accrue.

Some of the private sector-old players are Bank of Madura Ltd., Tamilnad Mercantile Bank
Ltd., The Jammu & Kashmir Bank Ltd., The Vysya Bank Ltd., etc.
Private Sector Banks- New

The Banking Regulation Act was amended in 1993 permitting the entry of new private
sector banks. The act also specified certain criteria for establishing new private sector
banks. The criteria are as follows:

1. The banks should have a minimum net worth of Rs1bn.


10

2. The promoters holding should be minimum 25% of the paid up capital.


3. The banks should offer shares to the public within three years of their operations.

The first new private sector bank started operations in 1995. The minimum net worth
requirement of Rs1bn and difficulty in getting the banking license has kept the option open
for very few players.

The financial institutions have promoted many of these banks. With emphasis on service
and technology, it is for the first time that Indian banks are challenging the foreign banks.
These banks are making heavy use of technology to give good service on par with foreign
banks but to a much wider audience e.g. branch size has been reduced considerably by
using technology and having less manpower. This saves the cost of the branch. In addition
the ATM etc helps drawing large customers to one branch.

The new private banks have been consistently gaining market share from the public sector
banks. The major beneficiary of this has been corporate clients who are most sought after
now.

The new private sector banks have performed very well in the FY2000.Most of this banks
have registered an increase in net profits of over 50%.They have been able to make
significant inroads in the retail market of the public sector and the old private sector banks.
During the year, the two leading banks in this sector had set a new trend in the Indian
banking sector. HDFC Bank, as a part of its expansion plans had taken over Times Bank.
ICICI Bank became the first bank in the country to list its shares on NYSE.

Some of the private sector-new players include, Centurion Bank Ltd., Global Trust Bank
Ltd., HDFC Bank., ICICI Banking Corporation Ltd., IDBI Bank Ltd., etc.

C. Foreign Banks

Foreign banks have been doing the normal banking business in the country. During the
period of nationalization, the entry of new foreign banks and expansion by existing foreign
banks were prohibited. Even, when the norms were relaxed later on, RBI was very slow in
granting any further approvals to these banks. But most of these banks have concentrated
11

on the metropolitan cities of the country and have been able to do reasonably well. These
banks have used the latest technology to compensate for the limited number of branches
they have.

In the post liberalization period, there has been a sharp increase in the total business done
by the foreign banks. A number of new players have entered and the existing players have
consolidated their position in the market. In the last couple of years, some of the foreign
banks have entered the retail segment and introduced a number of new products in the
market. This has intensified the competition in the banking sector and has made most of the
old players rethink their strategy.

Some of the foreign banks operating in India are ABN-AMRO Bank N.V., ANZ Grind lays
Bank Ltd, Citibank N.A., Deutsche Bank AG, Standard Chartered Bank, etc.

D. Co-Operative Banks

Co-operative banks are a part of the vast and powerful superstructure of co-operative
institutions, which are engaged in the tasks of production, processing, marketing, and
distribution, servicing, and banking in India. The co-operative banks were conceived in
order to substitute unorganized money market agencies like moneylenders, to provide
adequate short-term and long-term institutional credit at reasonable rates of interest, and to
bring about integration of the unorganized and organized segments of the money market.

The main aim of the co-operative banks is to provide cheaper credit to their members, and
not to maximize their profits. There has been an impressive growth in deposits, credit and
working capital of these banks. The annual rates of growth of co-operative banks have been
quite high, and are comparable with those of commercial banks. The government and the
RBI have taken a number of steps to improve the health and strength of co-operative banks
in India. In keeping with other financial sectors reforms, certain co-operative banking
reforms also have been carried out after 1991.

1.3 CURRENT SCENARIO

4 State Bank of Indore
5 State Bank of Mysore
6 State Bank of Patiala
7 State Bank of Saurashtra

18 nationalized banks in India:

> Allahabad bank

> Taib Bank

Currently (2011), overall, banking in India is considered as 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. Even in terms of quality of assets and capital adequacy,
Indian banks are considered to have clean, strong and transparent balance sheets-as compared
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-without any stated exchange rate-and this has
mostly been true.

With the growth in the Indian economy expected to be strong for quite some time-especially
in its services sector, the demand for banking services-especially retail banking, mortgages
and investment services are expected to be strong. M&As, takeovers, asset sales and much
more action (as it is unraveling in China) will happen on this front in India.

2.3 ABOUT HDFC BANK


The Housing Development Finance Corporation (HDFC) was amongst the first to receive an
'in-principle' approval from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to set up a bank in the private
sector, as part of RBI's liberalization of the Indian Banking industry in 1994. The Bank was
incorporated in August 1994 in the name of 'HDFC Bank Limited' with its registered office in
Mumbai, India. HDFC Bank commenced operations as a Scheduled Commercial Bank in
January 1995

HDFC Bank, the pioneer of the retail-banking movement in India, is one of the fastest
growing and most profitable banks in India with a strong urban presence. The bank, with a
market share of 2.5% has a wide reach across the country with a branch network of 425
branches and 950 ATMs. Strong understanding of the retail sphere (46% of total advances in
9mFY05) and technology initiatives has made the bank the second largest private sector bank
in the country. The bank has largely outpaced the sector growth over the last few years, but of
late the growth momentum has been subdued due to competitive reasons.

HDFC Bank is headquartered in Mumbai. The Bank at present has an enviable network of
over 250 branches spread over 135 cities across the country. All branches are linked to each
other through an online real- time basis. Customers in 80 locations are also serviced through
16

Phone Banking. The Bank's expansion plans take into account the need to have a presence in
all major industrial and commercial centers where its corporate customers are located as well
as the need to build a strong retail customer base for both deposits and loan products. Being a
clearing/settlement bank to various leading stock exchanges, the Bank has branches in the
centers where the NSE/BSE has a strong and active member base.

The Bank also has a chain of over 800 networked ATMs across these cities. Moreover,
HDFC Bank's ATM network can be accessed by all domestic and international
Visa/MasterCard, Visa Electron/Maestro, Plus/Cirrus and American Express credit/charge
cardholders.
HDFC Bank operates in a highly automated environment in terms of information technology
and communication systems. The entire bank's branches have connectivity which enables the
bank to offer speedy funds transfer facilities to its customers. Multi-branch access is also
provided to retail customers through the branch network and Automated Teller Machines
(ATMs).
The Bank has made substantial efforts and investments in acquiring the best technology
available internationally to build the infrastructure required for a world-class bank. In terms
of software, the Corporate Banking business is supported by Flex cube, while the Retail
Banking business by Fin ware, both from i-flex Solutions Ltd. The systems are open, scalable
and web-enabled.

The Bank has prioritized its engagement in technology and the internet as one of its key goals
and has already made significant progress in web- enabling its core businesses. In each of its
businesses, the Bank has succeeded in leveraging its market position, expertise and
technology to create a competitive advantage and build market share.

The Bank has received recognition both nationally and internationally for 'The Best Bank' on
various parameters in publications like Euro money and Finance Asia.

The Bank's IT department has total staff strength of 120 (approx.), with a mix of functional
and technical specialists. The project managers for new IT initiatives are designated both
from this group and from businesses. Almost all the project development and application
maintenance activities are outsourced to IT vendors.

2.4 HISTORY OF THE BANK


HDFC was incorporated in 1977 with the primary objective of meeting a social need that of
promoting home ownership by providing long-term finance to households for their housing
needs. HDFC was promoted with an initial share capital of Rs. 100 million.
Against the milieu of rapid urbanization and a changing socio-economic scenario, the
demand for housing has grown explosively. The importance of the housing sector in the
economy can be illustrated by a few key statistics. According to the National Building
Organization (NBO), the total demand for housing is estimated at 2 million units per year and
the total housing shortfall is estimated to be 19.4 million units, of which 12.76 million units is
from rural areas and 6.64 million units from urban areas. The housing industry is the second
largest employment generator in the country. It is estimated that the budgeted 2 million units
would lead to the creation of an additional 10 million man-years of direct employment and
another 15 million man-years of indirect employment.
MILE STONES
Acquired Times Bank in merger from Times Of India Group (5 6% present holding)
in 2000.
HDFC owns only 24.4%, rest owned by public and private equity investors JP
Morgan Chase (5 -6%).
Large Foreign Institutional Investors (in India) including Putnam, etc. (big vote in
Indian equity markets) 10-11%
Warburg Pincus has a significant holding in HDFC (its promoter)

Having identified housing as a priority area in the Ninth Five Year Plan (1997-2002), the
National Housing Policy has envisaged an investment target of Rs. 1,500 billion for this
sector. In order to achieve this investment target, the Government needs to make low cost
funds easily available and enforce legal and regulatory reforms.
2.5 MISSION
HDFC Bank's mission is to be a world-class Indian Bank. The Bank's aim is to build sound
customer franchises across distinct businesses so as to be the preferred provider of banking

RESEARCH AND METHODOLOGY


Research methodology:
The Research methodology used for the study was very rigorous. Questionnaires were made,
interviews with customers were held and various books and websites were consulted for any
type of information related to the study. The methodology so applied is briefly discussed
below step-by-step.
Therefore Marketing research can be defined as the systematic design, collection,
analysis, and reporting of the data and finding relevant to a specific marketing situation
facing the company.

Research Design:
Research design is the basic plan which guides the researchers in the collection and
analysis of data required for practicing the research product. In fact the research design is
the conceptual structure with which research is conducted. It consist the blue print for the
collection, measurement and analysis of the data that was followed completing the study to
ensure that study is relevant to the problem and will follow the predetermined and set data.

Type of Research Design:

Descriptive research: - Descriptive research provides data about the population or universe
being studied. Descriptive Research is used when we are interested in knowing the
characteristics of certain groups such as age, sex, educational level, occupation etc. But it can
only describe the "who, what, when, where and how" of a situation, not what caused it.
Descriptive research is used when the objective is to provide a systematic description that is
as factual and accurate as possible.

DATA COLLECTION TECHNIQUES


PRIMARY SOURCE:
The data required for this stage was regarding the customer relationship and the behavior and
perception of the existing customers towards the products/ services provided by the bank and
also, to get their satisfaction level toward bank. The data could have been collected by just
interviewing the customers but to get a reasonable conclusion and fair accuracy,
questionnaires were prepared and customers were interviewed.
27

Interview was regarding the product usage. Some of the questions asked in the interview
were, do you have knowledge about the various products provided by the bank, do you use
these products, yes/no then why, do you want any changes in the existing product, will you
switch over to another bank for a new products/services which is not yet introduced in HDFC
Bank, etc.
The above questions were really helpful in the conclusion part of the study. Some customers
were very co-operative but some didnt even care to listen. Overall, the study was a success
as far as primary source was concerned.

SECONDARY SOURCE:
The secondary data was collected with the help of various books, websites, bank journal and
employees of the bank. The data collected from the websites and books was good enough to
be included in the study analyzed and concluded but the data got from the employees of the
bank was most accurate and reliable. Various newspapers, magazines, websites, bank
Journals, etc were checked out for information regarding the latest technological
advancement in retail banking in the bank.
The secondary source didnt provide any personal views of the customers on the
technological advancements but were a great help in completing the report and getting the
details about the bank history, various business groups of the bank, etc.

FINDINGS
Most of the customers of the bank are satisfied, but there is a minority of customers
who are still looking for improvement in this aspect of service area as well in the field
of working environment.
One area of strength of the bank which it can really boast off as most of the customers
are satisfied when it comes to customer care.
Overall the result of survey has shown a positive sign for the overall services
from where on they can increase their customer base with the exception of a
few dissatisfied customers which needs to be looked after.
The bank has caused a lot of inconvenience to the customers regarding its
banking hours as shown from the result of the survey. Flexible banking hours
should be achieved to attain higher customer satisfaction again lot of them are
even satisfied .
There is a mixed response when it comes to transaction time. A certain section or
respondents seem to be satisfied but a substantial number of customers are looking for
faster transaction time.

RECOMMENDATIONS

reduced.
7. There should be more branches especially in smaller towns and cities .

40

CONCLUSION
Hence, I conclude by understanding that marketing concepts is essentially about the few
things which contribute to the banks success:

The bank cannot exist without customer.

The purpose of a bank is to create, win and keep a customer. The customer is and
should be the central focus of everything the bank does.

Ultimate aim of a bank is to deliver satisfaction to the customers.

Customer satisfaction is affected by the performance of all the personnel of the bank.

It is also a way of organizing the bank. The starting point for the organizational design should
be the customer and the bank should ensure that the services are performed and delivered in
the most effective way. Service facility should also be designed for customer convenience.
