A Bank is generally understood as an institution which provides fundamental banking


services such as accepting deposits and providing loans. But AMBARNATH JAI-HIND
CO. OP. BANK LTD. is believed in grass root banking and customer satisfaction creation

but this bank started planning to provide credit facilities to small shopkeepers, hawkers,
peddlers for their daily functioning e.g. provide credit to purchase goods they provide credit
limit of Rs.20000/- with 14% Rate Of Interest.

Retail banking as a business model of banks had evolved over the years from the traditional

CHAPTER-1
INTRODUCTION TO TOPIC/PROJECT

1.1. What is Retail Banking?

“Retail banking is a banking service that is geared primarily toward individual consumer.
Retail banking is usually made available by commercial bank as well as smaller community
bank like cooperative bank. Unlike wholesale banking, retail banking focuses strictly on
consumer markets. Retail banking entities provide a wide range of personal banking
services, including offering savings and checking accounts, bill paying services, as well as
debit and credit cards. Through retail banking, consumers may also obtaining mortgages
and personal loans. Although retail is, for the most part, mass-market driven, many retail
banking products may also extend to small and medium sized business. Today much of
retail banking is streamlined electronically via automated teller machines (ATMs), or
through virtual retail banking known as online banking”.
“Retail Banking deals with lending money to consumers. This includes a wide variety of
loans, including credit cards, mortgage loans and auto loans, and can also be used to refer
to loan taken out at either the prime rate or the subprime rate.”

1.2. CHARACTERISTICS OF RETAIL BANKING


1. Banking facilities targeted at individual customers.
2. Focused towards mass market segment covering a large population of individuals.
3. Offer different liability, asset and a plethora of service products to the individual customers.
4. The delivery model of retail banking is both physical and virtual i.e. services are extended
through branches and also through technology driven electronic off sit delivery channels
like ATMs, Internet banking and Mobile Banking.
5. Extended to small and medium size business.

1.3. ADVANTAGES OF RETAIL BANKING

1. Client base will be large and therefore risk is spread across the customer base.
2. Customer loyalty will be strong and customers tend not to change from one bank to another
very often.
3. Attractive interest spread since spreads are wide, since customers are too fragmented to
bargain effectively: Credit risk tends to be well diversified, as loan amounts are relatively
small.
4. There is less volatility in demand and credit cycle than from large corporate.
5. Large numbers of clients can facilitate marketing, mass selling and the ability to
categories/select clients using scoring system/data mining.

Retail Banking unlike Corporate Banking is primarily driven by number of customers each
bank possesses more the number of customers more will be the profitability and strength
of the retail banking models. AMBERNATH JAI-HIND CO.OP. BANK LTD. would be

Page 5
Retail banking in AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO. OP. BANK LTD.

2. Price :
‘Price’ in the marketing mix refers to resultant transaction cost to be borne
by the banker or the customer depending upon the product offered or availed. In case of
deposit products, ‘Price’ refers to the interest the bank is quoting to the borrower customer
for offering the loan product to the customer. In case of other service, price refers to the
fee/charges the bank is charging for offering the different services.
AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO.OP. BANK LTD. started AMBERTHEV
YOJANA. In this interest rate provided by bank on fixed deposit is 10.25% and for senior
citizen the interest rate is 10.50% for 500 days and this scheme for valid for 2 moths June

promotion of the product will be based on a multipronged approach by developing various
promotional strategies. This included personal promotional measures and other
promotional measures. But the ultimate objective of these promotional measures is only to
win the customer and make him to avail the bank’s products and service. The various ways
in which the marketer develops promotion strategies are through personal selling,
Advertisement, Sales Promotions, Publicity etc.

going to launch new product. The product is credit facility for small vendor and hawkers,
peddlers.

4. Place
Place in retail banking generally refers to the place where the bank is offering
its product. The concept of place has undergone drastic changes during the past decade.
Earlier place was very much limited to the place of bankers the location of Branch and
where the services were delivered. But technology has changed the concept and place has
shifted from the brick and mortar format to e format and has reached the customer in his
place through internet banking and mobile banking.
AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO.OP. BANK LTD. started or operated
branches in rural or semi urban areas for delivered services to customers. They started
branches in near to villages or market where people gather.

Page 9

5. People
People again are a vital link in the marketing strategy chain. Retail Banking
basically being services marketing addressed to a large customer base, human factor plays
a very essential role in the success of the retail banking strategy. Again if we take the
marketing concepts, the important aspect of bank marketing is flow of service form the
banker to the customer through effective marketing strategies. In the chain of events taking
place in marketing, the effort starts from human factor and ends with human factor, the
banker and the customer. So people concept in marketing refers to the people who are doing
the marketing strategies and also people who are the beneficiaries of the marketing
strategies. The inseparability principle of bank products adds more importance to the
people concept because the effectiveness of the product depends on the effectiveness of the
people delivering the product.

6. Process
Process is an all permeating concept running through the product
development product structuring and delivery stage. Process will be successful only when
the output derived from the process is delivered in the expected way fulfilling the promise.
In short, process relates to all organizational activities which go into the marketing of the
final product to the customer delivery channels.
Process in AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO.OP. BANK LTD. is changes from
product to product or service to service. For e.g. if any customer want to apply for loan
first they want to apply for saving account with original document and after that he have
to full fill terms and condition like eligibility, they have to provide guarantor with their
documents after that bank have to make scrutiny next that loan file submitted to loan
department at banks central office which is situated at Ambernath then authorized people
decided it will be sanctioned or not. If loan is sanctioned disbursement of loan amount
made by pay order with behalf of customer.

Page 10

7. Physical evidence
Physical evidence refers to developing tangibility to the intangibility concept
of banking services. Some of the approaches include developing an efficient packaging,
other measures to improve the tangibility. Especially in the retail banking operations,
DEBIT CARDS/ ATM CARD, Personalized Cheque Book are classic cases of attempts by
banks for tangibilisation.

The seven Ps are both independent in the marketing effectiveness. This marketing mix is
important for AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO.OP. BANK LTD. because they want to
capture most of the rural market by providing their service and product to them. Marketing
mix is very important in deciding the marketing strategies on its own because of the built
in mechanism of the whole strategy.

1.6. DELIVERY MODELS OF SERVICES AT AMBARNATH JAI-HIND


CO.OP. BANK LTD.

Retail banking is a customer oriented business model and the success of the same depends
on how the products and services are delivered to the customers. It may be physical or
remote. It is depend on persons who are delivered the services. The three important human
interventions in physical channels are
1. Internal customer – staff of Branch

In retail banking delivery, staffs of the branch play a very crucial role in the entire delivery
process or in AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO.OP. BANK LTD. because they are
responsible for the end to end service delivery and any deficiency in delivery will result in

1.8. DEDICATED MARKETING MANAGERS

In AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO.OP. BANK LTD. marketing managers or officers or


executive all are dedicating toward work and they try to deliver their best. They believe in
service because they want to target rural customer out them most customer are illiterate or

on a fee basis or commission basis. AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO.OP. BANK LTD.

Retail Banking – Research

Major finding

In today's world where innovative financial services are being offered, the issue
of retail banking is highly crucial and with a lot of potential growth. Hence, it generates
interest for bankers and curiosity for researchers. Retail banking is the chain of products
and services offered to individual customers and to those associated with business.
The banking industry is highly competitive, with banks not only competing among each
other; but also with non-banks and other financial institutions. Most bank product
developments are easy to duplicate and when banks provide nearly identical services, they
can only distinguish themselves on the basis of price and quality. Therefore, customer
retention is potentially an effective tool that banks can use to gain a strategic advantage
and survive in today's ever-increasing banking environment. It is a foregone conclusion
that winds of massive change blowing across the banking industry in India forced most of
the commercial banks, more so public sector banks, to resort to retail banking as a
measure to attain further growth with stability. Retail banking is mass market banking,
where individual customers' diverse needs are fulfilled at the local level i.e. by providing
multiple products. It has been facilitated by growth of banking technology and automation
of banking process. With much scope in the avenues for operations, the real challenge for
the banks in the current scenario is to stand out in the midst of hard-hitting regulations of
the apex body. Current paper focuses on the terms, scope and concepts of retail banking,
its evolution in India, briefly discuss the scenario of Indian retail banking, also focuses on
some of the major issues of Indian retail banking industry. It also visualizes the future
of retail banking.

Retail Banking

Major finding through article

Purpose – Improving capability to generate value for customers is seen as a way to create
a new competitive edge, but developing the related organisational capabilities involves
facing several obstacles that stem from the producer-orientation of the retail-
banking business. This paper aims to focus on defining and describing those obstacles.
Design/methodology/approach – An in-depth, qualitative single case study of a
European retail bank was conducted. Findings – A retail bank can find it challenging,
first, to understand the deepest meaning and character of customer value and, second, to
harness the organizational attributes to deliver that value. The main barriers lie in the strong
producer-oriented way of doing business, a lack of employee commitment, a strong product
and sales orientation, a restrictive network, difficulties in seeing the profitability aspect of
a new mindset, lack of conceptualization and proper segmentation, and finally, silo-style
bank organizations. Research limitations/implications – The research is focused on
the retail-banking industry, while the findings are transferable to other retail finance
businesses. Practical implications – Enhancing value creation may provide a competitive
edge, but developing that edge means facing several obstacles, which may jeopardise the
calculated positive return on investment. For management, understanding the value of
the banking service in the customer's own context is critical. Originality/value –
Developing customer experience and value-in-use has been suggested

as a good starting point for customer orientation. However, research on its implications for
organizations and potential obstacles to implementation remains scarce. This paper offers

Page 20

a detailed view on the organizational development necessary to generate value-in-use in


a retail-banking context.

in India can be traced back to the entry of foreign bank. The conventional banking
business by public sector banks was done on a more generalized approach and there was
no specific demarcation as retail and non retail activities. Customer and industry
segmentation was adopted within the overall business plan of banks. Offering products
and services based on specific consumer segments was not attempted in a focused way.
Foreign banks operating in India set the trend and in the late 1970 and early 1980s and
came out with their consumer banking models with hybrid liability and asset products
specifically targeted at the personal segments.

In India with the advantage of technology right from start, many banks had a clear
positioning for retail banking and aggressively strategized for creating new markets for
the retail segment. In addition, the new generation private banks had posed a threat to the
retail business of foreign bank that had by then well defined business models for retail
banking. Now many banks private sector, public sector as well as cooperative banks also
with technology initiatives and redefined business model for retail had aggressively
entered the market space, creating a retail war and capture their share of the pie in the
liberalized economic environment and the resultant opportunities in retail banking.

Strong economic fundamentals, growing urban population, higher disposable income, rise
in young population, emergence of new customer segments and rise in the mass affluent

space, explosion of service economy in addition to manufacturing space have catapulted


the scope for retail banking business in India. The segment has become an important
component in the business design of the banks in India and almost all players in the
banking sector may be it becomes a fashion statement for all the players.

In a developing country like India where 60% of the population lives in rural areas, hence
AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO. OP. BANK LTD. consider to be the best service
provider but some of the customer disappointed about facilities of this bank e.g. they are
not provide Debit Card system or Net Banking. If they are providing Debit Card
facilities and Internet Banking facilities then obviously there will be increase in customer
base of AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO. OP. BANK LTD., and it will also helps to create
brand image. The overall study reveals that the AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO. OP.
BANK LTD., slightly growing after adopting Retail Banking. AMBARNATH JAI-HIND
CO. OP. BANK LTD., can take in consideration the following points:

 AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO. OP. BANK LTD., has to increase number of branch for
serving customer service and it will also helps attract more and more customer.

 Due to less number of branches some customer are not willing to business with
AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO. OP. BANK LTD.

 AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO. OP. BANK LTD. has to provide Debit Card facilities to
customer.

 Advertisement through television can influence many customers. So AMBARNATH JAI-


HIND CO. OP. BANK LTD. can try to concentrate all categories of income group
customers.

 AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO. OP. BANK LTD., should have take feedback from
customers it will helps to improve strategy.

Customer segmentation in AMBARNATH JAI-HIND CO. OP. BANK LTD.

Broadly customers are segmented based on their income levels as their need pyramid will
vary with the rise in their income levels. Banks develop and market their products based
on this segmentation and target the relevant segment for maximum conversion of
business.

The fundamental assumptions about customers for building retail banking products and
services are briefly explained as follows:

1. Customers are different.


2. Needs of the customers are different.
3. Each customer will have different sets of need for financial services.
4. The need requirement of customers for financial services will be unique.
5. Customers can be grouped together based on their income, age, geography, profession,
employment, vocation gender and family size.
6. Product and services can be developed for a single or a combination of the above elements
to satisfy most of the needs.
7. Product and services can be structured on a niche basis within one or any of the above
elements.

The above assumptions about customers help banks to develop suitable products and
services to cater to the need spectrum of the customers. To understand this concept, a
look into the Maslow’s Need Hierarchy Theory of Motivation is necessary. The theory
will help me to understand how banks structure products to match the different stages of
the need pyramid of the customers.
Customers buy the products and services of the bank primarily to satisfy their needs and
if their needs and banks products match, there is absolute synchrony and if the benefits
promised by the bank to the customer are delivered then there will be absolute
satisfaction from the customer end. The requirements of the customers in general can be
related with the need hierarchy theory by Abraham Maslow.
1. Physiological Needs
 Core Saving Account
 Personal Accident Cover
 Housing Loans

2. Security / Safety Needs


 Recurring, Fixed Deposit Products.
 Life Insurance Products – Endowment Products with low premium, long tenor and high
maturity amounts.
 Tax planning banking, insurance and Mutual Fund Products.
