1.1 INTRODUCTION TO THE STUDY This project is mainly concerned with the deposit section of nationalized banks. The main objective was to study the various deposit schemes offered by nationalized banks for mobilizing deposits from public.

Deposit mobilization means attracting deposits from investors. Another area of progress of banks is the acceleration of deposit mobilization. Deposit mobilization effort by banks has not been adequate to meet the needs of the present economic environment. Yet there is a vast scope for mobilizing deposits from different sectors of the economy, particularly in rural areas. Most of the deposit mobilization schemes are now tailored to the convenience and preference of the urban depositors, neglecting the potential rural depositors. The banks have to tailor the schemes to match in nature, convenience, preference and the needs of the rural depositors to be able to exploit the untapped rural savings.

The banks have to re-tailor or refashion their schemes in the light of every emerging situation and in view of the severe competition from national savings organization, unit trust of India, non-banking companies and the like.

The success of any deposit mobilization would very much depend upon the personalized services of the staff of rural branches. Integration with the rural community, participation in local activities and development of personal relations by the banks staff will enable the bank to tap the rural savings.

Nationalization has made it possible for the banks to reach to the remotest corner of the country to meet the economic needs by formulating schemes to suit the requirements of the weaker section of the society in innovative manners. Thus, nationalization has helped banks in achieving the all round progress of the country by achieving the socialistic goals.

1.2 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Deposit constitutes the backbone of the finance company. Deposits are accepted from the public for profitable deployment in the companys business, consisting of hire purchasing, leasing etc.

Meaning of deposit The key success for commercial banks is deposits and this is where the real crunch is expected, particularly for the newer banks. Not only deposits become harder to mobilize, they will become increasingly expensive to maintain and lending rates, with or without a cap on them, cannot be raised by banks beyond a certain limit.

Bank should posses the following feature in order to mobilize deposit: Should have financial stability. Should be managed by professionals. Should offer attractive schemes. Should offer attractive interest rates. Should offer courteous service.

Purposes of savings are as follows: To meet emergencies. To earn returns on surplus money. To purchase plot / flat / house. General financial security.

To buy durables. Regular income after retirement. To start or expand business. Medical / wedding / childrens education.

Progress of the bank: 1. Branch expansion: The branch expansion program of commercial banks is very significant for fulfilling the socio-economic goals, particularly the balanced development of various parts of the country. Impressive progress of commercial banks in increasing their branch network and diversifying their activities has brought about a wider, special and functional spread of banking facilities in the country

2. Deposit mobilization: Another area of progress of banks is the acceleration of deposit mobilization. Deposit mobilization effort by banks have not been adequate to meet the needs of the present economic environment. Yet there is a vast scope for mobilizing deposits from different sectors of the economy, particularly in the rural areas. The success of any deposit mobilization would very much depend upon the personalized services of the staff of rural branches. Integration with the rural community, particularly in local activities and development of personal relations by the bank staff will enable the bank to tap the rural savings.

The banks have to tailor the schemes to match, in nature, convenience, preference and the needs of the rural depositor to be able to exploit the untapped rural savings. Besides this, in a vast country like ours, the requirements and preferences of various community groups in different areas undergo periodic changes.

3. Advance to priority sector: Bank also offer advances for the national growth. It provide advances like, agricultural finance, institutional financing, export finance, and also provide advances to small scale industries.

2.6 RESEARCH DESIGN Research design is a basic plan which guides the researcher in the collection and analysis of data required for practicing the research. The fundamental base for the success of a project depends on its effective research design. Research design simply means a search for facts, answers to questions and solutions to problems.

This research is by and large involves the following methods: Scanning through standard text books to understand the theory behind deposit mobilization. Decision regarding the study of depository system of five nationalized banks. Collection of industry profile and their different schemes. Finally forwarding certain recommendations and conclusions to the nationalized banks. By and large the above research design was employed for the study.

Secondary data: Secondary data means data that are already available that is they refer to the data which have been collected and analyzed by someone and can save the time of the researcher.

Secondary data may be available in the form of company records, trade publications, libraries etc. The secondary data sources are: a. company reports. b. Daily news papers. c. Articles.

d. Brochures and text books. e. Internet (various web sites).

Primary data: Primary data are those which are collected for the first time. Primary data is collected by interviewing certain employees, managers who were chosen on the basis of their in depth knowledge and work experience in the bank. The interview was informal in nature to gain as much as possible.

2.8 FIELD WORK Initial field work is done for pre-testing tools for data collection, such as observations and interview schedule and measurement scales. The main field work is launched after the tools are ready for use.

2.9 DATA ANALYSIS TOOLS USED In this research the data analysis tools used are percentages and graphs. The various attributes were analyzed separately and the importance to each was calculated on basis of

the percentage. The rank having the maximum percentage was taken to be preferred importance to the particular attribute.

After having looking at each attribute separately, all the attributes were considered together to develop a map on the most preferred rank for all the attributes.

In the present project the field work consists of going to libraries for theoretical aspects and browsing through net for various schemes offered by different nationalized banks and also visiting banks for certain clarification.

2.11 OPERATIONAL DEFINITIONS OF THE STUDY Deposit: Money given in advance to show intention to complete the purchase of a property or Money transferred into a customer's account at a financial institution.

3.1 PROFILE OF THE INDUSTRY Banks are among the main participants of the financial system in India. Banking offers several facilities & Opportunities. However, owing to the lack of information & guidance, general public cannot avail of full benefits from the Banking system. Banking professionals regularly update News & Articles and Policies to keep you abreast of the latest developments in the field of banking.

The major participants of the Indian financial system are the commercial banks, the financial institutions (FIs), encompassing term-lending institutions, investment

institutions, specialized financial institutions and the state-level development banks, NonBank Financial Companies (NBFCs) and other market intermediaries such as the stock brokers and money-lenders. The commercial banks and certain variants of NBFCs are among the oldest of the market participants. The FIs, on the other hand, are relatively new entities in the financial market place.

Bank of Hindustan, set up in 1870, was the earliest Indian Bank . Banking in India on modern lines started with the establishment of three presidency banks under Presidency Bank's act 1876 i.e. Bank of Calcutta, Bank of Bombay and Bank of Madras. In 1921, all presidency banks were amalgamated to form the Imperial Bank of India. Imperial bank carried out limited central banking functions also prior to establishment of RBI. It engaged in all types of commercial banking business except dealing in foreign exchange.

Reserve Bank of India Act was passed in 1934 & Reserve Bank of India (RBI) was constituted as an apex bank without major government ownership. Banking Regulations Act was passed in 1949. This regulation brought Reserve Bank of India under government control. Under the act, RBI got wide ranging powers for supervision & control of banks.

RBI was empowered in 1960, to force compulsory merger of weak banks with the strong ones. The total number of banks was thus reduced from 566 in 1951 to 85 in 1969. In July 1969, government nationalized 14 banks having deposits of Rs.50Crores & above. In 1980, government acquired 6 more banks with deposits of more than Rs.200Crores. Nationalization of banks was to make them play the role of catalytic agents for economic growth. Banking Segment in India functions under the umbrella of Reserve Bank of India - the regulatory, central bank.

In addition, Banks are allowed to perform certain activities which are ancillary to this business of accepting deposits and lending. A bank's relationship with the public, therefore, revolves around accepting deposits and lending money. Another activity which is assuming increasing importance is transfer of money - both domestic and foreign from one place to another. This activity is generally known as "remittance business" in banking parlance.

The so called forex (foreign exchange) business is largely a part of remittance albeit it involves buying and selling of foreign currencies. The law governing Banking Activities in India is called "Negotiable Instruments Act 1881".

Banks are also called custodians of public money. Basically, the money is accepted as deposit for safe keeping. But since the Banks use this money to earn interest from people who need money, Banks share a part of this interest with the depositors. The quantum of interest depends upon the tenor - length of time for which the depositor wishes to keep the money with the Bank - and the ease of withdrawal. The thumb rule is, longer the tenor, higher the rate of interest and lesser the restrictions on withdrawal, lesser the interest. Exceptions, however, exist. Deposits are accepted from both resident (domestic) or non-resident Indian customers.

It is the business of the banker to accept deposits so that he can lend it to others and earn interest. Depending upon the liquidity position of the market and the size of deposit, the earnings can vary and if the size of the deposit is big enough, it is advisable to shop around and get the best rate.

Type of deposit accounts (Domestic Customers)

1. Fixed Deposit Accounts 2. Demand Deposits o

Savings Account

Current account

Most of the other products offered by the Banks viz. Recurring Deposit Account, Multi Option Deposit Account, Special Term Deposit Accounts, Current Fixed Account etc. are essentially combinations of the above basic type of accounts and are packaged by different Banks to attract different groups of customers. After nationalization of 14 major banks on 19th July, 1969, the banks were advised to open branches in rural and semi-urban areas and provide funds for all productive activities, irrespective of size and social status of the borrower, particularly to the weaker sections of the society. On 15th April 1980, six more banks were nationalized extending further the area of public control over the countrys banking system.

India adopted a socialistic pattern of society as its goal under which the wealth is required to distribute equitably among the various classes of the people in the country. The banking industry in the country was a powerful medium to mobilize the savings of the public and provide credit to the needy for their economic development.

The basic objective of nationalization of major commercial banks was to divert their funds for helping those sectors of the economy which actually accounted for significant portion of national production which were neglected earlier and were not getting adequate support of institutional finance.

Another reason for the nationalization of banks was to shift the control of banks from the hands of persons who continued to exert their influence over the bank management in one way or the other. It was feared that this continuance of the old influential people in command of the banks will not allow the implementation of government policies, program whole heartedly.

Nationalization has helped the banking industry in making significant and impressive progress. There has been rapid expansion of branches of these nationalized banks, not only in metropolitan and urban towns but also in rural and semi urban areas.

The banks could achieve tremendous progress in mobilizing deposits as a large number of branches in un-banked area, better ways and means were adopted to mobilize deposits as it has created public confidence. The extension of banking facilities in the rural and semi urban areas has not only made it possible to mobilize deposits on a large scale but has helped in inculcating banking habits in the rural masses. They have started using bank money such as cheques, pay orders, demand draft etc instead of currency. Nationalization has made it possible for the banks to reach to the remotest corner of the country to meet the economic needs by formulating schemes to suit the requirements of the weaker section of the society in an innovative manners.

Nationalization has transformed Indian banking from class banking to mass banking, from asset based lending to production oriented and need based lending. This is in fact a change in the very concept, perception and outlook of the banking.

Thus, nationalization has helped in achieving the all round progress of the country by achieving the socialistic goals.

3.2 PROFILE OF THE ORGANISATION CANARA BANK: Founded as 'Canara Bank Hindu Permanent Fund' in 1906, by late Sri. Ammembal Subba Rao Pai, a philanthropist, this small seed blossomed into a limited company as 'Canara Bank Ltd.' in 1910 and became Canara Bank in 1969 after nationalisation.

Canara Bank is one of the premier banks in the country, accredited with umpteen distinctions. The present stature of the Bank is due to its strong fundamentals and quality customer orientations.

STATE BANK OF INDIA: The origin of the State Bank of India goes back to the first decade of the nineteenth century with the establishment of the Bank of Calcutta in Calcutta on 2 June 1806. Three years later the bank received its charter and was re-designed as the Bank of Bengal (2 January 1809). A unique institution, it was the first joint-stock bank of British India sponsored by the Government of Bengal. The Bank of Bombay (15 April 1840) and the Bank of Madras (1 July 1843) followed the Bank of Bengal. These three banks remained at the apex of modern banking in India till their amalgamation as the Imperial Bank of India on 27 January 1921

Primarily Anglo-Indian creations, the three presidency banks came into existence either as a result of the compulsions of imperial finance or by the felt needs of local European commerce and were not imposed from outside in an arbitrary manner to modernise India's economy. Their evolution was, however, shaped by ideas culled from similar developments in Europe and England, and was influenced by changes occurring in the structure of both the local trading environment and those in the relations of the Indian economy to the economy of Europe and the global economic framework.

An act was accordingly passed in Parliament in May 1955 and the State Bank of India was constituted on 1 July 1955. More than a quarter of the resources of the Indian banking system thus passed under the direct control of the State. Later, the State Bank of India (Subsidiary Banks) Act was passed in 1959, enabling the State Bank of India to take over eight former State-associated banks as its subsidiaries.

INDIAN OVERSEAS BANK Indian Overseas Bank (IOB) was founded on February 10th 1937, by Shri.M.Ct.M. Chidambaram Chettyar, a pioneer in many fields - Banking, Insurance and Industry with the twin objectives of specializing in foreign exchange business and overseas banking. IOB had the unique distinction of commencing business on 10th February 1937 (on the inaugural day itself) in three branches simultaneously - at Karaikudi and Chennai in India and Rangoon in Burma (presently Myanmar) followed by a branch in Penang. At the dawn of Independence IOB had 38 branches in India and 7 branches abroad. Deposits stood at Rs.6.64 Crs and Advances at Rs.3.23 Crs at that time.

During the pre-nationalized era (1947-69), IOB expanded its domestic activities and enlarged its international banking operations. As early as in 1957, the Bank established a training centre which has now grown into a Staff College at Chennai with 9 training centers all over the country. IOB was the first Bank to venture into consumer credit. It introduced the popular Personal Loan scheme during this period. In 1964, the Bank made a beginning in computerization in the areas of inter-branch reconciliation and provident fund accounts. In 1968, IOB established a full-fledged department to cater exclusively to the needs of the Agriculture sector.

At the time of Nationalization (1969) IOB was one of the 14 major banks that was nationalized in 1969. On the eve of Nationalization in 1969, IOB had 195 branches in India with aggregate deposits of Rs. 67.70 Crs. and Advances of Rs. 44.90 Crs.

Post - nationalisation era (1969-1992) In 1973, IOB had to wind up its five Malaysian branches as the Banking law in Malaysia prohibited operation of foreign Government owned banks. This led to creation of United Asian Bank Berhad in which IOB had 16.67% of the paid up capital. In the same year Bharat Overseas Bank Ltd was created in India with 30% equity participation from IOB to take over IOBs branch at Bangkok in Thailand. In 1977, IOB opened its branch in Seoul and the Bank opened a Foreign Currency Banking Unit in the free trade zone in Colombo in 1979.

The Bank has sponsored 3 Regional Rural Banks viz. Puri Gramya Bank, Pandyan Grama Bank, Dhenkanal Gramya Bank. The Bank setup a separate Computer Policy and Planning Department (CPPD) to implement the programme of computerisation, to develop software packages on its own and to impart training to staff members in this field. .

5.1 FINDINGS Due to low interest rates offered by the bank, peoples interest on investment has been changed to stock exchange, and other investments which gives higher return. In case of deposit mobilization, Indian bank and IOB have taken effort to increase their deposit schemes. All the other three banks have to increase their deposit schemes. Most of the customers from rural area who are illiterate do not know about the various schemes offered by the banks even thaw they have enough money to deposit. This losses the business of the banks and also the rural people will not have the habit of saving. In case of recurring deposit scheme Indian bank is offering the minimum balance requirement. All the banks are offering scheme for senior citizen. This helps the old age people in our society to invest. But SBI is offering a highest minimum balance which all senior citizen can afford. Canara bank and corporation bank has started deposit scheme for children. This enables the children to have a habit of saving in present and for future.

5.2 SUGGESTIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS After analysis the following suggestions are considered to be worth while:

It is suggested for all these five banks to increase their interest rate on deposit to have more number of customers. Interest of people in investment has increased towards stock exchange that is in shares, which gives higher returns. So as to overcome from this the banks should increase their interest rates.

As the deposit mobilization is concerned the Indian bank and IOB has the highest amount of deposit during this year. The rest of other four banks has to make their efforts to mobilize more deposits from the customers.

As the staff of the banks play important role in deposit mobilization, they should create good impression by way of prompt services, and proper guidance to the customers.

As the Minimum balance requirement for recurring deposit is least in Indian bank, all the other five banks should also have decreased their minimum balance requirement on recurring deposit to encourage middle and lower level people in the society to open this scheme.

All banks providing schemes for senior citizen, SBI should try to decrease the minimum Deposit for this scheme to attract more customers and also help the old people.

Canara bank and Corporation bank have only offered scheme for children. If all other banks starts similar type of scheme it will encourage youth to deposit money and can use it in future purpose.

5.3 SUMMARY OF CONCLUSIONS The key success for commercial banks is deposits. Deposits constitute the backbone of the finance company, deposits are accepted for profitable deployment in the companys business.
