FINANCIAL SYSTEM: Financial system may be defined as set of institutions, instruments and markets, which foster savings and channels them to their most efficient use.

Developmental banks finance the projects based on their viability to generate cash flows to meet the interest and repayment obligations. They have an in-built promotional aspect because projects have to fall within the overall national industrial priorities located preferably in backward areas and promoted by first generation entrepreneurs. Developmental banks provide financial assistance on medium and long term basis from 5 to 7 years or even 10years. Development financial institutions (DFIs) or developmental banks starting with industrial finance corporation of India (IFCI) and SFC to assist the promotion and financing of fixed assets of industrial units have been in existence since 1948. Now at all India level, there is the industrial development bank of India, small industries development bank of India. At the state level, there is state financial corporation (SFCs) and state industrial development corporation.

Evolution of State Financial Corporation: The Indian Financial sector today comprises an impressive network of financial institutions and wide range of financial instruments. Functionally there are two types of financial institutions in the Indian market, namely developmental institutions and investment institutions. Developmental institutions include industrial finance corporation of India (IFCI), Industrial Reconstruction Bank of India (IRBI), State Finance and Development Corporation. In the category of investment institutions comes the Unit Trust of India (UTI), Life Insurance Corporation (LIC), State Level bodies like State Industrial Investment Corporation. The Idea of developmental banks has its origin in the urge in the backward and under developed countries to achieve quick economic growth. Under this urge, a developmental bank was conceived as an instrument for promoting all round development, since they undertake both banking function as well as developmental functions. The establishment of Industrial Finance Corporation of India (IFCI) though bridged serious gap in institutional finance for large-scale industrial units, the problem of term finance for medium and small-scale units was left unsolved. The need for stabling a similar institution at the state level was left unsolved. The need for establishing a similar institution at the state level was initially felt as device to bridge the nexus. Hence the SFCs came into existence to look into this problem as regional development banks over a period of years. SFCs form a unique set of institutions established to assist and develop industrialization in the state of India. The activities of IFCI were statutorily restricted to large scale-sector. The Indian socio-economic environment with certain under-developed feature constantly stressed the urgent need for the development of medium and small-scale industries. Establishment of regional development banks has been important means to meet this end. On noting the shortcoming of IFCI, the central government thought of establishment of SFCs. The proposal was referred to the state governments, IFCI and RBI for their views. After obtaining the views of the state Governments and RBI, the SFCs Bill was introduced in the parliament in December 1952. Since the enactment, the act was amended on many occasions, the latest being in 2002. Department Of Management Studies and Research, NCET, Bangalore 3

Introduction Small scale industries play a key role in the industrial of a developing country; this is because they provide immediate large scale employment &have comparatively higher, they need a shorter gestation period & relatively smaller markets to be economic, they need lower investment, offer a method of ensuring a more equitable distribution of national income &facilitate an effective mobilization of resources of capital &skill which might otherwise remain unutilized, &to stimulate the growth of industrial entrepreneurship &promote a more diffused pattern of ownership &location.

The small scale industries have been experiencing a major turnaround in the post liberalization period with the growth rate hovering around 15percent much higher than the large industries in past 5 yr, despite constraints like infrastructure, finance, market management &technology.

A Study On Role of KSFC In Financing SSIs and MSIs With further improvements in these basic areas, SSI will definitely show better result in this century. Small scale contributes 40percent of the export &above 88percent of manufacturing employment of the country .nearly 14.5lakhs registered small business units are functioning .at present it accounts for 55 percent of industrial production.

Meaning of small scale industries use of small has a designation in industry differentiates one set of industry from others comparatively small in operation ,employment, products ,capital ,technology ,etc. thus, this smaller sector share unique problems compared to others .In case of manufacturing units small industries are to be expected to have a unique set of problems in relation to their smallness that differentiate them from other manufacturing units .At the same time, the sector has unique advantages.&, as such small is beautiful, but also beneficial, efficient &reliable

Definition of small scale industries(SSI) An industrial undertaking is one in which the investment in fixed assets in plant & machinery, whether held on ownership or on lease hire purchase does not exceed Rupee one crore. In other words the definition of SSI varies from one country to another .In most of the countries of the world criterion for defining a small enterprise is related to the size of employment for instance, in U S A it is less than 20 skilled workers ,in Germany less than 500 people ,in U K it is less than 50 people respectively, in some countries , both employment & investment are taken into account. In Japan the investment in industrial undertaking should not exceed 100m, employing not more than 300 employees. In south Korea, investment limit is 2lakh$ &development limit being 200 people.

Industrial Development In India The planners in India were benefited from the experience in the us that lopsided development of large scale industries had only led to imbalance in the distribution of wealth .India was rural & their was a wide disparity in income between rural rustic &urban population

While the economy was pre- dominantly agricultural there

were also industries producing

conventional products like cement ,cotton ,jute ,textiles ,etc. located in small pockets owned & run by family groups .The change in India was gradual &came as a whimper while the change in a industrial advance in the US &UK came about with a bang so has to metamorphosis of the economy in India from agricultural to industrial, the planners could prognosticate the danger of small scale & cottage &village sector going into oblivion & the work force migrating from the villages to the metropolitan cities. The planning commission formulated the concept of intermediate technology .

In India accordingly large scale key industries which required a huge capital outlay, advanced technical know-how &had a long gestation lag were started by the government itself as the owner subsequently, the big business houses who had acquired experience &had capital to invest, capital the MRTP companies,were allowed to invest in hi- tech industries ,similarly foreign investment was welcome freely. The planners stressed the development of small scale &village &cottage industries alongside large &medium scale industries with a view to achieve local self sufficiency .the small scale sector contributed to the growth of local economy by crating access to local market.

A Study On Role of KSFC In Financing SSIs and MSIs Scope of small scale industries The importance of SSI is a global phenomenon encompassing both the developing & developed countries. Normal McRae (1979) predict the age of mammoth corporation was over & the future lay with small, dynamic, efficient production group that could respond quickly to customer needs. Globally, the emphasis is on the small enterprises holding the key to growth with equity & proficiency. In India, small industry refers to manufacturing activity. Recently, it has also come to include servicing activities such as financial, health care, personal care, tele- communication, transport, tourism etc.

Importance of small scale industries (SSI) In a labour abundant & capital scarce country like India, SSI has come to occupy a significant position in the planned industrialization of the economy. Most SSI has a low capital intensity & high potential for employment generation. Besides, they posses location flexibility which serves as an effective instrument for achieving a wide dispersal of industries. SSI units also serve as an instrument in achieving a wide dispersal of industries. Further, SSU serves as a mean of bringing forth indigenous entrepreneurship & savings lying document, particularly in semi urban & rural areas. The following points further demonstrate the importance of SSI Small is beautiful: small is beautiful said E.F. Schumacher, he emphasized on small working units, communal ownership & regional should be on person & not on product Innovative & productive: it is the small units which are highly innovative though they dont maintain own research & development wings Individual taste , fashions & personalized service: small firms are quick in studying changes in taste & fashions of consumers & in adjusting the production accordingly. Symbols of national identity: SSI are almost always locally owned & controlled & they can strengthen rather than destroy the extended family & other social systems , & cultural traditions that are perceived as valuable in their own right as well as symbols of national identity. Dispersal over wide areas: it s only SSI which have a tendency to disperse over wide areas .According to the census of SSU, 62.19% of the units are located in backward areas.

Advantages of SSI

SSI has distant advantages both economic and social. Some of these are listed below:

Some SSIs dont require a high level of technology. SSIs projects can be undertaken in a short period and, hence can increase production both in the short and long run. Most developing countries are rich in certain agricultural, forest and mineral resources; small scale enterprise can be based on the processing of locally produced raw materials. Small scale Industries in developing countries help to crate economic stability in society by diffusing prosperity and by checking the expansion of monopolies.

Department Of Management Studies and Research, NCET, Bangalore

A Study On Role of KSFC In Financing SSIs and MSIs The development of SSIs will create jobs in rural areas of the developing countries where unemployment and underemployment are high; this will help in reducing the exodus of workers from the rural to the urban areas in search of jobs. SSIs create immediate and permanent employment at a relatively small capital cost. SSIs bring integration with rural economy on the one land and large scale enterprise on the other. SSIs offers a method of ensuring equitable distribution of national income. SSI dont require heavy and costly infrastructure as a larger enterprises, and have a favourable capital output ratio. SSIs have their own place in a countrys economy .Imperfect competition protects the small firms markets and enables them to exist even where they are not efficient in terms of cost. Policies governing SSI

Industrial development plays a crucial role in Indias development strategy, particularly with regard to the objectives of structural diversification, modernization & self reliance .the progress of industrialization over the last forty three years has been striking feature of Indian economic development policies constitute the frame work for appropriate decision at varied levels.

New policy for SSI Although the industrial policy resolution of 1948 laid stress on the importance of SSI , especially cottage & village industries , the industrial revolution of 1956 ,laid down the role to be assigned to an approach of the government towards SSI in the country. The industrial policy resolution of 1956 assigns the following task to the SSI To create one big large scale employment opportunity for people with relative low capital investment per head To make an attempt to meet a substantial part of domestic demand for consumer goods &even part of capital goods. To provide assistance to large number of entrepreneurs artisans &craftsmen in getting employment , income &reasonable standard of living. To make available foreign markets for the products of SSI by taking measures to make them export-oriented.

K.FUTURE GROWTH AND PROSPECTUS The corporation is making assiduous efforts in generating fee based income. Marketing of mutual fund products in association with UTI, life insurance products with LIC and providing several customer centric services with IL&FS are among them. The corporation has set up a special purpose vehicle (SPV) by name Karnataka Enterprise Solution Ltd for effectively handling the services such as project evaluation, loan syndication, issue management, egovernance and related activities. The corporation is recognized by the SEBI for monitoring of public issues of Rs.500 crore and above. Currently, KSFC is monitoring of public issues of sun tv, sobha developers, BEML, IVR prime urban developers and air deccan. As this is a fee based activity this area will be given impetus and many more issues will be taken up for monitoring in the days to come. A separate department is therefore is created to give focused attention for the promotion and monitoring of the fee based financial services. Another mile stone in this direction is setting up of a separate department for infrastructure development through public/private participation. The corporation has already made headway in this direction and the process of negotiation with several agencies has already begun. The joint venture projects would be of world class standard be it the IT park, the shopping mall, commercial complex or SEZ. The new activities would ensure sustained cash flow not only to the owner of the property but also to the corporation by way of rentals and other earnings.

According to Peter Drucker, the Management Guru, management theories are not merely pen paper concepts but a blend of both theory and practices. It is very essential for a management student to gain more practical knowledge along with the theoretical understanding. Before getting exposed to the real corporate world as a professional, students may not get a chance to know how an organization works practically. As a part of curriculum if students get an opportunity to enter into different organizations, they can learn more about the various practices, work culture, management style, etc. and its relation to the management theories that they have learnt in class. The in-plant training program at KSFC was very helpful to know the corporate culture that exists in company. By analyzing the whole structure of the company it is possible to know how theoretical concepts explained in the management books have a lively practical existence. The staff of KSFC is open minded especially those who are in higher level. I found each and every staff to be cooperative and encouraging in helping me to get hands on experience about their work culture.

A Study On Role of KSFC In Financing SSIs and MSIs

INTRODUCTION :The role played by the small scale industry in the economic activity of advanced industrialized countries like Japan, Germany, Great Britain and the United States of America is significant. Many Nations, both developed and developing exteriorized that the small industry sector is a useful vehicle for growth, in the later for the creation of new employment opportunities on a wide scale in the shortest possible time. Small and Medium enterprises account for approximately 80 percent of the private sector industrial workers and hence occupy an important position in the industrial structure of Japan. The employment creating capacity of the small and medium enterprises in Japan has been seen to be larger than that in Germany or United States.1 Small and Medium enterprises play in extraordinarily important role as muscles for regional economic development. In the development of sparsely populated areas such as Hokkaido Island in the North they have been a valuable tool for development. In the first half of the sixties the small and medium enterprises accounted for more than 50 percent of Japanese exports. Such business was mostly labour intensive and not dependent on imports or raw materials and hence, its net contribution to foreign exchange was very high.2 Indian economy is an under developed economy. Its vast resources are either unutilized or underutilized. A major section of man power is lying idle. The per capita income is low. Capital is shy and scarce and investment is lean. Production is traditional and the technique is outdated. The out put is insufficient and the basic needs of the people remain unfulfilled.3 Industrialization is the only answer to this present state of disrupted economy. The problem is of the approach which should be direct, utilitarian and pragmatic. Such industries do not require huge capital and hence suitable for a country like India. The small scale industries have a talent of dispersal. They can be accessible to the remote rural areas of the country and do not lead to regional imbalances and concentration of industries at one place, which is responsible for many economic resources such as entrepreneurship and capital.4 The planners Department Of Management Studies and Research, NCET, Bangalore 38

A Study On Role of KSFC In Financing SSIs and MSIs and the economists in India took recourse to small scale industry because most of these industries existed in the traditional form, which symbolize our heritage and past glory. These still serve as the back bone of our economy, which is mostly rural. It is with this view that an assessment of growth, development and working of small scale industries in the specific region is attempted in this research study. However, before entering into an analytical study of this project, it is necessary to examine the concept of Small scale industry as it has come to be, today, in India. The concept of small scale industries, as it has developed in years, is one of the confusion and lacks clarity. Neither the Government, nor the planners could provide a clear and graphic definition. Obviously Small scale industries were not given such importance during the British rule as is given today. We now have a pragmatic approach to the concept in view of the prevailing economic conditions, gradual industrial development and the difficulties that arise in the implementation of planned programs. Hence, the concept has undergone changes from time to time. Before Independence, the present small scale industry was meant to denote the village and the urban cottage industry. This group included a variety of industries ranging from manufacturing of Iron safes, locks, carpets, marble jigs, baskets, hand-loom cloth and the like. In fact, at that time the term cottage and Small scale industries was used in juxtaposition to large scale industries, which were established under the British patronage. Small scale industries were indigenous with a historical background of ages. They received encouragement and support during the freedom movement. The nationalists considered it to be their patriotic duty to develop them.

Definition Small and medium scale enterprises are the largest employer segment in most economies. In the United States, the Size Standards Office of a government department called the Small Business Administration defines the criteria by which a business may be considered a small and medium scale enterprise.

Overview Since the time of independence, the small-scale sector in India has been a major contributor to countrys Gross Domestic Product (GDP). This traditional sector in India is considered to have huge growth prospect with its wide range of products. With 40 percent share in total industrial output and 35 percent share in exports, the small-scale industrial sector in India is acting as Engine of Growth in the new millennium. Department Of Management Studies and Research, NCET, Bangalore 39

A Study On Role of KSFC In Financing SSIs and MSIs The definition for small-scale industrial undertakings has changed over time. Initially they were classified into two categories- those using power with less than 50 employees and those not using power with the employee strength being more than 50 but less than 100. However the capital resources invested on plant and machinery buildings have been the primary criteria to differentiate the small-scale industries from the large and medium scale industries. An industrial unit can be categorized as a small- scale unit if it fulfils the capital investment limit fixed by the Government of India for the small-scale sector. The traditional small-scale industries clearly differ from their modern counterparts in many respects. The traditional units are highly labour consuming with their age-old machineries and conventional techniques of production resulting in poor productivity rate whereas the modern small-scale units are much more productive with less manpower and more sophisticated equipments. Khaki and handloom, sericulture, handicrafts, village industries, coir, Bell metal are some of the traditional small-scale industries in India. The modern small industries offer a wide range of products starting from simple items like hosiery products, garments, leather products, fishing hook etc to more sophisticated items like television sets, electronics control system, various engineering products especially as ancillaries to large industrial undertakings. Nowadays Indian small-scale industries (SSIs) are mostly modern small-scale industries. Modernization has widened the list of products offered by this industry. The items manufactured in modern Small-scale service & Business enterprises in India now include rubber products, plastic products, chemical products, glass and ceramics, mechanical engineering items, hardware, electrical items, transport equipment, electronic components and equipments, automobile parts, bicycle parts, instruments, sports goods, stationery items and clocks and watches. Since independence the Government of India has nurtured this sector with special care with the following aims: To develop this sector as a major source of employment To encourage decentralized industrial expansion To ensure equitable distribution of income. To mobilize capital investment and entrepreneurship skills

Advantages associated with Small Scale Industries

This industry is especially specialized in the production of consumer commodities. Small scale industries can be characterized with the special feature of adopting the labour intensive approach for commodity production. As these industries lack capital, so they utilize the labour power for the production of goods. The main advantage of such a process lies in the absorption of the surplus amount of labour in the economy who were not being absorbed by the large and capital intensive industries. This, in turn, helps the system in scaling down the extent of unemployment as well as poverty.

It has been empirically proved all over the world that Small Scale Industries are adept in distributing national income in more efficient and equitable manner among the various participants in the process of good production than their medium or larger counterparts.

Small Scale Industries help the economy in promoting balanced development of industries across all the regions of the economy.

This industry helps the various sections of the society to hone their skills required for entrepreneurship.

Small Scale Industries act as an essential medium for the efficient utilization of the skills as well as resources available locally.

Small Scale Industries enjoy a lot of help and encouragement from the government through protecting these industries from the direct competition of the large scale ones, provision of subsidies in the form of capital, lenient tax structure for this industry and many more.

How Is SME Sector Growing in India: An Analysis Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) are rightly tagged as the engine of the modern Indian economy. As per the experts, the small and medium enterprises in India must

Department Of Management Studies and Research, NCET, Bangalore


A Study On Role of KSFC In Financing SSIs and MSIs be encouraged to achieve the stable Gross Domestic Project growth trajectory. The SME sector in India is definitely growing at an exceptional rate. Still, there are some important things that need to be focused upon so that best out of these enterprises can be obtained. Here is a brief analysis of the Indian SME sector.

Some Figures of Interest the Indian SME market is worth $5 billion. There are over 11 million SME units in India that produce more than 8,000 products. Nearly 90 percent of the Indian industrial units belong to the sector of small and medium enterprises. The SMEs contribute 40 percent to the overall industrial output of the country.


These enterprises contribute almost 35 percent to the Indian industrial export. Finally, these enterprises are estimated to grow at the rate of 20 percent per year for upcoming years.


Main Reasons for SME Growth Foreign and local fund providers are taking huge interest in the small and medium enterprises of India. Banking sector has also shown a keen interest in lending credit to these enterprises. Many recent mergers have taken place in the sector.


The sector has significantly contributed towards the domestic production as well as the export earnings. Low investment is required to start and maintain these enterprises. The sector has contributed impressively towards job creation and increase in individual incomes. Technological growth is also a factor for growth of SME's in India as there are several trade portals and business directories available online with huge database of buyers, sellers, manufacturers who are basically back bone of SME's.


Challenges Ahead Infrastructure needs to be developed for setting up the SMEs in the rural sector of the country. Transportation, electricity and communication are the main parts of the infrastructure required. Technology need to be evolved so that quality products are manufactured by the sector. Lack of information about the inputs, including raw material, machinery and skills, is one critical challenge in front of the owners of these enterprises. High level of research and development is required.

Factors Responsible for Growth of Small and Medium Businesses Planning is not only the first step of starting a business, but it should be done every month without taking any break. You must know how to plan about your business marketing, making business budgets, setting up monthly targets and so on. Accounting is another activity that you need to practice for small business growth.

Department Of Management Studies and Research, NCET, Bangalore


A Study On Role of KSFC In Financing SSIs and MSIs You must know the monthly profits and expenses. Budget should be prepared without failing to ensure that your funds are strategically spent.

One important practice for rapid small business growth is extensive marketing and promotion. You must eye at global buyers and not only the local buyers. Growth is possible in the local market, but rapid growth requires you to extend your reach at the global level. For this, internet marketing is the best medium one can think of. You can choose b2c and b2b environments to take your business to more and more buyers.


Fast small business growth is possible by regularly updating your products and services. Retaining old customers and building new relations should be done simultaneously by giving good quality products and services to them. Most importantly, you should have a strong communication medium to spread your latest business updated to your prospects.


Offering discounts and special offers too help in rapid small business growth. Your availability and on-time delivery are other good approaches to win loyal customers for your business that will help your business to grow faster and further. Give all these best shots to expect the business success to keep on rising.

How To Set Up Small Scale Industry Small scale industries have a large contribution in the growth of an economy. If we take example of India, the fastest growing economy in the world, the small scale ventures have gained a huge success quotient. Not only these enterprises produce export quality goods, they have also created thousands of job opportunities as well. Another advantage of small scale enterprises is that they are easy to set up and can fulfill ones dream to become an entrepreneur. However, there are some important steps that you must follow to set up a small scale industrial unit. Learn about them from the following discussion.

Findings & suggestions

The topic for Dissertation was Financial assistance by KSFC to Small scale

industries. The data thus collected was processed and analysed to provide certain
findings about the study.

The following are the findings with regard to the procedural aspects of financing small-scale industries by KSFC

KSFC has a special guidance cell entrepreneurial guidance (EG) section to guide the entrepreneurs in respect of various schemes operated by the corporation. They also provide information about the minimum requirements to be given, to enable the entrepreneurs to be called before project clearance committee. The project clearance committee where the amount of assistance is more than 500.00 lakhs which conducts discussions with the promoters and if they find the project support worthy. They issue them with the application forms The Credit departments of the Corporation appraise projects and disburse funds after sanctioning of the loans.

Then a common understanding will be arrived at between the borrower and the corporation usually for rescheduling of payment (only in genuine cases)

Department Of Management Studies and Research, NCET, Bangalore


A Study On Role of KSFC In Financing SSIs and MSIs If none of these methods prove to be fruitful, then the security provided by the borrower will be confiscated and the amount realized will beset off against amount due from the defaulting customer.

The following are the findings with regard to the schemes of the corporation
KSFC offers varieties of loan schemes for providing assistance to different segments of the society. A borrower can avail loan facilities under more than one scheme and can take loan before repaying the previous one, which exclusively depends upon the existing loan transactions with the Corporation. KSFC has repayment norms to decide the period for a loan. Apart from this, the cash generation capacity of the proposed project is considered to fix up the actual repayment. The need for guarantor /security for sanctioning a loan under different schemes depend on the nature of the proposed project. If the project involves high risk then the need for the security also increases. If the borrower is a regular customer, then his credit worthiness becomes vital.

The following are the findings with regard to the evaluation criteria adopted by KSFC

Prior to providing assistance to new unit, an intensive study is done on the technical feasibility and profitability of the proposed project by experts. Regular reports are furnished by promoters during the implementation stage, which provides information about placement of orders, procurement of machinery. The official of KSFC also does periodic site visits. Quarterly progress of the project is done and comparisons are drawn relating to performance with the promises made.

A Study On Role of KSFC In Financing SSIs and MSIs

On the basis of analysis and interpretation of the data collected, the following suggestions are put forward for more effective financing of small scale industries

The documentation procedure must be made easier. This will help the small & medium enterprises to meet their urgent financial requirements and thus function smoothly without much loss.

The repayment period on loans should be increased so that the industry/firms can repay the loan taken without much pressure because it also reduces the chances of bad debts.

To reduce the burden of the rural entrepreneurs the fee and other charges have to be reduced and thereby encouraging the rural entrepreneurs.

The incidence of penalty should be reduced for genuine defaulters; KSFC should have judicious mix of advances to small medium enterprises to improve their reliability.

The appraisal department has to consider more parameters in credit assessment of the firms. So that prompt repayment is ensured.

There must be rigorous advertising Champaign in print and tele media popularise the schemes. It is suggested that loan applications must be properly investigated and also the end use of funds must be checked from time and again as per the KSFC Norms. Restructuring of Schemes to be initiated in all sectors of economic and social importance of the state, so as to take advantage of liberalization and to captivate entrepreneurs to involve in boosting industrial activities. In order to transform the existing units towards new innovative industrial activities, different kinds of industrial enterprises must be encouraged. Sponsor assistance to small industries to facilitate them for marketing their products on subsidized terms should be extended aggressively. Interest rate to tested customers to be normal and concession to be offered. Frequent policy reviews regarding quantum of loan should be undertaken with the change in economy and recessionary trend in the industry. Reduction in lead time for processing cases is suggested with a view to make a loan available to the customer much earlier and more cases must be examined and disposed off earlier. Department Of Management Studies and Research, NCET, Bangalore 62

A Study On Role of KSFC In Financing SSIs and MSIs

The Corporation should lower the rate of interest to attract business and evolving strategies for improving customer services.

Lack of time frame in release of term loans affects production in small medium enterprises since most of the entrepreneur find themselves behind production schedules.

The Government law try to protect the small medium enterprises because of the competition from the foreign collaboration by granting tax holidays.

The Corporation Law concentrates on improving loan appraisal by utilising the Technology.

Timely policy revives regarding quantum of loan, terms of repayment, types of loans etc, could be undertaken into the changes in the business need of small medium enterprises and reversionary trends in the economy.

Quality achievement is not the responsibility of one person it is the involvement of every executive. In order to achieve quality objectives of KSFC can also try to introduce quality circles within the organisation so that it can meet class quality service standards.

KSFC has been providing working capital under the single window scheme. This corporation can explore the possibilities of providing working capital to small units on long term and on continuing basis.

The Corporation can concentrate on attracting clients not only by the interest rate but also by good services and relationship.
