EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Private banking is a concept which is new and fast emerging in the world of banking where
changes have become a necessity in order for banks to survive in this competitive
environment vis-à-vis not only from the public and private sector banks but also from the
foreign banks. The objective of the research is to explore the various products, which a
private banker deals into and the systematic process involved to match client requirements
with the right kind of product.

Through this research one of the main objectives is to explore the reason why most of the
banks are injecting private banking as business profile to their set of service offerings.

Though private banking evolved in late 80’s in Asia, in India its not more than 5 years old.
ICICI started it in Aug 2002 and since then it has been a remarkable success. Today there are
enormous solutions to cater client needs but what suits best to a client is where private
banking fits in. Every client will have different needs, liking and preferences. So a customized
portfolio for every client is the need of the day.

This research will highlight more on the product portfolio of ICICI Private Banking, how they
have changed or innovatively structured to be attractive and competitive.
INTRODUCTION

The banking section will navigate through all the aspects of the Banking System in India. It
will discuss upon the matters with the birth of the banking concept in the country to new
players adding their names in the industry in coming few years.

The banker of all banks, Reserve Bank of India (RBI), the Indian Banks Association (IBA)
and top 20 banks like IDBI, HSBC, ICICI, ABN AMRO, etc. has been well defined under
three separate heads with one page dedicated to each bank.

However, in the introduction part of the entire banking cosmos, the past has been well
explained under three different heads namely:

 History of Banking in India



 Nationalization of Banks in India

 Scheduled Commercial Banks in India

The first deals with the history part since the dawn of banking system in India. Government
took major step in the 1969 to put the banking sector into systems and it nationalized 14
private banks in the mentioned year. This has been elaborated in Nationalization Banks in
India. The last but not the least explains about the scheduled and unscheduled banks in India.
Section 42 (6) (a) of RBI Act 1934 lays down the condition of scheduled commercial banks.
The descriptions along with a list of scheduled commercial banks are given on this page.

Here we more concerned about private sector banks and competition among them. Today, there
are 27 private sector banks in the banking sector: 19 old private sector banks and 8 new private
sector banks.
These new banks have brought in state-of-the-art technology and aggressively marketed their
products. The Public sector banks are facing a stiff competition from the new private sector
banks.
The banks which have been setup in the 1990s under the guidelines of the Narasimham
Committee are referred to as NEW PRIVATE SECTOR BANKS.

HISTORY OF BANKING IN INDIA

Without a sound and effective banking system in India it cannot have a healthy economy.
The banking system of India should not only be hassle free but it should be able to meet new
challenges posed by the technology and any other external and internal factors.

For the past three decades India's banking system has several outstanding achievements to its
credit. The most striking is its extensive reach. It is no longer confined to only metropolitans
or cosmopolitans in India. In fact, Indian banking system has reached even to the remote
corners of the country. This is one of the main reasons of India's growth process.

The government's regular policy for Indian bank since 1969 has paid rich dividends with the
nationalization of 14 major private banks of India.

Not long ago, an account holder had to wait for hours at the bank counters for getting a draft
or for withdrawing his own money. Today, he has a choice. Gone are days when the most
efficient bank transferred money from one branch to other in two days. Now it is simple as
instant messaging or dial a pizza. Money have become the order of the day.

The first bank in India, though conservative, was established in 1786. From 1786 till today,
the journey of Indian Banking System can be segregated into three distinct phases. They are
as mentioned below:

 Early phase from 1786 to 1969 of Indian Banks



 Nationalization of Indian Banks and up to 1991 prior to Indian banking sector
Reforms.

 New phase of Indian Banking System with the advent of Indian Financial & Banking
Sector Reforms after 1991.

To make this write-up more explanatory, I prefix the scenario as Phase I, Phase II and Phase
III.

5
Phase I

The General Bank of India was set up in the year 1786. Next came Bank of Hindustan and
Bengal Bank. The East India Company established Bank of Bengal (1809), Bank of Bombay
(1840) and Bank of Madras (1843) as independent units and called it Presidency Banks.
These three banks were amalgamated in 1920 and Imperial Bank of India was established
which started as private shareholders banks, mostly Europeans shareholders.

In 1865 Allahabad Bank was established and first time exclusively by Indians, Punjab
National Bank Ltd. was set up in 1894 with headquarters at Lahore. Between 1906 and 1913,
Bank of India, Central Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank, Indian Bank, and Bank
of Mysore were set up. Reserve Bank of India came in 1935.

During the first phase the growth was very slow and banks also experienced periodic failures
between 1913 and 1948. There were approximately 1100 banks, mostly small. To streamline
the functioning and activities of commercial banks, the Government of India came up with
The Banking Companies Act, 1949 which was later changed to Banking Regulation Act 1949
as per amending Act of 1965 (Act No. 23 of 1965). Reserve Bank of India was vested with
extensive powers for the supervision of banking in India as the Central Banking Authority.

During those day’s public has lesser confidence in the banks. As an aftermath deposit
mobilization was slow. Abreast of it the savings bank facility provided by the Postal
department was comparatively safer. Moreover, funds were largely given to traders.

Phase II

Government took major steps in this Indian Banking Sector Reform after independence. In
1955, it nationalized Imperial Bank of India with extensive banking facilities on a large scale
especially in rural and semi-urban areas. It formed State Bank of India to act as the principal
agent of RBI and to handle banking transactions of the Union and State Governments all over
the country.

6
Seven banks forming subsidiary of State Bank of India was nationalized in 1960 on 19th July,
1969, major process of nationalization was carried out. It was the effort of the then Prime
Minister of India, Mrs. Indira Gandhi. 14 major commercial banks in the country was
nationalized.

Second phase of nationalization Indian Banking Sector Reform was carried out in 1980 with
seven more banks. This step brought 80% of the banking segment in India under Government
ownership.

The following are the steps taken by the Government of India to Regulate Banking
Institutions in the Country:

 1949: Enactment of Banking Regulation Act.



 1955: Nationalization of State Bank of India.

 1959: Nationalization of SBI subsidiaries.

 1961: Insurance cover extended to deposits.

 1969: Nationalization of 14 major banks.

 1971: Creation of credit guarantee corporation.

 1975: Creation of regional rural banks.

 1980: Nationalization of seven banks with deposits over 200 crore.

After the nationalization of banks, the branches of the public sector bank India rose to
approximately 800% in deposits and advances took a huge jump by 11,000%.

Banking in the sunshine of Government ownership gave the public implicit faith and immense
confidence about the sustainability of these institutions.

Phase III

This phase has introduced many more products and facilities in the banking sector in its
reforms measure. In 1991, under the chairmanship of M Narasimham, a committee was set up
by his name which worked for the liberalization of banking practices.

7
The country is flooded with foreign banks and their ATM stations. Efforts are being put to
give a satisfactory service to customers. Phone banking and net banking is introduced. The
entire system became more convenient and swift. Time is given more importance than money.

The financial system of India has shown a great deal of resilience. It is sheltered from any
crisis triggered by any external macroeconomics shock as other East Asian Countries
suffered. This is all due to a flexible exchange rate regime, the foreign reserves are high, the
capital account is not yet fully convertible, and banks and their customers have limited
foreign exchange exposure.

8
BANKS IN INDIA

In India the banks are being segregated in different groups. Each group has their own benefits
and limitations in operating in India. Each has their own dedicated target market. Few of them
only work in rural sector while others in both rural as well as urban. Many even are only
catering in cities. Some are of Indian origin and some are foreign players.

All these details and many more is discussed over here. The banks and its relation with the
customers, their mode of operation, the names of banks under different groups and other such
useful information’s are talked about.

One more section has been taken note of is the upcoming foreign banks in India. The RBI has
shown certain interest to involve more of foreign banks than the existing one recently. This
step has paved a way for few more foreign banks to start business in India.

individuals and institutions alike. The credit for the same can be attributed to its vast network,
probably the largest among private sector banks.This makes the life of an employee a lot
easier, especially for those who face the external customers. You do not have to justify your
organization, it is only the product that has to be pitched. As far as employee benefits are
concerned, ICICI Bank offers a lot of financial benefits ranging from your family health
insurance to your kids school donations. The organization is sensitive to the needs of its

TECHNOLOGY

ICICI use many type of advance technological software like Pinnacle 7.0 and
Pinnacle7.016.Among from this software ICICI bank uses the e-banking, core banking,
mobile banking electronic display sy ICICI Bank was using Teradata for its data warehouse.
However, due to its proprietary hardware, the cost of procurement, upgrades and
administration was soaring. The closed box architecture of Teradata imposed restrictions on
scalability. Secondly, querying and loading could not happen simultaneously. Queries could
only be run during business hours because the loading of data had to take place during off-
business hours. This meant that the refresh rate of EDW was delayed, so queries may not
reflect the most current data. ICICI Bank was also dependent on Teradata for support and
other activities: The bank was completely tied down to that solution.

These issues compelled ICICI Bank to look for more efficient and flexible solutions. The
solution would have to address not only current issues, but accommodate future growth
expectations and business requirements. ICICI Bank evaluated numerous data warehousing
32
solutions in the pursuit of solving its issues, and developed a shortlist of alternatives for its
migration proof-of-concept: Sybase, SAS and Netezza. The primary criteria for evaluation
was the price-to-performance ratio where Sybase IQ emerged the clear winner. During this
rigorous testing, Sybase IQ delivered faster results on independent hardware and operating
systems with minimum infrastructure. Commending the improvements achieved, Amit Sethi,
Joint General Manager, ICICI bank says, "What impressed us wasthat even with overall lower
costs, we could achieve significantly better query performanceafter implementing the Sybase
enterprise warehouse solution." ICICI Infotech today launched an enterprise resource
planning (ERP) solution for the small and medium enterprises.

The ERP package - Orion Advantage - comes bundled with an HP dual processor Xeon
server, Oracle 9i database, Windows 2003 server and costs about Rs 9.90 lakh and has a 15-
user license.

An ERP package helps a manufacturer or any other business implementing it to manage all
the important parts in the company such as product planning, parts purchasing, maintaining
inventory and interacting with suppliers and customers.

ICICI Infotech officials told a press conference here today that Orion Advantage offered a set
of business practice solutions for industry segments such as engineering, auto ancillary,
pharmaceuticals, chemicals and IT distribution. Besides the cost advantage, the ERP package
also came pre-configured. ICICI Infotech had mapped the processes specific to each industry
segment into the package.

Mr. Manoj Kunkalienkar, Executive Director and President, ICICI Infotech, said that small
and medium enterprises (SMEs) offered a good market and ICICI Infotech hoped to become a
leading solution provider to this segment.

Mr. R.K. Kanthi, Deputy General Manager, ICICI Infotech, said there was no ERP package
for the SMEs that bundled the server, database and operating system right now. That was the
advantage ICICI Infotech offered to SMEs as Orion Advantage came bundled and pre-
configured. Besides the high cost of generic ERP packages, their implementation time as far
as SMEs were concerned was also long. Orion Advantage could be installed in 45 days.

33
ICICI Infotech had signed up six customers so far for the package and hoped to garner a 15
per cent market share of the SME segment, whose number in the country was estimated at
2.30 lakh.

Mr. K.S. Natarajan, Managing Director, Trident Pneumatics Pvt Ltd of Coimbatore, one of
the companies that had installed Orion Advantage, said that the company had tried three other
ERP packages, all of which had failed, before settling on Orion Advantage.

Mr Kunkalienkar said that ICICI Infotech planned to move the two development centers in
Chennai into a single location and double the staff strength from 300 now in the next two
years.

The Chennai centers were involved in research and development of Orion ERP solutions and
Premia, an insurance package.

Retail Segment of ICICI Lombard General Insurance :

ICICI Lombard's Retail Segment consists of personal insurance products - Health, Home,
Motor and Travel insurances.

Health Insurance

ICICI Lombard is known to be a pioneer in introducing innovative concepts in the Indian


health Insurance sector. Be it the floater concept, the critical illness cover or the tax gain
policy, all these were first introduced by ICICI Lombard. It was also one of the first general
insurance companies in India to have a robust online system in place for buying and renewing
policies.

The various plans offered by ICICI Lombard include Family Floater Plan - where one policy
covers the entire family, Health Advantage Plus - where they cover OPD and dental expenses,
also help save maximum tax under section 80D and Critical Illness plan - a special policy
covering a list of critical illnesses. They also have a basic Personal Accident Plan which
covers against accidents. ICICI Lombard health plans also provide coverage against terrorism.

Home Insurance

Home Insurance is actually one of the most neglected areas in the general insurance category.
Simply, because people in general, especially in India, do not give much importance to it.
However, in the recent years, due to the increase in awareness, and the great extent of damage
caused to property due to natural calamities and terrorism, it has been gaining importance.
The Home Insurance Policyoffered by ICICI Lombard covers both the structure and the
contents of the house. You can opt for either of the covers or both. Unlike other policies, it
also covers damage due to terrorist activities, loss of cash, public liability, temporary
resettlement and others.

Motor Insurance

Motor Insurance

As Motor Insurance is mandatory in India and is governed by the Motor Tariff Act, the
policies offered by various companies are more or less the same. There is not much room for
innovation in this category. ICICI Lombard too offers Car Insurance and Two Wheeler

39
Insurance. They are known to offer one of the best rates in the market. As the entire buying
process is online and is instant, without any submission of documents or other formalities,
people generally opt it for convenience.

Travel Insurance
Travel insurance is one of the most prominent sector of general insurance, especially overseas
travel insurance and student medical insurance. ICICI Lombard offers various options in both
the categories. The Overseas Travel Plans and Student Medical Plans offered cover medical
and non-medical expenses, including compensation for flights hijacked and pre existing
diseases in case of emergency. They charge on a per day basis if the travel is more than 7
days. ICICI Lombard has tied up with United Health Group to facilitate access to all its
clinics while in U.S.

The Student Medical Plans are accepted in almost universities worldwide. They also have a
section in their website, University Search, where one can find specific plans for specific
universities.

All the above retail policies can be bought online, without any documentation through their
website www.icicilombard.com .One can not only buy, but also manage and renew their
insurance policies online.
NRI Services
ICICI Lombard has developed insurance policies for Non-resident Indians that can be bought,
renewed and tracked online.

Parents' Health Insurance covers hospitalization and medical expenses incurred by parents of
the policyholder in India. For parents' travelling outside India, ICICI Lombard offers a
Parents' Overseas Travel Insurance policy.

An NRI can insure his children/ dependents travelling abroad to study, under the Student
Medical Insurance plan. Likewise, the Home Insurance and Car Insurance schemes enables an
NRI to secure his assets in India.
Channels
Channel is the term used for the various approaches a company uses to tap its customers.
ICICI Lombard uses a multi channel approach to ensure the sales, service and other allied
activities are carried out in the most effective manner.

40
RETAIL
The Retail channel consists of sales executves, sales officers, brokers and agents. They are the
one who are in direct contact with the customers and bring the innovative insurance solutions
to their doorsteps.
Online

ICICI Lombard has developed a web-based system to meet all the pre and post-policy
transaction. One can get quotes, buy, renew and track their policies online through the

website [www.icicilombard.com]. With the do-it-yourself architecture, the online channel is


fast, convenient, easy to understand and operate

Retail Segment of ICICI Lombard General Insurance :

ICICI Lombard's Retail Segment consists of personal insurance products - Health, Home,
Motor and Travel insurances.

Health Insurance
ICICI Lombard is known to be a pioneer in introducing innovative concepts in the Indian
health Insurance sector. Be it the floater concept, the critical illness cover or the tax gain
policy, all these were first introduced by ICICI Lombard. It was also one of the first general
insurance companies in India to have a robust online system in place for buying and renewing
policies.

The various plans offered by ICICI Lombard include Family Floater Plan - where one policy
covers the entire family, Health Advantage Plus - where they cover OPD and dental expenses,

49
also help save maximum tax under section 80D and Critical Illness plan - a special policy
covering a list of critical illnesses. They also have a basic Personal Accident Plan which
covers against accidents. ICICI Lombard health plans also provide coverage against terrorism.

Home Insurance
Home Insurance is actually one of the most neglected areas in the general insurance category.
Simply, because people in general, especially in India, do not give much importance to it.
However, in the recent years, due to the increase in awareness, and the great extent of damage
caused to property due to natural calamities and terrorism, it has been gaining importance.
The Home Insurance Policyoffered by ICICI Lombard covers both the structure and the
contents of the house. You can opt for either of the covers or both. Unlike other policies, it
also covers damage due to terrorist activities, loss of cash, public liability, temporary
resettlement and others.

Motor Insurance
As Motor Insurance is mandatory in India and is governed by the Motor Tariff Act, the
policies offered by various companies are more or less the same. There is not much room for
innovation in this category. ICICI Lombard too offers Car Insurance and Two Wheeler
Insurance. They are known to offer one of the best rates in the market. As the entire buying
process is online and is instant, without any submission of documents or other formalities,
people generally opt it for convenience.

Travel Insurance
Travel insurance is one of the most prominent sector of general insurance, especially overseas
travel insurance and student medical insurance. ICICI Lombard offers various options in both
the categories. The Overseas Travel Plans and Student Medical Plans offered cover medical
and non-medical expenses, including compensation for flights hijacked and pre existing
diseases in case of emergency. They charge on a per day basis if the travel is more than 7
days. ICICI Lombard has tied up with United Health Group to facilitate access to all its
clinics while in U.S.

The Student Medical Plans are accepted in almost universities worldwide. They also have a
section in their website, University Search, where one can find specific plans for specific
universities.

50
All the above retail policies can be bought online, without any documentation through their
website www.icicilombard.com .One can not only buy, but also manage and renew their
insurance policies online.

51

renewed and tracked online.

the policyholder in India. For parents' travelling outside India, ICICI Lombard offers a
Parents' Overseas Travel Insurance policy.

An NRI can insure his children/ dependents travelling abroad to study, under the Student
Medical Insurance plan. Likewise, the Home Insurance and Car Insurance schemes enables an
NRI to secure his assets in India.

ICICI Lombard uses a multi channel approach to ensure the sales, service and other allied
activities are carried out in the most effective manner.

services.

STRENGHTS

1) Online Services: ICICI Bank provides online services of all it’s banking facilities. It also
provides D-Mart account facilities on-line, so a person can access his account from
anywhere he is.

[D-Mart is a dematerialized account opened by a salaried person for purchase & sale of
shares of different companies.]

2) Advanced Infrastructure: Branches of ICICI Bank are well equipped with advanced
technology to provide the customers with taster banking services. All the computerized
machines are located in suitable manner & are very useful to the customers & staff of the
bank.

3) Friendly Staff: The staff of ICICI Bank in all branches is very friendly & help the
customers in all cases. They provide faster services along with bonding & personal
relationship with the customers.

4) 12 hrs. Banking services: Compared to other bank ICICI bank provides long hrs. of
services i.e. 8-8 services to the customers. This service is one of it’s kind & is very helpful for
the customers who are in urgent need of money.

5) Other Facilities to the Customers & Employees: ICICI Bank also provides other
facilities like drinking water facilities, proper sitting arrangements to the customers. And
there are also proper Ventilation & sanitary facilities for the employees of the bank.

6) Late night ATM services: ICICI bank provides late night ATM services to the customers.
The ATM centers of ICICI bank works even after 11:00pm. at night in certain branches.

66
Weakness

1) High Bank Service Charges: ICICI bank charges highly to customers for the services
provided by them when compared to other bank & that is why it is only in the reach of higher
class of society.

2) Less Credit Period: ICICI bank provides credit facilities but only upto limited period.
Even when the credit period is not over it sends reminder letters to the customers which
may annoy them.

67
OPPORTUNITIES

1) Bank –Insurance services: The bank should also provide insurance services. That
means the bank can have a tie-up with a insurance company. The bank will advertise &
promote the different policies introduced by the insurance company & convince their
customers to buy insurance policies.

2) Increase in percentage of Returns on increase: The bank should provide higher returns
on deposits in comparison of the present situation. This will also upto large extent help the
bank earn profits & popularity.

3) Recruit professionally guided students: Bank & Insurance is a special non-aid course

where the students specialize in the functioning & services of the bank & also are knowledge
about various tax policies. The bank can recruit these students through tie-ups with colleges.
Such students will surely prove as an asset to the bank.

4) Associate with social cause: The bank can also associate itself with social causes
like providing relief aid patients, funding towards natural calamities. But this falls in the
4th quadrant so the bank should neglect it.

68
THREATS

1) Competition: ICICI Bank is facing tight competition locally as well as internationally.


Bank like CITI Bank, HSBC, ABM, Standered Chartered, HDFC also provide equivalent
facilities like ICICI do and also ICICI do not have consistency in its international operation.

2) NET SERVICE: ICICI Bank provides all kind of services on-line. There can be easy
access to the e-mail ids of the customers through wrong people. The confidential
information of the customers can be leaked easily through the e-mail ids.

3) Decentralized Management: Each branch manager is given the authority of taking


decisions in their respective branches. The decisions made by different managers are
diverse and any one wrong decision can laid to heavy losses to the bank.

4) No Proper Facilities to Uneducated customers: ICICI Bank provides all services through
electronic computerized machines. This creates problems to the less educated people. But this
threat falls in the 4th quadrant so its negligible. The company can avoid this threat.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

Data Collection Techniques:

This project consists of two parts.

The first part is a study of the banking industry, ICICI Bank using secondary data sources.
This secondary information has been sourced from the internet and from business related
magazines and newspapers.

The second part of the study has been done using an exploratory research process and a
structured questionnaire was developed for this purpose. For the collection of primary data
this was the only method used. The reason I used this method is because a need was felt for
the free influx of information about the products. Also this method allowed the use of skills
gained in class.

Sample Design:

The population considered for the purpose of the survey was people residing in Delhi and the
National Capital Region (NCR).

Sampling Technique Used:

Since the information required was not of a very technical nature and also looking at the
scope of the project and the extent of the target segment, the sampling technique employed
was Convenience Sampling. I administered the questionnaires.

Sample Size:

I have restricted the sample size to 50 respondents. This was done keeping in mind the time
constraints and the fact that I felt that this number would be enough to serve the information
needs required to show the trends.

Customer Satisfaction:

Customer satisfaction is equivalent to making sure that product and service performance
meets customer expectations. It is the perception of the customer that the outcome of a

70
business transaction is equal to or greater than his/her expectation. Customer satisfaction
occurs when the acquisition of products and /or services provides a minimum negative
departure from expectations when compared with other acquisitions and when the marginal
utility of a transaction is equal to or greater than preceding acquisitions.
Customer satisfaction occurs when the perception of the reward from the purchase of goods
or services by the customer meets or exceeds his/her perceived sacrifice. The perception is a
consequence of matching past purchase and consumption experience with the current
purchase.

Customer Service and Satisfaction:

When we talk about customer service and/or satisfaction, we talk about creativity. Creativity
allows us to handle or diffuse problems at hand or later on rather in the process of conducting
the everyday business. We talk about how, or what, does the organization have to do to gain
not only the sale but also the loyalty of the customer. We want to know the payoff of the
transaction both in the short and long term. We want to know what our customers Want? We
want to know if our customers are satisfied. Satisfaction, Of course, means that what we
delivered to a customer met the customer’s Approval. We want to know if customers are
delighted and willing to come

Back, and so on. Fleiss 2 and Feldman 3 present examples of that delightfulness in their
writings. Fleiss has written about Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and Feldman has discussed
excellence in a cab ride. As important as delightfulness is, some of us minimize it, or even
totally disregard it. At this point, we fail. Some of the issues that will guarantee failure in
sales, satisfaction, and loyalty are:

 Employees must adhere to a rigid chain of command



 Employees are closely supervised

 Conflict—in whatever form—is not allowed

 Rewards are based on carrot-and-stick principles

 Wrong objectives are measure.

73

71
We must understand customer expectation levels concerning quality. We must also
understand the strategy for customer service quality, and next we must understand the
measurement and feedback cycles of Customer satisfaction.

The customer is the person or unit receiving the output of a process on the system. In fact, it is
worth emphasizing that a customer can be the immediate, intermediate, or ultimate customer.
Also, a customer may be a person or persons, or a process or processes. Customer
satisfaction, however, is when the customer is satisfied with a product/service that meets the
customer’s needs, wants, and expectations.

There are at least three levels of customer expectations about quality:

Level 1. Expectations are very simple and take the form of assumptions, must have, or take it
for granted. For example, I expect the airline to be able to take off, fly to my destination, and
land safely. I expect to get the correct blood for my blood transfusion and I expect the bank to
deposit my money to my account and to keep a correct tally for me.

Level 2. Expectations are a step higher than that of level 1 and they require some form of
satisfaction through meeting the requirements and/or specifications. For example, I expect to
be treated courteously by all airline personnel. I went to the hospital expecting to have my
hernia repaired, to be in some pain after it was done, to be out on the same day, and to receive
a correct bill. And I went to the bank expecting the bank teller to be friendly, informative, and
helpful with my transactions.

Level 3. Expectations are much higher than for levels 1 and 2. Level 3 requires some kind of
delightfulness or a service that is so good that it attracts me to it. For example, an airline gives
passengers traveling coach class the same superior food service that other airlines provide
only for first-class passengers. In fact, I once took a flight where the flight attendants actually
baked

cookies for us right there on the plane. When I went to the hospital, I expected staff to treat
me with respect and they carefully explained things to me. But I was surprised when they
called me at home the next day to find out how I was doing. And at my house closing, the 74

bank officer, representing the bank holding my mortgage, not only treated me with respect
and answered all my questions about my new mortgage, but just before we shook hands to
close the deal, he gave me a housewarming gift.

Conclusion

Thus, ICICI has been able to use technology to provide value-added service to its customers
during the last few years. For ICICI, technology is an integral part of their business. However,
their overall progress could have been smoother but for certain internal and extraneous factors
and also a pressure on spreads due to a competitive market (Annual report, 2000 –01). E-banking
has become a necessary survival weapon and is fundamentally changing the banking industry
worldwide. To day, the click of the mouse offers customers banking services at a much lower
cost and also empowers them with unprecedented freedom in choosing vendors for their
financial service needs. No country today has a choice- whether to implement E-banking or not
given the global and competitive nature of the economy. ICICI have toupgrade and constantly
think of new innovative customized packages and services to remain competitive. The invasion
of banking by technology has created an information age and commoditization of banking
services. ICICI have come to realize that survival in the new e-economy depends on delivering
some or all of their banking services on the Internet while continuing to support their traditional
infrastructure. The rise of E-banking is redefining business relationships and the most successful
banks will be those that can truly strengthen their relationship with their customers. Without any
doubt, the international scope of E-banking provides new growth perspectives and Internet
business is a catalyst for new technologies and new business processes.
