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
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.

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.


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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.


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.

The Indian banking market is growing at an astonishing rate, with Assets expected to reach
US$1 trillion by 2010. An expanding economy, middle class, and technological innovations
are all contributing to this growth.

The country’s middle class accounts for over 320 million People. In correlation with the
growth of the economy, rising income levels, increased standard of living, and affordability of
banking products are promising factors for continued expansion.

The Indian banking market is growing at an astonishing rate, with Assets expected to reach US$1
trillion by 2010. An expanding economy, middle class, and technological innovations are all
contributing to this growth.

The Indian banking Industry is in the middle of an IT revolution, Focusing on the

expansion of retail and rural banking. Players are becoming increasingly customer - centric
in their approach, which has resulted in innovative methods of offering new banking products
and services. Banks are now realizing the importance of being a big player and are
beginning to focus their attention on mergers and acquisitions to take advantage of
economies of scale and/or comply with Basel II regulation.“Indian banking industry assets
are expected to reach US$1 trillion by 2010 and are poised to receive a greater infusion of
foreign capital,” says Prathima Rajan, analyst in Celent's banking group and author of the
report. “The banking industry should focus on having a small number of large players that can
compete globally rather than having a large number of fragmented players."

State Bank of India is the largest bank in India. It is also, measured by the number of branch
offices and employees, the second largest bank in the world.[citation needed] The bank traces its
ancestry back through the Imperial Bank of India to the founding in 1806 of the Bank of
Calcutta, making it the oldest commercial bank in the Indian Subcontinent. The Government of
India nationalised the Imperial Bank of India in 1955, with the Reserve Bank of India taking a
60% stake, and renamed it the State Bank of India. In 2008, the Government took over the stake
held by the Reserve Bank of India.SBI provides a range of banking products through its vast
network in India and overseas, including products aimed at NRIs. With an asset base of $126
billion and its reach, it is a regional banking behemoth. SBI has laid emphasis on reducing the
huge manpower through Golden handshake schemes and computerizing its operations.The State
Bank Group, with over 16000 branches , has the largest branch network in India. It has a market
share among Indian commercial banks of about 20% in deposits and advances, and SBI accounts
for almost one-fifth of the nation’s loans.There are some other banks which gives challenging

➢ Opportunity Matrix

➢ A Marketing opportunity is an area of interest in which a company can perform
profitably. An opportunity can take many forms. Some of them are:

➢ 1) Buying process made easy- Internet shopping
➢ 2) Meet the information needs of the customers in a better way.
➢ 3) A company can customize the product which was originally offered in standard form.

The opportunities that fall under the first quadrant are higher on the side of success
probability and also on the attractiveness, so the company should tap those opportunities
as early as possible.

➢ The opportunities falling under the second quadrant should be
➢ tapped only after the success of the opportunities in the first quadrant. Although the
success probability is on the lower side still the attractiveness is on the higher side.

➢ The opportunities in the third quadrant are less important as compared to the
opportunities in the first and second quadrant. Although the attractiveness is on the lower
side but the success probabilities of these opportunities are on the higher side.

➢ The opportunities in the fourth quadrant are negligible as the success probability and
attractiveness both are on the lower side
➢ Threat Matrix.

➢ An Environmental Threat is a challenge posed by an unfavourable trend or development.
In the absence of any defensive marketing action these threats may lead to deterioration
in sales and indirectly in the profits of the company.

➢ The Threats falling under the first quadrant are harmful to the progress of the firm.
➢ Their occurrence probability and also the seriousness is on the higher side. Therefore the
company should take immediate actions against these threats.

➢ The Threats falling under the second quadrant are also very harmful as their seriousness
of these threats is on the higher side, although the probability occurrence is on the lower

➢ The Threats coming under the third quadrant are less serious as compared to the threats in
the first and second quadrant. The company should keep a backup plans for these threats
as this can also affect the profitability of the company.

➢ The Threats under the fourth quadrant are negligible as the probability occurrence and
seriousness both are on the lower side of the matrix.


Data Collection Techniques:

This project consists of two parts.

The first part is a study of the banking industry, SBI 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

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 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.

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 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.

Customer satisfaction surveys help to:

Improve customer, client, or employee loyalty.

React quickly to changes in the market.
Identify and capitalize on opportunities.
Beat the competition.
Retain or gain market share.
Increase revenue.

Reduce costs.

Bank of Travancore are the seven subsidary banks of SBI. As of March 2006, SBI
holding in these banks varies from 74% to 100% , but is likely to decrease in future. SBI
has one of the largest network of ATMs in the Asia Pacific region. Many branches of
State Bank of India are computerized. In places where the Reserve Bank of India, (RBI)
the central bank of India does have an office, SBI carries out many of its functions.
SBI timings vary according to location, for example the Powai, Mumbai branch of State
Bank of India is open between 10.15 am to 2pm (Monday-Friday

You can open a public provident fund (PPF) account at any State Bank of India branch.
PPF accounts are one of the few savings instruments which offer a high tax free interest
rate of 8% per year. All deposits made on or before 5th of a month earn interest for the
entire month. If you deposit a cheque in your PPF account on the 5th of the month, you
will get interest for the month, though your account may be debited at a later date. The
interest is credited to the account at the end of the accounting year in India.

If you know an agent who is registered with that particular branch of State Bank , he will
pay you back, a part of the commission he receives from the bank. So you can get back
0.5% - 0.6% of the amount deposited immediately by cash. Usually larger the amount,
the higher the commission paid back by the agent (it is negotiable) . The pay-in slip for
PPF has 3 sections - depositors copy, agents copy and bank copy. The agents copy has to
be given to the agent and he will give part of the commission. Earlier financial services
firm like Blue-chip in Mumbai, would also give a commission of 0.25% , but they have
stopped in the last 2 years.

The minimum amount that can be invested in one year is Rs 500 and maximum amount is
Rs 70000. This investment has a lock in period of 15 years. No withdrawals are allow till
6 years after account opening and one withdrawal is allowed per year there after. It
offers rebate under section 80C and the interest is tax free under section 10C.

For cash withdrawals, you can either use a withdrawal slip or cheque. If an account is
inactive for a long time, State Bank of India does not charge any fee for reactivation.
However, they have a verification process, which may take a long time. Payment
of income tax, advance tax, sales tax can be done at SBI branches. Foreign currency
drafts can also be obtained at the branches. Since SBI offers a variety of banking
services, their branches are usually very crowded.

State Bank of India has increase home loan interest rates by 25-75 basis points. Also no
fixed rate loans will be available for periods more than 10 years. These changes have
come into effect from March 1, 2006.

SBI Railway Visa Card allows booking of railway tickets online at the Indian Railways
website at zero transaction charges. Users of this credit card can get back up to 10% of
ticket fare as railway points. These points can be redeemed later, like frequent flyer miles
offered by airlines. State Bank of India is the largest issuer of debit cards (Maestro) in

State Bank customers who have to wait a long time to process a bank transaction can
register their complaint through a touch screen device for customer feedback service at
the branch. The information is recorded and processed in the central server. As of March
2006, it is implemented in 10 branches of SBI in Mumbai. When SBI employees go on
strike, the Reserve Bank of India takes over all clearing operations. However, banking
operations are affected since SBI has nearly 30% of the total customers of banks in India.
Cheques/DD drawn on SBI was not cleared due to the strike. All government taxes like
income tax, sales tax, service tax can be paid at any branch of SBI.

State Bank of India has 52 foreign offices in 34 countries including Australia, UK, USA,
