BACKGROUND OF STUDY

This study is being conducted in three different banks in Odisha, India. Odisha is the 9th largest state by area in India, and the 11th largest by population. Odisha is notable as one of the first Indian states to have tackled its structural problems during the post-1994 Indian economic reforms. The Banking Sector Reforms were initiated in India as part of the overall structured reforms aimed at improving the productivity and efficiency of the economy. Odisha, one of the less developed states in India is situated in the southeast of India. The state is endowed with a vast area under forest, a long coastline and rich mineral deposits. The state has been struggling hard to achieve economic prosperity through its various plans and programmes. Agriculture is the mainstay of Odisha's economy and substance of the life of the people. At the same time efforts are being made to transform Odisha in to a vibrant industrialized state. The data has been analyzed by percentage method. The study is based on the secondary data retrieved from State Level Banking Committee. Private Sector Banks in Odisha has performed well in respect of reducing NPA during the period in 2002 to 2009. Private Banks were not interested to open branches in Odisha. The reason is in an agricultural dominated area the people had hardly any surplus to deposit in banks. There has been a constant increase in total deposits of both Public and Private Sector Banks in Odisha, but the rate of increase is found to be more in urban areas. Although Private Sector Banks do not show uniform performance in respect of recovery of loans in every year but it has performed well in reducing NPA during this period.

Naeem, Akram & Saif (2009) investigated customers satisfaction as the impact of the quality of service on the banking sector and found that the quality of service was proved to be a strong predictor in terms of customer satisfaction. Other researchers, Yavas, Bankenstein & Stuhldreier (2004) found that the quality of service was the root of customer satisfaction in retail bank in Germany. While Ting (2004) found that the quality of service was the antecedent of satisfaction in his research on Malaysia banking. So that, customer service was as an integral part of every facet of banking and determined the future of each banking organization (Mengi, 2009). Kotler (1997) stated that most of customers were no longer willing to accept and tolerate low quality service and performance of their bank partner

Research resulted in the development of a dependable and valid instrument for assessing service delivery of banking services. When the perception of the customer is greater than the reality of the service being provided. Customer perception is everything. If customer does believe that something is lacking in the service, than there is a problem even if the internal stats say otherwise. Perception is the key to all successful service provision (along with actually delivery the service). But often, that perception of service is not articulated by the client. They can be seething with a perceived absence of service that is never brought to the table so the service provider carries on with the miss-conception that all is well.

SOLUTIONS AND DISCUSSION

As the solution, the foreign bankers should actually invest adequately in human and also systemization for the service. This is because good investment would only maintain good relationship with the customer. For example, technology would give greater impact on maintaining relationship. Foreign banks can invest on system that can easily especially the rural areas customers to be their customer. Maybe a system that can connect the rural area to the headquarters. In human aspect, appoint more people to be located in the rural area so that the human and system can be totally applied in the rural area. This will attract more customer and also can retain old customer by applying the concept of You dont have to go far to banks. Second is, bank should invest on the elements of service delivery. What are the elements of service delivery? One of it is the well identified performance standards. For example, if normal expectation for waiting line in bank is 5-15 minutes approximately, a good identified performance of ones bank would make it less than the expectation time. Third would be about how the product or service is expected to evolve over time. Dynamic expectations may be about the changes in support, product, or service needed to meet future business or use environments. For example, banks should follow the latest technological advancement. Maybe banks in Odisha can develop mobile banking so that people at that place can use it widely. Fourth would be the systemization elements is the best predictors of service delivery. Banks should actually invest on this. For example, account opening and

maintenance. Banks should have a systematic system to keep track for customer account and maintain the easiest system of opening the bank account.

Fifth, is train the staff to be always helpful, courteous, and knowledgeable. Do it yourself or hire someone to train them. Talk to them about good customer service and what it is (and isn't) regularly. (Good Customer Service: How to Help a Customer explains the basics of ensuring positive staff-customer interactions.) Most importantly, give every member of the staff enough information and power to make those small customer-pleasing decisions, so he never has to say, "I don't know, but so-and-so will be back at..."

CONCLUSION

The conclusion is, the perception and the expectations of customers and employees itself plays a role in determining the satisfaction level of each bank in each sector. The research is actually to measure whether the service quality that is being delivered is meet the satisfaction of the customer of each sector of banks. Hence, the outcome of the study shows that banks can assess dimensions of service quality to determine the level of services provided and to decide which dimensions need improvement. In order to develop service quality, it is necessary to contact employees frequently and evaluate their service experiences. With the awareness of the service quality dimensions, the banks can judge how well the employee performed on each dimension and management could identify the weaknesses in order to make improvements. By identifying the strengths and weaknesses pertaining to the dimensions of service quality, banks can better allocate resources to provide enhanced service. The design and implementation of service delivery processes plays a key role in the overall competitiveness of modern organizations. For example, Roth and Jackson (1995) provide clear evidence that process capability and execution are major drivers of performance due to their impact on customer satisfaction and service quality. Thus, any study of the efficiency of service organizations must focus on the role of process design and performance.
