Indusind Bank derives its name and inspiration from the Indus Valley civilization - a culture described by National Geographic as 'one of the greatest of the ancient world' combining a spirit of innovation with sound business and trade practices. Mr. Srichand P. Hinduja, a leading Non-Resident Indian businessman and head of the Hinduja Group, conceived the vision of Indusind Bank - the first of the new-generation private banks in India - and through collective contributions from the NRI community towards India's economic and social development, brought our Bank into being. The Bank, formally inaugurated in April 1994 by Dr. Manmohan Singh, Honorable Prime Minister of India who was then the countrys Finance Minister, started with a capital base of Rs.1,000 million (USD 32 million at the prevailing exchange rate), of which Rs.600 million was raised through private placement from Indian Residents while the balance Rs.400 million (USD 13 million) was contributed by Non-Resident Indians.

Indusind Bank follows a mix of both centralization and decentralization. It manages a balance between the two and it depend on branch to branch for deciding the degree of centralization and decentralization . Although, it has flexibility is its system of operation and no such standard operating procedures are laid out in particular, employee are expected to react and perform as per the situation and use their decision abilities to sort out customer problems. The advantage of centralization is that it lets the top official coordinate organizational activities and keep the organization focused on its goal whereas decentralization promotes flexibility and responsiveness by allowing lower managers to make on the spot decisions. Indusind Bank has a multidivisional structure varies from country to country depending on the type of operations. The integration mechanism that the bank is using in india is that of a liaison Role wherein a specific manager is given responsibilities for coordinating with managers from other subunits.

Indusind Bank has a very rich organizational culture which is appreciated worldwide as it is ranked 8th among the survey of best places to work in, it is also listed as one of the companies wherein the attrition rate is quite low. Regarding the jaipur Branch, the employees share is very cordial relation among themselves which not only enhances the output of individuals but also has bought laurels to the branch winning the award for best branch recently. With completion of 5 year of the branch, the walk- in customers were also offered sweets as part of the banks culture.



Although the antiquated Indian banking system has its roots in the nineteenth century , the character and structure of the system has, however, changed substantially since 1969, when the major bank were nationalized. Prior to nationalization, banking was concentrated only in urban areas. It was clear that a better banking system was needed to promote the economic goals of the new Indian state. Rural markets for Industrial goods could not be developed so long as money lenders charge high rates of interest, which was the main source of rural credit. Moreover, the green revolution depended on farmers finding substantial sources of credit to pay for fertilizers and hybrid seeds.

Since the mid-1970s, there has been a spectacular growth in the number of bank branches and in the size of their deposits and advances. According to experts in banking this transformation has no parallel anywhere in the world. After nationalization, there was also a change in recruitment policy. For the first time, the doors of the banks was opened to everyone, irrespective of family status, caste, community, religion or gender. Recruitment was done on a more systematic basis, with merit assessed by conducting aptitude tests by an external agency in a relatively impartial manner.

As the size of the banking sector increased, the industry became difficult to manage and Computer technology offered a possible solution. In India in the early 1960s, a small number of industrial houses and a few educational, research and development institutions started using computers. During the late 1960s and 1970s, service-oriented industries such as airlines, railways and insurance companies introduced computers in order to improve their functioning and to provide better customer service. However, banks in India did not introduce computers on a large scale because of the fear that these would result in retrenchment and unemployment.


For a long time Indian banks faced very little competition and operated in a protected economy and so no long-term policy or perspective was formulated for the banking sector. Banking sector was simply treated as a part of the public sector. But now, well-computerized foreign banks are beginning to compete seriously with the nationalized banks. They target at the profitable and wealthy part of the market and, in contrast to the nationalized banks, do not recognize any social responsibilities to small account holders or to a rural and semi-urban client.

The banking and financial services Industry in India is in a state of inevitable and rapid growth. The market for banking products and services has become more competitive than ever before. With the steady fall in interest rates over the two years, customers started looking for alternate for savings and investments such as pension funds, mutual funds, life insurance products etc. Furthermore, interest margins and hence revenue opportunities have become very thin which are driving banks and financial services companies to look for lending opportunities where intrinsically the delinquency rates on loans are low and where the risk can be spread across a large base of customers. Simultaneously, a rapidly growing middle class having an enormous appetite to borrow from Banks for a better and improved lifestyle, has given banks and financial services companies an opportunity to finance the demand side of the Economy.

The multinational banks and some of the new private sector banks in the country have entered the Indian market and seized the opportunity very well. The public sector banks and the old private sector banks, who command over 80% market share in the banking industry, must seize the opportunity in a big way and respond aggressively to market demands if the growth in Retial Banking has to be accelerated in the country itself. To be successful in Retail Banking, banks will need to revamp their business model to :[7]

a. Build large volume, highly scalable operation, b. Package and deliver products rapidly in a dynamic market, c. Leverage effectively on multiple delivery channels (branch, internet, ATMs etc.) with a view to contain the cost of operations. d. Build collaborative relationships with providers of related financial products and services and move towards converting the network of bank branches into financial supermarkets.


WHAT IS BANKING? Banking, in traditional sense is the business of accepting deposit of money from public for the purposes of leading and investment. These deposits can have a distinct feature of being withdraw able by Cheques, which no other financial institution can offer. In addition, banks also offer various other financial services, which include Issuing Demand Draft and Traveler Checks Credit Cards Collection of Cheques, Bills of Exchange Custodial Services The business of banking is highly regulated since banks deal with money offered to them by the public and ensuring the safety of the public money is one of the prime responsibilities of any bank. That the way the bank are expected to be expected to be prudent in their lending and investments activities. Every Bank has a compliance Department, which we responsible to ensure that all the services offered by the bank, and the processes followed are in compliance with the local regulation and the Banks corporate policy. [8]

The major regulations and acts that govern the banking business are Banking Regulations Act 1949 Foreign Exchange Management Act 1999 Indian Contract Act Negotiable Instrument Act 1881

Banks lend money either for productive purpose to individuals, firms corporate etc. for buying houses proposes to individuals and others. However banks do not finance any speculative activity. Leading is a risk taking. Having prudent norms for lending should cover the risk . The depositors of bank are also assured of safety of their money by deploying some percentage of deposits in statutory reserves like SLR & CRR.


The regulations like Banking Regulation Act and Reserve Bank of India Act govern the business of banking. It is obligatory on the part of a Bank to invest a fixed proportion known as Statutory Liquidity Ratio (SLR) of their liabilities which include time and term Deposit in certain approved government Securities. Current SLR rate is 25%. A certain proportion- know as Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR)- of the net time and demand liabilities of the bank is also to be placed Reserve Bank of India as cash reserve. This can vary between 3 to 20 percent announced by RBI. Current CRR rate is 6%. Both, SLR & CRR are subject to change by RBI and normally the changes, if any are made between RBI announce its busy season (October-March) and slack season (April-September) credit policy. The objective of CRR & SLR requirement is to minimize the risk of exposure and to make certain portion of fund available in liquid form at a point of time. Reserve Bank also uses this as a monetary tool to monitor and control money [9] supply to the economy.

The Treasury Division of a bank, being the custodian of all fund of the bank, manages and maintains CRR and SLR on regular basis. Dealers in the treasury sell and purchase securities eligible under SLR portfolio to maximize the yield on these statutory investment.

Bank basically offer two types of deposits: Demand Deposits Term Deposits

1. DEMAND DEPOSITS Demand Deposit by its nature, are payable as and when the depositor makes the demand to pay. There are two types of account, which are demand deposits in nature, these are: Saving Account Current Account

Any amount can be deposited at these accounts at any time. The amount deposited or apart of it can be withdrawn any time by using cheques. However bank normally stipulates a minimum balance to be maintained in these accounts.

Saving Account is offered only to individuals and non-trading entries. Banks also pay interest on saving Accounts. The interest is paid on the minimum balance held in the RBI determines the rate of interest on saving s Account.

Current Account can be opened in the name of individual any firm or a company. No interest is paid on the balance held in this account. [10]

2. TERM DEPOSITS Term deposits are the deposits where a fixed sum of money is kept for a specific period and the money is repaid only on expiry of the period. The interest offered on these deposits depends on the period of the deposit bank accepts term deposits for a [period of 15 days to 10 years. However, our bank accepts deposits for a maximum period of 5 years. Banks are free to determine the interest rates on such deposits. The interest is normally paid out of every quarter. But at the request of the customer, the interest can be paid out of every month but at the discounted rate of interest. Three most common form of term deposits are: Fixed deposits Reinvestment deposits Recurring deposits

Fixed deposits are those where the customers deposit fixed amount for a certain period and interest on it is paid by the bank every quarter. On expiry of certain terms, the principal amount is paid back to the customer or the deposit is renewed at the request of the customer.

Reinvestment deposit is similar to a fixed deposit with the difference that the interest payable every quarter is compounded with the principal amount. In effect the interest on reinvestment deposit is paid along with the principal on maturity only.

Recurring deposit is the deposit where certain amount say Rs. 1000 is deposited every monthly installment for a certain period ranging from 6 months to 5 years. The total amount deposited over the period accrued interest on maturity.


Payment of deposit before maturity In case a term deposit is to be paid before its due date, a penal interest is charged. As per RBI guidelines, banks are now free to determine to the penal rate. However, a penal rate is advised to the customer at the time of opening an account. As per the Income Tax Act, if the total amount of all deposits of customer, including the interest on it, with a bank branch exceeds Rs. 20,000/- no deposit or any interest should be paid in cash, it can be credited in the account of the depositor.

TDS on interest earned on term deposits (other than recurring deposit) are subject to tax deduction at source if the total interest earned during the Financial Year (April- March) by the customer on his /her deposits at branch exceeds Rs. 5000.


Currently, banking in India is generally fairly mature in terms of supply, product range and reacheven though reach in rural India still remains a challenge for the private sector and foreign banks. In terms of quality of assets and capital adequacy, Indian banks are considered to have clean, strong and transparent balance sheets relative to other banks in comparable economies in its region. The Reserve Bank of India is an autonomous body, with minimal pressure from the government. The stated policy of the Bank on the Indian Rupee is to manage volatility but without any fixed exchange rate-and this has mostly been true.

With the growth in the Indian economy expected to be strong for quite some time-especially in its services sector-the demand for banking services, especially retail banking, mortgages and investment services are expected to be strong. One may also expect M&As, takeovers, and asset sales. In March 2006, the Reserve Bank of India allowed Warburg Pincus to increase its stake in Kotak [12]

Mahindra Bank (a private sector bank) to 10%. This is the first time an investor has been allowed to hold more than 5% in a private sector bank since the RBI announced norms in 2005 that any stake exceeding 5% in the private sector banks would need to be vetted by them.

Currently, India has 88 scheduled commercial banks (SCBs) - 28 public sector banks (that is with the Government of India holding a stake), 29 private banks (these do not have government stake; they may be publicly listed and traded on stock exchanges) and 31 foreign banks. They have a combined network of over 53,000 branches and 17,000 ATMs. According to a report by ICRA Limited, a rating agency, the public sector banks hold over 75 percent of total assets of the banking industry, with the private and foreign banks holding 18.2% and 6.5% respectively.


1. Banking sector entering newer areas like wealth management, private banking, doorstep banking, business banking, excel banking, electronic banking, credit cards, investment advisory services, merchant establishment, phone banking, net banking etc. 2. Indian banks in a war game to acquire and retain customers. 3. Indian middle class being reached out and wooed by banks. 4. Indian middle class and financial sector beginning to dream together and wave a new bond of relationships. 5. Financial products like mutual funds, life policies, non life policies competing with traditional banking products. 6. Banking sector fully geared for helping Indian middle class realize its dreams. 7. Banking sector in good health with low nonperforming assets and prudential accounting standards in place.


8. Indian banking sector entering the phase of consolidation (2nd phase of reform) on the way to acquire global size.


What Is Retail Banking? Retail banking refers to banking in which banks undergo transactions directly with consumers, rather than corporations or other banks. Services offered include savings and checking accounts, mortgages, personal loans, debit cards, credit cards and so forth.

Changing Environment
The most important factor shaping todays world is globalization. Companies are instantly in search of low-cost markets. Technology is driving growth in production and productivity and competition is stiff.

Secondly, rapid development in communication technology has lead to greater integration of global financial markets, in turn boosting private capital flows and foreign direct investment.

A third factor is the increasing share of emerging markets economies in world trade. Fallout of globalization is the increase in the volatility of markets. This calls for the adoption standards and global benchmarks.

India has adopted international prudential norms and practices with regard to capital adequacy, income recantation, provisioning requirements and supervision and these norms have been progressively tightened over the years. There has been a steady decline in the level of resources preemption from the banking system in the form of CRR (cash reserve ratio) and SLR (statutory liquid ratio). Interest rates in various segments of financial markets have been deregulated in a phased manner.

Opportunities Of Retail Banking

Retail banking has immense opportunity in a growing economy like India. As the growth story gets unfolded in India, retail banking is going to emerge a major drive. How does the world view us? A.T. Kearney, a global management consulting firm, recently identified India as the second most attractive retail destination of 30 emergent markets. [15]

The risk of the Indian middle class is an important contributory factor in this regard. The percentage of middle to high income Indian households is expected to continue rising. The younger population not only wields increasing purchasing power, but as far as acquiring personal debt is concerned, they are perhaps more comfortable than previous generations. Improving consumer purchasing power, coupled with more liberal attitude towards personal debt, is contributing to Indian banking retail segment.

First, retention of customer is going to be a major challenge. According to a research by Reich Held and Sasser in the Harvard Business Review, 5% increase in customer retention can increase profitability by 35% in banking business, 50% in insurance and brokerage and 125% in the customer in credit card market. Thus, banks need to emphasize retaining and increasing market share.

Second, rising indebtedness could turn out to be a cause for concern in the future. Indias position, of course, is not comparable to that of the developed world where household debt as a proportion of disposable income is much higher. Such a scenario creates high uncertainty. Expressing concern about the high growth witnessed in the consumer credit segment the Reserve Bank has, as temporary measure, put in place risk containment measure and increased the risk weight from 100% to 125% in the case of consumer credit personal loans and credit cards (Midterm review of Annual Policy, 20042005).

Third, information technology possesses both opportunities and challenges. Even with ATM machines and internet banking, many consumers still prefer the personal touch of their neighborhood branch bank. Technology has made it possible to deliver services through the bank network, [16]

providing instant update to creating accounts and rapid movement of money for stock transfer. However, this dependency on the network has brought IT departments additional responsibilities and challenges in managing, maintaining and optimizing the performance of retail banking network. Illustratively, ensuring that bank products and service are available, at all times, and across the entire organization is essential for todays retail banks to generate revenues and remain competitive. Beside, there are network management challenges, whereby keeping these complex, distributed become essential. Specific challenges include ensuring that account transaction application run effectively between the branch office and data centers.

Fourth, KYC issues and money laundering risks in retail banking is yet another important issue. Retail lending is often regarded as a low risk area for money laundering because of the perception of the sums involved. However, completion for client may also lead to KYC procedures being waived in the bid for new business. Banks must also consider seriously the type of identification documents they will accept & other process to be completed.

Future Of Retail Banking 1. Share of retail credit expected to grow from 22% to 36%. 2. Dramatic changes expected in the credit portfolio of banks in the next five years. 3. Housing will continue to be the biggest growth segment followed by auto loans. 4. Banks rieed to expand and diversify by focusing on the non urban segment as well as varied income and demographic groups. 5. Rural areas offer tremendous potential to which needs to be exploited.

Figure 4.1

Below 20 years 19% 15% 26% 40% Between 20 and 40 years Between 40 and 60 years Above 60 years

From the above analysis, I can analyze that normally people in the age group 20-60 maintain their relations with multinational or private sector banks. While, people in the age group of below 20 years & above 60 years are somewhat indifferent. [49]

Figure 4.2 4% 13% 36% Student Service 47% Business Other

From the above figure, we can analyze that the major proportion of the customers of the multinational banks and the private sector banks are from the service class and the business class. So the potential market segment of the customers of the various banks comprises of the services and the business class.

From the above results, it can be analyzed that people whose income is above two lakhs normally go for relations with multinational banks or some private sector banks. While people who are dependent prefer public sector banks.


FACTORS AFFECTING THE BANKING HABITS OF PEOPLE The banking habits were studied on the basis of six features included in the questionnaire. The respondents were asked to rate each of these features on a scale of five factors namely lowest, low, average, high and highest. The following results were obtained for each of these factors.

1. Location
Table 4.6 Location Frequency Valid Average High Highest Total 11 50 39 100 Percent 11 50 39 100 Valid Percent 11 50 39 100 Cumulative Percent 11 50 100

Figure 4.4

50 50 39 40 30 20 10 0 Average High Highest 11 Location

From the above figure , it can be said that people normally rated the factor Location as high. Thus it can be concluded that location is one of the most important factor for people while choosing a particular bank. [52]

2. Ambience

Figure 4.5

60 50 51 34 Ambience 3 8

30 20 10 0

From the above figure, It is a pretty clear that people rate the factor ambience as average or high. The reason behind rating this factor as normally average is that people told that they hardly have the time to go to the bank. Through, it does have an effect on people but is not of much importance to them so they rated it as average. [53]

3. Timings
Table 4.8 Timings Frequency Valid lowest low Average High Highest Total 1 4 58 36 1 100 Percent 1 4 58 36 1 100 Valid Percent 1 4 58 36 1 100 Cumulative Percent 1 5 63 99 100

From the above figure, it is evident that the factor timings is rated as average by people. Many people rated this factor as average because they think that all the banks have the same timings. Therefore it is not of much importance to people while choosing particular bank.

Most of the respondents rated this factor as high. The reason behind such rating was that most of the respondents felt that they were not provided with the right information about the products. So they wanted that they should be provided with the right information and should not be deceived.


7. Service

This factor was rated by the respondents as the highest. Almost every respondent rated Service as highest they felt that once they use any product of a bank then the services which are provided along with the product effect the relationship of the customers with that particular bank. On the basis of the results obtained from the survey it can be clearly stated that Service is the most important criteria for choosing a bank.
