INTRODUCTION
Savings accounts are accounts maintained by retail
financial institutions that pay interest but cannot be used directly as
money in the narrow sense of a medium of exchange (for example, by
writing a cheque). These accounts let customers set aside a portion of
their liquid assets while earning a monetary return. For the bank, money
in a savings accounts may not be callable immediately and in some
jurisdictions, does not incur a reserve requirement, freeing up cash from
the banks vault to be lent out with interest.

The other major type of accounts is deposit account are transactional


account (checking account or current account by country), money
market account, and the time deposit. To open a savings account,
simply go down to your local bank with proper identification and ask to
open an account.

Because saving accounts almost pay lower interest rates than Treasury
bills and certificates of deposit, they should not be used for long-term
holding period. Their main advantages are liquidity and superior rates
compared to checking accounts. Most modern savings accounts offer
access to funds through visit to a local branch, over the interest and
through automated teller machines.

Research And Method Of Data


Collection
Research methodology implies a systematic attempt by the
researcher to obtain knowledge about subject understudy. This is
systematic way to show the problem and it is important
components of the study without which a research may not able
obtain the facts and figures from employees.

Research instrument used for collection of information is


interviews, survey & observation. As this research is exploratory
so it includes the study of subject through the observation &
surveys. Although miscellaneous reports are also used.

33

34

Findings

People prefer to deal with SBI the most than other banks, the
reason being it is a public bank and it is located in every nook and corner
of the city.

According to analysis that majority of people are in favour of public


banks in terms of charges, the reason is their blind faith upon these banks
regarding charges.

According to analysis, majority of people agreed that only public


banks provide the zero balance account facility to low income level group
of customers and in private banks one has to maintain an average
quarterly balance.

Majority of customers use net banking only for making bill


payments. Thus, they do not avail other services offered in net banking.

Most of the customers believe, Private Banks provide better


customer services than public banks just to attract more and more
customers.

Public banks do mass banking and private banks do class


banking.

35

36

Hypothesis
A hypothesis is a tentative statement about the relationship
between two or more variables.

From the above data analysis of capital budgeting of bank of


India, some points are observed, collected & predicted.
I have to observed that Axis Bank maintain their Saving
Accounts by using some processes
There are some services which are provided regarding the
Saving accounts.
Provide better customer service.
If the management should make a careful decisions whether a
particular project is economically acceptable and within the
specified limits of investments to be made during a specified
period of time then it should be effective for organizations.

37

38

Limitations
1)

The study was based on a very modest sample size, hence


cannot be called as a representation of the views and opinion of
the majority.

2)

The conclusion arrived at are based on very less observation.


Positive performance of working capital will reflect on the
financial health.

Conclusion
The topic A DETAILED ANALYSIS OF SAVING ACCOUNT IN AXIS
BANK LTD. AND ITS COMPARISON WITH OTHER BANKS [ SBI AND
HDFC ] is basically concerned about the saving products offered by
AXIS BANK. I have gone through these entire saving product, their
features and services during my research. I have also compared these
saving products of Axis Banks with HDFC Bank ANDSTATE BANK OF
INDIA. This comparison includes some common basis of differentiation
through which evaluation has been done. I have also used a
QUESTIONNAIRE for comparative analysis, which has been filled by the
customers just to know what they think about the banks services and
facilities given to them. I have found very interesting results from the
research.

41

42

Suggestions

The most important threat which appears in Axis Bank Lucknow


are the
competitors in which the major competitor is State Bank of India,
having many branches in Lucknow itself and thats why it is more
convenient for the people to approach that bank. Thus Axis Bank should
expand the number of branches.

In terms of charges also, majority of customers are in favour of


SBI. Thus Axis Bank should adopt flexible approach in charges and the
charges should be charged according to the customers income,
competition and other factors so that they do not loose any genuine
customer due to these unfair charges.

According to my analysis, majority of customers said that they use


AXIS
BANKS ATM the most for cash withdrawal because its location covers
almost all the areas of the city. Thus, Axis bank can use this feature as a
major tool for advertising and promotion purposes.

Providing best customer service is also one of the advantages for


the bank which can be used for promotion purposes so that more and
more people attracts towards the bank.
