With the current fiscal drawing to a close, it is time to briefly recapitulate the events that
influenced the Banks performance in 2008-09 and in the light of the same and
forthcoming challenges, visualize the outlook for 2009-10 and set forth the parameters
for our business growth in the New Year.
1. Current Economic Scenario and Outlook for 2009-10
2008-09 has witnessed considerable turmoil in markets and economies overseas
leading to a global economic slump. It was inevitable that the economic slowdown
would percolate to our economy as well. Indian economy has slowed down in the latter
half of the year, with several industries, notably export-oriented industries (IT & ITES,
Real Estate, Gem & Jewellery, Textiles & Ready Made Garments, Auto & Auto
Components) being affected by the developments abroad. However, the Government
and the RBI, have in response to the situation, initiated a host of measures which are
expected to revive the economy. Inflation has eased considerably. The RBI has also
periodically cut the key interest rates & CRR and also initiated several other measures
including easing of E.C.Bs., which has ensured adequate liquidity into the system. With
commodity prices in decline and oil prices also coming down steadily to around $50 a
barrel at present, the economy is well poised to weather the storm.
Amidst all these developments, India’s banking sector has admirably withstood the
impact of the global crisis and most of the banks have posted good numbers for and
upto the third quarter ending December 2008. ASCB deposits grew by around 21%
YOY while credit growth moderated to 18% YOY during the current year and NPAs,
although they may be a shade higher this year in absolute terms, are likely to be within
manageable proportions. While, for better credit off-take, RBI kept on reducing Reverse
Repo Rate, Repo Rate and CRR after September 2009, a number of measures on
restructuring and rescheduling were also taken towards NPA management.
The Return on Assets (ROA) of most Indian banks is also above 1%, which compares
very well with their global counterparts. This year, however, the Interest Spread is
expected to come under pressure.
For FY 2010, depending upon monsoons and external economic conditions, we can
expect 2.5-3.5% growth in agriculture (including allied activities), about 5.0% growth in
industry, and about 7.5% growth in services sector. Based on these assumptions,
ASCB deposits and non-food advances are expected to grow at around 17% and 18%
respectively. Driven by strong internal demand, the slew of measures initiated by the
Government and the RBI to revive the economy, increased Government spending,
especially in infrastructure, FDI inflows, as also the comfortable situation on the
agriculture front, and the gradual recovery of economies abroad, the Indian economy
according to the Central Statistical Organisation is expected to post a growth in GDP of
around 6% in 2009-10. Although, this is lower than the 9% growth we have been
achieving for the past few years, India will continue to be the second fastest growing
economy in the world after China and the growth story remains largely intact.
2. SBI’s performance during 2008-09
The first 11 months of the year have witnessed a YTD growth in deposits of 30.03% (as
against 18.58 % in February 2008). Deposit growth has been robust so much so that
the month of December 2008 witnessed an unprecedented growth of Rs.27,826 crores
in deposits against the ASCB’s growth of Rs. 21412 crores i.e. 130% of the ASCB
growth. Even in the month February 2009, as against ASCB growth of Rs.67,063
crores, the Bank has grown by Rs.24,920 crores (37% of the ASCB growth). This is an
indication of people’s tilt towards SBI brand and we have an opportunity to take
advantage of this.
In advances, the growth during the first 11 months of the current fiscal has been to the
tune of 21.57% and we are likely to end the year with a growth of around 23%-25%. In
the month of February 2009, as against ASCB growth of Rs.31,752 crores, the Bank
has grown by Rs.12,275 crores (38% of the ASCB growth). Both in deposits and
advances, SBI has performed better than the industry, thereby gaining significant
market share.
Some of the other highlights so far during 2008-09 are as under:
 The Bank’s global ranking went up to 57 from 70 in the previous year and 107 in
the year before. Can we take this ranking even higher in the next twelve
 The CBS roll-out across the Bank has been completed. All our branches &
ATMs and those of our Associates, aggregating over 26,000 in all, are on the
Core Banking network, the largest such network in the world.
 The Bank has opened as many as 638 new branches during the current year till
February 2009. This is in addition to the 965 new branches opened during 2007-
08 i.e. more than, 1600 new outlets in 24 months which is a record in itself.
 The Bank has added over 25,000 new recruits to its cadres during 2008-09 in
one of the largest recruitment exercises ever seen and this recruitment by the
Bank in such large numbers, at a time when the financial services sector the
world over is witnessing retrenchment and lay-offs is perceived as a large
positive by analysts, our customers and the general public.
 Savings Bank deposits has gone up by 27% from Rs. 1,46,762 crores in
December 2007 to Rs. 1,85,799 crores in December 2008.
 Advances to large Corporates has grown by 47% YOY in 9 months ended
December 2008
 Auto loans have grown by 32% and Education loans by 47%. In Auto loans, we
are the largest lender in terms of number of vehicles financed during the financial
 During the third quarter of 2008-09, State Bank Group achieved the milestone of
10000 ATMs.
 Enlarged covering of Centralised Processing Centres (RACPC, SMECCC,
TFCPC, CAC, LCPC, SARC etc.) and their stabilisation across the country have
made the entire processing of applications efficient thereby improving
productivity and also freed up the staff for focusing on maintaining customer
service and marketing. However, we need to revise productivity norms of all
CPCs in all areas too. We should also try to reduce the Turn Around Time for the
Home Loans sanctions to 5 days.
 Scaling up of the national level alliances with India Post, Drishtee Foundation,
Zero Micro Finance And Savings Support Foundation (all BCs) & ITC (BF) has
started benefitting the Bank in Business development.
 During the past twelve months, the Bank has won a number of awards as

≈ Best Executive award to the Chairman by Asia Money.

≈ Awards by “the Banker Magazine” for “Retail Core Banking” and “Overall
Retail Technology Product”. SBI is the only Indian bank to receive these

All this is significant. And all this would not have been possible without the involvement
of everyone. And I mean everyone, people at the branches and other offices, leaders
across the organisation, people in the difficult centres, those interfacing with the
customers and those running maintenance services. To all, my warm thanks and
heartiest congratulations.

Obviously, what we have achieved is the tip of the iceberg. Just the beginning of
renaissance in a resurgent SBI. What we can do and what is available in the business
environment is far, far, more. There are opportunities galore even in a down turn. We
need eyes to spot it. There is huge opportunity to gain market share, to expand
customer relationship and to prepare for the upturn. So, this year, even if GDP growth
has slowed down, we shall endeavor to do more. We have showed that we can excel
and be market leaders in multiple disciplines. We need to show that we can do much
more, much better. With more than 25,000 fresh new blood in the organization, with
1500 new branches and more to come, with new business processes and technology,
new business models and products, improved productivity and increased
empowerment, the time to go for it is now.
3. The Budget Exercise for 2009-10
The above developments in SBI augur very well for the immediate future and 2009-10,
to my mind, should be a take-off year for the Bank, a year during which, we should be
able to grow faster than our peers and increase the distance between us and our
nearest competitors. Or simply put, during 2009-10, we must grow faster than the
industry and regain market share lost in earlier years. Given the commitment, zeal and
outstanding efforts of our staff at all levels, the huge additional capacity we have
created in terms of branches, I.T. Infrastructure and human resources, and the present
scenario, when the economy is on the road to recovery and will throw up exciting
opportunities, I am sure that the Bank will be able to far outpace the growth of the
banking industry and we need to accordingly set for ourselves higher than normal
benchmarks under all parameters.

The other area I would like to touch upon in these Policy Guidelines is the need for
each Business Group to set not only business budgets but also activity budgets, which
will spell out the various activities under each head which will help in achieving the
business budget – for example under Home Loans, the number of home loan
campaigns we propose to have, the strategies we propose to adopt for marketing home
loans, the number of tie-ups with builders etc. all, need to be spelt out, quantitatively
and qualitatively.
The Group Heads and the Business Unit Heads will, therefore, need to spell out the
activity budgets for each type of activity with further granularity brought in at each level
by the Circle CGMs, the network GMs, the R.B.O.’s etc. While setting the business
budgets, targets should be set not only in quantum or amount but in terms of number of
accounts, number of tie-ups, number of cards to be issued etc.
We also need to put in place a system for measuring efforts made, as it sometimes
happens that strenuous efforts though made, are not reflected in achievements,
whereas at other times, budgets are achieved fortuitously though much efforts are not
made. I would like all the Group Heads to, therefore, put in place a system for
measurement of efforts which can be recorded and monitored. As the nature of activity
of each business is different, the format will have to be designed by each Business
Group according to its requirements as indicated in annexure-I. This is a new dimension
that I want to include, not only in deference to a large number of good workers who go
unappreciated, but also because it will force us to think, get valuable insight and help in
strategy building.
4. A significant achievement of the financial sector reforms has been the marked
improvement in the financial health of commercial Banks in terms of capital adequacy,
profitability, asset quality and risk management. However, recent downturn of the global
economy has posed a major threat in business growth as well as maintaining asset
quality at the desired level. We have to be more customers centric and service oriented.
While, I spelt out the focus areas in customer service in page 6 below, it may be
mentioned that all available opportunities are required to be grabbed to increase our
business and revenues by diversifying into various other activities. The challenges
before banks are new and varied. Our driving force would continue to be best customer
services, personalized products and efficient marketing. Efficient service delivery
mechanism coupled with speed would matter in grabbing the business. We shall target
a higher growth of business during FY2010 also with the specific target of increasing
our market share in deposits by 100 bps. For deriving the best results out of the
business growth, we have to focus on the following important areas:

i. Net Interest Income

With the likely softening of interest rates, there will be more pressure on the
margins. For insulating ourselves from the current downswing in the economy, it
is necessary that we bring about a change in the mix of the advances portfolio
keeping in view the growth prospects of different sectors and the yield we are
getting. In any interest rates scenario, our efforts should be to optimize Yield on
Advances and minimize Cost of Deposits for getting maximum margin.
Profitability should always remain the guiding factor in improving business
volumes. Operating Units should monitor NII (post TPM) for both the deposits
and advances try to maximize it by a proper mix of business. However, proper
business mix has to be decided alongwith clear understanding of the underlying
risk of credit.
ii. Fee Income

For becoming an efficient and profitable Bank, we need to improve fee income
and related ratios. Apart from targeting a growth of at least 40% at the whole
Bank level, we should also target Other Income to Operating Income Ratio at
42% (at present it is 32%). Higher growth of income from cross selling of
financial products, technology products and other potential areas like processing
Fee, BG, LC, Govt. commission should be targeted. Leakages and concessions
should be checked. New activities to be explored for garnering more fee income,
Online bills payment, Gold ETF, NEFT at all branches, Demat & Trading
accounts’ Financial Planning & Advisory services, Mobile Banking services are a
few examples. For a better growth, unit level monitoring and strategies have to
be in place. Each activity for increasing fee income is required to be metered and
monitored separately on the lines of a product. CAG, MCG and branches under
Super Circle of Excellence should accept challenging targets of fee income

iii. Budgeting

Budgeting exercise should be very comprehensive and meaningful at all the

levels right from the branch level. All areas of business, income and expenditure
should be covered with maximum possible granularity. Business budget should
be supplemented with the Activity Budget also based on the activities/strategies
which are to be undertaken for achieving the business targets/sub-targets.

iv. Overheads

Huge growth of overheads, as much as 60% in some of the Circles is an area of

serious concern. It is apparent that the system of analysing/monitoring/control
over branch overheads by the controllers and other higher officials has taken a
back seat. A target of not more than 5% growth in overheads over March 2009
level should be set for all the branches and offices. This is the average for the
Bank and would obviously differ in individual cases. Branches with more than
30% growth in 2008-09 should be given ‘no growth’ budget next year. Moreover,
unusual growth of overheads at any branch/offices needs to be examined from
all angles. Correct classification of overhead items is also an area which requires
proper attention. Controllers should ensure that branches/offices are correctly
classifying the overheads and no item which can be classified under any sub-
head is unnecessarily classified under “Miscellaneous Expenses”.

v. Cost of Deposits

While the operating units have no control over the rates of interest on different
maturities, they should control the Cost of Deposits by consistent growth of
current & savings bank deposits. Continuous and steep fall of Current Accounts
balances during the current year have adversely impacted CASA ratio of the
Bank and the Cost of Deposits. It is necessary that specific targets separately for
current & savings bank accounts be drawn and weekly growth of these deposits
be tracked by the controllers very meticulously. Loss of business should be
monitored through closure & dormancy of accounts. Existing add-ons to CA &
SB accounts based on average balance should be reviewed and scope
enhanced to increase coverage. Suitable strategies should be devolved for
consistent growth of CASA deposits with a view to reduce Cost of Deposits to
the maximum possible.

CMP, Institutional deposits, Trust accounts, Govt. accounts should be

aggressively canvassed and marketed. Relationship Managers being placed for
the new Financial Institutions Business Unit (FIBU) for targeting large financial
institutions like Mutual Funds, Insurance companies and other NBFCs. Special
emphasis should be given on garnering their Cash management services.
Current and savings accounts of CEOs of companies and their spouses should
be canvassed in a concerted manner. Relationship banking network should be
developed for procuring more CASA deposits. Synergy between different
business groups and roles should be created and exploited.

vi. Risk Management

Everyone should be aware that Bank’s Capital is scarce and for maintaining the
Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) at the level as per GOI / RBI / Central Board
stipulations, we will have to take steps for credit risk management so that with
the growth of credit, we could have the minimum possible risk weights and
resultantly maximum possible CAR. Data Quality should be improved by the
operating units, which is very important in conservation of Capital. Need for
prevention of frauds should be emphasized at all levels for reducing the amount
of operating risk due to frauds. Also all out efforts should be made to ensure that
all borrowers enjoying credit limits of more than Rs.5 crores get rated by
designated external credit rating agencies for deriving full benefit of Basel II.

vii. Quality of Assets – existing and fresh

The meltdown of the world economy and the consequent slow down of Indian
economy will have an adverse impact on the business and profit of Indian
companies also. Due to this, some of the companies may be under pressure in
servicing Bank’s loan. We have to be cautious and should very closely monitor
the Special Mention Accounts as soon as these are classified as such. All
measures should be taken from the beginning to prevent the account turning out
to be NPA.

viii. Customer Service

Customers have come in large numbers to SBI in 2008-09. How do we ensure

that we retain these customers and improve acquisition of new customers? This
is possible only when customers feel a sense of belonging with the Bank. We
must ensure that all our staff display customer centricity and genuine service
orientation in their interactions with customers whether at branches or
administrative offices. There must be ownership of customers at all levels and a
willingness to respond to him positively and courteously when he is seeking
information. Focus should be on customer service at the counters together with
good ambience, upkeep and maintenance. This should be closely monitored by
the controllers and other functionaries visiting the branches. Also customer
service should be a part of performance assessment matrices. Moreover, the
processes at the SMECC need to be streamlined so that the objective for which
these have been set up is met expeditiously.

The grievance resolution mechanism in SBI has been appreciated by the

regulators including the Directorate of Public Grievances and the RBI. We
however need to bring down the average period for redress of grievances from
about 12 days at present to less than 5 days. Customers are most happy when
their grievances are dealt with at the first level of contact i.e. the branches. Our
staff are adequately empowered to respond to most customer grievances. They
should be encouraged to resolve customers’ problems at their level and if
necessary to recommend compensation to customers for lapses in service. If any
new process or empowerment will help, please let me know.

ix. Focus on High Networth Individuals (HNI)

There has to be adequate focus on HNIs. Financial Planning and Advisory

services especially focusing on HNIs is being extended to more branches.
Products designed for HNIs should be aggressively marketed. Relationship
Managers (Personal Banking) and Customer Relationship Executives should
target this business and their performance, in this regard, should be monitored
by the controllers.

x. Migration of transactions to Alternate Channels

Concerted efforts are required to migrate our urban/metro customers (at least) to
alternate banking channels to reduce our transaction costs. This will give us
multifold benefits of reduction in transaction cost, avoiding congestion in branch
premises and improvement in customer service at the branches. Targets should
be given for this and monitored.
xi. Cost Control & ROE

Under the current scenario, higher deposits growth (particularly TDRs) without
corresponding credit growth and increased, both fixed and variable, costs are
putting pressure on profitability. The only way to ensure profitability is to focus on
efficiency even while targeting growth. In the long term, the leaders will be those
who consistently deliver on 'Return on Equity' (ROE); which is the true driver of
shareholder value. We should make use of the current environment to fine-tune
our strategies and peg ourselves to ROE. Benchmarking and improving on cost-
to-income ratio will help us drive efficiency while targeting growth. 3 per cent
reduction in cost-to-income ratio translates itself in to a 1 per cent increase in
ROE. Hence, we have to target a decline of 3% in Cost to Income Ratio from
March 2009 level. For this, the growth in controllable expenses such as repairs
and maintenance, electricity and gas, travelling and halting allowance as also
medical expenses has to be in focus. There should be strict control on local
purchases of stationery items and in placement of indents. Miscellaneous
expense is an area which requires closer control and monitoring. Each profit/cost
centre should strive to contain the overheads.

7. With the sole motive of improving employees’ satisfaction within the organization,
we have been recognizing their efforts in exploiting new emerging business
opportunities by various means of reward & recognition schemes. It is the motivation
and enthusiasm of employees that have turned around the declining trend of the Bank’s
market share and given thrust to Bank’s growth momentum. Number of HR initiatives
was taken during the current year and the positive impacts are before us in the form of
better business and increased profits. Improving “Competitiveness” and “Customer
Centricity” at all levels across the Bank are required to be continued for sustaining
Market leadership in the ever dynamic competitive scenario. Transformation exercise
through communication in the form of ‘Parivartan’, ‘Internal Conclaves’ which enable the
Bank to have the valuable views of the staff at all levels will continue. Circle CMCs
should come forward for brining in the new interactive culture in the Circles.

During the year the “Parivartan” - which was rolled out to over 130,000 officers and
clerks last year - was modified, specially re-designed, and rolled out across the Bank as
“Parivartan II” to over 44,000 subordinate staff including drivers, guards, liftmen,
messengers, etc spreading the message of change, inclusiveness and empowerment.
The design of an ambitious new ‘Parivartan’ programme titled “Citizen SBI”, envisaging
deep rooted, multilevel attitudinal change and transformation in the Organization,
consisting of waves of HR interventions is being finalized and is to be rolled out over the
next two years.
From the Research & Development Fund, the Bank approved setting of a special cell
named “SBI Cell for Public Leadership” in the prestigious Indian School of Business,
Hyderabad – which is currently ranked 15 among Global B Schools. The Cell proposes
to undertake research in the area of Leadership in Public Sector with a special

reference to PSUs functioning in India. The proposed project will not only add to the
prestige of the bank but also set the standards for holistic leadership and effective
change for public sector organizations.

8. I have set out my objectives, targets and expectations for all-round growth of the
Bank. What is needed now is a synergy among all the business groups as well as units
inside the groups to transform our plan into action. All the Operating Units should
ensure that all the measures/initiatives/guidelines mentioned by me are rolled out as
soon as possible and the performance is in line with the year end targets of all the
business and profitability targets. I want all functionaries, CGMs and above to decide for
themselves, what they would like to achieve, quantitatively and qualitatively, in the first
100 days of the new financial year, and to communicate the same to me. The strengths
and capabilities of the groups such as excellent skills in specialised areas, large
resource base, vast network, high level of technology should be fully exploited to
achieve the goals we have set for ourselves. I expect all the staff members of the Bank
to rise to the occasion to fulfil our vision for the year 2009-10. I am confident that
together we can make the difference and make greater strides in order to realise our
cherished dream of achieving excellence in all the areas of banking.
