Classification of Bank CLASSIFICATION OF BANK

Banks are classified into several types based on the functions they perform. Generally the banks are classified into:

1) Cooperative banks. 2) Investment or industrial banks. 3) Commercial banks. 4) Exchange banks. 5) Land development banks 6) Savings banks. 7) Central banks.

1) Co-operative banks: Co-operative banks are promoted to meet the banking requirement of consumer not only in urban areas but also in the rural areas. The co-operative banks function like commercial banks receiving deposits and leading money. In the rural areas, these banks supply finance to agriculture, while in the urban areas they provide finance to buy consumer goods. They provide short and medium-term loans. They are formed on the co-operative principles and as such they are more service oriented than profit-oriented. The co-operative banks provide credit at lower rates of interest to people of small means, like small cultivators and artisans, petty shopkeepers etc. Co-operative banks function in a given area, while commercial banks function over a wider area not limited by the boundaries of a state or a district. Most of the commercial banks have a number of branches spread over the entire country. Most of these banks function in semi-urban rural areas. In recent years, they are being established in metropolitan centers too, to canter the needs of small income groups. Co-operative banks have been classified into land development banks or land mortgage banks and urban credit-oriented banks. 2. Investment or Industrial Banks Investment banks are those banks which provide funds on longterm for industries. The investment banks are also called industrial banks. These banks have specialized in providing long term loans to industries with

a view to buy plant and machinery. The investment banks obtain funds through share capital, debentures and-term deposit from the public. The industrial or investment banks float bonds for the sake of mobilizing funds to provide funds for industrial corporations. These banks also underwrite or issue new shares and debentures of industrial companies. They also purchase entire issue of new securities of companies and later sell them to the public at a higher price. This type of specialized banking institutions is found in some developed countries like Japan. In England, issue houses or finance companies supply long-term financial needs of industrial concerns.

3.Commercial Banks Commercial banks perform all the business transactions of a typical bank. Commercial banks accept three types of deposits-the savings bank deposits, fixed deposits and current deposits. They accept these deposits, which are repayable on demand or on short notice. As such, they lend or invest only for short durations. They provide funds only for shortterm needs of trade and commerce. The commercial banks confine their activities to day-to-day functions of trade and industry. Since the commercial banks are expected to meet immediate requirements of depositors, they cannot invest credits and overdrafts. The commercial banks render an important service by providing to its customers a simple means of exchange called cheque. With the elaborate and wide use of cheque for settling debts, the use of cash has been much reduced. The cheque is considered as the most developed type of credit instrument. The commercial banks also perform a large number of

agency functions to there for which they charge a commission. The various agency functions are (1) Transfer of funds from one place to another through a medium called Banks Draft (2) Collecting customers stocks and share and safe keeping of valuables of their customers. They discount bills of exchange and such other commercial bills only for short periods. A detailed account of the functions of the commercial banks is discussed in the next chapter.

4. Exchange Banks Exchange banks are known as foreign banks or foreign exchange banks, which provide foreign exchange for import trade. Their main function is to make international payment through the purchase and sale of exchange bills. They convert home currency into foreign currency and vice versa. They discount foreign exchange bills, which are used in foreign trade. The foreign exchange banks function like commercial banks, accepting deposits and lending funds for investment. The values of foreign exchange fluctuate in view of the disequilibria in the demand and supply of foreign exchange for international trade. These banks are required to undertake the business with utmost care. Now days, some commercial banks are undertaking foreign exchange business. 5.Land development Bank

In case of co-operative banks, loans are provided for small duration only. When ever agricultural require investment loans, they have to approach land development banks, where the loans are given on long-term basis. Modern land mortgage banks provides loan terms loan on security of the land to initiate permanent improvements on the land and to buy agricultural machineries. The central land mortgage banks raise resources by means of selling debentures in the money market. Generally, these debentures are bought by big commercial banks and the central bank. The government may also stand as security to the debentures. Separate agricultural banks have been established to under take marketing of agricultural products. In India the land development banks function on co-operative principals. 6. Savings Banks Savings banks are specialized financial institutions established to mobilize savings from the people. Generally they pool the savings of the small incomes of the community. The primary object of the commercial banks is to promote thrift among the low and middle-income groups. The bank also offers interest on these deposits. The depositor is allowed to withdraw from their accounts as and when necessary. All commercial and co-operative banks have provided the saving bank accounts. The post office also runs savings banks all over the country. In fact, post office savings are losing importance with the emergence of co-

operative and commercial banking. The cheque, which is very popular with commercial bank, has been introduced in post office saving banks also. The savings bank business. 7. Central banks: Central bank is an apex bank in the country, which brings the entire banking system unified, controlled and regulated. In fact, the central bank is the main source of an efficient bank system in the country. The monetary policy of a country is formulated and enforced by the central bank. These banks are responsible for monitory responsibility in the country. Central banking is a specialist monetary system under which all other banking institution have to function. It regulates the note issue. The expansion and contraction of note issue are managed by the central bank. It assists the government in the implementation of various economic policies. It maintains not only internal value, but also external value of the currency. The banking system in the country cannot function without the guidance of the central bank. Thus the bank holds importance in the economic system of a country.


RESOURCES OF BANK The funds the bank gives comprise of the following: Paid up capital reserves, Deposits and other accounts borrowing from the RBI are given by the bank. Participation certificates, certificates of deposits, commercial paper, undistributed profit, refinance loans from RBI, NABARD, small scale Industrial Development Bank of India and loans from financial institution. The resources may be stated in the form of a chart as follows: The resources of the bank are used in many ways to earn an income. The resources are used in conformity with the leading policy of the banks. The uses of funds are classified as follows: 1) Call loans and loans repayable in short notice. 2) Investment in government securities.

3) Loans and advances.

1) Call loans & loans repayable in short notice: The call loans are generally given to the stock and share brokers, discount houses and to the stock exchanges. As every bank deposits, which may be withdrawn without notice, and the cash balance in the banks vaults and balances with other banks may not be enough for meeting such demands, money lent in the form of call loans and loans repayable on short notice acts as the second line of defense. As earlier stated, cash reserve with the RBI acts as the first line of defense. In the distribution of assets, these to items are considered to be the safe items. Since these loans earn interest, it is also income-earning assets, while the money kept in reserve bank does not any income. In India owing to absence of a well-established money market, the surplus funds are invested in short government securities. However, there is inter bank lending in cities like Bombay and Calcutta and call money rate is 10%. Investment of Indian banks in the form of money at call short notice is very insignificant.

2) Investment in government security: Investment in government security is a statutory obligation. Since the demand for funds for economic development by the

government is increasing. It has been increased from 34% to 38.5% during the period of 3 decades. Private sector banks a small portion of resources in the form of shares and debenture of private companies. The state bank of India and national banks are not authorized to invest in the shares of joint stock companies. The investment policy of bank is guided by the following factor: Safety: the banks look for safety of investment as they can not

afford to lose the money they invest. If they invest in shares and stock in private companies, they are bond to lose, since their prices are not remain stable for a long period. But in the case of government securities, the rate of interest though low, remains stable, so Bankers prefer government securities to share and stock of industries. Marketability: The government securities are easily marketable while the shares and stocks of companies are not so. Investment in government security is considered as third line of defense. If the bank faces any crisis, it can sell government securities to the reserve bank without increasing any loss. In an individual decide to sell the shares and stocks in the exchange, he may gate a higher price or incur loss. Liquidity: Liquidity means converting an asset in to cash

without any loss. The government bonds have a ready market but it is not so in the case of shares and stocks of private company. The company, which issues stocks and shares will not buy them back.

It has to be sold in the share market where the price is not guaranteed. He may not find buyer for his shares. Hence the shares and stock of companies are not liquid. Income and yield: The banker must also aim at getting a fair and stable return on the capital outlay. He should not look for high yield. The speculative securities may bring high yield for some period but not permanently. He should not think investing in such speculative securities. He should not aim at high yield at the cost of safety. The yield depends upon the market price at time of purchase, the rate of interest that the securities carry, its price at time of deduction of taxes if any. The securities yield different rates of profit when purchase at a discount.

3) Loans and advances:

Loans and advances are considered to be important banks to deploy the finds. They are of several kinds; cash credit, overdrafts, demand loans, term loans, packing credit, export bill purchased discounted, advances against important bills etc. cash credit is a simple lone where cash is given against the promissory note. It is essentially a drawing account against loan granted by the bank and is operated in the same way as a currant account on which overdraft is sanctioned. In Indian, cash is one of the most popular forms of loan. Cash is grant against hypothecation of goods, book debts and personal security.

CLASSIFICATION OF SECURITIES It is a statutory obligation on the part of the banks to invest a certain percentage of deposits in the form of government securities. As the deposits in the commercial banks swells, the amount of money invested in government securities also increases. The investment of banks in central and state loans and treasury bills increased from Rs.9, 400 crore in 1979 to Rs. 13, 800 corer in1983 and to Rs. 1, 04, 902 corer in 1992-1993. in recent years, there has been increase in the rate of interest of government loans. As the achievement is valued at market prices, the banks will be compelled to find additional in government securities to maintain SLR at 38.5 percent. The following are the main classes of stock exchange securities.

Public Debts: Government of India and state government raise public loans to cover the budgetary deficits. The term as regards the rate of interest and repayments are made very clear while announcing the loans. When the government borrows from the public, the credit of the entire nation is pledged. Generally, all the commercial banks in India subscribe to government loans.

Semi Government Securities: Theses are the bonds executed port trust, the government guarantees municipal councils etc. theses, they are also safe, and the government guarantees the repayment.

Gilt-Edged Securities: They include not only government securities but also municipal bonds.

Treasury bills: The banks whenever they find surplus of cash in its vaults, they invest in treasury bills. The RBI sells treasury whenever necessary on behalf of central government. The sales of treasury bills provide short term finance to government and also help to absorb excess of liquidity in the money market. The buyers of the treasury bills are commercial banks only. The RBI rediscounts the bills when the banks are in the need of funds.

Industrial securities: In this are included all the securities such as shares, stocks, bonds and debenture of companies engaged in production and distribution of varieties of commodities and services. Such companies are classified in to manufacturing, trading, extracting and shipping.

OVER DRAFTS Loan is a facility given to current account holders. In this arrangement, the customer is permitted to draw up to a limit fixed by the bank. The security for overdraft is personal, shares, stock, debenture, government papers etc. overdrafts are temporary in nature and generally are give to business of high standing and integrity. Demand Loans:

Demand Loans are simple loans, which have not stated maturity and may be asked to pay on demand. The silent feature of this loan is that the contract account is paid to customer at one time either in cash or by transfers to his current account. Term Loans: Term Loans are defines as loans given by the bank to the customers whose final maturity period is longer than one year. A term loan enables the party to by plant and machinery. The duration of loan may be 8 to 10 years over the year and the volume of term loans has more than doubled since bank nationalization. Bills Purchased: Banks land money against bills, or documentary of the customers. Banks purchase the bills or hold the bills against bank loan. This facility is given only trust worthy customers. Bills Discounted: The bank discounts usance bills with a maturity period of about 960 days or after the date or sight of approved parties. After discounting the bills of exchangers, the proceeds are credited to the customers account. The discount constitutes profits to the bank. Discounting of promissory notes constitute a clean exchange advance against the signatures of two parties

known to the bank, of whom becomes the endorser and the other becomes drawer or the maker. Packing Credit: Packing credit is a short-term advance granted by a bank to an exporter to against him in packing and shipping the goods. The loans against such items are given for a maximum period a tree months. Consumer Credit: The banks provide consumer loans to their customer to by household goods. The amount of loan is recovered by suitable installments. Clean Advance: It is a short period advance gives to customers taking in into consideration their liquid resources since there is no security offered to this loans-they are granted against personal securities. Clean advance are spread over a number of parties and are sometimes reinforced by suitable guarantees.

BANKERS Number of definition of the term BANKER has been put forward by different writer on the subject. We have discussed here some of the important ones. But one of the definition give a precise meaning of the term.

DEFINITION: A banker or bank is a person or company carrying on the business of receiving money and collecting drafts, for customer subject to the obligation of honoring cheque drawn upon them from time to time by the customers in the extent of the amounts available in their current accounts . This definition tells the features of an institution to be called a bank or banker. They are: (1) Receiving money and collecting drafts-this means accepting the money on current accounts and collecting the cheque and drafts on behalf of the customers. (2) The obligation of honoring cheque drawn upon them, making payment across the counter on demand by the customers to the extent of money available at the credit of customers account or up to the sanctioned limit on case of overdrafts. (3) The main line of activity of the organization should be the banking business (It was held in a court decision Stafford us Henry (1950) that one Mr. Labertouche , who carried wide variety of business activities in his organization, was not a banker as his main line of activity was not banking business), Definition By Kinlay:

An establishment which makes to individuals such advance of money as may be required and safely made and to which individuals entrust money when not needed by them for use. The Indian banking companies Act, 1949, renamed form 1966, the banking regulation Act, gives a definition of term Banker. Accordingly, any company which transacts the business of banking in India is called company. The term banking has been define as accepting for the purpose of lending and investment, of deposits of money from the public, repayable on demand or otherwise and withdrawal by cheque, draft. Section of the Act list out various functions in which a banking institution can be engaged. They are: The borrowing, raising or taking up of money in the form of deposits in time, current or savings account. Granting and issuing letters of credit, travelers cheque and circular notes. The buying and selling of foreign exchange including forengin notes.

Acquiring, holding, issuing on commission, underwriting and dealing in stocks, funds, shares, debenture, bonds, obligation. Securities and investment of all kinds. The receiving of all kinds of bonds, or valuable on deposits. The provision of safe deposits. The collecting and transmitting of money and securities. Undertaking and executing trust. Contracting for public and privet loan and negotiating and issuing the same. The Indian banking regulation Act covers a wide variety of activities that can be taken up by the banking companies. Based upon such activities, an institution can identify as banking company or banker.

As already stated, it should satisfy the following condition:

There should be the acceptance of the deposit from the public. But lending money without accepting the deposit amounts cannot be called banking activities. This has been stated in much legal decision. Any type of deposit viz. time, current and savings account can be accepted. But the current account should be operated through cheque. This is the distinct feature in banking companies. The deposit on maturity should be paid through cheque or through any other approved withdrawing instrument. The deposit can be paid on demand to the depositors even prior to the maturity. The deposit so accepted shall be lent or invested in different approved securities. Another condition is that the bank should have banking function as the main line of activity.


DEFINITION: To constitute a customer, there must be some recognizable of habit of dealing in the nature of regular banking business. It is difficult to reconcile the idea of a single transaction with that of a customer. The ward customer surely predicates even grammatically, some minimum of custom antithetic to an isolated act. It is believed that tradesman differentiates between a customer and a casual purchaser. This viewpoint indicates that two aspects are essential to constitute a customer: (1) There must be some recognizable course of habit of dealing between the person and the bank. And (2) The traction must be in the nature of regular banking business. The first essential condition that more opening an account with the bank by a person cannot make him a customer of the bank was upheld in the Mathews vs Williams, Brown & Co., suit. It was held that a customer should have regular transaction with the bank and just opening an account with bank cannot constitute him a customer. this was called Duration Theory, as the relationship with the banker was suppose to be continuous and in greater frequency.

John Paget observed the the relationship of customer and banker beings as soon as the first cheque is paid in and accepted for collection and not merely when it is paid. According to this judgment, a person is identified as a customer when he opens an account with the bank. Types of customer: MINOR: A person who has completed 18 years of age is a minor. If the court appoints a guardian of his person or property before the 18th years, he remains minor till he completes his 21st year. According to the Indian contract Act, 1872, a minor is not capable of entering into a valid contract and a contract entered in to by a minor is void. Therefore a banker should be very care full in dealing with a minor and take the following precaution: (1) The banker ma open a saving account in the name of minor, in any of the following ways: In the name of the minor, to be operated upon by himself, if he has attained the age of years. Two such minors can jointly open such an account, to be operated upon by them jointly. In the name of the minor, to be operated by the natural guardian of the minor or the guardian appointed by the court. Such account can also be

opened in the joint names of two of more minors, to be operated by the guardian. (2) The bank records the date of birth of the minor as given by the minors guardian. On the appointment of majority, the account of the minor in the name of the guardian should be closed and the balance paid to the minor. (3) If the father of Hindu minor dies, his mother becomes his natural guardian. After the death of mother, during the minority of the boy there is either the testamentary guardian appointed by the court. (4) In case the minor dies, the balance in the account is permitted to be withdrawn by the guardian and in case of joint account the balance will be held at the absolute disposal of the guardian. As Agent: A minor can act agent for another person who is competent to contract. Provided his principal has duly authorized him to do so. E.g. a minor son may make contracts, besides endorsing cheque and bills, on behalf of his father, if his father has duly authorized him to act as his agent. Lunatic:

According to section 12 of Indian contract act, 1872, a person is said to be of sound mind for the purpose of making a contract, if at the time when hw makes it, he is capable of understanding the nature and effect of the same and of forming a rational judgment as o its effect upon his interest. This definition is act as guide in deciding whether a person is a lunatic or not. As soon as the banker comes to know of the insanity of his customer. If the customer is confined to a lunatic asylum or judicially declared a lunatic be a competent court under the lunacy Act. Married Woman: A Hindu married woman can enter in to contracts and bind her estate. A married woman not disqualified from entering in to contracts by reason of her marriage. Married women of other communities in India are given the same power of holding separate properties by section 4 of the Indian succession Act, 1925, and section 4 of he married womens property Act, 1874. a contract by a married women would bind her husband only if it is fir the purchase of her necessities.

RELATIONSHIP Essentially the relationship between the banker and the customer is that of a contractual relationship. This relationship of two types General relationship and special relationship. General relationship may further be classified as Primary and Secondary relationship. Primary General relationship is in the form of a Debtor, which arises out of a contract between the banker and the customer. Banker is neither a bailee nor a trustee nor an agent only a debtor. Thus the fundamental relationship is that of Debtor and Creditor. Some times the banker discharges agency functions like collection of bills, cheque etc, acts as a bailee by keepings valuables in safe custody and acts as trustee by administrating the property for the benefit of defined beneficiary. Here the relationship is not that of Debtor-Creditor. The authorities on banking law have said that primary relationship is that of Debtor and Creditor.

DEBTOR-CREDITOR RELATIONSHIP Sir John Paget stated the The relation of the banker and the customer is primarily that of debtor and creditor, the perspective position being determine by the existing state of the account. H.P.Sheldon is of the opinion that the banker, when he receives money from customers, does not hold the money in a fiduciary capacity. To say that money is deposited with a banker is likely to cause misapprehension, what really happens is that the money is not deposited with, but lent to the banker all that the banker agrees to do is to discharge the debt by paying over an equal amount when call upon. Even in Indian courts a similar opinion is given. By perusing these court decisions and sayings of the authorities on the subject, it is clear that exists between the banker and customer is primarily that of the debtor and creditor. A banker is neither a bailee nor trustee nor agent of the customers money deposited in the account. According to bailment, the bailee has to return the goods bailed to the bailor without using it. But the banker does not have any such condition from the customer that whatever money deposited

in any account shall be given back to the customer intact without using it. Banker is a liberty ti utilse the same for lending and returns the money to the customer only on demand at the right place and at right time. The demand should be through an instrument-cheque-and in writing. Similarly, the trustee position implies that the money shall be utilized according to the trust deed. But the banker nit need utilize money in accordance with the specified deed and is free to utilize the deposited money in any manner he deems fit. Thus, when the deposit is accepted from the customers, the banker is only a debtor and the customer is creditor. However, when the loans obtain by the customer exceeds any money to his credit at that bank, the position changes and the banker becomes creditor and the customer becomes debtors and the relationship of banker and customer is that of debtor and creditor and it may change vice versa. SPECIAL FEATUYRE OF DEBTOR-CREDITOR RALATIONSHIP Banker is called a dignified debtor. Virtually he borrows money but it is given a number called Deposit. No security need be given for this borrowing. The peculiar feature is that the debtor need not go to the creditor for obtaining funds and the debts has to be paid during the business hours of the bank only when the creditor demands. Customer is not the secured creditor of the bank, as he is not having any charge on any asset of the bank. He is only an assured creditor.

Banker should pay the deposit money on demand by the customer. The demand should be med by the customer on working days and during the business hour and it should made in proper form. If any payment is made on holidays and in non-business it will not be a payment on due course.

There are certain basic difference between an ordinary debt and due by a bank as a debtor to the customer. The bank debt is called deposit whereas the monetary obligation between creditor and debtors is called debt. In the normal leading transactions, the debtor goes to the creditor for borrowing. But in case of bank deposit, it is quite the other way. Bank deposit can withdraw whenever the customer wants to do so. The debtor cannot demand the ordinary debt. The banker at a specific place repays bank deposits during working hours, whereas the commercial debt can be paid anywhere, any day and at any time.

Ordinary commercial debt can be settled orally. But the banker will clear bank debt only when the demand is maid in writing.

OPERATION OF BANK AACOUNT (Different Department Of Banking System) In India, banks generally accept deposits in four types of account, namely: (1) Fixed Deposit Account; (2) Saving Deposit Account; (3) Current Account; FIXED DEPOSIT In the case of fixed deposit and time deposit, the depositor agrees not to withdraw the amount deposited for a specific period, which ordinarily varies from three months to five years. The fixing of the period enables the banker to invest the money. Without having to keep reserve, and this is one of the reasons why fixed deposit are so popular. The fixed deposits are also termed time liabilities, which means that withdrawable deposits are subject to a notice and not on demand. Features of Fixed Deposit:

Legal position: In the case of fixed deposits, the legal position of a banker is that of a debtor who is not bound to repay the amount before its due date. The banker continues to be a debtor even though the period fixed for the deposit has expired and the depositor has not withdrawn in. Transferability: When the money is deposited in this account, the banker issue a receipt known as a Fixed Deposit Receipt, which is usually marked: not negotiable. This receipt is not recognized as a negotiable instrument, as giving the transferee the right to use the bank in his own name. It may be transferred by way of assignment to a third party, but since it is not a negotiable instrument, the transferee cannot have a better title than the transferor.
