EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Private banking is a concept which is new and fast emerging in the world of banking where

changes have become a necessity in order for banks to survive in this competitive

environment vis-à-vis not only from the public and private sector banks but also from the

foreign banks. The objective of the research is to explore the various products, which a private

banker deals into and the systematic process involved to match client requirements with the

right kind of product.

Through this research one of the main objectives is to explore the reason why most of the

banks are injecting private banking as business profile to their set of service offerings.

Though private banking evolved in late 80’s in Asia, in India its not more than 5 years old.

ICICI started it in Aug 2002 and since then it has been a remarkable success. Today there are

enormous solutions to cater client needs but what suits best to a client is where private

banking fits in. Every client will have different needs, liking and preferences. So a customized

portfolio for every client is the need of the day.

This research will highlight more on the product portfolio of ICICI Private Banking, how they

have changed or innovatively structured to be attractive and competitive.

Here we more concerned about private sector banks and competition among them. Today, there

are 27 private sector banks in the banking sector: 19 old private sector banks and 8 new private

sector banks.

These new banks have brought in state-of-the-art technology and aggressively marketed their

products. The Public sector banks are facing a stiff competition from the new private sector

banks.

The banks which have been setup in the 1990s under the guidelines of the Narasimham

Committee are referred to as NEW PRIVATE SECTOR BANKS.

INTRODUCTION

The banking section will navigate through all the aspects of the Banking System in India. It

will discuss upon the matters with the birth of the banking concept in the country to new

players adding their names in the industry in coming few years.

The banker of all banks, Reserve Bank of India (RBI), the Indian Banks Association (IBA)

and top 20 banks like IDBI, HSBC, ICICI, ABN AMRO, etc. has been well defined under

three separate heads with one page dedicated to each bank.

However, in the introduction part of the entire banking cosmos, the past has been well

explained under three different heads namely:

History of Banking in India

Nationalization of Banks in India

Scheduled Commercial Banks in India

The first deals with the history part since the dawn of banking system in India. Government

took major step in the 1969 to put the banking sector into systems and it nationalized 14

private banks in the mentioned year. This has been elaborated in Nationalization Banks in

India. The last but not the least explains about the scheduled and unscheduled banks in India.

Section 42 (6) (a) of RBI Act 1934 lays down the condition of scheduled commercial banks.

The descriptions along with a list of scheduled commercial banks are given on this page.

HISTORY OF BANKING IN INDIA

Without a sound and effective banking system in India it cannot have a healthy economy.

The banking system of India should not only be hassle free but it should be able to meet new

challenges posed by the technology and any other external and internal factors.

8 SESSION 2011-12

Page 9: Icici project

For the past three decades India's banking system has several outstanding achievements to its

credit. The most striking is its extensive reach. It is no longer confined to only metropolitans

or cosmopolitans in India. In fact, Indian banking system has reached even to the remote

corners of the country. This is one of the main reasons of India's growth process.

The government's regular policy for Indian bank since 1969 has paid rich dividends with the

nationalization of 14 major private banks of India.

Not long ago, an account holder had to wait for hours at the bank counters for getting a draft

or for withdrawing his own money. Today, he has a choice. Gone are days when the most

efficient bank transferred money from one branch to other in two days. Now it is simple as

instant messaging or dial a pizza. Money have become the order of the day.

The first bank in India, though conservative, was established in 1786. From 1786 till today,

the journey of Indian Banking System can be segregated into three distinct phases. They are

as mentioned below:

Early phase from 1786 to 1969 of Indian Banks

Nationalization of Indian Banks and up to 1991 prior to Indian banking sector

Reforms.

New phase of Indian Banking System with the advent of Indian Financial & Banking

Sector Reforms after 1991.

To make this write-up more explanatory, I prefix the scenario as Phase I, Phase II and Phase

III.

Phase I

The General Bank of India was set up in the year 1786. Next came Bank of Hindustan and

Bengal Bank. The East India Company established Bank of Bengal (1809), Bank of Bombay

(1840) and Bank of Madras (1843) as independent units and called it Presidency Banks.

9 SESSION 2011-12

Page 10: Icici project

These three banks were amalgamated in 1920 and Imperial Bank of India was established

which started as private shareholders banks, mostly Europeans shareholders.

In 1865 Allahabad Bank was established and first time exclusively by Indians, Punjab

National Bank Ltd. was set up in 1894 with headquarters at Lahore. Between 1906 and 1913,

Bank of India, Central Bank of India, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank, Indian Bank, and Bank

of Mysore were set up. Reserve Bank of India came in 1935.

During the first phase the growth was very slow and banks also experienced periodic failures

between 1913 and 1948. There were approximately 1100 banks, mostly small. To streamline

the functioning and activities of commercial banks, the Government of India came up with

The Banking Companies Act, 1949 which was later changed to Banking Regulation Act 1949

as per amending Act of 1965 (Act No. 23 of 1965). Reserve Bank of India was vested with

extensive powers for the supervision of banking in India as the Central Banking Authority.

During those day’s public has lesser confidence in the banks. As an aftermath deposit

mobilization was slow. Abreast of it the savings bank facility provided by the Postal

department was comparatively safer. Moreover, funds were largely given to traders.

Phase II

Government took major steps in this Indian Banking Sector Reform after independence. In

1955, it nationalized Imperial Bank of India with extensive banking facilities on a large scale

especially in rural and semi-urban areas. It formed State Bank of India to act as the principal

agent of RBI and to handle banking transactions of the Union and State Governments all over

the country.

Seven banks forming subsidiary of State Bank of India was nationalized in 1960 on 19th July,

1969, major process of nationalization was carried out. It was the effort of the then Prime

Minister of India, Mrs. Indira Gandhi. 14 major commercial banks in the country was

nationalized.

Second phase of nationalization Indian Banking Sector Reform was carried out in 1980 with

seven more banks. This step brought 80% of the banking segment in India under Government

ownership.

10 SESSION 2011-12

Page 11: Icici project

The following are the steps taken by the Government of India to Regulate Banking

Institutions in the Country:

1949: Enactment of Banking Regulation Act.

1955: Nationalization of State Bank of India.

1959: Nationalization of SBI subsidiaries.

1961: Insurance cover extended to deposits.

1969: Nationalization of 14 major banks.

1971: Creation of credit guarantee corporation.

1975: Creation of regional rural banks.

1980: Nationalization of seven banks with deposits over 200 crore.

After the nationalization of banks, the branches of the public sector bank India rose to

approximately 800% in deposits and advances took a huge jump by 11,000%.

Banking in the sunshine of Government ownership gave the public implicit faith and immense

confidence about the sustainability of these institutions.

Phase III

This phase has introduced many more products and facilities in the banking sector in its

reforms measure. In 1991, under the chairmanship of M Narasimham, a committee was set up

by his name which worked for the liberalization of banking practices.

The country is flooded with foreign banks and their ATM stations. Efforts are being put to

give a satisfactory service to customers. Phone banking and net banking is introduced. The

entire system became more convenient and swift. Time is given more importance than money.

The financial system of India has shown a great deal of resilience. It is sheltered from any

crisis triggered by any external macroeconomics shock as other East Asian Countries

suffered. This is all due to a flexible exchange rate regime, the foreign reserves are high, the

capital account is not yet fully convertible, and banks and their customers have limited foreign

exchange exposure.

11 SESSION 2011-12

Page 12: Icici project

BANKS IN INDIA

In India the banks are being segregated in different groups. Each group has their own benefits

and limitations in operating in India. Each has their own dedicated target market. Few of them

only work in rural sector while others in both rural as well as urban. Many even are only

catering in cities. Some are of Indian origin and some are foreign players.

All these details and many more is discussed over here. The banks and its relation with the

customers, their mode of operation, the names of banks under different groups and other such

useful information’s are talked about.

One more section has been taken note of is the upcoming foreign banks in India. The RBI has

shown certain interest to involve more of foreign banks than the existing one recently. This

step has paved a way for few more foreign banks to start business in India.

TECHNOLOGY

ICICI use many type of advance technological software like Pinnacle 7.0 and Pinnacle7.016.Among from this software ICICI bank uses the e-banking, core banking, mo-bile banking electronic display sy ICICI Bank was using Teradata for its data warehouse.   However, due to its proprietary hardware, the cost of procurement, upgrades and administra-tion was soaring. The closed box architecture of Teradata imposed restrictions on scalability. Secondly, querying and loading could not happen simultaneously. Queries could only be run during business hours because the loading of data had to take place during off-business hours. This meant that the refresh rate of EDW was delayed, so queries may not reflect the most cur -rent data. ICICI Bank was also dependent on Teradata for support and other activities: The bank was completely tied down to that solution.

These issues compelled ICICI Bank to look for more efficient and flexible solutions. The so-lution would have to address not only current issues, but accommodate future growth expecta-tions and business requirements. ICICI Bank evaluated numerous data warehousing solutions in the pursuit of solving its issues, and developed a shortlist of alternatives for its migration proof-of-concept: Sybase, SAS and Netezza. The primary criteria for evaluation was the price-to-performance ratio where Sybase IQ emerged the clear winner.  During this rigorous testing, Sybase IQ delivered faster results on independent hardware and operating systems with minimum infrastructure. Commending the improvements achieved, Amit Sethi, Joint General Manager, ICICI bank says, "What impressed us wasthat even with overall lower costs, we could achieve significantly better query performanceafter implementing the Sybase enterprise warehouse solution." ICICI Infotech today launched an enterprise resource plan-ning (ERP) solution for the small and medium enterprises.

The ERP package - Orion Advantage - comes bundled with an HP dual processor Xeon server, Oracle 9i database, Windows 2003 server and costs about Rs 9.90 lakh and has a 15-user license.

An ERP package helps a manufacturer or any other business implementing it to manage all the important parts in the company such as product planning, parts purchasing, maintaining inventory and interacting with suppliers and customers.

ICICI Infotech officials told a press conference here today that Orion Advantage offered a set of business practice solutions for industry segments such as engineering, auto ancillary, phar-maceuticals, chemicals and IT distribution. Besides the cost advantage, the ERP package also came pre-configured. ICICI Infotech had mapped the processes specific to each industry seg-ment into the package.

Mr. Manoj Kunkalienkar, Executive Director and President, ICICI Infotech, said that small and medium enterprises (SMEs) offered a good market and ICICI Infotech hoped to become a leading solution provider to this segment.

34 SESSION 2011-12

Page 35: Icici project

Mr. R.K. Kanthi, Deputy General Manager, ICICI Infotech, said there was no ERP package for the SMEs that bundled the server, database and operating system right now. That was the advantage ICICI Infotech offered to SMEs as Orion Advantage came bundled and pre-config-ured. Besides the high cost of generic ERP packages, their implementation time as far as SMEs were concerned was also long. Orion Advantage could be installed in 45 days.

ICICI Infotech had signed up six customers so far for the package and hoped to garner a 15 per cent market share of the SME segment, whose number in the country was estimated at 2.30 lakh.

Mr. K.S. Natarajan, Managing Director, Trident Pneumatics Pvt Ltd of Coimbatore, one of the companies that had installed Orion Advantage, said that the company had tried three other ERP packages, all of which had failed, before settling on Orion Advantage.

Mr Kunkalienkar said that ICICI Infotech planned to move the two development centers in Chennai into a single location and double the staff strength from 300 now in the next two years.

The Chennai centers were involved in research and development of Orion ERP solutions and Premia, an insurance package.

Retail Segment of ICICI Lombard General Insurance :

ICICI Lombard's Retail Segment consists of personal insurance products - Health, Home,

Motor and Travel insurances.

Health Insurance

ICICI Lombard is known to be a pioneer in introducing innovative concepts in the Indian

health Insurance sector. Be it the floater concept, the critical illness cover or the tax gain

policy, all these were first introduced by ICICI Lombard. It was also one of the first general

insurance companies in India to have a robust online system in place for buying and renewing

policies.

The various plans offered by ICICI Lombard include Family Floater Plan - where one policy

covers the entire family, Health Advantage Plus - where they cover OPD and dental expenses,

also help save maximum tax under section 80D and Critical Illness plan - a special policy

covering a list of critical illnesses. They also have a basic Personal Accident Plan which

covers against accidents. ICICI Lombard health plans also provide coverage against terrorism.

Home Insurance

Home Insurance is actually one of the most neglected areas in the general insurance category.

Simply, because people in general, especially in India, do not give much importance to it.

However, in the recent years, due to the increase in awareness, and the great extent of damage

caused to property due to natural calamities and terrorism, it has been gaining importance.

The Home Insurance Policyoffered by ICICI Lombard covers both the structure and the

contents of the house. You can opt for either of the covers or both. Unlike other policies, it

also covers damage due to terrorist activities, loss of cash, public liability, temporary

resettlement and others.

38 SESSION 2011-12

Page 39: Icici project

Motor Insurance

As Motor Insurance is mandatory in India and is governed by the Motor Tariff Act, the

policies offered by various companies are more or less the same. There is not much room for

innovation in this category. ICICI Lombard too offers Car Insurance and Two Wheeler

Insurance. They are known to offer one of the best rates in the market. As the entire buying

process is online and is instant, without any submission of documents or other formalities,

people generally opt it for convenience.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is one of the most prominent sector of general insurance, especially overseas

travel insurance and student medical insurance. ICICI Lombard offers various options in both

the categories. The Overseas Travel Plans and Student Medical Plans offered cover medical

and non-medical expenses, including compensation for flights hijacked and pre existing

diseases in case of emergency. They charge on a per day basis if the travel is more than 7

days. ICICI Lombard has tied up with United Health Group to facilitate access to all its

clinics while in U.S.

The Student Medical Plans are accepted in almost universities worldwide. They also have a

section in their website, University Search, where one can find specific plans for specific

universities.

All the above retail policies can be bought online, without any documentation through their

website www.icicilombard.com .One can not only buy, but also manage and renew their

insurance policies online.

NRI Services

ICICI Lombard has developed insurance policies for Non-resident Indians that can be bought,

renewed and tracked online.

Parents' Health Insurance covers hospitalization and medical expenses incurred by parents of

the policyholder in India. For parents' travelling outside India, ICICI Lombard offers a

Parents' Overseas Travel Insurance policy.

An NRI can insure his children/ dependents travelling abroad to study, under the Student Medical Insurance plan. Likewise, the Home Insurance and Car Insurance schemes enables an NRI to secure his assets in India.Channels

Channel is the term used for the various approaches a company uses to tap its customers.

ICICI Lombard uses a multi channel approach to ensure the sales, service and other allied

activities are carried out in the most effective manner.

one who are in direct contact with the customers and bring the innovative insurance solutions

to their doorsteps.

Page 49: Icici project

Home Insurance

Home Insurance is actually one of the most neglected areas in the general insurance category.

Simply, because people in general, especially in India, do not give much importance to it.

However, in the recent years, due to the increase in awareness, and the great extent of damage

caused to property due to natural calamities and terrorism, it has been gaining importance.

The Home Insurance Policyoffered by ICICI Lombard covers both the structure and the

contents of the house. You can opt for either of the covers or both. Unlike other policies, it

also covers damage due to terrorist activities, loss of cash, public liability, temporary

resettlement and others.

Motor Insurance

As Motor Insurance is mandatory in India and is governed by the Motor Tariff Act, the

policies offered by various companies are more or less the same. There is not much room for

innovation in this category. ICICI Lombard too offers Car Insurance and Two Wheeler

Insurance. They are known to offer one of the best rates in the market. As the entire buying

process is online and is instant, without any submission of documents or other formalities,

people generally opt it for convenience.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is one of the most prominent sector of general insurance, especially overseas

travel insurance and student medical insurance. ICICI Lombard offers various options in both

the categories. The Overseas Travel Plans and Student Medical Plans offered cover medical

and non-medical expenses, including compensation for flights hijacked and pre existing

diseases in case of emergency. They charge on a per day basis if the travel is more than 7

days. ICICI Lombard has tied up with United Health Group to facilitate access to all its

clinics while in U.S.

section in their website, University Search, where one can find specific plans for specific

universities.

Opportunity Matrix

A Marketing opportunity is an area of interest in which a company can perform profitably. An

opportunity can take many forms. Some of them are:

1) Buying process made easy- Internet shopping

2) Meet the information needs of the customers in a better way.

3) A company can customize the product which was originally offered in standard form.

63 SESSION 2011-12

Page 64: Icici project

The opportunities that fall under the first quadrant are higher on the side of success

probability and also on the attractiveness, so the company should tap those opportunities as

early as possible.

The opportunities falling under the second quadrant should be

tapped only after the success of the opportunities in the first quadrant. Although the

success probability is on the lower side still the attractiveness is on the higher side.

64 SESSION 2011-12

Page 65: Icici project

The opportunities in the third quadrant are less important as compared to the opportunities

in the first and second quadrant. Although the attractiveness is on the lower side but the

success probabilities of these opportunities are on the higher side.

The opportunities in the fourth quadrant are negligible as the success probability and

attractiveness both are on the lower side

65 SESSION 2011-12

Page 66: Icici project

Threat Matrix.

An Environmental Threat is a challenge posed by an unfavourable trend or development. In

the absence of any defensive marketing action these threats may lead to deterioration in sales

and indirectly in the profits of the company.

The Threats falling under the first quadrant are harmful to the progress of the firm.

Their occurrence probability and also the seriousness is on the higher side. Therefore the

company should take immediate actions against these threats.

The Threats falling under the second quadrant are also very harmful as their seriousness of

these threats is on the higher side, although the probability occurrence is on the lower side.

The Threats coming under the third quadrant are less serious as compared to the threats in the

first and second quadrant. The company should keep a backup plans for these threats as this

can also affect the profitability of the company.

66 SESSION 2011-12

Page 67: Icici project

The Threats under the fourth quadrant are negligible as the probability occurrence and

seriousness both are on the lower side of the matrix.

67 SESSION 2011-12

Page 68: Icici project

Weakness

1) High Bank Service Charges: ICICI bank charges highly to customers for the services

provided by them when compared to other bank & that is why it is only in the reach of higher

class of society.

2) Less Credit Period: ICICI bank provides credit facilities but only upto limited period.

Even when the credit period is not over it sends reminder letters to the customers which

may annoy them.

68 SESSION 2011-12

Page 69: Icici project

OPPORTUNITIES

1) Bank –Insurance services: The bank should also provide insurance services. That means

the bank can have a tie-up with a insurance company. The bank will advertise & promote the

different policies introduced by the insurance company & convince their customers to buy

insurance policies.

2) Increase in percentage of Returns on increase: The bank should provide higher returns

on deposits in comparison of the present situation. This will also upto large extent help the

bank earn profits & popularity.

3) Recruit professionally guided students: Bank & Insurance is a special non-aid course

where the students specialize in the functioning & services of the bank & also are knowledge

about various tax policies. The bank can recruit these students through tie-ups with colleges.

Such students will surely prove as an asset to the bank.

4) Associate with social cause: The bank can also associate itself with social causes like

providing relief aid patients, funding towards natural calamities. But this falls in the 4th

quadrant so the bank should neglect it.

1) Competition: ICICI Bank is facing tight competition locally as well as internationally.

Bank like CITI Bank, HSBC, ABM, Standered Chartered, HDFC also provide equivalent

facilities like ICICI do and also ICICI do not have consistency in its international operation.

2) Net Services: ICICI Bank provides all kind of services on-line. There can be easy access

to the e-mail ids of the customers through wrong people. The confidential information of the

customers can be leaked easily through the e-mail ids.

3) Decentralized Management: Each branch manager is given the authority of taking

decisions in their respective branches. The decisions made by different managers are diverse

and any one wrong decision can laid to heavy losses to the bank.

4) No Proper Facilities to Uneducated customers: ICICI Bank provides all services

through electronic computerized machines. This creates problems to the less educated people.

But this threat falls in the 4th quadrant so its negligible. The company can avoid this threat.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

70 SESSION 2011-12

Page 71: Icici project

Data Collection Techniques:

This project consists of two parts.

The first part is a study of the banking industry, ICICI Bank using secondary data sources.

This secondary information has been sourced from the internet and from business related

magazines and newspapers.

The second part of the study has been done using an exploratory research process and a

structured questionnaire was developed for this purpose. For the collection of primary data

this was the only method used. The reason I used this method is because a need was felt for

the free influx of information about the products. Also this method allowed the use of skills

gained in class.

Sample Design:

The population considered for the purpose of the survey was people residing in Delhi and the

National Capital Region (NCR).

Sampling Technique Used:

Since the information required was not of a very technical nature and also looking at the

scope of the project and the extent of the target segment, the sampling technique employed

was Convenience Sampling. I administered the questionnaires.

Sample Size:

I have restricted the sample size to 50 respondents. This was done keeping in mind the time

constraints and the fact that I felt that this number would be enough to serve the information

needs required to show the trends.

71 SESSION 2011-12

Page 72: Icici project

Customer Satisfaction:

Customer satisfaction is equivalent to making sure that product and service performance

meets customer expectations. It is the perception of the customer that the outcome of a

business transaction is equal to or greater than his/her expectation. Customer satisfaction

occurs when the acquisition of products and /or services provides a minimum negative

departure from expectations when compared with other acquisitions and when the marginal

utility of a transaction is equal to or greater than preceding acquisitions.

Customer satisfaction occurs when the perception of the reward from the purchase of goods or

services by the customer meets or exceeds his/her perceived sacrifice. The perception is a

consequence of matching past purchase and consumption experience with the current

purchase.

Customer Service and Satisfaction:

When we talk about customer service and/or satisfaction, we talk about creativity. Creativity

allows us to handle or diffuse problems at hand or later on rather in the process of conducting

the everyday business. We talk about how, or what, does the organization have to do to gain

not only the sale but also the loyalty of the customer. We want to know the payoff of the

transaction both in the short and long term. We want to know what our customers Want? We

want to know if our customers are satisfied. Satisfaction, Of course, means that what we

delivered to a customer met the customer’s Approval. We want to know if customers are

delighted and willing to come

Back, and so on. Fleiss 2 and Feldman 3 present examples of that delightfulness in their

writings. Fleiss has written about Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and Feldman has discussed

excellence in a cab ride. As important as delightfulness is, some of us minimize it, or even

totally disregard it. At this point, we fail. Some of the issues that will guarantee failure in

sales, satisfaction, and loyalty are:

72 SESSION 2011-12

Page 73: Icici project

Employees must adhere to a rigid chain of command

Employees are closely supervised

Conflict—in whatever form—is not allowed

Rewards are based on carrot-and-stick principles

Wrong objectives are measure.

We must understand customer expectation levels concerning quality. We must also

understand the strategy for customer service quality, and next we must understand the

measurement and feedback cycles of Customer satisfaction.

The customer is the person or unit receiving the output of a process on the system. In fact, it is

worth emphasizing that a customer can be the immediate, intermediate, or ultimate customer.

Also, a customer may be a person or persons, or a process or processes. Customer

satisfaction, however, is when the customer is satisfied with a product/service that meets the

customer’s needs, wants, and expectations.

There are at least three levels of customer expectations about quality:

Level 1. Expectations are very simple and take the form of assumptions, must have, or take it

for granted. For example, I expect the airline to be able to take off, fly to my destination, and

land safely. I expect to get the correct blood for my blood transfusion and I expect the bank to

deposit my money to my account and to keep a correct tally for me.

Level 2. Expectations are a step higher than that of level 1 and they require some form of

satisfaction through meeting the requirements and/or specifications. For example, I expect to

be treated courteously by all airline personnel. I went to the hospital expecting to have my

hernia repaired, to be in some pain after it was done, to be out on the same day, and to receive

a correct bill. And I went to the bank expecting the bank teller to be friendly, informative, and

helpful with my transactions.

Level 3. Expectations are much higher than for levels 1 and 2. Level 3 requires some kind of

delightfulness or a service that is so good that it attracts me to it. For example, an airline gives

73 SESSION 2011-12

Page 74: Icici project

passengers traveling coach class the same superior food service that other airlines provide

only for first-class passengers. In fact, I once took a flight where the flight attendants actually

baked

cookies for us right there on the plane. When I went to the hospital, I expected staff to treat

me with respect and they carefully explained things to me. But I was surprised when they

called me at home the next day to find out how I was doing. And at my house closing, the

bank officer, representing the bank holding my mortgage, not only treated me with respect

and answered all my questions about my new mortgage, but just before we shook hands to

close the deal, he gave me a housewarming gift.

Customer satisfaction surveys help to:

Improve customer, client, or employee loyalty.

React quickly to changes in the market.

Identify and capitalize on opportunities.

Beat the competition.

Retain or gain market share.

Increase revenue.

Reduce costs.

COMPARISON OF ICICI WITH SBI

85 SESSION 2011-12

Page 86: Icici project

ICICI bank is the largest private sector bank in India and the second largest commercial bank

in India. It has branches all over India and even in smaller towns in South India after the

takeover of Bank of Madurai. The bank also has foreign subsidiaries like ICICI bank, Canada

in Canada, Britain and Russia ,representative offices in USA, China, UAE, Bangladesh,

South Africa and branches in Bahrain, Singapore .

It offers a platform for online share trading through ICICI Direct and insurance

services - ICICI Prudential. NRI services include money transfer through

Money2India, which offer better foreign exchange rates for lower amounts compared

to other services.

Like most private sector banks, all ICICI bank branches in India are networked. You

can access your account from any ICICI bank branch in India. Anyone can also

deposit cash/local cheque in your account at any branch of ICICI bank.

Also they have very convenient bank timings and are open for 12 hours  from 8.00

a.m to 8 p.m from Monday to Saturday. When you deposit a cheque at their branch,

they will readily give you a stamped acknowledgement for deposit. You can only

deposit cash in your own account at the ATM, for depositing cash into a third party

account, you have to visit the branch. You have to select the deposit cash option, you

will get an envelope for depositing cash, which you can then fill in the details and

deposit it back. At locations where ICICI bank does not have a branch, the queue at

the ATMs is very long. Just after office hours , between 6 pm - 7.30 pm, customers

sometimes  have to wait for 15-20 minutes on some days, to access the ATM.

Since ICICI bank was established after 1991 it offers online banking where you can

check the balance in your account any time. The interface for savings accounts is

much better and user friendly compared to that for their roaming current account

However, unlike other banks like HDFC bank,  their online bank statement does not

indicate the branch at which the amount is deposited. The information is available in

the email statement sent to you the next day. You have to contact phone banking,

86 SESSION 2011-12

Page 87: Icici project

enter CRN and TPIN, during working hours to get this information. Very often, the

system is slow, so you have to hold on for 10 minutes.

For savings account, up to 3 cash deposits per quarter (3 months) at the non base

branch can be made at no cost. For additional cash deposits, the bank charges the

recipient Rs 100 (+ service tax) per deposit, irrespective of the amount deposited.

When the bank implemented this change, the ICICI bank customers were not

informed about the revision in the charges. For outstation cheques, ICICI bank

charges a minimum of Rs 30 (+ service tax) for savings accounts . This is very

inconvenient for  account holders in small towns, who receive the dividend warrant

payable in major cities only. These warrants can be for small amounts like Rs 20. For

salary accounts, the minimum AQB required is zero and you retain the account even

after you leave the job. If your AQB is more than Rs 100000, you get a free at par

chequebook. For an AQB of more than Rs 500000 (fixed deposit + savings account

balance), you are eligible for private banking services. For non maintenance of

average quarterly balance, not only do they deduct Rs 750 from your balance, they

also deduct an additional service tax.  

Many of the ICICI bank customers are salary account holders, who are forced by their

employers to open an account with ICICI bank to receive their salary. The account is

opened at a branch which is convenient for the employer, but extremely inconvenient

for the employee. If want any clarification or information, their customer support

(through phone banking or email) will instruct you visit the nearest branch - where the

concerned person may or may not be available. For savings account customers if  you

send an email asking for clarifications, it is usually answered after a week.

They have discontinued the auto sweep-in facility (earlier called Quantum Optima),

where the amount in savings accounts was automatically converted into a fixed

deposit, if it exceeded Rs 15000. With the decline in  interest rates for loans,

providing this facility is no longer profitable for the bank. You now have to give an

application at the branch if you wish to continue with this facility now. The form for

making the application was sent along with the monthly bank statement. You can

87 SESSION 2011-12

Page 88: Icici project

alternately open a recurring deposit, where a fixed amount is added to your fixed

deposit every month.  

Making a new Fixed Deposit with ICICI bank for current accounts is extremely time

consuming, especially when compared to HDFC bank. They will insist that you with-

draw cash from your account for making the FD. Since withdrawals of amounts more

than Rs 25000 are subject to cash withdrawal tax, for larger amounts ,   you will have

to split the fixed deposit and visit the branch on 2 different days. ICICI bank is proba-

bly the only bank in India where they will not accept a ICICI bank cheque for making

a fixed deposit.  We had given a cheque with the fixed deposit form , but the bank of-

ficer insisted that we pay cash. She said she would fill the form for us, but she did not

select the options which were initially indicated, causing further problems for us.

(SBI) is the largest public sector bank in India

SBI has branches and ATMs all over India, details of which are available at their

website. State Bank of  Hyderabad, State Bank of  Patiala, State Bank of  Saurashtra,

State Bank of  Bikaner and Jaipur ,State Bank of  Indore, State Bank of  Mysore and

State Bank of  Travancore are the seven subsidary banks of  SBI. As of March 2006,

SBI holding in these banks varies from 74% to 100% , but is likely to decrease in fu-

ture. SBI has one of the largest network of  ATMs in the Asia Pacific region. Many

branches of  State Bank of India are computerized. In places where the Reserve Bank

of India, (RBI) the central bank of India does have an office, SBI carries out many of

its functions. SBI timings vary according to location, for example the Powai, Mumbai

branch of State Bank of India is open between 10.15 am to 2pm (Monday-Friday

You can open a public provident fund (PPF) account at any State Bank of India

branch. PPF accounts are one of the few savings instruments which offer a high tax

free interest rate of 8% per year. All deposits made on or before 5th of  a month earn

interest for the entire month. If you deposit a cheque in your PPF account on the 5th

of  the month, you will get interest for the month, though your account may be debited

88 SESSION 2011-12

Page 89: Icici project

at a later date. The interest is credited to the account at the end of the accounting year

in India.

If you know an agent who is registered with that particular branch of State Bank , he

will pay you back, a part of the commission he receives from the bank. So you can get

back 0.5% - 0.6% of the amount deposited immediately by cash. Usually larger the

amount, the higher the commission paid back by the agent (it is negotiable) . The pay-

in slip for PPF has 3 sections - depositors copy, agents copy and bank copy. The

agents copy has to be given to the agent and he will give part of the commission.

Earlier financial services firm like Blue-chip in Mumbai, would also give a

commission of 0.25% , but they have stopped in the last 2 years.

The minimum amount that can be invested in one year is Rs 500 and maximum

amount is Rs 70000. This investment has a lock in period of 15 years. No withdrawals

are allow till 6 years after account opening and  one withdrawal is allowed per year

there after. It offers rebate under section 80C and the interest is tax free under section

10C.   

For cash withdrawals, you can either use a withdrawal slip or cheque. If an account is

inactive for a long time, State Bank of India does not charge any fee for reactivation.

However, they have a verification process, which may take a long time. Payment

of income tax, advance tax, sales tax can be done at SBI branches. Foreign currency

drafts can also be obtained at the branches.  Since SBI offers a variety of banking

services, their branches are usually very crowded.

State Bank of India has increase home loan interest rates by 25-75 basis points. Also

no fixed rate loans will be available for periods more than 10 years. These changes

have come into effect from March 1, 2006.

SBI Railway Visa Card allows booking of railway tickets online at the Indian

Railways website at zero transaction charges. Users of this credit card can get back up

to 10%  of ticket fare as railway points. These points can be redeemed later, like

frequent flyer miles offered by airlines. State Bank of India is the largest issuer of

debit cards (Maestro) in India

89 SESSION 2011-12

Page 90: Icici project

State Bank customers who have to wait a long time to process a bank transaction can

register their complaint through a touch screen device for customer feedback service

at  the branch. The information is recorded and processed in the central server. As of

March 2006, it is implemented in 10 branches of SBI in Mumbai. When SBI

employees go on strike, the Reserve Bank of India takes over all clearing operations.

However, banking operations are affected since SBI has nearly 30% of the total

customers of banks in India. Cheques/DD drawn on SBI was not cleared due to the

strike. All government taxes like income tax, sales tax, service tax can be paid at any

branch of SBI.

State Bank of India has 52 foreign offices in 34 countries including Australia, UK,

USA, Canada, Bahrain, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Nepal, and Bhutan Sri Lanka.  These are

useful for foreign trade transactions like opening of Letter of Credit

SUGGESTIONS

A. Best play in a buoyant environment Favorable macro, buoyant Market related revenues

and a benign environment for asset quality.

1· ICICI as a player focused on maintaining and /or improving Market share in key

business segments, particularly retail lending- Will, in our view, benefit immensely form a

positive operating Environment.

2. ICICI is viewed as it is benefited from the procyclicality effect of The economic cycle as

its borrowers in the legacy project financing Activity witnessed their debt servicing ability

increasing considerably. It is believed that the profitability of this segment has improved as a

Result of lower loan loss provisions and lower taxable rates of Income from this source.

Expectations is on the procyclical benefit ,To continue and hence profitability of legacy

lending to be sustained At levels seen earlier.

92 SESSION 2011-12

Page 93: Icici project

3. Market related revenues is believed to contribute 14% - 15% to ICICIB's operating

revenues and have boosted its preprovision RoAA. Buoyant environment to sustain the

contribution from market -related revenues is expected and hence the operating profitability.

4. Pricing power in consumer financing segment profitability Against potential shocks.

5. ICICIB enjoys a dominant market position across customer Categories in retail

lending.The strong market position and robust Demand for consumer financing vests

significant pricing power With ICICIB is believed either by allowing a hike in lending rats,

Negotiating higher subvention form manufacturers of cutting Distribution costs.

6. Strong pricing power and a balance sheet that is significantly Biased towards retail lending

buffers ICICB's profitability from Potential shocks in the bank's funding cost.

7. ICICB has an adverse mismatch profile between assets and Liabilities. High volatility in

interest rates could adversely effect Profitability in the short term; however, as the back book

gets Reprised at new lending rates upon maturity, the bank's NIM will Likely show

improvement. This phenomenon to play out through FY1002E and FY2009E is expected.

8. In line with consensus, but we recommend buy ICICIB for growth Reasons and not for the

relative valuation appeal. It is not so much about ICICIB versus HSFC or HDFCB, but about

Their respective operating metrics and growth conditions. Market Has rewarded both

strategies: ICICIB's broad-based strategy allows capturing value across the Value chain in a

customer segment; and ICICIB, like other large players in the private sector, enjoys

Favorable conditions arising from a restrictive regulatory/policy Environment towards new

entrants and foreign banks and slow Pace of reforms for state-owned banks is believed.

B. Increasing contribution from strategic investments Yet another driver

1. The value accruing from subsidiaries to be 17% of ICICIB's Current marke capitization.

This to rise to 20% of ICICIB's target Price over the next 12 months is expected with banking

and life Insurance being the key drivers.

2. The life insurance business of ICICIB has been incurring losses On an accounting basis

due to continued investment in expznding The scale and scope of the business. The life

insurance business is Believed in creating wealth for its shareholders through market Share

gains, increasing penetration of life insurance and improving operating efficiency.

93 SESSION 2011-12

Page 94: Icici project

3.S The asset management and venture capital fund of ICICB makes A negligible

contribution currently; however, these businesses is Believed to hold significant upside

potential as they achieve scale Economies.

Conclusion

Thus, ICICI has been able to use technology to provide value-added service to its customers

during the last few years. For ICICI, technology is an integral part of their business.

However, their overall progress could have been smoother but for certain internal and

extraneous factors and also a pressure on spreads due to a competitive market (Annual report,

2000 –01). E-banking has become a necessary survival weapon and is fundamentally

changing the banking industry worldwide. To day, the click of the mouse offers customers

banking services at a much lower cost and also empowers them with unprecedented freedom

in choosing vendors for their financial service needs. No country today has a choice- whether

to implement E-banking or not given the global and competitive nature of the economy.

94 SESSION 2011-12

Page 95: Icici project

ICICI have toupgrade and constantly think of new innovative customized packages and

services to remain competitive. The invasion of banking by technology has created an

information age and commoditization of banking services. ICICI have come to realize that

survival in the new e-economy depends on delivering some or all of their banking services on

the Internet while continuing to support their traditional infrastructure. The rise of E-banking

is redefining business relationships and the most successful banks will be those that can truly

strengthen their relationship with their customers. Without any doubt, the international scope

of E-banking provides new growth perspectives and Internet business is a catalyst for new

technologies and new business processes.
