In general, banking may be classified as retail and corporate banking.

Corporate banking, on the other hand, caters to the need of corporate customers like bills discounting, opening letters of credit, managing cash, etc. Metamorphic changes took place in the Indian financial system during the eighties and nineties consequent upon deregulation and liberalization of economic policies of the government.

Consequently, services such as Demat, Internet banking, Portfolio Management, Venture capital, etc, came into existence to cater to the needs of public.
An important agenda for every banker today is greater operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. The mew watchword for the bank is pretty ambitious: customer delight. The introduction to the marketing concept to banking sectors can be traced back to American Banking Association Conference of 1958. Banks marketing can be defined as the part of management activity, which seems to direct the flow of banking services profitability to the customers. The marketing concept basically requires that there should be thorough understanding of customer need and to learn about market it operates in.
Further the market is segmented so as to understand the requirement of the customer at a profit to the banks. DEFINITION OF BANK The Oxford dictionary defines the Bank as, “An establishment for the custody of money, which it pays out, on a customer’s order. ” According to Whitehead, “ A Bank is defined as an institution which collects surplus funds from the public, safeguards them, and makes them available to the true owner when required and also lends sums be their true owners to those who are in need of funds and can provide security. ” Banking Company in India has been defined in the Banking Companies act 1949, One which transacts the business of banking which means the accepting, for the purpose of lending or investment of the deposits of money from the public, repayable on demand, or otherwise and withdraw able be cheque, draft, order or otherwise. ” The banking system is an integral subsystem of the financial system.

They have been carrying on their age-old banking operations in different parts of the country under different names. The modern age of banking constitutes the fundamental basis of economic growth. The term Bank is being used since long time but there is no clear conception regarding its beginning. According to the viewpoint, in good old days. Italian money leaders were known as “Banchi” because they kept a special type of table to transact their business.
IMPORTANCE OF BANKS Today banks have become a part and parcel of Kotak Bank’s life. There was a time when dwellers of the city alone could enjoy their services. Now banks offer access to even a common man and their activities extend to areas hitherto untouched. Banks cater to the needs of agriculturalists, industrialists, traders and to all the other sections of the society. In modern age, the banking constitutes the fundamental basis of economic growth. Thus, they accelerate the economic growth of a country and steer the wheels of the economy towards its goals of “self reliance in all fields”.

Indian Banking System Banking in India has its origin as early as the Vedic period. It was believed that transition from money lending to banking must have occurred even before Manu, The great Hindu Jurist, who has devoted a section of his work to deposit advance and laid down rules relating to rates of interest. During the Mogul period, the indigeneousBankers played a very important role in lending money financing foreign trade and commerce.
During the days of East India Company, it was turn over the agency houses to carry on the business. “The General Bank of India” was the first to join sector in the year 1786. The others that followed were the Bank of Hindustan and the Bengal bank. The bank of Hindustan is reported to have continued till 1906 while the other two failed in the meantime.

In India 20 banks were nationalized in 1969 and 1980 respectively. Social welfare is there main objective. PRIVATE SECTOR BANKS
These banks are those banks that are owned and run by private sector. An individual has control over these banks in proportion to the shares of the banks held by him.

For much of the last decade the process of collaborated financial liberalization had cleared up the Bank’s balance sheet enabling them to with stand increased competition, global financing, turmoil and even unprotected industrial slow down.
But the cycle of liberalization has run its full course. Now it is the time for the big structural leap, rationalization, mergers, and privatization. Unless the banks undertake these fundamental changes, their profit will stay under pressure. There are twp areas of competitions which banking industry is facing internationally and nationally. In the pre-liberalization era, Indian banks could grow in a closed economy but the banking sector opened up for private competition. It is possible that private banks could become dominant players even within India.
It has been recorded a rapid rise of the new private sector banks and it has tracked the transformation of the public sector banks as they grapple with the changes of financial deregulation. Use of ATM cards, Internet Banking, Phone Banking, Mobile Banking are the new innovative channels of banking which are being widely used as they result in saving both time and money which are two essential things that every one is short of and is running to catch hold of them. Moreover private sector banks are aligning its infrastructures, marketing quality and technology to build deep commitment in building consumer and retail banking.
The main focus of these banks is on innovative range of services or products. STRUCTURE OF BANKING SYSTEM Different countries of the world have different types of banking systems. However, commercial banking had grown under all these banking systems. To understand the structure of banking system, let us take up various types of banking systems one by one. These types are: (1) UNIT BANKING Unit Banking originated in the United State of America. It grew in the United States of America. As a counter part of independent or industrial units. An independent unit bank is a corporation that operates one office and that is not related to other banks through either ownership or control. Shaper, Solomon and White. Thus under unit banking, a single bank is a complete organization in itself having its own management. The scale of operation is small and the area is restricted to a locality only. Unit banking is localized banking and is much more responsive to the needs of the locality. It has better understanding of the local problems and conditions, which helps it to cater to the needs of the area in a better way.
The staff of the unit bank is generally local and is in a better position to determine the standing or desirability of the customers. The failure of the unit bank will not endanger the banking system and economy. It is free from the difficulties and diseconomies of large scale operations. It will not drain out the financial resources of villages and small towns to big industrial centers and will ensure a balanced growth. (2) BRANCH BANKING: Economic and Managerial problems faced by the unit banks let to the emergence of banking system. Now, This the most popular and important banking system.
In branch banking, a bank has a large network of branches scattered all over the country. Branch banking developed in England. Subsequently most of the countries of the world adopted the system. In terms of branches, the State Bank of India has emerged as one of the largest banks in the world. As under the system the resources of a number of branches get pooled under the same management, any individual branch is in a better position to face excessive withdrawals by the customers. It facilitates diversification of activities because the area covered by the branches is generally widespread.
Under the system branches can operate without keeping large idle cash reserves. It becomes possible for the bank to hire the services of competent and professionally qualified managers, capable of understanding the handling technical problems and complex situations. The cost of remitting or transferring funds from one place to another works out to be less. The staff stays at a branch only for a limited period, so the chances of objective decision making in the branch banking are high. Branch Banking tends to bring homogeneity in the prevailing Interest Rates as it increases the mobility of resources from one place to another.
It is easier for the Central Bank to exercise Control. It will communicate only with a few Registered /Head Offices of the Banks and not with each individual branch. In this system there more safety and liquidity of funds. The choice of securities and investments is larger. Branch banking makes complete banking services available to the smallest communities. The branches in small localities can be initially operated at loss in expectation of future gains. The comparative study of unit banking and branch banking is a case of small scale banking versus large scale banking. It is evident that the scale is clearly titled towards branch banking.
With the growth of large scale business it is no wonder that the trend is almost every country towards the branch banking i. e. big banks with a network of branches all over the country. Even in the U. S. A. The birthplace of unit banking. The Bank of America has now more than 500 branches in the state of California itself. (3) CHAIN BANKING : Shaper, Solomon and White have defined Chain Banking as “An arrangements by which two or more banks –each of which retains its identity, capital and personnel –are brought under common control by any device other than a Holding Company. ” Under the system there is pooling of resources.
Chain banking overcomes certain limitations of unit banking. But the system suffers from certain limitations of its own. There may be a lack of co-ordination, proper control etc. The system is inflexible. (4) GROUP BANKING : It is similar to Chain Banking, the difference being that under Group Banking two or more banks are brought under the control of the same management through a Holding Company. Both the systems aim at gaining the advantages of large scale operations. The banks are able to pool their resources in case of emergency or when large amount of cash is required to meet the loan requirements of the customer.
The advantages and disadvantages of both the systems are similar. Both the systems developed in the United State of America as a result of attempts to overcome the difficulties or limitations of unit banking. (5) CORRESPONDENT BANKING: Under Correspondent banking, small banks serving local communities hold deposits with joint banks serving in big cities. This kind of banking is prevalent in U. S. A. The correspondent banks perform two important services of outstation cheque clearing and loan participation for the respondent banks while they benefit for the deposit funds of respondent banks.
A) COMMERCIAL BANKS [pic] PRIMARY FUNCTIONS : 1) Accepting of Deposits : A bank accepts deposits from the public. People can deposit their cash balances in either of the following accounts to their convenience:- a. Fixed or Time Deposit Account : Cash is deposited in this account for a fixed period. The depositor gets receipts for the amount deposited. It is called Fixed Deposit Receipt. The receipt indicates the name of the depositor, amount of deposit, rate of interest and the period of deposit. This receipt is not transferable.
If the depositor stands in need of the amount before the expiry of fixed period, he can withdraw the same after paying the discount to the bank. b. Savings Account : This type of deposit suits to those who just want to keep their small savings in a bank and might need to withdraw them occasionally. Banks provide a certain rate of interest on the minimum balance kept by the depositor during the month. c. Current Account : This type of account is kept by the businessman who are required to withdraw money every new and then. Banks do not pay any interest on this account.
Any sum or any number of withdrawals can be presented by such an account holder. 2) Advancing of Loans : The bank advances money in any one of the following ways. a. Overdraft Facilities : Customers of good trading are allowed to overdraw from their current account. But they have to pay interest on extra amount they have withdrawn. Overdrafts are allowed to provide temporary accommodation since the extra amount withdrawn is payable within a short period. b. Money at Call : It is the money lent for a very short period varying from 1 to 14 days.
Such advances are usually made to other banks and financial institutions only. Money at call ensures liquidity. In the Interbank market it enables bank to make adjustment according to their liquidity requirements. c. Loans : Loans are granted by the banks on securities which can be easily disposed off in the market. When the bank has satisfied itself regarding the soundness of the party, a loan is advanced. d. Cash Credit : The Debtor is allowed to withdraw a certain amount on a given security. The debtor withdraws the amount within this limit, interest is charged by the bank on the amount actually withdrawn. . Discounting Bill of Exchange : It is another method of making advances by the banks. Under this method, bank give advance to their clients on the basis of their bills of exchange before the maturity of such bills. f. Investment in Government Securities : Purchasing of government securities by the banks tantamount to advancing loans by them to the Government. Banks prefer to buy government securities as these are considered to be the safest investment. For example : Indira Vikas Patra : It enables the banks to meet requirement of statutory liquidity ratio (SLR) ) Credit Creation :One of the main functions of banks these days is to create credit. Banks create credit by giving more loans than their cash reserves. Banks are able to create credit because the demand deposits i. e. a claim against the bank is accepted by the public in settlement of their debts. In this process the bank creates money. For this reason Prof. Sayers has called bank “the manufactures of money. ” 4) Cheque system of Payment of Funds A cheque, a negotiable instrument, which in fact is a bill of exchange, drawn upon a banker, is the most popular credit instrument used by the client to make payments.
Cheque system is the main credit instrument in the banking world. Although a cheque is not a legal tender money, the serves as a medium of exchange in a limited way as it is a negotiable instrument. Because of “clearing houses” and “clearing” operations of the banks, cheques can be and are used for transferring funds from one centre to another. In the modern days they can also be used for transferring funds from one country to another. SECONDARY FUNCTIONS Besides the above primary functions, banks also perform may secondary functions such as agency functions, general utility and social functions.

Sometimes banks also undertake income tax services on behalf of the customers. iv) Remittance of Funds : The Commercial banks remit funds on behalf of clients from one place to another through cheques, drafts, mail transfers etc. ) Representation and Correspondence : Sometimes commercial banks acts as representatives or correspondents of the clients especially in handling various applications.

[pic] SUGGESTIONS Based on the study conducted, There are some of the suggestions given by the customers of how the modern banking should be.
These are the comment given by them about the improvement of the banking sector in India. ? Banks should obey the RBI norms and provide facilitiesas per the norms, which are not being followed by the banks. While the customer must be given prompt services and the bank officer should not have any fear on mind to provide the facilities as per RBI norms to the units going sick. ? Banks should increase the rate of saving account ? Banks should provide loan at the lower interest rate and education loans should be given with ease without much documentation. All the banks must provide loans against shares. ? Fair dealing with the customers. More contribution from the employee of the bank.
The staff Should be co-operative, friendly and must be capable of understanding the problems of customers ? Internet banking facility must be made available in all the banks. ? Prompt dealing with permanent customers and speedy transaction without harassing the customers ? Each section of every bank should be computerized even in rural areas also. ? Real time gross settlement can play a very important role. ? More ATM coverage should be provided for the convenience of the customers. ? No limit on cash withdrawls on ATM cards. ? The bank should bring out new schemes at time-to-time so that more people can be attracted. Even some gifts and prizes may be offered to the customers for their retention. 24 hours banking should be induced so as to facilitate the customers who may not have a free time in the daytime. It will help in facing the competition more effectively. ? The charges for saving account opening are high, so they should also be reduced. ? Customers generally complain that full knowledge is not granted to them. Thus the bank should properly disclose the features of the product and services to the customers. Moreover door to door services can also be introduced by bank. ? The need of the customer should properly be understood so that customer feels satisfied. The relationship value should be maintained. ? The branch should promote cooperation and coordination among employees which help them in efficient working. Maintenance of proper hierarchy should be done. A good hierarchy set up can ensure better results with in the bank. Banking sector is improving by leaps but still it needs to be improved. Proper and efficient relationship staffs having knowledge for one stop banking, customer friendly atmosphere, and better rate of interest are need of the hour. the concept of privatization has overall improved the services in all the banks. Home banking will be order of the day. Recommendations For Public Sector Banks: • Bank staff should be customer friendly and highly motivated to serve the normal customer. • As far as possible, banks should reduce its documentation process while providing loans. Computerization should be done in banks at all level and the operators should de properly trained. • Token system should be induced so as to minimize the waiting lines in the banks. • Proper ambience in the banks can develop a healthy working culture. • Quick services should be provided. For Private sector Banks • 24 hours banking should be induced so as to facilitate the customers who may not have free time in the day time. It will help in facing the competition more effectively. • More ATM coverage should be provided for the convenience of the customers. • Customer care services should be provided by banks. CONCLUSION
The customers now days are not only exposed of what type of service is being provided by banks in India but in the world as a whole. They expect much more than what is actually being provided. So the new coming banking sector has to provide and cater to all the needs of the customers otherwise it is difficult to survive in the competition coming up. They not only expect the safety of money but also best ways to invest that money which need needs to be fulfilled. Banks need to have a better outlook towards to actually what customers are requiring. Entries of the private sector banks have made the competition tougher. If a bank is not functioning properly it is being closed. So it is difficult to face these types of conditions.
Here a simple philosophy can work that customers are God and we need to follow this to survive and serve better. The banking sector is poised for explosive growth. In this, scenario, it is imperative that banks adopt technology at an aggressive Pace, if they wish to remain competitive. Mani Mamallan makes a case for banks to outsource their technology infrastructure requirement, thus enabling early adoption and increased efficiencies. In the prevailing scenario, a number of banks have adopt a new deployment strategy of infrastructure outsourcing, to lower the cost of service channels. As a result, other banks too will need to align their reinvented business models. The required changes at both the business and technology levels are enormous.
In a highly competitive banking markets, early adopters are profiting from increased efficiencies. BIBLIOGRAPHY BOOKS: ? Kothari C. R.
