The banking sector has been undergoing a complex, but comprehensive phase of restructuring since 1991, with a view to make it sound, efficient and at the same time forging its links firmly with the real sector for promotion of savings, investment and growth. Although a complete turnaround in banking sector performance is not expected till the completion of reforms, signs of improvement are visible in some indicators under the CAMEL framework. Under this bank is required to enhance capital adequacy, strengthen asset quality, improve management, increase earnings and reduce sensitivity to various financial risks. The almost simultaneous nature of these developments makes it difficult to disentangle the positive impact of reforms measures. Keeping this in mind, signs of improvements and deteriorations are discussed for the three groups of scheduled banks in the following sections. The whole banking scenario has changed in the very recent past has changed in the very recent past on the recommendations of Narasimham committee. Further BASELL II Norms were introduced to internationally standardize processes and make the banking industry more adaptive to the sensitive market risks. The fact that banks work under the most volatile conditions and the banking industry as such in the booming phase makes it an interesting subject of study. Amongst these reforms and restructuring the CAMELS Framework has its own contribution to the way modern baking is looked up on now. The attempt here is to see how various ratios have been used and interpreted to reveal a banks performance and how this particular model encompasses a wide range of parameters making it a widely used and accepted model in todays scenario.

A financing method which provides loan services to retail consumers for goods and services. Retail credit facilities lend funds to consumers wishing to purchase high ticket items but are short on capital. Thus, retail credit facilities may enable a greater number of consumers access to a retailers goods. In other words, retail credit facilities can take the form of point of sale finance options in retail outlets. Retail credit facilities give the option of consuming now or consuming in the future . higher interest rates may be acceptable to some consumers, depending on the consumers unique consumption utilities. The risk of default is a factor that determines the interest rate that retail credit facilities charge. Credit history The credit counselling centres advise based on the credit history of the customer. In India, CIBIL has built up a fairly large volume of database, although large scale cleansing of data has been an issue for CIBIL. The efforts to built a robust credit history need to be continued. The role of credit counselling in development of a healthy financial market has been proved to be significant in the developed and emerging economies. The counselling assumes added importance in emerging economies where the customers are not very financially knowledgeable and experience asymmetry in financial information on the innovative products and services offered. The role of credit counselling in retail segment is hugely important where these asymmetries are largely present. An early attempt to address the challenges and issues would go a long way in establishing a healthy credit counselling process and ensuring a sound and robust financial appropriate sharing of customer information by credit counselling centres and CIBIL would also go a long way in building a reliable credit history.

Role of retail credit Credit information bureaus are agencies that collect, process, and maintain credit record of borrowers and make them available to lending institutions in its network. This information is distributed for a fee to lenders, who use it to decide whether to approve a given credit application, how much credit to offer to a specific borrower, and on what terms. Credit information bureaus are known as credit reporting, intelligence or reference agencies; and also as credit registries. Credit reports help both the lenders and prospective borrowers. While lenders use it to reduce default rates and application processing time, borrowers use it to secure expenditious credit sanctions and better loan rates by keeping their payment history in good shape. Credit reports perform the secondary function of limiting will full default by increasing the cost of default for a borrower. In developed countries where credit bureau mechanism is well entrenched, individuals have to worry about having a good credit history, because for them it not only impacts the cost and access to credit across the financial system, but also the access to other services like rental accommodation.


It includes exposures to individuals or small businesses. Retail banking activities are identified based on four criteria of orientation, granularity, product criterion and low value of individual exposures. In essence, these qualifiers imply that retail exposures should be to individuals or small businesses (whose annual turnover is limited to Rs. 0.50 billion) and could take any form of credit like cash credit, overdrafts etc. Retail banking exposures to one entity is limited to the extent of 0.2% of the total retail portfolio of the bank or the absolute limit of Rs. 50 million. Retail banking products on the liability side includes all types of deposit accounts and mortgages and loans (personal, housing, educational etc) on the assets side of banks. It also includes other ancillary products and services like credit cards, demat accounts etc. The retail portfolio of banks accounted for around 21.3% of the total loans and advances of SCBs as at end-March 2009. The major component of the retail portfolio of banks is housing loans, followed by auto loans. Retail banking segment is a well diversified business segment. Most banks have a significant portion of their business contributed by retail banking activities. The largest players in retail banking in India are ICICI Bank, SBI, PNB, BOI, HDFC and Canara Bank. Among the large banks, ICICI bank is a major player in the retail banking space which has had definitive strategies in place to boost its retail portfolio. It has a strong focus on movement towards cheaper channels of distribution, which is vital for the transaction intensive retail business. SBIs retail business is also fast growing and a strategic business unit for the bank. Among the smaller banks, many have a visible presence especially in the auto loans business. Among these banks the reliance on their respective retail portfolio is high, as many of these banks have advance portfolios that are concentrated in certain usages, such as auto or consumer durables. Foreign banks have had a somewhat restricted retail portfolio till recently. However, they are fast expanding in this business segment. The retail banking industry is likely to see a high competition scenario in the near future.

The Retail Banking Report encompasses extensive study & analysis of this rapidly growing sector. It primarily covers analysis of the present status, current trends, major issues & challenges in the growth of the retail banking sector.

The bankers being aware of the fact that the plain vanilla products cannot satisfy the demanding customers. Several creamy layers have developed . One such nourishing layer is the introduction of retail banking services. Retail banking segment is continuously undergoing innovations, product re-engineering, adjustments and alignments. A remarkable shift in the Indian economy from the manufacturing sector to a budding service sector (Banking) can be witnessed in recent years. The banking scenario in India is at the crossroads and is continuously evolving, but the progress has been remarkable over the past decade.

Retail lending across the globe has been a showcase of innovation in the commercial banking sector. Countries like China and India have emerged as potential markets with huge investment opportunities. The higher growth of retail lending in emerging economies is attributable to fast growth of personal wealth, favorable demographic profile, rapid development in information technology, the conducive macro economic environment, financial market reforms, and several micro level supply side factors. The retail banking strategies of banks are undergoing major transformation, as banks adopt a mix of strategies like organic growth, acquisitions and alliances. This has resulted in paradigm shift in the marketing strategies of the banks. Public Sector Banks players are adopting aggressive strategies, leveraging their branch network and their customer vase to earn a larger share of the retail pie. Banks are also going in for innovative strategies like cross selling and packaged selling of retail products. At the same time, new foreign players are also entering this high growth sector. The boom in retail banking has helped in increasing the competition from upcoming sectors like mutual funds. The banking scenario in India is at the crossroads and is continuously evolving, but progress has been remarkable over the past decade. With the exponential growth of touch points and sophistication, the frontline sales force is assuming the role of a relationship personal is continuously under the microscopic observation of the customer. At a time when channel innovation has become the order of the day to encourage effective banking habits among customers, a vital component of the supply chain namely, customer interface is totally missing. With the advent of liberalization the banking industry hadmade a head start towards the best banking practices at each interaction point of the supply chain. However the Indian landscape is not a replica of the west and is in fact unique.


Retail banking in India has fast emerged as one of the major drivers of the overall banking industry and has witnessed enormous growth in the recent past. The Retail Banking Report encompasses extensive study & analysis of this rapidly growing sector. It primarily covers analysis of the present status, current trends, major issues & challenges in the growth of the retail banking sector. This report helps in Banks, financial institutions, MNC Banks, academicians, consultants and researchers to have a better understanding of the booming opportunities in retail banking in India. The retail banking strategies of banks are undergoing major transformation, as banks adopt a mix of strategies like organic growth, acquisitions and alliances. This has resulted in a paradigm shift in the marketing strategies of the banks. Public Sector Banks players are adopting aggressive strategies, leveraging their rural branch network and their customer vase to earn a larger share of the retail pie. Banks are also going in for innovative strategies like cross selling, packaged selling of retail products and technology based banking. At the same time, new foreign players are also entering this high growth sector



Though Canara Bank is trying to grow organically at 23% this year to reach a business-mix of Rs. 4,00,000 crore by opening 200 new branches as well as 10 overseas braches, Chairman & Managing Director AC Mahajan had recently opined that mergers and acquisitions are the only way to grow. This hints at the pressures the bank is facing in competing with players one rung above them like State Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, Bank of Baroda, Bank of India, and Union Bank of India. Canara Bank is one of the four public sector banks (PSBs) that has a significant exposure to the troubled national carrier Air India. The airline has sought more time from Canara Bank to repay its existing loans. A medium-sized public sector bank (PSB), Canara Bank has completed selecting 1800 new employees, which might add strain in a recessionary environment, especially since there is still no performance-based pay structure in place. Canara Bank needs to put such a structure in place as nearly 20% of its 45,000 workforce will retire within three years. Canara Banks Net Interest Margin (NIM) is still below the comfortable 3%, unlike many of its peers. The bank faces an uphill task in improving NIM. Canara Bank has recently put on hold a plan for selling its Non Performing Assets (NPAs) as there were no takers from the Asset Reconstruction Companies (ARCs). But it might cause Canara Bank some strain, with the worsening loan-to-value (LTV) ratios, especially in commercial properties. Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) has recently halted trading in derivatives of Canara Bank. The public sector bank apparently couldnt meet the guidelines set forth by BSE. Canara Bank is the only bank to have this trading facility stopped. Moodys Investors Service has placed Canara Banks rating on watch for a possible downgrade. The South based PSU lender is re-strategizing. From a focus on wholesale segments like infrastructure and short-term corporate loans, it is taking a momentous shift to higher-yield sectors like retail, agriculture, MSME etc. In fact, much of its sluggish performance in Q4 was due to this plan already finding traction. After disturbed by accounts like Air India and SEBs, the top management under Chairman S Raman has consciously decided to chase quality rather than quantity. CanBank has also corrected weaknesses in its CASA strategy to better its NIMs going forward. The mid-sized public sector

lenders Q4 bottomline is 7.77% lower on a year-on-year basis, and 5.31% on a quarter-on-quarter basis. Not a very adverse development, compared to a couple of peers whose bottomline slipped into red in this quarter. But the core question is, is it only a case of net profit dipping? Well, on most other metrics, Canara has shown stable growth. Core income is up by nearly 29% YoY, and nearly 6% sequentially, which shows that the banks core topline hasnt slowed down at all even in this difficult period for credit growth. Other Income has remained stable on a quarter-on-quarter basis. The bank could also well contain expansion in non-interest expenses, with it remaining almost flat at 1.34%. Despite interest expenses swelling, CanBank could also post a 3.4% increase in Net Interest Income on a YoY basis. On the asset quality front too, there were improvements, with Gross NPAs moderating from 1.81% to 1.73% sequentially, while Net NPAs bettered slightly by falling from 1.49% to 1.46% on a YoY basis. On a sequential basis, there was a small up-tick in NNPAs. S Raman, Chairman & Managing Director of Canara Bank has made it clear that the bank could have had better performance in the quarter, if not for some conscious decisions it took in formulating a new battle-plan for FY13. The first decision was to go slow on wholesale or large-ticket loans. Canara Bank especially had high exposures to two kinds of such loans - infrastructure loans and short-term corporate loans. The figures for the whole year, made available with Q4 numbers, show that the bank could reduce short-term corporate loans by over Rs. 10,000 crore. The strategy seems very sound as in lieu of large volume of business, these loans are not only of lower yield, but also of relatively higher risk. Under CMD Raman, Canara has also completed the detailed process of acquiring a handle or consolidating its position on all its assets, and this has enabled him to confidently state that, going forward, only some restructuring would be the only major task before the bank as far as asset quality is concerned. But a closer look at this restructuring requirements, reveals that much of it has to do with its exposure to State Electricity Boards (SEBs). But then, apart from the temporary pressure it exerts on the finances, such government company loan assets held by a government bank is not really thought of as serious NPAs in most countries due to the very low chance of default. Even in this quarter, nearly a third of its restructuring in this quarter of around Rs. 4500 crore was towards its Air India account, which has received much attention and support from government ensuring that slippages are a remote possibility. Apart from a Rs. 5000 crore restructuring for SEBs, what will remain is less than Rs. 1000 crore of such requirement in a few assorted accounts, which shows that Canara Bank is indeed in a better shape than many comparable PSU banks on the asset quality front. Provisions were already lower in the quarter by 16.8%, falling to Rs. 662 crore from Rs. 796 crore in the corresponding year-ago period. The battle plan that Chairman Raman has crafted together with his top management starts with an aggressive campaign for bettering their CASA profile. In fact, it has already started yielding results, with Savings Bank accounts showing a growth of nearly 11%. Now the bank

is focusing more on bettering its Current Accounts where there is significant room for improvement, as due to some technological challenges in their IT infrastructure, the bank was forced to go slow on this front. But that has been fixed now, and Current Accounts will receive high focus from now on. Bettering CASA profile will benefit Canara much, as during Q4, what hurt it most was a YoY hit on Net Interest Margin (NIM) due to rise in deposit costs outpacing rise in yield on advances.



Interest rate, possessing fees, tenure, security and margin money all these are very important an all kinds of retail loans. So banks should revise all above keeping in view all other banks. Bank should appoint some marketing executives for this purpose who can give information of market and other banks. These marketing executives gives report head office directly for timely processing so that the market can be fully captured as early as possible. Limit of loan amount of all retail loans should keep increasing keeping in view the private sector banks and other nationalised bank. One of the major strength of UCO bank is timely possessing of loan application. So it must keep on processing the loan application with in the time line to get a competitive edge over other banks. The bank must ensure a systematic follow up of the loans sanctioned in order to reduce non-performing assets. A special officer should be appointed for the recovery of loans. The bank must take step to strengthen its phone banking services so that minor queries of loan applicants can be resolved telephonically and it can help the bank in building a loyal customer base. In order to mobilize fresh retail business, the bank should adopt an aggressive market strategy. This can be done by launching retail loan festival campaign offering various concessions during the campaign period. Memorandum of understanding should be signed with a number of contractors and builders so that bank can finance the housing loan of all those who are investing in that particular project. Tie ups can also be entered into with car manufacturing companies for increasing the auto loan section. The bank with assistance of insurance companies can provide life insurance cover to education loan and home loan customer under special packages.
