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. 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 reason 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 dials a pizza. Money has 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

Definition of the Bank:- Financial institution whose primary activity is to act as a payment agent for customers and to borrow and lend money. Banks are important players of the market and offer services as loans and funds. Banking was originated in 18th century First bank were General Bank of India and Bank of Hindustan, now defunct. Punjab National Bank and Bank of India was the only private bank in 1906. Allahabad bank first fully India owned bank in 1865.

Types Of Banking
Commercial bank has two meanings: 1. Commercial bank is the term used for a normal bank to distinguish it from an investment bank. (After the great depression, the U.S. Congress required that banks only engage in banking activities, whereas investment banks were limited to capital markets activities. This separation is no longer mandatory.) 2. Commercial bank can also refer to a bank or a division of a bank that mostly deals with deposits and loans from corporations or large businesses, as opposed to normal individual members of the public (retail banking). It is the most successful department of banking.

Community development bank are regulated banks that provide financial services and credit to underserved markets or populations.

Private banks manage the assets of high net worth individuals. Offshore banks are banks located in jurisdictions with low taxation and regulation. Many offshore banks are essentially private banks.

Savings banks accept savings deposits. Postal savings banks are savings banks associated with national postal systems.

There are some examples of banks in India: Private sector bank HDFC, ICICI, Axis bank, Yes bank, Kotak Mahindra bank, Bank of Rajasthan United bank of India, Syndicate bank, National bank for agriculture and rural development (NABARD) Rural bank

Commercial bank State Bank, Central Bank, Punjab National Bank, HSBC, ICICI, HDFC etc. Retail bank BOB, PNB Deutsche bank Universal bank

CONSOLIDATION OF INDIAN BANKING SECTOR As mentioned by Governor Jalan in his address to this forum in 2002, "In financial systems worldwide, todays buzzwords are competition, consolidation and stability". There has been impressive stability and considerable competition in India but the process of consolidation in banking industry has just commenced. The issue of consolidation has been addressed by the Narasimham Committee Report on Banking Sector Reforms (1998) but the issue in regard to policy is yet to be pursued vigorously. There are three aspects to consolidation viz. 1. clear cut legal and regulatory regime governing consolidation, 2. enabling policy framework especially where several banks are owned by Government, 3. And market conditions that facilitate such consolidation. Recognizing that all mergers and acquisitions may not necessarily be in the interest of either the parties concerned or the system as a whole RBI's stated policy currently would permit acquisitions of any Indian private sector bank after 2009. As per the policy in 2009, a determined foreign player could acquire any Indian private sector bank, the best assets in the market place. Current banking sector can be divided in the following categories Types of banks

Central Bank Banks (RBI, in India)

Development Banks

Specialized (EXIM Banks,


Commercial Banks (i) (ii) Public Sector Banks Private Sector Banks Banks (iii) Foreign Banks

Co-operative Banks (i) (ii) Primary Credit Societies Central Co-operative

To study the changes in the banking system over the years. To evaluate the current situation in the banking industry by fundamental analysis. Comparative study of banking companies. To determine the future direction of the stocks by technical analysis. To learn about the reforms in the banking sector.



A healthy banking system is essential for any economy striving to achieve good growth and yet remain stable in an increasingly global business environment. The Indian banking system, with one of the largest banking networks in the world, has witnessed a series of reforms over the past few years like the deregulation of interest rates, dilution of the government stake in public sector banks (PSBs), and the increased participation of private sector banks. The growth of the retail financial services sector has been a key development on the market front. Indian banks (both public and private) have not only been keen to tap the domestic market but also to compete in the global market place. Studying the increasing business scope of the bank. Market segmentation to find the potential customers for the bank. Customers perception on the various products of the bank. The corporate sector has stepped up its demand for credit to fund its expansion plans; there has also been a growth in retail banking. The report seeks to present a comprehensive picture of the various types of bank. The banks can be broadly classified into two categories: Nationalize Bank Private Bank

Within each of these broad groups, an attempt has been made to cover as comprehensively as possible, under the various sub-groups.

About Sh. Dhirubhai Ambani

Few men in history have made as dramatic a contribution to their countrys economic fortunes as did the founder of Reliance, Sh. Dhirubhai H Ambani. Fewer still have left behind a legacy that is more enduring and timeless. As with all great pioneers, there is more than one unique way of describing the true genius of Dhirubhai: The corporate visionary, the unmatched strategist, the proud patriot, the leader of men, the architect of Indias capital markets, the champion of shareholder interest. But the role Dhirubhai cherished most was perhaps that of Indias greatest wealth creator. In one lifetime, he built, starting from the proverbial scratch, Indias largest private sector enterprise. When Dhirubhai embarked on his first business venture, he had a seed capital of barely US$ 300 (around Rs 14,000). Over the next three and a half decades, he converted this fledgling enterprise into a Rs 60,000 crore colossusan achievement which earned Reliance a place on the global Fortune 500 list, the first ever Indian private company to do so. Dhirubhai is widely regarded as the father of Indias capital markets. In 1977, when Reliance Textile Industries Limited first went public, the Indian stock market was a place patronised by a small club of elite investors which dabbled in a handful of stocks. Undaunted, Dhirubhai managed to convince a large number of first-time retail investors to participate in the unfolding Reliance story and put their hard-earned money in the Reliance Textile IPO, promising them, in exchange for their trust, substantial return on their investments. It was to be the start of one of great stories of mutual respect and reciprocal gain in the Indian markets. Under Dhirubhais extraordinary vision and leadership, Reliance scripted one of the greatest growth stories in corporate history anywhere in the world, and went on to become Indias largest private sector enterprise. Through out this amazing journey, Dhirubhai always kept the interests of the ordinary shareholder uppermost in mind, in the process making millionaires out of many of the initial investors in the Reliance stock, and creating one of the worlds largest shareholder families.

Fundamental Analysis involves examining the economic, financial and other qualitative and quantitative factors related to a security in order to determine its intrinsic value. It attempts to study everything that can affect the security's value, including macroeconomic factors (like the overall economy and industry conditions) and individually specific factors (like the financial condition and management of companies). Fundamental analysis, which is also known as quantitative analysis, involves delving into a companys financial statements (such as profit and loss account and balance sheet) in order to study various financial indicators (such as revenues, earnings, liabilities, expenses and assets). Such analysis is usually carried out by analysts, brokers and savvy investors. Many analysts and investors focus on a single number--net income (or earnings)--to evaluate performance. When investors attempt to forecast the market value of a firm, they frequently rely on earnings. Many institutional investors, analysts and regulators believe earnings are not as relevant as they once were. Due to nonrecurring events, disparities in measuring risk and management's ability to disguise fundamental earnings problems, other measures beyond net income can assist in predicting future firm earnings. Two Approaches of fundamental analysis While carrying out fundamental analysis, investors can use either of the following approaches: 1 .Top-down approach: In this approach, an analyst investigates both international and national economic indicators, such as GDP growth rates, energy prices, inflation and interest rates. The search for the best security then trickles down to the analysis of total sales, price levels and foreign competition in a sector in order to identify the best business in the sector. 2. Bottom-up approach: In this approach, an analyst starts the search with specific businesses, irrespective of their industry/region.


How Does fundamental analysis works ? Fundamental analysis is carried out with the aim of predicting the future performance of a company. It is based on the theory that the market price of a security tends to move towards its 'real value' or 'intrinsic value.' Thus, the intrinsic value of a security being higher than the securitys market value represents a time to buy. If the value of the security is lower than its market price, investors should sell it. The steps involved in fundamental analysis are: 1. Macroeconomic analysis, which involves considering currencies, commodities and indices. 2. Industry sector analysis, which involves the analysis of companies that are a part of the sector. 3. Situational analysis of a company. 4. Financial analysis of the company. 5. Valuation The valuation of any security is done through the discounted cash flow (DCF) model, which takes into consideration: 1. Dividends received by investors 2. Earnings or cash flows of a company 3. Debt, which is calculated by using the debt to equity ratio and the current ratio (current assets/current liabilities)

Benefits of fundamental analysis Fundamental analysis helps in: 1. Identifying the intrinsic value of a security. 2. Identifying long-term investment opportunities, since it involves real-time data. Drawbacks of fundamental analysis The drawbacks of fundamental analysis are: Too many economic indicators and extensive macroeconomic data can confuse novice investors. The same set of information on macroeconomic indicators can have varied effects on the same currencies at different times.It is beneficial only for long-term investments 27

Fundamental Analysis Tools These are the most popular tools of fundamental analysis. (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (vi) (vii) (viii) (ix) Ratio analysis Financial ratios are tools for interpreting financial statements to provide a basis for valuing securities and appraising financial and management performance. A good financial analyst will build in financial ratio calculations extensively in a financial modeling exercise to enable robust analysis. Financial ratios allow a financial analyst to: Standardize information from financial statements across multiple financial years to allow comparison of a firms performance over time in a financial model. Standardize information from financial statements from different companies to allow an apples to apples comparison between firms of differing size in a financial model. Measure key relationships by relating inputs (costs) with outputs (benefits) and facilitates comparison of these relationships over time and across firms in a financial model. Earnings per Share EPS Price to Earnings Ratio P/E Projected Earning Growth PEG Price to Sales P/S Price to Book P/B Dividend Payout Ratio Dividend Yield Book Value Return on Equity

In general, there are 4 kinds of financial ratios that a financial analyst will use most frequently, these are: Performance ratios Working capital ratios Liquidity ratios Solvency ratios

These 4 financial ratios allow a good financial analyst to quickly and efficiently address the following questions or concerns: Performance ratios What return is the company making on its capital investment? What are its profit margins?


Working capital ratios How quickly are debts paid? How many times is inventory turned?

Liquidity ratios Can the company continue to pay its liabilities and debts?

Solvency ratios (Longer term) What is the level of debt in relation to other assets and to equity? Is the level of interest payable out of profits?

Technical analysis is the practice of anticipating price changes of a financial instrument by analyzing prior price changes and looking for patterns and relationships in price history.

Since all the investors in the stock market want to make the maximum profits possible, they just cannot afford to ignore either fundamental or technical analysis.

The price of a security represents a consensus. It is the price at which one person agrees to buy and another agrees to sell. The price at which an investor is willing to buy or sell depends primarily on his expectations. If he expects the security's price to rise, he will buy it; if the investor expects the price to fall, he will sell it. These simple statements are the cause of a major challenge in forecasting security prices, because they refer to human expectations. As we all know firsthand, humans expectations are neither easily quantifiable nor predictable.

If prices are based on investor expectations, then knowing what a security should sell for (i.e., fundamental analysis) becomes less important than knowing what other investors expect it to sell for. That's not to say that knowing what a security should sell for isn't important--it is. But there is usually a fairly strong consensus of a stock's future earnings that the average investor cannot disprove.




Research comprises defining and redefining problems, formulating hypothesis or suggested solutions, collecting, organizing and evaluating data, making deductions and reaching conclusions and at last carefully testing the conclusions to determine whether they fit the formulating hypothesis.

Research methodology is a way to systematically solve the problems. It is a way of studying how research is done scientifically. It consists of various steps that are generally adopted by the researcher in studying his research problems along with the logic behind them.

Research design is a framework or the blue print for conducting the research project. Research design is the arrangement of conditions for collection and analysis of data in a manner that aims to combine relevance to the research purpose with economy in procedure. It includes an outline of what the researcher will do from writing the hypothesis and its operational implications to the final analysis of data.


Exploratory research design Descriptive research design Experimental research design



It is also termed as formulate research design. The main purpose of the study is to formulate a problem for more precise investigation.


In descriptive research design, those studies are taken which are concerned with describing the characteristics of a particular individual or a group.


In this casual relationships between the variables are tested. It is also known as hypothesis testing research design.

Sampling design
A Sample design is a definite plan for obtaining a sample from a given population. It is the procedure used by the researcher in selecting items for the sample.

Primary data are those data, which is originally collected. It is of following types questionnaire, interview, observation etc.

Secondary data are those data which are collected and which has been passed through statistical research. In this project, secondary data has been collected from following sources: Annual Reports Books Internet Other material and report published by company


Period of study The period of the study is 5 year i.e. (2008-2012). 5 year data of banks has been taken for the analysis. Tools These are the most popular tools of fundamental analysis. They focus on earnings, growth, and value in the market. (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v) (vi) (vii) (viii) (ix) (x) (xi) (xii) Techniques The technique used in the analysis of the company is excel sheets, graphs and tables of financial statement for example balance sheet, profit loss a/c, cash flow statement, dividend per share, ratio analysis, valuation ratio etc. Earnings per Share EPS Price to Earnings Ratio P/E Projected Earning Growth PEG Price to Sales P/S Price to Book P/B Dividend Payout Ratio Dividend Yield Book Value Ratio Analysis Liquid ratio Turnover ratio Valuation ratio




The fundamental analysis of the banking sector deals with: the effect of economy on the banking sector in the economic analysis, the baking industry as a whole in industrial analysis, the analysis of seven selected banking companies in company analysis.

ECONOMIC ANALYSIS GDP Economic analysis deals with forces operating in the economy which influences the banking sector. Any economy is best described by its GDP. Indian economy is the second fastest growing economy in the world. The global financial system is still far away from a full recovery on account of a slowdown in the US economy, the soft landing in China and the Euro debt crisis. The Indian banking sector has been relatively well shielded by the central bank and has managed to sail through most of the crisis. But, currently in light of slowing domestic GDP growth, persistent inflation, asset quality concerns and elevated interest rates, the investment cycle has been wavering in the country. The cost of borrowings was higher on account of the various monetary tightening measures undertaken by the central bank. People preferred to park their funds in higher yielding fixed deposits rather than current or savings account (CASA). CASA accretion slowed for most banks which led to a higher cost of funds. The savings bank account rate was deregulated by the RBI, however most banks continue to hold the rate at 4%. Apart from streamlining their processes through technology initiatives such as ATMs, telephone banking, online banking and web based products, banks also resorted to cross selling of financial products such as credit cards, mutual funds and insurance policies to augment their fee based income. They are also looking at various financial inclusion initiatives in order to spread the use of financial services among Indias large unbanked population.


Financial Year '12 The RBI had to revise its target for credit growth in FY12 a number of times given the external environment. From starting off with a prediction of 19% credit growth in May 2011, the central bank brought this estimate down to 16% in January 2012. Finally non-food credit growth came in at around 17% in FY12 compared to 21.5% in FY11. Against a backdrop of GDP growth deceleration, weak IIP data and persistent inflation banks became more risk averse to lending credit. This deceleration also reflects banks risk aversion in face of rising NPAs and increased leverage of corporate balance sheets. Credit growth decelerated across all bank groups during 2011-12 ranging between 16.3% in the case of public sector banks and 19.7% for private sector banks. The comparable figures for the previous year were 21% and 24.7% respectively. The RBIs has not yet rolled back its aggressive interest rate policy and rates continue to be elevated. The repo rate currently stands at 8%, with the reverse repo rate at 7%. While inflation continues to remain high the RBI has refrained from any further hikes in order to address the slowdown in growth. It may ease rates once inflation comes under control. Growth on the deposit front however remained relatively low coming in at around 13% YoY in FY12; this was as against an RBI target of 17%. Fixed deposits saw good growth, while demand deposits saw a deceleration on lower yields. The outstanding credit-deposit ratio rose from 74.5% FY11 to 76.7% in FY12.


In the retail portfolio, while home loans grew by 12% YoY, while vehicle loans grew by 20%. Overall Other personal loans enjoyed a much smaller growth of 8% YoY due to banks reluctance towards uncollateralized credit. Credit card outstanding grew by 13% YoY.

Indian banks, however, saw lower levels of money supply, and deposits as a percentage of GDP in FY12 as compared to that in FY11 on account of the uncertain economic environment. However credit as a % of GDP was higher as GDP growth slowed.

Most private sector banks had a relatively better outing in FY12. Increased pricing power helped some of these banks sustain their net interest margins. Plus they were also able to sustain their asset quality.

Net non performing assets (NPAs) in the system increased from 0.9% in FY11 to 1.2% in FY12. However for PSU banks this ratio increased from 1% in FY11 to 1.5% in FY12. Increased provisioning affected the profitability of the banks in question.


Banks in India can be categorized into non-scheduled banks and scheduled banks. Scheduled banks constitute of commercial banks and co-operative banks. There are 62 scheduled commercial banks. Among these, 25 banks are public sector banks in which government has the major stake. There are 24 private and 13 foreign sector banks operating in India. The commercial banks in India have an extensive network of branches all across the country. Nearly 78% of the banking industry asset is with the public sector bank. PORTER FIVE FORCES MODEL Bargaining power suppliers: It is high in the periods when there is tight liquidity. Being a service sector, human capital is one of the most important supplies to the sector. Public sector banks in India have big trade unions which are having high bargaining power. Establishment of well functioning capital market in India has given a choice to the depositors to invest instead of saving. Moreover, with the deregulation of the interest rate suppliers bargaining power has considerably increased. Bargaining power of customers: With large number of banks operating in India, the bargaining power of creditworthy borrowers is high. Development of capital markets in India has given an additional option to the businesses in India to source their funds. Threat of substitute products: With development well functioning capital market in India, investors have an opportunity to direct their savings into investment opportunities whenever they decide so. Even Corporate have an option of raising their capital through public issues, than for taking debt from banking companies. Threat of new entrant: After changes made in the regulation of the banks, many new private are coming up and foreign banks are considering entering India. Now RBI is coming up with new guidelines for NBFCs who wishes to start commercial banking operations. Competition Rivalry: Competition in banking sector is high due to presence of public sector, private sector banks and foreign banks along with non banking financial companies.

India may be one of the most populous countries on earth, but a small proportion of its population has access to a bank branch. As the case for financial inclusion grows, lenders are clamouring to take advantage of what has been described as 'the largest banking opportunity in the world'.

By the end of March 2012, near about 36000 banks reach rural areas, 26000 in semi urban areas, 18000 in urban area and 17000 banks in metropolitan area. Still large population of the country is still left to be covered by the banking sector. ICICI, a private sector bank has extensively started its operation in the rural areas. Similarly foreign sector banks are spending heavily to increase their operations in India.

The figure shows the year on year growth average of banks in India. The banks included are; All Private and public sector banks.

The figure clearly depicts the phenomenal growth rate that banking industry has achieved over the years. Growth rate shows that Banking Industry is still in its growth phase of life cycle in India. It is opposed to what the general perception of the people had about Indian Banking Industry to be in mature phase with very little opportunity of growth.


RISK INVOLVED IN THE BANKING SECTOR The risks associated with providing banking services differ by the type of service rendered. Risk is the danger of an adverse deviation in the actual result from an expected result. High returns are said to also accompany high risk. So the risks involved in the banking sector are:


CREDIT RISK CREDIT RISK Credit risk is defined as the potential that a bank borrower or counterparty will fail to meet its obligations in accordance with agreed terms. It is the negative consequence associated with the defaults or non- fulfilment of concluded contracts in lending operations due to deterioration in the counterpartys credit quality. The goal of credit risk management is to maximize a bank's risk-adjusted rate of return by maintaining credit risk exposure within acceptable parameters. Banks need to manage the credit risk inherent in the entire portfolio as well as the risk in individual credits or transactions. Banks should also consider the relationships between credit risk and other risks. The effective management of credit risk is a critical component of a comprehensive approach to risk management and essential to the long-term success of any banking organization. It consists of: 1. Counterparty default risk: this refers to the possibility that the other party in contract in an agreement will default. 2. Securitization risk: in recent world crisis that led to global recession was started due to improper management of the securitization risks. Securitization is a process of distributing risk by aggregating debt instruments in a pool and then issuing new securities backed by the pool. There are two types of securitizations viz., traditional and synthetic securitizations. A traditional securitization is one in which an originating bank transfers a pool of assets that it owns to an arms length special 41

purpose vehicle. Conversely, a synthetic securitization is one in which an originating bank transfers only the credit risk associated with underlying pool of assets through the use of credit-linked notes or credit derivatives while retaining the legal ownership of the pool of assets. 3. Concentration risk: it is any single exposure or group of exposures with the potential to produce losses large enough (relative to banks capital, total assets, or overall risk level) to threaten a banks health or ability to maintain its core operations. MARKET RISK Market risk is the risk of possible losses in, on- balance sheet and off balance sheet positions, due to movement in the market prices. The market risk positions, subject to capital charge requirement, are: 1. Interest Rate Risk (IRR): The risks pertaining to interest rate related instruments and equities in the trading book. IRR is defined as the change in banks portfolio value due to interest rate fluctuations. The IRR management in concerned with measurement and control of risk exposures, both in trading book (i.e. assets that are regularly traded and are liquid in nature) and the banking book (i.e. assets that are usually held till maturity and rarely traded). 2. Equity Price Risk: the risk arising due to fluctuation in market prices of equity due to general-market related operations. 3. Foreign exchange risk throughout the bank. The risk arises due to fluctuation in the exchange rate. OPERATIONAL RISK Operational risk is defined as the risk to loss resulting from inadequate or failed internal processes, people and systems or external events. This does not include strategic and reputational risk. Some of the factors for operational risk could be lack of competent management or proper planning and controls, incompetent staff, indiscipline, involvement of staff in frauds, outdated systems, non-compliance, programming errors, failure of computer systems, increased competition, deficiency in loan documentation etc. LIQUIDITY RISK Liquidity risk arises from the banks inability to meet its obligation when they come due. The various types of liquidity risks are: 42

1. Term Liquidity Risk: this risk arises due to unexpected prolongation of the capital commitment period in lending transactions. It is the unexpected delay in the repayment. 2. Withdrawal/Call Risk: it is the risk that more deposits will be withdrawn than expected. When large amount of deposits are taken away from the bank in a relatively span of time, it raises the risk that bank will not be able to meet all its obligations. 3. Structural Liquidity Risk: it is the risk that rises when the necessary funding

transactions cannot be carried out. The risk is sometime also called as funding liquidity risk. 4. Contingent Liquidity Risk: it is the risk associated with funding additional funds or replacing maturing liabilities under potential, future stressed market conditions. 5. Market Liquidity Risk: this is a risk which arises when positions cannot be sold within desired time period or could only be sold at a discount. This is especially the case with securities/derivatives in illiquid markets, or when bank hold such a large positions that they cannot be easily sold. OTHER RISKS 1. Strategic Risk: it refers to the negative impact on capital and earnings due to business policy decisions, changes in the macroeconomic environment, insufficient

implementation of decisions or failure to adopt in the changing economic environmental conditions. 2. Reputation Risk: it is the potential adverse effect that a bank can have if its reputation deviates negatively from its expected position. A banks reputation refers to its image in the eyes of interested public; the stakeholders. 3. Capital Risk: it is the imbalance in the internal capital structure in relation to the nature and size of the bank, or from difficulties associated with raising additional risk coverage capital quickly, if necessary. 4. Earnings Risk: this risk arises due to inadequate diversification of banks earnings or its inability to attain sufficient and lasting profitability.



To overcome the risk involved in the banking sector, banks have to maintain a minimum amount of capital base. The ratio of this capital base with respect to the credit, market and operational risk is known as Capital to Risk Weighted Assets Ratio and is calculated as follows: Total Eligible Capital Fund/ Risk Weighted Asset.
Table IV.12: Capital to Risk-Weighted Assets Ratio under Basel I and II Bank Group-wise (As at end-March) (Per cent) Bank Group 2011 1 Public sector banks Nationalised banks* SBI group Private sector banks Old private sector banks New private sector banks Foreign banks Scheduled commercial banks Note: *: Includes IDBI Bank Ltd. Source: Based on off-site returns submitted by banks. 2 11.78 12.15 11.01 15.15 13.29 15.55 17.71 13.02 Basel I 2012 3 11.88 11.84 11.97 14.47 12.47 14.90 17.31 12.94 Basel II 2011 4 13.08 13.47 12.25 16.46 14.55 16.87 16.97 14.19 2012 5 13.23 13.03 13.70 16.21 14.12 16.66 16.74 14.24

The capital to risk-weighted assets ratio (CRAR) remained well above the stipulated 9 per cent for the system as a whole as well as for all bank groups during 2011-12, indicating that Indian banks remained well-capitalised. Also, the CRAR (Basel II) at the system-level improved marginally compared with the previous year.


For analysis of banking companies, five banks were selected. The selection of these companies was on the basis of the unique shareholding pattern of those companies. The shareholders in a banking company are divided into six groups. These are Indian Promoters, Foreign collaborators, Indian inst/Mutual Fund, Foreign Institutional Investors, Global Depository Receipts (GDRs)/American Depository Receipts (ADRs), free float.

Shareholding pattern reveals how the shares of a company are divided among the various bodies that constitute its ownership. Before buying any stock, we research the company from all possible angles. We take into account the companys profit and loss, sales and debt, among other things and thus, try to gather as much information as possible about the business into which we are going to invest our hard-earned money so as to avoid nasty surprises in the future. This is also important because when we buy a share, we are not just buying a piece of paper, but also becoming a part owner of the business to the extent of the shareholding percentage. Here, I am presenting the shareholding pattern of five banks i.e. State bank of India, Punjab National Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank and Bank of Baroda.

A measure of a company's financial leverage calculated by dividing its total liabilities by stockholders' equity, it indicates what proportion of equity and debt the company is using to finance its assets. A high debt/equity ratio generally means that a company has been aggressive in financing its growth with debt. This can result in volatile earnings as a result of the additional interest expense.

INTERPRETATION Banks in India has an average of Debt to Equity ratio of 11.86. Banks like HDFC, ICICI and can raise more capital when required as their ratio is less than 11.89. On the other hand SBI, PNB and BOB will have problem in borrowing the money as they are highly leveraged.

All banks are not included. Dynamic market leads to inaccurate data. The project study is restricted to banking sector used in India only. The project was constrained by time limit of two months. Lack of source of information. Since annual reports give the condition of the banks on an annual basis, these may not reflect the current positions of the bank.

Good time & effort were spent in analyzing the data. The major limitation of this study shall be data availability as the data is proprietary and not readily shared for dissemination.


Indian Banking Industry has gone through various phases of development in history. The present growth in the banking sector can be attributed to the various financial reforms undertaken by the government. Banking companies are having more than sufficient capital to shield itself from risk weighted assets. The deposits of banking companies are increasing with increase in GDP at market price. Statutory requirement is being used as tool by RBI to keep inflation under check. Past five year has seen an average growth of nearly 30% in Profit after Tax of the banking companies Non Performing Assets Ratio of Indian banking companies is around 1.2%, well below the RBI set danger level of 10%. Banking companies in India differs in the shareholding pattern. Among the banks selected analysis and methodology adopted for the analysis, HDFC bank is the best bank followed by State Bank of India.
