INTRODUCTION:
Banking in India originated in the last decades of the 18th century. The first banks were The General Bank of India which started in 1786, and the Bank of Hindustan, both of which are now defunct. The oldest bank in existence in India is the State Bank of India, which originated in the Bank of Calcutta in June 1806, which almost immediately became the Bank of Bengal. This was one of the three presidency banks, the other two being the Bank of Bombay and the Bank of Madras, all three of which were established under charters from the British East India Company. For many years the Presidency banks acted as quasi-central banks, as did their successors. The three banks merged in 1921 to form the Imperial Bank of India, which, upon India's independence, became the State Bank of India. Indian merchants in Calcutta established the Union Bank in 1839, but it failed in 1848 as a consequence of the economic crisis of 1848-49. The Allahabad Bank, established in 1865 and still functioning today, is the oldest Joint Stock bank in India. (Joint Stock Bank. . That honor belongs to the Bank of Upper India, which was established in 1863, and which survived until 1913, when it failed, with some of its assets and liabilities b Foreign banks too started to arrive, particularly in Calcutta, in the 1860s. The Comptoire d'Escompte de Paris opened a branch in Calcutta in 1860, and another in Bombay in 1862; branches in Madras and Pondichery, then a French colony, followed. HSBC established itself in Bengal in 1869. Calcutta was the most active trading port in India, mainly due to the trade of the British Empire, and so became a banking center. Being transferred to the Alliance Bank of Simla. The Bank of Bengal, which later merged with the Bank of Bombay and the Bank of Madras to form the Imperial Bank of India in 1921.

11

The period between 1906 and 1911 a number of banks established then have survived to the present such as Bank of India, Corporation Bank, Indian Bank, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank and Central Bank of India. The partition of India in 1947 adversely impacted the economies of Punjab and West Bengal, paralyzing banking activities for months. India's independence marked the end of a regime of the Laissez-faire for the Indian banking. The Government of India initiated measures to play an active role in the economic life of the nation, and the Industrial Policy Resolution adopted by the government in 1948 envisaged a mixed economy. This resulted into greater involvement of the state in different segments of the economy including banking and finance. The major steps to regulate banking included:

In 1949, the In 1948, the Reserve Bank of India, India's central banking authority, was nationalized, and it became Banking Regulation Act was enacted which empowered the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) "to regulate, control, and inspect the banks in India."

The Banking Regulation Act also provided that no new bank or branch of an existing bank could be opened without a license from the RBI, and no two banks could have common directors. However, despite these provisions, control and regulations, banks in India except the State Bank of India, continued to be owned and operated by private persons. This changed with the nationalization of major banks in India on 19 July 1969.

NATIONALISATION : The RBI was nationalized on January 1, 1949 in terms of the Reserve Bank of India (Transfer to Public Ownership) Act, 1948 (RBI, By the 1960s the Indian banking industry had become an important tool to facilitate the development of the Indian economy. At the same time, it had emerged as a large employer, and a debate had ensued about the possibility to nationalise the banking industry. Indira Gandhi, the-then Prime Minister of India expressed the intention of the GOI in the annual

12

conference of the All India Congress Meeting in a paper entitled "Stray thoughts on Bank Nationalisation. The paper was received with positive enthusiasm. Thereafter, her move was swift and sudden, and the GOI issued an ordinance and nationalised the 14 largest commercial banks with effect from the midnight of July 19, 1969. Jayaprakash Narayan, a national leader of India, described the step as a "masterstroke of political sagacity." Within two weeks of the issue of the ordinance, the Parliament passed the Banking Companies (Acquisition and Transfer of Undertaking) Bill, and it received the presidential approval on 9 August 1969. A second dose of nationalization of 6 more commercial banks followed in 1980. The stated reason for the nationalization was to give the government more control of credit delivery. With the second dose of nationalization, the GOI controlled around 91% of the banking business of India. After this, until the 1990s, the nationalised banks grew at a pace of around 4%, closer to the average growth rate of the Indian economy. Liberalization: In the early 1990s, the then Narsimha Rao government embarked on a policy of liberalization, licensing a small number of private banks. These came to be known as New Generation techsavvy banks, and included Global Trust Bank (the first of such new generation banks to be set up), which later amalgamated with Oriental Bank of Commerce, Axis Bank(earlier as UTI Bank), ICICI Bank and HDFC Bank. This move, along with the rapid growth in the economy of India, revitalized the banking sector in India, which has seen rapid growth with strong contribution from all the three sectors of banks, namely, government banks, private banks and foreign banks. The next stage for the Indian banking has been setup with the proposed relaxation in the norms for Foreign Direct Investment, where all Foreign Investors in banks may be given voting rights which could exceed the present cap of 10%,at present it has gone up to 74% with some restrictions. The new policy shook the Banking sector in India completely. Bankers, till this time, were used to the 4-6-4 method (Borrow at 4%;Lend at 6%;Go home at 4) of functioning. The new wave ushered in a modern outlook and tech-savvy methods of working for traditional banks.All this led to the retail boom in India. People not just demanded more from their banks but also received more. Currently , banking in India is generally fairly mature in terms of supply, product range -even though reach in rural India still remains a challenge for the private sector and foreign banks. In terms of quality of assets and capital adequacy. Markets First 31st May, 2010 Headlines

BRIEF HISTORY :

Bank of Baroda is having a long, eventful and glorious history of more than 101 years. HH Sir. Maharaj Sayajirao-III founded the Bank.The Bank made a humble beginning in 1908 in a small building in Baroda. On 20th July 1908 Bank of Baroda Limited was registered under the Baroda Companies Act of 1897, with a paid up capital of Rs. 10 lacs. In the year 1935 Bank became a scheduled Bank. RBI included the Bank in the second schedule of RBI and brought under direct control of RBI. At the time of independence in 1947, Bank of Baroda was a regional bank with 48 branches. However, it found a place in Indias Fortune Five list of Banks. During 1953 - 1958 Bank opened 30 new offices and had become an all-India Bank. Bank of Baroda (BSE: 532134) (BoB) (Hindi: ) is the 3rd largest bank in India, after State Bank of India and Punjab National Bank and ahead of ICICI Bank. BoB has total assets in excess of Rs. 2.27 lakh crores, or Rs. 2,274 billion, a network of over 3000 branches and offices, and about 1100+ ATMs. It offers a wide range of banking products and financial services to corporate and retail customers through a variety of delivery channels and through its specialised subsidiaries and affiliates in the areas of investment banking, credit cards and asset management. Maharajah of Baroda Sir Sayajirao Gaekwad III founded the bank on July 20, 1908 in the princely state of Baroda, in Gujarat. The bank, along with 13 other major commercial banks of India, was nationalised on 19 July 1969, by the Government of India.

As many as nine banks have merged with Bank of Baroda during its journey so far: Hind Bank Ltd (1958) New Citizen Bank of India Ltd (1961) Surat Banking Corporation (1963)
16

Tamil Nadu Central Bank (1964) Umbergaon People Bank (1964) Traders Bank Limited (1988) Bareilly Corporation Bank Ltd (1998) Benares State Bank Ltd (2002) South Gujarat Local Area Bank Ltd (2004).

The Heritage It all started with a visionary Maharaja's uncanny foresight into the future of trade and enterprising in his country. On 20th July 1908, under the Companies Act of 1897, and with a paid up capital of Rs 10 Lacs started the legend that has now translated into a strong, trustworthy financial body, THE BANK OF BARODA It has been a wisely orchestrated growth, involving corporate wisdom, social pride and the vision of helping others grow, and growing itself in turn.

The founder, Maharaja Sayajirao Gaekwad, with his insight into the future, saw "a bank of this nature will prove a beneficial agency for lending, transmission, and deposit of money and will be a powerful factor in the development of art, industries and commerce of the State and adjoining territories." These words are etched into the mind, body and soul of what has now become a banking legend. Following the Maharaja's words, the emblem has been crafted to represent wealth, safety, industrial development and an inclination to better and promote the country's agrarian economy. This emblem shows a coin, symbolizing wealth, embossed with an upraised palm, a safety cover for the depositor's money, with a cogwheel that promotes industrial growth in tandem with the two corn ears that stand for the progress of the staple agricultural growth in the country.

The Ethics: Between 1913 and 1917, as many as 87 banks failed in India. Bank of Baroda survived the crisis, mainly due to its honest and prudent leadership. This financial integrity, business prudence, caution and an abiding care and concern for the hard earned savings of hard working people, were to become the central philosophy around which business decisions would be effected. This cardinal philosophy was over the century old existence, to become its biggest asset. It ensured that the Bank survived the Great War years. It ensured survival during the Great Depression. Even while big names were dragged into the Stock Market scam and the Capital Market scam, the Bank of Baroda continued its triumphant march along the best ethical practices Our Logo:

Our new logo is a unique representation of a universal symbol. It comprises dual B letterforms that hold the rays of the rising sun. We call this the Baroda Sun. The sun is an excellent representation of what our bank stands for. It is the single most powerful source of light and energy its far reaching rays dispel darkness to illuminate everything they touch. At Bank of Baroda, we seek to be the source that will help all our stakeholders realise their goals. To our customers, we seek to be a one-stop, reliable partner who will help them address different financial needs. To our employees, we offer rewarding careers and to our investors and business partners, maximum return on their investment. The single-colour, compelling vermillion palette has been carefully chosen, for its distinctivenes as it stands for hope and energy. The Baroda Sun is a fitting face for our brand because it is a universal symbol of dynamism and optimism it is meaningful for our many audiences and easily decoded by all. It is a signal that we recognize and are prepared for new business paradigms in a globalised world. At the same time, we will always stay in touch with our heritage and enduring relationships on which our bank is founded. By adopting a symbol as simple and powerful as the Baroda Sun, we hope to communicate both.

INITIAL EMBLEM:

The emblem show a coin, symboilizing wealth , embossed with an an unpraised palm, a safety cover for the depositors money with a cogwheel that promotes industrial growth in tandem with the two corn ears that stan for the progress of the staple
agriculture growth in the country .

Marketing Initiatives The mid-eighties marked the beginning of the shift to a buyers` market. The Bank orchestrated its business strategies around the centrality of the customer. It diversified into areas of merchant banking, housing finance, credit cards and mutual funds. A string of segment specific branches entrenched operations in the profitable markets. Overseas operations were revamped and structural changes intensified in the territories to cater to second generation NRIs. Slowly but surely, the move to become a one stop financial supermarket had been set in motion. Service delivery standards were stipulated. Technology was adopted to add punch. Employees across the board were inculcated with the marketing concept. Aggressive marketing became the new business philosophy. People Initiatives Bank of Baroda has always had an immense faith in the infinite potential of its people. This has been historically demonstrated in its recruitment practices, developmental initiatives, placement processes and promotion policies. Strategic HR interventions like, according cross border and cross cultural work exposure to its managers, hiring diverse functional specialists to support line functionaries and complementing the technical competencies of its people by imparting conceptual, managerial and leadership skills, gave the Bank competitive advantage. The elaborate man management policies also made the Bank a breeding ground for business leaders. The Bank provided around a dozen CEOs to the industry- men who went on to build other great institutions. People initiatives were blended with IR initiatives to create an effectively harmonious workplace, where everyone prospered. Financial Initiatives New norms for capital adequacy required new capital management strategies. In 1995 the Bank raised Rs 300 crores through a Bond issue. In 1996 the Bank tapped the capital market with an IPO of Rs 850 crores, Despite adverse market conditions prevailing then, the issue was over subscribed, reflecting the positive public perception of the Bank's fundamental financial strength. The Future

19

Revolutionary and discontinuous changes in the operating environment are a stark reminder that business success is 'impermanent'. The emergence of IT as a major driver for change, has accentuated the need to initiate a major transformation program. The conversion to an IT savvy, market driven bank will be a prerequisite to survival and growth. A major and strategic step in hi-tech, was the establishment of the Integrated Treasury branch, as a forerunner to full-fledged global treasury operations. Towards creating a future Bank of Baroda, the Bank has adopted a revolutionary new business strategy that will be enabled by a revolutionary new IT strategy. Actioning this strategy will position Bank of Baroda as India's uncontested premier bank. At Bank of Baroda, change is a journey. It has a beginning. There will be no end. It will be a long and difficult march. And the Bank will emerge stronger, more resilient and positioned to become India's first bank of truly global standards. The relocation to the imposing Baroda Corporate Centre, is a true reflection of the Bank's resolve to move ahead of the times. It will not be out of place now, as it stands on the threshold of a digital era, to echo the same sentiments that guided the Bank in its platinum jubilee year - 'a promising future is the sequel to a glorious past'.

MARKETING STRATEGY OF THIRD PARTY PRODUCT IN GENERAL AND NON LIFE PRODUCT : History of insurance Insurance began as a way of reducing the risk of traders, as early as 5000 BC in China and 4500 BC in Babylon. Life insurance dates only to ancient Rome; "burial clubs" covered the cost of members' funeral expenses and helped survivors monetarily. Modern life insurance started in 17th century England, originally as insurance for traders[7] : merchants, ship owners and underwriters met to discuss deals at Lloyd's Coffee House, predecessor to the famous Lloyd's of London. The first insurance company in the United States was formed in Charleston, South Carolina in 1732, but it provided only fire insurance. The sale of life insurance in the U.S. began in the late 1760s. The Presbyterian Synods in Philadelphia and New York created the Corporation for Relief of Poor and Distressed Widows and Children of Presbyterian Ministers in 1759; Episcopalian priests organized a similar fund in 1769. Between 1787 and 1837 more than two dozen life insurance companies were started, but fewer than half a dozen survived. Prior to the American Civil War, many insurance companies in the United States insured the lives of slaves for their owners. In response to bills passed in California in 2001 and in Illinois

45

in 2003, the companies have been required to search their records for such policies. New York Life for example reported that Nautilus sold 485 slaveholder life insurance policies during a two-year period in the 1840s; they added that their trustees voted to end the sale of such policies 15 years before the Emancipation Proclamation.

Insurance developed from the fourteenth century as a means of spreading huge risks attendant on early maritime enterprises; life and fire insurance developed later. The main classes of insurance are life and other personal insurance, marine insurance, accident or property insurance and liability insurance when the sum becomes payable when legal liability is incurred as for personal injuries or professional negligence to another. LIFE INSURANCE : life insurance is a contract between the insurer and the policy owner whereby a benefit is paid to the designated beneficiaries if an insured event occurs which is covered by the policy. In return, the policy owner agrees to pay a stipulated amount at regular intervals or in lump sums. There may be designs in some countries where bills and death expenses plus catering for after funeral expenses should be included in Policy Premium. In the United States, the predominant form simply specifies a lump sum to be paid on the insured's demise. Life-based contracts tend to fall into two major categories:

Protection policies - designed to provide a benefit in the event of specified event, typically a lump sum payment. A common form of this design is term insurance. Investment policies - where the main objective is to facilitate the growth of capital by regular or single premiums. Common forms (in the US anyway) are whole life, universal life and variable life policies.

Types of life insurance Life insurance may be divided into two basic classes temporary and permanent or following subclasses - term, universal, whole life and endowment life insurance. There are three key factors to be considered in term insurance:

Face amount (protection or death benefit), Premium to be paid (cost to the insured) Length of coverage (term)

Various insurance companies sell term insurance with many different combinations of these three parameters. The face amount can remain constant or decline. The term can be for one or more years. The premium can remain level or increase. Common types of term insurance
46

include Level, Annual Renewable and Mortgage insurance. Level Term policy has the premium fixed for a period of time longer than a year. These terms are commonly 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and even 35 years. Level term is often used for long term planning and asset management because premiums remain consistent year to year and can be budgeted long term. At the end of the term, some policies contain a renewal or conversion option. Guaranteed Renewal, the insurance company guarantees it will issue a policy of equal or lesser amount without regard to the insurability of the insured and with a premium set for the insured's age at that time. Some companies however do not guarantee renewal, and require proof of insurability to mitigate their risk and decline renewing higher risk clients (for instance those that may be terminal). Renewal that requires proof of insurability often includes a conversion options that allows the insured to convert the term program to a permanent one that the insurance company makes available. This can force clients into a more expensive permanent program because of anti selection if they need to continue coverage. Renewal and conversion options can be very important when selecting a program.

What is General Insurance?

Insurance other than Life Insurance falls under the category of General Insurance. General Insurance comprises of insurance of property against fire, burglary etc, personal insurance such as Accident and Health Insurance, and liability insurance which covers legal liabilities. There are also other covers such as Errors and Omissions insurance for professionals, credit insurance etc. Non-life insurance companies have products that cover property against Fire and allied perils, flood storm and inundation, earthquake and so on. There are products that cover property against burglary, theft etc. The non-life companies also offer policies covering machinery against breakdown, there are policies that cover the hull of ships and so on. In respect of insurance of property, it is important that the cover is taken for the actual value of the property to avoid being imposed a penalty should there be a claim. Where a property is undervalued for the purposes of insurance, the insured will have to bear a ratable proportion of the loss There are general insurance products that are in the nature of package policies offering a combination of the covers mentioned above. For instance, there are package policies available for householders, shop keepers and also for professionals such as doctors, chartered accountants etc. Apart from offering standard covers, insurers also offer customized or tailormade ones. Insuring anything other than human life is called general insurance. Examples are

47

insuring property like house and belongings against fire and theft or vehicles against accidental damage or theft. Injury due to accident or hospitalization for illness and surgery can also be insured. Your liabilities to others arising out of the law can also be insured and is compulsory in some cases like motor third party insurance. THIRD PARTY INSURANCE: There are two quite different kinds of insurance involved in the damages system. One is Third Party liability insurance, which is just called liability insurance by insurance companies and the other one is first party insurance. A third party insurance policy is a policy under which the insurance company agrees to indemnify the insured person, if he is sued or held legally liable for injuries or damage done to a third party. The insured is one party, the insurance company is the second party, and the person you (the insured) injure who claims damages against you is the third party. Salient Features of Third Party Insurance Third party insurance is compulsory for all motor vehicles. In G. Govindan v. New India Assurance Co. Ltd.[2],Third party risks insurance is mandatory under the statute .This provision cannot be overridden by any clause in the insurance policy. Third party insurance does not cover injuries to the insured himself but to the rest of the world who is injured by the insured. Beneficiary of third party insurance is the injured third party, the insured or the policy holder is only nominally the beneficiary of the policy. In practice the money is always paid direct by the insurance company to the third party (or his solicitor) and does not even pass through the hands of the insured person. In third party policies the premiums do not vary with the value of what is being insured because what is insured is the legal liability and it is not possible to know in advance what that liability will be. Third party insurance is almost entirely fault-based.(means you have to prove the fault of the insured first and also that injury occurred from the fault of the insured to claim damages from him) Third party insurance involves lawyers aid The third party insurance is unpopular with insurance companies as compared to first party insurance, because they never know the maximum amounts they will have to pay under third party policies.

FINDINGS: Most of the people of ALLAHABAD know about the insurance policy provide by the bank .Many people have done LIC ,Reliance,Bajaja Allianz insurance.

According to their income people have choose insurance policy . People opt for insurance due to : It make family secure Risk cover Tax benefits Finanacial support Investment

According to survey I collect 60 customer where I find that only 20% know about third party and 40% dont know about about the INDIAFIRST LIFE INSURANCE.

Maximum people have opt insurance policy over 10 years of other company.

Age of above 35 years they have opt insurance policy for their children for her future

I found that very few people have taken INDIAFIRST life insurance policy due to less marketing , less advertisement .

71

Another reason is that INDIAFIRST is very new if we compare from other insurance company like LIC ,RELIANCE.

No facility of door to door service.

Plan is good but marketing is not appropriate.No special employee is appoint who take care of INDIAFIRST OR NICL in different branches of ALLAHABAD.

One thing I would like to add that service provide by BANK OF BARODA is very good it observe by survey.

Recently BARODA NEXT is launch due to which life become easy for customer of BANK OF BARODA.

SUGGESTION:

The first and the foremost suggestion which I would like to give is that there should more awareness of insurance policy of BANK OF BARODA , proper marketing strategy should be plan.

Door to door service.

72

More advertisement by distributing pamphlets, hodings,commercial add on T.V like BARODA NEXT.

More awareness

Proper marketing should be done for insurance policy of Bank of Baroda.

First Bank of Baroda have to convince the old customer of account holder of Bank. Then you have to catch others.

They should identify the threats and challenges prevailing in the market and according to that they should form strategy to be more unique.

As we all know that BANK OF BARODA is third position among all bank ,they have more customer as compare to other bank they can easily attract more people for insurance ,by using the goodwill of bank.

Service of BANK OF BARODA is very good this feature can also use for convincing the people.

It does not take any commission to customer for policy like LIC take, this point also use for convincing the people.

INDIAFIRST insurance for different people .

Like savings plan is good for business


73

Service people go for future plan , they can also take education plan for their chidren. Such thing we can say to customer for insurance.

CONCLUSIONS: Today organization are knowledge based and their success and survival depend on creativity , innovation , discovery and inventiveness.An effective reaction to these demands lead to innovative change in the organisation in order to to ensure their existence . The rate of changes is accelerating rapidly , as a new knowledge idea generation and global diffusion are increasing . Creativity and innovation have a bigger role in this change process for survival. Today the life insurance is growing at CAGR of 35% and private player are growing at a CAGR of 125% . There are total 23 insurance players in the market selling insurance policy. In the developed countries life insurance contributes 8% to GDP , while in India it is less than 2% of GDP.As you see there is huge potential in the market to cover lives through life insurance . Indias population is more than one crore Insured population : 6.73% Average insurance life cover: less than Rs 10,000 In the era of globalisation ,INDIAFIRST life insurance need aggressive marketing strategy because there is already major player exist in market like LIC ,RELIANCE , BAJAJ ALLIANZ etc,which are very old also .INDIAFIRST is started recently in Nov 2009 joint venture of bank of baroda & legal & general & andhra bank .It need more innovative idea for marketing. By the help of survey I collected informaton that very few know about INDIAFIRST insurance policy due to lack of awareness. Those who have 20-30 years old account holder in bank of baroda they even dont know about the insurance policy .People who above 35 years age have done insurance of different company.95% know about the insurance basically people know more about LIC because it is very old and trustworthy company.As we know that insurance give Family security Systematic savings

74

Tax benefits Investment

I would like to conclude that third party product of BANK OF BARODA really needs aggressive marketing strategy , more advertisement.more awareness among people atleast those who have account in bank of baroda because already the big company is running in market like LIC .Distribute more and more pamphlets etc.INDIAFIRST have very good scheme ,it has 6 plan which really very good the term plan started in my training period .Good things about this insurance is it is associated with brand name BANK OF BARODA which is 100 years old bank people have faith on that. No need of commision as LIC agent take , no need to worry about the return of money.USP of this insurance is that it charge applicable under this policy

Year 1 2-3 4-10 11 onwards Top up

charge 20% 7% 3% 1% 2%

While other take 40%. If Bank of Baroda use good strategy for marketing of Indiafirst very soon it will capture whole market like LIC.It is started with 12000/ INDIAFIRST PLAN EDUCATION PLAN SAVINGS PLAN FUTURE PLAN TERM PLAN LIFE PLAN ANNUNITY PLAN

According to their income level and interest level people choose different plan MAIN AIM IS TO SECURE YOUR LIFE .
