INTRODUCTION
Banks play an important role in the economic development of the
country. It is often said that banker is one who deals with other
people’s money. The term banking has been uinderstood differently by
different people at different times.

The main function of banks is to accept deposits from the public and
lend money to the public. The bank receives deposits from the public
and lend money to the public.

The bank receives deposits from the public by way of time deposits
and demand deposits. When deposits are received, the bank should
pay interest at the rate prescribed by the RBI. Similarly the bank lends
money to the public as loans. When money is lended, the bank would
receive interest at the rate prescribed by the RBI.

Since the past couple of decades, banking sector has evovled in


such a way that it has surpassed its basic nature and is almost a vital
centre for all financial affairs that takes place in an economy.

In the current scenario it is impossible to find a person without


being a bank customer. And banks have become a vital centre for
almost any financial affair that takes place in an economy. This has
created an overloaded work for the banks and the time incurred by the
customers for availing banking facilities has become vast. To avoid
these time wastages and for the ease of the customers, banks have
implemented many advancements. These advancement in facilities
has reduced the time incurred by customers for availing the features
of banks. One of such advancements is the introduction of debit cards
which is easy to avail and access and is being utilised by almost 90%
of the customers.

And this study deals with to what extent the customers are aware of
the facilities implemented by banks i.e. debit cards in specific

CUSTOMR AWARENESS:

Customers are informed and remaindered about the


products and are requested and persuaded to purchase their
products. Such communication may be made their along the
product or well in advance of the introduction of product into the
market. Such communication becomes necessary when a new
product or service is introduced in the market or an old product is
improved or it is simply to increase the sales of the products.
“Awareness compasses all the tools in the marketing
mix whose major role is persuasive communications.”
PHILLIP KOTLER
The main features of awareness are:
1. Customers are informed about the product or services of
the company. Either at the time of introduction of a new
product into the market or when any change is made in the
existing product.

2. Customers are reminded of the products and services of the


company.

3. Customers are requested or persuaded to purchase the


product and services of the company.

4. Awareness includes, advertising, personal selling and other


sale promotion techniques.
Consumers must have awareness about the new products
and their usage. Such activities are performed by the
manufacturer. It is the responsibility of the producer to get
information about the consumers and prospective consumers so
that the necessary product may be served to meet their
demands.
Subject matter companies must do more than make good
products they must inform consumers about the product benefits
and carefully position products in customers mind. To do this
must skillfully use the mass promotion tools like advertising,
sales promotion and public relations, personal selling, publicity.

INDUSTRIAL PROFILE:

A bank is a financial intermediary that accepts deposits and


channels those deposits into lending activities, either
directly or through capital markets. A bank connects
customers with capital deficits to customers with capital
surpluses.

Banking is generally a highly regulated industry, and


government restrictions on financial activities by banks have
varied over time and location. The current set of global bank
capital standards are called Basel II. In some countries such
as Germany, banks have historically owned major stakes in
industrial corporations while in other countries such as
the United States banks are prohibited from owning non-
financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of
a cross-share holding entity known as thekeiretsu.

The oldest bank still in existence is Monte dei Paschi di


Siena, headquartered in Siena, Italy, which has been
operating continuously since 1472.

DEFINITION:

The definition of a bank varies from country to country. See


the relevant country page (below) for more information.

Under English common law, a banker is defined as a person


who carries on the business of banking, which is specified
as, conducting current accounts for his customers paying
cheques drawn on him, and collecting cheques for his
customers.

In most English common law jurisdictions there is a Bills of


Exchange Act that codifies the law in relation to negotiable
instruments, including cheques, and this Act contains a
statutory definition of the term banker : banker includes a
body of persons, whether incorporated or not, who carry on
the business of banking' (Section 2, Interpretation). Although
this definition seems circular, it is actually functional,
because it ensures that the legal basis for bank transactions
such as cheques does not depend on how the bank is
organized or regulated.

The business of banking is in many English common


law countries not defined by statute but by common law, the
definition above. In other English common law jurisdictions
there are statutory definitions of the business of banking or
banking business . When looking at these definitions it is
important to keep in mind that they are defining the business
of banking for the purposes of the legislation, and not
necessarily in general. In particular, most of the definitions
are from legislation that has the purposes of entry regulating
and supervising banks rather than regulating the actual
business of banking. However, in many cases the statutory
definition closely mirrors the common law one. Examples of
statutory definitions:

"banking business" means the business of receiving money


on current or deposit account, paying and collecting cheques
drawn by or paid in by customers, the making of advances to
customers, and includes such other business as the Authority
may prescribe for the purposes of this Act; (Banking Act
(Singapore), Section 2, Interpretation).

"banking business" means the business of either or both of


the following:

receiving from the general public money on current, deposit,


savings or other similar account repayable on demand or
within less than [3 months] ... or with a period of call or
notice of less than that period; paying or collecting cheques
drawn by or paid in by customers

Since the advent of EFTPOS (Electronic Funds Transfer at


Point Of Sale), direct credit, direct debit and internet
banking, the cheque has lost its primacy in most banking
systems as a payment instrument. This has led legal
theorists to suggest that the cheque based definition should
be broadened to include financial institutions that conduct
current accounts for customers and enable customers to pay
and be paid by third parties, even if they do not pay and
collect cheques.

STRANDARD ACTIVITIES:

Banks act as payment agents by conducting checking or


current accounts for customers, paying cheques drawn by
customers on the bank, and collecting cheques deposited to
customers' current accounts. Banks also enable customer
payments via other payment methods such as telegraphic
transfer, EFTPOS, and ATM.

Banks borrow money by accepting funds deposited on current


accounts, by accepting term deposits, and by issuing debt
securities such as banknotes and bonds. Banks lend money
by making advances to customers on current accounts, by
making installment loans, and by investing in marketable
debt securities and other forms of money lending.

Banks provide almost all payment services, and a bank


account is considered indispensable by most businesses,
individuals and governments. Non-banks that provide
payment services such as remittance companies are not
normally considered an adequate substitute for having a bank
account.

Banks borrow most funds from households and non-financial


businesses, and lend most funds to households and non-
financial businesses, but non-bank lenders provide a
significant and in many cases adequate substitute for bank
loans, and money market funds, cash management trusts and
other non-bank financial institutions in many cases provide
an adequate substitute to banks for lending savings to.

PRODUCT PROFILE:
A debit card (also known as a bank card or check card) is a
plastic card that provides an alternative payment method
to cash when making purchases. Functionally, it can be
called an electronic cheque, as the funds are withdrawn
directly from either the bank account, or from the remaining
balance on the card. In some cases, the cards are designed
exclusively for use on the Internet, and so there is no
physical card.

In many countries the use of debit cards has become so


widespread that their volume of use has overtaken the
cheque and, in some instances, cash transactions.
Like credit cards, debit cards are used widely for telephone
and Internet purchases and, unlike credit cards, the funds
