repayable on demands or otherwise and with draw able on demand by cheques, draft

Banking scene in India
The banking sector in India is passing through a period of
structural change under the combined impact of financial sector reforms,
internal competition, changes in regulations, new technology, global competitive
pressure and fast evolving strategic objectives of banks and their existing and
potential competitors. Until the last decade, banks were regarded largely as
institutions rather akin to public utilities. The market for banking services
were oligopolies and Centralized while the market place was regulated and banks
were expected to receive assured spreads over their cost of funds. This
phenomenon, which was caricatured as 3-6-3 banking in the united states, meaning
that banks accepted deposits at 3%, lent at 6%, and went home at 3 p.m. to play
golf, was the result of the sheltered markets and administrated prices for
banking products. Existence of entry barriers for new banks meant that
competition was restricted to existing players, who often operated as a cartel,
even in areas where the freedom to price their products existed.
The market place began to change for banks in India as a
result of reforms of the financial sectors initiated in the current decade.
On account of policy measures introduce to infuse greater competitive vitality
in the system, the banking has entered in to a competitive phase. Competition
has emerged not only from within the banking system but also from non-banking
institutions. Lowering of entry barriers, deregulation of interest rates and
growing sophistication of customers have made banking far less oligopolistic
today. Introduction of capital adequacy and other prudential norms, freedom
granted to enter into new turf’s and greater overlap of functions between banks
and non-banks have forced banks to get out of their cozy little world and think
of the future of the banking.
Emerging Environment of Banking in India
Full convertibility of rupee leading to free mobility of
capital, which will mean virtual collapse of the national borders for trade and
Greater coordination between monetary, fiscal and exchanged
rate policies for achieving the goals of faster and sustainable economic growth,
macro-economic stability and export promotion.
Close integration of various financial markets such as money
market, capital market and forex market.
Removal of lowering of existing barriers of competitiveness,
which are present today in the form of quantitative instructions on certain
imports protective custom duties, reservation of certain utilities for the
Growing privatization and commercialization infrastructure
Today, Banks customers are better informed, more
sophisticated and discerning. They also have a wide choice to choose from
various banks and non-bank intermediaries. Their expectations are soaring. This
is particularly true for banks corporate clientele but also applies to customers
from personal segment.
This is changing profile of customer’s call for a shift
from product-based approach to customers-based approach. A bank aiming at
maximizing customer value must, of necessity, plan for customized products. A
combination of marketing skills and state-of-the-art technology should enable to
bank in maximizing its profits through customer satisfaction.
In the next millennium banks will have to be more and more
cautions about customer service, profitability, increased productivity, to
keep face with changing banking scenario. As banks in India prepare themselves
for the millenium these are the shifts in the paradigm they are likely to
experience. The 21st century may see the dawn of “DARWINIAN BANKING”. Only the
banks could fulfill the demands of markets and changing items would survive and

Review of Existing Literature :
It is very essential to know whether the study has already
been conducted before. If so, how and to what extent ? And because of this
scholar has to go through all the existing literature related to the study. SBI
Card, very limited studies have been conducted on the subject. Due to the time
restrictions scholar could seek advice from only the limited literature, which
is available with the bank.
As the concept is completely under the control of various
banks and RBI. So the information is directly taken from these sources.
As the concept includes two terms i.e. cash credit or working
capital loans and terms loans. Therefore both the terms are taken into
consideration in the proposed study. Due to the privatization of banking sector
many big private players entered in this sector giving a tough competition to
the existing players. So, to face this stiff competition all the public sector
banks have to review their functioning. These aspects will be given importance
in this project report.
The concept of SBI card, question crops in mind what is a
SBI card, What is its shape and size, what is its function. A SBI card is
nothing but a identity card containing card holder’s photographs with signature,
card no. Name, A/c No. limit, validity period, branch code with signature of
