Dr. Rahul Rajan
Abhilasha Srivastava
The objective of this paper is to present a method for estimating the cost efficiency of Indian banks in order to study the degree of technical and cost performance of the Indian banking sector and to analyze how the banking sector has been affected by technical efficiency and cost efficiency. Initially, the evolution in the technical front in the banks between 2005 to 2012 is measured. For this analysis purpose a sample of 101 Indian banks including 28 public ,29 private and 44 foreign banks operating in India is taken for the period 2005-2012. For analysis purpose both the parametric method of productive efficiency frontier (Stochastic Frontier Analysis ) and nonparametric method (Data Envelopment Analysis) are taken.


The financial system is the lifeline of the economy. The changes in the economy get mirrored in the performance of the financial system, more so of the banking industry. The banking system in India is significantly different from that of other Asian nations because of the country’s unique geographic, social, and economic characteristics. India has a large population and land size, a diverse culture, and extreme disparities in income, which are marked among its regions. There are high levels of illiteracy among a large percentage of its population but, at the same time, the country has a large reservoir of managerial and technologically advanced talents. Between about 30 and 35 percent of the population resides in metro and urban cities and the rest is spread in several semi-urban and rural centers. The country’s economic policy framework combines socialistic and capitalistic features with a heavy bias towards public sector investment. India has followed the path of growth-led exports rather…...

Inclusive Growth in Indian Banking Sector

...Introduction Indian banking system has emerged as a vibrant sector in the Indian economy. Strong regulatory mechanism, inherent strength in the economy, and progressive policy framework which supports, nurtures, and helps in growing the financial institutions. Indian financial services industry is dominated by the banking sector that contributes significantly to the level of economic activity. The banking structure in India is broadly classified into public sector banks, private sector banks and foreign banks. The public sector banks continue to dominate the banking industry, in terms of lending and borrowing, and it has widely spread out branches which help greatly in pooling up of resources as well as in revenue generation for credit creation. The role of banks in accelerating economic development of the country has been increasingly recognized since the nationalization This facilitated the rapid expansion of banking in terms of its geographical reach covering rural India, in turn leading to significant growth in deposits and advances. Eventually, however, the government used banking sector to finance its own deficit by frequently increasing cash reserve ratios (CRR) and statutory liquidity ratio (SLR). Deregulation of the Indian financial system in 1991 followed by various financial sector reforms during the period 1990 through 1998 led to a major restructuring of the Indian banking industry. India has entered high growth trajectory with the initiation of economic......

Mergers & Acquisitions in Banking Sector

...ABSTRACT Recent reports on banking sector often indicate that India is slowly but surely moving from a regime of `large number of small banks' to `small number of large banks'. The aim of this paper is to probe into the various motivations for mergers and acquisitions in the Indian Banking sector. Thus, literature is reviewed to look into the various motivations behind a banks’ merger/ acquisition event. The paper also takes us through the international mergers & acquisitions scenario comparing it with the Indian scene. Given the increasing role of the economic power in the turf war of nations, the paper looks at the significant role of the state and the central bank in protecting customer’s interests vis-à-vis creating players of international size. While, gazing at the mergers & acquisitions in the Indian Banking Sector both from an opportunity and as imperative perspectives, the paper also glances at the large implications for the nation. INTRODUCTION Generally speaking a bank is an institution dealing in money. The origin of the word bank is traced to the Italian ‘banca’, ‘banc’ or ‘banque’, which means a bench. It is stated that in Middle Ages the European money changers and moneylenders displayed their coins on their benches and conducted their business. Hence the term bank refers to the bench on which the business of money changing and money lending was conducted. Hence, the term banking is defined as accepting for the purpose of lending or investment,......

Customer Satisfaction in the Banking Sector

... A SURVEY OF THE FACTORS INFLUENCING CUSTOMER SATISFACTION IN ORGANIZATIONS WITHIN THE BANKING SECTOR IN KENYA ONE: INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background to the study Customer satisfaction within the banking institution is measured by many factors, which may or may not be quality related and is the key determinant as to whether a customer will be loyal to the baking service provider (Taylor and Baker, 1994). Satisfied customer will refer other to the same services by word of mouth. In the contrary, unsatisfied customers will seek better service elsewhere, give negative reference to the poor service provider, and blame their former service providers. Therefore, banks must aim at fostering long-term relations with their customers (File and Prince, 1992). Banks need to proposition their services from the operational to marketing aspects such as retail, business and corporate banking, insurance and investment. In order to satisfy each type of customer segments, the banks prefer to subdivide the tasks in different divisions. The Commercial bank of Africa and Barclays banks are examples of diversified banking institution which have been successful in satisfying customer needs even during current global market adjustments (Qin & Prybutok, 2009). In Kenya, customer satisfaction is a bank’s strategy for increasing revenues, since it signifies the retention of customers which is much economical than drawing new customers. There are varied views about what satisfies a customer,......

Indian Banking Sector Update

...2000 Banking Industry Update Dec ‘10 Taking a breather, negatives surround… Banking stocks corrected across the board on the PSU banks ‘bribery for loans’ scam, 2G and MFI loans, liquidity concerns and rising G-Sec yields. However, one has to take a call on whether the sector will keep correcting further. We believe the sector will continue to remain under pressure in the near term where stocks may not give a sharp bounce-back but shall remain around these levels until we are able to see a sharp uptick in credit and deposits growth alongside pressure on yields easing off.

Evaluating the Performance of Indian Banking Sector

...Enticed by the reform of Indian banking sector in the early 1990s and further slowdown in the economy as a result of global financial crisis in late 2000s, the current study analyzes the performance of Indian banks using data envelopment analysis. The performance is measured in terms of technical efficiency, returns-to-scale, and Malmquist productivity index for a sample of 33 banks, consisting of 19 public sector and 14 private sector banks during the period spanning 1995-96 to 2009-10. The jackknifing analysis, followed by the dummy variable regression model is used to identify the outlier and its possible impact on overall efficiency trends. Findings reveal that efficiency scores are robust in the sense that the inclusion of outlier does not affect the overall efficiency trends. The public sector bank is faintly doing better than the private sector banks in terms of (i) technical efficiency since 2003-04 and (ii) scale efficiency from 2000-01 onwards. There is growing tendency of public banks operating under increasing returns to scale, implying that substantial gains could be obtained from altering scale via either internal growth or consolidation in the sector. The difference in the Total Factor Productivity (TFP) change between these two types of banks is found to be statistically significant in favour of public sector banks. The technological change has been the dominating source of productivity growth, whereas, the contribution of pure efficiency change and scale......

Coparative Analysis of Private Sector Banks and Public Sector Banks

...BANKING 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 is 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 the keiretsu. The oldest bank still in existence is Monte dei Paschi di Siena, headquartered in Siena, Italy, which has been operating continuously since 1472.[1] Contents • 1.

Payment Banks; a Game Changer in the Indian Financial Sector and a Race with Indian Public Sector Banks

...‘PAYMENT BANKS; A GAME CHANGER IN THE INDIAN FINANCIAL SECTOR AND A RACE WITH SMALL AND MEDIUM PUBLIC SECTOR BANKS’ Authors: Ajai vishnu, Adith Venugopal, Gokul Ajayakumar Abstract This is for the first time in the history of India's banking sector that RBI is giving out differentiated licences for specific activities. It has given in-principle’ licence to 11 entities to start Payment banks business. RBI is expected to come out with a second set of such licences — for small finance banks — and 10 micro lenders were given in-principle approval to set up small banks to advance loans primarily to the unbanked, small businesses and farmers, micro and small industries and unorganized sector entities which do not have access to finance from the larger banks. The idea behind the payment bank is further financial inclusion by providing small savings accounts used by payments and remittance to migrant workforce, low income households, small businesses, at lowest costs. The payment banks, as the concept is more advanced and visionary, moreover having less risks in activities, will lead to rising competitive intensity (higher savings interest rates and service standards) in the banking system, particularly for PSU banks in non-urban centres. It could be uneconomical for traditional banks to open branches in every village but the mobile phones coverage is a promising low-cost platform for quickly taking basic banking services to every rural citizen. The impact on private sector banks......

Banking Sector

...BANKING CHALLENGES IN THE 21ST CENTURY Dr. Muhammad Anwar Hassan, Vice Chancellor, Preston University, Mr. Muhammad Humayun Khan, Chief Manager, State Bank of Pakistan, SBP BSC (Bank) Peshawar, Mr. Rashid Qazi, Vice President, PICIC Commercial Bank Ltd. Peshawar, Mr. Badar Hussain, Area Head North, MCB Peshawar, Mr. Tabraiz Hassan Butt, Regional Business/Operational Chief Peshawar, Fellow Bankers, Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen! First of all I would like to congratulate the administration of Preston University Peshawar for organizing this Seminar. It was the earlier part of the 1990s when the inherent weaknesses of the banking structure were recognized and a comprehensive reform process in the banking industry was initiated. The underlying objectives of the initiatives were to ensure and create a level-playing-field environment of competition in the market and to strengthen the governance and supervision of the financial institutions. In fact, the reforms were targeted to adopt a market-based indirect system of monetary, exchange and credit management to ensure the efficient allocation of financial resources. Today, 15 years later, it would no longer be an exaggeration but a fair statement that the landscape of the banking system in Pakistan has changed. The country has made a significant progress in implementing financial sector reforms and has achieved a more competitive market structure with expanding market share of private sector banks. Moreover, significant gains......

Banking Sector

...Pakistan’s Banking Sector Current Situation and Critical Issues ISHRAT HUSAIN Pakistan’s banking sector reforms which were initiated in the early 1990s have transformed the sector into an efficient, sound and strong banking system. The most recent comprehensive assessment carried out jointly by the World Bank and the IMF in 2004 came to the following conclusion: “ for reaching reforms have resulted in a more efficient and competitive financial system In particular, the predominantly state-owned banking system has been transformed into one that is predominantly under the control of the private sector. The legislative framework and the State Bank of Pakistan’s supervisory capacity have been improved substantially. As a result, the financial sector is sounder and exhibits an increased resilience to shocks.” The major changes that have occurred in the banking sector during the last decade or so can be summarized as follows: a) 80 percent of the banking assets are held by the private sector banks and the privatization of nationalized commercial banks has brought about a culture of professionalism and service orientation in place of bureaucracy and apathy. b) The banks that were losing money due to inefficiencies, waste and limited product range have become highly profitable business. These profits are, however, being used to strengthen the capital base of the banks rather than paying out to the shareholders. The minimum capital......
