Private banking is a concept which is new and fast emerging in the world of banking where changes have become a necessity in order for banks to survive in this competitive environment vis-à-vis not only from the public and private sector banks but also from the foreign banks. The objective of the research is to explore the various products, which a private banker deals into and the systematic process involved to match client requirements with the right kind of product. Through this research one of the main objectives is to explore the reason why most of the banks are injecting private banking as business profile to their set of service offerings.
Though private banking evolved in late 80’s in Asia, in India its not more than 5 years old. ICICI started it in Aug 2002 and since then it has been a remarkable success. Today there are enormous solutions to cater client needs but what suits best to a client is where private banking fits in. Every client will have different needs, liking and preferences. So a customized portfolio for every client is the need of the day. This research will highlight more on the product portfolio of ICICI Private Banking, how they have changed or innovatively structured to be attractive and competitive.

ICICI BANK HISTORY
ICICI Bank was originally promoted in 1994 by ICICI Limited, an Indian financial institution, and was its wholly-owned subsidiary. ICICI’s shareholding in ICICI Bank was reduced to 46% through a public offering of shares in India in fiscal 1998, an equity offering in the form of ADRs listed on the NYSE in fiscal 2000, ICICI Bank’s acquisition of Bank of Madura Limited in an all-stock amalgamation in fiscal 2001, and secondary market sales by ICICI to institutional investors in fiscal 2001 and fiscal 2002. ICICI was formed in 1955 at the initiative of the World Bank, the Government of India and representatives of Indian industry. The principal objective was to create a development financial institution for providing medium-term and long-term project financing to Indian businesses. In the 1990s, ICICI transformed its business from a development financial institution offering only project finance to a diversified financial services group offering a wide variety of products and services, both directly and through a number of subsidiaries and affiliates like ICICI Bank. In 1999, ICICI become the first Indian company and the first bank or financial institution from non-Japan Asia to be listed on the NYSE.
After consideration of various corporate structuring alternatives in the context of the emerging competitive scenario in the Indian banking industry, and the move towards universal banking, the managements of ICICI and ICICI Bank formed the view that the merger of ICICI with ICICI Bank would be the optimal strategic alternative for both entities, and would create the optimal legal structure for the ICICI group’s universal banking strategy. The merger would enhance value for ICICI shareholders through the merged entity’s access to low-cost deposits, greater opportunities for earning fee-based income and the ability to participate in the payments system and provide transaction-banking services. The merger would enhance value for ICICI Bank shareholders through a large capital base and scale of operations, seamless access to ICICI’s strong corporate relationships built up over five decades, entry into new business segments, higher market share in various business segments, particularly fee-based services, and access to the vast talent pool of ICICI and its subsidiaries.

ENVIRONMENT
An employer the bank extends a lot of authority along with justified accountability to you. The working culture is very collaborative in nature. It can be owed to the fact that the bank is highly segmented with a lot of overlapping and mostly distinct roles and responsibility.ICICI Bank has established itself as a one stop solution (Universal Bank) for all financial need of individuals and institutions alike. The credit for the same can be attributed to its vast network, probably the largest among private sector banks.This makes the life of an employee a lot easier, especially for those who face the external customers. You do not have to justify your organization, it is only the product that has to be pitched.
As far as employee benefits are concerned, ICICI Bank offers a lot of financial benefits ranging from your family health insurance to your kids school donations.

It might not be the best paymaster but it definitely will impress you with its capability as the head master (Principal) of banking industry.there are huge competition between the eployee to achieve theo goal.
ICICI use many type of advance technological software like Pinnacle 7.0 and Pinnacle7.016.Among from this software ICICI bank uses the e-banking, core banking, mobile banking electronic display sy ICICI Bank was using Teradata for its data warehouse. However, due to its proprietary hardware, the cost of procurement, upgrades and administration was soaring. The closed box architecture of Teradata imposed restrictions on scalability. Secondly, querying and loading could not happen simultaneously. Queries could only be run during business hours because the loading of data had to take place during off-business hours. This meant that the refresh rate of EDW was delayed, so queries may not reflect the most current data. ICICI Bank was also dependent on Teradata for support and other activities: The bank was completely tied down to that solution. These issues compelled ICICI Bank to look for more efficient and flexible solutions.
The solution would have to address not only current issues, but accommodate future growth expectations and business requirements. ICICI Bank evaluated numerous data warehousing solutions in the pursuit of solving its issues, and developed a shortlist of alternatives for its migration proof-of-concept: Sybase, SAS and Netezza. The primary criteria for evaluation was the price-to-performance ratio where Sybase IQ emerged the clear winner. During this rigorous testing, Sybase IQ delivered faster results on independent hardware and operating systems with minimum infrastructure. Commending the improvements achieved, Amit Sethi, Joint General Manager, ICICI bank says, “What impressed us wasthat even with overall lower costs, we could achieve significantly better query performanceafter implementing the Sybase enterprise warehouse solution.” ICICI Infotech today launched an enterprise resource planning (ERP) solution for the small and medium enterprises. The ERP package – Orion Advantage – comes bundled with an HP dual processor Xeon server, Oracle 9i database, Windows 2003 server and costs about Rs 9.90 lakh and has a 15-user license.
An ERP package helps a manufacturer or any other business implementing it to manage all the important parts in the company such as product planning, parts purchasing, maintaining inventory and interacting with suppliers and customers. ICICI Infotech officials told a press conference here today that Orion Advantage offered a set of business practice solutions for industry segments such as engineering, auto ancillary, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and IT distribution. Besides the cost advantage, the ERP package also came pre-configured. ICICI Infotech had mapped the processes specific to each industry segment into the package. Mr. Manoj Kunkalienkar, Executive Director and President, ICICI Infotech, said that small and medium enterprises (SMEs) offered a good market and ICICI Infotech hoped to become a leading solution provider to this segment. Mr. R.K. Kanthi, Deputy General Manager, ICICI Infotech, said there was no ERP package for the SMEs that bundled the server, database and operating system right now. That was the advantage ICICI Infotech offered to SMEs as Orion Advantage came bundled and pre-configured. Besides the high cost of generic ERP packages, their implementation time as far as SMEs were concerned was also long.
Orion Advantage could be installed in 45 days. ICICI Infotech had signed up six customers so far for the package and hoped to garner a 15 per cent market share of the SME segment, whose number in the country was estimated at 2.30 lakh. Mr. K.S. Natarajan, Managing Director, Trident Pneumatics Pvt Ltd of Coimbatore, one of the companies that had installed Orion Advantage, said that the company had tried three other ERP packages, all of which had failed, before settling on Orion Advantage. Mr Kunkalienkar said that ICICI Infotech planned to move the two development centers in Chennai into a single location and double the staff strength from 300 now in the next two years. The Chennai centers were involved in research and development of Orion ERP solutions and Premia, an insurance package. SWOT ANALYSIS

Porter (1980) said that a company can adopt two market strategies (1) cost leadership and, (2) product differentiation. But Day (1990) argued that both the strategies have same objective to create superior customer value. Without the superior customer value the achieving of market leadership is in vain. Again Khalifa (2004) said that the concept of customer value is used not only in different fields such as finance, economics, management, information system, justice, ethics, etc., but including relationship marketing, customer behavior, pricing and strategy.
The consumer value signifies how the customers recognize product or services, not what the firm wants to deliver to its customers. Customer value is linked to use of a product or services. Customer value is related to the trade off between what the customer pays in exchange for acquiring and using a product or services from seller and what the customer viewed what he/she received. * Customer Loyalty:
Dawes and Swailes (1999) said that the high customer loyalty is a central to the successful customer retention, and companies on the basis of loyalty will win over competition. It reflects the behavioral intention related to the product or services. Tucker (1964) says that no consideration should be given to what the subject thinks or what goes on in his central nerves system, his behavior represents the full statement of what brand loyalty is. The personality is the indication of the branding attachment. Keller, (1993) suggested that loyalty is present when favorable attitudes for the brand are manifested in repeat buying behavior. Jacoby and Chesnut, (1978) said that the brand loyalty was simply measured in terms of the outcome variables.
“Customer loyalty has focused on primarily on the product-related or brand loyalty, whereas researchers on the customer loyalty to the service organisation has remained limited”, (Gremler and Brown, 1996).
He added that the concept of loyalty to the intangible products, and their definition of service loyalty include three specific components that are, (1) Purchase, (2) attitude and, (3) cognition. The service loyalty is the level at which customer shows repeat purchasing behavior from service provider. * Service Quality:
The service quality and the customer service are interred related. According to Parasuraman et al. (1988), the desired service quality is a global judgment, or attitude, relating to the superiority of the service, whereas satisfaction is related to specific transaction. That means that the service quality is mean for long-run evaluation about service, where as satisfaction is a transaction-specific evaluation. Cronin and Taylor (1992) used the structural analysis to analyse the relationship between the customer satisfaction and service quality. He found that the coefficient of the service quality is related to the satisfaction.
The satisfaction is having the relation with the purchase intention path where all appeared not to be important. And the service quality is having the relation with the purchase intension which appeared to be unimportant. Based on this analysis he they concluded that service quality is an antecedent of the customer satisfaction. Cronin and Taylor (1992) examined the relation between service quality and consumer satisfaction and the impact of service quality and customer satisfaction on purchase intensions. He concluded his research as a. Service quality is an antecedent of customer satisfaction.
b. Customer satisfaction has a major effect on the purchase intension.
c. Service quality has less effect on the purchase intension then the customer satisfaction. Hartline and Jones (1996) examined the process of delivery of service quality and value, and their effect on the customer behavioral intension. The finding of this research is that, 1. The performance of the front desk employees has the largest total effect on the word-of-mouth intensions. 2. All effects are indirect and mediated by overall quality and value. 2.2 ABOUT THE TOPIC
The Greek philosopher, Epictetus says that “What concerns me is not the way things are, but rather the way people think things are ”.The concept of the consumer satisfaction were depend on the thinking of the consumer. Oliver (1997) gave a static definition of the consumer satisfaction by analyzing the total consumption process and experience of the customer. “Satisfaction is defined as a pleasurable fulfillment. That is the consumer senses that consumption fulfils some needs, desire, goals, or so forward and that this fulfillment is pleasurable. Thus satisfaction is the consumer’s sense that consumption provides outcomes against the standard of pleasure versus displeasure. For satisfaction to affect loyalty frequent or cumulative satisfaction is required so that individual satisfaction episodes become aggregated or blended”.
Customer satisfaction is equivalent to making sure that product and service performance meets customer expectations. It is the perception of the customer that the outcome of a business transaction is equal to or greater than his/her expectation. Customer satisfaction occurs when the acquisition of products and /or services provides a minimum negative departure from expectations when compared with other acquisitions and when the marginal utility of a transaction is equal to or greater than preceding acquisitions. Customer satisfaction occurs when the perception of the reward from the purchase of goods or services by the customer meets or exceeds his/her perceived sacrifice. The perception is a consequence of matching past purchase and consumption experience with the current purchase.
3.1 PURPOSE OF THE STUDY

3.3 RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
The study will be conducted to achieve the aforesaid objectives including both exploratory and descriptive in nature and involve personal interviews which will be based on the questionnaire format. A Research Methodology defines the purpose of the research, how it proceeds, how to measure progress and what constitute success with respect to the objectives determined for carrying out the research study.The appropriate research design formulated is detailed below.
Exploratory research: this kind of research has the primary objective of development of insights into the problem. It studies the main area where the problem lies and also tries to evaluate some appropriate courses of action. * The research methodology for the present study has been adopted to reflect these realties and help reach the logical conclusion in an objective and scientific manner. * The present study contemplated an exploratory research. 3.3.1 RESEARCH DESIGN
* Type of Research: – Descriptive research
Descriptive research includes Surveys and fact-finding enquiries of different kinds. The main characteristic of this method is that the researcher has no control over the variables; he can only report what has happened or what is happening.
3.3.2 DATA SOURCES
There are two types of data.
1. Primary data: The data that is collected first hand by someone specifically for the purpose of facilitating the study is known as primary data. So in this research the data is collected from respondents through questionnaire.
The data required for the study has been collected from-
a. Observation Method:-
To observe means seeing and listening people in a particular environment. Since the main Objective of report is to assess the entire fund process, thus fresh and potential data was required to fulfill the purpose so primary data is used. b. Interview Method:-
Interview means meeting for discussion between researcher and guider. In this method, the interviewers ask specific questions pertaining to research objectives and the responded to answer for specific questions by guider. c. Questionnaire Method:-
I have taken Primary data through questionnaire method. It consist of set of questions Which are administrated to responder to collect data on specific topic, it is popular research instrument. Questionnaire is prepared in two methods:-
(i) Open ended = Subjective
(ii) Close ended = Objective
2.Secondary Data:The collection of secondary data, defined as “the data that already exists”. The types of secondary data used of this research are: Desktop research
* By collecting all secondary information through reports, articles, case studies, projects that have been carried out in the past, and having relevance to the study brief. * The proposal will also be supported by academic work from journals and books. The library catalog and online databases like ABI Inform which will be accessed off campus with Athens password. * Journals have also provided vital assistance in the literature review. Survey based secondary data
Survey based secondary data is defined as, the “data collected by questionnaires which have been already analyzed for their original purpose”. * Questionnaire: This method would be very logical way of collecting information from customers that have been using the services of ICICI, INDIA. The aim of the questionnaire was to gain an understanding of the customer’s level of satisfaction for the service of ICICI, INDIA.
The questions talked about levels of satisfaction of the organization involved, how adaptable ICICI is to meet requirement of the customers as well as their employees. The collection of primary data, defined as “the data collected at source”. The type of primary data was obtained for this research is interviews. Personal Interviews: This method include face to face interview. By taking open-ended interview of few representatives from ICICI Bank. Focus group interview: This method includes interviewing the Customers who have been using the service of the bank SECONDARY SOURCES:-
The secondary data has been collected from
1. Private Documents (Life history, Diaries, Letters, etc.) 2. Reports published by various Research Organizations Year Books, Multi State publishers etc. 3. Books, Magazines, journals, Newspapers, Booklets, Prospectus, Annual Reports etc.
* Use of percentage and bar graph for analysis.
* Sizable sample of customers.
3.3.3 SAMPLE DESIGN
This research proposes to use a combination of qualitative and quantitative data analysis approach. The analysis will be done in informal way and will base on the data obtained from secondary data and primary data. In addition to this the researchers will analyze data collected from the companies, including personal contacts in ICICI, INDIA, to understand the current situation of ICICI in INDIA market. The data collection method aims to support the development of ICICI Bank’s customer service in UK, thorough considering the review of research papers. 22.214.171.124 SAMPLE SIZE
The data will use in this research from authentic secondary sources. Primary data will extract from interview with customers of this bank and relevant persons within the bank. I have restricted the sample size to 50 respondents. This was done keeping in mind the time constraints and the fact that I felt that this number would be enough to serve the information needs required to show the trends. And the conclusion will base on a recommendation for the bank for their future customer service. No particular ethical issues regarding the research can be foreseen at the moment. EXTENT:-
1. where the survey should be carried out?
I have covered entire residential area of Delhi city for the survey. 2. Who is to be surveyed? The marketing researcher must define the target population that will be sampled. The sample Unit taken by me,General public of different age group,different gender and different proffesion
when the survey should be conducted?
I conducted my survey for 8weeks from 10th may to 10th july.
126.96.36.199 SAMPLING METHOD: –
How should the respondent be chosen?
In the Project sampling is done on basis of Probability sampling . Among the probability sampling design the sampling design chosen is stratified random sampling. Because in this survey I had stratified the sample in different age group, different gender and different proffesion. 3.3.4 METHOD OF DATA COLLECTION
1) Surveys are standardized written instruments that can be administered by mail, email, or in person. The primary advantage of surveys is their cost in relation to the amount of data you can collect. Surveying generally is considered efficient because you can include large numbers of people at a relatively low cost. There are two key disadvantages: First, if the survey is conducted by mail, response rates can be very low, jeopardizing the validity of the data collected. There are mechanisms to increase response rates, but they will add to the cost of the survey. We will discuss tips for boosting response rates later in this lesson. Written surveys also don’t allow respondents to clarify a confusing question. Thorough survey pre-testing can reduce the likelihood that problems will arise. 2) Interviews are more in-depth, but can be cost-prohibitive.
Interviews use standardized instruments but are conducted either in person or over the telephone. In fact, an interview may use the same instrument created for a written survey, although interviewing generally offers the chance to explore questions more deeply. You can ask more complex questions in an interview since you have the opportunity to clarify any confusion. You also can ask the respondents to elaborate on their answers, eliciting more in-depth information than a survey provides. The primary disadvantage of interviews is their cost. It takes considerably more time (and therefore costs more money) to conduct telephone and in-person interviews. Often, this means you collect information from fewer people. Interview reliability also can be problematic if interviewers are not well-trained. They may ask questions in different ways or otherwise bias the responses 3) Focus groups are small-group discussions based on a defined area of interest.
While interviews with individuals are meant to solicit data without any influence or bias from the interviewer or other individuals, focus groups are designed to allow participants to discuss the questions and share their opinions. This means people can influence one another in the process, stimulating memory or debate on an issue. The advantage of focus groups lies in the richness of the information generated.
The disadvantage is that you can rarely generalize or apply the findings to your entire population of participants or clients. Focus groups often are used prior to creating a survey to test concepts and wording of questions. Following a written survey, they are used to explore specific questions or issues more thoroughly 4) Record or document review involves systematic data collection from existing records. Internal records available to a capacity builder might include financial documents, monthly reports, activity logs, purchase orders, etc. The advantage of using records from your organization is the ease of data collection. The data already exists and no additional effort needs to be made to collect it (assuming the specific data you need is actually available and up-to-date).
188.8.131.52 INSTRUMENT FOR DATA COLLECTION
* Surveys are among the most common customer satisfaction tools. The reason behind this popularity is the lower costs sometimes associated with surveys, the ease of gathering information and the ability to reach a large group of consumers at a single time. Traditional surveys were paper forms sent through the mail. Technology allows companies to send surveys via email or to direct consumers to a website. Computerized surveys are highly customizable and allow companies to change or alter the surveys for specific consumer groups. * Field reports generally are customer satisfaction tools that require companies to have a physical presence in a specific location. For example, a company might send mystery shoppers into its retail locations. These shoppers fill out forms and describe their experience while in the store and when making a purchase. Field reports are often quite expensive and in some ways less informative than surveys.
The reports are less informative because they involve a smaller number of people from whom the company collects information. * Data mining often requires the use of technology to gather consumer information. Customer satisfaction tools that use data mining often gather information at the point of purchase in retail stores. The collected data goes to a database located within the company’s physical location. Workers then take the data and create reports on customer satisfaction using the information. Data mining might need additional customer satisfaction tools to complement the gathered data. * Companies often need to take a hard look at their operations and consumer types when making a selection from among the different customer satisfaction tools. In some cases, a tool that worked previously might no longer work under current business conditions. A company’s management team must be aware of the various conditions that can alter gathered consumer data. Adjusting data collection methods or survey questions will typically overcome the shortfalls of previous collection methods. Different methods might also be necessary for the various regions or locations in which a company operates.
184.108.40.206 QUESTIONARE TECHNIQUE
Types of questions:
The customer satisfaction surveys should include four types of questions: * Overall satisfaction Overall satisfaction measures are derived from questions that ask the customer to rate the service as a whole, such as, “Overall, how satisfied are you with the service provided by this department?” This kind of question is intended to capture all aspects of the customer experience, from the time the customer begins his or her quest to find the product or service, through receipt of the product or service, and into the use of the product or service. The customer experience can include customers’ interactions with service staff throughout the course of this process. * Drivers of customer satisfaction
If possible, the drivers of customer satisfaction will be identified prior to developing a customer satisfaction survey. Once the key drivers of satisfaction have been identified, effective survey questions can be developed around these drivers. See Appendix B for a menu of drivers of customer satisfaction compiled by King County because they are likely to apply to county customer satisfaction measurement. For example, staff courtesy may be a key driver of customer satisfaction. In that case, the customer satisfaction survey might include questions about elements of courtesy important to the customers, such as respectfulness, empathy, or a sense that staff go the extra mile.
As another example, a key driver may be access to online services, and this could lead to questions about web navigability, downtime, or hours of availability. If key drivers cannot be determined prior to a survey, the survey can include questions asking customers to rate both satisfaction with and the importance of a set of possible drivers. For example, a survey can ask how satisfied a customer is with the cleanliness of the facility and then ask how important cleanliness is to the customer. These “importance” results can then be used as the basis for key driver analysis and help guide future surveys. * Customer characteristics
Departments should gather information that is important to better understand service delivery, customer segments, and overall customer demographics. Examples of service delivery-related information are as follows:
■How services are accessed (online, in person, over the phone) ■Day or time services are accessed
In order to understand and analyze your customer’s characteristics, it is recommended you gather basic demographic data (at the end of your survey) on the following background characteristics:
Your program may have mandated reporting requirements for demographic information and if so then those categories (for example, age ranges) should be used. If not, then the County’s suggested default categories are presented in Appendix C. The county’s Equity and Social Justice Ordinance focuses on race, income, class, gender, and neighborhood. Many of these items would be directly addressed by including questions about the characteristics recommended above. Appendix C presents suggested wording for these and additional demographic characteristics that may be useful to your program for reviewing results with an equity/social justice lens. Suggested wording for questions on employment status, primary language, and education level also is included. * Open-ended questions
Recommended questions up to this point have been structured, fixed-alternative, Likert-type questions (e.g., multiple choice).
In order to gather true qualitative impressions from customers and allow them to express themselves in their own words, it is recommended that each survey include at least one open-ended question. Examples of possible open-ended questions are as follows:
■Is there anything else you would like to tell us?
■What is the most important thing can we do to improve our service? ■Suggestions/comments?
3.3.5 LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY
(i) The project was conducted in a short span of 2 months which itself acts as constraint. Moreover it also puts pressure for data collection and analysis of the data. (ii) It is based on the study of only one Co-Operatives bank. (iii) The study reveals the reasons only from the point of view of the bank and not the view of the customers. (iv) As per the bank’s policy there are restrictions on disclosing some information data. (v) The MIS system is very confidential and hence all the bank records were not fully accessible. (vi) Approximate values are used for the analyzing. Hence the results also reveal the approximate values.

A. Best play in a buoyant environment Favorable macro, buoyant Market related revenues and a benign environment for asset quality. 1· ICICI as a player focused on maintaining and /or improving Market share in key business segments, particularly retail lending- Will, in our view, benefit immensely form a positive operating Environment. 2. ICICI is viewed as it is benefited from the procyclicality effect of The economic cycle as its borrowers in the legacy project financing Activity witnessed their debt servicing ability increasing considerably. It is believed that the profitability of this segment has improved as a Result of lower loan loss provisions and lower taxable rates of Income from this source. Expectations is on the procyclical benefit ,To continue and hence profitability of legacy lending to be sustained At levels seen earlier.
3. Market related revenues is believed to contribute 14% – 15% to ICICIB’s operating revenues and have boosted its preprovision RoAA. Buoyant environment to sustain the contribution from market -related revenues is expected and hence the operating profitability.
4. Pricing power in consumer financing segment profitability Against potential shocks.
5. ICICIB enjoys a dominant market position across customer Categories in retail lending.
The strong market position and robust Demand for consumer financing vests significant pricing power With ICICIB is believed either by allowing a hike in lending rats, Negotiating higher subvention form manufacturers of cutting Distribution costs.
6. Strong pricing power and a balance sheet that is significantly Biased towards retail lending buffers ICICB’s profitability from Potential shocks in the bank’s funding cost.
7. ICICB has an adverse mismatch profile between assets and Liabilities. High volatility in interest rates could adversely effect Profitability in the short term; however, as the back book gets Reprised at new lending rates upon maturity, the bank’s NIM will Likely show improvement. This phenomenon to play out through FY1002E and FY2009E is expected.
8. In line with consensus, but we recommend buy ICICIB for growth Reasons and not for the relative valuation appeal. It is not so much about ICICIB versus HSFC or HDFCB, but about Their respective operating metrics and growth conditions. Market Has rewarded both strategies: ICICIB’s broad-based strategy allows capturing value across the Value chain in a customer segment; and ICICIB, like other large players in the private sector, enjoys Favorable conditions arising from a restrictive regulatory/policy Environment towards new entrants and foreign banks and slow Pace of reforms for state-owned banks is believed.
B. Increasing contribution from strategic investments Yet another driver 1. The value accruing from subsidiaries to be 17% of ICICIB’s Current marke capitization. This to rise to 20% of ICICIB’s target Price over the next 12 months is expected with banking and life Insurance being the key drivers.
2. The life insurance business of ICICIB has been incurring losses On an accounting basis due to continued investment in expznding The scale and scope of the business. The life insurance business is Believed in creating wealth for its shareholders through market Share gains, increasing penetration of life insurance and improving operating efficiency. 3.S The asset management and venture capital fund of ICICB makes A negligible contribution currently; however, these businesses is Believed to hold significant upside potential as they achieve scale Economies.
Thus, ICICI has been able to use technology to provide value-added service to its customers during the last few years. For ICICI, technology is an integral part of their business. However, their overall progress could have been smoother but for certain internal and extraneous factors and also a pressure on spreads due to a competitive market (Annual report, 2000 –01).
E-banking has become a necessary survival weapon and is fundamentally changing the banking industry worldwide. To day, the click of the mouse offers customers banking services at a much lower cost and also empowers them with unprecedented freedom in choosing vendors for their financial service needs. No country today has a choice- whether to implement E-banking or not given the global and competitive nature of the economy. ICICI have toupgrade and constantly think of new innovative customized packages and services to remain competitive.
The invasion of banking by technology has created an information age and commoditization of banking services. ICICI have come to realize that survival in the new e-economy depends on delivering some or all of their banking services on the Internet while continuing to support their traditional infrastructure. The rise of E-banking is redefining business relationships and the most successful banks will be those that can truly strengthen their relationship with their customers. Without any doubt, the international scope of E-banking provides new growth perspectives and Internet business is a catalyst for new technologies and new business processes.
