About Banking in India
Indian Banking Sector has great potential to become 5th world’s largest banking sector by 2020. During the financial year 2016-13, the growth of banking sector was approx 21.2 percent.
Demand of Banking Products
The demand of banking products like saving account, current account, credit cards, loans etc are increasing among the Indian people as many of the factors like online banking & shopping, fund transfer & other things are making the life of the people easy going & comfortable.
Adoption of banking technology
The IT revolution has had a great impact on the Indian banking system. The use of computers has led to the introduction of online banking in India. The use of computers in the banking sector in India has increased many fold after the economic liberalization of 1991 as the country's banking sector has been exposed to the world's market. Indian banks were finding it difficult to compete with the international banks in terms of customer service, without the use of information technology.
Expansion of Banking Infrastructure
As per the census of 2011, 58.7% of households are availing banking services in the country. There are 102,343 branches of Scheduled Commercial Banks (SCBs) in the country, out of which 37,953 (37%) bank branches are in the rural areas and 27,219 (26%) in semi-urban areas, constituting 63% of the total numbers of branches in semi-urban and rural areas of the country. However, a significant proportion of the households, especially in rural areas, are still outside the formal fold of the banking system. To extend the reach of banking to those outside the formal banking system, Government and Reserve Bank of India (RBI) are taking various initiatives from time to time.
Today, banks are turning their focus to servicing clients. Banks in the country, including those in the public sector, are emphasizing on enhancing their technology infrastructure, in order to improve customer experience and gain a competitive edge. The popularity of internet and mobile banking is higher than ever before, with Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and data warehousing expected to drive the next wave of technology in banks. Indian banks are also progressively adopting an integrated approach to risk management. Most banks already have in place the framework for asset–liability match, credit and derivatives risk management.
Upcoming Banking Scenario in term of Job Prospect
Indian Banking Industry currently having 1,175,149 employees and has a total of 109,811 branches in India and 171 branches abroad and manages an aggregate deposit of INR67504.54 billion (US$1.1 trillion or €840 billion) and bank credit of INR52604.59 billion (US$880 billion or €650 billion). The net profit of the banks operating in India was INR1027.51 billion (US$17 billion or €13 billion) against a turnover of INR9148.59 billion (US$150 billion or €110 billion) for the fiscal year 2012-13.
Eliminating the human capital related challenges, especially in state owned banks (forming the largest share of the country’s banking industry), will be a major growth driver for the industry in the future. A McKinsey report suggests that banks in India need to recruit employees with the both core and specialist skills, and control attrition especially at the junior levels. Non private Indian banks will greatly benefit from productivity improvements, such as a re-engineering of the institutions knowledge processes, better use of technology and building industry level utilities.
