Industry Overview : Banking is different from other businesses. In banking, Raw material and Final output is same. Money. High level of borrowed funds are not good for other types of businesses. In banking it is necessary to borrow. Banking gives the access to nearly all levels of people in society. Hardly any other businesses can do that. Use of public money is very big in banking business with respect to other businesses. Hardlany other businesses achieve the status TO BIG TO FAIL. It’s easy for banks to become that much big. Real asset for any bank is mainly Their brand and Human resources. For others Manufacturing plants or machines are important assets. Banks play key role in Economy as giving loans or financing Infrastructure or housing is important for Govt for that banks may play key Role. For Increasing the business of Banking network of branches is important though in today’s Application era, we don’t need big and Large network. But whatever is the network, that helps many businesses. Like when I need to go for IPO, I prefer KOTAK securities, SBi Cap, Axis Capital rather than Other Investment banker. Because they can use the Bank branch network for receiving payment. Banks are helping general public to invest the money and so Channelising the savings. But the biggest thing a bank is doing is keeping the flow in Economy. Without a bank its impossible for Govt to make it. Banking also helping to make records of income. As we are living in cashless payment era, bank account is must.
