In general, banking may be classified as retail and corporate banking. Retail banking, which is designed to meet the requirement of individual customers and encourage their savings, includes payment of utility bills, consumer loans, credit cards, checking account and the like.

Metamorphic changes took place in the Indian financial system during the eighties and nineties consequent upon deregulation and liberalization of economic policies of the government. India began shaping up its economy and earmarked ambitious plan for economic growth. Consequently, a sea change in money and capital markets took place. Application of marketing concept in the banking sector was introduced to enhance the customer satisfaction the policy of privatization of banking services aims at encouraging the competition in banking sector and introduction of financial services. Consequently, services such as Demat, Internet banking, Portfolio Management, Venture capital, etc, came into existence to cater to the needs of public. An important agenda for every banker today is greater operational efficiency and customer satisfaction. The mew watchword for the bank is pretty ambitious: customer delight.

The introduction to the marketing concept to banking sectors can be traced back to American Banking Association Conference of 1958. Banks marketing can be defined as the part of management activity, which seems to direct the flow of banking services profitability to the customers. The marketing concept basically requires that there should be thorough understanding of customer need and to learn about market it operates in. Further the market is segmented so as to understand the requirement of the customer at a profit to the banks.

There is lot of problems that occurred during my research work. Firstly there was lot of biasness on the part of respondents while answering my survey. Lastly fluctuating interest rate is one of the biggest problem in my research work i.e. respondents choose those banks which charge less rate of interest for education loan, ignoring other facilities.

Need of the study:

y The loans from various banks are only being provided to full time students. It is very
good the banks are giving financial support to students but banks provide these loans only to those students who give big securities to banks, but those students who belong to poor families, find it difficult to manage security.

y So these securities are not beneficial for poor students. For avail education loans, one has
to be below age 30 to be eligible to get education loan from bank one has to show some property or the parents salary.

y The banks dont just trust the identity of students and also the college offer letter.
Students should not depend on loan too much because its hard to come unless one is a very good student with good academic track record.

The primary objective of research is to know the mindset of the people regarding education loan and also to find out students perception regarding the loan.

After fulfilling the primary objective, now its turn for the secondary objective which include analysis of details regarding the education loans pursed by the people. The areas, which are to be kept in light, are:

 Amount of loan taken by students.  Institution from which loan has been taken. Ratio of Amount sanctioned by the banks with students demanded y y To know the people requirement for taking education loan. Finding awareness of people regarding education loan.


Collection of information is a basis to make decision. Information collected unsystematically & unscientifically is irrelevant in making decision. Banks & Corporations are continuously collecting information from their people, who have already taken education loan & those who want to take loan. They will provide company systematic and relevant information. Before giving loans, banks and corporations has to see that whether the person will be able to pay EMI or not. For this they seek certain informations like:

y y y y y

How many children do they have? Monthly income (which should more than Rs. 9000) Credit clearance (whether he /she has taken loan and paid it or not.) About their occupation. Mortgage property should be marketable. Page 4

Information comes either from sources internal to the firm or from external sources. External sources, if information can further break down into primary and secondary sources. In my project I have used primary sources or primary data. Primary data are those which are collected specifically by or for the data users .There is no intervening party to summarize the original data. These data are directly collected from the people.


In my research project I have used exploratory research. Exploratory research is a natural step. As the number of opportunities or possible problems may be very large, it is impractical to find and study each of them. Exploratory research is useful to find the most likely alternatives, which are then turned into hypothesis. Formal design is conspicuous By its absence in exploratory studies. The imagination of the researcher is the key factor. However, three lines of at tact may aid in finding hypothesis of value:

Study of secondary sources of information.

Survey of individuals who can opt to have ideas on the General subject

Analysis of selected cause.

I have used exploratory research for my project. This topic Home loans is a wide topic and needs lot of explanation.

Sampling may be defined as the selection of some of an aggregate or the totality on the basis of which a judgment or inference about the aggregate or totality is made. It is the process of obtaining the information about an entire population by examining only part of it. The sampling technique for the problem is: Non Probability Sampling. Under this I have used judgmental and then convenience sampling was done. In judgmental sampling first I sought advice of my instructor. I was told to choose the best sample for my study. After this I selected the items from the universe as per convenience sampling. The universe under study consisted of customers having the following characteristics: -

 Age between 12 years and 60 years ( both male and female)  Education more than and including high school.  People who have already taken education loan.  Residents of BANGALORE. Sample Size: -The size of sample chosen for the questionnaire was 100.

I have collected information from different banks and also collected information from 130 respondents out of which 100 are acceptable.

Methods used for Data Collection:

Primary sources
Questionnaire method was used for data collection. Quite often questionnaire is considered as the heart of research. Hence it should be carefully constructed. The basic objective of preparation of this questionnaire is to know the awareness level of the peoples regarding education loan services offered by different banks in BANGALORE. I framed structural and non disguised questionnaire.

Questionnaire includes: Dichotomous question Multiple choice questions Rank order question Open ended question

Secondary sources of data

Web site, books, magazines, journals, has been used to collect the data.

Total annual income of the people as usually they will avoid telling the truth such details, also the opinion aired by them may be biased due to unavoidable factors. This may affect the interpretation of the data collected up to the extent of the information given by the client is false and biased.

Time limitation while doing project

Many banks provides loan but in this research only four banks are taken for consideration

The respondents are not sincere while giving the feedback related to this project. So it is difficult to put the interpretation.

bank has grown in stature to become one of the leading banking institutions in India. The bank has grown in size to over 5000 branches at the end of FY 2005. Historically government has instructed PNB to rescue troubled banks with as many as seven such banks being merged with the bank.

Current account and saving account consists a percentage of total deposits at 49.9 per cent and is one of the best among nationalized banks. The banks continued focus towards acquiring low cost deposits and the large reach of the bank in rural and semi-urban regions has resulted in improving the percentage share of such deposits.

About 68 per cent of the branches are in the rural and semi-urban regions thus giving the bank access to low cost deposits. Although, large share of low cost deposits facilitated the bank to record high margins during the past few years. The bank is now focusing towards increasing its share in retail advances to maintain these spreads. The yield on the retail advances is relatively higher and PNB has been lagging behind other of retail credit.

IDBI, the erstwhile Principal development financial bank of India limited. The new entity, a company within the meaning of companies act 1956 and a banking company as defined under Banking Regulation Act, 1949, has been formed in accordance with the provisions of IDBI (Transfer of Undertaking and Repeal) Act 2003 (Repeal Act) passed by Parliament. With the Central Government notifying October 1 as the Appointment Day and RBI issuing the requisite notification on September 30 incorporating IDBI ltd as a scheduled bank under the RBI Act, 1934, IDBI formally enters the portals of banking business over and above the business currently being transacted. It may be recalled that the Parliament passed Act, 2003 on December 16, 2003 and the President of India accorded his assent thereto on December 30, 2003. The Repeal Act came into force on July 02, 2004 through a notification of the Government of India, which enabled IDBI to obtain requisite statutory and regulatory approvals, including those from RBI for conversion into a banking company. Although IDBI ltd commences its foray into banking on a standalone basis a, merger of IDBI bank with IDBI ltd, a mutually gainful proposition with positive implications for all stakeholders and clients in terms of operational synergies.

As a management student it is necessary to know about various services that are provided by the banks, and also to know what are the various procedures that are to be fulfilled in getting the services done from various private as well as nationalized banks.

Financial aid is an important factor for students who are planning to study abroad. Careful planning is both necessary and wise. Foreign nationals are required to show proof of sufficient funds to cover at least the first year of their college education to apply for a student visa.

The financial institutions have undergone a sea change after globalization. The banks, nationalized or private have brought down their interests rate for loans, made higher interest to be paid for deposits, avail every kind of service to expedite investments on infrastructure growth of the nation. Now the services of every bank whether private or nationalized has undergone a sea change. it is because of the entrance of the private banks at a larger scale.

The study for difference of nationalized v/s private banks is done to have a watch on the workings of both the banks and to determine that which bank (private and nationalized) is working more effectively.

Problem Environment

Presence of many players- education loans has emerged as the preferred line of business over the last few years and so many players are there in this business due to which there is a tough competition.

It is not so easy to get education loan for higher education from the banks. There are numerous pit falls and hidden costs that the glitzy, catchy colored broachers do not mention.

Problem faced by banks

During the survey made ion banks the PNB official said they allow loan up to Rs.7.5 lakh for higher education in India, for studies abroad the loan limit can be stretched up to Rs. 15 lakhs. But the fact is that only few students apply for loan for studies in India. Mostly they apply for loan for studies abroad.

The loan requires guarantors. However there is quite a large section of loan seekers particularly in U.P, M.P and Bihar, who are not able to take the advantage of loans because of their inability to produce co-guarantors. According to survey, the PNB has disbursed loans to 356 students amounting to at total of Rs. 6.40 lacks.

Trends show that students have been availing these loans for engineering and medical courses within the country and for management and IT related courses abroad.

Problem faced by students

For approaching education loans, one has to be below age 30 to be eligible. The loans from various banks are only being provided to full time students. It is very good the banks are giving financial support to students but banks provide these loans only to those students who give big securities to banks, but those students who belong with poor families, find it difficult to manage security. So these securities are not beneficial for poor students.

To get education loan from bank one has to show some property or the parents salary. The banks dont just trust the identity of students and also the college offer letter. Students should not depend on loan too much because its hard to come unless one is a very good students with good academic track record.

Education loan is one of the booming sector adding a lot to our country economy and helping the students in brightening up their future. Many banks both nationalized & privatized bank has entered in this sector, with attractive and new schemes. Some of the competitors are as follows.

Most of them keep their awareness about education loans from newspapers. Most of them take loan of more than Rs. 250000 The bank are taking more securities form people while give in education loan By seeing analysis interpretation it is know that professional are more in number while talking education loan so the banks should create more awareness among no professional regarding education loan

The candidate who applies for education loan should be properly aware regarding the various banks processes and procedures that are to be fulfilled, as they face problem when they do not have proper knowledge the same.

The education loan requires guarantors so student should have good co-guarantor that can have good repayment capacity when they apply for loan .

Sometimes bankers dont treat their customers properly. There has to be a major change in how banks treat their customers. The bankers should know that they need customers as much as customers need them.

The banks provide education loans only to those students who give big securities to banks, but those students who belong with poor families they cant give big securities, so banks must make some provisions for those students who belong to poor families.

Bank should be go for advertisement campaign from scratch

Bank should try to cash its brand image

Bank should increase its production line in education loan

Bank should advertised about education loan near to colleges and companies
