The Logo

Sarve Janah Sukhino Bhavanthu

Prosperity for All

The Bank's motto " Sarve Janah Sukhino Bhavanthu " in Sanskrit, which means " Prosperity for All " is well-professed by the Bank in its day-to-day operations. The Bank's logo has various components, namely Kamadhenu (denoting wish-fulfillment), Kalpatharu (eternity), Balance (justice for all), Wheel (industrial progress) and Wheat Grains (agricultural prosperity) which stand for universal prosperity and as a wishfulfilling credo. The logo in its present form was incorporated in 1972 when the name of the Bank was changed from Canara Banking Corporation (Udipi) Ltd. to Corporation Bank Ltd.

History
The Foundation Corporation Bank came into being as Canara Banking Corporation (Udipi) Limited, on 12th March, 1906, in the temple town of Udupi, by the pioneering efforts of a group of visionaries. The Bank started functioning with just Rs.5000/- as its capital and at the end of the first day, the resources stood at 38 Rupees-13 Annas-2 Pies. The Founder President Khan Bahadur Haji Abdullah Haji Kasim Saheb Bahadur, committed to fulfill the long felt banking needs of the people and also to inculcate the habit of savings, provided the muchneeded impetus to founding a financial institution that would bring about prosperity to the society. The content of the first Appeal to the public dated 19th February, 1906 speaks volume about the lofty ideals and ethos behind the foundation. The Founder President Haji Abdullah declared that: "The Primary object in forming Corporation is not only to cultivate habits of thrift amongst all classes of people, without distinction of caste or creed, but also habits of co-operation amongst all classes. This is Swadeshism pure and simple and every lover of the country is expected to come forward and co-operate in achieving this end in view The days that followed : The initial growth was consciously cautious and need based. The first branch of the Bank was opened at Kundapur in 1923, followed by the second in Mangalore in 1926. The Bank stepped into the then Coorg State in 1934 by opening its seventh branch at Madikeri. In 1937 the Bank was included in the second schedule of Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934. Prosperity to All : In 1939, the Banks name changed from Canara Banking Corporation
Page | 3

(Udipi) Ltd., to Canara Banking Corporation Ltd., and strongly put forth its vision with the motto- Sarve Janah Sukhino Bhavantu which meansProsperity to All The second change in the name of the Bank occurred in 1972, from Canara Banking Corporation Ltd. to Corporation Bank Limited. and finally Corporation Bank following its nationalization on 15th April, 1980. Shouldering National objectives: The Bank took on the priorities of nationalization in full stride and emerged successful in fulfilling the national objectives, while sustaining its performance oriented culture and profit augmenting record. Amidst all this, the Bank crossed Rs.1000 crore-deposit mark in the year 1985 and launched into the 1990s with focus on high quality growth by embracing newer technology.

The end of first phase of Banking sector reforms in India had seen the Bank emerging as the most innovative and dynamic bank in the public sector, outshining other banks in terms of asset quality, capital adequacy, operational efficiency, well diversified income base, profitability, productivity, and strong balance sheet. The tremendous amount of confidence and loyalty reposed by the public in general and customers in particular, manifested it self in the overwhelming response to the IPO of the Bank in the year 1997. A Big Leap to the Big League: As on 31st March, 2012, the Total Business of the Bank was Rs.2,36,611 crore. The Total Deposit stood at Rs.1,36,142 crore and the Total Advances were at Rs.1,00,469 crore. The Networth rose to Rs.8,276 crore.

The Bank has Representative Offices at Dubai and at Hong Kong. Presently, the Bank has a network of 1500 fully automated CBS branches, 1274 ATMs and 3390 Branchless Banking Units across the country.

The Bank has extended Branchless Banking units to 3390 villages and has issued Smart Cards to all account holders in these villages for enabling them to operate their accounts at their doorsteps through the Business Correspondents appointed by the Bank. From 38 Rupees-13 Annas-2 Pies to a business level of Rs.2,36,611 crore and from a Networth of Rs.5,000/- to Rs.8,276 crore, the evolution of the Bank from a Nidhi to graduate as a Premier Public Sector Bank and from the early days of Swadeshism to postLiberalisation days has been a corporate success story. Weathering two world wars, economic depressions, imbibing the latest in technology, responding to financial reforms and the unique record of uninterrupted posting of profits right from its inception in 1906, only further strengthened its its commitment to the people.

Usually such projects would be operationalised through consortium arrangement along with the Term Lending Financial Institutions and other public/ private sector Banks. The project would be appraised by the Lead Bank of the consortium and all other banks would accept the appraisal made by the lead bank. If required, the assistance of the professionals in the line/ project appraisal groups of FIS/ Commercial Banks would be obtained for the appraisal. Before extending finance for Projects, the economic feasibility an financial viability of the project in relation to the macro economic conditions prevailing at the time of conceptualisation of the project and also the likely scenario that may prevail during the normal life span of the project should be established. The project should be able to withstand reasonable levels of variation in crucial parameters which should be established by sensitivity analysis of the cash flows. The means of finance for the project alongwith provisions to meet contingencies such as cost/ time overrun should be established. The entire source of funds for the project from sources otherthan that by the promoters shall be fully tied-up before sanction/ disbursement of the limits. Wherever the project is one of unusually longer duration such as infrastructure development, the involvement of agencies such as Financial Institutions and ways of reducing the blockage of bank's fund that are sourced mainly out of short term lending institutions, take-out financing, securatisation, Inter-Bank participation Certificates, etc. would be resorted to. The disbursements under project Finance would be made strictly in tune with the sanction terms, only after ensuring the end use of funds already disbursed by the consortium, meeting the required margin at each stage of project implementation and certification by the competent consultants/ specialists as per the procedure in vogue from time to time and as decided by the consortium.
Page | 25

Conclusion

Inspite of being more than 100 years old, Corp-bank faces a challenging task to acquire and retain customers in the highly competitive India retail banking industry. An important aspect of this is to build a strong brand image that is tied to the services offered. The article set out to explain the effect of the Branchless Banking initiative of Corp-Bank on its brand image. In trying to achieve this objective, a thorough analysis of all existing models of Branchless Banking was carried out and it was found that the models that help take the bank to the rural areas are much more effective since they help Corp-Bank play to the strength of its brand. At the same time, it would serve the bank well to clearly demarcate offerings made to urban and rural customers and brand them accordingly to gain maximum mileage.
