Analysis of Credit Methodology, Bank of India

This project ANALYSIS OF THE CREDIT METHODOLOGY has been prepared with facts and figures pertaining to Bank of India, New Delhi Zonal Office and undertaken to understand the credit exposure and appraisal of the borrower of Bank of India. Indian Banking Industry is growing faster than ever before and shows great opportunities with in rural as well as semi-urban India. Bank of India with its age old name has a place in peoples mind. But with the globalization, private banks that came just 10-15 years back are giving tough competition to Bank of India. Bank of India is one of the largest nationalized banks in India while its direct competitors are Bank of Baroda, Punjab National Bank, Central Bank etc. Whereas it is also competing with other private banks like ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, Standard Chartered Bank etc. In the Banking Sector, deposits and advances plays a vital role on which income of the bank depends because on deposits banks gives the interest and on advance bank charges interest which is more than the deposit interest and the difference between the lending and the deposit interest is the profit of the bank. In this project various kinds of loans and advances and their bifurcation is discussed over a few years. The report also includes the brief description of the mechanism of giving credit to the customers.

2. INTRODUCTION History of Banking Sector:

The name Bank derives from the Italian word banco which means desk/bench, used by the Florentine Bankers, who used to make their transaction above the desk covered by a green table cloth. However, there are traces of banking activity even in ancient times. Banking in India originated in the last decades of the 18th century. The first banks were the General Bank of India which started in 1786 and the Bank of Hindustan both of which are now defunct. Bank of Bengal, Bank of Bombay and Bank of Madras was established as Presidency Banks. The three banks merged in 1921 to form the Imperial Bank of India, which is known by State Bank of India after Indias independence. Indian Bank in Calcutta established the Union Bank in 1839, but failed in 1848 as a consequence of the economic crises of 1848-49. The Allahabad Bank, established in 1865 and still functioning today, is the oldest Joint Stock Bank in India. The first entirely Indian joint stock bank was the Oudh Commercial Bank established in 1881 in Faizabad. It failed in 1958. The next step was the Punjab National Bank established in Lahore in 1895 which has survived to the present and is now one of the largest banks in India. Around the turn of the 20th Century, the Indian economy was passing through a relative period of stability. Indians had established small banks, most of which served particular ethnic and religious communities. The period between 1906 and 1911, Swadeshi movement inspired local businessmen and political figures to find banks for the Indian community. A number of Banks established then, one of them was Bank of India Others were Corporation Bank, Indian Bank, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank and Central Bank of India.

Indias independence marked the end of a regime of the Laissez-Faire for the Indian Banking. The Government of India initiated measures to play an active role in the economic life of the nation and the Industrial Resolution Policy adopted by the government in 1948 envisaged a mixed economy. The major steps to regulate Banking included:

In 1948, the Reserve Bank of India, Indias central banking authority was nationalized and it became an institution owned by the government of India. In 1949, the Banking Regulation Act was enacted which empowered the RBI to regulate, control and inspect the banks in India. Banking means the accepting, for the purpose of lending or investment, of the deposits of money from the public, repayable on demand or otherwise, and withdrawal by cheque, draft, order or otherwise.

GOI issued an ordinance and nationalized the 14banks with effect from the midnight of July 19, 1969. A second dose of nationalization of 6 more commercial banks followed in 1980. The stated reason for the nationalization was to give the government more control of credit delivery. With the second dose of nationalization, the GOI controlled around 91% of the Banking business of India. Later on in the year 1993, the government merged New Bank of India with Punjab National Bank. It was the only merger between nationalized banks and resulted in the reduction of the nationalized banks from 20 to 19. After this till 1990s, the nationalized banks grew at a pace of around 4%, closer to the average growth rate of Indian economy.

In the early 1990s, the Narsimha Roa government embarked on a policy of liberalization, licencing a small number of private banks. These came to be known as New Generation Tech-savvy Banks and include Global Trust Bank, Axis Bank (earlier as UTI Bank), ICICI Bank and HDFC Bank. The move along with the rapid growth rate in the economy of India revitalized the Banking sector in India, which has seen rapid growth with strong contribution from all the three sectors of banks namely: Government Banks, Private Banks and Foreign banks. The next stage for the Indian Banking has been setup with the proposed relaxation in the norms for Foreign Direct Investment, where all foreign investors in banks may be given voting rights which could exceed the present cap of 10%, at present it has gone up to 49% with some restrictions. The new policy shook the banking sector in India completely. Bankers till this time, were used to the 4-6-4 method (Borrow at 4%; Lend at 6%; Go Home at 4%) of functioning. The new wave ushered in a modern outlook and tech-savvy methods of working for traditional banks. All this leads to the retail boom in India. People not just demanded more from their banks but also received more. Today, rural India still remains a challenge for the private sector and foreign banks. In terms of quality of assets, Indian Banks are considered to have clean, strong and transparent Balance Sheets related to other Banks in comparable economies in its region. The Banking Industry is highly competitive industry in India where so many banks compete with each other. There are around 500 commercial, regional and co-operative banks in India which makes it difficult for the players to survive. As per the current scenario, the banking industry is suffering from the stage of recession, but as far as the global banking is concerned, the Indian banking system is very much protected from the global recession due its traditional phase and rigid rules. The public sector banks are the basic foundation of the Indian banking sector.

In India, many banks compete with each other making Banking Industry one of the most competitive industries in India. In India, there are more than 500 banks which make it difficult for other banks to survive. In order to survive, they have to overtake each other. The Banking Industry is divided into Public sector banks, Private sector banks and Cooperative banks. Public sector banks are the banks which have government undertaking of more than 51%. Public sector banks constitute most of the Indian Banking Industry assets. On the other hand, Private sector banks in India are also witnessing immense progress. Objectives of the study: Through complimentary case studies and hands on analyses, to learn about various kinds of loans and advances and the guidelines related to them. To study the credit appraisal system. To study the impact of loans and advances on the profitability of the Bank. To promote and bring new business to the office by stressing on key factors.

Bank of India was founded on 7th September, 1906 by a group of eminent businessmen from Mumbai. The Bank was under private ownership and control till July 1969 when it was nationalised along with 13 other banks. Beginning with one office in Mumbai, with a paid-up capital of Rs.50 lakh and 50 employees, the Bank has made a rapid growth over the years and blossomed into a mighty institution with a strong national presence and sizable international operations. In business volume, the Bank occupies a premier position among the nationalised banks. The Bank has 4001 branches in India spread over all states/ union territories including specialized branches. These branches are controlled through 51 Zonal Offices. There are 29 branches/ offices (including five representative offices) and 3 Subsidiaries and 1 joint venture abroad. The Bank came out with its maiden public issue in 1997 and follow on Qualified Institutions Placement in February 2008. While firmly adhering to a policy of prudence and caution, the Bank has been in the forefront of introducing various innovative services and systems. Business has been conducted with the successful blend of traditional values and ethics and the most modern infrastructure. The Bank has been the first among the nationalised banks to establish a fully computerised branch and ATM facility at the Mahalaxmi Branch at Mumbai way back in 1989. The Bank is also a Founder Member of SWIFT in India. It pioneered the introduction of the Health Code System in 1982, for evaluating/ rating its credit portfolio. The Bank's association with the capital market goes back to 1921 when it entered into an agreement with the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) to manage the BSE Clearing House. It is an association that has blossomed into a joint venture with BSE, called the BOI Shareholding Ltd. to extend depository services to the stock broking community. Bank of India was the first Indian Bank to open a branch outside the country, at London, in 1946, and also the first to open a branch in Europe, Paris in 1974.

5. DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT 5.1 Lending Money to Public

Lending money is one of the two major activities of a bank. Banks accept deposit from public for safe-keeping and pay interest to them. They then lend this money to earn interest on this. In a way, the banks act as intermediaries between the people who have the money to lend and those who have the need for money to carry out business transactions. The difference between the rates at which the interest is paid in deposits and is charged on loans, is called the spread. Banks lend money in various forms and they lend for practically every activity. From the point of view of security, loans are given against or in exchange of the ownership (physical or constructive) of various types of tangible items. Some of the securities against which the banks lend are: Commodities Debts Financial Instruments Real Estate Automobiles Consumer Durable Goods Documents of title Apart from above categories, the Banks also lend to people on their net worth. Such loans are called clean and the banks are understandably cagey about extending such loans. The credit card arms of the various banks fill up this void. Cash credit (CC) Account: This account is the primary method in which Banks lend money against the security of commodities and debt. It runs like a current account except that the money that can be withdrawn from this account is not restricted to the amount deposited in the account. Instead, the account holder is permitted to withdraw a certain sum called a limit or credit facility in excess of the amount deposited in the account. Cash credits are payable on demand. These are, therefore, counter part of demand deposits of the Bank.

Page 12

Analysis of Credit Methodology, Bank of India

Overdraft: The word overdraft means the act of overdrawing from a Bank Account. In other words, the account holder withdraws more money from a Bank than has been deposited in it. Bill discounting: Bill discounting is a major activity with some of the smaller Banks. Under this type of lending, Bank takes the bill drawn by the borrower on his (borrowers) customer and pays him immediately deducting some amount as discount/ commission. The bank then presents the bill to the borrowers customer on the due date of the bill and collects the total amount. If the bill is delayed, the borrower or a customer pays the bank a pre-determined interest depending on the terms of transaction. Term Loan: Term Loans are counter parts of Fixed Deposits in the Bank. Banks lend money in this mode when the repayment is sought to be made in fixed, pre-determined instalments. This type of loan is normally given to the borrowers for acquiring long term assets i.e. assets which will benefit the borrower over a long period (exceeding at least one year) like purchases of Plant & Machinery, constructing building for factory, setting up new projects fall in this category. Financing for purchase of automobiles, consumer durables, real estate and creation of infrastructure also falls in this category. The asset for which loan is given is held as principle security and other collateral securities may be taken for security reasons as per the requirements. Future profitability is considered as primary importance so the person is able to pay and not a defaulter. So, profitability ratio and Debt Service Coverage Ratios are considered to the most important. Non Fund Credit: This type of credit is not given in real but bank provides Guarantee and Letter of Credit (L/C) to avail this credit. 5.2 IMPORTANCE OF LENDING: Lending is a core function of a Bank, which contributes significantly to its profits. Funds mobilized from deposits are deployed by Banks in making loans and advances to various business, trade and commerce. The main purpose of loans and advances is to earn profit by way of interest spread i.e. the differential between the average interest rates receivables of loans and payables on deposits.

5.3 MODES OF DELIEVERY OF CREDIT FACILITIES: Sole Banking Arrangements Multiple Banking Consortium Lending Syndication

Sole Banking: Here all the credits needs of a borrowing unit are met by a single Bank. The accounts are rated like AAA for (LC1 to LC2) and AA for (LC3 to LC4) where Bank of India is Sole Banker. Borrowers shall normally obtain Banks prior approval in case they would like to switch over to Multiple Banking Arrangement or consortium lending. Whenever a customers credit requirements exceeds the exposer ceiling or Rs. 400 crore whichever is higher, the borrower would be encouraged to scout for another Bank/ Institution to share credit facilities under Multiple Banking, Consortium or Syndicate Arrangements. Multiple Banking: Here the credit needs of different divisions of a borrowing company are met independently by different banks without any formal agreement/ arrangement amongst them. Where Bank of India is the sole banker and the borrower desires to avail of credit limits from other Bank/s without formal consortium arrangements, the reasons for the borrower waiting to shift to another bank are ascertained and recorded. The Bank can permit the borrower to bank elsewhere provided the borrower agrees to furnish from time to time details of the various facilities availed from other bank/s. Again Banks exposure for working capital needs should not exceed 75% of the total working capital requirements of the borrower.

Page 14

Analysis of Credit Methodology, Bank of India

Consortium Lending: The entire credit needs of a borrowing unit are financed by a group of Banks by forming a consortium. It is a concept to promote collective applications of banking resources. Syndication: A syndicated credit is an arrangement between two or more lending institutions to provide a credit facility using common loan documentation. Advantages of Consortium: Notionally borrower to deal with one bank Entire fund requirement arranged by the syndication lender Unlike consortium default risk shared under syndication Borrower gets competitive price through bids Fixed price lending Bank of India encourages financing under such agreements. 5.4 PRINCIPLES OF LENDING: Banks follows the basic principles of prudence while lending, as the money banks are lending belongs to their depositors and has to be repaid on demand or on maturity as per the terms of the deposits. The Bank also follows certain other principles, as described below that help banks in honouring their commitments to the depositors and earing profit from their lending activities. 1. Safety and Security Principle: Safety principle means timely return of the funds, lent by the bank. While granting a loan, a bank carefully examines the economic, commercial and financial viability of the applicants business, quality of its management (integrity, honesty, willingness to repay loan, reputation in market, business acumen etc.) and the past track record. Assets acquired by bank loan are charged/ hypothecated to the bank by the way of its security in the form of mortgages of immovable property and pledge/ hypothecation of goods and receivables of the borrowers wherever necessary additional collateral security of tangible assets and/ or third party guarantees are also obtained by bank.

Page 15

Analysis of Credit Methodology, Bank of India

2. Risk Diversification Principle: Lending involves risk taking and banks always strive to minimize such a risk. The main risk in lending is, credit risk, arising from the business failure of the borrower or default in payment of the principle/ interest by the borrower due to other reasons. The credit risk is sought to be diversified by banks by avoiding concentration of loans to a few borrowers/ industries/ sectors, as per the prudential norms set internally and stipulated by the regulatory authorities.

3. Profitability principle: Profit-earning is necessary for any business to sustain and grow. Further, the logical corollary to risk taking, is profit making. Banks seek to earn profit by charging an interest higher than payable by them on their deposits. The difference between the average interest earned of loans/ investments (yield) and paid in deposits (cost of funds) is the gross interest spread. 4. Liquidity Principle: A bank has to manage its assets and liabilities in such a manner that it can meet all its deposits liabilities in time, out of money acquired as repayment of loans. It has to attune the maturities of its liabilities. No bank can afford a delay or default in meeting its deposits or other liabilities, as this would result in loss of trust and faith of the depositors/ customers, on which rest the edifice of banking business. 5. Loan Purpose Principle: Banks grants loans and advances for lawful purposes as per public policy and its own objectives. Unlawful activities include money laundering (for terrorists activities, illegal trafficking and drugs) or for activities banned or restricted by the RBI and other regulatory and statutory activities are not financed. While avoiding giving loans for unlawful or restrictive purposes, a bank may have special knowledge and expertise of certain industries and would therefore lend mainly to the units in these segments. Every banks portfolio is therefore different as per its objectives and credit policy. 6. Government Policies: There are certain government policies under which banks have to give loans to the priority sector.

5.5 How lending function works:

The loan application is received by the branch with the supporting documents(security papers, third party guarantee, consolidated balance sheets and income statements of last few years, loan purpose verification documents etc.) The application is processed by the branch manager and analyzed that the applicant is viable for the approval of loan or not. If he requires some more documents as per the needs, he can ask the applicant for the required documents. Proper verification is done of the security held by the bank and the verification charges are to be borne by the applicant. Branch manager finds certain key ratios like current ratio, profitability ratio, debt equity ratio, interest coverage ratio, debt service coverage ratio. These computed ratios are compared with the guidelines given by the bank. If the applicant is unable to stand by on these parameters then the application has been rejected. If branch manager finds applicant viable the rating is done, through this rating it us decided how much rate of interest is to be imposed. If the loan amount is within the limits of the branch manager, he approves the loan amount and if the loan amount is more than the limits of the branch then that application is sent to the zonal office. The application is processed again in the zonal office, key ratios are calculated, the processing authority gives its comments and the application is sent to the sanction authority. If the applicant is capable to fulfill the requirements as per the banking guidelines then the loan is approved, unless it is sent back to the branch for further enquiry and to fulfill the required documents.

Key Ratios

Current Ratio: Current ratio is a financial ratio that measures whether or not a firm has enough resources to pay its debts over the next 12 months. It compares a firm's current assets to its current liabilities. It is expressed as follows: Current Ratio = Current Assets Current Liabilities

The current ratio is an indication of a firm's market liquidity and ability to meet creditor's demands. Acceptable current ratios vary from industry to industry. If current liabilities exceed current assets (the current ratio is below 1), then the company may have problems meeting its short-term obligations. Debt equity Ratio: The debt-to-equity ratio is a financial ratio indicating the relative proportion

of shareholders equity and debt used to finance a company's assets. Closely related to leveraging, the ratio is also known as Risk, Gearing or Leverage. The two components are often taken from the firm's balance sheet or statement of financial position (socalled book value), but the ratio may also be calculated using market values for both, if the company's debt and equity are publicly traded, or using a combination of book value for debt and market value for equity financially. Interest Coverage Ratio: A ratio used to determine how easily a company can pay interest on outstanding debt. The lower the ratio, the more the company is burdened by debt expense. When a company's interest coverage ratio is 1.5 or lower, its ability to meet interest expenses may be questionable. An interest coverage ratio below 1 indicates the company is not generating sufficient revenues to satisfy interest expenses. Interest Coverage Ratio: Earnings before Interest & Tax Interest Expense

Page 18

Analysis of Credit Methodology, Bank of India

Debt Service Coverage Ratio: The debt service coverage ratio (DSCR), also known as "debt coverage ratio," (DCR) is the ratio of cash available for debt servicing to interest, principal and lease payments. It is a popular benchmark used in the measurement of an entity's (person or corporation) ability to produce enough cash to cover its debt (including lease) payments. The higher this ratio is, the easier it is to obtain a loan. The phrase is also used in commercial banking and may be expressed as a minimum ratio that is acceptable to a lender; it may be a loan condition or covenant. Breaching a DSCR covenant can, in some circumstances, be an act of default.

Operations Department
Once the Credit Manager approves the loan, the application moves to the operations department. On being satisfied with the attached documentation, the operations department keep for safekeeping. It also handles other miscellaneous tasks such as sending a copy of loan payment history to the applicant if he so desires on receipt of the appropriate payment. Finally, after the loan has been fully paid by the applicant, it is also the duty of the Operations Department to grant the NOC to the applicant and thus close the case.

Here the major contribution in the priority sector is of Micro, Small and Medium enterprises. The main reason for high contribution of these industries is that the data is collected from the metropolitan city and here the major dealing is with enterprises. Due to the setting of new industries agricultural loan is decreasing year by year in this area. There is a drastically increase in micro enterprises loans because Bank of India is providing more loans to the very small business to grow them and these small business does not have sufficient funds to start the organization.

Analysis of Credit Methodology, Bank of India

Loan against TDR (FD): This is the loan taken against the Fixed Deposit. So, risk while giving this kind of loan is negligible. If a person fails to repay the loan bank can take back the amount from the Fixed Deposit. Home Loan above 25 lakhs: Home loan if less than 25 lakhs then it is considered to be priority sector loan otherwise not. Infrastructural Loans: These loans are like making of roads, building of dams and power plants etc. Retail Trading: Retail trading if less than 20 lakhs then it is considered to be priority sector lending otherwise not. Commercial Estate Loan: It is related to the builders who make the colonies, flats and sells them on profit. Personal Loan: This loan is given to the person for his personal needs like marriage or for any other kind of need. Capital Market Loan: These loans are given for the purchase of stock and shares and these stock and shares held as the security to minimize the loss.

6.4Advances Portfolio: Pre-Shipment Credit Packing Credit

Pre-Shipment finance is the credit granted to the exporters by a financial institution. Pre-Shipment finance is part of working capital finance. There is no fixed formula to determine the quantum of finance that is granted to an exporter against a specific order. The only guiding principle is the concept of need based finance i.e. finance when there is a need for it and the exporter requires it. Banks describe the percentage of margin, depending on factors such as: The nature of order The nature of the commodity The capability of the exporter to bring in the requisite contribution in the shape of margin The main objective behind pre-shipment finance or pre export finance is to enable exporter to: Procure Raw Material Carry out manufacturing process Provide a secure warehouse for goods and raw material Process and pack the goods Ship the goods to the buyer

Packing Credit Loan is very low in the year 2008, but it can be seen that in the year 2012, there is drastic increase in the pre-shipment credit- packing credit. The reason for this increase is that the branch increased its number of customers in the year 2011 and this made the branch to get more exposure in packing credit loan to the big corporate. Also, the packing credit limit for the existing customer had increased in accordance with the sufficient pre requisite terms and conditions.

PCFC (Pre-shipment Credit in Foreign Currency)

With the objective of making credit available at internally competitive rates, Ads have been permitted to the extend Pre-shipment Credit Loans in Foreign Currency to Exporters. Ads have been permitted to extend pre-shipment credit in foreign currency in order to facilitate the procurement of raw material/ components etc. required to fulfil the export order. The procurement of raw material or components may be made from the international markets or from domestic markets. Authorized dealers are permitted to extend pre-shipment credit in foreign currency (PCFC) with an objective of making the credit available to the exporters at internationally competitive price. This is considered as an added advantage under which credit is provided in foreign currency in order to facilitate the purchase of raw material after fulfilling the basic export orders. The rate of interest on PCFC is linked to London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR). Accordingly to guidelines, the final cost of exporter must not exceed 3.75% over 6 month LIBOR, excluding the tax. The exporter has freedom to avail PCFC in convertible currencies like USD, Pound, Sterling, Euro, Yen etc. However, the risk associated with the cross currency truncation is that of the exporter. The sources of funds for the banks for extending PCFC facility include the foreign currency balances available with the Bank in Exchange, 50% in Earner Foreign Currency Account (EFCA), Resident Foreign Currency Account RFC (D) and Foreign Currency (Non-resident) Accounts.

Analysis of Credit Methodology, Bank of India

Banks are also permitted to utilize the foreign currency balances available under Escrow account and Exporters Foreign Currency accounts. It ensures that the requirement of the funds by the account holder for permissible transactions is met. But the limit prescribed for maintaining maximum balance in the account is not exceeded. In addition, banks may arrange for borrowings from abroad. Banks may negotiate terms of credit with overseas bank for the purpose of grant of PCFC to exporters, without the prior approval of RBI, provided the rate of interest on borrowings does not exceed 3.75% over 6 months LIBOR.

Before 2009, bank has not issued any PCFC but from 2009 it has started to issue this credit and this credit is increasing with the passage of time. Figure 6: PCFC (Pre-Shipment Credit in Foreign Currency)

Demand Loans
A loan which is repayable on demand (i.e. without prior notice), rather than on a specified date is known as demand loan. In other words, it is a loan (such as on overdraft) with or without a fixed maturity date, but which can be recalled anytime (often on 24- hour notice) by the lender and must be paid in full on the date of demand. Also, the borrower can pay off a demand loan at any time without incurring early payment penalties. It is also known as Call Loan or money at call. It is given for a maximum period of 3 years such as micro, small, medium loans etc. and if the loan is repayable in more than 3 years it becomes the term loan. Figure 7: Demand Loans

Demand loans shows downfall in the year 2009 by Rs. 216 crore and then slowly increased in the year 2011 and 2012. The reason for this was that the ratio of interest income was relatively less in demand loans than any other. So the exposure from demand loans was shifted to other which probably gave high rate of return in the interest rates. Also, this increased interest income. Therefore, the target for demand loan merely shut down and then increased a little in next consecutive years.

Foreign Currency Demand Loans

Demand loans which are borrowed other than in domestic currency are termed as Foreign Currency Demand Loans. Here, the interest rate is charged in home currency but is very volatile because of fluctuating exchange rates of different currencies which may lead to loss to the bank.

Foreign Currency Demand Loan is showing a decreasing trend and this is because of the same reason that the rate of interest income vis--vis demand loans was not feasible and viable enough to make bank to earn profits.

Cash Credit
It is usually a credit at a bank established by the negotiation of a loan from a bank. It is like a running current account facility to the corporate specifying the withdrawal limit and drawing power. The application for the cash credit loan is received by the branch, and the branch officer process the application, if the loan amount is within the sanctioning limit power of the branch then they can approves the loan otherwise they send the application to the Zonal office after analysing and giving their comments. When the application for the cash credit loan is received, the first step is to check the documents whether the required documents are attached with the file or not. Then the balance sheet of last two years and proceeding 4 years is analysed and the key ratios: Current ratio, Debt equity ratio, Interest service coverage ratio and profitability ratio are calculated and compared with the standard bank. Interest Service Coverage Ratio is considered to be the most important ratio for cash credit loan because it shows whether the applicant is able to pay off the interest amount of the loan or not. If the applicant is able to fulfil those standard format requirements then the further processing is done of his application otherwise the loan has been rejected and when the applicant fulfils the ratio requirements, then the maximum amount of loan for which the applicant is credible is calculated. While calculating CC limit, more stress is given on the primary assets mortgaged by the bank i.e. stock and debtors but secondary security of property and third party guarantees may be required to remain on the safer side. Credibility is calculated from the primary assets, 40% margin is there in case of debtors (Book Debts) and 25% margin in case of Stock. Then it is calculated whether the company or firm is Micro, Small or Medium which is done on the basis of Fixed Plant and Machinery. If the value of is less than 25 lakhs it is considered to be micro, if it is greater than 25 lakhs but less than 5 crore it is small enterprise and greater than 5 crore and less than 10 crore is medium enterprise and beyond this large enterprises.

The SBS rating form is filled and the rate of interest is calculated on the basis of category of SBS rating in which applicant lies. Standard format is there for SBS rating to check how stronger the applicant has the credibility. More the credibility lesser will be the rate of interest. Proper inspection is done by the authorized person of the applicants property which is held as the secondary security. Then the market value, book value and the circle value of the property is calculated. The value of the property which is taken into consideration is the circle rate, it is the rate at which bank can sell the property at any point of time. Processing officer gives his comments on various ratios and findings after analysing the application. Working capital assessment is done and the processed application has been sent to the sanctioning authority. Sanctioning authority analysed the application according to their needs and if they found suitable then approves the loan unless gives their comments and sent back to the processing officer, if processing officer is able to fulfil such requirements then he can do otherwise asks for branch manager help. If the requirement is fulfilled by the branch manager, then the loan is approved, otherwise it has been rejected. The credibility of the applicant is reviewed every year with the same procedure.

An overdraft occurs when withdrawals from a bank account exceed the available balance. In this situation a person is said to be overdrafts. If there is a prior agreement with the account provider for an overdraft protection plan, and the amount withdrawn is within this authorized overdraft limit, then interest is normally charged at the agreed rate. If the balance exceeds the agreed limits, then fees may be charged and higher interest rate might apply. Figure 11: Overdrafts over last 5 Years

It can be seen that in the year 2009, there was a drastically increase in the overdrafts with a growth rate of 31.24%. Also, in the year 2010, there has been an increase in the overdrafts but thereafter that it has shown a negative growth rate. The reason for this could be the customers are becoming more efficient to maintain their account and also there requirement is also within their limits.

6.6 Yield on Advances

This is the crux or core of any Commercial Bank. For a bank, yield on total advances gives the efficient allocation of resources by the bank. It is the net interest income earned from advances given to the corporate and all relative customers. Increasing trend vis--vis cost of deposits gives the true picture regarding efficiency of the bank. Figure 15: Graphical Presentation of Yield on Advances

Thus it is showing an increasing trend and there is a sign of good or better performance. Bank should focus on minimizing cost of deposits and maximizing yield on advances. It also shows the sign of productivity of the bank because there is hardly any change in number of employees in the bank. Table 20: Net Profit of the Bank
2009 Net Profit 3073 2010 1787 2011 2542

(Rs. in Crore)
2012 2678

The main reason of large change in profit in 2009 is that more are more deposits in the bank and due to more deposits bank have to pay more amount of interest and the amount of the operating expenses also increases which causes a decline in the Net Profit. There are various government schemes under which bank has to lend the money to priority sectors at low rate of interest which restricts the bank to earn more on lending.

The following is the methodology used in the project:

Design: This is an Analytical work on processing of loans and advances in Bank of India, one of the largest Nationalized Banks.

Data Collection: Both the primary and secondary data are used in the study. Primary data- Calculated the creditworthiness of certain companies by stressing on ratio analysis but for privacy of the bank the data is not available in the report.

Secondary data- Internet, Books, Banks Circulars, Educational Material and Bank
files etc.

8. Findings
Need for credible, independent judgments on the creditworthiness and solvency of depository institutions in the zonal office. Zonal office of Bank of India, credit analyses presents proven methodologies that will allow you to produce an informed evaluation of the impact of a banks credit risk on investment, lending and acquisition decisions. Bank of India credit analysis teaches the qualitative and quantitative factors and methodology used to evaluate banks credit policy. Through complimentary case studies and hands on analyses, participants leave with knowledge of technique and perspective necessary to access the creditworthiness and solvency of depository institutions so they can make independent decisions.

Page 45

Analysis of Credit Methodology, Bank of India

9. Interpretation and Conclusions

It can be concluded that the overall performance of the bank is improving. Some documents in the file were folded or were missed out while checking the errors in the file. The main reason for increase in profit is the increase in the advances. The zonal office is able to control its cost and thus showing an overall performance in its functioning. Bank of India is trying to capture the foreign market because a lot of revenue of its coming from its foreign branches. So, it is stressing more on expanding business in the foreign to increase its revenue and profit. In May 2012, Bank of India started fully computerized system while lending loan and lot of paper work now have been reduced. Financial accounting information is affected by estimates and assumptions. Accounting standards allow different accounting policies, which impairs comparability and hence ratio analysis is less useful in such situations.

Page 46

Analysis of Credit Methodology, Bank of India

10. Recommendations
Executives/Co-ordinators shows that the presence of errors is mostly avoidable, only if a little time is spent in reviewing the file before logging it into Credit. Loans schemes of Bank of India are very good but aggressive marketing is required to compete with marketing strategies of private banks. Efforts should be made for direct marketing with clients/ corporates for entry into consortium arrangements. All the employees and customers should be more aware about the details of the internet banking. Focus should be made to increase fee based income besides high yielding advances.

Page 47

Analysis of Credit Methodology, Bank of India

11. Limitations
Due to the shorter period of time of 2 months, it is not possible to go in depth of each kind of particular loan, so more stress is given on Cash Credit loans, Term loans and Consortium lending during the training period. Bank of India has certain rules of privacy because of them I am not able to show the guidelines of the Bank set for the approval of loan, parameters of the key ratios and to show any processed application. Comparisons made for recommendations were with the past year data of Bank of India and the industry benchmarks but there is a possibility that some other banks are doing more well in some particular areas. As a trainee and not a permanent employee of the bank, bank managers hesitate to disclose the regulatory matters and some information and may be some guidelines of the bank. Even they disclose they cant permit to use the information in the report. Eg. Name of any party.

Page 48

Analysis of Credit Methodology, Bank of India

12. Future improvements

More careful study of the loan files is possible. Data compiled can be compared to other leading banks rather than comparing it only with the industry benchmarks. There must be some space of improvement in the proper division and delegation of work which increases the work speed and decreases the operating cost. Still old techniques are used while collecting the data from different branches and then the data is compiled which takes a lot of time, so some new technique or software should be used to collect the data to minimize the operating costs. Some leniency has been adopted in some cases while lending loans to people, so these leniencies should be avoided and strict rules have to be followed to avoid the default of repayments of loans. New marketing should be followed to attract more customers. Proper training should be providing to the new and existing staff to increase their efficiency.
