Achieving the objective of any study is possible after a systematic analysis of facts
and data associated with the study. This is the most important segment of the project. To
evaluate the profitibility & operational efficiency of HDFC Bank Ltd for the purpose of
commenting on the banks performance over duration of 5 years and a comparative analysis
with Axis Bank Ltd. This chapter basically involves application of various tools and
techniques on the data collected. Data for analysis are presented in a summarized manner in
the master sheet. I made an attempt to analysis both profitibility and operational efficiency of
HDFC Bank Ltd. It halps to summarize the large equations of financial and operational data
to make efficient judgement about the banks performance.
To check the Profitibility and Operational efficiency of HDFC Bank Limited.
To compare the Profitibility and Operational efficiency of HDFC Bank Limited with
its competitive Bank
To analyze that which type of services are most preferred and demanded by the

Business is conducted primarily to earn profits. The amount of profit earned measures the
efficiency of a business. The greater the volume of profit, the higher is the efficiency of the
concern. The profit of a business may be measured and analyzed by studying the profitability
of investments attained by the business.

MEANING AND DEFINITION OF PROFIBILITY: The word 'profitability' is composed

of two words, namely; profit and ability. The term profit has already been discussed at length
in detail. The term ability indicates the power of a firm to earn profits. The ability of an
enterprise also denotes its earning power or operating performance. Also, that the business
ability points towards the financial and operational ability of the business. So, on this basis
profitability may be defined as the ability of a given instrument to earn a return from its
use"' Weston and Brigham defines profitability as "the net surplus of a large number of
policies and decisions." Profit being an absolute figure fails to indicate the adequacy of
income or changes in efficiency resulting from financial and operational performance of an
enterprise. Much difficulty and confusion comes home while interpreting the absolute figures
of profit i

3n case of historical or inter-firm comparisons due to variation in the size of investment or

volume of sales etc. Such problems are handled by relating figures of profit either with the
volume of sales or with the level of investment. A quantitative relationship is thereof
established either in the form of ratios or percentages. Such ratios are names as profitability
ratios. Thus, profitability may be regarded as a relative term measurable in terms of profit and
its relation with other elements that can directly influence the profit. No doubt, profit and
profitability are closely related and mutually interdependent, yet they are two different
concepts. "The accounting concept of profit measures what have been accumulated, the
analytical concept of profitability is concerned with future accumulation of wealth. Profit of
an enterprise, reports about the financial and operational efficiency of the business. Whereas,
profitability interprets the term profit in relation to other elements likely to affect these profits
in order to help in decision-making. Profit is regarded as an absolute connotation as against
profitability, which is regarded as a relative concept. Where profit is the residual income left
after meeting all manufacturing, administrative expenses; profitability is the profit making
ability of an enterprise. The profit figure indicates the amount of earning of a business during
a special period. While, profitability denotes whether these profits are constant or improved
or deteriorated, how and to what extent they can be improved. profit in two separate business
concerns may be identical, yet, at many times, it usually happens that their profitability varies
when measured in terms of size of investment* It has been aptly remarked that the role
played by profits and profitability in a business enterprises is identical to the function carried
out by blood and pulse in the human body. Profitability is the ability to earn profit from all
the activities of an enterprise. It indicates how well management of an enterprise generates
earnings by using the resources at its disposal. In the other words the ability to earn profit e.g.
profitability, it is composed of two words profit and ability. The word profit represents the
absolute figure of profit but an absolute figure alone does not give an exact ideas of the
adequacy or otherwise of increase or change in performance as shown in the financial
statement of the enterprise. The word ability reflects the power of an enterprise to earn
profits, it is called earning performance. Earnings are an essential requirement to continue the
business. So we can say that a healthy enterprise is that which has good profitability.
According to hermenson Edward and salmonson profitability is the relationship of income to
some balance sheet measure which indicates the relative ability to earn income on assets


1.Accounting Profitability Profitability is a measure of evaluating the overall efficiency of
the business. The best possible course for evaluation of business efficiency may be inputoutput analysis. Profitability can be measured by relating output as a proportion of input or
matching it with the results of other firms of the same industry or results attained in the
different periods of operations. Profitability of a firm can be evaluated by comparing the
amount of capital employed i.e. the input with income earned i.e. the output. This is popularly
known as return on investment or return on capital employed. It is regarded as the overall
profitability ratio and has two components; net profit ratio and turnover ratio. That is: Return
on Investment = Net Profit Ratio x Turnover Ratio Or, Return on Investment =
Operating Profit x Sales
Sales Capital Employed Or, Return on Investment = Operating Profit Capital Employed
This method is increasingly accepted as an indicator of performance and capability. This is
the reason for viewing operational and financial performance in relation to the scale of
resources of funds required in production. That is, "a given amount of profit return should be
evaluated in terms of the percentage profit return on the investment of funds. Moreover, "the
return on capital used depicts the effectiveness of all the operating decisions from the routine
to the critical, made by the management at all levels of the organization from shop foreman to
2. Social Profitability Along with the economic objective of earning profits, a business is
also required to perform a large number of social objectives. Besides providing better quality
of goods and services, it provides big employment opportunities to the people, better
condition of work, fulfill community needs, conserves resources etc. C. Mean Cardiner
rightly observed, "The darkness of avarice has been dispelled by the light of a new kind of
social responsibility. Social objectives may prove profitable as well as expensive lo a
concern. As some objectives aids in enhancing profitability by attracting customers like in
case of providing quality goods. Whilst other may be counteractive such as elimination of
pollution may cost the company and reduce its profitability, but it creates social profitability.
In other words of Earnest Dale, these social objectives "appear lo urge the executive to
assume an infinitely broad-gauge burden of responsibilities to all the various public with
whom he clears. That makes it an obligation on the part of the company to disclose its

financial, marketing, personnel and social objectives in a simple and concise form to all the
members of the concern so that they can judge the influence of these objectives on their jobs.
3. Value Added Profitability Wealth generation is essential for every enterprise. Value added
profitability indicates the wealth generated (net value earned) as a result of manufacturing
process during a specified period. Wealth generation is the very essence for survival or
growth of a business. An enterprise may survive without making profit but would cease to do
so without adding value. "The enterprise, not making profit, is bound to become sick but not
adding value may cause its death over a period of lime."
Profit forms a part of value added. Thus, value added is a broader concept. "Value added at
particular level of operating capacity and claims should be determined as value added can
expose the efficiency and inefficiency of a business." The concept of value added can be
related to the concept of social profitability of an enterprise. The investment of an enterprise
comprises of the investment of shareholders, debenture holders, creditors, financial
institutions etc.If an enterprise fails to generate growth or add anything as value added, it
would simply mean that the enterprise is misusing public funds. This concept represents the
wealth distribution in a proper manner besides suggesting how productivity can be increased
when reducing the consumption of resources produces same or better outputs.


Operational efficiency is the ability for an organization to execute its tactical plans while
maintaining a healthy balance between cost and productivity. In other words, it's your ability
to get things done without costing the company an arm and a leg.
Typically, this is affected by the productivity of the organization which is measured by
examining the amount of output (product or service) for a given amount of input (assets,
employee work hours, etc.) In order to increase operational efficiency, you strive to increase
the output without a change in input of a similar order of magnitude. Typically, this is done in
one of two ways:
1. Change the underlying processes to eliminate unnecessary steps. This is the aim of Six
Sigma and other process oriented frameworks.
2. Add capabilities to the underlying processes that increase output without increasing input,
esp. using IT assets such as SAP,, etc.
It is nearly impossible to increase output without affecting the input requirements, so one
must realize that you are simply trying to get a higher ratio of output:input than simply higher






Research Type: Exploratory Research
EXPLANATION: The study was regarding Profitability and operational efficiency of HDFC
Bank Limited and comparative analysis between others Bank.
Sample Design: A sample design is a definite plan for obtaining a sample for a given population.
It refers to a techniques or procedure adopted in selecting items for the sample.
Sampling: Further, the design that has been adopted for the study of the given topic is
Profitability and operational efficiency of HDFC Bank Limited.
Tools and techniques for Data Collection

Primary Data: - The researchers collected primary data during the course of research
period with the help of the questionnaire that was designed for the bank employee to
collect the information that was required to carry out the research.


Secondary Data: - Secondary data was collected from books, articles, Internet and
previous research papers that had been conducted by the company representatives and

Tools and techniques of Analysis

Simple statistical tools and techniques like average, ratios, pie charts, tables and graphs analysis
method are used to analyze the data.


After literature survey researcher should state in clear terms the working
hypothesis or hypothesis. As such the manner in which research hypothesis are
developed is particularly important s i n c e t h e y p r o v i d e t h e f o c a l p o i n t f o r
r e s e a r c h . T h e d e v e l o p m e n t o f working hypothesis plays an important role; it
should be very specific and limited to the piece of research in hand because it has to be
tested. It also indicates the type of data required and the type of methods of data
analysis to be used. How does one go about developing working hypothesis? The answer is
by using the following approaches.

Discussion with colleagues and experts about the problem, its origin and
objectives in seeking a solution.
Examination of data and records, if available, concerning the problem for
possible trends, particularities and other clues.
Exploratory personal investigation which involves original field
interview on a limited scale with interested parties and individuals with a
view to secure greater insight in to the practical aspects of the problem.

Hypothesis testing
After analyzing the data as stated above the researcher is in a position to test the
hypothesis, i f a n y h e h a d f o r m u l a t e d e a r l i e r . D o t h e f a c t s s u p p o r t t h e
h y p o t h e s i s o r t h e y h a p p e n t o b e contrary? This is the usual question which
should be answered while testing hypothesis. Various t e s t s s u c h a s C h i square test, t-test, and f-test have been developed for the purpose.
T h e hypothesis may be tested by using one or more of such tests.

The research model is exploratory till identification of services quality parameters. Later
it becomes descriptive when it comes to evaluating customer perception of service
quality of the banks.
Descriptive research, also known as statistical research, describes data and characteristics
about answer the questions who, what, where and how.
Although the data describes is factual, accurate and systematic, the research cannot
describe what caused a situation. Thus descriptive research cannot be used to create a
casual relationship, where one variable affects another. In other words, descriptive
research can be said to have a low requirements for internal validity.
The descriptive is used for frequencies, averages and other statistical calculations. Often
the best approach. Prior to wriring descriptive research, is to conduct a survey
investigation. Qualitative research often has to aim of description and researchers may
follow-up with examination of why the observation exits and what the implications of
the findings are.

not be an indicator of future performance.

business of HDFC Bank Ltd.
6. It is very difficult to analysis and interpretation with the others bank like AXIS bank Ltd. because
every bank should follow theire own policy and their own methodology.

After conducting the project on profitibility and operational efficiency of HDFC Bank Ltd., it is
found that there is a huge possibility for the bank to enhance there business. The Bank has reported
another successful performance, underpinned by healthy growth of both business and revenues. The
Bank continue to have a fairly well-diversified customer base that spans both the retail and
corporate banking space. In addition to creating infrastructural capabilities for the future. The bank
have launched several other initiatives to fulfill product and service needs of our customers
including the launch of an online-broking portal through our wholly-owned subsidiary. The
infrastructure business size has grown well, in line with our expectations and this augurs well for
the future, infrastructure being critical to the countrys growth.
The economic outlook for the country continues to be promising despite concerns around rising
inflation. I believe the Bank is truly well-positioned to capitalize on emerging opportunities across
the economy including infrastructure, SME, retail banking and capital markets and will, therefore,
continue to deliver value to its shareholders.
Banks network of over 2,500 branches and more than 8,900 ATMs has spread across the length and
breadth of the country. Over 70% of HDFC Bank branches are now outside metro areas.
Banking services through mobile phones was delivered to both smartphone as well as basic handset
users. The Bank launched Mobile Banking, enabling customers to use their internet banking facility
on their handset without compromising security.
Understanding customers across multiple segments and meeting their varied financial needs
efficiently is at the heart of what HDFC Bank do. The focus, however, will always be on helping
them meet their goals and realise their aspirations. Because, Bank believe that success in banking is
not just about providing great financial products and services; its about making a difference ... and
empowering lives.

In addition to providing various products and services to the financially excluded, the Bank believes

that imparting education and training to these target segments is equally essential to ensure
transparency and create awareness. To this effect the Bank has put in place various training
programs, these are conducted by Bank staff in local languages and cover not only the customers
but also various intermediaries such as the Banks business correspondents. Through these
programs the Bank provides credit counseling and information on parameters like savings habit,
better utilization of savings, features of savings products, credit utilization, asset creation,
insurance, income generation program etc. During the financial year ended March 31, 2012, over
5,400 financial awareness programs covering over 1,40,000 households were conducted. The bank
also facilitates need based capacity building and market place for the customers with the objective
of sustaining their livelihood in holistic manner.
The financial performance of HDFC Bank during the financial year ended March 31, 2012
remained healthy with total net revenues (net interest income plus other income) increasing by
