                              HISTORY OF BANKING

Banking is nearly as old as civilization. The history of banking could be said to have started with
the appearance of money. The first record of minted metal coins was in Mesopotamia in about
2500B.C. the first European banknotes, which was handwritten appeared in1661, in Sweden.
cheque and printed paper money appeared in the 1700¶s and 1800¶s, with many banks created to
deal with increasing trade.

The history of banking in each country runs in lines with the development of trade and industry, and
with the level of political confidence and stability. The ancient Romans developed an advanced
banking system to serve their vast trade network, which extended throughout Europe, Asia and

Modern banking began in Venice. The word bank comes from the Italian word ³ban co´, meaning
bench, because moneylenders worked on benches in market places. The bank of Venice was
established in 1171 to help the government raise finance for a war.

At the same time, in England merchant started to ask goldsmiths to hold gold and silver in their
safes in return for a fee. Receipts given to the Merchant were sometimes used to buy or sell, with
the metal itself staying under lock and key. The goldsmith realized that they could lend out some of
the gold and silver that they had and charge interest, as not all of the merchants would ask for the
gold and silver back at the same time. Eventually, instead of charging the merchants, the goldsmiths
paid them to deposit their gold and silver.

The bank of England was formed in 1694 to borrow money from the public for the government to
finance the war of Augsburg against France. By 1709, goldsmith were using bank of England notes
of their own receipts.

New technology transformed the banking industry in the 1900¶s round the world, banks merged into
larger and fewer groups and expanded into other country.

                                              Page 10 of 52
In today¶s dynamic world banks are inevitable for the development of a country. Banks play a
pivotal role in enhancing each and every sector. They have helped bring a draw of development on
the world¶s horizon and developing country like India is no exception.

Banks fulfills the role of a financial intermediary. This means that it acts as a vehicle for moving
finance from those who have surplus money to (however temporarily) those who have deficit. In
everyday branch terms the banks channel funds from depositors whose accounts are in credit to
borrowers who are in debit.

Without the intermediary of the banks both their depositors and their borrowers would have to
contact each other directly. This can and does happen of course. This is what has lead to the very
foundation of financial institution like banks.

Before few decades there existed some influential people who used to land money. But a
substantially high rate of interest was charged which made borrowing of money out of the reach of
the majority of the people so there arose a need for a financial intermediate.

The Bank have developed their roles to such an extent that a direct contact between the depositors
and borrowers in now known as disintermediation.

Banking industry has always revolved around the traditional function of taking deposits, money
transfer and making advances. Those three are closely related to each other, the objective being to
lend money, which is the profitable activity of the three. Taking deposits generates funds for lending
and money transfer services are necessary for the attention of deposits. The Bank have introduced
progressively more sophisticated versions of these services and hav diversified introduction in
numerable areas of activity not directly relating to this traditionaltrinity

The banking scenario in India has been changing at fast pace from being just the borrowers and
lenders traditionally, the focus has shifted to more differentiated and customized product/service
provider from regulation to liberalization in the year 1991, from planned economy to market.

Economy, from licensing to integration with Global Economics, the changes have been swift. All
most all the sector operating in the economy was affected and banking sector is no exception to this.
Thus the whole of the banking system in the country has undergone a radical change. Let us see
how banking has evolved in the past 57 years of independence.

After independence in 1947 and proclamation in 1950 the country set about drawing its road map
for the future public ownership of banks was seen inevitable and SBI was created in 1955 to
spearhead the expansion of banking into rural India and speed up the process of magnetization.
Political compulsion¶s brought about nationalization of bank in 1969 and lobbying by bank
employees and their unions added to the list of nationalized banks a few years later.

Slowly the unions grew in strength, while bank management stagnated. The casualty was to the
customer service declined, complaints increased and bank management was unable to item the rot.

In the meantime, technology was becoming a global phenomenon lacking a vision of the future and
the banks erred badly in opposing the technology up gradation of banks. They mistakenly believed
the technology would lead to retrenchment and eventually the marginalization of unions.

The problem faced by the banking industry soon surfaced in their balance sheets. But the prevailing
accounting practices unable banks to dodge the issue.

The rules of the game under which banks operated changed in 1993. Norms or income Recognition,
Assets classification and loan loss provisioning were put in place and capital adequacy ratio become
mandatory. The cumulative impact of all these changes has been on the concept of state ownership
in banks. It is increasingly becoming clear that the state ownership in bank is no longer sustainable.

The amendment of banking regulation act in 1993 saw the entry of new private sector banks and
foreign banks.

HDFC Bank was incorporated in the year of 1994 by Housing Development Finance Corporation

receive an 'in principle' approval from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to set up a bank in the
private sector. The Bank commenced its operations as a Scheduled Commercial Bank in January
1995 with the help of RBI's liberalization policies.

In a milestone transaction in the Indian banking industry, Times Bank Limited (promoted by
Bennett, Coleman & Co. / Times Group) was merged with HDFC Bank Ltd., in 2000. This was the
first merger of two private banks in India. As per the scheme of amalgamation approved by the
shareholders of both banks and the Reserve Bank of India, shareholders of Times Bank received 1
share of HDFC Bank for every 5.75 shares of Times Bank.

In 2008 HDFC Bank acquired Centurian bank of Punjab taking its total branches to more than

1,63,000 crore. The amalgamation added significant value to HDFC Bank in terms of increased

³Human Resource Management function that helps managers recruit, select, train and develop
members for an organization. Obviously, HRM is concerned with the people¶s dimension in

Work force of an Organization is one of the most important inputs of components. It is said that
people are our single most important assets. Because of the unique importance of HUMAN
RESOURCE and its complexity due to ever changing psychology, behavior and attitudes of men
and women at work, in all business concerns, there is one common element. I.e. Human personnel
function, i.e., manpower management function is becoming increasingly specialized. The personnel
function or system can be broadly defined as the management of people at work management of
managers and management of workers. Personnel function is particularly interested in personnel

In a sense, management is personnel administration. Management is the development of people, and
not mere direction of material resources. Human capital is the greatest asset of a business
enterprise. The essential ingredient of management is the leadership an direction of people. Each
manager of people has to be his own personnel man. Personnel management is not something you
really turn over to personnel department staff.
