Showcasing banking services

WHAT IS the most happening segment in banking? Anyone who is familiar with the developments in the banking sector would have little difficulty in answering this question.

It is the housing loan segment. Thanks to the fall in interest rates, housing loan has become the buzzword in banking circles these days. They have come to occupy an important place in the scheme of things of all banks. So much so that the schemes and incentives being offered by the bank are elucidated at every given opportunity.

And the customers' meet organised by the State Bank of India's main branch, a few days ago, was no different. Though the meet was expected to discuss issues relating to banking procedures and the like, it was turned into a platform for showcasing the schemes offered by the bank in the housing loan and other segments.

Those who spoke also emphasised that bankers should keep themselves abreast of the latest developments to stay ahead in a competitive environment. There was even a small video show on the savings and deposit schemes and the activities of the bank.

Credit Khazana, SBI Life Insurance and other products of the bank were explained in detail. The Assistant General Manager, SBI, Coimbatore Zone, K. S. Rajan presided.
