1.2. LITERATURE REVIEW
The survey of related literature covers many studies that were done here.This study covers some of them as follows:
Singh, J. P. , Seth, M. (2017)Conduced study in An Inclusive Study on Capital Adequacy performance of Selected Public Sector and Private Sector Banks in India. For the purpose of comparing capital adequacy , they have selected samples of four public and four private sector banks as per market capitalization by applying CAMEL analysis technique. Only one parameter Capital Adequacy of CAMEL has been selected for research from the Capital Adequacy, Asset Quality, Management Quality, Earning Quality and Liquidity. The data of the sample banks for a period of 2006-2015 have been collected from the annual reportsof the banks. Through this model, it is highlighted that the position of the banks under study is sound and reasonable so far as their capital adequacy is concerned.

Jaiswal, A., Jain, C. (2016)The study is an attempt to analyze the financial performance of SBI and ICICI banks. The State Bank of India, popularly known as SBI is one of the leading bank of public sector in India. SBI has 14 Local Head Offices and 57 Zonal Offices located at important cities throughout the country. ICICI bank is the second largest, leading bank of private sector in India. The Bank has 2,533 branches and 6,800 ATMs inIndia. The study is descriptive and analytical in nature. The collected data was secondary in nature and collected from various reportsissued by these banksthrough internet. The comparison of financial performance of these two banks was made on the basis of ratio analysis. The results indicated that the SBI is performing well and financially sound than ICICI Bank. Also the market position of SBI is better than ICICI in terms to earning per share, price ratio per share and dividend payout ratio, but on the other hand ICICI bank is performing well in terms of NPA and provision for NPA in comparison of SBI bank.

Prakash, P.,Sundararajan, S. (2016) This quantitative analytical research was intended to analyze the Indian banking industry in the view of its feasibility as a venture option. A detailed analysis of the Indian banking industry is covered in high opinion of the past growth and performance. The fundamental analysis is done which analyzes the economy in the broader intelligence. The technical analysis is also finished for the stocks using some technical indicators. For the study ICICI bank has been chosen. The research is based on the secondary data and the research design is also analytical in nature as it deals with facts and figures. The tools used for the study are the Ratio Analysis, Beta Analysis (?), Relative Strength Index (RSI) and Rate of Change (ROC). The suggestion to ICICI Bank is the calculated value of ROC and RSI shows more buying opportunity than the selling opportunity.So the investor should buy the shares as the price may increase in the future. Based on the analysis the future price directions are determined and recommendations are given to make the research meaningful. The conclusion is that knowledge of the stock market is the key to success and emphasis should be on managing trading risk while the fundamental and technical analysis can help the investors to control them. So the fundamental ; technical analysis gives clue to buy/sell a stock with adequate justification.

Srinivasan, P.,Saminathan, Y. P. (2016) In the present study, an attempt has been made to rank the various commercial banks operating in India.

Sneha S. S., (2015)conducted study inAnalyzing Financial Strength of Public and Private Sector Banks: A CAMEL Approach.The aims were an attempt to evaluate the performance & financial soundness of various public & private sector banks using CAMEL approach. The period of study covered a period from2010-13. Researcher selected Sample a) Public Banks 1) Bank of Baroda2) IDBI Bank3) PNB Bank b) Private Banks: 1) Axis Ban 2) ICICI Bank 3) HDFC Bank.

Most of these banks, including HDFC, ICICI, IDBI, lie in a similar rank region. However, these banks’ assets etc. vary a great deal and they cannot be judged solely based on the absolute values of the CAMEL ratios. Looking at the trend, we can say that private banks are growing at a faster pace than public sector banks.

Chandran, D., Francis, P. (2014) In this context, the present study has attempted to analyze the relationship between inflation rate and prime lending rate in India. The study was mainly limited to the prime lending rates of SBI and ICICI Bank. The time period of the study is from 2004 to 2011. For the purpose of analysis, the inflation rate was compared with the prime lending rates of SBI and ICICI Bank with the help of correlation, regression, and ANOVA tools. The analysis leads to the finding that for most of the years, inflation and prime lending rates of the 2 banks were negatively correlated. However, after testing the fit of the regression line, a conclusion arrived at that there was no significant relationship between inflation rates and SBAR; whereas, there was a significant relationship between inflation rates and IBAR. Thus, the study tries to provide necessary guidance regarding the relationship between the inflation rates and the prime lending rates.

Parmar, R. (2014)Inthis paper an attempt has been made to study the trend of Total advances,Net profit, Gross NPA,Net NPA of SBI and ICICI Bank.During last three years total advances and net profit has shown growing trendin both banks but compared to SBI,NPA in ICICI bank has shown downward trend because of effective NPA management.It also highlights the relationship between Net Profit and Net NPA, while SBI has shown positive relationship between Net Profit and Net NPA,negative relationship has been found in ICICI between Net Profit and Net NPA.

Willful defaults, improper processing of loan proposals, poor monitoring and so on are the causes for RajeshwariParmar

Biswal, B. P., Gopalakrishna, R. (2014) This paper examines the possible determinants and their effects on banking profitability as estimated by Net Interest Margin. Using secondary data from 2008-13, the study classifies banks operating in India under high CD ratio and low CD ratio. CD ratio represents the proportion of loan asset created from deposits. An Incremental Credit Deposit Ratio (ICDR) going beyond 100%, for a prolonged period, is a cause for concern to Central Bank, banking system, and other market participants as these are the first signs of pressure on resources and capital adequacy. Savers with the banking system are seeking alternative investment avenues for real positive returns. The study tries to analyze if the NIM, ICDR and Cost of Funds of banks with high and low CD ratio vary significantly. The results show that determinants of bank profitability have varied impact for banks under high CD ratio and low CD ratio categories.

Neha Rani, Dinesh Gaba, (2014)conducted study in Analysis of Profitability and Efficiency : A Comparison of HDFC and ICICIThe objectives were: To study the Income and Expenditure pattern of ICICI bank and HDFC bank in India and; To analyze the profitability performance of ICICI and HDFCbank on the basis of net profit. Population and sampling were ICICI and HDFC. This study covers a period of seven years from 2006-07 to 2012-13 Theyfound That the average growth rate of total income is higher in HDFC bank than that of ICICI bank. The average growth rate is 34% in HDFC and 16.6% in ICICI bank.
And the average growth rate of total expenditure in HDFC bank is 25.2% which is higher than the ICICI bank which is 16.42%. Also, average growth rate of net profit is higher in HDFC bank than that of ICICI bank. The average growth rate of net profit is 34% in HDFC bank and 19.4% in ICICI bank. Hence it is concluded that the total performance and efficiency of HDFC bank is better than that of ICICI bank.

Gupta, Shikha (2014 )conduct study inAn Empirical Study Of Financial Performance Of ICICI Bank- A comparative Analysis.The objectives were To know the growth rate of the company in terms of turnover, share capital, PAT, net worth, nets assets and investments during the study period; To assess the profitability; To assess short and long-term solvency; To judge the utilization of its resources period of the study. This study covers a period of 2009-10 to 2013-14 Researcher found that the liquidity position of the bank is not good. The current ratio is below 1 (current liabilities exceed current assets).
– The DER is quite high viz. worrisome, as it indicates a precarious amount of leverage. To address this concern, bank can also analyze the firm’s interest coverage ratio, which is the company’s operating income divided by debt service payments. A high operating income will allow even a debt-burdened firm to meets its obligations.
– A consistent improvement in the EPS figure year after year from 36.10 to 84.94 is the indication of continuous improvement in the earning power of the bank. This increasing EPS is the sign of higher earnings, strong financial position and, therefore, a reliable firm to invest money.
– Asset turnover ratio should be looked at together with the company’s financing mix and its profit margin for a better analysis. A lower turnover ratio means that the company is not using its assets optimally. Total asset turnover ratio is a key driver of return on equity which is quite constant.
– There should be a steady stream of sustainable dividends from a company, the dividend payout ratio analysis is important. A consistent trend in this ratio is usually more important than a high or low ratio. Bank has fallen a percentage each year for the last five years might indicate that the company can no longer afford to pay such high dividends. This could be an indication of poor operating performance.The researcher concludes that the bank has to take an appropriate measure to keep current ration and Quick ratio on par with the norms. The NPAs of the ICICI bank is more than one per cent, hence should control NPAs otherwise it affects the asset quality in long run. Proper control over leverage should be taken in order to magnify DP ratio. The spread of theICICI bank should becontroled otherwise the income of the bank is eaten away by the interest expenses in the long-run. The Earning per share is however long standing.

Nagarkar, J., J., (2014)conducted paper in analysis of financial performance of banks in India.The aims of thispaper was an attempt to analyze performance of five major public, private and foreign sector banks with principle component analysis on the financial parameters. The weights are assigned on the basis of importance of the parameters on financials Populations were (Public, Private and Foreign Banks)and the Sampling were First 5 banks from each category on the basis of total funds. The banks considered for the study are SBI, PNB, BOB, BOI, Canara bank from Public sector banks. ICICI, HDFC, AXIS, DCB and IndusInd Bank from private sector banks. CITI, SCB, HSBC, DBS and Deutsche bank from foreign sector banks, : This study covers a period from 2003 to 2013.Researcher found that Commercial banks depend on deposits received from all types of depositors. Achieving and maintaining faith of depositors is a key to bank’s success. Commercial banks need to check credit appraisal process to reduce the non-performing assets. It has been seen that couple of banks depend on borrowing for giving advances. Banks are better if they depend on deposit money rather than borrowed money for disbursing advances. It was seen that though the overall deposits of commercial banks have gone down. The credit growth has slowed down. This is not reflected in the banks analyzed for the study. This is because large national level banks are able to withstand business cycles better than regional banks. The objective of government to create bigger national level banks by merging smaller banks is justified by this study.

Chandani, A., Mehta, M., Chandrasekaran, K. B. (2014)conducted study inA Working Paper on the Impact of Gender of Leader on theFinancial Performance of the Bank: A Case of ICICI Bank.The objectives were to compute the CAMEL score of ICICI bank led by man and woman , then To analyse the difference in the CAMEL score of ICICI banks.This study covers the years starting from 2005-2006 till 2012-2013 .They were selected a case of ICICI banks.Researcher found that though the Indian society gave due importance to the women in the ancient and medieval period, the Indian women had risen to the position which were considered to be highest and prime. Due to the attack on the Indian culture by the invaders from various part of the globe, the importance seems to be losing of late. In Post-independence, the things have transformed and women again started to regain the position in the society. The government of India has also been trying, through various programmes and policies, to uplift the position of women in the society. The overall education system also changed and the perspectives of the parents also changed towards the girl and they also started giving equal importance and started encouraging them for education which resulted in girl going for the job. During the 1990 when the government started the liberalization policy and this resulted in the flow of jobs and in the increasing number of women going for the job and taking career seriously and to join hands in the family earning.
Though the women entered the traditional job such as teaching, nursing but nevertheless there were women who were venturing into non-traditional jobs such as aviation, petroleum and banking. These sectors were considering the play area of the muscle and entry of the woman was more or less restricted. The women broke that myth and took up the jobs and moved to a sector called banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI). The women climbed the ladder to enter the elite class of Board of Directors and finally to become the CEO of the organization.
This paper, with the help of a tool called CAMEL, has tried to compare the CAMEL score of the bank between two periods where man was CEO and woman is CEO to draw the meaningful conclusion. The bank is currently headed by women and the women leadership started approximately in April 2009.
The CAMEL score of these leaders are calculated using different ratios under five heads, as defined by the word CAMEL, and the proper weight is given to all the ratios according to their importance.
Table 3: CAMEL score of ICICI Bank
2005-06 2006-07 2007-08 2008-09 2009-10 2010-11 2011-12 2012-13
36.02 42.33 37.68 39.77 38.23 37.49 40.23 40
The final CAMEL score was arrived which showed that the score has gone down since woman became CEO but it started gaining again though it did not touch the highest point of 42.33 which was during the regime of man CEO.
The CAMEL score was 40.23 in the year 2011-12 and 40 in the recent year, which is good score comparing the fact that it was less than 40 during the period of man CEO barring year 2006-07.
It is credible that the woman has come to a level where she is not less than man and has shown the CAMEL score which is comparable to the man CEO. The paper has tried to explore whether woman is able to perform as good as man or not and the tool used for measuring the financial performance was CAMEL score. It has been seen that the CAMEL score has not shown a remarkable jump per se, but the score is slightly bettered which can help the researchers to conclude that the women are not less than man and able to perform as efficiently as man.

Ayyappan, S., Sivaraman, K., ;Sakthivadivel, M. M., (2014)conducted a study on the financial performance analysis of selected BSE listed private sector banks in india.Objectives were to calculate the trend, to predict the future financial position of selected financial parameters of selected private sector banks in India .(AXIS , DHFC , ICICI) .The period of study covered a period from 2004 to 2013
The conclusion shows that indian banking system has under gone a drastic change since liberalization. With the increasing levels of globalization, liberalisation, privatisation and new reforms of the indian banking sector, competition will intensify further and the new generation private sector bank has best used the technology and manpower in effective and efficient way. these have made them attract more customers and made them grow faster and stronger. the study reveals that the private banking sector has very sound financial position especially in terms of networth , reserves and deposit and they contribute very much to the overall development of economy.

Kumar, J., Selvan T. R. (2014)conducted study in Capital Adequacy Determinants and Profitability of Selected Indian Commercial Banks .The objectives of the study were to find the impact of Capital Adequacy method and To evaluate the relative profitability of selected Indian commercial banks. Commercial Banks BOB, ICICI,PNB,BOI,CB, HDFC, AXIS.Period of studycovered a period of eight years, that is, from 2009-2010 to 2013-2014.TheTheconclusion shows that In the capital adequacy model that ICICI Bank has the most favored capital adequacy ratio compared to other various banks. All the commercial banks maintained the RBI requirements norms of 10%. The debt equity ratio is high; the banking institution highly levered from other firms and fund coming from deposits. The higher ratio indicates less protection for the creditors and depositors in the banking system. The Bank of India and Bank of Baroda are most expanding business. The advances to Assets the State Bank of India is better profitability satisfactory. All the banks had more than 55% of their investment as Government securities. The ICICI bank lowest ratio implies the major part of its funds was diverted. The earning capacity method, Spread to Total Assets the HDFC Bank higher spread indicates better earning capacity of the bank. The Net Profit to Average Assets the HDFC Bank higher ratio shows the earnings capacity of the assets and Canara Bank the inefficient and incompetent performance of the bank. All the banks performance is satisfactory in their Interest Income to Total Income. The Non-Interest Income to Total Income Axis Bank the higher percentage ratio. It helps to determine the ability of the bank to earn revenue from other than the core activities of banks. We conclude that the commercial banks in India overall are performing well.

This shows that ICICI Bank has created more loan assets from its deposits as compared to SBI. It is also revealed that the ratio of operating funds to the total funds of ICICI was varied from 1.94 percent to 1.76 percent. It was 1.58 percent in 2009-10; lowest among five years again it increased to 1.72 percent in 2010-11. But the operating funds ratio in case of SBI has increased over the five years. It was at its lowest in 2008-09 (1.86%), after that it has shown almost increment in operating funds. The ratio of net profits to total funds of ICICI was varied from 0.96 percent to 1.62 percent. It increased to 1.62 percent from 0.96 percent in 2008-09. But the net profit in case of SBI has decreased to 0.73 percent in 2010-11 from 1.08 percent in 2008-09; it further increases to 0.97 percent in 2012-13. However, the net profit margin was higher in ICICI (1.62%) as compared to SBI (0.97%) during the period of study. Thus, the ICICI has shown comparatively lower operational expenses than SBI. The Cash Deposit Ratio in ICICI and SBI was highest in 2010-11. In both SBI ;ICICI the cash deposit ratio has decreased in period 2011-13. Return on Equity in SBI bank has decreased to 12.62% in year 2010-11 from 17.05% in 2008-09 while in ICICI bank ROE has continuously increased in last five years ranges from 7.83% to 13.1%. In SBI bank ROE shows a growth sign in the years 2011-13 but it’s slower in comparison to ICICI bank’s ROE. Hence it depicts that ICICI bank has been successful in generating returns on the shareholders’ capital more than SBI bank. Hence, on the basis of the above study or analysis ICICI bank is performing well in comparison to SBI.

Balasubramaniam, C. S. (2012)conducted study in non performing assets and profitability of commercial banks in india: assessment and emerging issues.The Objectives of this paper attempts to analyze the trend of the NPA of the banks in recent decade since 2000. Population and sampling ; COMMERCIAL BANKS .This study covers a period of the recent decade since 2000. Researcher found that:
1. The Indian Banks have overall demonstrated a trend of continued good performance and profitability despite rising interest rates, increase in operating costs and the spillover effects of recent global financial crisis .This is reflected in higher credit growth deposit record, better return on assets, and return on equities. (ROE) The capital position improved significantly as the banks were able to mobilize substantial funds.
2. The level of NPAs is high with all banks currently and the banks would be expected to bring down their NPA. This can be achieved by good credit appraisal procedures, effective internal control systems along with their efforts to improve asset quality in their balance sheets.
3. However, maintaining profitability is a challenge to commercial banks especially in a highly competitive era and opening up of banking business to NBFC and foreign banks in general. This assumes significance in a period of rising interest rates and operating costs of borrowers in general.
4. Banks would make efforts to mobilise funds in order to comply with provisioning norms and capital adequacy requirements while meeting Basel III standards which will be brought in by RBI shortly. However, the Capital requirements would be large considering the varied structure of banks and financial institutions operating in the economy and their NPA levels. The capital market environment currently prevailing in the economy would pose problems for the capital mobilization by the banks.
5. Finally , it is significant to note that new and private sector banks led by ICICI Bank and HDFC Bank , with their high capital adequacy ratios, enhanced proportion of common equity and better IT and other modern financial skills of the personnel, are well placed to comply with Basel III norms in general. PSU banks although dominant banks in the Indian financial system may take more time and face challenges in following the Basel III guidelines in the ensuing years.

Reddy Sriharsha K, (2012)conducted study inrelative performance of commercial banks in India using camel approach.The Aim of the study was to evaluate relative performance of banks in India using CAMEL approach. Population and sampling was COMMERCIAL BANKS This study covers a period after first phase of reforms (i.e., 1999) and after second phase of reforms (i.e., 2009)1. Researcher found that CAMEL approach is significant tool to assess the relative financial strength of a bank and to suggest necessary measures to improve weaknesses of a bank. In India, RBI adopted this approach in 1996 followed on the recommendations of Padmanabham Working Group (1995) committee. In the present study, modified version of CAMEL ranking approach is used to assess relative positions of commercial banks. It is found that during the year 2009 the top three performing banks in all the categories of CAMEL are Mashreq Bank, China Trust Commercial Bank and Bank of Ceylon because of high capital adequacy, and liquidity. The worst three performers are American Exprss Bank, Development Credit Bank and Catholic Syriyan Bank during the study period because of low capital adequacy, low assets and earnings quality and poor management quality. Further, Mashreq Bank, Indian Bank, Oman International Bank,Punjab & Sind Bank,Abu Dhabi Bank, United Bank of India, Ratnakar Bank, China Trust Commercial Bank, Uco Bank are very progressive banks with high Progress Ratios during 1999- 2009. UTI Bank, Jammu & Kashmir Bank, IndusInd Bank, Development Credit Bank ,American Express Bank, Sonali Bank are Very bad Progressive banks with low Progress Ratios during 1999-2009 . Public sector banks have significantly improved indicating positive impact of the reforms in liberalizing interest rates, rationalizing directed credit and Investments and increasing competition.
