Since inception in the year 1955 from the Imperial Bank of India to the State Bank of India, the Bank enjoys supremacy in contributing credit to all sectors of the economy thereby participating prominently in the economic development. The Bank’s Loan policy for domestic lending aims at a profit with growth based on proper credit risk analysis and adequate system and control. The Bank has come out with optimal exposure levels to various categories of borrowers as per prudential exposure norms prescribed by RBI. As a measure for effective implementation of achieving expected growth in personal segment portfolio, Business Process Re-Engineering (BPR) was formulated by the Bank. The main objectives of BPR were to enhance the customer service level. One of the main parts of this BPR initiative is the formation of Retail Assets Central Processing Centre called by RACPC which covers Personal Segment Loans namely Housing, Education, Car, Mortgager, Personal and Reverse Mortgage loans. RACPC, Trivandrum centre was opened on 20th May 2006 headed by the Assistant General Manager. In the early stages, it was looking into the migration.

Under the COVID 19 situation of pandemic issues, our economy passes through a very bad situation with chronic distortions. To support and ensure achievement of expected growth, Banking sector deposits and credit are poised to grow in Tandem Bank credit is considered to be the key factor in economic growth and development in all nations and India is not an exception. It is generally agreed that countries with efficient credit system grow faster while inefficient credit system leads to Bank failure. The study of Bank Credit is presently very relevant as Banking Industry is all set to support the nation in achieving expected growth in national income. State Bank still stands as the best and trustable source of credit both for the people and of the nation. The Bank has come out with optimal exposure levels to various categories of borrowers as per prudential exposure norms prescribed by RBI. An ever-growing middle-class population and rising income levels, combined with the demographic change of smaller household sizes have boosted demand for retail credit. There may exist meaningful inter-linkages among economic indicators and personal finance growth such that the variation in retail credit at the macro level can be explained. Banks’ credit policies and processes are prepared with the broad risk management objective and the oversight of the credit policy remains with the senior management.
One of the main parts of this BPR initiative is the formation of Retail Assets Central Processing Centre called by RACPC which covers Personal Segment Loans namely Housing, Education, Car, Mortgager, Personal and Reverse Mortgage loans the loan applications are canvassed by the Linked Branches and Marketing teams and forwarded to this Centre for scrutiny and sanction. The loan applications are processed and sanctioned at RACPC. Every month on average it sanctions more than 400 proposals approximately amounting to Rs. 400 corers several strategies have been implemented by the Centre since inception to improve the business level and to achieve the expected growth in business. The number of linked Branches increase day by day as new Branches are getting opened at all major centres to effectively cater to the requirements of existing and new customers. The centre is considered to be one of the best in the country in terms of processing, sanction, and maintenance of loans, and with this rapid development and expansion proposed, the Centre is expected to reach a level of 6320 corers by the end of 2020. In this project paper, the activities by the Centre, formalities, requirements for retail credit, workflow, its achievements, future expectations and proposed expansions are Looked into and studied in detail to have a clear insight into this very new initiative by SB in increasing its exposure to retail lending thereby making its due contribution to the economy and in turn to nation-building

- For outright purchases interim security is insisted upon till the time the documents relating to the property/ house/flat purchased are received by the Bank and equitable mortgage created thereon.
- But where there are tie-up arrangements especially in the case-of builders Constructing villas and flats, no interim security is insisted; instead a tripartite Agreement between the Banks. Builder and purchaser serves the purpose’ State bank continues to be no 1 home loan players in terms of size of the individual home loan portfolio amongst all players in the home loan market and RACPC, Trivandrum plays an important role for home loan finance in & around Trivandrum contributing substantially to the achievement of maximum market share by the bank in home loans in Kerala.

Loans generally granted to staff include housing loans, vehicle loans, and, computer Loans, consumer loans and personal loans. No target is set for staff loans and loan under this category carries special interest rates, applicable to staff member so which are generally lower or equal to the rates offered by the Bank to retail borrowers. The main reason is that large numbers of officers and staff were availed by retired employees. Upper limits for various loans including housing loans underwent considerable changes resulting in the increase in the quantum of loans which the employees utilized for various needs. This resulted in the increase in levels even though the number declined in absolute term recruited and the loans, availed by the new recruits surpassed the closure of Loan.
