In-house Skill Development

December 4, 2022 In-house skill development This refers to the report "RBI official cautions banks against outsourcing core activities" (The Hindu Business Line, December 4). The observations made by ED Chaudhary are primarily about fintech services but one is tempted to extend the implications of the caution to the present trend to short-circuit need for in-house skill development and save costs on maintaining regular staff on the rolls of institutions. There's nothing wrong in thinking on the above lines. But in the long term, in the interest of better performance and data security for institutions in the financial sector, including RBI, balance of convenience would be to develop and maintain in-house talent. Initially in several new and developing technology-intensive areas, dependence on external agencies can be unavoidable. But even then, efforts should be to limit external involvement to the minimum period. M G Warrier Mumbai

Branding and marketing India

Branding and marketing India M G Warrier Till recently, world ignored India, not because the country was poor or our literacy level was low compared to the developed world. We didn't pay enough attention to branding and marketing our products and services. We are yet to exploit the tourism potential our heritage locations, hill stations, places of worship, lakes and gardens, long beaches, wildlife sanctuaries and other tourist places provide. To give just one example, some years ago, one district collector in Wayanad (Kerala) could get a feel of the potential some three or four attractive tourist spots in the district and improved the environment there. The results were excellent. Even before the focus on environment and pollution raised to the present level, believe me, those who were climbing up the mountain to see the Edakkal Caves had to deposit an amount at the base for carrying a bisleri bottle with them. The deposit would be refunded on showing the bottle while returning

SBI Conclave 2022 : Credit Deposit Ratio

November 24, 2022 Credit-deposit ratio This refers to the report "Govt spending, excess SLR to support loan growth : SBI chief" (The Hindu Business Line, November 24). India is one of the first developing countries to recognise the potential of the banking system in playing a proactive role in nation building. SBI chief's optimistic revelations about the functioning of the banking system post-pandemic are soothing and comforting. By involving state machinery and non-government organisations in credit planning at every level from State to villages since early 1960's, ensuring adequate credit flow to priority sectors and monitoring Credit-deposit ratios India ensured an even spread of economic growth across geographies. It is unfortunate that, of late, this aspect of the role played by banks in India's economic growth doesn't get the attention it deserves. The signal in the SBI chief's observations that banks can stand where they are even with laggi
