  8. Dear David,
    Many thanks for the info collated.Numbers always do not potray the truth.What’s important is the Customer satisfaction- be it a savings bank holder or an SME. In India from my experience large Industrial houses get what they want and on their terms from the Banks(both Private and Public Sector)at the cost of small and medium industrialists/customers of the Bank.Some of the so called Leading Public Sector Banks are full of incompetent and arrogant officers.
