 Time to Try Electronic Funds Transfer..!
By Ishaan Gera

National Electronic Funds Transfer is one the most used online transfer modes in the banking sector. It can be done via a mobile app or a bank account and requires you to have the account name, number and the IFSC code.


National Electronic Funds Transfer is one the most used online transfer modes in the banking sector. It can be done via a mobile app or a bank account and requires you to have the account name, number and the IFSC code.
BANKING has taken a hit with swathes of people wanting to convert their currency for basic transactions. Though it would take time for things to return to normalcy, there are ways to avoid standing in queues by using online channels of transfers and payments.

In fact, NEFT, IMPS and RTGS modes of payment have been in existence for long now, but they command only a small share of transactions as compared to cash.

The government earlier this year also launched Unified Payments Interface (UPI) to make transfers easier and faster. If you have not used any of these services in the past, now may be a good time to start.

National Electronic Funds Transfer is one the most used online transfer modes in the banking sector. It can be done via a mobile app or a bank account and requires you to have the account name, number and the IFSC code.
Though there is no minimum amount for transfer, the maximum amount that can be transferred is Rs. 10 lakh. Payments are made in hourly batches, leading to some delay in money transfer. There are 12 settlement times between 8 am and 7 pm on weekdays.

Though money transfer usually takes place on the same day, if you have made a transfer after 6 pm or 7 pm then the payment is usually credited on the next day. Banks charge R2.50 plus service tax for transfers up to Rs. 10,000, R5 plus service tax for transfers of above Rs. 10,000 up to Rs. 1 lakh, Rs. 15 plus tax for transfers of above Rs. 1 lakh up to Rs. 2 lakh, etc.

2. RTGS..!

If you are in a bit of a hurry and need to transfer large funds immediately, then Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) may be the best option.

The process of transfer is similar to that of NEFT, but the settlement is made immediately. RTGS is primarily for large fund transfers of Rs. 2 lakh to Rs. 10 lakh.

Though one can schedule an RTGS payment in advance for three working days, the charges are a bit more than NEFT.

RTGS transactions incur a charge of Rs.25 plus service tax for payments up to Rs. 5 lakh and Rs. 50 plus service tax for amounts more than Rs. 5 lakh for retail customers.

3. IMPS..!
Immediate payment service (IMPS) is a 24X7 service launched by the National Payments Council of India. While it allows for real time transfer of funds like RTGS, there is a limit of Rs. 2 lakh for transfers.

The IMPS, besides a payment mechanism like the other two services, also offers the facility of MMID—a seven digit Mobile Money Identifier code which can be generated by SMS or internet banking—and mobile number transfer.
One has to register mobile number along with MMID code for the account to which money is to be transferred. Though charges are left to the discretion of banks, banks charge R5 plus service tax for transfer up to R1 lakh and R15 plus service tax for above Rs 1 lakh.

4. UPI..!
This newly launched service by NPCI is modelled on IMPS platform to provide 24×7 transfer facilities. The transaction limit is just R1 lakh.

One can download an app of any bank and initiate a transfer by using a virtual payment address which is similar to an e-mail address for the account.
The transaction just requires an M-Pin for verification and the fee is similar to that of IMPS.

CBRE Capital Markets establishes itself as No. 1 in India with 50% market share..!

CBRE Capital Markets establishes itself as No. 1 in India with 50% market share..!

-       Commercial Real Estate (CRE) witnessed USD 4.7 billion of investment in 2018. CBRE’s Capital Markets team executed transactions worth over USD 2 billion
-       Mumbai dominated the overall industry with over 40% share of transactions

CBRE South Asia Pvt. Ltd, India’s leading real estate consulting firm today announced details of the business volume generated by its Capital Markets team and established itself as the number one team in its domain with a 50% market share.

With a comprehensive suite of services such as Capital Raising, Land Services including land sales, joint developments and development management agreements; Core Asset Sales, HNI and Family Office Advisory and Advisory to Fund Portfolios, the Capital Markets team helped its clients through a range of transactions such as Investment Sales, Foreign Investment (FDI), Structured Debt, Construction Financing and LRDs, Equity Placement, Core Asset Sales, etc.

Of a total investment of USD 4.7 billion in Commercial Real Estate (CRE) in 2018, transactions worth over USD 2 billion were executed by CBRE’s Capital Markets team.

Commenting on this achievement Mr. Anshuman Magazine, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (India, South-East Asia, Middle East and Africa), CBRE said, “The Capital Markets team has successfully positioned itself as an integrated capital solutions provider- offering Capital Raising, Land, HNI Advisory and Core Office Acquisition/Divestment Services. The business reached an all-time high in 2018 and reinforced its number one position for Land and Capital Markets for the third consecutive year in India.”

Talking about the overall performance of Capital Markets in 2018, Gaurav Kumar, MD & Co-Head Capital Markets, CBRE said, “The previous year also marked our expansion in key geographies in the country. We successfully executed some key transactions which helped us strengthen CBRE’s leadership position in this domain.”      
The Capital Markets team has significantly contributed to the industry’s growth by arranging crucial capital requirements and has successfully positioned itself as a one-stop solution for all capital and investment needs of the commercial real estate industry.

“2018 was a very successful year for CBRE; our growth has maintained a consistent positive trend and Capital Markets has significantly contributed towards it. We foresee strong growth in the coming years as well,” said Nikhil Bhatia, MD & Co-Head Capital Markets, CBRE.

The Capital Markets team in 2018 advised on some marquee real estate investment advisory deals in India and succeeded in maintaining its number one position.

Speaking about the performance of the real estate industry in the country, Bhatia said, “Investment momentum for the overall real estate sector is expected to witness an up-tick from previous years. CBRE’s expertise in providing advice, qualitative and quantitative analysis and exceptional execution capabilities for alternative capital solutions for corporate owned and occupied real estate is a push towards these investments.”

Speaking about the expected trends among capital providers in 2019, Kumar said, “The present year is expected to see an increase in institutional equity investments in office and retail developments, boutique transactions in hospitality and sustained activity in land acquisitions and land JDAs and JVs.”

He further added that increasing focus on due diligence in the market will lead to improved loan quality, but may result in rising costs as well.

Some key trends to be witnessed in Capital Markets in 2019:

-       Consolidation amongst NBFCs – The NBFC market in India is currently witnessing an overcrowding situation. In the current situation of cautious funding exposure towards NBFCs, the larger ones are expected to manage their liabilities by tapping public issues, while the smaller ones fill find it a challenge to seek alternate source of funding.

-       Loan Quality to Improve – With RBI being aggressive with cancelling licenses of non-compliant NBFCs (around 4500 NBFCs have had their licenses cancelled till October 2018), it is eventually going to result in a clean-up, ensuring availability of capital for quality assets.

-       Due diligence to come in sharper focus – Investors are expected to be selective in their investment, with core, Grade A assets remaining as favoured investment.

-       Shift towards core assets and LRDs – As fresh disbursements are slowing down and caution looms around new assets and land, assets that are backed by some type of collateral as well as score assetws are likely to be in greater focus. It largely implies that there is likely to be greater focus on LRDs and core assets while financing/refinancing opportunities with existing partners and land deals are expected to be slow.

-       REIT becoming a reality – As the sector gets more organized, HNIs and NRIs investors are realizing that instead of taking on the pain of directly buying, managing and maintaining commercial properties, they can also participate through a REIT.

-       The yield conundrum - On the backdrop of increased demand for the dollar, rising crude oil prices and liquidity issues has resulted in 10-year bond yield breaching the psychological 8 % mark during 2018. On the other hand, prime yield in sectors such as office and retail are also around the 8.0-8.5 % ballpark, owing to marginal growth in rents and increase in capital values.

J&K Bank more than doubles it profit to Rs 465 Cr

J&K Bank more than doubles it profit to Rs 465 Cr

J&K Bank, the state owned premier financial institution reported a 129 % growth in net profit for the Financial Year 2018-19 at 465 Cr as compared to 202 Cr in the previous fiscal. In the March quarter bank has reported a profit of 214.80 Cr as compared to 28.41 Cr in the corresponding quarter of FY 2018.  Buoyed by strong retail credit growth, sale of partial stake in PNB Metlife and resolution of some large NPLs the total income of the bank rose to Rs 8487 crore in the FY 2018-19 as compared to Rs 7116 Cr a year ago.
The results for the FY 2018-19 and Q4 FY 18-19 were announced by the Bank today after Board of Directors of the Bank adopted the audited numbers of the Bank in its meeting held at Bank’s Corporate Headquarters Srinagar. The growth in J&K state credit has been reported at 23% over the last year and net interest income the difference between interest earned on loans and that paid on deposits grew by 42 % in the 4th quarter of the financial year 2018-19.The NIIM of the bank which is an indicator of profitability was calculated at 4.05 for the 4th quarter and on full year basis it improved to 3.84% as compared to 3.65% in the previous fiscal.  
The Chairman & CEO JK Bank while acknowledging the support and guidance of the Board of Directors in navigating the bank in challenging times attributed the turnaround & stellar growth in the top and bottom line of the bank to the unflinching trust of the promoters and customers of the Bank especially from the J&K state. He commended the management team, business heads & operative staff for robust credit growth, management of NPAs, NPA recovery, improvement in Compliance culture etc. despite a challenging environment.  
“Our numbers are unfolding in line with our strategic business plan to direct the focus of our credit expansion in J&K state especially in retail & SME segments. We are continuously gaining market share in J&K besides improving the penetration of credit to hitherto credit starved geographies/segments especially in consumer and housing sectors. If you see our segmental numbers in retail, housing has grown by 79% from 3117 Cr to 5384 Cr, Consumer finance has grown exponentially from 195 Cr to 1978 Cr, Car loans have grown by 37 % from 2000 Cr to 2741 Cr resulting in aggregate retail credit growth of 33%. The Corporate to retail mix of our overall advances is now 43 Corporate  to 57% retail as compared 53 Corporate to 47 Retail a couple of years ago.” announced the Chairman.
“The results also validate our medium term growth strategy which is fanning out as envisioned to achieve   a total business of about 2.50 Lac Cr with a targeted profit of Rs 2000 Cr, NIIM ranging between 3.5-4%, ROA of 1.3%, ROE of 16% and credit cost below 1% at the end of FY 2022. We will carry forward the momentum of the robust business growth of previous fiscal to the current Financial Year and set the tone of exponential growth for strengthening the new paradigm of sustained profitability. I can say confidently that once our provisioning requirements due to ageing of NPAs are over may be in 3-4 quarters, the best in terms of bottom line is yet to come. “added Parvez Ahmed.
Outlining his vision to take the growth and business of the bank to the next level the Chairman informed about the roll out of new Zonal structure at the District level w.e.f. Q2 of the current financial year to dovetail the state governments budget/development plan with the business plan of the bank with a vision of socio economic development of the state. The Bank he added will be targeting to extend its outreach for facilitating the vast majority of rural population of the state including the bottom of the pyramid population, which is dependent on informal channels for their financial needs. This he said will further strengthen the Bank’s low cost CASA franchise, which at 50.7% is one of the best in the banking industry.
“As I have been saying earlier too, we see a lot of unmet demand and potential for increased lending in sectors of SME, Tourism Infrastructure, Agriculture & Allied, Infrastructure (Government Spending), Home Loan, Personal Finance to Govt. Employees, Horticulture, Gold Loans etc which is validated by exponential growth in the past few quarters. Promoting the startups & new entrepreneurs also remains our priority area as we go deeper in the geographies in congruence with the policy support for startups at the state and central government level and we will act as an enabler for the bright youths of our state,” said Parvez Ahmed in the statement issued to the press.
The bank’s total business as on the close of 31st March 2019 touched 1,61,864 Cr comprising of deposits of Rs 89638 Cr and gross advances of Rs 72226 Cr  as compared to 1,42,466 Cr an year ago registering an increase of around 14%. The Bank reported a stable low cost of funds at 4.90% with a CASA contribution of 50.7%. The NPA coverage ratio has seen a minor dip on sequential basis to 64.30 % mainly because of downgrade of the IL&FS and its group companies. As a percentage of total loans, the Gross and Net NPA ratios of the bank improved to 8.97% and 4.89 % as compared to 9.96% and 4.90% a year ago. Notably the Bank recovered NPAs of Rs 2750 Cr during the year besides making provisions of over Rs. 1000 crore for bad & doubtful debts.
Bullets in center:
Ø Eight consecutive quarters of profitability after loss of Rs 1632 Cr in 2017
Ø Total Business Crosses 1,60,000 Cr
Ø Balance sheet size grows beyond 100,000 Cr
Ø Profit growth of 129% over the previous year

Share market pundits are bullish on the prospects of the JK Bank based on its undisputed leadership in the J&K state with a market share of 65% and growing, high CASA ratio, better yields on advances in the state leading to a NIM of more than 5% in the J&K state business, which is growing. The bank, which was earlier focused on lending to bigger companies mainly in its rest of India portfolio, has been for the last couple of years focused on SME and Retail customers in J&K state who are more profitable and ring-fenced from competition due to higher entry barriers to meet the geographical outreach of the Bank in J&K state. The Operating Income of the Bank as per the analysts will be further amplified in the current fiscal as the pressure of interest capitalization due to JK Restructured Portfolio is also over now. Additionally to support the robust credit growth, the Board of the Bank has already accorded approval for raising additional Tier I and Tier II capital to the extent of Rs 1600 Cr. The analysts are expecting substantial upside as the share of the bank is still trading at a steep discount to its Book value of Rs 119.
