3 Introduction…. The Urban Co-operative banking system is a unique sector, blending-banking and cooperation. The market driven economy of India, is today posing stiff competition for all traditional institutions like cooperative banks through deployment of more capital, advanced technology and skilled human resources. Despite showing a sustained growth, the sector has gone through a lot of turmoil in the last few years. There is an apprehension as to whether these entities will be able to survive in an increasing competitive environment.
4 …. Introduction In such a competitive environment the sector has to be more efficient to survive. It is therefore imperative to judge their relative performance and understand the best practices for better survival. Hence in present study, relative efficiency of urban cooperative bank is investigated applying Data Envelopment Analysis considering a panel data set of cooperative banks of Indore division.
5 Objectives To measure and compare the efficiency of the Urban Cooperative Banks (UCBs) of Indore, using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA), and to decompose the same into PTE and SE for the purpose of categorizing the sample banks as efficient and less efficient banks. To study the impact of size on the efficiency of the Urban Cooperative Banks. To suggest the appropriate measures to improve the efficiency of the cooperative banks.
6 An overview of urban co-operative banks …. Indian UCB sector plays an important role in meeting growing banking needs of urban and semi urban areas of the country. Urban co-operative banks are regulated and supervised by both, the State Governments, through the Registrars of Co-operative Societies, and by the Reserve Bank of India. The financial health of these institutions has under pressure from their historic poor capitalization, low margins, high transaction costs, excessive state government control and a lack of professional management.

9 Urban Co-operative Banks of Indore… Situated in the heart of MP, the Indore division is an important place in the overall financial fabric of Madhya Pradesh. Since 1916, the cooperative banks of the Indore division have been playing an important role in the socio-economic development of the division. Presently, in the Indore division, twenty two UCBs are catering to the banking needs of the urban and semi urban population of more than 1 crore.
10 Urban Co-operative Banks of Indore UCBs of Indore division show similar characteristics as that of the UCBs across the country - they are highly heterogeneous in terms of deposits, advances,total assets and membership size. The deposits levels vary in the range of Rs to lacs whereas the advances vary between Rs to lacs. Taking a view on the crisis faced by the sector time and again the RBI has identified unviable UCBs. In the last one year the RBI has taken a harsh action to terminate the operations of three UCBs of Indore division.
11 Methodology Efficiency is measured by the ratio of output to input, where a larger value of this ratio indicates better performance. The performance of a bank is conceptualized as the extent to which the bank is able to utilize its resources to generate business transactions and it is measured by an efficiency ratio. The Efficiency of a Banking Institution
12 Methodology We have considered Technical Efficiency (TE) for analyzing the performance of the banks. TE refers to the relationship between scarce factor inputs and outputs of goods and services. The Efficiency of a Banking Institution
13 The DEA Model. Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) is a linear programming application used to determine the relative efficiency for a set of homogenous Decision Making Units. Charnes, Cooper and Rhodes (1978) first developed the DEA approach based on the concept of technical efficiency of Farrel (1957).
14 The DEA Model.. DEA is a very useful technique where the presence of multiple inputs and outputs makes comparison difficult such as banks, schools and hospitals. In our study each Urban Co-operative Bank is a DMU.
15 The DEA Model… DEA creates a fictitious composite bank made up of an optimal weighted average inputs and outputs of existing banks. An individual banks input resources and output generated is compared to this composite bank.
16 The DEA Model… DEA identifies the most efficient banks in a population and provides a measure of inefficiency for all others. The most efficient banks are rated to have an efficiency score of 1 while the less efficient banks have a score between 0 and 1.
17 DEA Model…. DEA is able to decompose Technical Efficiency (TE) into Pure Technical Efficiency (PTE) and Scale Efficiency (SE). Scale efficiency is that component of Technical Efficiency that can be attributed to the size of operation. Whereas Pure Technical Efficiency is the effective implementation of the production plan in converting input to output.
18 Inputs-Outputs for UCBs and The DEA Model INPUTS Interest Paid Operating Expenses OUTPUTS Deposits Advances Net Profit Interest received
19 Inputs-Outputs for UCBs and The DEA Model The choice of input-output variables in the present study is primarily guided by the value added approach (Berger and Humphrey, 1992; Berg et al,1993; Grifell-Totje and Lovell,1996; Kumbhakar and Sarkar,2003) In the value added approach the identification of inputs or outputs is based on the share of value added. Items of balance sheet and profit and loss account with a substantial share of value added are considered.
20 Data…. We have selected UCBs of the Indore division(Madhya Pradesh) for defining and selecting the inputs and outputs. At present twenty-two UCBs operate in the Indore division. The empirical model is estimated using data of nineteen UCBs.
21 ….Data We have considered a four year financial year end data set from 2002 to The data has been obtained from the audited balance sheets and profit and loss statements which were directly collected from the concerning banks.
22 Empirical Results…. In our study DEA analysis is done by using DEAP Version 2.1 Computer Program, by Tin Coelli. It has been observed that the Pure Technical Efficiency of Urban Co-operative Banks of Indore during the period under consideration has shown a decreasing trend. A similar trend is observed in the case of Scale Efficiency.
23 Empirical Results….
24 Empirical Results…. Based on the PTE scores we categorized the sample banks into two groups: Efficient bank group Less efficient bank group End FY No. of efficient banks- 14 End FY No. of efficient banks- 11 End FY No. of efficient banks- 10 End FY No. of efficient banks- 10
25 Empirical Results…. Above grouping results clearly indicate that the number of banks that could feature themselves as efficient banks has decreased over the period under observation. These results also confirm the trend observed across the country where Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has instructed to terminate the operations of considerable number of UCBs due to lack of performance in order to save the interest of depositors.
26 Empirical Results…. Further we attempted to identify the relationship between pure technical efficiency and size of UCBs We found that a slight proportionate trend between total asset and pure technical efficiency seems to prevail but regressing the result with total asset we observed that all the regression coefficients for all the years are positive but statistically insignificant.
27 Empirical Results…. This shows that pure technical efficiency is not governed by size of the bank. It can be concluded that consolidation of UCBs may be non disruptive exit for weak banks but may not improve the pure technical efficiency of UCBs.
28 Empirical Results…. We observed that good corporate governance is critical to efficient functioning of an entity and more so for a banking entity. In the case of UCBs it has been observed that a combination of politics and bureaucracy has has resulted in poor corporate governance. UCBs in India are subject to dual control which further affects the quality of supervision and regulations.
29 Conclusion Development of UCBs into safe and vibrant entities requires them to be efficient. The current market trend and policy makers suggest that for better survival for banks, size is one of the important factors. Our findings confirm that a combination of financial restructuring and institutional reform can only help urban cooperative banks to improve the efficiency.
