In India, the primary, secondary, and tertiary sectors play a vital role in building its economy. The important tertiary sector that helps in the circulation of money is the banking sector which builds the Indian economy. The structure of the banking industry has changed largely because of the economic and financial changes after demonetization and changing government policy. Meanwhile, commercial banks strive to differentiate themselves from one another as they compete for their share of the market. Banks always try to retain their existing customers by providing quality services that lead to customer satisfaction. India has the highest number of bank branches in the world.
