A study on customer service quality of banks in Tamil Nadu
Dr. R Seenivasan
Bank plays an important role in the economic development of a country. The banking industry in India is facing certain challenges i.e. challenges of quality service, customer satisfaction, customer retention, customer loyalty. Quality service plays a major role in achieving customer satisfaction and creating brand loyalty in banking sector. Increased competition, highly educated consumers, and increase in standard of living are forcing many businesses to review their customer service strategy. Many business firms are channeling more efforts to retain existing customers rather than to acquire new ones since the cost of acquiring new customer is greater than cost of retaining existing customers. So as the service quality improves, the probability of customer satisfaction increases. Increase satisfaction in turn increases the mutual understanding, customer retention and a bond of trust between customers and banks.
