The topic which is selected for this report is decreasing customer's engagement in banking sector. It is resulting in decreased profits of the industry because clients are getting attracted towards other financial instruments such as shares, debentures, mutual funds, bonds etc. As all of these securities provide better interest rate so the buyers choose them because they want to earn higher returns on their investments. Another reason for selecting these options is taxation because banks charge high TDS on interest if it crosses the limit of 10000 pound. If a customer is not having a Pan id then the rate of TDS will be doubled by the bank. In case of other financial assets if these are kept by the holders for at least three years then the generated return will be considered as long term gain. This will be indexed and then taxable amount is calculated on the same. Nowadays banks are trying to make banking easy for the clients so that their engagement can be enhanced and the issues that are taking place due to this problem. The consequences are reduction in profitability, revenues, number of customers etc. The major thing that they want to acquire is great value from their financial products and services. If their bank is able to fulfil all their requirements then their engagement can be increased. Currently in banking sector all the organisations are facing this problem and for all of them it is very important to find best ways to overcome them. These enterprises are now modifying their customer services in order to make them highly responsive and supportive so that the problems of decreasing engagement can be dealt effectively.
