Customers

There is no statutory definition of customer. Considering different views to be a customer the requirements are

a) An offer by a person to open some sort of account whether savings or current or fixed deposit account.
b) Banker’s willingness to accept such an offer ultimately resulting in the opening of an account.

Thus, it is clear to us that the different sections of people might take the services of a bank but all of them are not customers in the true sense of the term.

Potential Customers
There are people who sometimes take services provided by banks but presently they are not customers. In course of time, they may become customers of a bank.

General Public
This group consists of people who are neither customers nor potential customers but they may take the services of a bank on some occasions.
While thinking of customer services these three types of people should be taken into consideration by the bankers.
