Small businesses are struggling more than the salaried as seen from current accounts versus savings accounts trends.

According to a report by Kotak Institutional Equities, the ownership data for deposits shows that deposit outflow seen by a few private banks in 4QFY20 has probably reflected in slower market share loss for PSUs with private banks losing market share in government deposits.


Private banks continue to do well especially on household deposits while foreign banks gained current accounts share for the third year in a row.

The report highlights the variance in household current and saving deposit growth is a sign of dichotomy. Dissecting the current account deposit growth shows headline growth is driven by corporates whereas the household sector (i.e. SME) with a 35 percent share declined 2 percent year on year. In contrast, household savings deposits (82 percent of overall savings accounts) grew 10 percent year on year compared to 9 percent in FY2018-19, reflecting a steady rise in savings, a trend reflected in household term deposit growth (10 percent year on year) as well.

Government sector deposit growth comprising of central, state, and local governments has slowed considerably to -1 percent and -3 percent in FY2020 and FY2019 after growing at 9 percent and 30 percent in FY2018 and FY2017.

The slowdown is largely driven by term deposits whereas current and saving deposit growth has been flattish. As a result, the share of government deposits is at a multi-year low of 8 percent (vs 10.5 percent in FY2018). Further, private banks lost market share in FY2020, after four years of gain. On their small base, SFBs have maintained market share.

The key insights from RBI’s ownership of deposits report show that Overall deposits grew 9% YoY (vs 10 percent YoY in FY2019), driven by current account deposits growing by 8 percent YoY and savings deposits by 10 percent YoY, while term deposits grew 8 percent YoY.

Private banks continue to chip away retail deposits but lose share in current accounts. Private banks continued to gain market share in household deposits (albeit slower pace) to 24 percent with significant headroom to grow as PSU banks still maintain a 70 percent share.

Irrespective of the age of your child, it is vital for parents to offer that extra support and assistance following an unsettling event.

In comparison to adults, children are prone to getting traumatized by troubling events easily, and this makes it important for parents to help their children when the times are tough. It could be a brutal accident, an unprecedented pandemic, a violent crime, or other disasters but with the right parental support, children have a higher chance of coming out stronger from an awful situation.

Anuja Kapur, Psychologist shares few tips wherein you can assist your child when tough times comes calling:

What children feel about a current disaster in their life and how they react to it can come and go in waves. Children can act moody and withdrawn at times, struck with sorrow and fear at other times. There's no absolute "right" or "wrong" way to feel after a traumatic event so make sure not to dictate what your child or how your child should feel and react to the event.

European consumers will be able to use a single charger for all their portable electronics - an important step to increase convenience and reduce waste.

The European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union (EU), has announced plans for smartphone and other electronics manufacturers to fit a common USB-C charging port on their devices in an effort to reduce waste. In addition to phones, the rules will apply to other devices like tablets, headphones, portable speakers, videogame consoles, and cameras, reports The Verge. The decision will have a huge impact on Apple, as the company still uses its own Lightning connector to charge iPhones. The proposals only cover devices using wired, not wireless and a USB-C port is only mandatory for devices that charge using a cable.
