Online banking may be defined as the direct linking of an operation or equipment to a computer system so that any stimulus provided by that operation is immediately accepted by that computer system. This means that when a transaction is entered by the user, the computer acknowledges it and updates the related files, which are effected by payments, to facilitate fast payment to the beneficiaries. Today, many banks in India have their own websites. Some of them offer banking facilities, such as account enquiry, request for statement and cheque book. In Internet banking, the bank provides customers with an ATM Card, a Visa cheque and electronic bill payment facilities, etc.

Transaction speed: Online bank sites generally execute and confirm transactions at or quicker than ATM processing speeds. Efficiency: You can access and manage all of your bank accounts, including IRAs, CDs, even securities, from one secure site. Effectiveness: Many online banking sites now offer sophisticated tools, including account aggregation, stock quotes, rate alerts and portfolio managing programs to help you manage all of your assets more effectively. Most are also compatible with money managing programs such as Quicken and Microsoft Money.

Disadvantages of online banking

  • Start-up may take time: In order to register for your bank's online program, you will probably have to provide ID and sign a form at a bank branch. If you and your spouse wish to view and manage your assets together online, one of you may have to sign a durable power of attorney before the bank will display all of your holdings together.
  • Learning curve: Banking sites can be difficult to navigate at first. Plan to invest some time and/or read the tutorials in order to become comfortable in your virtual lobby.
  • Bank site changes: Even the largest banks periodically upgrade their online programs, adding new features in unfamiliar places. In some cases, you may have to re-enter account information.
  • The trust thingFor many people, the biggest hurdle to online banking is learning to trust it. Did my transaction go through? Did I push the transfer button once or twice? Best bet: always print the transaction receipt and keep it with your bank records until it shows up on your personal site and/or your bank statement.
