1. Increasing NPAs: NPAs (Non-Performing Assets) are growing subsequently year on year basis and impacting the Indian economy as a whole. It is also chocking the bank's ability to provide their lending facilities effectively. ICICI bank reported 17.08% reduction in their net profits in Q4 of FY 17 due to increasing NPAs which in turn requires high provisioning for bad loans and lead to decrease in assets quality. The increase in NPAs in the Q4 was due to the one account in the cement sector. But the bank is taking strict measures to improve the condition working under the guideline provided by RBI.
2. Higher service charge: ICICI Bank has higher service charge in comparison to other banks due to which the people are shifting their preference to other banks. For instance, ICICI charges Rs. 250 for chequebook of 10 leaves whereas SBI charges Rs. 30 plus service tax. Thus if ICICI Bank can control its cost, they might see an increase in market share.

ICICI bank is the first bank in India that has employed ‘Software Robotics’ to re-engineer business processes. These Robots are configured to interpret information form systems, recognize pattern and run business processes through applications. Currently, it has 500 such robots which are handling 1 million banking transactions every working day. This results in 60%reduction in response time and increase in productivity.
2. Strategic Investment in Rural and semi urban areas to growth: Various companies have recognized the great potential in the rural and semi urban areas where they can expand their operations. It is the big opportunity for banks to build goodwill among the people residing in rural areas by helping them starting their business or training them which in turn will increase the customer base for the future market. ICICI Bank has started two initiatives namely ‘ICICI Digital Villages’ where the objective is to digitise 100 villages in 100 days. The commercial activities will be digitised, ICICI foundation will impart vocational training and credit facilities will provide to villagers where they can enhance their livelihood opportunities.
