"A Study of Perception of Self-Employed Professions Towards Green Banking Initiatives on Major Public Sector Banks at Belthangady Dakshina Kannada" International Research Journal of Economics and Management Studies, Vol. 2, No. 1, pp. 155-162, 2023.
Core banking has replaced traditional banking as the preferred method of operation, and services are now fully customizable. The largest issue facing bankers is that they must act decisively while taking into account the rapidly changing physical environment, the depletion of natural resources, and meeting client expectations. Climate change, an increase in paper consumption, and carbon footprint emissions are all current phenomena. The moment has come for bankers to inform and motivate their clients to use technologically based solutions and go paperless. This will make transactions more convenient, save a lot of time, and lower operating expenses. Also, it will contribute to the preservation of the world for future generations. The goal of this study is to comprehend how self-employed professionals perceive themselves in Belthangady, Dakshina Kannada District. The collected data is tabulated & analyzed using Non parametric test. The study's findings indicated a lack of a relationship between respondents' satisfaction levels and their use of green banking services.
