I have tried my best to provide with all necessary information about Uttara bank limited but the main problem faced in preparing the paper was the inadequacy and lack of availability of required data. This report is an overall view of General banking activities of The Uttara Bank Ltd. In spite of having the wholehearted effort, there exist some limitations, which acted as a barrier to conduct the program. The limitations were - Difficulty in accessing latest data of internal operations for data security. Since the bank personnel are very busy with their activities, as a result they were unable to provide much information about the report. Every organization has their own secrecy that is not exposed to others. Consolidated data related to the study were not available for the current year. So the most of the information is used from the previous years. The officials did not want to provide all the information that was needed by me . So some assumptions have been made. With all of this limitation I tried my best to make this report as best as possible. So readers are requested to consider these limitations while reading and justifying any part of my study.

Chapter 5:Findings and recommendation

5.1 Findings
More employees

68

Shyamoly Branch, Dhaka branch is am over staffed branch .The number of employees of this branch is more than its requirement.
Customer services are not as well as others:

Although they try to provide well services but they can not satisfy their customers. Lack of technological knowledge is the main reason of their failure. Sometimes some clients are found who can not write but bank employees are not cordial to them. So the customers express their dissatisfactions Lacking of computer skills: There is no person in the branch who knows the computer well. Small problems in computers which are not properly solved create major problems. Especially it happens for money gram process. Tuesday like holiday: Previously I mentioned that the Shyamoly Branch, Dhaka is a marketbased branch. Tuesday is the holiday for Shyamoly. No desk for interns: There is no desk for the intern in the Shamoyli branch. So there is less opportunity for the trainees to learn. Nothing has online system Whether there all private bank has been online banking. This bank until does not be online system

5.2 Recommendations
I suggest the following guidelines for the UBL Shyamoly Branch, Dhaka

69

1) Bank must enrich its services like private commercial bank most one stop service, ATM service etc. 2) The bank should adopt online banking system to make their banking functions fast and smooth like other private bank. 3) For improving customer service, complained cell should be formed in each branch. 4) In order to enlarge the skill ness of bank employees training program should be applied. Reduce the number of employees: The bank should transfer the number of employee to that is surplus to get the proper output from their employee. Increase the computer skill: To increase the computer skills of employees, the bank should provide training. Though they have knowledge about computer but it is not enough. So bank should provide training to their employees to make them efficient in computer. Ensure the smart personnel: It is market-based branch so clients gathering are more and most of the customers are businessmen, so to deal with this type of customers the bank needs smart, knowledgeable and intellectual personnels to provide the best services.
