1 Introduction

Managing the function of each department efficiently and a proper flexible


payment procedure is enough for a bank & financial institution success. A prudent
bank management should always try to make an appropriate balance between the
payments & receive .The payments & receive flexibility with in a short time give
the customer satisfaction, which leads the more clients in the bank. The transaction
will be automatically high and increase the commission and profit of the Bank. A
bank financial institution might be fault with inappropriate function of department
and payment procedure for the purpose of maximizing its potential return. In such
a situation, the banking financial institutions might find itself in serious financial
distress, instead of improving its financial health. Consequently, not only the
depositors but also the donor agency or general shareholders will be deprived of
getting back their money from the bank. The deterioration of loan quality also
affects the intermediaries’ efficiency of the financial institution and thus economic
growth process of the country. This is the reason for an appropriate function of
each department on the bank and payment procedures are being regulated in all
banks and financial institutions.
1.1 Origin of Report
The purpose of this report is to focus practical Experiences of my day-to-
day work as a part of my internship period on National Bank Limited, Elephant
Road, Branch. Dhaka.

1.1.1 Methodology of Study

1.1.1.1 Data Collection

The major emphasis is given on discover of idea and insight of


organization keeping this study. This is a preliminary phase and is absolutely
essential in order a proper definition of a problem. We have come across so many
hard work and effort to get the primary and secondary data. Data collection of the
study is divided into two divisions:

 Primary data collection

 Secondary data collection

1.1.1.2 Primary data collection

Primary data are that information which is collected for the specific
purpose of hand. Primary data was collected from the following sources:

 Observation
 Projection Techniques

 Depth Interviews

 Interaction with the Customers and Bank Officers

1.1.1.3 Secondary data collection

Secondary data was that information that already exists somewhere having
been collected for another propose collect of secondary data. The following are
some of the sources we have usual.

 Bank Officers and Customers

 Collection of data from different statements and abstracts.

 Internet, Brochures, annual report etc.

1.2 Objective of the Study


The main objective of this report is to fulfill partial requirements of B.B.A
program. In order to be able to obtain the B.B.A program from “IBAIS
UNIVERSITY DHAKA,BANGLADESH. The objectives of the study are to have
some practical knowledge about the function of each department of National bank
Limited. The study objective is to evaluate the function of department and
payment procedure performance system. Thus I have tried to find out some means,
which may help to improve bank performance.

As one of the main objectives of internship is to gather experience, I have


tried to put some of the experiences that I have learnt from my internship in this
report.

The objectives of the study can be pointed out as follows:-

 To present an overview of National Bank Ltd.


 Accounting information system of National Bank.

 To apprise financial performance of National Bank Ltd.

 To examine the performance indicator of each department.

 To develop self-knowledge and skill in the professional field and


finding the way to further research in future

1.3 Rational of the Study


Bangladesh is one of the underdeveloped countries in the world. It is so,
because of several reasons. The economy of Bangladesh in more or less a mixed
economy. For this reason various measures have been taken since the post
liberation war period.

In an economy like this, banking sector can play an important role to


improve the overall socio-economic condition of the country. The banks by
playing the role of an intermediary can mobilize the excess fund of surplus sectors
to provide necessary finance, to those sectors, which are needed to promote for the
sound development of an economy.

The process of economic development of Bangladesh has been seriously


constrained by the continuing crisis of banking service with affordable price. This
paper attempts to discuss this vital issue is designed to provide theoretical and
empirical insights to this problem.

A number of studies have been made to evaluate the performance of


National Bank Ltd, in the field of function of department and payment procedure.
The reason behind doing this to manage the bank service daily efficiently and
customer can withdraw the cash easily within short time from the bank.

1.4 Scope of the study


We know from the early study that, the National Bank Ltd is a prominent
commercial bank in Bangladesh. National Bank Ltd provides various product &
services in various sector. Each of branches is providing services on department
basis .Such as Accounts, Deposit, Advance, Card, Remittance, Foreign exchange,
Clearing and CIBTA department.

To prepare the internship report I encountered some limitations. The


limitations are as follows:-

 The main barrier in collecting information is lack of secondary data.


There no specific records to identify the performance of the bank. The
records are maintained by a sector basis.
 Some Bank officers were reluctant to divulge information about their
own respective functions.

 Limitation of time was a major constraint in making a complete study,


due to time limitation. The duration was only twelve weeks. It was too
limited to cover all the banking area. Many aspects could not be
discussed in the present study.

 There were some confidential files where I did not get access.
2 An overview of National Bank Ltd

2.1 Banking System


Financial sector in Bangladesh comprises of mainly banking sector,
insurance companies, stock market, non-bank financial institutions and micro
financing institutions. Out of these, banking sector dominates the financial system,
accounting for more than 95% of its total assets. Banks at early stages of history of
Bangladesh were nationalized and there was mismatch between assets and
liabilities.

The banking system at independence consisted of two branch offices of the


former State Bank of Pakistan and seventeen large commercial banks, two of
which were controlled by Bangladeshi interests and three by foreigners other than
West Pakistanis. There were fourteen smaller commercial banks.

Virtually all banking services were concentrated in urban areas. The newly
independent government immediately designated the Dhaka branch of the State
Bank of Pakistan as the central bank and renamed it the Bangladesh Bank. The
bank was responsible for regulating currency, controlling credit and monetary
policy, and administering exchange control and the official foreign exchange
reserves. The Bangladesh government initially nationalized the entire domestic
banking system and proceeded to reorganize and rename the various banks.
Foreign-owned banks were permitted to continue doing business in Bangladesh.
The insurance business was also nationalized and became a source of potential
investment funds. Cooperative credit systems and postal savings offices handled
service to small individual and rural accounts. The new banking system succeeded
in establishing reasonably efficient procedures for managing credit and foreign
exchange. The primary function of the credit system throughout the 1970s was to
finance trade and the public sector, which together absorbed 75 percent of total
advances.
There was a major policy shift in early 1980s when private sectors banks
were allowed in the country. In addition to the existing 19 public sector and
foreign banks, 10 new private banks opened their business during early 1980s.
Thereafter, another 7 and 13 banks started commercial banking in the country
during mid-1990s and early 2000s respectively.

2.1.1 Structure
Currently, the banking sector comprises of 4 nationalized commercial
banks (NCBs), 5 government-owned specialized banks (SBs) dealing with
development finance in specialized sectors, 30 private commercial banks (PCBs)
and 10 foreign commercial banks (FCBs). The structure of the banking sector as of
December 2008 is shown in the following Table.

Table 1 Schedule banks in Bangladesh

Type of Bank Number of Banks Number of Branches


Nationalized commercial banks (NCBs) 4 3,608
Development financial institutions
8 1,298
(DFIs)
Private commercial banks (PCBs) 29 1,331
Foreign commercial banks (FCBs) 10 34
Source: Bangladesh Bank

The structure of the banking system has changed substantially over the last
few years. NCBs’ role has gone down. Their share in total assets went down from
54 percent in 1998 to 40 percent in 2008. On the other hand, PCBs’ share went up
from 27 percent in 1998 to 43 percent in 2008. The change reflects adoption and
implementation of new policies for the banking sector.

Arguably, Bangladesh has too many financial intermediaries in relation to


the size of its economy (2002 GDP: USD 46b): there are 30 private banks besides
four nationalized commercial banks, five government-owned specialized banks, 12
foreign banks and 28 non-bank financial institutions. The large number of private
banks is mainly because the central bank liberally issued licenses to entrepreneurs
in the 1980s and 1990s (stopped since 2002) for setting up banks; even some ‘less
credible’ entrepreneurs were able to obtain such licenses, and the banks promoted
by them eventually got into all sorts of problems. Further, due to the narrow and
skewed nature of the Bangladesh economy (development is concentrated in and
around Dhaka and Chittagong – the two main cities, while a large part of the
country is undeveloped), most banks compete in a limited geographical area and
with a relatively limited set of ‘good’ borrowers.

The sector embarked upon a Financial Sector Reform Program in the


1990s, which primarily aimed at entrusting additional powers to the central bank
by strengthening efficacy of its instruments. Interest rates were liberalized;
introducing new bills activated open market operation. Attempts were made to
improve governance in the financial sector. The pace of reform slowed down
during the second half of 1990s, but picked up speed from the early part of the
current decade.

beneficiary (ies) get equal the deposit in case of natural death of the account
holder whereas in the event of accidental death of the account holder the
beneficiary (ies) will receive twice the deposit. As for example, if a customer picks
up Easy Class (Tk.50, 000/-) he/she will get Tk.50,000/- for natural death and
Tk.1,00,000/- for accidental death apart from his/her deposited amount and
interest.

1 Comments
National Bank limited is a private commercial bank established in 1983. At
present it has 111 branches and I’ve worked in its uttara branch as part of my
internship program. Uttara is a residential area and large portions of this branch’s
customers are people residing in the area. These people are mainly deposit
holders. Business transaction is concentrated in two large real estate firms and a
few private universities of the area. A large number of student make up the
branch’ regular customers.

The branch consists of a branch manager, assistant manager and 21 other


officers of various level and two peons and three guards. Work is distributed to
every officer. Each officer is assigned his/her work. As part of job rotation system
every officer is transferred within different departments of the branch within a
year. All officers report to the assistant vice president or thes Senior vice
president. The manager looks after the overall management of the branch.
The different departments of the branch are the accounts opening,
clearing, accounts, western union, deposit collection, foreign exchange, credit
management etc.

I’ve started my internship at the accounts opening department. Then I


moved on to the clearing department and credit department, foreign exchange,
cash department deposit western union, foreign remittance &card division.

The work in accounts opening & Cheque book issue section is simply
customer service. Only one officer is assigned with the job. Although this seems
enough during slack period, during rush hour there is clearly a need for another
employee in this department.

The clearing department consists of one principal officers. One officer


examines the cheque and makes the entries in the computer. The other officer
examines and verifies cheques, writes the vouchers, makes OBC and LBC entries,
writes other accounts information and etc.

The work distribution in this department is also rather uneven. One


officer seems to have a lot of time in his hand and other seems to be submerged
with work.

The credit department consists of two principal officers. The work consist
of issuing credit cards.

Acting as the primary bank contact with borrowers, maintaining thorough


knowledge of borrower’s business and industry through regular contact,
factory/warehouse inspections, etc.

It is the duty of officers in this department to proactively monitor the


financial performance and account conduct of borrowers, to be responsible for
the timely and accurate submission of Credit Applications for new proposals and
annual reviews, taking into account the credit assessment requirements and to
highlight any deterioration in borrower’s financial standing and amend the
borrower’s Risk Grade in a timely manner.
The overall atmosphere in the branch is friendly. Employees are warm and
friendly to customers as well as to each.

Recommendation
It is very difficult to recommend a strong organization like National Bank
Limited, which is performing over 26 years. I a suggesting to improve in some
areas. So it can perform better in future.

 NBL always take conservative decision to implement new idea.


 NBL should give attention to man power assessment and provide the
actual number of officer that need to run the every Branch.

 NBL have to more conscious about the promotional activities. They


pursued advertisement campaign in order to build a strong image
among the people. They should carry out aggressive marketing
campaign to attract clients. They can give advertisements in newspaper
and magazine, television

 NBL can pursue a diversification strategy in expanding its current line


of business. The management can consider options of starting merchant
banking.

 NBL should move towards Online banking operations.

 They have more CSR (Corporate Social Responsible) oriented.


2 Conclusion
In 2008 NBL earned the highest profit since it started in January
1983 and achieved strong growth in terms of capital and business size despite
uneasy domestic economic condition and Global recession.

With a strong deposit balance and assets National Bank Ltd run a efficient
way not only in our but also in the abroad. National Bank Limited has been trying
to operate its business successfully since 1983. The bank has already developed
good image and goodwill among its clients by offering excellent services. As a
newly established Branch, NBL Elephant Road is serving at its locality with utmost
satisfaction of the customer. So, NBL Elephant Road Branch has to compete with
those banks as well as other Commercial Banks. Today, the whole Banking sector
is facing a tough competition and challenge. In this situation this Branch is in good
position than any other Bank of its locality and day-by-day is increasing its
activities & goodwill.

Finally I can say that among the entire private bank in Bangladesh,
National Bank limited always providing the efficient service with very affordable
price. It is expanding their business all over the world with their performance
rapidly.
