Before introduction of the present concept of Clearing House, the representatives of the banks had to collect the proceeds of the instruments in Cash from the drawee banks, which involve risk, time and money. Mr. Arbin first thought about Clearing House to solve those problems and on the basis of his revolutionary thought Banks’ Clearing House was initially established in 1775 in London as “London Clearing”.


Clearing House is mechanisms for expeditious settlement of inter bank claims arising out of their constituent’s negotiable instruments in presence of representatives of all member banks. In Bangladesh, Clearing arrangements exist in the office of the Bangladesh Bank, at other places in the office of Sonali Bank where Bangladesh Bank has no Office.


  1. Inter-Branch Clearing, and
  2. Inter-Bank Clearing.

Under the system of Inter-Branch Clearing, inter-branch claims of a particular bank within the City or town area are settled through their Main Office or Local Office.

But under the system of Inter Bank Clearing, the claims among the members of the clearing house of different Banks within the area of clearing house are settled under the direct supervision and control of Bangladesh Bank and each member bank of the Clearing House has to maintain their account with Bangladesh Bank.


Clearing House is essential for adjustment of a developed Banking System. It makes easy settlement of inter-bank claims and it saves huge cash transactions and consequent danger of loss in transit and the necessity of holding by every bank of a huge cash balances for the purpose. The Clearing House is of incalculable benefit as a time, labor, risk and currency saver.


  • Operational procedure at Branch Level,
  • Internal or Inter-Branch Clearing procedure, and
  • Main Clearing House or Inter-Bank procedure.


  1. Outward Clearing,
  2. Inward Clearing.


Under this system negotiable instruments drawn on other banks are presented in the respective bank through Clearing House for receiving payment and after receiving the proceeds of the cheque / instruments the accounts of the respective clients are credited.


Under this system negotiable instruments of different banks presented in the Clearing House are received by the representative of the respective bank and bring the instruments of their branches for making payment.

Procedural activities of Outward Clearing System:

Outward Clearing System includes the following activities:

  • Scrutinizing the correctness of the instruments that received for clearing.
  • Affixing the branch crossing seal on the face of the instrument.
  • Affixing branch clearing seal on the deposit slips and on the face of the instruments.
  • Making necessary endorsement on the back of the instruments.
  • Encoding the necessary information of the instruments in the diskette.

Precautionary Measures:

While making payment of the instruments received the clearing House the following precautionary measures should be taken:

  • If the crossing seal of the collecting bank on the face of the instrument is not affixed the instrument should not be honored.
  • If the clearing seal with present date is not affixed on the face of the instrument, the instrument should be returned unpaid.
  • Date on the face of the instrument must be checked carefully. If the cheque is post-dated or anti-dated the cheque should be returned unpaid.
  • If the cheque does not bear the signature of the drawer on the face of the cheque, the cheque must be returned.
  • If the drawer’s signature of the cheque differs with the Specimen Signature Card, the cheque should not be honored.
  • If the amount in word differs with figures the instrument should not be honored.
  • If the instrument does not bear the endorsement on the back the instrument, the instrument should be returned.
  • If the drawer stops the instrument, the instrument should be returned unpaid.
  • If the instrument is mutilated and the collecting bank does not confirm the same, the instrument should be returned.
  • If the alteration in date / figure / words is not confirmed by the drawer the instrument should not be honored.
  • If the collecting bank’s discharge is irregular, the instrument should be dishonored.


The Bank’s strength and competitive capabilities can be shown by the SWOT analysis. The SWOT analysis is grounded in the basic principle that strategy-making efforts must aim at producing a good fit between a company’s resource capability and its external situation. The SWOT analysis of BASIC Bank Limited is as follows:

S- Strengths

(i) Reputation of the Bank: Since the inauguration the bank has managed their activity with their own images to serve their customers. They have provided services successfully and have achieved goodwill among the Banks. The Bank is opening with its efficiency and integrity.

(ii) Sponsor: BASIC bank has sponsors from various sectors of Bangladesh. The most successful entrepreneurs from various sectors started this company. As a result there was a combination of different thoughts and skills in the management of the bank, which is very much essential for success in today’s competitive market.

(iii) Top Management: BASIC bank has a very competent and experienced top Management. The current Managing Director Mr. Mozammel Haque has banking experience for a long time period. He had the experience of marketing and customer relationship management in his long career. This has helped the bank to achieve its goal.

(iv) Shariah Based Banking: BASIC Bank is operating based on Islamic Shariah. As Bangladesh is a Muslim country, the Shariah banking has been able to attract customers and achieved a great success in the private banking sector.

(v) Branches: BASIC bank is operating their business all over the country with 30 branches and still planning to expand their business by opening new branches in the country. It has strengthened the distribution of the bank’s services.

(vi) Government Bank: The 100% Share of BASIC Bank is Government. So it is a very Good Strength for any Company.

W- Weaknesses:

(i) Promotion: The bank does not any formal promotional activity. They do not give any sort of advertisement or do not have any marketing activity. They do not even too many billboards. This is why they are far behind the competitive in the private banking. Even some people do not know that BASIC Bank is operated according to Shariah.

(ii) Remuneration: The remuneration of the officers of BASIC bank is lower compared to other private banks. Even the internship students are paid nothing. This is why high skilled human resources are discouraged to join here.

(iii) Online Banking: At Present Every bank try to converted them to the Online banking. BASIC bank has no Online Banking System. So it is a great weakness for the Bank. I hope that BASIC Bank also introduce the Online banking System & serve his Client very Smoothly

(iv) Centralization Decision Making: The decision making of the bank is too many centralized. No decision is made without the authorization of the head office. Sometime some quick decision is needed to be taken, but from the branch, no one can make decision. It is one of the major draws back of the bank.

(v) Lacings of some officer: Some of the officer of the BASIC Bank LTD are not sincere their work. They do not come regularly; if they come they do not work properly. They just talk & pass the time. Some of the officers are not suitable for his position.

O- Opportunities

(i) Consumer Banking: BASIC bank is operating corporate banking. In our country there is a huge opportunity of consumer banking. So BASIC bank can reposition their branding and introduce consumer banking with corporate banking.

(ii) ATM: The banking sector of the country is becoming modernized in the country. People like to draw money anytime from anywhere. So ATM card is getting popularized in the country. BASIC bank can introduce ATM system in their bank. More Over, Shariah Based banks are not providing ATM cards. So those who want ATM card but do not like interest, they can be attracted by ATM card issued by a Shariah Based Bank.

(iii) More Branches: The economy of the country is expanding. The business outside Dhaka is also expanding. As a result, the demand for banking service is increasing day by day. So BASIC bank can open more banks in the country and can expand their business.

(iv) Shariah Based Banking: In our country people are religious. Most of the people are Muslim. They are becoming educated and know the bad impact of interest. So they are moving towards Shariah based banking. BASIC bank takes this opportunity.

(v) Government Bank: BASICBank is Govt. Bank. So it has a great opportunity to expand itself.

T- Threats

(i) Competitions: In Bangladesh, after economic reform, more private bank has started their operation in the country. They are coming with different types of attracting products. This has increased the completion among the private banks.

(ii) Devaluation of local Currency: The value of local currency is decreasing. So investment in local banking is decreasing. More over the inflation is increasing in the country. So people want to save money but in many cases they cannot. As a result, the banks are getting less deposit.

(iii) Bank Default: There is a tendency of the people of the country to become bankrupt. Few years ago Sonali &Oriental bank has a great suffering. In our country, the receivable from top 20 bankrupt companies stood 88.36 billion. This is discouraging banks to make new investment.


Basic Bank is one of the top class banks in our country. When I was placed at Agrabad Branch I didn’t have serious problems regarding the operation, customer service, management, human resource department or anything else.

In spite of this I found few problems as follows:

  • The time to reach Permanent Position from probation period takes almost two years, which is a very long time process as I considered and it should be less than two year.
  • Some Officers of the bank are not self-motivated. They should be self-motivated by training.
  • Basic Bank has only 68 branches, which are not so satisfactory to serve the country widely. It requires more branches throughout the country.
  • DD, TT takes more time to operate. It should minimize time.
  • We require some valuable information for the purpose of making Internship report but these kinds of information is not available. We strongly suggest helping us in this matter.


The BASIC Bank Limited has been trying to operate its business successfully in Bangladesh since 1994. Basic Bank has already developed goodwill among its clientele by offering its excellent services through General banking, Credit division and Foreign Exchange divisions. This success has resulted from the dedication, commitment and dynamic leadership among its management over the periods. The working atmosphere of the BASIC Bank Limited is very simulating. During the short span of time of its operation, the bank has been successfully to the position itself as a progressive and dynamic financial institution in the country due to the following reasons:

Although there was huge loss in the establishment period of the bank due to huge sunk cost and operating cost, from the second year the bank was gradually able to reduce cost proportionately through an effective management.

Interest expanses of the bank are reducing proportionately compared to interest income due to huge accumulation deposits as a result of increasing number of depositors. The number of depositors and the amount of deposits lie in the upward trend due to offering attractive services to the customers.

Other income of the bank is also going up every year due to the increase of commission, exchange and brokerage fees in the foreign exchange section. Foreign exchange of the bank is operating effectively.

Operating expenses of the bank increasing every year compared to the growth in deposits. All this together with its adoption of modern trend of Banking system has enable it to turn out as potential profiteering financial Institution. My course of internship in this Bank has been very valuable.
