Report on Banking System of IFIC Bank Limited.

1.1 Scene behind the study

Banks play an important role in the development of a country. Bangladesh Government and Central Bank developed implemented different rules and regulation on behalf of the healthier economy. World Bank also gives his favorable eyes to restructure the bank society.

‘BBA – for 21st centuries banking’ is the most dynamic innovation for the new millennium. This internship program is part of our Academic structure. I have tried my best in be oriented with the practice of banking in real life.

Modern Banking plays an important part in promoting economic development of country. Banks provide necessary funds for executing various programs underway in the process of economic development. They collect savings of large masses of people scattered throughout the country, which in the absence of banks of banks would have remained ideal and unproductive. These scattered amounts are collected, pooled together and made available to commerce and industry for meeting the requirements. Economy of Bangladesh is in the group of world’s most undeveloped economies. One of the reasons may be its underdeveloped banking system. Government as well different international organizations have also identified those underdeveloped banking system cause some obstacles to the process of economic development. So, they have highly recommended for reforming financial sector.

Since 1990, Bangladesh Government has taken a lot of financial sector reform measurements for making financial sector as well as banking sector more transparent and formulation and implementations of these reform activities has also been participated by different international organization like World Bank, IMF etc.

In 1996, World Bank published ‘Bangladesh: Agenda for action’ in which it has suggested a lot of recommendations for economic development of our country. These recommendations include special presentation for reforming banking sector. In this agenda, World Bank has suggested to introduce BBA as follows:

‘Professional sings the banking business will generate large, long term pay offs in the form of a more efficient banking system apart from functional and technology related training required at Bangladesh Bank and the commercial banks. Consideration should be given to starting a Bachelor of Business Administration program at ASA University Bangladesh (ASAUB).’

Our high banking official has also felt the importance of having entry level officer who are well educated in banking field. Accordingly, BBA program has been started in earlier of this year. The entire fourth term of this BBA program has been designed for gaining practical knowledge about banking and all the BBA students are required to go to various financial institutions for practical exposure. Having completed practical orientation, all the students are also required to submit a report in their experience.

1.2 Objectives of the study

The primary objective of the study is to attend the course of Practical Orientation in Banks but the objective behind this study is something broader. Objectives of the study are summarized in the following manner:

  • To comply with the entire branch banking procedures.
  • To make a bridge between the theories and practical procedures of banking day to day operations.
  • To analyze the performance of the branch as well as IFIC Bank limited as a whole.

1.3 Significance of the Report

This report is prepared to give a concrete idea about the dealing and transactions of any commercial bank. I believe that my report will help a lot those who want an orientation about banking. Bank management also can be using the information of my observation for their managerial decision if needed.

1.4 Methodology

This report has been prepared on the basis of experience gathering during the period of internship from 16th January 2012 to 16th April 2012. Within this period I visited three department namely General Banking, Advances and Foreign Exchange departments.

Firstly total duration was divided into total working days that come to a total working day of 90 days (3 Months) and were distributed in following manner:

Departments

I have worked different kinds of desks. I have collected some data for organize the report. Both primary and secondary data sources were used to generate this repost.

Primary Data Sources:

  • Schedule survey
  • Informal discussion with professionals
  • Observation while working in different desks etc.

Secondary Data Sources:

  • Previous internship reports
  • Corporate news & letters
  •  Manuals
  • Different publications of Bangladesh Bank

1.5 Structure of the Report

This report has been prepared in different chapter in order to explain my experience in the easiest way. Introduction is presented in the chapter 1, which contains scenes behind the study, objectives of the study, significance of the study & methodology. Second (2nd) Chapter contains about IFIC Bank’s over view and its mission, vision as well as Bank’s operation in detailed, in the chapter 3, I try to focus my knowledge which I gathered from Internship Program, In chapter 4, I focused SWOT Analysis & my recommendation about IFIC Bank Limited and finally in chapter 5, I gave a proper conclusion of IFIC Bank Limited.

1.6 Limitations of the study

Twelve weeks observation and orientation is not enough to be an expert on commercial banking though I have been received the maximum assistance from the every individual of the IFIC Bank Mohammadpur Branch. Definitely, I could not produce an outstanding report for the time limitations.

Al though internship program is a practical oriented program, it face some difficulties. The major difficulties I have faced during my period in IFIC Bank LTD, Are as follows:

  • Initially, adjustment with the new environment. A sudden change of studentship to a job- like situation is a problem.
  • Usually company is not willing to provide their actual data of financial statement for maintaining confidentiality.
  • Short time another major problem for a sound internship report. To prepare a report on some issues take much time but in practice we are given a short time.
  • Finally, the lack of the depth of my knowledge and he analytical capacity for writing such report is also a shortcoming of this study.

2.1 Portrait of the Bank

International Finance Investment and Commerce (IFIC) Bank Limited started banking operations on June 24, 1983. Prior of that it was set up in 1976 as a joint venture finance company at the instant of the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh. Government then held 49% shares while the sponsors and general public held the rest. The objectives of the finance company were to establish venture Banks finances companies and affiliates abroad and to carry out normal functions of a finance company at home. When the Government decided to open up banking in the privet sector in 1983 the above finance company was converted a full-fledged commercial bank. Along with this, the Government also allowed four other commercial banks, which were, then fully Government owned. While in all these Banks Government is holding normal 5% shares, an exception was made in the case of the Bank. It retained 40% shares of the Bank. The decision by the Government to retain 40% shares in IFIC Bank was in pursuance of the original objectives, namely, promotion of the participation of Government and private sponsor to establish joint venture Banks, financial companies, branches and affiliates abroad.

2.2 Ownership Structure

The sponsors hold ownership of the Bank in the private sector and Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh. Sponsors and individuals now own about 62% of the share capital and the Government owns a little more than 38% of the shares.

2.23 Local Remittance

Sending money from one place to another for the customer is another important service of banks and this service is an important part of country’s payment system. For this service people, especially businessmen can transfer funds from one place to another place very quickly. There are five kinds of techniques for remitting money from one place to another place. These are:

  1. Demand Draft (DD)
  2. Pay order (PO)
  3. Telegraphic Transfer (TT)
  4. Telephone Transfer (TT)
  5. Mail Transfer (MT)

Telegraphic and Telephone Transfer are almost same, both are them are known as TT in short. So the basic three types of local remittances are discussed below:

Demand Draft (DD)

A demand Draft is also called the Bankers Draft. It is an instrument, issued by a particular branch, drawn on another branch of the same bank, instructing to pay a certain amount of money. DD is very much popular instrument for remitting money from one place to another place. The remitter of funds can purchase a DD making the amount payable to anyone including him. The banker is discharged from liability only by payment in due course.

Pay Order

A pay order (PO) is an instrument to remit fund within a clearing zone. The PO can only cashed through the issuing branch.

Telegraphic Transfer (TT

Telegraphic Transfer (TT) are affected by telegram, telephone, telex as desired by the remitter. Transfer of funds by telegraphic Transfer is the most repaid and convenient but expensive method. Sometimes the remitter of the funds required the money to be available to the payee immediately. In that case the banker is requested to remit the funds telegraphically. Such type of remittance is called Telegraphic Transfer (TT) but in practice banker uses a test serial to maintain secrecy.

2.24 Cash Department

Cash department is most vital and sensitive organ of the branch as it deals with all kinds of cash transactions. This department starts the day with cash in vault. Each day some cash that is opening cash balance are transferred to the cash offices from the cash vault. Net figure of this cash receipts and payments are added to the opening cash balance. The figure is called closing balance. This closing balance is then added to the vault and this is the final cash balance figure for the bank at end of any particular day. Cash department in the IFIC Bank, Mohammadpur Branch is authorized dealer of foreign currency. So it can deal with buy in grand selling of foreign currency.

  • Less than 5,00,000 cheque is called Normal / Regular Value Cheque
  • 5,00,000 Tk. Cheque or more than 5,00,000 Tk. Cheque is called High Value Cheque.
  • When bank collects this Regular / High Value cheque it will be remain stay in Bangladesh Bank’s Clearing House next day.
  • When a bank received a valid cheque (both Regular & High value) then banker use this seal:

Important matters for receiving the Cheque:

  • Focus on the Date of Cheque.
    • If Bangladesh Bank’s Cheque the time limit will be 3 month/ 90 days.
    • If others Private Bank’s Cheque the time limit will be 6 months/ 180 days.
    • Check the similarity of the amount of Tk. (in word & amount) with the Deposit slip

  • Cheque out of date / post-dated
  • Drawer’s signature differs
  • Payment stopped by drawer
  • Crosse cheque to be presented through a bank
  • Payee’s endorsement required

For Clearing, every bank use several seal on valid cheque. Those are given below:

  • ‘Cross Seal’ will be use in the left corner of the Cheque.

  • If bank have any doubt about the customer’s signature that time after verifying the signature of the customer banker will use ‘signature verified seal’ on the valid cheque.

4.1 SWOT Analysis of IFIC Bank LTD. Mohammadpur Branch

SWOT means overall evaluation of an organization by its activities such as Strength, Weakness, Opportunity & Threat. Now I am going to discuss about IFIC Bank Limited Mohammadpur Branch.

4.2 Recommendation about IFIC Bank LTD. Mohammadpur Branch

It has a large portfolio with huge asset to meet up its liabilities and the management of this bank is accomplished with the expert bankers and managers in all level of management and with a little knowledge about banking, it is not an easy job to find out the difficulties of this branch. Rather than recommending I would like to give my opinion to improve the banking service and make the customer more satisfied.

Renovation of customer service

Since a number of new banks are coming to existence with their extended customer service pattern in a completely competitive manner. Customer services must be made dynamic and prompt. Now a days, people especially business people have very little time to waste. So the bank should make its service prompt so that people need not give more time in the banking activities.

Providing more industrial loans

It seemed to me that the bank having a large amount of deposit is not simply encouraging the large scale of producers that is this bank is not providing that much of long term industrial loans to accelerate the economy as well as to help the economy to solve unemployment problem.

 

Speed up Processing of loan application

If loan-processing time is lengthy, it will not get good borrower. Most of this time is spent for correspondence between Head Office and Branch. So the branch should speed up its loan processing time. For reducing loan-processing time, branch manager should be given more power to sanction loan. This power can eliminate the time. Branch should have independent appraiser for appraising term loan proposal.

Bank should be innovative and diversified in its services

This branch provides only conventional services. Modern banking today is introducing various kinds of deposit account with different attractive features each of which may attract different groups of people. For example, Saving Certificate Scheme introduced by Islami Bank is one of its unique services in the banking in Bangladesh. Even the bank does not provide any ‘Customer Loan’ facility, which has been found very much profitable for those banks who have introduced it in their banking services.

Bank should diversify its banking services and add new features in its services so that it can attract customers from all groups of people. Financial Engineers of IFIC Bank should be innovative in developing new banking services, which will attract customers and reduce costs. It can introduce customer loan scheme, provide bridge loan, or can engage in lease financing. It can also underwrite shares of newly incorporated public companies.

Bank should immediately enter into the credit card market

This bank does not have any plan to enter into the Credit Card Market. It is well versed that tomorrow’s payment will be consisted of only plastic money (Credit Card). A large part of business transaction will be done by credit card in near future. In western world, more than 50% of transactions are in credit card. If this bank does not prepare from now on, it cannot compete in the future market. So, the branch should give special attention to the introduction of Credit Card.

Introduce modern technology

Without using modern technology no bank can even think of remaining in the business in near future. So the bank must decide right now how it can equip its branches with modern technology. Use of modern technology in one sense can increase cost but another sense it increases productivity highly and it attract big clients. It can introduce ATM services is branch. Use of automatic machine like cash counter machine, ATM brings speed in banking services.

Information System should be developed

For information transfer, branch uses primitive ways of telex, messenger and personal visit. It makes correspondence with the head office by peon or orderly. For international correspondence the branch uses telex machine, which is very costly. And in the branch, manager has to visit specific desk for collecting information. Paper communication is too involved between manager and employees. But branch can use INTERNET for both local and international correspondence. E–mail can reduce the telex cost substantially. Bank should take urgent decision to create own WEB Page in INTERNET so that it can communicate with others very quickly.

Development of human resources

Human resource is another sector for the branch to be developed urgently. Human resources, in the branch, are not equipped with adequate banking knowledge. Majority of the human resources are lack of basic knowledge regarding money, banking finance and accounting. Without proper knowledge in these subjects, efficiency cannot be optimized. Bank can arrange training program on these subjects.

Reduce classified loan on an emergency basis

It is observed in the Loans and Advances department that classified loan is about to 36% of the total loan portfolio. Such a big share of classified loan indicates weakness in the lending policy of branch. Probably bank’s customer selection process is not right. Bank should take special action in order to reduce the amount of classified loan. Although branch is maintaining the required provision for its classified loan, branch should consider recovering classified loan on an emergency basis. For this bank should motivate the defaulter for repaying. If motivation failed, then bank should be stringent about the defaulter and take legal action.

Bank should remove the time card system

The oddest thing in this bank is that it maintains a time card system to maintain the attendance of the employee including manager of the branch. It is definitely effective system but it is simply used to record the work hour of the labors in any manufacturing concern in the western countries to make their payment effectively those who are hourly basis worker. This system cannot be employed to the high officials like Manger of the branch etc. this creates an inferior impact on the mind of the employees that they are ill treated which decrease their service providing quality.

Bank must try to be computerized

There are computers almost in every branch in the IFIC Bank, but it does not mean that the bank is maintaining a network among them. The networking system obviously charges a high installation cost, but it will definitely reduce the overhead costs and an error free banking may be in progress. Moreover by adopting this system the bank can join in modern competition of along with e-commerce concept.

4.3 Recommendation for University 

In the forwarding Letter University are using one format for all students and this is not enough. The student has different types of major. Someone have Finance & Accounting and someone have Marketing. In the forwarding letter they should write something more about the internee’s major related working sector. As a result the company or organization can get the idea of the working sector about the Internee. Then the company or organization can nominate the internee based on their working sector. So the university should think about it.

5.1 Conclusion

Form the learning and experience point of view I can say that I really enjoyed my internship period in IFIC Bank Ltd at the Mohammadpur branch from the very first day. I am confident that this 3 months internship program will definitely help me to realize my further carrier in the job market.

There are a number of Private Commercial Banks, Nationalized Commercial Banks and foreign Banks operating their activities in Bangladesh. The IFIC Bank Ltd. is one of them (private). For the future planning and the successful operation for achieving its prime goal in this current competitive environment this report can be helpful guideline. As a leading bank of Bangladesh, IFIC contributes in the business with promising future. I can hope that IFIC can spread their business with increasing various scheme and other utility services.

During the course of my practical orientation I have tried to learn the practical banking to relate it with theoretical knowledge, what I have gathered and going to acquire from various course.
