What are the various facilities, what; are the various facilities, what are the various risk mitigation tools to put a cap on the risk level.

At the post-sanction stage, the bank can decide about the depth of the review or enwall, frequency of review, periodicity or the grading and other precautions to be taken.

Review, periodicity of the mid other precautions to be taken

Having considered the significance of credit risk ),lading, it becomes imperative for the banking system to carefully develop a credit risk grading model which meets the objective outlined above.

The lending Risk Analysis (LRA) mammal introduced in 1993 by the Bangladesh Bank has been in practice for mandatory use by the Banks & financial institutions for loan size of BDT 1.00 core and above. However, file LRA manual suffers from a lot of subjectivity, sometimes creating confusion to the lending Bankers in terms of selection of credit proposals on the basis of risk exposure. Meanwhile, in 2003 end Bangladesh Bank provided guidelines for credit risk grade scorecard for risk assessment of credit proposals

Since the two-credit risk models are presently in vogue. The Governing; Board of Bangladesh institute of Batik Management (13113M) under (he chairmanship of the Governor, 13;mf; latch Bank decided (hat an integrated Credit Risk Grading; Model be developed incorporating file significant features of the above mentioned models with a view to render a need based simplified and user friendly model for application by the Banks and financial institutions in processing credit decisions and evaluating the magnitude of risk involved therein.

Bangladesh Bank expects all commercial franks to have a well-defined credit risk management which delivers accurate and timely risk grading. This manual describes file elements of an effective internal process for grading credit risk. It also provides a comprehensive but generic discussion of the objectives and general characteristics of effective credit risk grading system In practice a banks credit risk grading system should reflect the complexity of its lending activities and the complexity of risk involved.

Whenever an account is handed over from Relationship Management to RU, a Handover/1Downgrade Checklist (Annexure – 9) should be completed

Down Grading process should be done nomadically and should not be postponed unit the annual review process,

The RU’s primary functions arc:

  • Determine Account Action Plan/Recovery Strategy

  • Ensure adequate and timely loan loss provisions arc made based on actual and expected losses.
  • Regular review of grade 6 or worse accounts.
  • Management of classified loans and special mention
  • Accounts and related works writing off’ B/L loans with the approval of the Board

The management of problem loans (NPLs) must be a dynamic process, and the associated strategy together with the adequacy of provisions muss be regularly reviewed. A process should he established to share the lessons learned from f1w experience of credit losses in order to update the lending guidelines.

6.1 Problems Identification

During internship period in Jamuna Bank Limited Malibagh Branch tile following problems are observed.

  • Human resource of any organization is considered as a valuable asset. But human resources, in the branch, are not equipped with adequate banking knowledge. Majority of the human resources have 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.
  • There is shortage of computer in general banking section. Sometimes the shortage of computer makes some unfortunate event in that section.
  • Flora On-line banking software is used by JBL and this is quite difficult to use for the employee as the employees are not well trained.
  • 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 III near future. In western world, more than 50% of transactions are in credit card 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
  • 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

6.2 Recommendation

  • Now a day’s on-line banking is not a very uncommon service 1,01-ally private commercial bank. JBI, provide On-line banking service but they take source charge for it, if the customers do not use his/her mother branch. To encourage customers to use On-line banking facility this service charge should not be taken charge from the customers.
  • Though JBL using very popular software i.e. Flora bank on–line software but the use of it is quite difficult for the employee. (According to the statement of some employee of JBL who has the experience to use more then one banking software).
  • JBL are not taking their clearing cheque for other-     They are using IBC/OBC systems to take that kind of clearing cheque.
  • JBI, not providing the credit cards in market which now a days one of the most important part of banking. So for it they are loosing too many customers.
  • Customer service of bank has a greater impact onits customer. To provide smarter customer service they need a call center department is very popular now a day.
  • Foreign exchange operations of other banks are more dynamic and less time consuming. JBL should take some initiative to compete with those banks.
  • In our country financial problem is a great constraint in foreign trade. JBL Is very conservative for post-shipment finance. 11′ it stays in liberal position the exporters can easily over-come their financial constraint

6.3 Conclusion

During the three months internship program at Malibagh branch, almost all the desks have been observed mire or less. Gaining knowledge of practical banking and to compare this practical knowledge with theoretical knowledge. Though all departments and sections are covered in the internship program, it is not possible to go to the dept of each activities of branch because of time limitation. So, objective of this internship program has not been fulfilled with complete satisfaction. However, highest effort has been given to achieve the objective the internship program. During the internship, it is found that the branch provides all the conventional banking services as well as some specialized financing activities to the economy. 

Jamuna Bank limited started with a vision to be the most efficient financial intermediary in the country and it believes that the day is not far off when it will reach its desired goal. It looks forward to a new horizon with a distinctive mission to become a highly competitive modern and transparent institution comparable to any of its kind at home and abroad.

For any B.B.A student who would like to build up his/her career in the banking sector, he/she must need this type of internship training. As a successful intern, I am really a lucky person that I could perform my Internship in Jamuna Bank Limited; Malibagh Branch, which is the second bank of Bangladesh in case of earning profit.

Jamuna Bank Ltd. has been able to continue its over all progress for year to year, specially in granting loan to right sector and its recovery. Since bank’s profit largely depends on its interest income. Jamuna Bank Ltd. was able to achieve 2nd highest profit in year 2002. Which shows that the loan position, interest and recovery are excellent?

This success has been making possible due to dynamic leadership of the bank management, proper guidelines good counsel and devotion and sincerity of all categories of officers an employees of the bank.

Finally it can be said that, customer satisfaction should be more for emerging markets, up warding growth of national income and overall improvement in the standard of living.
