Activities of NCCBL
The world economy is going through various crises arising from insurgent activities at various parts of the globe. The turbulence also affected Bangladesh Economy adversely as well. Taka has been devalued. The political unrest caused devastation to the industrial and service sectors.
The business communities as a whole apprehend ding imminent doom, tried to negotiate for a compromise among the various concerned parties. The bank earned a modestly satisfactory result during the year 2008, which contributed in continuing its steady growth in respect of all major indicators, namely Deposit, Advance, Profit, etc. During the year NCCBL has concentrated its focus to a number of income increasing sectors such as SME Financing, Inward Foreign Remittance, etc. Also it has put efforts to bring discipline in administering Bank’s Asset through various measures. As a whole, the outcome of these efforts was very positive and encouraging indeed. Prudent handling of Asset-Liability is of utmost importance for keeping up profitability at a satisfactory level of any financial institution. During last few years, with the timely measures taken by the Management under guidance of the Board, it was possible to sustain steady growth through maintaining asset quality.
The Bank has separate Credit Administration Department, Recovery Department and also a task Force for continuous monitoring of difficult loans and advances of the Bank and to propose ways of recovery of Bank’s dues. This process will continue in upcoming years also. Further, the Bank will pay attention to manage liability also so as to build up a strong deposit base to satisfy investment need of the market.
NCCBL plans to continue this project even after expiry of the RPCF, if proved feasible. The Bank has put due emphasis on grooming up its workforce in a technology based working atmosphere for some time. Also to cater the needs of the customers, very recently NCCBL started full-fledged real time On Line Banking System with implementation of Flora Banking UBS Software and introduced Debit Card in the brand name of “MPower Card” The bank also introduced a foreign remittance payment card in the brand name of “MBridge Card” Bank’s Information Technology Division is always engaged in designing need based software and other programmers to ease the situation for the employees so as to enable them to work more dedicatedly to satisfy the customers. Of late financing in SMEs has been proven to be very beneficial for banking sector. Banks have paid special focus to this sector to expand scopes of extending credit facilities to enhance sustainable profit. SME has been found to be a very potential avenue of financing, since it is believed that small and medium entrepreneurs are very hard working and sincere in paying back Bank’s money. Banks are optimistic that investing in this sector would not entail huge volume of default loan like conventional or cooperate financing.

Loan and Advance section
Making advances is the primary function of a bank. A major portion of its funds is used for this purpose and this is also the major sources of bank’s income.
Loans are the right to receive payment or an obligation to make payment on demand or at some future time on account of the immediate transfer of goods (securities).
Loans are the largest asset item, which generally account for half to almost three-quarters of the total value of all banks assets. A bank’s loan account typically is broken down into several groups of similar type loans. The Loan and Advances made by the NCCBL can broadly be classified by following categories-
- Continuous Loan
- Demand Loan
- Term Loan
- Other Special Scheme
These are those advances which do not have any set schedule for drawing or disbursement but usually have a terminal date of full adjustment or repayment.
- Cash Credit (CC)
- Over Draft (OD)
A) Cash Credit (CC):
A Cash Credit (CC) is an arrangement by which the customer is allowed to borrow money up to a limit. This is a permanent arrangement and the customer need not draw the sanctioned amount at once, but draw the amount as and when required. They can put back any surplus amount, which they may find with them. Thus Cash Credit (CC) is an active and running account, which deposits and with drawls may be affected frequently. Interest is charged only for the amount withdrawn and not for the whole amount charged.
If the customer does not use the cash credit (CC) limit to the full extent, a commitment charge is made by the bank. This charge is imposed on the unutilized portion of Cash Credit (CC) only.
Cash Credit (CC) provides an elastic form of borrowing since the limit fluctuates according to the needs of the business. Cash Credits (CC) are the most favorite mode of borrowing by large commercial and industrial concerns in our country.
Cash Credit (CC) arrangements are usually made against the security of commodities hypothecated or pledged with the bank.
There are two types of CC account:
- Cash Credit (Hypothecation)
- Cash Credit (Pledge)
b) Over Draft (OD):
Overdraft (OD) is an arrangement between a banker and its customer by which the latter is allowed to withdraw over his credit balance in the current account up to an agreed limit. This is only a temporary accommodation usually granted against securities. The borrower is permitted to draw and repay any number of times, provided the total amount overdrawn does not exceed the agreed limit. The interest is charged only for the amount drawn and not for the whole amount sanctioned.
A cash credit is differs from an overdraft in one respect. A cash credit is used for long term by businessmen in doing regular business whereas overdraft is made occasionally and for short duration.
There are two kinds of overdraft.

Usually, importer fails to retire the documents in spite of repeated reminders of the banker or the bank has to clear the goods imported under the Letter of Credit at the request of the importer (borrower). In both the cases, whether the importer fails to retire the documents or request for clearance of goods, the outstanding under PAD or B/E is transferred to “Loan against Imported Merchandise (LIM)” account and the overdue interest from the date of accompanying Bills of Exchange or negotiating date to the date of transfer to LIM account is charged. At the time of opening of letter of credit the banks obtain from the importer an arrangement on stamped paper which provides for financing and, if necessary, clearance and storage of goods by debiting importer’s account at their risk and responsibilities. After clearance, consignments are taken delivery by the importer on full payment of bank’s liability. Normally part delivery is not allowed while on LIM account. When the delivery in part is desired by the importer, the LIM is converted into cash credit account retaining proper margin and executing charge documents, the delivery is affected thereafter on obtaining pro rata payment.

The opening bank will lodge the shipping documents to their book and will respond to the debit advice originated by the foreign correspondent to the debit of “Payment against Documents (PAD)” account or “Bills of Exchange (B/E)” accounts and present the bill to the importer for payment. The rate of interest of NCCBL on PAD @ 14.50%

Other Special Scheme
NCCBL Operate some kind of loan scheme as well to contribute the overall economy, poverty alleviation and fulfill some basic needs of the people. The special loan schemes are:
- Consumer Scheme
- Lease Finance

a) Consumer Scheme
The Scheme aims at improving the standard of living of the fixed income group. Under the scheme the clients may secure loan facilities at easy installments to procure household amenities.
An entrepreneur, under this scheme, may avail of the lease facilities to procure industrial machinery (without having to purchase it by down payment) with easy repayment schedule. The clients also get special rebate in their income-tax payment under the scheme.
Lease financing is one of the most convenient long term sources of acquiring capital machinery and equipment. It is a very popular scheme whereby a client is given the opportunity to have an exclusive right to use an asset, usually for an agreed period of time, against payment of rent. Of late, the lease finance has become very popular in almost all the countries of the world. An obvious advantage of the lease is to use an asset without having to buy it. The lessee is obligated to make lease payments until the expiration of the lease agreement, which corresponds to the useful life of the assets. In a capital scarce economy like ours, Lease Financing is suitable for firms to acquire Capital Machinery, Equipments, Medical Instruments, and Automobiles etc. And thereby employ their own resources more advantageously in some other investments. Lease financing also helps a firm to reap significant economic benefit through tax saving and by reducing the risk of the equipments becoming obsolete due to the technological advancement.

CREDIT RISK MANAGEMENT GUIDELINES BY BANGLADESH BANK
Amendment of section 13 of Act N.14 of 1991: In section 13 of the said Act- the words “previous financial year”, wherever they are mentioned, the words “accounting year” the following explanation shall be added, namely: – “For the purpose of this section, demand liabilities and temporary liabilities shall not include the paid-up capital, the consolidated fund, the liabilities shown in the profit and loss account and loans received from the Bangladesh Bank and interbank liabilities.”
INDUSTRY BEST PRACTICES AS SUGGESTD BY BANGLADESH BANK
This section details fundamental credit risk management policies that are recommended for adoption by all banks in Bangladesh. The guidelines contained herein outline general principles that are designed to govern the implementation of more detailed lending procedures and risk grading systems within individual banks.
All banks should have established Credit Policies (“Lending Guidelines”) that clearly outline the senior management’s view of business development priorities and the terms and conditions that should be adhered to in order for loans to be approved. The Lending Guidelines should be updated at least annually to reflect changes in the economic outlook and the evolution of the bank’s loan portfolio, and be distributed to all lending/marketing officers. The Lending Guidelines should be approved by the Managing Director/CEO & Board of Directors of the bank based on the endorsement of the bank’s Head of Credit Risk Management and the Head of Corporate/Commercial Banking. (Section 2.1 of these guidelines refers) Any departure or deviation from the Lending Guidelines should be explicitly identified in credit applications and a justification for approval provided. Approval of loans that do not comply with Lending Guidelines should be restricted to the bank’s Head of Credit or Managing Director/CEO & Board of Directors. The Lending Guidelines should provide the key foundations for account officers/relationship managers (RM) to formulate their recommendations for approval, and should include the following:
Industry and Business Segment Focus:
The Lending Guidelines should clearly identify the business/industry sectors that should constitute the majority of the bank’s loan portfolio. For each sector, a clear indication of the bank’s appetite for growth should be indicated (as an example, Textiles: Grow, Cement: Maintain, Construction: Shrink). This will provide necessary direction to the bank’s marketing staff.
Types of Loan Facilities:
The type of loans that are permitted should be clearly indicated, such as Working Capital, Trade Finance, Term Loan, etc.
Cross Border Risk:
Risk associated with cross border lending. Borrowers of a particular country may be unable or unwilling to fulfill principle and/or interest obligations. Distinguished from ordinary credit risk because the difficulty arises from a political event, such as suspension of external payments
- Synonymous with political & sovereign risk
- Third world debt crisis. For example, export documents negotiated for countries like Nigeria.
Credit Assessment & Risk Grading
- Credit Assessment
A thorough credit and risk assessment should be conducted prior to the granting of loans, and at least annually thereafter for all facilities. The results of this assessment should be presented in a Credit Application that originates from the relationship manager/account officer (“RM”), and is approved by Credit Risk Management (CRM). The RM should be the owner of the customer relationship, and must be held responsible to ensure the accuracy of the entire credit application submitted for approval. RMs must be familiar with the bank’s Lending Guidelines and should conduct due diligence on new borrowers, principals, and guarantors. It is essential that RMs know their customers and conduct due diligence on new borrowers, principals, and guarantors to ensure such parties are in fact who they represent themselves to be. All banks should have established Know Your Customer (KYC) and Money Laundering guidelines which should be adhered to at all times. Credit Applications should summaries the results of the RMs risk assessment and include, as a minimum, the following details:
- Amount and type of loan(s) proposed.
- Purpose of loans.
- Loan Structure (Tenor, Covenants, Repayment Schedule, Interest)
- Security Arrangements.
In addition, the following risk areas should be addressed:
- Borrower Analysis:The majority shareholders, management team and group or affiliate companies should be assessed. Any issues regarding lack of management depth, complicated ownership structures or intergroup transactions should be addressed, and risks mitigated Industry analysis.
- Supplier/Buyer Analysis. Any customer or supplier concentration should be addressed, as these could have a significant impact on the future viability of the borrower.
- Historical Financial Analysis. An analysis of a minimum of 3 years historical financial statements of the borrower should be presented. Where reliance is placed on a corporate guarantor, guarantor financial statements should also be analyses. The analysis should address the quality and sustainability of earnings, cash flow and the strength of the borrower’s balance sheet. Specifically, cash flow, leverage and profitability must be analyzed.
- Projected Financial Performance: Where term facilities are being proposed, projection of the borrower’s future financial performance should be provided, indicating an analysis of the sufficiency of cash flow to service debt repayments. Loans should not be granted if projected cash flow is insufficient to repay debts.
- Account Conduct: For existing borrowers, the historic performance in meeting repayment obligations (trade payments, cheques, interest and principal payments, etc) should be assessed.
- Adherence to Lending Guidelines: Credit Applications should clearly state whether or not the proposed application is in compliance with the bank’s Lending Guidelines. The Bank’s Head of Credit or Managing Director/CEO should approve Credit Applications that do not adhere to the bank’s Lending Guidelines.
- Loan Structure: The amounts and tenors of financing proposed should be justified based on the projected repayment ability and loan purpose. Excessive tenor or amount relative to business needs increases the risk of fund diversion and may adversely impact the borrower’s repayment ability.
- Security: A current valuation of collateral should be obtained and the quality and priority of security being proposed should be assessed. Loans should not be granted based solely on security. Adequacy and the extent of the insurance coverage should be assessed.
- Name Lending: Credit proposals should not be unduly influenced by an over reliance on the sponsoring principal’s reputation, reported independent means, or their perceived willingness to inject funds into various business enterprises in case of need. These situations should be discouraged and treated with great caution. Rather, credit proposals and the granting of loans should be based on sound fundamentals, supported by a thorough financial and risk analysis. Appendix iv contains a template for credit application.
All Banks should adopt a credit risk grading system. The system should define the risk profile of borrower’s to ensure that account management, structure and pricing are commensurate with the risk involved. Risk grading is a key measurement of a bank’s asset quality, and as such, it is essential that grading is a robust process. All facilities should be assigned a risk grade. Where deterioration in risk is noted, the Risk Grade assigned to a borrower and its facilities should be immediately changed. Borrower Risk Grades should be clearly stated on Credit Applications. The following Risk Grade Matrix is provided as an example. The more conservative risk grade (higher) should be applied if there is a difference between the personal judgment and the Risk Grade Scorecard results. It is recognized that the banks may have more or less Risk Grades; however, monitoring standards and account management must be appropriate given the assigned Risk Grade:
Approval Authority, Segregation of Duties & Internal Audit
- Approval Authority
The authority to sanction/approve loans must be clearly delegated to senior credit executives by the Managing Director/CEO & Board based on the executive’s knowledge and experience. Approval authority should be delegated to individual executives and not to committees to ensure accountability in the approval process. The following guidelines should apply in the approval/sanctioning of loans:
- Credit approval authority must be delegated in writing from the MD/CEO & Board (as appropriate), acknowledged by recipients, and records of all delegation retained in CRM.
- Delegated approval authorities must be reviewed annually by MD/CEO/Board.
- The credit approval function should be separate from the marketing/relationship management (RM) function.
- The role of Credit Committee may be restricted to only review of proposals i.e. Recommendations or review of bank’s loan portfolios.
- Approvals must be evidenced in writing, or by electronic signature. Approval records must be kept on file with the Credit Applications.
- All credit risks must be authorized by executives within the authority limit delegated to them by the MD/CEO. The “pooling” or combining of authority limits should not be permitted.
- Credit approval should be centralized within the CRM function. Regional credit centers may be established, however, all large loans must be approved by the Head .
- Credit and Risk Management or Managing Director/CEO/Board or delegated Head Office credit executive.
- The aggregate exposure to any borrower or borrowing group must be used to determine the approval authority required.
- Any credit proposal that does not comply with Lending Guidelines, regardless of amount, should be referred to Head Office for Approval.
- MD/Head of Credit Risk Management must approve and monitor any cross border exposure risk.
- Any breaches of lending authority should be reported to MD/CEO, Head of Internal Control, and Head of CRM.
Segregation of Duties
Banks should aim to segregate the following lending functions:
- Credit Approval/Risk Management
- Relationship Management/Marketing
- Credit Administration
The purpose of the segregation is to improve the knowledge levels and expertise in each department, to impose controls over the disbursement of authorized loan facilities and obtain an objective and independent judgment of credit proposals.
- Internal Audit
Banks should have a segregated internal audit/control department charged with conducting audits of all departments. Audits should be carried out annually, and should ensure compliance with regulatory guidelines, internal procedures, and Lending Guidelines and Bangladesh Bank requirements.
Preferred organizational structure & responsibilities
The appropriate organizational structure must be in place to support the adoption of the policies detailed in Section 1 of these guidelines. The key feature is the segregation of the Marketing/Relationship Management function from Approval / Risk Management /Administration functions. Credit approval should be centralized within the CRM function. Regional credit centers may be established, however, all applications must be approved by the Head of Credit and Risk Management or Managing Director /CEO Board or delegated Head Office credit executive.
The key responsibilities of the above functions are as follows:
Credit Risk Management (CRM)
- Oversight of the bank’s credit policies, procedures and controls relating to all credit risks arising from corporate/commercial institutional banking, personal banking, & treasury operations.
- Oversight of the bank’s asset quality.
- Directly manage all Substandard, Doubtful & Bad and Loss accounts to maximize recovery and ensure that appropriate and timely loan loss provisions have been made.
- To approve (or decline), within delegated authority, Credit Applications recommended by RM. Where aggregate borrower exposure is in excess of approval limits, to provide recommendation to MD/CEO for approval.
- To provide advice/assistance regarding all credit matters to line management/ RMs.
- To ensure that lending executives have adequate experience and/or training in order to carry out job duties effectively.
- Credit Administration:
- To ensure that all security documentation complies with the terms of approval and is enforceable.
- To monitor insurance coverage to ensure appropriate coverage is in place over assets pledged as collateral, and is properly assigned to the bank.
- To control loan disbursements only after all terms and conditions of approval have been met, and all security documentation is in place.
- To maintain control over all security documentation.
- To monitor borrower’s compliance with covenants and agreed terms and conditions, and general monitoring of account conduct/performance.
Relationship Management/Marketing (RM)
- To act as the primary bank contact with borrowers.
- To maintain thorough knowledge of borrower’s business and industry through regular contact, factory/warehouse inspections, etc. RMs should 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
- To highlight any deterioration in borrower’s financial standing and amend the borrower’s Risk Grade in a timely manner. Changes in Risk Grades should be advised to and approved by CRM.
- To seek assistance/advice at the earliest from CRM regarding the structuring of facilities, potential deterioration in accounts or for any credit related issues. Internal Audit/Control
- Conducts independent inspections annually to ensure compliance with Lending Guidelines, operating procedures, bank policies and Bangladesh Bank directives. Reports directly to MD/CEO or Audit committee of the Board.
This section outlines of the main procedures that are needed to ensure compliance with the policies contained in Section 1.0 of these guidelines.
The approval process must reinforce the segregation of Relationship Management/ Marketing from the approving authority. The responsibility for preparing the Credit Application should rest with the RM within the corporate/commercial banking department. Credit Applications should be recommended for approval by the RM team and forwarded to the approval team within CRM and approved by individual executives. Banks may wish to establish various thresholds, above which, the recommendation of the
Head of Corporate/Commercial Banking is required prior to onward recommendation to CRM for approval. In addition, banks may wish to establish regional credit centres within the approval team to handle routine approvals. Executives in head office CRM should approve all large loans. The recommending or approving executives should take responsibility for and be held accountable for their recommendations or approval. Delegation of approval limits should be such that all proposals where the facilities are up to 15% of the bank’s capital should be approved at the CRM level, facilities up to 25% of capital should be approved by CEO/MD, with proposals in excess of 25% of capital to be approved by the EC/Board only after recommendation of CRM, Corporate Banking and MD/CEO.
The Credit Administration function is critical in ensuring that proper documentation and approvals are in place prior to the disbursement of loan facilities. For this reason, it is essential that the functions of Credit Administration be strictly segregated from Relationship Management/Marketing in order to avoid the possibility of controls being compromised or issues not being highlighted at the appropriate level. Credit Administration procedures should be in place to ensure the following:
Security documents are prepared in accordance with approval terms and are legally enforceable. Standard loan facility documentation that has been reviewed by legal counsel should be used in all cases. Exceptions should be referred to legal counsel for advice based on authorization from an appropriate executive in CRM. Disbursements under loan facilities are only be made when all security documentation is in place. CIB report should reflect/include the name of all the lenders with facility, limit & outstanding. All formalities regarding large loans & loans to Directors should be guided by Bangladesh Bank circulars & related section of Banking Companies Act. All Credit Approval terms have been met.
- Custodial Duties:
Loan disbursements and the preparation and storage of security documents should be centralized in the regional credit centers. Appropriate insurance coverage is maintained (and renewed on a timely basis) on assets pledged as collateral. Security documentation is held under strict control, preferably in locked fireproof storage.
- Compliance Requirements:
All required Bangladesh Bank returns are submitted in the correct format in a timely manner. Bangladesh Bank circulars/regulations are maintained centrally, and advised to all relevant departments to ensure compliance. All third party service providers (value’s, lawyers, insurers, CPAs etc.) are approved and performance reviewed on an annual basis. Banks are referred to Bangladesh Bank circular outlining approved external audit firms that are acceptable.
Banks may wish to introduce incentive programs to encourage Recovery Unit (RU) Account Managers to bring down the Non Performing Loans (NPLs).
The table below shows an indicative incentive plan for RU account managers:
|Recovery as a % of|
Principal plus interest
| Recommended Incentive as % of net recovery amount|
|If CG 7-8||if written off|
|76% to 100%||1.00%||2.00%|
|51% t0 75%||0.50%||1.00%|
|20% to 50%||0.25%||0.50%|
For the probable solutions of the identified problems ensure better progress to NCC Bank in future, some necessary steps are recommended bellow on the basis of collected data, observation, expert staffs opinion and my knowledge and judgment.
Banks always contribute towards the economic development of a country. Compared with other banks NCC Bank Ltd. is contributing more by investing most of its funds in fruitful projects lending to increase in production of the country.
For Cash Credit Hypothecation loan procedure time should be decrease so that customers get loan easily and quickly. Document justification process can be easy if employ a lawyer so that quickly justify document and able to provide loan.
For Cash Credit Pledge’s repayment amount should be further invest and always careful so that customer can’t be able to default.
For SOD (Overdrafts) promote customers to do FDR, DPS so that customers take loan against FDR and DPS. It is fully secured for banks and customers give less interest from other loan.
For Loan Against House Building Credit officer should check all documents perfectly so that when will be needed it can be sold.
