Types of Credit

Grouping on the basis of time: On the basis of components of time, bank credit may be categorized into three heads.

Continuous loans:

These are the loans with no fixed repayment schedule but have a date at which it is renewable on acceptable performance of the customers. Continuous loan mostly contains-Cash credit (hypothecation, pledge) and OD.

Loan

In case of loan the banker advances a lump sum for a certain period at an agreed rate of interest. The full amount is paid on an instance either in cash or by crediting in his current account, which he can pull at any time.

Cash Credit

The objective of cash credit is to encounter working capital requirement of traders, agriculturalists and businesspersons. Cash credit in factual sense is in contrast to pledge of goods. Cash credit is also allowable counter to hypothecation of goods. In case of hypothecation the title and custody of the goods continue with the borrower. It is because of the hypothecation contract bank can take control of the goods hypothecated if the borrower fails to pay.

Interest rate: 12%-14%.

Recommence Arrangement: it is renewed in intermittent basis (yearly).

Overdraft

Overdrafts are those drawings which are permissible by the banker in additional to the balance in the current account up to a definite amount for certain period as agreed upon. These advances are protected. Any deposit in the OD account is preserved as refund of loan. Interest is charged on balance remaining on quarterly basis. Overdraft facilities are usually approved to businessmen for growth of their business against the securities of stock-in-trade, stocks, debenture, fixed deposit, promissory notes, life insurance policies etc.

Analysis:

If we study loan, overdraft, bill purchased and discounted and cash credit from the above discussion we can see certain resemblances. Like in all case we can see the amount of credit is growing that means wealth of the bank is growing as well. From the graph if we look at the amount from 2008-2010 in four cases it can be seen that they focus more on loan than any other credit scheme. After loan NCC bank focuses more on overdraft than cash credit and after that they keep a good situation on bill purchased & discounted.

2008-20092009-2010
Loan4,075,210,5775,826,447,602
Cash Credit2,172,092,2102,866,442,248
Overdraft731,103,0382,409,134,460
Bill purchased & discounted748,042,3821,650,144,896

Here, it can be seen that bank invested more on loan but in case of cash credit (2009-2010) they focused more on cash credit than the OD. After overdraft they focused on bill purchased & discounted and they gave emphasis to this side least than the other three sides.

 

Credit Ratification Authority:

Credit choices are core of all credit mechanisms. Usually branch manager and the credit in-charge of a branch are held accountable for the assessment of a loan application.

After receiving all the appropriate information from the branch the head office credit division delivers the credit memo to the credit committee. Credit committee of NCCBL is consisted of Managing Director and other top-level executives that is, Deputy Managing Directors and EVPs. If credit committee is persuaded about the worth of the application then it is sent to the broad of directors. The board is last authority to accept or drop an application. The entire procedure takes a month or more. In NCCBL broad meeting follows one time in all week.

 

Pre-disbursement Compliance:

Permission from the appropriate court is necessary. Lien can be made on moveable goods only such as raw materials, finished goods, shares debentures etc.

Pledge

Pledge is also like lien but here bank enjoys more right. Bank can sell the property without the intervention of any court, in case of default on loan, But for such selling proper notice must be given to the debtor. To create pledge, physical transfer of goods to the bank is must.

Hypothecation

In this charge creation method physically the goods remained in the hand of debtor. But documents of title to goods are handed over to the banker. This method is alsocalled equitable charge. Since the goods are in the hand of the borrower, bank inspects the goods regularly to judge it s quality and quantity for the maximum safety of loan.

Mortgage:

Mortgage is transfer of interest in specific immovable property. Mortgage is created on the immovable property like land, building, plant etc. Most common type of mortgage is legal mortgage in which ownership is transferred to the bank by registration of the  mortgage deed. Another method called equitable mortgage is also used in bank for creation of charge. Here mere deposit of title to goods is sufficient for creation of charge. Registration is not required. In both the cases, the mortgage property is retained in the hank of borrower.

Trust Receipt

Generally goods imported or bought by bank’s financial assistance are held by bank as security. Bank may release this lien / pledge these goods against trust receipt. This means that the borrower holds goods in trust of the bank; trust receipt arrangement is needed when the borrower is going to sell these goods or process it further but borrower has no sufficient fund to pay off the bank loan. Here proceeds from any part of these goods are deposited to this bank.

Advance against Work-Order

Advances can be made to a client to perform work order.

Disbursement should be made only after completion of documentation formalities and fulfillment of arrangements by the client to undertake the contract.

Findings and recommendations:

Findings:

  • NCC Bank emphasize about marketing. Like youngster a/c is a new product of NCC Bank, for school and college going children. If they go to schools and colleges, the children could know about this product.
  • NCC Bank Debit Card didn’t have the facility to shopping somewhere. Other bank Debit Card has this facility.
  • NCCBL Doesn’t charges money to the clients to print out their balance in deposit account and loans. So, a client can come every day to ask for the print out for his/her balance, this will be a loss for the banks. However other banks charges for this kind of activities. NCCBL could also charge money and make profit by this.
  • Lack of updated products is also a demerit of the general banking. The bank provides only some limited traditional services.

Recommendations:

  • They should update their website.
  • There is a noticeable absence of the bank from mainstream media, with hardly any well- planned promotional activities.
  • There should be more ATM Booths.
  • With other Debit Cards people can do their shopping, but NCC Bank doesn’t have this facility in their debit card.
  • NCCBL must pursue a strong and effective recruitment system so that right people are recruited at the right job. It is worth spending more on attractive qualified human resources rather than recruiting staffs by reference.
  • Online banking should be updated to attract more clients.
  • Should give more concentration on decoration part of the branch, and take initiatives to maintain the line in cash counter. They can provide token to each client to maintain the line.
  • To compete with other private banks it must have to introduce new products regularly and exercise those products to capture a large number of clients in the market.
  • Communication System: Ensure proper communication system and maintenance of file & machineries like phone, computer, fax, and photocopier. Loan sanctioning process should be more quickly. Office should be fully decorated to attract people to come into it. ATM network and any branch clearing facility should be introduced.
  • Human Development: Development of human resources should be ensured to increase efficiency in work. More employment training and development program should be taken by controlling authority to ensure employee competence in order to cope with the changing financial markets.

NCC Bank makes a strong position through it’s varies activities. Its number of clients, amount of deposit and investment money increases day by day. This bank already has shown impressive performance in investment.

Consumer are more or less satisfied with the present services of the bank now should think to start new services and take different types of marketing strategy to get more customers in this competition market of banking.

At last it can be said that, NCC Bank Ltd. is growing fast and its contribution in our economy is also considerable. I hope that NCC Bank will wide its services by expanding its branch all over the country. Success in banking business largely depends on effective and efficient loan services. The more income from the credit operation the more will be profit of the bank. Foreign trade operation and general banking both section of the bank played a significant role in the overall business where the potential customers are always there.

It can be easily said that NCC Bank is a progressive Commercial Bank in private sector. It creates new opportunities for its clients as well as gives customized services and maintains harmonious banker-client relationship. It contributes towards formation of national capital, growth of savings & investment in trade, commerce & industrial sectors.
