It records the profit & loss A/C and statement of assets and liabilities by applying of book-keeping. The functions of it are theoretical & computerized based. NBL Chowgacha Branch records its accounts daily, weekly, and monthly every record.

Basically Accounts Department is not alone. Accounts department is a mix of as follows:

1. Cash
2. Transfer
3. Clearing


Sk. Maruful Islam (Junior officer) is active as a cash in charge. In fact, he maintains cash related all activities and Md. Joynal Abedin (Junior officer) & SM Kamran Hossain (HR Contract Cash) assist him to accomplish it accurately.  This section of any branch plays very significant role in Accounts Department. Because, it deals with most liquid assets of the NBL. This section receives cash from depositors and pay cash against cheque, draft, PO, and pay in slip over the counter. Every bank must have a cash counter where customer withdrawn and deposit their money. When the valued client’s deposit their money at the cash counter they must have to full fill the deposit slip his/her own, then they sing as the depositor option’s then they deposit their money through cash officer at the cash counter.

After paying this kind’s of slip, the valued client waits for the deposit slip book outside of the cash counter. The Deposit officer  Zulfikar Ali Haider (Junior officer) deposit the money in their account through computer software, while the depositors account credited, then he puts a seal in the deposit slip.

Receiving Cash:

Any people who want to deposit money will fill up the deposit slip and give the form along with the money to the cash officer over the counter. The cash officer counts the cash and compares with the figure written in the deposit slip. Then he puts his signature on the slip along with the ‘cash received’ seal and records in the cash receive register book against A/C number.
At the end of the procedure, the cash officer passes the deposit slip to the counter section for posting purpose and delivers duplicate slip to the clients.

SWOT Analysis of NBL:


  • NBL has the strong good will in the banking sector.
  • To be old Private bank, it has a strong experience in this sector.
  • One of the largest no. of branches bank in the country.
  • They are stronger based on capital and asset.
  • Highest no. of clients.


  • IT section is weak comparatively to others as they are using old and backdated software.
  • Sometimes they have to pay extra time due to not having it expert in different branches.
  • ATM card and booth is the great week point of them.
  • Refreshment facility is poor where customer is the key to bring deposit.
  • All are not skilled highly.


  • Due to have a strong brand image they may establish different industry or firm. For instance housing, consumer products etc.
  • They may launch e-banking, mobile banking and strong online banking.
  • Branches as well as booth they may set up in different areas.
  • Expanding the business in abroad.


  • Rivals are increasing day by day.
  • Fast service is more challenging compare to others.
  • Political unexpected activities.
  • Share marker instability.
  • Rules and regulations are changed any time ordering from central bank.
  • Utilization of modern software.


  • It can be said that they are the lower position in order to ATM booth.
  • On line banking is not strong.
  • They don’t have ATM debit card which is very popular now a days.
  • Most of the cases employee only concerns about only his or her job.
  • Marketing policy is not so strong in banking sector like others.
  • Comparatively less facility is given to the employees rather than other banks.


  • Number of booth should be increased to fulfill the demand of the customers.
  • They are using A to Z software in banking activities which is old. They may use modern software to provide service faster to the clients.
  • Online banking should be improved. They say online but it is not actually where people faces lots of problem for that.
  • They can start mobile banking what already launched in other banks.
  • In the branch there is no proper space to transaction at Chowgacha branch of NBL. So head office should supervise this condition and enlarge the space.
  • Islamic banking is the popular term what they may run to increase profitability.


NBL always try to increase their profitability through different service reaching to the customer hand. To be more near to the customer they are increasing their branches as well as services. And that’s why their no. of branches is more than 145.  More services providing more easily how can be done always they analyze about that. To be more than 27 years experience, they have the great advantage to journey a long path.  They believe that customers’ satisfaction is the indicator of wealth maximization. Within three months I got lots of opportunity to achieve experience how to deal with the clients what the behavior should be an official which is not possible gain from the book or in the class.  It was great job in the banking environment. I got a real communication skill in the office to expand my confidence level. Sometimes people become so crazy and angry but we have to tolerate and make them understand though they are wrong. So this way of behave may help in future on job career.
