Chapter  2

Evolution of Bank

The modern banking system is an evolutionary growth right from the Middle Ages. The genesis of modern bank lay in the functions performed by the Merchant with wide reputation commanding confidence far and near could easily finance domestic and foreign trade. The famous merchant houses established branches to trade centers at home and abroad began to use credit devises to accommodate their customers Jagath Seth, for example, had his branch office in London in the 18th century. Even earlier the indigenous hounds, which finance domestic trade in India was the innovations of the local merchants. In this credit operation in these credit operations in the ancient merchant houses lay the germs for the development of the important credit instrument lately known as bill of exchange and these merchants were virtually forerunner of the modern exchange banks.
The second ancestor of banks was the moneylender. People with surplus quite unaccustomed with money lending business and trade secrets could safely keep their surplus with the moneylender for investment by the letter on firms of a share of profit. The moneylender thus was an embryonic banker performing duel functions lending money and mobilization of savings. Exactly the modern bank does this as a lineal descendant of the ancient moneylender. The third in the chain of ancestors stood the goldsmith have safe vaults for the safe upkeep or their gold stocks. They were the embodiments of safety and security. Naturally, people with valuables and jewelers approached goldsmiths for safe custard. Initially the goldsmiths charged commission for safe upkeep. The practice later on changed as the goldsmith utilized the deposits for earning profits. A modern Bank then comes in itself the functions of all the there ancestors like the merchant it makes a specialty of financing foreign trade like the money lender collects savings and end like the goldsmith provides a convenient mechanism by which people can make payments to each other.

Development of banking in Bangladesh

Bank system was practiced in the Indian subcontinent from the ancient period. In Indian subcontinent merchants, goldsmith moneylenders were the primary bankers. During the Meghan
period banking and credit business was enchanted rapidly. Then the agency house of jagth Seth was similar to the merchant house of Lombardy Street. In 1700 AD “Hindustan Bank” was established as the first joint stock bank. In 1784 “Bengal Bank” and in 1786 General bank of India was lunched. Then both the bank absolved respectively in 1793 and 1832.
During the early period of nineteenth century in 1806 “Bank of Bengal” in 1840 “Bank of Bombay” and in 1843 “Bank of Madras” was established. These Banks were called Presidency Bank. Then in 1920 these three banks merged to “Imperial Bank of India”. In 1947 after the separation bank business in our country faced a severe disaster as non Muslim Bankers left to India. Then “Reserve bank of India” acted as the “Central Bank of Pakistan” in 1948 to re-build the Bank Business “State Bank of Pakistan” was established as central bank of Pakistan.
In 1971 Bangladesh became independent. After liberation “Bangladesh Bank” was automated with the assets and liabilities of former “State Bank of Pakistan”. It is the central bank of Bangladesh. During Pakistan period in our country there were 1090 branches of 12 commercial banks. Three foreign banks were also active with 14 branch offices. Before liberation 80% of banking activities of our country was controlled by Pakistan. Consequently Bangladesh traders and industrialists didn’t get notable help from the Commercial Banks. After liberation reformed the destroyed economy on 26th March 1972 the banking sector of Bangladesh was nationalized. After nationalization government of Bangladesh changed the entire bank to six banks which are Sonali Bank, Rupali Bank, Janata bank, Agrani Bank, Public Bank & Uttara bank. Their role in development of trade and commerce of Bangladesh as well as in the development of economy.

Banking structure in Bangladesh

Banking system of Bangladesh comprises of different types of bank and financial institutions. The name of our central bank is “Bangladesh Bank” it is the director and regulator of banking system of Bangladesh. Banking structure in Bangladesh is briefly described below.

• Bangladesh Bank is the central bank of Bangladesh. It is director of money market in Bangladesh. It regulates the activities of other banks of Bangladesh through credit control, exchange control etc.

• Commercial bank both the public and private sectors of commercial bank are active in Bangladesh. There are 4 nationalized commercial banks- Sonali Bank, Rupali Bank, Agrani Bank, janata bank.

• In 1983 priority gives on private sector of banking business. As a result two nationalize bank was handed over to private sector, which are Pubali and Uttara bank and now Rupali bank is supposed to hand over in the private sector.

• Now in our country a large number of private banks are doing banking business.

Hierarchy Analysis

Banking sector has a vital role to play in the economic activities and development of any country. In Bangladesh, the banking sector dominates the financial sector and macroeconomic management largely depends on the performance of the banking sector. In the 80’s for the first time a number of banks in the private sector were allowed. Subsequently in the mid 90’s some more banks in private sector also commenced operations. Finally, in 1999, 3rd generation of private sector banks was given permission to operate.
At present there are 51 scheduled banks operating all over the country. Out of these, 9 are state-owned (including five specialized banks), 29 are private commercial banks and the rest 13 are foreign commercial banks.

L/C procedure:

The various steps involved in the operation of credit are described as follows

 The importer and exporter have contract before a L/C has been issued.
 The importer applies for a L/C from his banker known as the issuing bank. He may use his credit lines.
 The issuing bank opens the L/C that is channeled through its overseas correspondent bank, known as advising bank.

The correspondent bank sends the L/C is commonly referred to as advising bank. The advising bank simply advises the L/C without any obligation on its part. However, the advising bank shall take reasonable care to check the apparent authenticity of the credit that it advises.

As both L/C cover the same goods the back to back credit must be issued with identical terms to the muster L/C, except that the credit amount, unit price if any are smaller. The expiry date under the back-to-back credit is earlier while the latest shipment date may have to be advanced. The bank issuing back-to-back credit will obtain repayment through muster credit, which is deposited to the issuing bank of the back-to-back credit. The bank must try to maintain control of the documents and hold them after payment to the supplier pending receipt of its customer’s invoices and present the documents itself for payment under the muster credit in favor of its customer.

Advantage and disadvantage of L/C

Problems of foreign exchange remittance

• Every year many exporter collect cash assistance by showing false documents to Bangladesh bank. As a result much currency is going away of the country that is a major problem for import and foreign currency of the country.
• As still there Is no remittance with many countries taking this opportunities one class of broker are benefited, dollars are going away of the country, the rate of exchange of Tk. Are decreases.

Solutions of cash remittance problems

• Adequate measure have been taken for quick remittance, exchange warehouse have to set in each country where Bangladeshi are available.
• Cash remittance may be a profitable sources of foreign income in the absence of others export business.
• Adequate rewards have to be given all those foreign Bangladeshi who send their money through remittance.

Uttara Bank Ltd. is the 2nd generation bank and providing its service since many years. Since its establishment it has provided so many banking services to the people of this country, but it need to walk with the concept of modern banking system. Today the 3rd generation banks are providing the modern banking services such as- internet banking, SMS banking, debit and credit card facilities, ATMs services, electronic banking, corporate banking, retail banking and SME banking etc. whereas Uttara bank are still providing their traditional banking service. I think it should go more effectively to the general people of the country with the concept of modern banking system. Now a day it is very difficult for any bank or financial institute to run its operation smoothly because of hard competition. So to survive in the market it should come out from its traditional concept and provide modern banking service.
