Historical Background of Shahjal Islami Bank Limited

In August 1974, Bangladesh signed the charter of Islami Development Bank and committed itself to reorganize its economic and financial system as per Islamic Shariah. In January 1981, the then Present of Peoples Republic of Bangladesh while addressing the 3rd Islamic Summit Conference held at Makkah and Taif suggested, “The Islamic countries should develop a separate banking system of their own in order to facilitate their trade and commerce.” This statement of the president indicated favorable attitude of the government of the people’s republic of Bangladesh towards establishing Islamic Banking in our country. Earlier in November 1980, Bangladesh Bank sent a representative to study the working of several Islamic banks abroad. In November 1982, a delegation of IDB visited Bangladesh and showed keen interest to participate in establishing a joint venture Islami bank in the private sector. They found a lot of work had already been done and Islamic banking was in a ready form for immediate introduction.

Two professional bodies of Islamic Economics Research Bureau and Bangladesh Islamic Banker’s Association made significant contributions towards introduction of Islamic banking in the country. They came forward to provide training on Islamic banking to top bankers and economists to fill- up the vacuum of leadership for the future Islamic banks in Bangladesh. Their professional activities were reinforced by a number of Muslim entrepreneurs working under the aegis of the then Muslim Businessmen Society.

Elements of Islamic Bank

Prohibition of Interest

The traditional capitalist banking system depends on interest. It receives interest for providing loans and pays interest for taking loans. The spread between these two interests is the source of its profit. But according to Islamic Shariah all types of interest is banned. Islamic Bank does not carry on business of interest and it completely avoids the transaction of interest.

Investing in Halal Business

Islamic Shariah has banned the business of haram goods. For example Islam not only forbids the drinking of alcohol but also banned the business of alcohol/ therefore Islamic Bank does not get any harem business and only do halal business.

Investment Based on Profit

After departing from interest, the alternative ways of income for Islamic Bank are investment and profit. Thus Islamic Bank gives up of any transaction of interest and makes investments based on profit. Bank distributes its profit to its depositors and shareholders.

Halal paths and procedures

Islamic Shariah also rejects any haram path or process in case of a halal business. Therefore Islamic Banking system only allows the halal path and procedures of halal business.

  • The operating hours of Shahjalal Islami Bank is convenient to all customers. But few Govt, officer said it is not suitable operating hours for them.

 

Recommendations

Based on my three months observation in the bank, I achieved lot of practical knowledge. Besides From my survey I identified some problems regarding service quality &try to give some recommendation to improve service quality.

  • Sometime service quality shows the company overview or product quality so they need to think about it.
  • Shahjalal Bank should give prompt service to all customer
  • Shahjalal Bank should give some exclusive offering that retains their clients.
  • The operating hours of Shahjalal bank doesn’t match with govt.officer .So they should look into this matter.
  • They should increase number of ATM booth.
  • Bank should introduce consumer credit scheme.

 

 

Conclusion

The performance of a Banks today competitive business is important. Just few years ago the number of bank was very small. So the competition was not a strong as its today. Things have changed with the emergence of many new banks now the Customers have option to take the one that the best so the current banking business scenario is simply highly competitive.

After doing this exploratory research I learn many things about banking activities and its affects on client perception. From my research and analysis I got lot of result about the Customers’ Perception of Service Quality of Shahjalal Islami Bank Limited Dhanmondi Branch. I identified that many of the respondents from my sample aware about the service quality of Banking activities. But in case of client retaining it has no significant affect on clients. On the other hand in some case it affects clients to choose different schemes of banking services.
