Bank Remittance (DD & PO)
Banks extended this facility to its customers by means of receiving money at one branch of the bank and making arrangement for payment at another branch within the country. Bank takes the risk of theft or loss and ensures payment to the beneficiary in exchange of a little bit benefit known as exchange or commission. Considering the nature of transaction, the mode of bank remittance may be categorized as under–
- Demand Draft (DD)
- Payment Order (PO)
- On line banking.
Demand Draft (DD):
DD is a negotiable instrument payable on demand to the payee on proper identification. It is an instruction issued by one branch containing an order to another branch to pay a certain sum of money to a certain person or order on demand. This instrument can be purchased by a customer from a particular bank branch for himself or for beneficiary and is handed over to the purchaser for delivery to the beneficiary.
Payment Order (PO):
This instrument is issued if the remittance is within a district in the same clearing house.
Cash section of any bank plays a vital role in general banking procedure, because it deals with the most liquid assets. There is several counters work simultaneously in cash section of Jamuna Bank, Motijheel Branch. There are two electronic counting machines by which a huge amount of cash money can be counted within a few minutes and it also ensure the zero percent counting machine. This section deals with all types of negotiable instrument and includes vault, used as the store of cash, instrument.
Function of cash department:
|Cash payment||Cash payment is made only against cheque. This is the unique function of the banking system which is known as “payment on demand”. It makes payment only against its printed valid cheque.|
|Cash Receipt||It receives deposits from the depositors in form of cash. So it is the “mobilization unit” of the banking system. It collects money only its receipt forms.|
Table 11: Function of cash department
Cash is packed according to the denomination after the banking hour. Notes are counted and packed in bundles and stamped with initial.
Allocation of currency:
Before starting the banking hour all tellers give requisition of money through “Teller cash proof sheet”. The head teller writes the number of the packet denomination wise in “Reserve sheet” at the end of the day; all the notes remained are recorded in the sheet.
Bills Collection and Clearing Section:
In modern banking the mechanism has become complex as far as smooth transaction and safety is concerned .Customer does pay and receive bill from their counterpart as a result of transaction. Commercial bank’s duty is to collect bills on behalf of its clients. Customer use demand draft, pay order and cheque etc. in financial transaction for safety and security purpose. Commercial bank’s duty is to collect these financial instruments on behalf of its client. The main function of this section is to collect instrument on behalf of the customer through Bangladesh Bank clearing house, Outside Bank Clearing (OBC), Inter Branch Clearing (IBC). Upon the receipt of the instrument this section examines the following things:
- Whether the paying bank within the Dhaka city.

- Whether the paying bank is its own branch.

Loan and Advances: Various loans and advances of Commercial Banks are:
v Cash Credit
v Loan against Trust Receipt
v House Building Loan
v Different retail credits
v Bank Overdraft
v Documentary bills purchased
The making of loans and advances has always been prominent and profitable function of a bank. Sanctioning credit to customers and others out of the funds at its disposal is one of the principal services of a modern bank. Advances near Jamuna Bank Ltd. are made in different natures, so, it can not afford to locate their funds for long periods.
A Classification of General Advance
A. Cash Credit (CC): A cash credit is a fluctuating account and is operated on the same way as a current a/c on which an O.D has been sanctioned. CC accounts are however maintained in a separate ledger. Primary securities under consideration in case of cash credit are goods, produce and merchandise. This is the most favorite borrowing by large commercial and industrial concerns. This is a permanent arrangement and the customer need not draw the sanctioned amount at once, but draw the amount as and when required. He can put bank any surplus amount, which he may find with him. Thus cash credit is an active and running account to which deposits and with drawls may be affected frequently. Interest is charged only for the amount withdraws and not for the whole amount charged. Cash credit arrangements are usually made against pledge or hypothecation of goods. Some times this facility also provided against personal security.
If the customer does not use the cash credit limit to the full extent, a commitment charge is made by the bank. This charge is imposed on the unutilized portion of cash credit only. Cash credit provides an elastic form of borrowing since the limit fluctuates according to the needs of the business. Cash credits are the most favorite mode of borrowing by large commercial and industrial concerns in Bangladesh.
B. Demand Loan: This is the fixed type of lending in its original form. The entire amount is paid to the debtor at on time, either in cash or by transfer to his current or savings bank account. No subsequent debit is ordinarily allowed except by way of interest, incidental charges, insurance premiums, expenses incurred for the protection of the security etc. A separate ledger is used for the maintenance of this account and as no subsequent withdrawal is allowed no cheque is also issued into this account. The following are the different types of demand loan:
- Secured Demand loan against stock, paper securities, goods produce and merchandise.
- Demand loan against gold.
C. Consumer Credit Schemes
With the steady development of the industrial and the service sectors in Bangladesh, the level of personal consumption has recorded progressive growth. To cater to the growing demand for consumer durables, Jamuna Bank Ltd. has launched the “Consumers’ Credit Scheme”,
D.

The purchase of bills of exchange drawn at a issuance i.e. for a certain period maturing on a future date and not payable on demand or sight is termed as discounting a bill and the charge recovered by bank for this is called “discount”. This is not very common in our country and is normally limited with the discount of foreign bills, inland bills are rarely discounted by our banks although it is very necessary for development of an organized market.
