There are a number of Private Commercial Banks, Nationalized Commercial Bank’s and foreign Banks operating their activities in Bangladesh. The NCC Bank it is one of them. For the future planning and the successful operation for achieving its prime goal in this current competitive environment this report can be a helpful guideline.
From the practical point of view I can declare boldly that I really have enjoyed my internship at NCC Bank from the first day. Moreover, internship program that is mandatory for my BBA program, although it is obviously helpful for my further thinking about my career.
Banks always contribute towards the economic development of a country. Compared with other Banks NCC Bank is contributing more by investing most of its funds in fruitful projects leading to increase in production of the country. It is obvious that right channel of Banking establish a successful network over the country and increases resources; will be able to play a considerable role in the portfolio of development in developing country like ours.
NCC Bank playing its leading role in socio-economic development of the country. Since inception NCC Bank has been rendering its Banking services with the needs of the nation to cope with the demands of people in the country. By doing many other works for state & society, NCC Bank has emerged as the pioneer of playing key role in the country.
For the probable solutions of the identified problems ensure better progress to NCC Bank in future, some necessary steps are recommended bellow on the basis of collected data, observation, expert staffs opinion and my knowledge and judgment.
- If the entire banking system is fully online on computerized system then they satisfy the customer by providing fast service with minimum service charge.
- NCC Bank should give more attention to advertisement for creating more attraction among its customers, which is helpful to collect more deposits and increase investments scope. That’s why bank should give emphasis of advertisement in various media like TV, News Paper, Internet and Billboard.
- NCC Bank should ensure networking system with its branches then it could easily transfer data within short time.
- Job description should be clarified and proper training facilities should ensure to improve the performance of bottom line management.
- NCC Bank should develop online banking system to compete with other commercial banks. It was observed that the officers of NCC Bank have to spend more time in preparing vouchers; this can be avoided by the automation.
- Credit Card and Automated Teller Machine (ATM) should be introduced as soon as possible because of present market demand of the customer and the educated customer now wants technology based banking.
- Attractive incentives packages for the exporters will help to increase the export and accordingly it will diminish the balance of payment gap of NCC bank. NCC Bank is to be concentrating in always monitoring the performances of its competitors in the field of foreign trade.
- Branches of NCC Bank are not sufficient as per demand of the people. So NCC Bank should setup new branches. They should also focus on the marketing aspects by informing the customers about its products and offering services charges. NCC Bank Ltd. Should focuses in their promotional activities on its marketable products.
