Current Deposit

In deposit terminology, the term Current Deposit refers to a deposit to a bank account or financial institution without a specified maturity date. These types of Current Deposit account generally only earn demand deposit interest.

Current Deposit Example:

Current Deposit will often be made into a bank or other financial institution’s account in the local currency. The deposit will then generally be made available to the customer for withdrawal at any time and without an early withdrawal penalty. Funds are typically made immediately available to the customer for withdrawal by writing a check. Such Current Deposit accounts are generally used for businesses that have a need for issuing checks to pay employee salaries and bonuses, as well as to provide cash for inventories and other such business expenses. The bank or financial institution where the Current Deposit account is held usually pays out interest on the funds periodically, such as monthly or quarterly.


The special characteristic of a current account are as follows-

  • The primary objective of current account is to save big customers as big businessman, joint stock companies, private limited companies, public limited companies etc from the risk of handling cash themselves.
  • The cost of providing current account facilities is considerable to the bank since they undertake to make payments and collects the bills, drafts, cheques for any number of times daily. The bank therefore does not pay interest on current deposit while on the other hand some banks charge for incidental charges on such account.
  • For opening of a current account minimum deposit of Taka 10,000 is required.
  • Introductory reference is also required for opening of such account.

Trend Analysis of Deposit

The deposit for the year 2010 is 102471.83 million and in the year 2011 is 128215.97 million. In the year 2011 deposit amount is increased by Tk. 25744.14 million than the previous year. The main reasons for increasing deposit in 2011 are to reduce of the government securities and bond. NBL deposit increased during the year 2009 by Tk. 16646.3 million and stood at Tk. 76834.13 million as at 31 December 2009. In 2009 the investment is increased from the previous year.

There was no investment made by subsidiary and Off-Shore Banking Unit. From the analysis of last five years investment scenario, in 2007 the investment increased almost 18.86% rather than the previous year.

From the deposit trend graph we see that the deposit of NBL is in increasing trend in case of amount. But the percentage change from year to year has fluctuated year by year. The deposit increase 18.86% in 2007, 25.49% in 2008, 27.66% in 2009, 33.37% 2010 and in 2011 rather than the previous year and 25.12% increase in the last year. These percentage changes are in the decreasing trend from the previous year. Due to banking supervision and also bank’s internal affairs, lack of proper projection and so on, this bank is in the serious trouble for decreasing trend in the deposit in the year 2010. Deposit is one of the major earning prospects of the bank but this bank’s investment interest income decreased in the year 2010 and this affected the net operating income of the bank.
