Internship Report on Current Service Quality of NCC Bank Limited

1.1 Introduction

Financial Institutions have historically have been distinguished by the types of services they provide. In recent years Financial Institutions have diversified their services by creating new subsidiaries that perform additional services or by merging with other types of financial institutions. The result has been the creation of financial conglomerates, composed of various units offering specialized services. Diversification also offers benefits to financial institutions.

National credit and commerce Bank Limited was incorporated in Bangladesh as a banking company. I worked in the account opening desk, clearing and loan department of NCCBL. This gives me the opportunity to know more on different aspects of the company. So, I prepare my internship report on overall banking system of NCCBL.


Every work is done to gain some particular objectives. My Internship program also contains certain important objectives. They are given below

1. To understand the Banking business in Bangladesh. How Banking transactions Take place.

2. To observe the authorities, tasks & responsibilities of the bankers.

3. The rules and regulations of private commercial Banks

3. To know the background of the NCCBL

4. To know the Overall Banking system of NCCBL

5. To understand the Financial and Accounting techniques of NCCBL. In fact this is the prime objective and I have chosen this as the topic of my report.

6. To have the idea about the communication between the Branch office and Head office.
7. To better understand about the foreign exchange activities.

8. To learn the Banking Laws.

9. To appraise the total achievements and success of NCCBL

1.3 Methodology of the study

This report is prepared by two sources:-

1. Primary Sources.
2. Secondary Sources.

Primary Sources: Basically this type of Sources includes:
Face-to-face conversation with the respective officers and staff of the Branch.
Informal conversation with the clients.
Relevant file and documents study as provided by the concerned officers.
Practical work exposures from the different desks of the department of the branch.

Secondary Sources: Secondary data were collected in the following ways:

Data gathered within the organization itself.
Data gathered from Texts
Internet sources.
General reports
Annual reports
Official documents
 Credit manual and foreign exchange manual of the bank.

1.4 Scope of the study

In spite of limitation I also got some facility to complete my internship report. National Credit and Commerce Bank Ltd. (NCCBL) is operating widely with 64 branches all over the Bangladesh. This report is strictly confined NCCBL’s operation in Dhaka. The report is based on the observation and studies during my internship period in Motijheel Main branch. Since my working place was the Motijheel Main branch, which is not the authorized dealer to perform the foreign exchange activity so, I cannot include it in my report. According to the study at first I will focus on the company’s background, management style, present status and specially the products of NCCBL etc. I tried to focus on the Bank’s functional areas such as general banking, accounts, credits & advance and card division of NCCBL. The employees those who held a responsible post in the entire department helped me a lot. They gave me all essential data and conversation with me. This bank has given me the opportunity to observe the banking environment for the first time indeed. I got an opportunity to gather experience by working in the different departments of the branch under the supervision of different departmental heads. National Credit and Commerce Bank Ltd. (NCCBL) is a well-reputed bank in Bangladesh. Within a very short period of time it has been recognized as one of the leading private sector bank.

1.5 Limitations

The first obstacle was that they would not provide any remuneration even for doing internship in NCCBL. It is not an easy task to concentrate hard without any benefit.
As the officers are very busy with their daily work, they could provide very little time.
Limitation of time was one of the most important factors that shortened the present study. Due to time limitation many aspects could not be discusses in the present study.
Confidentiality of data was another important barrier that was faced during the conduct of this study. Every organization has their own secrecy that is not revealed to others. While collecting data on NCCBL, personnel did not disclose enough information for the sake of confidentiality of the organization.
Sufficient books, publications and figures were not available. If these limitations were not been there, the report would have been more useful.
Rush hours and business was another reason that acts as an obstacle while gathering data.
Since there is no strong marketing department in this bank, marketing procedures and promotional strategies are not enriched by information.

However, omitting this, the report will help us understand the whole customer oriented departments of the bank.


Overview of the Bank

2.1 Banking Sector in Bangladesh

Definition of Bank:
Whoever, being an individual firm, company or corporation generally a deal in the business of money and credit is called a bank. Banker means a person transacting the business of accepting for the purpose of lending or investment of deposit of money from the public repayable on demand or otherwise and withdrawal by cheques, drafts or otherwise. The purpose of banking is to ensure transfer of money from surplus unit to deficit units. Banks in all countries work as the repository of money. The general public deposit money in the bank for safe custody as well as to earn interest on it.

Entrepreneurs try to obtain money from the banks as project loan for long term investment. They also obtain working capital from the bank to run their business smoothly. Banking sector these owe a great deal to the deposit holders on the one hand and the entrepreneurs on the other. They are expected to play the role of friend, philosopher and guide for the deposit holders and as wells entrepreneurs.

Since liberation, Bangladesh passed through fragile phases of development in the Banking sector. Some banks were nationalized in the post liberation period to save the institutions and the interest of the depositors. Those handing the banking sector have borne the burden of putting banks on reliable footings. Despite all that was done, some elements of irregularities appeared. With the assertion of the role of the Central Bank, Bangladesh Bank started adopting measures for putting banking institutions on right track. Yet the performance of public sector management of banks left some negative effects in the money market in particular and the economy in general. The agility among the borrowers manipulates the banking sector as a whole. In effect, a default culture among other effects appeared on the scene.

The opening of private and foreign participants to the banking sector was intended to obtain desirable results from banking. The authorization of private bank was designed to

create competition among the banks and competition in the form of efficiency within and the productivity in enterprises funded by banks. Unfortunately, for the people at large banking sector is yet to obtain the credit for efficiency, curability and growth.

The clever, among the user of banking services, have influenced the management of bands, for obtaining short term and long-term loans. They sometimes showed inflated equity to get money for investment in business and industry. Few diverted their loan money to purposes different from the loan proposal, and invested in non profitable units have failed to repay their loans to the banks. For this reason new entrepreneurs are not getting capital while defaulting entrepreneurs have started obtaining either relief in the form of rescheduling of the repayment program of additional invest able money for diversified units.

Banking in Bangladesh Perspective
Banking is the backbone of national economy; all sorts of economic and financial activities revolve round the axis of the bank.

Circumstances being such, it becomes imperative to find out the role of banks now playing in the country and analyze its operational aspects so as to ascertain the importance of this delicate financial sector and its overall impact on our national economy.

Growth and development of the banking sector of the country.

The nit amount payable or receivable as the case may be, is settled through an account kept with the controlling bank (Bangladesh Bank / Sonali Bank). In Clearing Section cheque, dividend warrants and other forms of financial instruments, which are easy for encashment, are received. The clearing department sends these instruments to the Clearing House of the Bangladesh Bank for collection. As soon as cash is received the amount is deposited in the client’s account.

OBC (Outward Bill for Collection)
If a party gives a check to a branch of NCCBL to collect money form a branch of another bank which is not situated in the clearing house then the NCCBL collect money through OBC. In case of OBC two ways exist to collect money from another bank.

In the first way, the receiving branch of NCCBL send the check with forwarding letter to the branch of another bank which name are included in the check. After receiving the check that branch of the bank send a D.D. to another branch of their bank which are situated in the same clearing house of payee’s branch of NCCBL. After that they issue pay order to the name of payee’s branch name and send the check to the clearing house and NCCBL collect this check through clearing h9use and credit the payee’s account.

In the second way, NCCBL payee’s branch sent the check to another branch of NCCBL which are situated in the same area of another bank’s branch (which
name are included in the check). Then the receiving branch of NCCBL collect the amount of check through outward clearing by clearing house of those areas and issue a credit advise to the payee’s branch. After that, payee’s branch credits the payee’s account.

The Internship Position and Responsibilities

5.1The Internship Position and Responsibilities

I have worked mainly of the General banking Section. Sometimes I have worked in the foreign exchange, money gram, Loan and advances department and cash counter. Mainly general banking section I worked account opening, deals with the clients about to open a new account, Forms of Deposit. Actually in our country the bank deposits take three different forms.

• Current or Demand Deposit.
• Saving Deposit
• Fixed Deposit

Fill up the Form
The person desiring to open a current account with the bank has to make application in the prescribed form. This form must be properly filled up and signed by the applicants.

My suggestion
Sometimes I suggested to the customers how to operations of the account, according to the NCCBL rules to opening and operating the account. After the above formalities are over, the banker opens an account in the name of applicant. Generally the minimum amount to be deposited initially is taka one thousand for opening a saving account and taka five thousand for current account.

Deposit Book
With a view to facilitate the receipt of credit items paid in by a customer, the bank will provide him /her pay-in- slip either loose or in book forms. The customer has to fill up the pay in slip at the time of depositing the money with the bank. The cashier with his/her initials and stamps will return the counterfoil to the customer on the receipt of the money.

To facilitate withdrawals and payments to third parties by the customer, the bank will also provide a chequebook to the customer. But it is noted that to get a chequebook, the customer has to dully fill up the cheque requisition slip to the banker.

Some days I was worked in Loan and advanced department. Mainly loan and advanced department worked deals with client about the loan conditions of the NCCBL.

5.2 A bank officer’s contribution to improve the customer service
In this modern era of banking the bank officers needs to be more efficient and should work effectively in order providing quality service to the customer. But on the other hand it is a matter of fact that bank officers often busy with so many things that sometimes they fail to satisfy the customer. I have worked in different division and department of NCCBL. As a marketing major student I can make some possible solution on how should a bank officer make contribution to improve the quality or satisfying the customer service.

What is Customer Service?
Customer service is meeting the needs and expectations of the customer as defined by the customer.
‘Meeting the needs and expectations of the customer’ means bankers know what their customers want, what they expect, and bank is providing that to them on a consistent basis. And to know what the customers want, bank officers have to ask them!

‘As defined by the customer ’ is the key phrase because it says if the customer does not perceive bankers as offering good customer service, then they are not. The customer is the judge here; no matter how good the internal records claim officers are, the customer is the only voice worth listening to. So in order to have an effective customer service
initiative, bankers must know what their customers want, provide it to them on a consistent basis, and ask them how bank officers are doing.

Bank officers and their organization can benefit from customer service in the following ways:
 Minimize stress: If bank officers are dealing with customers directly, especially unhappy ones there will be a certain amount of stress with each episode. It can be reduced if they have a systematic way for dealing with the customers.
 Higher efficiencies: when bankers focus their efforts on the areas that directly affect customer satisfaction, they can utilize their resources more efficiently. An effective customer service programs provides a plan for working on those areas most important to the customers and reduces the deviation which may distract them and the organization from focusing on these areas.
 Increased morale and satisfaction: when bankers are working on those areas that mean the most to the customers and to the success of the organization, then they might share a common vision and meaning with the entire organization.
 Survival: effective customer service becomes the cause of the bankers staying in business. With growing competition, there are plenty of suppliers eager for business and the opportunity to satisfy customers. If they are not part of it, then they may not stay in business for a long.
 Cost Effective: According to an authentic survey, it costs five times more to gain a new customer. Some survey also proves the fact that with just a 5% increase in
customer retention, a firm can raise its profitability by 25% and in some cases as much as 85%. Similar studies also show the longer a company keeps a customer, the more money it will make. This happens because consumers spend slowly at first, but with succeeding years of good experiences, they will spend increasingly more.
Why effective customer service important?
Because of customers are important for banking sectors. Banking business is standing on the basis of customer’s deposits and loans.
Why important?

Bankers have to have their customers to earn money. If bankers do not give them good services they will not come to the organization again and they will persuade others not to come to the bank. So by giving bad service they will lose their customers and also future customers, but by giving good service they can get new customers and never lose any customer. (Ref: Soroosh Karimi.
It is a matter of fact that… it costs 5 times as much to bring in a new customer, than to keep an existing one. When people become customer, they want to be loyal. So, why do they leave? Most of the time, they leave because of small oversights and lack of attention to plain and old customer service. (By Adrian Miller)
Customer Service as a Competitive Advantage
Fierce competition demands more and more innovations to differentiate organizations from one another. With technology available to virtually all organizations today, traditional feature and cost-benefit advantages no longer offer for a sustainable competitive advantage. More and more companies are turning to quality of service to make themselves prominent from their competitors. They are talking to their customers to determine what is most important to them and how they can further add value to them.

Each organization’s customer service plan must be customized to suit its own needs, but, more importantly, it must satisfy the needs of its customers. There is no hard and fast rule for an effective customer service programe; each one will have its own distinct differences. However, there are some common steps that we need to consider when setting up our programe.
Following up if they were able to get what they wanted make them aware that we care.

10 (Ten) tips for customer services:

1. Hire people who have a service attitude. Some people simply enjoy serving others, their organizations, and even their communities. The spirit of service dominates their personality. This attitude of service has nothing to do with money or background, and people who have this attitude are not necessarily the most outgoing or bubbly. This type of person will move our business forward. These people make the best salespeople as well.

2. Treat each customer as an experience while dealing with them. But bankers have a few short moments with customers. Bankers do not have time to complain about anything else. Ask bankers, “How to be better experienced?” Is it a better option to treat customer by name and how can bankers ask without being too aggressive? How to control the environment in this company? How it is affecting their 5 senses? Exceed their expectations just a little with their senses and with bankers attitude to serve and please and it might create a memorable and compelling experience.

3. Regularly inform all the employees about what’s going on in the company. Employees need to know what’s happening. What new products are we offering? When will they be available? What kind of advertising will take place in the next month? Will any physical changes be happening in
offices? Will new branches be added?

4. Make every decision with the customer in mind. Employees need to know some questions such as, “Do the customers like what they are doing?” and “Would the customers like different type of promotion”

5. Make the customers an agenda item at every staff meeting. Present their point of view and ask these questions: What would the customer think of this? Would this move be fair to them? How to serve the customers better or differently?

6. Empower the employees to do the right thing. And try not to hold it against them if the situation doesn’t turn out perfectly. That means giving employees the power to do whatever has to be done to make a customer’s experience a WOW experience.

7. Continually ask employees how to improve and add value. If they do not keep asking and pushing, it may start to slip behind the competition. Customers have more than one choice and the competition is aggressively marketing to them. They know what is being offered by others. Be ahead of the curve by asking what can be done to add value to the customer’s experience with the company.

8. Create an atmosphere of excellence. Let it be known that everything company employees do has to be the best. One thing to remember that winning organizations are always raising the bar. If it is pushing to do better than yesterday, everything will be left in the dust of the competition.

9. Continually do the unexpected. Have the reputation for doing the unexpected, and customers will always expect something different and exciting from the company. This doesn’t mean that bankers have to have dancing clowns in the lobby, but having the same lollipops that everyone else gives out is not at all unexpected. Do something different. These are the things that customers talk about.
10. Never let an untrained employee have customer contact. Employees representing the company, and the brand. Working with customers is the most important thing they will do. Give them the tools necessary by giving them adequate training to handle customers.

Sources of customer information -Often organizations claim to know their customers’ requirements, yet they’ve never taken the time to do a real thorough analysis. Sure, they probably know their customers’ general requirements, but do they know what is really important to their customers, how they measure up relative to the important factors and how they compare to the competition in the areas most important to the customer? In most cases they don’t and won’t unless they collect this information in a formal, systematic manner.
Own organization – Without looking too far, employees will be able to uncover potential areas of customer dissatisfaction by reviewing the key operational data. Check on the status of backlogs or stock outs. Chances are if these are significant where some customers that are not happy with the delivery cycle time.
Another place to look is the internal reject or yield rates. If number of rejects is high or the yields low, they can bet that some bad product (deposit scheme) is leaking out to the customer. Even if the inspection of the product done before shipping it to the customer, tests have shown that inspection isn’t 100% reliable–some bad product will sneak out.
Now consider a service company–maybe even some local private bank company. Customers are typically concerned with the turnaround time for performance of service. The telephone company could review its internal records for the average turnaround time. If it is excessive they probably have some unhappy customers. Another measurement to look carefully that is the number of times they must re-do a service.
Review the internal data to pinpoint potential problem areas for customers. Also, gather all employees together and get their inputs on the customers’ satisfaction level. Assemble a list of strengths and weaknesses, but do not get bogged down in the details.

Surveys and focus groups are two of the most popular methods for gathering information on customer needs. Surveys are written questions given to individual customers; focus groups are oral questions administered to groups of customers. Both must have clear and specific goals up front in order to be successful.
A broad questionnaire or focus group session provides lot of information, but it is usually too general to be of any value. Objectives must be clear and questions specific if they are to provide results that can be acted upon. Although focus groups and surveys are similar in what they want to accomplish, one may be more suitable than the other, depending on the application. Surveys are relatively simple and economical to administer and can reach large amounts of customers, but the information can sometimes be limited since it is a one-way exchange of information.
On the other hand, focus groups take more time and effort, are often more expensive to administer and may not be as far- reaching as surveys, but their interactive nature may produce clearer feedback. The best results are found when combinations of both techniques are used to identify customer requirements and expectations.

The vision–In order to transform the company into one that values customer satisfaction, company must establish a customer-entered vision. So what is a vision, exactly? According to Richard Whitely of the Forum Corporation, a vision is … a vivid picture of an ambitious, desirable future state that is connected to the customer and better in some important way than the current state.
In other words, vision is what employees want their organization to become, what they want is “to grow up to be.” And a client-centered vision is one which takes its direction from the customer.
A vision has two critical functions that it performs. First, it serves as a source of inspiration that rallies the organization around a single unifying purpose, which in this case is the customer.
The second duty a vision performs is that it guides decision-making and aligns an organization so that all functions work towards a single goal. In the business world, there are rarely black and white decisions to make, but there is an awful lot of Gray.
With a vision that spells out what the organization wants to become, it provides direction needed to make better decisions. After all, as a bank employee who knows where the business wants to head is more likely to make decisions that reinforce that goal.
So how does a banker create a vision? It’s really quite easy. Vision statements need not be elaborate. For instance, first world countries banking service are “Quality, Service, and flexible customer service.” so as a banker Keep the vision short and concise so that other organization is clear on the meaning.
Many companies make the mistake of trying to create journalistic masterpieces. The only problem is that they tend to be so long, no one in the organization really knows what it means. The hard part in creating a vision is deciding what employees want the organization to be in the future.
Now, once it has established the customer-centered vision and created customer-friendly policies, bankers become ready to sharpen their skills necessary to deal effectively with the customers. These skills can be segregated into two areas–communication skills and problem-solving skills.
Communication skills–How to communicate to the customers is just as important as what is to communicate. Following I will find some behavioral skills that will communicate to the customer that I am an organization that values their business

Greet the customers–”Put them at ease and make them feel comfortable!” When the customer or prospective customer first walks in or telephones with an inquiry or order, make him feel welcomed. This sets the tone for the rest of the transaction. If this is the first time with this customer, this is when first impressions can help or hurt, depending on how well it makes the customer feel within those first critical moments.
Value customers–”Let we know that we think we are important!” Customers want to feel special, and to make them feel special the attitude and behavior must say, “You’re the customer–you pay my salary. You make my job possible.” When it is time to value customers, sincerity makes them feel good about the organization. A customer-focused organization is not in business to deliver a product or service, but, instead, is there to enable people to enjoy the benefits of its product or service. The difference is demonstrated by the temporary employment agency that is in business not to fill in job vacancies with temporary personnel, but rather to help their customers enjoy the benefits that their service provides–immediate placement of highly skilled individuals. The difference is subtle, but the effect is not!
Listen to customers–”Please listen to me and understand me!” Listen totally–to the customer’s words, their tone, their body language. According to a UCLA study on communication, 7% of our communication is verbal, 38% is tone of voice, and 55% is nonverbal. Listening totally will enhance my understanding of what customer really needs as well as make them feel valued.
Help customers–”Help me get what we want!” Customers do not go for any services for what they are, but, instead, they using their Account for the benefits that the services offer. That is why bankers must be customer-focused rather than product- or service-focused. Do not waste the time explaining the service features. Explain how the service benefits them–how it satisfies a need, solves their problems, or gives them extra value.

Problem-solving skills —- Problems will always occur, but taking responsibility for these problems can turn a negative customer into a positive one. Studies show that if a problem is resolved quickly, 98% of our customers will open account again and even tell colleagues that they had a positive experience! However, the longer the problem drags on, the more frustrated a customer becomes, and the less likely he is to be satisfied.
Finally, I want to tell that customer service is really interesting and enjoyable. In this way we can meet with a lot of people. A customer service officer has a lot of job responsibility. He has to motivate the customer in the same time he has to describe his organization product and service policy, has to settle the customer all kind of problems. It is a busy and most concentrated job. In this way he has to achieve his branch target as well. Now a day’s whole world faces the credit crunch problem. Comparatively the situation of Bangladesh is good situation than other 1st world countries. Because of banking is product and service policy. In first world now a day banking account open is a great achievement matter. In 1st world countries bank account is most important for the people very steps of life. 1st world banking and Bangladeshi banking policy and services are totally different.


Loans & Advance

6.1 Loans and Advance

The main business of Bank is to settle loan & advance. Bank collects deposits of saving from one kind of people of society and invests these deposits as loan, subject to conditions, to other kind of people. Bank not sanction cash loan but also credit its good reputation, coincidence faith etc. To settle loan by the bank is called credit or loan and advance. It can be mentioned that banks do business by savings or deposits collected from local people. So before settle loan the band must ensure about the security of the disbursed amount (loan) and he also ensures about the repayment of the loan.

Different Advances Offered by NCCBL

Process of handling loans:

6.2 Types of Loan
The Loan and Advances made by the NCCBL can broadly be classified by following categories-
Continuous Loan
Demand Loan
Term Loan
Other Special Scheme

Continuous Loan
These are those advances which do not have any set schedule for drawing or disbursement but usually have a terminal date of full adjustment or repayment. Example: Cash credit (CC), Over Draft (OD).
Continuous Loan of NCCBL for last five years (2004-2008) is-

Annual Report: 2004-2008

Cash credit (CC)
A Cash Credit (CC) is an arrangement by which the customer is allowed to borrow money up to a limit. This is a permanent arrangement and the customer need not draw the sanctioned amount at once, but draw the amount as and when required. They can put back any surplus amount, which they may find with them. Thus Cash Credit (CC) is an active and running account, which deposits and with drawls may be affected frequently. Interest is charged only for the amount withdrawn and not for the whole amount charged. If the customer does not use the Cash Credit (CC) limit to the full extent, a commitment charge is made by the bank. This charge is imposed on the unutilized portion of Cash Credit (CC) only.
Cash Credit (CC) provides an elastic form of borrowing since the limit fluctuates according to the needs of the business. Cash Credit (CC) is the most favorite mode of borrowing by large commercial and industrial concerns in our country.
Cash Credit (CC) arrangements are usually made against the security of commodities hypothecated or pledged with the bank.

a) Cash Credit (Hypothecation):
This type of credit is allowed to the traders and industrial borrowers for promoting trade and commerce and industries. In case of hypothecation the possession of goods is not given to the bank. The goods remain at the disposal and in the go downs of the borrower. This is given access to goods whenever it so desires. The borrower furnishes periodical return of stock with the bank.

b) Cash Credit (Pledge):
Allowed for promoting trade, commerce and industries of the country against pledge of stock in trade under Bank’s control. In case of the pledge, the goods are placed in custody of the bank with its name on the go down where they are stored. The borrower has no right to deal with them.

Overdraft (OD) is an arrangement between a banker and its customer by which the latter is allowed to withdraw over his credit balance in the current account up to an agreed limit. This is only a temporary accommodation usually granted against securities. The borrower is permitted to draw and repay any number of times, provided the total amount overdrawn does not exceed the agreed limit. The interest is charged only for the amount drawn and not for the whole amount sanctioned.
There are two kinds of overdraft.
a) Secured overdraft
b) Unsecured overdraft

a) Secured overdraft: Secured overdrafts are loans which have collateral attached to them in the form of a lien. A lien is a monetary claim against a property to be fulfilled before repeat ownership can take place.
Secured overdrafts divided into two forms. There are- (i) Secured overdrafts financial obligation (SOD-FO) (ii) Secured overdrafts general (SOD General).
i. SOD (FO): Allowed against financial obligation (Like- FDR, SSS etc.) for promotion of economic and business activities.
ii. SOD (General): Generally allowed t9o the traders for business promotion and economic activities. In case of SOD (General), bank keeps the land as collateral.

b)Unsecured overdraft: Banks, sometimes grant unsecured overdraft for small amount to customers having current account with them. Such customers may be government employees with fixed income or traders. Unsecured overdrafts are permitted only where reliable source of funds are available to a borrower for repayment.

Other Special Scheme

Consumer Scheme
The Scheme aims at improving the standard of living of the fixed income group. Under the scheme the clients may secure loan facilities at easy installments to procure household amenities.
Lease Finance
An entrepreneur, under this scheme, may avail of the lease facilities to procure industrial machinery (without having to purchase it by down payment) with easy repayment schedule. The clients also get special rebate in their income tax payment under the scheme.
Lease financing is one of the most convenient long term sources of acquiring capital machinery and equipment. It is a very popular scheme whereby a client is given the opportunity to have an exclusive right to use an asset, usually for an agreed period of time, against payment of rent. Of late, the lease finance has become very popular in almost all the countries of the world. An obvious advantage of the lease is to use an asset without having to buy it. The lessee is obligated to make lease payments until the expiration of the lease agreement which corresponds to the useful life of the assets. In a capital scarce economy like ours. Lease financing is suitable for firms to acquire capital, Machinery, Equipments, medical Instruments and Automobiles etc. And thereby employ

their own resources more advantageously in some other investments. Lease financing also helps a firm to reap significant economic benefit through tax saving and by reducing the risk of the equipments becoming obsolete due to the technological advancement.

Lease Financing of NCCBL for 2004-2008 is:
2004 2005 2006 2007 2008
71 95 103 82 80
Annual Report: 2004-2008

Non Performing Loan:
Loans are designated as none performing when they are placed on nonaccrual status or when the terms are substantially altered in a restructuring. Nonaccrual means that banks deduct all interest on the loans that was recorded but not actually collected. Banks have traditionally stopped acquiring interest when debt payments were more than 90 days past due by the end of the reporting period. This permitted borrowers to make late partial payments and the banks to report all interest as accrued, even it was not collected. On occasion, banks would lend the borrower the funds that were used to make the late payment.











From the above figure we can see that NCCBL’s non performing loan amount increased day by day. But it doesn’t show the real picture. Because, the total loan and advances increased then non performing loan also increased over the preceding year.

7.8 Types of post import finance

If L/C issuing bank get original document first they will check the documents. Post import finance can be:
Cash: Party can repay their money in cash.
LIM (Loan against merchandise): LIM may be created at the request of the importer while he is not in a position to take delivery of import bills by making full payments of entire bank dues. In such a case PAD is transferred to LIM a/c and the overdue interest from the negotiation date to the date of transfer to LIM a/c is charged. Margin on the landed cost is ascertained and customs duty, sales tax etc are to be borne by importer. After clearance, consignments are stored in bank’s go down or party’s go down under bank’s effective control. Goods are delivered against proportionate payment and adjusted within the validity. Validity for commercial items is 30-45 days and for industrial item 90 days.
Force LIM: If it so happens that the importer does not proceed to retire import bill in spite of repeated request/ reminders and the imported goods incur demurrage at the port and further will expose more demurrage along with possibility of damage/ pilferage, bank take initiative to create forced loan in the form of LIM and keeps consignment in its go down for adjustment of liability through sale proceed of goods.

LTR (Loan against trust script): Bank has to part with the goods of the bill of lading without receiving the amount due from the customers, it is essential that bank should take a “Trust Receipt” signed by the customer, agreeing to hold goods or their sale proceeds in trust, for the bankers, so long as the entire amount due to the borrower is not paid off. If a customer who has signed such Trust Receipt fails to hand over to the banker, the salt proceeds of the goods sold, the former will be liable for criminal breach of trust.

LTR may be sanctioned at the request of confide customers of the bank. After sanctioning LTR import bills are handed over to the importer who will clear the goods from custom authorities by making payment of custom duty, VAT and other charges. The goods will remain at the custody of the importer. LTR is allowed for 30-90 days. It should be covered by collateral security and post dated cheques.

Composite limit: Now a days it is common practice for the bank to sanction composite limit for big customers in the form of CC (H), L/C limit, LTR etc. In this case sanction from HO is taken only once in a year. So it promotes customer’s service.


SWOT Analysis

8.1 SWOT Analysis of NCCBL

Both manufacturing and service oriented business organizations start to possess some weaknesses as time elapses. The weaknesses of an organization can be turned into opportunities if recognized on time. Moreover, overlooking any threat may result in loosing valuable business opportunities. For this reason, an assessment of every business organization is required to judge the performance from the aspects of its strength, weaknesses, opportunity and threat (SWOT) analysis of the bank is as follows:


The bank provides quality service to the clients compared to its other contemporary competitors.
Experienced bankers and corporate personal have formed the management of the bank which formulates the core business strategies.
Some services of the bank are automated which attracts large number of clients. For instance, the bank provides Automated Teller Machine (ATM) services in several locations.

Delegation of authority is centralized which makes the employee to realize less responsibility. Thus, the employee morale is deteriorated.
The credit proposal evaluation process is lengthy. Therefore, sometimes valuable clients are lost and the bank becomes unable to meet targets.
No substantive use of Annual confidential Report (performance evaluation form) to reward or to punish the employee. Hence, the employees become inefficient.
The portfolio of the bank is not that much diversified because it invests major portion of its fund on Government securities.
The bank does not go for rural banking. But rural people are bankable which NCCBL get from the activities of the NGOs.
The bank lacks aggressive advertising and promotional activities to get a broad geographical coverage.
The bank has only a few ATM booths but not in mention able places. So, the scope of the use of ATM card limited.
The bank is burdened with a lot of mid and lower level employees due to doing the banking function manually, it is not only increases the operating costs but also consumer’s time as well as lesson customers’ satisfaction.
Compared to its competitors the bank does traditional activities.
A remarkable portion of the total human resources in inefficient.

The common attitude of Bangladeshi clients to default.
Multinational banks with various attractive means of providing commercial banking services can take the bank’s lucrative clients away.
Opening the recent permitted new bank, without implementation of the needed reforms, could lead the unethical competition and horse trading in the country’s sector.
Local competitors can also capture a huge market share by offering similar products and services provided by the bank.
The most thinking threats of the banks come from the competitors. The bank has a chance to lose its market share to the competitors if it does not take necessary action.
Bangladesh Bank sometimes require Private commercial Banks (PCBs) to be abide by such rules and regulations which is not suitable for every commercial banks.
The most of the threats for the company are coming from the competitors.
Opening of the recently permitted new banks, without implementation of the needed reforms, could lead to unethical competition and house trading in the country’s troubled banking sector.
The size of the market and the present state of economic activity did not provide adequate scope for business for a large number of banks with poor management and backdated operating system.

To do the internship in the National Credit and Commerce Bank Limited, I work with the officers and I observe many things. And with those observations, description as well as analysis of the topic, I find some factor those are particularly applicable for the NCCBL. Those are given below:

1. The NCCBL has online banking system for providing better service to the customers. But, the online bank is not implied in all the branch of NCCBL. Mainly, busy cities’ branches (Area like Foreign exchange branch in Motijheel, Dhaka, Chittagong) have that kind of facilities. Having manual and online banking at the same time, the bank sometime find some problem to do their inter branch activities.

2. To do the online banking, NCCBL use MICROBANKER a banking software to run a banking operation. This software has lot of option to do, but still it has some lacking. To this system, only limited use can login at a same time. So, all the employees of the bank cannot work with this software at a time, and some time it becomes slow to take the entry. And some statement cannot be provided by this software which other bank’s system can do, such as the MIROBANKER is not able to provide the statement of Fixed Deposit.

3. Only a few officers know, entirely, how to operate the MICROBANK (online banking software of NCCBL).
4. Currently, one of the most profitable products for NCCBL is Money Gram which is used to send foreign remittance. Money Gram is less charge and time than the Union Money Transfer and other money transfer agent which normally attract the growing market of foreign remittance. At the sometime, the bank is providing the service Money Express, UK money speed.

5. The NCCBL is using SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Inter Bank Financial Telecommunication) to provide better service for the customer of foreign trade and exchange. This allows doing many businesses with the foreign market. And it always gives change to the bank to update the foreign financial currency and market information regularly.

6. The accountability is working in the NCCBL. Every day they have finish their transaction and if there is any miss match, the employees have to explain it and even have to pay for it. So the condition of transparency is good here. This job use to do the Accounts and Administration Department.

7. The NCCBL has a training institute to build a better work force. When a provisional officer joint the bank, the bank arrange some training course associate with Bangladesh “Institute of Bank Management” to improve the officer’s skill.

8. The bank had introduced its ATM card to the market and it has only a few ATM Booths right now. Inefficiency of the management decision makes the scope of the ATM services limited.

9. NCCBL has introduced the Visa Card to the market in the year of 2005. It gives the customer access to the local and foreign market. NCCBL is providing this service with comparatively low interest and charge.

10. The NCCBL is showing their growth by increasing the number of branch. In 2000, it had 27 branches. The management of the bank is able to find of the need of the client mainly the middle class business owner. Though the strategy of bank is conservation, by selecting the right target group the bank has increase growth of their market. Currently they have 57 branches all over the country.

9.2 Regression

Interpretation of R square: The model summary shows some important indicators of the explaining power of the model. The R-square value shows how much change in the dependent variable is caused by the independent variables. In this case an r-square value of .551 or 55.1% means 55.1% of the change in dependent variable is caused by the four independent variables.

Interpretation of Adjusted R-square: On the other hand, the adjusted r-square value shows how much change in the dependent variable is caused by statistically significant variables. So in this case, an adjusted r-square value of .462 or 46.2% means that 4602% of the change in dependent variable is caused by statistically significant variables. The standard error of the estimate measures the accuracy of the predictions within the regression line, which is around .899.


The ANOVA table shows the total variation, the explained variation and the unexplained variation (residual) due to the error. The explained variation is denoted as SSR and the unexplained variation due to residuals is denoted by SSE. The total variation (SST) is 36 and variation explained by regression (SSR) is 19.852 and variation explained by regression error SSE is 16.148. So the explaining power of the regression model is good since SSE is less than SSR. If we divide the SSR with SST, we get the value of r-square which we have already found out to be 55.1%.

Multiple Linear Regression Equation
Y (Satisfaction Level with NCC Bank) = -1.641 + 0.817 X1 (Employees willingness to help) + 0.546 X2 (Feeling safe in transaction) + 0.932 X3 (Statements are clearly understandable) +0.118 X4 (Modern equipment)

Interpretation of Unstandardized Beta Coefficients:
The Beta (β) coefficients are the estimated coefficients of population variables. Unstandardized coefficients mean that they include the y-intercept in the regression equation, which is often meaningless. Where else, standardized coefficients are used in standardized regression equation which has no y-intercept.
Employee’s willingness to help has an unstandardized beta of 0.817 which means that if other variables are held constant, then for every unit of increase in employee’s willingness to help, the wiliness to help will increase by 0.817 units.

Feeling safe in transaction has an unstandardized beta of 0.546 which means that if other variables are held constant, then for every unit of increase in safety in transaction, the safety level with NCC Bank will rise by 0.546 units.

Clearly understandable bank statement has an unstandardized beta of 0.932 which means that if other variables are held constant, then for every unit of increase in clearly understanding of statements, the satisfaction level with NCC Bank will rise by 0.932 units.

Using of modern equipment of the bank has an unstandardized beta of 0.118 which means that if other variables are held constant, then for every unit of increase of using modern equipment, the satisfaction level with NCC Bank will rise by 0.118 units.

Standardized Multiple Linear Regression Equation
Y (Satisfaction Level with NCC Bank) = 0.754+ 0.290 X1 (Employees willingness to help) + 0.239 X2 (Feeling safe in transaction) + 0.410 X3 (statements are clearly understandable) +0.317 X4 (Modern equipment).

Interpretation of Standardized Beta Coefficients:
Employee’s willingness to help has a standardized beta of 0.290 which means that if other variables are held constant, then for every unit of increase in satisfaction with employees helping willingness, the satisfaction with NCC Bank will increase by 0.290 units.

Feeling safe in transaction has a standardized beta of 0.239 which means that if other variables are held constant, then for every unit of increase in safety transaction, the satisfaction level with NCC Bank will rise by 0.239 units.

Clearly understandable statements has a standardized beta of 0.410 which means that if other variables are held constant, then for every unit of increase in clearly understandable statements, the satisfaction level with NCC Bank will rise by 0.410 units.

Modern equipment of the bank has a standardized beta of 0.317 which means that if other variables are held constant, then for every unit of increase in using modern equipment, the satisfaction level with NCC Bank will rise by 0.317 units.

9.3 Cross tab 1

For the cross tabulation analysis we have to consider two categories which are “Satisfaction level with Marketing strategy” and “Satisfaction level with NCC Bank”.

Ho= There is no relationship between Satisfaction level with current Marketing strategy and satisfaction level with NCC Bank.
H1= There is relationship between Satisfaction level with current Marketing strategy and satisfaction level with NCC Bank.

Chi square (2) = 57.630; P= .00
All this substantial differences were significant because P value is less than .05
So, we have to reject the Ho hypothesis.

Cross tabs 2

For the cross tabulation analysis we have to consider two categories which are “Modern equipment” and “Satisfaction level with NCC Bank”.

Ho= There is no relationship between Modern equipment and satisfaction level with NCC Bank.
H1= There is relationship between Modern equipment and satisfaction level with NCC Bank.

Chi square (2) = 18.214; P= .20
All this substantial differences were significant because P value was smaller than .05.
So, we have to reject the Ho hypothesis.

Cross tabs 3

For the cross tabulation analysis we have to consider two categories which are “Preference of NCCBL” and “Satisfaction level with NCC Bank”.

Ho= There is no relationship between Preference of NCCBL and satisfaction level with NCC Bank.
H1= There is relationship between Preference of NCCBL and satisfaction level with NCC Bank.

Chi square (2) = 28.093; P= .005
All this substantial differences were significant because P value was smaller than .05.
So, we have to reject the Ho hypothesis.

9.4 Findings

In the frequency table, it shows that most of the clients of NCC Bank are from business and service category. The most important reason for choosing NCC Bank is its go service quality and for goodwill as well. Most of the respondents come to know about NCC Bank through WOM (Word of Mouth). 24% of the respondents are satisfied with the current marketing strategy which is followed by the NCC Bank, so the Bank should take some steps to improve its strategy. On the other hand 28% of the respondents are somewhat satisfied while dealing with NCC bank. So NCC bank needs to be more concentrate while dealing with customer. Though 72% respondents thinks that employees of NCC bank are always helpful but still 20% respondents are unhappy. So they need to focus more in terms of what customers want. And in both the case of feeing safe while making transaction and understanding statements easily 60% respondents are happy. So it plays a motive role for NCC bank. And almost 80% people are concern about the equipment they use, which gives a good indication in the market place.

In the regression table, it shows that there is significant relation between the satisfactions with NCC Bank and its current quality service. So, the null hypothesis should be rejected. As a result, the alternative hypothesis- Customer of NCC Bank are satisfied with the current quality of service and products they are offering.

In the cross tabs, there is no relationship between modern equipment and satisfaction with NCC Bank Ltd. But there is relationship between current strategy of marketing and satisfaction with NCC Bank, and improvement need or not in marketing strategies and satisfaction with NCC Bank.

At the end it is to be said that NCC Bank needs some improvement in its marketing strategies though it is doing well with its current quality service and it has positive impact on their customer.


As per earnest observation some suggestions for the improvement of the situation are given below:

To attract more clients NCCBL has to create a new marketing strategy, which will increase the total export Import business.
Effective and efficient initiatives are necessary to recover the default loans.
Attractive incentive package for the exporter will help to increase the Export and accordingly it will diminish the balance of payment gap of NCCBL.
Different types of training very much required for the bank officials.
Computerized banking system and latest communication device are the most important elements for this century. So, for the sound and stable Banking operation, NCCIBL has no alternative but the modernization.
Foreign exchange operations of other banks are more dynamic and less time consuming. NCCBL should take some initiative to compete with those Banks.
Bank can provide foreign market report, which will enable the exporter to evaluate the demand for their products in foreign countries.
The Bank must be to introduce On Line Banking between all branches.
Number of branches is very limited of this Bank. They have to increase the number of branches at various key points of the country
