Banking system of Bangladesh has gone through three phases of development: Nationalization, Privatization and Lastly Financial Sector Reform, Credit and Commerce Bank Ltd (NCCBL) started its journey in the financial sector of the country as an investment company back in 1985. The company operated up to 1992 with 16 Branches and thereafter with the permission of the Central Bank converted in to a fully fledged scheduled private commercial bank in May, 1993 with paid up capital Tk.39.00 core to serve the nation from a broader platform.
My internship project is divided into two sections. There are Organization part and Analysis part in the project. In the organization part I have tried to concentrate application & limitation of GAAP on general banking loan and advances, Foreign LC and SWOT analysis. NCCBL has office automation like online banking (only for three branches), own software MICRO BANKER. For completing my analysis part, I have done questionnaire survey among the customers of NCCBL. I tried to keep all the data confidential that I collected from our respondents. Survey method was cost efficient and convenient. I have used SPSS 14.0 to analyze the data. In questionnaire I have 16 questions in total. I have used frequency distribution, pie chart, cross tab, and ANOVA and regression analysis. Through my analysis I have tried to prove that how the customers of NCCBL are satisfied with the current quality of service they are providing.
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.
1.2 OBJECTIVES OF THE INTERNSHIP WORK AND THE REPORT
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

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:
ü Face-to-face conversation with the respective officers and staff of the Branch.
ü Informal conversation with the clients.
ü Relevant file and documents study as provided by the concerned officers.
ü Practical work exposures from the different desks of the department of the branch.
Secondary Sources: Secondary data were collected in the following ways:
ü Data gathered within the organization itself.
ü Data gathered from Texts
ü Internet sources.
ü General reports
ü Annual reports
ü Official documents
ü 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.
ü 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.
ü As the officers are very busy with their daily work, they could provide very little time.
ü 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.
ü 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.
ü Sufficient books, publications and figures were not available. If these limitations were not been there, the report would have been more useful.
ü Rush hours and business was another reason that acts as an obstacle while gathering data.
ü 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.
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. As the industry produces goods and commodities, so does the bank creates and controls money‑market and promotes formation of capital. From this point of view, banking‑a technical profession can be termed as industry. Services to its customers are the products of banking industry besides being a pivotal factor in promoting capital formation in the country. As all economic and fiscal activities revolve round this important “Industry’, the role of banking can hardly be over emphasized.
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. To ascertain the role of banks and to analyze its operational aspects and its overall impacts on our national economy a thorough study as to its distribution, expansion and contribution is essential to comprehend its past, present and future bearings for the
Growth and development of the banking sector of the country. In the global context, the role of banks is far-reaching and more penetrating in the economic and fiscal discipline, trade, commerce, industry, export and import all carried through the bank. Banks are the only media through which international trade and commerce are being carried out and entire credit transactions, both national and international.
