Circular letter of credit: It is issued by a bank at the request of this customer for availing credit facility from beneficiary or draws his traveling expenses from banks in different places. But with the introduction of Travelers Cheques and Credit Card, issuing of circular L/C is now outdated.

Through negotiating bank exporter will send all required documents to issuing bank. Exporter may send original or copy documents.

a) Currier receipt

c) Bill of exchange- An instrument is writing containing an unconditional order, addressed by one person or concern to another, duly signed by the marker as drawer of the instrument, directing a certain person or concern i.e. addressee as drawer to pay a certain sum of money only to the order, or to the bearer of the instrument on demand or at a fixed or at a determinable future time.

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.

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.
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.
9.1 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.
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.
