Report on Acquaintance of Real Working

Report on Acquaintance of Real Working


This internship is a part of the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program that provides an acquaintance of real working environment to students. I was placed at Trust Bank Limited, Dhanmondi Branch as an internee for three months. My respective Supervisor has given me the topic “General Banking Operations of Trust Bank Limited.” This internship program was my very first on-the-job exposure and provided me with learning experience and knowledge in several areas. During the first few weeks of my internship period, I was able to get accustomed to the working environment of the bank. As the internship continued, I not only learned about the activities and operations of correspondent Bank, but I also gathered some knowledge about the basic business activities of banking in first one-month of my internship period.

Generally by the word “Bank” we can easily understand that the financial institution deals with money. But there are different types of banks such as; Central Banks, Commercial Banks, Savings Banks, Investment Banks, Industrial Banks, Co-operative Banks etc. But when we use the term “Bank” without any prefix, or qualification, it refers to the ‘Commercial banks’. Commercial banks are the primary contributors to the economy of a country. So we can say Commercial banks are a profit-making institution that holds the deposits of individuals & business in checking & savings accounts and then uses these funds to make loans. Both general public and the government are dependent on the services of banks as the financial intermediary. As, banks are profit-earning concern; they collect deposit at the lowest possible cost and provide loans and advances at higher cost. The differences between two are the profit for the bank.

Efficacy of customer service is related with progression of operation. We can identify the efficacy of customer service by studying the progress of “Trust Bank Ltd.”  from starting to at present. The progress of “The Trust Bank Ltd.” is very rapid with the concern of its profit making and growth of its operation within the country towards the country’s economy.

Trust Bank Limited pursues decentralized management policies and gives adequate work freedom to the employees. This results in less pressure for the workers and acts as a motivational tool for them, which gives them, increased encouragement and inspiration to move up the ladder of success. Overall, I have experienced a very friendly and supporting environment at TBL, which gave me the pleasure and satisfaction to be a part of them for a while. While working in different departments of this branch I have found each and every employee too friendly to me to co-operate. They have discussed in details about their respective tasks. I have also participated with their works.


The BBA program is designed to focus on theoretical and professional development of the students to take up business as a profession as well as service as a career. It is designed with an excellent combination of theoretical and practical aspects. The Internship program provides the students to link their theoretical knowledge into practical fields.

Internship program is essential for every student, especially for the students of Business Administration, which helps them to know the real life situation. For this reason a student takes the internship program at the last stage of the degree, to launch a career with some practical experience. As a Complete fulfillment of Internship Program introduce the students with the real life business situation

This report is a part of my academic program. The internship program has been set for three (3) months period at “Trust Bank Ltd” as a part of my BBA program. In our BBA Program all courses based on theoretical and we have to learn practically. The program has helped me a lot to understand the organizational atmosphere and behavior and I gather some practical Knowledge about “General Banking Operation of Trust Bank Ltd.”

The main objective of this report is to have an assessment about overall activities of “Trust Bank Ltd.”.

Data collection procedure:

This report is the output of 6 weeks long internship program by analyzing the qualitative information collected from secondary sources that contain past and present facts and figures, and conditions of the Trust Bank Limited. This report is based on both primary & secondary information. Majority of the information was collected from secondary sources.

Primary Sources:

  • Conversations with officers & employees of the branch.
  • Interactions with the customers at TBL.

Secondary sources:

  • Annual reports,
  • Official documents,
  • Relevant books
  • Journals, and other publications
  • Term papers of TBL Training manuals
  • Internet & various web sites of TBL.
  • Prior research report.


Conceptual Framework of the Report



The present study was not out of limitations. But it was a great opportunity for me to know the banking activities of Bangladesh specially “Trust Bank Ltd.” Some constraints are appended bellow—

  • The main constraint of the study is inadequate access to information, which has    hampered the scope of analysis required for the study. As it is a new bank it could not start all its operation, it was unable to provide some formatted documents data for the study.
  • Due to time limitations many of the aspects could not be discussed in the            present report.
  • Every organization has their own secrecy that is not revealed to others. While     collecting data i.e. interviewing the employees, they did not disclose much information for the sake of the confidentiality of the organization.
  • Another problem is that creates a lot of confusions regarding verification of data.
  • The clients were too busy to provide me much time for interview.
  • I have had no opportunity to compare the general banking system of the TBL with that of other contemporary and common size banks. It was mainly because of the shortage of time and internship nature.

In inward register all the incoming documents are received and registered according to date. Then, Documents are transferred to different departments according to their destiny.

Outward Register:

The bank lends the deposited money on different sectors and at different rates. A summary of sector wise lending and lending rate is as follows:

There are two types of Loan:

1)    Short-Term Loans: Time period is less than 1 year

2)    Long -Term Loans: Time period is 1 year & above

Loans and advances Department is the most important department of a bank. Banks borrows money from the public by accepting Deposits from them and then lending it to a borrower for a specific period of time to be repaid with a certain amount of interest. This Dept. is one of the main sources of TBL’s profits.

When bank wants to give loans of advances to a borrower, first of all he has to do LRA (Lending Risk Analysis) and when loan amount is 20, 00,000 & above this analysis is compulsory. Because the amount, which is given to, a borrower, actually comes from the public and it is repayable on demand. So, bank has to be careful when giving loans and advances. When banks can not collect the loan amount with interest, they have to bear losses.

If TBL agrees to give loans and advances to a borrower after analyzing all sorts of risk, then the borrower writes an application addressing the manager and the amount, business types, securities etc. also are mentioned in the application. After getting the application the manager scrutinizes it for justifying all information whether genuine or not. and after doing this he sanctions the loan. He can also collect the borrower’s credit report from CIB(Credit Information Bureau ) Department of Bangladesh Bank (If the borrower takes loans above Tk. 1,00,000 from any bank, that bank will send this credit reports to the Bangladesh Bank.

The manager can sanction specific amount of loans and advances (In this branch it is Tk. 15, 00,000). If the loan amount crosses this limit, then he will recommend it to regional office. Regional manager also has limit for sanctioning loans and advances. If the amount of loans and advances above his limit, he will recommend it to the head office. Then head office will sanction that loans and advances.

TBL sanctions loans and advances under certain terms of conditions. When the borrower‘s loan is sanctioned, he is known through intimation/ a copy of sanction letter. If he accepts all terms of conditions, then he has to come within 3, 7, or 15 days whatever mentioned in the sanction letter.

  • § Selection of Borrower:        

In extension of bank credit, nothing is more significant than selection of borrower. While choosing a borrower, bank must study three things: Character, Capacity and in Capital or in other words Reliability, Responsibility, Resourcefulness of a party.

Lending Risk Analysis (LRA): A Risk Mgt. Technique by Trust Bank (CRG):

Lending Risk Analysis (LRA) are based on two important pillars –

  • Business risk pillar
  • Security risk pillar

These are for addressing two frequently asked questions of the bankers. The questions are –

  • Is the business good enough to ensure regular repayment of my loan?
  • Do the securities cover adequate exposure, if the business fails to produce returns?

In answering these two basic questions, business risk and security risk have been examined with their different parameters of risk, as business risk is nothing but the Combination of the risk of different parameters of business and industry and so is for security risk, under LRA forms with a view to reaching the ultimate Security risk pillar and Business risk pillar.

Modes of Charging Securities by Trust Bank:

Securities are the cover against loans and advances. On the other hand it ensures recovery of loans and advances from the borrowers who offer properties to the lending banker as security. Properties are converted into securities. But for conversion some conditions are to be full filled as required by the Trust Bank and these are as follows:

a)         The properties are to be acceptable to the lending bankers for securities.

b)         Creation of the charge on the concerned properties.

  • The Acceptability of properties as securities are mainly depends on:

1.         Value of property must cover the loan amount with margin.

2.         Consideration of different qualities of properties

3.         Free from credit restrictions of Bangladesh Bank (if any).

  1. Within the credit policy of the bank.
  • There are two types of securities i.e. primary and collateral.
  • Modes of Creation of chares are of different types. These are dependable on the basis of nature of loans and advances and nature of properties for securities.
  • Charges may be of different types like legal Charge, Equitable charges, fixed charges, floating charges etc.
  • Following are the different modes of creation of charges by the bank:
  1. Pledge
  2. Hypothecation
  3. Mortgage
  4. Lien


When goods and produces are handed over to the lending banker by the trader or manufacturer who borrow against those goods and produces for short term i.e. for working capital. But if any goods and produces are kept with the bank for security purposes will not be treated as pledge. In otherwise it is the Bailment of goods as per Bailment of goods act. In case of Pledge, control and possession of goods and produces will remain with bank but ownership will remain with borrower. There will be a storehouse either of banks or rented for safe keeping of goods. Insurance of pledged goods are compulsory. And all related expenses would be born by borrower.


Hypothecation is just opposite of pledge. When a borrower ownership, control  and possession of trading goods but legal right and indirect control is created  by lending banker for security against short term advances i.e. Equitable charge is created is known as Hypothecation. Just control and possession of trading goods are kept under borrower. In these types of securities lending banker generally asks for collateral securities. This type of mode of securities is allowed only for the case of first class borrowers.


When bank create charge on immovable property in the form of mortgage against any lending to the borrower. Therefore a mortgage is a transfer of interest of a specific immovable property. The immovable property means land and the property attached to land but not grass, trees and crops. Mortgage is to be created for securing loan or performing any contract. And there will be a Mortgagor, Mortgagee, Mortgaged Property and Mortgage deed.


A lien is defined as the right to retain property belonging to a debtor until he has discharged a debt due to the retainer of the property. Lien may be of two types, General Lien and Particular Lien.

A particular Lien confers a right to retain a property in respect of a particular debt involved in connection with a particular transaction.


But a General Lien confers a right to retain goods not only in respect of a debt incurred in connection with a particular transaction but also in respect of any general balance arising out of the general dealing between two parties.

Banker’s Lien is defined as an implied pledge. An ordinary lien does not imply a power of sale, but a pledge implies a power of sale. A banker’s right of sale is generally regarded as extending only to fully negotiable instrument, with regard to other securities.


Loan Pricing:

  • The price of a loan is the “interest rate” that the borrowers must pay to the bank; in addition to the amount borrows (principal)
  • The price or the “Interest rate” of a loan is determined by the true cost of the loan to the bank (base rate) plus profit/risk premium for the bank’s services land acceptance of the risk.
  • The components of the true cost of a loan are:
  1. Interest expense
  2. Administrative cost
  3. Cost of capital

These three components add-up to the bank’s “base rate”.

  • Interest Expense                = Deposit Interest + Central Bank Borrowing   cost
  • Administrative cost            = Deposit as well as Loan administrative cost.
  • Cost of capital                     = Return on capital or the Rate of Return investors would expect to receive from their investment in a   bank.
  • Risk is the measurable possibility of loosing or not gaining value.
  • The Primary risk of making loan is Repayment Risk, which is the measurable possibility that a borrower will not repay their obligation as agreed.
  • The Price a borrower must pay to the bank for assessing and accepting the risk is called the risk premium.
  • Since past performance of a sector, industry or company is a strong indicator of the future performance, risk premium is generally based on the historical, quantifiable amount of losses in that category.
  • Interest Rate Charge           = Base Rate + Risk Premium.
