Report on Banking Activities and Procedure of SJIBL

Report on Banking Activities and Procedure of SJIBL

1.1 Introduction:
At present, the banking sector in Bangladesh is growing and it is playing a vital role in our economy. In a nut shell, Bank can be defined as a financial institution which collects deposits from the surplus unit and makes investment to the deficit unit. In this process bank’s income is the difference between the lending rates and deposit rates. Banks are of two types; depending on the nature of bank namely conventional banks and Islami banks. Income from interest is the main source of earning of conventional banks following the system of interest. In this system interest is prefixed and not allowed to give or take in accordance with the Islamic system mentioning that it is the source of exploitation. Profit sharing is the main source of earnings of “Islami banks” following the Islamic system. Profit is generated either from buying or selling process which has been made ‘halal’ in Islam or from sharing profit or loss of the borrowing firms. According to the principle of Islamic Shariah, interest (Riba) is strictly prohibited. Thus, no Muslim is allowed to take or give interest as per the Islamic system. Since Islami Banks are conducting based on profit & loss sharing approach rather than interest basis, have more acceptability to the Muslim mankind. Bangladesh being a Muslim dominated country, the Shariah based banking is gaining popularity amongst the people rapidly.
Now, we need to know the definition of “Islamic Banking” and prove whether its activities are unequal to the conventional Banking system & satisfy the principle of Islamic Shariah. Definition given by ‘OIC’ is- “An Islami bank is a financial institution whose statutes, rules and regulations expressly state its commitment to the principle of Islamic Shariah and to the banning of the receipt and payment of interest on any of its operation”. This definition indicates that Islami banks are more convenient and acceptable to the Muslim mankind.
Based on the Quran and Sunnah, organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) first introduces the idea of Islamic Banking which is also first of this kind in South Asia. It is committed to conduct all kinds of banking activities on the basis of profit-loss sharing system. With some other Islami banks SJIBL is now enjoying a strong title & moving to a leading position among the other Islami and Conventional banks.

An Important Discussion on Cheque:
A cheque is defined in section of Negotiable Instrument Act. 1881 as ” A cheque is a dill of exchange drawn on specified banker not express to be payable otherwise than on demand”. So a cheque is an unconditional order of the drawer in writing bearing a date to the banker maintaining his account to pay on demand to a named person, his order or bearer, a certain specified sum of money, expressed in both figures and words. The deposits accepted by the banker should be withdrawal by chouse. A cheese in general valid for 6 months from the date of issue and it may be bear future date. There are 3 parties in a cheque issued:
1. The Drawer- The customer who issues the order i.e. A/C holder.
2. The Drawer- The banker on whom the order is issued.
3. The payee- The beneficiary who is to receive the payment.

The salient features of a cheque:
1) Instrument in writing.
2) An unconditional order.
3) On a specified banker.
4) Payee to be certain.
5) A certain sum of money.
6) Payable on demand.
7) To be singed by the drawer.

Material parts of a cheque:
A) Open Cheque:
Order Cheque: In case of an order cheque it should purport to be endorsed by or on behalf of the payee.
Bearer Cheque: A bearer cheque is payable to the bearer and the banker is discharged from! Inability by payment in due course to the bearer thereof. A bearer cheque is always a bearer one and no endorsement can make it payable otherwise than to the bearer thereof.
B) Crossed Cheque:
The drawer or the holder thereof can cross a cheque generally or specially to a banker. The crossing must be on the face of the cheque. There must be two lines drawn transverse and parallel. There can not be any general crossing without the two transverse lines, with or without the words and company or abbreviation thereof, though the name of a banker without the lines is sufficient to constitute a speck Crossing. A perforated crossing is not disputed. The crossing of a cheque is a material part of the cheque. General crossing is not done to bills of exchange or promissory notes.Effect of crossing:

The cheque is not more payable to the payee or holder at the counter of the
The payment of crossed cheque can be obtained only through banker.

In case of specially crossed cheque the payment should be made through that bank.
C) Account payee Cheque: A cheque marked ‘account payee’ or ‘payee’s account only’ between the two parallel lines of general crossing is said to be crossed ‘account payee’ and ceases to be negotiable.
Reason for Return of Cheque/Dishonor of Cheque:
Insufficient fund

Subsequent issue should be done only on the strength, of the duly signed requisition slip as attached to the cheque book unless the relative cheque book or the requisition slip is reported lost or destroyed by the A/C holder and. loss is properly noted on the banker’s records. An Authorized officer will issue cheque book as following way
• Single and uniform branch seal to be used on each leaf of the cheque book if not done earlier.
• A/C no. Sea! To be affixed on each leaf carefully to ensure that the seals on each leaf are clear and distinct. This is essential for identification of the concerned A/C easily on receipt of a cheque for payment and also as a precaution against fraudulent use of a cheque on any other A/C.
• The Authorized officer must sign in full beside the printed no. on each and every leaf of the cheque book by using carbon paper at the back side of the leaf so that his signature also appears on the back of the leaf.
• The name of the A/C is written down on the face of the cheque book and on the requisition slip and the word “issued on” along with the date of issuance is also written down or, the requisition slip.

 General opinion of the customer

• The Bank is following the Islami Shariah Banking System.
• The bank is more secured in terms of banking transaction and keeping money here.
• The bank has wide access and huge range of service offerings.
• The atmosphere of the bank is more attractive than other banks.
• The bank can provide prompt service.

Drawbacks of SJIBL

Limited workforce
In this branch the workforce are only 16 among them only 10 are officers & rest of them are the workers. SJIBL has very limited human resources compared to its financial activities. And about 40% customers are not satisfied with the services delivered by the bank. There are not many people to perform most of the tasks. As a result many of the employees are burdened with extra work loads and works extra hours without any overtime facilities. This might cause high employee turnover that will prove to be too costly to avoid.

Human Resource Expertise
One of the key-contributing factors behind the success of every organization is HR Department; but the HR Department of SJIBL is not strong enough. Here HR department has not opened yet. So the Bank is not being able to properly direct & maintain the HRs of the Bank. As a result, the performance of services provided by the employees is not becoming attractive & effective to draw the full attention of the customers.

State of the art technology
Though SJIBL utilizes state-of-the-art technology to ensure consistent quality and operation yet it is not properly up-to date.

This branch does not provide credit card facilities. So a credit card market is still beyond the bank’s capacity which is a lack in the policy making. On the other hand other banks successfully introduce this facility.

In Rajshahi SJIBL has no ATM booth which is one of the great problems for the Bank. For this reason the customer is paying extra Tk.10/20 when they need encash there amount. And specially for this reason a huge number of customers open there account in other bank. In recent times, it gets popularity that most of the customers want mobilization of there amount of deposits which is possible by the help of the own ATM booth facilities. This system also saves times & increases earning & money circulation & strengthens local the economy.

SJIBL does not have special marketing department in this branch & it dose not adopt different promotional tools like advertisement campaign, billboard, personal selling TV AD. print Ad. on local newspaper & other local media to convey the update message of the bank & the perfect ideas & full features of the Bank, deposit schemes & investment schemes like(Mudaraba, alwadiah, Murabaha, Muashaka ,Bai Muzzal, Bai Salam etc) these concepts are not very much clear to the customers as a result they are not interesting about the Bank &the Bank’s products.


Advertisement & Promotion:
SJIBL should pursue an aggressive advertisement campaign in order to build up a strong image and reputation among the potential customers. It can come in to the limelight through an aggressive marketing campaign such as advertisement in the newspaper and magazine, more billboard and neon signs, publicity messages and promotional campaigns. SJIBL can also pursue promotional campaigns with its customers particularly the corporate clients in order to build up a stronger rapport with them. Television advertisement is also a major method for attracting the potential customers. As it is a new bank, a strategy of exposing the bank to the public must be taken so that the general people are aware about the emergence and the growth of the bank.

Increase number of employees:
SJIBL has limited number of employees compare to their branches. So to improve their service they have to increase their employees within a shortest possible time. Otherwise they could not operate their banking activities properly and fail to compete with other private banks.

Improvement of service quality:
This is one of the major setbacks of SJIBL as it has not yet achieved its targeted goal that is to provide better services to its customers compare to the contemporary banks as well as the foreign banks. The service is weak in the general banking division where the retail customers are not getting the service properly. The management must take steps to improve this situation. Adequate people with the proper training and skill should be place at this wing of the bank.

Enhancement of remuneration package:
The present compensation package at SJIBL is very unimpressive and not capable to attract quality personal to fill up its position. Many skilled and devoted officers of the bank are depressed with their compensation package. The foreign banks pay almost double than that of SJIBL and other private banks also have a higher scale then this bank, it is high time that the management should consider revising the remuneration package in order to attract quality human resources.

Preparation of a full-fledged Service Rule:
It was a shocking experience to be informed that despite the employee’s continuous urge to develop a complete service rule, the respective authority has not taken the necessary initiative towards this end. In today’s complex modern banking system, if the employees do not have specific job descriptions, then the hurdles that the employees had to undergo is well felt by the respective sufferers. SJIBL, as yet do not have a full fledge service rule, which is really a big obstacle towards the achievement of higher employee productivity and thus the overall profitability of the organization.

Improvements of the training center:
Now a day’s most of the commercial bank has its own training center and we are fortunate that SJIBL has its own training center. We know that effective training is a must in increasing employee productivity.

Establishment of self serving terminals:
Self serving terminals is a new concept of banking service, which allows customers on their own to open new account, transfer funds between accounts, order cheques, stop payments of previously issued cheques and get information of different terms of other services that the bank offers may be initiated in the bank though brushing up and utilization of existing technologies.

Establishment Of ATM booth:
SJIBL should establish sufficient ATM booth centers in the Rajshahi city to compete strongly with the rivals &increase the customers & to satisfy them by reducing their time money &energy & broaden the opportunities to do business in anywhere over the Rajshahi, to accelerate the money circulation to strengthen the local economy. It also help introduce the credit card facility to the customer.

Introduction of credit card:
Credit card is a new arena of present banking service. Already a noticeable number of banks have introduced credit card facility. Other leading private banks have already introduced their credit cards. In order to stay in competition and to provide better service SJIBL is suggested to introduce credit card facility in their shortest possible interval.


Bangladesh is a developing country. Without developing the banking sector it is not possible for the economy to progress rapidly. In such conditions SJIBL, is trying to develop banking sector through delivering service to the people beyond satisfaction with the Islamic shariah. The successful launching and operation of Islamic banks in Bangladesh has established the fact that banking without interest is feasible. Islamic banks have brought together many depositors and entrepreneurs under their fold and coverage. These depositors and entrepreneurs so long avoided interest-based banking on grounds of religious injunctions.

The purpose of the report was to focus on the overall activities of SJIBL, Rajshahi and to evaluate its customer service quality and also to provide some suggestions to improve its different aspects. The whole banking sector of Bangladesh is facing challenges, competition is growing day by day. So without offering differentiate products and better services it is not possible to withstand this competition as it is the precondition of customer satisfaction. SJIBL has a large number of differentiated products and its service quality is also high. So hope it will be in the top of the banking sector in the next couple of years because the upcoming challenges demand higher performance level and utmost customer satisfaction.
