  • If the account holder sends the bearer to receive cash, the leaf must be signed by the account holder and bearer name should be clearly written on the leaf at the required place. Both the bearer and account holder should sign on the leaf. Bearer will sign back to the leaf.
  • Whether the leaf is “open” or “crossed”. If it is crossed, the bearer cannot withdraw cash.
  • Now if the above things are ok, token can be cut down.

  • Clients have to resubmit their leaf (other than token) in the computer counter.
  • Authorized officer enter the account number into eIBS (specialized software for IBBL).
  • If the account balance agree with the withdrawal of the amount of money (remaining the minimum balance), authorized officer debits the party’s account and credits the same to IBG account.
  • If the operation is done by successfully, computer automatically gives an transaction ID.
  • It should be written on the leaf with authorized signature.
  • Then the authorized officer will pass it to another officer to verify the signature (scanned copy of card carry the picture & signature of the clients).

Principles of Deposit Collection:

Deposit is the life blood of a bank. From the history and origin of the banking system we know that deposit collection is the main function of a bank.  IBBL collect deposit based on the following principles

Al-Wadia Principles:

As per Shariah “Amanat” means to keep something to any reliable person / institution for safe and secured preservation of the same keeping its ownership unchanged and which will be returned to the owner of the fund on demand as its primary shape. In case of Amanat bank or any other person / institution can not use investment and amalgamate the fund of Amanat with the banks with any prior permission of the owner of the Amanat. But Al-Wadia principle indicates to some extend addition of the concept of Amanat, in which there is, a provision to obtain prior permission from the owner of the fund to use, invest, and amalgamate the said fund with their other funds and return the same within banking hour on demand. Bank is here muaddah and depositor is muaddi.

Mudaraba Principles:

Mudaraba is a form of partnership where one of the contracting parties called the ‘Shahib-Al-Mal”, who provides a specified amount of capital and acts like a sleeping or dormant partner while the other party, called ‘Mudarib’ (Entrepreneur) who provides the entrepreneurship and management for carrying on any venture, trade, industry or service with the objective of earning profit. Under this arrangement profit is distribute under ratio and loss (if any) will be borne by “Sahib-Al-Mal’.

Principles of Distribution of profit to Mudaraba Depositors:

The principles of calculation and distribution of profit to Mudaraba depositors generally followed by Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited are as under:

Mudaraba depositors share income derived from investment activities i.e. from the use of fund.

Mudaraba depositors do not share any income derived from miscellaneous banking services where the use of fund is not involved, such as communication, exchange, service charge and other fees realized by the bank in connection with sale and purchase of Demand Drafts, Telegraphic Transfers and Mail Transfer etc.

Mudaraba deposits get priority in the matters of investment over bank’s equity and other cost free funds.

Mudaraba depositors do not share any income derived from investing bank’s equity and other cost free funds.

The amount of statutory cash reserve and liquidity reserve which are required to be maintained with Bangladesh Bank is deducted from the aggregate balance of Mudaraba deposits to arrive at the net balance of profit sharing deposit.

The gross income derived from investment during the accounting year is. at first allocated to Mudaraba deposits and cost free funds according to their proportion in the total investment.

Minimum 65% is distributed to Mudaraba depositors applying the rates of weight- age shone below. Mudaraba depositor’s share of 65% of gross investment income might further be raised by the bank’s management at its discretion to rationalize the rates of profit to Mudaraba depositors but it would not be reduced during any accounting year without giving prior declaration.
