 To know the better customer service.



In order to make the report more meaningful, presentable, a complete one and to meet the goal of this report different data and information are required. Those data and information were collected from various sources, such as, primary and secondary which is showed below:

 The “Primary Sources” are as follows:

Scope Of the Report:

As I was sent to Rupali Bank Ltd. shadorghat Branch, the scope of the study is only limited to this branch. The report covers its overall department wise function, structure and performance. The report also covers details about Rupali Bank Ltd.

Literature review :

During the three months internship program at Federation Branch, almost all the desks have been observed more or loss. This internship program, in fast, has been arranged for gaining knowledge of practical banking and to compare this practical knowledge with theoretical knowledge. Comparing practical knowledge with theoretical involves identification of weakness in the branch activities and making recommendations for solving the weakness identified. Though all departments and sections are covered in the internship program, it is not possible to go to the depth of each activities of branch because of time limitation. So, objectives of this internship program  have not been fulfilled with complete satisfaction. However, highest effort has been given to achieve the objectives the internship programmed.

 During the internship, it is found that the branch provides all the conventional banking services as well as some specialized financing activities to the economy. General banking services department is the largest department of the branch in terms of manpower and profit earning. In this year, it earns more than 60% of branch’s total profit. Thus by providing this various services,Sodhorghat  Branch, RUPALI Bank is playing an important in the banking system and in the payment system of Bangladesh.


 The present study was not out of limitations. But as an intern it was a great opportunity for me to know the banking activities of Bangladesh specially Rupali Bank ltd. Some constraints are appended bellow:

  • As some of the fields of banking are still not covered by our courses, there was difficulty in understanding some activities.
  • 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.
  • Since the bank personals were very busy, they could provide me very little time.
  • Another problem is that creates a lot of confusions regarding verification of data. In some cases more than one person were interviewed to clarify each concept as many of the bankers failed to provide clear-cut idea about the job they perform.
  • The clients were too busy to provide me much time for interview.

Scenario regarding the main topic of the report in Bangladesh
Scenario of General bank and Customer satisfaction in Bangladesh:

 Bank is the financial institution. Bank collect money in different sectors and give this money in other sector. Our modern business organization is more dependable with bank. Not only business organization but also all other sector( such as private,owner and so on) transaction money with bank.  General bank deal with the daily transaction process.

Create fund: Basically bank collect money in different organization,personal and others area. It is the part of general bank. Bank gives interest the collecting fund.

  To help the business transaction: No nation cannot development without the business. Our business sector collects money and gives the money in other party. Bank helps the business organization by TT, PO, DD and so on.

  Help for economic development: Account opening section, collect                 money, withdrawn money and others sector is the part of GB. In this sector is the main part of the bank. Bank mainly earns money with TT, DD, PO etc. Bank gives tax to the government and government prepared the country’s infrastructure development. Sometime bank spend money for social development.

All others bank deal with the customer. No bank doesn’t improve without customer satisfaction. Basically GB and Customer satisfaction is the main part of the bank. When the bank stable then the bank firstly permit to conduct those sector.

SWOT Analysis Of Rupali Bank Ltd

 SWOT Analysis:

SWOT analysis is the detailed study of an organization’s exposure and potential in perspective of its strength, weakness, opportunity and threat. This facilitates the organization to make their existing line of performance and also foresee the future to improve their performance in comparison to their competitors. As though this tool, an organization can also study its current position, it can also be considered as an important tool for making changes in the strategic management of the organization.

So we can say that it is a technique used by the credit officers to evaluate credit proposal submitted by company especially by the production concern. Here,

S –        Denotes Strength

W –      Denotes Weakness

O –       Denotes Opportunity

T –       Denotes Threat


—    Rupali Bank ltd has already established a favorable reputation in the banking industry of the country. It is one of the leading govt sector commercial banks in Bangladesh. The bank has already shown a tremendous growth in the profits and deposits sector.

—    Rupali Bank ltd has provided its banking service with a top leadership and management position. The Board of Directors headed by its Chairman Dr. Ahmed Al-Kabir is a skilled person in business. M. Farid Uddin world is the Managing Director of the bank management team.. The top management officials have all worked in reputed banks and their years of banking experience, skill, and expertise will continue to contribute towards further expansion of the bank.

—        Rupali Bank ltd has already achieved a high growth rate accompanied by an impressive profit growth rate in 2004. The number of deposits and the loans and advances are also increasing rapidly.

—       Rupali Bank ltd has an interactive corporate culture. The working environment is very friendly, interactive and informal. And, there are no hidden barriers or boundaries while communicate between the superior and the employees. This corporate culture provides as a great motivation factor among the employees.

 —     Rupali Bank ltd has the reputation of being the provider of good quality services too its, potential customers.


—        The main important thing is that the bank has no clear mission statement and strategic plan. The banks not have any long-term strategies of whether it wants to focus on retail banking or become a corporate bank. The path of the future should be determined now with a strong feasible strategic plan.

—        The bank failed to provide a strong quality-recruitment policy in the lower and some mid level position. As a result the services of the bank seem to be Deus in the present days.

__        The poor service quality has become a major problem for the bank. The quality of the service at Rupali Bank ltd is higher than the Dhaka Bank, Prime Bank or Dutch Bangla Bank etc. But the bank has to compete with the Multinational Bank .

—        Some of the job in Rupali Bank ltd has no growth or advancement path. So lack of motivation exists in persons filling those positions. This is a weakness of Rupali Bank ltd that it is having a group of unsatisfied employees.

__        In terms of promotional sector, Rupali Bank ltd has to more emphasize on that. They have to follow aggressive marketing campaign.


—         In order to reduce the business risk, Rupali Bank ltd has to expand their business portfolio. The management can consider options of starting merchant banking or diversify into leasing and insurance sector.

—       The activity in the secondary financial market has direct impact on the primary financial market. Banks operate in the primary financial market. Investment in the secondary market governs the national economic activity. Activity in the national economy controls the business of the bank.

—       Opportunity in retail banking lies in the fact that the country’s increased   population is gradually learning to adopt consumer finance. The bulk of our population is middle class. Different types of retail lending products have great appeal to this class. So a wide variety of retail lending products has a very large and easily pregnable market.

—     A large number of private banks coming into the market in the recent time. In this competitive environment Rupali Bank ltd must expand its product line to enhance its sustainable competitive advantage.

—       In addition of those things, Rupali Bank ltd can introduce special corporate scheme for the corporate customer or officer who have an income level higher from the service holder. At the same time, they can introduce scheme or loan for various service holders. And the scheme should be separate according to the professions, such as engineers, lawyers, doctors.


—    All sustaining multinational banks and upcoming foreign and private banks pose significant threats to Rupali Bank ltd. If that happens the intensity of competition will rise further and banks will have to develop strategies to compete against these local and foreign banks.

—        The default risks of all term loans have to be minimized in order to sustain in the financial market. Because of default risk the organization may become bankrupt. Rupali Bank ltd has to remain vigilant about this problem so that proactive strategies are taken to minimize this problem if not eliminate.

—    The low compensation package of the employees from mid level to lower level position is not able to keep the employee motivation. As a result, good quality employees leave the organization and it effects the organization as a whole.

Finally we can say that, top management officials have experience skill and proficiency on banking. RBL has got impressive decoration, for that it creates the attention of the potential customers. Lovely environment boost up capability of the employees. Besides these RBL has adequate capital, high interest rate for DPS and Savings account and it’s goodwill. For poor employment system, RBL is loosing its reputation. For this reason right people are also not in right place for reference appointment. Another weakness is low interest rate of FDR, for which RBL is loosing their customers. This analyzes the opportunity, which will be available to a company in near future, such as withdraw of tax, incentives, export, exemption and more credit facilities etc. RBL can also adopt diversification strategy in expanding the business line into leasing and insurance company. It analyzes the threats, which may face the company such as international law, withdraw of most favorable nation (MFN) and GSP facilities etc. Some contemporary, multinational and upcoming banks are competitors of RBL. These bank poses threat for RBL. So RBL should take necessary steps to compete with them.


SWOT analysis is involves more than just developing the four lists of strength, weakness, opportunities, and threats. The bank Swot analysis indicate the overall situation that are skilled human resource, IT technology, insufficient ATM booth, customer service , market opportunity etc.

Using the 4 lists to draw conclusion about a bank’s overall situation:

    Acting on the conclusion to

1.Better match a bank’s strategy  to its resource, strengths, and market opportunities.

2.Correct the important weakness.

3.Defend against external threats.

What can be obtain Swot analysis:

1.Where on the scale from alarmingly weak to exceptionally strong close the attractiveness of the bank’s situation rank?

2.What are the attractive and unattractive aspects of the bank’s situation ?

3.What are the external threats weakness, competitive deficiencies to the bank’s future prospect.

Prepare Action Plan:

1.Necessary for banking activities that expanded new technology

2.Introduce mobile banking service

These deposits are withdrawn able without notice, e.g. current deposits. Rupali Bank ltd accepts demand deposits through the opening of –

a) Current account

b) Savings account

c) Call deposits from the fellow bankers

Time deposits:

A deposit which is payable at a fixed date or after a period of notice is a time deposit. Rupali Bank ltd accepts time deposits through Fixed Deposit Receipt (FDR), Short Term Deposit (STD).

 While accepting these deposits, a contract is done between the bank and the customer. When the banker opens an account in the name of a customer, there arises a contract between the two. This contract will be valid one only when both the parties are competent to enter into contracts. As account opening initiates the fundamental relationship & since the banker has to deal with different kinds of persons with different legal status, Rupali Bank ltd officials remain very much careful about the competency of the customers.

 Cash section:

 Banks, as a financial institution, accept surplus money from the people as deposit and give them opportunity to withdraw the same by cheque. But among the banking activities, cash department play an important role. It does the main function of a commercial bank i.e. receiving the deposit and paying the cash on demand. As this department deals directly with the customers, the reputation of the bank depends much on it. The functions of a cash department are described bellow:

This department is called as Accounts Department. If any discrepancy arises regarding any transaction this department report to the concerned department.

Service Level & Customer Satisfaction:

The Process of measuring the Satisfaction:

The satisfaction is an abstract task. The state of satisfaction of the Customers has been measured under some criteria. The criteria are given below.

1.    The Bankers can understand and realize the Customers’ Problem properly and accurately.

2.    The Bankers can solve the Customers’ Problem quickly and properly.
3.    The Bankers are very friendly and helpful to the Customers
4.    The Bank has wide spread Service Facility and Link
5.    The Customers can receive the Services from very close to their House and Business Outlet.
6.    The Phone Link has increased the Service Level of this Bank to great extent
7.    How much the Customers are satisfied with the overall Service of the Bank
8.    The Bankers provide Sufficient Information about their Product and Information necessary to the Customers

The respondents expressed their answer in a 5 point grading scale. Any point close to 5(five) indicates the higher satisfaction of the Customer about the criteria and any point close to 1(one) indicates the dissatisfaction of the Customer regarding the criteria.

A total of 25 respondents expressed their views. The maximum number under each criterion is 125 (25 x 5). The state of Service Level of the Bank in terms of the satisfaction of the Customers is expressed in the points—————-

  1. 1.   Very Good                          Total Score ——- (115 to 125)           (Out of 125)
  2. 2.   Good                                    Total Score ——- (115 to 125)           (Out of 125)
  3. 3.   Satisfactory             Total Score ——- (115 to 125)           (Out of 125)
  4. 4.   Moderate/Average Total Score ——- (115 to 125)           (Out of 125)
  1. 5.   Poor                                     Total Score ——- (115 to 125)           (Out of 125)

So the Service Level of the Bank has been expressed in these 5(five) points.

These 5(five) points stands for some special meaning and explanation. The statements that stand with these points are given below.

1.   Very Good:

The Service Level is very high quality. The Bank enjoyed a huge advantage in this regard. This will help the Bank to get more Customers and maintain a warm relation with them. The Bank is really getting benefit from this type of Service while maintaining the highly satisfaction from the Customers point of view. So it can be ranked as High-quality Service.

2.   Good:

The Service is competitive in the Banking Business Market and is one of the strong points for the Bank. The Customers are satisfied in an acceptable way for the Service provided by the Bank. The Bank enjoys some advantage in this regard of the Service, which helps the Bank to create new Customers and maintain well relation with the existing ones.

3.   Satisfactory:

The Bank is doing well in the regard of this Service. But it is not a strong point for the Bank. The Bank does not enjoy any advantage over other Banks in this regard. The Customers are satisfied but do not have much positive impression for this Service of the Bank. The Bank needs to improve the Level of this Service in order to gain comparative advantage to other Bank.

4.   Moderate/Average:

The Service Level is very ordinary. It is considered as one of the vulnerable point of the Bank. The other Banks can easily enjoy superiority over this Bank in regard of this Service attract the attention of the Customers to their respective Banks. The Bank really needs to improve this regard as the Customers are not satisfied with the Service.

5.   Poor

The Service is really worst and the Customers are quite dissatisfied in this regard. It is a real disadvantage and weak point for the Bank. In order to maintain the Customers loyalty to the Bank, the Bank needs to improve this Service with no delay. If the Bank fails to improve this sector, there is a great possibility that the Bank will loose a huge cluster of its present Customers and lag behind in the competitive market.

       There are various types of remittance money sucs as

  Pay Order

  Demand Draft

  Telephonic Transfer

  Mail Transfer Advice

Liquidity Ratio:

  • Current Ratio













Table: 14 Current Ratio

Source: Annual Report of RBL & Pubali Bank Limited (PBL) (2008, 2009, 2010)

We know that, the current ratio measures a firm’s liquidity by measuring the portion of its current asset relative to its current liabilities and the higher the ratio, the higher the liquidity of the firm. The graph shows that, in 2008, current ratio of RBL and PBL were almost same but RBL current ration was better than PBL in 2009 and 2010 respectively 1.17 and 1.11. In 2010, RBL’s current ratio reduced at 1.11.  So it can be said that, lower the current ratio, the lower the ability of the firm to pay its bills.

 Activity Ratio

  • Total Asset Turnover













Table: 15 Total Asset Turnover

Source: Annual Report of RBL & PBL (2008, 2009, 2010)

We know greater the total asset turnover; it is more efficient and 4 to 6 times is standard position. The graph shows that, the total asset turnover ratio of RBL was more than PBL in 2008 and 2009 but PBL has generated maximum level of turnover in year 2010 comparison with RBL  It can be said that PBL was more efficiently use its assets to generate income.

Profitability Ratio:

  • Net Profit Margin













Table: 18 Net Profit Margin

Source: Annual Report of RBL & PBL (2008, 2009, 2010)

The graph shows that, in 2010 net profit margin of RBL was so lower i.e. 7.27% but on the other hand PBL’s net profit margin was more than RBL i.e. 25.20% and over three years RBL and PBL’s net profit margin fluctuated. The higher the firm’s net profit margin, the better. So RBL should emphasis to increase its net profit margin.

 Return on Asset (ROA):













Table: 19 Return on Asset (ROA)

Source: Annual Report of RBL & PBL (2008, 2009, 2010)

 After having a careful view on the graph, PBL had maximum return on asset than RBL over three years that means PBL remains more efficient to generate additional ROA than RBL. In 2009, RBL earned 1.17% on each taka of asset investment where PBL earned 1.94% on each taka. But in 2010 RBL’s return on asset silently decreased i.e. 1.15% than 2009 it is not a good sign for a bank, in this year PBL’s return on asset was 2.44%. So the higher the firm’s return on total assets, the better.

Investment to Deposit Ratio













Table: 21 Investment to Deposit Ratio

Source: Annual Report of RBL & PBL (2008, 2009, 2010)

As we know that the ratio measures the bank’s efficiency in promoting its investment products the customer and in using its funds collected from the customers to by measuring the percentage of total deposit that the bank has disbursed as loan and advances and the higher the ratio the higher the banks efficiency and vice-versa. The graph shows that, RBL’s investment remained in better position than PBL last two years that means RBL increased its deposit investment. It is a good sign.


Internship is very helpful and essential for the students of Masters of Business Administration because it helps to understand the actual job pattern during the orientation period. I enjoyed every moment of the work. I have learnt a lot but I found some areas that can be developed also.

  • Findings of the Study:

Team work is a major strength in general section as well as overall branch.But sometime personel create problem for different reson such as traditional system use, lower salary etc.In this problem easily solution by the use of computer in every system and increase the employee saliary.

 Major banking activities of this branch are related with only one organization, Securities And Exchange Commission Ltd. But it donot use the online system.

 In preparing Bangladesh Bank return for general banking use traditional techniques and same data has to record several times; it is time consuming.To remove this problem the bank use the computerized system.

 This branch follows conventional banking approaches in its lending activities and the amount of loans and advances is not satisfactory in regard to its deposits.

Cumstomer behavior is changeable. So customer satisfaction is the very difficult             part.Sometime customer close their account for  needs high time to withdrawn   money.Because Rupali Bank use the manual system. Rupali bank easily

 solution this problem by the use of computer.

Lack of knowledge to the employee.For this reason they don’t properly conduct the banking activities. Bank easily solution to give the training of the employee.

 Overall Rupali Bank Ltd. is a very good organization. It is in the right way to get    focus of the people to get business. If it can overcome its limitations it will be more efficient in its work and can give more services to the people as well as can earn more profit. At last I again want to thank all the employees and management of Rupali Bank Bank Ltd. for their suggestions, advice and cooperation.

Conclusion And Recommendations:


The Banking sector in any country plays an important role in economic activities. Bangladesh is no exception of that. As because it’s financial development and economic development are closely related. That is why the private commercial banks are playing significant role in this regard.

From the practical implementation of customer dealing procedure during the whole period of my practical orientation in Rupali Bank Ltd. I have reached a firm and concrete conclusion in a very confident way. I believe that my realization will be in harmony with most of the banking thinkers. It is quite evident that to build up an effective and efficient banking system to the highest desire level computerized transaction is a must.

This report focused and analyzed on General banking department of Rupali Bank Ltd, Pollobi Branch. Rupali Bank Ltd a popular bank in Bangladesh but its contribution in socioeconomic prospect of Bangladesh has the greater significance.

JBL is attaining offer of special deposit scheme with higher benefits, which is a crying need for long-term position in financial market. Because of the entrance of more banks in the financial market, deposits will splits over. Therefore, it is high time to hold some permanent customers by offering special deposit scheme otherwise in future amount of deposit may come down. To strengthen the future prospect of branch, it is an emergency to collect more deposits.


  • Banking is a service-oriented marketing. Its business profit depends on its service quality. That’s why the authority always should be aware about their service quality.
  • To provide quality service to the customer it is necessary to have a trained team of an organization or an institution. For this reason the bank should recruit more fresh, bright and energetic persons such as MBA, BBA, and MBM etc.
  • As soon as possible the bank should start more branches in Dhaka city as well as the other cities of the country.
  • RBL is offering very medium interest rate of FDR, where as others banks are giving high interest rate than RBL. For this RBL is loosing their customers. So RBL should increase their rate of interest for FDR.
  • Now a day’s world is going very fast. Now, most of the banks open online customer service system. Though, Already has introduced on line banking system, but it has problem every day i.e. Jam, slow, Hanging etc. It may be developed on line banking for quick service and customer’s satisfaction.
    • In general banking department it is necessary to implement modern banking process instead of traditional system. It should be more computerized.
      • Account opening form could be more elaborated easily understandable.
      • Evening Banking should be introduced to extend service hour for customer’s


  • One of the business strategies is promotion. Successful business depends how they can promote their products or services to the customer. In this connection to improve the business status bank should introduce more promotional programs.
  • The recruitment process of the bank is very lengthy and expensive. The bank should the cost and select the employee by restructuring the lengthy process.
  • As the clients are not in favor of introducing system, if possible the rule of introducing to open an account should be changed. Because many people are facing problem to arrange an introducer in the time of opening accounts
  • In addition with the present services they should include more services. It is badly needed to provide more services to the customer in order to compete in the market.
  • To make exchange process more prompt the authority should use modern communication system such as e-mail, fax, win fax, internet etc
