1.3Scope of the Study
The Scope of the study is confined to banking operations. As an internee in NBP themain focus of my study was on general banking procedures in the branches of NBP. Inthe first two months my focus was on the Deposits and Remittances departments. In thenext two months I studied the Advances and Finances departments. The ForeignExchange section of the bank was covered in the last two months of the internship.
1.4Limitation of the Study
The most important limitation of the study is caused by the non-availability of information in a manner required for analysis, and secondly the secrecy of the bank regarding its operations due to which certain information which are available but are notdisclosed to the outsiders.
Both Primary and Secondary sources of data were used for writing this report. The biggest source of information is however, my personal observations while working withthe staff and having discussions with them. Formally arranged interviews and discussionsalso helped me in this regards.
