When a particular branch receives instruments drawn on the other bank within the clearing zone and sends those instruments for collection through the clearing arrangement is considered as Outward Clearing for that particular branch. This branch is known as collecting branch. In other words, inward clearing is for our branch and outward clearing is for other banks or branches. When we receive inward clearing we have to debit our customer account and when we receive outward clearing we have to send it to relevant bank for payment and we credit the amount to Customer Account. All cheques, demand drafts and other credit instruments tendered for the credit of customers account will be delivered by the depositor at the clearing counter. Any deposits received by post will also be sent over to the clearing counter. The counter officer shall at the time of receipt examine such deposits carefully to ensure that: 1.

Clearing House In Bangladesh Bank, there is a very large room, which contains fifty (50) or more tables for each bank that is called the clearing house.In clearing house section,usually the authorized officials attends all the cheques for collection in their bank drawn on other banks and settle down their transaction by the arrangement of clearing house,Usually two houses sit for settlements which are as follows.

Nature of Clearing House 1st Clearing House Return Clearing House or High value house

First House Generally all the collection cheques are collected from other banks drawn on Jamuna Bank Limited in this first clearing house. First house sit at 10 AM and return house sits at 5 PM.

Same day house or High Value House Only the branches of member banks located in Motijheel Foreign Exchange area and the cheques value which is equal or above TK500000/= enjoy the same day clearing facility. The same day house starts at 10AM and its 11.00 AM.

3.9 IBC/OBC: By OBC, we mean that those cheques drawn on other banks which are not within the same clearing house. Officer gives OBC seal on this type of cheques and later sends a letter to the manager of the branch of the some bank located in the branch on which cheque has been drawn. After collection of that bill branch advises the concerned branch in which cheques has been presented to credit the customer account through Inter Branch Credit Advice (IBCA). In absence of the branch of the same bank, officer sends letter to manager of the bank on which the cheques is drawn. That bank will send pay order in the name of the branch. This is the procedure of OBC mechanism. Actually OBC comes from the

25 | P a g e

outside banks branch, or inter branches. Suppose AGRANI Bank, Jatrabari Branch sent a Cheque, which no: 012536, Tk. 5,00,000/- to Jamuna Bank Limited against AGRANI Bank Motijheel Foreign Exchange Corp. Branch. So this cheque could be an OBC. Now what Jamuna Bank Limited has to do? Jamuna Bank Limited tries to collect this cheque through Bangladesh Bank Clearing House, and credited clients account.

3.9.2 IBC Collection Process 3.10 Credit Department The credit department of a bank is the basic element in its organization. It is true that in the past many banks have been able to do without credit departments and that at the present time there are not a few of them - chiefly the smaller and less advanced types of institution - which have no credit departments, or only very rudimentary organizations of the sort. These, however, usually accept the work of credit departments operated by their correspondents. The true work of a bank credit department is done whenever any loan is made. It may be that the work of credit analysis is incidentally performed by the president or a vice-president of the bank or by some other assigned officer who happens to have charge of the work of lending, The Credit Departments mission is to help sell the companys products and services to all qualified customers while providing the best possible credit and collection services that we can. Credit department main workings areas area as follows: Offer/inform to Customers about different loan product To know details about Customer business Credit proposal preparation Provide checklist and relevant form Verify all required document Place for approval with all supporting documents After Approval disburse the amount to respective account

3.10.1 Loan Disburse Process Before issuing any kind of loan we need to the following task 1. To know details about customer Business 2. Credit proposal preparation 3. Provide checklist and relevant form 4. Place for approval with all supporting documents 5. After Approval disburse the amount to respective account

For getting loan clients need to submit the following documents and concerned credit officer will verify. 27 | P a g e

*Loan application form *Applicants National ID/Driving License/Passport copy *Photographs of applicants (studio photo) *Salary certificate for salaried person *Guarantor *Bank Statement *Others Branch liability *Others Bank Liability *Photocopy of Utility Bill documents * Trade license * Personal and business account statement for last one year * Applicants TIN certificate * Copies of all existing loans sanction letter and repayment history for last one year *Rental deed for rental income and ownership deed of rented property *Apartment allotment letter/Deed of agreement/property ownership deed *other all property related documents copy All documents are not necessary for all schemes

After physical verification of clients Business and property as well as all the documents concerned credit officer prepare check list, LDCL(Loan documentary Check list) and fill up CIB form and will send it to Bangladesh Bank CIB department through Head office. After getting no obligation bank can sanction loan to the client.

3.10.2 Credit Related Term Primary Security Primary security means specific assets against which loan granted. In the case of term loan for factory building in this regards "Land' is primary security. Further in the case of working capital loan, "stock and book debts" is considered as primary security and if any additional security provides other than "primary Security" it is called collateral security

28 | P a g e

Collateral Security Specific asset (such as land or building) pledged as a secondary (and subordinate) security by a borrower or guarantor. The principal security is usually the borrower's personal guaranty, or the cash flow of a business. Except for highly creditworthy customers (who can get loans against only their signatures) lenders always demand a collateral if the primary security is not considered to be reliable or sufficient enough to recover the loan in case of a default. A lien is created when the collateral is registered in the public records office, giving the registered lender priority over other lenders on the same asset or property. Lenders have the legal right to seize and sell collateral if the borrower cannot pay back the loan as agreed. Sometimes the asset being financed (such as accounts receivable, inventory, and machinery) is itself used as collateral; in home mortgages the property being bought serves as collateral. See also collateral value and cross collateral clause.

CIB (Credit Information Bureau) A Credit Information Bureau is an organization that collects and collates credit data on borrowers from its member financial institutions. The financial data is then aggregated in system and the resulting information (in the form of credit reports) is made available on request to contributing member financial institutions for the purposes of credit assessment, credit scoring and credit risk management. The major purpose of this database is to enable the financial institutions to know the credit history of their prospective customers thus enabling them to make a more prudent decision.CIB form is Bangladesh Banks necessary prerequisite to make any loan .To create a disciplined environment for borrowing, the automated CIB service provides credit related information for prospective and existing borrowers. With this improved and efficient system, risk management will be more effective. Banks and financial institutions may furnish credit information to CIB database 24 by 7 around the year; and they can access credit reports from CIB online.

LDCL (Loan Documentary Check list) Checklist is very much essential for making any loan, By this checklist bank can forecast the loan risk. Checklist to be used in connection with loans (both commercial and consumer) to ensure the proper notices and disclosures are given and procedures are followed. One set is used by the lender as a checklist when doing loans; the other 29 | P a g e

set is used by the compliance officer when reviewing the loans for compliance. In addition to the loan approval disclosure documents that will need to be signed by you after you complete your loan application and receive your preliminary loan approval, my staff will require copies of the following documents to formally approve your mortgage for closing.

Pledging Offering assets to a lender is collateral for a loan. Though the asset will be pledged to the lender, it still owned by the borrower unless he/she defaults on the loan.

Hypothecation A contract by which property is hypothecated; a right which a creditor has in or to the property of his debtor, in virtue of which he may cause it to be sold and the price appropriated in payment of his debt. This is a right in the thing. Arrangement where the grantee (Creditor) has the possession and right to sell, but not the title
