The major purpose of this report is to find out the performance, details of all the departments, functions of the Askari bank, role of Askari bank in the economy of Pakistan and to prepare a comprehensive report which covers all the aspects of the bank. In this report, I did the same thing which is required to study the organization on the whole.

It was a great experience to work at the Askari bank; the things happening were totally different from what we read in the books. In the period of 6 weeks internship at Askari Bank Township Branch, Lahore (0056), I had a chance to have the exposure of how a bank undergoes its functions. I tried my best to gain a practical exposure and an experience to plan, develop, present and report and to seek a challenging career oriented position in the field of general banking by using the potential of hard work and professional skills. It was a large size branch consists of 1 branch manager, 1 operation manager, 1 in charge general banking, 3 OGIII officers, 8 OGII officers, 5 OGI and some other clerical staff. As internee I have to help the different employee in the Branch in their daily work. I was asked to work on the entire general banking except cash dealings.

First I found out the brief history of the Askari bank to know about the past of the bank then I found the details about the present functions, its professional out look to attract the customers and to increase the business. During my internship I was sent to different departments including Accounts, Credits, customer dealing Account opening, Clearing, Remittances and Foreign exchange/Trade.

Account opening department gave a chance to know about the account opening process and requirements. In customer dealing, I learnt how to satisfy the customers. Remittance department explains the different kind of services provided by the Askari bank. I tried to explain the (D.D, Pay Order, M.T, T.T) opening, clearing and encashment process. Accounts department shows all the working of the bank during the whole period. This department prepares the

balance sheet, income statement, salary slip of the employees and disburses the salary to the employees.

The foreign exchange department provides the detail about the trade of the country the foreign exchange covers imports, exports and foreign currencies. I learnt about LC opening, lodgment and retirement and other ways of making an import. The foreign currency department shows the currency come in and goes out of the country. Credit department covers all the schemes which the bank offers to benefit the people of the country.

At the very end I performed the financial ratio & SWOT analysis of Askari bank to show the actual position of the bank and to find out the strength, weakness and advantages of the bank. By analyzing the overall performance I can say that the bank has improved its working. And it links to be getting better in profit earning sector and it is expected that the Profitability of the bank will be improved in the future year.

After the analysis I give suggestions to bank which I feel during my internship program the bank can make rapid progress and can increase its business and performance. So at the end we can say in the modern era it has achieved a destination where other competitive modern banks can simply reach. For the year 2006, Askari bank has won the Best Consumer Banking Award 2006 from the consumer Association of Pakistan, the Best Retail Banking Award 2008 from Pakistan Guarantee Export Corporation Ltd. and The Best Corporate Report Award for the year 2008 from the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Pakistan (ICAP), and the Institute of Cost and Management Accountants in Pakistan (ICAMP).

When this finance is extended then bank will debit the SBP account and credit to customer account. It is of two types:  Pre Shipment Finance Part I Pre shipment finance part I is extended for one year. If the customer will not receive the document within 7 days then bank issue a letter to the importer and now letter of credit (LC) is converted into absolute liability. PAYMENT AGAINST DOCUMENT (PAD) When the bank receives bill of lading and other commercial document from the exporter then bank will pay to reimbursing bank of exporter.

All the value-added expenses like excise duty. In PDA the bank is only responsible to make payment but in FIM bank makes payment from its own funds these types of finances have specified rate of mark up and time period. And now bank will charge the mark up and import service charges from the importer. Funds of SBP are involved in this finance. Rate of mark up is 2% from which 1 are for SBP and the bank charges 1%. SBP introduce special export finance schemes to the exporter at cheaper mark up rate and also offer export rebates.

The bank charges commission in these finances in respect of markup. 25% cash margin is charged and also some collateral is taken.

Three beneficiaries of this non-fund based finance are:    j Bid Bound Government Financial Institutions Others 44 | P a g e . In this way exporter can avail half of the limit of total export business transacted last year. It is an obligation of bank and if the customer declares default then bank is liable to make payment.This facility is for existing exporter.

j Other Guarantee If the bank issue any guarantee other than above likes to cove the credit sale. This type of guarantee is called bid bounds guarantee and now contractor will quote the rate in tender against this guarantee. so it is called maintenance bound guarantee. j Shipping Guarantee This type of guarantee is very rare and issued against 100% cash margin. j Performance Bound When the bid is accepted then bank will give guarantee that contractor will perform the task assigned within the specific period of time. j Maintenance Bound Guarantee This guarantee is issued for the maintenance of work performed by the contractor.

Askari bank has the wide range of ATM Network across the country. Askari Bank has opened all its branches at commercial areas so that the customers or clients face no problems in reaching to the bank. saving the precious time of the customers. I have come across the following SWOT analysis of the bank. They can easily get the information. STRENGTHS ACBL was organized by Army Welfare Trust (AWT) so it has strong army background. computer based teller equipment and electronic funds transfers among the others. Every information regarding the transactions in customers¶ deposits has been computerized. Askari commercial bank is the leading private sector bank in the banking network in Pakistan with many of them online branches in major cities of the country. 55 | P a g e . During six weeks of my stay at Askari Commercial Bank. ACBL management is quite prepared to adopt the latest advancements in technology resulting in revolution in the banking operations such as check clearing process. The customers can withdraw their funds any time at all the ATM Sites. Askari Bank provide the good Phone banking service that is very attractive for those customers who don¶t have time to personally come to the bank i. All the branches of Askari Bank are online and automated. Thus.ways to successfully tackle with the threats and ultimately converting them in the strengths for the organization. The annual financial statement are prepared by the bank in accordance with the international accounting standard and are also published quarterly and half yearly accounts to provide information to their stakeholders for taking well informed decisions. Askari bank has got a reliable and easy to use internal computer system.e.

The employees are constantly rotated from one job to another job. and environment enjoy good public reputation and are able to reap the benefits in the long run. Only few decisions are taken at the lower level. still the bankers use to make their entries in the accounting register also. The employee has know-how of the working in all the departments but not master in on work. These are positive external environmental factors effecting the organization. There are great opportunities for ACBL for the expansion of its business. Askari bank growing business requires an extensive branch network. Advertising done by the bank is less than the requirement. But I think this is not a very good tactics used by the management. WEAKNESSES In my opinions these are the points that might be detrimental to the efficiency and profitability of the bank. They have to learn based on their observations and also their mistakes. Askari Bank can extend its network in other countries.The organizations showing concern for the people. Bank¶s marketing department is not very strong. There is no specific training program arranged for the new recruiters. It can enhance its profitability by making use of new technology. The bank has still some of the traditional ways of operations in this advanced technological environment. OPPORTUNITIES The bank is facing the following threats and opportunities currently. Foreign investors in the banking industry are welcomed in Pakistan as they bring not only the precious foreign exchange investment but also 56 | P a g e . ACBL management is quite sensitive to this issue. ethics. Askari Bank has use computerized accounting system but. Almost all the decision-making is in the hands of the upper management. Centralization is effective only certain levels but it is also times costly.

skills and techniques of modern banking system. innovative products and services. Business of these banks is also growing with very high pace. My Bank and Bank Alfalah. Frauds are also a great threat. It has only few branches¶ of Askari. Askari Bank has Branches in Remote Areas. Meezan Bank. But it is not fully Islamic banking. So Askari Commercial Bank has been performing very well in the presence of unstable political and economic situation but this uncertainty is a continuous threat for the bank. Union Bank. As the banking procedures are complicated that is why general public takes interest into other options of investments like in shares of companies and in Term Finance Certificates In the Bank there are the employees who are not satisfy with their job and there is high rate of turnover. like recently a great fraud happened with The Bank of Punjab FINANCIAL RATIOS profitability ratios Market ratios liquidity ratios portfolio management capital gearing ratios 57 | P a g e . So the process of recruitment is time consuming and costly. It has become an ideal bank for the importers and exporters. Faysal Bank. THREATS Askari Commercial Bank is facing a strong competition by its major competitors. Foreign Trade is the focus of bank. Askari Bank has an Islamic Banking system also. The charges of the services that the bank receives from the customers are higher than their competitors. So it loses many customers for this reason.
