A develop banking sector plays a vital role for financial stability of a country. In the BBA program, the internship is one of the vital parts, which has to be done by every student. The internship program provides an opportunity for the students to minimize the gap between theoretical and practical knowledge and will help in practical life. I got this great opportunity to perform my internship program in the DUTCH BAGLA BANK LIMITED. I have completed internship program based on theoretical and practical knowledge. A Bank is a financial institution whose main objective is the mobilization of fund from surplus unit to deficit unit. In the process of acceptance of deposits and provision of loan, Bank creates money. This characteristic feature sets Bank apart from other financial institution. A Bank can influence the money supply through lending and investment. A Bank is also an economic institution whose main objective is to earn profit through exchange of money and credit instruments. Commercial Bank is one, which is concern with accepting deposit of money from the public, Repaying on demand or otherwise and withdrawal on demand or otherwise and employing

In Bangladesh, the journey of private commercial banks is not older. The banking in Bangladesh has passed three decades through different policy environment and comprises central bank at the apex. The countrys central bank, Bangladesh bank, controls and monitors the banking industry. At present, there are 4 nationalized, 5 are specialized, 30 are local private commercial and 10 are foreign commercial banks.

1.5:METHODOLOGY OF THE STUDY


1.5.1: Data Collection For achieving the specific objective of this study, data were gathered from both primary and secondary sources. A. Primary Sources Primary data is collected through observation of the banking activities, direct conversation with the respective officers of the branch, face to face conversation with the clients. And also customers opinion is collected through Questionnaire. B. Secondary Sources
4

Data that were published before for some other reason can be collected using internal and external sources. i) Internal Secondary data: To furnish the report properly some papers has been collected from the officials of DBBL. Information from annual reports, journals, newspapers and other published documents have been used. Besides other published information about the organization, depth interview of the branch manager Sub- manager and the authorized officer have also taken.

ii)

External Secondary Data: For better interpretation some data has been collected from Bangladesh Bank. Internet Browsing is also one source of external Secondary data.

1.5.2: Sample Respondent A. Population The population in the research is mainly the branch customer and employees. This population has been selected mainly because we are conducting the survey on the perception about the matter amongst the branch customer and employees. B. Sampling Unit The sampling unit in case of this research consists of the branch customer and employees C. Sampling Frame The sampling frame usually contains a list of elements from which the sample is drawn. The survey has been conducted at different levels of customers coming to the branch such as Priority customer, Excel Customer, Corporate customer And so on. And also the different levels of employees in the branch. D. Sample Size

The sample size in our case is 20 customers of the different level and employees in the Satmosjid Road branch. 1.5.3: Sample Design The sample design used in this case is random sampling method. When taking the random sampling into consideration there is always a chance that error might occur. This happens when there is a difference in the sampling that is done during the course of the survey. There are different types of sampling that can also be done.

1.6: LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY

Lack of comprehension of the respondents was the major problem that created many confusions regarding verification of conceptual question.

Limitation of time was one of the most important factors that shortened the present study. Due to time limitation many aspects could not discussed in the present study.

Confidentiality of data was another important barrier that was faced during the conduct of this study. Every organization has their own secrecy that can not be revealed to others. While collecting data on DBBL, personnel did not disclose enough information for the sake of confidentiality of the organization.

Rush hours and business was another reason that acts as an obstacle while gathering data. Limitation of the Personal knowledge is another one. Since knowledge knows know bound, so this report is incapable to present all things with more depth.

DBBL also operates the nation's largest ATM fleet and in the process drastically cut consumer costs and fees by 80%. Moreover, DBBL choosing the low profitability route for this sector has surprised many critics. DBBL had pursued the mass automation in Banking as a CSR activity and never intended profitability from this sector. As a result it now provides unrivaled banking technology offerings to all its customers. Because of this mindset, most local banks have joined DBBL's banking infrastructure instead of pursuing their own.

CHAPTER: 03 Literature Review

33

Literature Review
To analyze the level of satisfaction customers have with DBBL, we need to know what is customer service, what is customer satisfaction and factors that affect the level of customer satisfaction. 3.1.1 Customer service It is the set of behaviors that a business undertakes during its interaction with its customers. It can also refer to a specific person or desk which is set up to provide general assistance to customers. CRM is system with which to identify and track customers needs. Four basic steps will help to ensure a greater effectiveness in your CRM system:

Establish clear and specific objectives regarding the CRM needs you wish to fulfill Plan a realistic strategy to accomplish the set objectives Identify a CRM software that matches up with set goals Evaluate on a regular basis to train and adapt your strategy to your progressive experience

3.1.2 Customer Satisfaction It refers to the satisfaction of customers in terms of how are they satisfied with the politeness, knowledge and promptness of employees in handling busy customers. It also takes into consideration the perception of the customers as to whether the product or service is worth what they are paying for it. Customers of Dutch Bangla Bank Limited have a good perception about the quality of service provided by them. From our survey we found that customers are satisfied with the overall service of DBBL . All the offers provided by DBBL are very beneficial for the customers. But in case of service benefit is not the alone factor that determines the level of satisfaction. There are many other things that take control over the overall satisfaction. For instance, service having attractive

34

offers may fail only because of rude behavior or carelessness of the provider. So it is very important to ensure other factors that are related with the success of the service.

3.1.3 Factors that determine service quality and customer satisfaction

Fig: Factors that determine service quality and customer satisfaction

35

3.1.4 The five Factors to customer Satisfaction There are five major factors identified by the experts that are essential to assure the quality of better service that will lift the level of satisfaction. They are reliability, responsiveness, assurance, empathy and tangibles. These five factors determines the quality of interaction between customer and provider, the quality of Physical environment, quality and quality of the service which leads the overall service to the position of excellence of quality. From our survey we found that how these factors affect their satisfaction level. Reliability:

It means ability to perform the promised service accurately. In case of banking reliability is very important. Because if the client pretends that the company is not able to continue its service proper in the future they will not interested to banking with DBBL . From our survey we see that most of the customers chose DBBL because they think it is reliable compare to others in case of providing various unique features. On the whole, customers have a perception that DBBL is capable to provide all the services they offered. Responsiveness:

It is another vital factor that controls customers perception about quality of service. It means willingness of the employees to help the customers. According to the perception of customers responsiveness is very important to increase the quality of the service. Even the customers ranked the importance of responsiveness in banking 7 out of 9. If employees do not response immediately to the need of the customers, valuable time of the customers will be spent unnecessarily. Even the customer may become frustrated whether he will get the service or not. The customers of DBBL replied that DBBL responses promptly. Assurance:

It means the knowledge and ability of the employees to develop trust in the mind of the clients about the completion of the task properly and on time. Customers have a great perception about

36

SBL that they perform according to their promise. Assurance has a great impact on the quality of the service because if promises are not kept customers may switch to other bank. Empathy

To ensure better service it is very important for the employees to have empathy. Empathy means giving individual attention and taking extra care of the customer. DBBL has young and energetic employees that interact with customers nicely and they continuously ask about their satisfaction and dissatisfaction of every individual. Tangibles

Tangibles are very important factor because it directs the customer mind about the quality of the service. Tangibles are physical facilities, equipment etc used in the context of service company. Interior decoration, sitting arrangements, temperature of the room, cleanness odor everything controls the perception of customers about the quality of the service. DBBL has confirmed well interior decoration in all their branches and they try to keep the standard of their services as same as for all of their branches.

4.3 : ANALYSIS
From the survey, the collected opinions and analysis were as follows: Based on the questions from 1-4, I found that the teller services performances mainly depends on the three consecutive questions. Customers said that the overall services of the teller services are good. When the question came about the time consideration 50 percent said that they are excellent and about the question of willingness 35 percent said that they are excellent. So, I can say that willingness of the teller employee should give the priority. Based on the questions from 5-7, I found that Personal Financial Consultants (PFC) are the most important of the branch. Thus the overall performance of the branch depends on the performance of the PFCs. From these three questions, I found that the overall performance of the PFCs are good. But it will be excellent if they can solve the problem of the client within a short time and they can quickly understand the problem of the clients. Based on the questions from 8-10, it is found that Customer care center which is introduced for solving the problems of the customers, are now doing a very good job to help the customer. And now the overall performance of the bank also depends on the performance of the call center. From the survey it is found that the customers are very much pleased on customer care services of DBBL. But still improvement is needed. Because the overall performance of the call center depends on the attentiveness ,courteousness and friendliness of the customer service representatives as well as their quality of service so improvement is needed in both the cases. Based on the questions from 11-15, I found that customers were satisfied about 24 hours Internet banking, SMS banking, Mobile banking of DBBL and the speed of completing every transaction. Customers were moderately satisfied about DBBLs complaint resolution. So, improvement is needed in this area. Based on the questions from 16-19, it is found that 80 percent customers were reliable about the different saving schemes provided by DBBL and also the did not face any problem during opening accounts as the speed of providing services was quite good. 85 percent customers were

48

positive about the amount required to open an account in DBBL as the amount is low compared to other banks. Based on the questions from 20-22, only 85 percent customers were satisfied about the location of branches of DBBL. 60 percent customers were satisfied about the given rates on loans. Most of the customers were satisfied and believe that the statements given by DBBL are highly reliable and accurate. Based on the questions from 23-24, 85 percent customers were satisfied about the clarity of statements given by DBBL. 70 percent customers were satisfied about using ATM cards in Dutch-Bangla Bank ATM booths and 30 percent customers said that DBBL should improve their networking services.

50

4.5 : IMPLICATION OF RESULTS


4.5.1 Drivers of satisfaction If banks are to improve their satisfaction and loyalty ratings and differentiate themselves from the competition, they need to understand what really drives satisfaction and loyalty. They also need to know which areas have the greatest room for improvements. There is little point in intervening resources in areas that are important but are performing well, or in areas which there is much room for improvement but they are not important in driving satisfaction and loyalty. Thus DBBL managers need to know what levers to push to increase these measures of success. 4.5.2 Most important attributes of the service The analysis of the importance scores across various attributes of service quality dimension pointed out some attributes that were highly important to customers. These attributes are listed below according to importance.

Speed of service Location of the branches Friendliness & courtesy of the employees Rates on Loans Savings schemes Fees & service charges

4.5.3 Satisfaction towards the most important attributes As mentioned earlier, the major concern of managers is to find out satisfaction of the customers across the various drivers of satisfaction . The results of the survey showed that customers were satisfied only across the following drivers of satisfaction: Friendliness & courtesy of the employees
51

Minimum amount to open an account Saving and deposit schemes Customer care services Speed of providing services Accurate and reliable statements Clarity of the statements

4.5.4 Assessment of the quality of service This research on customer satisfaction of DBBL was designed across some dimensions of service quality. Such dimensions were responsible for influencing the overall service quality and customer satisfaction of DBBL. The results showed that the most important dimension of service quality was reliability of the service which is ability to perform the promised service dependably and accurately . The second most important was the Assurance of service quality which consists employees knowledge, courtesy and ability to inspire trust and confidence. The results showed that customers were satisfied with this dimension of DBBL services. Friendliness of employees and safety with DBBL are some of the most satisfied attributes of this dimension. This indicates that DBBL should build on this dimension of service quality. Lastly the conveniences of the locations were another of the important dimension mentioned by the customers. But the satisfaction with this dimension falls short of expectation and most of the customers are on the above average side. Thus to improve customer satisfaction DBBL should improve its location facilities according to customer needs and wants. Most of the dissatisfaction came due to the inconveniency of the branches. 4.5.5 Complaint resolution and satisfaction The survey found that an important reason of dissatisfaction was dissatisfaction with the way a customer complaint had been handled. Only 38% respondents were satisfied with the outcome of a complaint they made. This lack of satisfaction influenced 62 % of those who had made
52

complaints to hold negative remarks about the overall satisfaction of the bank. The number and sort of complaints were not recorded. Clearly, DBBL needs to do better in this area.

4.6 : OVERALL EXPLANATION


From the above explanation, it is found that customers have given different opinion in respect of all the questions. And from their opinion I found that there are some lacking in the services done by the various part of standard bank as well as there are also some strengths in different sectors. I found that the overall performance of Customer care services are better than teller and PFC services. PFC services need better improvement as it is the most important in the branch service. Customers were quite satisfied about the speed of providing services, they were reliable on DBBL bank, they found the employees were well mannered etc. During the course of the undertaken study, several findings have been stumbled upon with which have been summarized and discussed below, Dutch Bangla Banks customer service was superior due largely to its strong brand image. The bank is constantly expanding and improving its performance.

Existing products come with new attractive features to their customers . The empirical evidence of the product suggests that it is performing quite well and contributes a good portion to the overall profitability of the bank. Although the current offering for the personal loan is a lucrative one, there is still scope for further improvement which would be beneficial for the bank as well as the customers. New products are improved gradually according to the needs of the customers.

Financial institutions have always played an imperative role in strengthening the economic infrastructure of the country. Banks such as the Dutch Bangla Bank has been at the forefront on this role. Although right now the products contribution in comparison to the other products is not that high, it can certainly be hoped that with proper modification and policy change, it will surely become a large profit earning sector for the bank. The different features of the product identify it

53

as a convenient way for the consumers to avail those products for a variety of purposes to assess the different aspects of the products applicant. The performance of the product also shows clear indication about the increasing trend of the products customer base. Day by day the numbers of products are increasing. Finally it can be argued that product development for consumers credit program of Dutch Bangla Bank has been operating more or less in the desired direction. However, we have identified some loopholes in the program which needs special attention. We hope that if the existing problems are addressed properly, the bank will be able to expand the program as per their target and it will continue to provide more revenues in maximizing the wealth of the bank in the years to come.

54

CHAPTER: 05 Conclusion & Recommendation

55

5.1: CONCLUSION
No financial system can operate if banks do not function according to commercial criteria. While supervisory and regulatory measures can help in this regard, on their own they will not be enough. They must be accompanied by a Government commitment, publicly announced and backed at the highest political level, that banks will be allowed to operate without any direct Government interference in their commercial decisions and that banking laws and financial discipline must be rigorously enforced without regard to persons. Implementation of reforms may involve pain and costs. But experience elsewhere in the world suggests that the longer the d elay, the greater the pain, sacrifice and costs. DBBL has started its banking activities much earlier comparing to the other banks and due to that it has gained a lot of banking experience which has been proved very worthy for them. But that is a part of their job because our countries economic condition is yet to progress a lot. Time to time they are offering different attractive packages of program like various loan packages for particular economic group as doctors loan, businessman loan, household loan etc. They also have adequate planning for compensation in various sectors like-they have a wide range of bonusbranch bonus, sales bonus as the percentage of individual performance, etc. They also have some special incentives for specified performance which is really encouraging for the employees. But at the same time they have some drawbacks like- they do focus mainly on financial incentives and benefits and not on non-financial ones. But it is not wise on their part. So they need to consider the non-financial incentives a little bit seriously for the customers as well as for the employees also. They also need to increase the range of attractive offers with the increasing business. Another thing is, according to my perception, they require a much prompt guideline to operate their activities. Also, according to my perception , with a bulk of qualified and experienced human resource, Dutch Bangla Bank can exploit any opportunity in the banking sector. To summarize the whole situation, I would like to say that, this organization is giving a wonderful service to the people in general and at the same time they are also trying to educate our people about the world class banking procedures which is, according to my concept, a very
56

worthy step and we should cooperate with them in this matter for our own benefit. The Dutch Bangla Bank Ltd to manage the overall banking activities program and they will definitely progress with the modernization of business environment

5.2: RECOMMENDATIONS
Although the Dutch Bangla Bank Ltd is performing very well in our country, but as per my observation and understanding, I think they need a little modification in their procedures to be the number one organization. Such as They need to maintain an upgraded guideline for the employees to avoid any kind of confusion. According to my observation, there is a lack of communication between the customers and the organization which they need to reduce for the betterment and they can easily do that by instructing the employees about how to communicate in a proper way. Although they are giving the world-class services and products, yet their charges are comparatively high than others and that is very much de-motivating for the customers. So they should consider this fact and can try to reduce it within their capacity. The interest rates for loans are also very high in DBBL .but to sale more, they should reduce this rate and thus they can make a higher profit. And in deposit sector, their interest rate is poor. Though they have many classified savings , they introduce customer only two, so they should enhance their savings facilities by introducing many other saving schemes, because customers really look for various savings programs. They should specify some basic training course in some specified sector to make clear understanding about each employees job and for promotion of employees. There is a need to establish specific increment category for each level. Special increment should be given to middle and junior level managers and executives also to increase their motivation level. While ranking job or evaluate them to specify the range of compensation, they should consider the employees overall performance, rather than his designation, to make a better understanding on the evaluation process.
57

There should be a scope for participate in decision making process of the organization within a fixed range because according to my understanding, it is one of the best way to encourage the employees to perform in a better way as they feel themselves as a permanent part or body of the organization.

They need to increase the range of non-financial incentives like-secretarial assistance for senior level officers, option for casual dress up for clerical level once in a week, etc. They can motivate their employees with some special incentives like-childrens education facility, loan facility, compensation for short time disability, company products at subsidized price, paternity leave, etc.
