1972 to commemorate the banks 25th Anniversary. HBL has the largest Corporate Banking portfolio in
the country with an active Investment Banking arm. It encompasses product offerings and services in
Retail Banking and, in recent years, Consumer Banking as well.
Satisfying customers are the only way to stay competitive in today's Market Place. The balancing act
between what customers want and what the HBL can provide must be optimized in order to maximize
HBLs long-term profits.

to small industries, traders and farmers. International operations were expanded to include the USA,
Singapore, Oman, Belgium, Seychelles and Maldives and the Netherlands etc.

1.2Origin Of Term BANK:


It has not so far been decided as to how the word Bank originated. Some authors says that
word is derived from the words Bancus or Banque which mean a bench. Other authors
disagree and they opinion that the word Bank is derived from the German word Back which
means joint stock fund. It is therefore, not possible to decide as to which of the opinion is
correct, for no record is available to ascertain the validity of any of the opinions.
"A financial institution, deals with money and credit. It accepts Deposits from individuals,
firms and companies at a lower rate of Interest and gives at higher rate of interest to those who
need them.

Chapter 2
Overview of Organization:

2.1History of HBL:
Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Pakistan's founding father, realized the importance of financial intermediation
while he was campaigning for the creation of a separate homeland for the Muslims of India. He
persuaded the Habib family to establish a commercial bank that could serve the Indian
Muslim community. His initiative resulted in the creation of Habib Bank in 1941, with HO
in Bombay (now Mumbai), and fixed capital of 25,000 rupees. The bank played an important role in
mobilizing funds from the Muslim community to finance the All-India Muslim League's campaign for
the establishment of Pakistan. Habib Bank also played an important role in channeling relief funds to
Muslims hurt in the communal riots and violence that preceded the departure of the British from India.
Habib Bank Limited was established in Bombay in 1941 by the sons of Habib Ismail. The bank had over
30 branches operating in India at the time of partition. Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah reposed
confidence in the bank by opening his personal account. On the creation of Pakistan in 1947, and
following the advice of the Quaid-e-Azam, Habib Family shifted all of its businesses including Habib
Bank to Pakistan. The bank played a vital role in meeting the financial and banking needs of Pakistan. It
continued to record tremendous growth and progress and emerged as the leading private-sector
commercial bank in Pakistan when it was taken over by the Government of Pakistan along with all other
Pakistani banks on January 1, 1974.
After the formation of Pakistan in 1947, Habib Bank moved its headquarters to Karachi. This gave
Karachi its first commercial bank of the newly formed Pakistan. The Habib family would own and
manage the bank until the Pakistan government nationalized it on 1 January 1974.

In the 1950s, the HBL started its international expansion. In 1951 it opened the first of what would
become three branches in Sri Lanka. The next year HBL established Habib Bank (Overseas). Then in
1956 HBL opened the first of five branches in Kenya.

1957 or 1958 HBL opened a branch in Aden.

1961 HBL opened the first of what would become 6 branches in the UK.

1964 HBL opened the first of 4 branches in Mauritius and a branch in Beirut.

1966 HBL opened the first of 8 branches in the UAE.

1969 HBL opened the first of 3 branches and an OBU in Bahrain. However, HBLs branch in
Aden was nationalized.

1971 HBL opened an OBU in Singapore and a branch in New York.

1972 HBL opened the first of 11 branches in Oman. HBL constructed Habib Bank Plaza in
Karachi to commemorate the banks 25th Anniversary.

1974 The government of Pakistan nationalized HBL and HBL merged with Habib Bank
(Overseas).

1975 HBL opened a branch in Belgium. HBL also merged with Standard Bank, a Pakistani
bank.

1976 HBL opened a branch in the Seychelles, the first of two branches in Bangladesh, and a
branch in the Maldives.

1979 HBL opened a branch in the Netherlands.

1980 HBL opened a branch in Paris and another in Hong Kong.

1981 HBL established Nigeria Habib Bank with 40% ownership. HBL also opened a
representative office in Teheran.

1982 HBL opened a branch in Khartoum.

1983 HBL opened branch in the Karachi EPZ and a branch in Istanbul.

1984 HBL established Habib American Bank in New York with a branch each
in Manhattan and Queens, and a US International Banking Facility. HBL also opened a branch
in California.

1987 HBL opened in Australia.

1991 The Habib Group established a separate private bank, the Bank AL Habib, after private
banking was re-established in Pakistan. HBL opened a branch in the Fiji Islands, and took over
the branches in Pakistan of failed bank, BCCI.

1992 In Nepal HBL acquired 20% of Himalayan Bank.

1995 HBL established a representative office in Cairo.

1990s HBL established Habib Finance (Australia), and Habib Finance International Limited,
Hong Kong.

On 13 June 2002, Pakistan's Privatization Commission announced that the Government of Pakistan
would grant the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development (AKFED), a subsidiary of the Aga Khan
Development Network, majority ownership of HBL against an AKFED's investment in the bank.
During 2002, HBL's UK operation came close to being shut down due to regulatory issues with the
Financial Services Authority. The issue was resolved by converting the operations to a subsidiary. Then
Habib Bank Limited and Allied Bank of Pakistan merged their operations (Habib contributed its 6
branches and Allied its 4), into a new bank, called Habib-Allied International Bank, in which Habib

Bank has a 90.5% shareholding, while Allied Bank has 9.5%. Simultaneously with the transfer of
business to the new bank, both Allied and Habib Bank closed down all independent operations in the
UK.
In 2003, HBL received permission to open a branch in Afghanistan.
On 29 December 2003, Government of Pakistan granted AKFED rights to 51% of the shareholding in
the bank against an investment of PKR 22.409 billion (USD 389 million). The next year, on 26
February, the government of Pakistan handed over management control of Habib Bank to AKFED. The
Board of Directors was reconstituted to have four AKFED nominees, including the Chairman and the
President/CEO and three Government of Pakistan nominees. The bank's owners now comprise the Aga
Khan Fund for Economic Development (51%), Government of Pakistan (42.5%), and the general public
(7.5%).
Habib Bank has long been scrutinized by intelligence officials monitoring terrorist money flows. On 18
July 2007, Mariane Pearl, the widow of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, filed a lawsuit against
Habib Bank Ltd over the 2002 abduction, torture and murder of her husband. The pending lawsuit
alleges the bank and its subsidiaries knowingly conducted financial transactions and provided account
services on behalf of Al Akhtar Trust, a Pakistani-based charity trust. Al Akhtar Trusts accounts have
been used to provide financial support to terrorists. However, HBL claims to have frozen Al Akhtar
Trusts accounts several years before Daniel Pearls abduction.
On 24 October 2007, Pearl's lawsuit against HBL was formally dropped. Lawyers for Mariane Pearl
noted that Habib Bank Limited and the other defendants in the case had not answered the lawsuit filed in
July (although Habib Bank Limited had denied ever supporting terrorism), but they otherwise did not
explain their reason for dropping the action.
The U.S. Federal Reserve Board and the New York State Banking Department criticized Habib Bank
Limited for failing to address deficiencies in its compliance with U.S. anti-money laundering laws. After
the U.S. Federal Reserve Board threatened formal charges, though none were filed, Habib Bank Limited
agreed to strengthen the bank's compliance. More specifically, the Fed ordered HBL to strengthen its
transaction monitoring systems and the filing of "suspicious activity reports" on transactions that do not
fit the routine business patterns of the bank's customer base.

2.2Nature of the organization:


2.2.1Accepting Deposits:

The primary function of HBL is to accept and receive surplus money from the people, which they
willingly deposit with the Bank. Like all other Banks, HBL also take incitation to attract as much
depositors as it can. They offer different deposit schemes to its customers, which includes the following
types. These schemes are as follows.

Current Deposits:
This type of account is often maintained by the business. Current deposits are those deposits on which
Bank offers no interest but it allows the account holders to withdraw their money at any time they want
without giving any prior notice to the community, which requires large sums of money very often for
their business transaction.

Profit and loss sharing account (Saving):


Saving deposits or PLS is those accounts on which Bank offers a lower rate of interest. After the Islamic
banking system in the country it has been given the name of PLS saving account. The Bank undertakes
to repay deposits on demand up to a certain amount.

Fixed deposits:
Fixed deposits are those which can be withdrawn only after the maturity period. In this type of deposits
the Bank allows high rates of interest depending on the time period of deposits. The shorter the period of
deposits, the less will be the interest and vice versa.

2.2.2Making Loans and advances:


The second most important function of HBL is to provide financing facility to its customers. These loans
and advances are usually made against document of title to goods, marketable securities, and personal
securities. HBL charges different interest rates on these loans and advances depending on the terms and
conditions settled with the customers. Following types of loans and advances are made available to the
customers.

Demand Finances:
Demand finances are those finances which are given to the borrowers for specified period and can be
called back without any prior notice. It is a single transaction finance. It can be long term, medium term

and short term. Mark up is also charge. Here the amount can be withdrawn once at the time of
disbursement.

Running Finance:
HBL provides these finances against the security of current assets like shares, bond, cash crops like
cotton and other cashable commodities. The borrowers account is opened with the Bank with the
amount of the total loan provided or allowed to the borrower. The borrower is allowed to withdraw any
amount from his account within the specified limit and interest is charged only on the amount actually
withdrawn.

Over Draft:
This type of facility is usually given to very loyal clients. This allows them to withdraw over and above
the amount held by them in their account, and interest is charged only on the amount, which is
withdrawn in excess of the amount actually held in their account.

Discounting bills of exchange:


Discounting bills of exchange can also be considered as a form of loan because it allows the holder to
get the bill encased before the maturity period. A bill of exchange is usually issued by the importer of
goods to the exporters, which allows them to be paid in their own currency after three months time. If
the exporter needs the money before the maturity of the bill of exchange, he can get his money from the
Bank by discounting the bill of exchange. The Bank utilizes their surplus funds by discounting the bills
of exchange at their market worth i.e. Bank pay to the holders of the bill on amount equal to their face
value after deducting interest at the current rate for the maturity period of the bill. Our stated objective
of being a premier emerging market bank.

Allied Bank of Pakistan Limited

Arif Habib Rupali Bank Limited

Askari Commercial Bank Limited

MCB Bank

United Bank Limited

2.10.2Foreign Banks in Pakistan:

Citibank NA

ABN AMRO Bank NV

HSBC

American Express Bank Limited

Emirates Bank

Doha Bank

Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi Limited

However Habib Bank feels that its major competitors are as follows:

United Bank Limited (UBL)

MCB Bank

Citibank

Askari Bank etc

As far as UBL is concerned, Habib Bank feels that it is a competitor because UBL itself is a sister HBL
of Habib Bank as the Abu Dhabi Group has stake in UBL and so there is always a comparison between
them.
Furthermore, Askari Bank is a competitor because of the fact that the product and services that it offers
is fairly similar to that of Habib Bank and its markup rates are similar as well. MCB, after being
privatized has also introduced a wide variety of services and with its large number of account holders, it
is also a big competitor.
Citibank is a foreign bank that has been established in Pakistan for a long period of time and has
introduced a number of first class services and as Habib Bank is also competing in the services industry,
it needs to benchmark its product and services to a bank with a stature to that of Citibank

2.11 STRUCTURE OF HBL:

At present the Bank operates through one central and 23 Regional Offices and 1500 branches inside and
112 branches in 25 different countries of the world in 5 different subcontinent.. The president and
Executives Committee look after the affairs of the Bank. Each Regional Head Quarter is headed by a
Chief Executive and assisted by General Manager Operations and General Manager Support Services.

department is for the security purpose, security in a sense that there should be no embezzlement of funds
or in money leaded to bank by any party or person. The efficiency of bank is also related to this
department the more efficient the bank is the stronger and busy is the cash department.
Cash department owes its important to the fact that it is a major point of contract between the bank and
the customer, the banks most valued relationships. This department is the showcase of the bank and

Chapter No.4
4.1. Introduction of Branch:
The branch where I complete my internship is Habib Bank Limited at Saadat Pur Branch. This
branch has not all the departments of HBL, some most important departments are maintaining
by this branch i.e. Account Department, Credited Department, Account opening Department,
Western union, foreign remittance, etc.
Branch Code Number

1173

Branch Telephone Number

0544751130

HBL Saadat Pur Branch 1173 has a tight competition among the different banks. Bank policy is
efficiently work done in order to satisfy the customer, providing better services to them as
compare to other banks and also to maintain the profits of the branch. This Branch of HBL does
not takes any type of risk.

Computer system:
The system has not totally shifted on computer. Manual procedure is still there hence computer
facility is not fully availed. There should be a system at each counter for quick processing.

Right person for right job:


During my internship I have observed the person who has came as customer Relationship
Officer was acting as Cashier. It should not be like this. The person should be posted according
to his qualification, profession skills and experience.

Customer problem:

People have to wait for en-cashing their cheques for about 10-20 minutes, which is not good for
the reputation of bank; the delay is due to manual work. Therefore I suggest that computers and
other electronic machines should be installed in bank so that time could be saved.

Deficiency in management:
I felt at some places the HBL Saadat Pur Branch need to have more employees, because a lot of
work is to be done by a single employee that will result in work overload and employee might
not perform his/her job with full devotion.

Physical Facilities:
Facilities like rooms are wider in size, there is no ventilation, furniture and separate room
facilities for officers are available in HBL Sadat Pur Branch (1173).

Performances:
Performances of the employees are checked on the basis of customer stratification and also in
terms of quality through number of accounts and budgets achieved by the employees.
