explained below:

Page 3 of 34
i. Time Inadequacy
Internship is only limited to two months period. Due to time inadequacy only
limited information could be achieved.
ii. Limited activities
Only limited activities are assigned while doing intern. The internship is
basically focused to deal with customers only.
iii. Limited information
Due to the busy schedule of other staff, only the information from junior
assistant is accessible which was very limited.
iv. Access to software
As the overall financial transactions are performed through banking software
with unique security code, interns were not allowed to operate them. Interns
are only permission to do manual work.
v. Corporate Policy
Corporate policy is very important in an organization. KBL being a reputed
commercial bank was not ready to leak important information even to the
interns for any kind of publication. Thus, corporate policy was one of the
limitation resources.

1.5 Introduction of Bank

Bank is a financial institution that deals with financial transactions. It is the financial
service institutions which receive deposits from savers and lends to those who are in need
of money. In other words it collects money from surplus units as a form of deposits by
providing certain percent interest and finances it to the deficit units for those who are
intending to use it in productive purpose by charging interest. Besides this, a bank
provides a range of agency services like remitting and collecting cash on behalf of its
clients, opening bank drafts and letter of credit facilities, underwriting shares of newly
established companies etc.

Banking institution plays an important role in flourishing an economy in the country. It


would be quite impossible for the industrialists and entrepreneurs for making investment
in huge sectors without bank. Thus it is important for every sector of an economy i.e.

Page 4 of 34
trade, industry, commerce, agriculture etc. and can be taken as a powerful tool in
exchanging the growth of an economy.

Therefore, bank is a financial institution intermediary especially concentrating on credit,


savings and payment services and performing a widest range of financial functions than
any other business firm in an economy. Its major function is to formulate capital by
collecting from small diversified savings scattered all over the nation.

According to Kent, “A bank is an organization whose principal operations are concerned


with the accumulation of the temporarily idle money of the general public for the purpose
of advancing to other for expenditure.”

1.6 Evolution of Bank Worldwide

The term ‘bank’ is derived from the Latin word ‘bancus’, Italian word ‘banca’ French
word ‘banque’ which means ‘a bench’ and German word ‘bank’ which means joint stock
company. The evolution of banking sectors had started a long time back, during ancient
times. The early bankers, the Jews in Lombardy, transacted third business at benches in
the market place. When they are unable to meet their liabilities, the depositors used to
break their benches and the term bankrupted was derived. Bank provides the public with
checkable deposits, such as demand deposits as well as time deposits and uses their
depositor’s fund mainly to make loans and buy securities. Bank operates as financial
intermediaries standing between the ultimate lenders and the ultimate borrowers.

The bank of Venice, established in 1157 A.D. is supposed to be the ancient bank.
Originally, it wasn’t a bank in real sense being simply an office for the transfer of the
public debt. Subsequently, bank of Barcelona (1401) and Bank of Geneva (1407) were
established. The ‘bank of England’ was in 1694 A.D. In England, banking and its origin
can be started with goldsmith who adept the valuable thing of the public for the safe
keeping at certain commission and to be returned to those, the depositor wished.
According to Crowther, modern Banking has three ancestors-The Merchant, The
Goldsmith and The Money Lender. The modern banking system is leading the world

Page 5 of 34
countries in the 19th century. However the modern banking started agreed the introduction
of banking act 1883 A.D. at United States of America. Therefore, this trend of banking
slowly began to increase and spread initially all over the world.

1.7 History of Bank in Nepal

In Nepal, the banking industries came into existence since eighteenth century. According
to Nepalese History-“Gunakama Dev, the king of Kathmandu had burrowed money to
rebuild and rule Kathmandu in 1723 B.S.”

The establishment of ‘KausiToshaKhana’ during the regime of Great Prithivi Narayan


Shah and ‘TejnathAdda’ during the Prime Ministership of Rannodip Shah around 1877-
1933 B.S .were the banking agencies of those time. These agencies lead the initial step
toward the origin and the establishment of banking in Nepal.

Later ‘tejnath’ was replaced by the first commercial bank, Nepal Bank Limited during the
time of Juddha Shumsher in 1937 A.D. The need to regulate financial and monetary
system increased immensely resulting in the establishment of central bank. Nepal bank

Page 6 of 34
was established in 1956 A.D. In order to cater the demand of banking system, Rastriya
Banijya Bank was establishment in 1966 A.D under 100% government ownership.

With the establishment of Nepal Bank limited in 1994 B.S. the banking system came into
practice in Nepal. After the establishment of Nepal Bank Limited, Nepal Rastra Bank
came into existence in 2013 B.S. which is considered as the Central Bank of Nepal. It is
the bank of all banks which formulate the laws and policies for other banks in order to
make the banking system more systematic and organized.

In order to provide service to the agriculture sector, Agriculture Development Bank was
established in 1968.Two commercial banks i.e. Nepal Bank Limited and Rastriya Banijya
Bank both are owned by the government and two development banks in the form of
agriculture corporation were serving industrial and agriculture sector under the separate
acts of these institutions.

It was only in 1984 A.D. that Nepal Arab Bank, the first joint venture bank in private
sector, was established. It is the pioneer of joint venture banks in Nepal. Thus, there have
been tremendous changes in the history of banking industry in Nepal.

1.8 Commercial Bank

Commercial Bank is the eldest financial institutions in the history of banking.


Commercial Bank are one of the major financial intermediaries whose primary function
is transfer of monetary resources from saver to borrowers. Commercial bank is so named
because they specialize in loan to commercial and industrial business. They are owned by
private investors, called stockholders or by companies called bank holding companies.

The major objectives of commercial bank are to earn profit. Though the commercial
banks were established with the concept of supplying short time credit and working
capital needs of industries, they started to provide medium and long term loans for up to
10 years by the provision made in Commercial Bank Act 1974.Modern commercial banks
collects deposits in current, saving and fixed accounts from general public as well as

Page 7 of 34
from the institutions. It then distributes these collected deposits in the form of loans to
agriculture, industry, and service sectors as well as to individuals. Nepal Bank Limited is
the first commercial bank of Nepal established in 1994 A.D.

Commercial bank can play a vital role in giving a direction to economy’s development
over time by financing the requirement of trade and industry in the country. They draw
the community saving into organized sector that can allocated among the different
economy activities according to priorities laid down by the planning authorities in the
country.

The commercial banks are those banks that pull together the saving of community and
arrange for their productive use. They activate the ideal money to the different productive
area. They supply the financial need of modern business by various means.

According to the American institute of banking defines “Commercial bank is one which
accepts demand deposit to check and makes short term loan to business enterprise
regarding of the scope of its other services”.

According to Nepal commercial bank act, 2031 B.S define “Commercial bank is one
which exchanges money and deposit money, accepts deposit, grants loan and performs
commercial banking function”.

In this way, various writers on banking have defined the bank in different ways since a
modern bank performs number of functions. So, it has become difficult to give a precious
definition of bank.

The lists of commercial banks are shown in the appendix 1.

1.9 Functions of commercial Bank

and to people. Banks act as an intermediary between the surplus party and deficit party.

ANALYSIS OF ACTIVITES DONE AND PROBLEM
SOLVED

2.1 Activities Performed in Customer Service Department

CSD is the very first place where the customer first gets the service. In today’s
competitive business environment, customers should be treated with the upmost respect
and dedication. The image and reputation of the bank depends upon effective functioning
of this department. It is important to know that a highly satisfied customer stays longer,
buys more as the organization introduces new product, pay less attention to competing
brands and even do word-of-mouth advertising. Hence, through the effective functioning
of CSD only such satisfied customers are possible in large extent.

2.1.1 Responsibility Given and Activities Carried Out by Internee

Most of the time of internship was spent on CSD. The various activities performed while
working in CSD under the supervision of department head are given below:

i. Receiving the Visitors:

One of the most important functions of the CSD is to receive the visitors. The staff at the
reception should be very polite and helpful. The visitors are there for various purposes
such as meeting a particular person, to open a new account, close an existing account,
inquiring related to ATM card, loans, services provided by the bank, ABBS system and
many more. For that particular purpose the intern helped the visitors by providing the
prompt and relevant services.

ii. Filling and Documentation

Page 24 of 34
Filling and documentation are very important task that the CSD staffs do. The entire
paper work has to be done simultaneously to the computer work. There are different files
for filling different documents. The account holders’ form, their signature cards, and their
request slip all are filed in separate files. Hence the intern has to know the process of
filling the document as per their nature and their use.

iii. Receiving the Telephone Calls:

Another important function of the CSD is to receive calls. All calls are important. The
caller must not be made to wait for too long to get answered. In CSD, the intern learnt to
respond to the every calls receive politely and courteously.

It is the job of the staff working in CSD to instruct anyone who may have problems in
filling the forms. For that particular purpose, intern helped the customers by filling up the
form, verifying it whether the forms are filled up properly or not and check whether the
required documents are attached or not. The documents to be submitted while opening
accounts are different according to customer they may be Individual customer, Sole
proprietorship firms, Partnership Firms and Limited Company.

The customer need to fill up their concerned account form and deposit the minimum
balance as per the requirement of the account type they have chosen like savings account,
call account, current account and so on.

customer can closed their bank account and terminate all transactions with the bank. For
that particular purpose, intern informed them to return all cards and cheques taken from

Page 27 of 34
bank. These cards and cheques should be attached with the form filled and submitted to
the CSD head, Operational in-charge and Branch Manager.

Requirement for Closing Individuals’ Account

The account holder must be present to close the accounts along with the cheque book and
ATM card issued by the bank. Name, account number, and the reason for closing the
existing account should be mentioned in the account closing form.

Procedure of Closing Individuals’ Account

After the account closing request is received from customer, this form is taken by CSD
for the ‘no objection’ in all departments (credit and operation). If the account is of large
deposit or transaction it is taken to the manager for the approval. If customer closes
account after three months of account opened date, Rs 300 is deducted from customer’s
account as closing charge. If customer closes before three months, Rs.500 is charged.

vi. Issuing Cheque Books:

The cheque books are issued immediately to the customers after opening an account. The
cheque book of ten leaves is only given to new customers. Old customers can request for
the cheque book with maximum fifty leaves by filling the cheque request slip. Account
holders can also send others in their behalf for receiving the cheque book with request
slip including verified sign. For this, intern made cheque book from printed cheque slips
along with recording the details manually The A/C holder’s name, A/C number, cheque
number; date etc should be recorded in the register book as well.

2.2 Felt/ Observed Gap

Theories are developed from the testing phenomenon several times. This phenomenon
consists of fact and truths that have been collected from the universe. It is quite obvious
that the facts are not understood in the same way as they were learnt. The intern also

Page 30 of 34
faced this complexity while trying to implement the theoretical knowledge into practice.
Following were the discrepancies or mismatch between theory and practiced as
experienced:

 Customers were not treated as gods as we normally talk about their importance in
business.
 The etiquettes of good governance and corporate culture were observed in a
different fashion from those read in the text books of management.
 Most of the banking functions were not understood without the help of some trainings;
only theoretical knowledge was not sufficient.
 The intern was only allowed to perform the clerical task despite the fact that BBA
aims to develop mid level managerial abilities.

CHAPTER III

CONCLUSION AND LESSON LEARNT

3.1 Conclusion

Due to the growing number of commercial banks and other financial institutions throat-
cut competition among these institutions are also increasing. To remove the unhealthy
competition among these institutions NRB has been introducing new phase of banking
policy and regulation time to time.

During whole period of internship and the preparation of this report the intern learnt a lot
about the banking sector and banking operation. The internship has been fruitful to me in
many ways. This internship program provides me the opportunity to understand the
practical aspects of running the organization and dealing with the forthcoming challenge,
weakness and threats. This programmed has helped me to learn about the KBL and its
operation more significantly.KBL is one of the growing commercial bank in Nepal due to
it efficient staffs as well as well trained and professional management team. The bank has
focused in improvements of the information technology, venturing into new area of
banking activities and has laid greater stress in improving the quality of manpower.

KIST bank visions is to be the leading bank by providing excellent service and increasing
the significant number of satisfied customers. It worships the customer as god and
believes that customer is always right It always put the needs of customer first than
others. . KIST is committed to meet the financial needs of the customers and exceed their
expectations through innovative solutions. It promises to deliver customer centered
products and services with the customer care and full satisfaction.

Hence, being an intern at KIST bank has fostered the degree of passion, punctuality and
taught to work in actual organization setting as its part. This will definitely help the intern
in future where s/he works in any financial institutions. Similarly, dealing with numerous
customers with varied expectations, handling their complaints at the spur of moment
without losing temper etc will undoubtedly help the intern in the long run of their
professional career. Besides this, the intern concluded the following things:

 Kist is excellent in term of their services despite with some pros and cons.

professional management teams.
