The banking council of Pakistan was responsible for the recruitment, selection and allocation of human resources. After the dissolution of the Pakistan Banking Council, the Banking & Financial Services Commission of Pakistan is responsible for these activities.
Staff requirements are met according to the changing needs of macro environment scenario and particularly the arising needs of the bank itself. A need analysis is conducted. After assessing the human resources requirements and screening of the applications, most probably, the suspects are invited for a written test. Short listed candidates are called for an interview for personality and social appraisal. Interviews are a mix of direct and indirect interviewing techniques and information required. The selected candidates are sent for training of six months training from MDI’s. The training is through the lectures regarding banking procedural guidelines and other behavioral aspects. After the completion of training employees are allocated to different offices.

Work done by me in HBL
ACCONTS OPENING DEPARTMENT:
In this account department I gain the particle knowledge about opening. This department deals with opening account and saving account for its customer and all matters
regarding there off. The customer opening account/saving accounts can be categorized as following: 1) individual 2) firm 3) company 4) trust 5) staff 6) others
OPENING AN ACOOUNT:
In order to open an account first of all the customer has to fill a form prescribed by the bank. The person is required to bring some reference or introduction for opening the account. Introducer may be a person who has an account with HBL. Some important information regarding introducer e.g. the name and account number of the introducer is written on the space provided on the specimen signature cards. Then in order to find out whether he is a true introducer or not a letter is sent to him thanking him for this introduction, so that any thing wrong may come into notice. There are different requirement for different types of accounts and account holders. An important thing is that the customer should have a corporate customer. The corporate customer limit is 40 million and this branch always deals the corporate customer. General rules for opening an account: One person can open only one account in the same branch with the same category. In the event of death of an account holder the credit balance will be transfer to the heirs of the diseased individual account.
Services charges will be deducted periodically as prescribed from time to time on the accounts that are under the limit of specific account. Services charges are not applicable on that accounts that are prescribed as exempted. A distinctive number will be allotted to the each account. The bank can close those accounts that are under the minimum limit of the bank. Any sum to be deposited in the account should be accompanied by paying in slip showing the party account number and the name. Account holder can only withdraw the sum of money by his own account by cheque. Cheque should be signed by the account holder by the specimen given by the bank. Post dated and defective cheque is not accepted. If statement of account spoiled a new will be issued on cost. Any change in the address should immediately communicate to the bank. The account holder wishing to close the account must surrender the cheque book. Account may be transfer from one branch to another same branch without any charges etc.
“Deposit are the blood of a Bank” I worked in this deptt for one week and learned that the acceptance of deposit is the real source of income of a bank. Deposit Department is the backbone of commercial banking.
Deposit is often used to describe the money which customers of all kinds leave with the bank. Deposit account can be defined as an account, which is opened to earn interest. The term deposit is highly misleading. It is not something deposited for safe deposit box. Bank deposit is not like that; when one brings currency to the bank for deposit the bank does not put the currency in the vault. It may put small fraction of the currency in the vault as Reserve but it will lend most of deposits to someone else. The entire banking system is based upon borrowing. Like all banks, deposit department has acknowledged its worth as the most important. Almost all the operations generated from the deposit department and with due course of time reflect back to the deposit department. In order to attract funds bank has introduced various types of deposit schemes that may suit the need and tastes of a large number of depositors.
TYPES OF DEPOSIT FACILITY:
Deposits are broadly classified into the following three categories: i) ii) iii) Demand deposits Saving deposits Time deposits
The procedure undertaken upon receiving deposits from the customer is as follows: 1) Examining the deposit slip to ensure that the name and the account numbers are clearly indicated. 2) Counting the cash/cheque and agree the total with the amount on the deposit slip. 3) After that the pay-in-slip is validated for cash transaction/ transfer/ clearing transfer as appropriate before the counterfoil a handed over the customer. 4) Cheque assigned by the director, partners, employees of a company, drawn in favor of themselves and credited in their account in the bank are to be scrutinized
An amount can be withdrawn by the cheque. The withdrawals can be made only at branch where the account is maintained. All cash withdrawals will be made under account holder’s full signature. One or two bank officers have to verify the signature. In current account the bank does not offer any interest. We can deposit and withdraw any amount during the banking hours.
ISSUANCE OF CHEQUE BOOK:
The account holder requests for a new cheque book by presenting the requisition slip along with the authority letter to the concerned officer. His signature was verified before giving him the new cheque book. One or two bank officers have to verify the signature
I work in this department for one week; this department deals in transfer of money from one place to another or country by: 1) Demand draft 2) Mail transfer 3) Telegraphic transfer In this department internees are advised to observe the working of transfer of money from one place to another place or country by the above mode of transferring money. During my stay in this department I observed that how demands draft be issued.
The procedure is as follows: First a bank receives a request from the customer to issue a bank draft. The written request is either in a banks standard from or separate paper signed by the applicant with cash or cheque covering the amount of the draft and other charges of the bank. While issuing a bank draft it is necessary that they should be free from alternations. All the details must be written clearly in ink. After issuing a demand draft it is handed over to the applicant and it advice containing the particulars of the draft is sent to drawer branch with it is necessary information and payment of the draft is made on its presentation or according to the terms and condition of the mode of transfer.

In addition to this the amount of cash also includes PKR 74M lying in escrow account of Bank Alfalah as sponsor’s equity because the company is under process of expansion for which they have also gone for consortium finance from BAL & ABL.

The current liabilities increased from 244.565M in 04 to 342..120M in 05, this increase is mainly due to increase in short term debt (Exposure of Working capital lines from banks) and this factor is very much obvious due to increase in company’s operations.

same has been invested in inventory which increased by PKR 100m fully complying the matching principle requirement.
