All praise to Allah, the most merciful, kind and beneficent, and the source of all knowledge, wisdom within and beyond my comprehension. He is the only God, who can help us in every field of life. All respect and possible tributes goes to my Holy Prophet Mohammad (SAW), who is forever guidance and knowledge for all human beings on this earth. I am proud to say that I am very grateful to my family whose kind prayers and cooperation helped me at every step of my work. Special thanks go to my parents for their cooperation for the sake of my knowledge. I am greatly indebted to my learned teachers, Sir.Kumail Abbas Rizvi, Sir. Yasin, Miss. Shamaila, Miss Hafza, Sir. Zafar who have great influence on me during my formative years. This report reflects the knowledge which I have gained from my valuable teachers. I acknowledge with deep gratitude the invaluable help extended to me by Mr. Rana Ahsaan-ul-Haq, one of the officer of the National Bank of Pakistan, without his co-operation it was not possible for me to complete my Internship Report. He guided and helped me and specially the sympathetic attitude, which always inspired me for hard work. I am really very thankful to Muhammad Rafi Operational Manager of National Bank Samanabad Branch, Lahore and all the bank staff for their cooperative attitude during my internship. In the end thanks are due to one of my friend Miss. Sana Khalid for her cooperative attitude during the completion of my project work. She helped and supported me during gathering and analyzing information.



To interpret my skills and educational knowledge of Finance I done my internship in National Bank of Pakistan Samanabad Branch, Lahore and to know how I will work in financial institutions and among various types of people have different attitude. The objective of this Internship was to explore the issues relating to Finance and to find out problems regarding the theoretical concepts with practical experience working in an organization during the internship and study the system of National Bank of Pakistan. There are many possible improvements, which we can make positive changes in the system. The report is based on my two months internship program in National Bank of Pakistan. The methodology reported for collection of data is primary as well as secondary data. The biggest source of information is my personal observation while working with staff and having discussion with them. The report summarizes the National bank of Pakistan with its working divided into three parts first part deals with the description of the NBP the second part covers the theory and practices adopted by NBP and third part discuss the financial position of NBP, its analysis and at the end concluding remarks and suggestions are given for improvements. It was too much difficult for me to describe the functioning of such a vast organization within the limits. In spite of this I tried my best to describe. Finally, for any all too fallible errors, omissions and shortcomings in the writing of the report only I am responsible for which I hope that all concerning regards of this report will forgive us.



During this eight weeks long practical glimpse the theories and ideas which we received from the books have been women in the texture of our actual life. No doubt, it has helped us in cultivating the qualities of courage, hope, initiatives and capacity to turn our knowledge to practical purpose. Banking sector owes a pivotal importance in the economy of any country through its vibrant functions. This is the deep seated motivator that geared up me to join any bank for internship. National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) was established in 1949 under the National Bank of Pakistan Ordinance 1949 and was 100% government owned. NBP acted as an agent of the Central Bank wherever the State Bank did not have its own Branch. It also undertook Government Treasury operations. Inside the bank, in branch banking it has Clearing and Collection Department, Government Receipts Processing Department, Account Opening Department, Remittance Department, Customer Services Department Cash Department, Deposit Department, Advances and Credit Department. These are the most common departments exist in almost each branch. It is offering different deposit choices, advances, credits and securities etc for its customers through its corporate branches. Yet there are many possible improvements, which we can be made and that can bring positive changes in the system. There is shortage of employees in the organization. With development of online banking system the load of work can be decreased. All the staffs do not know about computer. There is almost one or two employees are trained to operate the system in every branch. Especially, the cash department is not familiar with computer and information system. It is not easy for it to implement a new system immediately it takes a lot of time to replace systems. Once implemented its testing takes more time. So it is important for the Bank to develop a research department for redesigning the operations of the Bank

At the time of partition the total number of Commercial Banks in Pakistan was 38 .Out of these Pakistan had 2 banks, India had 29 and there were 7 exchange banks. Before the partition of Sub Continent the entire banking business was almost controlled and managed by non-Muslims. The Muslims were deliberately kept cut of banking profession by the wealthy Hindu community. When Hindu capitalists became sure of the division of Sub Continent, they secretly began transferring their funds and the other valuables at an accelerated pace to India and there was a mass scale migration of non Muslims from West Pakistan to India which also caused the drain on the bank deposits. The Hindus closed down most of the head offices and the branches of scheduled and non-scheduled banks in Pakistan. The number of scheduled bank’s branches was reduced from 619 to 213 in both the wings of the country after independence. The non-scheduled banks also suffered a severe jolt and their number was reduced from 411 to 106 over the same period. West Pakistan from where there was greater exodus of nonMuslims to India suffered a great deal, as a number of branches fell down (from 487 to 69). The mass scale closure of branches and withdrawal of the deposits caused a dead lock in the banking business in Pakistan. The government of Pakistan was quite aware of the serious banking situation caused by the withdrawal of deposits and wholesale migration of banking staffs to India. It took up the challenge and started reorganizing the crippled banking immediately after partition. In 1949 September U.K. devalued its currency, India followed the suit but we did not. India said we had contravened the agreement. On October 3, 1949 the two central banks have to announce the new par value of both currencies but India denied the day earlier. India also froze our trade balance surplus that is still an unsettled dispute. India also draws the Marwari merchants who were employed annually for movement of jute crop by financing it. There being no jute industry, prices fell sharply, and an agrarian unrest was threatening. Two Ordinances were therefore issued. 1 2 Jute board Ordinance & NBP ordinance dated 08.11.1949

In order to regulate both of the banking on sound footings, the following measures were taken to develop the banking system in Pakistan. • • The State Bank of Pakistan, which is the central bank of the country, was established in July 1948. The National Bank of Pakistan was established on 1949,to serve as an agent to the SBP.

The Industrial Development Bank of Pakistan was set up on August 1, 1961 with a Paid up Capital of Rs; five crore. The Agricultural Development Bank of Pakistan (ADBP) was set up in 1961. it provides short , medium and long term loans to the farmers. In Jan, 1974 the entire commercial banks were Nationalized. The weaker commercial banks were merged with the stronger once and in all Five major banking companies were formed. MCB and ABL have again been privatized.

The normal procedure of establishing a banking company under the Companies Law was set aside and the Bank was established through the promulgation of an Ordinance due to the crisis situation that had developed with regard to financing of jute Trade. The Bank commenced its operations from November 20, 1949 at six important jute centers in the then East Pakistan and directed its resources in financing of jute crop. The Bank’s Karachi and Lahore offices were subsequently opened in December 1949. State bank of Pakistan after its formation demanded from the Indian Reserve Bank the assets against the Indian currency retired from Pakistan territory. Government of India refused to hand over the assets worth about five hundred million rupees. The dispute is still unsettled and these assets are still not delivered to Pakistan. Until June 1950, the Bank was engaged exclusively on jute operation. Thereafter, it was felt that it could expand its business to include other commodities as well. Bank took a big stride in 1952, when it replaced the Imperial Bank of India, as an agent of State Bank of Pakistan. There were 14 Pakistani scheduled commercial banks operating in the country on December 1973, the name of these were: 1. National Bank of Pakistan 2. Habib Bank Limited 3. Habib Bank (Overseas) Limited 4. United Bank Limited 5. Muslim Commercial Bank Limited 6. Commerce Bank Limited 7. Australia Bank Limited 8. Standard Bank Limited 9. Bank of Bahawalpur Limited 10.

Deposits are the lifeblood of commercial banks. The main function of a commercial bank is to mobilize deposits of money from the savers and lend into for most profitable purposes. The process of collection deposits is Deposits Mobilization. Commercial banks donor receive these deposits for safe keeping purpose only .but they accept deposits as debts. When a bank receives a deposit from a customer becomes a creditor and the bank a debtor. When the bank receives the amount of deposits as a debtor, it becomes the owner of it but there is an implicit agreement that the amount owned would be paid back by the bank to depositor on demand or often at specified time. The classification is based on duration and purpose for which the deposits are to be kept at the bank before the depositor can withdraw them. Deposits can be divided into two categories.

In Hailey College of Commerce, Quaid-e-Azam Campus, the students are required to undergo for four weeks of internship to complete the (Hons.) degree. For this reason, I carried out my internship in National Bank of Pakistan, Samanabad Branch, Lahore and tried to prepare my report.

This branch was founded in July 1962. From last many years this branch is not only achieving its targets of deposits and advances rather it remains above the targets. According to the financial record of last year this branch was earning more than 20% of total profit of the region.

Every year the targets of this branch are increasing by 20 to 25 percent but still there is a potential in the market to meet these additional targets. This branch is performing its functions in traditional style and most of the work is done manually but in spite of all challenges and lack of resources the branch is now trying to make most of its activities computerized.

During the session of four weeks I work in different departments on weekly basis. The employees of the bank help me and provide me all required information. I studied major functions, objectives and future planning. I worked in different departments during working as an internee which proves to me very beneficial and me able to get basic concepts of banking operations. 105

The most obligatory thing for payment of pension is to check pension slip in form of cash payment P.P.O.No., name of the pensioner, signature, and payment period.

Use of Information Technology in Decision making
Today banking is becoming more and more complex with the introduction of new products, services and enhancing regulatory compliance requirements. It is the use of information technology that can improve the customer’s services and reduce the cost at the same time. NBP adopted “IBM Software” for service providing motives, the “IBM Software” categories into two sections. • • BBO (Bank Branch Office) EBS (Electronic Banking System)

Electronic Banking System EBS is used for any kind of transaction within the bank .i.e. Receipts and payments, Bills Collection, Tax receipts, etc. Bank Branch Office BBO is use for remittances. The use of IBM Software is one of the main purposes of collection electronic data for the bank that further helpful in future in decision making. Now a day, the bank plans for transformation of the entire I.T. architecture by implementing a core Banking Solutions. The bank prepares financial statements, agricultural reports, customer’s management, risk management and other reports for decision-making purposes. The I.T. system of the bank not only increases distribution capabilities but also simplify internal procedures thereby reducing the cost and lead-time for services. Now the Samanabad Branch of NBP is trying to computerized its all of activities for this purpose various aspects of extension and development have been taking into consideration.


Internship Report

National Bank of Pakistan

During the internship I got practical experience that does not meet the theoretical concepts in Program. I present here some critical analysis:

i. ii. iii. iv.

Training: NBP has no great facility for their employees for training of new technologies. This situation creates difficulty for handling new challenge. Departmentalization: An employee deals various nature of work. Staff Attitude: Due to heavy load of work staff attitude does not ideal for an organization where public dealing is at large scale. Work Environment: Work environment was not ideal due to heavy customers visit in a single day. Furniture, light and sitting arrangement was not good for customers and bank employees. Professional Approach: Work specialization and job specification are found very low in bank’s employees. Business administration qualities and education is at low side. Shortage of Staff: There is shortage of staff in the Bank. Number of customer per employee is very high. Cash department is suffering very badly and facing great deal of over workload. Less use of Technologies: Staff hesitate to use new technologies especially the cash department. Even old employees are not able to operate PCs. Communication Gap: I feel that there is communication gap between top management and workers. They have fewer chances to communicate effectively. Unjustified Appraisal Criteria: No justified appraisal criteria are implemented for annual increase in salary and promotion of staff. It creates un-satisfaction among the employees of the Bank. Undemocratic Decision Making: I observed that some times employees are not involved in decision-making process. Manager himself takes decision and orders to make changes. Pensioner's sitting Arrangement: Bank should take step for the sitting arrangement of the old age employees and pensioners for. Also management should purchase more furniture and arrange them in such a way which provides maximum 114

space and convenient specially in deposit department and there should also be convenient sitting place for customers.


Need of Telephone Operator: Branch has the problem of telephone operator which can save the time of not only manager but other staff as well. On the other hand bank’s communication system was not doing well. Therefore as an internee I felt that there should be a telephone operator who can easily handle this situation.



In this section topics are: • Dilemmas Faced by Organization • Problems at branch • Functional Problems • Administrative Problems • Personal Management Problems • Recommendations for improvement • Conclusion

Internship Report

National Bank of Pakistan

Rather NBP is a nation's bank but like any other organization NBP also is not free from problems and crisis. In SWOT analysis I have already discussed the major internal weeknesses and flaws of the system. In this topic the most important problems are included which are widely present at the branch level. For this purpose the topic is divided into the four parts which are as under. • •
• •

Problems at the branch. Functional Problems
Administrative Problems. Personal management’s Problems


Customer Satisfaction In NBP customer dealing is will, but during rush hour the customer has to wait for a long time for their turn. It’s quite hard for a new customer or potential customer to get the required information.

Poor record management and filing system During my internship I observed that filing system of branch is not good. When certain record is needed the staff has to struggle to find it out and a lot of time is wasted.

Unequal distribution of work Work is not equally distributed. On one hand some employee have to work all day without relaxing while some others have nothing to do at all. This not only creates confusion among employees but also hurting and disturbing for overall setup of the bank. And above all it results in dissatisfaction among customers as well. Marketing visits A useful mode of contact is through personal marketing visits. Such visits are important in informing and perusing the existing and potential customers about the products and creating a sense of belongingness with them.


Formal Organization Formal organization includes the activities of two or more person, which are cautiously determined groups and coordinated towards a given objective. It provides base when people are able to communicate with other, when they have common purpose and they are willing to work. In NBP, we find a formal organization. In this formal organization of NBP the activities are carried out in a more formal way. In theoretical terms it provides basis for communication with one another but in practice it is not exercised because an employee at high level cannot get straight away

to manager or SVP and ask him about of his problem faced by him, because first he has to talk to his immediate superior and follow a proper channel of communication.

Excessive paper work It is notified that due to the lengthy procedure of paper work the bank employee are over burdened. They are unable to give proper attention to the clients and face difficulties in getting their job done. One reason for lengthy procedure and excessive paper work in the bank is the lack of computerized technology. More accounts fewer deposits. Efficient banking is one which does not emphasize on number of accounts but on greater amount of deposits. NBP is more interested in increasing its number of account irrespective to its deposit.


Job analysis is not effective Only on the basis of job analysis it can be decided how a right person can be hired, trained, compensated or promoted. It is very important for an organization that nature of the job is described and job specifications are mentioned. Most of the employees are simple graduate and do not have proper background about their job. This creates problems both for organization and for the employees. Lack of specialized training NBP does not provide adequate facility of specialized training to their staff. Training is generalized rather than specialized. As the worker finishes his training, he is inducted into a specific field without having great deal of knowledge about the field. Poor job rotation. There is absence of job rotation in NBP Samanabad branch. A person placed in one department remains their forever. It reduces career opportunities as well boredom and in the end results in career plaguing. The newly recruit should be rated in all department of the banking in order to get familiar with working of different departments so that when they get a responsible position they have know how of the whole system. Lack of appreciation Another very important thing which is ignored in the bank is appreciation if the employee on their good performance. If hard work and performance of employees is not recognized and appreciated they become dishearten which results in decline in performance.


Need for better training program Need of training is greatly emphasized all around the world. Training of the personnel is part of human resource management. It has been noticed that the training program of NBP is not adequate.


Internship Report

National Bank of Pakistan

Once the candidate is selected and placed on the respective job. It becomes essential to train him adequately for the task. They should learn new methods for motivating customers. The training programmed of the bank should include scientific techniques to improve the decision making and interpersonal as will individual needs of the employee both specialized to fresh as well as on job.

Developing Managerial Leadership Leadership is a practical term of visible, clear on objective and communicating better control on financial and administrative matters. Manager is not only responsible for their own units in business, but also in people terms i.e. training, recruiting, grievance handling and taking immediate initiative in crisis situation to take major decision affection the future of the bank and banking community. Recruitment policy Human resources are the lifeblood of the organization. If the personnel are recruited carefully they can become asset to the organization in the case of carelessness a liability on the organization. Bank is not following its recruitment policy properly due to favoritism, nepotism and political pressure. Promotions Promotion in NBP is purely on the basis of seniority, so the new young person having high qualification remains behind for quite a lot of time. Top management and staff union put pressure for the promotion of their favorites. Transfer Transfer means when a person is shifted from one place to another place. It is done either that person is needed more on the other branch or for improving his skill variety. It is the policy of the Bank to transfer each employee 3 to 4 years. Marketing at desk Bank employee come in daily contact with many people who happen to deal with the casual remittance, travelers cheques, safe custody, pensioners, depositing license fee and variety of other functions and variety of other people with whom the Bank has no account or regular business relationship. The Bank employees are doing very little on their own to explore the possibilities of selling banking services to them as a marketing contributor. The market opportunities are hidden in every dealing a banker handles; the question is that if he has the art and urge to seize such opportunities.

Lack of business communication
There is no proper way to give information to their customer. To avoid this minor dissatisfaction and tension in the mind of customer, and deficiency of the service, it is recommended that the bank should provide brochures etc containing information in details. Some general information should be placed in information notice board on the entrance where customer can see it easily or it should be self-attractive.

As analysis shows that NBP is a most growing organization with highest return on capital, The bank has been able to strategically manage and build on its competitive advantage, by knowing customer’s requirements, understanding employee’s need, modern technology, to making social responsibility and looking towards stakeholder’s values. But there is further need for improvement. To overcome weaknesses and to maintain its position as an “Asian Tiger” in banking field, following recommendations are made:

∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗ ∗

Staff strength should be enhanced and professional qualified persons should be recruited. It is recommended that proper training be provided to the staff members that will ultimately increase the performance of Bank over all. It is suggested that promotion be given to the staff in due time and on the basis of performance to provide job satisfaction. The bank should spend more on renovation of the branches to improve environment and atmosphere to attract the customers. There should be a proper desk for customer’s information in every branch. Sitting arrangement, air conditioning and new furniture should be facilitated The Bank should introduce the computers software to cope the heavy load of work and better control. Extra counters should be established in order to facilitate during the rush days the difficulties faced by the bank staff as well as the customers. All Branches of the Bank must be online. All the departments should be established separately in every branch. The Bank should locate new market for its operational activities in the country as well as abroad. The Bank should increase profit rate on deposits and saving schemes especially for pensioners and old age citizens. For improvement of internal control and system the compliance wing and surprise inspection system should work more effectively. The bank should use broad casting media for promotion of its products and services and to further expand its area through more aggressive marketing. Customer services must be better to improve the efficiency of branch, which results in quality work and causes the customer attraction that will create lucraturable activities.

These and many other that can make a good set of recommendations, which have to be made possible to escape from the threats and weaknesses and the risks in environment that surrounds the Bank. The management do considers the policy matter that is not helping the 119

Bank, but are still in practice due the absence of prudentially regulated system to protect them and the Bank. Efforts have been made with serious concern to give NBP a status that it has to maintain by having practices of:

∗ ∗ ∗ ∗

Right sizing of the employees. By closing unprofitable branches. By introducing a merit based selection criteria. Promotions made conditional with qualifications.

1949. The primary objective of NBP was to purchase jute from the growers in the former East Pakistan and also to perform the commercial banking functions in the country. It is a part of State Bank of Pakistan and it is its major strength. It is providing different facilities to its customers. Inside the bank, in branch banking it has Clearing and Collection Department, Government Receipts Processing Department, Account Opening Department, Remittance Department, Customer Services Department Cash Department, Deposit Department, Advances and Credit Department. These are the most common departments exist in almost each branch. It is offering different deposit choices, advances, credits and securities etc for its customers. Its Human Resource is its major strength that is leading this bank in this way but there is much gap to cover yet. The other strengths this bank has are that it is acting as Agent of State Bank of Pakistan, providing Agency Arrangements for different government organizations include WAPDA and PIA, Profitability and a vide coverage throughout Pakistan through its Corporate Branches. And also it has comprehensive range of products it is offering in market. The challenge it is facing are currently the lack of implementation of rules and regulations that may lead to weak organizational culture, old organizational culture, no regular promotions practices and not much use of IT technology in bank as other are using. There are many workers and employees’ unions exist in National Bank of Pakistan that use to play organizational politics instead of doing productive work that leads to wastage of time. As analysis shows that NBP is a most growing organization with highest return on capital, largest market share amongst all Pakistani banks and cost to income ratio is the highest in banking sector. But there is further need for improvement to overcome weaknesses and to maintain its position as an “Asian Tiger” in banking field.
