Focusing the light and considering the every pros and cons on available statistical data it has been apparently accepted that IFIC Bank Ltd. has continued to register its steady progress in the field of deposits, advances & foreign exchange business. In view of the sluggish nature of the economic activities over the years the deposit performance of IFIC Bank Ltd is more or less satisfactory. The low rate of economic growth, high rate of unemployment, illiteracy, growth rate of population, low rate of credit recovery etc. are the impediment factor of economic development of a country. Despite of this obstructed IFIC Bank Ltd. has shown a mediocre performance.
