Executive Summary

Commercial banks lend money to different categories of borrowers for various purposes with a
view to generating revenue. Accordingly, while processing and appraising a loan proposal,
banks essentially analyze the information relating to borrowers, assess the purposes of
loan and determine the viability of the loan proposal. If the proposal is sound and safe for
lending, loan is sanctioned and disbursed. The report discusses about the management practices
of different credit facilities, approval process, monitoring and performances of the bank under

4.1 What is Credit?

The word credit comes from the Latin word “Credo” meaning “I believe”. It is a
lender’s trust in a people /firms or company’s ability or potential ability and intention
to repay. In other words, credit is the ability to command goods or services of another
in return for promise to pay such goods or services at some specified time in the future.
For a bank, it is the main source of profit and on the other hand, the wrong use of
credit would bring disaster not only for the bank but also for the economy a whole.
The objective of the credit management is to maximize the performing asset
and the minimization of the non-performing asset as well as ensuring the optimal point
of loan and advance and their efficient management. Credit management is a dynamic
field where a certain standard of long-range planning is needed to allocate the fund in
diverse field and to minimize the risk and maximize the return on the invested fund.

4.3 Types of Credit Offered by Janata Bank Limited

Cash Credit (Hypothecation)
The mortgage of movable property for securing loan is called hypothecation. Hypothecation
is a legal transaction whereby goods are made available to the lending banker as security for
a debt without transferring either the property in the goods or either possessing. The banker
has only equitable charge on stocks, which practically means nothing. Since the goods
always remain in the physical possession of the borrower, there is much risk to the bank. So,
it is granted to parties of undoubted means with highest integrity.
Interest rate is 13%

Cash Credit (Pledge)
Transfer of possession in the judicial sense of essential in the valid pledge. In case of
pledge, the bank acquire the possession of the goods or a right to hold goods until the
repayment for credit with a special right to sell after due notice to the borrower in the event
of non-repayment.
Interest rate is 13%.

4.4 Credit Management System

Getting Credit Information

Janata Bank collects credit information about the applicant to determine the credit
worthiness of the borrower. The bank collects the information about the borrower from

the following sources:

 Personal investigation.
 Confidential report from other bank Head Office/Branch/chamber of the commerce.
 CIB Report from Central Bank.

Information Collection

The loans and advances department gets a form filled by the party seeking a lot of
information. The information is listed below:

 Name and address of the borrower (present and permanent).

 Constitution or status of the business.
 Data of establishment and place of incorporation.
 Particulars of properties, partners and Directors.
 Background and business experience of the borrowers.
 Particulars of personal assets, name of subsidiaries, percentage of share holding and
nature of business.
 Details of liabilities in name of borrowers, in the name of any directors.
 Financial Statement of the last three years.
 Nature and details of business/products.
 Details of securities offered.
 Proposed debt equity ratio.
 Other relevant information.

Analyzing these Information

Janata Bank then starts examination whether the loan applied for, is complying with its
lending policy. If comply, then it examines the documents submitted and the credit
worthiness. Credit worthiness analysis, i.e. analysis financial conditions of the loan
applicant is very important. If loan amount is more than 50, 00,000, then bank goes for
Lending Risk Analysis (LRA) and Spreadsheet Analysis (SA) which are recently
introduced by Bangladesh Bank. According to Bangladesh Bank Rules, LRA and SA are

a must for the loan exceed of one crore. If these two analyses reflect favorable condition
and document submitted for the loan appeared to be satisfactory, then bank goes for
further action.

Lending Risk Analysis (LRA)

LRA is a very important and vital analysis for deciding whether the loan proposal is
potential or not. Many types of scientific, mathematical, statistical and managerial tools
and devices are required to perform this analysis. Janata Bank maintains a prescribed
format for Lending Risk Analysis, which includes a spreadsheet to analyze a lot of
things. It is not possible to discuss the entire LRA in this report.

Proposal Analysis

The Project Proposal is analyzed and decision about the project is taken. The loans and
advance department is responsible for the analysis. After preliminary appraisal of the
loan project the final approval is obtain from the manager. If the loan amount crosses a
certain amount (no found), managers send the loan project to the principal office for
final approval. The experts in principal office find out different projected ratios and
developed and understanding about the potentiality of the project. Bank evaluates a loan
proposal by considering, few predetermined variables. These are:

 Safety
 Liquidity
 Profitability
 Security
 Purpose of the loans
 Sources of repayment
 Diversification of risk etc.

The most important measure of appraising a loan proposal is safety of proposal. Safety
is measured by the security offered by the borrower and repaying capacity of the
borrower. The attitude of the borrower is also important consideration. Liquidity means
the inflow of cash into the project in course of its operation. The profit is the blood of
any commercial institution. Before approval of any loan project the bank authority has
to ensure that the proposed project will be profitable venture. Profitability is assessed

from the projected Profit and Loss Statement. The security is the only tangible asset
remains with the banker. Securing of collateral is the only weapon to recover the loan
amount. So bank has to see that the collateral is easy to sale and sufficient to recover the
loan amount. Bank can not sanction loan by only depending on collateral.

The sources of the payment of the project should be a feasible one. During sanctioning
any loan Bank has to be attentive about diversification of risk. All money must not be
disbursed amongst a small number of people. In addition any project must be established
for the national interest growth.

Collateral Evaluation

Janata Bank is very cautious about valuation of the collateral. The bank officials
simultaneously evaluate the collateral of the party offered by the private firm. The
valuation of the collateral increases the accuracy of its value estimated. Three types of
value of the collateral are assumed:

 Current market price

 Distressed price
 Price after five years

The legal officers of the bank check the document ascertain their impurity.

Final Decision about the Project

If the loan decision remains with the branch level, that branch sanctions the loan and if
the approving authority is Head Office then the decision comes to the branch by telex or

Proper Supervision of the Project

If such provision is kept in the sanction contracts, the Janata Bank officials go to the
project area to observe how the loan is utilized. If no such clause to supervise the loan is
added, even then the bank can see the performance of the project.

Documentation of the Loan

These are the most frequently used and common documents of above mentioned
charged and for other formalities for sanctioning the loan:

 Demand Promissory Note: Here the borrower promises to pay the loan as and when
demanded by the bank to repay the loan.
 Letter of Arrangement: Here the written amount of the loan sanctioned to the borrower
is specified.
 Letter of Continuity: It is used to take continuous facilities as providing continuous
 Letter of Hypothecation: It is the written document of the goods hypothecated thus to
put in case of need.
 Stock Report: This report is used for SOD and CC. In this report information about the
quality and quantity of goods hypothecated have furnished.
 Personal guarantee: It is the additional confirmation of the borrower to repay.
 Guarantee of the Directors of the company.
 Resolution of the board of directors: It is used to borrow the fund to execute
Documents and complete other documents.
 Letter of disclaimer: By this letter, the borrower withdraws his all claim on the
 Letter of Acceptance: Letter indicating the acceptance of the sanction proposal by the
 Letter of Pledge: It is the written document of the goods pledge thus the legality of
holding the goods.
 Letter of Disbursement: This is the document through which the payment of
loan indicates.
 Letter of partnership: In case of partnership firm, the partnership deeds are to be
 Letter of Installment: The amount of installment that is to be paid at certain intervals.
 Tax Paying Certificate.
 Any document if described, as essential in the sanctioned advice sanctioned by the
Head Office.

Creation of Charges for Securing Loan

For the safety of loan, Janata Bank requires security from the loaner so that it can
recover the loan by selling security if borrower fails to repay. Creation of a charge
means making it available as a cover for an advance. The method of charging should be
legal, perfect complete. Importance of charging securities is as:
 Protection of interest.
 Ensuring the recovery of the money lent.
 Provision against unexpected change.
 Commitment of the borrower.

4.5 Credit Risk Management System of JBL:

The Credit Risk Management Division is vital for the efficient functioning of JBL. It
critically scrutinizes the credit proposals from risk weighted point of view before
sanctioning approvals ensuring a high quality credit portfolio. The goal of credit risk
management is to maximize a bank's risk-adjusted rate of return by maintaining credit
risk exposure within acceptable parameters. Banks need to manage the credit risk
inherent in the entire portfolio as well as the risk in individual credits or transactions.
The credit management process of Janata Bank Ltd. covers the following tasks:
 Credit Processing/Appraisal
 Credit Approval/Sanction
 Credit Documentation
 Credit Administration

 Disbursement
 Monitoring and Control of Individual Credits
 Monitoring the Overall Credit Portfolio (stress testing)
 Credit Classification
 Disbursement of Loan
 Classified Loans
 Recovery of Loan

Credit Processing/Appraisal

Credit processing is the stage where all required information on credit is gathered and
applications are screened. Credit application forms should be sufficiently detailed to
permit gathering of all information needed for credit assessment at the outset. In this
connection, financial institutions should have a checklist to ensure that all required
information is, in fact, collected. Financial institutions should set out pre-qualification
screening criteria, which would act as a guide for their officers to determine the types of
credit that are acceptable. For instance, the criteria may include rejecting applications
from blacklisted customers. These criteria would help institutions avoid processing and
screening applications that would be later rejected. The next stage to credit screening is
credit appraisal where the financial institution assesses the customer’s ability to meet his
obligations. Institutions should establish well designed credit appraisal criteria to ensure
that facilities are granted only to creditworthy customers who can make repayments
from reasonably determinable sources of cash flow on a timely basis.
As a general rule, the appraisal criteria will focus on:

 amount and purpose of facilities and sources of repayment;

 integrity and reputation of the applicant as well as his legal capacity to

 assume the credit obligation;

 risk profile of the borrower and the sensitivity of the applicable industry

 sector to economic fluctuations;

 physical inspection of the borrower’s business premises as well as the

 facility that is the subject of the proposed financing;

 current and forecast operating environment of the borrower;
 management capacity of corporate customers

Credit Approval/Sanction

A financial institution must have in place written process and the approval authorities
of individuals or committees as well as the basis of those decisions. Approval
authorities should be sanctioned by the board of directors. Approval authorities will
cover new credit and changes in terms and conditions of previously approved
credits, particularly credit restructuring, all of which should be fully documented
and recorded. Prudent credit practice requires that persons empowered with approval
authority should not also have the customer relationship responsibility.

Depending on the size of the financial institution, it should develop a corps of credit risk
specialists who have high level expertise and experience and demonstrate judgment
in assessing, approving and managing credit risk. An accountability regime should be
established for the decision trail of decisions taken, with proper identification of
individuals/committees involveAll this must be properly documented.

Credit Documentation

Documentation is an essential part of the credit process and is required for each phase of
the credit cycle, including credit application, credit analysis, credit approval, credit
monitoring, and collateral valuation, and impairment recognition, foreclosure of
impaired loan and realization of security. The format of credit files must be
standardized and files neatly maintained with an appropriate system of cross-indexing to
facilitate review and follow up. The Bangladesh Bank will pay particular attention to
the quality of files and the systems in place for their maintenance. Documentation
establishes the relationship between the financial institution and the borrower and

forms the basis for any legal action in a court of law. Institutions must ensure that
contractual agreements with their borrowers are vetted by their legal advisers.

For security reasons, financial institutions should consider keeping only the copies of
critical documents (i.e., those of legal value, facility letters, and signed loan
agreements) in credit files while retaining the originals in more secure custody. Credit
files should also be stored in fire-proof cabinets and should not be removed from the
institution's premises.

Financial institutions should maintain a checklist that can show that all their policies and
procedures ranging from receiving the credit application to the disbursement of
funds have been complied with. The checklist should also include the identity of
individual(s) and/or committee(s) involved in the decision-making process.


Once the credit is approved, the customer should be advised of the terms and
conditions of the credit by wa5y of a letter of offer. The duplicate of this letter should be
duly signed and returned to the institution by the customer. The facility
disbursement process should start only upon receipt of this letter and should involve, inter
alia, the completion of formalities regarding documentation, the registration of
collateral, insurance cover in the institution’s favor and the vetting of documents by a
legal expert. Under no circumstances shall funds be released prior to compliance with
pre-disbursement conditions and approval by the relevant authorities in the financial

Monitoring and Control of Individual Credits

To safeguard financial institutions against potential losses, problem facilities need to be

identified early. A proper credit monitoring system will provide the basis for taking prompt
corrective actions when warning signs point to deterioration in the financial health of
the borrower. Examples of such warning signs include unauthorized drawings, arrears in
capital and interest and deterioration in the borrower’s operating environment. Financial
institutions must have a system in place to formally review the status of the credit
and the financial health of the borrower at least once a year. More frequent reviews
(e.g at least quarterly) should be carried out of large credits, problem credits or when
the operating environment of the customer is undergoing significant changes.

In broad terms, the monitoring activity of the institution will ensure that:

 funds advanced are used only for the purpose stated in the customer’s credit

 financial condition of a borrower is regularly tracked and management advised

in a timely fashion;

 collateral coverage is regularly assessed and related to the borrower’s financial


 The institution’s internal risk ratings reflect the current condition of the

Monitoring the Overall Credit Portfolio (stress testing)

An important element of sound credit risk management is analyzing what could

potentially go wrong with individual credits and the overall credit portfolio if
conditions/environment in which borrowers operate change significantly. The results of
this analysis should then be factored into the assessment of the adequacy of
provisioning and capital of the institution. Such stress analysis can reveal previously
undetected areas of potential credit risk exposure that could arise in times of crisis. Possible
scenarios that financial institutions should consider in carrying out stress testing

 Significant economic or industry sector downturns;

 Adverse market-risk events; and

 Unfavorable liquidity conditions.

Financial institutions should have industry profiles in respect of all industries where
they have significant exposures. Such profiles must be reviewed /updated every year. Each
stress test should be followed by a contingency plan as regards recommended
corrective actions. Senior management must regularly review the results of stress tests and
contingency plans. The results must serve as an important input into a review of credit risk
management framework and setting limits and provisioning levels

Credit Classification

It is required for the board of directors of a financial institution to “establish credit

risk management policy, and credit impairment recognition and measurement policy, the
associated internal controls, documentation processes and information systems;”Credit
classification process grades individual credits in terms of the expected degree of
recoverability. Financial institutions must have in place the processes and controls to
implement the board approved policies, which will, in turn, be in accord with the
proposed guideline. They should have appropriate criteria for credit provisioning and write
off. International Accounting Standard 39 requires that financial institutions shall, in

addition to individual credit provisioning, assess credit impairment and ensuing
provisioning on a credit portfolio basis. Financial institutions must, therefore, establish
appropriate systems and processes to identify credits with similar characteristics in order
to assess the degree of their recoverability on a portfolio basis.

Financial institutions should establish appropriate systems and controls to ensure that
collateral continues to be legally valid and enforceable and its net realizable value is properly
determined. This is particularly important for any delinquent credits, before netting off the
collateral’s value against the outstanding amount of the credit for determining
provision. As to any guarantees given in support of credits, financial institutions must
establish procedures for verifying periodically the net worth of the guarantor.

Classified Loans

Banks are financial service firm, producing and selling professional management of the
public’s funds as well as performing many other roles in the economy. But now-a-days
commercial banks are not performing their activities smoothly for a large burden of
default loan. Every year Janata Bank distributes thousand crore taka among individuals,
organizations etc. but a large sum of these distributed fund cannot be recovered in due
time. The Bank has to classify this loan.

 Signs for Classification: First and foremost requirement for any and all credit
managers is to identify a problem credit in its earlier stages by recognizing the
signs of deterioration. Such signs include but not limited to the following:
 Non-payment of interest or principal or both on due dates or past dues beyond a
reasonable period or recurring past dues.

 In case of Overdraft no movement in the account beyond a reasonable period.

 Deterioration in financial condition of the client, as gathered from client’s latest

financial statement.

 A shortfall in collateral coverage, particularly if the collateral was a key factor in the

 Death or withdraw of key-owners or management personnel.

 Company filing for bankruptcy or voluntary dissolution.

 Adverse market report about the company itself or its principal owners.

 Loan Classification Guidelines from Bangladesh Bank

Classification of overdue loans and advances opened a new era in the credit
management of commercial banks in Bangladesh. Before 1989 no specific guidelines were
followed by the commercial banks for this purpose. In 1989, Bangladesh Bank issued BCD
circular No.34/1989 stating specific rules and conditions of loan classification. After that

each schedule banks except BKB, RAKUB, and BSB would be responsible for its own loan
classification according to the guidelines are presented in the following table:
Loan Classification Systems:

Table – 7 Loan Classification Systems

*Source: BCD Circular no. 34/1989

According to this circular loans and advances were classified on a loan by loan basis rather
sample classification. This process was continued till 1994. Bangladesh Bank further
issued a circular in1995 (BCD circular#20/1994). The title of the circular was “Revised rules
of classification and provisioning of loans and advances,” which came into implementation
from January 1, 1995.

Recovery of Loan

The Recovery procedure of Janata Bank is the ultimate combination of time, effort of money.
It follows several procedural steps to recover the lending amount, which is joint effort
of Bank, society and legal institutions. There are several programs taken by the bank to
recover the disbursed loans. They are discussed hereafter.

 Programs for Loan Recovery

When Janata Bank sanctions loans and advances to its customers, they clearly state
the repayment pattern in the loan agreement. But some credit holders do not pay their credit
in due period. The nationalized and private sector commercial banks have to face this
sort of problems. This situation is especially severe in Janata Bank. To overcome the
problem of overdue loan, the bank needs to take some particular loan recovery
programs. They are:

 Establishing credit supervision and monitoring cell in the bank

 Re-structuring the loan sanctioning and distributing policy of the bank

 Sanctioning loans and advances against sufficient securities as best as possible

 Giving more powers to the branch manager in credit management decision

 making process

 Offering a package of incentives to the sound borrowers

 Giving more emphasis on short term loans and advances

 Imposing restrictions on loans and advances for sick industries

 Taking legal actions quickly against unsound borrowers as best as possible

 within the period specified by the law of limitations.

Steps for Loan Recovery Against Defaulters

The following steps are taken by Janata Bank Ltd against the defaulters for recovery of loan:
Reminding the party to repay the loan after validity dates: First of all, the Credit
Administration division reminds the borrower about the remaining days to repay the loan
mentioning the validity dates from time to time.
i. Send final notice: If the borrower fails to repay the loan within the sanctioned period for
repayment then he or she is given an additional period for the repayment of the loan
attaching a final notice for the repayment as well.
ii. Send legal notice: When the borrower fails to repay the loan even after the
additional period and the final notice, the credit administration of JBL sends a legal notice to
the borrower mentioning that if he or she is not capable to repay the loan within a specific
time then the bank will file a suit in the court against him or her.
iii. Eventually sue a case against the party: Finally, the bank, not getting any
repayment from the borrower, suits a case against the defaulter according to the
respective law. Then the decision of the court will be final for the recovery process and both
the party and bank will have to abide by the law.

These are the general procedures for recovery of loan followed by Janata Bank Ltd.

4.7 Credit Evaluation Principles

Some principles or standards of lending are maintained in approving loans in order to keep
credit risk to a minimum level as well as for successful banking business. The main
principles of lending are given below:

Liquidity means the availability of bank funds on short notice. The liquidity of an advance
means it repayment on demand on due date or after a short notice. Therefore, the banks
must have to maintain sufficient liquidity to repay its depositors and trade off between the
liquidity and profitability is must.

Safety means the assurance of repayment of distributed loans. Bank is in business to make
money but safety should never be sacrificed for profitability, To ensure the safety of loan.
The borrower should be chosen carefully. He should be a person of good character &
capacity as well as bank must have to maintain eligible number of security from borrower.

Banking is a business aiming at earning a good profit. The difference between the interest
received on advances and the interest paid on deposit constitutes a major portion of the
bank income, Besides, foreign exchange business is also highly remunerative. The bank
will not enter into a transaction unless a fair return from it is assured.

Banks sanction loans for productive purpose. No advances will be made by bank for
unproductive purposes though the borrower june be free from all risks.
The security offered for an advance is an insurance to fall bank upon in cases of need.
Security serves as a safety value for an unexpected emergency. Since risk factors are
involved, security coverage has to be taken before a lending.
National interest:
Banking industry has significant role to play in the economic development of a country.
The bank would lend if the purpose of the advances can contribute more to the overall
economic development of the country.

4.8 Problems in Loan Recovery

There are a lot of reasons for which the loan recovery of the bank is very defective.
In most cases, problems june be raised from sanctioning procedures of loan,
investigation of the project, and investigation of the loans etc. that is, the problem
in loan recovery proves the outcomes of the default process in loan
disbursement. The main reasons of poor loan recovery are categorized in four
broad types as follow:

 Problems created by government

The following problems are arisen by the government:

External pressure: Janata Bank Ltd. has also faced many problems in the loan recovery
process as a part of continuous pressure from various interested groups.

Loan to government organization: Janata Bank Ltd. is bound to sanction loan to

government organization, though these are losing concern. For this reason, banks faced
problems in loan recovery.

Legal problems: Existing rules and regulations are insufficient to cover the legal aspects of
loan recovery. As a result, defaulters can get release easily from all charges against them.

 Problems created by the bank:

The following problems are created by the banks:

Lack of analysis of business risk: Before lending, Janata Bank Ltd. does not
properly analyze the business risk of the borrowers and the bank cannot forecast
whether the business will succeed or fail. If it fails to run well, the loan becomes classified.

Lack of proper valuation of security or mortgage property: In most cases, bank fails to
determine the value of security against the loan. As a result, if the loan becomes classified,
the bank cannot recover its loan through the sale of mortgage.

 Other general causes of poor loan recovery:

Apart from the specific reasons creating problems to recoup loan, there
exists some other general causes which have a great impact on creating the
problems which are faced by the Janata Bank Ltd. under study in the loan
recovery process. These are:

 Lack evaluation of technical and economic feasibility of the program.

 Credit is not allowed to actual entrepreneurs.

 Lack of proper supervision.

 Illiteracy of borrowers.

 Deterioration of the value system of the borrowers.

All of these reasons discussed above are general reasons for problems loan
recovery of Janata Bank Ltd. Besides these, there are some specific reasons
for loan recovery problems faced.

continuously by Janata Bank Ltd. They are as:

 Loans are given under fictitious names and enterprise

 Loans are given without sufficient securities

 Approval of the loans in excess of the branch manager’s power

 Improper monitoring and supervision of credit

 Political misuse if loan programs operated by the public sector banks

Problems in loan recovery are the outcome of the default on loans

disbursements in the earlier period.


5.1 Findings of the report

Every bank has its own credit procedure. Bank under study possesses a
standard credit procedure. As the objective of my study is to make a comment
on the credit management of Janata Bank Ltd, I try my best to collect data for
the study and find out the reality. Based on the data generated during my study
period I will sum up my findings here and I think this will help me to achieve
my objectives.
Janata Bank Ltd. has a significant role in long term project financing in both agriculture and
industrial sectors. Again JBL has a deep concern for rural farmers.
 Janata Bank Ltd. house building loan interest rate is high
 Private sector usually concentrates in the urban areas where as public sector i.e. JBL
spread their banking network all over the world.
 According to the standard and bank’s credit procedure, credit operation is started from
the customer application to the branch for the loan. But in most cases, many customers go
directly to the directors of the bank and directors send them to the branch offices
 Bangladesh Bank monitors all the policies of all the private and nationalized banks of
the country. According to the Bangladesh Bank’s strategy, all banks must possess
the standard policies which are designed by the central bank. Janata Bank Ltd. Also
possesses a standard credit proposal form. In that form all necessary information are
required to fill up. But in practice credit officers do not fill up the proposal form
properly. Most of the cases, they use assumption rather than exact figure. This practice
might end up with bad or classified one.
 JBL distribute loans without sufficient security in some cases. This is violation of the
Bangladesh bank order.
 JBL does not keep enough provisions against classified loans and advances.
 The credit management of JBL are not fully conformity with the guidelines
prescribed in the bank companies Act 1991 and International Accounting Standerd-

5.2 Recommendations
To improve the risk management culture further, Janata Bank Limited should adopt some
of the industy’s best practices that are not practiced currently. These are:
 Continuous monitoring of the customer should be conducted so that loan cannot be
 The bank should emphasis more on loan diversification like loans on different promising
sectors and newly invented thrust sectors in the economy.
 Political intervention should be avoided while approving and sanctioning loan.
 Every day the business environment is changing and so the risk. So the bank should be
developed as a dynamic organization to adapt with the changing circumstances.
 All the loan documentations have to done honestly. The bank should concentrate more
on proper documentation of all types of loans to make the department trustworthy &
 The documents supporting the security against the loan have to be verifiedproperly by
the bank before sanctioning the loan.
 An Early Alert Account system should be introduced to have adequate monitoring,
supervision or close attention by management
 There should be a Recovery Unit to manage directly the accounts with sustained
deterioration. To encourage Recovery Unit, incentive program may also be introduced.
