1.1. Background of the Study
Now we are living in the age of competition at anything in any places. From that tendency
recently Education is also in the age of competition. So the procedures and standards of
teaching are upgraded by different universities and institution in our country. In respect to
that, internship is mandatory for our BBA program offered by Jagannath University. This
program is a partial fulfillment of our BBA curriculum. To do so I decided to complete my
internship in Janata Bank Limited. In connecting, HRD of JB sent me to the Laxmibazar
Branch and assigned to prepare this report. Internship program is the practical aspect of our
theoretical learning. It makes a bridge between the gap of classroom learning and practical
learning. In this view, Internship plays a pivotal role for each professional degree like BBA.
The study will help formulate suitable policies taking into consideration different ideas,
suggestions and feelings of the customers and bankers. Furthermore, it may note that Janata
Bank executives who are really executing the policies undertaken by the top management
will have a chance to communicate their interaction and provide necessary feedback.

1.2 Objectives of the study

There are some purposes of preparing the report which helps me to fulfill my thirsty. These
are given:
 To know about Branch level General Banking Activities.
 To gain practical knowledge in banking.
 To recommend ways and means to solve problems regarding Banking.

1.3 Methodology of the study

The information which is represented in the report is collected internally and externally.
Internal section can be the combination of primary data and external represents secondary
data. Within 45 days a lots of events have been occurred from where it helps to prepare the
report. Sometime orally I have collected information which is not available. And these can be
gathered only personal experience.

Chapter: Three
General Banking Activities

3.1 General Banking
General banking is all about the combination of different departments and the activities
performing in banking operation. Basically it shows how department helps to collect money
from the one client and lend to the other client and to do so it has distinctive goal as well as
objective. Always they try to fulfill their target what actually given by top management to
accomplish touch overall goal of the bank through their branches. Each and every section of
the branch is interrelated with other one not having to be any wrong. So it’s not headache
only that section which has something wrong, it has to be carried every section. As well, all
sections are ready to help each other to perform their activities. The department tries to
create interest in customers’ mind through why they would come in the bank and what would
be the advantage behind this. People are getting interested to deposits in the bank to match
time value of the money and have security as well as withdraw their money based on
demands and needs by paying cheque. To be principal instruments interest security and
different services play as vital role to attract the customers. In fact, there is no relation
between banker and customers except transaction related activities. And that’s why banker
always tries to provide best and unique opportunity to the customer through superior services
rather to other banks to hold them. Therefore different activities like cheque, pay order issue,
local, foreign remittance, funds, account opening etc. are carry out by the departments.

3.2 Customer Services

In the branch different sections are ready to give the services which are the ultimate solution
of the customers. Any information, if customer wants to know, he or she can get it either
phone or coming in the bank. But by phone all information is not provided due to maintain
security. Normally what amount of money in their (customer) account, to open an account
what should be followed, when can be taken cheque book and deposit book, what the
condition of interest rate, how money can be transferred to other bank etc. This type of
services bank provided to the customer. People always want to get the customer service as
early as possible. JBL wants as fast as possible they will offer the services to the customer
rather than other banks holding own position and go forward more by superior services
through smiling face as well as well behaving what they need. Sometime which facilities
(products) have been come in new way for the customers and helpful are informed. To

develop customer service more, sometimes they are asked what their expectation to the bank
about it is. If it is possible manager tries to add with customer service Therefore info provider
has to be always spirited and active to provide just in time. These services and account
opening to provide executive officer basically is active in the REB Branch.

balance becomes lower than the minimum balance, banker has the right to close an A/C.
By customer: If the customer wants to close his A/C, he writes an application to the manager
urging him to close his A/C.
But in practice, normally the customers don’t close A/C willingly. At times, customers don’t
maintain any transaction for long time. Is this situation at first, the A/C becomes dormant and
ultimately it is closed by the bank.

3.4 Departments
3.4.1 Remittance

Remittance of funds is a very crucial service of JBL. It aids to remit fund from one place to
another place on behalf of its customers as well as non- customers of bank. JBL has its
branches in the major cities of the country and therefore, it serves as one of the best mediums
for remittance of funds from one place to another.

Payment Order Issue/Collection

The pay order is an instrument issued by bank, instructing itself a certain amount of money
mentioned in the instrument taking amount of money and commission when it is presented in

bank. Only the branch of the bank that has issued it will make the payment of pay order.
The procedures for issuing a Pay Order are as follows:

 Deposit money by the customer along with application form.

 Give necessary entry in the bills payable (Pay Order) register where payee’s name,
date, PO no, etc. is mentioned.
 Prepared the instrument.
 After scrutinizing and approval of the instrument by the authority, it is delivered to

Demand Draft (DD) Issue

The person intending to remit the money through a Demand Draft (DD) has to deposit the
money to be remitted with the commission which the banker charges for its services. The
amount of commission depends on the amount to be remitted. On issue of the DD, the
remitter does not remain a party to the instrument: i) Drawer branch ii) Drawee branch iii)
Payee. This is treated as the current liability of the bank as the banker on the presentation of
the instrument should pay the money. DD will be paid only by the drawing branch or paying
branch. The banker event on receiving instructions from the remitter cannot stop the payment
of the instrument. Stop payment can be done in the following cases:

Loss of draft before endorsement: In this case, “Draft reported to be lost, payee’s
endorsement requires verification” is marked. Loss of draft after endorsement: In this case,
the branch first satisfies itself about the claimant and the endorsement in his favor.


A commission of 0.10% is taken on the draft value & 15% vat on DD commission & Tk.25/=
is taken as postal charge.

Though TT stands for Telex Transfer it is used as Telephonic Transfer since Telex has
eliminated. Telephonic transfer (TT) is another widely used mode for remittances of funds. In
case of telephone transfer the message for transfer of funds is communicated through tested

telephonic message. JBL generally recovers from the telephone charges in addition to the

3.4.2 Accounts

Account Department plays most vital role in Banking. Accounts Department is a department
with which each and every department is related. It records the profit & loss A/C and
statement of assets and liabilities by applying of book-keeping. The functions of it are
theoretical & computerized based. JBL REB Branch records its accounts daily, weekly, and
monthly every record.

Basically Accounts Department is not alone. Accounts department is a mix of as follows:

 Cash
 Transfer
 Clearing

This section of any branch plays very significant role in Accounts Department. Because, it
deals with most liquid assets of the JBL. This section receives cash from depositors and pay
cash against cheque, draft, PO, and pay in slip over the counter. Every bank must have a cash
counter where customer withdrawn and deposit their money. When the valued client’s
deposit their money at the cash counter they must have to full fill the deposit slip his/her own,
then they sing as the depositor option’s then they deposit their money through cash officer at
the cash counter. There are several types of deposit slip as follows:

 Current Deposit A/C Slip,

 Saving’s Deposit A/C Slip
 Pay order Slip
 Demand Draft Slip
 T.T. Slip.
 Online Deposit Slip

After paying these kinds of slip, the valued client waits for the deposit slip book outside of
the cash counter. The Deposit officer the money in their account through computer software,
while the depositors account credited, then he puts a seal in the deposit slip.


Basically transfer is a type of register maintaining matter. In this register officer write down
every day transactions in Debit and Credit side then the officer calculate both the side of the
register if both side shown same amount, it means that the total day’s transaction is
completely okay. Transfer is not a critical sector in banking but it is very important. Transfers
play a vital role in banking sector.


Clearing is one of the crucial parts of banking. Different cheque of banks come from different
clients to pass through clearing. In this case this cheque are sent to the head branch to get
advice whether it will be passed or not and for that it takes minimum one day to credit his or
her account.

3.5 Definition of Cheque

Cheque is an important negotiable instrument which can be transferred by mere hand

delivery. Cheque is used to make safe and convenient payment. It is less risky and the danger
of loss is minimized.
Cheque is an instrument in writing containing an unconditional order, addressed to a banker,
sign by the person who has deposited money with the banker, requiring him to pay on
demand a certain sum of money only to or to the order of certain person or to the bearer of

3.5.1 Types of Cheque

1. Bearer Cheque
When the words "or bearer" appearing on the face of the cheque are not cancelled, the cheque
is called a bearer cheque. The bearer cheque is payable to the person specified therein or to
any other else who presents it to the bank for payment. However, such cheques are risky; this
is because if such cheques are lost, the finder of the cheque can collect payment from the
bank. A bearer cheque can be transferred by mere delivery and requires no endorsement.

2. Order Cheque
When the word "bearer" appearing on the face of a cheque is cancelled and when in its place
the word "or order" is written on the face of the cheque, the cheque is called an order cheque.
Such a cheque is payable to the person specified therein as the payee, or to any one else to
whom it is endorsed (transferred).The payee can transfer an order cheque to someone else by
signing his or her name on the back of it.

3. Crossed cheque
Crossed cheque is done by drawing two parallel lines across top left corner of the cheque,
with or without writing ‘Account payee’ in the space between the lines. Thus, crossing is
necessary in order to have safety. When a cheque is crossed, the holder cannot encash it at the
counter of the bank. The payment of such cheque is only credited to the bank account of the

There are mainly two types of Crossing Cheque:

General Crossing

Generally, cheques are crossed when

 There are two transverse parallel lines, marked across its face or
 The cheque bears an abbreviation "& Co. "between the two parallel lines or
 The cheque bears the words "Not Negotiable" between the two parallel lines or
 The cheque bears the words "A/c. Payee" between the two parallel lines.

Special or Restrictive Crossing

When a particular bank's name is written in between the two parallel lines the cheque is said
to be specially crossed. The effect of special crossing is that the bank makes payment only to
the banker whose name is written in the crossing. Specially crossed cheques are safer than
generally crossed cheques.

3.5.2 Approving and Cancellation of Cheque

At the time of posting of cheques, the cheque is examined carefully. Attention on the
following more aspects is given:
 Checking the amount of the cheque (written & figure)
 Place of the cheque
 Date of the cheque
 Signature of the cheque
 Prefectures of serial number of the cheques
After careful examination, the drawing amount of cheque was entered in the ledger

For cancellation of cheques, Janata Bank, Laxmibazar Branch is followed the bellowed
 The cancellation officer shall keep the specimen signature card under his personal
 All specimen signature cards will be kept in serial order;
 In case of difference of signature, cheques shall not be passed;

 This Internship is developed my skills in the application of theory to practical work
situations, to cope with new environment, and understand interpersonal relationship.

4.2 Limitations and Challenges

Since the report is concerned with the Activities of General Banking of Janata Bank Limited.
A lot of information could not obtain because the bank were not interested to disclose their
information, policy, and data to maintain their secrecy. I had to depend on the websites of the
respective bank for much information.
There are certain limitations regarding the studies that are summarized below:
 Theoretically there are so many factors to be observed before analyzing such type of
study. Those kinds of information are very confidential and it is absurd for me to
check all these information within only 45 days.
 Branch was going through renovation process, which was hampering the working
 Officers are busy with their respective works. Many of them have truly failed to
manage time to have a talk with me about his work in the desk.
 One of the major limitations is the time constraints.

Discussion & Findings

5.1 Findings& Discussion

JBL is one of the potential banks in the banking sector. The Laxmibazar branch of JBL is the
South zone of Dhaka Division. It was a wonderful experience working at Janata Bank
Limited. The employees of the bank were very helpful and nice to me. In spite it was not an
easy job to find so many things during the very short period of practical orientation program.
Now, I would like to present my observations and give, my opinion to improve the banking
service and make their customer more satisfied.

1. Lack of dynamic and prompt customer service

Since a number of new banks are coming to existence with their extended customer
service pattern in a completely competitive manner. Customer services must be made
dynamic and prompt. Now a day, people have very little time to waste but want
fastest and unique services in short time. Moreover they seek the bank which will
provide more facilities and attractive offer compare to other bank. Therefore
southeast bank should think sincerely about the renovation of their customer service
and facilities which will be more attractive and innovative rather than traditional one.

2. Lack of Proper Division of Labor and man power

There is lack of division of labor in the branch. Therefore everybody has to handle
every type of banking services. Moreover if one personnel is absence in a department
then extra burden will fall to another. This decreases the level of performance of the
personnel, though it reduces monotonousness. But lack of division of labor hampers
the discipline of working environment. So customers have to wait for some time for
the desired service, which is contrary to the Premium Banking objective.

3. Lack of Proper compilations &Maintenance of Files

Janata Bank Ltd, Laxmibaza Branch gives personalized services. All the officers
have to give concentration to the customers, while doing this they cannot properly
completed and maintain the customer files. In many cases, most of the files and
papers are kept here and there by the officers during the busy hour.

4. Shortage of availability of Machineries

Laxmibazar Branch is supposed to be very well equipped by advance and available
machineries. But there are shortages of photocopy and printing machine therefore
most of the time employees activities are hampered for maintaining serial as well as
it create gathering on their short space. This loses its glamour. Moreover as because
of lacking of maintenance and over used when one machine of any department stops
working then the load shift to another department badly.

5. Employee Dissatisfaction

Because of late promotion and longer probationary period there is dissatisfaction

among the employees. More over some sort of internal politics also another reason
behind proper recognition and promotion of employees. In addition most of the time
over duties and huge working pressure makes their life monotonous and hamper their
family life.

6. Lack of effective advertising and promotion

Advertising and promotion is one of the weak points of Janata Bank Limited. Janata
Bank Limited does not have any effective promotional activities through
advertisement, but other banks have better promotional strategy.

7. Lack of Computer Knowledge

All the organizations including banks are now mostly depends on computer but
employees do not have much knowledge on computer.

8. No desk and specific task for internee

Janata bank doesn’t arrange any desk and fixed any task for their internee. Therefore
they don’t get any chance to learn banking activities by doing practical task. It is not
possible for any fresh graduate to learn banking activities by getting few lecture from
specific personnel rather if they involve them to some specific activities it would be
easy for them to learn more and fell confident to perform any activities properly.

Chapter: Six
Recommendation and Conclusion

6.1 Recommendation

1. Renovation of customer service

Janata bank should make its service prompt so that people need not give more time in the
banking activities and fell easy to perform all respective activities. Moreover they have to
come up with new facilities and offer which will attract more client and help to ensure
their premium as well as loyal customer forever. Therefore they have to ensure-

 The working process faster with better computers and operating systems.
 Trained, experienced, smart, knowledgeable as well as intellectual personnel to
provide fastest and the best services.
 Individual attention can be given to customers in order to better understand the
customer’s needs and better satisfy them (Cheques, deposit slips are not written
properly by the customers so the employees have to do that).
 More ATM booth in merchant location.
 More Gifts, Discounts as well as differentiated interest rates on several loan and
deposit schemes for the Premium Customers.
 Car parking facility.
2. Ensure Proper Division of Labor and man power

The human resource departments of Janata bank have to ensure proper division of labor in
desk for handling the rash of customer in an efficient way. Therefore based on importance
and work load they have to ensure proper division of labor. Moreover by increasing the
numbers of personnel try to maintain the premium banking objective. Mainly the number
of human resources is needed in Front Desk and in clearing section which really
insufficient for giving services to huge number of customers.

3. Ensure Proper compilations & Maintenance of Files

Ensuring proper customer service is a continuous process in banking business. Which is

vital for it success. The service starts from the first day of customer interaction with
banker. To know customer, maintain interaction, conducting banking activities for the
security purposes the file maintenance of individual client is most important. If one single
paper is missing then it can create a big problem as well as hazard to both banker and
their customer. Therefore both branch management and all personnel should more
conscious about the proper compilations as well as decoration for keeping important files.

4. Ensure availability of Machineries

Every department should ensure the availability and proper maintenance of necessary
machines like photocopy and printing machines.

5. Ensure employee satisfaction

Management of the bank has to provide time to time recognition of their employee.
Moreover short probationary period and on time promotion motivated the employee to
perform well in their day to day activities. But the most important thing is the overall
motivational activities should be proceeding under fair judgment based on performance
rather internal politics. In addition through assurance of proper division of labor,
incentive for over duty and mandatory leave help to overcome huge working load and
enjoy a sound as well as healthy life. Besides good relationship amongst employee and
sound working environment also help the employee to be satisfied with their job.

6. Ensure proper promotional activities

They must prepare an organized set of plan regarding the advertising and promotional
activities which should include billboards, internet advertising and sponsorship. The sales
team and officers should provide periodic training on interacting and dealing with
different classes of potential and existing customers.

7. Ensure effective computer literacy

As the bank is now mostly depends on computer therefore to increase the computer skills
of employees, the bank should provide training. Though they have knowledge about
computer but it is not enough. So bank should provide training to their employees to
make them efficient in computer.

8. Ensure of proper Decoration and expanded office area

Laxmibazar branch authorization should have to be more conscious and innovative in

their interior decoration to attract client from all ages. As Laxmibazar area is the business
area so the rush of client is the common scenario of this branch so the space should be
extended for conducting and performing sound banking activities, service as well.

6.2 Conclusion

During the three-month internship program of Janata Bank Ltd. at Laxmibazar Branch,
almost the entire almost desk has been observed more or less. Gaining knowledge of general
banking to compare this practical knowledge with theoretical knowledge. Though all
departments and sections are covered in the internship program, it is not possible to go to the
depth or each activities of division because of time limitation. So, objectives of this internship
program have not been fulfilled with complete satisfaction. However, highest effort has been
given to achieve the objectives the internship program. The banking sector of Bangladesh
played an important role towards economic growth in Bangladesh. The financial sector of
Bangladesh is now considered to be the most regulated sector as compared to other sectors.
Janata bank limited is the second-generation bank in the country.
JBL always try to increase their profitability through different service reaching to the
customer hand. To be more near to the customer they are increasing their branches as well as
services. And that’s why their no. of branches is more than 911 (on 04.01.2017). More
services providing more easily how can be done always they analyze about that. To be more
than 40 years’ experience, they have the great advantage to journey a long path. They believe
that customers’ satisfaction is the indicator of wealth maximization. During my job I got lots
of opportunity to achieve experience how to deal with the clients what the behavior should be
an official which is not possible gain from the book or in the class. It was great job in the
banking environment. I got a real communication skill in the office to expand my confidence
level. Sometimes people become so crazy and angry but we have to tolerate and make them
understand though they are wrong. So this way of behave may help in future on job career.
