Operation in 'an! adesh

The development process of a country largely depends upon its economic activities. Banking is a powerful medium among other spheres of modern socio%economic activities for bringing about socio%economic changes in a developing country like Bangladesh. Three different sectors like socio%economic changes in a developing country like Bangladesh. Three different sectors like (griculture, commerce, and industry provide the bulk of a country2s wealth. 4ith the passage of time the functions of the bank has got a multi%dimensional configuration. 5f all the functions of a modern bank, lending is by far the most important. They provide both short%term and long term credit. The customers come from all walks of life, from a small business a multi%national corporation having its business activities all around the world. The banks have to satisfy the re uirements of different customers belonging to different social groups. To regulate the activities of other banks, al the commercial private and0 or nationali&ed, and speciali&ed banks perform service related activities within the jurisdiction of the /entral Bank. 'n our /ountry, Bangladesh the role of the central bank is entitled to be e$ecuted by Bangladesh Bank. The banking system at independence consisted of two branch offices of the former State Bank of #akistan and seventeen large commercial banks, two of which were controlled by Bangladeshi interests and three by foreigners other than 4est #akistanis. There were fourteen smaller commercial banks. Airtually all banking services were concentrated in urban areas. The newly independent government immediately designated the "haka branch of the State Bank of #akistan as the central bank and renamed it the Bangladesh Bank. The bank was responsible for regulating currency, controlling credit and monetary policy, and administering e$change control and the official foreign e$change reserves. The Bangladesh government initially nationali&ed the entire domestic banking system and proceeded to reorgani&e and rename the various banks. +oreign%owned banks were permitted to continue doing business in Bangladesh. The insurance business was also nationali&ed and became a source of potential investment funds. /ooperative credit systems and postal savings offices handled service to small individual and rural accounts. The new banking system succeeded in establishing reasonably efficient procedures for managing credit and foreign e$change. The primary function of the credit system throughout the ;BCDs was to finance trade and the public sector, which together absorbed C? percent of total advances. The government2s encouragement during the late ;BCDs and early ;BEDs of agricultural development and private industry brought changes in lending strategies. .anaged by the Bangladesh Frishi Bank, a speciali&ed agricultural banking institution, lending to farmers and fishermen dramatically e$panded. The number of rural bank branches doubled between ;BCC and ;BE?, to more than 8,88D. "enationali&ation and private industrial growth led the Bangladesh Bank and the 4orld Bank to focus their lending on the emerging private manufacturing sector. Scheduled bank advances to private agriculture, as a percentage of sectoral !"#, rose from = percent in +G ;BCB to ;; percent in +G ;BEC, while advances to private manufacturing rose from ;8 percent to ?8 percent. The transformation of finance priorities has brought with it problems in administration. No sound project%appraisal system was in place to identify viable borrowers and projects. Lending institutions did not have ade uate autonomy to choose borrowers and projects and were often instructed by the political authorities. 'n addition, the incentive system for the banks stressed disbursements rather than recoveries, and the accounting and debt collection systems were inade uate to deal with the problems of loan recovery. 't became more common for borrowers to default on loans than to repay them: the lending system was simply

disbursing grant assistance to private individuals who ualified for loans more for political than for economic reasons. The rate of recovery on agricultural loans was only =C percent in +G ;BE@, and the rate on industrial loans was even worse. (s a result of this poor showing, major donors applied pressure to induce the government and banks to take firmer action to strengthen internal bank management and credit discipline. (s a conse uence, recovery rates began to improve in ;BEC. The National /ommission on .oney, /redit, and Banking recommended broad structural changes in Bangladesh2s system of financial intermediation early in ;BEC, many of which were built into a three%year compensatory financing facility signed by Bangladesh with the '.+ in +ebruary ;BEC. 5ne major e$ception to the management problems of Bangladeshi banks was the !rameen Bank, begun as a government project in ;BC@ and established in ;BE8 as an independent bank. 'n the late ;BEDs, the bank continued to provide financial resources to the poor on reasonable terms and to generate productive self%employment without e$ternal assistance. 'ts customers were landless persons who took small loans for all types of economic activities, including housing. (bout CD percent of the borrowers were women, who were otherwise not much represented in institutional finance. /ollective rural enterprises also could borrow from the !rameen Bank for investments in tube wells, rice and oil mills, and power looms and for leasing land for joint cultivation. The average loan by the !rameen Bank in the mid%;BEDs was around Tk.=,DDD H)SI@?<, and the ma$imum was just Tk;E,DDD Hfor construction of a tin%roof house<. *epayment terms were > percent for rural housing and E.? percent for normal lending operations. The !rameen Bank e$tended collateral%free loans to =DD,DDD landless people in its first ;D years. .ost of its customers had never dealt with formal lending institutions before. The most remarkable accomplishment was the phenomenal recovery rate: amid the prevailing pattern of bad debts throughout the Bangladeshi banking system, only > percent of !rameen Bank loans were overdue. The bank had from the outset applied a speciali&ed system of intensive credit supervision that set it apart from others. 'ts success, though still on a rather small scale, provided hope that it could continue to grow and that it could be replicated or adapted to other development%related priorities. The !rameen Bank was e$panding rapidly, planning to have ?DD branches throughout the country by the late ;BEDs. Beginning in late ;BE?, the government pursued a tight monetary policy aimed at limiting the growth of domestic private credit and government borrowing from the banking system. The policy was largely successful in reducing the growth of the money supply and total domestic credit. Net credit to the government actually declined in +G ;BE@. The problem of credit recovery remained a threat to monetary stability, responsible for serious resource misallocation and harsh ine uities. (lthough the government had begun effective measures to improve financial discipline, the draconian contraction of credit availability contained the risk of inadvertently discouraging new economic activity. +oreign e$change reserves at the end of +G ;BE@ were )SI>C@ million, e uivalent to slightly more than = months worth of imports. This represented a =D%percent increase of reserves over the previous year, largely the result of higher remittances by Bangladeshi workers abroad. The country also reduced imports by about ;D percent to )SI=.> billion. Because of Bangladesh2s status as a least developed country receiving concessional loans, private creditors accounted for only about @ percent of outstanding public debt. The e$ternal public debt was )SI@.> billion, and annual debt service payments were )SI>@C million at the end of +G ;BE@.

The bank is highly li uid and earns much profit on owner2s e uity. Bank2s operating efficiency is good. 6#S is increasing double per year and earning spread is also increasing. So after all we can say that as a nationali&ed bank commercial bank Sonali Bank Limited is a bank which is earning better than other nationali&ed bank. 3on usion @ Reco#endation Conclusion: (s a bank Sonali Bank Limited has to do a lot of things for the betterment of the country. The Bank is strongly positioned in the market and with its core strengths it can match shareholders2 e$pectations and thus raise their wealth in future through ethical banking and best pricing. Thus, it has to take initiative so that it can fulfill the desire of the govt. as well as people. 't will enhance more public services and build up working teams to provide the best services to its valuable customers. 't must be run in organi&ed way and discipline must be ensured in all sphere of its performance. 6fficient e$port team, import team and remittance team must be formed and perform duties properly. .ore training, computeri&ation, data collection, market analysis and swiftness in servicing are essentially re uired.
