HISTORY OF BANKING

Evolution of Banking
It has not so far been decided as to how the word ‘Bank’
originated. The explanation of this origin is attributed to
the fact that the jews in Lombardy transacted the business
of money exchange on banches in the market place and
when the business failed, the people destroyed the Bank.
Incidentally, the word ‘bankrupt’ is said to have been
evolved from this practice. The opponents of this opinion
argue that it was so, then how is that the Italian
moneychangers were never called ‘Banchierei’ in the
Middle Ages?

Other authorities hold the opinion that the word ‘Bank’ is


derived from the German word back which means joined
stock fund. Then ‘Back’ was Italianize into ‘Bank’.

Early Growth
Banking in fact is as primitive as human society for
eversince man came to realise the importance of money
as a medium of exchange. Perhaps it was the Babylonians
who developed banking system as early as 2000 B.C. It is
evident that the Temples of Babylon were used as ‘Banks’
because of the prevalent respect and confidence in the
clergy.

63

King Hamurabi ( 1728 – 1686 B.C ), the founder of the


Babylonian empire, drew up accede where in he laid down
standard rules of procedure for banking operations by
temples and great landlords. He got his code inscribed on
the block of diorite about 8 feet tall, containing about 150
paragraphs which deals with nearly all aspects of loans,
interest, pledges, guarantees, natural accidents, loss, theft
etc. Later on Sumerians, Babylonians, Hitties and
Assyrians standardised the values of the goods in silver,
copper and bronze.

It is not certain as to whom invented money but history


recess that king of Lydia castled electrum ingots of
identical shapes and of uniform weights with a triple
emblem engraved on it as an official guarantee of value in
687 B.C. In 1401 a German public bank was framed
comprising the operations of discounting and transferring
of money. By the 16th century, some more public banks
were formed in Venice, Milan, Amsterdam, Hamburg and
Nuremburg. In order to streamline Banking organisations
and techniques, conferences were held in Nuremburg from
1548 to 1551 and it was agreed that the commercial
interest of the time needed a bank with facilities of growth
and transfer but it should not be a bank run by private
individuals. Ultimately in 1587, a State Bank under the
name of banco DI rialto was formed in Genoa. Later the
bank of Amsterdam was also formed in 1609. This Bank
had a guarantee by the State and rendered valuable
services to the Netherlands traders upto the year 1795.

63

Similarly in 1690, the Bank of Hamburg came into


existence in Hamburg with the business of accepting
deposits of fine silver or of foreign money and to run
accounts on these deposits. This Bank rendered great
service to the merchants as well as countries it dealt with
until 1873, when it was merged with the Reich bank. By
the year 1700, the bank of England was not only issuing
notes but also conducting accounts for customers. Its
directors were conducting the business like that of limited
companies. The bank had the monopoly of issuing banking
notes. Upto 1813 or there about in England, the main profit
of bank was derived from the circulation of notes.

Development of Modern Banking


In 1918 came into being eleven clearing banks of today.
The effect of this historical development of banking in
England has been fairly wide. First, emergence of a small
number of large banks with wide network of branches.
Second, increase in the popularity of bank accounts and a
large-scale use of cheques.

In 1946, the labour government nationalised the bank of


England and transferred the existing stock to the nominee
of British treasury. In 1955, the British Banks made a
departure from traditional banking by undertaking hire-
purchase finance for companies buying industrial plants
and machinery and took interest on hire-purchase finance.

Banking In Pakistan
At the time of independence, there were 631 offices of
scheduled banks in Pakistan, of which 487 were located in
West Pakistan alone. As a new country without resources
it was very difficult for Pakistan to run its own banking
system immediately. Therefore, the expert committee
recommended that the Reserve Bank of India should
continue to function in Pakistan until 30th September 1948,
so that problems of time and demand liability, coinage
currencies, exchange etc. be settled between India and
Pakistan. The non-Muslims started transferring their funds
and accounts to India. By the end of June 1948 the
number of officers of scheduled banks in Pakistan declined
from 631 to 225. There were 19 foreign banks with the
status of small branch offices that were engaged solely in
export of crop from Pakistan, while there were only two
Pakistani institutions, Habib Bank of Pakistan and the
Australasia Bank. The customers of the bank are not
satisfied with the uncertain condition of banking. Similarly
the Reserve Bank of India was not in the favour of Govt. of
Pakistan. The Govt. of Pakistan decided to establish a full-
fledge central bank. Consequently the Governor-general of
Pakistan Quaid-I-Azam inaugurated the State Bank of
Pakistan on July 1, 1948. Thus a landmark was made in the
history of banking when the state bank of Pakistan
assumed full control of banking and currency in Pakistan.

The banking structure in Pakistan comprises of the


following types.

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

1) State Bank of Pakistan.

2) Commercial Bank of Pakistan.

3) Saving banks.

4) Co-operative banks

5) Specialised credit institutions.

Up to December 31, 1973, there were 14 Pakistan


commercial banks that functioned all over the country and
in some foreign countries through a network of branches.
All these commercial banks were nationalised in January 1,
1974, and were recognised and merged into the following
five banks:

1) National Bank of Pakistan

2) Muslim commercial bank limited

3) Habib Bank Limited

4) United Bank Limited

5) Allied Bank of Pakistan

The state bank of Pakistan is the Central bank of the


country and was established on July 1, 1948.The
separation of East Pakistan and its repercussion in the
form of economic depression has caused a lot of difficulties
to the banking system in Pakistan. The network of bank
branches now covers a very large segment of national
economy. The numbers of branches have increased
appreciably and there is now on branch of bank for every
3000 heads of population approximately. There is done
reasonable growth in deposits from the establishment of

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

Pakistan. Besides this growth, specialised credit and


financial institutions have also developed over the years.

The Government of Pakistan in the late 90’s introducing


the need for the privatisation of state owned banks and
companies. The private sector has accepted the challenge
and most of the banks are privatised today. The State Bank
of Pakistan issues the shares of these periodically. Bank
employees and other common peoples can also purchase
these shares and earn profit.

partition of the Indo-Pak Subcontinent, the bank moved to
Dhaka from where it commenced business in August 1948.

1990, introducing the need for privatization of state owned
banks companies. In April 1991, MCB became Pakistan’s
first privatized bank. The government of Pakistan
transferred the management of the Bank to National
Group, a group of leading industrialists of the country by
selling 26% shares of the bank.

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

In terms of agreement between the Government of


Pakistan and the National Group, the group, making their
holding 50% has purchased additional 24% shares. Now,
25% is purchased by the Government, which shall be sold
in the near future.

Overall performance Of MCB in 1998


Net Profit
Profit after taxation in 1998 was Rs. 399.2 million, an
increase of 67% from Rs. 238.8 million in 1997. Since a
complete provision for non-performing assets has been
made, the balance of the bank now reflects its true
strength. For the first time after MCB’s privatization in
1991, a dividend of 15% was declared last year. It gives
me great pleasure to state that for the year 1998 it has
been decided to announce an increased dividend of 17.5%.

Reserve Fund/Equity
A sum of Rs. 79.8 million has been transferred to Statutory
Reserve this year, raising the total Reserves to Rs. 1,796.6
million at the end of 1998, from Rs. 1,716.8 million as last
year.

Deposits
Deposits with the Bank at the end of year 1998 stood at
Rs. 123.8 billion as compared to Rs. 124.4 billion in 1997.
The reason for this slight decrease of 0.4% was the
withdrawal of Foreign Currency Accounts as a result of

Government’s decision to freeze Foreign Currency


Accounts in May 1998. Let me assure you with confidence
that the depositors have complete faith in MCB, which is
evident from the fact that in the very first month of
launching the MCB Maal-a-Maal Rupee Deposit Certificates
Scheme attracted Rs. 7.6 billion.

Advances
Total Advances at the end of 1998 were Rs. 62.9 billion as
compared to Rs. 64.4 billion in 1997 showing a fall of 2.3%.
This is mainly due to the slowing down of economy
following the events described above, as well as, in
keeping with our policy of prudent lending.

settlement of accounts. The recovery of loans shall remain
a priority in 1999.

Foreign Trade
The bank conducted Import business during the year
amounting to Rs. 54.0 billion as compared to Rs. 56.4
billion in 1997. The export business slightly improved to
Rs. 36.9 billion from Rs. 35.1 billion in 1997. Home
remittances declined to Rs. 16.7 billion from 30.6 billion.

the confidence of the Pakistanis working overseas.

Rupee Travellers Cheques


Muslim Commercial Bank who are pioneers of Rupee
Travellers Cheque in Pakistan maintained their leadership
position and sales recovered during the year 1998 were
Rs. 67 billion an increase of 57% over the previous year.

Human Resources
To induct fresh blood in the bank and cater for future
needs, a new batch of management trainees was selected
strictly on merit. After thorough training these offices have
been inducted in various divisions and branches. Attention
was paid to upgrade operational and managerial skills of
staff and a number of professional courses were conducted
at MCB Staff and Training Institutes during the year. We
have continued our programme of hiring of some senior
level Banking Executives from the market, wherever
necessary.

Year 2000 Compliance


The management and the staff of relevant divisions are
fully aware about the Millenium issues. All the core
computer systems operating in MCB are in full compliance.
All the necessary steps had been taken and MCB was very
much aware about the Y2K bug.

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

Automation
The progress is as per plan. At the end of 1998, 75
branches were online and 241 branches have been
computerized with multi terminal systems. 66 ATMs were
in operation and over 50,000 ATM Cards had been issued.
The commercial cities of Faisalabad and Multan were
added on the MCB ATM Network. Plans are in hand for
expanding the online network to major cities and covering
all the four provinces thereby providing the ATM network
true national coverage and maintaining our in this service.

Social Sector
The bank had been actively participating in ex-Prime
Minister’s Self Employment Scheme (SES). The
applications received from various applicants were being
processed on merit and disposed off as quickly as possible.
Nowadays, no new loans are being granted as per the
order of Chief Executive of Pakistan.

Foreign Operations
Our bank’s foreign operations in Bangladesh and Sri Lanka
continue to remain profitable. In April 1999, the bank
opened its third branch in Sri Lanka at Maradana a suburb
of Colombo.

Our country is passing through a critical phase of its


history. Pakistan’s economy continues to remain under
pressure as it adjusts to new economic challenges and
realities. The performance of the economy directly

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

influences the performance of the financial sector. MCB is


cognizance of its role in the national economy, and will
continue to play its role as a lead bank.

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

Chairman’s Review
1998 was an eventful year for our country. Pakistan joined
the polity of nuclear powers and strategic imbalance
created in the region due to a nuclear test by a
neighboring country was restored.

The May 1998 Nuclear Test led to the imposition of


sanctions and suspension of multilateral assistance by the
leading Western Aid giving countries, putting the
Pakistan’s economy and balance of payment position
under severe pressure.

The Government of Pakistan took a number of far reaching


decisions in the wake of the Nuclear Test which included
freezing of Foreign Currency Accounts, introduction of
three Foreign Exchange rates and increase in Petrol prices
and Sales Tax.

Overall 1998 was difficult and challenging year for the


nation especially for trade and commerce and industrial
sectors.

However, as a result of various corrective measures taken


by the Government, the economy is now slowly coming
back to normal. According to a recent statement of the
Federal Finance Minister, the inflation rate has been
brought down to around 6% and the Foreign Exchange
Reserves which had touched US$ 440 Million in 1998, were
at US$ 1.8 Billion by the end of April 1999.

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

In keeping with the W.T.O. requirement, the Government


also had to reduce the custom duty on Imports. There has
been a small drop in electricity tariff for industrial and
commercial consumers. The State Bank of Pakistan
reduced the Repo rates from 16.5% to 15.5% and then to
14%. This resulted in reduction in mark up rates by the
large commercial banks in April 1999, which is bound to
encourage higher credit growth.

The economy still faces major challenges. The growth rate


of economy has gone down to around 4% from 6%. The
Export target of US$10 billion for the current financial year
ending June 30, 1999, has been reduced to US$8 billion
(this figure is static for the last few years now). However,
there is likely to be significant reduction in the Trade
Deficit during 1998-99.

A very significant achievement of 1998 was holding of


population census after 17 years, which was necessary to
formulate various socio-economic policies by the
Government.

Keeping with the above economic scenario in view, the


over-all performance of Muslim Commercial Bank, during
1998 can be termed as very satisfactory

63

♦ Black listed certificate

♦ Consular invoice

♦ Health, Vetenary, Sanitation certificate

Export
Usually the exporter does not rely on the credit of a banker
in the country of importer, and insist on a confirmation
from a banker carrying on business in his own country.
Thus this department of a bank helps the exporters to
settle down their financial affairs. For exporting it is
necessary for exporter to get export license from the chief
controller of import and export after registration.

Documents are required for the registration such as N. I. C.


Card, income tax certificate, bank certificate which shows
that the exporter is his account holder and have a good
dealing with them. In response to the letter of credit

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

exporter submit the following documents to the


negotiating bank.

♦ Bill of exchange

♦ Invoice

♦ Bill of lading or Airway bill/railway receipt/truck receipt

♦ Insurance documents

♦ Packing list

♦ Any other documents, if so required.

The negotiating bank will send the same documents to the


issuing bank. In accordance with the terms and condition
laid down in letter of credit.

Security of Documents
Whether documents received are meant for the opening
bank and specifically for the branch which established the
letter of credit. The documents would be negotiated within
the validity of L/C. The goods have been shipped within
the time allowed under L/C. The goods are mentioned in
invoice and other documents (e.g. bill of lading, packing
list etc) are in accordance with merchandise clause L/C.

Whether the documents received pertains to L/C ,


established by the opening bank and the documents
negotiated are within or equal to L/C amount. In case
where the value of documents exceeds the L/C amount,
the foreign bank may negotiate the documents for amount
being marginally excess or sends them on collection,

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

remittance may be allowed in excess subject to the


following conditions

♦ The amount does not exceed 5% of the amount of L/C


subject to the maximum of US$ 500/-

♦ The importers holds a valid import license against


which the excess amount is adjusted-provided
remittance is effected within 1.5 year from the date of
issue of import license.

The name of the importer on the Bill of Exchange does not


differ from that on the import license. The tenor of the bill
should be valid. See that the goods are not shipped prior
to the date of opening of L/C or the documents are not
stated.

The goods are consigned or endorsed in the favor of the


bank only opening the letter of credit, and in no case it
should be consigned to the importer directly.

Retirement of Documents
When the opening bank against a letter of credit receives
documents. The customer retires the documents under
different arrangements e.g.

♦ Retirement against payment by the importer

♦ Retirement of documents in case of None-payment by


the importer

♦ Retirement of documents under trust receipt

Retirement Against Payment by the Importer


The importer approaches the bank for retirement of the
shipping documents. Mark is calculated and recovered on

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

the bill amount for 230 days @ 12.55% for each RS. 100/-
or part thereof on payment against documents (PAD) for
intimation purpose only.

Entries Passed by the Bank


♦ Debit importer a/c

♦ Credit PLS-payment against documents A/C

♦ Credit: PLS-income a/c mark-up recovered on


PAD

♦ Credit: telegram/telex/postage charges a/c.

Retirement of Documents under Trust Receipt


Shipping documents are released to the importer on trust,
that he may get the goods cleared from the custom
authority by himself, sell the good, and later pay back the
bank. Trust receipt financing is limited to first class
customers only as the bank reposed fullest confidence on
the importer. Documents are obtained from the customer.
The finance is provided for the period of 45 days only.

Calculation of Amount of Finance


Rupee value of bill plus foreign bank charges plus taxes,
less SBP margin restriction = Amount of finance

Mark up is calculated @ 0.43 RS. Per 1000 per day on the


amount of finance utilized.

After the retirement of documents the opening bank then


transmit the funds to the negotiating bank. The exporter
will receive the payment from the negotiating bank.

Export Re–Financing
It is most important features of export. Export refinancing
is used to enhance the export of the country. It was firstly
started in 1977 and re-established in 1994. Here the
exporting companies can get advances at a very low mark
up i.e. lower then inflation rate. Banks get advances from
State bank at 6% and provide advances to the exporting
companies at 8% and 2% is spread of the bank i.e. is the
income of the bank. This export-refinancing advance can
only be used for export and not for other purposes, state
bank gets information about export through E – form.
There are two parts of export refinancing.

♦ P-1

♦ P-II

P-1
Two forms of P-1 are pre-shipment and port shipment

P-1 Pre-shipment
In P-1 pre-shipment companies make an agreement with
foreign companies and get loan from the bank to make
products and shipping them to foreign countries i.e. they
get advance before shipping the products.

P-1 Post-shipment
In P-1 the post-shipment companies make an agreement
with foreign countries and produce some of the products
and ship them and get advance from the bank to complete
the shipment.

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

P-II
In P-II pre-shipment companies get lumpsum for the whole
next year and the entire amount can be used to export the
products. The companies have to export double than the
advance gets through P-II shipment. In P-II pre-shipment
the lumpsum amount can be calculated on the basis of
performance of the last year. If a company is unable to
make double export than the advance, then bank makes
some penalty in the forms of amount against the company.

Special Products
Export refinancing cannot be applied for exporting all
types of products. Some products are

♦ Cotton cloth

♦ Cotton products

♦ Finished leather

♦ Refined sugar

♦ High quality yarn i.e. more than thirty count

Each company has different limit at a time and bank has to


make a report at the end of each month and one copy of
that report is sent to state bank and one copy to head
office at Karachi. Different limits are,

♦ Cash finance

♦ Running finance

♦ Demand finance

♦ Export refinancing I

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

♦ Export refinancing II

♦ FAFB

♦ FBP

Forms of Export Re Financing


Different forms are required for export refinancing. These
forms are

♦ Undertaking as per Annexe UT-DE-1

♦ Form DE-1

♦ Form DE-2

♦ Original contract

♦ Undertaking as per Annexe A

♦ Certificate of non-availment of loan.

63

CLEARING DEPARTMENT

Cheques
When we talk of cheques then there are two types of
cheques

1) Open Cheque
Open cheque has following properties:

♦ The word Bearer is not crossed.

♦ Cross stamp is not there

♦ Cheque is not of limited companies.

♦ Self or name should be written on the cheque.

Token
A token is given on open cheques when presented to bank
for payment. In this case payment is made at the spot to
the cheque holder. First of all cheque is presented to bank
for payment. The name of holder, no of cheque and
amount is written on the register by the bank employee &
token is given to cheque holder. Then Cheque reaches the
computer department. There it is again feeded in
computer & it is stamped after checking the holder has
enough amount in his account or not. After feeding in
computer ( debiting holder’s A/C ) , the cheque reaches
the cash department where the holder can receives his
cash by giving token to the cashier provided that he has
enough amount in his A/C.

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

2) Crossed cheque
When the cheque does not fulfil the requirement of open
cheque then it is known as crossed cheque.

A) Transfer Delivery
When cheque has following properties then it is proceeded
as Transfer Delivery.

♦ Cheque is crossed.

♦ Cheque is of MCB.

♦ Cheque is from local branch.

In this situation cheques are collected separately as


transfer Delivery.

Procedure
In Transfer Delivery following process is done.

First of all cheques are noted in Transfer Delivery Ledger


with the date in advance because it takes one day to reach
cheque issuing branch in the same city. In T.D Ledger
Name of account holder, Number & amount of Cheque are
written and two copies , one original and one carbon copy
of voucher SF-73 B are prepared. Original copy of voucher
along with cheque is send to issuing branch while carbon
copy and Pay-In-Slip is with the bank.

The cheque with voucher goes to Main branch then to


issuing branch and then reverse from issuing branch to
main branch and then to our branch.

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

B) Clearing
In clearing the cheques which are

♦ crossed

♦ limited company

♦ different bank in the same city

Procedure
Such cheques are collected as clearing cheques and are
noted in Clearing Ledger. Two copies of voucher SF-37 are
prepared (See Annexe ) . Original voucher with the
cheques are send to Main branch which then send to S.B.P
in advance date. The payment is not given at hand but it is
transferred to account of account holder. In case if cheque
is returned due to number of reasons then the objection is
finished and again send to main branch but this time a
credit voucher along with original cheque is send to main
branch instead of any Pay-In-Slip.

Advance Clearing
When cheque is sorted for clearing because of different
branch in the same city then we note these cheques in two
days advance date because it takes more time to reach
that faraway branch . For example HBL of Baha-ud-Din
Zakariya University Multan.

Procedure of Payment of Cheque of Foreign Currency

When cheques are denominated in foreign currency then


procedure is not like that of ordinary cheques of Rs. First of

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

all cheques are issued and the person give cheque to


another person. When any party receives cheque in
foreign currency to deposit in his account then it gives it to
the ban where he has his bank account. The Bank sends
this cheque to its Head Office. Head Office send it to the
country where transaction is done over that currency. Then
cheque goes to New York. From there it is send to that
issuing bank (domestic) from where party has received
cheque whose bank whose cheque it is. N.Y is credited and
that bank is debited by that amount. N.Y send it to head
office of our Bank. Then H.O is credited and N.Y is debited.
Amount of Foreign currency is then send to main or local
branch where the party has its account. Now the account
of that person is credited and the H.O is debited

Now there may be two cases:

1) Either account is in Pak Rs.

2) Or account is in that country

3) Or account is in Foreign Currency other than the


currency in cheque.

C) Cheque Collection
When cheque is from another city then it is grouped as
C.C.

Procedure
SF-37 form is used in Cheque collection (See Annexe )
Original voucher with cheque is send to main branch.

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

Carbon copy with Pay-In-Slip is taken by bank for record


purposes.

Pay-In-Slip
Here it is very necessary to have knowledge about Pay-In-
Slip

Purpose
It is used for two purposes

♦ Whenever we want to deposit cash in our account then


pay-in-slip is used by writing amount on it and
depositing it to cashier along with money.

♦ Whenever we have cheque from any party to be


collected in our account we fill pay-in-slip . One part is
attached with cheque and another is given to cheque
holder as a receipt.

Types
It is of two types depending upon the type of account.

♦ Green Pay-In-Slip is used for Saving Account (See


Annexe )

♦ Blue Pay-In-Slip is used for Current Account (See


Annexe )

Stamps Used In Bank (MCB)


Following stamps are used in for different purposes.
(1)Cross Stamp
This stamp is used to cross the cheque. Crossing can be
done by 3 ways.

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

a) General Crossing
Sometimes the cheque is crossed by the drawing two lines
on the upper left corner of the cheque without writing any
sentence on the cheque.

b) Written Crossing
Cheque can also be crossed by stamping it with sentence
“Pays Account Only”

c) Special Crossing
Crossing can also be done by stamping a cheque with the
words “MCB GBS Branch”. This means that now cheque is
in use of bank only. If it is lost or dropped then it is of no
use to anybody because now it is a cheque of bank. This
cheque will not be cashed any where else.

(2) “Payees Account Will be Credited on Realisation”


This is used to stamp on the back of following instruments.

Cheque (simple). 2) Travellers Cheque. 3) Pay Order. 4)


Speed Cash.

This means that the account of the payee will be credited


provided that cheque is accepted by Drawer’s bank
otherwise not.

(3) Disbursement Guaranteed; Payees Account will


be credited on Realisation
It is used to stamp on the back of following instruments

1) Demand Draft . 2) Foreign Remittance

63
Good Banking Getting Better Internship Report

(4) Payees Account Credited


This stamp is used on back of those cheques which are of
the same branch. It is of guarantee that if there is no
problem with the cheque or A/C then Payees account will
be credited.

(5) Clearing Stamp


This stamp is placed in front of clearing voucher on the
same day in which clearing was made (one day advance
date). Or the date in which it is presented by Main branch
in State Bank Of Pakistan.

(6) Round Stamp MCB


It is used in two places.

♦ When we are dealing with C.C then we write the


number of C.C which is written inside the stamp. One
stamp is on cheque and other on Pays-In-Slip.

♦ When we fill Pay-In-Slip and give it to the bank officer


along with cheque then he places this round stamp on
the face of one part of Pay-In-Slip and marks his
signature on it and give it to the customer as a
evidence.

(7) Pay Cash


This stamp is used when cheque is not crossed, it is open
cheque. The officer places this stamp on the front of
cheque and writes token number on it. This means that
payment in cash will be made of this cheque on
presentation of token to cashier. This is like indication for
cashier to pay cash.

63
