COMMERCIAL BANKING IN PAKISTAN


The word 'Bank' is said to have been derived from the words Bancus or Banque or Bank. This history of banking is traced to as early as 2000 B.C. The priests in Greece used to keep money and valuables of the people in temples. These priests thus acted as financial agents. The origin of banking is also traced to early goldsmiths.It was very difficult for Pakistan to build up its own Banking system immediately after independence without sufficient resources. Following the announcement of the partition plan in June 1947 there was a haste movement on the parts of banks to transfer their funds and accounts across the borders. The banks having their registered offices in Pakistan were transferred to India. In an effort to bring about the collapse of the new state by the persecuting an international policy of withdrawal, the Indian bank offices closed quickly. Those banks, which stayed, were considering the winding up of their business. By 30th June 1948 the number of schedule banks in Pakistan declined from mere scratch. Today there are more than 7000 branches of commercial banks along with an established network of supplementary financial institutions. All this development in the banking sector is the result of untiring efforts of four decades.

History of Banking In Pakistan


The interesting point which I observed during the span of mine job was the historical background of Banking & Financial sector which is the one in which great improvement and growth is observed since the formation of Pakistan. For studying the growth of this sector we can divide it into three stages, which are as follows: a) b) c) Pre-Nationalization Era Nationalization Era Post Nationalization Era

Pre Nationalization period:


There were only two Muslim banks in Indo Pak before partition; they were .Habib Bank Ltd. (est. in 1941 at Bombay) & Australia Bank Ltd. (est. In 1944 at Lahore). All other banks, at that time, were either owned by Hindus or Foreigners. At the time of partition there were 631 bank branches in area which came under Pakistani control. But due to blood shed and violence at large scale, mostly branches were closed and the disparity can be assessed from the fact that on July 1948 there were 195 branches with deposits of Rs.88 crore (880 million) only. Also a factor lagging in Pakistani industry was a central bank of its own, by that time Reserve Bank of India was acting as central bank for both countries and same currency notes were used in both territories. But Reserve Bank of India was biased and Set down Pakistan on many occasions such as the issue of funds transfer etc. In this period drastic steps were taken in government sector for the improvement of overall position. The private sector also responded to these changes and some very positive changes were observed. Some of the steps taken by the government in this regard were as under:

Job Report

Habib Bank Limited

1) Inauguration of State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) on 1st July, 1948. 2) Setting up of National Bank of Pakistan in November, 1949 to control the 'jute' export in East Pakistan and to act as agent of SBP. 3) Larger powers were given to SBP through SBP Act (1956) for controlling purposes. 4) Banking Companies Ordinance 1962 for protection and guidance to banks. 5) Establishment of specialized banks, such as ADBP (1952); a) HBFC (Nov, 1952); b) P1CIC (Oct, 1957) c) IDBP (Aug. 1961); d) NDFC (Jan, 1973).
These were the steps, which built a strong banking sector in Pakistan. This is also obvious from the facts that by 1973 there were almost 10 foreign banks were working in Pakistan and all over deposit position was around Rs.2300 crore (23,000 million). A bird eye view of 5 top banks was as given below:

B) NATIONALIZATION PERIOD
On January 01, 1974 all Pakistani banks were nationalized through Nationalization Act 1974. Under this law all Pakistani banks became a public property. All small banks were merged in bigger banks to create 5 major Pakistani banks Pakistani banks. These banks were to control by Pakistan Banking Council. There are still controversies about this act of government as whether it contributed in success of failure of banks. However the major changes after nationalization were as follows: Working of banks was extended to under developed areas. Market expansion for credit and deposits. Decrease in service level of bank officers. Decrease in profitability as well. However the effect of expansion was enormous and it can also be depicted with the help of table 2 which shows the deposit & branch positions of different nationalized banks.

POST NATIONALIZATION ERA

In 1990 the government decided to denationalize all the nationalized institutes. Some was also suggested in banking sector. For this purpose, amendments were made to Nationalization Act 1974 and two nationalized banks were privatized. Along with this a permission to open banks in private sector was also granted. The rules regarding establishment of new banks and for incoming foreign banks were also relaxed. The- privatized banks are;

a) MCB taken up by a private group in April, 1991 b) ABL taken up by its own employees in September, 1991. c) UBL taken up by UAE party in 2002.
d) December 29, 2003 HBL was taken by AKFED After these changes a large number of private and foreign banks started their operations in Pakistan and the present status can be seen from the following figure:

Swot analysis
Strengths
Strength can be defined as an area where a company is best at doing something or a feature that puts the company at an advantage in comparison to its competitors. HBL enjoys the following strengths: HABIB BANK is a well established bank enjoying long history of over 65 years of experience and profitable operation. HBL is the largest private bank in Pakistan now and people trust is very high. It has the largest branch network among private banks of Pakistan.

During this process more than 1,600 employees were relieved under a golden handshake scheme and 110 branches were closed. Excellent branches appearance gives an edge to HBL over other banks. HBL has the ability to bring innovative products and services like personalized

service, electronic funds Transfer, sophisticated financial products such as electronic banking, auto-teller machines and evening banking. The Banks Rupee Traveler Cheques have been market leaders for the past six years. HBLs car to car financing scheme is unique in auto loan segment. Habib bank is an internationally recognized name in banking services and products. HBL has forged strategic alliances with international banks for expanding its network further, both locally and internationally.

Weaknesses
A weakness is defined as an area in an organization where the organization is not as good at doing something as its competitors or a thing which an organization lacks thus putting the organization at disadvantage in comparison to its competitors. Based on the above definition, HBL has the following weaknesses. Lack of communication between bank and customers about terms and condition of products and services. Like centralization of cheque book issuing process. Employees at branch level are not properly motivated to work by heart. They take the all routine activities as a boring job. Most of the employees lack managerial training as they are not properly educated. Due to seniority, they have moved up on the hierarchy line to Grade-I, II or III positions having hardly bachelor degrees. This type of senior staff cannot apply the modern and innovative techniques of management in decision making. Mission of HBL is not well defined. Though HBL is second largest bank in Pakistan, yet the fact remains that it is not market leader as NBP. Its total assets are always less than NBP total assets. Now as it is a privatize bank that is why GOVERNAMENT support to HBL decreased as it was in past

Opportunities
An opportunity can be defined as a change in external environment which if properly exploited with the organizational strengths will result in enhanced sales, market share, or income. Using its strengths, HBL can avail the following opportunities. Opportunities require explanation therefore I have used headings instead of arrows E-Banking Generally speaking, three factors, quickness, easiness and cheapness have become the catchwords for the competitiveness and usefulness of all the business operations. Particularly it is commonplace today to say that banking is undergoing a radical transformation. Only those banks that use their technology resources effectively have the opportunity to secure real competitive advantage in this fast-changing industry through real product or service differentiation. High mark up rates Of late markup rates have increased considerably. Present rates are 4% above KIBOR i.e. 16% appx. High markup rate has decreased the interest of people in loaning from from banks. Habib bank can increase its income by offering loan at lower interest rate than other banks.

ONLINE BANKING It is doing banking transactions through our home P.C. The banks that do business through net have WebsitesSo Habib bank should focus heavily on providing online banking faculties to its customers. Currently it is doing the same. CORPORATE BANKING TERMINAL (CBT) Large corporate customers can log into the bank's database and have access to their accounts/transactions from their business houses. This facility has still not been started for customers in Pakistan. So Habib can focus on that. AUTOMATIC TELLER MACHINE (ATM) This system is known as "Any Time Money" because it allows customers who have an ATM card to withdraw money at any time from the bank without interacting with human teller.. It allows customers to transact with the bank 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. They allow the customers to transfer money to and from accounts to view account information, to receive cash. It can also be used to deposit cheques and cash into the accounts. No bank in Pakistan is offering this service currently. So an opportunity exists for Habib bank to differentiate. Rate of return The range and choice of products available & offered by the commercial banks is limited. Rates of Return / Profits on Deposits are so low and unattractive that very limited options are available to the depositors. They do not match the current rate of inflation. HBL differentiate and increase its deposit by offering attractive rate of return on deposits.

Threats
Threat can be defined as a change in external environment which if not met with proper strategies will result in loss of revenues, market share, or income. In the context of HBLs external environment, the following potential threats exist: Other private commercial bank with sound profitability is also a threat to HBL e.g. UBL, Alfalah, MCB etc The Rupee Travelers Cheque (RTC) sales volumes may be affected on account of regulatory restriction imposed by SBP on issuance of large value denominations. For the last of 2 to 3 years, Pakistan is facing economic and political instability which is a big threat. Foreign banks are flourishing in field of consumer financing. Afghan war and Iraq war has a deep effect on the economy of Pakistan, which has affected HBL. Increased regulations from State Bank of Pakistan may affect its business.

Habib Bank Limited

matchless features and unique options at the end of the lease. Now customer can drive a new car at the end of every two years.

Features
Pay only for what you use When customer lease a car under HBL CarToCar, he only pay for that part of the cars value that he use during the lease term. The cars residual value (forecasted for the end of the specific lease term) is agreed with him at the start of the lease term. This amount is deducted from the car price thus lowering the finance amount. This finance amount is based only on a part of the cars value and not the full value of the car. Therefore, HBL CarToCar offers very low installments as compared to any conventional financing. Upgrade of lifestyle HBL gives customer the guarantee that if he wishes to return the car to HBL at the end of the lease term, he will not have to pay off the cars residual value. Instead, HBL will directly settle this outstanding liability for customer under the buy back guarantee. Hence, he can upgrade to a new car as frequently as two years without any complication and hassle. Affordability With HBL CarToCar, customer only has to pay the difference between the car price and the pre-agreed residual value to the bank. As a result, the monthly installment may even be 40% to 50% less than that of conventional financing. Flexibility HBL CarToCar offers customers several choices at the end of the lease term: Upgrade - Simply return the car to HBL and drive a new one home Walk away - Return the car to HBL and end the lease Buy - Keep the same car. Just make a one-time settlement of the cars residual value to HBL or pay the same in easy installments over a specified extended period of time Sell - Enjoy the gain from selling off the car at a higher price in the market than what you ay HBL as the residual value

Recommendations
As we seen from the previous analysis of the financial statements I have realized that that Habib Bank is performing very well since its inception. It is quite difficult to give suggestion to improve the banking conditions Habib Bank Limited. As we know that nothing is perfect, there is always a room for improvement, so I will recommend following suggestions for HBL:

Job Report

Habib Bank Limited

1) Employees Training programmes must be introduced on continuous basis so that Employees have understanding with the latest developments especially with the customers. 2) Bank should introduced incentive plans for employees on regular basis so that if employees may work whole heartedly for the welfare of their organization. While giving incentives qualification, work, experience, hard work and such other factors must be considered. 3) Mismanagement of resources must be avoided as much as possible as it decreases profit but also discourage hard worker and honest employees. 4) Fresh graduates must be recruited. As the combination of Experienced and fresh can produce better results and it will improve the efficiency of management. 5) Habib Bank is going towards mobile banking but the problem is that a common client has no idea of its usage due to lack of marketing. I think that a proper marketing programme must be launched for clients awareness. 6) Banks different schemes must be conveyed to the targeted customers so that to have a reasonable share in market. 7) Bank should help the society by providing interest free loans to the Talented Students. 8) Online Banking should be introduced in all the branches. 9) To motivate the employees their remuneration / salaries should be made at par with top tier Banks. 10)Aggressive publicity campaign must be introduced through press and Electronic media for new products and scheme by initiating vigorous marketing policy. 11)Bank should adopt such an induction plan that when a customer opens his account with the bank he should be supplied with a booklet which enables him to know the procedure of filing the cheques, pay-in-slip etc. It will save a lot of time of the bank staff afterward during the conduct of the account of that customer. 12) The attitude of the bankers with all of their customers is not the same; they pay more attention and good service to some of the customers and neglect a major portion of them. Some of the customers approach to the bank officials and get their work done before others; it is not a good practice. All the customers should be treated equally. 13)HBL should increase its communication with customers about the terms and conditions of its different products and services.

Discussing a problem faced by the credit department & recommendations for it: Non-performing loans(NPL);

These are such loans which are no more profitable for the bank or in other words those loans which fall into the categories of bad debts are called NPL. Classification of NPL: We can classify NPLs into the following categories: 1. Substandard. 2. Doubtful. 3. Loss. 1. Substandard: When markup amount remains outstanding from day 1 to 89th day the particular finance is marked substandard on the 90th day. 2. Doubtful: When the markup amount remains outstanding from 91 day to 179th day then the particular finance is marked as doubtful on the 180th day.
st

3. Loss: When the markup amount remains outstanding above the 180 day then the finance is marked as loss.
th

All the finances in which markup is stuck and fall in particular categories are called classified amounts and are treated as NPL. Remedies to avoid NPL: Banks are taking special measures to avoid NPL by applying different warning systems given by State Bank of Pakistan. SBP has introduces early warning system which is applicable for all commercial/scheduled banks. According to that system any account which will fall in any of the above classification will be regularly monitored and kept in continuous observation. More over these accounts will be in systems early warning category.
