Third week: start from 19 August 2013)
The main objective is to know about the different functions of cash department.
CASH DEPARTMENT
In cash department both deposits and withdrawals go side by side. This
department works under the accounts department and deals with cash deposits
and payments. This department maintains the following sheets, books, ledger of
account:
Cash received voucher sheet.
Cash paid voucher sheet.
Paying-in-slip
Cheque Book
Cash balance book

Cash department is performing its job completely through computers. The
following staff members are performing their duties with patience and hard work..
Cash Paid Sheet
The only instrument that can be used to withdraw an amount from an account is
the Cheque book. No payments are made by another instrument. Cheques can
be of two types, they may be presented at the counter and encashed and the
others are clearing or transfer cheques.
Cashier manually inspect the Cheque for following:
Signature & date
Cross cutting
Drawees a/c title
Amounts in words & figures
Two signatures at the back

(20)
The cheques should not be stated as post dated. If in the Cheque there may
discrepancy regarding any of the aspects described above the cheque is

returned to the customer for rectification. On other hand if the cheque is valid in
all respects, the cashier enters the necessary inputs in the computer and post the
entry so that account balance is updated.
When cashier posts these entries, computer automatically display the balance
before posting the transaction amount, balance after posting. The cashier easily
and quickly see whether the amount being withdrawn so exceed the balance or
within the balance. If the amount does exceed the balance then it is upon the
discretion of the manager to allow an overdraft and not depending upon the
customers reputation. If he does not allow an over draft, the procedure.
Fourth Week: start from 26 August 2013)
Fourth week I spent in Remittance Department and learned following
things:The need of remittance is commonly felt in commercial life particularly and
in every day life general. A major function of any banking system is the transfer
of funds from one client or one place to another. By providing this service to the
customer the bank earns a lot of income in the form of service charges. This
department deals with local currency remittance i.e. remittance from one city to
another without actually carrying the currency. MCB uses following instrument for
transferring of money:
Demand Drafts (DD)
Pay Order (PO)
Telegraphic Transfer (TT)
Mail Transfer (MT)
Demand Drafts (DD)
DD is a written order given by the branch of the bank on behalf of the customer
to other branch of the same bank to pay the certain amount to the customer. DD
are issued for the particular place other than place of issuance. A drafts is a
(21)

Cheque drawn by a bank on its own branch or any other branch of another bank
at a different place requesting it to pay on demand a specified amount of money
which is already received to the person named on it. DD is of following two types:
In the first type as advice reaches for payment the immediately pay to the
customer while in later as DD presented by the customer, it is paid and the
suspense account is debited.
A printed application form is provided for filling in completely and signing by the
applicant. After depositing an amount of draft and commission of the bank, duly
completed and signed by two authorized officers, then it is handed over the
applicant and credit order is dispatched to drawee branch. Following are the pre-
requisites for the processing of DD:
Pay Order
For this kind of remittance the payer must have the account in the issuing bank.
Pay order are more liquid as compared to cheques because cheques may be
dishonored while PO cant be. It is written order issued by the bank drawn and
payable on itself. It is used for local transfer of money from one person to another
person. It is also used by the public for depositing money with Government or
Semi Government department.

6: Recommendation
6.1 Overall summary
The banking structure in Pakistan comprises of the following types, State Bank of
Pakistan, Commercial Bank of Pakistan; Exchange Banks, Saving banks, Cooperative
banks, specialized credit institutions. The state bank of Pakistan is the Central bank of
the country and was established on July 01, 1948. The network of bank branches now
covers a very large segment of national economy. 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. In 1956, MCB transferred its Registered office
to Karachi, where the Head Office is presently located. In April 1991, MCB became
Pakistans first privatized bank.
The corporate branch at Shahrah-e-Faisal Karachi (SFK) branch is the corporate
branch of MCB in Karachi. The bank is using SWIFT for transfer of information about

(35)
imports and exports. MCB SFK branch has Currently Following three
Departments General Banking Department, Advances Department & Foreign Exchange
Department.
To open an account the customer has to meet the general banking manager with
an introducer. The procedure begins with the punching of account opening form to the
customer file i.e. customers master file. Before closing any account, bank send letter to
the account hold for informing him that his account is going to be closed. There is need

an approval from higher authority to close any account. Current deposits are those
which are payable to bank whenever demanded by the customer. Bank does not pay
any profit on current deposits. The following are the financial products/services of MCB
Malay Mail Scheme, PLS Account, Saving 365 Account, Capital growth certificate
scheme, Fund Management Scheme, Khushali Bachat Account, Term/ Fixed Deposits
and others like night banking, credit cards, traveler cheques.
In remittance department like any other bank MCB also have instruments for
transferring of money, Telegraphic Transfer, Mail Transfer. In cash department both
deposits and withdrawals go side by side. This department works under the accounts
department and deals with cash deposits and payments. This department maintains the
following sheets, books, and ledger of account cash received voucher sheet.
Cash paid voucher sheet, Paying-in-slip, ChequeBook, Cash balance book. The
clearing in Karachi at MCB or other banks is being done through NIFT (National Institute
of Facilitation Technology).
Bank provides this facility to the people who need advance money to meet their
requirement. Party dealing with other banks financial condition of borrower business
and as a first step credit proposal is being made. MCB provides advances, which are
two types. Secured Advances, Unsecured Advances. MCB usually classified advances
in to following types Agricultural Advances, Commercial Advances
Industrial Advances. Commercial Advances are of following types
Demand Finance, Cash Finance, Foreign bills purchased, Finance against
imported goods, Finance against foreign bills, Export Refinance Part I (Pre Shipment) &
(36)
others. Banks Agriculture division deals with the agriculture advances. Bank
provides the Agriculture Advances in order to enhance and support the agriculture
sector of the country. Farm Credit & Non Farm Credit.
In foreign exchange, MCB is dealing Foreign Currency Accounts, Foreign
Remittances, and Foreign Bills for Collection, Imports & Exports
In a nut shell it can be concluded that the overall performance of the bank is quite
satisfactory. MCB's total assets, investments, deposits and equity has increased but

profitability has decreased by a soaring percentage of 58.23%. The reasons which I
have traced out of my analysis and studies are as follows;
Increased financial costs of funds for which expected investment revenues did
not open up.
Return on lending has been reduces
Bank has increased its classified advances by 35% to fulfill the requirements of
Prudential Regulations. The fresh increase is mainly 51% in the other assets
especially mentioned classification. According to the prudential regulations
requirements, accrued markup cannot be credited to income but to suspense
A/C.
During the year 2008, the economy of the country remained in sluggish. In spite
of various policy measure initiated by the government for confidence building of
the domestic and foreign investors and steps taken such as:
o Creation of small and medium entries development authority (SMEDA).
o Financing under prime minister's self employment scheme.
o Launching of Mera Ghar scheme etc.
o For revival of economy, the expected investment environment could not
be created and economy did not pick up.
The large number of non-commercial banking institutions (DFI's and NBFI's) also
competed for limited resources and investment avenues- thus further narrowing
the spread of banking industry.

(37)
6.2 GERNERAL OBSERVATION
Department should provide proper guide line to the students during learning about
their practical application in the field of business so that students becomes
familiar with business environment.
Our department must have developed close relations with reputed organizations
adequate help for management of internship can provided to the students.
The department should try to promote IBIT as a prestigious institute for clearing and
pay attention toward its promotion and advertisement in business sector.


The department should maintain a record of all its old students working in various
fields and present them as a source of motivation inspiration for the present students in
the department.

1. Practical field is quite different from theoretical knowledge. So an internee should
adopt himself / herself to know situation. He / she should be able to get firsthand
knowledge.
2. Have the quality of confidence.
3. Have a good communication.
4. Should be able to judge the situation.
5. Should have effort to doing best.
6. Have flexibility in opinion making.
7. It is golden rule for relaxation, satisfaction and success.

MCB bank limited is an attractive and suitable corporation for the internees as it
provides excellent learning opportunities to the students. Its culture is so inspiring and
working structure is so impressing that it motivates to work. All staff members are very
cooperative and helpful in providing guidance during internship. It is good place of
learning for future job.

(38)
1. MCB is and will positioned and flexible enough to operate effectively in the
changing scenario. We will continue to broaden our customer base, harnessing
the growing strength of the MCB brand and expand the platform to provide value
based propositions to our customers. Banking today has entered into a new era
of computer technology. With introduction to intern on line banking, the distance
between branches has reduced in such a way that a customer maintains his
account thousands of kilometers away. Branches avail full facilities from other
branches. This facility is very common in foreign banks. My observation is that
like many other sectors of banking MCB should also take a lead in this sector.

2. As discussed above, this is an age of computer technology and the banks having
skilled working (in computer technology) will certainly be able to attain a faster
growth rate. My suggestion is that MCB should stress upon its employees to
learn computer technology and following incentives should be given to them for
this purpose.
6.3 SWOT Analysis
STRENGTH
MCB is the first Pakistani privatized bank and because of its quality
management, marketing, innovation in products and services. Owing to all such factors
they have established a good reputation in the banking market. The name of MCB
makes you recall the highly cooperative and professional individuals ready to serve you
with maximum zeal and zest.

MCB have faster banking services that are making it more prominent in the
banking industry especially in operations and Foreign exchange. The customer prefers
this bank not only because of its faster speedy service rather due to reasonable service
charges.
MCB in Pakistan is the also in the list of highly automated banks like Emirates
because of its modern style of banking through fully computerized control and twenty
four hour banking.
(39)
The joining of experienced people, advanced management, advance setup and
facilities gave MCB an edge over its competitors.
WEAKNESSES

The majority of people are not well aware about the products of MCB. Therefore
it should advertise extensively especially RTC and Master Cards.
A behavior has been noted that bank tries to feel at ease with good looking, rich
and educated people and the poor looking customers feel some bit strange in the
environment of the bank. The bank employees should try to accommodate behaviorally
all type of customers.

In MCB there is lack of specialized skill because of job rotation policy of human
resource department. The bank should concentrate upon increasing its abilities on
individual service basis.


Mismanagement of time is another big mistake in MCB branches, the bank
official time of closing is 5:30pm but due mismanaging of time allocation and work the
staff is normally on their seats till 7:00 or 8:00 clock.

OPPORTUNITIES
As on December 31, 1998, sixty-eight scheduled banks with 9,106 branches are
operating in Pakistan. As on this date, total population of Pakistan is 140.03 million.
Total number of personal accounts with all scheduled banks as on December 31,1997,
are 28.98 million. If we consider the population statistics of working age group as on
December 31,1997, it stands to the figure of 96.64 million. Thus we can say those 28%
of working age people of Pakistan are having accounts with banks while 72% are
unbanked.


(40)
The need of privatization has made people to switch to banks to satisfy their
needs of lending and borrowing. This not only increases the deposits but also the credit
business.


THREATS
Change in government policies have affected the banking business. Still banks
have to wait to get permission of state bank. The freezing of foreign currency accounts
is a vital example of letting people not to trust on banks.

The Competition has become severe by the entrants of so many banks, So to
exist one will have to prove himself in its services through excellent management and
will have to satisfy its shareholders. Otherwise he will be out the market.

The decrease purchasing power of consumer in the current economic situation of
the country affecting the business activity speed too much and the result is the low
investment from the investors in new projects can create problem for the bank because
it is working a lot in trade.


7: Recommendation:
Bank must let potential customers know that all attractions for banking exist. This
is done by advertising on television and obtaining press coverage, in conjunction with
direct mail, window displays, leaflet in branches and in appropriate other locations (such
as hotels, shops, etc.) and including leaflets in statement of accounts sent to existing
customers in the hope that they will tell potential customers about the services provided
by our bank.
Financially unsophisticated people might feel bank accounts, cheque books,
credit cards, etc. are difficult to understand and to keep control thereof.

(41)
Some personal sector customers prefer not to come to branch. They
increasingly want to deal with the bank in other ways, such as home banking or use of
Automated Teller Machines (ATMs), which need to be at the branch or some important
shopping plazas.

It is widely known that there is a substantial Black Economy in Pakistan, Where
people earn income that is undisclosed to the revenues authorities. Payments for goods
and services in the black economy are necessarily in cash, because transactions by
cheques are more likely to be exposed to the revenue authorities. Some people will
therefore avoid bank accounts to preserve secrecy of earnings.

One way to retain the personal sector customers is to offer a wide range of
services such as tax advice, free life insurance equivalent to amount deposited, shares
portfolio management, fund management facility, etc., complimentary to the core
services. Banks must have a slightly different mix of services. Banks must have a
slightly different mix of services and mean of providing these such that customers can
choose the mix that suits them best.
Arguably, there has been a little encouragement from banks to persuade people
to open a bank account. Opening hours are restricted, and there is a commonly held
belief that banks operate for their convenience and not for the convenience of the
customers.
A logic leads to promotional campaign through employers who are customers of
the banks and their employees are paid in cash. Such business accounts should be
encouraged to open the accounts of their employees with the banks. It might be worth
offering free banking for a specific period to new accounts or simply publicizing the
services available by means of posters at the employers premises.
It might be possible to attract another type of personal customers through
business accounts, namely directors and denier employees, etc. Again an incentive
package could be put together.

(42)
The banks may choose to make its existing products distinctive or to introduce
new products. It is often easier to benefit from adverse changes made by other banks
than to attract customers by innovations.
A short term promotional technique is to offer price incentives, for example, low
interest rates on advances or limited issue high profit bearing term deposits. Longer
term, a Loss Leader may be offered. For example, profit bearing current accounts are
not very lucrative but any bank can not afford not to offer these. The reduced profits can
be augmented by profits made on other products.
It is also possible to attract/retain personal customers by investment in new
technology like ATMs and Telephone Banking facilities, which made the services
quicker, easier, cheaper and more flexible.
