CHAPTER -1

INTRODUCTION OF THE REPORT


1.1 INTRODUCTION
This Internship report is aimed at studying and analyzing Habib Bank Limited (HBL)
in general and its branch office at Link Road Abbottabad in particular. The main
purpose of internship is to prepare and submit a report as a partial fulfillment for the
award of M.com degree from Government College of Management Sciences
Abbottabad.
1.2 Background of Study:
Pakistans economy by the Grace of God is growing with an appreciable rate. Sound
banking system for this growing economy is the need of the day, which must meet the
financial needs of the growing agriculture, industrial and commercial/services sector.
Habib Bank Limited has played a pivotal role in the development of Pakistan. HBL
has adopted a customer-oriented approach, in order to provide quality products
according to customer needs and stands as a role model for the other banks. In this
report I have tried to cover all the aspects of HBL banking operations.
1.3 Purpose of study:
Basic purpose of working in this organization was to fulfill the requirement of my
course i.e. because its a compulsory part of it. Secondly, it was the banking sector
that attracts me and I was keen to gain some knowledge about this sector. Moreover, I
studied about the functioning of this particular branch, so I got some idea about the
corporate and commercial branches. I worked with the intentions to point out the
strengths and weaknesses of the bank in accordance with foreign banks. Besides this,
some other purpose are associated which includes:

To give a comprehensive review of HBL.

To analyze HBLs organizational, financial and other aspects.

To identify the areas of the bank where there is some room for improvement.

To present some feasible solutions for the problems pertaining to HBL

To apply the knowledge gained in practical field.

1.4 Scope of Work:


I was provided with the opportunity to work in all the departments, so I got an
overview of each of them. Banking has a very broad scope. In only eight weeks of
internship, it is very difficult to understand each and every aspects of bank . Due to
the barriers of limited time and space, the scope of work is usually confined. However
this study of HBL will help the management to identify their weaknesses and threats
and over come them by using their strength and capitalizing on the opportunities. This
internship report will be source of financial data for all those who are interested in
financial statement analysis of HBL.
1.5 Methodology of the Report
This study involves two types of data for report writing.
1.5.1 Primary Sources
Interviews and discussion with staff members
Personal observations
1.5.2 Secondary Sources
Previous Internship Reports
Annual reports of HBL
Websites
Newspapers, Brochures & Manuals
1.6 Limitations of the Report
As mentioned earlier, eight weeks of time is very limited for a complete observation
of an institution like HBL. Moreover some of the data was confidential and was not
made available to me. Sometimes due to the busy schedule of the bank, complete
information regarding different activities was not provided in time. Latest annual
report for fiscal year 2011-2012 was not available for analysis.

CHAPTER- 02
INTRODUCTION TO HABIB BANK LIMITED
2.1 Evolution of Banking
Consensus on the organization of word Bank has not yet reached. According to some
authors this word is derived from the words Bancus or Banque that mean a bench. The
explanation of this origin is attributed to the fact that the jews in Lambard transacted
the business of money exchange on benches in the market place, and when the
business failed, public destroyed the Banco. Incidentally the word bankrupt is said to
have been evolved from this practice. The opponents of this opinion argue that if it
was so, then how is it that the Italian money changers were never called Banchierei in
the middle ages ?
Others authorities hold the opinion that the word Bank is derived from the German
word Back was Italianized into Bank. It is therefore, not possible to decide as to
which of the opinion is correct, for no record is available to ascertain the validity of
any of the opinion .

2.1.1 Early Growth


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. The origin of banking is also
traced to early goldsmiths. They used to keep strong safes for storing the money and
valuables of the people. The goldsmiths used to issue receipts for the money and other
valuable assets deposited with them. These receipts could be used for settlement of
transactions because people had confidence in the integrity and solvency of
goldsmiths. When it was found that these receipts were fully accepted in payment of
debts; then the receipts were drawn in such a way that it entitled any holder to claim
the specified amount of money from goldsmiths. A depositor who is to make the
payments may now get the money in cash from goldsmiths or pay over the receipt to
the creditor. These receipts were the earlier bank notes. The second stage in the
development of banking thus was the issue of bank notes.

2.2 Banking in Pakistan


I observed during my internship was that I came to known the historical
background of Banking & Financial sector and its improvement and growth
since the formation of Pakistan.
At the time of partition there were only 631 bank branches in area which came
under Pakistani control. But due to blood shed and violence at large scale,
most of the branches were closed. At that time 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.
Thus some drastic steps were taken in government sector for the improvement
of overall position. The private sector also responded positively. Some of the
steps taken by the government in this regard were as under:

Inauguration of State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) on 1st July, 1948.

Setting up of National Bank of Pakistan in November.

Banking Companies Ordinance 1962 for protection and guidance to


banks.

Establishment of specialized banks, such as ADBP (1952);


o

HBFC (Nov, 1952)

P1CIC (Oct, 1957)

IDBP (Aug. 1961)

NDFC (Jan, 1973)

In 1990 the government decided to denationalize all the nationalized institutes.


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- privatized banks are;

HBL taken up by a private group in April, 1991

ABL taken up by its own employees in September, 1991.

UBL taken up by UAE party in 2002.

December 29, 2003 HBL was taken by AKFED

2.3 Introduction of HBL

2.4 History of Banking In Pakistan


The partition plan was announced on June 3, 1947 and August 15, 1949 was fixed as
the date on which independence was to take effect. It was decided that the Reserve
bank of India should continue to function in the dominion of Pakistan until September
30, 1948 due to administrative and technical difficulties involved in immediately
establishing and operating a Central Bank.
At the time of partition, total number of banks in Pakistan were 38 out of these the
commercial banks in Pakistan were 2, which were Habib Bank Limited and Australia
Bank of India. The total deposits in Pakistani banks stood at Rs.880 million whereas
the advances were Rs.198 million. The Governor General of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali
Jinnah issued the order for the establishment of State Bank of Pakistan on 1st of July
1948.
In 1949, National Bank of Pakistan was established. It started with six offices in
former East Pakistan. There were 14 Pakistani scheduled commercial banks operating
in the country on December 1973. The Pakistan Banking Council prepared banks
amalgamation schemes in 1974 for amalgamation of smaller banks with the five
bigger banks of the country. These five banks are as under:
1.

National Bank of Pakistan


6

2.

Habib Bank Limited

3.

United Bank Limited

4.

Muslim Commercial Bank Limited

5.

Allied Bank Limited

In early 90s after the failure of nationalization policy, Government went for
privatization of financial institution. In last ten to fifteen years banking sector in
Pakistan has shown tremendous growth. Due to its remarkable growth, banking sector
of Pakistan has become very attractive for foreign investors. Many investors have
already invested and still many more to come.
2.5 History Of HBL
Habib Bank Limited was established by Mr. Ismail Habib on August 25, 1942 on the
desire of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, father of the nation. It was
established with paid up capital of Rs. 2.5 million. It was the first Muslim bank of sub
continent. Quaid-e-Azam first of all opened his personal account.
The first branch of HBL started functioning on 30th August, 1942 at Muhammad Ali
Road Bombay, In 1942, on the desire of Quaid-e-Azam, Habib family migrated to
Pakistan and later on shifted the Bank's Head Office from Bombay to Karachi on 7 th
August, 1947 just one week prior to independence, to play its pivotal role in the
development of this newly born country.
At the time of independence, the areas which now constitute Pakistan were producing
only agricultural products raw material for indo-Pak subcontinent. Partially no
industries were there to process the raw material; therefore the raw material was
exported from Pakistan. There were 19 non-Indian foreign Banks which were engaged
in the export of crops from Pakistan with only two Pakistani Banks i.e. HBL and the
Australia Bank. The circumstances were completely un-certain. The confidence of the
people had been shaken by the un-friendly environment and till the time peace had not
been restored, people would naturally have been interested in other things. The nation
was quite young with extreme scarcity of resources and these definitely added to the
difficulties of the govt., to run its own Banking system immediately.

Following the announcement of the independence plan in June, 1947, the Hindus
residing in the territories now comprising Pakistan started transferring their assets to
India and vice versa. The Banks included those having their registered
Offices in Pakistan, transferred them to India in order to bring a total collapse of the
new state. It had been decided that the Reserve Bank of India would continue to
function in Pakistan so that the problem of demand and time liabilities, coinage,
currencies, exchange rate etc be settled between India and Pakistan and the Indian
Notes would continue to be legal tender in Pakistan till 30 th September, 1948. Again
due to certain differences between Indian Pakistan, the
India government withheld Pakistan's share of Rs.75 core in forward and subscribed
heavily to the government of Pakistan to the tide over the crises.
At a time when this newly born country was at whirlwind of crises, it was HBL which
fulfilled generously the financial needs of all its sectors, paid salaries to the
employees of all Govt. departments, helped in the establishment of State Bank of
Pakistan which the Quaid-e-Azam inaugurated on July 1 st, 1948. HBL after partition
opened its branches tFinanceoughout Pakistan to provide finance and other facilities
to the business community. In association with HBL, the Govt. sponsored Pakistan
Finance Corporation Limited for financing of cotton. The Bank helped handsomely in
the construction of WARSAK DAM PROJECT, WAPDA, & K.D.A. by provided
finance and other facilities.

CHAPTER 03
HABIB BANK STRUCTURE, PRODUCTS, SERVICES
AND DEPARTMENT
3.1 Structure of HBL
At the present the Bank operates tFinanceough one central and 23 Regional Offices
and 1439 branches, all over Pakistan. The president and Executive Committee look
after the affairs of the Bank. Each Regional Head Quarter is headed by a Chief
Executive and assisted by General Manager Operations and General Manager Support
Services. The Regional Head Quarter controls the branches in their area.
Overseas operations consist of 65 main branches, two affiliates, two representative
offices and two subsidiaries.
President, from Head Office at Karachi controls the officers of the Bank with the help
of the senior management. Functional responsibilities of the Banks are broken into
seven groups known as
1)

International Operations Group

2)

Corporate Banking and Treasury Investment Group

3)

Retail Banking and Operation Group

4)

Assets Remedial and Administration Group

5)

Assets Remedial Management Group

6)

Credit Policy Group

7)

Corporate Bank, Financial Institutions and Project Finance Group

In addition to the overall controlling authority, president also manages the


international Operations Group individually.
While the Senior Executive Vice President supervise rest of the financial
groups. Each Senior Executive Vice President is individually responsible
for the group which is assigned to him. At the level of provinces there are
Regional Head Quarters headed by Regional Chief Executives (RCE).
20

Each RCE is assisted by GM operations and GM Support Services.


Branches are also controlled by the RCEs. Circle Offices of the past
times have been removed to reduce Managerial Layers, which were
working under the control of Zonal Offices. This Happened as a result of
policy of beginning new changes in the organizational structure.

3.2 Analysis Of Organizational Structure

The purpose of an organizational structure is to help in creating an environment for


human performance. It is then, a management tool and not an end in its own.
Although the structure must define the task to be done, the rules so established must
also be designed in the light of abilities and motivation of the human recourse
available. By analyzing the organizational structure of HBL presence of the following
elements can be found in its structure.
3.3 Centralized Decision Making
By looking at the organizational structure of HBL would be found that the structure at
HBL is a critical one. All the decisions are made at the top management level and the
subordinates have to obey these decisions. This trend in the decision making shows a
pattern of rigidity in structure of HBL.
3.4 Downward Communication
Communication is the process by which information is exchanged and understood by
two or more people, usually with the interest to motivate or in influence the behavior
of others in the organization. Downward communication is the message and
information sent from top management to subordinates in a downward direction.
Managers can communicate downward to the employees tFinanceough speeches,
messages can communicate downward to the employees tFinanceough speeches
messages in company publications, information leaflets, tucked into pay envelops
material on bulletin boards, policy and procedures mandates. The same pattern is
21

followed at HBL. No doubt its a very traditional approach but it can create problems
because it ignores the receiver of the communication because the issuer of policies
and procedures does not ensure communication. In reality may the message
communicated downward are not understood perfectly.

The chain of command is an unbroken line of authority that links all persons in an
organization and shows who reports to whom. By analyzing the organizational
structure it can be found that there is a scalar principle followed with in the Bank
because each and every person knows to whom can one report. The authority and
responsibility for different tasks and duties are different, as well as every one knows
the successive levels of management all the way to the top.
3.7Authorities and Responsibilites
The chain of command illustrates the authority structure of HBL. Authority is the
formal and lefitimate right of the manager to make decision, issue orders and allocates
resources to achieve organizational desired out comes. By the analyzing the chain of
command of HBL, one can come to the conclusion that, as there is scalar pattern
followed at the organizational setup of HBL therefore it is implied that everyone in his
position knows that what is ones authority and what is the responsibility and the
authority it allocated.
3.8 Delegation
Delegation is the process, which managers use to transfer the authority and
responsibility to position below in the hierarchy. Most organizations today encourage
managers to delegate authority to the lowest possible level to provide maximum
flexibility to meet customer needs and adapts to the environment. But at HBL no

that he may be asked to expand credit. He first satisfies himself that the ability
is such as to defend assurance. This information is obtained from personal

goods to and competitors of the borrower. If all this information is satisfactory,

operational staff.
There is also over staffing in HBL moreover inefficient individuals are in
credit card department.
There is huge difference in approaches of experienced staff & young staff
Imported upper level management
Experienced staff is frustrated mainly because of two reasons
Salaries have not been revised from last 10 years
Experienced Habibians are neither satisfied by the privatization
of bank nor they were taken into confidence at that times

4.4 Ratio Analysis

Liquidity Ratios

In graphs 2014should be near origin. Round the figures upto 2 decimal


places
You need to provide complete working of the ratios. You are required to
carefully study the table regarding maturities of assets and liabilities. Where
you can easily find the current and long term part of assets and liabilities.
Assets and liabilities having upto 1 year maturity are considered as current
assets and current liabilities. This table is given in the annual report of the
selected bank. You need to re-calculate the current and long-term parts of
assets and liabilities according to this table.
The liquidity of a firm is measured by its ability to satisfy its short term
obligations as they come due.

where customers can safely keep their money as long as they want.
In SWOT analysis the best strategies accomplish in organizations mission by:

their own.
HBL has got a reliable and easy to use internal computer system. HBL
maintained its data properly.
HBL has very good security system.

83

HBL has opened all its branches at commercial areas so that the customers or
clients face no problems in reaching to the bank.
The band is always on the look to improve its services both to the domestic as
well as overseas customers.

Inconsistency in efficiency and working atmosphere due to the largest of
branches.
Sense of insecurity in the employees serving at low profitable branches due to
the downsizing.

During my internship, I have realized that habib bank is vast system and spread its
networking all over the world and performing very well. It is difficult to give
suggestion about improving condition of habib bank.

So, I will few suggestions to habib bank which are given below:
v

Bank must introduce online system all over the world.

Bank has different schemes which should express to the required

customer so that
They are introduced reasonable shares in the market.

Bank should provide interest free loan to the scholar students for their

encouragement.
v

Habib bank should introduced computerize system in all branches.

TFinanceough it, bank can increase more efficiency in the work than without
it.

Habib bank should create plan for opening a customer account with bank

where he could easily know about the procedure of filling forms or cheque of
new accounts. It saves a lot of times of banks and staff who perform it.

Habib bank should increase communication with customer so that they

could more establish public relation and expand its growth.

Habib bank must introduce marketing programs for the clients so that they

could easily know about the market development of bank because it is


problem for clients that he has no idea for usage of new marketing term.

88

Bank should have same behavior with the customer. Bank should not

adopt such a behavior which creates problems between the customer and
banker. For example, bank show good behavior with very close person and
bad behavior show with other person. It is not good position for the banking
growth.
