Chapter 1:IntroductionTheoretical BackgroundAs being a financial organization, bank has to always deal with money. In modern age to run economy of a country, it is impossible to think without a bank. A bank is considered as a building of a capital, which is the key factor of the development of an economy.
The profit of a commercial bank depends primarily on the utilization of its fund. And the making of loan and advance is always profitable to a bank. As the bank mobilizes savings from the general people in the form of deposit, the most important task of it is to disburse the said deposit as loan or advance to the mass people for the development of commercial, industrial, who are in need of fund for investment. Credit enables a bank to proactively manage loan in order to bring a gloomy situation in the cost of fund.
Loan Default culture has started in Bangladesh mainly after the nationalization of banks. However, it was enhanced by the availability of huge amount of credit in the name of developing private and industrial sector. Industry set-up was shown as sick industry to get additional loan and relieve from interest.
Jamuna Bank Ltd. was established to provide term loan and other financial assistance to accelerate the pace of development to small industry of Bangladesh, is also prone to such disappointing features of problem loans. The report mainly focuses on the credit operating system, their credit policies and procedures of loan supervision and recovery, especially their classified loans.

Chapter 3:Job Responsibilities and ObservationI was assigned at the Shantinagar Branch of Jamuna Bank Limited to complete my internship program. During my three (3) months internship program I enjoyed the work at the bank but most importantly I learned how to work under pressure with great responsibilities. Throughout this time I have got the opportunity to work with different department of JamunaBank Limited. There are different departments in Shantinagar Branch and they are:
General Banking (GB)
Credit Department (CD)
Foreign Exchange Department (FED)
I worked at most 4 departments in the past 3 months. However, my main Concentration was Credit department and thereby, I allocated maximum time to work at credit department section.
The Nature of the jobs and my Specific ResponsibilitiesIn the first week of my joining, I worked some days at General Banking (GB) department. I had learned so many things as being working here. I had various responsibilities at GB:
Bring out the account opening books for the customers and verifying them,
Attaching and counting the voucher of GB
I have lookup the FD, DPS and old account opening forms
Open account for new customers and aid them in the process
Learn how to open FD and DPS for new customers
At most of the time of internship period, I worked at Credit Department (CR). There I have learned many of the banking terms. I have to perform below activities-
I have Print, type and do photocopy different documents related credit.
I sometimes organize all the customer files (e.g. car loan, home loan) ; keep them at a specific place separately.
Check and fill up various forms of loans
Entries data in the computer.
Show the clients that where to sign on the form.
Sometimes helps my supervisor balancing credit ; debit.
Besides working on Credit department, I have worked at Foreign Exchange Department. There I learned so many things. Such as:
Processing a new LC (Letter of Credit)
Matching the Voucher with the Supplementary
I also worked in Accounts Department (A/C) and there I had to count different salary amount of the employees worked at that branch. I also match the different amount of debit and credit voucher of accounts department.
ObservationWorking at Jamuna Bank Limited, Shantinagar Branch was a great experience for me. I have learnt many things from them. From my little knowledge what I have observed and some recommendations are as follows:
I have found it very much interesting to work at Jamuna Bank. The people with whose under supervision I was, was really very nice and talented. I have noticed and observed the followings during time of internship:
The Bank has a really good atmosphere to work at, and the officers and each and every people are very nice.
Employees are very active and sincere to their assigned job responsibilities
Work is never left pending for the next day unless it is absolutely necessary
The work process could be made faster with better computers and operating systems.
There is always a rush of customers so there is no standard on what the employees do throughout the day. The work activities of an employee is set, but what to do when varies along the day
The work activities are always set and divided for each of the employees. This is the way it should be, but when I saw it firsthand it was remarkable. Each and every employee has a certain set of responsibilities. I saw that each and every other staff members help each other.

Maturity of Loan and Advances
How Jamuna Bank recover their LoanWhen Jamuna Bank authorizes loans and advances to its customers, they clearly state the repayment pattern in the loan agreement. But some bond holders do not pay their loans in due period. The joint and private sector commercial banks have to face this sort of problems. This type of situation is also found in Jamuna Bank too. To overcome the problem of excess loan, the bank has taken some loan recovery programs.
Recovery Programs taken by Jamuna Bank Limited:
Establishing credit supervision and monitoring cell in the bank
Re-structuring the loan sanctioning and distributing policy of the bank
Sanction loans and advances against adequate securities as best as possible

Chapter: 5Recommendation & Conclusion
Jamuna Bank Limited is one of the well known banks in our country. As I was only for few days with the enjoyable working environment of the bank, it’s quite hard to give recommendation to such a well established bank. Still from my little learning and observation, I am giving following recommendation to follow:
Jamuna Bank needs to focus on loan and advance services. Jamuna Bank also needs to offer attractive packages to promote their loan and advance product.
Maximum amount of loan is provided to the stable industrial sectors. They intentionally ignore the agriculture sector because of riskiness and safety issues. But for the overall economic development of the country they should diversify their loans in agriculture sector.
Jamuna Bank doesn’t have much of ATM Booths. So they need to put more attention to build more ATM Booths.
The overdue loans should recover through adequate actions taken by govt. and there should be take necessary steps to give loans within a limit.
The credit culture which is new can be developed in place of the old culture or lending system. Interest rate of credit should increase.
Jamuna Bank offers 67.38% loan and advances to Dhaka District, whereas rest 7 is very poor to this site. So, Jamuna Bank should take a look at those rests of the districts.
Conclusion:Jamuna Bank is one of the leading commercial bank started its curriculum in 2001. It has already developed a good image among its clients by offering its excellent services by different divisions. Such kinds of success come from the faithful, assurance and dynamic leadership of the banks management over the periods. The working environment of Jamuna Bank Limited is very friendly.
In any bank, Credit division is one of the most favorable tools. Recently in Bangladesh loan taking and credit facilities are becoming one of the most engaging activities of a bank. But still lots improvements in services and facilities have to be made in this department.
Credit Division of Jamuna Bank provides a qualified service by its dedicated group of clients and officers. The officers of credit department always monitor the credit in different sectors and their position. Before providing the loan the officers analyze whether the loan will be profitable and whether the client is good enough to repay the loan within the given period of time.
The main competitive advantage of Jamuna Bank is that it has online banking where as other local commercial bank cannot yet achieve that advantage. All the commercial banks of Bangladesh are now trying to achieve this. In this bank as well as with the other facilities, the employees are highly motivated by their remunerations and other benefits. Here, all the employees are very much cooperative with their customers, colleagues and simply visitors.
