Soneri Bank is a commercial bank, in modern time commercial banks play a very important role and their

functions are manifold. But main functions are as follows: Accepting various types of deposits Granting loans and advances Undertaking of agency services and also general utility functions, few of those are as under: Collecting cheques and bill of exchange for the customers. Collecting interest due, dividend, pensions and other sum due to customers. Transfer of money from place to place. Acting an executor, trustee or attorney for the customers.

Issuing of travelers cheques and letters of credit to give credit facilities to travel.

Accepting bills of exchange on behalf of customers. Undertaking foreign exchange business. Furnishing trade information and tendering advice to customers.


For swift functioning of various branches of the bank, each branch has been divided in different departments. These departments handle different jobs so that division of work is there for improvement of functions and also it is easy to control the situation. The general division in a branch is as follows: 1. Cash department

2. Deposit department 3. Advances & credit department 4. Remittance department 5. Foreign exchange department 6. Technology department (new addition in order to cop with the growing needs of day to day technology requirements). The workings of each of the above mentioned departments are discussed as follows in order to clarify the functions being performed by the individual departments.


The following books are maintained in the Cash Department: 1) Receiving Cashier Bank

2) Paying Cashier Book 3) Token Book 4) Scroll Book 5) Cash Balance Book When cash is received in counter, it is entered in the Scroll Book and Receiving Cashier Book. At the close of the day, these are balanced with each other. When the cheque or any negotiable instrument is presented at counter for payment, it is entered in the token book and token is issued to the customer. The token clerk and the Cashier make entries in the paying book and payment is made to payee. At the close of day, the Token Book and Paying Cashier Book are balanced. The consolidated figure of receipt and payment of cash is entered in the cash balance book and drawn closing balance of cash.
Opening Balance + Receipts - Payments = Closing Balance

This is a very important department because cash is the most liquid asset and mostly frauds are made in this department, therefore, extra care is taken in this department and nobody is allowed to enter or leave the area freely. Mostly, cash area is grilled and its door is under supervision of the head of that

department. All the books maintained department are checked by an officer.




Bank deals in money and they are merely mobilizing funds within the economy. They borrow from one person and lend to another, the difference between the rate of borrowing lending forms their spread or gross profit. Therefore we can rightly state that deposits are the blood of the bank which causes the body of the institution to get to work. These deposits are liability of the bank so from point of view of bank we can refer to them as liabilities. The total deposits of Soneri Bank are growing since its inauguration. The increase in deposits is also a cause of increase on total number of accounts; bank has progressed in both aspects.

Deposits can be segregated on two bases, one is the duration in which there funds are expected to be with

the bank and second is the cost of getting these funds. So divide deposits in two classes according to duration of deposits i.e. Time deposits/liabilities Demand deposits/liabilities And on the basis of the cost to acquire these funds, a deposit can be classified as any one of following four, High cost Medium cost Low cost No cost Banks have different kinds of deposit schemes in order to induce deposits. These schemes are a mixture of the above mentioned two types of deposits with an addition of different services & requirements such as minimum balance requirement, mode of transaction, basis for calculation of profit, deductions, additional benefits, eligibility for different groups. Soneri bank has a large variety of deposit schemes which have been discussed in the following pages.

The current account may be opened by any member of the public, entities, corporate or otherwise. The request for opening an account must be made on Banks standard account opening request form with a suitable introduction acceptable to the bank. The account holder can withdraw and deposit money at his/her own discretion, these transactions have no limitations. being There are no limitations to the amount or withdrawal. There is no deposited

requirement of minimum balance maintenance. No profit is paid by the bank and no service charges are deducted by the bank on current deposits account. These types of deposits are also exempt from compulsory deduction of Zakat.

PLS saving bank account can only be opened after proper introduction of the account holder which is acceptable by the bank. This type of account is for those persons who want to make small savings. This type of account is opened with a minimum deposit of Rs.100/-. The account may be opened in the name of the individuals (in single or joint names) minors (to be

operated by the guardian) charitable institutions, provident fund and other funds of benevolent nature, local bodies, autonomous corporations, limited companies, firms, associations, educations institutions etc. Not more than one account maybe opened in any one name but this does not prevent a person for opening more than one account in his or her name for more than one minor child. All sums to the credit of an account should be accompanied by pay-in-slip showing the name and number of the account. The entry of the transaction will be verified by the signatures of an official of the bank, on the counterfoil of the pay-in-slip. Account holder can only withdraw sums from his account by means of cheques supplied to him by the Bank for that particular account. Post dated and stale cheques are not paid. Withdrawals from PLS account are allowed not oftener than 8 times in a calendar month and for a total amount not exceeding Rs. 15,000/-. For withdrawals of larger amounts, 7 days notice in writing is required to be given.

The bank would be within its rights to make investment of credit balances/deposits in the PLS savings account in any manner at its sole discretion and to make use of the funds to the best of its judgment in the banking business under the PLS system. Calculation of products on PLS savings bank accounts will be made for each calendar month on the lowest credit balance in an account between the close of business on the 6th day and the last day of the month. If however the balance is less than Rs. 1000/the product will be nil. There are some features of the Soneri PLS Account which are different from that of a PLS Savings Account. The Soneri PLS Account makes payments of return on a monthly basis where as the interest on the amount invested is calculated on a daily basis. Whereas the PLS account makes payment only twice a year that is in the month of June and end of December. Following are the interest rates offered by the two savings account.

Deposits Category PLS Savings Account PLS Soneri Savings Account Upto Rs. 1.0 million Over Rs. 1.0 million to 20.0 million Over Rs. 20.0 million to 100.0 million

(% per annum) 2.00

1.25 1.75 2.50


Under this deposit scheme, a deposit is received from the depositor under the condition that he will intimate the bank before a certain period in case of withdrawals. There are two types of notice deposits they are 7 days and 30 days notice deposits. The profit is paid on these deposits but it is nearly equivalent to saving account rate. Following are the profits paid by Soneri Bank on Notice Deposits.
Notice Deposits 7 days 30 days % per annum 1.50 2.00


This is a type of term deposit in which a receipt is issued for varying tenors ranging from 1 month to 5 years or more. These are in the form of receipts and profit on these receipts is paid biannually. These receipts are en-cashable after expiry of the period for which they were issued. Different profit rates are applied to different type of term deposits.

Term Deposits 1 month 3 months 6 months 1 year 2 years 3 years 4 years 5 years

% per annum 2.00 2.25 2.50 3.00 3.25 3.50 3.75 4.00


Advances are the most important source of earning for the banks. Soneri Bank is also giving full attention towards this aspect and it is also obvious from the growing portfolio of advances and from very low delinquency rate. The credit portfolio of this institution is in a very much better shape than other financial institutions of Pakistan and the credit goes to the management and the staff who are concerned about the quantity and quality as well.

The foreign banks have a competitive edge over all local banks in their technological advancements are automated systems. Local banks have also realized the gravity of this situation and are striving to add computerized systems to their branches. Soneri Bank is ahead of all other local banks in this field and now it is in a position to even compete with foreign banks. Almost all the branches of big cities are computerized; therefore, the need for a technology department at each branch is growing. Now a day, a computer division is working in each city to provide service to all the branches of that area.


The process of opening a new account is managed by the deposit department. It is also responsible for the payment of profit and accounting of all types of deposit schemes. Account opening is an agreement in which customer offers his funds and bank accepts these funds, therefore the nature of relation between a banker and customer the parties. A person, who wants to open any kind of account, has to fill in a printed form which is provided by the bank, free of cost. Separate account opening forms are used for different types of accounts. is contractual and all the conditions applicable to this contract act are applicable to both

Bank usually requires that new depositor must be introduced by some one. An introducer can be any person known to the bank but preferably it should be a customer of the bank. However, the manager can open the account by his own introduction. If the manager is satisfied, he will obtain the full signature of the customer on the form and specimen signature card, makes the first deposit, and issues the cheque book. The following are given to the customers: Pay-in-slip is the proof of deposit. For every payment which is to be deposited in the bank, the pay-in-slip is to be filled up. The object of this book is to provide the customer with the bank's acknowledgment for receipt of money to be credited this account. Cheque Book contains a number of cheques. It enables a customer to make withdrawal from this account or make payment to various parties by issue of cheque. Pass Book is a copy of the customer's accounts as appears in the bills of the bank. Balance is recorded in this book by the Clerk.

Note: In case of partnership account partnership deed should be attached. In case of companies memorandum and article of association, certificate of incorporation, certificates for commencement of business, list of directors and board resolution for opening of account is also obtained from the customer. Accounts of Trusts, Executors & Administrators can also be opened but with the prior approval of the Head Office.


Profit payment and calculation is done in accordance with the rules of each type of deposit scheme are calculated separately and added till the end of 6 month period. Then the sum total of these products is multiplied with the respective profit rates which are

issued by the Head Office at the end of each half yearly closing. The profit provisions for each type of deposits are also calculated on monthly basis by the same department in order to calculate the net profit or loss position of the branch. Accounting entries are also made in the respective books of account by this department. However, in small and medium size branches, the accountant performs the book keeping duties for all kinds of ledgers.

Analysis: This ratio is an efficiency and profitability ratio. It

determines how well the management and staff have been able to keep growth of revenues ahead of rising costs. The ratio particularly measures how large a spread between interest revenues and interest costs management has been able to achieve by close control over the banks earning assets and the pursuit of the cheapest source of funding. As compared to the proceeding year the net interest margin has declined from 8.2% to 7.3%. This is basically due to the large number of increase in the total assets as compared to the increase in the spread of interest revenues and interest incomes which implies less profitability for the bank in the year 2006 as compared to the year 2005.

4. Net Non Interest Margin

Analysis: The spread measure the earning efficiency with

which a bank is managed. The spread measures the effectiveness of the banks intermediation function in borrowing and lending money and also the intensity of competition in the banks market area. As competition increases in the banks market area the difference between the average assets yields and average liability cost tends to decline. The spread for Soneri has fallen in 2006 to 2.895 from 3.130 from the proceeding year which implies that the bank has to find other ways to make up for the eroding earnings spread.

Concentrate on financing of all types of sectors:

Soneri bank is lacking in targeting all types of sectors, they should finance everything from a house to its furniture, only than it would produce true value for its

money, and would be able to meet its costs. They should also look in to small sectors and the low income group as they are the ones who would readily agree to get a television or sofa set financed.
Car financing:

Although Soneri bank has a department concerned with car financing, but not enough effort is put forward by the bank in this department. As car financing rates have declined in the preceding years the bank should focus on capturing this market. This could help the bank for achieving better prospects in the future.

Concentrate on Small Businesses:

As business scenario in Pakistan has improved in the last couple of years the bank should focus its marketing activities on capturing the small businesses for lending their financing services.
Promote Credit Cards:

Increase the number of branches:

The competition in the banking sector has increased over the last couple of years. In order to compete with

growing competition the bank should increase the number of branches nationally and regionally.
