There are various views about the origin of the word Bank. One view is that it is derived from an Italian word banque which means bench the other point of view is that it has originated from the German word bancus which means a joint stock firm. As regards the growth of modern commercial bank, it can be traced to as early as 600BC, G Crowther in his famous book, an outline of Money has traced the history of modern English commercial banking. According to him, the present day banker has three ancestors; (1) the merchants (2) the goldsmiths and (3) the money lenders. The Merchants. The earliest stage in the growth of banking can be traced to the working of merchants. These merchants were traders in commodities. The trading activities were carried on by them from one place to another, it was risky for the traders to carry metallic money with themselves for payment. The traders with high reputation began to issue receipt which were accepted as titles of money. These receipt or letters of transfers also called hundi in indo Sub Continent were the

Internship Report on Muslim Commercial Bank. (Khwaza khela Branch Swat)

first mode of payments. The merchant banking thus forms the earliest stage in the evaluation of modern banking The Goldsmiths. The second stage in the growth of banking is normally traced to earlier goldsmiths. These goldsmiths also called Seths in India used to receive gold and silver for sage custody. The goldsmiths began to issue receipts for the metallic money (gold and silver) kept with them. These receipt with the passage of time a medium of exchange and a mean of payment. The goldsmiths, thus can rightly be termed as the forerunners of the modern bank note. The Money Lenders. The third stage in the development of banking arose when the goldsmiths became the money lenders. By experience the goldsmiths (who were called money lenders) came to know that they could keep a small proportion of the total deposits for meeting the demand of customers of cash and the rest they could easily lend. They allowed the depositors to drew over and above the money actually standing to their credit.


It is said that the first bank was established in Barcelona in Spain. Another statement tells that Venice and Genoa was the hub of financial transactions and the first bank was founded there in 14 th century. The first public bank that was formed was in Germany in later part of the time. The first central bank was formed in Geneva in 1578. bank of England was established in 1694. the modern commercial banking system actually developed in the nineteenth century.

In 1918 eleven clearing banks of today came into being. The effect of this historical development of banking in England has been fairly wide. Initially the emergence of a small number of banks with wide network of branches. Second, increase in the popularity of bank accounts and a large-scale use of checques. In 1946, the labor government nationalized the bank of England and transferred the existing stock to the nominee of British treasury. In 1955, the British Banks made a departure from traditional banking by undertaking hire-purchase finance for companies buying industrial plants and machinery and took interest on hire-purchase finance.



Before the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947, branches of British banks dominated banking in sub-continent. The first domestic banking institutions emerged in the 1940, immediately after Pakistan's independence from Britain. These institutions include the Australasia Bank (today, Allied Bank Limited), Habib Bank Limited, Muslim Commercial Bank, and the National Bank of Pakistan (NBP). The NBP was wholly owned by the government but prominent merchant families established the other three. On August 14, 1947 by an order called Monetary system and reserve order 1947 the main provisions of the Monetary system and reserve order 1947 were as follows (i) (ii) (iii) The reserve bank of India would be the sole currency note issuing authority in Pakistan till September 30, 1948. The Indian currency notes will remain legal tender in both Pakistan and India until September, 30, 1948. The reserve bank of India would transfer the assets of value equal to Pakistani currency to the government of Pakistan after September,30 1948.

Internship Report on Muslim Commercial Bank. (Khwaza khela Branch Swat)


The government of Pakistan would also issue coins in the country after September 30, 1948. The coins issued by the government of India would remain legal tender in Pakistan for at least one year form the date of issue of Pakistani coins.

The Reserve bank of India would perform the full functions of central bank in Pakistan up to September 30, 1948.On 1st July 1948, the SBP was formed. From 1960 to 1970, a number of specialized development finance institutions (DFIs) such as Industrial Development Bank of Pakistan and the Agricultural Bank emerged. These DFIs were either controlled directly by the state or through the SBP, and were intended to concentrate on lending to long-term projects in specific priority sectors.


Muslim Commercial Bank (MCB) unfolds 62 years of growth. MCB is not an overnight success story. The bank started corporate life in Calcutta on July 9, 1947. After the partition of the Indo-Pak Subcontinent, the bank moved to Dhaka from where it commenced business in August 1948. In 1956, the Bank transferred its registered office to Karachi, where the Head Office is presently located. Thus, the bank inherits a 62-years legacy of trust in its customers and the citizens of Pakistan. 2.4.1 Nationalization In 1974 the Government felt a harsh need of nationalization of banks and financial institutions and nationalization act was introduced. Under this act MCB was the first bank, which was nationalized. In the same

Internship Report on Muslim Commercial Bank. (Khwaza khela Branch Swat)

year Premier Bank was merged with MCB and it started work as a government bank. This nationalization affected the bank badly. 2.4.2 Privatization

All the financial institutions and banks did not show good performance after nationalization, and again the government felt a big need to privatize these banks. In 1991 the bank was privatize during Nawaz Sharifs government. The government of Pakistan transferred the management of the bank to National group, one of the leading groups in the field of business. They were sold 25% shares. Now this group is having 50% of the total shares. Government is having 25% shares and general public is also having the same shares.

Analysis of an organization discovers its potential areas of improvement and evaluates its performance of the past period. It identifies the possible solutions to problems faced inside the bank and gives an insight of the opportunities which can be exploited to reap benefits. Financial Analysis The financial analysis is based on the national performance of MCB. The different Ratios calculations (figures) have been taken from the annual audited balance sheet for the year ended December 30, 2011.



Financial analysis of an organization expresses the performance of the bank for over a period of time. Different ratios analyze the banks capabilities. Varied relations are drawn on the basis of this analysis. Financial ratios have their own importance in analyzing the organizations performance. An increase or decrease in one ratio does not mean anything good or bad. It is always linked to another one that

Internship Report on Muslim Commercial Bank. (Khwaza khela Branch Swat)


is more important. Considering the example of higher interest, if the bank wants to have most of the deposits of the market, it has to offer higher interest rates. This would bring the deposits, thus deposits will increase, but on the other hand it will have to pay higher interest as well, thus decreasing the profit ratio. Relativity is the prime factor in evaluation of ratios. The financial ratios of the MCB reflect that the banks deposits have increased and it has also increased the profits. Advances have been made which have resulted in the fall of cash. The overall financial position shows that the bank is growing and is on upward direction in profitability as well. The financial Analysis is as follows. Different values come out from the calculations for year ended 2011. 5.1.1 LIQUIDITY RATIOS Capital Ratio Current Assets-current Liabilities

Since the name and icon of MCB stands for sign of trust and reputation that is why the number of customers of MCB is growing day by day. Analyzing the banks performance in several departments and evaluating the strengths and weaknesses leads to some proposals. There are certain rooms of improvement which has been found during the period of internship.


There Are Always Long Queues On The Cash Counter.

In MCB Khwaza khela branch there are long lines from the very beginning of day. At the cash counter the customers are some times starts to speak harsh wording due to the turning of numbers of each customers.


The Attitude Of Employees Is Not Customers

In marketing it said that the customer is the king, and must be obeyed. But this concept is not used in the branch, the staff of the branch do not know any thing about the value of customer, however only the customers having huge balance is given the due attention.


No Proper Setting Arrangement For Customers.

The setting arrangement is important for both the employees and for the customers as well. Often it was visible that during peak banking hours many customers use to stand anywhere they wanted to. This creates stress for the employees as well as for the customers.

Internship Report on Muslim Commercial Bank. (Khwaza khela Branch Swat)



Technology Incorporated Is Not Up To Date.

Technology plays a crucial role in the present age, the technology used in the branch is not up to date the employees still working on the old computers, the internet connection which is used for the online transaction is the old dial up connection, which should be the Digital Subscriber Line (DSL).


Insufficient Staff.

Another serious problem at the branch is the scarcity of staff, the staff working in the branch is enough as compare to any other branch but if we glance over the number of customers and the location of branch the staff is scare.


No Formal Training And Development Program.

The MCB claims of training and educating its employees but practically speaking it should initiate a good employee training and development plan. This would help employees to know more about their specific job and its actual requirements.


Employees Are Given Hard Targets.

Targets which are given to the employees should be in such a way that it can be accessible, but normally it has been observed that hard targets are given to the employees and are asked to be achieve in a short span of time.

8. Whole Concentration Is On The Upper Class Customers Only.

The whole concentration of the staff remains on the customers having huge amount of balance, while the customers having less amount in their accounts are neglected.

9. Employees Are Over Loaded.

Internship Report on Muslim Commercial Bank. (Khwaza khela Branch Swat)


The employees of the entire working department in the branch are over loaded, even any employee can not take a leave of a single day. 10. (ICU). In MCB the employees are tortured by the unit, if the member of the unit finds any error in the working of any employee, the employee is given a charge sheet, and is asked for explanation, and after that the case is hand over to the enquiry committee for further procedure, so this is a long way process and creates unrest among employees. Advice is seldom welcome and those who want it the most always like it the least Recommendations suggest improvements in areas which have room for polishing and progress. Criticizing several factors at MCB Khwaza khela Branch does not mean that these aspects are permanent flaws of the branch. Instead, it is intended that these mistakes be removed. For the confiscation of these errors, certain recommendations are forwarded. Employees Are Tortured By The Internal Control Unit


The long queues at cash counter give an awkward look. This problem can be solved by using the Queuing Model concept. These models are proposed to facilitate organizations control waiting lines. Through this approach, the bank can decide the best possible number of checkout stands. The number of checkouts should balance personnel cost and customer waiting time.


The bank staff should be properly educated about the customers value. The bank should use the marketing approach, and customer satisfaction

Internship Report on Muslim Commercial Bank. (Khwaza khela Branch Swat)


should be taken into account. There should be no status discrimination between customers. The bank staff should be courteous to all customers. A customer is fascinated and brings other customers also to the bank if the service is efficient and courteous.


Customers, waiting for their turns, should be provided with proper seating arrangements. Often it was visible that during peak banking hours many customers use to stand anywhere they wanted to. This created stress for the employees as well as other customers waiting for their job getting done. A specific place should be reserved for the customers by placing chairs there. The staff should politely tell the customers to be seated till their work is ready. This would ease the job of the employees as well as clients wont bear the pain of being standing still and waiting.

Another crucial problem in MCB is the scarcity of staff, all the branches of MCB are over loaded due to high customers attractiveness, which not only create problem for the customers but also for the existence staff, while the quality and fairness of work is also affected. So MCB should hire more staff in order to cope with the issue, for this issue short and long term plan which has been given in the implementation plan may be used.


The MCB claims of training and educating its employees but practically speaking it should initiate a good employee training and

Internship Report on Muslim Commercial Bank. (Khwaza khela Branch Swat)


development plan. This would help employees to know more about their specific job and its actual requirements.

The practice of performance appraisal should be made a serious and mature process which can identify an employees potential accurately. Giving unachievable tasks to employees discourages them and they dont strive for the achievements of those tasks. If targets which are practical given to employees and any bonus or reward are announced on the achievements, this would greatly influence the performance of employees. It can be possible only then that the employees will take their performance appraisal serious and would yearn for betterment.

The general target market of MCB is the upper class of the society. The sales force is often busy in looking at probable clients with large amount of money. It can also prove costly when sometimes another potential customers gets deviated because of the less attention paid to him. Also concentration in one market segment bears high risk and can lead to huge losses if a deposit is withdrawn. The bank should also offer some products for potential customers with comparatively lowincome level. Most of the potential customers cannot fulfill the high balance requirements and high service charges. Bank should revise its policies on charges for services it provides. This will result in more satisfied and trustworthy relationship between clients and employees.

All the departments should be given with an equivalent load of work this would result in a friendly relation among employees as well as it

will boost the coordination between different departments. Another suggestion would be that the staff should be involved in the decision making process. So that they can make arguments about their status of work after accepting the new responsibilities. This would also clarify the issue between staff members and responsibilities and authorities will be properly delegated, resulting in the ending of the confusions about work and responsibilities. It would also give a feeling of own ness and security to the workforce of being very much a part of the bank.


A fair internees selection system should be established for selection of internees. Instead of sending CVs to Karachi Head Office, the applicants should be interviewed locally in the branch on some specific date. Aptitude and competence of the candidates should be considered a merit for selection instead of their references. Bank administration should give proper training to the internees. They should educate them about the purpose of all the functions they perform. MCB also give internship generally for six weeks and for the maximum of eight weeks. This is a problem for MCB itself. Thus during the six or eights weeks duration when an internee gets some know how about the banks operation, his/her time completes; and when he/she can be more useful than ever, he/she is asked to leave. If MCB increases its internship period for a quota of seats, it will help MCB in taking much use of internees it trains for work. MCB also does not pay any stipend to the internees, which lead to discouragement among the internees.


The main job of the Internal Control Unit (ICU) is to ensure error less work in a branch. This unit critically checks the routine activities of a

branch on monthly basis. The recommendation for this finding is that if the ICU finds any error/ mistake it should be rectified on the spot instead creating such a big issue which create un rest among employees. References 1. Interview with the employees and personal observation.

Analyzing the banks performance in several departments and evaluating the strengths and weaknesses leads to some proposals. The implications of these suggestions are more important issue. MCB Khwaza khela Branch is generating profits and is targeting the market efficiently with its energetic management. Its location at the centre of business sector in Peshawar city is also adding to its easy accessibility by customers. Thus the outlook requirements of the bank are almost complete. The place for improvement in the bank is inside. The underlying problem of several other problems that was observed during the internship period was that MCB Khwaza khela Branch is and understaffed bank. It has enough vacant room for new employees. This hitch is the root cause of many other problems. Considering the prevailing circumstances at MCB Khwaza khela Branch and taking a broad overview of the possible solution, one would surely come up with the idea of employing fresh energetic workers. This would root out the above mentioned problems. Additionally an employee in the cash department would lessen the burden of the already working tellers as well as it would help in the reduction of long queues at the cash counter.

Thus now when the basic area of problem is identified, the understaffing, several measures can be taken into account to deal with

Internship Report on Muslim Commercial Bank. (Khwaza khela Branch Swat)


this problem. There are two plans which are suggested for dealing for this problem. 8.1 8.2 Short Term Plan Long Term Plan



The short term plan is devised for employees who would be given the chance to serve in the bank for a limited period. This can be done in the following two methods. a: Longer Duration Internship Program The bank normally offers a 6 weeks internship program. At the maximum this duration stretches to 8 weeks. During this period the employees of the bank helps the internees to understand various procedures regarding different departments. After the coaching and teaching of these 6 or 8 weeks the internee is able to comprehend most of the functions of the bank and he or she is able to follow the appropriate procedure which is to be followed for the completion of that function. The bank can introduce a long internship program for its own benefit as well as these graduates. To keep the normal internees unaffected, it can reserve a special quota for these kinds of long duration internees. The selection can be made in the local branches. To get good recommendation on this kind of a report the applicant will be motivated and will work hard. This will help him in getting experience as well knowledge about the delicacies of practical job. Most of the organization requires earlier experience in the field, thus MCB can be helpful in developing the youth into a positive direction as well. Since the name of MCB already means trust, this will build many peoples career in good organizations. The bank will benefit in the shape of obtaining a motivated and energetic employee and that also at a lesser

cost than the normal employees. The cost would be less because since these would be fresh graduates seeking experience and recommendation, hence they can take as internees. b: Contract Workers

The bank can also employ contract workers also. If the bank wants to be careful in choosing a better lot among the pool of candidates for its operations, it can offer contract seats. Contracts seats will be for applicants who will be employed on contract basis. This program will be different than the long internship program as the above program will be just meant for fresh graduates and new applicants who will get recommendation and will be paid the internees stipend..



The long term plan would be designed for the permanent employees of the bank, so that they can prove beneficial to the bank in future. This program would include picking up the most competent employee amongst the employees and sending him/her for further training and higher studies about the bank policies. Now the question arises that how can an employee be of any use to solve the problem of understaffing. The answer is that a more efficient, able, experienced and motivated employee can handle the job of several persons. The bank can make the selection amongst the employees on the basis of the performance the employees show and on achieving targets. When the selection about an employee is made, thus he/she will be send for a period of time to get training and education. More emphasis is to be given to the sensitivities and delicacies involved in the operations of different functions. He/she would be taught specifically the policies about the bank, the broader goal the bank want to achieve and the ways of cumulative efforts that are required.
