History of Banking:
The word Bank is derived from the Italian word Bancus or Banque which means bench,
desk or counter. Because in ancient times, the benches were used by the Jews for the purpose of
exchanging money. In ancient times the religious temples were used as the safest place for
keeping money and gold by people of that time under the supervision of the priests. Goldsmiths
then acted as the financial agents in exchange of gold and valuables which provided the basis of
Modern banking. Todays modern banking system is the ultimate and step by step achievement
of the ancient banking system of accepting deposits from those who have surplus and lending to
those who do not have it or have little.

Banking In Pakistan:
Prior to Independence British banks controlled the banking operation in Pakistan. After
independence there were no resources so that Pakistanis could start their own banking system in
a very short period of time. Then at that time it was decided that Reserve Bank of India will
control the banking operations in Pakistan. But this was not good for the best interest of
Pakistan because British Government at that time distributed the reserves of the Reserve Bank
of India between India and Pakistan with the share of 70% India and 30% Pakistan. It was a
very big loss for Pakistan at that time as being a new nation with new country having few
resources for survival. Then Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah (The Governor General of
Pakistan) at that time took a step ahead and inaugurated The State Bank of Pakistan on July
1st , 1948 which then took control of all the banking operations of Pakistan.

During my internship I found some of the faults and lack of some of the facilities in Banks
Operations. Here are some of the suggestions which I recommend to the Silk Bank Limited.
The advertising of Bank and Banks Products is not so much good and exposed to people.
So, Bank should hire some of the skilled Marketers who can design creative and
attractive advertisements and advertising campaigns by using all possible means of
Communication including Social Networking Websites to make every person aware of
the banks updates about old and new products and services.
Training sessions of bank employees of all over the country are conducted by bank at
Head Office Karachi which is very expensive for the bank to bear the accommodation
and meal charges of the employees. So bank should expand and establish some more
training centers in other cities of the country in order to reduce these expenses.
Bank is somewhat slow in launching new products. So bank should review its policies of
launching new products in short and reasonable time.
Foreign branch network should be increased in order to capture profits from all over the
Bank should motivate Sales Team because they are the main Source of Income, so
encourage them by giving Reasonable Incentives and Bonus.
There should be a communication link between executives and top level management.
Employees should not be overloaded with work, this helps in relaxation of employees and
will increase job satisfaction of employees which is in best interest of the bank.

The bank is actually an institution which accepts or collects the money or deposits from those
who have surplus of it and lend it to those who have in need of it or have capital in deficit, it
actually acts as a financial intermediary which connects persons with surplus money to those
who have shortage of money. In this process banks earn profit or commission for connecting
these people.
The history of banking in Pakistan is very interesting because at the time of independence there
was no bank in Pakistan which could perform the banking operations for this area of the world.
Till the end of June,1948 the financial operations of Pakistan was governed by the Reserve
bank of India but that casted a loss to Pakistan in a sense that British Government distributed
the 70% of reserves to India and Pakistan got just 30%. After this Quaid-e-Azam laid down the
foundation of The State Bank of Pakistan in July 1st, 1948.
In Pakistan there are a number of commercial banks which are accepting deposits and
advancing loans to customers with a lot of other facilities of providing financial services and
products to customers like car financing, home loans, debit and credit cards, agricultural loans
and a lot of other products.
Silk Bank is one of the most important, emerging and profitable bank in Pakistan which is
Under the Leadership of Mr. Shaukat Tarin. In its few years of age it showed a remarkable
performance and improvement with huge profits which is becoming high and high. But do not
forget about the Global Economic Crisis 2008 which affected all the banks including all the
Bank has great strengths which its competitors do not have as it has a very attractive brand
name with a slogan of Yes We Can which is somewhat emotional touchy for the persons who
seeks for care. The HR of the bank are very trained, professional and skilled which is
contributing towards the profits of the bank and bank in this way going towards attaining
continuous profits. The workforce of the bank is very young and energetic and working is being
done on standard basis. Pakistan government is supporting the bank because it is the foreign
investment bank which is acting as FDI for Pakistan.
