The socio-economic growth of any developing country depends mainly on the health of its monetary based institutions. The banking sector is one of the institutions, which play a vital role in the development of the economy. Its involvement in the industrial sector, trade and commerce of the country makes it an integral organ of the over all development of the country. With the advent of the modern technology and increased competition, banks are undergoing major changes, thus making this field a challenging one. Banking sector, no doubt, has a vital role in the development of our national economy. Moreover, the role of banks in the NWFP is of significant importance, due to the huge amount of home remittances from aboard, contributing not only to this province, but also to the national economy. National bank of Pakistan is one of the leading and first government recognized Bank of Pakistan. NBP was established on Nov 9, 1949, it started functioning from November 20, 1949.

A "Bank" can be simply defined as; "A financial institution that accepts deposits and channels the money into lending activities" According to the Banking Companies Ordinance Act 1960 (Section 5b) "Banking means the accepting for the purpose of lending or investment of deposits of money from the public, repayable on demand or otherwise and withdraw able by cheque or draft or otherwise". According to the Banking Companies Ordinance Act 1960 (Section 5c) "Banking company means any company, which transacts the business of banking in Pakistan". So, according to this section it is clear that every bank in Pakistan has to be a company (public or private). In short we can define bank as "A financial institution, which deals with money and credit. It accepts deposits from individuals, firms and companies at a lower rate of interest and gives at higher rate of interest to those who need them. Banks can play an important role in the economic development of a country. If the banking system is unorganized and inefficient; it creates maladjustments and impediments in the process of development.

2.2.1 Creating Money Commercial banks have the ability to create and to utilize the money. This is accomplished by lending and investing activities of commercial banks in cooperation with central bank. The increase in supply of money causes inflation and decrease in supply than the rate of production of goods causes deflation and both have bad effects on the economy. 2.2.2 Payment Mechanism Providing for payment mechanism or the transfer of funds is one of the important functions performed by commercial banks and it is increasingly important as greater reliance is placed on the use of checks and credit cards. 2.2.3 Pooling of Savings Commercial banks perform a very important service to all sectors of economy by providing facilities for pooling of savings and making them available for economically and socially desirable purposes. 2.2.4 Extension of Credit

The primary function of commercial banks is the extension of credits to worthy borrowers. From the beginning, organizers of banks have been motivated by the opportunities presented by lending function and charters have been granted by the governments primarily because there was a need for credit in a particular community. In making credit available, commercial banks are rendering a great social service through their actions, production is increased, capital investments are expanded and higher standard of living is realized. 2.2.5 Utilization of Resources 7

The internship report on NBP 8

In the new era, it is difficult to imagine that in the absence of banks people can make possible their savings and then their investments in different businesses. It is through the agency of banks that people can make savings and then these savings automatically flow into the channels, which are productive, both for saver and investor. 2.2.6 Capital Formation Capital formation is one of the major factors in economic development. It is the increase in the stock of both material and human capital. Capital formation results when some proportion of societys present income is saved and invested in order to increase materials as well as humane capital. 2.2.7 Safe Keeping Valuables The safe keeping of valuables is one of the oldest services provided by commercial banks. They have vaults that are difficult to enter even by the best of burglars and have established record of proper custody.



Banks play an important role in the economic development of a country. If the banking system is unorganized and inefficient, it creates maladjustments and impediments in the process of development. In Pakistan, the banking system is very well organized. The State Bank of Pakistan established on July 1, 1948 stands at the apex and is responsible for the operation of the banking system in Pakistan. The other banks, which form the banking structure in Pakistan, are playing an active role in the economic development of the country. The role of commercial banks in the growth and development of sound and healthy economy of the country is briefly discussed as under; 8

their customers valuables in safe custody.

It has not so far been decided as to how the word bank originated. Some authors opine that this word is derived from the words Bancus or Banque which means a bench. The explanation of this origin is attributed to the feet that the Jews in Lombardy transacted to the business of money exchange on benches in the market place; and when the business failed, the people destroyed the brancus. Incidentally the word bankrupt is said to have been evolved from the practice. Other authors hold the opinion that the word bank is derived from the German word back, which means joint stock bank. Later on, when the Germans occupied major part of Italy, the word back was Italianized into bank.



Banking existed in one form or the other ever since the importance of money was as a medium of exchange, was felt giving rise to the necessity of a controlling or regulating agency or institution. In a country like Pakistan, which is still in the initial stage of economic development, a well organized banking system is the need of the day. The Banks can play a vital role in capital formation, in controlling speculation, in maintaining a balance between requirements, availabilities and in directing physical resources in to desired channels.

At the time of partition, the total number of commercial banks was 38. Out of these, there were 2 Pakistani banks, and 29 Indian banks and exchange banks were only 7. In order to run the economy of the country, the number of Schedule banks branches was reduced from 619 to 213 in both wings of the country. As a new country without resources, it was very difficult for Pakistan to run its own banking system. Therefore, it was recommended that the reserve bank of India should continue to function in Pakistan Until 30th September, 1948.The Imperial bank of India, which had been acting as the agent of the Reserve Bank of India closed down most of its offices in Pakistan. Therefore, it was agreed between the Governments of India and Pakistan to advance the date from, 30th September .1947 to 30th June, 1948 up to which date the Reserve Bank of India should act as the monetary authority in Pakistan. The first Pakistani currency notes were issued in October 1948 in denomination of Rs.5, 10 and 100.By August 1949, the State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) withdrew the Reserve Bank of India notes of the value of Rs.125.02 crores with the help of Pakistani notes. The growth of banking in Pakistan since 1948 has indeed been phenomenal. The network of not only Pakistan but also foreign banks covers a very large segment of population in every corner of the country. More than 7,000 branches of these banks have mobilized more than Rs.887 billion in deposits and provided finance to various sectors amounting to more than Rs.548 billion till June 1997. INTEREST FREE BANKING A new concept of interest free banking was introduced in 1981 and by now it has been established on sound footing and new trends and techniques are 12

The internship report on NBP 13

being implemented to make this system result oriented. New products and their systematic consumption are making Pakistani banking comparable to their several modern counterparts anywhere in the developed world.



National Bank of Pakistan was established on November 9, 1949 under the National Bank of Pakistan Ordinance, 1949 in order to cope with the crisis conditions which were developed after trade deadlock with India and devaluation of Indian Rupee in 1949. Initially the Bank was established with the objective to extend credit to the agriculture sector. The normal procedure of establishing a banking company under the Companies Law was set aside and the Bank was established through the promulgation of an Ordinance due to the crisis situation that had developed with regard to financing of jute trade. The Bank commenced its operations from November 20, 1949 at six important jute centers in the then East Pakistan and directed its resources in financing of jute crop. The Bank's Karachi and Lahore offices were subsequently opened in December 1949. The nature of responsibilities of the Bank is different and unique from other banks/financial institutions. The Bank acts as the agent to the State Bank of Pakistan for handling Provincial/Federal Government Receipts and Payments on their behalf. The Bank has also played an important role in financing the country's growing trade, which has expanded through the years as diversification took place. The various phases through which the bank went have been discussed in a sequence below: 3.3.1 Formative Phase 1950s

When NBP was first formed it had authorized capital equivalent to the amount of Rs. 60 million. In 1950 shares of the bank were also floated and taken up and by 1951 NBP had started foreign exchange business. The ordinance that was passed at the time of inception of NBP was amended to include ordinary commercial banking business as well as by 1952 it was felt that the development of NBP was so immense that it should be considered as the agent of State Bank of Pakistan. Thus by May of 1952 NBP had taken over the Government treasury work from the former agent, Imperial Bank. The expansion of NBP was quite apparent by 1959 when it had 129 fully functioning branches as compared to the meager 17 in 1950.

Shares not formerly held by the Government were acquired from the private holders after compensating them. The decade of the 70s saw major changes at NBP. In 1972 there was reorganization in the top management structure of the bank. This structure had remained unchanged since the inception of the bank and had originally been inherited from the old Imperial Bank of India. 3.3.4 Period of Consolidation: 1980s On February 10, 1980 the Government of Pakistan announced a three year plan for the implementation of an Islamic Economic System.

the two most important measures directed to Islamize the economy. The system was introduced by the nationalized commercial banks with effect from January 1, 1981. National Bank of Pakistan evolved and introduced a wholly separate and comprehensive procedure for banking under this system from branch level to Head office. Along with development activities of the bank, consolidation of branch network was pursued. NBP decided to delegate administrative and financial powers to Principal Offices and Zonal Offices. 3.3.5 Challenges and New Initiatives: 1990s-2006 With the geographical development of its branches, NBP has been able to take services to a much larger number of Pakistanis all over the country.

Financial analysis is the process of identifying the financial strengths and weaknesses of the firm/organization by properly establishing relationships between the items of balance sheet and profit &loss account. Financial analysis can be undertaken by management of the firm, or by parties outsides the organization viz, owners, creditors, investor and others, the nature of analysis depends on the purpose of the analyst. Trade creditors are interested in firms ability to meet their claims over a short period of time. Their analysis will therefore, confine to the evaluation of the firms liquidity position. Suppliers of Long-term debt on the other hand are concerned with the firms long-term solvency and survival. They analyze the firms profitability over time, its ability to generate cash to be able to pay interest and repay principal and the relationship between various sources of funds (capital structure relationship). Long-term creditors do analyze the historical financial statements but they place more emphasis on the firms projected financial statements to make analysis about its future solvency and profitability. Investors, who have invested their money in the firms shares, are most concerned about the firms steady growth in earnings. As such, they concentrate on the analysis of the firms present and future probability. They are also interested in the firms financial structure to the extend it influences the firms earning ability and risk.

The internship report on NBP 46

Firms ability to maintain positive cash flow, while satisfying immediate obligations. 5.1.4 Stability The firm's ability to remain in business in the long run, without having to sustain significant losses in the conduct of its business. Assessing a company's stability requires the use of the income statement and the balance sheet, as well as other financial and non-financial indicators.



Analytical methods and techniques used in analyzing financial statements

Common size analysis Index analysis Ratio analysis

The objective of any analytical method is to reduce and to simplify the data under review to more understandable terms. The analysts first compute and organize the data and then analyze and interpret it to make them more meaningful.



They are often called component percentage or 100% statements because each statement is reduced to the total of 100 and each individual item is stated as a percentage of total of 100. Each percentage shows the relation of the individual item to its respective total. Thus in addition to financial ratio and other statements, over time its often useful to express balance sheet and income statement items as percentage. 46

The internship report on NBP 47

The percentage can be related to total assets or total revenue. The expression of individual financial statement items as percentage of total helps the analyst to spot trends with respect to the relative important of these items over time.



Trend analysis, which may be thought as index number, showing relative charges in financial data resulting with the passage of time. To make analysis, a base year is selected, in the statement that is to be used as the base year, state the amount of each item as 100%. If an amount of an item is less then the base year statement, the trend percentage will be below 100%, and if its more then that so the trend percentage will be above 100%. The advantage of trends percentage is that it focuses on year-to-year, or date-to-date changes.



The term ratio refers to the numerical relation ship between 2 items that helps in analyzing, evaluating and interpreting the financial performance of a firm. There are however, number of different ratios that aid in performing this function such as liquidity ratio, leverage ratio, profitability ratio etc.

Common Size Analysis and Index Analysis of balance sheet have been done in order to study financial position of the respective Bank. 5.6.1 ASSETS SIDE Looking at the current side of assets, we can see a major decrease in cash in 2006, and then again slight increase in 2008. Reason is that bank increased its advances, and deposits were slight decreased in 2006, so cash were used for advances. Again in 2008 deposits were increased, so bank used deposit amount for advancing and less amount was used from cash. Overall current assets were increased due to increase in advances. Fixed assets also shown some growth and investments are also increases in 2007.Lending to financial institutions are decreases in 2007 because banks make more investments in 2007.Overall asset side showed a good improvement, which is a good sign for banks health.


The internship report on NBP 52

5.6.2 Liabilities Side We can see a negative change in total liabilities in 2006 because, deposits were decreased, and deposits are major part of banks liability. So slight change in deposits affects total liabilities In 2007 we can again see an increase in total liabilities, because deposits were again increased so its affect can be seen in the shape of increase in total liabilities. 5.6.3 Shareholders Equity We can see an increase in the equity side, mainly because NBP issued 20 % bonus shares in 2006 and 20 % again in 2008, which increased its share capital Table 5.5: Income Statement

The income statement analysis of NBP is done, keeping in view the figures available from the annual reports of NBP for the year 2005, 2006 and 2007. Common Size Analysis and Index Analysis of income statement is being done in order to study the financial position of the respective Bank. 5.7.1 Gross Profit Side Gross profit comes after deducting the cost from the service revenue. We saw a major increase in gross profit in 2007 and gross profit is further increased in 2008. Majority, because advancing were increased, this earned them revenue. On the other hand cost was also increased, which was due to increase in deposits. But this cost was far lesser than increase in gross profit. 5.7.2 Net Profit Side We can see a consistent increase in net profits. Major increase in profits was due to increase in advancing and deposits, which earned them revenue in return.
