                                     EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 This report is aimed at studying and analyzing the National Bank of Pakistan

    University road branch Peshawar. This report is based on findings of eight weeks

    internship. National Bank of Pakistan was established in 1949. It has 1193 branches.

    National Bank of Pakistan has 28 regional headquarters and 12 corporate branches.

 The main purpose of the internship is to prepare and submit the report as partial

    fulfillment for the award of MS (Finance) degree.

       The methodology used in my report is based on two types of data. One is primary

data consisting of interviews, discussions with executives and officials, and personal

observation. Other type of data is secondary data consisting of annual reports, manuals,

journals, circulars, brochures and relevant books. During the internship, one of major

problems was the limitation of time and also there were very little material available in

the branch but my sense of personal observation moved me to collect the material as

much as possible from the National Bank of Pakistan University road branch Peshawar

but also from other branches of National Bank of Pakistan in Peshawar. I have also taken

the help from the books like Finance, Investment, Corporate Finance and accounting etc.

as well as from the Internet.

 Report findings are as follows. Apart from other chapters, I have done the financial

    analysis. some problems are:

   lack of professional staff

   improper management

   delegations of authorities are not according to the responsibilities

   lack of computers

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

   functional problems in departments

   favoritism and nepotism

   unequal distribution of work

   improper counter services

   ineffective marketing

     For the better functioning of bank, it needs to have sound system without such

problems. For that I have suggested some recommendations for improvement;

 report recommendations are as follows:

(a) complaint of customers

(b) marketing policy

(c) note counting machine

(d) poor quality of counter service

(e) unequal distribution of work

(f) computer networking

        Bank should make its distinctive position in such area of competition by providing

more effective services.

                                   INTRODUCTION OF STUDY

                                1.1 : BACKGROUND OF STUDY

National Bank of Pakistan is one of the leading and first government recognized bank in
NBP was established in November 9th, 1949, which started functioning from November
20th, 1949. The reason for development was that the NBP in addition to being a
commercial bank in the public sector at a time when all other commercial banks were in
private sector also came to acquire certain characteristics which to this day set it part
from other nationalized commercial banks of the country.
The most important of these characteristics is that NBP acts as an agent of the central
bank of the country. The NBP also acts as a trustee to the national investment trust (NIT);
one of the premier financial institutions of the country charged the responsibility of
mobilizing small saving.
The establishment of NBP thus signaled the achievement of another milestone in the
development of the banking industry in Pakistan.
                                     1.2 : PURPOSE OF STUDY

National Bank of Pakistan is one of the oldest and well-established bank in the public
sector. So I prefer NBP in order to set knowledge of this organization (NBP) for the
students of Business Administration, it is very important to know the all the financial
activity. In finance department I know, in which method the branch issued the advances
and what markup.
In National Bank of Pakistan University road branch Peshawar that give short –term
finance especially for the govt. employees, and the chance of default is very low because
they have also a bank account, and their salary come in that branch.
The weakness of the finance section is that the process is very slow, and the requirement
for issuing the advances, for the govt. employees is very tough. And there is no even
single case of default.

                               : SCOPE OF WORK
The scope of my work is based on the complete observation of national bank, but due to
shortage of time, I worked in special department of the branch, first of all deposit
In deposit department, deposits are divided in to two or three types.
i)       current deposits
ii)      PLS deposits (PLS saving A/C, PLS term deposit.)
iii)     Fixed Deposits.
           In the above three types of deposits, I learn the entire necessary requirements
and also know the interest rate.
Secondly advance department is the most important department of the bank. It deals long-
term advance and Short-term advance and also consists of finance i.e. short-term finance
and long term finance.
Thirdly I also worked in remittance department. It consists of issuing DDS, MITS,
telegraphic transfers SE (short credit).
LAC (local short credit) clearing. I also worked in account department and check issuing
and computer department.
                      1.3 : METHODOLOGY OF STUDY/RESEARCH

During my internship in National Bank of Pakistan University road branch Peshawar, the
most important task was to collect more quality information about the organization as
much as possible that is why I used a number of techniques to collect the required
material and conduct the report.
The methodology, which I adopted for this research is based on both the primary data as
well as secondary data regarding the overall operation of NBP.
The primary data consist of interviews with manager, discussions coordination with the
executive and officers, and other staff’s personal observation and different types of
written material from Bank.
        The sources of secondary data were annual report 2008, manuals, circulars,
relevant books, brochures and monthly economic reports.
       I have also got support from available banking material & books, as well as
information from human resource management and research methodology material.

                                        Evaluation of Banking

The word “banking” is derived from the words Bancus, Banque or Back. The history of
Banking is traced to as early as 2000BC.
The origin of banking is also traced to early goldsmith. The first stage in the development
of modern banking thus was the accepting of deposits of cash from these persons who
had surplus money with themselves.
In the second step, goldsmiths used issue receipts for the money deposits with them.
These receipts began to pass from hand to hand in settlement of transaction.
In the same time they thought it profitable to lend at least some of the money deposited
with them to the needy persons. This proved quite a profitable business for the gold
In order to create confidence among the people, different steps were taken to regulate the
banking organization.

A conference was held in Nuremberg, 1584. It was decided that a bank should be set up
by the state, which should streamline the banking organization and technique.
The first central bank was formed in Genoa in 1587. Banks of England were established
in 1694.
Wit the passage of time the activities of the commercial banks have greatly increased.
They now deal with large number of matters such as obtaining funds, advancing loans to
businesses, farmers, house holds, and making investment in stocks discount bills of
exchange etc.

                                        MODERN BANKING
By the year 1700 the bank of England was not only 100 issuing notes but also
conducting accounts for customers. In 1853 bank of England further impetus for cheques,
currency, and they became very popular among the customers who would either pass
them from hand to hand. In 1946 the labor government nationalized the Bank of England.

                                     DEFINITION OF BANKS.

       Banking companies ordinance 1962 section 5(b) defines bank as, “Banking means
the accepting for the purpose of lending or investment, of deposits of money from the
public, repayable on demand or otherwise, an draw able by cheques, drafts order or


The History starts from the partition of Indo-Pak subcontinent in August 1947. At that
time, the area constituting Pakistan had 631 offices of 45 schedule banks out of which
487 were located in West Pakistan and 144 in East Pakistan, which was also served by
500 offices of small and non-scheduled banks. There were 19 branches of foreign banks
in Pakistan but they had a very little role to play.
Just after the partition the Indian bankers started migrating and shifting all the head
offices of their banks and capital to India. This way great set back to the banking field in
Pakistan, and resulted in a decline in the number of offices of scheduled banks from 631
to 195 by June 1948. In West Pakistan the number fell from 487 to 81, in East Pakistan

from 144 to 114. Among Habib Bank limited with 25 offices and Australian Bank
Limited with 19 offices were institutions run by Muslims who shifted their head offices
to Pakistan.
The technical and administrative difficulties of establishing a central bank just after
independence compelled Pakistan to enter into an agreement with reserve Bank of India
by which the bank was to perform function of central bank in this area upto 30th
September 1948. The reserve bank of India started following polices against interest of
Pakistan. The situation become so grave that after the consolation of two governments,
the Reserve Bank of India way asked to finish the agreement from 30th June 1948 instead
of 30th September 1948. The Government of Pakistan decided to establish the State Bank
of Pakistan as its Central Bank from 1st July 1948. In the same year the first Pakistani
notes comes in the domination.

On 9 November 1949, the government of Pakistan issued an order, which brought into
being the first public sector bank in Pakistan named as National Bank of Pakistan.
According to the order, the Bank started functioning on November 20, 1949. All other
earlier and subsequent commercial banks were incorporated under companies’ law but in
the case of NBP; this practice was set aside, which gave NBP a sole identity than other
banks. Need for this step was felt necessary because of the financial crises in September
1949, when Government interest was not secure due to absence of public sector bank.
That’s why from the very beginning the board of directors of the bank, the Government
duly presented the law. The new bank received a liberal advance from the State Bank of
Pakistan, which help it to extend finances for Jute and Cotton trade in the beginning.
National Bank of Pakistan was not only the first commercial bank of public sector but it
also attained some special features over other banks like it acts as an agent of the State
Bank of Pakistan where SBP does maintain its own branches. In those places it provides
all facilities of clearing house and other related, to commercial banks in that area. In
addition it is also an agent to the government and custodian of government treasury and
government transactions. It also acts as a trusty to the National Investment Trust, a
premier financial institution charged with the responsibility of mobilizing small saving in

the country. In this way the establishment of State Bank of Pakistan was another
milestone development of banking industry in Pakistan.

               2.1       : HISTORY OF NATIONAL BANK OF PAKISTAN

                         2.1.1 : The Expansion (1949-1960)
National bank of Pakistan came into being, and filled a vast vacuum, left in banking as a
consequence of the emergence of the independent state of Pakistan. Thus it was
continued to be the largest commercial bank in the country due to its monopoly over
government funds and its role as banker to the government and as an agent of the State
Bank of Pakistan. This was a period of steady expansion with the growth of government
funds and business.

                                 2.1.2 : The Decline (1961-1972)

Privatization increased in terms of size and sophistication, as a result major private bank
i.e. Habib Bank Limited (HBP) overtook National Bank of Pakistan (NBP) to become the
large bank. HBL was also ahead in the deposit size. During this period, NBP expands
very cautiously, from the competitive fray after the creation (1958) of the highly
aggressive Habib Bank Limited (HBP) and United Bank Limited (UBP), lost
continuously not only in the base of assets and size of deposits but also in profitability.

                              2.2.3: Commercialization (1973- 1981)

Nationalization of commercial banks occurred in the country, and the monopoly of NBP
over government businesses and funds began to be eroded. As a consequence, NBP came
under pressure to commercialize. This period saw the introduction of new commercial
response. Mainly due to very rapid expansion, the system of internal control failed to
keep pace with the requirement of a fast expanding system. The market share in the
overall deposits of nationalized banks declined from 25 percent during this period. At the
same time, the return on asses and on the deposits declined from Rs.0.63 percent to 0.32
percent while profits grew sluggishly from Rs.95 millions to Rs.110 millions till 1981.

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

                   2.2.4: AGGRESSIVE STYLE OF BUSINESS (1982-90)

Beginning from 1982-1983 periods, a basis was laid for an aggressive competitive and
market-orient response. It was during this period that the domestic network began to
show increasingly profits. The share of NBP in the bank deposit of nationalized banks
grew from 25.4 percent in 1983 to 27.7 percent in 1988. The share in the advances
increased from 20.7 percent to 26.9 percent during the same period. It was during this
strategic phase that NBP achieved as relatively firm position as number two in relation to
Habib Bank Ltd. And left United Bank Ltd. Behind profit before tax grew from Rs.149
million in 1988, thus registering an increase of 111 percent in the seven years period
comparing with only 4 percent increase in the profits during the previous seven years

                             2.2.5: MODERNIZATION (1990-1996)

The National Bank of Pakistan posed itself for a strong bank through into its next
strategic phase that can be termed as the strategic phase. The main thrust of this phase
was the re-organization of the bank to meet the challenges of the 21st century and to build
a sound basis for the organizational excellence through modern techniques and methods
of bank management from bottom upward starting from the branch to the top.
      A beautiful achievement in orientation and commercial bank basis existed in the
field and Head Offices as a result success in the 1985-88 periods and the revolutionary
success in 1995-1996. The executive and office cadres are also conscious of the
organizational business aim and are expected to respond vigorously to Excellent through
Modernization strategy. The change in the attitude of the top bosses of the NBP could be
easily seen by the revolutionary reforms introduced in the organization for example,
Culture Change Program and Credit Card. These two reforms portrayed that the bosses of
the NBP were well aware of the market changes.

Like all businesses in Pakistan, National Bank of Pakistan was also put under a great
pressure in this period when the biggest bank of the country was faced with losses.
Government of Pakistan also made some reform in this time. The Pakistan banking
Council was demolishes and all banks were put under
Independent boards of governors. Default of loans is the big issue since that time. In
1996-97 the government of Pakistan pressurized all the institutions of the country to
down-size their staff so as to
Cut-down the expenses. This was the demand of I.M.F. As a result, a Golden Handshake
Scheme was offered to the employees of the bank under which over 7500 employees
were removed. This decision created a lot of cost that was then amortized. In the second
phase of the cost reduction program, the number of branches was reduced by a figure of
100, which included all the branches that were making loses.
         The decision of May 28,1998 blasts followed by a political decision of freezing of
foreign currency accounts also created a hard time of NBP. But still NBP performed well
in such difficult conditions and succeeded in the increase of deposits and also collects a
reasonable amount of money from the defaulters. The situation became worst by the
economic crises of East Asian countries but again National Bank of Pakistan performed
well in that area and maintained its credibility in these areas.
         National Bank of Pakistan, as per its tradition, forwarded for revival of fifty six
units with Rs. 3.5 billion in 1998 and also participated in the self employment scheme
with Rs.1.9 billion. National Bank of Pakistan also introduced ATM card system and it
also became a member of SWIFT in New York. It has also prepared a plane for electronic
banking and E-commerce. By seeing all these improvements we can say that the officials
and directors of the bank are well aware of all the necessity of modernization.

                                : ORAGNIZATION OBJECTIVES

                          2.6.1 : Mission Statement:
To be recognized in the market place by institutionalizing a merit and performance
culture, creating a powerful and distinctive brand, identity, achieving top-tier financial
performance, and adopting and living out our core values.

                              2.6.2 : The Objectives:
All the objectives of the National Bank of Pakistan were compatible to the mission
statement of the bank. As a business organization, its main objective was profit
maximization, the only yard of performance. NBP tries to maximize its profits by its two
basic functions i.e. deposits and finances.

                           2.6.3 : To Increase Deposits:
Due to the tough competition faced in every field, banking has no competition from this
category. Whether the bank is Pakistani, Foreign, and private or nationalized, competition
is there. In the competition NBP has the goal to achieve the greatest possible amounts of
deposits. The tool used by the bank in order to increase its deposits was to provide the
best of facilities to their customers. By the increase in profits of bank mean that bank
becomes capable of lending more loans to the clients and hence earning profit from them.
In simple terms, holding greater deposits results in greater income of the bank, and the
profit maximization occurs and that is achievement of the banks’ objectives. In this
regard, the bank’s favorite account was PLS saving account because in the main city
branch Peshawar there was small savings with the general public. Current account was
also popular in the bank because the bank does not have to pay any interest to the
customers and hence banks can save some money, although some facilities are provided
to the customers.

                                    2.6.4 : Extension of Loans:

The profitability of the bank depends upon the amount of loan sanctioned or given to the
people. The credits afforded by the bank depends greatly on one factor and that is the
credit along with the interest payable should be secure, and that in turn depends upon the
type of people, the bank is sanctioning loans. Banking history is full of incidences where

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

people were offered huge loans and they wrote off their loans by means of political
         It was very important issue for NBP to secure its loans and the interest as well.
Therefore NBP was very selective in sanctioning loans to the people in those days. NBP
preferred loans to bigger and reliable parties, after securing the collateral. NBP also
provides loans to small businesses but mostly the loans were provided to the industrial
sector of Sindh and Punjab.
         The loans provided by the NBP constitute the major portion of the profit of the
bank. The markup charged by the bank varies with the type of loan issued to the
customer; the terms and the conditions of the loans were also negotiable depending upon
the relationship between the customer and the bank. NBP has an extremely well
organized credit section. The staff is trained and educated and competent. They carry out
complete financial analysis and different ratios are also calculated. The bank specially
emphasized a sound quick ratio that shows the current cashable assets and could be relied
upon to provide the cover for the loan.

                         2.7       : THE INSTITUTIONAL APPROACH

THE UNIQUE ROLE OF NBP IN Pakistan’s financial sectors confers on the institution a
dual responsibility to be a commercial bank in its own right and at the same time, as a
trustee of public finances, to act as a custodian of the public interest. The continuing
validity of this role means that the kind of responsibility borne by National Bank of
Pakistan is unlike any other financial institution. As the only institution of its kind, it
performance an operational direction a need to be reflected in an ethos of productivity,
efficiency, flexibility and quality of services both to the individual customer and the
nation at large.
New initiatives and new efforts have been undertaken so as to:
1)       Restore institutional effectiveness with priority to customer care.
2)       Improve decisions making at all level relating rewards with performance.
3)       Upgrade the quality of resources available to the bank.
4)       Improve deployment of resources.
5)       Diversity in to new areas of activities.

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

6)       Build on existing strength.

                                2.8      : CORPORATE CULTURE

National Bank of Pakistan, after its pure commercialization, focused its eyes on the
corporate sector and initiates an ambitious and farsighted Corporate Culture Change
Program in collaboration with price Water House (U.K) and AF FERGUSON &
Company in 1995. It commenced with an Executive Envisioning workshop in Bhurban.
This two days workshop developed a comprehensive Mission Statement, vision of the
bank’s future; it sets out in clear and realistic terms, the key objectives and goals of NBP
based on the perceived strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats being faced by the
institution. In this perspective, NBP has defined for itself a course where it will endeavor
to maximize its impact commensurate with the size and scale of operations. In order to
change the bank’s posture from reactive, four major areas had been highlighted for
concerted of actions.

1)       Personal Human Resource Management plan
2)       Operations and Strategic management Plan
3)       Technology Information Technologies Acquisition Plan
4)       Marketing.

                            2.9       : THE CHANGE PROGRAMME

                                  2.9.1 : The Symbol Of Change

The Logo of national Bank of Pakistan is “the symbol of change”. This logo has led the
bank to believe that “Organizations that do not change the changing environment wither
away into oblivion.” This led NBP to introduce the “Cultural Change Program”. The
spirit of the Culture Change Program is symbolized by the special “Change” logo. It
depicts a soaring eagle clasping the NBP logo, and epitomizes our vision. The NBP logo
represents the tradition of scholarly and Security, the basis for the future of the bank. The
Eagle represents Dynamisms, symbolizing the new customer focus and the new products,
new way of working carrying the bank to dominance.

    For 2007                             315288622 / 174089037 = 1.8 times
    For 2008                         425660500/ 202710020 = 2.10 times
    Analysis: The Current Ratio of NBP is improved from 1.4 in the year 2006 to 1.8 in
    the year 2007, which further improved to 2.10 in the year 2008, which means that the
    liquidity of the bank is improved. This comparison of current ratio for the bank
    signifies a strong measure of short-term debts paying ability in the year 2004 as
    compare to the previous year under study.

                                            Gross Profit Margin:

    Gross Profit Margin is the ratio of gross profit to net sales expressed as a percentage.
    It expresses the relationship between gross profit and net sales.

    Gross Profit Margin = Gross Profit / Net Sales x 100
    For 2006               =11172207/8821045 x 100 = 126.65%
    For 2007               =14774278/1241337 x 100 = 119.01%
    For 2008               =16025000/11527400 x 100 = 139.01%

    Analysis: The Gross Profit Margin is decreased to 119.01% in the year 2007 as
    compare to 126.65% in the year 2006, which increased again in 2007 up-to 139.01%,
    so the ratio measure of the profitability of the firm that the bank earns has more Gross
    Profit on sales in the year 2004 from the previous year.

                                         NET PROFIT MARGIN:

    This is ratio of net profit after taxes to net sales. It is also expressed as a percentage.

    Net Profit Margin = Net Income / Net Sales x 100
    For 2006                = 461227 / 8821045 x 100 = 5.22%
    For 2007                =1148529 / 1241337 x 100 = 92.5%

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

    For 2008                         = 11052000/11527400 x 100 = 95.87%

    Analysis: Net Profit Margin in the year 2008 is 95.87%, while 92.5% in the year
    2007 and 5.22% in the year 2006. Because of the low payment for administrative
    expenses, financial expenses and also making less provision for taxation in the year
    2008 as compare to year 2007 & 2006.
                                    Return on Capital Employed:

    The primary objective of making investments in any business is to obtain satisfactory
    return on capital invested.           Hence, the return on capital employed is used as a
    measure of success of a business in realizing this objective.                        Return on capital
    employed establishes the relationship between profit and capital employed.                              It
    indicates the percentage of return on the capital employed in the business and it can
    be used to show the overall profitability and efficiency of the business.

                                  Return of Gross Capital Employed:

Gross Capital Employed means the Total Assets including fixed as well as current, used
in the business.
Return on Gross Capital Employed=Income before taxes / Gross capital Employed x

    For 2006               =1032400/371635738 x 100 = 0.27%
    For 2007               =3015629/415088990 x 100 = 0.72%
    For 2008               = 16015200/950000000 x 100 = 1.68%

    Analysis: The Return of Gross Capital Employed is increased to 1.68% in the year
    2008 as compared to 0.72 in 2007 & 0.27% in the year 2006.

                                   Return on Net Capital Employed:

    By deducting Current Liabilities from the Total Assets we will get the Net Capital

    Return on Net Capital Employed= Net Income before Taxes / Net Capital
    Employed x 100
    For 2006        =1032400 / 16982917 x 100 = 6.07%
    For 2007        =3015629 / 117510437 x 100=17.22%
    For 2008        = 16015200/80200000 x 100 = 19.96%

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP    By: Imdadulllah

      Analysis: Return on Capital employed shows that how well the management has
      used the investment made by inside sources and outside sources. Higher the return on
      capital employed, the more efficient the firm is using the funds. This ratio for bank is
      increased to 19.96% in the year 2008 from 17.22% in the year 2007 & 6.07% in the
      year 2006.
                                         Debt to Equity Ratio:

It indicates the extent to which debt financing is used relative to equity financing.
Debt to Equity Ratio = Total Debts / Owners equity

For 2006                   =354652821 / 11192679 = 31.6 times
For 2007                   =397578553 / 11206447 = 35.5 times
For 2008                   = 456500000/ 11540000 = 39.55 times

Analysis: from this analysis we came to know that the bank relies more on equity
financing rather than on debt financing.

                                         Debt to Assets Ratio:

It shows the relationship between total debts and total asset

Debt of Assets = Total Debts / Total Assets.
For 2006             =354652821 / 371635738 = 0.95 times
For 2007             =397578553 / 415088990 = 0.96 times
For 2008             = 456500000/ 950000000 = 0.48 times

Analysis: This analysis shows that the firm is not relying on borrowed money because
the ratio is consistently decreasing.


National Bank of Pakistan maintained its position as a Pakistan’s largest bank in 2007. A
31% increase in total revenue was achieved in the year, while operating profit (before
provision and amortization) increased by 69% to Rs.8.1 billion from Rs. 4.8 billion and
pre tax profit went up 193% to Rs.3.02 billion from Rs.1.03 billion.                         Total assets
increased to Rs.415 billion from Rs.372 billion, while deposit grew by over 10% to
Rs.349 billion from Rs.316 billion. As a consequence all financial and operating ratios
improved. Cost to income ratio was 0.52, the pre tax return on equity was 25% and
capital adequacy ratio was around 11%.

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

The non-performing loan (NPL) portfolio of the bank is adequately covered through a
combination of cash provision (60%) and forced sale value (FSV) of securities. The cash
provisioning is the highest in our peer group. The focus on managing the NPL is on
restructuring as opposed to litigation.
                                    MARKET RECOGNITION

Besides the very large over subscription for the public issue, NBP was also recognized as
the best bank in Pakistan for 2004 by the prestigious periodical, “The banker” UK (a
subsidiary of Financial Times group.) The bank was also awarded “AAA” rating by
JCR-VIS Credit Rating Co. Limited, an affiliate of Japan Credit Rating Agency.

                                              CHAPTER- 6

                                           SWOT ANALYSIS

     It has been observed that it is quite difficult for a bank to maintain a balance between
providing service on one hand and achieving growth in assets and profit on the other
hand. Many important factors contribute in this regard. Although, NBP has the ability to
coup with these challenges through its biggest networking in the country by a reasonable
representation in the international community, but still due to the changing environment,
it is necessary for the bank to innovate accordingly.
     Following are few areas, which need improvements with the admittance that these
deficiencies may not be present in the other branches of the bank.

                            6.1: THE ROLL OF HEADQUARTERS

It is said that there are too many layers of management, and this structure prevents the
line offices from exercise real responsibility and decision- making. The lower
management is not given that power and authorities which should be delegated to them.
That’s why the branch managers and other staff are allergic to take any step at their own.
Rather they wait for head office orders and initiatives. This prevents innovations on one
side and slows down the operation on other side. Elimination of decision power among
the staff is one of the other consequences.

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

                                  6.2: THE SPAN OF CONTROL

Another consideration regarding the organizational structure is the span of control. Span
of structure means the number of subordinators working under a supervisor, in the
branch. The span of control is narrow, as there are too many layers in the management.
Although it is considered an efficient system in accordance with the classical theory but
at the same time this system is too much cost-oriented and less work-oriented. The
unnecessary pressure over the staff produces guilty feelings among them.

                        6.3: NEED OF COMPUTERIZED NETWORK

Computers are flesh and blood of today’s every institution and no organization can run
without the specialized network. The use of computer becomes inequitable in such a big
organization like national bank of Pakistan. Banking is a sensitive system involving
money, and need 100% accuracy in the record keeping. All private banks are making full
use of this facility. Through computer network, they provide fast service of advances and
Use of computers in national bank of Pakistan is very limited. At head quarter’s level,
there is excellent computerized network used for record keeping. Computer used there in
head quarters are mini or main frames, having high efficiency, but at branch level the
situation is different. There is only one computer in the branch under study, there is
neither computer network nor any computer service at the counter and most of the work
is done manually.

                                   6.4: CUSTOMER SERVICES

Like all business organizations, National Bank of Pakistan is also a customer oriented.
Like in other government institutions, the customer service provider is not satisfactory.
As political leaders supported most of the staff members, they least care about the
reputation of the organization. Although the un-educated people of the villages of
N.W.F.P. were not easy to handle, but it does not justify the poor attitude towards them.
Favoritism, and nepotism was a common phenomenon like in other government

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

organizations, therefore people were motivated towards other private banks, which are
sole competitors of the National Bank.

                                6.5: PRESENTATION FACTORS

     Presentation at the customer outlets can do a lot for the success of an organization,
but national bank of Pakistan was found lacking in this respect. There was no standard
dressing and personal getup for the staff. One of the major causes of success of all the
newly established private banks is that the bank staff wears very nice and attractive
dresses. In the University road branch Peshawar, most of the staff members used to come
in shabby dresses, which present a neglected and non-decent picture of the bank.
Although there were some improvements reported that wearing of clean and neat suit
were made compulsory in bank timing, which was warmly welcomed by officers but it
need a bit of strict implementation.
    Apart from the staff, branch’s own representation necessary, this seems better in
University road branch Peshawar, but still not encouraging at the level of small branches.
No doubt that national bank of Pakistan is working in very hard areas where hardly a
bank can survive but as it is a government’s agency, it has to maintain branches. Some of
the quite busy and important branches portray a pathetic picture and a lot of money
would be required for their maintenance.
                                6.6: WORKING ENVIRONMENT

      The working environment in this organization is certainly not an ideal one expected
of such a big organization. Employees, working at different levels of hierarchy, work
under pressure all the times and this is mainly due to bureaucratic style of management.
Thus there is not job loyalty among the workers and they consider it as a burden. The
working environment needs improvements. Working environment can be bettered if
online banking is introduced in the bank.


     The recruitment system of national bank of Pakistan is directly under the control of
head office Karachi, but regional headquarters can appoints some of the staff. As, in all
the government organizations, the procedures and rules regulations are just for the sake of

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

record keeping. The system involves a lot of nepotism, and merit seems to be the
secondary importance. Practical is not in consonance with the policies and the standard
procedure are not being followed as described of the organization are influential and not
in conformity with the rules. In IT department in the branches, their should be a person
with proper IT knowledge but it seems not good because not a single employee is an IT
                            6.8: PROFESSIONALISM REQUIRED

      Professionalism means to be an expertise, having command and necessary skills in
the field of work. Here in the national bank of Pakistan, the one would hardly find the
persons, who have been specially trained, for the specific job. The policy of the right man
at right place is not focused. The other big gap arises when most of the experienced staff
members went out in the well known golden handshake scheme, all the persons applied
in this scheme were well experienced and backbone of the organization, and capable to
adjust themselves easily or they were at the edge of retirement.

                        6.9: TRAINING NEEDS OF IR PERSONNEL

      In banking, performance of employees plays major role for prospering the business.
Every employee of the bank needs a variety of training courses to improve his
performance. National bank of Pakistan offers various courses to its employees from time
to time but the main undesirable thing pointed out by the bank employees is that there is
no criteria of selection of these courses. It means that those who really need to be trained
are not given a chance. There is no training provided to the IT personnel because of lack
of this department in various branches.
     Besides, all the executive staff of the bank is highly qualified and well trained but
they are trained in regulated atmosphere where the fact of existing of deregulated
environment is totally ignored.

                                   6.10: PROMOTIONS POLICY

      In National bank of Pakistan, the head of department or the branch manager keeps
an eye on the employees and if he finds some one with good performance he mark him
good in annual confidential report, a report which is generally based on personal liking

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

and disliking. Those reports provide a base for promotion as the performance was given
60% weightage. Further more, the promotion has no specific time of service limit. When
the bank authorities want, they just do it. These practices de-motive the employees and do
not take keen interest in their job.
                                       6.11: TRNSFER POLICY

      The transfer policy of the National bank of Pakistan is that every person of the bank
may not stay more than three years at a station. The situation was different practically,
and most of the persons were working at the same branch for even more than five years.
This has not only produced frustration among the workers but curb the chance of
innovation in the branch.

                                   6.12: RETIREMENT POLICY

      Retirement policy of golden handshake proved to be a hard decision for the bank as
it generated a huge cost burden over the organization. Still the employees are happy of
the scheme.
                              6.13: COMMUNICATION FUNCTION

      The communication with in the various branches of the bank in general is
satisfactory as for as the services are concerned but the official communication is a bit
slow in the NBP. The files and circulars sent by the bank authorities are not
communicated to the concerned persons. As a result no body knows about the rules and
regulations of the head office. The head office is also not exception itself. It sends as
many amendments as its order that it also a gap among the different seats and counters of
the branch which create difficulty in communication.
     The communication skills of the staff are not encouraging. The staff actually does
not have any professional manners to deal the customers. They are rigid in conversation,
lack in courtesy that becomes a barrier in the customer satisfaction.

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

                           6.14: TRANSPORT FACILITY
      National Bank of Pakistan do provides conveyance to its employees but only to
executive level, and the lower level employees have no provision of pick and drop for
their offices. Even their managers do not have this facility many times. This also has
adverse effects on the efficiency of the staff members.
                          6.15: NEED OF COMPETITIVE ATTITUDE

     National Bank of Pakistan has monopoly in the government transaction due to which
its employees lack in competitive attitude. There are instances, when not in good mood,
they simply say to the customer, you please go to the other bank. This is the thing, which
is responsible for the disaster of all the government control organization including
National bank of Pakistan. The management of the bank has failed to eradicate this evil.
They do not try to improve the existing standards. They seem to be happy where they
stand and these attitudes prohibit them from innovation process.
                    6.16: NEED FOR AGGRESSIVE MARKETING
     Unfortunately, National bank of Pakistan has very poor strategy of marketing.
Although they show their adds in Pakistan Television bet they do not have any brochure
or pamphlet for the new comers or for the potential customers which may contents the
package of investment and deposits.
                           6.17: NEED OF SOCIETAL MARKETING

     Societal marketing is one of the popular ways of marketing now-a-days but National
bank of Pakistan is not involved in any societal marketing as “Arial” is doing those days.
They should participate in the activities involving betterment of society. Only societal
marketing can produce a soft corner in the customer’s hearts.
                              6.18: ON LINE BANKING
     As far National bank of Pakistan is concerned except for one or two main branches,
most of the branches are not doing on-line banking & now a days almost all the banks are
providing this facility. Online banking is the most effective way to increase the efficiency
of working conditions of the bank as well as to attract more & more customers.

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

                                    6.19: ATM FACILITY
     This facility is very useful for the customers to have their account open & can encash
his/her money 24 hours a day, whenever required. But in most of the branches, this
facility is not provided.
                                        6.20: CREDIT CARDS

     Credit cards help the customers but NBP has no such service available, which is also
a draw back in its efforts to attract more potential customers.
                                              CHAPTER- 7.


                                           CONCLUSION.

        A detailed study of the organization made it to conclude that in era of
decomposition and de-formalization, the survival of an organization is now
multidimensional. Today’s organization is not related to managing things but now it is
moving towards the creation if opportunities is the main purpose of the manger. Every
manger can be seen in the roll of a leader. The era of restricted and bureaucratic
environment has gone. Now the manager is more realistic for problem & the use of
computerized network is necessary to survive.
        It is observed that National bank of Pakistan, as a purely financial institution has
its own cultural environment and the functions of the bank run according to this
environment but the changing environment demands for a change, a change which is
unique in nature. No doubt the National bank of Pakistan is one of the successful banks in
the Pakistan, but still some alternatives are required for a pace to the change. As advance
use of information technology and informational change will bring a roll of performance
to bank.
The executive class and the upper management of the bank are highly trained and well
experienced as for as the operational area of the bank are concerned. But unfortunately
they are operational where existence of regulation is stresses. This is era of deregulation,
but they simply ignore the reality. The management should change them with the
changing environment. The awareness of staff from the goals of the organization is

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

extremely important and they require a roll in the setting of regulation and
implementation of rules.
For the purpose, a creative leadership is also required. The leaders and managers of the
bank have operational and administrative skills required to run the organization but now
they need some additional skills, which are important for survival in the competitive
market. Today everyone needs to differentiate himself from other to capture the market.
In short, National bank of Pakistan in not only one of the leading banks, but it is also the
agent to the Government and state bank of Pakistan. The situation, which is facing by the
National bank of Pakistan, was never before. Considering all these things and to meet the
demands of the new millennium, the bank must shift its attitude from ordinary
commercial banking to the attitude of a specialized financial institution.
National bank of Pakistan has too much strength, which are not available to the other
commercial banks in Pakistan. It has the largest market for improvement as it has
branches all over the country’s rural and urban areas. So it has the best access to the
public capital. The only thing remains is that the strengths and opportunities should be
capitalized in a scientific way to generate more of it. All the activities of the bank are
Best but the bank needs to solve the problem of online banking activities, which should
help the bank operations and will ease its way to become number one in banking sector.
                                     RECOMMENDATIONS.

        Problems never exist without remedies. National bank of Pakistan is not exception.
Understanding its complexities and the requirements of new millennium can solve the
problems faced by the bank in the era of modernization.
     Following are the remedial measures suggested for the bank, which may bring it to
                                    7.1: Market Driven Strategies

       Keeping in view the long term goals and objectives of any financial institutions,
NBP will has to focus on the achievement of the market driven strategies. It has to focus
the challenges and avail the opportunities to get the maximization of goals. And then the
people working in the organization in order to make the process of achieving the
objectives easier must understand these goals of the organization. For the purpose a

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

written copy of goals should be provided to the bank employees in which each and every
aspect of strategies, consequences, responsibilities, and ultimate objectives are explained
in a comprehensive and clear wording.
The understanding of goals of the organization, the achievement of these goals within
prescribed budget, the knowledge about the today’s employee, and introducing new
productive programs with time to time will expand the area of operations of the bank and
maintain the stability in the competitive market.
                        7.2: Modernization Of The Technology
       Although national bank of Pakistan is one of the leading banks of the country still
it requires some way to modernize the bank’s operations. The installation of
computerized information system is necessity of the bank to compete the private banks of
the country. Communication means among the branches should be modified with
installation of computerized networking all over the network of branches in the world.
This will save time of the organization but also money of the bank. All private banks
have networking of this type, which makes available the records of all the customers
through out the country, hence the customer incase his cheque from any branch of the
bank with out any inconvenience. If national bank of Pakistan will provide this facility, it
will play a roll of milestone to the up heights.
The culture of ATM cards has already been established in the major cities but still lacks
in the other areas. This system should be given wide ranges that will not only help in
minimizing the main staff of the bank but it will also generate a customer satisfaction.
                            7.3: Implementation Of Personal Policies

       As far as the personal problems of enrollment, promotion, transfer, and training etc
are concerned; the only bone of connection is violation of rules, Nepotism, favoritism,
and barbarism are the catalysts of the evil, which is now-a-days common in all
government controlled organizations with out any exception. This is only possible if all
the employees joint their hands for eradication of these evils. There should be a proper
checking system in the organization to avoid the embazerment of other.
The bank needs to adopt the scientific tools of the personal management like job
description and job analysis which will help in the justified promotion and reward
system. This will also prevent the exploitation of the staff.

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

Salary is the most important thing for staff. The salary packages of the bank should be
make compatible with the packages offered by private banks otherwise bank will loose its
highly qualified staff and creative minds as they may accept the other offer of other banks
for better package.
      All employee of the bank should be channalized in a systematic way for training
courses so as to make sure that every person is getting necessary training and skills on
regular basis. If the required result of the training could not be achieved it will simply
mean the wastage of NBP resources and no organization can afford wastage of its
resources in this era of competition.
                                           7.4: Liberalization

         The age of bureaucracy has gone. Every organization in this modern world is
looking for free and liberal management system where workers and staff members are
given their due part in the decision making of the organization regarding strategies, goals,
and functions of the organization. National bank of Pakistan, if want to meet the
challenges of the modern world must decentralized and deregulate its system and let the
staff to participate in the affairs of the bank. This will produce the environment of the
friendship in the bank and will bring loyalty to the organization.
The unnecessary rule other Head Quarter should be minimized as much as possible. The
branch manager and working staff should be given the authority, which is necessary for
their successful performance, which will bring innovation in the functional area, as many
minds can think more.
                                     7.5: Better Communication

        Communication is the backbone of any organization to run. For satisfactory
function it is necessary that the orders and demands should be properly communicated to
the concerned subordinates. National bank of Pakistan is very weak in communication
skills. Although it is now preparing itself information technology and video conferencing
but still it is too late. It should be implementing immediately.

                                   7.6: Regular Market Research

       It has been suggested that the bank should establish a systematic research system in
the research centers of the bank. Research is required to meet the challenges of newly
emerging environment of competition in the financial market. There is a lot of
uncertainty of future in the world market that can only be handled with efficiency of the
bank continues research of its market.
                                      7.7: Marketing Strategies
      National bank of Pakistan has failed to propagate its services property. It is
suggested that it should apply the strategies where every staff member of the bank is part
of the marketing activities. The same strategy is used in Union Bank where every person
is given the advantage of the bank is part of the marketing activities. The same strategy is
used in Union Bank where is given the advantage of the deposits he introduced. In this
way every person tries his best to elaborate the bank in front of customers and they also
courteous to the customer. The staff should also be given proper training for the purpose.
Another weak point is that does not have any broacher or pamphlet. Marketing material
like this should be kept at a very branch of the bank including the introductory notes of
the new offers and investment packages. The bank should also involve itself in different
Societal marketing is also the most popular and result oriented style of marketing. Every
business organization seems to be the part of this type of marketing but National Bank of
Pakistan does not have any such activities. It is suggested that NBP should perform
society factor in its marketing.
National bank of Pakistan has the advantage of being as government controlled bank and
the common people trust in more than any other private or multinational bank but the
only grievance is that of customer service which if eliminated can do a lot for the bank in
terms of its reputation as well as in terms of money.
      National bank of Pakistan is successful in maintaining of its present status but the
achievement not lies in the staying as a place but there should be innovation and growth.
The officials of national bank of Pakistan are aware of the need and have started a change
program but the pace of the program is very slow which needs improvement.

                              7.8: Minimization Of Losses
          The branches running in losses have been closed but still there are few branches
still running in losses. These branches are mostly in the remote areas of the country and
should be closed down. As a business concern the main objective of the bank is to
minimize the losses and maximize the profits if the bank is successful in doing so it will
be a liability to the bank. The staff working in the braches where the workload is greater
than the staff strength, the staff should be well utilized. The bank should also emphasize
on the establishment of newly emerging industrial areas.
                              7.9: Need To Be Specialized
          Up-till now the bank is working in the environment of general banking which
limited the scope of operation of the bank. Now it is needed to be converted into a
specialized financial institution. It should deal with the various moods if financial
matters. It should offer special scheme of investment for public and it should apply now
means of operation.
                                        ONLINE BANKING

          As mentioned before it is very important for National bank of Pakistan to start
online banking facility to attract more & more potential customers. For this purpose
WAN (Wide Area Network) or dedicated lines can be used. If full online banking cannot
be started only Local Area Network (LAN) should be introduced.

 Credit Cards

         Credit cards are demolished from bank but can see easily that all the good banks
are emphasizing on his facility and they are using it as a marketing tool. National bank of
Pakistan should consider the opportunities and reopen the facility, the facility that will
mark it a first class bank.

 Non-Customer Services

         Non-customer services like remittances, preparing of draft, safe custody holders,
and traveler’s cheque and bond owners are the most important for the bank. The people
seeking these facilities are the potential customers of the bank. These people should be

CECOS University of IT & Emerging Sciences Peshawar Pakistan. Internship report on NBP   By: Imdadulllah

welcomed and treated with due courtesy to pursue them to make the customer of the

 Staff Relationship

         Staff relationship in the branches should be cordial. The senior staff must guide
the juniors should cooperate and listen to the senior. It has been seen that senior and
junior staff does not enjoy cordial relationship. Due to this reason tension and conflicts
prevails in the branch environment. It totally depends on the staff of the bank and how
they maintain a friendly atmosphere in the bank.
Like any other organization in the requirement of the Creative Leadership is also present
in the bank. The leaders and manager of the bank have operational and administrative
skills that are considered as important t survive in the competitive market. Today
everyone needs to differentiate himself from other to attract the market opportunities. So
the bankers of national bank of Pakistan should realize the fact and move according to the
new approach.
The staff of the national bank of Pakistan is not aware of the strategies of the bank and
they are not provided the required information. They should be provided with the copies
of the objectives and strategies. The feedback of the performance i.e. the manual report of
the bank should also be provide to the staff member separately which will help them in
the location of the bank in the business community and they would able to elaborate the
actual position of the bank before the customers. In this regard the achievements should
be highlighted and the deficiencies should be removed.

 ATM Facility

          This is very helpful service for the customer but no ATM is provided in most of
the branches of NBP. So this facility should be availed to attract more & more potential
