Banking Fraud - Prevention and Control Powered By Docstoc
					Banking Fraud is posing threat to Indian Economy. Its vibrant effect can be understood be the fact that in the year

2004 number of Cyber Crime were 347 in India which rose to 481 in 2005 showing an increase of 38.5% while I.P.C.

category crime stood at 302 in 2005 including 186 cases of cyber fraud and 68 cases cyber forgery. Thus it becomes

very important that occurrence of such frauds should be minimized. More upsetting is the fact that such frauds are

entering in Banking Sector as well.


In the present day, Global Scenario Banking System has acquired new dimensions. Banking did spread in India.

Today, the banking system has entered into competitive markets in areas covering resource mobilization, human

resource development, customer services and credit management as well.


Indian's banking system has several outstanding achievements to its credit, the most striking of which is its reach. In

fact, Indian banks are now spread out into the remotest areas of our country. Indian banking, which was operating in

a highly comfortable and protected environment till the beginning of 1990s, has been pushed into the choppy waters

of intense competition.


A sound banking system should possess three basic characteristics to protect depositor's interest and public faith.

Theses are (i) a fraud free culture, (ii) a time tested Best Practice Code, and (iii) an in house immediate grievance

remedial system. All these conditions are their missing or extremely weak in India. Section 5(b) of the Banking

Regulation Act, 1949 defines banking... "Banking is the accepting for the purpose of lending or investment, deposits

of money from the purpose of lending or investment, deposits of money from the public, repayable on demand or

otherwise and withdraw able by cheque, draft, order or otherwise." But if his money has fraudulently been drawn from

the bank the latter is under strict obligation to pay the depositor. The bank therefore has to ensure at all times that the

money of the depositors is not drawn fraudulently. Time has come when the security aspects of the banks have to be

dealt with on priority basis.


The banking system in our country has been taking care of all segments of our socio-economic set up. The Article

contains a discussion on the rise of banking frauds and various methods that can be used to avoid such frauds. A

bank fraud is a deliberate act of omission or commission by any person carried out in the course of banking

transactions or in the books of accounts, resulting in wrongful gain to any person for a temporary period or otherwise,

with or without any monetary loss to the bank. The relevant provisions of Indian Penal Code, Criminal Procedure

Code, Indian Contract Act, and Negotiable Instruments Act relating to banking frauds has been cited in the present

Article.


EVOLUTION OF BANKING SYSTEM IN INDIA


Banking system occupies an important place in a nation's economy. A banking institution is indispensable in a
modern society. It plays a pivotal role in economic development of a country and forms the core of the money market

in an advanced country.
Banking industry in India has traversed a long way to assume its present stature. It has undergone a major structural

transformation after the nationalization of 14 major commercial banks in 1969 and 6 more on 15 April 1980. The

Indian banking system is unique and perhaps has no parallels in the banking history of any country in the world.


RESERVE BANK OF INDIA-ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL OBJECTIVE


The Reserve Bank of India has an important role to play in the maintenance of the exchange value of the rupee in

view of the close interdependence of international trade and national economic growth and well being. This aspect is

of the wider responsibly of the central bank for the maintenance of economic and financial stability. For this the bank

is entrusted with the custody and the management of country's international reserves; it acts also as the agent of the

government in respect of India's membership of the international monetary fund. With economic development the

bank also performs a variety of developmental and promotional functions which in the past were registered being

outside the normal purview of central banking. It also acts an important regulator.


BANK FRAUDS: CONCEPT AND DIMENSIONS


Banks are the engines that drive the operations in the financial sector, which is vital for the economy. With the

nationalization of banks in 1969, they also have emerged as engines for social change. After Independence, the

banks have passed through three stages. They have moved from the character based lending to ideology based

lending to today competitiveness based lending in the context of India's economic liberalization policies and the

process of linking with the global economy.


While the operations of the bank have become increasingly significant banking frauds in banks are also increasing

and fraudsters are becoming more and more sophisticated and ingenious. In a bid to keep pace with the changing

times, the banking sector has diversified it business manifold. And the old philosophy of class banking has been

replaced by mass banking. The challenge in management of social responsibility with economic viability has

increased.


DEFINITION OF FRAUD


Fraud is defined as "any behavior by which one person intends to gain a dishonest advantage over another". In other

words , fraud is an act or omission which is intended to cause wrongful gain to one person and wrongful loss to the

other, either by way of concealment of facts or otherwise.


Fraud is defined u/s 421 of the Indian Penal Code and u/s 17 of the Indian Contract Act. Thus essential elements of

frauds are:


1. There must be a representation and assertion;
2. It must relate to a fact;


3. It must be with the knowledge that it is false or without belief in its truth; and


4. It must induce another to act upon the assertion in question or to do or not to do certain act.


BANK FRAUDS


Losses sustained by banks as a result of frauds exceed the losses due to robbery, dacoity, burglary and theft-all put

together. Unauthorized credit facilities are extended for illegal gratification such as case credit allowed against pledge

of goods, hypothecation of goods against bills or against book debts. Common modus operandi are, pledging of

spurious goods, inletting the value of goods, hypothecating goods to more than one bank, fraudulent removal of

goods with the knowledge and connivance of in negligence of bank staff, pledging of goods belonging to a third party.

Goods hypothecated to a bank are found to contain obsolete stocks packed in between goods stocks and case of

shortage in weight is not uncommon.


An analysis made of cases brings out broadly the under mentioned four major elements responsible for the

commission of frauds in banks.


1. Active involvement of the staff-both supervisor and clerical either independent of external elements or in

connivance with outsiders.


2. Failure on the part of the bank staff to follow meticulously laid down instructions and guidelines.


3. External elements perpetuating frauds on banks by forgeries or manipulations of cheques, drafts and other

instruments.


4. There has been a growing collusion between business, top banks executives, civil servants and politicians in

power to defraud the banks, by getting the rules bent, regulations flouted and banking norms thrown to the winds.


FRAUDS-PREVENTION AND DETECTION


A close study of any fraud in bank reveals many common basic features. There may have been negligence or

dishonesty at some stage, on part of one or more of the bank employees. One of them may have colluded with the

borrower. The bank official may have been putting up with the borrower's sharp practices for a personal gain. The

proper care which was expected of the staff, as custodians of banks interest may not have been taken. The bank's

rules and procedures laid down in the Manual instructions and the circulars may not have been observed or may

have been deliberately ignored.
Bank frauds are the failure of the banker. It does not mean that the external frauds do not defraud banks. But if the

banker is upright and knows his job, the task of defrauder will become extremely difficult, if not possible.


Detection of Frauds


Despite all care and vigilance there may still be some frauds, though their number, periodicity and intensity may be

considerably reduced. The following procedure would be very helpful if taken into consideration:


1. All relevant data-papers, documents etc. Should be promptly collected. Original vouchers or other papers forming

the basis of the investigation should be kept under lock and key.


2. All persons in the bank who may be knowing something about the time, place a modus operandi of the fraud

should be examined and their statements should be recorded.


3. The probable order of events should thereafter be reconstructed by the officer, in his own mind.


4. It is advisable to keep the central office informed about the fraud and further developments in regard thereto.


Classification of Frauds and Action Required by Banks


The Reserve Bank of India had set-up a high level committee in 1992 which was headed by Mr. A... Ghosh, the then

Dy. Governor Reserve Bank of India to inquire into various aspects relating to frauds malpractice in banks. The

committee had noticed/observed three major causes for perpetration of fraud as given hereunder:


1. Laxity in observance of the laid down system and procedures by operational and supervising staff.


2. Over confidence reposed in the clients who indulged in breach of trust.


3. Unscrupulous clients by taking advantages of the laxity in observance of established, time tested safeguards also

committed frauds.


In order to have uniformity in reporting cases of frauds, RBI considered the question of classification of bank frauds

on the basis of the provisions of the IPC.

Given below are the Provisions and their Remedial measures that can be taken.


1. Cheating (Section 415, IPC)


Remedial Measures.
The preventive measures in respect of the cheating can be concentrated on cross-checking regarding identity,

genuineness, verification of particulars, etc. in respect of various instruments as well as persons involved in

encashment or dealing with the property of the bank.


2. Criminal misappropriation of property (Section 403 IPC).


Remedial Measure


Criminal misappropriation of property, presuppose the custody or control of funds or property, so subjected, with that

of the person committing such frauds. Preventive measures, for this class of fraud should be taken at the level the

custody or control of the funds or property of the bank generally vests. Such a measure should be sufficient, it is

extended to these persons who are actually handling or having actual custody or control of the fund or movable

properties of the bank.


3. Criminal breach of trust (Section 405, IPC)


Remedial Measure


Care should be taken from the initial step when a person comes to the bank. Care needs to be taken at the time of

recruitment in bank as well.


4. Forgery (Section 463, IPC)


Remedial Measure


Both the prevention and detection of frauds through forgery are important for a bank. Forgery of signatures is the

most frequent fraud in banking business. The bank should take special care when the instrument has been presented

either bearer or order; in case a bank pays forged instrument he would be liable for the loss to the genuine costumer.


5. Falsification of accounts (Section 477A)


Remedial Measure


Proper diligence is required while filling of forms and accounts. The accounts should be rechecked on daily basis.


6. Theft (Section 378, IPC)


Remedial Measures


Encashment of stolen' cheque can be prevented if the bank clearly specify the age, sex and two visible identify action

marks on the body of the person traveler's cheques on the back of the cheque leaf. This will help the paying bank to
easily identify the cheque holder. Theft from lockers and safe deposit vaults are not easy to commit because the

master-key remains with the banker and the individual key of the locker is handed over to the costumer with due

acknowledgement.


7. Criminal conspiracy (Section 120 A, IPC)


In the case of State of Andhra Pradesh v. IBS Prasad Rao and Other, the accused, who were clerks in a cooperative

Central Bank were all convicted of the offences of cheating under Section 420 read along with Section 120 A. all the

four accused had conspired together to defraud the bank by making false demand drafts and receipt vouchers.


8. Offences relating to currency notes and banks notes (Section 489 A-489E, IPC)

These sections provide for the protection of currency-notes and bank notes from forgery. The offences under section

are:


(a) Counterfeiting currency notes or banks.


(b) Selling, buying or using as genuine, forged or counterfeit currency notes or bank notes. Knowing the same to be

forged or counterfeit.


(c) Possession of forged or counterfeit currency notes or bank-notes, knowing or counterfeit and intending to use the

same as genuine.


(d) Making or passing instruments or materials for forging or counterfeiting currency notes or banks.


(e) Making or using documents resembling currency-notes or bank notes.


Most of the above provisions are Cognizable Offences under Section 2(c) of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973.


FRAUD PRONE AREAS IN DIFFERENT ACCOUNTS

LEGAL REGIME TO CONTROL BANK FRAUDS


Frauds constitute white-collar crime, committed by unscrupulous persons deftly advantage of loopholes existing in

systems/procedures. The ideal situation is one there is no fraud, but taking ground realities of the nation's

environment and human nature's fragility, an institution should always like to keep the overreach of frauds at the

minimum occurrence level.

committed, was in charge of, and was responsible to, the company for the conduct of the business of the company,

as well as the company, shall be deemed to be guilty of the offence and shall be liable to be proceeded against and

punished accordingly.


SECURITY REGIME IN BANKING SYSTEM


Security implies sense of safety and of freedom from danger or anxiety. When a banker takes a collateral security,

say in the form of gold or a title deed, against the money lent by him, he has a sense of safety and of freedom from

anxiety about the possible non-payment of the loan by the borrower. These should be communicated to all strata of

the organization through appropriate means. Before staff managers should analyze current practices. Security

procedure should be stated explicitly and agreed upon by each user in the specific environment. Such practices

ensure information security and enhance availability. Bank security is essentially a defense against unforced attacks

by thieves, dacoits and burglars.


PHYSICAL SECURITY MEASURES-CONCEPT
A large part of banks security depends on social security measures. Physical security measures can be defined as

those specific and special protective or defensive measures adopted to deter, detect, delay, defend and defeat or to

perform any one or more of these functions against culpable acts, both covert and covert and acclamations natural

events. The protective or defensive, measures adopted involve construction, installation and deployment of

structures, equipment and persons respectively.


The following are few guidelines to check malpractices:


1. To rotate the cash work within the staff.


2. One person should not continue on the same seat for more than two months.


3. Daybook should not be written by the Cashier where an other person is available to the job


4. No cash withdrawal should be allowed within passbook in case of withdrawal by pay order.


5. The branch manager should ensure that all staff members have recorder their presence in the attendance

registrar, before starting work.


Execution of Documents


1. A bank officer must adopt a strict professional approach in the execution of documents. The ink and the pen used

for the execution must be maintained uniformly.


2. Bank documents should not be typed on a typewriter for execution. These should be invariably handwritten for

execution.


3. The execution should always be done in the presence of the officer responsible for obtain them,

4. The borrowers should be asked to sign in full signatures in same style throughout the documents.


5. Unless there is a specific requirement in the document, it should not be got attested or witnessed as such

attestation may change the character of the instruments and the documents may subject to ad volrem stamp duty.


6. The paper on which the bank documents are made should be pilfer proof. It should be unique and available to the

banks only.


7. The printing of the bank documents should have highly artistic intricate and complex graphics.


8. The documents executed between Banker and Borrowers must be kept in safe custody,


CHANGES IN LEGISLATIONS AFTER ELECTRONIC TRANSACTIONS

4. Section 94 of the Reserve Bank of India Act, 1939 shall be amended to facilitate electronic fund transfers between

the financial institutions and the banks. A new clause (pp) has been inserted in Section 58(2).


RECENT TRENDS OF BANKING SYSTEM IN INDIA


In the banking and financial sectors, the introduction of electronic technology for transactions, settlement of accounts,

book-keeping and all other related functions is now an imperative. Increasingly, whether we like it or not, all banking

transactions are going to be electronic. The thrust is on commercially important centers, which account for 65 percent

of banking business in terms of value. There are now a large number of fully computerized branches across the

country.


A switchover from cash-based transactions to paper-based transactions is being accelerated. Magnetic Ink character

recognition clearing of cheques is now operational in many cities, beside the four metro cities. In India, the design,

management and regulation of electronically-based payments system are becoming the focus of policy deliberations.

The imperatives of developing an effective, efficient and speedy payment and settlement systems are getting sharper

with introduction of new instruments such as credit cards, telebanking, ATMs, retail Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

and Electronic Clearing Services (ECS). We are moving towards smart cards, credit and financial Electronic Data

Interchange (EDI) for straight through processing.


Financial Fraud (Investigation, Prosecution, Recovery and Restoration of property) Bill, 2001


Further the Financial Fraud (Investigation, Prosecution, Recovery and Restoration of property) Bill, 2001 was

introduced in Parliament to curb the menace of Bank Fraud. The Act was to prohibit, control, investigate financial

frauds; recover and restore properties subject to such fraud; prosecute for causing financial fraud and matters

connected therewith or incidental thereto.


Under the said act the term Financial Fraud has been defined as under:


Section 512 - Financial Fraud


Financial frauds means and includes any of the following acts committed by a person or with his connivance, or by
his agent, in his dealings with any bank or financial institution or any other entity holding public funds;
1. The suggestion, as a fact, of that which is not true, by one who does not believe it to be true;


2. The active concealment of a fact by one having knowledge or belief of the fact;


3. A promise made with out any intention of performing it;


4. Any other act fitted to deceive;


5. Any such act or omission as the law specially declares to be fraudulent.

Provided that whoever acquires, possesses or transfers any proceeds of financial fraud or enters into any transaction

which is related to proceeds of fraud either directly or indirectly or conceals or aids in the concealment of the

proceeds of financial fraud, commits financial fraud.


513(a) - Punishment for Financial Fraud


Whoever commits financial fraud shall be: (a) Punished with rigorous imprisonment for a term, which may extend to

seven years and shall also be liable to fine.


(b)Whoever commits serious financial fraud shall be punished with rigorous imprisonment for a term which may

extend to ten years but shall not be less than five years and shall also be liable for fine up to double the amount

involved in such fraud.


Provided that in both (a) and (b) all funds, bank accounts and properties acquired using such funds subjected to the

financial fraud as may reasonably be attributed by the investigating agency shall be recovered and restored to the

rightful owner according to the procedure established by law.


CONCLUSION


The Indian Banking Industry has undergone tremendous growth since nationalization of 14 banks in the year 1969.

There has an almost eight times increase in the bank branches from about 8000 during 1969 to mote than 60,000

belonging to 289 commercial banks, of which 66 banks are in private sector.


It was the result of two successive Committees on Computerization (Rangarajan Committee) that set the tone for

computerization in India. While the first committee drew the blue print in 1983-84 for the mechanization and

computerization in banking industry, the second committee set up in 1989 paved the way for integrated use of

telecommunications and computers for applying technogical breakthroughs in banking sector.


However, with the spread of banking and banks, frauds have been on a constant increase. It could be a natural
corollary to increase in the number of customers who are using banks these days. In the year 2000 alone we have

lost Rs 673 crores in as many as 3,072 number of fraud cases. These are only reported figures. Though, this is
0.075% of Rs 8,96,696 crores of total deposits and 0.15% of Rs 4,44,125 crores of loans & advances, there are any

numbers of cases that are not reported. There were nearly 65,800 bank branches of a total of 295 commercial banks

in India as on June 30, 2001 reporting a total of nearly 3,072 bank fraud cases. This makes nearly 10.4 frauds per

bank and roughly 0.47 frauds per branch.


An Expert Committee on Bank Frauds (Chairman: Dr.N.L.Mitra) submitted its Report to RBI in September 2001. The

Committee examined and suggested both the preventive and curative aspects of bank frauds.


The important recommendations of the Committee include:


o A need for including financial fraud as a criminal offence;


o Amendments to the IPC by including a new chapter on financial fraud;


o Amendments to the Evidence Act to shift the burden of proof on the accused person;


o Special provision in the Cr. PC for properties involved in the Financial Fraud.


o Confiscating unlawful gains; and preventive measures including the development of Best Code Procedures by

banks and financial institutions.


Thus it can be concluded that following measures should necessarily be adopted by the Ministry of Finance in order

to reduce cases of Fraud.


o There must be a Special Court to try financial fraud cases of serious nature.


o The law should provide separate structural and recovery procedure. Every bank must have a domestic enquiry

officer to enquire about the civil dimension of fraud.


o A fraud involving an amount of ten crore of rupees and above may be considered serious and be tried in the

Special Court.


The Twenty-ninth Report of the Law Commission had dealt some categories of crimes one of which is "offences

calculated to prevent and obstruct the economic development of the country and endanger its economic health."

Offences relating to Banking Fraud will fall under this category. The most important feature of such offences is that

ordinarily they do not involve an individual direct victim. They are punishable because they harm the whole society. It

is clear that money involved in Bank belongs to public. They deposit there whole life' security in Banks and in case of

Dacoity or Robbery in banks the public will be al lost. Thus it is important that sufficient efforts should be taken in this
regard.
There exists a new kind of threat in cyber world. Writers are referring it as "Salami Attack" under this a special

software is used for transferring the amount from the account of the individual. Hence the culprits of such crimes

should be found quickly and should be given strict punishment. Moreover there is requirement of more number of IT

professionals who will help in finding a solution against all these security threats.
