Investment into the capital market
Introduction of capital market accounts (under process)
DIBPL’s involvement in capital markets is expected to increase its earnings, which would result in better returns offered to account holders.
DIBPL have a different department so I am going to explain the performance of every department.
1: CASH DEPARTMENT
Cash department performs the following functions
The money, which either comes or goes out from the bank, its record should be kept. Cash department performs this function. The deposits of all customers of the bank are controlled by means of ledger accounts. Every customer has its own ledger account and has separate ledger cards.
It is a banker’s primary contract to repay money received for this customer’s account usually by honoring his cheques.
Types of Cheques
Some specific types of cheques are being entertained in the clearing department of DIBPL.
By local cheques we mean collection of cheques from the banks which are the members of the clearinghouse and which are located within the city.
OUT STATION CHEQUE
By out station cheques we mean collection of cheques from the banks which are situated outside the city. It means that presenting bank and the bank on which the cheques is drawn are not situated in the same city.
4: CLEARANCE DEPARTMENT
A clearing house is an association of commercial banks set up in given locality for the purpose of interchange and settlement of credit claims. The function of clearinghouse is performed by the central bank of a country by tradition or by law. In Pakistan, the clearing system is operated by the SBP. If SBP has no office at a place, then NBP, as a representative of SBP act as a clearinghouse.
I got the internship opportunities in DIB Abbottabad branch. The duration of my internship is of six weeks stated from 1st April 20011 to 15 May 2011. During the internship period I was rotated detailed on different desks and almost all the departments but the important departments in which I stay more are as under:- a. Operation department (General Banking) from 1 st Apr to 16 Apr 2011. b. Customer of Services department from
The different departments in General banking are:-
(1) Account Opening (including cheque book issuance)
(2) Cash department.
(4) On line banking
In General banking I was rotated in Account opening and Clearing department..
The clearing department consists of OBC, LBC and IBC. My job was to prepare Inter Branch Credit Advices (IBCAs) and inter cities and for areas outside them, I do/prepared Outward Bills for Collection (OBC), Inward Bills for Collection (IBC), LBC entries in their respective registers, and stamp the cheques.
(1) Inward Bills for Collection (IBC) means when an account holder of DIB Branch makes a cheque payment to a person who has an account in other bank, that bank presents the cheque to DIBL for payment. The cheque then becomes IBC for DIBL as other bank presents it for payment. It is called IBC because the bill (cheque) comes in the bank premises for clearing/payment.
(2) OBC means ‘outward bills for collection’. When an account holder of DIBL presents a cheque of other bank along with the deposit slip, DIBL presents it in that bank for payment. This cheque is OBC for DIBL because it presents the cheque to other bank. If the cheque is OK, that bank credits DIBL Head Office account, on realization DIBL branch debits Head Office Branch and credits account holder’s account.
(3) The cheques presented in OBC/IBC for collection can be of other bank and can be of any other branch of DIBL. LBC stands for ‘local bills for collection’. It is same as OBC. The only difference is that OBC is for presentation of cheques outside Abbottabad area. LBC is for cheque clearing within Abbottabad. It is free of charge. OBC is for presentation and payment of cheques outside 31 Abbottabad. The bank debits courier charges from customer’s account. Before the entries of IBC, OBC and LBC are made in their respective journals, the cheques representing them are stamped. IBC cheques are stamped with DIBL crossing and clearing stamp at the front. At the back, it is stamped with a stamp showing that ‘payees account will be payees account will be credited on realization’. The crossing stamp shows that the cheque is property of DIBL Branch. Clearing stamp shows that the cheque has been presented for clearing. OBC and LBC cheques are stamped with a crossing and a stamp having a blank space for OBC/LBC number (which is seen from register) at the front and at the back there is a stamp showing that ‘payees account will be payees account will be credited on realization’.
(4) After stamping the cheques their entries are made in their respective journals. OBC and LBC numbers, name of bank, the amount of collection, cheque number (if it is a pay order then ‘Pay order” is written, date on which the cheque was received and the date when payees account is credited, name of payee account number of payer and payee are entered in OBC and LBC journals respectively. In IBC register, name of payer and payee, cheque number, account number of payer, name of bank that ACBL in this case, IBCA number and date of payment are entered.
In account opening, I was supposed to help the customers in filling account-opening forms. Besides the table of person dealing in account opening, first I was supposed to make sets of account opening forms. Sets are made by attaching the account opening form, cheque books requisition and specimen signature card then arrange these forms on side table along with application forms for Debit card, give the form to customers when they ask and help them fill the form. Specimen signature card is a yellow colored card that verifies signatures when a cheque is cashed or when a cheque books requisition is given.
I also took customer calls. Different people come and call us and ask for their account statements. I used to give printing command on computer and then bring the printed statements and handed over it to the customer. For an important client it was supposed to be in an envelope. The reason for my bringing the statement and handing over to the customer was to observe the difference between customer handling of ordinary and important clients. In a day there used to be at least fifty statements. I was also supposed to get the heavy amount cheques verified by Manager Operations.
Cheque Book Issuance
Cheque-book issuance was done during fifth week only. Customers give their chequebook requisition to operational manager. He verifies the signature from computer signs it and gives the requisition to Sir Aqeel. Minimum number of leaves in a chequebook is 10 and maximum is 100. On the requisition account number, title of account and numbers of leaves required in a chequebook are specified. Chequebooks normally have 10, 25 .50 and 100 leaves. Each type of cheque has its own register. Chequebooks also have their own series that have starting and ending numbers. Those series numbers along with account number, title of account and number of leaves are entered in their respective registers. Account number and title of account are written on cover of chequebook. Numbers of account number stamp are adjusted according to mentioned account number and bottom of each cheque is stamped. In General banking, this is the most sensitive job. A single mistake can cause a person to lose its job.
This is the only job that I did regardless of the department worked. The photocopied items included national identity cards, student identity cards, cheques, letters, defense saving certificates and profit coupons.
Ratios provide the means of showing the relationship, which exists between, figures of the Balance Sheets and Income Statements. The analysis is undertaken to assess important characteristics of business like liquidity, solvency and profitability. A study of these aspects enables drawing conclusions as to financial requirements and capabilities of business units. Ratios may be classified in a number of ways to suit any particular purpose. Different kinds of ratios are selected for different types of situations. Some of the ratios calculated for DIBPL are given below.
Comparison gives an indication of the short-term debt paying ability of an entity. Since a bank is also a business firm so to maintain adequate liquidity is also crucial to carry out business activity.
It is used to measure the ability of an enterprise to meet its current liabilities out of current assets.
Current Ratio = Current Assets / Current Liabilities
Current Ratio = 1.1
The current ratio of DIBPL, for the year 2017, is 1.1 times of current liabilities. It is good to meet the short-term obligations, when compared with the current ratio 2016, which is 1.08 times of current liabilities. The company should maintain minimum limit of current ratio for Bank i.e.1.
Net Working Capital
Working capital compares current assets to current liabilities, and serves as the liquid reserve available to satisfy contingencies and uncertainties. A high working capital balance is mandated if the entity is unable to borrow on short notice. The ratio indicates the short-term liquidity of a business and in determining if a firm can pay its current liabilities when due.
Net Working Capital = Current Assets – Current Liabilities
= 172293756 — 158124841
Net Working Capital= 14168915
Net working capital of 2017 increases from year 2015. This is safety cushion to creditors. The volume of net working capital is showing positive trends.
Solvency is a company’s ability to meet its long-term obligations as they become due. An analysis of solvency concentrates on the long-term financial and operating structure of the business.
Debt to Asset / Debt Ratio
Provides information about the company’s ability to absorb asset reductions arising from losses without endangering the interest of creditors.
Debt Ratio = Total Liabilities / Total Assets
Debt Ratio = 0.9177
Creditors prefer low debt ratio, debt ratio shows that how much asset the company has to honor their obligations. This ratio is increased from 0.9177 to 0.8292. This is a good for the company because the company has 1 asset to pay 0.8292 debts.
Debt to Equity Ratio
Indicates how well creditors are protected in case of the company’s insolvency. The debt to equity is a significant measure of solvency since a high degree of debt in a capital structure may make it difficult for the company to meet interest chargers and principal payments at maturity.
Debt to Equity Ratio = Total Debt / Total Stockholder’s Equity
Debt to equity ratio is the relationship borrowed funds and owner’s capital and equity multiplier is the relationship between total assets and total equity. But it is good that the ratio is decreasing in 2017 than 2016. The overall leverage position is showing better trend as compare to previous years.
This ratio shows that what percentage of net profit to the total income is.
Net Profit Margin
This ratio measures the firm’s profitability of sales/ interest earned after taking account of all expenses and income taxes. This ratio can be calculated as:
Net Profit Margin = Net Profit / Revenue *100
From the calculation it is very much clear that the performance of DIBPL is very good still to 2016. And the trend is upward. It tells us a firm’s net income per rupee of revenue. As the trend is upward it shows the high profits in revenue per rupee in case of DIBPL. It is because of high advances the DIBPL has given to the people but in 2017 the ratio trend is downward which not good for DIBPL.
Return on Equity
Measures the income earned on the shareholder’s investment in the business.
Return on Equity = Net Income / Average Total Equity
It is decreasing every year with different rate. This condition is not good for DIBPL because every investor want to earn high income on his investment.
Return on Total Assets
Measures the company’s ability to utilize its assets to create profits.
Return of Total Assets = Net Income / Average Total Assets *100
The results show that the Return on Asset are decreased which show that the DIBPL Assets are not properly utilize in 2017 or may be there are no proper environment for Banking sector because in 2016 Pakistan face the economic crisi
Investment to Asset Ratio
Investment to Total Assets = Investment / Total Asset
This ratio indicates that out of total asset how much bank utilize its asset for further investing. This ratio in decrease in 2017, which is not useful for the bank to enhance its revenues.
Advances to Deposit Ratio
Advances to Deposit Ratio = Total Advances / Total Deposit
Loans or advances are the major assets of a bank while deposits are major liabilities of a bank. Higher ratio shows the better solvency of bank.
Cash to Deposit Ratio
Cash to Deposit Ratio = Cash / Deposit
This ratio shows that how much cash you have to pay the liabilities (deposits). As this ratio show that company has fewer amounts of cash than deposits. It also indicates that bank is investing so the bank is enhancing its business. But at the same time it could be risk for bank for liquidation.
Equity to Assets
Equity to Assets = Equity / Total Assets
This ratio shows the position of equity in total assets of business. This ratio is in increasing trend. But the bank should increase its equity by increasing the wealth of shareholders.
Equity to Deposits
Equity to Deposit = Equity / Deposits
This ratio shows that how much equity part is there in total structure. The capital advocacy requirement is 28%. The bank was not fulfilling the requirement in 2016 ; 2017 but now bank has 31.32%, which is good.
Earning Per Share
Earning Per Share = Net Income / No of Ordinary Shares
As their earnings per common share is good year by year it mean that results of the ratio indicate that firm has paid a handsome return on investment showing the profit generations. Because the company’s net income is increasing gradually. As shown above the bank basic earning per share is increasing due to increase in net income. This shows how mush profit each share has earned in any particular year. It is most important ratio for peoples who decide about investing their money. Although it decreased in 2017 but the overall performance is good.
Return on Total Investment
Measures the income earned on the shareholder’s investment in the business.
Return on Investment = Net Income / Total Investment
It is decreasing every year with different rate. This condition is not good for DIBPL because every investor want to earn high income on his investment.
Return on Fixed Assets
Measures the company’s ability to utilize its fixed assets to create profits.
Return on Fixed Assets = Net Income / Average Fixed Assets *100
The results show that the Return on Asset are decreased which show that the DIBPL Assets are not properly utilize in 2017 or may be there are no proper environment for Banking sector because in 2016 Pakistan face the economic crisis its assets to create profits.

RECOMMENDATIONS AND SUGGESTIONS
Here I am giving some suggestions, which in my view can add some input for efficiency and better performance of DIBPL as an organization in general and F-10 Markaz Branch in Particular
The recommendations are as follows:
In my opinion the process of a transaction should be short in order in save time for both customers and the bank.

It is recommended that proper training be provided to the staff members that will ultimately increase the performance of Bank over all.
It is suggested that promotion be given to the staff in due time and on the basis of performance to provide job satisfaction.
The bank should spend more on renovation of the branches to improve environment and atmosphere to attract the customers.

The Bank should introduce the computers software to cope the heavy load of work and better control.
Extra counters should be established in order to facilitate during the rush days the difficulties faced by the bank staff as well as the customers.
All Branches of the Bank must be online.
All the departments should be established separately.
Bank can increase its profit ratio by reducing extra expenditures and to enhance the volume of advanced especially retail loans.
I done internship, I recommend that security level in the bank should be enhanced especially where I got internship and operation of Mobile phones must not be allowed inside the Bank.
Bank should take step to establish separate counters for the old age employees and pensioners.
The Bank should locate new market for its operational activities in the country as well as abroad.
The Bank should increase profit rate on deposits and saving schemes especially forpensioners and old age citizens.
For improvement of internal control and system the compliance wing and surprise inspection system should work more effectively.
To avoid complaints and leaving the bank job number of staff should be enhanced and their salaries should be leveled to the private/multinational banks.
Double shift system should be introduced to improve attitude and behavior of the employees.
Payment of salaries should be made separately to accommodate the valued customers and depositors
For collection of utility bills i.e. Electricity bills, Telephone bills, Water and Gas bills separate cash receipt counter must be established.
Procedure of receiving loans should be easy and short time to facilitate the borrowers and enhance the profitability of the Bank

While the head office specifies the whole procedure of function and operations. This procedure has been modernized with the passage of time with a view to streamline the approach and underlying procedure for effective overhauling of its own capabilities so as to bring them at par with international practices.
There are people who are motivated towards their work but on the whole, it seems like employees do not work on time and enjoys wasting their time, which is a big hurdle in its way to progress. Also working at the bank, I also found out that all the departments are not linked together. Employees usually hide their work from other employees as its match going on and whoever does the best would be awarded. That should not be the case. All the departments should work as team not as individuals, so that the whole branch would get benefit out of it. So there is a lack of teamwork, also due to this weakness of the branch, its customers are not satisfied. I talked to many clients of the bank but most of them were not satisfied with the services provided specially in the departments namely Account department, Cash department and Bill collection section. So I would suggest to the employees to work whole- heartedly and show keen interest in their work.
