After observing and doing the internship I have found the some problems comparing to other private commercial bank (Mutual Trust Bank Ltd, Exim Bank Ltd.) that take places in the banking system. At the age of modern technology computer and online leads the every sphere of lives including banking system but more than half of officers of First Security Islami Bank Ltd are not experts in computer and online system. Its IT department is not so developed and experts like other banks’ IT.

They face some problem due to using differences types of software like Bankultimus, PCbank etc. Few officers are skilled and experienced in banking sector that’s why sometimes they take more times handling tasks owing to handling more tasks. First Security Islami Bank Ltd has brought SMS, Mobile and Internet banking systems as a modern service but it does take any measures to popularize and make strong. Apart from, due to not having own ATM booth, clients are to pay more charge for using others bank’s ATM booth. Normally Accounts Opening section takes more responsibilities without its duties. It is a problem for Accounts Opening section. It does not provide service to bring attention of target customers. Problems aside, First Security Islami Bank Ltd. is collecting more deposit and trying to provide new services to clients to meet their satisfaction which is well for First Security Islami Bank Ltd.

Chapter Two Banking System This Chapter discusses following topics: History of Banking System Banking Scenario in Bangladesh Islamic Banking System History of Islami Banking Chronology of Development

Objectives Principles Characteristics Benefits Islamic Bank in Bangladesh Relevant Laws/ Acts/ Order for Bankers/ Financial Institutions Major Differences between Booth Banking Systems

2.0 Banking System 2.1 History of Banking System When money became an accepted medium of exchange, the need arose to keep the money safe. In addition, some people needed to borrow money. These needs led to the development of banks. The earliest banking records, dated around 2000 B.C., indicate that Babylon had a highly developed banking system. Babylonian banks were not unlike the banks of today, except that you might say they had a monopoly. Many years later, in the sixth century B.C., the first private bank emerged. Like today's bank, it accepted for deposit money on which it paid interest. It also lent money to persons who needed the money for worthwhile purposes and who repaid the borrowed funds with interest. By the fourth century B.C., Greece was the dominant nation in the world. Private and city-state-owned banks existed in the outlying lands of the Greek Empire, but only privately owned banks were allowed in Greece. Government to a great extent regulated those banks; however, Rome then became the dominant empire. Under early Roman law, banks could only be privately owned, but law regulated them. With the fall of the Roman Empire, banking became essentially illegal until the third century A.D. By the fourteenth century, when trade routes were being developed, privately owned banks were once again allowed. And by the fifteenth century, banks were needed to advance the huge sums of money required to send out ships to bring back valuable commodities such as spices, silk and gold. At this time in history, banking was big business.

2.2 Banking Scenario in Bangladesh The banking in Bangladesh has passed four decades through different policy environments and comprises central bank at the apex, nationalized commercial banks (NCBs), private commercial banks (PCBs), foreign commercial banks (FCBs) and specialized financial institutions. In the decade of seventies, in an atmosphere of fully regulated banking, the nationalized commercial banks played the active role in intermediation and allocation of credit along with the specialized financial institutions. The decade of the eighties witnessed the active operation of both the NCBs and PCBs (local and foreign) in the banking sector. Before liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, the total banking system was private owned, urban-based and profit oriented. But after the liberation, the Government of Bangladesh nationalized all the banks operating in Bangladesh in 1972, except a few foreign banks branches. It was due to the economic policy of Pakistan Government that we were having a privatized banking structure, till the independence of Bangladesh in 1971. Therefore, under such a situation, Bangladesh Government had no other alternative but to take up the control and nationalize the enterprises including the banks. Following nationalization, the government also recognized the existing commercial banks into six (6) distinct new banks in the following manner in terms of the Bangladesh Banks (Nationalization) Order, 1972: Existed Bank The National Bank of Pakistan The Habib Bank Ltd. The United Bank Ltd. The Standard Bank Ltd. The Estern Mercantile Bank Ltd. The Estern Banking Corporation Ltd.

2.3 Definition of Islami Banking System An Islamic Banking is a financial institution that operates with the objective to implement and materialize the economic and financial principles of Islam in the banking arena. According to The Organization of Islamic conference (OIC) defined an Islamic Bank as “a financial institution whose statutes, rules and procedures expressly state its commitment to the principles of Islamic Shariah and to the banning of the receipt and payment of interest on any of its operations.”

2.4 History of Islamic Banking Modern banking system was introduced in Muslim countries at a time when they were politically and economically slave to the western world. Western Banks established their branches in the Muslim countries and territories to fulfill requirements of foreign business. The Muslim community generally avoided the foreign banks for religious reasons but with the passage of time, it became more and more difficult to engage in trade and other activities without making use of commercial banks. Even then, a large number of Muslims confined their involvement to transaction activities such as current account or hundred percent cash margin letter of credits. Borrowings from commercial banks or placement the access funds and saving accounts were strictly avoided by practicing Islam in order to keep away from interest which is prohibited by Islam. With the passage of time, however, due to increase in cross-border transactions and other socioeconomic forces are demanding more involvement in national economic and financial activities, avoiding the interaction with the banks became impossible. Local banks were established in Muslim countries (including the names like Muslim Commercial Bank) on the same lines as the

interest-based foreign banks and they began to expand within the country bringing the banking system to more and more people. Governments, businesses and individuals began to transact business with the banks, with or without liking it. This state of affairs drew the attention and concern of Muslim intellectuals which gave emergence to the contemporary Islamic banking. By the midst of the last century, many Muslim countries started their efforts to adopt the Islamic economic and banking systems. Many scholars, economist and experienced bankers came with different solutions to initiate the Islamic banking. Those experiences paved the route for modern Islamic banking. Nowadays Islamic financial institutions (IFIs) are spread all over the world including European countries and the United States. In particular these have their significant presence in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, and other GCC countries, Malaysia, Sudan and Iran.

2.5 Chronology of Islamic Banking Development: •

1940: Deliberations by Islamic Scholar on modalities of Islamic system of financing and banking.

Mid-1940s: Experiment with Islamic Bank in Malaysia, It did not materialize.

Mid-1950s: Experiment with Islamic Bank In Pakistan, It too proved unsuccessful

1963:Ghamr Bank established in Egypt

1970:Deliberations on Islamic Bank in Islamic Conference in Karachi, Makka and London

1975: Islamic Development Bank established in Jeddah

1977:Faisal Islamic Bank established in Egypt and Sudan

1978: Pakistan converted into interest free banking system

1983: Fist Islamic Bank---Islamic Bank Bangladesh Ltd established in Bangladesh

2.6 Objectives of Islamic Banking System We should first try to understand the objectives of Islamic banking, which are as follows: • The objective of Islamic Banking is not only to earn profit, but to do well and bring welfare to the people, Islam upholds the concept that money, income and property belong to Allah and this wealth is to be used for the good of the society. •

It provides Shariah compliant and prudent banking opportunities; that is, banking transactions –in a Halal way: In other words, this is just an effort to avoid Riba and other prohibited elements from commercial and banking transactions, in order to ensure that we do “Nothing-Haram”;

2.7 Principles of Islamic Banking System:

Islamic banking has the same Principles Like conventional banking, that are operates in accordance with the rules of Shariah, known as Fiqh al-Muamalat (Islamic rules on transactions). •

The basic principle of Islamic banking is the sharing of profit and loss and the prohibition of riba (usury).

Common terms used in Islamic banking include profit sharing (Mudharabah), safekeeping (Wadiah), joint venture (Musharakah), cost plus (Murabahah), and leasing (Ijarah).

an Islamic mortgage transaction, instead of loan, banks buy the item itself from the seller, and re-sell it to the buyer at a profit, while allowing the buyer to pay the bank in installments.

There are no additional penalties for late payment. But In order to protect itself against default, the bank asks for strict collateral.

The goods or land is registered to the name of the buyer from the start of the transaction. This arrangement is called Murabaha.

Another approach is EIjara wa EIqtina, which is similar to real estate leasing.

Islamic banks handle loans for vehicles in a similar way (selling the vehicle at a higherthan-market price to the debtor and then retaining ownership of the vehicle until the loan is paid).

If default occurs, both the bank and the borrower receive a proportion of the proceeds from the sale of the property based on each party's current equity. This method allows for floating rates according to the current market rate such as the BLR (base lending rate).

Mudaraba is venture capital funding of an entrepreneur who provides labor while financing is provided by the bank so that both profit and risk are shared. Such participatory arrangements between capital and labor reflect the Islamic view that the borrower must not bear all the risk/cost of a failure, resulting in a balanced distribution of income and not allowing lender to monopolize the economy.

2.8 Characteristics of Islamic Banking System: • • • • • • • • •

It follows balanced and dynamic economic system It is most efficient banking system It runs on as per Islamic Shariah It always avoids interest or Rhiba Islamic system is non-inflationary; this is a very important and fundamental aspect of Islamic banking. In case of Islamic banking system, depositors also bear the risk. Islamic banking cannot invest excess liquid amount in approved securities or other bank crisis due to existence of interest in transaction process. It faces some problems due to interest free banking system. Modes of financing are totally different compared to conventional banking.

• • • • • • • •

It uses Islamic term Inter Bank transaction is profit-loss sharing basis. It invests to stimulate income of poor To ensure social justice and welfare. Friendly and cooperative relationship. Duel target: implementing objectives of Shariah and earning profit. Business policy is socio-economic basis. Integration of ethical and moral values with its banking operation.

2.9 Benefits of Islamic Banking •

Islamic banking and the finance industry is growing at an annual rate of 20%.

International giant banks such as HSBC (HSBC Amanah), Citi Bank (Citi Islamic) and Standard Chartered have already established their Islamic units and functioning in the Middle East region.

Islamic banks are restricted to useful goods and services and refrain from financing alcoholic beverages and tobacco or morally unacceptable services such as casinos and pornography.

Islamic banks do not consider only the credit worthiness and interest rate as standards.

It reduces the social and economic cost of such harmful products and activities.

Islamic banks eliminate the barrier between those who save and those who invest, and bring them closer to the real market.

2.10 Islamic Bank in Bangladesh Bangladesh joints the caravan of the Islamic bank in 1983 when a shariah based bank ---Islamic Bank Bangladesh Ltd was established as a joint venture bank. Since then 6 banks established. One commercial banking ---Exim Bank Ltd previously chartered as conventional interest based bank has switched to Islamic bank. Some bank has also opened separate “Islamic windows” to seek patronage of the people of Bangladesh who by and large attach a stigma to conventional interest based banks. By now the Islamic banks have carved out a nice niche in the banking arena in terms of collecting deposits and providing finances to a large number of entrepreneurs and investors. 2.11 Some Islamic Banking in Bangladesh •

2.14Comparative Analysis of Islamic Banking and Conventional Banking System Islamic Banking system always avoids interest due to restriction of Islam. On the other side; Conventional Banking system considers interest as a profit. So Islamic is more efficient than conventional banking. Commitment: Islamic Banking system is committed to ensure social justice and welfare. On the other side, conventional banking system does not commit to ensure social justice and welfare. Objective: To ensure social welfare and justice by financing under shariah. On the other side, To earn profit by financing, not social justice and wellbeing. Relationship: Between depositors and bank relationship is friendly and cooperative, that’s why, and moral problem is low. On the other side, moral problem is high owing to depositor-creditors relationship. Policy: maximizing wealth by ensuring socio-economic welfare. On the other side, Earning profit of shareholders by implementing policy. Religious Perception: Perception about Islamic banking is positive because of avoiding interest. On the other side, Muslim country has negative perception due to business based on interest. Profit: It is not specific or certain percentages, it totally depends on profit and loss. On contrary, interest is fixed, so, no bearing risk.

Different Types Of Accounts •

Current Account

Al-Wadeeah Current Deposit Account

A current account is a running and active account, which may be operated upon any number of times during a working day. It is purely demand deposit account because the bank is bound to pay the amount to the accountholder on demand at any time within the banking hour. The account holder not gets any interest against their current account

The word “Al-Wadeeah” derived from the Arabic word “Wadium” means ‘Amanat. Amanat means to keep or deposit something to any person or institution for safe preservation maintaining original ownership and bound to return to owner on demand with original shape. The term Al-Wadeeah means deposit of money allowing some body to claim in the account.

In case of Al-Wadiah Deposit, Bank must take permission from owner to invest the fund with other bank’s fund. Because of owner involves neither earning profit nor any loss. So, Banks not only will enjoy 100% profit but also will bear full losses. Account Holder pay fees for maintain the account and other costs.

Savings Bank Account (Conventional) A saving account is meant for the people of the lower and middle classes who wish to save a part of their incomes to meet their future need and intend to earn an income with a fixed rate of interest from their savings, it encourages savings of non-trading persons, institutions, society and clubs etc. The deposits are mostly small amounts.

Mudarabah Savings Deposit Accounts The term ‘Mudaraba’ derived from Arabic word ‘Dard’/ ‘Darbun’ which means “Travel” thus the word ‘Mudarah’ means “Travel” for undertaking business. ‘Mudaraba is a partnership in profit whereby one party provides capital and the other party provides skill and labor. The provider of capital is called “Shahib-al- Mal/Rabbul-Mal” (Owner of the fund) while the provider of skill and labor is called “Mudarib” (organizer/Manager). Depositors will deposit money and bank will invest fund as per Islami Shariah without any intervention of depositors. Depositor will gain profit according to specified Weight age 0.75 and will bear loss at ratio of deposit. The provisional profit will be given two (2) times (June-December) which will be adjusted after the final profit has Calculated at the year end.

Similarly First Security Islami Bank Ltd. Mirpur Branch provides this service under general banking activities but some branches provides it as an activity of foreign exchange department in commercial area.

Local Remittance: When money is sent from one place to another place for the customer is not only important service of banks but also important part of country’s payment system. For this service, people, especially businesspersons can transfer funds from one place to another place very quickly. There are five kinds of techniques for remitting money locally from one place to another place. These are: Pay Order Demand Draft Telegraphic Transfer Telephone Transfer Telegraphic and Telephone Transfer (TT) are almost the same, both are them are known as TT in short.

Chapter Five Problems and Suggestion This Chapter just deals with following topics

Found Problems in FSIBL Some Suggestion for Solution And Conclusion Findings: I have found some problems during Internship period, they are following:


Some branches use PCbank software. Some use Bank-ultimus software. This difference of software creates problem in online transaction.

There is no information desk to inform about banking & services.

SMS,Mobile and Internet banking systems are not upgraded like other commercial banks.

FSIBL Mirpur Branch does not provide DD, TT and so on like other private commercial banks.

FSIBL does not have any specialized marketing team to extend deposit and to loan sanction like private commercial banks such as Dutch-Bangla, Standard Chartert.

FSIBL says it is profit-loss sharing based business but there is a doubt whether it follows that policy.

Their banking process is not competitive with the other private banks like IBBL & Al-Arafa Islami bank.

Incase of large amount ,authoriing by manager or any senior officers is time consuming can dissatisfy the clients.

Without any letter of authorisation cheaque book even statement is provided to others on the part of client with permission of manager or senior officers.

The deposits and investment of FSIBL is comperatively lower than IBBL.


All branches of First Security Islami Bank Ltd. should use same software for avoiding software problems during operating banking activities.

There should hsve information desk to provide information about any service and questions.

Details of Account Holder should be entried & saved properly to avoid any mistake.

In cash section trainned officers should be more employed to accelarate speed of activities.

Account open procedure should be more easy and acceptable.

Every officer should show corporate behavior to every clients.

Skilled & experinced in banking sector such officers should be employed.

bank should provide Demand Draft and Telegraphic Transfer like other commercial banks.

Internet & SMS,Mobile banking should upgraded and develped to popularize.

Every section should accomplish their own activities not depending on other sections.

Bank should provide attractive and acceptable services to clients.

Bank should not provide cheaque book or any statement to others on behalf of customers but letter of authorisation.

Man power is not sufficient in the Mirpur Branch of FSIBL than Ibbl & Al-Arafa Islami Bank.

Conclusion: Banking sector is considered the pillar of the economy.First Security Islami Bank Ltd. is a important member of that pillar .It stsrted banking operation in 1999.After starting the operation Security Islami Bank Ltd. is playing role in the economy of Bangladesh as well as in employment. Security Islami Bank Ltd. is providing difference sort of services what provided by other private commercial banks and it is trying to introduce new banking services under Islami Shariah, rules and regulations of Bangladesh Bank. After all, Security Islami Bank Ltd. has some problems and limitations like other private commercial banks road to providing services such as ATM Booth, some unexperienced and unskilled officers ,corporate manner,weak SMS,Mobile & Internet Banking system,IT networks,proper trainning etc. Ithink that from my personal opinion,Security Islami Bank Ltd. Authority and Management will draw attention to remove promlems & limitation thinking the talks of future.Because by removing the promlems First Security Islami Bank Ltd. will be able to achive customer satisfaction, more profit and more important role in the economy of the country. Without any doubt,it can say that after removing problems First Security Islami Bank Ltd. will meet the demand of customers and will provide qualityful services as well as new services by exercising proper general banking activities.
