Remittance of expatriate customers has always been contributing towards continued success of the Bank in deposit mobilization which, in turn, helped accelerate its investment operations. Besides, Foreign Exchange portfolio of the Bank has been quite phenomenal due to substantial inflow of Foreign Currency against remittance of Bangladeshi expatriates. In fine, Foreign Remittance helped consolidate the Bank’s deposit base, expand investment operation, finance import business and earn huge income from ancillary business and exchange gain. Since its inception, IBBL has been maintaining a predominant position among contemporary Banks in this field. Over the last few years, IBBL is holding the 1 st position among Private Commercial Banks in respect of remittance handling while it maintained 2 nd position among all the banks (both NCBs & PCBs) in the year 2008. To facilitate remittance of Bangladeshi expatriates around the globe, Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited has so far established Taka Drawing/Remittance Arrangement with 43 Exchange Houses/Banks in different countries. Besides, we have signed Agreement with 5 institutions and obtained Bangladesh Bank approval for establishing such arrangement with 6 Exchange Houses while 3 other proposal have been sent to Bangladesh Bank and 22 more are under process and correspondence. Apart from the Taka Drawing system, Bangladeshis living abroad may send money in Foreign Currency through our NOSTRO correspondents. Due to widening the network and coverage, strengthening marketing drives and restructuring IBW with formation of new Divisions for Remittance as per Remittance Policy of the Bank, the overall growth of foreign Remittances has been increased quite satisfactorily.

It is seen that half yearly total remittance up to June 06 stood at Tk. 23189 million which is almost equivalent to the yearly remittance of 2007 (Tk. 23669 million). The growth as on 30 th June, 2009 is 40% over a higher amount of base figure in corresponding period of 2008. It may be mentioned that usually we receive highest amount of remittance during the Eid ul Fitr and Eid ul Azha each year. Since both the occasions will be observed during the 2 nd half of the year, we hope that volume and growth of remittance will be higher in remaining months. Moreover, we have established Taka Drawing arrangement with some new Exchange Houses which are expected to go in operation in next few months and would contribute in the remittance flow of the year.

Recent Developments in Remittance handling activities Adopted Remittance Policy With a view to utilizing the available strengths and deriving the benefits out of opportunities, IBBL has formulated a Remittance Policy containing strategies, action plan & a perspective plan for mobilizing/handling remittance which has been approved by the Board. Strengthened Customer Service Deptt Customer Service Cell at IBW has been upgraded to a Deptt. For meeting queries/complaints of expatriates & Exchange Houses. Besides, all Branches have been instructed through a circular to form a Customer Service Cell/Desk/Deptt & designate specific officials for handling expatriate customers. Offering Competitive Exchange Rate Exchange Houses have always been requesting for market competitive rate for cover fund against their Drawings. Upon establishment of Dealing Room at IBW, we update the rate daily while those Exchange Houses are funding through direct dealing and receive best rate prevailing in the inter bank market. Observance of Customer Service Month During “The Service Month� 06 observed by the Bank , IBW issued a separate circular giving detailed guidelines as to ensure better services to Expatriate customers and taking steps for mobilization of foreign remittance specially during the month. Utilizing RDS officials for remittance mobilization In order to increase the expatriate customer base and mobilize deposit through foreign remittance, RDS officials have been engaged recently. We hope to widen our remittance base in remote areas with the participators of grass root level employees of RDS. Introduction of Instant Cash Payment Arrangement We have recently made arrangement for Instant Cash Payment with some renowned Exchange Houses which will be in full operation from our Branches very soon. Officials from different Branches have already been trained by IBW in co-operation with UAE Exchange Centre Dhaka Office.


Automation of Remittance operation IBW has taken steps to automate remittance of IBBL within shortest possible time. In this process, payment orders are electronically printed from eibs program and similar developments are under process of completion. Strengthening Remittance Distribution Hub IBW with the help of ICTD has taken various steps for capacity building of remittance handling officials working at Remittance Distribution Hub in Local Office through updating eibs and providing necessary logistics and support. Shifting of Remittance Service Operation from Local Office to Head Office IBW is actively working on the different aspects of shifting remittance handling service from Local Office to Head Office. We have chalked out a layout for manpower, logistics, space and the other requirement for shifting the operation. New Coverage Countries under Remittance Arrangement Besides, KSA and other Gulf countries, there are some other countries where Bangladeshis live and work, in good numbers. To fetch remittance from those countries we have recently made arrangement in new areas namely Canada, Italy, Korea, Greece, Malaysia. Moreover, we are trying to establish such arrangement in countries like South Africa, France, Singapore, etc. Arrangement in Malaysia A good number of Bangladeshis have been working in Malaysia. As there is no Exchange House in that country, we could not make any drawing arrangement for easy remittance of Bangladeshi expatriates in Malaysia. However, while attending a training program, the EVP, IBW visited 5 (five) reputed Banks in Malaysia and had fruitful discussion on establishment of remittance arrangement. Consequently, we signed an Agreement with Bank Islam Malaysia Berhad on 19th April 2009. Besides, Bank Muamalat has agreed to have similar arrangement with our Bank. We are also corresponding with May Bank, Bumiputra-


Commerce Bank Berhad, RHB Bank Berhad and Am Bank in Malaysia and hope to receive positive results soon. Visit for Mobilization of Remittance A detailed memo on “Visit Plan 2009 for mobilizing foreign remittance” containing the importance of countries in terms of remittance receipt and number of Bangladeshi expatriates was placed before the EC and the Board. As part of remittance mobilization, our honorable Directors and Executives have been visiting remittance source countries. IBW arranged appointments with Exchange Houses, gathering of Tellers and Expatriates and sent different gift items, Account Opening Form, Publicity Materials on the occasion of delegates visits abroad. Single Country Trade Fair IBBL has participated in Bangladesh Single Country Trade Fair organized jointly by Embassy of Bangladesh in KSA and Bangladesh Business Committee held in Riyadh on May 25 to 28, 2009. IBBL stall in the Fair attracted a good number of visitors and there was a huge response and impact on the expatriates in KSA. We sent different brochures, leaflets, festoons and promotional materials for distribution among Bangladeshis. Placement of New Representatives in UAE IBBL made special arrangement with UAE Exchange under which they have offered to take 3 (three) Representatives from our bank at their cost to be stationed at Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. The nominated officials are expected to proceed to UAE very shortly and we hope that there will be a break through in remittance from UAE upon their deputation.

Promotional Activities IBBL arranged wide coverage in print media on the establishment of remittance arrangement with different Banks and Exchange houses which definitely helped increase bank’s image among people in general.


Conference and Workshops IBBL arranged 4 Training / conferences for Foreign Exchange and Remittance handling officials of our bank. Such programs have been very much beneficial for desk officials in getting a wide picture of Foreign Remittance of the Bank. Besides, we have received some valuable suggestion from the participants for improving our Services in remittance handling.

CONCLUDING REMARKS At present some of banks operate their banking system by computer as well as automation. Easy banking system leads to flexibility of transaction between the bank and the clients. But still these days towards the millenium the banking system is not so appropriate in solving fast money, especially with knocking every desk for a cheque to be drawn from the counter which is a very annoying and stained at the present moments. In IBBL, when a client want to withdrawn his or her deposit firstly he or she deposits cheque and receives a scroll number usually called “Token’. Then his or her specimen signature verified by a responsible officer and go to the computer section. After completing all formalities he or she get his/her currency. This system is very slow and annoying. If the above banking system have done by automated banking, the process would be easier than before. In this automated system every client would firstly submitted his/her chaque to the computer section for verifying his or her Account’s code number, Name and Signature because every client’s detailed information is stored previously in the computer when he/she open a Account at an automated banking system. For this way, the computers verify all necessities and give the issuing cheque clearance then the cheque received officer give money to the Account holder. Hence automated banking system is much easier than traditional system for clients and bankers because its save time each of other.


If a server and Wide Area Network ( WIN ) connect the banking system, a client could easily transact his or her Account from any IBBL’s branch of a city. Beside this Automatic Trailer Machine (ATM) is also a possibility of automated banking. If all these above recommendations are implements by the IBBL, then IBBL will be the most undated bank in the next Millenium.
