1.3 Scope of the report

As I was working in the Trust Bank, Mirpur Branch, I got the opportunity to learn different part of banking system. The supervisor divided the whole banking system in five parts, as a result I got the opportunity to work in all the five divisions (Account opening, Foreign remittance, FCAD, Credit Division& Cash Counter). My main concern was to identify the customer satisfaction level of overall general banking. From the survey I had the opportunity to gather information about-

a) Who and why people look for CCS?

age group, habitants etc.

c) What are the benefits those customers look in CCS?

1.4 Methodology of the study

Although there were so many limitations, it was tried to use both the primary and secondary sources of collecting information to make the report presentable with as less abstraction as possible.

Sources of Information:

A. Secondary data

Data that were published before for some other reason can be collected using internal and external sources.

i) Internal Secondary data: To furnish the report properly some papers has been collected from the officials of Trust Bank Limited. Information from annual reports, journals, newspapers and other published documents have been used. Besides other published information about the organization, depth interview of the branch manager and Sub- manager have also taken. The information mainly about CCS was taken from the authorized officer who deals with this scheme.

ii) External Secondary Data: For better interpretation some data has been collected from Bangladesh Bank. Internet Browsing is also one source of external Secondary data.

B. Primary data

Primary data is always collected from the respondent. For this project personal Interview with the customer has been conducted. When it becameimpossible to conduct face to face interview I collected the primary data by using the Telephone Interview and also face to face.

A. Questionnaire: to make the report unquestionable or fair I conducted a questionnaire survey among 40 respondents.

B. Observation: The direct examinations of behavior, the result of behavior, or psychological changes have been conducted.

1.6 Limitations

§ Lack of comprehension of the respondents was the major problem that created many confusions regarding verification of conceptual question.

§ Limitation of time was one of the most important factors that shortened the present study. Due to time limitation many aspects could not discussed in the present study.

§ Confidentiality of data was another important barrier that was faced during the conduct of this study. Every organization has their own secrecy that in not revealed to others. While collecting data on Trust Bank, personnel did not disclose enough information for the sake of confidentiality of the organization.

§ Rush hours and business was another reason that acts as an obstacle while gathering data.

§ The findings of the survey are based on customers’ response in Trust Bank credit card services located in Dhaka City only. The results may not reflect the same for other branches of Trust Bank outside Dhaka.

§ Limitation of the Personal knowledge is another one. Since knowledge knows know bound, so this report is incapable to present all things with more depth.


2.1 Historical Background

Trust Bank Ltd. (TBL) is a Private Commercial Bank that started its operation 10 years ago. They gained success from the very beginning of their operation and were capable enough to hold the success year after year.

2.6.1 General Banking

A bank starts its function providing service to the customers by its general banking activity. The efficiency of the general banking activity that provided by each branch reflects the whole service given by that bank. With the increasing competition customers are mostly impressed by the efficiency of this department. The whole general banking activity is consisted of receiving deposit, remitting fund and meeting the different need of the customers. It is one of the busiest departments. TBL Mirpur Branch has the full-fledged set up for general banking facilities.

In fact, a bank operates with the people’s money. And this process starts with the ‘General Banking Department’. The activity of the General Banking Department of PBL, Elephant Road Branch is mainly divided into categories:

1. Account Opening Section

2. Savings Schemes And Sanchaypatra Section

3. Local Remittance Section

4. Clearing and Collection Section

5. Cash Section

Account Opening

The relationship between banker and customer begins with the opening of an account by the customer. Opening of an account binds the Banker and customer into contractual relationship under the legal framework of the “Contract Act–1872”. But selection of customer for opening an account is very crucial for a Bank. In fact, fraud and forgery of all kinds start by opening account. So, the Trust Bank Ltd. takes highest caution in this regard.

Trust Bank Ltd. opens the following accounts for its customers:

? Savings Accounts

? Current Accounts

? Fixed Deposit Receipt (FDR) Accounts

? Short Term Deposit (STD) Accounts

? Term Deposit Accounts.

Transfer of an Account

? When an account is transferred from one branch to another, the account opening form etc. signed at the time of opening account and any forms or documents signed subsequently which are necessary for its proper conduct at the time of transfer, must be forwarded under cover of form, to the branch to which the account is transferred. Specimen signature card and standing instruction if any must also be transferred. No charge is taken on such transfer.

? The necessary information regarding the character, means and standing of the account holder and must be given to the receiving branch.

Closing of an Account

A banker can close the account of his/her customer. The stoppage of the operation of the Account can be under following circumstances :

? Notice given by the customer himself.

? Death of customer.

? Customer’s insanity and insolvency.

? Order of the court / Injunction of the court.

? Garnishee Order.

An application to close the account from customer Is received. Signature must be verified by the respective officer. The following activities are the part and parcel of account closing: ­

? Draw amount form the A/C keeping Tk. 500 for saving and Tk. 900 for current A/C as closing charge.

? Cheque book or outstanding cheque leaf (if any) is destroyed.


Cash handling from one place to another is risky. So, bank remits funds on behalf of the customers to save them from any mishaps through the network of their branches. There are four modes of remitting money from one place to another. These are–­

? Pay Order (PO)

? Demand Draft (DD)

Pay Order (PO)

Process of Issuing Pay-order

? Customer is supplied with PO form.

? After filling the form the customer pays the money in cash or by cheque.

? The concerned officer than issues PO on its specific block.

? The officer then writes down the number of the PO block on the PO form.

? Two authorized officers sign the block.

? At the end customer is provided with the two parts of the block after signing on the black of the Bank’s part.

Demand Draft:

Demand Draft is purchased when one person wants to pay money somebody who is living out of this area and bearing an account with another branch in this bank. For instance, a person is living in Dhaka. He wants to give some money another person of Chittagang who is bearing an account with the TBL. At Chittagang. But he does not want to pay in cash. In this case he may purchase a DD (A/C payee only) in favor of him.

2.6.2 Credit Department

One of the two primary functions of a commercial bank is to extend credit to the deficit economic unit that comprises borrowers of all types. Bank credit is a catalyst of economic development. Without adequate finance, there can be no growth in the economy. Bank lending is important for the economy in the sense that it can simultaneously finance all of the sub-sectors of financial arena, which comprises agricultural, commercial and industrial activities of a nation. Therefore, a bank is supposed to distribute its loan able fund among economic agent-in-deficit in a manner that it will generate sufficient income for it and at the same time benefit the borrower to overcome his/her deficit.

The granting of credit is one of the most important functions of a bank and the test of bank strength depends considerably on the quality of its credit and proportion they bear to the total deposit. Although receive from exchange, commission and banks charges contribute a fair amount of the profits or commercial bank, its earnings are chiefly derived from interest charged on loans and discounts.

Traditionally banks have been following three cardinal principles of lending they are:

i. safety

ii. liquidity and

iii. Profitability.

Credit may be made either of the personal security of the borrower or on the security of some tangible assets. The former is called unsecured or clean or personal credit and the latter is called secured credit. Confidence in the borrower is the basis of unsecured credit. The confidence is judged by three considerations: character, capacity and capital. Secured credit means loans and made on the security of tangible assets like land, building, machinery, goods and documents of title goods. Such loans provide absolute safety to a banker by creation of charge on the assets in favor of him.


The important methods of charging a security are the following:


Lien is the right of a creditor to retain the properties belonging to the debtor until the debt due to him is repaid. Lien gives a person only a right to retain the possession of the goods and not the power to sell the goods. A banker’s lien is a general lien which tantamount to an implied pledge.


The usual method of obtaining a title to goods offered as security is by way of pledge. Under section 172 of Contract Act 1872, pledge is defined as ‘a bailment of goods as security of payment of a debt or performance of a promise’ that is in case of pledge the possession of the goods? is delivered to the creditor i.e. the banker. It is therefore, regarded as the most secured type of advance.


A mortgage is a method of creating charge on immovable properties like land and building. Section 58 of the Transfer of Property Act 1882, defines a mortgage as ‘the transfer of an interest in specific immovable property for the purpose of securing the payment of money advanced or to be advanced by way of loan, an existing or future debt, or the performance of an engagement which may give rise to pecuniary liability’. A mortgage can be affected only on immovable property.


The mortgage of movable property for securing loan is called Hypothecation. In other words, in case of hypothecation, a charge over movable properties like goods, raw materials, and goods in progress is created. Hypothecation is only an extended idea of a pledge, the creditor permitting the debtor to retain the possession either on behalf of or in a trust for him.


Set-off means the total or partial merging of a claim of one person against another in a counter claim by the latter against the former. It is in fact the combining of accounts between a debtor and a creditor so as to arrive at the net balance payable to one or the other. It is a right that accrues to the banker as result of the banker-customer relationship.

Customers of Trust Bank Limited have a good perception about the quality of service provided by them. From our survey we found that customers are satisfied with the overall service of TBL . All the offers provided by TBL are very beneficial for the customers. But in case of service benefit is not the alone factor that determines the level of satisfaction. There are many other things that take control over the overall satisfaction. For instance, service having attractive offers may fail only because of rude behavior or carelessness of the provider. So it is very important to ensure other factors that are related with the success of the service.

There are five major factors identified by the experts that are essential to assure the quality of better service that will lift the level of satisfaction. They are reliability, responsiveness, assurance, empathy and tangibles.

Because if the client pretends that the company is not able to continue its service proper in the future they will not interested to banking with PBL . From our survey we see that most of the customers chose PBL because they think it is reliable compare to others in case of providing various unique features (Bangladesh international). On the whole customers have a perception that PBL is capable to provide all the services they offered.

According to the perception of customers responsiveness is very important to increase the quality of the service. Even the customers ranked the importance of responsiveness in banking 7 out of 9. If employees do not response immediately to the need of the customers, valuable time of the customers will be spent unnecessarily. Even the customer may become frustrated whether he will get the service or not. The customers of PBL replied that PBL responses promptly.


It means the knowledge and ability of the employees to develop trust in the mind of the clients about the completion of the task properly and on time. Customers have a great perception about PBL that they perform according to their promise. Assurance has a great impact on the quality of the service because if promises are not kept customers may switch to other bank.


To ensure better service it is very important for the employees to have empathy. Empathy means giving individual attention and taking extra care of the customer.
