History of the Banking Industry & Performance of Mutual Trust Bank Ltd


History of the Banking Industry in Bangladesh

The banking system at independence consisted of two branch offices of the former State Bank of Pakistan and seventeen large commercial banks, two of which were controlled by Bangladeshi interests and three by foreigners other than West Pakistanis. There were fourteen smaller commercial banks. Virtually all banking services were concentrated in urban areas. The newly independent government immediately designated the Dhaka branch of the State Bank of Pakistan as the central bank and renamed it the Bangladesh Bank. The bank was responsible for regulating currency, controlling credit and monetary policy, and administering exchange control and the official foreign exchange reserves. The Bangladesh government initially nationalized the entire domestic banking system and proceeded to reorganize and rename the various banks. Foreign-owned banks were permitted to continue doing business in Bangladesh. The new banking system succeeded in establishing reasonably efficient procedures for managing credit and foreign exchange.

Banking Industry Milestones

Current Structure of Banking Industry

Banks in Bangladesh can be classified into the following categories:

Industry Condition in Bangladesh

Depending upon the relationship with and the degree of control of the Bangladesh Bank banks in Bangladesh are divided into scheduled and non-scheduled banks. Scheduled banks are enlisted by the Bangladesh Bank under the provisions of section 37 of the Bangladesh Bank Order 1972. They are promise bound to obey central bank instructions, rules and regulations especially, those relating to required capital and provisions, statutory liquidity reserves, audited returns etc. Through scheduling, banks gain special status and enjoy some special facilities from the central bank such as re-discounting, participation in the money market, membership of the clearing house and deposit insurance scheme. Non-scheduled banks do not enjoy such privilege. The list of non-scheduled banks in Bangladesh includes the Eden Bank, Saidpur Commercial Bank, Comilla Co-operative Bank, Dinajpur Industrial Bank, Rajshahi Bank, Shankar Bank, Faridpur Banking Corporation and Madaripur Commercial Bank.

After taking over the management of American Express Bank by Standard Chartered Bank in the year 2007, a total of 48 scheduled commercial banks including eight foreign banks have been operating business in Bangladesh through 6383 branches. Out of total business 56.5% handled by private commercial banks (PCBs) and rest 43.5% dealt by nationalized commercial banks (NCBs).

Deposit in banking system in 2007 stood at Tk 1426 billion, registering 15% growth. Total assets increased by 14%, of which 8.2% in NCBs and 21.2% in PCBs. Total loans and advances during the year was Tk 1047 billion against total assets of Tk 1725.5 billion. The cash balance in hand was Tk 15.5 billion including the deposit with Bangladesh Bank (BB) of Tk 86.3 billion. The total liability deposit of banking sector in 2005 was Tk 1725.5 billion including Tk 92.7 billion capitals and reserve. The total operations of every bank were assessed according to five fixed criteria. These criteria are capital adequacy, asset quality, management efficiency, earning capacity and liquidity (CAMEL).

Capital Adequacy:

For the safety and protection of depositor’s benefit, capital adequacy must be maintained at 9%. It is also the coverage of financial debacles like loan loss, share market loss, foreign currency dealing loss, interest rate fluctuation loss and the protection for off balance sheet affairs hit. During the year 2007 the banking sector of Bangladesh has been able to keep an average 8.7% capital adequacy against the minimum requirement of 9%.

Asset Quality:

A total of 60.7% assets of banking sector were used as loans and advances. But the high rate of classification has enhanced vulnerability of assets. In 2007, the classified loan of NCBs was 14.6% against the asset, which was 5.6% for PCBs, 0.9% for foreign banks and 26.6% for specialized banks. A good number of banks have not been able to keep required provision against the classified loan risk from the profit during the year.

Management Efficiency:

Management is the key to the development and expansion of a bank. Management efficiency judged on the basis of the ratio of total expenditure to income, operational expenses and total expenses, per head employee income & expenditure and interest rate spread. The average expenditure-income ratio during the year 2007 was 102%, which is a painful scenario for our banking management.

Earning Capacity:

Strong earning and high profitability is the good sign of a bank’s present and future strength. Any loss can be compensated from the profit of a bank. Earnings calculated on the basis of return on asset (ROA), return on equity (ROE) and nil interest margin (NIM) ratios.


The banks have to keep 16% SLR against their deposit with central bank, of which 4% average in the form of CRR. The central bank—Bangladesh Bank (BB) keeps CRR in current account and rest of SLR in cash and government securities. Islamic banks have to keep 10% SLR and specialized banks are given exemption of keeping the SLR but they have to keep 4% CRR.

CAMEL Rating:

Analyzing the overall operational activities of all commercial and specialized banks; central bank, the regulatory authority of country’s banking sector has ranked 6 ‘A-class’, 27 ‘B-class’, 8 ‘C-class’, 5 ‘D-class’ and 2 ‘E-class’ banks (24 Feb,2008), which was completed recently.
