Theoretical Background of Mobail Banking (Bank in hand)

3.1 Definition of Bank:

According to R. S. Sayers “A bank is an institution whose debts are commonly accepted in final settlement of other people’s debts”

According to A. C. Day “A bank is an organization whose main function is moving for capital formation”

3.2 Definition of Dutch Bangla Bank Ltd.

Dutch Bangla Bank is a financial and joint venture institution whose objectives and operations as well as principles and practices must conforms to the principles of people’s mission, and which must avoid the use of misconduct in any of its operations. The organization of Dutch Bangla Bank defined as “a financial institution whose status, rules and procedures expressly state its commitment to the principles of people’s mission and to the banning of the receipt and payment of interest on any of its operation.”

3.3. Definition of Mobile Banking:

Mobile Banking is a Banking process without bank branch which provides financial services to un-banked communities efficiently and at affordable cost. To provide banking and financial services, such as cash-in, cash out, merchant payment, utility payment, salary disbursement, foreign remittance, government allowance disbursement, ATM, money withdrawal through mobile technology devices, i.e. Mobile Phone, is called Mobile Banking.

Mobile banking (m-banking) involves the use of a mobile phone or another mobile device to undertake financial transactions linked to a client’s account. M-banking is one of the newest approaches to the provision of financial services, made possible by the widespread adoption of mobile phones even in low income people. The roll out of mobile telephony has been rapid, and has extended access well beyond already connected customers in rural area. There is mounting evidence of positive social impact on poorer people and communities as a result.

There are sound reasons for the hope that m-banking could have similar impact. A mobile network offers a high technology platform onto which other services can be often provided at very low cost to deliver an effective result. Mobile data channels are often under-used and therefore may be offered at low cost by the network operator. M-banking services which use channels such as text messaging/ SMS can be carried at a cost of less. The low cost of using existing infrastructure makes such channels more amenable to use by low income customers.

M-banking is new in our country, and there has been limited donor support in this sector to date. This report considers the case for donors to support m-banking as a sector. Bangladesh Bank permitted 10 commercial bank to do such kind of mobile banking business that the rural people who have mobile but haven’t banking facilities, Service holders can get there salary by the mobile banking.

3.4 Reason of Genesis of M-Banking:

Introduction of new technologies

Control costs, removal of cost duplication

To increase online channel customers

Personalize customer interactions

Unparalleled convenience & proactive customer service

3.5. Payments & Transfers

• Domestic fund transfers

• Micro-payment handling

• Mobile recharging

• Bill payment processing

3.6. Transaction

• Bill Payment

• Other financial services like

3.7. Benefits of Mobile Banking:

By providing electronic access to money, it is possible to ultimately alleviate poverty, because of the following reasons.

? Real time on-line banking

? Available anytime, anywhere throughout the country

? It’s convenient, affordable and secure

? It is much more effective in developing savings habits

? It will make access to banking and advanced payment transactions at affordable cost

? It is much safer, speedy and safeguard against fraudulent transaction

3.8. Necessity of Mobile Banking:

• In low income people, m-banking may enable to use such kind of Banking where Banking facilities can’t reach till now the cost and safety of using m-banking is comparatively low.

• M-banking potentially brings new Customer where banking sector is running as like as dog for there product marketing; these may be stronger than retail banks and better placed to reach out to un-banked customers.

• M-banking is still very new, whereas other forms of e-banking are quite well established; the potential to influence and adapted to the customer may be higher compare to former banking because a lot of people use mobile phone in our country


About Mobile Banking (Banking in your hand) of DBBL

“Mobile banking” is not simply another delivery channel but represents a fundamental shift in the paradigm of consumer banking.”

4.1 Introduction to Mobile Banking:

Internet Banking helped give the customer's anytime access to their banks. Customer's could check out their account details, get their bank statements, perform transactions like transferring money to other accounts and pay their bills sitting in the comfort of their homes and offices. However the biggest limitation of Internet banking is the requirement of a PC with an Internet connection, not a big obstacle if we look at the US and the European countries, but definitely a big barrier if we consider most of the developing countries of Asia like Bangladesh. Mobile banking addresses this fundamental limitation of Internet Banking, as it reduces the customer requirement to just a mobile phone. Mobile usage has seen an explosive growth in most of the Asian economies like Bangladesh. The main reason that Mobile Banking scores over Internet Banking is that it enables ‘Anywhere Anytime Banking'. Customers don't need access to a computer terminal to access their bank accounts, now they can do so on-the-go while waiting for the bus to work, traveling or when they are waiting for their orders to come through in a restaurant. The scale at which Mobile banking has the potential to grow can be gauged by looking at the pace users are getting mobile in Bangladesh. The mobile subscriber base in Bangladesh hit 70 million in 2011. The explosion as most analysts say, is yet to come as Bangladesh has about one of the biggest untapped markets. We see that in Korea which is now witnessing the roll-out of some of the most advanced services like using mobile phones to pay bills in shops and restaurants.

A wide spectrum of Mobile/branchless banking models is evolving. These models differ primarily on the question that who will establish the relationship (account opening, deposit taking, lending etc.) with the end customer, the Bank or the Non- Bank/Telecommunication Company (Telco). Models of branchless banking can be classified into three broad categories:

Bank Focused,

Bank-Led and

Non Bank-Led.

The bank-focused model emerges when a traditional bank uses non-traditional low cost delivery channels to provide banking services to its existing customers and new customers in rural area where commercial bank cannot reach till now.

4.3 Objective of Mobile Banking:

Around 87% of the total population of Bangladesh is un-banked. To bring such a huge population into the banking channel, DBBL is implementing a system to launch mobile banking soon. The project is in its final stage now. With this facility any person having a mobile number will be able to use his number as a bank account. In this mobile account they will be able to do the following:

? Cash deposit to any Agent of DBBL

? Cash withdrawal from any Agent of DBBL

? Cash withdrawal from DBBL ATMs

? Funds transfer to another mobile account

? Utility bill payment, Tuition fee payment, Air time top-up.

? Receive remittance from home and abroad

? Salary disbursement

? Disbursement of Govt. allowances

? Merchant Payment

? Balance Inquiry

4.4 Some other purpose of Mobile Banking:

While poor people have little money, they are active managers of what they have. Holding cash comes at high price to poor people because of the risk of crime in many poor People, but they often have few alternatives to cash based services.

In particular, appropriate financial services help poor people to access usefully large lump sums of money, which may either enable a pathway out of poverty through investment in income generating activities (such as micro enterprises) or asset creation (such as housing); or may reduce vulnerability to sudden shocks to cash flow, as a result for example of illness or climate conditions.

In our country, poor people are forced to rely on informal financial services, which may be unsafe, or fringe formal financial products which may be expensive as well as unsafe. In other words, their exclusion from formal financial services has economic and social impacts which may exacerbate their poverty.

The cost efficient provision of formal financial services (payments/ remittances, savings, credit or insurance) is predicated on customers having access at least to a basic transactional account, from which electronic transfers can be made as like purchase product and pay one another by M-banking and cash withdrawn as necessary.

M-banking holds the prospect of offering a low cost, accessible transaction banking platform for currently unbaked and poorer customers. In addition, as mobile networks expand their coverage, they offer the opportunity of bringing payment and remittance services into that areas where banking services is unable able.

However, not all m-banking products will be transformational in the sense of broadening access to financial services substantially at first or even at all. However, it is likely that even m-banking services which start targeted at existing banked customers may over time extend to un-banked groups.

Mobile banking is helping service providers increase revenues from the now static subscriber base.

Service providers are increasingly using the complexity of their supported mobile banking services to attract new customers and retain old ones.

A very effective way of improving customer service could be to inform customers better.

4.9. Limitation of Mobile Banking

Uncertainties over the speed and nature of customer adoption: This is to be expected with any new offering, although the uncertainty is compounded by the relative lack of knowledge of the needs of un-banked people in many places, and the market potential. Consumer education may speed adoption; but more likely, adoption on scale will happen as it has happened with mobile phones: by forced to adapt their offerings as they encounter feedback in the market place. Therefore, it is necessary to have sufficient providers in the market. Who can remain long in the market enough to ensure that to identify the elements of a successful model. Hence, support to providers may assist in overcoming this barrier. Generally available research into the patterns and needs of the un-banked target market may also help.

Lack of inter-operability with existing systems:Inter-operability of different payment systems is primarily a question of market structure and regulation. It arises initially only in markets where there is an existing payment infrastructure with which new providers can inter-operate (and later on, once new infrastructure becomes the standard). Without inter-operability, the fixed costs of deploying financial infrastructure may be much harder to recover, since usage per item of proprietary infrastructure will fall. Clearly, one solution may be to give regulators the power to require interoperability; however, it may be sufficient to encourage the identification of appropriate standard upfront. This could take place via support to regulators or industry bodies, where these exist.

Regulatory barriers:

Specific regulatory impediments vary by market; but in general, a lack of openness to new models of provision and a lack of policy certainty limit the potential of new models. Increasing openness and certainty may require support to regulators to outline high level policy, as well as to amend existing regulations or draft new ones where and when required.
