Executive SummaryPRIME BANK is a bank with a difference incorporated as a public limited company on 17th April 1995 under the company acts 1994. Prime Bank limited is a full service commercial bank with local and international institutes. Prime bank has been striving to provide best-in-the-class services to its diverse range of customers spread across the country under an on-line banking platform. I have worked one of the major departments of this bank. The main objectives of this study are to give a brife idea about credit operation and management of Prime Bank and explain my duties and responsibilities in Prime Bank over this three months. For collection of data for this report I have used both primary and secondary sources. I had collected data from personal observation and informal discussion with the employees of Prime Bank Narayanganj Branch, relevant books, newspapers etc. PBL annual report, 2008 2009, published documents, office circular. In this report chapter one is about introduction of PBL and the objectives of this report. Chapter two is talked about the policy of credit operation and management of PBL. Third chapter is about my responsibilities and duties in PBL and the last chapter is conclusion. During analysis of data I have noticed some positive and negative aspects of Prime Bank Ltd. like strong manpower, branch network, work environment problems, administrative problem and technological problem. After observing over these three months in Prime Bank Ltd. I can say that if PBL centralize their monitoring system it could be more active to maintain classified loan to a minimum level. PBL should open more new exchange houses abroad for enhancing remittance business. PBL should arrange job rotation in branch level to get overall banking knowledge for their employee.

1.2 Objectives of the StudyThe main objectives of this study are: To give a brief idea about credit operation and management of Prime Bank. To explain my duties and responsibilities in Prime Bank.

1.3 Data CollectionData were collected from both primary and secondary sources. Primary data were collected from personal observation and informal discussion with the employees of Prime Bank Narayanganj Branch. Secondary data were collected from relevant books, newspapers etc. PBL annual report, 2008 2009, published documents, office circular.

1.4 LimitationsSome limitations were faced while conducting this study. The limitations were --

The employees in Prime Bank Limited are so much busy in their responsible fields; they could hardly provide little time to discuss with them. Another limitation of this report is Banks policy of not disclosing some data and information for obvious reason, which could be very much useful. Actually to cover whole credit operation and management of PBL it needs more time. As I had only three month I tried to cover the basic things only.
