Chapter 1



A federally regulated financial institution that, in general, engages in the business

of taking deposits, lending and providing other financial services.

Institution for receiving, lending and safeguarding money. It may receive money

on deposit, cash checks, or bills of exchange, make loans, discount commercial paper,

and issue bank notes (promissory notes payable to bearer).

An organization, usually a corporation, chartered by a state or federal

government, which does most or all of the following: receives demand deposits and time

deposits, honors instruments drawn on them, and pays interest on them; discounts notes,

makes loans, and invests in securities; collects checks, drafts, and notes; certifies

depositor's checks; and issues drafts and cashier's checks.


It has not so far been decided as to how the word 'Bank' originated. Some authors

opine that this word is derived from the words 'Bancus' or 'Banque' which mean a bench.

The explanation of this origin is attributed to the fact that the Jews in Lombardy

transacted the business of money exchange on benches in the market-place; and when the

business failed, the 'Banco' was destroyed by the people. Incidentally the word 'Bankrupt'

is said to have been evolved from this practice. The opponents of this opinion argue that

if it was so, then how it that the Italian money changers were naver is called 'Banchierei'

in the Middle Ages?

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 4

Page 5: Shahab Final REPORT

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

Other authorities hold the opinion that the word 'Bank' is derived from the

German word 'Back' which means 'joint stock fund'. Later on, when the Germans

occupied major part of Italy, the word 'Back' was initialized to 'Bank'.

It is therefore, not possible to decide as to which of the opinions is correct, for no record

is available to ascertain the validity of any of the opinions.


Despite the classical origin, banking in its modern form and structure started in

Britain when many of the Lombardy merchants came to England in the fourteenth

century and settled in the parts of the city of London now called Lombard Street. They

were so resourceful that even the Kings had to depend on them for loans despite the fact

that the Church was firmly against usury. They with not only keeping the money in safe

custody but also changed money for the travelers or merchants engaged in foreign trades.

Consequently this business was taken over by the goldsmiths who, up to that time, were

dealing only in gold and silver. They introduced necessary facilities of safe-keeping of

the valuables and cash of their customers. These goldsmiths issued receipts or notes to

their depositors in respect of the cash or articles left with them. These were called

Goldsmiths Notes, and carried an undertaking to return the money and articles to the

depositors or bearers on demand.

Chapter 1



At the time of independence, the areas which now constitute Pakistan were

producing only food grains and agricultural raw material for Indo-Pakistan subcontinent.

There were practically no industries, and whatever raw material was produced was being

exported from Pakistan. However, commercial banking facilities were provided fairly

well here.

As a new country without resources it was very difficult for Pakistan to run its

own banking system immediately. Therefore, in accordance with the provision of Indian

Independence Act of 1947, an Expert Committee was appointed to study the issue. The

Committee recommended that the Reserve Bank of India should continue to function in

Pakistan until 30th September 1948, so that the problems of time and demand liability,

coinage, currencies, exchange etc. be settled between India and Pakistan. It was also

stipulated that Pakistan would take over the management of public debt and exchange

control from Reserve Bank of India on 1st April, 1948, and that the Indian Notes would

continue to be legal tender in Pakistan till 30th September, 1948. Following the

announcement of Independence Plan in June 1947, the Hindus residing in the territories

now comprising Pakistan started transferring their assets to India.

There were 19 non-Indian foreign banks with the status of small branch offices

which were engaged solely in export of crops from Pakistan, while there was 2 Pakistani

institutions i.e. Habib Bank and the Australasia Bank. The panic of uncertain future

shook the confidence of people. The Government, therefore, promulgated the Banking

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 6

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

Companies Ordinance, 1947, to safeguard the interests of both the bankers and the


The Imperial Bank of India which had been acting as the Agent of Reserve Bank

of India closed down most of its offices in Pakistan, and also was not willing to purchase

even token amounts of Government of Pakistan securities on the plea that these securities

were not marketable.

In order to make necessary arrangements for the assumption of control an Expert

Committee was appointed to recommend necessary steps, including the required

legislation to establish a Central Bank for Pakistan. Consequently the Governor- General

of Pakistan and the Father of the Nation, Quid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah,

inaugurated the State Bank of Pakistan on July1, 1948, after the State Bank of Pakistan

Order was promulgated on May12, 1948.Thus the State Bank of Pakistan assumed full

control of Banking and currency in Pakistan.

The first important task which the State Bank of Pakistan had to attend to was the

issue of currency notes and withdrawal of Reserve Bank of India notes with over-printing

there of Government of Pakistan, which had been in circulation in Pakistan so far.

As the Central Bank of the country, the State Bank addressed itself with the equally

urgent task of creating a national banking system. In order to attain this goal it provided

very help and encouragement to Habib Bank to expand its network of branches, and also

recommended to Government the establishment of a new bank which could serve as an

agent of the State Bank. As a result, The National Bank of Pakistan came in to being in

1949; and by 1952 it became strong enough to take over the agency function from the

Imperial Bank of India.

In order to develop sound banking and weeding out weak institutions, the banking

companies (Control) Act was promulgated in 1949, empowering the State Bank to

control the operations of Banking Companies in Pakistan, including preparation of the

required trained man-power. Further, the State Bank restricted the opening of new

branches by foreign banks in port towns or in big cities from where trade was being

carried out with foreign countries, while Pakistani banks were allowed to open as many

branches as possible within the country.

Pakistan now entered into a phase of planned economic development in 1956; and

naturally, further expansion in the banking and credit facilities was essential. Though

there had been a remarkable expansion in the number of offices of Pakistani banks since

Independence, it has remained heavily concentrated in large cities. Therefore, the State

Bank had to accord priority to the establishment of branches in the interior of the country.

Development of agriculture largely depends on agricultural finance, but the

scheduled banks were not very willing to undertake this risky venture. Therefore, the

State Bank sponsored the establishment of Agriculture Development Bank to attend

exclusively to agricultural finance. Moreover the functions of the State Bank were also

broadened by the State Bank of Pakistan Act, 1956, conferring the powers to increase

credit facilities for both agriculture and industry. All these measures had positive effect

on Pakistan’s economy during 1956-58. Money supply increased greatly as the

Government borrowed heavily against treasury bills from State Bank; but the credit

demand in the private sector did not rise so sharply due to rigorous restrictions on

imports. During this period a new Pakistani bank was registered and scheduled as the

National Commercial Bank Limited; and Government also established Pakistan Industrial

Credit and Investment Corporation- a new institution in the field of industrial finance.

In 1958, when the Government liberalized imports and transferred the food grain

trade to the private sector, the commodity market became firm, and demands for funds

became very acute. This caused some stringency to the banks during the busy season.

Therefore, the banks had to reduce down their excess reserve and increased their

indebtedness to the State Bank. The expansion in the banking and credit facilities was

further enlarged when during 1959-60 two more Pakistani banks, namely Eastern

Mercantile Bank Limited and the United Bank Limited were established and scheduled.

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 8

Page 9: Shahab Final REPORT

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

Another very important event in the development of banking in Pakistan was the

appointment of the Credit Enquiry Commission in 1959 to examine the scope and

working of the institutions providing credit facilities to agriculture, trade, commerce and

industry, and recommend measures for further improvements.

More Pakistani scheduled banks continued to be established, which included the

Commerce Bank Limited and the Standard Bank Limited. However, despite the pressing

needs, private enterprise was not forthcoming in East Pakistan. Consequently the State

Bank established a regional bank by the name of Eastern Mercantile Bank by

contributing 40 percent of its share capital. In June 1948 (West) Pakistan had only 81

offices of scheduled banks; but by June 1993 their number has been increased to 7100 in

every nook and corner of Pakistan. Besides this growth, specialized credit and financial

institutions have also developed over the years, and cater to the needs of the specific

sectors. National Investment Trust, Peoples Finance Corporation, Equity Participation

Fund, and National Development Finance Corporation, Banker's Equity Ltd., Small

Business Finance Corporation etc. are contributing their due share in the country's

economic life.

The nationalization of banks in Pakistan since January 01, 1974, has heralded a

new era of development and progress. It has taken a completely new turn with the phased

introduction of interest free banking system with effect from January, 1981.

At present the banking structure in Pakistan comprises of the following:


As the Central Bank of the country with its offices at Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar,

D.I.Khan, Quetta, Faisalabad, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, Multan, Gujranwala, Sialkot,

Sukkar and Hyderabad.

Commercial Banks have been the most effective mobilizers of savings and have

been providing short-term requirements of working capital to trade, commerce and


Presently these commercial banks are operating in the nationalized and private

sectors both, after the amendments in the Bank's Nationalization Act, 1974 in 1991.


Islamic banking has been defined as banking in consonance with the ethos and

value system of Islam and governed, in addition to the conventional good governance and

risk management rules, by the principles laid down by Islamic Shariah. Interest free

banking is a narrow concept denoting a number of banking instruments or operations,

which avoid interest. Islamic banking, the more general term is expected not only to

avoid interest-based transactions, prohibited in the Islamic Shariah, but also to avoid

unethical practices and participate actively in achieving the goals and objectives of an

Islamic economy.


The fact that a global network of Islamic banks, investment houses and other

financial institutions has started to take shape based on the principles of Islamic finance

laid down in the Quran and the Prophet’s traditions 14 centuries ago. Islamic banking,

based on the Quran prohibition of charging interest, has moved from a theoretical concept

to embrace more than 100 banks operating in 40 countries with multi-billion dollar

deposits worldwide.

Islamic banking is widely regarded as the fastest growing sector in the Middle

Eastern financial services market. Exploding onto the financial scene barely thirty years

ago, an estimated $US 70 billion worth of funds are now managed according to Shariah.

Deposit assets held by Islamic banks were approximately $US5 billion in 1985 but grew

over $60 billion in 1994.

The rules regarding Islamic finance are quite simple and can be summed up as follows:

a. Any predetermined payment over and above the actual amount of principal is prohibited

Islam allows only one kind of loan and that is Qard-el-hassana (literally good

loan) whereby the lender does not charge any interest or additional amount over the

money lent. Traditional Muslim jurists have construed this principle so strictly that,

according to one commentator “this prohibition applies to any advantage or benefits that

the lender might secure out of the Qard (loan) such as riding the borrower’s mule, eating

at his table, or even taking advantage of the shade of his wall.” The principle derived

from the quotation emphasizes that associated or indirect benefits are prohibited.

b. The lender must share in the profits or losses arising out of the enterprise for which the money was lent.

Islam encourages Muslims to invest their money and to become partners in order

to share profits and risks in the business instead of becoming creditors. As defined in the

Shariah, or Islamic law, Islamic finance is based on the belief that the provider of capital

and the user of capital should equally share the risk of business ventures, whether those

are industries, farms, service companies or simple trade deals. Translated into banking

terms, the depositor, the bank and the borrower should all share the risks and the rewards

of financing business ventures. This is unlike the interest-based commercial banking

system, where all the pressure is on the borrower: he must pay back his loan, with the

agreed interest, regardless of the success or failure of his venture.

Islam encourages investments in order that the community may benefit. However,

it is not willing to allow a loophole to exist for those who do not wish to invest and take

risks but rather content with hoarding money or depositing money in a bank in return for

receiving an increase on these funds for no risk (other than the bank becoming insolvent).

Islam encourages the notion of higher risks and higher returns and promotes it by leaving

no other avenue available to investors. The objective is that high-risk investments provide

a stimulus to the economy and encourage entrepreneurs to maximize their efforts.

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 11

Page 12: Shahab Final REPORT

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

c. Making money from money is not acceptable in Islamic

Money is only a medium of exchange, a way of defining the value of a thing; it

has no value in itself, and therefore should not be allowed to give rise to more money, via

fixed interest payments, simply by being put in a bank or lent to someone else. The

human effort, initiative, and risk involved in a productive venture are more important

than the money used to finance it. Muslim jurists consider money as potential capital

rather than capital, meaning that money becomes capital only when it is invested in


Accordingly, money advanced to a business as a loan is regarded as a debt of the

business and not capital and, as such, it is not entitled to any return (i.e. interest).

Muslims are encouraged to purchase and are discouraged from keeping money idle. In

Islam, money represents purchasing power, which is considered to be the only proper use

of money. This purchasing power (money) cannot be used to make more purchasing

power (money) without undergoing the intermediate step of it being used for the purchase

of goods and services.

d. Investments should only support practices or products that are not forbidden

Islam discourages it. Trade in alcohol, for example would not be financed by an

Islamic bank; a real-estate loan could not be made for the construction of a casino; and

the bank could not lend money to other banks at interest.

Chapter 1



The Bank of Khyber was established in 1991 as a provincial commercial bank

through an act of the NWFP Assembly. The Bank of Khyber reached the status of

scheduled bank in 1994. The provincial government is its major shareholder, owning

87% of the capital. It has a network of 34 branches serving more than 100,000 account

holders. The micro-finance operations of The Bank of Khyber started in 1995, aimed at

the provision of micro credit to small and medium enterprises. In 1997 The Bank of

Khyber extended its operations to rural areas, providing smaller loans to micro-

enterprises and individual clients through its cooperation with NGOs and Rural Support

Programs (RSP). In 1999 The Bank of Khyber created its Micro finance Unit as a

separate profit centre, developing specific products. The Bank of Khyber is the first

formal and structured initiative by a commercial bank in Pakistan to broaden its client

base and reach the micro-enterprise market.


The Bank of Khyber provides micro credit services through its branch network

where credit officer of the micro finance unit are based. Bank of Khyber adopts a four-

The Bank of Khyber is currently a partner to an ADB project, lending to NGOs in

Malakand region. The Bank of Khyber is able to provide micro finance services to clients

with no previous banking history. For micro finance services, The Bank of Khyber does

not require physical collateral.


Providing micro finance services through a commercial banking structure, not

adapted to service grassroots clients, The Bank of Khyber has to cover high costs in its

lending delivery. Moreover, The Bank of Khyber has a limited outreach in micro finance,

particularly amongst women. The Bank of Khyber is restricted by its practice of lending

through branches, but is planning at developing mobile banking.

The bank has shown in deposits and achieved the deposit target set for 2007. To

increase outreach, the Bank has successfully opened 5 new branches in 2007, with 4

could not extract its share from the Banking sector. As compared to last year the profit

was lower but the bank still earned an after tax profit of Rs. 219.437 million after

absorbing impact of provision of Rs. 655.624 million as required by the State Bank of

Pakistan under the new provisioning regulations. Apart from profit the Bank has shown

The economic outlook for the coming year is promising. The government is

expected to continue with its proactive policies and executive corrective measures if and

when required. Though strong inflationary pressure persist but they are likely to ease off

due to tight monetary posture by the State Bank. Bank is determined to grow in view of

the structure improvements introduced in the bank and is well poised for all around

“Organization is a group of people working together in a structured and co-

ordinate fashion to achieve a set of goals.” The essence is that the people who are

structured and coordinated will definitely be working in a proper system. This system

includes both organizational hierarchy and organizational chart.

4.11.1 Organization hierarchy

To avoid the conflict in the organization, all organizational positions are detailed

described and the duties, goals, functions, responsibilities and authority at each position

are made crystal clear. The channel which delegates these activities is called organizational

hierarchy and this must be set in such a manner to best accomplish the organizational

goals. The Bank of Khyber ultimate governing body is the Board of Directors while the

day to day affairs of the Bank are managed by a Managing Director appointed by the Board of

Directors for a term of three years on contract with the consent of the Government of

N.W.F.P. Under the supervision of MD, there are EVP's the senior most officials in the

bank hierarchy each heading a Bank unit, after EVP there are SVP's and VP's heading their

respective divisions and Departments.

At the branch network of BOK there are Branch Managers and Assistant Branch Managers.

Under Branch Managers there are Branch Departmental Heads responsible for their

respective Branch Department. The nomenclature of various posts in the Bank is as under:

Micro Finance has proved to be one of the most effective tools for facilitating

socio-economic development through increased access to financial services. The

economic landscape of NWFP is characterized by a number of flourishing small-scale

economic activities scattered throughout the cities, towns and rural areas. However, these

smaller enterprise entities have never been a focused market for formal financial

institutions operating in this region.

Contributing significantly to income and employment generation, The Bank of

Khyber (BOK) considers the promotion of micro-enterprises as one of the alternative

economic development strategies for the province. For this purpose the BOK launched its

micro business development in 1995 and rural financial services in 1997. This was the

first formal and structured initiative by a commercial bank to broaden the base for micro

enterprise market. The initiative was further strengthened and encouraged by various

multilateral institutions such as Asian Development Bank (ADB), International Fund for

Agricultural Development (IFAD), KFW (German Development Bank) and Swiss

Agency for Development Cooperation (SDC) through credit lines and technical


Encouraged by these developments a new unit called micro finance unit was instituted in

November 1999, which presently functions as Micro Finance Department (MFD) under

the umbrella of Credit Division. BOK aims to be the largest Micro Finance provider in

NWFP on sustainable basis. Our main Objective is providing access to financial services

to the low income and disadvantaged segment of the society to raise their standard of

In the end of this report I am giving the recommendation in order to improve the

efficiency of the bank. These recommendations are primarily based on the analysis.

These recommendations, if followed will have a positive effect on the profitability, and

the role it plays in the development of province.

6.1.1 Better Training Program

It has been noticed that the training program of BOK is not adequate. Special

marketing training should be given to employees for motivating customers. The training

program of bank should include scientific techniques to improve decision making and

inter-personal as well as individual needs of an employee.

6.1.2 Enhance Customers Services

Constant improvements in customer’s services are needed in today’s competitive

environment. Personalized banking should be introduced to attract more customers. Equal

respect should be given to all the customers.

6.1.3 Automated Teller Machines (ATM)

The bank should provide a (ATM) facility to its customers at some branches. This

facility will enable the customers to use the card facility, within the same branch where

they have account. This facility is used in holidays and other than banking hours.

Customers can get information and with draw their money with the help of this facility at

any time.

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 37

Page 38: Shahab Final REPORT

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

6.1.4 Job Rotation

The employees of BOK are specialists in their fields but they need straightening

in general banking. They generally confine to their own work and do not give sufficient

consideration to other department. They must have some basic information of other

departments; it is recommended that there must be proper job rotation.

6.1.5 Proper job Analysis

A detailed and systematic study of the job should be done to know the nature and

characteristics of the people to be employed. This will help in identifying the training

needs, evaluating the job and in appraising the performance of the employees.

6.1.6 Introduction Career Planning

As a matter of personnel policy, personnel department of BOK should prepare a

career plan showing their future growth, potential, depending on the job performance and

evaluation, which should be made known to the employees. In this regard the employees

should be given opportunities to show their performance.

6.1.7 Better Working Condition

The working are is comparatively smaller as compared to the needs of the branch.

As a result there is lesser working space provided to employees. They have to work from

8P.M and some time even longer time period. The congested places affect their efficiency

at work. It is suggested that better working conditions should be provided for effective

and efficient out-put.

6.1.8 Promotions and Publicity

BOK should advertise itself and introduce its services in detail through media to

people. This is the best way to enhance its business like other successful banks. They

should adopt strong strategies for promotion and publicity of their services they offer.

6.1.9 International Banking

Bok should expand its branches. They should expand their branches not only in

Pakistan but also outside the country.

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 38

Page 39: Shahab Final REPORT

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

6.1.10 Use of Media

Bok is new organization in order to increase its customers and add to its publicity,

it is recommended that the bank should advertise itself and introduce its services in detail

through media.

6.1.11 Latest Computer Equipment

Latest software should be installed in the bank so that the data processing speed of

computers can be enhanced.

6.1.12 Proper Distribution of work

In Bok the distribution of work needs further streamlining. Some employees have

more work to do and are under stress while others are not fully occupied. The work

should be distributed in such a manner that there should no undue load or burden on any


6.1.13 Friendlier Environment

Most friendly environment should be created because it will help to gain the

interest of employees in work. Noise in the office should be reduced because it has

unfavorable impact on the working environment. Separate place or section should be

created for each separate task and more space should be provided. It would also be of

greater help in establishment of friendly environment.


The recommendations of any report are useless unless there is proper

implementation. We are, therefore, giving the implementation plan of the

recommendations of my report, which is as follows.

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 39

Page 40: Shahab Final REPORT

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

6.2.1 Better Training Programs

There are many training institutions in the province imparting training in various

themes. A training calendar may be devised and every officer of BOK should undergo

two weeks training in a year in various disciplines. This will enhance the quality and

performance of the officials.

6.2.2 Enhance Customer Services

The training imparted by the officers of BOK will automatically enhance

customer services. More clients will be attracted though enhancing customer services.

6.2.3 Job Rotation

A comprehensive plan must be prepared and every officer of BOK must be

transferred to other departments after every one-year and their rotation should continue.

Every employee will get to know about the working of each department.

6.2.4 Better Working Condition

The working conditions are not conducive. There is a space problem and longer

duty hours. Both the problems must be rectified. A bigger building must be acquired and

main branch be shifted there within one year. The hours should be curtailed by one hour.

This will encourage the employees of BOK to work with more dedication.

6.2.5 Promotion and Publicity

The BOK must allocate funds for publicity. At least one-minute advertisement on

daily basis must be launched on PTV for the publicity of BOK. This will increase the

business of the BOK.

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 40

Page 41: Shahab Final REPORT

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

6.2.6 Latest Computer Equipment

This is an era of information technology. The BOK must acquire latest computers

and software within 6 months to enhance its efficiency. Quick decision will be taken with

the latest computer equipment.

6.2.7 Proper Distribution of Work

The Bank must prepare job Description of each employee and implement it within

three months. Thus no one will feel embraced while working according to his job

weakness of the firm by properly establishing between the items of balance sheet and

profit and loss account.

regulatory authorities, stock holders, borrower, the bank management etc. A depositor is

interested in the solvency of the bank, i.e. the safety and availability of his funds. The

regulatory authorities desire to ensure themselves that the banks are operating in the

accordance of the law and are in sound financial condition of the bank and the

accumulation of surplus. The borrower is interested in knowing the exact of available

funds and the use that is made of the banker’s resources.

Financial ratio that relates two accounting numbers and is obtained by dividing

one number by other.


1. Ratios are calculated for two (2) years i.e. 2006 and 2007.

SWOT an acronym that stands for strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and

threats.SWOT analysis is a careful evaluation of an organization’s internal strengths,

weaknesses as well as its environmental opportunities and threats. In SWOT analysis the

best strategies accomplish in organization’s mission by:

Exploiting opportunities and strengths.

Neutralizing its threats and

Avoiding its weaknesses.

Following is a list of SWOT of BOK

7.3.1 STRENGTHS Following are the main strengths of IBD of BoK.

The main strength of IBD of BoK is that its major stake holder is the Government of

NWFP so it is provincial government bank, so it has a say in the provincial government

and are not facing as many difficulties in regulations etc. as faced by another banks.

The provincial government has made it compulsory for all the provincial Department /

Institutions to keep 33% of their deposits with BoK. Due to this order the deposits of IBD

of BoK has grown substantially.

Now-a-days one of the important strength of the IBD of BoK is its small branch

network. The bank does not have branches in such areas where there is no business. The

other private and nationalized commercial banks are closing their unprofitable branches

and are passing through a paradigm shift; IBD of BoK is not facing such a situation at

this time. They intend to open new branches in strategic business areas.

As compared to other Pakistani banks its staff is well qualified, skilled, knowledgeable,

and courteous and can handle any situation tactfully.

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 54

Page 55: Shahab Final REPORT

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

The senior management of the bank is competent and takes expatriate decisions to

make the bank profitable.

As all the major activities of branches and head office has been computerized.

Which gives a leading edge to the bank? The bank works hard to start their credit cards

and online banking.

Another leading point of the bank is the trust and help expressed by international

financial institutions like IFC and DEG, which have opened new ways for the bank to

generate funds.

As BoK is not only a commercial bank but also acts as a development bank so its

corporate strategy is according to the cry of the day. Which is to strengthen the SME’s

and local industry to cope with globalization challenges. This leads to the increased

utility and importance of the bank.

The open communication and friendly environment developed by the

management and staff of the banks makes it very easy for the management of the bank to

take the right decision at the right time. Most of the banks in the country lack such type

of environment.

The banks offers new schemes and facilities from time to time which keeps not only the

clients of the bank committed but also leads to a growing sound base of deposits.

The Good thing in IBD of IBD of BoK that major decisions are made in light of SSC

Member (means they review every decision in compliance with Shariah)


“Organizational weaknesses are skills and capabilities that do not enable an

organization to choose and implement strategies that support its mission”.

The major weaknesses of IBD of BoK are listed below:

As it is a provincial government bank so the unwanted interruption by provincial

government authorities hampers the bank good well, position and profitability.

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 55

Page 56: Shahab Final REPORT

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

The other major weakness of IBD of BoK is that far it has not been able to receive

the branch-opening license of proposed branches in the country and outside the country

from SBP.

The space of BoK Head Office is very limited so the bank has shifted some of

their departments to State Life Building but still the departments are overcrowded which

effects the employees performance at the head office.

Substantial bad debts of the bank effect are liquidity and profitability. This is the

weakness on the part of Recovery Department that they have not been able to recover it.

Lack of transparent system of recruitment and selection.

Lack of sound training system according to organizational goals.

Coordinated and targeted marketing activities are lacking in IBD of BoK and also the

Marketing Department has no value and presence in the bank.

Most of the employees are unmotivated and lack of technical knowledge and are scared

about their career development.

Most of the employees are having the lack of Islamic banking knowledge.

Not consistency in training programs.

Non aggressive policies (due to that IBD) are losing his experienced personnel.


Organizational opportunity is defined as “An area in the environment that if

exploited may generate high performance”.

The Bank of Khyber can avail the following opportunities if they keep a vigil eye on the

environment and the changes, which are occurring in the environment.

As the situation in Afghanistan is getting better slowly and gradually

multinational companies and other rehabilitation agencies are opening their offices in

Afghanistan. To facilitate the rehabilitation process and the trade between Afghanistan

and other countries including Pakistan IBD of BoK should open their branches in Kabul

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 56

Page 57: Shahab Final REPORT

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

and Jalalabad inside Afghanistan and at Landi Kotal, Miran Shah and Para Chinar in

N.W.F.P., Pakistan.

As IBD of BoK is not only engaged in commercial banking but also acts as development

bank, so their development banking sector is according to the current government

policies and also with in accordance with the policies of international financial and

development situations so they can avail this opportunity by joining hands with the

government and DFI’s in the investments in development sector.

As BoK is planning to step in the Islamic Banking System so they should capture this

market before any competitor comes in.

Construction work is in progress on Deans Trade Centre the biggest Trade Centre

of Asia. It will attract the business community and multinational companies to flourish

over here. IBD of BoK can avail this opportunity by opening a new branch in Deans.

The bank should expend their branches and lower in come groups can reduce the default

risk and can enhance the bank good will and profitability.

Strong promotional strategies can attract huge deposits for the bank.


Organizational threat “An area in environment that increases the difficulty of an

organization’s achieving high performance”.

The threat faced by IBD of BoK, if not faced tactfully it will harm the bank image,

performance and profitability. These are:

The Electronic banking facility offered by different national and international banks

is a serious threat to IBD of BoK. IBD of BoK should soon offer the e-banking facility to

maintain their customers.

In modern banking the ATM facility is of immense importance. IBD of BoK should

install ATM’s at their major branches to cope with the ongoing competition between

commercial banks.

Institute of Management Studies, UOP 57

Internship Report on Bank of Khyber

The low rate of savings in the country is a serious threat to IBD of BoK. They should

aware the general public about the advantages of savings and investments.

The distributed political and legal environment of the country is also a threat to the


The decreasing confidence of people on commercial banks on the basis of offering low

returns and charging high interest rates is a threat to the IBD of BoK also.

Stagnation of the industry and economy in the country in general and in the province in

particular is a serious threat to IBD of BoK.

The failure of other NWFP based banks has shattered the bank image and the

confidence of the investors.

Major Banks have started their Islamic banking system which is the major threat

for IBD of BoK.

Of the most banks they have adopted the aggressive policy due to which the turn over

rate is very high at IBD of BoK.


Regardless of it that the problem is of the external nature or that of internal nature, it

is necessary for the bank administration to solve them properly so that the bank can run

better towards the achievements of its pre-determined objectives. Using the proper way

of administration could solve both the external and internal problem.

All the employees working in the bank may be granted motorcycle advance, which

may be recovered in easy installments, while sanctioning the advance period of the

service should not be taken into account because it closes the way for newly recruited

employees. Also there should be one or two tea breaks for the relaxation of the

employees during the working hours. Approximately one or two clerks may be appointed

other than the sanctioned strength, so that one the time when one takes leave could be

replaced by the person in extra. This may cause some financial problems to the bank for

which an institution always tries to get rid off. But it will help the bank in negotiating the

public properly, which will increase the goodwill of the bank the eyes of public that will

result in the increase in the business of bank and profit of bank. The workers should give

leave at any emergent time. This will increase the desires of workers for worker.

Proper remuneration to a worker brings positive results for the institution. It is

therefore suggested that if any employee works more than four hours, as overtime should

be given full delayed assigning jobs according to their knowledge and skills. The

computers should be utilized properly in order to decrease the expense of bank and

increase the ratio of work done per hour. In this regard the computer literate person

should be recruited and proper programs should be purchased because the computer

works much faster than the human being.
