The term bank is being used for a long time yet it has no precise definition. The basic reason is that the banks perform not just one but many types of functions originally the banks were supposed to make short term loans to the traders only. The banks now not only make short term loans to the formers, traders , industrialist etc. But also invest in a wide variety of long term earning assets.

The commercial banks also undertake and execute trust, deal in stock, shares and debentures, issue guaranties and indemnities underwrite and sell new securities, and deal in foreign exchange etc.

However some of the definitions of bank from different authors are as follows.

According to Dr. Hart

“Banker or bank is a person or company carrying on business of receiving money and collecting drafts for the customers subject to the obligation of honouring cheques drawn upon them from time to time by customers to the extends of the amounts available on their currents accounts”

In the words of G W Gilbert

“A banker is a dealer in capital or more properly a dealer in money. He is an intermediate party between the borrower and lender. He borrows one party and lends to the another”

Account opening department

This department is under the supervision of Mr. Mubashir Iqbal an ambitions young officer. Applications are received here and after the scrutiny of all the requisites the account is opened. There are mainly two types of accounts.




Now profit and loss (PL) is divided into four types:

1-Profit and Loss Saving Account (PLS).

2-Short Notice Term Deposits Account (SNTD)

3-Term Deposit Account.

4-Golden Investment Scheme.

Now Short Notice Term Deposit (SNTD) is further divided into two:

1-Ordinery Term Deposit Receipt (TDR).

2-Khas Term Deposit Receipt (Khas TDR).



There accounts are opened by Rs. 500. No profit or interest is given on these accounts. These types of accounts are mostly maintained by the businessmen who may draw money at any time. Zakat is also not deducted on these accounts and no any notice is required for the withdrawal of money.

2-Profit and loss account:


This account may be opened by RS. 500. After every six months profit/interest is given on this account and the rate of profit is declared by the Head Office Habib Bank Limited. This year the management of the Habib Bank has decided to give the profit of 8.10% on their saving depositors . A 7days notice is required to draw the money exceeding RS. 15000, However bankers are used to give the relaxation of two, three thousands to their customers. A cheque book containing 10 leaves is given to the account holder which costs to him for RS 10 Mostly persons on jobs maintain these types of accounts. Zakat is also deducted on these accounts on the first of the Ramzan. A new tax i.e. with holding is also levied on the profit of the saving account. The rate of the with holding tax is 10%.


Short notice term deposit accounts are categorized into three categories That are as under:

7-Days notice.

15-Days notice.

30-Days notice.

These accounts are opened for 7, 15,or 30days. But these can be encashed at any time. The rate of interest on these accounts is lesser ordinary PLS. Saving account. If it is encashed before its maturity the rate of profit is further reduced. With holding tax is also deducted on the profit .

This year the rate of interest on SNTD offered by the Habib bank is

From 7 to 29 days 6.00%

For 30 days and above 6.60%


These accounts are opened for 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1year and so on. The rate of interest/profit goes on increasing as the time /period of the deposit is increased. These accounts can also be encashed at any time and ordinary PLS rate is given if these are encashed before its maturity. With holding tax of 10% is also deducted on the profit of TD RS. The of

Profit/interest announced this years are as under:


01 month 8.60%

02 month 9.00%

03 month 9.40%

06 month 10.50%

01 year 11.00%

02 year 11.60%


A Golden investment scheme is offered by the Habib Bank which offers you a rate of 14.50% per annum and the time limit for the said scheme is five years or seven and a half years or so . This scheme doubles the amount after 5 years and in years the amount is three times. But if the amount is drawn before its maturity no such profit is given on this behalf.


These are another type of accounts opened by the Government or companies. Construction companies/organizations require some percentage of total amount of the total contract to be deposited by the contractors as a security. Like when applications for shares are called or when some plots in a housing colony is to be allotted certain amount is called as a security that the applicant is genuine, these accounts are called call deposits. These accounts are refundable and no profit or deduction is made on this account.


As the Pakistani currency accounts are opened the requirements are same for the foreign currency accounts. All the transactions are made in the foreign currency in which the account is opened.


As it is the function of the bank to remit the money to any place where there is a bank. It is the most easiest and safest way to send money to any place. Bank charges menial amount as a commission for the remittance. Here in the Habib bank Branch there is also remittance department. There are mostly four methods to remit the money. They are:

Demand Draft (DD).

Mail transfer (MT).

Telegraphic Transfer.(TT)

Pay Order (PO)

Now these all are discussed here separately in detail:


It is the most commonly method used for the remittance of money. It is very simple, firstly a form is to be filled in , in which all details are specified that where and in which branch the draft is to be sent then the money is deposited which is called draft and money can by drawn after showing to the bank of the specified branch of the bank. Only specified person can draw the money on that draft. Another method to secure the payment of the draft could be the crossing of the draft which means that it will only be deposited in the payee’s account.

To make it more secured and safe the bank has coded the amount exceeding Rs.15000. Only the banker or the person knows the actual amount of the draft. In return bank gets a commission which is its mode of earning.

The bank’s commission rate is as under:

Rupees Min. amount %age

Up to 10,000 15 20%

10,001-100,000 20 15%

100,001 of above 150 07%

Now with holding tax is also levied, so bank also gets 20% with holding tax on the sum an excise duty of RS. 1 per leaf.

Now if the draft is to be canceled or duplicate of the draft is to be needed in case of misplacement Rs.20 is to be paid.


The money is transferred through mail. One branch of the bank sends advice to the branch of the same bank to credit the account of payee. In this type of transfer the payee must have the bank account . For example, now a days PTV’s licensees are made all over the Pakistan. The cash is deposited in the banks and after a week the bank mail transfers the amount to the PTV’s Islamabad account. Bank also gets commission on the mail transfers, the commission rate is:

Rupees Min amount %age

Up to 10,000 15 20%

10,001- 100,000 20 15%

100,000 or above 150 .075%

The bank also charges the postage expenses of Rs.12 on it.


It is a good safe and fast method of transferring money from one place to another. The advice is sent through the telegram and the bank to which the advice is made reconfirms that whether the advice is made or not. After the confirmation the money is paid to the payee. Telegraphic Transfer could be made by giving the name and the telephone number of the payee but account number is considered good and sage . The amount exceeding Rs.15000 is coded in order to keep security.

Bank charge commission on TT’s and the rate is as under.

Rupees Min. amount %age

Up to 10,000 15 20%

10,001-100,000 20 15%

100,001 or above 150 .075%

The bank also charge the telegram expenses of Rs.20 TT


Pay order is less expensive method of transfer money. Normally this method is used to transfer money inside the city. If it is used city wide, it takes a long time.

The bank charge Rs.10 which is flat foe the pay order and an excise duty of Rs.1 per leaf. With holding tax of 20% on the sum is also taken from the party.

Now if the pay order is to be canceled or duplicate of the pay order is to be needed is case of misplacement Rs.20 is to be paid.


Lockers are also available at Habib bank limited NOSHERA VIRKAN. The procedure to get a locker is same as of account opening and RS 600 is to be deposited as a security fee which is refundable. There are three types of lockers available i.e. small, medium, and large. The bank charges Rs.300 per annum for the small locker, RS 500 the medium and Rs.800 per annum for the large size locker.

People get the lockers for the security of precious items which include jewelry, bonds, documents etc. To ensure safety and security two key system is used. Firstly the lock holder is verified and then in the presence of banker the locker is opened with the help of the key which is in the custody of lock holder and is closed with the banker’s key. Without these two keys it couldn’t be opened or closed.

Bills here doesn’t mean the utility bills like electricity bills or gas bills, but in the bills section those cheque are presented that are for the outstation or in station of any branch of any bank.

Now the procedure of collection is different for in both the cases, the outstation cheques are called the OBC cheque. Which stands for outward bills for collection or these are the collections inside the country or city wide and the in station cheque are those which belongs to the Lahore, may be from the Habib bank or any other bank.

Of the cheque is of Habib Bank, the cheque is sent to the HBL main branch GUJRANWALA the HBL GUJRANWALA branch sent those cheque to the branch where the cheque belongs. And after confirmation, in return, sent the IBCO inter Branch Credit Order. After the reception of the IBCO the HBL NOSHERA VIRKAN branch credit the account of the customer.

Now if the cheque belongs to the GUJRANWALA but the bank is other than

the Habib Bank i.e. UBL, MCB, NBP, etc, those cheque are sent to the

HBL main branch GUJRANWALA and from GUJRANWALA the banker will go to

the collection cell which is located at main branch GUJRANWALA.

Here all the representative from all the banks met and settled their inter

bank transaction after the confirmation from the respective bank. The

amount will be credited in the account of the Habib Bank at State Bank

and from their IBCO will be issued in the name of GUJRANWALA main

branch and further main branch will issue the IBCO to the NOSHERA VIRKAN branch.

Now for the outstation cheque the procedure is different. These cheque are sent to the Habib Bank main branch of that city where the cheque belongs. That main branch collects the money and sends a document which is name as IBCO which stands for inter branch credit order to the Habib bank NOSHERA VIRKAN Branch. Bank after the reception of the IBCO credits the account of the person who presented these cheques for collection. Now there are two types of outstation bills for collection,s . These are as under.


Clean OBC includes those instrument,s which do not need any documentation to be attached with it for the purpose of collection. This includes cheque draft etc. The bank charge commission on the clean OBC as .20% of the amount of the cheque or a minimum of Rs, 10. An additional amount of Rs, 30 for the Courier or Rs, 12 for the postage as instructed by the customer credit order to the Habib Bank Chowk Azam Branch and bank after the reception of the IBCO credits the account of the person who presented those cheques for collection. Now there are two types of Outstation Bills for Collection. These are as under.


Clean OBC includes those instruments which do not any documentation.To be attached with it for the purpose of collections. This includes cheque Drafts etc.

bank charge commission on documentary OBC as 35% of the amount of

that instrument or a minimum amount of Rs 25 an additional Amount of

Rs 30 for the courier or Rs 12 for the postage as instructed by the

customer .

If the instrument is dishonored or returned handling charges of Rs. 25/= per cheque or any instrument will be charged by the bank.


This department deals in those cheque and draft,s which are drawn upon the Habib Bank Branch.

The transit delivery section received those cheque and drafts which are through any branch of Habib Bank after proper verification of the genuine of the draft or cheques , this branch transfers the inter branch credit order IBCO to the main branch which further transfers the IBCO where the cheque or draft was presented the clearing section deals in those cheque and drafts which are drawn on Habib Bank. From other banks like UBL, MCB, NBP, etc.

The procedure is same that after proper verification the IBCO is transfer to the main branch which sends the credit note to the State bank,

And State bank credits the account of that bank with the specified amount the bank charge noting on those cheque which belongs to Habib Bank but if the other bank is involved the bank will charge the commission and courier charges.

World trend has been changing very rapidly and competition is becoming more & more stiff. Our country is the tendency towards the privatization now a days.

As we know H.B.L. is an Govt. organization and one of those organization those one suffering loses due to heavy operational & management expenses H.B.L. is bearing of its extra employee those are real cause of heavy management expenses. These expenses are making H.B.L weaker & weaker day by day. Now the Govt. has decided to privatize this org also along with other big organization.

If we technically examine the reason behind the down sizing then we

could see that H.B.L. is increasing 5% operational & management

expenses against the deposit while it 2% all over the world. In down

sizing employees of H.B.L regardless grade designation are offered a

golden shake hand scheme in which people are inviting to great benefits

against taking retirement from the job.

This Golden handshake scheme has following

main features.


The employees may excise their option during the period from

25th August 1997 to 10th Sep 1997.

This scheme is a one time offer . when that much expenses will be incurred these will also add up in loan those are given an normally 18% to 20% when

They will become of 20% to 25% those will be more expensive then that of any other bank which has expenses less than the Habib Bank does.

So now-a-days H.B.L. has been passing through the downsizing process president H.B.L. Mr.. Shasta Tarn has made several refers and it is one of more significant reform.


Three months basic pay for each completed years of service.

An account equivalent to 10 years normal post retirement medical facility will be paid in lump sum to retiring employees.

Benevolent fund grant equipment to 10 years will also be paid in lm sum in advance at the time of settlement dues as a final payment.

The residential facilities for six (6) months after retirement and sale of can if already provided, furniture shall be allowed as a special case to all those executives, who accepts this scheme.

Paid –up- capital remained same during the last four year no minor change has been observes.

Reserves has remained same in 1996 & 1997 but these are increased as compared to 1995 & 1996 the purpose may be was to retain more funds in hand for the planning & development of the bank.

In total assets smooth change can be observed the reason may be the increase of clients of banks because in only 1997 3 million clients bank with H.B.L. within the country & overseas branches.

Total Deposit of the bank has increased in each previous year the main reason of this increase is Bank’s foreign currency deposits in Pakistan have increased.

Advances increased through all four years because banl has continued its policy of supporting the priorities established by Govt. and rendering services to all sectors of the economy with specific emphasis.

THE investment slightly declaimed due to increased diversion of bank’s resources for financing the requirement of priority sectors of the economy.

Total Income & Total expenditure remained slightly unfavorable due to increasingly competitive environment and structural problems of public sector Financial institution continued to put sever strain on the bank’s operation.

On the bases of this Analysis H.B.L. is rated among the top 7 banks in

Financial set up of Pakistan.



H.B.L. has very effective Network of branches all over the country. Every 10th Pakistani is A/C holder of H.B.L. has made huge investment in almost all the important economic sectors of Pakistan. H.B.L. not only has made investment in industry but also in small scale industry as well. H.B.L. has efficient & less bureaucratic set up H.B.L. has introduced monthly income scheme that provides almost highest interest rate .A.T.M. Was introduced in Pak. By H. B. L. master card facilities is also available to the clients.


No consumer banking has offered by the H.B.L. to its clients like phone banking evening banking etc.

Bed Debt rate is very high no special effort has been made to recover the bed amounts.

No marketing set up or structure is there. Most of people do not know how they have to promote their activities.


H.B.L. is oldest bank in the country people do rely on this bank with some additional efforts bank can attract high deposit from Pakistan and overseas.

Instead of emphasizing on big & long term projects bank should concentrate on small scale investments heaving small maturity period.

Now-a-days H.B.L. has been investing almost 18% of its total investment on cotton business, along with investment in cotton it should invest in other cash crops, i.e. Rice, Sugar Cane, Tobacco, Wheat etc and there related agro based industry.


First threat that bank has to face is the Privatization, down sizing & restructuring these changes could make drastic effects as well.

New incoming local & specialy foreign banks those are main cause of stiff competition in the market

DFI’s are going very well in financial set up of Pakistan. So, these are also effecting on the operations of bank. Along with other threats the threat of corruption has vital importance.


Habib Bank limited was rated among first 500 banks of the world but now it is in among 1000 banks in the world, H.B.L. is not progressing due to political influence, in efficient management & corruption. If these draw backs have removed then bank will not only join its previous position rather we hope it will be rated among world top ten banks.
