  10. 10. IntroductionGeneral Banking functions are the common and frequent function of the commercial banks. It serves as the section ofbanking from which the commercial bank collects the deposits to form funds for lending loan and the bank yields income ofgreat extent by doing these functions.However as a Commercial Bank Janata Bank Limited, Kadirgonj Branch, Rajshahi does the General Banking functions inthe following manner………..Opening an account at Janata BankThe depositors served as the basic source of deposit that leads to form the funds to lend loans to others. A transaction with adepositor is launched with the opening of account in the bank. I was informed that various types of Bank Accounts areopened in the bank, that is to say, C.D A/cs, S.B Deposit A/cs, F.D A/cs, D.P.S A/cs, S.T.D A/cs, Call deposit and Sundrydeposit Accounts.I was trained as to how a Current Deposit (C.D) Account is usually opened. The procedure relating to C. D. account issummarized below. Person intending to open a Bank Account shall apply in a prescribed form, duly filled in. He will put at least three specimen signatures in the signature card supplied by the bank and given two passport size photograph. Application form and signature card shall be dully verified by a competent officer. Bank officer shall carefully check specimen signature of the client and verify the genuine of the introducer. After these formalities, an account number is posted against the application and hence he or she becomes a holder of a Bank Account with the bank. Usually the client is required to deposit at least Tk. 100 in saving and Tk.1000 in Current Account. The Banker therefore provides the customer with a pay in slip book, a chequebook and a passbook.Various types of Account holder need documents and maintain rules relating to open Bank AccountOwner of personal A/c: If any person opens account in his own name and maintain it, he will be termed as the owner of personal A/c. Hehas to maintain the bank A/c. Nobody for him can maintain the A/c. The necessary documents require opening personal A/c,which is discussed above.Owner of Joint A/c: When two or more persons open an account jointly, it is called a joint A/c and such account holders are termed asjoint A/c holder. While maintaining, the following rules and regulations are followed: The joint account holders or any one of them authorized to operate the A/c may open either a joint account. The joint account holders are equally liable for repayment of debt taken from the bank. If after the death of a owner, if at least two of them are alive, then the money is withdrawn from the A/c through cheque and new A/c is opened for the alive persons and the money is deposited to the A/c. According to the rules of our country is case of joint A/c by husband and wife, the husband is considered as the owner of that A/c.Joint Stock Company: While opening an account in the name of a company, the Banker must satisfy himself about the following: The name of the company, the shareholders name and addresses. 9 Department of ManagementMBA; Internship repot University of Rajshahi Rajshahi- 6205
  11. 11. Whether the company is registered or not. The following document must be collected:  The signature of the shareholders in the application form.  A document containing the shares of shareholders, their responsibilities and duties.  Naming the person or persons who are authorized to operate the bank A/c on behalf of the company. If there is any change among the shareholders, it must be informed to the bank. All the shareholders are equally liable for the repayment debt taken from the bank.Public Limited Company:While opening an account in the name of public limited company the Banker should take the following particulars: The application for opening an account Naming the person who is authorized by the managing director or managing committee to operate the bank A/c. Specimen signature of the customer. Certified copy of constitution and memorandum of the company List of directors and their signature certified by chairman Scrutiny the financial condition, nature of business of the company The company is liable for the repayment of debt taken from the bank.Non-trading Organization:Clubs, societies, charitable and religious institutions not engaged in trading activities can open their accounts in the bank.According to the constitution of this institution one or more employee authorized to operate the bank A/c can operate theA/c. If the institutions are not registered, Bank Account cannot be opened.Special types of Account holder: A contractual relationship is created between the Banker and customer by opening an account. Basically a personwhose age is 18 years or more can be competent to open an account with the bank. But there is some special types of accountholder specified below: Minor: According to the law of Bangladesh, a person who has not competed 18 years of age is a minor. A minor is not capable of entering into a valid contract. A minor cannot open any account or operates it until he completes 21 years. The bank records the date of birth of the minor while opening an account. A Banker should be very careful in dealing with a minor. If an overdraft or advance is granted to a minor even by mistake or unintentionally, the Banker has no legal remedy to recover the amount from the minor. Married women: A married woman is competent to enter into a valid contract. The Banker may therefore open an account in the name of a married woman. In case of a debt taken by the married woman her husband shall not be liable. But if the wife works as an agent of his husband, then the husband has to be liable for his wife’s debt. While granting loan to a married woman the Banker should therefore examine her owns assets and ensures that the assets are sufficient to cover the amount of loan. 10 Department of ManagementMBA; Internship repot University of Rajshahi Rajshahi- 6205
  12. 12. Illiterate person: Illiterate person cannot sign their names and hence the Banker takes their thumb impression as a substitute for signature and also a copy of their recent photograph. An approved witness should attest the application form and the photograph. Blind person: A blind person can open account and the procedure would be the same as illiterate persons. In both cases the terms and conditions of opening account should have to be read infant of them and if they agree with it only them the account can be opened. Deaf and Dumb: Deaf and Dumb can open account but the respective Banker should have to become careful about the background and character of the person. Mad and Lunatic: Mad and Lunatic person cannot open a Bank Account.Closing of Bank Account: The relationship between a Banker and his customer is a contractual one and may be terminated by either of themby giving notice of his intention to the other person. The rights and obligation of a Banker in this regard is as follows: If a customer directs the Banker to close his account On receipt of the notice of the death of a customer If a Banker receives a notice regarding the insanity of his customer On receipt of a Garnishee order from the court Fixed account is closed automatically after the specified date.Steps of Cash Management at Branch Level: Cash Receipt: The cash receipts procedure, as I found, is summarized below: Pay-in-slip or credit voucher are given to the cash counter for depositing cash. Cash deposit section checks the title if account, its number, amount in words and figures in the pay-in-slip or credit voucher. Cash receiving officer after receiving the cash giving records/denomination of the currency on the back of the voucher shall enter the particulars of the voucher in the cash receiving book under progressive serial number & puts his signature putting the date stamp both on counter foil & pay-in-slip voucher. Then he will pass it on to the officer- in-charge of cash section for his signature along with the register The officer will then detach pay-in-slip from the counter foil and return it to the receiving officer along with the register. The officer sends the pay-in-slip/ credit voucher to the deposit section in case of pay-in-slips and credit vouchers to the respective section to which it relates.

The investment potential of Bangladesh is attracting foreign inventors. Therefore JBL has opportunity to expand the banking bashes with more banking facility. The bank has enough opportunity to increase deposits by offering hew attractive deposit services / product. JBL has the opponent to launch their individual Tk. Credit card in Bangladesh with their ATM card. JBL can invite internet based E-Banking in Bangladesh.Threats: Some foreign banks and public banks are coming threat to JBL.
