So the preparation and submission of this report is partial requirement for the completion of the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA).This report is outcome of the three months long internship program conducted in Social Islami Bank Limited (SIBL), one of the reputed private commercial banks of the country .While working operating procedures carried out by the bank were observed and supportive effort with the trainers, bankers & under the guidance of my faculty respective advisor Kazi Ayesha Siddiqua.

This internship program has been prepared on the basis of my practical experience in the general banking. This report will also provide the essential information’s how the private commercial banks contribute for the economic development of the country.

I have tried my best to utilize the opportunity to enrich my knowledge on banking system and incorporate it with the theoretical course.

This internship gives us a chance to co-ordinate with the theoretical knowledge and the practical experience and to evaluate the performance of general banking of Social Islami Bank Limited. The following are of objective for internship in bank:

My study is performed based on the information extracted from different sources collected by using a specific methodology. All the methodology is mentioned below:

Primary sources

  • Practical desk work
  • Face to face conversation with the officer & client
  • Direct observations

Secondary sources

  • Annual reports of SIBL.
  • Files & Folders
  • Memos & Circulars

 There are three specific sectors in the SIBL. General banking, Investment & Foreign Trade are those. Basically under those sectors SIBL play a vital role of the country.  General banking is one of the profitable sites for the all bank. On the other investment also a strong silt of the SIBL. But SIBL (Social Islami Bank Limited) is most popular for its foreign trade. Besides it have very strong relationship with the foreign customer. SIBL foreign trade policy is huge. Basically most of the customer is made an import & export by the SIBL. So the foreign trade policy is selected by me to submit a internship report up to Social Islami Bank Limited.

   Due to confidentiality of the data, adequate data were not available.

  Supply of more practical and contemporary data is another shortcoming

  The study may not be done very successfully due to inexperience.

  On our schedule time we could not find the respondent. Because they were busy with their work on that time.

Islami Banking Concept



From the Holy Qur’an


Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem

Those who take Riba (usury) will not stand (on the day of resurrection) except like the standing a person beaten by Shaitan (Shatan) leading him to insanity. That is because they say: “Trading is only like Riba (usury)”, whereas Allah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba (usury).So whosoever receives an admonition from his Lord and stops eating Riba (usury) shall not be punished for the past: his case is for Allah (to judge); but whoever returns [to Riba (usury)], such are the dwellers of the fire- they will be abide therein.

                                                                                          −Surah Al-Baquarah, verse-275

Allah will destroy Riba (usury) and will give increase for Sadaqaat (deeds of charity, alms etc.)And Allah likes not the disbelievers, sinners.

                                                                                            −Surah Al-Baquarah, verse-276

O you who believe! Be afraid of Allah and give up what remains (due to you) from Riba [(usury) (from now onward)], if you are (really) believers.

                                                                                           −Surah Al-Baquarah, verse-278

And if you do not do it, then take a notice of war from Allah and His Messenger; but if you repent, you shall have your capital sums. Deal not unjustly (by asking more than your capital sums), and you shall not be dealt with unjustly (by receiving less than your capital sums).

                                                                                            −Surah Al-Baquarah, verse-279


 Islamic banking refers to a system of banking or banking activity that is consistent with the principles of Islamic law (Shariah) and its practical application through the development of Islamic economics. Shariah prohibits the payment or acceptance of interest fees for the lending and accepting of money respectively, (Riba, usury) for specific terms, as well as investing in businesses that provide goods or services considered contrary to its principles (Haraam, forbidden). While these principles were used as the basis for a flourishing economy in earlier times, it is only in the late 20th century that a number of Islamic banks were formed to apply these principles to private or semi-private commercial institutions within the Muslim community.


 In August 1974, Bangladesh signed the Charter of Islamic Development Bank and committed itself to reorganize its economic and financial system as per Islamic Shariah.
In January 1981, Late President addressing the 3rd Islamic Summit Conference held at Makkah and Taif suggested, ”The Islamic countries should develop a separate banking system of their own in order to facilitate their trade and commerce.”

This statement of Late President indicated favorable attitude of the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh towards establishing Islamic banks and financial institutions in the country. Earlier in November 1980, Bangladesh Bank, the country’s Central Bank, sent a representative to study the working of several Islamic banks abroad.

In November 1982, a delegation of IDB visited Bangladesh and showed keen interest to participate in establishing a joint venture Islamic bank in the private sector. They found a lot of work had already been done and Islamic banking was in a ready form for immediate introduction.

Two professional bodies -Islamic Economics Research Bureau (IERB) and Bangladesh Islamic Bankers’ Association (BIBA) made significant contributions towards introduction of Islamic banking in the country. They came forward to provide training on Islamic banking to top bankers and economists to fill-up the vacuum of leadership for the future Islamic banks in Bangladesh.

They also held seminars, symposia and workshops on Islamic economics and banking throughout the country to mobilize public opinion in favor of Islamic banking. Their professional activities were reinforced by a number of Muslim entrepreneurs working under the aegis of the then Muslim Businessmen Society (now reorganized as Industrialist & Businessmen Association).

The body concentrated mainly in mobilizing equity capital for the emerging Islamic bank.

At last, the long drawn struggle to establish an Islamic bank in Bangladesh became a reality and Islami Bank Bangladesh Limited was established in March 1983 in which 19 Bangladeshi national, 4 Bangladeshi institutions and 11 banks, financial institutions and government bodies of the Middle East and Europe Including IDB and two eminent personalities of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia joined hands to make the dream a reality.
Later, other three Islamic Banks were established in the country.


 The objective of Islamic Banking is not only to earn profit but also to do good and welfare to the people. Islam upholds the concept that money, income and property belong to ALLAH and this wealth is to be used for the good of the society. The main objectives of Islamic Banking are as follows:

  1. To conduct interest free banking.
  2. To establish participatory Banking instead of Banking on debtor-creditor relationship.
  3. To invest through different modes permitted under Islamic Shariah.
  4. To accept deposits on profit-loss sharing basis.
  5. To establish welfare oriented Banking System.
  6. To extend operation to the poor, helpless and low income group for their economic up liftmen.
  7. To contribute in achieving the ultimate goal of Islamic economic system.

The common practices of Islamic banks in the sources of funds may be described as follows:

1.      Current Account

All Islamic banks operate current account on behalf of their client individuals and business firms. These accounts are operated for the safe custody of deposits and for the convenience of customers. There is little different between conventional banks as far the operation of current accounts is concerned. There are two dominant views about current account. One is to treat demand deposit as amnah (trust). A trust deposit is defined by the Jordan Islamic Banks as “cash deposits received by the bank where the bank is authorized to use the deposits at its own risk and responsibility in respect to profit or loss and which are not subject to any conditions for withdrawals or depositing”.

2.      Saving Account

All Islamic banks operate saving accounts. It must be pointed out that any return on capital is Islamically justified only if the capital is employed in such a way that it is expected to a business risk. Savings accounts at Islamic Banks Generally operate as follows:

  1. Savings accounts are opened with the condition that deposits provide the bank with an authorization to invest.
  2. Depositors have the right to deposit and withdraw funds.
  3. The profits in savings accounts are calculated on the minimum balance maintained during the month. Depositors participate in the profits of savings accounts with effect from the beginning of the month following the month in which the deposits are made. Profits are not calculated with effect from the beginning of the month in which a withdrawal is made from the account.
  4. A minimum balance has to be maintained in order to qualify for a share in profit.

 3.      Investment Deposit

Investment deposits are Islamic banks counterparts of term deposits or time deposits in the conventional system. They are also called profit and Loss-Sharing (PLS) Accounts or Participatory Account. However they can be distinguished from traditional fixed term deposits in the following manner:

  1. Fixed term deposits in the conventional system operate on the basis of interest while investment accounts in Islamic banks operate on the basis of profit sharing Instead of promising depositors a predetermined fixed rate of return on their investment the bank tells them only the ratio in which it will share the profits with them.
  2. While fixed term deposit are usually distinguished from each other on the basis of their maturities investment deposits can be distinguished on the basis of maturity as well as on the basis of purposes as it is possible to give special instructions to the bank to invest a particular deposit in a specified project or trade.

 The main distinguishing characteristics of investment deposits can be described as follows:

  1. Deposit holders do not receive any interest. Instead they participate in the share of the profits or losses.
  2. Usually these accounts are opened for a specific period e.g. three months, six month, one year or more.
  3. Generally speaking depositors do not have the right to withdraw from these accounts as is customary in time deposits in conventional banks.



Social Islami Bank was founded in 1995 as Social Investment Bank Limited and changed its name to the present one on August 2009.

Under this scheme the depositor will get monthly profit on the deposited amount. The reasons for introducing this scheme are as follows:

  1. a.      The scheme provides monthly profit for service holders who may deposit the pension benefit
  2. b.      For those Bangladeshis working abroad willing to deposit once and provide a fixed amount monthly to family and relative residing in Bangladesh
  3. c.       The trust and foundations willing to provide monthly scholarship to students against one time deposit
  4. d.      For the parents who wants to bear educational expenses of their child against deposit

The features of this scheme are as follows:

ü  Tk. 1,00,000/-, 1,10,000/-, 1,20,000/- or 1,25,000/- or any amount multiple can be deposited under this scheme.

ü  The duration of the amount should be for Five years

ü  Profit shall be distributed under this scheme as follows:
a. 1,00,000/- Tk. 900 (net)
b. 1,10,000/- Tk. 1000 (net)
a. 1,20,000/- Tk. 1,100 (net)
b. 1,25,000/- Tk. 1150 (net)

  The payable profit will become due after 1 month of deposit. But the amount will be deposited to account in the last week of the month.

  Generally, a depositor cannot withdraw the amount before 5 years. But, in unavoidable circumstances the depositor can withdraw the amount and in that case.

  The depositor will have to submit the duly filled application form of the scheme.

  The depositor will have to maintain a Mudaraba Savings account in which the profit of the scheme will be deposited.

  In case of change of address the depositor must inform the bank as soon as possible.

  If the scheme is closed before 1 year then no profit will be given.

  13. m.    In case of failing of 3 consecutive installment the account will be automatically changed to savings account.
  14. n.      Money cannot be withdrawn from the Hajj/Umrah account therefore cheque book will not be issued.

 SIBL foreign exchange branch performs the bill clearing function through Local office. SIBL Local office acts as the agent of all SIBL branches for the clearing house of the Bangladesh Bank. There are two types of cheque which are-

1. Inward clearing cheque

2. Outward clearing cheque.

Inward Cheques:

Inward cheques are those ones drawn the respective branch which have been presented another banks and will be cleared / honored through the clearing house of Bangladesh Bank. For example the cheque drawn on SIBL Local Office Br, then the cheque is called inward cheque of SIBL Local Office Br,

Accounting treatment:

Customer’s A/C


SIBL General A/c


 Outward Cheques:

Outward cheques are those ones drawn on other bank branches which are presented on the concerned branch for collection through clearing house of Bangladesh Bank. These cheques are called outward cheques. For example, the cheque drawn on Mercantile Bank LTD, Kawran Bazar Br has been presented on SIBL Foreign Exchange Br. This cheque is called the outward cheque of SIBL Foreign Exchange. Hence it is said that the cheque which is the inward cheque of one bank is the outward cheque of another bank.

Outward Bills for Collection (OBC)

By OBC, we mean that those cheques drawn on other banks which are not within the same clearing house. Officer gives OBC seal on this type of cheques and later sends a letter to the manager of the branch of the some bank located in the branch on which cheque has been drawn. After collection of that bill branch advises the concerned branch in which cheques has been presented to credit the customer account through Inter Branch Credit Advice (IBCA).In absence of the branch of the same bank, officer sends letter to manager of the bank on which the cheques is drawn. That bank will send pay order in the name of the branch. This is the procedure of OBC mechanism.


The scheduled banks clear the cheques drawn upon one another through the clearinghouse. SIBL is a scheduled Bank. According to the Article 37 (2) of Bangladesh Bank Order, 1972, the banks which are the member of the clearinghouse are called as Scheduled Banks. This is an arrangement by the central bank where every day the representative of the member banks gathers to clear the cheques. The place where the banks meet and settle their dues is called the clearinghouse. The clearinghouse sits for two times a working day. The SIBL Local Office Br sends the instruments through Inter Branch Debit Advice (I.B.D.A). SIBL Local Office acts as an agent in this case. For this, Local Office branch gives the following entries,

SIBL General A/C (Local Office Br) —————Dr.

Customer’s A/C———————————Cr.

If the instrument is dishonored, the instrument is returned to the Local Office branch through I.B.D.A. along with the following entries,

Customer’s A/C—————Dr.

SIBL General A/C——————Cr.

Receiving Cheques for Collection

In SIBL, cheques of its customers are received for collection from other banks. In case of receiving cheques, following points should be checked very carefully-The cheques should not carry a date older than the receiving date for more than 6 months. In that case it will be a ‘stale cheque’ and it will not be allowed for collection. Again the date of the cheque should not be more than 1 day’s forward than the receiving date. a. The amount in figures and words in both sides of the pay-in-slip should be same and it should also be same with the amount mentioned in figures and words in the cheque. b. The name mentioned in the cheque should be some in both sides of the pay-in-slip and it should be the same with the name mentioned in the cheque. c. The cheque must be crossed.

Cheque and Crossing

a)      An open cheque which can be presented for payment by the holder at the counter of the drawer’s bank.

b)      A crossed cheque which can be paid only through a collecting banker. Crossing cheque: A cheque is said to be crossed when two transverse parallel lines with or without any words are drawn across the face. Crossing may be general, special or restrictive.

 Issuing Cheque Book
