Bank is the financial institution that deals with money. Banks do many things that are not included in the functions of offering deposit and loan services. They provide trust services, arrange mergers and acquisition, and guarantee payment from one party to another through letter of credit and other devices. Mainly bank is a commercial organization and commercial banks are profit-making institution that collects deposits from the surplus unit of the society. The commercial banks act as the financial intermediary. As banks are profit earning concern; they collect deposit at the lowest possible cost and provide loans and advances at higher cost. The functions of commercial banks have changed as the need of the economy has changed.

Now a day there are various kinds of financial services are being performed and practiced in modern economy and many of them are very much helpful and up to date to boost up the economy of today’s world. And we know one thing that changed the financial activities today marvelously that is technology.

As a result there is opened a new era of banking which is called ‘on-line banking’ are very much popular today which eventually made possible to building up today’s ‘e-commerce’. So we should introduce such technology into where the economy is weak to survive.

In addition, the study seeks to achieve the following objectives:

Limitations of the studyAlthough I have enjoyed full co-operation from employees of NCCBL and they also gave me much time to prepare this report properly in the way of my study, I have faced some difficulties, which can be termed as limitations.

TheseAres follows:

1. It should be certainly mentioned that time constraint is the first limitation of the study. Only three months is not sufficient for gathering perfect knowledge on the vast area of bank.

2. In some cases, they could not be able to supply my topic related data for preparing a more in depth research study. Office secrecy was one of the most important problems. Disclosing of some information was restricted.

3. In case of secondary data collection, there was very little secondary information. There were few support books, reports, journals, etc. moreover, the branch office had very little of this information. That’s why bulk of it had to be collected from the head office. As the officers were very busy with their day to day work, they could provide very little time

“A Brief on how They Work to Satisfy Customers: Legal Constrain and

Customer Desire Compared- A NCC Bank View”


Customer-employee relationship is a salient issue for service organization. Gremler and Gwinner (2000) view customer employee rapport as a customer’s perception of having an enjoyable interaction through personal connection with a service provider or his employees. Research suggests that customers distinguish between encounter satisfaction and overall satisfaction. Encounter satisfaction will result from the evaluation of the events and behaviors that occur during a single, discrete interaction; overall satisfaction, on the other hand, is viewed as satisfaction with multiple experiences or encounters with the firm (Bitner and Hubbert, 1994). Conway and Swift (2000) maintain that both parties must have positive experiences in order to reach the required overall level of satisfaction over a period of time and develop the relationship further. According to Ennew and Binks (1999), close personal contacts and the sharing of personal information will lead to increased overall customer satisfaction.

Concept of deposit

Deposits are the foundation on which banks thrive and grow. They are a unique item in a bank’s balance sheet that distinguishes it from other types of business firms. Deposits provide most of the raw material for bank loans and, thus, represent the ultimate source of bank profits and growth. Deposits generate legal reserves, and it is out of the excess legal reserves a bank holds that new loans are created. Important indicators of management effectiveness in any bank are whether or not deposited funds have been raised at the lowest possible cost and whether enough deposits are available to fund those loans the bank wishes to make.
