1.1 HISTORICAL BACKGROUND

Before independence on 14 August 1947, during British colonial regime the Reserve
Bank of India was the central bank for both India and Pakistan. On the 30th of
December 1948 the British Government's commission distributed the Reserve Bank
of India's reserves between Pakistan and India -30 percent (750 M gold) for Pakistan
and 70 percent for India.

The losses incurred in the transition to independence, small amount taken from
Pakistan's share (a total of 230 million). In May, 1948 Muhammad Ali Jinnah
(Founder of Pakistan) took steps to establish the State Bank of Pakistan
immediately. These were implemented in June 1948, and the State Bank of Pakistan
commenced operation on July 1, 1948

Under the State Bank of Pakistan Order 1948, the state bank of Pakistan was
charged with the duty to "regulate the issue of bank notes and keeping of reserves
with a view to securing monetary stability in Pakistan and generally to operate the
currency and credit system of the country to its advantage".

A large section of the state bank's duties were widened when the State Bank of
Pakistan Act 1956 was introduced. It required the state bank to "regulate the
monetary and credit system of Pakistan and to foster its growth in the best national
interest with a view to securing monetary stability and fuller utilization of the
countrys productive resources". In February 1994, the State Bank was given full
autonomy, during the financial sector reforms.

The State Bank of Pakistan also performs both the traditional and developmental
functions to achieve macroeconomic goals. The traditional functions may be
classified into two groups:

1) The primary functions including issue of notes, regulation and supervision of the
financial system, bankers bank, lender of the last resort, banker to Government, and
conduct of monetary policy.

2
2) The secondary functions including the agency functions like management of
public debt, management of foreign exchange, etc., and other functions like advising
the government on policy matters and maintaining close relationships with
international financial institutions.

1.2 Objectives
The state bank of Pakistan is a nonprofit organization. Its main objective is to
manage or maintain the currency supply in country. Increase and decrease in money
supply can create inflation or deflation in country, so these things should be handled
immediately and state bank is doing this.

1.3 VISION STATEMENT

To transform SBP into a modern and dynamic central bank, Highly professional and
efficient, fully equipped Bank to play a meaningful role, on sustainable basis, in the
economic and social development of Pakistan.

1.4 MISSION STATEMENT

To promote monetary and financial stability and foster a sound and dynamic
financial system, so as to achieve sustained and equitable economic growth and
prosperity in Pakistan.

Chapter 4 .SWOT Analysis of SBP

SWOT analysis stands for strengths, weakness, opportunities, and threats. SWOT
analysis is careful evaluation of an organizations internal strengths and weakness as
well as its external environmental opportunities and threats.
The overall evaluation of an organizations strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and
threats is called SWOT analysis.
In SWOT analysis the best strategies accomplish an organizations mission by:
1. Exploiting an organizations opportunities and strength.
2. Neutralizing the threats.
3. Avoiding or correcting its weakness.
SWOT analysis is one of the most important steps in formulating strategy using the
organization mission as a context, managers assess internal strengths distinctive
competencies and weakness and external opportunities and threats. The goal is to
then develop good strategies, exploiting opportunities & strengths, neutralizing
threats and avoid weaknesses.

4.1 Strengths

+4.1.1 Reserve custodian


SBP is privileged to hold the reserves of the whole economy no other bank is
authorized to hold the reserves except they can deal in reserves but the ultimate
holder is SBP. It is also responsible to manage and control the exchange rate in the
country.

4.1.2 Employee Benefit


The employers at SBP are offered reasonable monetary benefit. Normally bonuses
are given. Employees also enjoy the interest free loans free medical care of family

22
and insurance of life. These serve as a benefit and competency for the bank and a
source of motivation for the employees.

4.1.3 Broad Network


The bank has another competency i.e. it has two subsidiaries one is the NIBAF and
second one is the SBP-Banking Services Corporation. SBP has more than 30
departments that are performing their own separate functions.

4.1.4 Strictly follows Rules & Regulations


The employees at SBP are strict followers of rule & regulation imposed by bank. The
disciplined environment at SBP bolsters its image and also enhances the overall
output of the organization.

4.1.5 Premier Institution


SBP in one of the premier bank of Pakistan that is responsible for regulation of
banking and monetary system of Pakistan since its inception. It provides some
guidelines time to time for proper working of financial and monetary system in
Pakistan.

4.1.6 Agent to Government


The SBP performs additional services for government by providing loans and
managing the government accounts as well as the other banks.

4.1.7 Online Network


The bank has the strength of being powered by the network of computers, which
have saved time, energy and would have lessened the mental stress, the employees
have. This would add to the strength that is powered by network of computers.

4.2 Weakness

4.2.1 Uneven Work Distribution


There seems uneven distribution of workload in SBP with some employees over
loaded with work while some employees while others abscond away from their

23
responsibilities, which serves as a demotivation factor for employees performing
above average work.

4.2.2 Political Pressure.


The strong political hold of some parties and government and their dominance is
affecting the bank in a negative way. They sometime have to provide loan under the
pressure, which leads to uneven and adjusted feeling in the bank employees and
harms autonomous status of the institution.

4.2.3 Lacking of Computerized System.


There are some ways which has been working as old as it was working 20 years ago
so it is important to establish a new technological system e.g vault system and
sealing system.

4.3 Opportunities

4.3.1 Micro Financing at (D.I.Khan level)


Because of the need for micro financing in the market, there are lot of opportunities
in this regard. Now the time has arrived when the SBP must realize it and take on
step to cater an ongoing demand and the Micro finance Dept should device policies
to strengthen the micro finance network with the cooperation of Commercial banks..

4.3.3 Advancement of IT and latest technology


The bank must adopt advance technologies in order to facilitate the customers,
employees and also to achieve its goals effectively and efficiently.

4.3.4 Increase economic activities


Bank establishes strategies which increase economic activities like production
distribution and consumption of product and services.

24
4.3.5 Growing banking system
Banking is very important now a day due to increase in domestic and international
business worldwide and every businessman keep proper contact with banks. So the
banks can take this opportunity to attract different business by providing attractive
benefits, so in this regard State Bank can motivate different Commercial banks to
increase their banking system.

4.3.6 Enhancement of skills


Training and development of the work force repaired the employees to be well
equipped and perform their designated task in the best manner and resulted in the
achievement of organizational objectives. Well designed training and development
programs ensure the up gradation of employees capabilities and other associated
achievement for personal goals.

5.4 Threats

4.4.1 Implementation of rules and regulations


It is one of the major threats for state bank to implement policies in its true across
commercial banks. Commercial banks again have to change their policies and adopt
the implemented rules and regulations at operational level.

4.4.2 Excessive government borrowings


As a developing nation Pakistan is borrowing too much from internal and
international banks and funding agencies. These agencies impose numerous
restrictions against the extension of those loans.

4.4.3 Circulation of fake currency


Fake currency is also the problem for State bank. Bank should have thoroughly
checked the every single note; if they did any mistake then it can be the huge loss for
the bank.

4.4.4 Whole structure change to online


Changing the whole structure to online is threat for the bank because many
customers are unaware to use internet so due to which bank can face many problems

25
as well as customers also face the problems and also cyber crime in todays world is
a big problem.

4.5 Recommendations

Enhanced efforts should be made for Public awareness about the clean note
policy, security features of bank notes.
Black marketing of notes should be fully discouraged in order to avoid it
strict policies should be implemented.
Further efficiency in Remittance Management may be achieved through rapid
transport service with more secured arrangements.
Proper staff backup should be provided to every unit in case of their absence,
rotation or transfer. So the other employees can perform effectively at their
post.
Increase the staff strength of IMU State Bank Pakistan (BSC) D.I.Khan
department to decrease the chance of errors.
Staff strength should be enhanced and professionally qualified persons of
only relevant field should be recruited.

In my opinion there should be latest technology regarding the vault


management and sealing of boxes (e.g. Double lock box)
Better infrastructure i.e. more spacious seating arrangements and dedicated
rooms for each unit may be established.
The bank has to accommodate its own building to perform the banks
operations more efficiently, and the most important new building must be
accommodated outside the area of Army Cant so customer can easily enter
into the Bank without any hurdles.
