CHAPTER 2: Organizational Profile 2. 1 Introduction: Shahjalal Islami bank limited is a commercial bank and its play a very important role in our economy; in fact it is difficult imaging how our economic system would function efficiently without the help of commercial bank.

They are heart of our financial structure since they have the ability, co-operation with the Bangladesh Bank to add to the money supply of the nation and thus create additional purchasing power. These characteristics set commercial banks apart from other financial institution. In addition to issuing deposits payable on demand they accept time deposit. By lending and investing these resources and by transferring funds throughout the nation and even between countries, they make possible a more complete utilization of resources of the nation. Although banks create no new wealth, their lending.

Investing and related activities facilitate the economic process of production, distribution and consumption. There are mainly three sections in SJIBL via General Banking Division, Investment Division and Foreign Trade Division. These Divisions have small departments or units under them. 2. 2 Overview of (Industry): At birth, Bangladesh inherited an interest based banking system, which was introduced here earlier when the country was a part of British Colony. Since its inception Bangladesh saw a new trend in banking both at home and abroad. Islamic banking was successfully tries in Egypt.

After the Mit Ghamar Model, Naser Social Bank was in the process of establishment. During the seventies, Islamic Development Bank (IDB) and a number of Islamic banks at national levels were established in the Islamic world. At home, the Islamic groups were vigorously working for adoption of Islam as the complete code of life. They found Islamic banking in ready form of immediate introduction. Two professional bodies “Islamic Economics Research Bureau” (IERB) and “Bangladesh Islamic Bankers Association” (BIBA) were taking practical steps for imparting training on Islamic Economics and banking to a group of bankers and arranging some national nd international seminars/workshops to mobilize local and foreign people and attract investors to come forward to establish Islamic bank in Bangladesh. Their professional and right-thought activities were reinforces by a number of Muslim entrepreneurs working under the aegis of Muslim Businessman Society (9MBS). The body concentrated mainly in mobilizing equity capital for the emerging Islamic bank. Due to continuous and dedicated work of the above groups and individuals and active support from the Government, Islamic banking could be established in early eighties.

Islamic banks have been operating in Bangladesh for about one and half decade alongside with the traditional banks. Out of over 39 banks only five banks (including one foreign Islamic bank) and two Islamic banking branches of a traditional bank, Prime Bank Limited (PBL) have been working on Islamic principles. Like any other traditional commercial banks, they do mobilize deposits and produce loans. But their modes of operation, based on shariah, are different from the other traditional commercial banks. 2. 2. 1 Role of Bangladesh Bank in Promoting Islamic Banking in Bangladesh

Though there is no complete Islamic Banking Act for controlling, guiding and supervising the Islamic banks in Bangladesh, some Islamic banking provisions have already been incorporated in the amended Banking Companies Act, 1991 (Act No. 14 of 1991). Bangladesh Bank did not set up any separate Department at its Head Office to control, guide and supervise the operation of the Islamic banks. Inspection and supervision of the Islamic banking operations are conducted by the Bangladesh Bank as per the general guidelines framed for the conventional banks.

So, ensuring implementation of Shariah principles in the Islamic banks are being conducted by their own Shariah Councils. The role of Bangladesh Bank in controlling, guiding and supervising the Islamic Banks in Bangladesh in accordance with Islamic Shariah is very minimal. In observing the Shariah implementation status of the Islamic banks, Bangladesh Bank examines only the report of the respective banks’ Shariah Councils. However, the inspectors and supervisors of Bangladesh Bank are not equally familiar with the technicalities of the different operational methodologies of the Islamic banking.

This is because of the fact that there is no separate Department to look into this important matter. International Journal of Islamic Financial Services Vol. 2 No. 1 A committee of experts set up by the Governors of Central Banks and Monetary Authorities of the OIC countries examined the whole range of relationships between the Central Banks and the Islamic Banks and submitted a report in 1981 on the “Promotion, Regulation and Supervision of Islamic Banks”. The report highlighted the need to provide for central bank assistance to the Islamic banks on a basis compatible with the Shariah.

The report also discussed many monetary aspects such as liquidity requirements, reserve requirements, supervision of Islamic banking activities, and fiscal treatment of income from participation, ownership, capital requirements, and the maintenance of sound relationships between capital, reserves and total assets. The report recommended the fostering of interest-free financial instruments to enable the Islamic banks to meet the statutory liquidity requirements of the central banks. 2. 2. 2 Theoretical Basis and Business Practice of Islamic Banking

From the viewpoint of Islamic Shariah, in order to be justified islamically the banking system has to avoid interest. Consequently, financial intermediation in Islamic banking between the bank and the client takes place as a partner rather than a debtor-creditor. The financial activities of modern conventional banks are based on a creditor-debtor relationship between depositors and bank on the one hand and between the borrower and the bank on the other. Interest is regarded by conventional banks as the price of credit reflecting the opportunity cost of money.

As interest is prohibited in Islam, commercial banking in an Islamic framework could not be based on the creditordebtor relationship. The other aspect of the theoretical basis of Islamic banking is that the interest free bank is not risk free. This principle is applicable to two main factors of production, i. e. labor and capital. According to this principle, as no payment is allowed to labor, unless it is applied to work, no reward for capital should be allowed, unless it is exposed to business risk. 2. 3 Organizational Overview: . 3. 1 Brief History Shahjalal Islami Bank Limited (SJIBL), a Shariah based commercial bank in Bangladesh, was incorporated as a public limited company on 1st April, 2001 under Companies Act 1994.
