Brief Introduction of Banking Sector.
Banking in its modern form and structure started inBritainwhen many of theLombardymerchants came toEnglandin the fourteenth century and settled in the parts of the city ofLondonnow calledLombard Street.
Over the period of time they discovered that large sum of the money were left in their custody for long periods; which suggested the use of cash to advance loans t other person for a fixed period of time and considerably high rate of interest. Thus began the “issue” and “deposit” banking of the modern times. Some of the enterprising goldsmiths issued “cheque books” for the attraction of their customers; and thus another step in the evolution of banking had taken place.

In case the contract is acceptable to both, now it is ready to open the account formally.
A major function of any banking system is the transfer of funds from one client or one place to another. By providing this service to the customer the bank earns a lot of income in the form of service charges. This department deals with local currency remittance i.e. remittance from one city to another without actually carrying the currency.

- Demand Drafts (DD)
- Pay Order (PO)

Mail Transfer (MT)
Every banker acts both as a paying as well as a collecting banker, It is however an important function of crossed cheques. A large part of this work is carried out through the bankers clearing house.
A clearing house is a place where representative of all banks of the city get together and settle the receipts and payment of cheques drawn on each other. As the collecting banker runs certain risks in receipt of their ownership the law has provided certain protections to the banks.
The Negotiable Instrument Act, 1881, lays down hat drawer or holder of a Cheques or draft may cross the instrument generally or specially. It further lies down that crossed Cheques can only be paid to a banker, who collects it for a customer in good faith and without negligence.
Future Prospects of the Organization.
The board of the directors and management of the MCB bank truly believe in the resilience of Pakistani nation to overcome the political and economics challenges face up by the country. We believe that the country fundamentals give it an edge to recover better then many nations from the global financial crises. So the internship report on Muslim Commercial bank(MCB) is giving true finding about future prospects of the organization.
We intend to keep investing in and nurturing the abundant natural and human resources of Pakistan.

MCB’s is exploring new markets and plans to open more overseas operations once the global financial markets start showing sign of sustainable recovery and growth in business. Meanwhile we are focusing on consolidating our position abroad in the existing operation.
During the internship I worked in many departments. I feel that there is lack of staff, due to this reason an each worker has to do a lot of works and responsibilities.
I judge that there was lack of trained people and motivation. So the efficiency and effectiveness are affected. It seems low advertisement Of MCB BANK. Therefore after writing internship report on MCB i have reached at this point that MCB worth in marked is good as compare to other bank.
MCB should continue with the same spirit to serve the Pakistani citizens in the country and all over the world. The financial position of the bank is very strong, as compared to some of the nationalized banks and even some of the private banks.
MCB has tried to provide the best services and safety to the public by introducing the Rupees Travelers Cheques and by having the largest network of Automated Teller Machines.
