Europe and the Far East.370 billion on December 2000. United Kingdom. This included total earning assets of about Pak Rs.91 billion. which are not producing any income but keep on adding expenditure.  The general out look and interior layout of branches are not as required according to modern banking  NBP bearing up large burden in running those branches. WEAKNESSES  NBP staff especially at lower considers their work as burden. more don't even continue its credit card due mismanagement and lack of control. Using government property for there own need. which comprises treasury securities.  NBP's total assets stood at Pak Rs.268 billion with gross loan portfolio of Pak Rs.National Bank of Pakistan  NBP has an extensive domestic branch network of 1200 (according to the latest data) branches located all over Pakistan.  NBP cash provision as percentage of non performing loans equal to 60% this coverage factor for the non performing loans is the highest amongst the nationalized commercial bank.

 In NBP. streamline internal procedure and creating a delectating climate for technology initiative.  To improve the motivation of staff a merit-based culture is being promoted. Which discourage most of the people to invest in NBP. and not fool proof.  Management to offer specialized services to major corporate including advisory and debt syndication introduces the concept of relationship manager.  NBP has only forty-four on line branches.  Closing of all those branches. 23 .  Customers have to fallow long lengthy procedure for opening of account as well applying for debt.  Comprehensive training programs has been develop to up grade the core banking skills of the existing staff as well as integrate high quality hiring. which are burden on NBP. Such practices are black spot on the face of bank and resulted big losses and fraudulent acts by NBP own employees. NBP current management has boarder vision. Quantum of settlement within different branches is pending because of this updating daily record is becoming very difficult. These actions taken by current management provide a great opportunity for NBP for making it future prosper and can make NBP not less than any modern commercialize bank in Pakistan. most of the time merit not has importance in hiring of employees. Through overhauling the manpower recruitment preservation and performance appraisal system. OPPORTUNITIES Reorganizing efforts going on in the NBP has open many opportunities for NBP to grow.National Bank of Pakistan  NBP is far behind in offering modern banking facility like automated teller machines then other commercial bank in Pakistan as only eighteen branches in all over country have this facility. To achieve above mention objective they have created operation group  Starting of the retail banking initial working.  Setting of target for of making at least 300 branches country wide on line.

24 . These are causing another threat.  Retail banking and consumer banking resulting in the products such as credit cards. housing finance and automobile finance lending to small individual consumers. if not counter will result in significance loss of customers  Recently banks and other financial institutions have introduced innovative schemes to attract deposits. In which MCB is on the top of the list. through lucky draws.  Now banks are using technology which covers the distance no matter how far away any one. housing. electronic funds transfer.

These schemes offer prizes on short and long term fixed deposits. and purchases of automobiles.

 Bank management has to put its all effort to change the prevailing culture of the bank and to put the foundation stone of business oriented culture. In which employees give important to the bank and its customer.  The outlook and interior lay out of the branches is another thing which needs to be improved.  The procedure of taking services from the bank must be made easier and straight forward not involving long difficult procedure for simple task. 25 . These must continue. Plus the technology in the banking which will be necessary for future banking is another week area need to be stressed.  Latest reorganizing efforts are necessary to make it cost effective also making its facility accordingly to modern banking.

To remain in the market bank need to be vigilant in the eyes of customer.  To attract the customer in the future NBP have to make extensive effort to give facilities of retail and consumer banking.
