The present study was not out of limitations. But it was a great opportunity for me to know the banking activities of Bangladesh specially Premier Bank. Some constraints are as follows:
▪ The main constraints of the dissertation are inadequate access to information, which has hampered the scope of analysis required for the dissertation. ▪ Every organization has their own secrecy that is not revealed to others. While collecting data they did not disclose much information for the sake of organizational confidentiality. ▪ The bank personnel and officials were very busy with their occupational activities. Hence it was little bit difficult for them to help within their high schedule. ▪ Due to time limitations many of the aspects could not be discussed in the dissertation. ▪ Lack of current information.
▪ Very limited published material is available regarding the bank.
