4.10. Clearing department:

This department has three main jobs. They are:
1. Outward cheque clearing
2. Inward cheque clearing
3. Attending house

4.10.1. Inward Cheque Clearing

Whenever any branch of Uttara Bank Ltd. receives a cheque of other Bank to collect money, then the branch sends the cheque to its Head Office. The Head Office arranges the cheques separately by the name of different bank and then it send to the respective bank for clearance by the clearinghouse. Those cheques of different Bank to collect money for the ordered person are called Inward Cheque for clearing. Then these cheques go for entry in to the Inward Registry Book and Database of Clearing Department.

Bangladesh Bank conducts this job of clearinghouse name house. This is done twice a day- First house and Return house. First house is to deliver cheques and collect cheques from other banks. Return house is to return the honored cheques. The practice among the bank is to give only the name of those cheques, which were not honored.

Note: Bangladesh Bank keeps separate A/C for the entire bank and settles the balance considering the flow of cheque in both ways that is Inward & Outward.

As soon as the principal branch gets the clearance it sends an Inter Branch Transaction Advice (EBTA) to the branch, who has sent the cheque for collection. Receiving the IBTA is considered as clearance for the payment to the party.

4.10.2. Outward Cheque Clearing:

This is the opposite flow of the Inward cheque clearance. When UBL's cheque sends to other person of other Bank, that Bank will do the same thing to claim money from Uttara Bank Ltd.. With the same procedure like inward clearing of that Bank. At the time of Outward Cheque for clearing, the things must have to be checked: The Clearing Seal, The Endorsement Seal, and The Branch Seal.

4.10.3. Cost of clearing

The collection cost normally varies with the distance and UBL does not take any charge for collection within Dhaka City or within the district. But when anyone issue check of UBL without having enough sufficient money in the account, the clearing dept. will cut Tk.25 fine for this.

4.11. L.B.C

The word LBC means Local Bills for Collection. It is applied on transaction between inter branch. Issuing cheque/DD from one branch to another branch of the same Bank. Suppose Moulovibazar branch have issued a cheque to Azimpur branch. After received the cheque the Azimpur branch will give a seal of Crossing, LBC seal and Endorsement seal on that check and will issue forwarding on Moulovibazar Branch.

4.12. IBTA:

Inter Bank Transaction Account

4.13. I.B.C

IBC means Inward Bills for Collection. It is the reverse of LBC. In this case Moulovibazar branch will receive cheque and give a seal of Crossing, LBC and Endorsement seal on the cheque and send it to Azimpur branch with an Advise.

The transaction will be as follows:

Check A/C Debt.
IBTA Gulshan Cr.
