In this report at first I described MBL as a banking organization and then analysis background and development of the bank. The report provides a general view on Mercantile Bank Limited, theoretical aspects related to general banking as well as gives an idea about customer services provided. But I mainly describe those general banking services that are available at Engineers’ Institute Branch. Here I also discuss the credit department and foreign exchange services in short. This study also tries to clarify the operating procedures of general banking department of MBL as a commercial bank and also tries to identify some aspects of further improvement in operations. I have included various points inside the report to highlight the general banking sector’s performance of Mercantile Bank Limited. At last, I find some problems of the bank that are hurdles to the improvement of this bank. To overcome these problems, I have suggested some recommendations and conclude the report.
