'ICT auditing important to combat banking sector fraudulence'

RAJSHAHI, Aug 9: Promotion of information and communication technology (ICT) based auditing could be the crucial means of combating banking sector fraudulence. Large-scale application of ICT is also important for making the banking transactions and other services transparent, time-fitting and client-friendly in the present era of globalization. The observations came at the closing and certificate-giving session of a four-day training titled "Auditing Procedure in IT Environment" at ICT Division's Computer Training Laboratory in Rajshahi Krishi Unnayan Bank (RAKUB) here on Wednesday, reports BSS. Some 20 mid-level officers of the bank joined the course. RAKUB Managing Director Kazi Shanaul Haque and Deputy General Manager of ICT Division Ashok Kumar Acharya attended and addressed the session as chief and special guests respectively with its training institute Principal Ataur Rahman in the chair. Assistant General Manager of ICT Division Md Arifuzzaman also spoke. "We have enormous opportunities of infusing dynamism into the banking activities through best uses of ICT," said Kazi Alamgir. He asked the participants to discharge their duties with utmost sincerity and honesty to brighten the image of the bank. He said there is no alternative to computerisation to reach speedy and quality banking services to the clients in the present era of ICT. "You have to build yourselves as competent bankers through the best uses of the knowledge likely to be acquired from the training," said Alamgir. There should be devotion to improving living and livelihood condition of the public in general and the farmers in particular. RAKUB, headquartered in Rajshahi, has been running its banking business in all the 16 northwest districts of Rajshahi and Rangpur divisions targeting the farmers and their other sub-sectors.
