July-September 2007 Islamic banks asked to declare profit- sharing ratios (The News/ Business Recorder/ December 01, 2007) The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) directed all Islamic banking institutions (IBIs) to update weightages and profit-sharing ratios on their websites by December 6, 2007. Banks use weightages and profit-sharing ratios to calculate distribution of profit as per Shariah laws cov- ering IBIs. The SBP observed that only a few IBIs were regularly updating their weightages and profit-sharing ratios on the websites, before the beginning of the pe- riod concerned, which the central bank termed a disap- pointing situation. Taking a strict notice of this slack- ness on the part of IBIs, the SBP directed IBIs to make sure that relevant weightages and ratios are updated before start of the period concerned. SBP said that weightages & profit sharing ratios must be made available to all constituents before beginning of the period concerned besides of making it available on website SBP also directed all banks to prominently dis- play the statement of weightages & profit sharing ratios in their Islamic banking branches. In addition, SBP pointed out that the statement declaring weightages & profit sharing ratios must at the minimum contain date of declaration, period for which they remain effective, all categories/pools & bank's equity share and their weighatage, types, sizes, tiers of accounts and actual rates paid during the preceding period.

The SBP also asked for de- tails of commission/ fee arrangement with the author- ized branch and training of human resources in Islamic banking. The SBP circular noted that in terms of Para 10(v) of Annexure III to IBD Circular No.02 of 2004, banks having IBBs may authorize some of their branches to sell Islamic banking deposit schemes in

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
