This study applied more flexible cost functional form, Fourier Flexible Functional Form, and tested the validity of the Translog cost functional form as to estimate the cost function incorporating risk and loan's quality for banking industry. Meanwhile, the study extended four different cost efficiency measures for banking industry not only among different sized banks but also between commercial banks and agricultural banks. And thereafter, by evaluating these efficiency measures, banks will identify sources of inefficiency, which should aid banks in developing approaches to improve their operational policies, procedures, and performance.
