EVOLUTION OF BANKING STRUCTURE IN PAKISTAN

At the time of independence there were only 487 branches of banks working in Pakistan. The economy of Pakistan was largely dependent on Indian banks. There were only 2 Muslim owned banks in sub-continent and they were Habib bank and Australasian Bank. Due to lack of resources and communication network most of the banks were closed and a no of branches were reduced to 195 in June 1948.

To overcome immediate problems like issuance of currency, exchange control etc. The reserve bank of India was allowed to act as a central bank of Pakistan.

At that time there were 19 branches of foreign bank working in Pakistan .the govt of Pakistan took over exchange control from reserve bank of India on April 1st.

On July 1st 1948 the state bank of Pakistan was founded as a central bank of the

country and inaugurated by Quaid –e –Azam.The main reasons establishment of SBP were to:

(6)

1. To overcome problem of public debt management and exchange control. 2. Indian govt had withheld share of Pakistan amounting to rs.75 crore. Right after the formation of SBP, Habib Bank Ltd was encouraged to expand its branches, National Bank of Pakistan was also established in 1949 .THE first development finance institution was Pakistan industrial and credit Investment Corporation, which was formed in 1947 to encourage industrial sector in Pakistan.

In 1959, United Bank Ltd was formed.

In 1961, Industrial Development of Pakistan was established. In 1962, National Investment Trust was formed.

In 1966, Investment Corporation of Pakistan was established to encourage investment in the country.

In 1973, national development Finance Corporation was reestablished for providing short-term loans.

On 1st January 1974, govt. of Pakistan nationalized all banks and

were brought down under these names:

 HABIB BANK LTD

 ALLIED BANK LTD

 UNITED BANK LTD

 MUSLIM COMMERCIAL BANK LTD

But now the Financial Structure of Pakistan can be broadly categorized into scheduled Banks and Non-Banking Financial Institutions (NBFIs). There are 13 private commercial banks, 4 privatized commercial banks, and 3 nationalized commercial banks and 21 foreign banks.
