INTRODUCTION OF BANKS Banks are the financial institutions. Some authors say that the word bank is derived from the words BancusorBanque which means a bench. The explanation on of this origin is attributed to the fact that the Jews in Lombardy transacted the business of money exchange on the benches in the market place and when the business failed the banco was destroyed by the people. Incidentally the word Bankrupt is said to have been evolved from this practice. STATE BANK OF PAKISTAN It is the central bank of the country and was established on July 1, 1948.

Under the Banks on going branch expansion program fifteen new branches have been added during the years 2001 and 2002 while one more branch will open in December 2002. This would raise the total number of branches to thirty three focusing primarily on the middle market commercial banking segment while blending in the fast growing consumer banking market.
