The Bank of Punjab
Pakistan came into being on 14th August, 1947; sufficient banking serviceswere available in the areas forming Pakistan. Out of the total branches of the nearly3,500 in the undivided India, as many as about 1,500 branches were existing in theseareas.It was agreed between the two countries that reserve bank of India shallcontinue to function in the Pakistan territory until 30th September 1948 and thatIndian notes would continue to be legal tender at Pakistan until 30th September 1948.Unfortunately, relationship between the two countries became most strainedimmediately after independence; banking was mostly in the lands of Hindus whoimmediately started transferring their offices and assets into India. As a result most of the banks in Pakistan were closed down and even those which were open were notdoing any effective business.The number of banking office in Pakistan came down to about 200 on 30thJune 1948. Branches of some European banks were also functioning in a limitedmanner, financing in export of crops, and their number was limited to about 20.It was only the Habib bank, which transferred its office from Bombay toKarachi Austral Asia bank was another bank, which was in existence in the Pakistanterritory at the time of independence. Despite of best efforts on the part of governmentof Pakistan, no heady way could be made on this behalf and reserve bank of India wasin no mood to help the new country. Imperial bank of India, agent of the reserve bank of India also started closing down its branches in Pakistan.Reserve bank also refused to advance money to Pakistan to make essential payments such as salaries etc, also Pakistan’s share of Rs.75 billion in cash balancewas with held by bank, causing hardships to the newly born state. In view of thesehopeless state affairs it was agreed between the two countries that reserve bank wouldserve as monetary authority in Pakistan only up to 30th June 1948.
