CONCLUSION The banking system of a country is not isolated from its socio-political, economic, administrative and legal environments. Though a number of regulatory, supervisory and structural reform measures have been initiated over the years to eradicate the problems of banking sector in Bangladesh, the full benefits of such actions could not yet be derived due to lack of parallel development in other sectors.
