A bank or banker is a financial institution that acts as a payment agent for customers, and borrows and lends money. Banks acts as payment agents by conducting current accounts for customers, paying cheques drawn by customers on the bank, and collecting cheques deposited to the customer's current accounts. Banks also enable customer payments via other payment methods such as telegraphic transfer, EFTPOS, and ATM. Banks borrow money by accepting funds deposited on current account, accepting term deposits and by issuing debt securities such as banknotes and bonds. Banks lend money by making advances to customers on current account, by making installment loans, and by investing in marketable debt securities and other forms of lending. Banks provide almost all payment services, and a bank account is considered indispensable by most businesses, individuals and governments. Non-banks that provide payment services such as remittance companies are not normally considered an adequate substitute for having a bank account.


“Banking means the accepting, for the purpose of lending, or investment, of deposits of money from the public, repayable on demand or otherwise, and withdraw able by checque, draft, order or otherwise.”
“Banking companies mean companies which transact the business of banking in Pakistan.”

Banks borrow most funds borrowed from households and non-financial businesses, and lend most funds lent to households and non-financial businesses, but non-bank lenders provide a significant and in many cases adequate substitute for bank loans, and money market funds, cash management trusts and other non-bank financial institutions in many cases provide an adequate substitute to banks for lending savings to.

Definition of a Bank
A bank is defined as a person who carries on the business of banking, which is:
• • •

conducting current accounts for customers paying cheques drawn on him, and collecting cheques for his customers.

In most English common law jurisdictions there is a Bills of Exchange Act that codifies the law in relation to negotiable instruments, including cheques, and this Act contains a statutory definitions of the term banker : ' banker includes a body of persons, whether incorporated or not, who carry on the business of banking' (Section 2, Interpretation). Although this definition seems circular, it is actually functional, because it ensures that the legal basis for bank transactions such as cheques do not depend on how the bank is organised or regulated

Origin of the word
There are various views about the origin of the word “bank”. The 1st view is that The name bank derives from the Italian word banco "desk/bench", used during the Renaissance by Florentines bankers, who used to make their transactions above a desk covered by a green tablecloth. However, there are traces of banking activity even in ancient times. The other point of view is that it has originated from German word “banc” which means a joint stock firm. In fact, the word traces its origins back to the Ancient Roman Empire, where moneylenders would set up their stalls in the middle of enclosed courtyards called macella on a long bench called a bancu, from which the words banco and bank are derived. As a moneychanger, the merchant at the bancu did not so much invest money as merely convert the foreign currency into the only legal tender in Rome- that of the Imperial Mint.

Islamic banking
Islamic banking refers to a system of banking or banking activity that is consistent with Islamic law (Sharia) principles and guided by Islamic economics. In particular, Islamic law prohibits usury, the collection and payment of interest, also commonly called riba in Islamic discourse. In addition, Islamic law prohibits investing in businesses that are considered unlawful, or haraam (such as businesses that sell alcohol or pork, or businesses that produce media such as gossip columns or pornography, which are contrary to Islamic values). In the late 20th century, a number of Islamic banks were created, to cater to this particular banking market.

Islamic banking has the same purpose as conventional banking except that it operates in accordance with the rules of Shariah, known as Fiqh al-Muamalat (Islamic rules on transactions). The basic principle of Islamic banking is the sharing of profit and loss and the prohibition of riba´ (interest). Amongst the common Islamic concepts used in Islamic banking are profit sharing (Mudharabah), safekeeping (Wadiah), joint venture (Musharakah), cost plus (Murabahah), and leasing (Ijarah). In an Islamic mortgage transaction, instead of loaning the buyer money to purchase the item, a bank might buy the item itself from the seller, and re-sell it to the buyer at a profit, while allowing the buyer to pay the bank in installments. However, the fact that it is profit cannot be made explicit and therefore there are no additional penalties for late payment. In order to protect itself against default, the bank asks for strict collateral. The goods or land is registered to the name of the buyer from the start of the transaction. This arrangement is called Murabaha. Another approach is Ijara wa Iqtina, which is similar to real-estate leasing. Islamic banks handle loans for vehicles in a similar way (selling the vehicle at a higher-than-market price to the debtor and then retaining ownership of the vehicle until the loan is paid). There are several other approaches used in business deals. Islamic banks lend their money to companies by issuing floating rate interest loans. The floating rate of interest is pegged to the company's individual rate of return. Thus the bank's profit on the loan is equal to a certain percentage of the company's profits. Once the principal amount of the loan is repaid, the profitsharing arrangement is concluded. This practice is called Musharaka. Further, Mudaraba is venture capital funding of an entrepreneur who provides labor while financing is provided by the bank so that both profit and risk are shared. Such participatory arrangements between capital and labor reflect the Islamic view that the borrower must not bear all the risk/cost of a failure, resulting in a balanced distribution of income and not allowing lender to monopolize the economy.

And finally, Islamic banking is restricted to Islamically acceptable deals, which exclude those involving alcohol, pork, gambling, etc. Thus ethical investing is the only acceptable form of investment, and moral purchasing is encouraged. Islamic banking is synonymous with fullreserve banking, with banks achieving a 100% reserve ratio. However, in practice, this is not always the case. Islamic banks have grown recently in the Muslim world but are a very small share of the global banking system. Micro-lending institutions founded by Muslims, notably Grameen Bank, use conventional lending practices and are popular in some Muslim nations, especially Bangladesh, but some do not consider them true Islamic banking. However, Muhammad Yunus, the founder of Grameen Bank and microfinance banking, and other supporters of microfinance, argue that the lack of collateral or excessive interest in micro-lending is consistent with the Islamic prohibition of usury (riba).

Although the wheel's primary purpose is travel. When we tryto imagine life without a source of light other than the sun. it is immediately obvious why we have chosen the light bulb as the first of man's five achievements to which we are paying a tribute. The invention of the wheel did more than just provide a transport related solution. including all kinds of displays such as LCDs. machines around the world rely on cogs to keep production going. It paved the way for other advancements that have followed ever since. .The light bulb arguably did more to change the face of the world than any other invention in history. The millions of wheels across the globe. where the wheel is indispensable. Every day. one of the major subsequent uses is its industrial application. from aircraft tyres to tiny cogs are deserving of our tribute as they continue to keep the world moving.

. "hello". and the internet. From books to post-it notes and from tissue paper to money. to name a few. it is a standing ovation to the one piece of technology that has been the preface for a book whose chapters include the fax.The first word spoken on a telephone. the telephone was more than an independent innovation. many of the things we are surrounded by today owe their origin to papyrus. the earliest form of paper. If it wasn't for the invention of papyrus. but its applications are such that the world would be incomplete without it. cellular telephones. It spawned a wave of technological advancement. As the word is echoed by millions of people on phones everyday. more than tells the story of communication through time. Like the bulb. you probably would not be holding this annual report in your hands. It is an invention that we often take for granted.

our strong financial backing is the cornerstone of Meezan's Bank strength. Comprehensive Business Solutions The wheel was a solution to many of mankind's needs. deeds. transactions. these five achievements of man hold special significance.

For us. It is also the concept of time which is so important. Largest Branch Network The telephone. is just as indispensable for our branch network. but there can be no dispute that the seconds. that it is hard to imagine life without it. Corporate Information . like the mathematical system. essential to all communication. has not existed forever. The origin of the concept of time is a subject of dispute. and the light of knowledge and guidance it spreads. Without it. It is said that time is money – for banks. and its immeasurability. is of significance when examined in view of the Islamic Shariah.
