1947 to 1974 Australasia BankAustralasia Bank was the only fully functional Muslim Bank on Pakistan territory on August the 14th, 1947. It had been severely hit by the riots in East Punjab. The bank was identified with the Pakistan Movement. At the time of independence all the branches in India, (Amritsar, Batala, Jalandhar, Ludhaina, Delhi and Angra (Agra)) were closed down. New Branches were opened in Karachi, Rawalpindi, Peshawar, Sialkot, Sargodha, Jhang, Gujranwala and Kasur. Later it network spread to Multan & Quetta. The Bank financed trade in cloth and food grains and thus played an important role in maintaining consumer supplies during riot affected early months of 1948. Despite the difficult conditions prevailing and the substantial set back in the Bank’s business in India, Australasia Bank made a profit of Rs 50,000 during 1947-48. By the end of 1970 it had 101 branches. Unfortunately it lost 51 branches in the separation of East Pakistan which became Bengladesh. The bank did well in despite losing lot of its assets. By the end of 1973 the bank had 186 branches in West Pakistan.

The Allied Bank storyKARACHI, July 31: The chequered story of the Allied Bank of Pakistan took another turn on Monday when the State Bank Pakistan issued a Letter of Acceptance (LOA) to the consortium of Ibrahim Leasing Limited Group who had offered the highest bid of Rs14.2 billion for acquisition of 325 million additional shares. Under the deal, the per share price of ABL comes to a little over Rs43. The bank was first offered to the Allied Management Group, representing 7,500 employees in September 1991, at a negotiated price of Rs70 a share. The employees had offered Rs30 a share as the Muslim Commercial Bank was earlier sold out in March 1991 at Rs56 a share. The employees were persuaded to buy 26 per cent of the shares for which an overwhelming majority was offered house building and motorcycle purchase loans.
