Bangladesh inherited its banking structure from the British regime and had 44 banks and other financial institutions before the partition of India in 1947.

The Dhaka bank established in 1806 as the first commercial bank in the Bangladesh region of British India. Bengal bank the first British- patronized modern bank established in India in 1784 had opened its two branches in 1873 in Sirajgonj and Chittagong of Bangladesh region. Later in 1862, the Bengal bank purchased the Dhaka bank and opened its first branch in Dhaka in the same year by reconstituting and merging the Dhaka bank. Thereafter, another branch of Bengal bank was opened in Chandpur in 1900 there were six other branches of Bangladesh Bank in operation in the territory of Bangladesh until the partition of British India in 1947.

Following the emergence of Pakistan in 1947 state bank of Pakistan the central bank of the country came into being in July 1948. Later the national Bank of Pakistan a strong commercial bank was set up in 1949. In all 36 schedule commercial banks were in operation in the whole Pakistan until 1971. Pakistanis owned most of these banks and only three of them namely; National Bank of Pakistan, Habib Bank Ltd. and the Australia Bank Ltd. had one branch of each in East Pakistan in 1949. During 1950-58 three other Pakistani owned banks Premier Bank Ltd., Bank of Bhowalpur Ltd. and Muslim commercial bank had opened their branch in East Pakistan. East Pakistan had only to banks owned by local business groups with headquarters in Dhaka. These were the Eastern Mercantile bank Ltd. (presently Pubali Bank Ltd) and Eastern Banking corporation Ltd (presently Uttara Bank Ltd) established in 1959 and 1965 respectively.

In the beginning of 1971, there were 1130 branches of 12 banks in operation in East Pakistan. The foundation of independent banking system in

Bangladesh was laid through the establishment of Bangladesh Bank in 1972 by presidential order no – 127 of 1972 (which took effect on 16th December, 1971). Though the order, the eastern branch of the former state bank of Pakistan at Dhaka was renames the Bangladesh Banks a full fledged office of the central bank of Bangladesh and the entire undertaking of the state bank of Pakistan in, and in relation to Bangladesh has been delivered to the bank.

The Bangladesh Banks (Nationalization) order enacted in 1972 nationalized all banks except foreign ones. Six nationalized Banks were formed through margin the exiting banks of that period.

The rate of growth and development of banking sector in the country was extremely slow until 1983 when the govt. allowed to establish private banks and started denationalization process. Initially, the Uttara Bank in the same year and thereafter, the Pubali Bank, and the Rupali Bank in 1986.There were no domestic private commercial banks in Bangladesh Until 1982 when the Arab- Bangladesh Banks (AB Bank) commenced private commercial banking in the country. Five more commercial banks came up in 1983 and initiated a moderate growth in banking financial institutions.

Banking structure in Bangladesh has under gone a rigid regulatory during the period 1972-83 which was repression in nature. Through out this period, the socioeconomic objective led NCBs suffered an infirmity due to absence of competition, and also from both allocative and operational in inefficiency.

In order to established and promote systematic stability and efficiency optimal competition and enable the banks to safe guard themselves from fragility, the country banking structure has been reorganized and is now governed under a gradually liberalized regulatory environment.

At present the Bank Company Act 1991 is the main law relating to regulation of banking in Bangladesh. All legal requirements for establishment of banks and banking operation are incorporated in this Act. One of the main objectives of recently initiated banking sector reform is to open up the market for private sector banks and encourage competition. The ultimate objective is to improve the quality of banking services through promoting operational managerial and fund mgt.
