them; their needs. They feel comfortable with MCB; its their bank; it responds to them; listens to them;
partners with them; grows with them. That is why it is one of the leading commercial banks of the
country, providing a wide range of modem banking services. At present, the banking network consists of
over 1000 branches along with controlling offices known as Area Head offices and Regional Head
offices. These controlling offices are responsible for the smooth operation of the bank on National &
international levels. The entire financial and operational objectives are achieved with the Human

profits have been hit by the need to increase provisions coverage and restructuring costs associated with
the downsizing of the workforce and branch network, whilst there is some need to boost provisions, these
charges (necessary to bring the bank back into shape) are largely over. It has also slowly received
permission from the SBP to shut down a number of unprofitable branches.
