Janata Bank PLC

Janata Bank PLC traces its origins back to the aftermath of Bangladesh’s hard-won independence in 1971. Following a nine-month war against the West Pakistani occupation army, Bangladesh emerged as an independent and sovereign state, albeit with a devastated economy. The reconstruction of the nation’s financial infrastructure became an urgent imperative amid the ruins left by the conflict.

In response to this pressing need, the decision was made to merge several banks that had been operating in the region. This initiative aimed to consolidate resources and establish stronger financial institutions capable of supporting the rebuilding efforts. Thus, in 1972, Janata Bank was established through the amalgamation of the erstwhile United Bank Limited and Union Bank Limited under the Banks Nationalization Order (President’s Order No. 26) of 1972.

On November 15, 2007, Janata Bank underwent a significant transformation when it was registered with the Joint Stock of Registrars and restructured as a public limited company under the name Janata Bank Limited. Subsequently, in accordance with the 2020 amendment of the Companies Act 1994, the bank was renamed Janata Bank PLC.
