Meezan Bank, Pakistan’s first and largest Islamic Bank, has launched a first-of-its-kind facility in Pakistan by providing its customers the ability to apply online for opening an account.
The ‘Online Account Opening Form’, now available on the Bank’s Website will enable people to fill and submit the Account Opening Form digitally through the Bank’s website for opening of Individual, Joint or Minor accounts (both Regular and Premium Banking). The digital form will automatically be transmitted to the branch, where the applicant wants to open his / her account, for further processing at their end, saving time and effort.
Commenting on the new digital process, Mr. Ariful Islam, Deputy CEO of Meezan Bank said, “Our purpose of introducing the Online Account Opening Form was to reach out to the new generation, which has embraced the internet as a lifestyle and make the account opening process as easy as possible”.
Meezan is the first bank to offer this facility, as at present no other local bank is offering this service.
