The Banking Mohtasib (Ombudsman) of Pakistan was set up in May 2005 by the Government of Pakistan to provide efficient and transparent mechanism to resolve disputes between customers and banks.

Any person not satisfied with the resolution provided by his/her bank can file a complaint with Banking Mohtasib. Banks can also lodge complaints against other banks.
