Traditional money lenders till 1920-30 performed entire banking in the state of Jammu and Kashmir at exorbitant interest rates. At the same time some banks functional but at a very limited scale, such as Punjab national bank, grind lays bank and imperial bank of india.The role of these banks was reduced to the acceptance of the deposits, as they could not grant loans and advances to the people of the state owing to the statutory limitations. Under this scenario banks could not ameliorate the financial and the social position of people of the state. To overcome this critical situation then the maharaja of this state convinced an idea of setting up of a state bank in the state. After prolonged exercises and deliberations of the assignment for establishment of “Jammu and Kashmir Bank Ltd”was given to the late sir Sorabji N Pochkkanwala, then managing director of the central bank of India. Mr. S N Pochkkhanwala formulated a scheme on 24:09:1930,suggesting establishment of a semi state bank with participation in capital by state and public under the control of state government. Thus the bank was formally incorporated on 1 st of October 1938 and commenced business from 4 th July 1939 at its registered office, residency road Srinagar Kashmir.
