Janata Bank’s regulations are a form of government regulations which subject banks to certain requirements, restrictions and guidelines. This regulatory structure ensures transparency between banking institutions and the individuals with whom JBL conducts business, among other things.

Immediately after the emergence of Bangladesh in 1971, the Bank emerged as ‘Janata Bank’ by combining the erstwhile United Bank Limited and Union Bank Limited under the Bangladesh Banks Nationalization Order (President’s Order-26) of 1972. ‘Janata Bank Limited’ has been corporatised on 15 November, 2007 as per Clause (1) of Article 27A of The Bangladesh Banks (Nationalisation) Order 1972.
