    Meezan Bank, Pakistan’s leading Islamic bank has officially commenced operations of Meezan Exchange Company Limited (MECL), its wholly-owned subsidiary in Karachi. MECL will offer remittance and forex services to all customers. As an initial step in its journey, MECL will expand to 10 outlets nationwide within the first month of its launch with accelerated plans to launch 50 outlets within a year.
