About Us / Departments / Domestic Market & Monetary Management Department  

Domestic Markets and Monetary Management Department (DMMD) was created in September 2006, as a result of a comprehensive restructuring within State Bank of Pakistan, with the objective of transforming the central bank into a dynamic institution more responsive to the growing sophistication in financial markets.

Similarly, all policy related work pertaining to Cash Reserve Requirements (CRR) and Statutory Liquidity Requirements (SLR) and functions pertaining to Financial Derivatives Business Regulations, previously performed by Banking Surveillance Department (BSD), have been transferred to DMMD.
