The central bank said the Deposit Protection Corporation has been established as a subsidiary of the State Bank of Pakistan for protection of small depositors in order to ensure financial stability of the system. The objective of the corporation is to compensate the depositors for the loss incurred by them to the extent of protected deposits in the event of failure of a member institution, it added.
