History of Oriental Bank of Commerce:
Oriental Bank of Commerce (Hindi:ओरिएंटल बैंक ऑफ कॉमर्स) is an India-based bank which was established in Lahore (currently in Pakistan), is one of the public sector banks in India.

Rai Bahadur Lala Sohan Lal, the first Chairman of the Bank, founded OBC in 1943 in Lahore. Within four years of its coming into existence, OBC had to face Partition. The bank had to close down its branches in the newly formed Pakistan and shift its registered office from Lahore to Amritsar.
Lala Karam Chand Thapar, the then Chairman of the Bank, fulfilled the commitments and promises made to the depositors-customers from Pakistan and paid every rupee to its departing customers.

The Bank has witnessed many ups and downs since its establishment. The period of 1970-76 is said to be the most challenging phase in the history of the OBC Bank.
At one time profit plummeted, that prompted the owner of the bank, the Thapar House, to sell / close the bank. Then employees and leaders of the Bank came forward to rescue the Bank. The owners were moved and had to change their decision of selling the bank and in turn they decided to improve the position of the bank with the active cooperation and support of all the employees. Their efforts bore fruits and performance of the bank improved significantly. This was the turning point in the history of the bank. The bank was nationalised on 15 April 1980. At that time OBC ranked 19th among the 20 nationalised banks.

The bank has progressed year by year and crossing the Business Mix mark of 2 lac crores as on 31 March 2010 making it the seventh largest Public Sector Bank in India
