Speaking at the occasion, President and CEO HABIBMETRO Bank, Mohsin Ali Nathani said: “HABIBMETRO commissioned this landmark to celebrate the heritage and significance of I.I. Chundrigar Road.

The monument at the I.I. Chundrigar Road will not only contribute to its beauty but also remind the people that there is more to this popular financial street than its usual hustle and bustle.

The I.I. Chundrigar Road houses the head offices of many banks and corporate organizations, including the HABIBMETRO Bank that has a network of 498 branches located across the country.
