Industrial productivity is an important source of overall industrial growth. This paper has examined the role of commercial banks in determining the industrial productivity in the case of Pakistan. Partial productivity or total factor Productivity will be taken as a dependent variable and the impact of credit disbursed to industrial sector will be examined along with other institutional credits are selected as independent variables. Time series data from 1972-2015 has been obtained from Pakistan Economic Surveys and World Development Indicator to observe the long- run relationship among the variables. ADF has been applied for checking the stationary status of the data series. Diagnostic tests have been applied to examine the validity of the results. The estimated results show that commercial bank credit and labor force participation rate have a positive and significant impact on industrial productivity in the case of Pakistan. Income per capita has a negative and significant impact on industrial productivity in the case of Pakistan. So, if the government of Pakistan wants to enhance industrial productivity, it has to provide credit with skill labor force to its industrial sector.
