The study identified 144 disclosure factors required complying by the Islamic banks under traditional and Shari’ah regulations. These factors were classified into nine including Company Profile Items (CPI) (7), Accounting Policy Items (API) (12), Balance Sheet Items (Assets) (18), Balance Sheet Items (Liabilities) (15), Income Statement Items (Cr.) (9), Income Statement Items (Dr.)(11), Ratios, Statistics and Other Details (RSD) (18), Projections and Budgetary Disclosure (PBD) (27) and finally Measurement and Valuation Method (MVM) (27). The study found that on an average, Islamic banks complied the highest 94.28% in case of company profile items and the lowest 38.57% in case of projections and budgetary disclosure.
