  This paper examines the efficiency and productivity of the banking industry in Iran, consideringdifferent ownership system of banks and different definations of bank's output and input. Moreover, in this study, the inclusion of undesirable outputs in the bank's performance is evaluated. The Multi-Frontier Malmquist-Luenberger Productivity Index applied to examine the performance of the banking system in Iran. The results of the statistical tests showed that the inclusion of the undesirable output had a significant effect on the efficiency of the banking system. Therefore, the lack of attention to such risks and undesirable outputs leads to an inaccurate estimation of the performance of the banks. On the other hand, adopting different determinations of output and input in banking system, causing different results in the banking performance but considering two different banks ownership in Iran has no significant impact on banking performance. The average efficiency in public banks is more than private banks performance when we consider the model under intermediary and product approach of defining banks output and input. In the case of profit approach, the efficiency of private banks is more than that of public banks.
