Liquidity crunch finally easing up

2022 Jan 11, 9:19, Kathmandu

Banks and financial institutions' liquidity has finally started to ease. As per the details provided by the Nepal Bankers Association, the deposits have increased by Rs. 58 billion in seven days. During the period, credit worth only Rs. 9 billion has been disbursed.

According to the association, the deposit in the bank has increased from Rs. 4.2 trillion to Rs. 4.3 trillion while credit jumped from 4 trillion to 4.1 trillion.

The decision of the Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) to allow the banks to count up to 80 percent of the balance of the local levels in the bank as a deposit has a positive impact. Similarly, interbank interest rates have also declined.
