Nabil inaugurates nine branches

Kathmandu, November 12:

Nabil Bank Ltd has created yet another history in the Nepali banking sector by electronically inaugurating nine branches — from east to west — today.

The nine inaugurated branches are; Birtamod and Damak in eastern Nepal to Hetauda and Narayanghat in central Nepal, and Baglung, Ghorahi, Tulsipur, Dhangadhi and Mahendranagar in the western and far-western Nepal.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Anil Shah, chief executive officer (CEO) of the bank — that has a complete Nepali management — said Nabil bank is increasing its presence allover Nepal to cater its clients international banking services. “The opening of nine new branches exemplifies our commitment to continuously enhance the level of service delivery to our valued customers through enhancement of our branch network,” Shah said adding that the service of Nabil in all the branches is of international standard. All the Nabil branches also have ATMs.

“All customers are equal to us,” he added.

Similarly, Satyendra Pyara Shrestha, chairman of the bank said that Nabil bank is committed to increase the reach of formal banking services across the nation. “It has introduced international standard banking service in Nepal some 24 years ago from Kathmandu,” he said adding that over the two decades it has increased its presence across the most major urban and semi-urban areas.

At present, almost two dozen banks that are in operations are based in urban areas and most fo them are in Kathmandu. However, Nabil is breaking this conventional practise and reaching rural Nepal.

“Now, Nabil is spreading its wings and reaching to the rural Nepal,” Shrestha said.
