NRB revokes action against financial institutions

KATHMANDU: Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) has revoked the action against Nepal CSI Development Bank and Arun Finance and Savings — from July 15 — after they have increased their minimum requirement of capital and and injected fresh capital, according to the directives of the NRB.

The central bank has imposed ban on Nepal CSI Development Bank to collect deposits from August 20, 2006 and issued a slew of directives to improve its financial health.

“The NRB has revoked the action after its financial health has improved,” said the central bank.

It has injected fresh capital and maintained the Cash Reserve Ratio (CRR) according to the NRB’s directives.

The NRB had directed it to take Prompt Corrective Action on October 17, 2008.

Similarly, the NRB has also revoked the action against Arun Finance and Savings after it also increased the minimum capital requirement.

The NRB on October 17, 2008 banned Arun Finance and Savings to take deposit and declared a ‘Problematic bank’ under the NRB Act.

Similarly, the NRB has also allowed the suspended directors of the Bank of Kathmandu (BoK) to take part in the special annual general meeting (AGM) and file for candidacy for the directors. The special AGM is going to take place on July 22.

Earlier, the NRB has suspended the BoK board after the controversial decision of its board to ‘call back’ Radhesh Pant from the post of managing director.
