Kathmandu, June 4:

Dr Tilak Rawal, governor of Nepal Rastra Bank, inaugurated the third central council meeting of Nepal Rastra Bank Employee Association here today. Speaking at the programme, Rawal said that there is a need for evaluation of foreign parties currently working for commercial banks to find out the progress they made. Rawal also said, “NRB is working for the betterment of its employees and is formulating plans for successive increments in salary and allowances for its employees, while cutting off all unwanted expenses of the bank.”

People from every field should promote, preserve and provide reinforcement for democracy which would ultimately benefit the nation, said Harsha Narayan Dhaubadel, president of Federation of Professionals Nepal. “There is a need to exercise ‘practise of freedom’ for sustainable growth of every organisation,” added Dhaubadel.

The other speaker, Nirmal Karki, general secretary of the NRB employee association said that the foreign invasion for the re-engineering of NRB is not appreciable. “Employees of NRB have the capacity to develop the bank, particularly at a time when the performance of foreign consultants in the commercial banks has not been as good as expected,” said Karki

Rawal felicitated Dharma Raj Sapkota, manager at NRB, Biratnagar and Raj Kumar Gurung of general service department for their performance in helping the bank to achieve its goal.

They were selected as the best employees of NRB. Similarly, the branch office at Pokhara and the branch office at Biratnagar were regarded as the best branch committee. Rawal also gave away prizes to the winners of essay competition.
