The Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) is preparing to announce the monetary policy for the ongoing fiscal year 2080-81, which is expected to be publicized by the end of the first week of Shrawan. Narayan Prasad Pokhrel, the Deputy Spokesperson and Information Officer of NRB, revealed in a phone conversation with Sharesansar that the central bank has devised internal procedures to ensure the monetary policy is made public by Shrawan 07, which falls on the upcoming Sunday.
Narayan Prasad Pokhrel stated, “The internal procedures of the Nepal Rastra Bank have been designed in a way that allows for the monetary policy to be publicized by Shrawan 07.” This indicates that the necessary steps and protocols have been put in place within the central bank to ensure the timely release of the monetary policy.
In related news, Governor Maha Prasad Adhikari of NRB is expected to return to Nepal from his foreign trip on Wednesday. Previously, there were reports that a delegation of 28 members, led by the governor himself, would be traveling to Canada. The purpose of this trip was to engage in discussions with the assessment team of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) in order to prevent Nepal from being placed on the “grey list” for money laundering.
The announcement of the monetary policy by the NRB is an important event that will have implications for the fiscal year 2080-81 in Nepal. It is expected that Governor Maha Prasad Adhikari’s return from his foreign trip will coincide with the release of the monetary policy, indicating that the central bank is actively addressing both domestic and international financial matters.
