KATHMANDU: A report on digital transactions between Nepal and India has been submitted to Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) Governor, Maha Prasad Adhikari.
A team from the Economic Media Operators Association of Nepal (EMAN) prepared the report after conducting studies in various cities in India including the Indian capital New Delhi for two weeks.
The Association handed over the report to the Governor on Sunday amid a program organized at NRB, informed EMAN President Royal Acharya.
Receiving the report, Governor Adhikari extended thankfulness to the EMAN for conducting the study on cross-country digital transactions, which he believed, would further facilitate the Indian tourists visiting Nepal.
“There is the issue of payment for the Indian tourists visiting Nepal. Also, those Nepalis going to India for study and for pilgrims used to face difficulties,” said Governor Adhikari, adding that the cross-country digital transaction would aid in making payment easier.
He pledged to do more homework for this to materialize and said that the report prepared by EMAN would be useful to the NRB.
Meanwhile, EMAN also handed over the report to Sunil KC, President of the Nepal Bankers Association today itself.
It may be noted that Nepal and India recently signed a MoU for cross-border digital payment which is expected to facilitate people of both countries for digital transactions.
