Bank Interest Rates in Nepal Who Is Paying High

The bank interest rates in Nepal is decided by Nepal Rastra Bank. But the commercial banks can increase or decrease the interest rate without exceeding maximum or minimum rates set by Nepal Rastra Bank. However, we have pointed both the maximum & minimum interest rate on the savings account, and also the maximum interest rate on fixed deposit for personal & institutional. To get the maximum interest rate in many banks you have to choose the special or premium account type that means you have been charged for account opening or maybe some amount will be on hold until you operate the account. We suggest getting a maximum interest rate kindly choose that bank which has a high interest rate on Normal saving account. Generally, the normal saving account is zero balance account which doesn’t require a minimum balance to open a bank account.

Choose The Best Bank By Comparing Their Services

Let’s talk about not only the interest rates but also about the service of the banks. Many banks are paying high interest but their service is so bad. I’m not going to point the bad service bank name here. But I am going to tell you the banks which provide good service in my opinion. To be honest, in term of service the first name comes in mind is Nepal Investment Bank. There are many instant services where the customer has not to wait for a week or months. Especially the ATM machine works great every time.

The second name come in my mind is Nabil Bank which services also very good. Especially for debit cards & credit cards, where the bank always offering discount & cashback to the customer and even, it supports payment on many of Nepalese & Indian shopping sites too.

The third one is NMB Bank which has a high interest too. The bank is best for its debit cards which support most of the ATMs of our country without any transaction charges. Even withdrawal in India is also a minimum transaction fee among theses all banks.
