Tenure of CEO of Commercial Banks in Nepal

If you’re wondering how long does a Chief Executive Officer of a bank remain a Chief Executive, we have the answer right here!

In Nepal, Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) is the governing bank. In simple words, it is the bank of the banks, a national government bank. NRB sets rules and policies to make sure that the financial status of the country as well as the commercial and development banks remain intact.

Similarly, NRB with the help of experts formulates an Act that keeps everyone under a common rule. They call this Act; Banking and Financial Institution Act (BAFIA).

If we dive into this BAFIA, we can find a section where they disclose the tenure of CEO of Commercial Banks in Nepal.

As per this Act, the CEO of a bank can remain the CEO of the same bank for a maximum of 2 terms. Now, each term has 4 years. This means the Chief Officer has a maximum of 8 years as the CEO of a bank.

Does this mean that after 8 years of serving as the CEO, they can never remain the CEO? Well, they can!

To reduce any personal gaining or personal bias, the BAFIA has carefully drafted its rules. A deserving banker can always come back to his/her position but after a certain break.
