Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB) is issuing a repurchase agreement worth Rs 20 billion today. The repo will mature on October 19.

The bank is issuing the repo to prevent the shortage of investment capital in banks and the financial system.

The central bank issues short-term repo when there is a liquidity shortage in the banking system.

Previously, NRB had sent Rs 30 billion to market through repo. Banks and financial institutions (BFIs) use the repo, inter-bank lending and Standing Liquidity Facility (SLF) in case of liquidity crunch.
