The NBL assistant CEO said that the nation's first bank would help the GC to collect its revenues from across the country and thus provide it centrally.
He said that the NBL has made an outstanding performance in having largest number of account holders in prosperity saving account compared to the other banks. He also urged the GC to use the NBL for payment of purchases.
On the occasion, Executive Chairman of the GC Krishna Murari Bhandari said that the GC was getting upgraded technologically with new advanced printing machines and other related human as well as technological resources.
"We both the GC and the NBL are nation's first institution in their respective field; the GC is the first media house while the NBL is the first bank. It is a matter of happiness that we are also neigbours in terms of our central offices, and by gifting the TV set to us at the online office, you have also given to us a message that we should be faster in disseminating news than the TV channels. And we will do that," Bhandari said.
He said that the gift has further renewed the relations between the two organisations. "As the GC is a platform, the NBL could use it to communicate with its stakeholders promptly by providing us information and advertisements. I strongly believe that the NBL will continue providing us advertisement and information as in the past and our relations will further flourish."
