1. Background of the Study
Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal. It is situated in south
Asia between two huge and rapid economically progressive countries namely
China and India.Nepal is a least developed country in the world and large
numbers of peoples are living still below the poverty line. Various factors like the
landlocked situation, poor resource mobilization, lack of entrepreneurs, lack of
institutional commitment, erratic government policies and political instability are
the major responsible for the slow pace ofeconomic development in past, since

economic development in country.

Banking systems play a very important role in the economic life of the nation. The
health of the economic is closely related to the soundness of its banking system. In
a developing country like Nepal the banking system as a whole plays a vital role in
the progress of economic development. A bank as a matter of fact is just like a
heart in the economic structure and the Capital provided by it is like blood in it. As
long as blood is in circulation the organs will remain sound and healthy if the
blood is not supplied to any Organ then that part would become useless and same
thing happen in the nation if the fund is not provided to productive sector, country
economy will be destroyed. Sustainable economy and its growth would almost be
impossible without the availability of suitable banking services. First of all,
banking promotes savings and mobilizes the saving in productive sector thus;
banks play an important role in the economic development of the nation. Hence,
the performance of commercial banks can have a markedinfluence on the
development of an economy in the developing country like Nepal.
