Mr. Chintamani Shivakoti and Mr. Shankar Prasad Acharya have been appointed as directors of Nepal Rastra Bank(NRB) through the decision made on cabinet meeting
Shivakoti is the former Deputy Governor of NRB and Acharya is the former Executive Director of NRB.
Two directorships had been vacant since Baishakh when the tenure of previous directors Dr. Shree Ram Poudel and Ramji Regmi expired.
Dilip Dhungana and Dr. Shankar Prasad Acharya, on the other hand, were in line for the position of NRB director. Dhungana and Acharya's names were forwarded to the Election Commission for approval a few weeks ago.
However, the government, appointed Chintamani Shivakoti and Dr. Shankar Prasad Acharya as directors of the NRB as soon as the election was concluded.
