Leading commercial bank Civil Bank has started its Digital Sudurpashchim campaign in an attempt to reinforce digital payment. The bold mission seeks to enable QR code-based electronic payment from street vendors to supermarkets in areas across the Far-West province.
The bank launched the campaign on the occasion of its 12th anniversary. Senior Deputy Governor of Nepal Rastra Bank Dr. Neelam Dhunganga Timsina was among the attendee at the event held in Dhangadi. She seized the chance to launch the QR-based payment at street cobblers, tempo, and temple donations, etc.
The campaign will help minor to major stores, markets, and street vendors with an easy mobile payment facility. Consistent with the Digital Nepal Framework’s guiding principle, Digital Sudurpashchim will contribute to financial inclusion and help the digital economy.
Mrs. Timsina said that she was delighted to kickstart the digital Sudurpashchim and also pointed out that digital payment remains a top priority for the federal bank.
“Digital payment makes transactions transparent and also helps save cash spent on minting and printing currency outside,” she added.
