Today, we have the list of base rates of commercial banks in Nepal. Base rate of a bank is the minimum rate that a bank charges its customers. The banks usually add a certain premium to the base rate to determine the interest rate depending on the type of loan the customer is taking.
The base rate of commercial banks includes all cost of funds, cost of liquidity (CRR and SLR), and cost of operation as defined by Nepal Rastra Bank. If a bank has a lower return on government securities than the deposit collection rate, then the bank can add the shortfall in their base rate. The different base rates of commercial banks in Nepal is what makes the interest rate different in different banks.

How does the base rate affect the deposits and loans?
You now have access to the base rates of commercial banks of Nepal. What we can derive from the base rates is that lower the base rate, lower the interest on loans. However, base rates also affect the interest on the deposit. In this case, if the bank has a lower base rate, then you will also get lower interest rates on your deposits and saving on the bank.
