margin for year 2059/60 to 2062/63 is 4.42%, 4.62%, 2.00%, & 2.01% respectively. In
F/y 2060/61 NIM is income than F.Y. 2059/60 but the fiscal year 2061/62 & 2062/63
have been discovered And 2062/63 NIM is just greater than F.Y. 2061/62.

(III) Interest spread

At the end of the study of the following recommendations are highlighted in this project
work report, as a narrator I recommend about the SCBNL. There are as follows:

(1) Capital structure shows that portion of debt capital is more than equity capital. So, it
should increase in equity portion and reduce the debt capital far the stander.
(2) The bank should also maintain present sound management and extend more facilities to
its customers to increase its customers to increase its transactions.
(3) The bank should keep eye as the factor that is causing lens profit to the business.
(4) The management of SCBNL should formulate proper plan and strategy and corrective
action by utilizing of financial resources effectively.
(5) Although it is a profit oriented bank, it should not forget the social responsibility. So, the
bank should render its services in rural area to promote and mobilize small investors.
