Share investors launch hunger strike demanding reforms in capital market

Kathmandu: The share investors’ pressure group today launched a relay hunger strike at the office of Nepal Stock Exchange in Bhadrakali, demanding reforms in the capital market.

Their demands include that non-residents Nepalis and Nepalis living in foreign countries should be brought to the capital market and the margin trading be opened immediately through share brokers.

Likewise, banks and financial institutions should release a share security loan of 25 percent of the total loan investment. The new online system should be accessed by all investors, said the strike coordinator Hari Dhakal.
