      Hi Vishal Shrestha Ji, the ASBA fee listed for Prime Commercial Bank here was according to the old data. Recently, we revised the data and updated the charges of the Bank of Kathmandu and Prabhu Bank Limited. We are sorry for our failure to deliver the correct information.
      We have to collect these data from the respective websites of Banks. But Prime Commercial Bank has not published the revised commissions and fees data yet in the visible menus and searchable pages.
      However, we have updated the data according to the information provided by the Prime Bank account holder. Thank you for understanding.
