Banks in Galkot range from the branches of A-class banks to small scale home-based cooperatives.
Different banks and financial organisations are providing a range of banking and financial services to the people of Galkot, Baglung.
Nepal Bank Limited in Harichaur was the first bank to start its operation in Galkot. However, during the Maoist insurgency period, Nepal Bank stopped its operation because of the rising level of insecurity and attacks and got completely abandoned for several years until it was reopened recently.
Currently, various A class banks, B class banks and other financial organisations like cooperative agencies are actively providing their services. In the last five years, competition in the local market has grown as a number of private banks entered the Galkot’s market to meet the rapid financing need of the people.
Generally, major big banks’ branches are centred in Hatiya, while other small and medium scale financial organisations have spread their wing all over the Galkot.
Below, is an updated list of banks and finances operating in Galkot, Baglung.
