    first thing that Nepal should seriously do is remove the fixed ratio of 100 IC to 160 NC… why should NC to US Dollar, Euro, Pound etc be decided by its linkage with IC.
    Rashtra bank should annul this arrangement and govt of Nepal should scrap all treaties without even waiting for a response from India.
    also, VISA system should be in place. Why allow Indians to just hop on a fight to Kathmandu or cross the border just like that…
    Nepal is strong enough to stand on it own feet.
