Taking financial indicators of 8 commercial banks for the period of 1996/97 to 2006/07, this study attempts to elucidate the dividend practices of commercial banks of Nepal. Abound by controversies and unpredictability, this study concludes that commercial banks of Nepal do not show uniform trend of dividend policy. Dividend policy practiced by commercial banks of Nepal is neither fully explained by residual theory nor stable theory. With the development of financial institutions in Nepal, they need to follow a robust method of dividend policy so that investors can predict stock market and make a rationale investment decision.</p> <p><em>Administrative and Management Review Vol. 24, No. 2, August 2012, Page 24-44</em></p> 2012-12-17T13:47:56+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Association between Work Motivation and Job Satisfaction of College Teachers 2012-12-17T14:23:55+00:00 Sarita Maharjan <p>Colleges should motivate the teachers for their job satisfaction in order to enhance the performance of the organizations.
