During FY 2079-80, out of the 206 registered companies in the OTC market, shares of 84 companies were actively traded, with a total of 2,12,64,095 shares being exchanged between investors. These transactions resulted in a combined market capitalization of Rs. 2.85 Arba.

NEPSE introduced the OTC Market platform, which has been operational since 2064 B.S. According to the guidelines set by the Office of the Company Registrar on Magh 18, 2072, public companies that have not listed on the stock exchange due to various reasons, such as de-listing or failure to meet listing criteria, have the opportunity to conduct share transactions and transfers through the OTC market.

The OTC market provides an alternative platform for investors and companies that are not listed on the main stock exchange to participate in share trading, offering increased accessibility and liquidity for shareholders in this segment of the market.
