Revenue collection target to go unmet

Kakarvitta (Jhapa), 22 June – Mechi Customs Office, Kakarvitta has said that it was going to miss the target of revenue collection set for the current fiscal year.

The office in the first 11 months of the current fiscal (2072-73 BS) collected the revenue of Rs 6.04 billion which is 85.99 per cent of the target.

The office said that unofficial economic border blockade in the south was the main reason behind the fall in revenue collection. It may be noted last fiscal year the office’s revenue collection was 102.84 per cent more than the target.
