KATHMANDU, Jan 24: Transaction in the customs offices throughout the country has now gone cashless replacing the existing one with 'only' banking system.
According to the Director-General at the Department of the Customs (DoC) Suman Dahal, the cash-voucher system has been replaced by banking transactions.
Speaking at the press meet on the occasion of Customs Day on Friday, DG Dahal said that the transaction soon will be accessible even through digital gateway. "We have been holding a series of discussions with Nepal Rastra Bank, Ministry of Finance and DoC in this connection," he added.
Adding further, he said that the issue of poor coordination among different offices will be resolved soon as Nepal National Single Window System is being developed. According to him, more than two offices will deliver their services under a single roof under the first phase of the single window system.
