KATHMANDU, Nov 24: Finance Minister Bishnu Prasad Poudel has directed the employees of the ministry and its subordinate bodies to work hard to meet the revenue collection target mentioned in the budget.
At a virtual program organized in presence of secretaries of the finance ministry, directors general of the Department of Inland Revenue and Department of Customs and chiefs of Customs and Inland Revenue Offices on Monday, Finance Minister Poudel shared that no compromise would be made to meet the target of revenue collection by addressing the challenges created due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Clarifying that employees would not be deputed on work amidst an environment of fear, he said result-oriented activities would be carried out by creating a favorable environment appreciating their qualification and capacity. "The ministry will help facilitate and encourage us to resolve difficulties and problems. We will honor you if the target is met. Otherwise, you have to be penalized," added Minister Poudel.
