Once the vehicle scanner is connected, the goods loaded on the vehicles coming through the customs point do not have to be checked 'manually'. He instructed the employees to increase revenue collection by maintaining honesty in classification and evaluation of goods. Finance Secretary Madhu Kumar Marasini urged the customs administration to work on the concept of reform, facilitation and good governance.
