The government of Nepal is facing a significant challenge in terms of revenue collection. According to recent figures, the total expenditure estimate for the current fiscal year stands at NPR 1,790 billion, of which NPR 1,180 billion is allocated for recurrent expenses and NPR 380 billion for capital expenses. As of Friday, the government’s expenditure was recorded at Rs 613.64 billion, while the total revenue collection was just Rs 507.52 billion. The shortfall of over Rs 100 billion is set to exert pressure on the government to manage the government’s day to day expenditure. This situation highlights the urgent need for the government to diversify its revenue sources in order to sustain economic growth and development. At present, the government's revenue collection is heavily dependent on taxes, which account for the majority of its income. However, this dependence on taxes has led to a narrow revenue base, leaving the government vulnerable to economic downturns and fluctuations in tax revenues.
