Kathmandu, April 25
The government of Nepal has begun a campaign to digitise all financial transactions at government offices.
Finance Minister Yubaraj Khatiwada inaugurated the digitisation campaign amidst a function organised at the Ministry today. The system is now available at the Taxpayers’ Office in Thamel in the first phase.
Speaking on the occasion, Khatiwada made it clear that carrying out transactions through electronic systems would make the transactions easy. He said it would make the government taxpayer-friendly.
He assured that the revenue system would also migrate to the electronic world soon. After that, taxpayers can pay taxes online directly from their bank accounts using mobile phones.
He also directed his staff to properly manage the system.
The Minister said the government would formulate and implement all necessary laws and regulations for electronic transactions very soon.
Revenue Secretary Shishir Kumar Dhungana says the system will be expanded throughout the country within next fiscal year (by 2019 mid-July).
