Kathmandu, September 12
Finance Minister Janardan Sharma has instructed the bodies concerned to install vehicle scanners at the main customs points at the earliest.
The minister issued this directive while addressing a two-day seminar on customs management organised by the Department of Customs here today.
He wanted the process of installing the vehicle scanner to be started promptly. The goods loaded by vehicles coming in and going out at the customs points need not be manually checked with the installation of the vehicle scanner system.
On the occasion, the finance minister also urged the customs employees to increase the revenue collection by maintaining honesty in the classification and evaluation of the goods.
Finance Secretary Madhu Kumar Marasini urged the customs administration to work as per the principle of improvement, facilitation and good governance. He directed the customs staff to immediately stop the practice of making any party, leader or trade union or organisation, make phone calls to exert pressure seeking transfer.
Revenue Secretary Krishna Hari Pushkar directed the employees to carry out works in such a way that the service seeker has no room for complaint.
