Kunduz revenue up by 22m afghanis

Kunduz revenue up by 22m afghanis

Oct 17, 2012 - 15:21

KUNDUZ CITY (PANinfo-icon): The revenue of northern Kunduz province rose by 22 million afghanis ($416,115) during the first half of the current year, compared to the corresponding period of 2011, an official said on Wednesday.

The provincial income increased to 137 million afghanis during the first half of 2012 from 115 million afghanis in the first six months of last year, Director of Revenue Syed Alim Sadat told Pajhwok Afghan News.

Sadat said last year’s total revenues stood at more than 285 million afghanis. Most of the money came from taxes on salaries of government and NGO servants, Sher Khan Port and the real estate business.

Sadat linked the revenue increase to workers’ enhanced capacity, awareness among taxpayers about the relevant law and cooperation from security organs. Courts, attorneys, agricultureinfo-icon and police headquarters directly helped them in collecting taxes, he said.  

One of the shopkeepers, Ghulam Sarwar, said most people who evaded taxes in the past had realised that their money was being spent on renovating the city and providing amenities to residents.
