Finance Minister Janardan Sharma has inaugurated the electronic payment system of customs duty organized on the occasion of the 70th International Customs Day. Importers and Exporters can now pay customs tax online. All products brought to the customs point by the trader can now be paid online from anywhere. This will help accelerate customs department work while also saving time and ensuring the security of service recipients.
The Customs Department had previously done a trial run of this service at Birgunj’s Dry Port Customs Office. This approach eliminates the need for customs agents to carry cash, go to the bank to prepare goods for payment checks, and so on. During the event, the minister also informed that a ‘vehicle scanner’ will be used at the customs point soon. According to the customs authority, the service will now be available at 24 more customs offices across the country following the successful testing of the dry port. The expansion of online customs tax payment from the Tribhuvan Airport Customs Office was also inaugurated by Finance Minister Jarnadan Sharma.
