The collected revenue earning is higher by around 28.50C than the fixed target

The customs authorities at Hili Land Port in Hakimpur upazila of Dinajpur have already exceeded the fixed revenue earning target by about 15% during the 2020-2021 financial year that will end in June next.

“We have collected Tk 220.28 crore till February against the fixed target of earning Tk191.79 crore revenue by the National Board of Revenue (NBR) during this FY,” Deputy Commissioner of Customs Saidul Alam said.

The collected revenue earning is higher by around Tk28.50 crore than the fixed target of collecting Tk191.79 crore.

Traders Saiful Islam and Rabiul Islam Sweet said they are enjoying more facilities than before in conducting import of goods from India and unloading those in a hassle-free manner.

Talking to BSS, Hili Land Port Importers’-Exporters’ Association President Harun Ur Rashid said all the goods being imported now through the land port are duty-free.

“As a result the revenue has increased during this FY compared to the previous FY,” said Rashid, also Chairman of local Hakimpur upazila parishad.

Hili Municipal Mayor and Importer Jamil Hossain Cholonto said Bangladeshi businesspersons are importing more goods through the port as it is highly business friendly.

“If the roads connecting the land port with the town and other parts of the country were repaired rapidly, the import-export will increase further through the land port,” he added.
