Revenue officials blame it on political instability but businesspersons say it is because of corruption.

Benapole Customs computer division (programmer) official Golam Kibria said, “The National Board of Revenue has set the revenue collection target of Tk 1,133 crore for the 2013-14 financial year.

“But the collection has fallen short by Tk 70.96 crore in this period,” he told bdnews24.com.

Revenue collection was less than the target in the first six months of the financial year due to political instability and relentless shutdowns and blockades, he reasoned.
