Arghandiwal Vows Reshuffle in Finance Ministry
Arghandiwal said systematic reforms will be implemented in the Ministry of Finance to ensure that all incomes are transferred to the state treasury.
Acting Minsiter of Finance Abdul Hadi Arghandiwal on Saturday said all posts that were previously occupied by individuals who were appointed based on relations will be re-announced soon.
He said that systematic reforms will be implemented in the Ministry of Finance to ensure that all incomes are transferred to the state treasury. Arghandiwal said that the move will also ensure funding of ordinary budget from national revenue.
“If we come up with proper management, we will not have any problem in terms of completing our ordinary budget because we have the ability to fund the ordinary budget from our domestic resources,” said Arghandiwal, who addressed a ceremony on the start of registration of undocumented vehicles.
According to Ministry of Finance, over the past ten years, 46,000 vehicles were imported in the country legally and the rest came through illegal ways.
“They should consult us and fill the forms and submit them to the customs. The second stage of this process is the inclusion of data of these vehicles to the customs,” said Mohammad Khalil Salehzada, the head of Customs Department of Ministry of Finance.
The purpose of this process is to increase national revenues, ensure security and public order, and prevent traffic disruptions.
"Today it is a good step that in order to prevent illegal activities, we have started the process of registering vehicles that are not registered in customs and has no traffic documents," Argandiwal said.
The registration of undocumented vehicles will start from today and the process will continue until 17 November.
“If there is transparency, the private sector will not be compelled to pay bribes or process their business through illegal ways,” said Sherbaz Kaminzada, member of Afghanistan Chambers Federation.
