Besides, he said that the overall revenue collection has increased due to the realization of outstanding duty payments and resolving of cases.

Customs officials said in the last fiscal year, revenues were collected from duties on fabrics, perishable items, truck chassis, motor parts and industrial raw materials.

The highest amount of revenue was collected from Power Grid Company BD, SMCL Niloy, and SM Corporation.
