Hyderabad: Patting his department on its back for achieving remarkable revenue collection, Commercial Taxes Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav on Monday disclosed that Telangana State stood second in collecting commercial taxes in India after Bihar by achieving 17.85 per cent growth.
Addressing a press conference at the Secretariat here, the Minister appreciated the department for better performance of collecting Rs 32,492 crore out of a target of Rs 33,965 crore for 2015-16 fiscal. He attributed the improvement in tax collection to the reforms taken by the government, use of latest technology and strengthening the informer system in the department.
The officials of the department had done well and the government would implement welfare schemes on priority basis, he maintained. He expressed hope that the State would surpass Bihar in collecting taxes. Felicitating 19 officials on the occasion, he said that the department had filled up 110 posts out of 419 vacancies.
The government had asked the Telangana State Public Service Commission to recruit the rest of the posts, he said, adding that a new building would be built for the department. The Commercial Taxes Minister also said that 14 modern check posts would be set up to strengthen the department and its functioning. He also said that steps were being taken to ensure that cinema tickets were sold online.
The government had also taken a decision to provide permanent buildings for department offices in all districts in State. “Right now, some of them are working from rental buildings,” he said.
