This is a reflection of the government’s goals for long-term economic growth and revitalization.”

We collected Rs.3380 billion between July 20 and March 21, which is 10% more than during the same period last year,” said a spokesperson. This demonstrates a broad-based economic rebound spurred on by government measures, he continued.
