Comparing revenue performance for the same period in 2017/2018 fiscal year, collection this year increased by 30 percent.

Meanwhile, total revenue collected in the first four months of the fiscal year 2018/2019 is US$161.9 million, comprising 154.9 million or 95.7% in domestic revenues, and US$7.0 million or 4.3% in external resources.
