The Nepal Weekly
November 16, 2021

Finance Minister Janardan Sharma has said that bureaucracy was expected to have a well understanding of the socialism-oriented economy. While inaugurating the officer–level service training (revenue administration) here today, the Finance Minister said that civil servants/ employees must know about the nature of revenue policies advocating and promoting a socialism-oriented economy.    

“Nepal’s Constitution has mentioned about the socialism-oriented economy,” pointed out Sharma, adding that he expected all the people concerned to know about socialism, socialism-oriented economy and the course for achieving this. He hoped that the session would incorporate these issues.    

Employees have a greater role in the implementation of the Constitution, an achievement of collective efforts, according to him who took time to insist on the need of adopting a ‘progressive tax system’.     According to the Finance Minister, the tax policy would see massive changes from the upcoming budget. “There should not be any instance in which we have to press for tax payment. Please arrange for a convenient system in which the tax-payers themselves come forward for paying tax,” he pointed out. He urged one and all to make efforts from their respective quarters in a committed manner for translating the achievements from various movements into practice.
