The National Board of Revenue has collected Tk 90,901.99 crore in the July-October period of the current fiscal year, against the target of Tk 97,306.86 crore.

In the FY22, the revenue collected in July-October was Tk 79622.66 crore.
Though the revenue collection target saw a shortfall of Tk 6,404.87 crore, the overall revenue collected in the July-October period is encouraging for the revenue board, said a member of the NBR.
