Shamroz Khan Masjedi, spokesperson of the Ministry of Finance said the loss in customs revenues was driven by the decrease in trade from neighbouring nations.
Traders have raised concern about corruption and control of powerful men who embezzle the revenues at Herat Customs office.
They say the revenue at Herat should have been higher since traders were exporting more to Iran once Pakistan had closed the border crossings in March.
However, Masjedi said a digital x-ray machine and cameras have been installed at the border points to check such practices.
