The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) said the information came from the Real-Time Data Management System which monitors the collection of taxes for telecom services.
“We managed to collect more than 2.2 billion AFN since the beginning of 2020 and handed it over to the government treasury,” said Abdul Samad Hamid Poya, a spokesperson for the MCIT.
Poya blamed telecom companies for not being transparent on the exact number of active SIM cards and affecting the data collection.
The Real-Time Data Management System was established last year by the MCIT to ensure transparency in the collection of tax across the country.
