“Since the Islamic Emirate in Afghanistan took over the government, 1.55 billion Afghanis have been collected in revenue from the 10 percent tax on SIM cards,” said Enayatullah Alkozai, the Ministry spokesman.
Meanwhile, mobile users called on the IEA to ensure transparency in the collection process of the 10 percent revenue tax.
“We call on the Islamic Emirate to collect this revenue in a transparent process and spend it in an accurate way and that is in our national interest,” said Abdulhaq, a resident of Kabul.
