Patna: Continuing its march towards the promised e-governance in the state, Bihar took yet another small, though important, step towards that goal when Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi, on Thursday, launched the online version of the Form-C of the Commercial Tax Department.

The form is required by businessmen importing products from outside Bihar.

At a function held at the Secretariat conference hall, Modi said with the launching of this form on the Internet, traders and businessmen would not have to make multiple trips to the Commercial Tax office in order to obtain the form.

"Not only the move would help the businessmen, it would also help cut down the red tape and reduce corruption within the government," Modi said adding the computerization of the Commercial Tax Department has helped increase state revenue in 2012 by over 25% as opposed to the last year's collection.

The honor for highest collection goes to Gaya where the revenue has gone up this year by a whopping 60%, followed by Muzaffarpur (40%), Purnia (36%), and Patna (31%), the Deputy Chief Minister said.
