While crediting the achievement to the hardworking Government employees, especially the enforcement departments, Khandu said “there has been a visible improvement in work culture in last two and half years. The Team Arunachal mantra has ignited minds of the employees to deliver for good to the people of the state. This resulted in multiplying the State revenue from its past collection”.

“For past 33 years since we attained Statehood in 1987, the revenue generation of the state never touched the mark of 1000 Crore. But due to the concerted effort and hardwork of the state government and its dedicated officers the revenue generation shot a record new height of Rs 2100 Cr in 2018 -19” the CM said.
