National Board of Revenue (NBR) Chairman Md Mosharraf Hossain Bhuiyan today unveiled olive-colored service uniform for Customs and VAT Officials formally at a ceremony in IDEB of the capital.

A total of 113 officials of Customs and VAT led by Director General of Customs Intelligence and Investigation Directorate Dr. Md Shahidul Islam participated in parade wearing the new uniform at the ceremony.

NBR has taken this move of introducing uniform as the Customs and VAT officials had gone through under attacks and harassment in various times in the confusion of identities.

NBR Chairman said uniform has been made compulsory for everyone of Customs and VAT. All the officials of Customs and VAT must wear this uniform from March 1.

On September 3, NBR issued a gazette notification to this end.

Bangladesh Customs and VAT Clothing Rules-2019 states that the soldier, sub-inspectors, assistant revenue officers, revenue officers, assistant commissioners, deputy commissioners, joint commissioners, additional commissioners, commissioners, and other officials have to wear the uniform.
