The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has collected over K900 million in non-tax revenue in the last ten months, representing an increase of 16 percent in collection.

Acting RTSA chief executive officer Gladwell Banda has disclosed that the Agency collected a total revenue of K985,962,398 from January to October 2019 against K853,097,619 collected during the same period of 2018.

According to a statement issued by RTSA public relations manager Fredrick Mubanga, Sunday, the growth in non-tax revenue collection by the RTSA is attributed to the revenue reforms that government has put in place.

“RTSA is committed to being the lead agency in the collection of non-tax revenues on behalf of Government in a bid to contribute to Zambia’s social and economic growth,”said Banda.

Meanwhile, Banda stated that the Agency was transforming towards delivering a safer, inclusive and economically enabling road transport system.

He also revealed that the RTSA had put in place various strategies to enhance and strengthen its road transport, safety and service delivery mandate to reach out to all road users.

Banda said RTSA would be opening additional Service Centres in selected districts to enhance service delivery.
