Nepal imported mobile phone sets worth Rs 22.97 billion in the first five months of the current fiscal year, a 10.37 percent increase over the amount imported during the same period the previous fiscal year, according to the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

According to the Department of Customs (DoC), the government spent the aforementioned sum to purchase 3.06 million pieces of mobile phone sets from foreign suppliers between the middle of July and the middle of this year. The importation of cell resulted in customs income of Rs 3.63 billion being collected by the Indian government.

Customers’ desire for cellphones in particular has surged, dealers claim, primarily because of the coronavirus outbreak that occurred in the country in March 2020. The rise in ecommerce, online payments, and online classes offered by academic institutions, together with a decrease in imports through illegal routes, are the primary reasons for the rise in registered imports.
