Currently, the Office is in the process of procuring a satellite road network database for the system as regional states submit their road layouts to the Institute. It amassed revenues of 733.5 million Br over the first three months of the current fiscal year. The revenues were collected from tariffs imposed on petroleum, driving licenses and annual renewal fees, and tolls from cross-country buses.
