Muhith said the report is likely to be completed in November this year and it will give necessary suggestions to reduce the number of loan defaulters.
He underscored the need for increasing revenue collection, saying the country's revenue-GDP ratio is one of the lowest in the world as the taxpayers do not pay taxes properly.
