This amount is a signifant decline from what the Maldives Inland Revenue Authority (MIRA) collected as bank taxes within the January-May period last year.

MIRA had generated 317 million at the end of May last year, as bank taxes. While amounts generated through banks had dropped, the total amount it garnered is higher than in comparison to 2017.
