West Bandung Regency-Regional Secretary (Sekda) of West Java Province Iwa Karniwa said that the prevention of illegal levies (pungli) continues to be intensively conducted within the West Java Provincial Government.
He asserted about this when opening a work meeting Satgas Saber Pungli West Java Province in Mason Pine Hotel, Kota Baru Parahyangan, West Bandung regency, Wednesday (25/07/2018). It was also based on Presidential Regulation No. 87 of 2016 on the formation about Clean Sweeping Team of Illegal Draws formed by the central, ministries / agencies, to the regions.
"The government's effort to realize the quality of service for the society is not apart from the problem of illegal levies, not just the agency level even RT / RW," said Iwa.
According to him, illegal levies are considered disturbing, unsettling, and burdensome to society, as well as eliminating public confidence in the Government, and certainly hampering the economy.
Thus, with the arrival of West Java Governor Decree Number 700 / kep.1089-inspt / 2016 dated September 4, 2016 on the establishment of Satgas Saber Pungli Jabar, West Java Provincial Government has launched several innovation programs aimed at minimizing illegal levies.
Some of these programs, Iwa said, have also been designated as a 'pilot project' of corruption prevention for 17 provinces in Indonesia by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK). One of these programs is E-Samsat Jabar, which is an easy way to pay tax on the income sector.
"Thus, vehicle tax-related payments can be directly conducted independently, and transparently via E-banking, M-banking, and ATMs, to minimize illegal practices that often occur when transactions are conducted conventionally," he said.
In the employment allowance sector, West Java Provincial Government runs an employee income management (TPP) management system, so there is no reason for 'less income' for ASNs when doing illegal levies.
"Then the Innovation of One Simple Access to Jabar in the licensing sector with the ease given, avoid the practice of pungli and brokering," said Iwa.
The sweep of illegal levies, apart from the apparatus, also requires the active role of the society. "We will also continue to provide socialization, education and prosecution," he said specifically.
