Panaji, Feb 11 (IANS) Goa will launch ‘Cyber Treasury’, a state-wide area network that enables entrepreneurs to pay commercial taxes, including value-added tax (VAT), online, state Finance Secretary Udipta Ray said here Wednesday. Chief Minister Digambar Kamat will inaugurate the project at a national conference on e-governance to be held in Goa Feb 12-13, she told reporters.
