In a rare move, 23 Chief Commissioners of FBR threaten government with revolt cum strike

ISLAMABAD: In a rare move, 23 Chief Commissioners of FBR threaten government with revolt cum strike.

In a rare move, almost 23 chief commissioners of Inland Revenue in a meeting with Chairman Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Shabbar Zaidi demanded that the government withdraw the proposed reform measures for the tax authority within two days. But they were not clear on their course of action after two days should the government fail to comply with their ultimatum, Dawn News has reported.

It was the second meeting of the top tax officers within the past couple of days in which they expressed their reservations over the proposed move.

Soon after the meeting taking to Twitter, the FBR chairman thanked all the chief commissioners of Inland Revenue of IRS for what he called a “very productive meeting.”

“Restructuring /transformation of FBR will be undertaken after taking into account feedback of all the stakeholders” he went on to promise in the tweet.

“Whole organisation including all levels of staff, will be taken into consideration.”
