CJP Justice Saqib Nisar comes up with an innovative idea for Diamer Bhasha Dam fund
LONDON - Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Mian Saqib Nisar come up with an imitative idea for Diamer Bhasha Dam Fund.
CJP has put forth the recommendation of re-imposition of taxes on pre-paid mobile top-ups for the purpose of collection of funds for Diamer-Bhasha and Mohmand Dams’ construction.
Speaking at a dam fundraiser hosted by UK Pakistan Chamber of Commerce and Industry in London, the CJP said, “It will not be appropriate to impose taxes to collect funds for the construction of dams.
However, we had earlier suspended the withholding tax on the top-up of prepaid cards by cellphone service providers and learnt that through this Rs3 billion were saved per month.”
