Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday commended the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) for posting an unprecedented 41 percent growth in revenue collection by March 2021.
“I commend the efforts of FBR, I even have achieved a historic growth of 41 percent in March 2021 with recorded shares of Rs460 billion,” the prime minister said during a tweet.
FBR collected about Rs322 billion in the same month last year. FBR also posted a 10 percent growth rate of Rs3,380 billion over the first nine months (July-March) in the current financial year. FBR collected Rs3,060 billion within the corresponding months of the previous fiscal year. “This reflects the broader environmental reforms that are driven by government policies,” the prime minister added.
