Enterprise - - National News -

Fed­eral Min­is­ter for Fi­nance Sen­a­tor Ishaq Dar chaired a meet­ing at the Fi­nance Divi­sion Mon­day morn­ing with a del­e­ga­tion of Over­seas Pak­ista­nis Com­mis­sion Pun­jab led by Com­mis­sioner Afzaal Bhatti. The Com­mis­sioner dis­cussed with the Min­is­ter the is­sues be­ing faced by over­seas Pak­ista­nis. He re­quested the Min­is­ter to nom­i­nate a fo­cal per­son at FBR to help and as­sist over­seas Pak­ista­nis and their fam­i­lies for an­swer­ing their queries re­lated to tax mat­ters.

The Min­is­ter agreed with the pro­posal and as­sured that the fo­cal per­son would be nom­i­nated in FBR with­out de­lay. Bhatti also dis­cussed with the Min­is­ter the is­sue of re­cently im­posed tax on air tick­ets be­ing charged from ex­pat Pak­ista­nis depart­ing for abroad. The rep­re­sen­ta­tive of Fi­nance Min­istry clar­i­fied that the tax was a pro­vin­cial tax and had not been im­posed by the Fed­eral gov­ern­ment.

The Min­is­ter also de­sired that if the Com­mis­sion or the Over­seas Pak­ista­nis want to sub­mit any pro­posal for the ben­e­fit of the over­seas Pak­ista­nis they may sub­mit it at the ear­li­est so that it could be con­sid­ered for the next bud­get. The meet­ing was at­tended by the se­nior of­fi­cials of Fi­nance Divi­sion as well as Over­seas Pak­ista­nis Com­mis­sion Pun­jab.
