Senior Judge Mr. Gulzar Ahmed’s remarks regarding detonating tax collection failure should be taken seriously by Govt to save the economy from nose-diving. Hashmat Habib President Tehreek-e-Tahafuz-e-Adlia said while appreciating Supreme Court Judge’s remarks which have unearthed the disaster being caused due to failure of FBR.

He said to boost up the economy is not a rocket science. About 80% tax collection is indirect and just for 20% collection a brigade of 20,000 FBR employees itself is an admission of failure of tax collections.

Hashmat Habib said FBR should be banned and trust may be imposed upon the people to self assessed tax or trade-wise fixed tax. However, the assessment shouldn’t be less than the previous one. He said refund of all kinds be finished forthwith. These simple steps will increase tax collection on one hand and erase corrupt practices on the other. Under these circumstances it is the primary function of Govt to honor the observation of Supreme Court judge which is beneficial to the nation.
