After recitation from the Holy Quran, the group was welcomed to FBR House by Riffat Shaheen Qazi, Member Facilitation and Taxpayers' Education (FATE). She expressed her hope that the visit would provide the MCMC participants with an opportunity to get answers to their questions about FBR and the country's revenue collection system. She said that the participants' queries would give FBR an insight into the current thinking of mid-career civil servants from diverse backgrounds and thus would provide valuable feedback and input.
After introductions, Chief FATE Bakhtiar Muhammad gave a detailed presentation about the history, working, issues and future plans of FBR. He briefed the group in detail about various initiatives launched by FBR to enhance revenue collection and to expand the tax base.
The presentation was followed by an exhaustive questions and answers session during which the participants' questions were answered in a frank and direct manner by the acting Chairman FBR Shahid Rahim Sheikh and the relevant Members of FBR. At the end of the Q&A session, the Director General NIM Tauqeer Ahmad thanked the management of FBR for arranging the visit. He also thanked them for providing with an opportunity to interact with FBR's top management and understand the grassroots issues facing the country's economy and the revenue collection system.-PR
