KARACHI: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) is likely to announce the appointments of officers on the seats of Member Customs (Operation), Member Inland Revenue (Operation) and Member Admin (FBR) by Friday evening.
A meeting chaired by Advisor on Finance Abdul Hafeez Shaikh with Chairperson FBR Nausheen Amjad and Secretary Revenue Division Nadeem Kamran is underway to decide the appointments on these sensitive posts.
Prime Minister Imran Khan, on Thursday, had advised Abdul Hafeez Shaikh to finalize appointments of Member Customs (Operation), Member Inland Revenue (Operation) and Member Admin (FBR) by Friday evening.
Sources said there was a difference of opinion between Nausheen Amjad and Nadeem Kamran, due to which these appointments were delayed. It may be mentioned here that Chairperson FBR used to have charge of Secretary Revenue Division as well, but so far this charge is not given to Nausheen Amjad.
Tariq Huda and Abdul Rasheed Shaikh are the two candidates for the office of Member Customs (Operation).
Chairperson FBR Nausheen Amjad is also authorized to make postings and transfers to fill BS-20 and BS-21 positions with the consult of Members, and this would be done by April 25, 2020.
