KARACHI: Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) on has restrained creation of new units/ranges in all Inland Revenue formations.
A circular issued by the FBR stated that a meeting of Inland revenue-Operations and Admin Wings of FBR was held on November 04, 2020 in which various requirements of IR field formations were discussed.
It was observed that field formations had increased the number of units and ranges without taking into consideration the notified sanctioned strength of the field offices.
“Needless to say, with increase of just one extra unit, there raises a requirement of support and technical staff, this leads to an unending shortage of human resource for the organization,” it added.
The FBR directed the tax offices to avoid creating new unit/range unless prior approval of the board is obtained.
The FBR also directed all the chief commissioners to share details of existing units and ranges to enable the tax authorities to notify the sanctioned strength.
