According to ARY News, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) declared on Sunday that a significant increase in traders has registered under the Tajir Dost Scheme. FBR reports that since April 1, 18,381 dealers have registered as filers in total.

Utilization Of Tajir Dost App

An FBR analysis states that 3,899 traders became filers through other means, while 14,472 filers were formed using the Tajir Dost app.  FBR’s city-specific data shows that between April 1 and May 25, 5,112 traders in Lahore and 5,303 businessmen in Karachi registered as filers.

Cracking Down on Non-Filers

During the same period, Quetta registered 980 traders, Peshawar added 1,534 businessmen to the list of filers, Islamabad registered 1,567 new filers, and Rawalpindi registered 2,138 traders. The FBR has so far disabled more than 3,600 SIM cards belonging to non-filers in Pakistan earlier this week.

Sources revealed by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) 

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) receives data from FBR on 50,000 non-filers each day, sources revealed.  According to sources, the PTA has received a list of 566,671 people, and the bureau has planned to progressively disable the SIM cards of non-filers as telecom providers have exchanged information of non-filers.

According to reports, SIMs belonging to non-filers would be disabled in small groupings in accordance with Income Tax General Rules 114B.

Joint Working Group

Furthermore, according to reports, the joint working group has voiced concerns about the blocking of non-filers’ mobile SIM cards.  The news was released the day after the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) and telecom companies reached an agreement to block 5,000 SIM cards each day belonging to non-filers.

Implications and Significance

The government’s initiatives to broaden the tax base and enhance tax compliance in the nation include the Tajir Dost Scheme and the FBR’s campaign against non-filers. The FBR seeks to improve revenue collection and establish a more equal tax system by enticing traders to register as filers and pursuing non-compliant persons. All things considered, these programs demonstrate the government’s dedication to fortifying the nation’s fiscal system and promoting more equitable and sustainable economic growth.

Conclusion

To sum up, the Tajir Dost Scheme and the FBR’s campaign against non-filers constitute a complete strategy to broaden Pakistan’s tax base and encourage voluntary tax compliance, ultimately bolstering the nation’s fiscal framework and fostering sustainable econo
