In a major shake up, FBR transfers more than 2,500 officials

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has decided to transfer more than 2,500 of its officials between grade 14 and grade 22, in an attempt to break their nexus with businesses and improve efficiency. In order to achieve its target of collecting a massive Rs5.550 trillion in fiscal year 2019-20, people with tainted reputation are also being sidelined.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has also called a meeting of grade-21 and -22 officers of the FBR next week, which will be followed by transfer orders at the members’ level.
