29 benami properties unearthed in Peshawar

The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has unearthed as many as 29 undeclared (benami) properties in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), a private media outlet reported on Thursday.

As per details, the properties, identified in Peshawar’s areas of Hayatabad and University Town, were registered against different computerised national identity cards (CNICs).

No one has claimed the ownership of the undeclared properties as yet, prompting the FBR to send data of the undeclared properties to Benami Zone in Islamabad.

Meanwhile, the FBR has constituted more teams for Dera Ismail Khan (DIK) and other areas of the province to identify undeclared properties.

Back in July, the FBR had formally seized (benami) property of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Senator Chaudhry Tanvir.

The property was registered in the name of his servants. Tanvir’s benami property had been estimated to spread over 6,000 canals.
