The campaign will be run in collaboration with the Federal Board of Revenue and NADRA and these institutions will identify taxpayers at village and street level. In a statement, Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Youth Affairs Usman Dar said this drive is aimed at respecting the leading taxpayers. He said it would further improve tax culture in the country.


  1. Bureaucratic mindlesness. Yet another wasteful exercise.

    You want an effective tax campaign? Make sure tax payers and their dependents get free medical, social security in the form of joblessness and post-retirement benefits, free or significantly subsidized quality education for their children, preferential treatment for using government services, etc.

    Rest everything is a hogwash.
