Power Division shares data of 25 million consumers with Nadra

ISLAMABAD: The Power Division has reportedly shared the data of 25 million electricity consumers with National Database & Registration Authority (Nadra) aimed at identifying individuals with taxable income who are still outside the tax net, well-informed sources told Business Recorder.

The Minister for Finance, Revenue and Economic Affairs, Dr Miftah Ismail had sent a letter to Minister for Power Division, Awais Ahmad Khan Leghari, a couple of months ago and sought his help in this regard.

Ismail maintained that while the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) is already making efforts to expand the database of individuals with taxable income, a number of new measures are also being considered.
