According to provisional data, revenue collection during month of January 2018 was also increased by 19 per cent from Rs 228 billion in January 2017 to Rs 272 billion.
The increase is despite issuing Rs 3 billion more tax refunds in January, 2018 as compared to refunds issued during the corresponding period of previous fiscal year. Moreover, figures of collection received in the treasuries of the remote areas may further swell the revenue figures.
The target for the year has been fixed with an annual increase of around 19% over the previous year.
