Nisar becomes new Member Customs

SYED MOHAMMAD TAHIR

LAHORE – With the change of government, not only faces of economic managers of the country changed but officers in grade 18 and above have also been reshuffled. After taking over the new Chairman FBR has started restructuring of FBR in a big way following the shake-up, Nisar Muhammad, a BS-21 Officer, has been appointed as Member Customs.

It would not be out of place to mention here that Nisar Muhammad, a senior officer of Pakistan Customs Service has previously served in various key positions across the country. His last posting was Member Strategic Planning Reforms & Statistics. He has got his MBA from Quaid-i-Azam University, Islamabad and M.Sc. in Defence & Strategic Studies from National Defence University, Islamabad. He has vast experience in his field as he had attended many seminars/workshops abroad relating to tax administration and reforms.

It is to be noted that Pakistan Customs is the guardian of Pakistan borders against movement of contraband goods and is facilitator of bona fide trade. It provides a major source of revenue to the government of Pakistan in the form of taxes levied on the goods traded across the borders. It also helps to protect the domestic industry, discourage consumption of luxury goods and stimulate development.

On the other hand, newly-appointed Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Chairman Tariq Bajwa has finally formed his team including Nisar Ahmed Khan as Member Customs and Muhammad Asharf Khan as Member Inland Revenue Operations for achieving the gigantic task of collecting Rs 2,491 billion revenue, the target set for fiscal year 2013-14 is about 26 percent higher than the collection of last fiscal year.

The FBR recently issued two office orders notifying the postings and transfers of grade 20 and grade 21 officers of IRS and Pakistan Customs Services.

FBR officials said that it was right time to announce the postings/transfers for formulating revenue collection policy for the entire year. They also said that the team chosen by the FBR chairman included best officers in both the groups, who are able to achieve the revenue target in difficult economic situation.

It is though depressing but a hard fact that cash-starved Pakistan has no option but to take steps to increase revenue collection for reducing its fiscal deficit. The fiscal deficit has widened to about nine percent of the GDP in the last fiscal year.
