FBR’s audit section suffering from staff shortage


The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) is experiencing heavy losses due to staff shortage and unqualified workforce with audit functioning of the board negatively affected, a local media outlet reported on Sunday.

According to reports, misuse of Green Channel and electronic clearance of import products is the primary reason behind the problem.

Among the consequences of poor audit functioning is that import has become a lucrative business, leading to unnecessary imports and increasing trade deficit.
