ISLAMABAD - The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) on Friday transferred and posted 56 officers of Inland Revenue Service (IRS) and Pakistan Customs Services (PCS) groups - the fifth major reshuffle in tax machinery in last couple of months since the appointment of board new chairman Tariq Bajwa.

The FBR, which is struggling hard to achieve its monthly revenue collection targets, has been frequently changing its administration in a bid to bring honest and hardworking officers at top. FBR has to achieve gigantic revenue collection target of Rs 2475 billion. Tariq Bajwa has been tasked to build a team for pursuing revenue collection target of Rs2,475 billion for the current fiscal year 2013-14.

FBR has provisionally colleted Rs 280 billion in July-August period against the target of Rs 295 billion.
