LAHORE : Commissioner (Appeal) Punjab Revenue Authority (PRA) Shehzad Mehmood Gondal and Deputy Commissioner Gujranwala PRA Zaka Ullah relinquished the charge of their offices on Thursday to join their parent department, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) Headquarters Islamabad.

Both the officers, who joined the PRA, the Government of Punjab, in December 2012 on five-year deputation, are likely to join further postings in the FBR in days to come. Two notifications in this regard were issued by the PRA, Finance Department Punjab on Wednesday last.

Gondal, who is a BS-19 Inland Revenue Service (IRS) officer and Additional Commissioner by designation, is considered among the pioneers of establishing the PRA in the light of the 18th Constitutional Amendment and transfer of Sales Tax on Services (STS) to the provinces.
