LAHORE - Prime Minister Amnesty Scheme would have multiple benefits as on the one hand it would help regularize a major portion of parallel economy while on the other three million new jobs will be created.

This was stated by the President Lahore Tax Bar Association Qari Habibur Rehman while speaking at LTBA meeting. Member FBR Inland Revenue Shahid Hussain Asad and Secretary General Ali Ahsan Rana also spoke on the occasion. The LTBA President said that it was very unfortunate that we were used to criticize every government move without any proper reason that was unjustified and uncalled for. He said that the Prime Minister Amnesty Scheme was a part of government efforts to facilitate the business doing people.

 He said that with this single step the image of the country would get a new boost as the graph of unemployment would automatically come down.

He said that Lahore Tax Bar understands that Tax-GDP ratio could improve considerably provided the tax payers and tax collection authorities strengthen their liaison. The FBR would have to restore its confidence to bring into the tax net more people.
