All taxes suspended on Mobile Balance Cards, 100 PKR will credit 100 PKR to your account

Straight forward words, it implies that a 100 PKR card will credit 100 PKR to your SIM  account.

Prior in May, we told our perusers that Chief Justice of Pakistan, Saqib Nisar, has taken a Sou Motu see on luxurious duties on portable cards. To place things in context, a 100 PKR card would stack right around 70 PKR to a client's record and the rest would be deducted as Withholding Tax and GST. 

Presently, in the most recent knowledge about this case, the Chief Justice of Pakistan has requested portable telco organizations to suspend all assessments successful from 12am, June thirteenth, 2018, as revealed by ProPakistani.com. The duty suspension will be held for 15 days and the fate of this assessment reasoning or an exception will be settled based on up and coming hearing.

Prior to this order, consumers were paying almost 42% tax on balance cards which included 19.5 percent Federal Excise Duty (FED), 12.5 percent With Holding Tax (WHT) and 10 percent service/ maintenance charges.

Although we have seen the emergence of social applications like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger for calling, a major portion of Pakistani population still relies on traditional calls to connect with each other. SMS and Calls are very expensive, data is bound to get cheaper as more and more people migrate to 3G/4G enabled smartphones.
