  2. Fuzail says:

    This is not right. The govt should stick to its plans. It is being very lenient we with taxes and discipline of paying taxes in time. Especially shameful for the time being saved in the process by the govt taxmen by doing so. It is this very leniency that causes fall in economic growth. A deterrent in the phase of a well planned growth story for the nation.
