In addition to the initiative to block SIM cards, the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) is actively developing a strategy to disconnect electricity for non-filers. However, concerns have arisen regarding the feasibility of this plan, given incomplete data on the electricity connections of non-filers and the potential legal challenges associated with such actions.

It is noteworthy that the FBR has attained a historic milestone by collecting Rs. 1,021 billion in a single month, specifically in December 2023. The official statement from the FBR emphasizes that this achievement surpassed both monthly and six-month financial year targets. This remarkable accomplishment underscores the FBR’s successful efforts in revenue collection, marking a significant stride toward meeting its financial goals.
