According to reports, the FBR has achieved almost 55% revenue collection through duty/taxes collected at the import stage, so if imports are curbed under the International Monetary Fund programme, then the revenue collection would also be impacted negatively in the remaining period of the current fiscal year.

In the first 29 days of October 2021, the FBR fetched Rs428 billion and exceeded its assigned target with a significant margin of 29%. The FBR had collected Rs331 billion in the same month in the last fiscal year 2020-21.
