After seven months of AFCAC’s effective and efficient advocacy campaign; the MOCIT took the overall ownership of 10 percent telecommunication service tax deducting system, ATRA and MOF will work closely with MOCIT to collect 10% tax in a transparent manner. In addition, the government effort has sped up for making Real-Time Data Management System (RTDMS) for collecting 10% telecommunication tax. The Minister of MoCIT Mr. Shehzad Gul Aryoobi has promised with AFCAC in the meeting and also in the AFCAC National Anti-Corruption Conference in front of media that the new system (RTDMS) will be in place within 3-4 months. He also said that introduction of RDMS is his priority and it will not just cut off the corruption hands in the process additionally it will help us to generate more revenue from the telecommunication sector. The development of the mentioned system is in the procurement stage, National Procurement Authority (NPA) has received a Proposal from 4 companies and soon they will sign a contract with one of them. Most of the parliament members are also agreed with the RDMS because it can help the government to allocate a budget for development. It is worth mentioning that public awareness has been increased, most people know about the current 10% telecommunication tax deducting system.
