ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue has withdrawn special allowance/double pay package of a large number of officials who failed to file their assets declaration till the deadline expired on February 25, 2014
The board had set the extended-deadline for filing of assets declaration but the officials failed to comply with.

The FBR through its letter C No 4(1)ERM/2013 has also issued warning to all officers, DG(s), Chief Commissioners-IR, Chief Collectors and Collector for filing of assets declaration till February 25, 2014. However, no action could be initiated against defaulting officials so far.
The FBR warning letter states, “A number of officers have requested for extension in deadline for filing of declaration of assets. Therefore, the competent authority has extended the date for filing of declaration of assets till February 25, 2014. It is also intimated that the performance allowance of officers who fail to submit their declaration of assets up to June 30, 2013 and earlier years will be discontinued/de-notified after the said deadline and action will also be taken as per para 12 of Government Servants (Conduct Rules, 1964), read with Sl.
