Rs 37 billion worth of refunds were also issued in this month. During September 2023, only Rs 254 billion could be collected under the head of import taxes due to a sharp drop in imports.

The FBR compensated the Rs 45 billion shortfall in import taxes through domestic taxes, especially direct ones. – INP
