The federal government is not going to increase the tax on the salaried class, said Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry on Thursday.

He clarified this while speaking to reporters after the federal cabinet’s meeting.

All the media reports about revising tax rate for salaried class and increase in gas and electricity prices are baseless, the minister said.

The government has not so far passed the income tax ordinance and the finance bill will be tabled in the National Assembly for debate.
