Federal govt rejects KMC taxation proposal

KARACHI: The federal government has refused to allow Sindh to collect the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) tax through K Electric bills, terming the proposed measure a burden on Karachiites.

Two days ago, the Sindh government proposed the collection of two KMC taxes — fire tax and conservancy tax — through monthly electricity bills sent to residents to ensure their recovery.

Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah said the government has spoken to K Electric and National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA). Shah said: “I have spoken to Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin also, and just like we collect television bills, we will collect the two KMC taxes as well.”

The chief minister said that the Sindh government “wants KMC to stand on its own feet.”
