ISLAMABAD: Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has strongly rebuffed the reports about rifts in government economy team and due to this the chairman of the revenue authority is on leave.
The FBR in a statement on Monday said that FBR chairman Shabbar Zaidi is on a two weeks leave which is going to end this Friday.
He is likely to resume office on Monday and his first day business will include Prime Ministers interaction with all Pakistan traders.
The leave of Chairman FBR was necessisated by his annual medical check up in Karachi and some family commitments.
The Chairman as a part of economic team of the prime minister enjoys full confidence of the Prime Minister and his Advisor on Finance.
“Any rumours of any sort of rift in the economic team are utterly incorrect,” the FBR said.
