Bureaucrats and Military Personnel Get Major Tax Relief 

The federal government’s new budget for 2024-25 has offered major relief to bureaucrats and military personnel, despite new taxes for ordinary citizens. 

Both serving and retired bureaucrats and military officials will be exempt from income tax on property sales. In contrast, taxes on property sales and transfers for the general public have increased significantly.

The National Assembly approved the budget, which totals Rs18.877 trillion. The government plans to raise an additional Rs1.7 trillion in revenue next year by imposing higher taxes on various incomes, assets, and goods.

For flights to China, Malaysia, and Indonesia, the duty is also Rs210,000. Tickets to Saudi Arabia, UAE, the Middle East, and African countries now incur a duty of Rs105,000, up by Rs30,000.
