HRN demands withdrawing mobile phone tax

Karachi: Human Rights Network HRN has demanded of the government to withdraw additional tax on mobile phone cards to facilitate consumers.

HRN Karachi chapter chairman Intikhab Alam Suri said the use of cell phone has become a necessity and mostly used by working class people. He said the additional indirect tax on cell phone loading cards would affect millions of mobile phone users in Pakistan.

He asked the government to immediately withdraw the additional tax on mobile phone, besides reducing the overall burden on indirect taxes on poor Pakistanis.
