Asad Umar said the federal government would not allow Sindh to charge KMC taxes on electricity bills. Administrator Karachi calls on the federal government not to create “obstacles” in KMC’s business. The Sindh government proposed to collect two taxes on behalf of KMC Fire Tax and Karachi Citizen Conservation Tax via K Electric monthly bill.

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

Two days ago, the Sindh government proposed the collection of two KMC taxes, a fire tax and a conservation tax, through monthly electricity bills sent to residents for collection.

Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah said the government has held talks with K Electric and the National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (NEPRA). Shah said: I also spoke to Finance Minister Shaukat Tarin, and just like we collect the TV bills, we will also collect the two KMC taxes.

The chief minister said the Sindh government wanted KMC to fend for itself.

Federal governments take

However, in a press conference today, Federal Planning and Development Minister Asad Umar said the federal government would not allow Sindh to charge KMC taxes on electricity bills.

The Federal Minister has informed the media that he has spoken with Federal Minister of Energy Hammad Azhar and that we will not endorse Sindh’s proposal. “The institutions each do their own work a lot.”

Meanwhile, Governor Sindh Imran Ismail said collecting taxes from Karachi residents via electricity bills will be an additional burden.

Ismail suggested that another method be used.

The federal government should not create barriers

Meanwhile, speaking to the media from the KMC office, Karachi administrator Murtaza Wahab said: We should all support the KMC.

Wahab called on the federal government not to create “obstacles” in KMC’s business.

He told reporters that Umar and Minister of Maritime Affairs Ali Zaidi opposed the Sindh government’s proposal.

KMC is trying to fend for itself and therefore, I hope Prime Minister Imran Khan will support Sindh in this regard, he said.
