NBR assures conditional support for transport sector
National Board of Revenue (NBR) Chairman Nojibur Rahman on Wednesday assured transport operators of providing necessary fiscal support if they are able to restore discipline in the sector.
“The transport sector is very crucial for the country's overall economic activities. The sector will get required support from the government on condition of ensuring discipline,” he said.
He was responding to a proposal for reducing tax on imported tyres for public transport at the pre-budget meeting with various trade associations ahead of preparing proposal for the Fiscal Year 2017-18.
Business leaders of automobile, transport, information communication and technology (ICT), telecommunication, electronics and electrical participated at the meeting, organised by the NBR at its conference room in its head office in the city’s Segunbagicha area.
