ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Finance and Revenue Ishaq Dar on Saturday described the FY2023-24 budget as being different from past traditional budgets, emphasising its focus on progress linked to economic growth.

The minister was addressing the post-budget press conference in Islamabad a day after he presented the federal budget for Fiscal Year 2023-24 with a total outlay of Rs14.5 trillion.

Addressing the presser, the finance minister said that the coalition government will remove reservations of traders before passing the federal budget from parliament. The minister said that he will form 2 committees to address business-related issues and technical matters.

“There is a customary practice of forming two committees within the FBR — one for business-related issues and the other for technical matters,” Ishaq Dar added.

The finance minister said committees will be formed by Monday by FBR chairman, adding that the main purpose of forming these committees is to address any missed aspects and provide an opportunity for individuals to consider their genuine reservations.
