In pursuance of the Federal Board of Revenue’s (FBR) directions, a joint team of Pakistan Customs and Inland Revenue visited the Mall of Lahore in its ongoing anti-smuggling drive on Wednesday. Around 22 shops were visited to sensitise managers to display their NTNs, STRNs and update their returns to substantiate the origin of imported goods. The retailers were asked to update their records within 15 days to which they responded positively. The FBR team faced no disturbance and the visit remained peaceful.
