Secretary General, Revenue Division/ Chairman Federal Board of Revenue, Mr. M. Abdullah Yusuf said that the security of official buildings and documents was a very critical and important issue today which needs to be addressed through effective use of technology and modern security equipments.
He was addressing the concluding session of one-day Workshop on Security Systems held under the auspices of Admn. Wing of FBR. All Chief Security Officers of FBR's field formations attended the Workshop.
The Chairman said that the Board's decision to improve the security of its offices was mainly due to the prevailing situation which demands fool-proof arrangements for the security of the Board and its units and safety of their employees as well as the visitors.
Mr. M. Abdullah Yusuf said that all the security personals need to be vigilant and properly trained. They must ensure that the visitor was going to only that office/ floor where he was authorised to go. He advised the participants to act in a professional manner so that the taxpayers feel secure and comfortable while visiting Board's reformed units. "We need to create and maintain the security of a high standard," he added.
