Glowing tributes were paid to retired FBR Chairman Nisar Muhammad at a farewell function arranged by the Members and officers of FBR here in the capital.
Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Revenue Senator Haroon Akhtar Khan also joined the entire senior FBR management in giving a befitting send-off to Mr. Nisar Muhammad who joined FBR in 1982 as a young CSS officer and came to occupy the highest office in the organisation through his professional competence, personal acumen and exemplary leadership skills honed in an illustrious career spanning over 34 years.
Speaking on the occasion, Senator Haroon Akhtar Khan described the outgoing chairman as a solid professional who always led the way in performing the prime duty of revenue generation and resource mobilisation. He said the Chairman had the ability to not only drive revenue growth but also ensured a unity of purpose and highest work ethics during his stewardship of the FBR.
Member Operations and acting Chairman FBR Dr. Muhammad Irshad also hailed the services of Nisar Muhammad in providing all-out support to further modernise and enhance the capacity of Inland Revenue Service and creating an enabling environment for the officers to work optimally for resource mobilisation.
Speaking on the occasion, outgoing Chairman Nisar Muhammad thanked his friends and colleagues in FBR for giving him a memorable farewell. He said serving FBR was a great honour and heading the organisation even greater given the amount of support and cooperation he received from the entire FBR organisation and particularly the senior hierarchy which stood behind him in every endeavour to enhance the revenues and meet the revenue collection targets. He said he felt grateful to the Almighty God for all the honours, respect and dignity with which he was able to complete his tenure in civil service.
