Mr Asim Ahmed has already served as the FBR Chairman from April 2021 till August 2021. He also held the additional charge of a member of the information technology (IT) in the FBR.
According to media reports, a summary seeking appointment of the new FBR chief has been readied.
Last year in August, the federal government had appointed Dr Muhammad Ashfaq as new chairman of the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR). He replaced Asim Ahmed and was the seventh FBR chief being appointed by the previous PTI government since coming into power.
