The government on Saturday appointed Muhammad Javed Ghani as the new chairman of the Federal Board of Revenue, the fourth such appointment made to the position since the ruling PTI took office.
He replaces Nausheen Amjad, who was appointed to head the tax body.
“The federal government has been pleased to assign additional charge of the post of chairman, Federal Board of Revenue, to Mr. Muhammad Javed Ghani … for a period of three months or till the posting/appointment of a regular incumbent; whichever is earlier,” a notification issued by the Establishment Division said.
A second notification issued by the Establishment Division said Amjad, a BS-22 officer of the Inland Revenue Service who was serving as the FBR chairperson, has been transferred and posted as the secretary of the National Heritage and Culture Division.
Ghani is a BS-22 officer of the Pakistan Customs Service who is currently posted as a member of the FBR. According to his Twitter profile, Ghani holds an LLM (Master of Laws) degree in international economic law from WarwickUniversity.
