Mobile network operators have now abolished the service charges and operational charges on mobile top-ups in Pakistan.
According to a report published by ProPakistani, be it card recharge or amount transfer, the Supreme Court has restored all taxes on mobiles last month in its latest verdict and did not interfere with matters of public revenue and tax collection system.
Users who recharge Rs.100 via card of top-up will receive Rs.88 as their mobile balance. Previously, a user used to receive Rs.72-77. All telecom operators have now started to adopt this new rate.
Furthermore, the report claims that the 10% service/maintenance charges on every Rs. 100 card has now been withdrawn. On the other hand, mobile users will have to pay 12.5% withholding tax and 19.5% FED as it is still applicable on every recharge.
Previously, customers had 10 months of no tax charges, on each rs.100 recharge they received the complete amount.
