PESHAWAR: To facilitate taxpayers and support Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Revenue Authority (KPRA) in its strategy of digital transformation, the USAID-funded Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Revenue Mobilization Activity on Tuesday handed over equipment to the Authority.

The Director-General KPRA Capt. (Rtd.) Shahbaz Tahir Nadeem formally received the equipment including call center setup, video conferencing, e-hearing system, furniture, laptops, and ACs from the USAID-KPRM in a ceremony held at the KPRA head office Peshawar.

Speaking at the occasion, Director General KPRA Capt. (Rtd.) Shahbaz Tahir Nadeem thanked the USAID-KPRM team for assisting KPRA in its steps taken for the taxpayers’ facilitation and strengthening of the Authority.

“The equipment will help KPRA to provide quick and more efficient response to taxpayers’ queries and will connect the taxpayers to right officers related to their issues,” he said, adding that they hope that USAID-KPRM will continue its support with the KPRA for taxpayers’ facilitation and tax acculturation in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

USAID’s KPRM activity chief Temur Ahmad said that they will continue to provide support to KPRA for its strengthening and also discussed training arrangements for the KPRA staff in audit and other fields.
