Although telecom services in Pakistan was given slight relief of one percent in General Sales Tax (GST) by Federal Government but it was taken away as all provisional governments except Balochistan Pakistan deducts the GST on provincial level. This all is due to the National Finance Commission (NFC) Award.

Previously telecom sector was paying 19.5 percent GST but in recent budget, GST (General Sales Tax) was reduced to 18.5 percent in Islamabad, AJK ,Balochistan, FATA, and Gilgit Baltistan.

Federal Government is expecting that Provinces like Punjab, Sindh and KPK will also try to reduce this GST to 18.5 percent in order to bring uniformity in taxes collection across Pakistan.
