FBR Exempts Section 7E

Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) exempts Section 7E on the real estate sector of Punjab, after the decision of the Lahore High Court (LHC). It is a relief to the real estate sector after section 7E is discontinued by the authority. Section 7E will not be imposed on the transactions of property like sale, purchase, and transfer.
