For this purpose the LCCI will arrange the seminars and workshops to create awareness amongst the business community of Lasbela and Balochistan. During the discussion in the seminar he suggested that in order to ascertain the total amount of tax revenue generated in Balochistan he suggested the amendment in the tax returns by way of adding a column in the return forms for entry of the “Source of Origin” of the respective tax.

He said that with the help of source of origin the total tax generated in any particular area may be determined easily and this type of data will also be helpful to calculate the NFC Award for the provinces in addition to get the first hand knowledge of the economic activity potential of a particular area.
