according to PTA's website and a msg from zong when u check the balance is that another tax is imposed on all telecom products e.g calls, sms etc. so now the tax is exceeded from 15% to 21%
copy past from PTA
FED on telecommunication services will enhance from 15% to 21% w.e.f. July 1, 2008. Withholding Tax (WHT) will continue to be charged @ 10% in addition to FED. Total Compounded Tax on telecommunication services will be 33.1%.
and the msg from Zong
Govt has revised tax rates. from now on tax deducyion will be 21% instead of 15%.
it means we will have 79Rs after loading a 100 rs card. #$%# on the face of this and previos govt.
