Karachi: PRAL Employees face salary delays due to financial struggles. Employees of Pakistan Revenue Automation Limited (PRAL) find themselves facing salary delays for the month of October 2023, as the company is facing a financial crisis due to the inability of the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR). to clear its outstanding debt.
PRAL spends a huge amount of Rs. 183 million now from FBR for services provided under the service level agreement (SLA) entered into on June 30, 2023, and from previous years. Additionally, approval of the current year’s SLA is still pending and is currently being reviewed by the FBR.
In yet another financial setback, PRAL also faced difficulties in receiving Rs. 85 million from the Punjab Revenue Authority (PRA) for IT services provided by it. PRAL management is actively maintaining communication between FBR and PRA officials, working hard to resolve this financial situation as quickly as possible. They assured their employees that once the funds are released by the FBR and PRA, the overdue salaries will be handed over quickly. As a subsidiary of FBR, PRAL plays a vital role in providing IT solutions for tax collection and administration across the country, employing more than 1,000 dedicated professionals.
