SRB received a total of Rs 128 billion during 2020-20, while Rs 106 billion was received during 2019-20, tax collection from the SRB reflecting a 21% increase despite the economic slowdown and Corona.
Rs. 6 billion was received for Sindh Welfare Fund last year, marking an increase fof 17% this year.
According to the spokesperson, SRB’s revenue has increased steadily since its inception in 2011 and is a manifestation of hard work and perseverance in performing its duties in a professional manner and through the workforce.
