According to the report of the news agency Xinhua, while reviewing the program with the IMF, the minister said that Pakistan has given loans to reduce the circular loan, but the demand for increase in electricity rates is not understood.

If GDP does not increase by at least 5 percent, the country will face a serious crisis in the next several years. The Minister said that the growth rate will improve only when special attention is given to the economy, agriculture with special attention and towards advancing the industry rapidly. He said that the government is working towards widening the tax net, but cannot compel people to pay more tax under the current scenario.

According to local media, Pakistan has promised to raise taxes to the IMF to the tune of Rs 1.272 trillion and increase the electricity rates by about Rs 5 per unit.
