In a notification issued by the Federal Board of Revenue on Thursday, the Electronic Monitoring System will be implemented to track the production and sale of goods in a legal manner on all manufacturing sides.

The notice was issued by the Inland Revenue-Operations department, following approval from FBR’s further added that “no cement bag will be allowed to be removed from a production site, factory, or manufacturing plant or import station without affixation of tax stamps / unique identification markings with effect from October 1, 2022.”
