Kamal’s assets were worth Rs252 million in 2015 which jumped to Rs371 million in 2018, swelling to Rs1.2 billion while the liability was halved to Rs20 million in 2019.

Kamal’s normal income was shown as Rs87.2 million with taxes of Rs11.751 million in the financial year 2019, as per the annual MPs’ tax directory.

He paid taxes of Rs43,735 in 2013, Rs257,361 in 2014, and Rs988,306 in 2015, before jumping significantly to Rs4.018 million in 2016.

Following a significant increase in tax liabilities, he paid Rs6.146 million in taxes in 2017, and then Rs4.809 million in 2018.

When approached, Jam Kamal explained the change in the value of his assets over time.

“For a long time, I’ve been a regular income taxpayer. I have done everything with full transparency, documentation, and clarity. I am one of the biggest political taxpayers in Balochistan along with all records.”
