Project description

This report revealed for the first time that Balochistan is losing approximately Rs28 billion from its due share in the federal divisible pool due to manipulation of poverty figures. The poverty rate is higher in Balochistan as proved by the latest Report on Multidimensional Poverty 2016. However, while distributing collected taxes from federal divisible pool among provinces the poverty rate of Balochistan has been understated. As a result, the province is losing out on its due share by Rs. 28 billion every year.
