ISLAMABAD: Finance Minister Saleem Mandviwalla, while talking to the media, said that around 1.5 million people have the National Tax Number (NTN), out of which only 0.9 million pay their taxes, Roznama Express reported Saturday.

He also said that the finance ministry was reviewing the flat rates of agricultural tube wells and if they were approved then the subsidies would be allocated promptly. More
