From the above amendments, it can clearly be seen that DIVISION-I of PART-I of SCHEDULE-I of Income Tax Ordinance 2001 (Amended upto 30-06-2017) has now been changed with new DIVISION-I (As highlighted in yellow colour).

CONCLUSION:

حال ہی میں انکم ٹیکس (امینڈمینٹ) آرڈیننس 2018 متعارف کروایا گیا ہے، جس میں انکم ٹیکس آرڈیننس2001 (تبدیلی از تاریخ 30جون2017) کو کچھ حد تک تبدیل کیا گیا ہے۔  اِس تبدیلی میں ملازمین کے لیے  ایک بہت بڑا ریلیف مہیا کیا گیا ہے ۔ انکم ٹیکس (امینڈمینٹ) آرڈیننس 2018  میں شیڈول -1 میں موجود پارٹ-1میں موجود ڈویژن -1 میں مکمل طور پر تبدیلی گئی ہے اور اِس میں نئے اِنکم ٹیکس ریٹس وضع کیے گئے ہیں۔ یہاں یہ بات واضح کرنا ضروری ہے کہ پہلے جو انکم ٹیکس وصول کیا جاتا تھا، وہ شیڈول -1 میں موجود پارٹ-1میں موجود ڈویژن -1 کے مطابق لیا جاتا تھا ۔ اب شیڈول -1 میں موجود پارٹ-1میں موجود ڈویژن -1کو مکمل طور پر نئے آرڈیننس  کے ذریعے تبدیل کر دیا گیا ہے۔  لہٰذا پہلے ریٹ پر لیا جانے والا انکم ٹیکس 30جون 2018کے بعد قابلِ عمل نہیں ہوگا۔
