A revenue collection target of over Rs.7 trillion is anticipated to be established by the government for the fiscal year 20222-23. This is because of the robust rise of revenues during the current fiscal year (2021-22), which the administration would take into consideration.

According to the sources, the current coalition government has made the decision to allot Rs800 billion to the Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP) for the following fiscal year.
