Kevin Knight, Etihad Airways’ Chief Strategy and Planning Officer, said: “Our unique partner strategy has been highly successful and we are pleased to add Pakistan International Airlines to our growing list of successful code share partners.

“There is a long and proud history of travel between Abu Dhabi and cities across Pakistan, and this new code-share agreement – between the national airlines of the UAE and Pakistan – will make that experience, as well as travel onwards to Africa, Europe, and the United States, that much easier.”

    Hi Everyone. The real budget bomb on banking industry is going to fall on very next day that is July 1, 2015. Every non filer customer or walk in customer would have to pay 0.6% adjustable tax on each and every banking transactions on every payments exceeds Rs. 50,000/- in a day which includes sale of any instrument, including demand draft, payment order, cash deposit receipt, short term deposit receipt, call deposit receipt, transfer of any sum through cheque or clearing, online transfer between accounts or between different bank customers, account to account transfer, TTs. Online Funds Transfer, Funds transfer via ATM or Web. Payments through mobile phones.

    How painful story is above…. 1 can imagine very well that how much tax are paying by our peers politicians and how much an ordinary man would pay from July 1, 2015. Where would the banking industry will move? Which country have such a huge tax network. How an ordinary man will bear this kind of huge tax ? How this will badly affect prices of daily items as the ultimate and final target is consumers.

    Is there anyone who could ask the high ups about injustice that has been adopted in order to increase revenue by means of tax killings?
