CNG-driven auto-rickshaws and other engine or battery-driven three-wheelers will be brought under the tax scheme in the upcoming budget, National Board of Revenue (NBR) said today.
"CNG three-wheeler owners must have Tax Identification Number (TIN) from next fiscal," NBR Chairman Md Mosharraf Hossain Bhuiyan said at a pre-budget discussion.
He was meeting automobile and transport operators and their stakeholders in Dhaka.
CNG auto-rickshaw and three-wheeler motorbike association leaders also expressed their willingness to have trade licence and TIN at the meeting.
There are around 20,000 CNG auto-rickshaws actively plying in Dhaka, Md Aslam Ali, president of Four-Stroke CNG Auto-rickshaw and Three-Wheeler Association said.
