The FDA data will help the FBR identify the cases where the rates mentioned on transfer documents are much lower than the price at which the property was actually sold or purchased. For this purpose, the price mentioned in the transfer document will be compared with the data maintained by the department that maintains properties’ registry record. In addition to identifying the cases of miss declaration, the FBR will also identify benami properties.
