These rates – one, five, 10, or 15-percent - will be applicable on domestic assets, foreign assets, benami assets, and foreign liquid assets. Public office-holders would reportedly be barred from availing the assets declaration scheme.

The federal institution has also asked the government to prohibit individuals who seek to regularise their ill-gotten wealth from availing the amnesty scheme.
