Who Can Lodge a Complaint?
 

Any person can file a complaint with the FTO if he feels aggrieved by an action or inaction of any functionary of the Revenue Division / FBR or its field formations which involve injustice and maladministration as defined in Section 2(3) of the FTO Ordinance 2000 as under:

"maladministration" includes,-

    (i)    a decision, process recommendation, act of omission or commission which-
           (a)   is contrary to law, rules or regulations or is a departure from established 
                 practice or procedure, unless it is bona fide and for valid reasons;

           (b)   is perverse, arbitrary or unreasonable, unjust, biased, oppressive, 
                 or discriminatory;

           (c)   is based on irrelevant grounds; or
           (d)   involves the exercise of powers, or the failure or refusal to do so, 
                 for corrupt or improper motives, such as bribery, jobbery, favouritism,
                 nepotism, and administrative excesses;


    (ii)   neglect, inattention, delay, incompetence, inefficiency and ineptitude,
           in the administration or discharge of duties and responsibilities;
