Re: Operation Balakot: News & Discussion

It is quite brave of the PAF to respond with F-16s knowing they'll likely lose some, and they did lose one.

Touching the slab would mean giving up 12.5k from all taxpayers. That's a bigger hit for revenue.

For the ones who can't get below 5L taxable, Std exemption increased by 10k should help.

80c should be expanded to 2 or 2.5. 2 kids at school means you are already close to or over 1.5 :lol:
