That's the definition of an overt subsidy.. there are many other ways to give a subsidy without being so blatant.

KHurram i would seriously advise u to firstly understand what one is trying to ask and then starts replying.

This forum is for general discussion and every body is at general libery to ask what he wants.

i would recommend u to firstly study this whole topic,then study income tax ordinance 2001 and if the definition which i required is given in the ordinanc,then please write it here.if it is not given(which is the case) then please shut ur mouth up.

Shahid fss had already replied to ur similar post which u deleted after his post.so dont dare to delete ur post this time.And please dont do these cheap things.

Lastly if anybody knows the answer regarding my subsidy question then please answer it because i still dont know whether a subsidy can be given out of taxes or not.
