All housing society data, including those pertaining to plot cutting and land purchases, would be registered, according to the sources. Housing society registration will become mandatory, and the FBR will periodically update its database with information on plot sales and real estate agents.

The IMF will get a coordination report on the province-by-province taxation of the real estate industry. According to sources, the next federal budget (2024–25) would include measures to end unrecorded real estate transactions and levy taxes when necessary.

There will be a further hike in tax rates for non-filers who purchase and sell plots, according to sources. Plot sellers are currently subject to a regular 4 percent gain tax and 7 percent withholding tax.
