ISLAMABAD: Pakistan will impose an extra one-time 10% tax on large scale industry for one year ahead of a deal to be finalised with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Finance Minister Miftah Ismail said on Friday.

The announcement has come ahead of a crucial deal to be struck with the IMF for Pakistan which is facing a balance of payment crisis.
