Excise duty waived off for vehicles imported for charitable purposes: Minister – Pakistan

KARACHI: The Sindh government waived excise duty for vehicles imported for charitable purposes, Sindh Excise and Taxation Minister Mukesh Kumar Chawla told the Sindh Assembly on Thursday.

The minister said the Sindh government followed the federal government, which also relaxed taxes for vehicles imported for charitable purposes.

He made it clear that only the federal government can provide tax relief on imported vehicles for charitable organizations. The Minister said that Alamgir Welfare Trust, Edhi Foundation, SIUT, Chippa Organization and other such charitable organizations have been given tax relief in this regard.

The adjustment motion on rising unemployment in Sindh by PPP MLA Shamim Mumtaz could not be taken up for discussion as the mover was absent from the proceedings of the House.

The House also rejected private bills introduced by the opposition, including “The Sindh Commuters Bill 2019” by Firdous Shamim Naqvi and “The Prevention and Protection of Domestic Violence (Amendment) Bill, 2020” by Rabia Azfar Nizami.

Sindh Assembly Speaker, Agha Siraj Durrani announced MQM MLA, Rana Ansar as the parliamentary leader of his party, becoming the first woman member to lead the party in the House.
