KARACHI: The Directorate of Afghan Transit Trade (ATT) has not yet been organized and systematized to work as a unit owing to lack of interest among Customs officials.
Sources informed Customs Today that the 12th floor of the Customs House building, which was marked out for the construction of the Directorate of ATT offices quite some time back, still presents a deserted look. No other office except that of ATT Assistant Director has been set up so far, they added.
The sources disclosed: “The construction of ATT offices on the top floor has been at a standstill for a long time and none of the high officials of the Directorate of Afghan Transit Trade are interested in inspecting and expediting the construction work.”
It is pertinent to mention here that there is no lift to go to the said floor and the offices of the Director General (DG) ATT and all other officials concerned are on the 8th floor of the Customs House.
