KARACHI: The Model Customs Collectorate Adjudication II Collector Tahir Qureshi has written a letter to the additional collector and deputy collector asking them for details of pending cases, especially that of September and October.
Sources told Customs Today that the purpose behind this is to adopt a reasonable strategy for the speedy solution of cases. The cases involving high amounts will be solved on a priority basis. Collector Tahir Qureshi has taken the charge recently and wants to review every case to ensure that verdicts are given on merit.
He has also started studying the laws in the form of SROs. The adjudication collector wants the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to review and explain SROs as he has noticed that some laws need further explanation like SRO-182 and 183, which is related to bank guarantees. He has already written a letter to the FBR in this regard, but the latter has not replied so far.
It is expected that the adjudication collector will write more letters to the FBR until necessary amendments are made.
It is necessary to mention here that Adjudication II Collector Tahir Qureshi has transferred in this Collectorate in the month of September 2017 and he is very active collector in previous history of customs.
