Commerce Ministry, FBR asked to allow export of vegitable ghee to KPK, Balochistan

ISLAMABAD: Senate Standing Committee on Commerce directed the Ministry of Commerce and Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) to allow export of 1,000 metric tonnes of vegetable ghee under Duty & Tax Remission for Exports (DTRE) scheme for the ghee manufacturers of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) and Balochistan to promote and develop the industrial sector of these provinces.

The Senate Committee, which met here with Senator Haji Ghulam Ali in the chair, discussed mishandling of  DTRE scheme in KPK.

Senator Haji Ghulam Ali said that the scheme was started to promote and protect the industrial sector of these terrorism-hit provinces. He informed the committee that about four ghee mills had been closed for the last several years which were contributing Rs7.25 billion in terms of different duties.
