KARACHI: Officials of Model Customs Collectorate Appraisement-West have half-heartedly implemented Collector Muhammad Saleem’s directions regarding renovation of Appraising Intelligence Branch.
It was observed that the renovation/refurbishment work has been completed without bringing necessary changes ordered by Collector Saleem.
The offices have been painted while no new furniture and ceiling fans have been inducted during the renovation work.
Collector Saleem during his visit to the AIB/R&D Section in November directed the authorities concerned to present a summary of the allocated funds required for the renovation of entire AIB/R&D Section, including law/legal branch and others, so that the collectorate can issue the required funds for the renovation work respectively.
Collector Saleem asked the AIB/R&D Section officials to refurbish the entire branch on contemporary lines to give a good impression to the visitors and importers.
In this connection, Rs 0.5 million had been allocated. However; the funds have been utilised completely in the renovation work of AIB/R&D Section.
Now, it is a matter of great concern to the authorities concerned of the Collectorate to find out amount, which had been utilized in the renovation of AIB/R&D section.
