KARACHI: A tiles importer has filed an appeal before Port Muhammad Bin Qasim Collector challenging an Order in Original (ONO) and a show-cause notice.
The appellant/importer, Home Solutions, imported tiles in Hexagonal shape and declared the measurement as 3,327 square meters as per international standard method.
The Customs Department questioned the measurement and held that importer mis-declared the measurement which was 3,966 meters. A show-cause was issued while the importer filed an appeal, and an ONO was also issued against them.
However in the intervening period, Deputy Collector Customs deciding a representation by the importer declared the measurement by the importer was correct. In view of conflicting orders, the importer filed an appeal before Collector Customs, Port Muhammad Bin Qasim to be heard in next week.
