Air pistols, air pellets: LCCI body seeks duty-free import

The Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) Standing Committee for Pak-India Trade Promotion has called upon the Ministry of Commerce (MoC) to allow duty free import of air pistols and air pellets in the upcoming Trade Policy. One of the senior members of LCCI) Standing Committee for Pak-India Trade Promotion Javed Malik said, although the government has allowed the import of air arms, but the exact wording of 'air pistols and air pellets' could not be included in the SRO list which creates confusion.

He asked the Ministry of Commerce to remove confusion by allowing the import of pistols and pellets. Javed Malik pointed out due to restriction on commercial import of air pellets smuggling of these goods are on the rise, causing financial loss to national exchequer. Further, he said, locally-made air pellets are substandard which also damage the high standard air guns.

Javed Malik who is CEO of Broda Sports urged the government to remove additional regulatory duty of 20-per cent on import of air guns which are just supporting weapons. There is no regulatory duty on fire arm but the simple weapon which even needs not any license is facing high duties, he said. It may be noted that the air guns and air pistols are used in air shooting competition of Olympic apart from other sports competitions. This game is getting popularity in Pakistan too.
