ISLAMABAD: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has decided to allow the exemption of duties and taxes on the import of bulletproof vehicles of up to 6,000cc for senior most officials of the armed forces after their retirement.

Sources told Business Recorder here on Friday that the FBR will issue a notification in this regard.

The notification has been vetted by the Law Division and subsequently signed by the competent authority.

FBR reduces CVT on vehicles under amended Finance Bill 2022

According to the sources, the exemption of customs duty, sales tax, withholding tax, and the Federal Excise Duty (FED) would be applicable on the import of bullet proof vehicles of up to 6,000cc by the lieutenant generals, services chiefs, chief of army staff, and chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC), after their retirement.

On the recommendations of the Ministry of Defence, the FBR will allow the exemption of duties and taxes on the import of such vehicles by the said officials on their retirement.

The owners of the vehicles would be required prior permission of the FBR for the sale of such vehicles after their import. If the vehicle is disposed of before five years period, the FBR will recover all applicable duties and taxes applicable at the time of import of such vehicles, the sources added.

NOT WITHOUT AN UNDERTAKING THAT THIS VEHICLE SHALL NEVER BE SOLD TO OR USED BY ANYONE ELSE, PENALTY BEING CONFISCATION OF VEHICLE PERMENANTLY. MAKING SURE THAT THE VEHICLE NEVER FALLS IN THE WRONG HANDS. COULD BE A DISASTER.

@Syed Arif Hussain Zahidi, also, every year around 100,000 PKR as renewal fee for NOC if not renewed it can also be confiscated. 100,000 being on luxury cars such as land cruiser etc subject to change any time. It's more like dictated policy by interior ministry with no room for communicated between ministry and end user.

What are the basis of this relief? Can these generals afford purchase and then maintained 6000 CC vehicles? Is it kind of flattering of the establishment or move to defame Army? Whatever is it is fishy.

Damn this government, damn Ministry of Defense, damn FBR and damn those who signed it into Law. This is called the Law of the Jungle. This is utter insanity. Do such most illogical things happen in the world? Not at all. As a citizen of Pakistan, I condemn this move in the strongest possible terms. The FBR should expect no more taxes from me.

Wow, another damage once again given by so called neutrals. On which face they are enquiring tosha khana when other institutions are misusing the same opportunity. What kind of threats they are receiving that required luxury cars for protection. Shameless people
