45% Reduction by FBR on Imported Phones

It is mandatory for each individual to register the phone that he or she is bringing from abroad. The registration process is compulsory to discourage the phone smuggling mafias. This registration process is carried on by FBR.

FBR in collaboration with PTA is bringing a new set-up in the form of reduction of duty taxes on imported phones. This step is taken to stop phone smuggling mafias to smuggle the phones.

FBR will use PTA DRIBS System to Register all the Phones That will Come from Abroad

FBR has decided to impose taxes on imported phones less than 45% of the currently prevailing charges. It is good news for the people who come from foreign countries and they have to pay heavy phone taxes. This step by FBR is very much appreciable because it will release the people from carrying extra monetary burden.

Both PTA and FBR aim at bringing a smuggled free system in Pakistan. This initiative was very much compulsory to cope with the problem of smuggled phones.

PTA has already given the instructions for the passengers to register their phones legally as prescribed process. This will help them to protect themselves from falling in prey to smuggled phone mafias. These mafias can cause severe damage in the form of selling illegal and duty free smuggled mobiles to the passengers and can also use their details for any illegal purpose.

FBR and PTA both are really concerned about the safety of passengers coming from outside countries. Therefore they have designed this set-up. Because foreign passengers have several complaints about the heavy duty taxes on mobiles. This reduction of 45% in taxes will lessen their complaints. Along with this DIRBS will be strictly used and proposal of biometric verification is under consideration.

The only need for passengers is to alleging with the regulatory authorities to avoid any sort of misconduct and to protect themselves from being harmed by any illegal personnel. Therefore FBR has initiated the step.
