The Government of Pakistan barred non-filers to purchase any vehicle from 1, July 2018. However, according to the fresh development and as reported by the news channel City 42, non-filers would be allowed to buy vehicles having engine capacity less than 1000cc. Previously, aside from buying cars, the government also banned non-filers to even buy a bike, but now they would be able to buy bikes as well.
The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) will issue the official directive in next 2-3 days. We also contacted an official and he also confirmed that the work is being done on the issue and in next few days, hopefully, the non-filers will be allowed to purchase cars and other vehicles. Excise and Taxation Department has already issued a notification to its directors in this regard.
After the government barred non-filers to purchase or book a vehicle, the local assemblers, following the order, also stopped bookings from non-filers. It is to be noted here that the Senate Standing Committee on Finance had recommended to the government to relax restrictions on non-filers and allow them to buy or import cars up to 1000cc to give relief to the middle-class population of the country. However, the proposal was rejected by the government. But it seems that now the authorities would soon allow people to buy vehicle having engine capacity less than 1000cc.
Let’s see, whether the concerned authorities really allow the non-filers to buy a vehicle or not. Stay tuned to PakWheels.com.
