    Angry Government bans import of 5 year old used cars

    As expected the Government has banned import of 4 and 5 year old used cars as our local assemblers were unable to either improve quality or reduce their profit margins. Unable to compete they decided to provide "incentives" to the decision makers to ban the imports. Now we are stuck with shitty cars being assembled in Pakistan. Millions of people will lose their jobs who work at car retails shops, workshops, importers, middlemen and many others just so that few people can get more rich. The helpless pakistani people now have to buy corolla, civic, and alto for the rest of their lives.
    I have created a facebook page to support removal of this ban. Please like that page so that we can send it to the MNAs and politicians so that they know what we want for the next elections.

    It is three years, but that means that the price will be so high that it will be impossible to buy so effectively it is a ban

    Yaar a total ban and three year bans are two different things , i think you would still get ur JDM Altos and other small cars at almost the same rate as before , problem is with the big cars they are expensive if you buy newer models

    3 year old cars were always allowed even before 2010, but no body imported them as they are too expensive on two counts, first the original price of a three year old in japan is high and then the duty rebate is only 36% instead of 60% on that price. So it all adds up, thats why the have changed it to three years knowing fully well that all cars will be out of reach.

    Sohna ji if local industry provides good quality vehicles then why would anyone opt for imports? Instead of ripping off people they should improve their quality and technology
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    I am not in favor of any ban but one should not be allowed to spend foreign exchange to luxury items. Pakistan foreign currency reserves effects every aspect of life . Those who want to buy should arrange their foreign exchange and buy whatever they feel like. No one should be allowed to spend this shared resource which can impact the prices of food items even
