KARACHI: The importers of heavy machinery and chemical are facing problems in clearing their consignments as no collector customs of adjudication – I, Karachi, has been assigned by the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) since the last 16 days.


Importers have requested the FBR chairman to appoint officers for early clearance of their consignments.


“The collector, collectorate of customs (adjudication – I) is transferred on July 01, 2013. Since then the post has been lying vacant, causing delays in cases that are pending before the collector,” Khurram Ijaz, Ijaz & Sons, Customs Clearing & Forwarding Agents, requested the FBR in a letter.


On July 9, the FBR had notified a major reshuffle in Inland Revenue Services and Pakistan Customs and posted / transferred grade 20 and grade 21 officers. However, no assignment was given an officer for the position of collector adjudication – I.
