KARACHI: The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has restructured the functions of Pakistan Customs and divided it into four regions to resolve problems faced by taxpayers and enable authorities to focus on the policy development and formulation, according to a statement on Tuesday.
According to a notification, the FBR amended the Customs General Order No 15 of October 10, 2007 under which two regions were operational.
With the CGO No 14 of September 7, 2012, the country has been divided into four regions, including north, central, appraisement and enforcement.
The notification said that the north region will consist of Model Customs Collectorate (MCC), Peshawar; MCC Islamabad; MCC Sambrial (Sialkot); and MCC Gilgit-Baltistan. The central region will include MCC (Appraisement), Lahore; MCC (Preventive) Lahore; MCC Faisalabad; and MCC Multan.
MCC PaCCS, MCC Appraisement and MCC Port Qasim in Karachi would fall under the appraisement region, it said.
Meanwhile, the enforcement region will include MCC Preventive Karachi, MCC Export Karachi, MCC Hyderabad, MCC Quetta, and MCC Gwadar.
The notification also said that the four regions would be headed by chief collector of customs. The reason for the appointment of chief collectors is to provide senior level operational heads in the field so that day-to-day operational issues faced by the collectorates and the public are addressed and resolved expeditiously, enabling the FBR to concentrate on the policy development and formulation, it added.
