KARACHI:

The custom care system was established for clearance of export and import shipments by a world-renowned software company was operating whose contract with the government is going to end on May 15.

A huge sum of funds was utilized to establish the custom care system.

Pakistan Revenue Automation Private Limited is also working to prepare a software akin to the custom care system and import and export shipments would be cleared manually under the E-filing system.

Vice Chairman All Pakistan Custom Agents Association Arshad Jamal told Online that the E-filing system for clearance of import and export shipments would not be implemented completely. Only clearance agents of few multinational companies would be able to avail this facility.

The new E-Filing system would be Pakistani made and people can use it for their vested interest, he said. He demanded continuity of the custom care system.
