Pakistan’s physically handicapped allowed duty-free import of cars

Internews Report

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan government has allowed custom duty-free import of new cars of 1350cc or less by physically challenged citizens for personal use, the Federal Board of Revenue has announced.

physically_handicapped

The FBR issued a notification allowing import of such cars for personal use of disabled persons to overcome their disability, subject to fulfilment of criteria and conditions laid down in the policy.

The notification said that at the time of import of car the disabled person must have import authorisation certificate from the commerce ministry. Under the scheme, a disabled person would be allowed to import only one car and it would not be sold or transferred to any person before the expiry of five years from the date of its arrival in Pakistan.

The criteria of eligibility laid down under the Import Order allows a Pakistani national suffering from physical disability (excluding mental retardation and old-age disability) to apply to the board for import a new car of the said capacity.

Cars imported under the scheme would be for personal use of the disabled person and would not be used for commercial purposes and only a brand new car would be imported under the scheme.

The car would bear a special registration number and special colour plates mentioning “Disabled Person Car” provided by the provincial excise and taxation department.

  23. In my opinion unnecessary terms & conditions have rendered this programme useless. The conditions of brand new cars fitted with special gadgets and of upto 1350cc engine capacity are imposed just to make it sure that no one could avail this facility. For example, prices of brand new cars are exorbitantly high, abroad. Price of brand new Locally assembled corolla is Rs 1450000 but price of toyota Belta (1000cc/1300cc) is $22000 in japan and that of Vitz/ Passo is more than $14000 which are even very high without freight charges and leviable taxe.
    Special gadgets like hand control and mobility seats for vehicles are available in the local markets on very reasonable prices and all necessary modification work could be carried out locally quite easily, whereas, mostly vehicles fitted with special gadgets are of over 1350cc engine capacity and their prices are very high. Ordinary vehicles like corolla are of over 1500cc engine capacity. So in fact these condition have been imposed only to cheat physically challenged people. If the govt really wants to facilitate the special persons, It should remove the above mentioned conditions and all the peoples with disability should be allowed to import duty free cars upto five year old models, with an engine capacity of upto 2500cc and with or without
    fitted special gadgets.

  24. i am special person. i want to the procedure of car scheme by ministry of commerce.if somone infom me i wil be thankful

  25. i totally agree with Masaood Shirazi, coz they do not want the disabled persons to drive cars on the roads of Pakistan, as a person with a disability can’t get a driving license in this country which is the main condition of this notification. however, i m trying to get my car approved from the ministry and after that i’ll try my best to get some relaxation in any condition that apply to us, as i m a disable too but my disability does’t count coz i can drive both manual and auto transmission and have a valid LTV license…
    friends pray if it works, i swear everybody like me would be driving a car…..

  35. Disabled people exist in Pakistan the same way they exist in other countries around the world. Yet, disabled people are more ‘visible’ in other parts of the world as compared to Pakistan. In Pakistan, people who are unfortunately bound by immobility have no option but to stay ‘hidden’ and home-bound since they are not facilitated to access venues of social participation.

    It is sad to see that there are no ramp provisions or facilitations for people in Pakistan who might be benefited by riding wheelchairs. In places like England, they have planned cities with the conscious awareness of laying down footpaths next to roads with ramps linking the two. Even their bus systems are designed such that people with wheelchairs can get on and off a bus quite easily.

    On the contrary, in Pakistan, amazingly, there are no ramps for wheelchairs catered by most schools, restaurants, grocery stores, bookshops, mosques, pharmacies, shopping malls, movie theatres, public transport facilities, post offices, and so on, with only a handful of respect-worthy exceptions such as airports, a few universities, and perhaps some elitist socialising clubs. In the absence of ramps, where would the disabled people go?

    Everywhere around the world, concerned public and private institutions should undertake the social responsibility of incorporating permanent or makeshift ramp provisions that could facilitate people with disabilities to participate in social activities.

  45. The policy for disable persons is appreciated but if the disable person belongs to poor family , then how he can buy new car , so please modify this policy and allow old model ( at least 5 years old model car) which he can afford , and also allow him to buy a car on easy installments without any extra charges ( duty etc ) inside the country , help mean really help the disable persons.
    looking forward for your kind approval.

    kindly do the needful on urgent basis.
    Regards & Thanks
