FBR tightens rules to check superfluous imports

FBR has tightened its clearance regulations to check unnecessary imports that cause a spread in trade deficit. Restriction on clearance of around 1,875 items was imposed considering the abnormal rise in imports. Now, an individual would not be able to file goods declaration on his own for clearance of goods falling under 45 different categories, instead, these items will only be cleared through goods declaration filed by a licensed customs agent.
