There are always two ways, one legal and the other illegal but how to make illegal, legal that’s what experts in corruption does being in departments what I am pointing at is, Vehicles from Afghanistan entering in Pakistan without paying custom duty and getting Computerized Registration In Karachi , Punjab , KP , Balochistan and Islamabad the Capital. In Pakistan almost 80 percent of the people know that Vehicles like Trucks Chassis, Toyota Corollas, Parado Jeeps, Mitsubishi Pajero 5 door/3 Door, 22 seater Vans, and list goes on, they come from across the border, at less than half of the price.
If you have good links in Government Go see and book yourself which ever you want and it will be delivered at your doorstep. no matter where you live in Pakistan, this smuggling has a quite long history when they are delivered to you, they are not registered, so after which you contact people in Excise Department Motor Registration Wing where from Clerk till ETO ( Excise & Taxation Officer) is involved, even till Director and Minister. Thing is How do they do this it, in this Computer age. well simple, take a example of Karachi Registration number sequence for Cars is like ZZZ-999 “If the Series is ZAA – 000 than it will start from ZAA-000 till ZAA – 999 in which 1000 vehicles will be computerized registered. Now what happens, people at department, skip few numbers from series like ZAA-435 , ZAA-674 etc.. When any non custom paid vehicle comes to get registered, It is evaluated by Make Model and Year Since Babe is about to become legalized. They have prefix charges without Custom file so lets say you bought Toyota Corolla 2007 which cost you 400,000 Rupees from Afghan brder, Registration will take 250,000 or 300,000 Rupees. In which not only it will be on the record “Computer” but they might provide you the Import File Custom paid documentation, It depends.
Once it’s done Toyota Corolla is ready to rumble on the roads with Registration, less or very weak chances of being caught why, because this vehicle is not stolen in Pakistan and did not came through proper channel so Custom does not have any record of it. People do this business buy from there, get it registered and than sell it on the showroom, because it costs you around 750k or maybe 800k or 8 Lacs, but the actual value of this vehicle is more than 1.4 million 14 Lacs, at showroom it worth same as Legally imported Vehicle of same make and model year. Easily profit more than 6 lacs. thats just assumption when it comes to Jeeps It’s in Millions.
Excise Ministry , Director , AETO , ETO’s are aware of all this but none is honest and let it happen at times they close this underway when FIA and other departments keep an eye on them, later again they carry on with the flow, once the number is in Computer means, It’s Valid and can be sold without hesitation. This corruption is going on ever since Excise and Taxation Motor Wing came in shape. well Vehicles don’t make much as much Property does. hopefully next time ill share how corruption in Property Tax and Registration works here in Pakistan.
NOTE : I receive tons of email every month regarding how to register non custom paid vehicles, well let me clear over here, I have no links in Excise department I just informed you about what is happening so kindly next time you email me don’t request for How to get it registered.
Plus, Make sure when you buy any vehicle Amnesty scheme vehicles poured in Pakistan they are completely legal, previous government made it easier to turn black into white however, File with Amnesty Scheme has 7 documents papers and from PORT like KPT has 14 documents file and the prices are different of both don’t get fooled to pay for Amnesty scheme vehicle as port cleared.
