SHC suspends enhancement by DG Valuation above Valuation Ruling

KARACHI: An appellate bench of High Court of Sindh comprising Justice Munib Akhtar and Justice Anwar Hussain on Tuesday suspended an enhancement in value of Baby Diapers over  and above a Valuation Ruling.

The bench held that act of the Director General Valuation is beyond jurisdiction and thus void. The bench was hearing a constitution petition filed by United World Corporation. Ghulamullah Shaikh advocate appearing for the petitioner submitted that the Valuation Ruling fixed a rate of US $ 2.2 per kilograms which was on higher side. The petitioner challenged the VR in revision but instead of reducing the value, DG Valuation enhanced the rate of duty from US $ 2.2 to US $ 2.6.

The bench ordered release of the consignment at valuation ruling i.e 2.2 US $ per kilogram.
