KARACHI: Director General Customs Valuation Syed Tanveer Ahmed has revised the customs values of metallic yarn of Dubai origin at $4.05/kg and Japan origin at $7.0/kg and amended the Valuation Ruling 964/2016 accordingly. M/s Bright Industries had approached the Director General submitting that the value of aluminum metalized metallic yarn M-Type had been fixed at $4.0/kg for China/India origin and $7.0/kg for other origins. The raw material used for production of the items of all origins are the same. The Departmental representatives submitted several copies of GDs/invoices of import of Japan origin goods indicating values from $7/kg to $9/kg. They further stated that 90% of goods are imported from China, 8% from India and only 2% from other origins which includes Japan, Denmark, UK, Korea,Belgium and Germany.
