KARACHI: An appellate bench of High Court of Sindh (SHC) comprising Justice Munib Akhtar and Justice Mrs Ashraf Jahan issuing notice for Jan 26 to Pakistan Customs restrained the officials/ respondents concerned from taking any coercive action against Nishat Mills, importer of LED Lights.

The petitioner challenged the imposition of the custom duty, taxes and other levies denying the concessionary rates. The denial was on ground that LED lights are now being produced locally.

The petitioner claims that LED lights are not manufactured in Pakistan so far and hence they are entitled to concessions allowed under a CGO.

The bench after hearing the sides ordered the respondents to come up with a reply and fizxed Jan 26 for a decision.
