KARACHI - The Sindh Excise and Taxation Department has decided to launch a road checking campaign against tax defaulting vehicles from June 24 to 27.

This was decided in a meeting chaired by Sindh Minister for Excise and Taxation & Narcotics Control and Parliamentary Affairs Mukesh Kumar Chawla here in his office, said a statement on Saturday. Secretary Excise and Taxation & Narcotics Control Abdul Rahim  Shaikh, Director Generals Shabbir Ahmed Shaikh, Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui and other officers also attended the meeting.

Director General Excise and Taxation Shabbir Ahmed Shaikh briefed the meeting that during proposed road checking campaign, the action would be taken against the use of motor vehicle by second or progressive owners on transfer of ownership letters (open letters) as well as defaulting vehicles such as non-payments of motor vehicle tax throughout the Sindh Province. Checking teams had been constituted for the purpose and hopefully the campaign to nab tax defaulting vehicles will be a successful, he added.

Chawla expressed his satisfaction over arrangements for the campaign and asked the concerned officers to remain strict for collection of the taxes because no one was above the law.
