Miseries of tractor spare parts manufacturing industry: Tractor spare parts manufacturing industry is at the verge of collapse as the industry has been plagued with enormous problems. The general sales tax left the industry in the lurch while people associated with the industry have been making a litany of complaints, regretting that their livelihood has suffered a lot due to the levy. The unavailability of tractor parts stoked price hike while the people associated with agriculture were facing a number of problems as two major manufacturing factories - Alghazi Tractors Ltd, DG Khan, and Millat Tractors, Shahdara, - were at the verge of collapse. If the tax stays, the factories manufacturing spare parts will be closed, adding to the miseries of the labourers and farmers because tractor has been used in the sector to reduce human labour.
