In a bid to contain the rising import bill to minimise pressure on the country’s dwindling forex reserves, the government slapped a ban on the import of nearly 800 items in 33 categories, including food products, on Thursday.

A four-page notification, SRO598 of 2022, was issued late at night by the commerce ministry to amend the import policy order. The banned items in the notification also included mobile phones, but soon after the announcement, the ministry revised its decision, opting instead to double the import duties and taxes levied, instead of outrightly banning their import, a senior customs official told Dawn.

The official further claimed that duties have also been increased on completely knocked-down (CKD) vehicles, and that both decisions are expected to be announced on Friday.
