Javed Afridi Respond over FBR Investigation Against MG Motors

Morris Garages (MG) Pakistan is faced with problems of hundreds of millions of rupees in damage last week from the loss of seven new SUVs in a car accident near Daulatpur, Sindh.

The latest news reported in a story published on Sunday that the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) opened an investigation into MG Pakistan because the HS SUV was allegedly under-invoiced for its customs value.

Javed Afridi, a key MG Pakistan stakeholder, immediately used his social media to clarify the matter. His tweet read:

“For decades, Pakistani automobile consumers have been exploited by cartels that cornered them with low quality, boring models at exorbitant prices. Plus, buyers had to pay billions of rupees to get delivery of the very vehicles the price of which they had already paid. As new entrants bring in exciting new models at far lower prices, instead of competition, we expect maligning campaigns and baseless rumors. While we know that competition is an unfamiliar phenomenon in Pakistan’s automobile industry, we invite everyone to join in a fair competition to serve Pakistani consumers with a bigger and better variety of vehicles at lower prices.”

Without naming any names, Afridi has pointed out that the popular stories are planned propaganda against the new automakers introducing better products at lower prices.

Various mainstream media outlets also reported that MG Pakistan officials had stated that the company had not received any notice of investigation by the FBR and that it would send legal notices to the parties involved in the propaganda.

Javed Afridi is one of the most influential business people in Pakistan who has been quite active transforming the local automotive sector. He is also a big proponent of the normalization of electric vehicles in Pakistan and plans to roll out an EV charging system across the country as well.

He has claimed in his social media reports that such stories are “unfounded rumors” and that he will “fight this mafia” to bring better quality, cheaper products to Pakistan.

گذشتہ ہفتے سندھ کے شہر دولت پور کے قریب کار کیریئر حادثے میں اپنی سات نئی ایس یو وی کے نقصان کی وجہ سے مورس گیراج (ایم جی) پاکستان کے لئے لاکھوں روپے کا نقصان ہوا ہے۔

تازہ ترین خبروں میں ، اتوار کو شائع ہونے والی ایک کہانی میں یہ دعوی کیا گیا ہے کہ فیڈرل بورڈ آف ریونیو (ایف بی آر) نے ایم ایس پاکستان کے خلاف ایچ ایس ایس یو وی کی کسٹم ویلیو کو کم رسید کرنے کے الزام میں تحقیقات کا آغاز کیا تھا۔

نام بتائے بغیر ، آفریدی نے اشارہ کیا ہے کہ کہانیاں گردش کی جارہی ہیں وہ نئے کار ساز کمپنیوں کے خلاف پروپیگنڈہ کی منصوبہ بندی کر رہی ہیں جو سستی قیمتوں پر بہتر مصنوعات متعارف کروا رہی ہیں۔

مرکزی دھارے کے مختلف ذرائع ابلاغ نے یہ بھی اطلاع دی ہے کہ ایم جی پاکستان کے عہدیداروں نے بتایا ہے کہ ایف بی آر کی جانب سے کمپنی کو تحقیقات کے لئے نوٹس جاری نہیں کیا گیا ہے اور وہ اس کے خلاف پروپیگنڈے میں شامل فریقین کو قانونی نوٹس بھیجے گی۔
