Adviser to the Prime Minister on Information Technology Sardar Latif Khosa has dispelled the impression that there is a ban on the import or sale of used computers.
The IT Adviser said access to information was a fundamental right of every human being. The government, he said, would make such decisions, which could benefit the people. Khosa added that the duty imposed on the import of new and used computers should be withdrawn so that people could afford them.
It merits mentioning here that computer manufacturers had lobbied to enable ban on sale of used computers in the country.
