  • Yeh pagal k bache Brand and the Model wise tax laga rahe hain. Aise to kabhi sai kaam nai hosakta…. Agar thora sa bhi koi parha likha aadmi hota to Smartphone ki price wise reasonable taxes lagate.
    btw every1 who is asking for the list, uska link shared hai in article end.

  • I still have a hard time believing they are collecting taxes on phones amounting up to 40k PKR. This is insane! Why not go for more rational means to collect tax. This is hurting the customer and the market both.

  • I would request everyone to upload complaint against this tax on citizen portal for suggest the govt to reduce it to max 10000/- on the most expensive phone and all others below this amount
