Prices for Locally Assembled and Imported Smartphones Remain Unchanged

The federal government has announced the annual budget for the financial year 2023-2024.

There have been no changes in taxes for locally assembled and imported smartphones, meaning prices are going to remain unaffected for the time being.

However, multiple reports from sources had revealed that there have been discussions on multiple proposals to decrease the tax on smartphones, but there has been no change whatsoever. This means that the previously announced tax rates are still applicable today.

Here are the current rates.
