KARACHI: The Model Customs Collectorate of Appraisement-West has decided to give complete access of each goods declaration (GD) to the internal auditors and principal appraisers (PAs), Customs Today learnt.
According to details, Appraisement-West Collector Muhammad Saleem after discussions and feedback obtained during meetings with the PAs, assistant/deputy collectors and additional collectors has decided to provide a complete view of each GD to internal auditors and PAs.
In this regard, the following objectives have been kept in the front in order to facilitate the traders and importers.
The principal appraisers will daily monitor the assessment behaviour of their groups to see that the valuation ruling/internal assessment guidelines were applied properly; there were no distortions in data assessment; Green Channel clearance was reviewed regularly to stop its misuse and Transit Pass (TP) consignments were not showing abnormal behaviour.
According to the collector’s directives, each PA, AC/DC has to prepare and show his/her performance for July-Oct 2014 on these points. A point-wise output will also be required highlighting detections made, recoveries affected or any other tangible achievements on this count.
Sources informed Customs Today that Collector Muhammad Saleem would review the performance of his subordinates on 8 November in a meeting and afterward monthly performance of the officials/officers concerned would be reviewed in this regard by the Collector-MCC Appraisement (West).
The ADCs of the relevant groups would review the performance internally before the scheduled meeting on 8 November. They may work out their own monitoring mechanism that intended objectives are being met.
