KARACHI: The team of Directorate of Reforms and Automation will complete the ‘break-bulk cargo’ module for Afghan Transit Trade (ATT) pilot project by the end of current month, it has been learnt.
Sources privy to the development told Customs Today that work on break-bulk cargo module was almost completed and it would be inducted into the ATT pilot project by the end of January.
They informed that a meeting, held with Reforms and Automation Project Director Tanveer Ahmad in the chair, had decided to make the ATT pilot project operational in the next month.
They also pointed out that paucity of funds was one of the main impediments in up-gradation of modules in WeBOC as the FBR had established a new Directorate with the name of Directorate of Reforms and Automation in place of WeBOC but did not allocate finance to set up group offices in the Directorate at the 11th Floor of Customs House.
To a query, the sources claimed that the authorities concerned of the Directorate of Reforms and Automation had conveyed the problem to the FBR high-ups in writing time and again but to no avail.
