ISLAMABAD - The Ministry of Industries and Production would constitute a committee to review the Auto-Industry policy and recommendations of National Assemblys committee should be included into it. Main Manzoor Ahmad Wattoo, Federal Minister For Industries and Production stated this Thursday while briefing the media about the meeting of National Assembly Committee on Industries and Production. He said that the representatives of Auto-Industry briefed the members of committee about the high prices, quality, black marketing and low production of the vehicles as the committee members, public and media had reservations about the high prices of the cars in the country. The committee in the meeting discussed the performances of Auto sector and distribution of fertilisers through National Fertiliser Corporation, the minister said adding that there was consensus among the committee members that despite corolla XLI and GLI, other vehicles are not available in the market. We have asked the members of Auto Industry to reduce the prices of Suzuki cars and bring them at par wit Indian cars, as their prices are very low. We have also asked them to increase the production of locally made spare parts and to remove defects in the some vehicles as several complaints are lodged against the defects in different cars, he added. He also said that Pakistan Machine Tool Factory had agreed with the Ministry of Industries and Production to make new gearboxes that would decrease the prices of cars. He informed that committee has appreciated the performance of Tractor Industry as they are providing it at fewer prices compared to that of other countries. He informed that the tractor, which is available at Rs 4,69,000 in Pakistan, is at Rs 8,13,000 in India, which shows the difference between the prices. Talking about urea, the minister said that he had informed the committee that the demand of urea for kharif season was around 3 million tons while our local production is 25 million tons. So we have shortage of 0.5 million tons and this gap would be fulfilled by importing the urea, he added. The imported urea would be available on 31 July for the dealers and this would be distributed to 600 dealers through National Fertilizer Corporation, Wattoo said. The condition of purchasing DAP along with urea was abolished, he added. Responding to a question, the minister said that the prices of different cars had been reduced after abolishing 5pc Federal Excise Duty (FED) in federal budget on locally manufactured vehicles.
