Car companies Toyota and Suzuki will immediately stop taking new booking for non-filers. Dealership have been communicated and changes will be effect as soon as possible. As per new act “Any application for booking, registration or purchase of a new locally manufactured motor vehicle or for first registration of an imported vehicle shall not be accepted or processed by any vehicle registration authority of Excise and Taxation Department or a manufacturer of a motor vehicle respectively, unless the person is a filer”.
Pending Bookings Cases
Car companies have asked their dealers to individually contact non-filer customers whose orders are scheduled to get delivered in June 2018. Same goes for those who are pending balance payments and deliveries scheduled to be fulfilled after July 2018. The dealerships will contact each customer and ask them to change their status from None tax-filer to tax-filer.
The companies have also informed their respective partner banks to stop taking orders from non-filers. The auto companies have asked the government to reverse these changes, as they will lose significant sales, and will take this matter to the court because this change will also encourage even more illegal own-money practices
