Import of pre-2002 model vehicles bannedBy Zarghona Salehi Jan 1, 2012 - 18:01
KABUL (PAN): The Ministry of Finance on Sunday said it has imposed a ban on importation of vehicles made before the year 2002 to the country.
Traders should not try to import vehicles more than 10 years old because the Finance Ministry had stopped the process of customs duty on such vehicles, the ministry said in a statement.
The ban was imposed in light of a Cabinet decision, the Ministry of Public Health said in a separate statement.
Traffic department head, Brig. Gen. Nooruddin Hamdard, said the old model vehicles due to their low quality caused air pollution and traffic problems.
