FAISALABAD: Abdul Razzaq Dawood, adviser to the Prime Minister on Commerce, Textiles and Investment, has assured that for immediate payment of refunds, DLTL refunds will also be transferred to auto system like customs rebate while new textile policy will be released by next month. Addressing the representatives of textile associations across the country during the Zoom Conference today, he said that the DLTL scheme for the textile sector would be continued so that the export target for the next financial year could be achieved. Responding to a question on refunds, he said that the automation system was being seriously implemented which would not only ensure prompt payment of refunds but also prevent possible corruption.
