Motor Vehicle Duty Concession


  1. The qualifying criteria should be based on levels of production/output instead of merely number of acres, colonies, etc. Accordingly, it was decided that annual gross return from the agricultural enterprises of the applicant should not be less than $250,000.00.

  2. To reduce abuse of the system, incentives should only be given as a reward for production. A mere statement of intention to produce is not sufficient.
