Nay Pyi Taw, 3 June — Tax exemption on the import of school buses can only be allowed by the approval of Union government, said Deputy Minister for Commerce Dr Pwint Hsan to Amyoth Hluttaw on Wednesday.
MP Dr Myat Nyana Soe of Yangon region constituency 4 urged the Ministry of Commerce for tax exemption on school bus and prohibition of private cars to send children to schools.
Dr Pwint Hsan said tax exemption scheme is a possibility with the approval of Union government under the maritime custom law on trades and the custom law, adding that the Custom Department will have to incur the 5 percent commerce tax and the 2 percent advance income tax for every unit of school buses.
He also said there is no plan to prohibit private cars for being used to send children to schools.
Dr Myat Nyana Soe, also the secretary of Amyotha Hluttaw Bill Committee, read out the report of Pyithu Hluttaw to Amyotha Hluttaw on the amendment bill on referendum law to modify the 2008 State constitution.
The report said temporary national registration card holders are ineligible for voting rights and that the approval of Pyithu Hluttaw should be confirmed.
U Sai Paung Nap of Shan state constituency 12 and Daw Khin Waing Kyi of Yangon region constituency 1 suggested the bill on conservation of ancient buildings.
Amyoth Hluttaw Bill Committee decided the suggestions of parliamentarians.—MNA
