Mr. Bilal was commenting on the directive of SBP issued asking banks to submit R&D claims till June 25th 2008, He further said that the directive itself is contrary to the said SRO which has intimated the date for R&D claims for shipments till 30th June 2008, as such fixing the date of 25th June is arbitrary decision of State Bank and majority of exporters will be deprived from availing the support facility of R&D.
