Dhaka, Bangladesh (BBN)– Dhaka City Corporation (DCC) will set up 13 makeshift cattle markets in the capital Dhaka ahead of Eid-ul-Azha festival, expected to be observed on November 7 depending on the sighting of the Moon.
The markets will open three days before the Eud-ul-Azha and will continue the Eid Day.
The Hasil (service tax) of the cattle markets has been fixed at five per cent of the cattle price. It means that customers would have to pay BDT 50 for every BDT1000, a DCC official said.
He said a number of vigilance and mobile teams would be seen in and around the 13 cattle markets so none can set up cattle markets on roads defying rules.
The venues where makeshift cattle would be set up are: Jhigatola-Hazaribag ground, Taltola (Khilgaon) bus stand, Agargaon (Adjacent to the LGED Bhaban), Dhupkhola playground, Rahmatganj playground, Banarupa Housing Project at Khilkhet, Uttar Shahjahanpur, Azampur (Uttara) Government Primary School playground, Purbachal, Balurmath (adjacent to Chitra cinema hall) and Banani- Khilkhet level crossing.
Besides, these makeshift ones, a permanent market will also be set up at Gabtoli.
