Sales of sacrificial animals begin tomorrow at 22 cattle markets in capital

DHAKA, June 12, 2024 (BSS) - Sales of sacrificial animals at 22 cattle
markets including two permanent haats in the capital will start tomorrow,
five days before the second largest religious festival of the Muslim
community, said officials concerned.

According to the two city corporations, 9 temporary haats have been set up
apart from Gabtali permanent haat in Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) area
and 11 temporary haats have been set up apart from Sarulia permanent cattle
haat in Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) area. However, due to court's
directive, cattle market will not be set up in Aftabnagar this year.

DNCC's Public Relations Department Information Officer Peal Hasan told BSS
that 10 haats including one permanent haat will be set up in the capital's
DNCC area. This time, the cattle markets will remain open for 5 days from
June 13 until the morning of Eid day, he said adding all arrangements have
been made for the safe and comfortable trading of sacrificial animals.

Peal Hasan said that buyers can purchase cattle through online banking even
without bringing any cash in the market. Anyone can open an instant bank
account under the overall supervision of Bangladesh Bank and make money
transactions, he said adding for this reason there will be numerous bank
booths in the market area.

Apart from this, he said, arrangement has been made for ablution and prayers
for the buyers at the markets. In order to maintain discipline at haats, the
lease holders of haats have been warned that if any seller sets up a haat on
the street, the security deposit of the lease holder will be forfeited. He
said law enforcement agencies will be at markets constantly to provide
overall security of the buyers and sellers.

The temporary haats in the DNCC area will be set up at an open space adjacent
to Dhaka Polytechnic Institute, Kanchkura Beparipara Rahman Nagar residential
project site in Ward No. 44, Mostul Check Post in Khilkhet under Ward Number
43, an open space adjacent to Sutivola Canal at Vatara, Kaola Shialdanga in
Sectors 16 and 18 at Uttara, Boubazar area, Mirpur Section-06 (Eastern
Housing open space) and Mohammadpur Bosila 40 feet road side.   

Public Relations Officer of Dhaka South City Corporation Abu Naser told BSS
that temporary animal markets will be set up at 11 places along with
permanent animal markets in Sarulia in the DSCC area from tomorrow.

One monitoring committee for each market has been formed for maintaining
overall discipline at market areas, he said.

Each committee will have one magistrate, he said adding if any irregularity
is found beyond the guidelines set by DSCC, the committee will immediately
take action.

Apart from, the central control room, there will be one control room in each
haat, said Abu Naser. On the other hand, under the supervision of Bangladesh
Bank, buyers and sellers can transact money through instant banking without
cash transactions, the public relations officer said adding there will be
adequate bank booths for this purpose at markets.

The temporary cattle markets will be set up at Jatrabari Dania College,
Dholaikhal Truck Terminal, Amulia Model Town, Meradia Bazar, a designated
place near Kamalapur Stadium, Rahmatganj Club, Shyampur Kadamtali Truck
Stand, North Shahjahanpur Khilgaon Railgate Bazar, Institute of Leather
Engineering and Technology at Hazaribag, Postogola open field and near Bishwa
