Setting Up of Unauthorised Cattle Markets Prohibited

25 August 2014

PAKISTAN - The Administrator of the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) Rauf Akhtar Farooqui on Friday imposed an immediate ban on the setting up of makeshift cattle markets and "Bakra-piris" anywhere in the city other than the designated places.

Mr Farooqui issued a directive to the senior director of Enterprise and Investment Promotion (KMC) that such makeshift cattle markets should not be allowed in the municipal limits of the city without obtaining prior permission.

The KMC administrator said that no makeshift cattle market could be set up at any place in the city other than the designated locations and if any person or group was found involved in establishing illegal cattle market they would have to face action under the anti-encroachment act.

He observed that the setting up of makeshift “Bakra-piris” and cattle markets in the inner city areas causes hurdles in the smooth flow of traffic and troubles for pedestrians, besides creating harmful and unhygienic conditions in such areas.

He also appealed the citizens to discourage setting up of such unauthorised cattle markets in their areas and refrain from buying sacrificial animals from these places.
