Sacrificial animal sale begins in Dhaka cattle markets

The sale of sacrificial animals started in city's 20 cattle markets, including two permanent haats, as just five days have left for Eid-ul-Azha, the second largest religious festival of the Muslim Ummah, officials said.

Two city corporations' sources said eight temporary haats have been set up apart from Gabtali permanent haat in Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) area and 10 temporary haats apart from Sarulia permanent cattle haat in Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) area.
However, due to court's directive, the cattle market will not be placed at Aftabnagar this year.

This time, the cattle markets will remain open for 5 days until the morning of Eid day from June 13.

DNCC's Public Relations Department Information Officer Peal Hasan said the buyers can purchase the cattle even through online banking without bringing any cash in the market as anyone can open instant bank account under the overall supervision of Bangladesh Bank and make money transactions.
There are also be numerous bank booths for smooth transaction in the market areas, 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 have been set up at an open space adjacent to Dhaka Polytechnic Institute, Mostul Check Post in Khilkhet under Ward Number 43, an open space adjacent to Sutivola Canal at Vatara, open space beside Sectors 16 and 18 at Uttara, Boubazar area, Mirpur Section-06 (Eastern Housing open space), open space of Mohammadpur Bosila 40 feet road side, open space from Vatulia Saheb Ali Madrasha to Ranavola Sluice gate and open space of Jamun area at Dakkhin Khan.

DSCC Public Relations Officer Abu Naser said the temporary animal markets have been set up at 10 places along with the permanent one in Sarulia.

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

Each committee has 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 is one control room in each haat, said Naser.

On the other hand, under the supervision of Bangladesh Bank, buyers and sellers can transact money through instant banking without cash transactions, he said, adding there are also adequate bank booths at markets.

The temporary cattle markets have been set up at neighborhoods of Dania College at Jatrabari, open space of Dholaikhal Truck Terminal, area near Amulia Model Town, open space near Meradia Bazar, a designated place near Kamalapur Stadium, Rahmatganj Club area, open space near Khilgaon Rail Maittre Sangha Club gate Bazar, Institute of Leather Engineering and Technology area at Hazaribag, Postogola open field near crematory place and open place beside Little Friends Club near Bishwa Road.
