Cross-LoC trade resumes
Srinagar, Feb 25: Following assurances of the Minister of Industries and Commerce S S Salathia, the trade between two parts of Kashmir was resumed this week.
Custodian for the cross-LoC trade at Trade Facilitation Centre Salamabad, Muhammad Ashraf Wani told Greater Kashmir that the traders who were on strike for last two weeks had discussed their issues with the industries minister and urged him to remove impediments from the trade.
“The minister has assured them that the government will soon address their grievances and the traders are satisfied by his commitment,” he said.
Wani said consignments worth Rs 6 to 7 crore were exchanged between two parts of Kashmir on two days of the trade. Goods were exported in 80 trucks from the TFC Salamabad, whereas 74 truckloads were received from the Chakoti Trade Centre, he said.
“Trade was conducted on time and quite smoothly. Now more and more traders are coming into the trade,” he said.
Pertinently, the traders had been demanding amendment in the Standard Operating Producer (SOP), increase in the number of tradable items and revocation of ban on various items, including Pakistani moong (green gram), garlic, dates, raisins, ginger and some other items, which, according to them, fetched them a good market.
