Srinagar, Nov 11: The government has decided to ban sale of sheep and goats for ‘Qurbani’ purposes on the roadsides in city.
The decision in this regard was taken at a meeting chaired by divisional commissioner Dr Asgar H Samoon here on Wednesday.
An official statement said that at the meeting it was decided that nobody would be allowed to conduct sales of sheep and goats for ‘Qurbani’ purposes on the road sides.
“If anybody found guilty, he would be dealt with under law,” the statement added.
The meeting decided that 10 sale centres (Mandis) of sheep and goats would be setup at Eid Gah, Soura near ration depot, Nowhatta Chowk, Higher Secondary School near Baghi Ali Mardan Khan, Rainawari ground near Zindshah Masjid, Madanpora Chatabal, Jawahir Nagar near receiving station, Shali store, Shaheed Gunj, Tengpora Bye-Pass, Barzulla near B&J Hospital.
The rate for live sheep and goat for ‘Qurbani’ has been fixed at Rs. 100 and Rs. 95 respectively. Similarly, poultry birds would be sold at Rs 80 per kg.
The price lists for the purpose would be displayed at all the 10 mandis.
Impressing upon all the concerned divisional level officers to ensure that the people do not confront any problem on the eve of Eid-ul-Azha, Dr Samoon said the foodgrains and other essentials should be stocked at all the ration depots across the valley besides ensuring the availability of sheep for ‘Qurbani’ purposes.
