A total of 27 cattle markets, including two permanent ones, are expected to be set up by the two Dhaka city corporations in the capital ahead of Eid-ul-Azha, the second biggest religious festival of the Muslims.

Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) has decided to set up 12 markets and haats in local parlance, including a permanent one in Gabtoli while Dhaka South City Corporation (DSCC) 15 haats, including a permanent one in Sarulia.

DNCC’s Public Relations Officer (PRO) ASM Mamun said they have already invited tenders for the lease of 11 cattle markets.
