On the occasion of the Eid-ul-Azha, the Commerce Ministry has taken a comprehensive plan to monitor the sale of rawhides of sacrificial animals at fixed rates as well as collection, storage and preservation of the rawhides and salt supply for rawhides, said a handout.
The ministry’s central joint coordinating committee, central coordination and monitoring committee, control room, special monitoring teams for Dhaka and Natore, divisional and district-level monitoring teams comprising representatives from different departments and agencies under the ministry, and all the district-level monitoring committees comprising the officials of the Directorate of National Consumers' Right Protection will work to implement the plan.
A workshop in this regard was held on Saturday for the officials from the ministry, its different departments and agencies.
