Addressing the delegation, Khalid Chaudhry, Acting President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry lauded the approach of CDA for developing consensus with traders on advertisement board tax rate and trade license issue, which averted the threat of a confrontation between business community and the civic body.
He said a hotel in G-6 Markaz has been under construction for the last 30 years but due to excessive delay in its completion, traders and residents of the area are facing great problems as the construction company has closed the pedestrians track between G-6/1 and G-6/4 sectors.
Despite lodging many complaints with CDA, the problem has not been resolved as yet. He said constituting a task force by CDA would greatly help in addressing all issues of business community on priority.
Speaking at the occasion, Syed Adil Anis, President, Traders Welfare Association, Melody Market, Islamabad highlighted the various issues of his business area.
He said Melody market is one of the oldest markets of Islamabad and it needs urgent attention of CDA to improve its infrastructure & address issues.
He said there is no flowers market in Melody area and CDA should allow such market to cater to the demand of consumers. He called upon the CDA to restore the Civic Center status of Melody market and also allow the construction of a Masjid as due to its non-availability, people are facing problems in performing religious obligations.
