A total of 17 sacrificial cattle markets are to be installed in Dhaka's two city corporation areas, sources said.
Of the two, Dhaka South City Corporation will arrange 10 and Dhaka North City Corporation will have seven sacrifificial animal markets on account Eid-ul-Azha.
When contacted, Farid Ahmed, Chief Executive Officer of Dhaka South City Corporation told The New Nation on Saturday, "We have started leasing of 10 cattle markets in our jurisdictions to traders through bids. The decision of first phase of the bidding is to be made on Monday after opening the tender box. If any cattle market is found lack of suitable bidders then the second and in case of necessity, the third phase tender schedules will be scrutinized."
Stipulated makeshift cattle markets of the DSCC are- Meradia Bazar and adjacent area, Donia College field and adjacent open space at Jatrabari, Dhupkhola East End Club adjacent open spaces, Dholaikhal Truck terminal adjacent open spaces, North Shajahanpur and Khilgaon Moitrisangha Club and its adjacent open spaces, Aftabnagar Eastern Housing E Block, Rahmatganj Club adjacent open space at Lalbagh and Golapbagh DSCC Market adjacent open spaces, Amulia Model Town open spaces, Institute of Leather Technology playground at Hazaribagh and Postagola cremation ground adjacent open spaces.

Meanwhile, several lease taking traders alleged that they failed to submit tender schedules for mismanagement of DNCC officials.
They said, DNCC announced its schedule on April 13. Its last date of collecting schedule was May8 and last date of submitting those was May9.
The traders said that as per the announcement, they have to collect and submit the tender schedules from DNCC's Zonal offices.
But officials of zonal offices had not received their tender schedule.
As a result many of them failed to submit tenders in time.
They requested the DNCC to give them another chance for submitting the tender schedules.
Meanwhile, Muzammel Hoque, Chief Estate Officer of DNCC could not be reached while trying several times for taking his comment in this regard.
Officials of both the city corporations are hopeful of earning huge revenues from the cattle markets.
In 2021, both the city corporations have earned Tk 220,533,452 from the lease of capital's 20 sacrificial animal markets.  
According to DNCC which also started a digital hat program, Tk 6 crore has been earned from the lease of its 10 cattle markets.
As of a DSCC press release, the income from 10 cattle markets has been Tk 16,0,533,452.
