DNCC Digital Cow Haat 2021
To facilitate cattle purchase ahead of the Eid-ul-Azha, Dhaka North City Corporation (DNCC) has inaugurated a digital cattle market for the second year running yesterday.
This year, the city corporation plans to sell one lakh cows through the platform.
Maintaining the guidelines of the Ministry of Commerce, the DNCC digital cattle market-2021 is being implemented by DNCC in association with E-commerce Association of Bangladesh (e-CAB), Bangladesh Dairy Farm Association, Business Promotion Council, A2i, and Ekshop.
To purchase a cow from the haat, one needs to enter the site www.digitalhaat.net.
“We sold 27,000 cows through the digital cattle market last year. This year, we have set the target at one lakh,” said DNCC mayor Md Atiqul Islam, who chaired the virtual programme.
If successful, the platform could prevent numerous people and cow traders from going to physical cattle markets, which will be crucial during this serious phase of the pandemic, the mayor said.
Atiqul said not only residents of DNCC, but anyone from any place will be able to purchase cows from the market, all without the need to pay “hasil”.
LGRD minister Md Tazul Islam inaugurated the cattle market as the chief guest and said everyone should be involved in purchasing their cattle online this year.
Lauding the initiative, the minister said, “We need to find a way to get those who don’t know how to use such online platforms.”
The minister said he has brought cattles from the market himself.
He suggested the authorities concerned at the union level to take initiatives to purchase and sell sacrificial animals through such online platforms due to the increasing trend of coronavirus in the country.
“As the coronavirus pandemic has turned worse this year, we have to be more careful of gatherings,” he said.
President of Bangladesh Dairy Farmers’ Association Md Imran Hossain said the market will protect the interest of both buyers and sellers.
He said there’s also the option to get the meat processed and delivered to the buyer’s doorstep.
Imran said they have capacity to provide slaughtering service for up to 500 cows and deliver up to 1,000 based on the demand.
President of e-CAB Shomi Kaiser said last year, 60 merchants including 45 members of e-CAB had participated in the initiative. While this year, more than 100 merchants from both e-CAB and Dairy Farm Association will take part in the market.
