ICCI seeks new rent control law for Islamabad traders

ISLAMABAD: A delegation of the Traders Welfare Association, F-6 Super Market, led by its President Shehzad Shabbir Abbasi visited the Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry and exchanged views on matters of mutual interest.

Addressing the delegation, ICCI President Ahmed Hassan Moughal noted that Finance Minister Asad Umar during his election campaign had assured the traders of Islamabad that if his party won the elections, he would try for promulgation of a new rent control act in Islamabad during the first 100 days of his government.

He urged that the finance minister to honour his commitment, as due to lack of rent laws, disputes and forced evictions of traders from shops were on the rise.

He said that F-6 Super Market was the face of Islamabad and needed urgent attention of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) for its development.

He said that due to its key location, foreign diplomats, foreign visitors and other dignitaries frequently visited the market for shopping, stressing upon the CDA to focus on resolving the key issues of the market, including provision of filtration plant, restoration of all street lights and redesigning of car parking for expansion to facilitate the business activities.

He assured that ICCI would fully cooperate with TWA Super Market in its endeavors to resolve major issues of the traders of the area.
