The commissioner has issued the notification in exercise of powers conferred on him under Section 3 of The Sindh Essential Commodities Price Control and Prevention of Profiteering and Hoarding Act, 2005.

The sale and purchase of poultry, means, live chicken and meat and eggs on a wholesale basis will be done by any dealer or buyer or any other person by way of an open auction, and in such a manner as prescribed under the rules of market committee, within the limits of the New Sabzi Mandi on the Super Highway in the public interest.
