Banned outfits would not be allowed to collect hides of sacrificial animals on Eid-ul-Adha. The Home Department of Punjab Government has also banned the collection of the hides by NGOs without the approval of the competent authority.
According to a district administration spokesman, Deputy Commissioner Office Rawalpindi had announced July 10 as last date to submit applications for collecting hides of sacrificial animals.
The administration would not allow anyone to collect hides without permission of the authorities concerned.
The charity organizations were directed to submit applications to the office of Deputy Commissioner Rawalpindi for permission letter by July 10.
Any organization or person who would collect hides of the sacrificial animals without NoC would be treated as offense and strict action would be taken against them as per law.
At least 85 prescribed organizations and banned outfits were on the radar of the Punjab Home Department for hide collection ban. Some 11 sub-organizations have also been included in the proscribed list.
The home department had sent letters to all district commissioners, including Rawalipindi’s to strictly stop members of these banned outfits from collecting hides for raising funds.
