Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FCCI) President Dr Khurram Tariq has demanded Divisional Commissioner Shahid Niaz and Deputy Commissioner Imran Hamid Sheikh to give a final date for completion of the new master plan.

In a statement issued here on Saturday, he said the master plan was facing delay due to different reasons. An initial briefing on the proposed draft of the plan was given in the FCCI, but no progress had been witnessed to finalize its draft, it added.
