QUETTA:

The commercial gate’s market of the Taftan border was closed on July 30, according to Customs House Superintendent.

Traders were also given the notice of closure which stirred a wave of concern among the business community.

The federal government, on the other hand, says that new trade points are being opened on Pak-Iran Border. Despite these claims, many feel that closing any sources of commerce of the people in the area will exacerbate poverty.

It was declared that measures are being taken to provide facilities for traders from Customs House.

In response to a question, DC Customs Mustafa Zameer said that whatever concerns or difficulties are in the market, they must be shared with us, and they will be resolved.

Due to the fencing on the Iran border, non-traditional routes have already been closed, and shutting down legal routes will only add to the woes of the business community.

Locals say that the federal government will increase unemployment and the speed of business will also slow down. Public circles have demanded that the government revise the decision so that people's commerce and employment is not affected.
