MUZAFFARABAD: Trade across the Line of Control (LoC) witnessed a huge rush as 59 truckloads of merchandise from Azad Jammu and Kashmir and 89 trucks from Indian-administered Kashmir crossed the LoC.

Trade Facilitation Officer (TFO) Basharat Iqbal at Chakothi while talking to The Express Tribune said that merchandise laden in 148 trucks were exchanged between the two parts of Kashmir this week.

“Nine trucks loaded with substandard red chilli were sent back to Indian-held Kashmir,” said Iqbal. Meanwhile, the consignments at the facilitation centre are checked in the open ground as there is no proper scanning system at the Chakothi terminal.

The traders demanded the Trade and Travel Authority (Tata) to provide shelter as checking in the open damages the items.
