Additional toll collection in Domar upazila haats rampant

With nobody monitoring different haats and bazars under Domar upazila, additional toll collection is going on at these places. No rule is being followed in these haats including Bosoniar Haat in.

Although it is mandatory to hang a board mentioning the prices of different commodities outside these haats, this is not being followed at all. The fixed toll for a cow and goat is Tk. 210  and Tk. 60 respectively. But Tk. 420 and Tk. 150  are now being taken against each cow and goat respectively. The toll for one maund of pepper is Tk. 9, but Tk. 40 is being taken against this amount of pepper.  Golam Kuddus, a social worker of Domar, told this correspondent that no rule is being followed in these haats

When contacted, some of the toll collectors, identified as Boishak , Soyeb , Rejoan , Khalekh , Zia  and  Liton,  said they are only following the directive of the leaseholder.  

The leaseholder, Md Enamul Habib Enam, however, turned off his mobile phone after he was asked about the topic.

Domar upazila nirbahi officer Umme Fatima said necessary steps will be taken in this regard after investigation.
