Waste produced by Islamabad’s sabzi mandi will now be used to generate power for market

The plan was disclosed by AAG during Bani Gala encroachment hearing.



In an interesting development, the waste produced by sabzi mandi, wholesale vegetable and fruit market, will now be used to generate power for the market. The plan was disclosed by AAG (Additional Attorney General) as a bench comprising of two members heard a case about Bani Gala encroachments. The special bench comprised of Justice Umar Ata Bandial and Justice Ijaz Ul Ahsan.

During the hearing, CDA (Capital Development Authority) also submitted a revised master plan for federal capital Islamabad, along with reports about the encroachments in Bani Gala. IMC (Islamabad Metropolitan Corporation) also submitted a report on encroachment. Top court expressed its satisfaction and directed to take all necessary steps for implementation of the reports.

Justice Bandial said that the approval of Islamabad’s master plan from the federal cabinet is a positive development. He also suggested to raise awareness and sensitize the public on the subject of waste management and protocols constituted in the plan.

Sabzi Mandi to get its own Bigos plant:

Justice Ahsan also suggested that CDA should mobilize students along with electronic as well as social media to educate the public about waste management protocols. AAG also informed the court about the plan of bigos plant in Sabzi mandi. The plant will process 20 tonnes of solid organic waste every day and produce power for the market.

Justice Bandial asked that the tariffs of power should also be kept low for the market. If the plan is executed effectively and it proves to be successful, the model can be replicated and implemented all across the country.

The court was also informed about other projects. Regarding wetland projects, AAG told the court that two projects have already been completed while another one is in the process of completion.
