The activities of this digital haat will be conducted in collaboration with a2i and E-Commerce Association of Bangladesh (E-CAB). About 50 to 60 organisations of the association will sell, supply and slaughter animals on online purchase.
DNCC and E-CAB will implement DNCC Digital Haat in collaboration with ICT Division, Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock,
Bangladesh Dairy Farm Association, Ministry of Local Government, Ministry of Rural Development and Cooperatives and Divisional Commissioner's Office.
The market will be run by DNCC in collaboration with Access to Information (a2i) and E-CAB.
DNCC and E-Cab have taken the initiative to deliver the meat to the home by completing all the sacrificial process for the buyers of the sacrificial animal from the digital platform. However, in order to receive the services, the animal owners have to pay a certain amount of fee.
