Sialkot Tannery Zone
In order to overcome the threat of environmental pollution being created by the scattered tanneries in and around Sialkot, the Chamber has initiated the project of Sialkot Tannery Zone. The Government has issued notification under Section 4 of land acquisition Act 1894 for acquisition of 384 Acres at Khambran Wala at Kuluwal Road for the establishment of Tannery Zone. For the completion of the Project in private sector, a non-profit organization by the name of The Sialkot Tannery Association (Guarantee) Ltd. has been formed. The Company invited applications from prospective buyers for submission of 25% share of the total cost of land. The amount has been transferred to the Local Government account under relevant Head for the acquisition of land. The development process is expected to start very soon. Fitted with a modern affluent treatment plant, all the tanneries are being asked to shift to this zone.
