The Indo-Pak trade at the Attari border will be normal by Thursday as the district administration intervened to resolve the issue. Notably, the import from the Pakistan side has been effected and Indian godowns had piled up, as the truck unions of Amritsar and Attari were loggerheads.
Both wanted monopoly over lifting Pakistani goods from the border. This tussle had led to 'no lifting' situation and the import was from Pak had decreased drastically.
In the past two days only around twenty trucks had entered India whereas many were queued up across the border.
But with things getting serious, the administration intervened and a solution was reached.
In a press release, Amritsar Deputy Commissioner Rajat Aggarwal claimed that it was amicably decided that Attari union will pick up 85% goods coming from Pakistan and rest will be picked by the Amritsar transporters.
With the Indian godowns being piled up at the border, only 11 trucks came from across the border on Wednesday.
