Federal govt decides to preserve Shalimar Bagh, tombs of Noor Jehan & Asif Jah
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – The federal government has decided to preserve Shalimar Bagh and tombs of Noor Jehan and Asif Jah.
Sources said that the government has approved the import of red clay from India.
The Pakistani contractor engaged in decoration of three places will import stone from India. In total, 4,983 cubic feet red stone will be imported from India.
In the Mughal era, red stone from Rajasthan was used in the buildings of Lahore. These buildings were badly affected due to unavailability of red stone. The stone used in these buildings is only available in Rajasthan.
On the other hand, the government has imposed new duty and taxes on imported vehicles.
