Usually Erode Karungalpalayam weekly cattle market is held on Thursdays.
The cattle market is frequented by hundreds of traders from various districts across Tamil Nadu and from other states like Kerala, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Goa and Telangana.
In the daily market, up to Rs 3 crore worth cattle will be traded.
In this situation, the traders did not come due to the restrictions imposed due to the election last month. As a result, the cattle market business was severely affected.
Traders from other states are not coming as the corona infection is spreading fast in our state.
Thus business was affected.
So, the cattle market which was scheduled to be held Thursday has been abruptly canceled.
The traders have already been informed about this on behalf of the cattle market management.
Following this, the cattle market will function as usual on next week, officials said.
