Functions

PMBMC is self-sustained, receives one time Grant-in-Aid for establishment/construction of Model Bazaars, allied facilities and for any other new initiative. Expenses like staff salaries, utility bills, operational expenses and routine repair/maintenance etc. are met from the savings of the Bazaar(s) and no funds demanded from Finance Department/Government for this purpose. These bazaars also provide recreational facilities for children at a very low cost ranging from Rs. 20-60. The profit obtained from profitable Bazaars is also used to finance the Bazars which are not sustainable. It is pertinent to mention here that these Bazaars are independent of the Bazaars operated and managed by the local governments such as Sunday, Friday and Ramzan Bazaars. In total at present 32 Bazaars are operational in different cities of Punjab such as Lahore (Township, Thokar Niaz Baig, Harbanspura, Sabzazaar, Raiwind, Mian Plaza-Johar Town, Sher Shah Colony, Chung, Wahdat Colony & China Scheme), Rawalpindi, Sargodha, Kasur, Bahawalpur, Sialkot, Sahiwal, Faisalabad (Jhang Road & Millat Road), T.T Singh, Gujranwala, Gujrat, Jampur, Bhera, D.G Khan, Layyah, Hafizabad & Jauharabad.
