In Rawalpindi, both shopkeepers and customers are in dire straits these days due to a severe shortage of used car parts, commonly known as cable goods.
Mathu Khan, a popular market for cable goods, is also becoming desolate. Vendors say that cable goods are not available and the prices of what they are getting are very high due to which customers are also avoiding shopping.
The shopkeepers of Kabli Bazaar, which has more than 200 shops, say that the demand is high and the supply is almost non-existent, so the business seems to be stalling.

Traders in Ahata Mathu Khan say heavy duties on containers from Afghanistan are also a major reason for shortages and rising prices.
