Our City Faisalabad

 

FaisalababThe city of Lyallpur came into being in 1880.The city which now well known as a Manchester of Pakistan for its industrial activity, was nothing but desolate tract of land 100 years of age. Lyallpur Changed into Faisalabad: In 1977, the name of the city was changed to Faisalabad, after the name of the late king of Saudi Arabia, Shah Faisal-bin-Abdul Aziz. In 1985, the city was upgraded as a division with the districts of Faisalabad, Jhang and Toba-Tek Singh.

 

Climate: The climate of Faisalabad is extreme with very little rainfall. the maximum temp in summer rises up to 48 o C and minimum temperature in winter goes down to 04 o C. the present average rainfall is 40 mm which is more then twice the average rainfall prevalent 40 years ago.

 

Literacy Rate: literacy rate is 40 % which is much less than the neighboring countries of Asia like Sri Lanka whose literacy rate is 100 %. Due to this illiteracy we are unable to control our economy properly.

 


Environmental Pollution: Faisalabad is a city of factories and mills. Due to non-planning of city, these mills and factories are not located in a separate territory, but are present among the residential areas. Industrial waste and industrial effluent create environmental pollution which needs immediate control.
