History

The city’s foundations were laid in 1908, and it was named Campbellpur after Sir Campbell.

After independence

Although Pakistan had become independent from Britain in 1947 it wasn’t until 1978 that the name Attock was adopted for the city.

Attock’s first oil well was drilled in Khaur in 1915. It has an oil and gas field Dakhini near Jand. One-third of Pakistan’s oil is produced.

Online petition

Keep Our City Clean!

Respected Sir/Madam,

The residential streets of Attock City are riddled with litter, house waste and at this time of year, leaves (which hide much of the litter and house waste). Attock Municipal Committee claims to clean streets ‘regularly’, but residents see little evidence of this. We, the residents of Attock City, demand a commitment to a fixed frequency of street cleaning i.e. daily or fortnightly rather than relying on residents reporting isolated cases of littering before actioning.

This petition will be delivered to:

  • Attock Municipal Committee
  • Chairman District Council
  • DPO Attock
  • Department of Health

Sincerely,

Share this with your friends:
