The Jakarta Council has said it will give a capital injection to city-owned slaughterhouse PD Dharma Jaya, which can only provide less than 1 percent of 500 tons of beef consumed in the city per day.

Dharma Jaya president director Johan Romadhon told the council during a meeting on Tuesday that the company could only distribute 10 tons per day or around 300 tons of beef per month.

The council's deputy speaker M. Taufik said the council would approve the grant proposal for the capital injection to the company, so it could supply 50 percent of the total beef needed in the city.

The company should calculate the amount of funds needed and propose a revision of the regulation on PD Dharma Jaya, Taufik said.

The regulation states that a capital injection given to the company should not exceed Rp 250 billion (US$16.8 million).

“Please calculate the capital injection you need and submit the draft of the revised regulation to us. If, for instance, you need Rp 1 trillion, we will push it so you can get the capital,” Taufik said on Tuesday as quoted by kompas.com. (cal)
