SHC Orders SBCA to Demolish a 5-Storey Illegal Building in Karachi

The Sindh High Court has issued a show-cause notice to the Director General Sindh Building Control Authority (SBCA) for non-compliance with the court orders in an illegal construction case.

According to the details, the SHC had earlier issued directives to demolish a 5-storey building in Liaqatabad. However, the department has failed to act upon the court orders.

The SHC has also asked the SBCA to provide the details of the officials who allowed the illegal construction so that disciplinary action could be taken against them.

Furthermore, the SHC has ordered the SBCA Chief to submit an explanation and compliance reports after demolishing the building.

    آج تک بحریہ ٹاؤن میں
    200 گز کا آٹھ منزلہ کمرشل ایس بی سی اے کیوں نہیں توڑا کہ کراچی کے مختلف علاقوں میں دو سو گز پر پر بننے والے ہر تیسری منزل کو توڑ دیتے ہیں ایک شہر میں دو قانون کیوں ہیں
    ہمارا سوال اس ملک کے جرنیلوں سے اور جیج سے ہے کہ کب تک یہ زیادتی کریں گے کراچی والوں کے ساتھ۔

  18. We want to know how overseas and foreigners can protect their properties in Pakistan? Frog files are very common in Pakistan. Half life we spend abroad to buy a property in Pakistan.
