According to the information available, SBCA DG Baloch has instructed officials to take severe action against builders who have unlawfully added floors and portions to their buildings. According to Sindh Building Ordinance 1979/82, Clause (1) 19, the construction and sale of commercial units on residential plots is prohibited, as stated by the director general.
It was warned that brokers, contractors, and purchasers who are found to be involved in illegal property transactions will face disciplinary action. According to the sources, many people have demolished their old, spacious homes in order to build structures with smaller footprints, which has burdened the city’s infrastructure and necessitated that the water, power, and sewage systems endure the additional weight.
