Building by-laws being violated in city areas
RAWALPINDI—Contrary to policy of the Punjab government, violation of building bylaws is being committed in different localities of the city especially in Satellite Town apparently in connivance with the Town Municipal officials and building inspectors.
Illegal constructions of four, five and seven marla houses are rampant on two, four and six kanal plots, meant for single unit construction, in blocks A,B,C,D and E, which is tantamount to sheer violation of the building bylaws.
Adeel Mir, a resident of E-Block, said the houses are being built without seeking approval of maps from the authorities concerned and now they are running into hundreds.
Another resident, Amjad Abbasi demanded operation against the illegal constructions besides initiating stern action against the corrupt elements.
When contacted, official sources in the Rawal Town Municipal Administration said that legal action would be taken against the building bylaws violators as well as the staff found involved in corrupt practices.—APP
