    Sub: Illegal construction of 3rd floor on Plot No. B-155, Block 2, Gulshan-e-Iqbal Area, Karachi (Gulshan Town), Karachi.

    Sir, we have written several emails to, Director General SBCA DG Iftikhar Qaimkhani, Sindh Building Control Authority pointing him out about subject illegal construction but he did not bother to take any action. 3rd floor has been constructed despite the ban from SBCA which prohibits construction of 3rd floor in Gulshan Town, Karachi. The owner has also sold Five portions in the above mentioned premises in clear violation of SBCA rules and regulations.
    The owner or builder is an employee of SBCA that is why SBCA is closed their eyes and has taken no action against this illegal construction.

    This construction and portions will create sewerage, water problems as the area is already too congested. The place which is meant for one/two families will be occupied by 7/8 families.

    We request you to kindly take URGENT ACTION.
    Residents of neighbor hood
    B-121 to B-159 Block 2 Gulshan-e-Iqbal Karachi.

    I think by changing the position of Directors, Asst Directors, from Malir and Korangi ,to Saddar , the story of corruption does not end , these directors should be dissimissed and sacked. Every day on week ends you will find some illegal construction going. on , I quote ,I found a small old building hardly measuring 30 X25 feet was demolished , and now new building is being constructed.

    It is behind Adam Mansion, Mansfield Sreet, Near fleet club. Saddar Karachi. All the debris is put on the foot path on mansfield street, the concern Inspectors of SBCA come take the bribe and go away.

    I being the member of Citizens for Environment was contacted by the residents , of the area. I contacted SBCA on nos 99230329 Mr Nader was on line informed me to contact DG SBCA. I told him if Citizens have to inform such issues ,do we need all these inspectors and Directors ,paid by hard earn money of Tax payers.

    I hope some one will be serious with their jobs in SBCA and resolve such issues. Thank You
