Builders fail to persuade SBCA to lift high-rise ban

Talks between the Sindh Building Control Authority (SBCA) and the Association of Builders and Developers (ABAD) over the recently imposed ban on high-rise buildings in Karachi yielded no result on Tuesday, with the authority saying it had to comply with court orders.

Millions of people from all over Pakistan, including Karachi, will not able to get their flats completed due to the sudden ban imposed by the SBCA on high-rise buildings. Their dream of having their own flats will not be fulfilled despite making payments. They have no choice but approach court for justice.

It is maintained that the restriction was announced all of a sudden when no-objection certificates (NOCs) had not finally been approved for many people.

If a person has booked third and the fourth floor in a multi-storey residential building, but due to this ban, the construction of flats has stopped. If the buyer who has made all payments demands possession of his flat, the builder will not be able to do so.”

It seems that SBCA decision would cause a decrease in the government revenue and create a law and order problem.

ABAD had expressed serious reservations over the ban because “it has stopped future transactions and everything is at a standstill”.

ABAD demand the SBCA not to withdraw the NOCs that have already been issued, and if at all NOCs are issued ABAD should be taken into confidence.”
