Illegal residential buildings are being demolished in Karachi

Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC), district administration and Sindh Building Control Authority have started to demolish illegal buildings in Karachi after Rizvia building collapse. The demolition work has started and it will take a week to finish, according to the KMC senior officer. Any residential plot between 60 and 399 square yards with construction of more than two floors falls into the category of “illegal construction”.

In Malir, a five-storey illegal structure made on 80 square yards was demolished as it was built without an approved building plan. It was constructed just opposite the Malir deputy commissioner’s office.
