SBCA asked Moon Garden's residents to vacate the building
The Sindh Building Control Authority (SBCA) has issued notices to the residents of Moon Garden Building to vacate the building in seven days. They have been given a deadline of February 10 to vacate the building located in Gulshan-e-Iqbal.
According to the news sources, the Sindh Building Control Authority (SBCA) has asked the residents of Moon Garden building to vacate the building located in Gulshan-e-Iqbal by February 10. The notice issued on February 4 says that the tenants and occupants have been asked to vacate the building on orders of the Supreme Court. The apex court also warned the occupants of action if they fail to comply with the orders.
It was found in 2015 that one part of the Moon Garden Building was constructed illegally on the land of Pakistan Railways Employee’s Co-operative Housing Society (PRECHS). This was revealed after a case was filed against the building in the Sindh High Court. A survey by the building authority found out that the residential project was constructed in violation of the building plan and the owner didn’t even obtain any NOC for it.
The builder and residents moved the Supreme Court in 2015 asking for a stay order that was approved but withdrawn in 2019 after the builder failed to deposit PKR 100 million as surety for the residents. The building is said to be demolished and the land would be retrieved for PRECHS.
