Islamabad: The Chief Justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar on Thursday ordered the Capital Development Authority (CDA) to conduct a survey again in farm houses to decide about the verandas and bring a report from director building control.
While hearing a case relating to excessive constructions at the orchard farms in the area of federal capital, Mian Saqib Nisar proposed fine instead of bulldozing the illegal building.
He was of the view that demolition process will require man power and machinery on the government end and the loss of the people will be another topic, so its better if we ask them to pay fine.
Director building control authority informed the court that around Rs 1800 million is likely to be recovered in the form of penalties from the violators.
CDA’s counsel while submitting the report on the agro farms said that apex court around 117 farm owners have made construction beyond the limit which is defined to be 12,500 sq ft of covered area.
While respondin to one of the questions pertaining to the encroachments alongside Korangi river, former additional attorney general Nayyer Rizvi informed the court that a deadline has been given to them on Dec 20.
The apex court dismissed the hearing and the next hearing is likely today(Friday).
