TMA demolishes illegally constructed plazas


Rawal Town Municipal Administration (TMA) has demolished four plazas that had been illegally constructed.
According to a TMA spokesman, the operation against illegal construction has been accelerated on the special instructions of the administrator and strict action is being taken against violators.
A special survey had identified several illegally constructed commercial buildings in the area.
A law enforcement team headed by Inspector Tariq Yousaf carried out raid and demolished illegal constructions in Satellite Town F-Block, Pindora and Saidpur Road.
Yousaf said revenue generation had increased considerably as citizens have begun submitting building plans to get formal approval for their buildings. A TMA officer said an increasing number of constructions without TMA’s prior approval had compelled the administration to take solid steps in this regard. He said that officials had been directed to improve their performance or face stern action. He added that officials with a bad reputation would not be tolerated.
Citizens should not violate rules, stern action would be taken against violators and no exceptions will be made for anyone, he added.
