CDA seals two illegal under-construction buildings


ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) sealed two illegal under-construction buildings during the latest operation against unauthorised and illegal constructions in different areas of the federal capital on Tuesday.

The operation was conducted by the Building Control Section (BCS) which was assisted by the Enforcement Directorate and staff of other relevant formations.

During the operation, under-construction building on plot 11-A, Markaz F-10 was sealed due to illegal and unauthorised construction. It is pertinent to mention here that allotment of the plot was cancelled by the Authority on the violation of building parameters.

The allottee of the plot had not only constructed an additional storey but also illegally using the basement of the building for the commercial purpose instead of the parking area. The allottee was served notice ten days earlier to stop further construction, failing which action was taken and premises was sealed.

During another operation, an illegal roof-top construction on plot 2-A, sector G-6/1-1 (old Ambassador Hotel) was stopped and premises were partially sealed.
