More than 200 multi-storied buildings in Karachi have reportedly been constructed using bad quality materials and poor planning.

KMC has submitted a report to the Sindh High Court on the incidents of fire in multi-storied buildings of Karachi.

The report highlights the lack of a fire fighting system, emergency exit and other necessary arrangements. It has also been stated that KMC’s suggestion was not taken into consideration while issuing NOC to buildings.


According to the KMC report, building inspections were conducted on I.I. Chundrigar Road, Khalid Bin Waleed Road, Shahrah e Faisal.

SBCA has issued completion certificates to these buildings, action is necessary against illegal constructions and NOC issuers, while anti-corruption has initiated action against involved SBCA officers and builders.
