Karachi: A unit of the Sindh High Court (SHC), led by Justice Mohammad Ali Mazhar, has informed the Sindh Building Control Authority (SBCA) of the failure to submit the progress report and has given orders to SBCA Director-General Shamsuddin Soomro to submit the paper on a priority basis, according to a news report published on 15 January.
The report shall contain specifics of the changes to the building regulations relating to the issuance of no-objection certificates (NOCs) to high-rise structures in Karachi.
