Karachi Water Sewerage Board takes action against five defaulting plazas
Karachi, August 01 2013 (PPI-OT): On the directives of Managing Director Karachi Water and Sewerage Board Misbahuddin Farid Special KW and SB Team working under the supervision of DMD Revenue disconnected water and sewerage lines of 5 plazas. Motors of these plazas, who were defaulter of millions, were confiscated.
KW and SB team is conducting operation against Builders and Plazas who have not taken approval of their water and sewerage connections or have failed to pay their bills. Builders have made it a practise not to take approval of water and sewerage lines before constructing multi-storey plazas and buildings. Whereas, KW and SB has been contacting builders and plazas for a long time in order to motivate them to pay their bills and acquire approval of connections but to no avail.
Due to these practises KW and SB is suffering from heavy losses in revenue. During the operation KW and SB Default Revenue Generation Cell disconnected water and Sewerage lines of Metro Residency CL-2B Civil Line, Safron CL-82B-1 Civil Line, Metro Sweet Apartments CI-4B Civil Line, Paradise Avenue, Safron Heights FT-07/2 Civil Lines and confiscated their motors as well. However, owners and builders of these plazas have been given a chance to regularize their connections and pay their outstanding dues in order to restore their connection.
Later on, MD KW and SB has requested citizens booking flats, houses and bungalows in new projects to make sure that the builder has acquired necessary approvals from KW and SB before booking their property. This would avoid any troubles for them since KW and SB would be taking action against all such builders and developers who are working without approvals.
He said that KW and SB is a public service institution and citizens must understand their duty towards the betterment of the city. He said that KW and SB provides citizens with facilities, which is only possible if citizens also cooperate with KW and SB and pay their bills on time.
