Karachi, February 25, 2013 (PPI-OT): During a grand operation against defaulters in Cattle Colony Landhi, Karachi Water and Sewerage Board (KW and SB) disconnected water connections of 65 Cattle Farms (Bara) and confiscated 70 motors. The operation against defaulters in Cattle Colony would continue till 1st February with the help of area police and local administration.
In the first phase of revenue recovery strategic actions KW and SB commenced an operation against 1100 Cattle Farms (bara) in Cattle Colony with the help of D.I.G Aleem Jafri, S.H.O Sukhan Sarfaraz Sanghi, police and local administration. Collectively these Cattle Farms are defaulters of more than 900 million rupees. This operation is carried out under the supervision of Deputy Managing Director KW and SB Waqar Hashmi and Director Billing KW and SB Faheem Siddiqui.
During this one week long operation water connections of more than one hundred defaulting Cattle Farms (Bara) would be disconnected daily. If these farms fail to pay the bill during the operation, defaulting farms would be sealed under revenue act.
M.D KW and SB had recently directed DMD (RRG) to conduct a thorough operation against the 1100 Cattle Farms (bara) a collective defaulter of more than 900 million. These farms have not only ignored all KW and SB notifications but are also not willing to pay the bills.
Furthermore, he said that the operation scheduled last time was delayed on the advice of Elected Representatives however, for the betterment of the system it is vital that we commence the operation against these Cattle Farms.
These Cattle Farms consume water in bulk quantities causing water shortage in adjoining areas therefore, the defaulting farms must be sealed, he added. Moreover, actions would be taken against owners of these farms under revenue act, directed M.D KW and SB.
Later on, M.D KW and SB Misbahuddin Farid went on a un-announced visit for the operation site with D.M.D Technical Services Iftikhar Ahmed.
