In compliance with the orders of the Supreme Court of Pakistan, The Karachi administration has got the Nasla Tower vacated and the final preparations are underway for the demolition of the Illegally Constructed Nasla Tower Karachi. The apex court had ordered the property owner to pay the compensation amount to the residents of the tower and the Karachi administration had to implement the orders but until now no advancement has been made by the owners to obey the court's order.
Keeping in view the woes and worries of the residents the MQM has filed a petition in the Sindh High court whereby requesting the court to ensure that the Sindh government pays the compensation to the Affectees Of The Nasla tower. The MQM believes that since the construction work was completed under the nose of the government and that the approval of the government agencies is also present so the government should compensate, MQM-P deputy convener and Sindh Assembly parliamentary party leader Kunwar Naveed Jamil while talking to media outside the court said, “The reason is that there are many similar buildings, such as the Makkah Tower, for which the Sindh government’s institutions had issued NOCs (no-objection certificates)
He further added that the government agencies received million of rupees and issued NOC. The residents paid a heavy amount for purchase and then for amenities but all was ruined, “ And after they have bought such expensive property, the courts notice that it is all illegal, and they lose all their life savings,” He also said that the builders should also play their part by providing the flats to the residents when they are rebuilt.
Earlier last month the Supreme Court of Pakistan Karachi Registry bench headed by the Chief Justice of Pakistan, Justice Gulzar Ahmed had ordered the Karachi administration to Demolition Of the Nasla Tower Karachi that was illegally built on Shara e Faisal through a controlled implosion within a week. The court had ordered the owners to pay the compensation amount to the residents. The court also ordered the commissioner was ordered to submit the compliance report within a week.
