Rawalpindi: The Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) on Wednesday completed its survey of plazas situated in the garrison city – a news source reported.
According to ACE’s report, at least 70% of these plazas were built illegally, and in connivance with the building inspectors. These constructions also lack parking spaces.
Moreover, the owners/developers have converted the areas designated for parking spaces into shops. These commercial outlets have either been sold or rented out.
ACE previously sought records of approved building plans and other relevant information from the Municipal Corporation (MC). However, the ACE officials were informed that no such documentation exists.
The department later constituted a three-member committee and appointed deputy director (technical wing) as its head. This body surveyed illegal plazas in the city.
Informed sources within ACE stated that the survey report will be forwarded to the director general. Further action will be taken in light of its findings.
