Karachi: The Sindh Government is seeking recommendations from all deputy commissioners in a bid to curb illegal allotment of state land, a news source reported.
The government has asked the deputy commissioners to submit their lists of recommendations by January 20. The Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE) has also initiated an inquiry into the matter.
Preliminary investigations revealed that huge chunks of land had been allotted illegally in areas such as Sukkur, Khairpur, Benazirabad, and Tanduwala Yar. The land was allotted under State Land Grant Policy and HARP Lease Policy.
