LAHORE - A Full Bench of the Supreme Court hearing the case of sky-rise buildings in the city Tuesday ordered the Punjab Government and Lahore Development Authority to submit building-wise report and recommendation about further line of action against 1,500 to 2,000 buildings built in violation of rules and regulations besides pinpointing those buildings the illegalities of which could be condoned and not condoned. A commission appointed by the court has submitted reports about these buildings. The Bench headed by Justice Khalilur Rehman Ramday during the proceedings said it was matter of concern that LDA is taking no action against illegal construction rather officials are reportedly demanding heavy bribe to pass the building plan. LDA legal advisor Salman Butt told the court that some 30 engineers have been appointed to check structures of buildings while legislation is also under process to stop the menace of constructing illegal buildings. The LDA official also told the court that commercialisation of buildings is banned for two years. He also said if a construction plan is not passed within 45 days, the builder could go on with construction. This revelation annoyed Justice Ramday who said, this rule would allow builders to play around the situation and construct as many storeys of building as they want, adding that the LDA should seriously make efforts to stop this practice. Justice Ramday, however, made it clear that the court is not against the construction of sky-rise buildings in the city but this should be done as per rules and regulations. We would not hesitate a minute to order demolition of a building as we had done in the past but the illegalities would not be tolerated at any cost, Justice Ramday continued. People in the walled city have constructed 10 storeys buildings on four Marla plots and no one had dared to stop them. Everyone is more interested in minting money , Justice Ramday remarked. The Bench also issued contempt notice to owner of Salar Tower after the LDAs counsel pointed out that a builder was imposed a fine of Rs. 50 million but the cheque of the same amount was dishonoured in the bank. Justice Sair Ali and Justice Jawwad S Khawaja were the other members on the Bench. The court now will take up the matter in the first week of October.
