Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has shut 22 structures in E-11 for violating building bylaws as a result of the recent flooding.

“We have shut 22 buildings following the latest flood,” a CDA officer stated on Tuesday. Buildings in housing societies and locations outside of societies, he claimed, were sealed.

According to the officer, notices have already been served on the owners of all structures, and they have been ordered to respond to different breaches.

Officials from the Building Control Directorate, he said, had been taking action against unlawful buildings with the help of the Islamabad police and the district administration.

By former president Ayub Khan’s directives, the E-11 sector has been exempted from land acquisition. However, because of its exempt status, the CDA was unable to fully execute its ordinances in this area, resulting in the mushrooming of structures. In this sector, there are now five housing societies operating, three of which are unlawful. In addition, there are around 70 unapproved high-rise buildings in this sector.
