According to the details, the planned ‘Sindh Committee for Regularisation of Construction Ordinance, 2021’ will be led by a former Supreme Court of Sindh High Court (SHC) Judge and will consist of a six-member commission. Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah will designate the other members of the commission.

The commission will be responsible for reviewing petitions and enforcing fines for multi-story high rises or housing developments built illegally or on encroached land. The panel will also be given the authority to legalise structures whose demolition is expected to worsen public tragedy and humanitarian calamity.

Murtaza Wahab, speaking to the press, said that the ordinance is the same one that Punjab used to legalise illegal housing complexes. However, until the subject is settled by the commission, a particular clause in the statute has been included to prevent building demolition. The ordinance, according to the administrator, will help to preserve people’ basic human rights.
