Multi-storey building on MM Alam Road violates bylaws

* LDA serves notice on owner

* Plaza sales executive says building does not violate bylaws

Staff Report

LAHORE: A multi-storey plaza on MM Alam Road, which is in final stage of construction, is in ‘sheer violation’ of building bylaws, a source told Daily Times.

Nazir Chauhan owns the commercial plaza, constructed on Plot 123-P, Gulberg II, near Mini Market roundabout.

The owner increased the covered area by illegally constructing a ‘shop’ measuring 24×18 feet on the second floor.

The Lahore Development Authority (LDA)’s monitoring team visited the site and issued a notice on the owner on March 3. In response to the notice, Chauhan submitted a revised construction plan on March 9. However, the LDA did not approve the plan after the owner failed to submit three important documents, including building regulation form-2, building regulation form-6 (also called structure stability certificate) and Rs 64,650 processing charges fee to the LDA.

An LDA official, on condition of anonymity, said the building was in violation, adding that construction of any building; especially a multi-storey building without prior approval of the authority, was a crime. He said under such circumstances heavy penalty could be imposed on the owner of the building. He said failure to submit the structure stability certificate on part of Chauhan was a “dangerous thing”.

Total area of the plot is two kanals, four marlas and 180 square feet, while the covered area of the building is 9,578sq ft (around two kanals). There is also a partially supported projection on the left side of the building, which could pose danger. Chauhan and his manager, Zubair, were not available for comment despite several attempts.

However, when contacted Moeez Ashraf, the plaza’s sales executive, said the building was not in violation of the building bylaws. He said further the plaza tenants would face no problem, as the issue (if any) was between the LDA and the plaza management. He said that all shops on the ground floor have been booked and shops on second floor were available, adding that the building management would set up its offices on the third floor. All the shops of the plaza were available for rent only, he said.
