These changes were adopted and the new facility was inaugurated under ‘Ease of Doing Business’ which aims to support the investors and builders in the construction business. It is expected that real estate sector will benefit from these changes.
A new facility is also opened in the ground floor of SBCA building. The 10,000 sq ft facility is part of World Bank’s Karachi Neighbourhood Improvement Project. In the air conditioned facility 12 desks will be available to support, guide and process the applications.
Currently Phase 1 of the initiative was launched under which houses of 399 sq ft, other constructions of 120 sq ft and warehouses of up to 1,111 sq ft will be processed. In the second phase the services will be expanded to facilitate the customers.
Later the same changes will be adopted in SBCA offices across the province such as in Hyderabad and Sukkur.
When fully functional it will become Pakistan’s most advanced and upgraded Building Control Authority.
The inaugration of SBCA Smart came months after Supreme Court lifted SBCA ban on high rise building construction in Karachi.
