Karachi: According to a survey done by the SBCA Technical Committee on Dangerous Buildings, there are about 550 unsafe buildings in Karachi and over 650 unsafe buildings in other districts of Sindh.
The residents of these buildings have reportedly already received notifications advising them to leave right away because the buildings run the risk of collapsing amid heavy rain.
According to Muhammad Yasin Shar Baloch, the director general of the Sindh Building Control Authority (SBCA), the Sindh government has established a rain-emergency centre in anticipation of possible building collapse occurrences during the monsoon rains in Karachi.
Technical staff will be on hand in three shifts during the rain emergency to handle any potential emergencies. Furthermore, the general public was urged by the SBCA DG to contact the SBCA’s Rain Emergency Centre in order to report any building mishaps or submit information about unsafe and deteriorating structures in highly populated regions.
A representative of the SBCA asserted that the organisation is committed to immediately responding to any allegations it receives and taking the required steps to reduce the risks brought on by unsafe structures.
