SBCA has once again warned residents of all the unsafe declared buildings to vacate the buildings forthwith to save lives and properties loss as the possibilities of falling of buildings increase with the rains.

An affected building of Kharadar is also included in the list of the buildings declared dangerous. As a result of survey, technical committee of SBCA comprising adept constructors and experienced engineers has yet declared 288 buildings in the city to be dangerous due to their decayed foundation structure.

While, emergency has already been imposed in SBCA on the directive of acting director general SBCA due to the prediction of monsoon rains by meteorological department. The citizens could contact emergency number 021-99232354 in case of any building accident.
