Karachi: In order to expedite anti encroachments campaign and to make it more effective two wings of Revenue Department have been established in City District Government Karachi while the Project Directorate Surjani was put under the control of Revenue Department.

The meeting was attended by EDO Revenue Ganhor Leghari, Addl. EDO Revenue Matanat Ali Khan, Qazi Jan Mohammad and district officers of defunct KDA, KMC Revenue Department.
It was decided on this occasion that Addl. EDO Revenue Matanat Ali Khan will monitor the anti encroachments campaign carried out on defunct KMA and KDA land while anti encroachments work on the land of board of revenue will be overseen by some other officer and both these officers will be answerable to EDO Revenue Ganhor Leghari.
DCO Karachi directed that measures should be taken for removal of encroachments established at the government land in the remits of district Karachi.
He urged all concerned departments of defunct KMC, KDA and other organization to work under a better coordination and make this campaign successful.
DCO Roshan Ali Shaikh also instructed departments of defunct KMC and KDA to launch the anti encroachments campaign preferably from the major roads and corridors of the city so that any hurdles in the smooth flow of traffic and illegal structures from foot paths could be removed.
He further advised the officers to keep an eye on the locations where encroachments had been removed and take even strict action if these places were again encroached upon. The meeting also decided that the anti encroachments squad will be reinforced with heavy police contingent, machinery and fire brigade.
