According to a CDA board member the hydrological survey would be conducted within a month. This announcement was preceded by the federal cabinet authorising the agency to enforce bylaws and conduct a hydrological survey in E-11 last month. The cost of the survey is to be borne by housing societies.
The CDA was jolted into action only after a woman and her son lost their lives during this year moonsoon rains that caused urban flood. A meeting by the CDA Chairman Amer Ali Ahmed is scheduled to take place on Monday to decide on a future plan of action.
The sector remained unregulated as it was exempted from land acquisition in 1968 by president Ayub Khan. The sector has seen the burgeoning of high-rise building. Additionally, a number of houses have been built in the course of natural stream obstructing them.
According to sources CDA chairman had directed the inquiry committee probing the E-11 case to complete the task at the earliest to initiate action against the guilty officials.
The new bylaws under which E-11 will be dealt will be decided by the civic agency.
