KARACHI: Association of Builders and Developers of Pakistan (ABAD) and Military Lands and Cantonments (ML&C) Karachi region have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote construction industry. The MoU was signed by ABAD chairman Mohsin Sheikhani and ML&C Karachi Region director Adil Rafi Siddiqui at the Cantonment Board of Clifton's office.

DG ML&C Maj-Gen Syed Hasnat Amir said with the active participation and consultations of ABAD, unified building bylaws and one window operation have been unveiled, which would be effective from Aug 14.

He said ML&C Karachi Region has honored to be the first to unveil unified building bylaws in line with suggestions of ABAD and building bylaws of Sindh Building Control Authority (SBCA) and Lahore Development Authority (LDA).

He said the sole purpose of MoU with ABAD is to promote construction industry by facilitating builders and developers. Maj-Gen Hasnat said after beginning of one window operation, no government department would blackmail builders and developers.

ABAD chairman Mohsin Sheikhani said almost all countries are giving due attention to construction industry because this is the only industry which can generate thousands of jobs and immense growth to GDP as when the construction industry booms, more than 70 allied industries are also running in full swing.

He lamented that no attention has been given to construction industry in Pakistan since last 70 years and added that ABAD was demanding digitalization and one window operation for construction industry since many years.
