SHC directs removal of all billboards from public properties

  • The petitioner stated that there are many places in Karachi where billboards are still installed in violation of the Supreme Court order
Updated 01 Oct 2020

(Karachi) The Sindh High Court (SHC) has directed the authorities concerned to ensure implementation of the Supreme Court order regarding removal of all billboards and hoardings from public buildings and properties across the city.

The SHC bench issued the verdict while hearing a writ petition seeking the removal of billboards.

During proceedings, the petitioner stated before the court that there are many places where billboards are still installed in violation of the Supreme Court order and requested the court to order the authorities to remove them.

The court instructed the authorities to remove billboards from public properties as per the apex court’s directives and disposed of the petition. It also directed the cantonment boards and private firms to implement the SC order.

Earlier, the Supreme Court had ordered removal of all advertising billboards all over the city. An apex court bench, headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Gulzar Ahmed, had given the order while hearing a case pertaining to illegal installation of billboards on public and private properties as well as roads across the metropolis.
