KARACHI: During a meeting on Wednesday, the commissioner of Karachi announced that all billboards across the city will be taken down within 24 hours.
The meeting was led by Commissioner Iftikhar Shalwani along with the members of the local government and local administrators.
Shalwani said that all the billboards that have surfaced in the city are illegal and have been installed without permission.
Last month, the Supreme Court had passed an order to remove billboard from all public properties across the country. The ban is also applicable in cantonment areas, government offices and housing socities.
The billboards, however, had surfaced back across the city. The commissioner ordered that all the billboards should be removed as soon as possible, otherwise strict actions will be taken against it.
