KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) directed on Wednesday the Karachi district registrar to ensure that the sub-registrar will not register any sale deed, lease deed or sub-lease deed in respect of the newly constructed premises in the city without production or presentation of the completion plans.

A two-judge bench, comprising justices Nadeem Akhtar and Faheem Siddiqui, passed this order while hearing a petition against a private builder.

The bench further directed the district registrar to ensure that these directives were displayed on the notices boards at prominent places in the offices of the sub-registrars throughout the city.

Meanwhile, the bench also issued bailable warrants in sum of Rs50,000 against the builder for refusing to accept the court’s notice.

The bench summoned the district registrar, Ghulam Abbas Naich, and two sub-registrars, Aftab Ahmed Kalohi and Ashfaque Hussain Shah, to personally appear on March 30.
