Karachi Water and Sewerage Board seeks right to earn advertisement revenue

Karachi, July 25 2013 (PPI-OT): Managing Director Karachi Water and Sewerage Board Misbahuddin Farid has requested Government of Sindh, Secretary Local Government, Administrator Karachi Municipal Corporation and Commissioner Karachi Shoaib Ahmed Siddiqui to grant KW and SB the right and authority to issue permission to place Billboards, Sign Boards and Promotional Boards on KW and SB land. He said that KW and SB must be the authority to issue these permissions, for KW and SB lands, in a systematic manner and use the raised revenue for provision of better services.

He said that KMC issues permission for Billboards on different KW and SB lands, to be used for Filter Plants, Pumping Stations and other installations, without KW and SB consent. KMC receive all fees collected in this regard despite the fact that this income KW and SB must receive revenue generated from its lands.

Cantonment boards are also used to of the same practice. KW and SB the only public service institution providing potable water and sewerage facilities to millions of citizens in Karachi on very low rates finds itself under financial crises and it is our need to not only reconsider the water and sewerage tariff but increase the revenue through all rightful and possible means in order to ensure that KW and SB provides the citizens with excellent services.
