NHA starts operation against illegal sign boards

Abdul Khaliq Qureshi


National Highway Authority with the support of District Administration has started anti encroachment drive on main KKH from Muslim Abad to Salhad in connection of widening of KKH road and had bulldozed at least 15 chops and cabins with removal of hoardings and signboards.
However the owners of 15 shops Naveed and Tahir at Muslim Abad put resistance on the move and alleged that they were not served notice by either NHA or by the district administration and claimed that their shops are at least 20 feet away from main road and are being constructed on their private property and alleged they have been victimized.
The Hazara hoarding and billboard association officials who also dashed to the site said that are regularly paying taxes to the district council, cantonment board, TMA and also to NHA and case is also being filed in the High court for the setting of jurisdictions of the authorities as in most of the cases, they have been asked to pay double tax by two different departments and high court has summoned the all authorities to properly demarcate their areas before charging taxes.
