    To, Honorable Provincial Mohtasib-aala (OMBUDSMAN) Sindh, Provincial of Sindh Mohtasib Secretariat karachi. Subject: NON IMPLEMENTATION DECISION OF HONOURABLE (OMBUDSMAN) PROVINCIAL MOHTASIB OF SINDH KARACHI. Respected Sir, With profound respect, I humbly recall your kind attention towards it is submitted that, the honourabale Mohtasib- (ombudsman) of Sindh, kind decision passed by dated 17-12-2013 on my complaint no. POS/1221/2012/DG-I on the subjected above. Honourable Sir, you have very kindly directed the defending party for submission of compliance report within 45 days. But that the period of 45 days has been expired MDA has not been implemented direction of In this regard, and in the light of honourable Mohtasib- (ombudsman) of Sindh, decision, I humbly submit that till to-date nothing has been heard from the defending party for allotment of an alternative plot of same size in the New Malir Housing Scheme-I, Malir Development Authority, nor the deposited amount with the interest accrued thereon has been given to me. Honourable Sir, MDA did not implement the decision of honourabale Mohtasib- (ombudsman) of Sindh. (Decision dated 17-12-2013 on my complaint No. POS/1221/2012/DG-I,). And MDA no department /person are authorized to take on charge the MDA as faulty institution. Apprehension I frequently agitating this matter, but MDA office is not taking seriously or avoid to considering the matter to me and mental worries torture and inconvenience, I am and other allottees of said scheme, are bona-fide citizens of Pakistan, although almost 18 years have lapsed, but no significant development works has so for been carried out. Initially, the MDA constructed a few roads and gave an impression that large-scale development works were underway, but this was another effort to hoodwink people, to collect huge amounts of money from allottees of said scheme and accumulate bank interest. The peoples, who have been allotted the plots in the said scheme, are much nuisance and the MDA does not take any positive response for the shelter-less peoples who have paid the huge amount in installments. However, it is submitted that the MDA have also announced this scheme to be completed within five (5) years (60) month, MDA as clarified, it was mentioned in Clause No.6 of terms and conditions for allotment of plots, which is reproduced as follows:- “The period of completion and delivery of possession is expected to be (60) month from the date of confirmation of allotment provided that the installments are paid within time by the allottees.” (2) Who is responsible for the delay in completion of development work deliver the physical possession of said plots to allottees? Unfortunately, it is responsibility of MDA and not the shelterless allottees of said scheme, Malir Development Authority Sindh is responsible in all respect, according to the terms conditions, MDA office is to duty bond for completion of development works within the time and to deliver the physical possession of said plots to allottees of MDA Scheme-1. But Malir Development Authority Sindh have passed almost 18-years and failed to complete the said scheme, because it was plan to complete the said scheme within 60 months, and MDA did not collect the utility charges on actual basis according to the terms & conditions. Sir, the circumstance has been narrated above for your kind perusal and you will kindly judge the height of inefficiency of MDA Management. The said scheme is still incomplete after 18-years lapsed; MDA works not in progress and MDA using the delaying tactics for completion of the scheme and handing over the possession of plots to the allottees Sir, please note the height of inefficiency on the part of the MDA Management. Many times I approached MDA officers in this connection with my requests/appeal but MDA no positive response has been given to me. They are using unfair tactics. I reserve the rights being law abiding citizen of Pakistan. Please tell us to whom we should call for awarding justice to us. By this mala-fide act, I have suffered a lot, and I am claiming the market value of the plot surrendered as well damages, MDA is under obligation to pay market value of plots well amount of damages details is below:- MARKET VALUE OF ALLOTTED PLOT RS.50, 00,000/- MENTAL WORRIES TORTURE AND INCONVENIENCE RS.80,00,000/- Finally keeping in view my hardships and difficulties, mentally worries torture and inconvenience kindly redressed my grievances by virtue of issuing orders to and take legal action against the Malir Development Authority concerned and may kindly be directed to MDA Authority concerned for directives MDA failing to either MDA Scheme-1 refund the cost of plot with existing market value for which to pay above mentioned amount to me MDA have to bear all the expenditures etc. on priority basis. (3) In view of the above mentioned facts and honourabale Mohtasib- (ombudsman) of Sindh, decision, I again fervently request to your kind honour that suitable legal action be taken against the MDA defaulter department on account of contempt of honourable court ordinance 2003, in the light of honourabale Mohtasib- (ombudsman) of Sindh, decision It is respectfully prayed that my application / request directed to orders so that I may be to perform my duties without any worries, smoothly, I am faithful to your honor of justice for which I shall be highly obliged (obey) you ‘re honor of order’s. With best personal regards, Yours obediently, (Zulfiqar Ali Sarki) ------------------------------------------------ Zulfiqar Ali Sarki S/o Haji Ghulam Ali Sarki Plot No.A- 043, Sector-17, measuring 200 Square Yards, File No-28/96-A,(Booking No.52625), MDA.
