KARACHI: For the sale, purchase, transfer and mutation of property, a dues clearance certificate will be required from the Karachi Water and Sewage Board (KWSB), which can be obtained from the board under the Sindh Registration Act, 2015.
According to a press statement issued from the KWSB, in order to save the board from bankruptcy, the board has to increase its revenue. For this purpose, the board's managing director, Misbahuddin Farid, has directed its officials to collect water board's fees from defaulters and for those defaulters who fail to clear the board's dues, their water and sewerage connections will be suspended. Unions of those flats and high-rise buildings whose occupants do not pay the KWSB's dues have to be taken on board and every consumer of the water board will have to come under its tax network.
Apart from the residential areas, Farid directed to send bills to the owners of hotels, restaurants and shopping malls, as they also use the utility service.
