June 12. Biratnagar, The Biratnagar Sub-metropolis has initiated action against 11 persons violating the building code while constructing their houses.
The action was initiated after they were found neglecting the directive issued by the government since the April 25 earthquake to currently stop issuing permission for building news houses and adding floors to existing one, said Engineer at the Sub-metropolis Gopal Pokharel.
Under-construction houses in Ward no. 1, 2, 3, 13 and 18 have been stalled for the moment. The action was taken after the irregularity was found during the monitoring and also on the basis of complaints filed by neighbours, added Pokharel.
