The Supreme Court on Monday restricted the Punjab government from giving approvals to new housing societies.

While hearing the case of forensic audit of housing societies, Chief Justice Saqib Nisar remarked that the records of housing societies were set ablaze deliberately.

Barring the provincial government from approving further housing society projects, the top judge lamented “the areas of greenery have been transformed into housing societies,” does anyone consider environment sustainability while building such projects? he asked.
