Multan: The administration of the Defense Housing Authority (DHA) Multan has announced the resumption of the project’s construction activities from today (April 16) onwards – keeping in step with the government’s recent ‘select industries’ reopening’ notification issued to this effect, according to news sources.
The DHA Multan has notified that it will resume limited construction-related operations from 9 AM to 3 PM from today (Thursday).
Following the federal government’s announcement, the Government of Punjab announced a lockdown extension to April 25 and reopening of the ‘low-risk’ businesses including the construction sector – provided they operate under the provincial government-issued operating procedures (SOPs).
As per reports, this step has been initiated to facilitate the laborers and daily wagers in the country, hard-hid by the coronavirus pandemic. The businesses being opened are stand-alone shops that do not require supply chains like plumbers, carpenters, electricians, tailors, veterinary services, real estate, and property dealers.
