RAWALPINDI  - Cantonment Board Rawalpindi (CBR) has decided to launch crackdown against commercial activities particularly mushrooming godowns in its residential areas.

CBR Chief Executive Officer (CEO) has issued directives to the concerned department to hammer out strategy in this respect. No street or Mohalla in the jurisdiction of CBR is left immune to illegal commercial activities .

String of vehicular workshops are operating illegally in Gawalmandi and on the other hand godowns have been set up in the residential areas of Sadar.

Illegal commercial activities are continuing with impunity in all the lanes of the thickly populated localities of Tench Bhata, Peoples Colony, Dhok Syedan, Fazal Abad, Dhok Kashmirian, Misrial road, Chakra, Range road and other places.

Such activities are not only contaminating the environment but also depriving the CBR of million of rupees of levies.
