KARACHI, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 21st Sep, 2021 ) :Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) is now moving towards reforms and it is putting records of Estate, Land and other departments online to bring transparency as well as to improve the performance of the institution.
"Instead of crying out for powers and authority, I will point out that the real issue is intention. No institution can function without financial stability," said Administrator Karachi Barrister Murtaza Wahab.
He said this while addressing a press conference at the KMC headquarters here on Tuesday, said a spokesperson of the KMC.
Metropolitan Commissioner KMC Afzal Zaidi and other officials were also present on the occasion.

Murtaza Wahab said that he wanted to do something for this city as per his mandate.

In the first three months of the current financial year alone, more than Rs 45 million have been received by eliminating the mafia," he added.
