KARACHI: The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) offices have on Sunday been notified to prevent wedding ceremonies on its lands after the top court had last week ordered the authority to halt running commercial activities on the land provided to it for aviation regulatory alone.
The CAA spokesperson said today that all relevant offices of the aviaiton authority have been notified that from this point forward there will be no weddings in the halls and marquees built on the CAA lands.
He said even the bookings carried out in the past will be considered cancelled henceforth and marquee owners shall be given back their security deposits.
All those who have booked the place for their ceremonies will be recompensed within 10 days starting now, the spokesperson confirmed.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday came down hard on the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for running wedding halls on its land.
Hearing a case about CAA lands at the apex court’s Karachi registry, a bench headed by Chief Justice Gulzar Ahmed directed the country’s aviation regulator to end all the commercial activities other than airport-related services on its premises.
