As a result, the offices of MS Homes, Jinnah Block, Haider Block, Shadab Town, Dubai Gardens, Johar Town and other housing schemes were sealed off, while Rs 2 million from Zaheer City Housing Scheme, Rs 0.8 million from Bismillah Block and Rs 1.5 million from Zaka Restaurant were recovered in pending dues.
