The encroachment problem in Karachi has reached alarming levels, with streets, sidewalks, and even public parks being occupied by illegal constructions. This not only hampers the free movement of pedestrians and vehicles but also obstructs emergency services, such as ambulances and fire trucks, from reaching their destinations in a timely manner.

The environmental impact of encroachment also cannot be overlooked. Trees are being felled and green spaces are disappearing at an alarming rate, leading to increased pollution. Strict enforcement of existing laws and regulations, coupled with awareness campaigns and community involvement, can help curb the spread of encroachment in Karachi.
