According to the notification, the committees will be convened by the assistant commissioner of the area and comprise of the zonal officer, member of the local trade union and deputy superintendent of police (DSP) of the region. The committees will be assisted by a system network analyst, a civil defence officer and staff of the Municipal Corporation.
The spokesperson of the DC office told Pakistan Today that all the committees would submit their reports on a daily basis while the resources to carry the inspections had already been provided to the committees.
