    I'm sure this is also another illegal construction. why the UDA or CMC does not take proper action towards all these unauthorized construction? there are many houses in Colombo who do not even have a proper plan but have built several floors, what is the UDA and CMC officers doing about it? are they waiting till a building collapses to take action?
