First it was an appartment building in Civil lines then this 6 storey building used for office purpose I have seen this sort of message outside elevator.

At persons own risk!

What if the person is not educated like the masis, peons, or sweepers etc?

Is CDGK or anyone else responsible for these issues? Interestingly the building’s owner runs a construction company.

Numerous other defects in buildings like the absence of emergency exits, no fire safety etc are observed even in buildings with principles having their own offices in them.

    What nonsense. Is a lift something so small that the owner won’t notice it disappearing anywhere??

    He has put that disclaimer because he cannot fulfil his responsibility. Don’t you see?

    Thanks for pointing this out. Its one of the latest viruses taking over according to which ONE considers oneself absolved of all sins and responsibilities by putting up a disclaimer.

    Ironically the civil society doesn’t object. Started first by products, TV channels, even university admission booklets & company contracts everyone now who thinks there is any way he can be pointed out puts a disclaimer.

    When you don’t have consumer protection this is bound to happen that’s why organisations like Consumer Rights protection Pakistan shout.

    One day you will see a disclaimer like this
    Eat/drink this stuff at your own risk aisa na ho ki es mai zeher mila ho

    I won’t be stunned to see PCB putting up a disclaimer saying watch the match at your own risk. Our performance may be worse than you imagine

    Responsible don’t need these gimmicks

    Send this ‘joke’ to Readers Digest. You might just get 350 dollars for it.

    good lifts don’t allow the door to be opened unless lift arrives on that floor… but many cheap lifts just have a manual doors or sliding grill which can be life threatening in case the person falls down while the lift has not arrived on his floor… in any such case owner/builder of the apartments should be held responsible..

    Dear Unaize Jee,
    With all due respect, this is by no means ‘hilarious’. Next time, please think before you put a title.

    I am not sure why u ppl find this lift so hilarious or unusal, they have been around for ages. Like Doctor said this is only for lifts where you have manual doors.
