Karachi: Of the total cost of Rs400 million only Rs100 million is available for the completion of the much-postponed Faizee Rahmeen Art Gallery under the Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) budget of 2012-2013 for the project.

The remaining finances will be arranged from other sources. According to KMC administrator, the five-floor art gallery will have a parking facility, dressing and workshop rooms for artists.
An art gallery, a cafeteria, a banquet hall and a conference room will also be set up on the ground floor. The project also encompasses a world-class auditorium of 1,800 seating capacity for theatre and live shows.
