Answer
Waqar,

1. You may have to approach Geological Survey of Pakistan to get the 'Stratigraphic Code'.

2. The only measure I support and believe is to construct the buildings that could withstand an earthquake of at least 5 magnitude on the Richter Scale. Because the earth quakes are inevitable, disasters are not! However, for the 'Earthquake Code' you may approach the local Meteorological Department, or search the Internet.
