Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) on Friday (January 11) notified the cancellation of all earmarked numbers of plots; stating that going forward it will not issue plot allotment letters against acquired land or built-up property without balloting, a news source reported.
According to the details revealed, CDA Member Estate Naveed Ilahi issued the directives wherein he prohibited the officials concerned from allotting plots to land owners, who had provided their land to the civic agency, without balloting.
