Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has announced its intention to grant substitute plots to the people affected by built-up properties (BUP) - in accordance with an award notification issued in 2016 - in an attempt to expedite the development work in Sector C-15 – according to a news source.
As per the sources, the CDA officials have asked the land department to take control of the said locality in its bid to compensate the alotees through the provision of plots measuring 5 marlas.
To facilitate this measure, the former deputy commissioner recently created three categories of the built-up property awards. And the names present on lists A and B would be allotted plots following the completing of the documentation process.
In wake of this process, the land department will commence with its acquisition of the Sector C-15, to which regard the talks between the revenue department and the locals recently reached a mutually satisfactory conclusion.
In 2016, the BUP awards for the sector were announced with 504 people deemed eligible for their claims, of whom 167 were categorized on the ‘A’ list after providing all the requisite information, while 337 were listed as ‘B’. At the time, the assistant director technical and assistant director land submitted that no further house or structure was left to be demarcated. However, during the review more than 200 cases were added as eligible for BUP claims in the form of plot or cash compensation.
