Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has notified the issuance of notices to nine unauthorised housing schemes this week, according to a news story published on April 17.
Under the instructions of CDA Chairman Amer Ali Ahmed, the civic authority has started a drive against illegal unauthorised housing schemes within its jurisdiction. In the last four days, nine residential schemes were served notices and the operators of these projects have been instructed to stop the construction work.
After the completion of the notice period, legal action will be launched against the housing societies from Monday. Reportedly, there are over 100 legal and illegal housing projects, most of which have violated the regulations and sold public utility land reserved for facilities like greenbelts, mosques, parks and schools. The authority is taking strict measures against the violating projects and has asked utility companies to not issue connections in the non-complying housing schemes.
