Islamabad: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) is all set to put an end to the irregular use of residential buildings for commercial purposes and strict action will be taken against those who do not adhere to the authority’s orders.
According to a news source, CDA spokesperson Rizwan Sajid said that violators will be given 10 days to vacate the residential areas and relocate their business activities elsewhere. If they fail to do so, they risk the imposition of fines, cancelation of the allotment of the property, and the sealing of premises.
The authority plans to treat all property violators equally, and no leniency will be shown towards influential violators, said Mr Sajid.
Using residential property for commercial purposes is against Islamabad Residential Sectors Zoning Regulations 2005 and the CDA Ordinance 1960.
