Lahore: The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has announced its decision to regularise over 100 unauthorised housing projects under a new amnesty scheme, according to a news source published on January 22.
As per the details revealed, the authority has gained approval for this amnesty scheme planned for the Lahore Division from Judicial Commission on Water and Environment Chairman Justice (retired) Ali Akbar Qureshi.
The LDA scheme will enable illegal housing projects to pay regularization fee and fine imposed against building bylaw violations.
