8Karachi: The Malir Development Authority (MDA) has cancelled plot allotments to 3,000 defaulters in Taiser Town, a news source reported.
MDA has decided to make Taiser Town a model development for Karachi. For this purpose, the authority has decided to take active steps for completing infrastructural development in the project.
As such, plot allotments to 3,000 people have been cancelled due to non-payments; an issue which had been delaying further development. These people had booked plots in 2006, and their payments fell below 50% of the amounts due. The cancelled plots have now been included in the recent scheme of plots launched in Taiser Town.
At the same time, MDA has given the remaining defaulters a last chance to clear their dues.
Due to the high popularity of Taiser Town, the authorities have been considering adding further plots to the already existing figure of 28,000 present in the housing scheme.
Recently, the authorities had also decided to extend the deadline for submission of forms for balloting of plots in Taiser Town. The old deadline was March 31, 2019.
