Rawalpindi: The district administration and the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) have decided to launch an operation against seven illegal housing schemes situated on the Grand Trunk Road near Taxila, a news source reported. The authorities plan to seal the site offices of these illegal residential projects.
Previously, the civic agency had sought the assistance of the deputy commissioner for this purpose. The said societies are situated in Mouza Pind Gonda, Mouza Jahando, Mouza Anwar Chowk, Mouza Lab Thutoo, and Mouza Sarga.
To provide any untoward incident, the deputy commissioner has also directed the local police department to assist the officials concerned with the operation.
According to the RDA, the housing schemes in question were established without its approval. The management of these societies is involved in the sale and purchase of land – a practice deemed illegal under the bylaws prescribed by the civic agency.
Earlier, the officials concerned had issued notices to the schemes management and barred them from marketing their projects.
