Rawalpindi: The Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) has decided to issue new expressions of interest (EOI) for developing two separate schemes, a news source reported.
Named RDA City and RDA Orchard, these projects will feature houses and farmhouses, respectively. These schemes aim to cater to the residential needs of government employees. The civic agency plans to develop the project on a public-private partnership basis.
As per requirements communicated earlier, aspirants must own land measuring at least 4,000 kanals (2,000 kanals each for the said schemes). Individuals owning land less than the stated area will have to formally approach RDA as a group.
Previously, the authority had asked landowners to share development charges equally with RDA. This, however, led to poor response from private landowners.
An RDA official said that people who own land on the outskirts of the city are eager to fetch good prices for their properties. These individuals want the authority to offer incentives in exchange for their land.
