NAB has so far not given Jeddah Town record to CDA


The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has asked the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) to hand the Jeddah Town project and its related records to the authority. The CDA reportedly wants to restart the construction of the housing scheme. Pakistan Today has learnt that the project was delayed as the NAB authorities had not provided the CDA the project’s record or the possession of its land as the NAB was waiting for the appointment of its new chairman. Sources in the CDA said construction work on the project was delayed as the apex court had restrained the NAB authorities from handing over the records until the appointment of its new chairman. Since the appointment of Admiral (retd) Fasih Bukhari as the NAB chairman, the CDA has sent a letter regarding handing over the land’s possession to the authority.
“CDA is now waiting for NAB’s reply on the issue. Discussions were also held between the NAB and CDA on the Jeddah town project,” said the source. A senior CDA official told Pakistan Today that a meeting between the CDA and NAB representatives is likely to be scheduled soon. In 2008, after finding enormous irregularities committed by a private firm in the development of Jeddah town, the NAB in collaboration with the CDA took possession of the housing scheme. The NAB also recovered the money laundered by Syed Muhammad Makhdoom Gilani.
The CDA was scheduled to start development work on the project but was unable to do that after failing to get the project’s record from NAB. Jeddah Town was launched in 1991 and offered 231 plots for sale over an area of 293 kanals. The Jeddah Town plan initially violated rules that state that a minimum of 800 kanals were required for the development of such a housing scheme. The project’s owners later added 507 kanals to the land already available and got a revised plan approved by the CDA.
The Jeddah Town owners were legally bound to develop the scheme within three years of its approval, but they started selling undeveloped plots to Pakistani expatriates living in Saudi Arabia, UK and UAE after receiving payment for developed plots. “Millions of rupees were extorted from over 927 expatriates. When they approached the NAB, it ordered an enquiry that resulted in arrest of the chief executive of the housing scheme, Syed Muhammad Makhdoom Gillani,” said the source.


  1. Dear Responsible officials at CDA and NAB kindly do something to resolve the long outstanding issue of Jeddah Town as lot of overseas Pakistanis' hard earned money is frozen in the shape of plots in this Housing Scheme. Kindly expedite and be blessed by Allah for good deeds.

  2. kindly please sort somthing out about jeddah town phase 2 at least we can build our houes thanks

  4. Again this is Malik Hamid how are you brothers Jummah Mubarik to all of you . A new application has been submited in NAB against Syed Makhdoom Gillani and some of his property grabbers .

  6. I agree with Malik Hamid, the guy has started the same business again by bribing CDA & NAB. No one can arrest him again as long as he keep bribing. One thing I must let every one know that SM Gillani will stand in Election from Faisalabad in gerneral Election so some one very powerful person may take him and can stop. Thanks

  11. Dear Brs & sisters, i need you attention. i am launching a comprihensive suomoto application to the Chief Justice of Pakistan against Mahdoom Gillani regarding jaddah housing society Islamabad.My civil case against him is already in Islamabad Court.Please call me and give me your details so that i could mention all of you in that joint application.Remember, suomoto is a quickest and easiest way to put up your issue on the table.Otherwise Gillani is grabbing and selling your property again and again.I have 3 plots 1-kanal each (residential) and 1-commercial plot 9-Marlas.Please join me and call my Cell No-03325581565

  12. someone asked a question…? what is the status of Jaddah Town. my friend this is not a society anymore.Its defuncked society black listed and banned in CDA/NAB. Plots cant be transferred to each other till next order.Gillani had trsansferred all his land to his clints and now he dosnt own even a snigle inch,this was the starting of his fraud.Whereas, society ownes dont transfer the land on your names,but they only issue allotment & possession letters.If the society owner transfer his land to the members dosnt keep one marla in his name then he loses the NOC issued by CDA and society becomes illegal. So juddah housing society is a private land at the moment and plot numbers are not specified in your sale deeds.So you can grab any plot where ever you want only if you have a gun in your hand and Makhdoom Gillani in your back. call my cell 03325581565.

  13. I have called CDA…. spoke to Shahzad Mirza (PA to the Director dealing) on phone # 925-2488. He was so kind enough to give me all the details. He confirmed that my plots exist and gave me new reference numbers. I have updated my current addresses with him. He said that they are waiting for NAB to transfer possession to them so that they can start development, however once it happened, allotties will have to pay development charges, for which they will notify all on their addresses.

    Hope this is true. However he mentioned that they are not sure how long it will take.

  14. I met with Mr. Shahzad Mirza (PA to the Director dealing) he gave me new serial number of my plot located in Jeddah town. which also exists on his computerized list.. You ppl are requested to confirm your plot existence . Therefore, I advise all fellows to to contact Mr. Shahzad Mirza 925-2488 and get updated position of your plots and also give them your own contact No. and addresses so that he can issue allotment letter of CDA to the real allottees.

  15. Dear Shakeel Ahmed….. AOA… so do you mean that they are now issuing allotment letters to all allotees? Have you received one for your plot? Do you have more updates as to if NAB has transfered records to CDA and if they are ready to start develpments etc.
    Thanks and have anice day

  16. Shakeel Ahmed saheb, AOA, Do you mean that they are now issuing allotment letters to allotees? Have you received one for your plot? And do you have more updates as to if NAB has transfered records to CDA yet and if so when CDA is going to start development etc?
    Best Regards

  17. I have talked to Shahzad Mirza, according to him they have moved file for approval of Board of Directors but uptill the decision is awaited about home much development charges are to be given.
    According to him transfers of officers and current scenario is the cause of this delay. NAB has also not yet handed over land to them due to which they are unable to plan nor write letters to the owners in this regard.

However, i just want to tell you that those who have plots in Jaddah Town phase-1. Please contact me as soon as possible, because time is very short and before you come to know that might be too late. Makhdoom Gillani and his kabza mafia people are illegally getting possessions on your plots and selling them to the new parties. please call my number and i will tell you the details. My number is…03325581565. Malik Hamid Nawaz

  28. I also have a plot in jeddah town. I am eager to resolve and inshaAllah do what I wish with my plot. I would be grateful for all recent updates

If you are one the victims as well (only in USA), please feel free to send your contact information so we can discuss a course of action and perhaps file a class action lawsuits against Mr. Gilani and his colleagues in the United States. [email protected]

    • Brother Gallani has already faced the sentence and now free, but at his absence some local mafia has grabed the plots from the allotees by using fake documents on gun point. If your plot was in phase – 1 must be captured and if phase-2 then safe because phase 2 is a junghle and non-developed area. let me know the details of your plot and i can tell you the current status from Head office through my sources. thanks

  30. can somebody let me know the real status of our plots at Jeddah Town, Islamabd ?
    how we can check with CDA personnel / website if our plot is listed in their record.
    kindly mail me at my email ID [email protected]


  31. I am Zubair from Islamabad, I have booked a plot in Jeddah Town, Phase 2 in 2004. Many applications submitted to NAB regarding the fraud of Makhdoom Gillani. NAB did not took any action, then I had submitted an application to Wafaqi Mohtasib (Federal Ombudsman) in 2010 regarding the fraud of Makhdoom Gillani and highlight the role of CDA and NAB (Govt. departments) they did not help the people effected by the project.

    After correspondence and hearings of appeal the Judge announced the Judgment that “If NAB releases the ceased amount of Jeddah Town to CDA then CDA will think to start the development of project”. And I feel this judgment is like saying "Inna Lilla Hi Wa Inna Elahi Raji Oon".

    It has been 3 years now and if NAB releases the funds to CDA now, the development cost is raised upto 300 times due to de-value of money, project not viable, again they will charge development and other charges from alloties.

    Besides this NAB and CDA don’t have any record / data of Jeddah Town, Phase 2 members quoted by Director Planning CDA, Asique Ali Ghori.

    Govt. department ki waja se Pakistan main fraud kar na koi muskil nahi

  32. Congratulations:
    for all efecties Jedah Town Phase I and phase II. a settlement is undergoing very soon in between Mr. Gelani and NAB. agreements are on final stages. We hope we will receive pending allotment letters for phase-II. and development work is going to start soon.
    for further info contact mr. gelani 0342-7865445

  33. i think we all are not praying properly thats y our tears cant be seen and our cries our not answered. where as these , so called Property grabbers ( qabza group) are better Muslims.

You all remember when ever you Pray keep these names in your mind and beg to Allah please bless all of us and also be mercy full on these people.
