Enough with the delay!


Minister of State for Housing and Works Barrister Usman Ibrahim on Thursday directed Capital Development Authority (CDA) to expedite the approval of the revised lay out plan of Sector G-14. This would save financial losses to Federal Government Employees Housing Foundation (FGEHF).
The minister issued the directions during a meeting held with Secretary for Housing & Works Nasar Hayat, CDA Chairman Nadeem Hassan Asif, FGEHF acting director general (DG) and CDA Engineering director.
He emphasised speeding up the handing over of 96 apartments of Sector G-11/3 reserved for CDA employees and also stressed the issuance of No Objection Certificate (NoC) to start work on Kurri Road Project.
CDA plans to start four new projects this year including construction of residential and non-residential accommodation for police at Aiwan-e-Sadr costing Rs 1.899 million and 104 additional family suites costing Rs 780 million. It has allocated Rs 416.908 million for Charah Dam and Rs 100 million for the construction of additional block for Senate and National Assembly Secretariat.
Plans for two new flyovers, one at the junction of 9th Avenue and Kashmir Highway and the second at the junction of Khayaban-e-Suhrawardy and 7th Avenue and expansion and repair of I J Principal Road and Kashmir Highway are underway.
CDA Chairman said, “To generate funds commercial plots will be put up for auction and whereas opening of two new residential sectors, C-15 and C-16 is expected to generate over Rs11 billion.” The minister directed the chairman to complete all developmental projects within the stipulated time period and accelerate action on FGEHF’S demands.
