About 70 plots allocated against quotas in sector F-14/ 15

ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Housing and Works has allocated as many as 70 plots against constitutional quotas in sector F-14 and 15 under the Federal Government Employees Housing Foundation (FGEHF) and all 46 applicants for this category have been issued consent letters.

The availability of balance plots will be determined as and when exact plot position of the scheme is conveyed by the concerned quarters, an official in the Ministry told APP.

The issue of allotment of un-allotted plots will be decided upon receipt of final plot position after due adjustment within various quotas, with the approval of competent authority, he added.

To a question, he said the Ministry will start new housing schemes in Federal Capital including Thaliyan Housing Scheme on M2 Motorway interchange to overcome shortage of housing units. He said the FGEHF has entered into a joint venture agreement with M/s K.S. Developers & Builders (Pvt.) Ltd in Mouza Moorat, Mouza Chohan and Mandowal on M-2 Motorway near Thaliyan interchange for development of housing schemes on land measuring 7000 to 10000 Kanals.

To another question, the official said that no fresh allotments had been made by the Ministry on basis of standard rent since 2013. The official said the Supreme Court had also given a verdict not to allot any house on standard rent. “We are following the instructions of the Supreme Court”, he added.
