The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has announced plans to start balloting plots for the development of Islamabad’s E12 sector. In the first phase of balloting, 102 plots will be allotted to the affected people,12 plots in the second phase, and 40 plots in the third phase. The Central Authority will also acquire services of the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) for transparent balloting to compensate all the affected people.
The sector E12 was launched by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) in 1989. However, due to the unresolved matter of compensating land value to people, the development work in the sector remained stalled for 30 years. This sector was planned to be a residential area and the Central Agency has also allotted 4,430 plots to the locals, but the development work had stopped due to disputes with the landowners.
However, the incumbent Government is making efforts to fasten the development work in the concerned sector. Almost 80% of work on the road infrastructure has been completed and about 4,000 housing units will be built in the sector. It will create investment opportunities and accommodation for the people of Islamabad and will also positively affect the real estate market of the country as more people will find a home in the capital. To improve development in the country, the Government is also involved in developing several other stalled zones.
