ISLAMABAD: CDA’s project worth PKR 10 Billion for the development works in rural areas of the capital will be approved by the Development Working Party (DWP).
While sharing the details of the new project, which would “end the urban-rural divide,” the Chairman of Capital Development Authority (CDA), Noor-u-l Amin Mengal, stated
“We have prepared a PC-I, which will be presented before the DWP meeting on Thursday for approval,”
It is worth mentioning that the CDA mainly focuses on the capital’s urban areas, whereas the local government department of Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) administration undertakes development work in rural areas, primarily through the Public Sector Development Programme (PSDP).
Regarding the debate about undertaking development projects in rural areas of Islamabad, The chairman said, “We reached this decision that the CDA could do so since it approves no-objection certificates (NOCs) for housing societies and also collect some other taxes.”
Per the PC-I, the set deadline for the completion of the project is two years and conforms with the objectives of rural development outlined in the plan. The prospective project includes compulsory infrastructure facilities like clean drinking water, road construction, street pavements, and other necessities in rural areas.
The document of the PC-I reads, “In most of the rural areas… water flows in existing kutcha (unpaved) streets which creates unhygienic situation /pollution in the locality; similarly, the existing roads, water supply and street pavement/ sanitation system are in dilapidated conditions and require immediate repair,”.
The project will provide around 700,000 inhabitants with sanitation, drinking water, good communication, and basic facilities. Real Estate News and Blogs, visit Realtors blogs.
