CDA Plans Feasibility Study for Employee Apartments

Islamabad: The caretaker federal cabinet has tasked the Capital Development Authority (CDA) to conduct a feasibility study on providing high-rise apartments to its employees, shifting from the standard practice of allotting plots.

This decision was prompted by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) orders following discussions on the adverse effects of Regulation 5 of the Islamabad Land Disposal Regulations 2005 on CDA’s revenue.

The CDA has a long-standing practice of allocating small plots to its employees. This practice commenced in 1971 and continued until 2006, when the last allotments were made. The CDA has recently drafted an Allotment Policy that has undergone revisions. The revised policy emphasizes pricing based on land acquisition and infrastructure costs.

The government is proposing to build apartments over plots of land instead of expanding horizontally, in line with global trends favoring vertical structures. The Ministry of Interior sought approval for this revised policy in compliance with court orders.

The civic body will review it for fairness and feasibility of employee apartments. The court will receive a progress report on the February 21, 2024 hearing today. This move addresses housing needs while optimizing land usage in the capital.
