A Land Ministry official has revealed that approximately 5,809 acres of land have been unlawfully occupied in Punjab, 1,181 in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 5,948 in Sindh, and 1,034 in Balochistan. The illegally occupied land comprises various categories, including commercial, residential, and agricultural land, and is currently controlled by different individuals or departments.

The official statement confirms that 13,970 acres of land are under scrutiny, with 769 acres designated for commercial use, 3,309 for residential purposes, and 5,512 for agricultural use. Regrettably, 4,382 acres of land have been encroached upon by various entities. The department has resolved to accelerate its ongoing anti-encroachment campaign nationwide.
