Land for the new sectors including C13, C14 and C15 has been acquired
The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has decided to open three new sectors in the capital. The planning has been finalised and the layout plan has been evolved in connection with these three new sectors which would soon be forwarded to the CDA board for approval. The survey for determining the compensation of the houses located in these sectors has not been conducted so far as certain influential persons are impeding this process because they want to hoodwink the CDA to receive compensation against bogus rooms. But such fraudulent tactics would not work this time as the survey would be conducted by the Punjab Urban Unit and not CDA. The sources have said that the land for the new sectors including C13, C14 and C15 has been acquired under the land sharing formula. Online
Sectors C-15 and C-16 would be opened for the general public in the next few months
The Capital Development Authority (CDA) would be launching two new residential sectors besides offering more plots in Sector E-12 to the general public during the financial year 2014-2015
A senior official CDA told that Sectors C-15 and C-16 would be opened for the general public in the next few months. “The exercise will not only help in creating new residential opportunities for the public, but it will also help the civic body to generate some handsome exchequer from sale of plots through balloting in these two sectors,” the official said.
The affected people of land falling in Sectors C-15 and C-16 would be compensated as per land-sharing formula and on the basis of award which was announced in 2008. According to the land-sharing formula, the owners of land would be given one fourth size of land against their land in shape of residential plots as compensation.
The management of the authority would also make provision for development sector I-12 where affected people of Sector E-12 are being accommodated.
It may be pointed out here that when the CDA offered a number residential plots to the public on heavy prices, it did not have possession of the land in Sector E-12. “Now we have been able to take possession of 800 kanals of land in this sector,” he said.
The officials said that once the launching of sectors is completed, the CDA would start working on revamping of sewerage and water supply system with change of various pipelines, and on their civic amenities.
The CDA would also carry out pending development work in Sector I-15 which was launched in 2005 by the then prime minister but due to lack of planning, neither the project of residential flats in the sector was materialised nor work on infrastructure development was completed.
Majority of 8,000 allottees of flats have taken back their money and remaining allottees who have not surrendered flats would be offered residential plots in the same sector.
