ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Housing and Works has allocated as many as 70 plots against constitutional quotas in sectors F-14 and 15 under the Federal Government Employees Housing Foundation (FGEHF), while all 46 applicants for this category have been issued consent letters.
According to an official of the ministry, the availability of balance plots would be determined as and when the exact plot positions of the scheme were conveyed to the ministry by the quarters concerned. He said the issue of allotment of plots would be decided upon receipt of final plot position after due adjustment within various quotas and with the approval of a competent authority.
To a question, he said the ministry would start new housing schemes in the federal capital, including Thaliyan Housing Scheme on M-2 motorway interchange, to overcome shortage of housing units in the city.
He said the FGEHF had entered into a joint venture agreement with M/s KS Developers and Builders (Pvt) Ltd in Mouza Moorat, Mouza Chohan and Mandowal on M-2 motorway near Thaliyan interchange, for development of housing schemes on land measuring 7,000 to 10,000 kanals.
To another question, the official said that no fresh allotments had been made by the ministry on the basis of standard rent since 2013.
The official said that the Supreme Court had also given a verdict that disallowed the allotment of any house on standard rent. “We are strictly following the instructions of the Supreme Court in this connection,” he added.
