The CDA Act of 1960 mandates that the civic agency acquire land in Zone I for the development of sectors. In 2008-9, the CDA completed the development of 24 sectors and acquired land for seven additional. It did not, however, disclose their built-up property prizes in order to obtain possession of the land and begin development work. D-13, E-13, F-13, C-13, C-16, I-17, and H-16 were among these sectors.

The cabinet, on the other hand, directed the CDA to announce the pending BuP awards as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, the cabinet decision, which can take effect when parliament amends the CDA ordinance, states that the civic body cannot conduct forcible land purchase for housing reasons. This means the civic agency will be unable to buy land for the development of the D-14, D-15, E-14, E-15, H-13, H-14, H-15, and H-17 planned sectors.
