Islamabad: According to news reports, the Federal Cabinet formed a committee on Wednesday (November 10) to handle compensation concerns relating to the Capital Development Authority’s (CDA) land acquisition. Within 90 days of the application’s submission, the committee, which will be chaired by a retired High Court Judge or similar authority, will investigate and rule on the relevant issues.
According to the minutes of the meeting, landowners whose land was acquired by CDA but for which they were not reimbursed must make an application with the board’s secretary. The secretary would get feedback from the appropriate authorities on the application. After that, the board will make a decision within 90 days.
At the next cabinet meeting, the cabinet also directed CDA to present a development plan for Sector E-12, as well as a deadline for development. In the late 1980s, the authority purchased Sector E-12 and issued allotment letters for it. However, the sector has yet to expand due to a lack of land ownership by landowners. The government, on the other hand, has stated that the development of the aforementioned industry will be prioritised.
