Islamabad: The allottees of E-12 have yet to get their plots, which they purchased from the Capital Development Authority (CDA) in 1989. Within a year of allotment, in 1990, the CDA was scheduled to hand over developed plots to allottees. Even after 32 years, they are still rushing from pillar to post to get their plots.
CDA, on the other hand, announced last year that it will remedy the problem. Road construction began, and it is currently ongoing at a moderate pace. The landowners (also known as land affectees) were arguing that their dues had not been paid, and that they were entitled to alternative plots before leaving the area, according to sources.
Officials with the CDA indicated that as part of the civic agency’s proposal, the affected people will be assigned plots in I-12 in exchange for possession of E-12. Officials indicated that while a vast number of affected persons had previously received compensation, there were still people who needed to be reimbursed.
CDA’s spokesperson Syed Asif Ali said the management had been focusing on all stalled sectors and during the last few years work was started in several stalled sectors, including E-12. “We are focusing on this sector,” he said.
When contacted, Special Assistant to Prime Minister (SAPM) on CDA Affairs Ali Nawaz Awan said that the CDA was all set to resolve the issue of E-12.
