DC Mohammad Hamza Shafqaat, according to reports, launched the PVC to begin property verification in an effort to combat real estate fraud in the city. The capital administration and the CDA also built a site that comprised records on housing societies and land. In addition, the DC asked that everyone use the CityApp, which the administration had recently launched.

Furthermore, DC Shafqaat revealed that inferior housing projects in the capital city have made residents from other parts of the country and Pakistanis living abroad victims of land fraud. He went on to clarify that such housing associations have either been declared illegal or are not subject to the city’s jurisdiction.

People can invest in housing schemes and real estate projects that have been inspected and deemed legal by the DC office and the legislation through this programme. The verification centre would allow the buyer to check the legal status of the apartment before concluding a contract, according to information shared about the centre.

Once the legal status is shared, the customers can buy it after a week. This service can also be availed by Pakistanis residing overseas.
