ISLAMABAD: The requirement for obtaining a “No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the Building Control Section (BCS)” for family transfers of residential properties has been eliminated by the Capital Development Authority (CDA).
The CDA board resolved to improve public service delivery and adopted a report on changes to the authority Property Manual that Member Estate presented to the board.
According to the decision’s specifics, no NOC from BCS is required as long as no building rules have been broken or the residential property isn’t being used in a way that isn’t compliant.
The sources did clarify that the competent authorities must receive an affidavit saying that any structure created in contravention of building ordinances will be demolished within three months.
Before the transfer of the property, the owner of a residential building was formerly obligated to demolish any unpermitted structures; this requirement is now extended to familial transfers as well.
Furthermore, as part of a significant change to the Property Manual during the meeting presided over by Captain (r) Muhammad Usman Younis, the CDA Board decided to increase the NOC’s validity from three months to one year.
Additionally, Member Estate Muhammad Afnan Alam sent a letter to the Directorates of Estate Management, One Window, Land and Rehabilitation, and Estate Affectees asking them to follow the Property Manual changes in letter and spirit.
It is pertinent to state that the decisions were made to reduce the burden for staff members of the relevant directorates and avoid delays in the transfer of assets.
