Around 150,712 low-cost housing units are being built in all over Pakistan, the minister stated during question hour in the House.

The minister stated that housing finance applications for 9,563 applicants who were chosen in the balloting for housing units that were still being built were being processed. The Federal Government Employees Housing Authority (FGEHA), the Workers Welfare Fund, and development authorities are working together to implement low-cost housing projects.
He asserted that the matter was still in progress and that the court was hearing it every second or third day. The Sector G-14/2 BUP measurements must be finished before anything else, per the court’s directive.
In this regard, he added that the FGEHA had asked IHC to give the affected parties committee members instructions to coordinate daily for the measurement of legal and illegal BUPs with regard to Sub-Sector G-14/1.
The minister asserted that no work has been finished in Sub-Sector G-14/1, Islamabad, because locals refused to allow FGEHA and its survey teams access.
