Islamabad: On Wednesday, a parliamentary panel met to talk about the ongoing encroachment problem in Islamabad.
The National Assembly Standing Committee on Interior, presided over by Ahmed Hussain Deharr, took up the issue and resolved to speak with the Capital Development Authority (CDA) via the Ministry of Interior for additional discussion.
The Calling Attention Notice, which MNA Asiya Azeem presented to the committee, focused on the sale and leasing of commercial buildings that are used for residential purposes without completion certificates and the frequency of encroachments.
Members of the committee raised concerns about the substantial encroachment in several markets and commercial areas around Islamabad. In addition, a lot of the city’s apartment and high-rise structures have been occupied despite not having valid completion certificates.
Many building owners have disregarded completion certificates provided by the CDA upon the effective completion of a project as a result of layout plan infractions.
The group decided to contact the CDA management via the Ministry of Interior after realising how urgent the situation was.
The parliamentary subcommittee hopes to find a long-lasting solution to the encroachment problem and ensure adequate regulation of commercial buildings being utilised for residential purposes by enlisting the assistance and experience of the CDA.
