Islamabad: The Ministry of Housing and Works has initiated the process of offering final possession letters in Sector G-14/1, 2 and 3, and has so far awarded these permits to 54 allottees.
As many as eight allottees have applied for the no objection certificate (NOCs) issuance for approval of building plans in Sector G-14 – out of which only four have started the construction of houses on their properties until now.
An official from the ministry said that a federal cabinet decision (taken in March ‘95) has banned construction of new government accommodation for federal employees and offered them rental ceiling with salaries. Reportedly, the said decision was only partially implemented and no new government accommodations were constructed afterwards.
However, the official revealed that no rental ceiling was offered with government employees’ salaries – as it would have been a heavy cost to bare for the national exchequer.
