Islamabad The Beautiful

Islamabad is beautiful. It is a region-wide symbol of progress, innovation and architectural marvel.

Settlement in Islamabad, the new capital after Karachi, began in the 1960s. As the city was newly founded, the growth of the population was slow. Being the seat of the Government of Pakistan, initially government servants and employees of the federal administration settled here. Since then, there has been a steady growth in the population of the city, which has swelled to somewhere in excess of a million inhabitants. The reason: at the moment, the capital city is the fastest growing urban settlement in the country. There is an increased interest in the city from The President and The Prime Minister, as well as a renewed drive from foreign investors to invest in the city. This has caused a growth in the economy, produced employment at all levels and ensured development. Owing to all these factors, Islamabad is now becoming a lively and bustling metropolis, full of vibrancy.| Read more

Islamabad: March 30, 2015 Capital Development Authority (CDA) has cancelled the allotment of fifteen (15) houses, which were under non-conforming use in different residential sectors of Islamabad. CDA has also requested Islamabad Electric Supply Company (IESCO) for immediate disconnection of electricity supply of these houses. These houses were used for commercial ventures instead of residential purpose and CDA initially served the owners of these houses with notices and after proceedings in the court of Deputy Commissioner CDA, the allotments of these houses were cancelled. In order to discourage the commercial activities in the residential areas CDA has also written a letter to IESCO for disconnection of electricity supply which would help curb non-conforming use in the residential sectors. These houses were located in sector F-6, F-7,F-10 and E-7.

Chairman CDA, Maroof Afzal has directed the concerned formations to serve notices to owners of the houses in non-conforming use without any discrimination and to cancel the allotment after through proceeding in the court.
