Action against 14 housing societies registered in Islamabad and located outside the limits of Islamabad.
The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has canceled the licenses of 14 housing societies that failed to register with the district administration. These societies were asked to get themselves societies registered in the district in which they are located. Since they failed to comply with the requirements set in place by CDA, their licenses have been canceled.
The Registrar of Co-operative Housing Societies exercised its powers and canceled the registration of these 14 societies.
The non-complying societies include WAPDA Employees Cooperative Housing Society, National Police Foundation, OGDC Officers Cooperative Housing Society, Federal Shariat Court Employees Housing Society, Ministry of Commerce Employees Cooperative Housing Society, Foreign Office Employees Cooperative Housing Society, Work No Word Cooperative Housing Society, Pakistan Public Works Department (PWD) Society, Veterans Cooperative Housing Society, and Pakistan Employees Cooperative Housing Society, along with several others.
Under CDA directives, a notification for cancellation will be issued shortly. CDA has also closed down two offices of two illegal and unauthorized housing societies. The move comes after CDA’s renewed efforts on cracking down on illegal and non-compliant housing societies.
