The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has taken a crucial step towards providing transparency to potential property buyers by sharing the updated list of approved housing societies in Islamabad.
The move aims to equip prospective investors with vital information to make informed decisions regarding real estate purchases.
The CDA follows a two-tier approval process for housing projects in the city. Initially, it grants technical approval to the project’s Layout Plan (LOP). Once all necessary formalities are fulfilled, the authority issues No Objection Certificates (NOC), allowing sponsors to proceed with development work and plot sales.
Zone-4 of Islamabad permits agro-farming and residential housing schemes, but the CDA only grants permissions after ensuring that all required formalities are completed per the provisions of the ICT (Zoning) Regulation, 1992 (amended in 2010).
To curb the presence of illegal housing societies and protect potential buyers, the civic agency has taken a firm stance against the marketing and advertising of housing projects without proper NOCs. Such practices are considered illegal and unauthorized. Advertisers and marketing agencies are strictly warned against promoting illegal housing schemes, and sponsors of such projects are directed to refrain from marketing and developing without the necessary NOC from the CDA.
The revelation of the updated list of approved housing societies is a relief to various segments of society, who have raised concerns about the risks of illegal housing schemes. Access to reliable information allows potential buyers to make informed decisions and safeguard their investments when considering real estate opportunities in Islamabad.
