A Land Scam In Gujar Khan City Is Exposed

Uncategorized September 26, 2012

Revenue Department in Gujar Khan has glossed over a land scam by tampering the revenue records of Gujar Khan City and its adjoining areas. A few days ago, it was disclosed in a press conference that Azhar Kiani, a recently suspended patwari had replaced the names of the genuine land owners in the land records with the help of a specific group of land mafia and deprived a number of genuine land owners of their precious properties.

A number of people complained that their land record has been tampered with and transferred to a new landowner. The aggrieved persons filed a complaint that led to the suspension of the alleged patwari. However, when the aggrieved party tried to regain possession, a criminal case was filed against them and their family members with the involvement of police. However, they approached different authorities from assistant commissioner to the tehsildar but none of them resolved the case.

More than 50 mutation numbers in Jhanda, Negail Umer Khan and Barki Budhal areas had been tampered with and their revenue records were available. One of the aggrieved persons showed the documents wherein the names of genuine land owners were erased but was not refilled. The scam was exposed by Ch Jameel Patwari, who had taken over the charge after Azhar Kiani was suspended.

However, on pointing out the large scale tampering, they suspended him as well. Upon inquiry, Saqib Zafar, DCO Rawalpindi, said the complaint had been received and an inquiry was being conducted by the additional deputy commissioner (general) Rawalpindi.

CDA’s Housing Monetisation Plan To Give Islamabad A New Face

Uncategorized September 22, 2012

The Capital Development Authority is planning for a dramatic overhaul of the federal capital’s skyline. The CDA’s urban planning wing is preparing proposals for skyscrapers in sectors G-9 and F-6. The plan proposes a special zone of mixed use over an area of 371 acres with high rise developments. According to CDA Chairman, the plan is designed to gear up economic generation. CDA expects to generate a handsome amount of Rs 147.5 billion from this project. Last month, the Finance Minister had directed the Planning Commission to evaluate the political fallout of this plan. The monetisation proposal of lands of government housing units was approved in April and a revision of existing planning parameters, re-zoning and land re-classification was expected.

The Ex Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani was informed that the land in F-6 and other posh localities of the sector is just a waste of precious land because it houses government employees. According to the official record, only eight percent of federal government employees are housed in residential facilities owned by the federal government, 20 percent live in rented accommodation and 70 percent receive accommodation allowances.

The skyscraper project would also be a part of the Planning Commission’s “New Framework for Economic Growth” and it would include apartment buildings, commercial plazas as well as new public sector buildings. CDA also wants to establish a Real Estate Development Company to prepare business plans to attract local as well as overseas investors in the special zone of high-rise developments.

However, a few are against this plan as they consider it useless because it will be established in F-6 which is deemed too ‘quiet and peaceful’ and will benefit only a few influential people. However, the Chairman said this project will help CDA meet the modern development trends as it will develop 25-storey towers and commercial plazas. A few floors will be designated first for commercial purposes while the rest of the floors will be for residential apartments.

CDA Auction Is Restricted Again

Uncategorized September 14, 2012

weeks ago, prime minister blocked the auction of CDA commercial plots to the pre-qualified bidders but the authority’s heads have decided to continue with the proceedings. Capital Development Authority has agreed to auction eight sites for petrol stations of the estimated value of Rs 7 billion through the same process. These sites are on the extension of Blue Area in F-10, along Shahrah-e-Iqbal skirting E-9, E-10 and F-11 while two sites are located in G sectors.

Bear in mind that on 31st August, Prime Minister Pervez Ashraf had communicated to CDA that government will not compromise on transparency so the sale of 12 high value commercial plots to 11 pre-qualified bidders was blocked. People objected that the pre-qualification system only works for powerful investors who can get lower prices through their connections in the right places.

These sites can be auctioned at better prices through open auction. It is because the “pre-qualification” system is designed to help the mighty tycoons and established entrepreneurs who manipulate the bidding process.

However, CDA Chairman Farkhand Iqbal has his reasons to justify the pre-qualification process. He says, pre-qualification is an approved method, allowed by government and practiced to get strong leads. However, the final decision regarding petrol station sites is yet to be taken.

Though he has no issues regarding open auctions but pre-qualification brings serious buyers. Back in 1980, a successful bidder failed to pay the promised amount for a commercial pilot and he took CDA to the court for refusing to honour the auction deal. The court granted him relief and the plot is in a limbo to this day.

Pre-qualification bidding is always helpful as this process promises bid money to be paid as per the payment schedule. However, CDA Chairman promises to make the bidding process transparent.
