Illegal housing societies across province, Punjab government takes important decision

LAHORE - Over the issue of Illegal housing societies across province, Punjab government is planning to take an important decision.

Punjab government is working on a policy for one-time regularization of housing schemes amid several court proceedings against illegal housing societies and encroachments in the province.

The provincial government has also prepared a legislative instrument for approval in the Punjab Assembly. Additional Advocate General for Punjab Qasim Nawaz Chowhan informed the bench at the Supreme Court that the government could not finalize the bill because of the agenda including Punjab’s fiscal budget, but it will be presented soon.

The Supreme Court has been looking into the implementation of two judgments of May 4, 2018, pertaining to the Bahria Town projects of Takht Puri and Murree.

On March 21, the top court approved the offer of Bahria Town of providing Rs. 460 billion for the Malir or Karachi Super Highway project.
