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

Work on Kurri Model Village starts

Islamabad, October 17, 2014: On the directions of Chairman Capital Development Authority (CDA), Maroof Afzal, Estate Wing has started taking possession of land on the long delayed and most important project of Kuri Model Village. In this regard, demolition of build-up property in village Kuri and Rehara has commenced and 10 houses of the affectees, who were ready to handover the possession, have been demolished here on Friday and CDA has taken possession of this land. Compensation would be paid only to those affectees ‘within two days’ who will handover the possession of their built-up property to CDA for demolition and whose award was announced in 1968. Besides, these affectees would also be allotted plots in Kuri Model Village simultaneously in lieu of the demolished built-up property.

It is pertinent to mention here that as per award of 1968, CDA had acquired 2900 acres of land but the affectees had not handed-over the possession of land to CDA and the matter of Kuri village remained in the court. However, due to the hectic efforts of present regime of CDA and disposal of litigation in courts, work on Model Village Kuri has been started. The present regime has shown keen interest and taken concrete measures to commence work on all stalled projects of immense importance including Park Enclave. On the directions of Chairman CDA, Maroof Afzal, the development work of Park Enclave has been started very recently. All those projects, which remained shelved, have been prioritized by the present regime on its agenda, adding that these projects would be completed on war footing. Chairman CDA urged the Estate Wing to ensure payment of compensation and allotment of plots in lieu of demolished built-up property to the affectees of Kuri Model Village Project so that the project could be completed well in time. | Read more
