RDA (Rawalpindi Development Authority) has found 336 out of 484 housing societies in Rawalpindi are illegal after a crackdown on housing societies.
RDA’s DG reveals that this crackdown on housing societies is part of a concerted effort to regulate the real estate landscape and safeguard the rights and well-being of residents.
Saif Anwar Jappa, the Director-General (DG) of RDA, disclosed that only 69 housing societies currently possess legal status in Rawalpindi.
To address the proliferation of illegal housing schemes, a dedicated task force has been established, leading to the demolition of approximately 40 unauthorized housing projects.
Legal actions have been initiated against the owners of these illegal schemes, resulting in the arrest of eight individuals, with ongoing investigations.
In a significant step, Jappa has also sought the intervention of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to halt the promotion of these unapproved societies on social media platforms.
During the operation, authorities have filed 80 cases against these illicit housing societies, underscoring their determination to restore order and legality within Rawalpindi’s housing sector.
