ISLAMABAD- The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has officially declared Capital Residencia and Royal Gardens, situated on Japan Road in Zone V, Islamabad, as illegal housing schemes. This announcement comes as the CDA issues a notice under section 49-C of the CDA Ordinance 1960 and ICT Zoning Regulations 1992, highlighting that both projects are being promoted without obtaining proper approval from the CDA.
According to the CDA notice, private sponsors are violating the provisions of ICT (Zoning) Regulation 1992, amended in 2010, and the Modalities & Procedures outlined for Planning and Development of Private Housing Schemes in ICT Islamabad. It emphasizes that launching any housing scheme in Islamabad without CDA approval is strictly prohibited.
The CDA expresses concern about the potential threats posed to public life and property due to the non-compliance with ICT Regulations. Consequently, the general public is cautioned against engaging in any transactions, such as bookings, sales, or purchases, related to these unauthorized housing schemes or land subdivisions. The CDA urges individuals to verify the legal status of any scheme through the official CDA website (www.cda.gov.pk) before making any investments. It has clarified that the CDA will not be held responsible for any fraudulent activities or losses.
Furthermore, the CDA instructs utility providers, including IESCO, SNGPL, and PTCL, not to connect services to these illegal schemes lacking CDA approval. The CDA also issues a strict warning to sponsors and management involved in unauthorized schemes, urging them to halt all illegal activities, such as advertisements, bookings, allotments, transfers, and construction.
