Islamabad -  The Capital Development Authority (CDA) on Thursday carried out computerised balloting for allotment of one hundred and twelve (112) alternate plots of different size in Sector I-12 for the allottees of Sector I-14.

Some of the allottees of I-14 were allotted double plots while plots of few were deleted due to re-designing of Sector I-14 that led the authority to balloting.

Balloting process was supervised by a committee headed by Deputy Director General Estate and Land CDA Nadeem Ahmed Abro while Director Estate Management, Director Security, Director IT and other officers of relevant formations were also the member of this committee. The ceremony was also participated by the allottees.

During the balloting, which was held at Pak-China Friendship Centre, 36 plots measuring 138 sq. yards, 6 plots measuring 166 sq. yards, 45 plots measuring 200 sq. yards and 25 plots measuring 233 sq. yards have been allotted.    

Meanwhile, on the directions of Chairman CDA Maroof Afzal, the Enforcement Directorate of the Authority carried out an operation to retrieve CDA land, adjacent to the some residential houses in sector F-6, F-7 and Sector F-8 from illegal encroachers. During the operation, the lawns and gardens set up on CDA land were removed and CDA land adjacent to the five houses in different sectors was retrieved from illegal occupants.

Furthermore, Chairman CDA Maroof Afzal has said that Islamabad is the only well planned, modern, clean and green city in the region. While addressing the participants of the workshop on “Pakistan Bio-remediation Model for Waste Water Treatment”, he said that presently about 15 small and large streams originate from Margallah Hills and converge at Nala Korang and Nala Lai at different points. “CDA in collaboration with NARC is working on a comprehensive plan for treatment of water flowing through these streams in the city so that it could be purified and further used for gardening, car washing and all other purposes other than drinking,” he added.   

The chairman CDA appreciated the research papers on preservation of natural resources, presented by experts, particularly from NARC and PARC, and said, “We can implement these plans with the help of modern technology to preserve our rich natural resources for our generations.”
