Rawalpindi - Rawalpindi Development Authority has decided to take action against illegal housing schemes/farm houses on Adiala Road which are operating without obtaining formal approval from the RDA.

The director metropolitan planning and traffic engineering (MP&TE) directed owners of Ideal Farm Houses, Safari Green Farms and Gulshan-e-Farzand Housing Scheme to stop all sorts of advertisement, construction and infrastructure development work, informed RDA spokesman yesterday.

He said that owners were ordered to submit requisite documents within two weeks for approval of housing scheme.
