Rawalpindi - The allottees of sector G-14 have asked the Federal Government Employees Housing Foundation (FGEHF) to expedite development work in sector G-14 to redress their grievances.

According to them, all dues of their respective plots have been paid while amount of built-up properties (BuPs) has also been paid on demand of FGEHF.

The allottees said that the FGEHF was avoiding to give the possession of their allotted plots within speculated time, adding, huge amount in this regard has also been paid by the allottees however no possession was given till date.

Some of them who got retirment from their services are much worried about their plots’ possession, as they have been paying huge amount on house rent since long, Tahir Khan, an affectee said.

The FGEHF official talking to APP, said the foundation has started the development work at sector G-14/3 after awarding built-up properties.

The FGEHF has awarded contract to M/s National Construction Limited (NCL) for development of infrastructure of Sector G-14/3, he added.

He said that NLC has started development work at site and built-up properties and illegal encroachments have been removed from the area while cases of 36 illegal houses are under consideration before the foundation.

He said the foundation is making all efforts to complete the development work at all ongoing housing schemes well in time. The process of assessment for awarding in favor of BUPs has been done by the Housing Foundation in sub-sector G-14/2 and G-14/1. The foundation is in close liaison with the land acquisition department for removal of bottlenecks, he said.

The FGEHF had announced allotment of Sector G-14’s sub sectors 1, 2 and 3 for different categories of government officers and other segments through balloting in 2003 but it was delayed due to illegal encroachment and built-up properties.

The FGEHF had issued notices to the allottees of sector G-14/1,2,3, in the light of Islamabad High court order of February 2014 in respect of award for BUPs of village Thalla Syedan.

Around 8,000 applicants were allotted plots in three sub-sectors and it was expected that within three to four years development of the sector will be completed and possession of the plots will be handed over to the allottees.

The administration of departments concerned at that time placed the matter of built-up properties compensation pending due to which allottees of sector G-14 suffered a lot. The management of FGEHF has now received the BUPs amount however the pace of work is still very slow.
