CDA Cancels Licenses of 14 Housing Societies


The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has canceled the licenses of 14 housing societies as they failed to register with the district administration.

According to the CDA official, the societies were needed to register in the district in which they were located; but, they failed to obey CDA’s directives as a result their licenses have been canceled.

These societies include WAPDA Employees Cooperative Housing Society, Veterans Cooperative Housing Society, OGDC Officers Cooperative Housing Society, Work No Word Cooperative Housing Society, Foreign Office Employees Cooperative Housing Society, Ministry of Commerce Employees Cooperative Housing Society, Pakistan Public Works Department (PWD) Society, Pakistan Employees Cooperative Housing Society, National Police Foundation, and Federal Shariat Court Employees Housing Society to name a few.

The notice for cancelation will soon be issued.

It is to be mentioned here that CDA has already closed offices of two housing societies in the span of a week. These societies are Rawal Enclave, an illegal and unapproved housing scheme in Islamabad’s Zone 4, and Ghouri Town.

Moreover, a couple of years back, CDA had declared two Housing Schemes illegal and annulled the No Objection Certificates (NOCs) of three housing schemes.

Housing Societies Directorate of Capital Development Authority has declared authorization of two housing schemes and has canceled NOCs of three housing societies.

These housing schemes included Mauza Gora Mast, Zone-V, Islamabad, Tele Town Housing Scheme, and Icon Gardens Apartments. Project Moza Gogota Syedan, Zone-V, Islamabad was also declared illegal. The financers of these illegal housing schemes/land sub-divisions did not obtain any approval / NOC from CDA.

In contrast, the Housing Societies Directorate of Capital Development Authority had also withdrawn NOCs for the layout plan of three housing schemes. These three housing schemes comprised Roshan Pakistan Housing Scheme, Zone-II, Islamabad, Soan Garden Housing Scheme, Zone – V, Islamabad, and Pak Medical Housing Scheme, E-11, Islamabad. The licenses of these three Housing Schemes have been annulled for not fulfilling the directions of the authority.
