The Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) has initiated stringent actions against four unauthorized housing societies in the garrison city and surrounding areas.
RDA’s spokesperson, Hafiz Irfan, revealed that notices were issued to four illegal housing societies: High Life City by SSJ Marketing and Property Adviser at Mouza Niko, Wah Hills at Mouza Ghari Afghana in Taxila, and Amman Scheme at Mouza Rajar on Chakri Road.
In a stern warning to sponsors, the RDA cautioned against the promotion of any unauthorized housing projects within Rawalpindi. These notices were dispatched under the directives of RDA Director General Saif Anwar Jappa.
The concerned department of RDA has been instructed to file First Information Reports (FIRs) against the proprietors of these unlawful housing schemes. Owners have been explicitly instructed to halt the marketing of their unapproved housing societies and advised to obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from RDA to avoid legal repercussions.
The spokesman urged the public to refrain from investing in housing societies lacking approval from the authority. Additionally, the Planning Wing of RDA has called upon the Cyber Crime Wing of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to address misleading advertisements disseminated by these illegal housing societies.
According to Hafiz Irfan, the transgressions committed by the owners of these unauthorized housing projects fall under Rule 37 of the Punjab Development Authorities Private Housing Schemes Rules 2021, making them subject to legal action.
