National Database and Registration Authority will introduce an online form submission facility for “New Pakistan Housing Scheme” next week.
Talking to PTV News, Director NADRA Rizwan Haider, said that the decision of providing online facility has been taken keeping in view the difficulties faced by common citizens in form submission for the housing scheme.
“Housing is a basic right of every citizen. The Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme will offer employment opportunity to designers, craftsmen, civil engineers, architects, construction companies, cement and marble owners”, he stated in a news channel programme.
He said that the government-sponsored low-cost housing project could meet the residential needs of people with limited resources. Most of those applying for the housing scheme were salaried people, he added.
He expressed the hope that all deserving people would get affordable houses under this scheme on merit.
Rizwan Haider said NADRA had enhanced its network of mobile registration vans in rural areas to facilitate masses for correction of new housing scheme forms and for further guidelines.
He said that only one person per family will be eligible to apply for the scheme and preference will be given to candidates who do not own property in Pakistan.
Initially, the housing project has been launched in seven districts including Islamabad, Quetta, Sukkur, Faisalabad, Swat, Muzaffarabad and Gilgit.
