RDA Intensifies Crackdown Against Illegal Housing Societies in Rawalpindi

Rawalpindi Development Authority’s (RDA) top brass, and the Metropolitan Planning and Traffic Engineering (MP&TE) Directorate have begun their action against unlawful residential schemes in the metropolis.

In this regard, a spokesperson for the RDA stated that the Planning Wing took action against three illegal housing schemes, while operation against two others, including the Countryside Farm Houses and Turkish Smart City, is underway.

Moreover, Police Station Rawat also took into custody two armed men for creating hurdles during the operation. The spokesperson further advised not to invest in the Countryside Residency project near Rawat because it is illegal as well.

Meanwhile, the MP&TE Directorate has decided to launch an awareness campaign about marketing/advertising illegal or unregistered housing projects on social and print media.

In light of this, the RDA’s MP&TE Directorate has written to the FIA Cybercrime Wing, Overseas Pakistanis Foundation (OPF), Sui Northern Gas Pipelines Limited (SNGPL), District Collector, and Zilla Council Rawalpindi, in order to take collective action against such kinds of illegal projects within the RDA’s jurisdiction.

Furthermore, the spokesperson noted that DG RDA, Muhammad Saif Anwar Jappa, has ordered the MP&TE Directorate to keep taking action against unlawful and unapproved housing and commercial projects, including their booking offices, fearlessly.


  • Well done RDA ,please take action against encroachments on Service Road West ,where a marble factory mafia has captured the land of RDA . These factories are spreading pollution ,garbage and debris arround the RDA land on service road ,Gangal west . Rawalpindi.

    • RDA officers are the most corrupt… Action is only taken when a society refuse to pay them their share… Thousands of societies are allowed to market themselves and runaway with hard earned money of innocent people where RDA is just a spectator… A society must be fully registered with the RDA before advertising or even acquiring land otherwise the same practice will continue and only corruption will prosper at the cost of poor people hard earnings…
