Here Are the Illegal Housing Societies in All Zones of Islamabad

The incompetence of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has led to a proliferation of illegal housing societies in Islamabad.

The number of such societies has now reached 149, causing citizens to suffer financial losses while the CDA remains a silent spectator.

Among the zones in Islamabad, Zone-IV has the highest concentration of 85 illegal housing societies, followed by 20 in Zone-I, 7 in Zone-II, 7 in Zone-III, and 30 in Zone-V.

These societies are actively engaged in the sale and marketing of plots without proper authorization.

While the CDA has issued notices to these unconstitutional societies, their numbers continue to grow. It has come to light that out of the 149 societies, none have obtained the required No Objection Certificate (NOC) despite receiving approval for their layout plans.

According to CDA officials, these societies can only engage in transactions once their layout plan is approved and NOC is obtained.

The CDA authorities have taken the step of informing the public through public notices. They urge individuals to thoroughly check the status of any housing society before engaging in the buying or selling of plots to avoid falling victim to illegal activities.

It is important to note that the CDA does not bear responsibility for any losses incurred as a result of dealing with these illegal housing societies.


  • CDA should be responsible for the losses. They are allowing these societies to operate and they do so with full immunity. Maximum loss for them is that they will cease operations. These criminals should be brought for justice.

  • WHY CDA AUTHORITIES TURNED BLIND EYES TILL ILLEGAL SOCIETIES SPRUNG OUT IN CAPITAL OF PAKISTAN.

  • نامکمل رپورٹ ھے اس میں نام بھی لکھیں تاکہ معلوم ھو سکے کون کون سی سوسائٹیاں یہ کھیل عوام سے کھیل رہی ہیں

  • One of them is Icon Gardens at Zone V near Naval Anchorage & Kangota Syedan

  • Certainly CDA should be held responsible for allowing these societies to continue selling ‘fikes’ but the property agents making millions also need to held accountable. They are the lead beneficiary and must be held equally responsible for losses being faced by investors.

  • Nalaik Insan, where are the names of the society. As the heading says here are the names?

  • سی ڈی اے اس جرم میں مکمل شریک ہے کیوں کہ ا اس کی ناک کے نیچے سوسائٹیاں پلاٹ بیچ رہی ہوتی ہیں اوپر تک نظام خراب ہے

  • CDA should be responsible for the losses. They are allowing these societies to operate and they do so with full immunity. Maximum loss for them is that they will cease operations.

    These CDA criminals should be brought to justice…..

    . List of such socities must be attached with the article…… Propakistan failure on behalf of editor….. Shame on you do a fair reporting

  • CDA is a corrupt mafia. There is no time limit specified for approving the so called housing societies layout Plans implying bribery. Why can’t CDA just circulate the list of authorized housing societies on a monthly basis. It is so, because, it would end corruption.
