RDA Declares Over 300 Housing Societies Illegal in Rawalpindi

In a sweeping operation against unlawful housing schemes, the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) has declared a staggering 336 out of 484 housing societies in the city as illegal. This revelation comes as part of a concerted effort to regulate the real estate landscape and ensure the safety and rights of its residents.

Saif Anwar Jappa, the Director-General (DG) of RDA, revealed that only 69 housing societies currently hold legal status in Rawalpindi. To combat the proliferation of illegal housing schemes, a dedicated task force has been established. As a result, approximately 40 unauthorized housing schemes have already been demolished.

In a significant move, legal actions have been initiated against the owners of these illegal housing schemes. So far, eight owners have been arrested, with investigations ongoing. To curtail the promotion of these illegal ventures, Jappa has also reached out to the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to halt the advertising of these societies on social media platforms.

During the operation, 80 cases have been registered against these unlawful housing societies, signaling a strong message from the authorities that they are determined to restore order and legality in Rawalpindi’s housing sector.

    • They will never share the list. This whole system is corrupt. The crackdown in Pakistan is always done after they are done with the corruption.
      Aur insaaf to yahan kabhi milta hi nahi hai. Courts bhi sirf chor ki protection k liyay hain.

  • DG it self is most corrupt person….. what is his performance since he was in RDA?? previously he was CEO in Cantonment Board Rawalpindi…full of nepotism, bribes,& Corruption

  • these 300 illegal society owners should be behind bars because they have scammed billions from ordinary citizens. starting a housing society and selling plots which is illegal is a huge offence. But these society owners operate multiple societies, moving from one to another, scamming people each time.

  • Mery sath bara fruid howa hy ASWA HIGHTS k name sy, SHALIMAR TOWN me builder ny payment jama kri or bhaag gya hy project kisi or ko sale out kra hy , brabr me FAROOQ TRADER TOWER walo ko ,
    Awam ka paisa ly kr bhaaga hy Aswa hights wala

  • They keep the list a SECRET, to earn more. These giants like CDA, housing and works and RDA , they are love corruption like food… even a class 4 in these organisations are billionaires….

    • List down only approved societies so people go directly on RDA’s website to see if the one pitched to them is on the list or not.

      And we have seen that some societies initially receive approval and when people buy some plots then these authorities pull their blessings from some of such housing societies so in that case all those responsible should be sent to the gallows

  • So RDA itself is illegal. Where was it sleeping when ordinary people were wasting money buying from these housing societies.

  • Why RDA does not take any step in initial stages??? When peoples invest at the end it said its illegal. Also what about Blue world city (awami block. Sport velly and general.block). According to.BWC they got NOC
