Nearly 100 Illegal Housing and Farming Schemes Operating in Islamabad

As many as 98 illegal agro-farming and housing schemes are operating in Islamabad’s Zones 3 & 4 according to Capital Development Authority (CDA) documents seen by ProPakistani.

These schemes lack the necessary approval from the CDA and have sidestepped essential codal formalities mandated by ICT (Zoning) regulations. Despite their unauthorized status, these schemes are actively promoting plots for sale, drawing attention to significant regulatory oversight.

Among the flagged schemes are Royal City Housing Scheme, Japan Valley, Simly Valley (1&2), Satti Town, Abdullah Gardens, Canterbury Enclave, Qurtbal Town, Commoners Sky Garden (Flower Valley), Madina Enclave Phase-I, Star Villas Housing Scheme, Saif Gardens, Babar Enclave, Doctors Enclave, Green Avenue-II, Hammad Town, Marwa Town, Media City-1, Paradise Point HS, Government Officers Co-operative Housing Scheme, Badar Farms, Green Field, Shaheen Farms, Kohsar Enclave, Green Meadows (North Ridge) Housing Scheme, Al-Rayan Society, Katrsaz Villas, Major Makhdoom Society, Green Hills, Arcadia City, Aryan Enclave, Adil Valley, Adil Farms, Al-Syed Avenue, Al-Rehman City View, Al-Rehman Villas, AI-Huda Town, Ali Model Town, Asian Ranches Villas, Arsalan Town, Abu Bakar Town, Ameer Khan Enclave, Blue Enclave/ Star Home, Burma Town, Bylee Town, Bara Kahu Enclave, Bani Gala Hill View, Commoners Sky Garden (Flower Valley).

The illegal agro-farming and housing schemes also include City View, City Town, Capital Gardens, Dream Land City, Faisal Town, Ghouri Town, Green Avenue, Green View Villas, Green Valley, Gulberg Town, Gulf Residencia, Green Residencia, Hill View Houses, Iqbal Town, Ideal Residencia, Ittifaq Town, Islamabad Saif Garden, J&K Farm Housing Scheme, Kiani Town, Land Sub-division sponsored by Mr. Shahzad, Madina Town, Muslim Town, Margalla Gardens, Mufti Mehmood Enclave, Makkah Town, New University Town, Olive Wood Farms, OGDCL Town, Park Lane Valley, PTV Colony, Rawal Enclave, Royal Homes/Residencia, Spring Valley, Sama Town, Tricon Agro-Farms, The Enclave Housing Scheme, Danyal Town, Ghakar Town, and Usama Town.

The illegal schemes serve as a stark reminder of the challenges posed by unregulated urban expansion and the urgent need for stricter enforcement measures. As the authority issues a cautionary advisory against engaging in transactions related to these illegal schemes, attention is drawn to the broader implications for urban planning and development in Islamabad.

  • The stunning efficiency of CDA unmatchable and second to none comparing to any development authority in the world.The efficient , dedicated and honest administration of CDA after twenty years of hybernation period decided to take action against illegal socities in Islamabad . It seems that the aforementioned societies were constructed beneath the earth and now emerged on the ground.CDA Management should be awarded best performance award on 23rd of March 2024 . Weldone CDA keep it up.

    • Well said, it is impossible that at the time of construction of these societies CDA was unaware. Now taking action against societies is againstpublic interest as these societies have higher density if people living wthin

  • یہ ادارہ اسلام آباد کی ڈیولپمنٹ کی راہ میں سب سے بڑی رکاوٹ یے، دیکھو جی ٹی روڈ
    راولپنڈی آپ کو لگے کا کوئی کپیٹل سٹی بن رہا ہے۔ان رشوت خور مافیہ کا مقصد ترقی کو روکنا انویسٹمنٹ کو ڈسکرج کرنا ہے، اگر کوئی
    سوسائٹی بنا رہا ہے تو اس کو اتنا تنگ کرتے ہیں کہ وہ پلاٹ بیچ کر بھاگ جاتا ہےاور عوام پھر اس ادارے کے ہاتوں زلیل ہوتی ہے۔

  • پاکستان میں فراڈ کرنے کے زرائع ارباب اختیار نے دے رکھے ہیں ۔ آپ سکیورٹی ایکسچینج اینڈ کمیشن آف پاکستان میں کمپنی رجسٹر کروائیں اور لوٹ مار شروع کر دیں۔ لوگوں کو پلاٹوں کی فائلیں بنا بنا کر بیچنا شروع کر دیں۔ اسکے لئے ایڈورٹائزمنٹ کھل کر کریں۔ ہوٹلوں میں سیمینارز کریں۔ بنک اکاؤنٹ کھلوائیں ۔ کروڑوں اربوں روپے لیکر ملک سے بھاگ جائیں۔ 20 بیس باڈی گارڈ رکھیں۔ اسلحہ کی کھلی نمائش کریں۔ بدمعاشی کریں۔ قتل و غارتگری کریں۔ نہ پولیس کا ڈر نہ عدلیہ کا ڈر

    کیا یہ میرا پاکستان ہے؟؟؟

  • It’s because CDA is not developing its own sector like I12,, G 14/1, F14,E11 , since 10-15 years or more. Why these sector pending????

  • Write whatever you want to. Nothing is going to change here for the better. When corruption, inefficiency, bad intentions and mafia raj are in our genes, how can improvement take place?

    Wherever you go, one business is thriving- property agencies. They are minting billions, perhaps trillions, in this business. The area I live in has dozens of property agents but no shop for items of daily use. To open a property business, you do not need any license, no qualification, no registration, and no taxes. Just take a plunge into property business, you will hit a landmine overnight.

    Such is the wilderness we live in.

  • It really highlights the incompetency of CDA as they say “closing the barn door once the horse has bolted “and of course CDA should be held accountable and payable to those affected if they had done their job then not one illegal housing scheme would amongst us however CDA like to portray themselves as proactive against such illegal builds but they only serve as a lesson of how not to run a development authority department
