RAWALPINDI: On Thursday, Commissioner Liaquat Ali Chatha urged the district administration to work on finding solutions to the public’s problems with encroachment, traffic, sanitation, and revenue.
The commissioner indicated during a meeting that he would personally check on the cleaning arrangements at various union councils early in the morning.
He stated that the master plan for Rawalpindi, which would identify greenbelts and forbid development there, was being created, with special reference to mushrooming of unlawful housing societies.
The administration and other stakeholders should play their roles in this regard and raise awareness among the public so that they should not invest in any society that has not been approved, he noted.
Besdies, Chatha warned that strict action would be taken against illegal housing societies across the board without discrimination.
According to him, revenue authorities have also been given deadlines for completing the computerization of land records in all the district’s villages.
They will finish their records within a month, and Patwaris whose records are still missing after that time will face strict departmental action, he cautioned.
