Encroachment Issues in Islamabad to be Discussed by Parliamentary Panel and CDA

ISLAMABAD: A parliamentary panel convened on Wednesday to tackle the persistent problem of encroachment in Islamabad.

The National Assembly Standing Committee on Interior, chaired by Ahmed Hussain Deharr, discussed the issue raised by Member of National Assembly (MNA) Asiya Azeem regarding the sale and lease of commercial buildings for residential purposes without completion certificates, as well as encroachments.

After thorough deliberation, the committee decided to engage with the Capital Development Authority (CDA) management through the Ministry of Interior to address both concerns.

It is noteworthy that encroachment has been a longstanding issue in Islamabad, with many markets and commercial centers affected.

The CDA’s enforcement wing has conducted sporadic operations, but a permanent solution has yet to be achieved.

Moreover, a significant number of high-rise and apartment buildings in Islamabad are operating without completion certificates, often due to violations of layout plans.

The committee also addressed a matter raised by MNA Aliya Kamran, regarding the leakage of rainwater from the roofs and walls of Parliament Lodges.

Besides, the committee directed the CDA to promptly resolve the issue and report back. Additionally, the committee discussed various legislative bills.
