Federal Government to Perform Ground-Breaking of Sky Garden Housing Scheme on Tuesday

ISLAMABAD: After years of delay, the Federal Government Employees Housing Authority will now begin construction on Phase-I of its Sky Garden Housing Scheme project.

The on-site development work will begin on Tuesday with a ground-breaking ceremony performed by Federal Minister for Housing and Works.

M/s Commoners Sky Garden was successful in mutating 6,000 kanals of land in favor of FGEHA.

The scheme’s layout plan was also finalized and approved while 1418 plots have been created by the approved LOP.

However, another issue arose when only 1,900 kanals of land in Mouza Kattar were cleared for allotment, while the rest of the land in Mouza Mengal went into litigation over the issue of ‘shamlat land’ in light of Supreme Court orders directing the NAB to investigate the matter.

The authority decided to limit the project to clear land only, so a revised JV Agreement was signed between FGEHA and M/s CSG, with the scope of the project limited to land in Mouza Kathar only.

“The development work on the first phase would be completed in one year, as agreed, and the authority is working hard to begin development on phase II as well,” said Tariq Rasheed, Director General of FGEHA.

“The matters about this scheme were pending before the SC and NAB but now all the land mutated under the name of FGEHA has been cleared,” he said, adding, “We are hopeful that we will provide possession of plots to allottees within the next one year.”

It is worth noting that the Joint Venture Policy was approved by the Federal Cabinet in 2016, and this is the first housing project to be completed under the policy in the last six years.
