Islamabad: The government has begun a survey to identify illegal housing societies that have been established without a NOC, reported a news source.
A fresh list of private housing societies that are illegally operating without obtaining permission from the authorities will be prepared by the Revenue and Field Officers, according to the details.
Due to the non-submission of layout plans and NOCs, 140 private and cooperative housing schemes in the federal capital territory have been declared illegal and unauthorized in July 2021.
An approval process called two-tier approval is used to approve private housing schemes for which a NOC is issued and an approval is granted following the submission of a layout plan. In total, 19 steps are involved in the registration process, along with 29 intermediate steps.
NOCs are typically approved by civic agencies within two-and-a-half years. It may take up to two decades for the development work to be completed once the NOC is approved.
A lack of new residential developments by the government in the last many decades has encouraged the private sector to enter the housing market to satisfy the rising demand.
In order to avoid legal action, this list will direct illegal housing societies to stop development work as soon as it is prepared, an official informed us. The district administration will not allow unlawful housing societies to carry out development work since they need a NOC to do so.
Before buying any plot of land or property, people are already allowed to review the legal status of the housing society. This survey has also been an effort to protect the investments from these illegal housing societies.
