ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has failed to complete the development work in Sector D12 despite the lapse of many years after the allotment of plots.
The sector was started in 1989 and the allottees have been waiting for the completion of the development work in the sector for last 24 years. The contract of the development work in the sector was awarded in 2005 and work was to complete in one-and-a-half to two year’s time but the same could not be finished even after the passage of eight years. The officials of the civic authority said that the development work in the sector is going on a very slow pace and about 65 percent work has been completed.

They informed that base-work of the roads has been completed and laying of water supply, drainage and sewerage lines is underway.

The officials said that land for service road west and east could not be acquired so far and Land and Rehabilitation Department was not taking effective steps in this regard. Secondly, the contractor was working at a very slow pace on the project. The allottees demanded of the CDA chairman to take notice of the situation and ensure completion of development work in the sector.

Inordinate delay in completion of the development work in Sector D12 has created problem to the allottees. The officials concerned said that advance payment amounting to Rs 140 million has been made to the contractor but the work is being executed slow paced by the contractor. Banners removed: Meanwhile, with the completion of polling process in the federal capital, the CDA has started removing banners and panaflexes of political parties According to the officials of the civic authority, after the completion of polling process in the capital city, they have started removing all the banners from poles and trees to bring the city to its original clean and beautiful condition.
