Illegal allotment by CDA caused losses of billions

ISLAMABAD: Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on Monday remarked, during hearing of a suo motu notice, that illegal allotment of over 4,000 plots by the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has caused a loss of billions of rupees to the national exchequer. He was heading a three-member bench also comprising Justice Khilji Arif Hussain and Justice Tariq Parvez. Representing CDA, Ramzan Chaudhry, said that employees had been allotted 20 percent quota under the government’s 1993 land policy. The chief justice responded by saying that no such policy existed, adding that the CDA should refer the issue to parliament for promulgation of a new law on plots’ allotment.
