Constituted to finalise names of 500 eligible employees from grade 14 to grade 16 for the allotment of residential plots in Islamabad, a Capital Development Authority committee will submit its report to chairman Kamran Lashari today (Tuesday) for mandatory approval. Plots will be allotted through secret balloting likely to take place next week, according to a senior CDA official.
After seeking consent of the interior ministry that financially and administratively controls it, the CDA entrusted Deputy Director General of Estate Wing as well as Directors of Land and Rehabilitation, Urban Planning and Law Wings to make a list of civic body employees from grade 14 and above who are eligible to the allotment of a residential plot in Islamabad under the rules.
Though the committee did the needful in the stipulated time, the CDA chairman, in a bid to make the whole process more transparent and fair, formed yet another committee to look at the previously finalised names for plot allotment.
Supervised by newly appointed Member (Estate) Brig Asad Munir, the committee had Deputy Director (General Administration), Director (One Window), Director (Law), Director (Land and Rehabilitation) and Director (Estate Manegement-1) as its members most of whom were not eligible for the allotment of residential plots in the federal city.
According to the recommendations finalised by this committee, those currently working with the CDA as deputationists are eligible to get plots only if they had completed one-year service in the civic body by August 30, 2006.
Through secret balloting, 500 eligible CDA employees from grade 14 and above will receive plots in I-8 sector. There are five plot sized 50×90 for grade 20 employees and 250 plots measuring 40×80 for employees from grades 17 to 19 and 135 plots of size 35×80 for the employees of grades 14 to 16.
