ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has lifted ban on allotment and transfer of plots by Land and Rehabilitation Directorate of authority.

In the light of orders of the Islamabad High Court (IHC), the Land and Rehabilitation Directorate has issued a letter to withdraw an office order of January 17, 2024 regarding ban on allotment and transfer of plots and issuance of No Demand Certificates (NDCs)

The IHC ordered CDA to lift ban on allotment and transfer of plots on March 21, However, it took four weeks by the Land and Rehabilitation to implement court orders.

There is an impression that the CDA management had imposed ban on allotment and transfer of plots after failing to control illegal and irregular activities in the directorate.

Over the last seven years, a large number of small investors had lost billions of rupees due to transfer of plots by CDA itself which later were declared as bogus plots by the authority.
