Housing scheme feasibility discussed

By our correspondent

LAHORE: Punjab Minister for Housing & Urban Development Mian Mehmood-ur-Rasheed has said the launching of ‘Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme’ was a reflection of creation of welfare state which would honour to provide five million housing units for low-income people.

He was addressing a meeting held to review the pre-feasibility reports prepared by Urban Unit and Housing Department Punjab, regarding the said scheme being initiated in Chiniot and Sialkot.

The meeting discussed all the matters pertaining to layout, population of nearby localities, distance from other cities, cost of land, design, legal framework, development model, sales & marketing and subsidy in detail.

The minister said 2.5 million housing units would be built up in Punjab and all the stakeholders would be taken into confidence in this connection. Initiation of housing units across the province is revolutionary step by the Punjab government and this scheme would soon be extended to the rural areas phase-wise, he added.
