D-12 awaiting basic facilities

Islamabad—Instead of completing pending housing projects, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) seems to be more inclined to fetch further funds by launching new residential sectors prior to transfer of power to recently elected local governments. A number of sectors including, I-12, I-14, I-15, and D-12 launched decades ago are yet to be centre of attention for the civic body. The D-12 sector launched about 25 years back failed to attract the attention of the concerned for development of basic amenities for the residents.
The authority has the responsibility to develop, maintain, repair and resolve the problems of the residents of the city. It was decided in the board meeting of the CDA on December 16 last year that the authority will complete the up-lift work of D-12 with in three months, despite passing three month the civic body could not start development work at said sector.
The residents of the D-12 various time try to approach the high- ups of CDA but they remained fail due to personal engagement of the CDA’s top bosses. Talking to APP, resident of the sector D-12, Col (R) Naveed Qureshi said the development work of area was started back in 2001 and the civic body had collected development charges from the residents but at some later stage work was stopped leaving most of plans unaccomplished.—APP
