The Federal Government Employees Housing Authority (FGEHA) would charge only the ‘actual cost of construction’ from the allottees of Kashmir Avenue G-13, after the government decided to pass on relief given to the construction sector under the PM package.
The tentative schedule of payment was issued to apartment allottees with the note that “relief in construction sector under Prime Minister Package will be passed on to the allottees accordingly,” according to an official document.
The concession in the form of cost of land would, however, be Rs8,597,707 per flat for A-Type category while Rs8,622,094 per flat for B-Type category.
The ground breaking of 56 kanals of land for housing project in Mauve Area, Sector G-13 Islamabad, was held on April 2019 by Prime Minister Imran Khan aimed at providing housing facilities to the federal government employees.
It consists of three towers, each with three basements, ground plus twenty one (G+21) stories and total number of apartments was 1467, out of which 714 are of 1300 square feet and 753 of 1100 square feet.
The basements were reserved for car parking facility, while the ground floor is reserved for the amenities.
The contractor M/s Kingcrete Builders was mobilized after the signing of contract and submission of due guarantees.
Excavation activity for the three basements is near completion and pile load tests are underway.
The contractor has given the timeline for completion of foundation of all towers and sub-structure of one tower by the end this year. Thereafter, work would proceed towards superstructure.
However, he said, the cabinet decision had partially been implemented by imposing ban on construction of new government owned residential accommodations.
