Developers of Housing Schemes to be Registered in the FDA
Faisalabad: The Faisalabad Development Authority (FDA) Director General Suhail Khawaja has said that FDA would register the developers of private housing schemes for ensuring transparent, lawful, and organized town planning system.
While chairing a meeting with the developers of various private housing schemes, Khawaja said that FDA governing body had given approval for the matter of registration of developers of housing schemes and the work on it would be started immediately.
He also said that the registration of developers was a significant and useful step to control the mushroom growth of illegal and unapproved housing schemes that cause financial damages to the public. Once the decision is implemented, no developer could establish a housing scheme without registration with the FDA in its jurisdiction. He also made it clear that the developers of under-process applications of approval would also have to register with the FDA first then their cases would be considered.
