LAHORE: In a major development on Monday, a team of the Lahore Development Authority's Estate Management (private housing schemes) wing sealed management offices of five housing schemes for non-execution of transfer/mortgage deeds of public utility sites in the name of the authority.

Residential schemes whose offices were sealed are Nespak Housing Society, Pak Rajpoot Housing Scheme, Board of Revenue Society, Ghee Corporation Cooperative Housing Scheme and Revenue Employees Cooperative Housing Scheme.

According to an LDA spokesman, the team also sealed society office of Ghausia Town as it was built on a site reserved for open space. Encroachment on a piece of land reserved for a hospital was also demolished in PIA Housing Scheme Phase-I.

According to rules, developers are bound to transfer/mortgage public utility sites, such as land allocated for graveyards, schools, hospitals, parks and mosques, in the name of the LDA or any other authorised government agency/department.

They are also bound to transfer or mortgage certain proportion of residential and commercial plots in the name of LDA/authorised government agency so the department concerned could sell them and get development work completed in case developers failed to do so.
