ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) on Friday initiated preliminary development work in sector E-12 from its own resources.

ICT Administration and CDA have taken over the possession of the sector. Soon detailed tendering will be carried out for the development of the sector, says a press release issued by CDA on Friday.

It said that sector Development Directorate of CDA has started preliminary development work on service road west of the sector while staff of Land and Rehabilitation Directorate, Land Survey, Enforcement Directorate and other formations concerned has also been deputed at the site. Officers of Islamabad Administration were present at the site for the assistance of the CDA teams.

Initially, service roads of the sector are being developed, while earth work on the adjacent areas is also being carried out.

Remaining issues which were causing hurdles in the development are also being sorted out amicably.

Development of sector E-12 was long standing issue as the land of the sector was acquired in 1987 and allotment of the plots to general public including federal employees was made in 1989 but the sector could not be developed due to noncooperation of local people, although they had been compensated in lieu of acquired land.

However, the incumbent management not only took the possession of land but also launched the development work in the sector.

CDA along with ICT Administration retrieved 2000 kanals and erected boundary pillars around it.
