RAWALPINDI: Blue World City, a housing scheme, on Friday clarified that it has submitted an application to the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) for a no-objection certificate (NOC).

In a press release, Sarfaraz Ahmed Gondal, the country sales head of the scheme, denied conducting any advertising for the project and said once the NOC is received, the project will be advertised. He said the company reserves the right to take legal action against those who were misusing the names of government bodies and organisations and spreading rumours to damage Blue World City’s reputation.

He said the company’s low-cost housing project, aimed at fulfilling a common Pakistani’s dream of owning a house, had created panic among competitors who were now spreading false information about the scheme.

However, according to Mr Gondal, very soon Blue World City will confirm the issuance of a NOC to it and take necessary steps to accelerate the work in progress. It has launched the low-cost housing project in Lahore following issuance of a NOC, and will soon launch the project in Rawalpindi.
