The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government has recently announced strong measures against illegal housing societies operating within the province. In a recent meeting chaired by Finance Secretary Muzammil Hussain, it was decided to impose bans and fines on housing societies operating without a No Objection Certificate (NOC).

Secretary Hussain stressed that illegal housing societies pose significant threats to agricultural land and food security. These unauthorized developments also contribute to various environmental issues, highlighting the urgent need for stringent action.

In a related development, the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) issued a public advisory urging citizens to avoid investing in illegal housing societies. An RDA spokesman disclosed that the authority has intensified its crackdown on unauthorized housing schemes. Acting on directives from the Divisional Intelligence Committee, the RDA has launched operations against violators of housing regulations. The Task Force established to tackle illegal housing schemes recently targeted four unauthorized societies: Capital Valley, New Airport Town, Banni Mehbob, and Gulshan-e-Bahar, located in Mouzas Katrian, Thalian, and Pilo, Rawalpindi.

Furthermore, the Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA) has taken legal action against cooperative housing societies unlawfully using its name. WAPDA has engaged various legal forums, including the Registrar Cooperative Housing Societies and the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA), to address this misconduct.
