Punjab’s Interim Chief Minister, Mohsin Naqvi, has introduced a groundbreaking initiative aimed at offering residential plots to journalists, photographers, and cameramen, with a special 15% quota reserved exclusively for journalists. During a ceremony held at the Chief Minister’s Office on Sunday, Naqvi announced a historic development for Punjab, disclosing plans to allocate 3,300 residential plots to reporters and media professionals through a transparent balloting process.

In this innovative step, reporters will be awarded 7-marla residential plots, while cameramen and photographers will receive 3-marla residential plots through a fair and transparent balloting mechanism. The eligibility criteria for obtaining these plots will be unveiled in an advertisement scheduled for Monday, January 22. The Ravi Urban Development Authority (RUDA) will disseminate information to the journalist community, outlining the procedures for acquiring these plots.
