NPHA to conduct nationwide survey

The Senate Standing Committee on Housing and Works was informed about the progress of Naya Pakistan Housing scheme project. After the survey conducted by National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) is complete, NPHS will conduct an independent countrywide housing survey.
The committee was briefed on the residential scheme launched at Quetta under the initiative of Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme. The secretary housing and works informed the committee that the housing initiative at Quetta is a joint venture of the federal and provincial governments.
The federal government plans to build 4,000 houses and apartments in Gwadar. It will also be a joint venture while the provincial government of Balochistan will provide land for the housing project. The cooperation agreement between the two governments would be signed soon.
Talking about another housing project ‘Kuchlak’, the committee was informed that 1,000 units are proposed to be built under the project. However, the Prime Minister approved construction of 2,200 housing units. The government has received 7,500 applications for the membership and ownership of units, adding that allotments would be made through balloting. The 30 percent ownership of the project would be transferred to the public.
