Prefabricated housing project inaugurated by PM

Prime Minister Imran Khan Wednesday has performed the ground-breaking of Prefabricated Housing Project in Islamabad. As part of this project affordable houses will be provided to ordinary people within a period of 4 to 5 months. PM Imran Khan said that prefabricated houses will be established in big cities like Karachi and Lahore where many people have been residing in extremely underdeveloped areas without basic necessities because the land is extremely expensive there.

The plant for Easy Prefabricated Homes is being set up by leading Chinese company Henan DR Construction Group in M-3 Special Economic Zone.

Thirdly, she stated that Ehsaas is embedded in a theory of change, reflected in four pillars: action against elite capture; safety nets; livelihoods and jobs; and human capital formation with a focus on lagging areas.
