Islamabad: December 06, 2014 On the directions of Chairman Capital Development Authority (CDA), Maroof Afzal, CDA has started paying compensation in lieu of built up properties (BUP) to the affectees of Kuri Model village and affectees have started handing over the possession of their land to CDA.
Member National Assembly, Doctor Tariq Fazal Chaudhary handed over checques to the affectees of Kurri Model Village in a ceremony held on Friday evening at Kurri Village. On this occasion Deputy Director General Estate and senior officers of the Estate wing were also present.
Dr. Tariq Fazal Chaudhary said that role of CDA in the development of Islamabad is commendable. He said that the issues of the affectees would be resolved through mutual understanding and CDA has been playing a positive role in this regard. He further said that we should join hands with CDA to make the Islamabad more beautiful and a model city. He said that Kurri Model Village project will not only add to the grace of the city but will also help lift the living standard of the local people.
It is pertinent to mention here that as per award of 1968, CDA had acquired 2900 acres of land but the affectees had not handed-over the possession of land to CDA and the matter of Kuri village remained in the court. However, due to the hectic efforts of present regime of CDA and disposal of litigation in courts, work on Model Village Kuri has been initiated and started payments in lieu of those claims.
Affectees present on this occasion thanked the Government and CDA Administration for taking solid steps to resolve their longstanding issues and assured CDA for their full cooperation.
