ISLAMABAD (APP)- The Sub-Committee of the Senate Standing Committee on Law, Justice, Human Rights and Parliamentary Affairs has again directed the housing societies operating in ICT to streamline their working especially with regard to completion of paper work to expedite development of plots for enabling their members actually undertake construction of houses. The committee which met at the Parliament House on Saturday regretted that a seemingly unending process of objections and counter-objections appears to be underway, which is badly defeating the very purpose for which the housing societies were created and allowed to function in the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT). It instructed all concerned to get down to business seriously and some progress must be visible on the ground, so that the plot owners would have the satisfaction that things are moving ahead and one day they may be able to realize their long-cherished dream of owning a house. The meeting was chaired by Senator Chaudhry Muhammad Anwar Bhinder, Convenor of the Sub-Committee and attended by Senators Kalsoom Parveen and Gulshan Saeed, besides the Secretary Senate, Raja Muhammad Amin, Chairman CDA and senior Government officials. Today's meeting reviewed matters relating to Senate (Secretariat) Employees Cooperative Housing Society (Registered) and Jammu & Kashmir Cooperative Housing Society.The President of the Senate Secretariat Employees Cooperative Society informed the Committee that contouring and survey has been completed and given to the Town Planner for revising the layout plan. He said that the Senate Housing Society would submit an application specifying 'Khasra numbers' of the land to be acquired. The Convenor expected the notification of acquisition of land must be issued by February 10, 2009 and said both the lady Senators would visit the site on February 06, 2009 to see the actual progress with regard to construction of the road. It was observed that unless approach road was commissioned speedily matters could not be expedited. The society was instructed to settle ownership issues not only with other societies operating in the area but also with the private owners so that actual construction of new approach road could be undertaken. The Jammu & Kashmir Cooperative Housing Society was directed to complete the demarcation process expeditiously by erecting the pillars. The President and General Secretary of the society were also directed to see the DDG, P&D, CDA in his office positively next week to sort out remaining matters with the authority.
