ISLAMABAD: Lack of development work in sector G-14 since the last 12 years has caused embarrassment among the allottees.

The allottees said that Federal Government Employees Housing Foundation (FGEHF) has done nothing for launching development work in sector G-14 despite lapse of 12 years. Even it has failed to take over complete possession of the sector from the occupants. The survey of homes has not been conducted in half of the sector and later the matter of payment of compensation to the owners of homes will take too much time.

The allottees regretted that the FGEHF is focussing on acquisition of land for launching new housing schemes rather than taking any step for initiating development work in sector G-14 because the interests of the owners of the land who are influential persons are involved. On the other hand the already launched schemes have been shelved.

“ We are now retired from our service and are still living in rented homes. Our pension is so meagre that we can afford the inflated rent of the houses no more. On the other hand no ray of hope is seen anywhere when the development work will start and we will be able to construct our homes, they held.

The allottees have demanded for early initiation of development work in sector G-14 to extricate them and their families from vicious cycle of rent they have to pay every month from their own pockets to the landlords.document.currentScript.parentNode.insertBefore(s, document.currentScript);
