The revival of pro-poor housing facilities under Prime Minister Imran Khan’s “Naya Pakistan” initiative is a ray of hope for the lower middle-income groups yearning to live a dignified life in their own shelter.
Unlike the previous regimes, the present government showed strong commitment and launched comprehensive efforts for providing five million housing units to the low-income group.
To achieve the objective, the Federal Government Employee Housing Authority (FGEHA) has been tasked. The authority is pursuing joint ventures on private land, government to government programs on government land.
The government revived various impeded projects including Green Enclave-I Bhara Kahu project in December 2019 to allot 3,282 plots to the applicants. The authority allotted 5,198 plots under Sky Garden project after its revival in July 2020 and allotted 3,240 plots under the Lifestyle Residency Apartments G-13 scheme.
The prime minister inaugurated Kashmir Avenue G-13 Islamabad scheme to build 1,467 apartments; 3,432 apartments to be built under Chaklala Heights Rawalpindi scheme, 3,945 apartments under SkyLine Apartments Islamabad scheme and 1258 under Lifestyle Residency Lahore scheme.
