100 Development Projects For Karachi Under Works

Prime Minister Imran Khan has asked the concerned authorities to ensure that the Rs1 trillion funds allocated for the metropolitan city are spent on the development of Karachi and asked the relevant departments to first make alternate arrangements before beginning anti-encroachment drives in the city.

In another meeting, PM Khan directed the relevant departments to not delay the provision of utility connections to new housing projects, especially electricity, as there was no power shortage in the country.

During the meeting, the officials also informed PM Khan about the construction of around 6,000 apartments under the Pakistan Quarters project for Karachi.

The meeting was also informed that around 100 projects were being planned under the Karachi Transformation Plan using the Rs1.1tr funds allocated by the government for this purpose.

Other participants at the meeting included Chief of the Army Staff Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, federal ministers Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, Asad Umar and Faisal Vawda, and Adviser to the Prime Minister on Finance Dr Abdul Hafeez Shaikh.

PM was also informed that the completion of the 100 development projects under the KTP will be done under three phases.

PM Khan also emphasized the need for addressing the city’s problems in a permanent manner and ensuring that the steps taken have a long-term view. He also advised the relevant departments to clear out and remove the encroachments on the nullahs and major storm drains and provide alternative housing arrangements for those who will be evacuated from such sites.

“However, people in such settlements must be provided alternative shelter before carrying out anti-encroachment operations there,” he said.

Regarding the construction of 6,000 apartments under the Pakistan Quarters will be completed in three phases: first of which will include 700 units in the next three months with an estimated cost of Rs4 billion. The remaining will be constructed in a phased manner as well.
