CDA decides to develop infrastructure in three sectors

ISLAMABAD: The new management of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has decided to undertake infrastructure development works in three sectors of the capital and funds for these works are to be generated by auctioning off commercial plots in March.

According to reports, the decision was taken in a CDA Board meeting, which was presided over by CDA Chairman Syed Tahir Shahbaz.
It was decided that funds generated through the sale of commercial plots in the respective sector would be spend on development work in the same sector, to ensure uninterrupted progress of the development work.
