CDA unable to recover Rs4.51b lease extension fee, other taxes

Islamabad

The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has not been able to recover Rs4.51 billion on account of lease extension fee, annual ground rent and other taxes of commercial plots whose lease period had expired.

The auditor general’s report released recently has pointed out that the CDA Estate Management Directorate leased out commercial plots in various sectors for a period of 33 years.
