MULTAN: Deputy commissioner Amir Khatak Wednesday said that initially an over 900-acre piece of land near Mauza Bahawalpur Sukha has been identified for the Prime Minister’s Housing Scheme in Multan. However, search for the most suitable piece of land was still in progress and more proposals of different other locations would be sent to the provincial government, the DC said while presiding over a meeting of housing and town planning agency here at circuit house.
Terming the scheme as a revolutionary initiative to provide own homes to low income people, the DC said that a committee headed by assistant commissioners has been formed to locate more suitable sites.
He said the provincial government would take final decision regarding the site while keeping in view the infrastructure facilities available there. He said the process of building 2.5 million low-cost housing units in Punjab has begun. He said the scheme would also be initiated in Renala Khurd, Lodhran, Chishtian, and Multan, says an official release.
