ISLAMABAD: The Capital Development Authority (CDA) administration directorate has issued a draft General Waiting List (GWL) for allotment of government accommodation, according to a circular of the authority.
Acquiring government accommodation in the capital had always been an opaque issue with many loopholes like alleged monetary gratifications and political favours.
The draft GWL has been circulated to all section heads of CDA and also uploaded on its website on the directives of CDA Member Administration Yasir Peerzada.
Seven months past the budget, CDA employees are still waiting for the implementation of upgrading of pay scales, despite the fact that other federal and provincial departments had implemented the same.
The federal government had announced to upgrade the pay scales of assistant to BPS-16, UDC to BS-11 and LDC to BPS-9 in Budget 2016-17.
