LAHORE: Lahore Development Authority (LDA) Director General Amna Imran Khan has said an online approval system for building design would soon be introduced by the authority.
She was talking to the press during an open court (khuli Kutcheri) at the LDA One Window Cell on Saturday.
The people could get their building designs approved through an online approval system without visiting the LDA office, she said. Khan added that the ownership record of plots in four residential schemes, including Gulberg, Mustafa Town, Avenue-One and Jubliee Town had been computerised for the convenience of the people. The plots in these residential schemes were being transferred online, she maintained.

The wing also retrieved the pledged plots in Pak Arab Housing Society by demolishing illegal structures on plots, besides demolishing illegal boundary wall of a plot reserved for a park, according to an LDA spokesman.
The LDA also retrieved land reserved for parks at Formanites Housing Society by demolishing illegal structures. The illegal building, steel shed, boundary wall and internal structure at plot number 8 and 14 of Lahore Avenue were also removed by the LDA wing.
