The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has decided to remove generators from houses because they were causing air and noise pollution.

The CDA board directed the department concerned to take action against house owners using generators. The CDA board also issued instructions that no one will be allowed to have generators outside their homes. If this happens, the relevant departments of the CDA will take immediate action. The generators will be confiscated after completing legal formalities.

The CDA board also approved the allotment of land for the FIA’s Pakistan Institute of Development Economics (PIDE) and the National University. The CDA has also given a go-ahead for the preparation of a general waiting list for the repair of government houses.

The meeting also approved an allocation of land for the Faculty of Special Education Academy. It was also informed that the first high-tech facility would be set up in the federal capital. The meeting also approved a property manual to ensure ease of doing business and to link it to the 1819 helpline and automation system. The CDA board will also submit a report on the matter related to the high court verdicts. It has been informed that the CDA Board has also approved the preparation and provision of a General Waiting List (GWL) for the repair of government houses.

The CDA board said that since the budget was already low, the "first come, first served" principle would be adopted and there would be no discrimination.

The full implementation of the general waiting list will be ensured.
