The government has taken the decision of adding 2 more cities from South Punjab namely Muzaffargarh and Dera Ghazi Khan in its recently introduced “Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme”, as per the reports of local media on Sunday.
Earlier, the Prime Minister—Imran Khan launched the “Naya Pakistan Housing Programme” under which five million houses would be provided to the underprivileged class in the span of next five years.
The programme was initially launched in its early phase for the seven cities which were Islamabad, Faisalabad, Gilgit, Quetta, Swat, Sukkur and Muzaffarabad.
The project was later extended further to Multan, Rahim Yar Khan, Layyah, Lahore, Sialkot, Kasur, Gujranwala, Jhelum, Bahawalpur and Vehari. And very recently Muzaffargarh and Dera Ghazi Khan are added further to the list.
Registration forms for the first phase of the programme are available on the official site of NADRA and could be submitted from the 12th of October to the 21st of December along with two hundred- and fifty-rupees registration fee at the selected district offices.
Prime Minister—Imran Khan has got high hopes with this scheme, as per him it would not just be providing shelter to the low-income group of the society, but, would also assist in increasing the country’s economy and would also be opening many job opportunities.
It indeed is an amazing initiative of the government provided that it gets successfully implemented.
