Land is already being allocated for the prime minister’s Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme.
Chairing a meeting in Lahore on Friday, Housing Minister Mehmoodul Rasheed announced that 655 kanals of land in Faisalabad has been designated for the project.
Single, double and triple storey flats will be constructed, he said. On Makwana Road, 9,500 flats will be made, he added.
However, he said it will take one and a half to two months to establish the authority that will be responsible for the construction of the project.
The government aims to build five million homes in five years. The low-cost houses project will be initially launched in seven districts.
NADRA has issued online registration forms, which can be submitted from October 22 to December 21. The registration will be completed in two months.
