Prime Minister Imran Khan will perform the ground breaking of the first project of the Naya Pakistan Housing Program during the second week of April.
Radio Pakistan reported that during a meeting on the Naya Pakistan Housing Program in Islamabad on Friday, the PM was informed that legislation for the programme has been finalized and it will be soon presented to the cabinet committee on legislative cases before being tabled in parliament.
Four sites in Islamabad, one in Lahore and another in Quetta are ready for the formal launch of the Naya Pakistan Housing Programme.
Discussing the issue of allowing vertical structure, it was decided that the procedure being followed in the federal capital would be replicated in all major cities of the country.
PM Khan said the five million housing programme is a flagship program of the government and will boost the economy by creating job opportunities for the youth and businesses for allied sectors of the construction industry.
He directed that the process of legislation should be expedited and seamless coordination should be ensured.
