Lahore: On May 2, a news source reported that the Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has established a committee to examine its land records and prevent scams including duplicate compensation and exemption.
According to the news source, LDA has received numerous complaints regarding double compensation and exemption. The plots granted in exchange in Johar Town would be the main focus of close examination about double compensation or exemption. The Chief Town Planner (CTP) was asked to provide the data on plot exchanges between 2018 and 2023 to the Anti-Corruption Establishment (ACE).
The LDA also established a committee to examine the files that were in progress but excluded from the 2017 inventory list. The committee will examine each file's facts and conduct an analysis in accordance with its Terms of Reference (TORs). The committee will assess the status of the previous plot and confirm its exchange processes and onsite possession status if plots are exchanged.
The committee will also be in charge of analyzing the One Window Cell application's initial process and entire history. The committee will cross-verify earlier communications and transactions and compare scanned copies of possession registers. It will thoroughly examine the files and provide suggestions for their inclusion in the Inventory List in accordance with its assessed integrity.
