According to news reports from August 8 in Karachi, Sindh Minister for Local Government & Housing Town Planning Syed Nasir Hussain Shah officially opened a low-cost housing project in Scheme 45 Taisar Town. The low-income segment of society has been promised 4,000 built houses in Scheme 45, which spans a massive 250 acres, as a substantial step towards tackling housing difficulties. It is important to note that Taiser Town is a master-planned neighbourhood with a total area of 14,466 acres, led by the Malir Development Authority (MDA).
The programme, according to the minister's remarks during its launch, had two goals: "to provide affordable housing solutions for low-income families and to honour the martyrdom of national heroes." Minister Shah honoured the martyrs' sacrifices while addressing the gathering. He promised that the government of Sindh would give the families of martyrs 3,500 plots. Director General Muhammad Yasin Shar of the Malir Development Authority, who was also present, praised the initiative as a monumental success that heralded a new era in public service.
Muhammad Irfan, Secretary MDA, added that the building has already begun with inhabitants' comfort in mind. The dwelling units, which range in size from 80 to 200 square metres, are also made to accommodate different needs and tastes. In order to further ensure the safety of the residents, the project also includes facilities like water, electricity, gas, street lights, and contemporary security cameras.
The public has praised this programme for making homeownership a realistic goal for those with low salaries. During a ceremony attended by notable VIPs such as Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, CM Sindh's advisor Faraz Lakhani, and Deputy Mayor of Karachi Salman Abdullah Murad, Minister Shah unveiled this plan.
