  DHA City scam Affected Gathered For Protest in Zaman Park
Posted by: LRE-Azan - 10-08-2018 12:10 PM - No Replies

After Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived on Sunday in Lahore, people affected by the DHA City scam gathered outside his Zaman Park residence to stage a protest.

Traffic on Canal Road was blocked due to the protest and the police were called in to disperse the protesters. Around eight to 10 people were arrested, including two women according to protesters.


The protesters say eight years have passed since they bought plots in DHA City Lahore but they haven’t gotten the plots or their money back. They appealed to the prime minister to help them.

In December 2017, an accountability court charged three people -- Hammad Arshad, his brother Murad Arshad and Brigadier (retd) Khalid Nazeer Butt — of trading thousands of kanals of land fraudulently on behalf of DHA.
According to an agreement signed between DHA and a private company on June 14, 2010, the latter was to provide the housing authority with 25,000 kanals of land in return for over Rs2 billion. However, Hammad and Murad only managed to sell 13,092 canals to DHA, most of which was on the riverbed of the Ravi River and inaccessible by road.

NAB began investigating the case in 2011 after a complaint was filed by a resident and DHA. Brigadier (retd) Butt is accused of approving the project even though the master plan hadn't been approved and 30% of the plots had not been allocated for families of martyrs, which is a requirement.

Former chief of army staff General (retd) Ashfaq Pervez Kayani's brother Kamran is an absconder in the case.

On September 24, people affected by the Eden Housing Society scam staged a protest outside the premier’s residence and also blocked traffic.

  Govt. of Punjab launches anti-encroachment operation in Lahore
Posted by: LRE-Azan - 10-03-2018 12:18 PM - No Replies

LAHORE: District Administration Lahore, Walled City of Lahore Authority (WCLA) and other allied departments have kicked off a massive anti-encroachment operation today across the city.

Chief Minister Usman Buzdar in a meeting last month had announced to launch the operation to retrieve the state land from mafia.

Sources told The News that land mafia is currently occupying thousands of kanals of land in the provincial capital, which includes 31,000 of Revenue Department, 636 of LDA [Lahore Development Authority] and 280 of Forests Department.

The Punjab government completed its plans for the drive along with the identification and demarcation of the encroached and occupied state land.

Lahore Deputy Commissioner Capt ® Anwar-ul-Haq also chaired a meeting of all allied departments to review their final preparation and execution plan on Monday morning. As per the report, District Administration Lahore is going to retrieve 31,687 kanal state land, 35 acre land of forest department, eight plots worth millions of Walled City, 636 kanal land of LDA, and 32 plots worth two billions of MCL.

The DC said that MCL, LDA, and Walled City Authority had already marked the encroached and occupied land and anti-encroachment cell has also been established at district level whose members would be DC, DIG operations and representatives of LDA and MCL. “There is also a plan to save the retrieved land from again occupation. Heavy machinery will also be used in the operation by two teams, each consisting of 40 officials, one team comprised of MCL and Walled City and other team consisted of MCL and LDA.

Rescue 1122 vehicle and Fire Brigade departments were also directed to be present on the spot along with police officials to avoid any untoward incident, the DC added.

The operation started from Sabzazar truck stand by team one and from Anarkali, Willingdon Road and Urdu Bazaar by another team.

  Real estate scams - Bahria Town and DHA City
Posted by: LRE-Azan - 10-01-2018 07:09 PM - No Replies

Bahria Town’s activities were no secret, but it took years, and several orders by the Supreme Court, before NAB finally produced sufficient evidence for the apex court to deliver a damning verdict against the real estate behemoth in May this year. Then there is the DHA City Lahore case in which NAB named Kamran Kayani, the brother of former army chief retired Ashfaq Pervez Kayani, as one of the main accused. That investigation too, like so many others, has gone nowhere.

It is not as though land scams were unknown in this country earlier and that unscrupulous individuals did not dupe the public into investing in projects that did not materialise. But such fraudulent schemes were neither so common nor so massive in scale — involving multibillion rupee profits and affecting tens of thousands of people — as they are today.

In recent years, numerous such major projects have come up in various urban centres, often constructed on illegally acquired prime real estate or in violation of laws that govern the disposal of land. Violence is invariably part of the mix, used to evict indigenous communities and when rival groups of land grabbers settle scores amongst themselves.

Meanwhile, speculation has pushed property prices beyond the reach of the average citizen, let alone the lower-income segment of society that has no recourse but to look to informal suppliers of real estate. The land mafia should not be further emboldened by lack of action by the government.

  NAB prosecutor revealed to Ashiana Housing scheme
Posted by: LRE-Azan - 09-19-2018 12:03 PM - No Replies

LAHORE: The National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) prosecutor revealed before an accountability court that the company which was given Ashiana Housing scheme contract transferred Rs 30 million into the account of Fawad Hasan Fawad’s brother Waqar Hasan.

An accountability court of Lahore, during the hearing of Ashiana Housing Scheme scandal, was apprised by the NAB prosecutor that Kamran Kiyani made transactions into the account of Waqar Hasan after the finalization of contract’s bidding process.

The Bureau’s prosecutor said money worth Rs 30 million was transferred into the account of Waqar Hasan by the company, which was awarded the contract of the housing project.

The income means of Waqar Hasan are disproportionate to his claimed occupation of being a businessman, the NAB prosecutor told the court.

The anti-graft watchdog sought further physical remand of one of the key accused Fawad Hasan Fawad for further investigation.

The defense counsel argued that the money was transferred to the account of senior civil servant’s brother on account of business purpose.

It is pertinent to mention that former director general Land Development Authority (LDA) Ahad Cheema is also among the accused in Ashiana Housing scam.

According to NAB officials, Ahad Cheema, as director general of Land and Development Authority (LDA), gave the contract of Ashiana Housing Scheme to a company in Rs 14 billion whereas; it is unlawful to make any agreement above Rs 150 million with a company.

NAB officials have found out that it was due to the hired company’s incompetence that the project could not be completed in three-year duration which brought upon a loss of Rs 640 million to the government.

  When the right time's to invest in Pakistan property?
Posted by: LRE-Azan - 09-15-2018 02:06 PM - No Replies

It's the right time to invest in Pakistan's property sector as prices have been increasing over the past few months after the Imran Khan-led PTI government came into power, industry executive and developers said.

"After the new government took over, we are seeing the property market is getting active again. People are looking at investing again. There is a sense of confidence on the ground and if that keeps building, we will start seeing an increase in prices. Property prices in Pakistan have been stable in the last couple of years since tax reforms were introduced in 2016," said Zeeshan Ali Khan, CEO and co-founder of Zameen.com, Pakistan's largest property portal and host of the Pakistan Property Show, which is being held at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

When tax reforms were introduced in 2016, sales of properties worth over Rs5 million had slowed down because they fell under the tax net. But off-plan properties and those priced below Rs5 million saw traction.

"There has been more movement in low-end properties. It was good for the sector because people were flipping properties, that has now stopped," Khan said.

"Pakistan's economy is not in good shape now but people are very positive. This wave is not going to last very long, so the government needs to capitalise on it and come up with the right measures. Another reason that makes the sector outlook brighter is that more government properties will be released in the market," he said.

Ahmed Shaikhani, managing director of Shaikhani Group and president of Motor City in Karachi, said prices have been going up since the new government came into power as the confidence of local and foreign investors has improved.

"The government is coming up with some regulations; plus security and safety is improving, so prices are going up as a result. Hence, it's the right time to invest in Pakistan and the returns are very good," he added.

The Zameen.com chief said the leasing market is highly critical for the real estate market and called for new regulations for the growth of the leasing sector in the country.

"It is a cash-based economy and the leasing market's contribution to the GDP is less than 0.5 per cent. Until you make that feasible, you're not going to get price hikes," he said, adding that the government must come up with regulations ahead of the launch of five million houses for the poor.

"If you launch low-income housing, you need to make sure that it ends up with the right person. If it goes into the trading market, everything will end in chaos," he warned.

  10,000 New Property Developers Bring into the Pakistani Real Estate Market
Posted by: LRE-Azan - 09-14-2018 03:19 PM - No Replies

British-Pakistani property tycoon Aneel Musarrat on Wednesday said he was aiming to bring 10,000 new property developers into the Pakistani real estate market to take control away from a few people who decide everything about housing to “benefit themselves”.

Talking to a local media outfit, Musarrat, who is also a close friend and financier of Prime Minister Imran Khan, said that he would extend advice to PM Khan with regard to the Pakistani government’s plan to build five million houses without accepting a cabinet position.

There had been speculation that Musarrat and another UK-based businessman, Sahibzada Jahangir, may be given cabinet positions after their pictures with the PM went viral on social media.

Earlier on Monday, Musarrat reportedly attended a meeting chaired by the PM on the formulation of a roadmap to achieve the target of constructing five million houses across the country.

Musarrat, while speaking to a local media outlet, said, “I am doing profitable businesses in the United Kingdom and Europe. I am interested in Pakistan only because it’s the country of my origin and I want to give something back, not get anything.”



“I will not do any business and I will not get any money for advising Imran Khan’s task force on housing,” he added.

He explained, “The housing has to be for the poor people who have no chance otherwise of moving up the property ladder. They need support.”

“This year I plan to deliver 9,000 homes in the UK and the sale value of these houses will be over £2 billion. I am using my company’s housing development experts to advise Pakistani government,” he also said.

“The objective is to alleviate poverty and help Pakistan to recover economically. It’s an inward economy, with small capital required to buy homes,” he further explained.

“At least 10,000 new developers will enter the market to build 5 million homes,” Musarrat also said.

“I have proposed that if our plan is implemented, then six million jobs will be created for five million homes. Mortgages will be available to the customers that will enable the lower-middle and middle classes to afford new homes on easy payments through one window operation,” he also added.

“Buyers will be able to get mortgages like they do in Europe. Banks will provide loans but I have informed Imran Khan that the banking laws will have to change for this purpose and he agrees with the idea. This will bring radical improvements in the economy,” the businessman explained.

Musarrat also said that he would build hospitals for maternal care.

“I will be funding these hospitals through my charitable foundation based in the UK,” he said.

Musarrat is viewed as a close aide of PM Khan and has helped him and his sister Aleema Khan raise funds for Shaukat Khanum via fundraising events for almost 12 years.

He is listed as one of the richest people in the UK.

He had started his career as a small-time property dealer and eventually moving into construction and renting commercial properties.

On the other hand, Jahangir is Fauzia Kasuri’s elder brother and enjoys close proximity with the PM. He is also the premier’s adviser on overseas Pakistanis.

  Pakistan should target to become moderately developed country: Latest News
Posted by: LRE-Azan - 09-11-2018 02:53 PM - No Replies

ISLAMABAD: China’s march on the development path has revolutionised the concept of speedy and sustainable growth. The last four decades had witnessed transformation of China from the poverty-stricken and low development status to a major economic power of the world.

China is approaching the last stop of development and attaining the status of a modern and developed country. There is a lot of discussion on the development path of China, but less on its development model.

For a better understanding, there is a need to dive deep into the structure of development in all aspects – economy, governance and political structure.

History

China’s development is characterised by a set of principal contradictions starting right after the birth of new China in 1949. These contradictions are developed in accordance with the model of Karl Marx.

He believed that if contradictions are tackled, then it can help improve the economy and society otherwise it sets the path for revolution by sharpening the divide in the society.

Chairman Mao defined the first principal contradiction and brought the issue of contemporary China to the front. The major issue at that time was class difference. This contradiction was overcome at a huge cost of social rearrangements and restructuring. With the shackles of the past broken, it allowed coming generations to focus on other indicators of the economy and society to boost growth. Deng Xiaoping introduced the second principal contradiction in 1981. He described the contradiction as “the ever-growing material and cultural needs of people versus backward social production”.

The second contradiction reshuffled the economy and it led towards opening of the economy and society over the last four decades.

It considered it necessary to get rid of old systems of production, distribution and export strategy and move one step ahead. It was necessary to move on otherwise benefits of the first contradiction would be lost.

The world was invited to invest in China and benefit from cheap labour and production facilities. Multinational companies and other investors were encouraged and given special treatment for establishing business and production facilities.

Special economic and investment zones were created to speed up the process of development. Most significant element of the strategy was to move in a step-wise manner both in terms of openness, and growth and development of the country.

China first selected a few areas for implementation of this development model and moved to other areas later and this process is still ongoing. Along the course of time, China transformed from a world factory to a world laboratory. Today, the country is the second largest economy of the world and is expanding its economic and trade linkages by introducing new means of engagement after the “Go Global Policy”.

To consolidate its achievements, President Xi gave the third contradiction. He defined it as “unbalanced and inadequate development and the people’s ever-growing need for a better life”.

According to him, China has developed without giving due importance to environment, which has created many development, environmental and social problems. Although China pulled 700 million people out of poverty, still millions of people are suffering at different levels.

Xi has introduced the concept of eco-civilisation for sustainable development. He has also defined the path to modernisation and development and aspires to turn China into a moderately developed country by 2021 and a fully developed country by 2049.

Lessons for Pakistan

China’s model of development and transformation is associated with these principal contradictions. It can be a good learning point for Pakistan as it is also aspiring to become a developed and modern country.

Prime Minister Imran Khan has already expressed his interest in learning from China for rapid economic and social development.

Pakistan, at the moment, is between the first and second principal contradiction, which China has overcome. There are class differences, but not as rigid as they were during the first phase of China’s revolution.

Second, Pakistan’s production system is not as old as was the case in China. Pakistan has already witnessed first industrial revolution in the 1960s and later on. It has also tried to introduce industrial and business competitiveness with varying results.

However, we could not sequence our economic and social development path and lack a strategy, which can ensure it. Our worst mistake is the inability to ensure sustainability of economic policies, social reforms and development.

The industrial and privatisation policy of the 1960s failed when nationalisation was initiated in the 1970s. The policy framework once again changed a decade later with no planning. Despite the mistakes of the past, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has provided an excellent opportunity to learn from the Chinese development and governance model.

Although China is willing to provide help, Pakistan needs to strike a balance between social, economic and environmental development. It needs to sequence its development trajectory based on facts and figures.

People of Gwadar cannot be marginalised under ambitious development

People should be taken into confidence and there should not be any utopian promises of turning around the economy in five years.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government can put the economy on right track with the target of becoming a moderately developed country in the next 10 years.

Lastly, Pakistan must ensure continuity of policies. For this, it has to move towards consensus-based policy development rather than a majority-based policy.
