Mian Muhammad Aslam Iqbal, Punjab’s Minister for Housing and Urban Development, approved the launch of three low-cost housing societies on Thursday.

This was announced at the 86th meeting of the Punjab Housing and Town Planning Agency (PHATA) board, which was presided over by the Housing Minister, at the agency’s office.

These housing schemes will offer locals access to high-quality, low-cost homes:


  1. Al-Rasheed Garden, Gujranwala
  2. Al-Noor Garden Residencia, Sangla Hill
  3. Campbellpur Greens, Attock  

According to The News, a monitoring committee was also formed to oversee the housing developments. The delegates also agreed on the development of pension laws for PHATA workers, as well as other administrative issues.

Furthermore, in each of the housing complexes, a 20 per cent quota was set aside for the Naya Pakistan Housing Program (NPHP).


The Minister stressed the need of assisting developers in order to promote a smooth working environment and stated that corruption or dishonesty will not be allowed in his team.

He went on to say that the NPHP is a key priority for the province administration and that it intends to finish as many housing schemes as feasible in the shortest amount of time.

Earlier this month, the Housing Minister stated his aim to accelerate the creation of low-cost housing projects, saying, “Low-cost housing schemes should be finished quickly by working day and night.”

He also stated that a special cell will be established to encourage foreign Pakistanis to engage in the housing business.
