Supreme Court Employees Housing Society SCEHS
The Capital Development Authority (CDA) has cancelled the preliminary scrutiny certificate of the Supreme Court Employees Cooperative Society (SCECS) forthwith. Under the Cooperative Societies Law, the SCECS was issued preliminary security certificate in early 90s after it furnished with the authority evidence for the ownership of 30 percent of the land where housing project was to be carried out.Â After obtaining the scrutiny certificate that is considered mandatory for the launch of a housing project in the federal capital, the society was supposed to acquire a compact piece of land measuring 800 kanals within a predetermined period in line with the CDA rules.
But the Society could acquire only scattered pieces of land and that too less than 800 kanals in the given period. And this forced the civic body to withdraw the scrutiny certificate.
In the meantime, the society reportedly sold hundreds of plots to people without issuing proper allotment letters, with allottees knowing nothing about the fate of their money. When contacted, Brig Nusratullah, the CDA member (Planning and Designing), confirmed to The Post the cancellation of the scrutiny certificate to the SCECS.
