ISLAMABAD: In a bid to uplift the rural and suburban areas of the capital, the federal administration has approved a development project worth Rs600 million, informed Deputy Commissioner Islamabad Hamza Shafqaat.
A total of 47 sites including Chatta- Bakhtawar, Chak Shehzad, Sihala, village Alipur, village Choocha Sheikhan, Sharifabad, village Koral, Gohra Sardar, Shah Allah Ditta and others have been identified for development and renovations.
Due to absence of essentials like health facilities, education, clean water, and a better environment for those residing in rural and suburban areas, developmental projects like the up-gradation of roads, water supply, construction of new roads and construction of the drainage system will be introduced to provide quality living standards.
The project has been scheduled to start after a month.
The officials formulated two committees comprising an administrative committee, monitored by the assistant commissioners, and a political committee, which consists of local union councils of the capital to oversee the progress of the project.
