Simultaneously, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between RDA and the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) for the implementation of the e-filing and office automation system (EFOAS) was also sanctioned.
This system is poised to streamline administrative processes, facilitating a seamless transition to a paperless office environment in the public sector. It ensures digital accessibility to all official correspondences round-the-clock, optimizing the management of daily tasks. Chairing the meeting, Commissioner Rawalpindi Division Liaquat Ali Chatha commended the agreement with Nadra, emphasizing its critical role in ensuring the transparency and legitimacy of property transfers.
In addition, the governing body approved reserve prices for billboards and the RDA parking plaza, proposed by the price assessment committee. This move is expected to escalate revenue generation by a significant 100%.
Moreover, the RDA endorsed a decision originating from the Capital Development Authority (CDA), stipulating that the processing of housing schemes and commercial buildings identified within Islamabad’s limits, as delineated by the Survey of Pakistan, will be handled by the CDA.
Concluding the meeting, the governing body also greenlit the refund of fees collected by the RDA for ongoing building plan cases, underscoring the commitment to procedural efficacy and fairness.
