LAHORE: Chief Secretary Yousaf Naseem Khokhar has directed the Housing and Urban Development Department to prepare a comprehensive plan to regularise illegal housing societies in the province.
He issued these directions at a meeting at the office of Housing and Urban Development Department here on Thursday.
He said the improvement could be done by learning lessons from past mistakes. He said that there was a need to devise a strategy for permanent solution of problems related to illegal housing schemes.
He said public service delivery should be improved in Water and Sanitation Agencies, besides taking measures for the solarisation of water supply system. He said Rs200m had been allocated for solarisation in the annual budget.
He said the process of commercialisation in cities should be made easier through the use of information technology but it should only be allowed in designated areas after a proper planning.
