The Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has just announced the launch of the Naya Pakistan Housing Scheme an idea that will be implemented by building and supplying 5 million houses for the common citizens of Pakistan and if the Idea is in fact implemented then this could be a great success both for the Government and its people as it will also provide job opportunities for the common man.
After the announcement, NADRA has now issued forms for the housing scheme and the project has started in seven districts which include Islamabad, Sukkur, Faislabad, Gilgit, Muzaffrabad, Swat and Quetta.
It seems to be an important project to complete for the new government with its main objective being to supply 5 million cost-effective houses and to provide at least 6 Million jobs across the government’s 5 year tenure. The project which seems like a hard or almost impossible task to complete is one of the main objectives for the government this term. PM Imran Khan created a task force during the third week in power who had the sole purpose of providing the new government with ideas and suggestions within a week and after discussions and finalization the government has finally launched this initiative and the government will be in charge of providing the necessary land and capital for the project as well as also supervising the whole project themselves. The government will make sure that a suitable environment for the public and private sectors is provided to them to execute the project with accuracy and efficiency.
The Prime Minister also believe that if this project is successfully completed than the project can help in providing as many as 6 million jobs and can also help in creating demand in the 40 or so industries that are involved in building & attract FDI as mentioned in his twitter post
So who can apply for this project and how can one apply in it?
According to the eligibility criteria of the scheme only one person per family is eligible to apply in this project. Other requirements state that only candidates who do not own any independent residential unit in Pakistan will be able to avail this benefit and that the homes are to be provided to the common man who ears in between 10,000rs-25000rs.
