ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan Thursday while calling the retrieval of forest land from land grabbers and encroachers as the government’s priority, directed the authorities concerned for urgent steps to multiply the country’s forest cover through forestation on the encroached land.

The prime minister, chairing a meeting of the National Coordinating Committee (NCC) on Housing, Construction and Development, said it was essential to curb the unauthorised use of land and restrict horizontal sprawl of housing societies.

Such measures would ensure food security and ease the provision of better civic amenities like water and sewerage, he added. The prime minister directed that the findings of the cadastral survey should be shared with the provinces which should be followed by swift action to retrieve public property.

He also instructed the provinces as well as the Capital Development Authority (CDA) to determine as how much land was encroached in the past and the ratio of the recovery. The prime minister declared to personally chair the fortnightly meetings to review the progress on retrieval of the encroached land.

He underlined that the government was accountable to the people of Pakistan and it was its top priority to protect the state land. Emphasised a systematic approach to deal with land mafia, the prime minister directed the Chairman CDA to create a special cell to save valuable public land marked for parks and forests.

Earlier, the prime minister was told that the Surveyor General of Pakistan was working in active coordination with the CDA, Punjab government and Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) to complete the cadastral records of government properties, Islamabad, Lahore and those of ETPB.

The meeting was attended by Advisor on Finance Shaukat Fayyaz Tarin, State Minister on Information and Broadcasting Farrukh Habib, SAPM on Climate Change Malik Amin Aslam, SAPM on Political Communication Dr Shehbaz Gill, Governor State Bank Dr Reza Baqir and senior officers concerned. The Chief Secretary of Punjab and senior officers concerned from the Punjab government joined the meeting via video link.
