Law enforcement agencies either federal or provincial should also take stringent measure to take action against Fake housing societies, owner and developers.... because SIFC,s basic purpose is to attract foreign investors and companies to invest in Pakistan.But Unfortunately different fraud people and societies looted them and it is a black spot on whole system.So my humble request is to kindly Law inforsement agencies should also take MI,ISI onboard to take Strict action.
