RDA Takes Action Against Unauthorized Commercial Constructions in Rawalpindi
The Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) recently successfully operated against unauthorized and illegal commercial constructions in the Minara Residencia area of Mouza Kotha Kalan. The RDA enforcement squad, acting under the Punjab Development of Cities Act 1976, took decisive action by sealing high-rise commercial buildings and issuing legal notices to the property owner, Khayal Zaman. These measures were implemented due to violations of approved plans, the PDC Act 1976, and the RDA Building and Zoning Regulations 2020. The RDA’s Director General (DG) has emphasized the need for strict action against encroachments and unauthorized commercial activities.
The RDA’s Operation and Legal Action
In a proactive move to uphold urban planning regulations and maintain the integrity of the cityscape, the Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) recently launched an operation against illegal commercial constructions in the Minara Residencia area of Mouza Kotha Kalan. Under section 39 of the Punjab Development of Cities Act 1976, the RDA enforcement squad sealed high-rise commercial buildings constructed without proper approval and No Objection Certificates (NOCs).
Notices were also issued to the property owner, Khayal Zaman, who was found to have violated approved plans/maps, the PDC Act 1976, and the RDA Building and Zoning Regulations 2020. These violations underscore the importance of adhering to the established guidelines to ensure the safety and sustainability of the city’s infrastructure.

Significance of the RDA’s Actions
The RDA’s operation against illegal commercial constructions in Minara Residencia carries significant implications for the development and future of Rawalpindi. By enforcing the Punjab Development of Cities Act 1976, the RDA aims to curb unauthorized construction, which can harm the city’s infrastructure, traffic management, and overall aesthetics.
Moreover, issuing legal notices to property owners, such as Khayal Zaman, reinforces the notion that compliance with approved plans and regulations is imperative. It serves as a reminder to all stakeholders that violating construction regulations will not be tolerated and will result in legal consequences.
RDA’s Focus on Encroachments and Unauthorized Constructions
The RDA’s Director General has placed significant emphasis on addressing encroachments and unauthorized constructions within the city. The enforcement of strict measures against such activities is a crucial step towards preserving the city’s infrastructure, ensuring public safety, and maintaining an organized urban environment.
To tackle this issue effectively, the Building Control Wing has been instructed to conduct a comprehensive survey to identify illegal commercial buildings within the controlled area of the RDA. This survey will aid in the identification of structures that do not conform to approved plans and lack the necessary NOCs.
The Rawalpindi Development Authority’s recent operation against unauthorized commercial constructions in the Minara Residencia area highlights its commitment to maintaining planned urban development. By sealing high-rise commercial buildings and issuing legal notices to property owners who violated approved plans and regulations, the RDA sets an example for responsible construction practices.
