The Islamabad High Court (IHC) Thursday declared the No Objection Certificate (NOC) given to Park View City Housing Society as illegal and void.
In this matter, a single bench of IHC comprising Chief Justice of IHC Justice Athar Minallah issued written judgment and declared that land acquired under the Ordinance of 1960 vests in the State and it cannot be used, directly or indirectly, in violation of the scheme and provisions thereof.
The IHC Chief Justice noted that the planning and development of acquired land is subject to and confined to the scheme prepared under sections 12, 13 and 14 ibid.
Its use, directly or indirectly, for the benefit of a private profit making entity or person is contrary to public interest and policy, violation of constitutionally guaranteed rights of the public at large and thus without lawful authority and jurisdiction.
Cheif Justice IHC declared in the verdict, “The No Objection Certificate was thus illegal, void and issued without lawful authority and jurisdiction.”
He added that the acts of the Company regarding the acquired land were and continue to be illegal, void and in violation of fundamental rights of public at large and in breach of public interest.
The bench, therefore, directed the Capital Development Authority (CDA) and the chief commissioner, Islamabad Capital Territory to forthwith remove all the obstructions or any other construction attributed to the Company on the acquired land, while the Authority shall forthwith resume the land so far developed by the Company under regulation 22 of the Revised Modalities and Procedure, 2020.
The judgment also said: “The Chief Commissioner shall, forthwith, ensure that the land of the Housing Scheme is demarcated and all the complaints regarding land grabbing, obstructing rights of way and other property rights of the citizens are attended to and resolved in accordance with the law.”
It further said that the deputy commissioner shall put in place an effective mechanism to redress the complaints of citizens affected by the illegal activities and actions of the Company or those acting on its behalf while the DC shall ensure that urgent measures are taken to prevent the phenomenon of land grabbing and other violations of property rights in the unacquired land, inter alia, in the light of the report submitted before this Court.
