Zone-4 and ICT Regulation 1992

It is significant that Zone-4 permits residential housing projects and agro-farming in accordance with the ICT (Zoning) Regulation, 1992 (modified in 2010). Following the completion of all necessary procedures, it grants permissions for these projects.

Keeping vigilant for Unauthorized Schemes

Furthermore, the civic agency strongly objected to housing project advertising and marketing without a proper NOC. These actions are considered illegal and unapproved, and marketing firms are severely prohibited from deceptively promoting illegal housing projects.

Additionally, it prohibits sponsors of such schemes from selling or developing housing projects unless they have obtained the necessary NOC from Capital Development Authority.
