During the meeting, both parties reached a consensus that the CDA would officially declare the pending BuP Award for the C-16 sector within a two-month timeframe. This agreement with the residents of sector C-16 aimed at addressing the concerns of local inhabitants. Also offering transparency regarding their property compensation.

Allocation of Plots in Exchange for Constructed Properties
