He clarified that a housing project cannot be considered legal or approved without first obtaining a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from RDA. By advertising such projects sans the requisite approvals, the marketing firm was deceiving the public, he added. Such projects are often falsely portrayed as already approved and legal when being marketed or promoted. The company has been directed to immediately halt the advertising of these illegal ventures.

Residents have also been urged to verify status of any housing project on RDA’s official website, www.rda.gop.pk, as per the DG’s instructions.
