Islamabad The Beautiful

Islamabad is beautiful. It is a region-wide symbol of progress, innovation and architectural marvel.

Settlement in Islamabad, the new capital after Karachi, began in the 1960s. As the city was newly founded, the growth of the population was slow. Being the seat of the Government of Pakistan, initially government servants and employees of the federal administration settled here. Since then, there has been a steady growth in the population of the city, which has swelled to somewhere in excess of a million inhabitants. The reason: at the moment, the capital city is the fastest growing urban settlement in the country. There is an increased interest in the city from The President and The Prime Minister, as well as a renewed drive from foreign investors to invest in the city. This has caused a growth in the economy, produced employment at all levels and ensured development. Owing to all these factors, Islamabad is now becoming a lively and bustling metropolis, full of vibrancy.| Read more

CDA finalized for provision of more healthy facilities in sports grounds of Islamabad

Islamabad: September 11, 2014 Capital Development Authority (CDA) has finalized the project of up-gradation, renovation and provision of more healthy facilities in different sports grounds of Islamabad  to facilitate the residents of Federal Capital.
In this connection Chairman CDA, Maroof Afzal has directed the concerned formations to finalize the details of this public welfare project, so that after the evaluation of suggestions, project could be approved.

Under this project, different sports grounds of Islamabad would not only be up-graded with the collaboration of private sector but also its daily maintenance and provision of all facilities will be the responsibility of private sector. Earlier, these grounds were running down and due to scarcity of funds these grounds could not be maintained properly. In the interest of public welfare, CDA decided to carry out this project with collaboration of private sector.

In this regard, CDA called expression of interest from private sector through print media advertisement, in response of which, five different companies showed their interest and agreed on not only to maintain, cutting of grass on regular basis, provision of security and sanitary staff but will also be responsible for the beautification, maintenance, up-gradation, provision of electricity and payment of electricity dues on regular basis. Moreover, provision of well designed benches, dustbins and allied facilities would also be ensured by the concerned company and CDA will not bear any cost on the maintenance of these grounds. In response these companies will be allowed to display their advertisement on specific places in these grounds without disturbing the beautification of ground and it will also be ensured that these advertisements will not be hurdle to sports activities. Companies will be bound to advertise in limited area. The funds generated through this advertisement would be used on the maintenance of these grounds.

CDA has constituted a committee comprising upon Director General Sports and Culture, Director Municipal Administration and Chief Landscape Architect which will evaluate and finalize these suggestions submitted by different companies for final approval.  

Moreover, a spokesman of the CDA has said that all the facilities provided in the capital are for the welfare of the residents and interest of the private sectors in the maintenance of these grounds reflects their commitment towards social responsibilities. CDA welcomes all positive suggestions which improve the conditions of sports grounds so that healthy opportunities could be provided to the residents especially the youth. He said that the companies will only be responsible for up-gradation and maintenance of these grounds whereas these grounds will remain open and free for general public without any discrimination. He further said that the basic purpose behind the up-gradation of these grounds is to provide sports facilities to the residents of all sectors. He further said that these companies will not only deposit the security but will not be allowed to made any encroachment except to advertise in limited area. | Read more
