Many builders constructed housing societies on illegal lands and managed to get away with it. This activity had become normal until the chief justice of Pakistan decided to take action. The Sindh building authority has declared several housing societies illegal and has ordered people not to invest in these societies.
Surjani Dream City
Surjani dream city is a project of Promise land developers and builders. It is located in one of the prime localities of Karachi, on the main Surjani road, and is next to the Sujrani police station. Moreover, it is also easily accessible from Superhighway and the Link Road. Sujrani dream city is built on 45.72 acres of land and is modernly built using advanced technology. Moreover, the plots were extremely affordable, and they offered several installment programs to make payment easier. However, Surjani’s dream city has been declared illegal and might soon be demolished.
Green Land City
The green land city is another large-scale project that has been declared illegal in 2022. This city is located on the National highway and can be accessed through a link road. It is near Gadap town, located north of Karachi, and is Karachi’s biggest town. The green land city was one of Karachi’s best housing societies with state-of-the-art facilities. However, action against the green land city has been taken as it is built on illegal land.
AGS Employees Cooperative Housing Society
AGS employee’s cooperative housing society is located in scheme 33. This scheme has emerged as one of the prime localities of Karachi, with several housing projects being developed there. Plots in the AGS employee’s cooperative housing society were extremely reasonable, and they offered installment programs with nominal monthly payments. The target audience for this housing society was the people working in that area, allowing them to live in a modern housing society while also being near their offices.
Chapel Luxury Villas
Chapel luxury villas are located in Kaiser Town Karachi. It consists of modern and luxurious villas built to give their residents a high living standard. Moreover, Chapel luxury villas were planned to be a gated community with 24/7 camera surveillance to ensure a secure living space. This housing society provided several facilities and recreational areas, including a shopping mall, parks, and a masjid. The developers of Chapel luxury villas are experienced constructors and have made several other projects that have been successful. However, Chapel luxury villas have been blacklisted, and investing in this housing society is not allowed.
Pearl Villas Surjani Town
Peal Villas is a high-budget project located in Surjani Town Karachi. It is a project of metropolitan builders and developers. Different villas are available in this housing society ranging from 80 square feet to 120 square feet. The prices of these plots are affordable but still higher in comparison to those in low-income housing schemes. This housing society includes all basic facilities and also underground sewerage pipes. It has all the features required to make it a luxurious housing society except for the most important part, an NOC. The Sindh development authority has not approved this housing society; hence no matter how beautifully built it is, it cannot be lived in.
Saima Green Valley
Saima green valley is a residential society located in Gadap Town Karachi near the Malir district. This is one of the prime localities of Karachi, and there are numerous housing societies located in this area. Saima green valley is built over a vast land area and has different sizes of plots available. This housing society is the latest housing society that has been declared illegal.
Many people have lost their investments because they invested in a housing society later declared illegal. Therefore before investing, you must verify the papers to avoid investing in an illegal society.
