Rawalpindi Development Authority gave the project NOC in the initial phase. Later, a dispute grew as the result of District Council Rawalpindi having some conflict with it over the area of jurisdiction.
Here is a brief overview of the Blue World City NOC status.
Importance of NOC for a Residential Project
NOC holds a significant role in any project. The proof of legitimacy authorizes the project owners and developers to work according to the rules and regulations set by local and federal authorities.
Real estate development projects are given NOCs to help them work smoothly and without any legal hurdles. It ensures that the company is working according to the guidelines set by authorities. If a residential project doesn’t have a NOC, it means that it is not legitimate.
Blue World City – NOC Approval
The efforts for the development of Blue World City Islamabad began with the issuance of NOC. The management filed an application to get a NOC for the project. At that time, the responsible authority was Rawalpindi Development Authority which issued a NOC for BWC vide ‘DA/MP&TF/F-PHS-PTR-10/148.’
This no-objection certificate was issued on February 19, 2019. The initial permission was that of acquisition of 427 kanal land for development purposes. The problem grew when there was an issue regarding the jurisdiction of RDA and the District Council. Misinformation regarding this project was spread, telling the investors that it had been deemed illegal.
Later, all this settled down, and District Council recognized its NOC. The District Council also give it permission to acquire more area for developmental purposes.
