From May 16, 2022, the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has agreed to transfer and upload all documentation relating to plots filing to the National Radio and Telecommunication Corporation (NRTC) system.
A few years ago, the CDA’s wing, which deals with issues of people whose property has been taken by the authority and who are entitled to alternate plots filing, was subjected to several inquiries for fraudulent allotment cases. These incidents are currently being investigated by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA).
According to a CDA official from the information technology wing, all matters from the aforementioned wing and the estate management wing would be handled through the NRTC system.
He stated that all files will be traceable and accessible to all CDA personnel as a result of this. They will be able to monitor file movement and validity at any moment. The officer said that the applicant may verify the progress of their files using a tracking number.
“If this system is effectively managed, the possibilities of fraudulent and bogus allocation would be dramatically decreased,” the official said, adding that CDA faced a major scam of bogus and backdated plots filing allotment cases a few years ago, which is currently being investigated by FIA.
Meanwhile, according to a CDA statement dated May 6, all cases involving persons whose land has been purchased by CDA will be transferred to the NRTC, and the status of each case would be updated on a regular basis.
It went on to say that no plots filing should be moved without first being entered into the NRTC system. The NRTC system should be used to transmit all new and current cases to the accounting office.
