Ministry of Religious Affairs Employees Cooperative Housing Society (MORAECHS) is a registered society under the ICT department of co-operative societies. Its registration number as per ICT records is 314. It has its housing projects in Lahore and Multan, and presently it is launching its new housing scheme in Islamabad.
An advertisement was published in daily jang regarding booking of residential plots in MORAECHS, and it read “Coming Soon”. Since it is a co-operative society by the employees of a government department, people are showing keen interest in this project. We are sharing the available information on the background and legality of this society, so that our readers can have better understanding of this upcoming housing project.
According to the advertisement, a new housing scheme of MORAECHS is coming soon at the junction of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, and it is going to open bookings of 5 marla, 7 marla, 10 marla and 1 kanal residential plots on installments.
As per ICT records, this new housing scheme is currently in process of Land Acquisition. After completion of required land procurement process, the site plan will be submitted to CDA for LOP approval. After the layout plan approval, the society will do the needful, and apply for NOC. After the NOC is issued by CDA, the society will be eligible to sell its plots and carry out further development work.
It is quite possible that MORAECHS may already have worked out on the pre-requisites before this public advertisement, however LOP and NOC are still to be issued by CDA.
Following is a copy of ICT record of MORAECHS:
As you can see above, MORAECHS has very small projects in Lahore and Multan comprising 80 kanals and 9 kanals 8 malra respectively. Both projects have their LOPs approved by relevant housing authorities, while this new housing project in Islamabad is still under process of land acquisition.
You may also have noticed that the given Location of MORAECHS is Zone 5 Islamabad. As we already know that Zone 5 starts after Gulberg Islamabad, and many major housing schemes fall in that area including DHA.
We have attached the master plan map of Islamabad below with distinct zone colors
The pink colored area is Zone 5, and it lies around Islamabad Highway, Kahuta Road and GT Road. As the sponsors have given a hint that it is located at the junction of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, it is essentially going to be somewhere on GT Road near Rawat. We will share exact location map as soon as it is officially released by the Society.
The society claims to offer residential plots at low cost, while numerous facilities and amenities will be provided to the residents of MORAECHS.
There is no further information available regarding total project area, development plan, plot prices and installment term of Ministry of Religious Affairs Employees Cooperative Housing Society. We will update this page after we receive more concrete information on the project through official sources, so stay tuned !
