Encroachment, Continues!

Stalls.jpgDespite Capital Development Authority’s anti-encroachment department’s best efforts Islamabad’s busiest Aabpara Market remains the scene of mass encroachments. We have tried to bring up this issue every once in a while here on the blog. The latest scheme of events show no omen of betterment.

Illegal stalls and shops extended to the pavements are an inconvenience for shoppers who hardly find room to walk comfortably. Stalls displaying footwear, clothes, hosiery and toys besides fruit and vegetables occupy a major potion of the market and all of them are encroachments.

A committee formed by the CDA to address the matter proved less use as corruption led to its failure

The shopkeepers also play their part in encouraging encroachment, by allowing stalls in front of their shops. In turn they charge a monthly rent that ranges from Rs 3,000 to Rs 4,000.
