Development Works Status

The development works in Kashmir Model Town Chakri Road Rawalpindi were carried out in 1990 in Phase I and II. Since then no further development seen.

However,
Phase III should have developed to date and the work done in Phase-I and II as time went on and the non-construction of houses by the allottees, the development work has been dilapidated.


That said, ongoing Management has started the repair and rehabilitation works in Kashmir Model Town in Phase-I and II.

In addition, utility services like electricity are available in phases I and II. 

In addition, some security staff was also put there to make the model town a safe place to live.

A question people get asked?

Is a willing allottee able to build a house in KMT now?

Our short answer to this question is always ‘Yes’.

(Because

a 10-Marla MODEL HOUSE already built in KMT to attract the attention of those allottees of KMT who intend to build a house).

However, most allottees of this project belong to either far-flung areas of Azad Jammu & Kashmir or are not willing to build a house immediately due to some utilities not being present in KMT Rawalpindi.

Possession Status

Possessions of the plot are given to the allottees. Security arrangements have been made.

With that, a model house has been constructed in the Scheme to attract the members to construct their homes.

Kashmir Model Town: (Latest News)

Escalation Charges Imposed

Recently, the ongoing management of the society has decided to start dilapidated development works in the KMT.

The allottees demand that expedite the development works in the society.

Why? Because the allottees can get possessions of their plots.

With that, the managing committee (MC) imposed escalation development charges.

For the Residential plot, the escalation charge imposed was Rs.1200 per sq. yds and for the commercial plot was Rs.2200 per sq yds.

With that said, allottees are to pay the escalation charges in 6 equal instalments. It starts on 10 June 2020 and ends on 10 September 2021.

Conclusion

Above all,

The Kashmir Model Town housing scheme is the first housing project launched by the Jammu & Kashmir Cooperative Housing Society (JKCHS Society). With that, Khayaban e Kashmir was launched.

KMT consists of 3 phases namely (Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3).

The Rawalpindi Development Authority (RDA) has decided to start work on the project after the ban on construction.

Hence, as the prices in this housing project are low as compared to vicinity so buying for making a dream home as well as investing for the best return-on-investment (ROI) is recommended.

Jammu & Kashmir Society give a 10% discount to allottees who paid escalation in total.
