Land for lawyers’ colony ordered
Land for lawyers’ colony ordered

MIANWALI, Jan 25: The Lahore High Court has ordered allotment of 225 kanals of land for establishment of a residential colony for lawyers near PAF Road here.

The District Bar Association had initiated its effort for the establishment of a residential colony many years ago. In 1986, the then deputy commission earmarked 225 kanals out of a chunk of land measuring 525 kanals near PAF Road but final allotment could not be made as the matter remained pending with the revenue department and the Board of Revenue.

In 2010, the Punjab government decided to sell state land to meet its financial needs and the same 525-kanal chunk of land was
placed on the sell-off list.

The DBA president filed a writ petition before the Lahore High Court to stop the auction of the said land and instead order establishment of a residential colony for lawyers.

On Wednesday, Justice Khalid Mehmood Khan accepted the petition and ordered that 225 kanals of land earmarked for the purpose in 1986 be allotted to the DBA at the rate of Rs10,000 per marla. The court also formed a committee consisting of the colonies department secretary, DCO and the DBA president to oversee the implementation of the order within six months.

The bar members have praised the efforts of DBA president Zafar Iqbal Khan as well as former presidents Sanaullah Khan and Sikandar Khan in this regard.
