The officials of the Cabinet Division, Government of Pakistan, got together some years ago and founded their own organization in order to provide decent and affordable housing to its members, and registered it with the government as the Cabinet Division Employees Cooperative Housing Society Regd. (CDECHS).
Initially the CDECHS was meant for making plots available only to employees of the Cabinet Division but later on persistent public pressure, the Society opened for its membership to employees of all ministries/divisions in Islamabad. Recently it has reserved 20 percent of the available plots for private citizens too. Presently it is one of the prime housing societies in Islamabad.
In view of the privileged location of the CDECHS in the main housing sectors of Islamabad, the Society is bound to follow the rules and regulations prescribed for purpose of town planning by the Capital Development Authority (CDA). The CDA has already granted the Society permission for scheme development vide its No. CDA/PLW-UP (90) Cab. Div. /ECHS/93/3773 dated 23 December 1993.
Broadly speaking, the Society will arrange all basic facilities, such as primary and secondary school/parks, healthy centres, a community centre, mosque, commercial areas, playgrounds, a sports club and a graveyard. The development of the housing scheme will cover provision of utilities like electricity, gas, independence water supply and a proper drainage and sewerage system. Connection points to all of the utilities will be provided at each door step of the developed plot.
