Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting, Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan says construction of housing units under Naya Pakistan Housing Program will provide shelter to the poor people.
In a series of tweets on Friday, she said the procedure will be simplified besides extending facilitation to those associated with the construction sector.
Firdous Ashiq Awan said abolition of sales tax during the construction phase, reduction of capital value tax, imposition of fixed tax and issuance of e-statement papers will prove to be an important milestone in taking forward the construction sector.
She said procedures pertaining to approvals and NOCs are being cut to a great extent.
She was confident that the development of construction sector will generate economic activity and create immense job opportunities for the youth.
