CDA Greenlights Land Lease for GIKI Islamabad Campus


The Board of the Capital Development Authority (CDA) has sanctioned the lease of a parcel of land for the Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute (GIKI) of Engineering, Sciences, and Technology, allowing it to establish a new campus in Islamabad.

The approval came after discussions led by the Member (Planning & Development), culminating in the decision to allocate a plot of land measuring 645’x680’ (which is roughly 80 Kanals or 10 Acres). This plot is located next to the space designated for SUPARCO, covering partial areas of Plot Nos. 22, 23, & 24 within the Kuri Agro Farming Scheme (Concept Plan), Zone-4 of Islamabad.

Several stipulations accompany the land allocation for the GIK Institute. To begin with, CDA’s Planning Wing will integrate the designated land into the master layout plan.

Following this, the Estate Wing is tasked with disposing of the land in accordance with established regulations and procedures, ensuring compliance with all requirements as stipulated by the ILDR2005/ CDA Policy. Additionally, the Building Control Wing must ratify the construction plans in line with regulatory standards. The Finance Wing, on its part, is responsible for appraising the land’s value prior to issuing the allotment letter.

Moreover, the GIK Institute is obligated to secure a Federal Charter for the operation of their campus within the Islamabad Capital Territory. It is also mandatory for them to gain endorsement from the Higher Education Commission (HEC) for the campus’s establishment in Islamabad and to obtain the Federal Cabinet’s consent as per the ILDR, 2005 regulations.

The Board has further resolved that henceforth, the land allocation for university plots will be standardized to a maximum of 10 Acres.
