Usman mentioned the auction’s strong start in a subsequent tweet. A total of Rs. 1.3 billion was paid for two plots in I-14 Markaz. He also mentioned that a plot in I-8 Markaz with a reserved price of Rs. 1.2 billion is probably going to fetch Rs. 1.5 billion at auction.
Separately, Captain (r) Muhammad Usman Younis, a BS-20 officer of the Pakistan Administrative Service (PAS), was let go from his position yesterday as a result of a conflict of interest between a prominent businessman and a local politician.
Since August of last year, he has held the positions of Chief Commissioner and Chairman of CDA in Islamabad. He must report to the Establishment Division right away, according to a notification the Cabinet Secretariat sent out yesterday.
