SC Reserves Judgment on F-14 and F-15 Plot Allotment

The Supreme Court of Pakistan has reserved its judgment on petitions challenging the Islamabad High Court’s (IHC) decision to annul the new policy for allotting plots in sectors F-14 and F-15 to government officials.

A three-member bench led by Justice Munib Akhtar heard the final arguments before reserving the judgment.

The IHC had declared the plot allotment policy unconstitutional, citing it as discriminatory and not in the public interest.

The Supreme Court’s involvement came after appeals by affected government employees. During the hearing, the Additional Attorney General argued that the IHC overstepped its jurisdiction and misinterpreted the law.

The petitioners claimed the policy favored a select group, while the government stressed its necessity for providing housing to employees.

The decision is eagerly awaited as it will set a precedent for future housing policies.
