Sangar housing project is a Government of Balouchistan project, announced in early 1990 by the then Dy Commissioner Jan Muhammad Dashti, and development work started in 1992. It is a unique project and there is no alternate of it. We can compare it with any project not only in Pakistan, but may be in Asia. This project is on a hill known as Kohâ€“e-Batal and it has 7 km (L) x 2.5 km (W) x 280 feet (H). Its east, west & south sides have sea and at north is Gwadar town. Due to sea on its three sides no dust could reach here. It is quite and calm area far away from any disturbances. DCO Gwadar is the Project Director, who was in power to give the provisional allotment. A Consultant group is also hired. All contracts for the development of project is awarded to a firm M/S SECO based at Karachi.
At initial stage 1st phase of the project took place with the cooperation of Muslim Commercial Bank Gwadar Branch. There were plots having size of 400 sq/yd, 600 sq/yd and 1000 sq/yd residential soon project got famous and it attracts people all over Pakistan. Most of the locals sold out their plots to non-locals and due to lack of interest of locals many peoples all over Pakistan got allotment and get possession order from DCO after payment of all dues. But even then till 2000 this project was not so famous like other Housing projects in Pakistan’s urban areas. The people only got allotment of plots due to its beautiful sea view and speedily development work at there. Almost all development work in Phase-I was completed up till 1997. Thereafter, many people requested for allotment and showed their interest at here, keeping in view of public demand Phase-II, Phase-III and Phase-IV were announced.
Sangar Housing Scheme – Sea view
After the stone breaking ceremony of deep water port and Coastal High way the project got famous and prices of a commercial plot shot up to 70 lakhs in 2003. Due to the hike in price, it attracted many people and also the native of Balouchistan showed their graveness that why others got the plot. Govt. cancelled the scheme in November 2003. There was lot of investment of people, who were allotted plots in 1992 or thereafter and some people also purchased the plot at very high cost. Few of allottees went to the Balochistan High Court against Govt. decision. Court took a decision in favor of allottees and restored the Society on 27 June 2004. After court decision being no hurdles people started buying the plots, but there was another hurdle that DCO could not transfer the plot in absence of proper transfer notification. Ultimately in 1st week of February 2005 Notification for transfer of plot at Sangar was issued. Consultant Group also announced and
published in newspapers that proper transfer will took place by 9th April 2005. They advised the people to submit their case for transfer.
