ABANDONMENT OF PUBLIC HOUSING PROJECTS WITHIN REAL ESTATE SECTOR OF PAKISTAN
Complex processes and relationships between various actors and practices leave public housing projects in the state of abandonment. In Pakistan, the laws offered by the government at federal and provincial levels have not yet administered the abandoned housing and real estate sector. Despite the development strategies, the deserted housing schemes are common in cities, leaving purchasers as the actual victims to get affected adversely socially and economically and act as factors of slow down for the national economic growth. This paper discusses the gaps to address the challenges and issues associated with abandoned housing projects as well as regulating residential properties within the real estate sector in Pakistan. A scarce yet considerable
literature was reviewed along with primary data in form of semi-structured interviews, for describing the body knowledge to highlight the several dimensions of housing adornment in the context of public projects.
