Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan took notice of unnecessary delays in the issuance of NOCs for the construction of high rise buildings and directed authorities to take immediate steps to ensure the issuance of NOCs within the given timelines to extend maximum facilitation to private investors.
He chaired a meeting of the Local Government and Rural Development Department on Monday.
CM Mahmood said the provincial government had promulgated laws and put in place a regularity regime for attracting maximum private sector investment, adding that implementation of laws in letter and spirit was the foremost responsibility of the concerned departments and entities.
He warned that in case of any negligence, or any unnecessary hurdle for private investment, the responsible ones would be taken to task and no one would be spared.
The provincial chief executive further said hurdles were being created instead of facilitation for private investors at lower level which could not be tolerated.
