On the instruction of Chief Minister of Baluchistan Jam Kamal Khan, the residents of Kalanchi area were given notices by Gwadar Development Authority (GDA) and asked to present their property papers otherwise their houses will be demolished after one week.
Its worth mentioning that Kalanchi neighborhood is one of the significant housing projects in Gwadar city. The people have been residing in the locality since the year 1985 and has exceeded to an estimated 3000 residents currently. It runs parallel to Shambay Samail area and is located at a distance of nine kilometers from Gwadar Port. Although the area is located at prime location, the locality is devoid of basic facilities such as electricity and water.
The Board of Revenue in year 2007 and 2013 had termed this locality and the areas of Shambay Samail and Southern Ankara as illegal. Therefore, these areas were taken over by the Government of Baluchistan. Currently, on the directives of the Chief Minister, the residents of Kalanchi were asked to move out of the settlement. Moreover the administration has been asked to make arrangements for their readjustments into new settlements on which work has already been started.
The residents have been given a duration of one week to move out from this locality as after this demolition of houses will be carried out.
