Islamabad: Muhammad Naveed Malik, Acting President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce & Industry said that the local traders had been demanding for promulgation of new rent control act for Islamabad for the last three decades, but still no progress was made to meet this very old demand.
He said the absence of rent control act has made Islamabad the costlier city of Pakistan due to which it was not affordable for a middle class person to live in the federal capital.
He was talking to a delegation of local traders that called on him led by Ajmal Baloch, President, Markazi Anjuman-e-Tijaran and Traders Action Committee Islamabad.
