A Vision for Your Life

Pakistan Air Force is an elite defence force of Pakistan. The credit of this esteemed position; certainly, is attributable to the souls in blue uniform. PAF has always acknowledged the diehard commitment of its personnel and has always endeavored for their welfare. To provide a land to its men on easy installments is one of the chapters of PAF’s welfare projects. To achieve this purpose Directorate of Housing was tasked to conceptualize the project of Fazaia Housing Scheme Rawalpindi in 1989. Soon after the launch of Rawalpindi Housing Project, Fazaia Tarnol was also launched in the same year. Both the schemes were looked after by Directorate of Housing till it was envisaged that separate governing body is needed to expand the projects. With this vision in sight, Directorate of Estate Projects was established in 1996. The journey started with the development of Tarnol and Rawalpindi Projects. The entwining road of this journey had many twists and turns. Today, Fazaia Rawalpindi marks the success of the hard work put in by the officers and staff of this Directorate. As for now, 90% of the society has constructed houses and has gained a reputable value in the contemporary estate word.

The head of Directorate was nominated as Assistant Chief of Air Staff (Housing & Projects). Till date 11 ACAS have had the honour of steering this Directorate with utmost perseverance and insightful agility. A chronicle of these ACAS is tabulated as under:
