The Lahore Development Authority received a total of 26,222 new applications at One-Window Cell of. While they disposed off 24,210 applications during Aug-Dec 2020. In this period, the application approval rate of authority stood at 58% in comparison to 42% in the same period of 2019.

The Approval Rate of One Window applications, thus, increased by a considerable 15% in 2020. Which shows that LDA approved more than half number of applications.

In comparison to the previous year, the Lahore Development Authority issued nearly twice the number of NOCs, Transfer Letters and Building Plans. In 2020 (Aug-Dec), LDA issued a total of 2,828 NOCs and 2,219 Transfer Letters in comparison to the 1523 NOCs and 1,180 Transfer Letters respectively issued during the same period of the previous year.
