The Ministry of Urban Development intends to build nearly ten thousand residential units across the country.
The minister Dr. Hassan Abdullahi said about 312 apartments would be built in Khushal Khan town of city Kabul that would cost approximately one billion and three hundred million Afghanis.
Buyers of the homes will pay the amount in four stages, Abdullahi mentioned.
He also noticed efforts were underway for building a canal system to serve the needs of the city of Kabul.
The efforts to build a standard canal system will begin once and if the ministry gets access to financial support, the deputy minister Amruddin Salak said.
Lack of safe drinking water, adequate shelter, a standard canal system, transportation, power, too much pollution and lack of greenery are among the major challenges to Kabul residents.
Based on article 14 of Afghanistan’s constitution, the government is responsible to take necessary measures to provide shelters for the citizens.
For over a decade now, the government has failed to correctly perform its duties. However, the ministry of urban development affairs blames this failure on lack of financial resources.
