Of the 77 NOCs issued in Gwadar in 2004 – only 22 NOCs have been restored conditionally as of May 2018. These NOCs were restored after an extensive due-diligence process conducted by the Gwadar Development Authority. They completed:
- Verification of land and ownership to establish a clean title and identify pending court cases or judgements.
- Verification of land boundaries to ensure there were no overlaps or disputes regarding ownership with the local revenue department.
- Geo tagging of land coordinates.
The condition for restoration is that the developer must complete infrastructure work within three years from date of restoration of NOC. This process undertaken by the Gwadar Development Authority, ensures that both local and international buyers can purchase land or property in Gwadar securely – so long as the NOC has been restored.
