Welcome Message From:
Vice Chairman/Managing Director
Cholistan Development Authority
Cholistan is a vast sandy desert of 6.65 million acres spreading over districts of Bahawalnagar, Bahawalpur and Rahimyar Khan populated by 155,000 people. Cholistan is rich in resources but these resources have not been meaningfully utilized in the past, much to the disadvantage of the inhabitants of the area and the country at large. We, in Cholistan Development Authority, driven by the vision and enthusiasm of Chairman of the Authority, Mian Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif, are trying to harness these resources. The traditional focus of development effort of CDA on infrastructure development has been changed. Now the focus is on the people of Cholistan. Many new initiatives in the fields of livestock, informal education, health, solar electrification, and social development have been launched along with normal infrastructure schemes. Community ownership of the projects and their participation is the ruling paradigm now. We are pursuing our dream of enabling the people of Cholistan to break the logjams of poverty and backwardness so that they can walk in tandem with their countrymen on way of development. May God Almighty light our way!
