Ministry of Commerce Employees Co-Operative Housing Society is a developing housing scheme on Fateh Jang Road near New Islamabad Airport. The initiative of establishing a housing society was taken by retired and serving employees of ministry of commerce in 1987-1988, but actual progress ensued in 2012 after the takeover of management committee by Mr. Rana Ghulam Farid in 2011.
MOCECHS is planned over an area of 4500 kanals of premium land on Fateh Jang Road. Development of phase 1 has been completed which includes block A, block B and Block C, wheres development of phase 2 has recently started which includes Block D and Block E. The society has obtained NOCs from all relevant government authorities to development currently available land, while more land is being purchased for future extensions of the society.
Ministry of Commerce Housing Scheme is said to be located in Sector E-19 Islamabad. As per the current master plan of Islamabad, there is no sector after “17 series” i.e. E-17 is the last sector of zone 2 Islamabad. But if we consider the location and future extension of this master plan, MOCECHS will definitely fall under sector E-19. Neighboring housing schemes include AWT D-18 Islamabad, PAF Tarnol Housing Scheme and PECHS Islamabad.
