Mansehra Development Authority

Initially Hazara development authority was created as local area authority during May 1984 under the control of Provincial Urban Development Board (PUDB-Defunct) Government of NWFP. The objective was to provide planned housing schemes in the nearest premises of the Urban Centers, to develop and create additional housing units for the ever growing population.

Latter on after devolution in 2001, Hazara Dev: Authority was bifurcated into Abbottabad Dev: Authority (ADA) Abbottabad and Mansehra Dev: Authority (MDA) Mansehra. Since then MDA is working independently on self financed basis under the administrative control of Secretary Local Govt: Election and Rural Dev: Department KPK.
