HYDERABAD-The Sindh Government has posted BS-19 Zahid Hussain Shar as the Director General of the Hyderabad Development Authority (HDA) after keeping the post vacant for over 16 months. According to a notification issued on Monday, the Additional Secretary Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities had been posted against the vacant office of DG HDA with immediate effect. Muhammad Sohail Khan was the last full-time DG of the authority before he was transferred to Malir Development Authority on May 20, 2022.
