Based on the decree number 15 dated 03.01.1382 of H.E. president of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, the Dehsabz and Barikab areas are to be acquired (Expropriated) via the government as they were dedicated for Kabul New City Development.

For the purpose of clearance based on the presidential decree No. 735 Dated 07/02/1387 a committee composed of representatives from Ministries of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock, Finance, Energy and Water, Geodesy and Cartography, has been formed since August 2008.

The land clearance is technically and administratively leaded by the Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Livestock. While, the DCDA is facilitating the clearance committee through planning and managing the administrative affairs for clearing the lands under KNC master plan, operating from date formed.
