From Bahria town to DHA – The property owner’s perspectives

Bahria Town is at present caught up with settling issues related to its project in Lahore and Islamabad. protests have been held by those affected by Bahria Town Sector F in Lahore. We are yet to discover how more than 5,000 of those influenced by Bahria Town's Garden City (Zone V – IX) in Islamabad, which has now a part of DHA Serene City, will respond if their requests are not satisfied. To give you a superior comprehension of the Garden-City issue, here is a fast rundown of what really occurred there.


Bahria Town launched Garden City in 2013 on a two-year installment design. The costs of the plots were high since Bahria asserted that the venture has been completely created and the property proprietors can begin development of their homes in Garden City immediately. In 2015, without appropriate declaration, Bahria Town gave over Garden City to DHA as a pay to DHA Valley, for which it got a few billion from the DHA. By at that point, Bahria Town had additionally gotten full installments for these plots in Garden City.

Concerns Of Property Owners:

At first, the property proprietors were informed that with DHA taking over the control of Garden City, property rates here will spike. Shortly, DHA raised “Serene City” board by expelling Garden City's board, property exchange office here was likewise closed down for an uncertain period. The update in such matter is that property proprietors, who have achieved a rough number of 5,000, have been requested that by Bahria Town submit PKR 3,500,000 as far as improvement charges.

Why Impose Development Charges?

The starting rate of Garden City plots was high at PKR 6,000,000 and PKR 4,000,000 for 1-Kanal and 10-marla private plots, separately. Bahria guaranteed this was on the grounds that these were developed plots. At the end of the day, the development charges were incorporated into the underlying cost. Presently when DHA took over the control – no formal declaration of which was made by any of the two developers – Bahria Town imposed advancement charges at a high rate of PKR 3,500,000 and PKR 2,500,000 for 1-Kanal and 10-marla plots, respectively. Why they have requested the development charges again is the issue that annoys the property proprietors as well.

Compensation For The Bounced Check?

As a pay to DHA Valley – a venture that met delayed development and additionally case – Bahria Town offered DHA a check of PKR 62 billion, which bounced. The sum was to be paid at any rate. It gives the idea that by forcing and gathering advancement charges on Garden City's property, Bahria Town is hoping to produce that pay for the DHA.

The Reaction:

Those influenced aren't willing to pay advancement charges basically on the grounds that they bought created plots, with the additional charges incorporated into the starting rates. They appropriately think it is unjustifiable. To counter this, the affectees framed a center panel to deal with their issues with Bahria Town's administration.

The result of the persistent demand of the property proprietors introduced to the administration is that the engineer has obviously consented to acknowledge their terms. As per the delegates of the center council, Bahria Town has requested that they hold up until August 16, as they mean to share some inspiring news by at that point. In addition, Bahria Town's administration has additionally consented to defer off advancement charges.

What To Expect Now?

I have learned that DHA has renamed all squares and boulevards of Garden City, and now new sheets have been raised perusing DHA-doled out names for these segments. If you go through GT Road inverse the passage of DHA Phase II, you will see sheets for Serene City rather than Garden City. From this development, we can securely accept that DHA and Bahria Town are currently in cutting-edge stages to conclude their assertion for this venture; a declaration is anticipated before August 16.

In the event that Bahria Town does not gather advancement charges from property proprietors, what will it really offer to DHA? A venture that was sold out numerous years prior and now has a place with singular proprietors? In the meantime, 5,000 individuals think about whether they will get ownership of their property sooner rather than later and whether their venture will pay them off according to their desires.

I am left to wonder who won what out of this arrangement. If you are on the same page with me or have input on this article, call out in the comment section underneath.
