The Municipal Corporation Cooperative Housing Society Ltd. Rawat Rawalpindi (also called New Pindi Housing Society), which was originally started in 1980, was merged into DHAI Phase 3.

Phase 3 has now picked up great momentum. This phase is going to be flag ship project of DHAI in terms of its size, its location and its connection with RBP (Rawalpindi bypass). Its main entry is opposite World Trade Centre on GT road and it is being extended to RBP.

Zone 5 to 9 of Bahria Garden City has already become part of this phase. Garden City has been renamed as Oriental Garden by Bahria Town.

A rapid earth work is ongoing which indicates a desire of DHAI to complete initial sectors in about 18 to 24 months.

Phase 3 has bigger space in terms of return up to 50 to 55 % in next 3 to 4 years.


DHA has taken over Bahria Garden City (Zone 5 to 9). Now Garden City is called DHA III. This event was a surprise for many as the master plan by DHA for its phase 3 included Bahria Garden City (Serene City), older blocks of DHA phase 3 and surrounding area.


Hence, after this news broke out in the market, people started purchasing residential and commercial plots especially in Garden city as well as in older blocks of DHA Phase 3.


Now coming towards the South of twin-cities, at its south western and westerly direction lays a vast tract of land which is located in between M2 Motorway and GT road which starts from Rawat and ends at Tarnol/ Wah. This area is highly significant in socio-economic context due to the abundant road network and its close proximity to supporting infrastructure for CPEC. It’s location and linkage with CPEC (the Road to Future of Asia) has tremendous potential for growth (Southern Zone)

The South Zone will be the hub of economic activities in near future. A thorough analysis on SZ reveals that this zone will result in attracting investments with handsome returns because of the following major developments;

i. The approval of RBP (Rawalpindi bypass) commencing from Rawat, which connects the strategically planned DHAI Phase 3 and Phase 4, Bahria Phase 8,

ii. The RBP links the DHAI and Bahria with the New Islamabad Airport which will be the center of international trade plus M2 Motorway,

iii. Furthermore, SZ has the potential of expansion across the motorway which can further accommodate mega projects.

In addition to this a well planned construction of Rawalpindi Industrial Zone stretched over 125000 kanals of land along Rawat Chak Beli Khan Road is highly substantial as it links the motorway.

After analyzing the above developments in twin-cities it can be safely concluded that the SZ will be the Centre of Gravity of major national and international economic activities in near future. In fact, it has already exerted a population and economic pull which now is the center of attraction for developers and international investors.
