Bahria Town Karachi and DHA city Karachi are both huge residential projects, on the outskirts of Karachi. They are both located on the M9, also known as Super Highway. As the name suggests, Bahria Town is a development, being developed by Bahria group, who have previously launched and developed, Bahria Town Lahore and Bahria Town Islamabad, both mega projects.

The DHA city, in fact was the DHA phase 9, the first 8 phases being besides Clifton Beach, fully developed and constructed, and backed by the Defence forces, and the posh area of Karachi. DHA has their Defence societies in all major cities of Pakistan, and guarantee you secure investments, which gradually turns out to become the poshest address in town. When you are asked to compare one against the other in Karachi, my vote is for DHA City.

Bahria Town Karachi would have been the first choice, as it is about 15 minutes from the toll plaza on the Super Highway, has pumped in a lot of money in planning ,developing and creating masterpieces, in the shape of golf course, theme park, world largest mosque (3rd), large Cricket Stadium, musical fountains, and huge open spaces, parks, state of the art German hospitals, replicas of world famous sites,and a network of boulevards and wide streets, all a big plus for investors and those planning to reside. etc but there is a big problem when it comes to security of your investment. It is common talk in the market, and sometimes reflected in news also, that Bahria has sold way more plots, than it actually has the land, and so will not be able to fulfill its promises. It has claim to a lot of acreage of land, and has to face a lot of challenges in the courts.

The cases are ongoing, and until such time they are cleared, and in favor of the Bahria group, this uncertainity shall keep the astute investors on the sidelines. But what goes to the credit of Bahria is that whatever land stands cleared, they have fulfilled their promises and developed and marketed/promoted in a way, which pulls public in large numbers to go and invest in it. You may put your money in the cleared precincts, or unknowingly get stuck in one of those which is still in the courts, and find yourself having anxiety for few more years without any guarantee what will happen to your investments. The same happened to investors in Lahore and Islamabad, and even after decades so many are holding to papers and running from pillar to post to get a glimpse of their plot. DHA city on the other hand, is another 15 minutes drive on the super highway, ie about thirty minutes from toll plaza, and 15 minutes from Bahria Town Karachi. As compared to BTK, the development is slow, and perhaps had been planned in that way, as it is about 30 minutes of barren land from Karachi toll plaza. DHA must have planned to a schedule of slow paced development, so that in 10/15 years they would be at a place when people will start toying with idea of staying so far out of the city. But the coming of BTK hastened up he development in DHA City to some extent.

The project is secure and your investment safe. It is a long term thing which shall grow at a decent pace, as BTK ncreases. It should be a nice haven to invest for your children and reap the profits 20 years from now. And your plot, documents will all be in safe hands. It is more like the story of the hare and tortoise. BTK being the hare and tortoise, the ultimate winner being DHA city. Both are presently pushing the property prices in Karachi to new heights, but for the fear of land problems with BTK.
