    ASALAM-O-ALAIKUM you entered wrong information about zones, zone ,D, only zone ,D, not D1 or D2 . And zone D, starts from 34th street TO beach avenue between kh-e-ghalib And kh-e-bilal . And costal area is also included.

    • Walekum Assalam, Thank you very much for your keen interest and reading this information. You are write Zone D is only one phase and no subdivision. but according to development work on site it could be divided. and start from 36th street in one map, and 34 street in other. and Khayaban-e-Ghalib to Khayaban-e-Bilal, this was typing mistake Khalid was wrongly typed. as it is obvious that Khayaba-e-Khalid is in Zone A. Coastal are is also fall in Zone D.
