3. Initial Balloting

From the balloting till today, 3 years have been passed. In the first couple of years i.e. 2010 and 2011, the market was complete dull and there was no plot file transactions in the market. One major reason of this was that there were two different prices for the same plot i.e. Army Officers plots was balloted at half price from the Civilian Category. The Civilian Category plots prices were in minus because those Army Officers files available in the market for sale and they agreed to sale their files at little price premium.

After the two dull years, market started to take off in early 2012 and price premium starts on Civilian categories plot. Initially, it was at breakeven price, like what the payment has been made to DHA the seller can get this only. The market started to move with 50k price premium, then 100k price premium and so on.

The Education City and the DHA City will put tremendous amount of pressure on the existing infrastructure of the metropolitan, especially the transport, as the increase in these projects’ development activities would multiply the traffic load on the existing corridors, so the Malir Expressway project would be one of the most strategic economic corridors of the city that on the one hand, provides a strategic link to the Super Highway, and on the other, is the main passageway to the Education City and the DHA City.
