People hear in abroad are so much anxious to pay in foreign currency as soon as possible if they get the information about their plot. We can clear all dues in 2 to 3 years in advance if we know where our plots will be.

    M-9 Motorway from Karachi to Hyderabad will further boost the prospects of DHA City Karachi. I agree with the comment above that file owners must not lose patience and wait only for 3-4 years. It is the best lottery you can invest in.Those who do not agree now, should keep in mind that after completion of M-9 Karachi-Hyderabad Motorway, DCK will only be one hour drive from Hyderabad. And after completion of Lyari Expressway and the proposed Malir Expressway, DHA City Karachi will be the ideal place to live in.
