Bahria town is a well-planned concept of building a town in Karachi and it is the long awaited project in the largest city of Pakistan. Besides Bahria Karachi, there is no other society that matches the international standards and infrastructure. However, DHA Karachi is built for the upper class people of Karachi but it is also not well established or well-planned society. So Bahria town is a great gift for the people of Karachi and proved to be a great town. There are no facilities of parks, playgrounds, underground electricity plans, infrastructure, well-built roads and planned commercial areas in DHA Karachi.
