Bahria Town Lahore or Bahria Town Rawalpindi

I enjoyed reading your article
I have a plot in bahria town pindi as well as in lahore.
Wondering which is best for living?

If you have any links for pindi bahria town etc life there pls post.
Salaam Sir / Madam!

First of all please accept my apology for not replying your email in time. I mistakenly treated it as a spam due to no name on starting as well as on ending.

I do not have first hand information about Bahria Town Pindi so I am not in the position to compare Bahria Lahore with Bahria Pindi. I have met few residents of Lahore who says that living in Pindi is much better than Bahria Lahore.
You may visit Lahore Real Estate for getting more information about Bahria Pindi.

Many thanks for replying.
I am working abroad and thinking of asking some builder to construct my dream house on my bahria town plot. I have been out of pakistan for a long time. A friend of mine told me there are no reputed private construction companies in pakistan, all there is are local thekedar who will cheat you.
Any idea if you came across a reputable . I asked bahria town but they said they dont build houses for plot owners.


Your friend is right that there is no reputed private construction company working in Pakistan on which you can fully depend. Generally work is being done by private thekedar or construction companies and majority of them (more than 90%) is cheater.

I am also in process of construction of a home in Bahria Town Lahore for one of my friend who is living in the UK. Its a chance or good luck that my thekedar Mr. Allah Bakhsh (03218027615) is an honest, responsible and committed person. He has experience of constructing homes in Bahria Town Lahore and provides his services in BT Lahore only.

Practically speaking that your presence is very important on (at least) two stages of construction.
  1. When the process of map, designing and layout is started and finalized.
  2. When finishing work is started. Only you can visualize how your home should look like. You can not depend upon Thekadar's vision.
I am sharing my experiences of construction on my blog.

  1. Salam alaikum,
    I plan to build a house in Rawalpindi, the contractor has given me a cost and told me it is the grey structure cost. May I know what does grey structure mean and what does it cover ? What is the final construction and how different is it from the grey structure cost? If I make an agreement with the contractor what points should I consider , any guidelines.
    Appreciate your help
