Bahria is the best

Kamran replied on Monday, April 29, 2013 03:13 PM PST

aoa, thx for your reply? How about the additional monthly expenses in Bahria?

Moreover, any opinion about PGSHS

Abdul Ghani replied on Monday, April 29, 2013 05:02 PM PST


Monthly charges in BT Lahore are very reasonable & service is excellent. I have my house in Ali Block & happy with everything.

Guest replied on Monday, April 29, 2013 05:05 PM PST

Additional charges for 10 marla = 1200 rup/month For (security, garbage collection, plumber services, electrition services)

thx, electricity bill? I have heard some stories that one has to pay hefty amounts for power usage.
Also how is bahria school wrt fees and standard of education. any other options ther than bharia school.

Abdul Ghani replied on Monday, April 29, 2013 06:57 PM PST

There is nothing wrong with the Electricity Charges. The rates are the same as other places.

I request HUSSAIN KAISRANI to advise about BT School, its fee structure & any alternative.

Curious replied on Monday, April 29, 2013 07:47 PM PST

There is a very little choice of schools in Bahria so far. Kaisrani sb is the most appropriate person to answer of your queries.

Hussain Kaisrani replied on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 01:24 AM PST

Many thanks dear friends to remember me.

I fully agree that there is nothing wrong in Bahria Town as far as utility billing is concerned. May be many residents have no idea of new billing policy of electricity. It is already imposed by WAPDA and Bahria Town has also done the same recently.
The unit rate of electricity used in peak time (5PM to 9PM) is being charged almost double than the normal time rate. Hope this information will help to save the monthly bills of electricity.

Regarding Bahria Town School Lahore
Friends may differ with me when I say that I am fully satisfied with the standard of school (at least up to primary level). I have seen the standard of schools in UK and Europe but found BTS far more better than those ones. The fee structure for primary school students is around Rs.6,000/= including pick and drop within Bahria Town Lahore. I do not think that we can find any reasonable school in this fee structure any where in Lahore.

We do not have any option of any other school in the area. All other options which are considered better than BTS are at least are on at least 15 KM distance. The fee structure for those schools would be around Rs.18,000/= plus pick and drop expenses and arrangements.

The standard of high school classes still needs special consideration. The new management (Ms Samina - The Director, Saleem Kashmiri - The Principal and Ms Alia - Vice Principal) is working very hard and I have seen significant positive difference during last one year. The latest high school result was also very good.

BUT Bahria Town School is shifting its high classes to Bahria Orchard from next session. Same is the situation with the college. I have visited school building in Bahria Orchard today. This impressive purpose built school building is in finishing stage nowadays. I understand that this strategic decision (which is taken for obvious reason to divert attention to Bahria Orchard) will disturb the residents of Bahria Town.

Kamran replied on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 08:39 AM PST

Lahore Grammar at Johar town is one of the best schools and schools in Pakistan are the best, in my opinion.

Mazhar replied on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 10:35 AM PST

Standard of bahria school is quite poor, but there are some good schools outside and the pick and drop facility is there. I would say don't get put off by just the school standard

imran replied on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 10:55 AM PST

What about bahria education and medical city Lahore? Of bahria is so good why they have failed to deliver there after 2 years as well.

Hussain Kaisrani replied on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 11:05 AM PST

@ Kamran
The session starts in September for which admissions are opened in July/August.
When some one thinks to upgrade the schooling form Bahria Town, generally LGS at Johar Town is considered top priority. Its monthly fees is around Rs.18,000/=

LGS also has its branch in EME but it is not better than Bahria Town as its a LAND MARK project of LGS. LAND MARK schools are opened for normal standards.

Mr Saleem Kashmiri - The present Principal Bahria Town School Lahore has vast experience of administration. He worked forAtichson College 
 as a Head Master, Principal Chand Bagh School, Principal National Grammar School.

Many good schools are in Johar Town. Around dozen of schools are in C Block to Township, college road, link with A, B, C blocks of Johar Town; close to PIA, etc etc.

Hussain Kaisrani replied on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 08:01 PM PST

@ Imran,

Brother! it is very bad practice of (almost all) housing projects that they do not deliver as per their promise. Bahria Town is not an exception in this issue. Like you, we are also not aware when will Bahria Management start concentrating on Bahria Education and Medical City Lahore.

The price will only start appreciating when there will be development witnessed in the project.

I feel that Bahria Town will deliver your plots. When? I can not guess about it. Sorry!

Abdul Ghani replied on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 08:14 PM PST

Shifting of High School & College Classes from BT Lahore to Bahria Orchids Is not a good idea. This decision will not only deprive the children of residents of BT from a reasonable facility at a reasonable cost but also deprive Bahria of a reasonable revenue. There is not much population in & around Bahria Orchids. Do the Bahria authorities intend to teach Furniture (Students chairs & desks without students) in the class rooms? It is not the building or furniture but the students which make a place school or college.

Brothers please remain away from LAHORE GRAMMAR SCHOOL . They just teach BADMASHI to small kids . if you want good education of your kids there are so many other good options available for SCHOOLS. inside school atmosphere is just fun and the Management of LGS just promote FAHASHI AND BEHHAYI in school
