Merging Procedure For 125 sq. yards

| Bahria Town News | May 31, 2016


I received a lot of requests regarding merging procedure of 125 sq. yards. So here I'm mentioning the whole step by step process. Please note, NDC will be applied for both (Merger and Retainer) files. Merger means the file which may be be blocked, down paid, 1, 2 or up to 6 paid. The retainer file means, the file in which merger file will be merged. It means at the end Merger file will have no existence and that amount will be transferred to the retained file.

Bahria will value your merger file as 150,000 plus installment amount you have paid. Once NDC cleared for both files, then first step would be transfer the merger file on your name, if not already which will cost you 15,000 transfer fee. Then in second step you will merge that transferred file into your retainer file which will cost you 10,000.

Iqbal Villa Launched at Bahria Town Karachi

| Bahria Town News | April 24, 2016

Bahria Town Management finally launched long awaited BTK Iqbal Villa that measuring 150 sq. yards. This project was under construction for more than year and now 70% completed. If we talk about the price, it seems quite high as compare to other available home projects, even it is expensive than Quaid villa. Qauid home 200 yards was launched at around 72 lacs, although there is significant own on that now. 

Iqbal villa total price is 98,00,000 and its downpayment is 30,00,000. I don't know much what is going to be the results for this project but what i know is, old 125/200 homes price will dramatically increased now, as I alread predicted earlier. Still if i see from the angle where keeping everything in mind, i see th old items shining, obviously the balloted one. Anyways, this new deal is available through dealers and you won't be able to book directly from Bahria. Therefore, I would suggest to wait for a bit and then plan buying once situation is clear for YOU.

Here is Iqbal villa payment schedule:

Dawn’s Article About Bahria Town Karachi’s Land

| Bahria Town News | April 20, 2016

I'm receiving different queries regarding Dawn Article about Bahria Town Karachi land issues. So here is my point of view.

I didn't read much when i reached the line where it says, it was agricultural land and toms were demolished. Well, which footage/picture shows it was agricultural land were any of use? There are a few graveyards, which are still there and marked as graveyards in precinct 27 and others. 

What makes difference when Bahria Town Karachi jumped in:

1. Huge money influx in Pakistan from overseas Pakistani's. They were not interested before because they had fear to invest in Pakistan. So Bahria Town give them an investment platform with modern living standard community

2. Nobody was ready to buy this land and none of land owner was able to sell, why on would buy this and for what purpose? After bahria step in, surrounding land prices increased dramatically. Yes, there would be a few cases where things overlook but you can't paint all with same brush in such large scale project.

3. Local area people got 1000's of job opportunity at their door step.

5. Bahria Town given a hope to overseas Pakistani's. Especially Pakistani living in KSA/Gulf .. because one day they have to come back to their country. Don't forget that million of Pakistan living in gulf ..one labor catetory and other well settled, the labor category is sending their funds to Pakistan to their family, because as labor they have less income so their family is living back home in Pakistan. On otherwise, Pakistani's with good wealth are living their along with their families, so why they would send their huge money to Pakistan? But they are investing in BTK. What other way? Do you think they place their savings in Paki's banks? Never! but they will prefer placing their amount in their respective country where they currently living. So this is the bahria town who compel them to send Millions to Pakistan through proper channel.

4. Bahria town is high TAX generation machine. Was this land being taxed before?

5. Criticize something is very easy buy construction suggestions are far difficult for us as Pakistani. Why Cricket is not in Pakistan? ofcouse Law n order is issue but there is not a single cricket ground/stadium where international team feels comfortable while traveling from living place (Hotels) to Stadium. To cater this issue there must be a very protective sports stadium where all living facilities available for international people in the same boundary. That's what Bahria Town is doing .. Sports City .. What this author suggest now, from where bharia town should acquire the land? Where he was before.

What Author suggests, government should ban the bahria town and give all land to sardars or give back to Afghans who actually occupied some area? Make the local people jobless again? hhm.. I think Author wants the overseas Pakistani to sell their property and pull their money back from insecure Pakistan investment?

We need developers like bahria town but there must be some authorities who could keep some checks on bahria town and timely secure the rights of people. Now what author wants, demolish the homes where millions invested by our own people?

| Bahria Town News | April 2, 2016

Bahria Town has started giving possession for Bahria homes 200 Sq yards from March 31, 2016. This is another milestone Bahria Town has achieved. 200 yards villa is one of the hottest product of Bahria town which is in profit of up to 40 lacs from actual price. And that is really good gain in property business in this 2 years time frame with a nominal investment amount. Whatsoever but this inreasing rate game is still on and it will get more attraction after this 200 yards villa possession.

Bahria Town Karachi Ali Block Possession on March 23

| Bahria Town News | March 22, 2016

Bahria Town Management is going to offer Ali block possession on March 23, at 6pm on Bahria Town site. This will include music concert with local singers and tremendous firework as per bahria tradition. Only families allowed!

This this is the reason that Ali block price is high as compare to normal 125 yards, becasue Bahria Town is going to offer possession far ahead which will defenitely result good price raise and people will get a chance to cover their losses. But i'm afriad the ones who purchased at high own, they will have to still wait for an year or so. But if someone wants to build his/her house then there is everything go to go for him/her.

Bahria Town Sports City Karachi Booking Started

| Bahria Town News | January 31, 2016



Bahria Town has launched a new project with name Bahria Sports City. This project will be one of the best international sports complex containing all world standard grounds. It has different residential categories available i.e. 250, 500 and 1000 Sq. Yards. It is a 4 years plan.

Update: Booking forms available at Bahria Town offices @1000 pkr. Make sure you do not buy this form on profit as its not a registration form but a booking form. We recommend book Sports city from a dealer and ask for some discount.

Booking last date is 16 February, 2016

If we look at the price of the plots, they look pretty reasonable, however nobody knows where is the location. If the location resides in the existing precincts then it would be incredible but chances for that is very less because current precinct plots prices are pretty high.

Bahria Town Sports City

Bahria Sports City balloting is expected in March this year, most probably on March 23, 2016 along with old unballoted items. Per my understanding old items location would be appear same with BSC plots. Maybe old items plots will given at start and after that location will be allotted to Bahria Sports City residential plots.

What should we do?:

That really depends on the number of files dealer will throw out in the market. But one thing is sure, there will be a at least one satta/game where rates will increase dramatically due to small investment, because this deal is given through dealers and this time Bahria is not forcing big dealers for payments, because Bahria knows that people are already stuck in other more than 40 products. Therefore, its a good project to invest in for the short time, let’s say for 6 months. We can come out after gaining some profit.

Old un-balloted vs Sports City:

As I already mentioned that old items are expected to be given before BSC which looks good choice but keep in mind, Sports City is a small investment, you don’t need to pay installment money yet but only down payment. Besides that there is no transfer fee at beginning as open forms will be trade in the market, so if you are out of country then its more viable investment for you because you don’t have to come to Pakistan for transfer for some time. Make sure you buy a form that is trade-able in all main cities.

Bahria Golf City Karachi Map And Situation After Balloting

| Bahria Town News | December 19, 2015



Bahria Town has finally executed the first phase of balloting for Golf City project. But the interesting thing is most of the people are not aware of this development. Same situation is for Bahria Heights, hardly people know if balloting done for Heights project as well. If you got Bahria Heights or Golf and you are not aware of your balloting results then you must contact Bahria town help line and check your file status.

One of my clients is successful in balloting who needs  my help for selling his plot, but when i asked in the market, no one even knows about the balloting, hence rate is far matter. Actually Bahria has played same game here, they silently done the balloting and allotted some plots to few people, but good locations will be allotted to big dealers whos installments are not even updated. But the people like us will suffer, who mostly have 500 yards category, according to map 95% of 500 yards plots are not facing golf. This is not something new to us as i mentioned about this a lot of times to some friends here.

Also there are less amount of plots but huge amount of files circulating in the market. So maybe merging would take place one day for this project as well. There are two other important things which people may not know, one is, there is an old graveyard in the precinct 20, not sure what will Bahria do with that. 2nd thing is precinct 20 seems to be the only source of pure water for the whole Bahria town Karachi project. Pure water is very important for better construction.

I’m not sure what would be the future of Golf city project but ultimately it is going to be the higher living standard community scheme. But it will take around 5 to 7 years. If you see this through Bahria Lahore Golf city project then it really makes you disappointed, that Lahore project was started back in 2011 with full zeal and zest, map was published in 2011 as well but till today there is no sign of anything on the ground. However, we hope Karachi Golf project will not lead us to same situation as Lahore.

Analysis of Bahria Town Present Situation

| Bahria Town News | September 26, 2015



Finally Bahria Town Karachi old  items balloting done but that is partially completed for only 10% of people who paid their all 6 installments. Also most of the successful files got numbers in Precinct 28 to 30. If you look at the current precincts map, you will see only 22 precincts. Why not blocks but precincts? Because normally one block has same category property, hence if Bahria gives numbers to every 125 holder then whole bahria land will  be covered in 125’s with single block. Therefore, Bahria seems to be giving all categories some place in precincts. So one precinct can have different categories. Also this precinct map doesn’t look final it can be modified later as well, this is not confirm news but my prediction. You should not always take my prediction serious :)

As you know we share the valuable analysis of our valuable BD’s members. Similarly below is the analysis of one of our friend. I Bahria_precincts_maphope you will appreciate his views.

After a long time, Bahria has done the balloting although they promised to add all those members who paid 05 installments but results show that only those members were added who paid all 06 installments. This is very amazing that all members got letters for payment of installment so that they can be considered in balloting but this time they did not circulate any message and done the balloting and on helpline no body is informing that only those were considered who paid 06 installments.

Anyways it seems that Bahria wants to attract members for payment of installments but balloting seems not to effect this scenario as market value is continuously going down. In this scenario chances are very meager that prices will go up even after balloting of 10 % property

Installment payment will only be done when improvement in market value will occur and Bahria has to take step for this on urgent basis so that member’s trust can be regained. It is also possible that prices has been got down deliberately so that extra files in the market specially of 125 square yard can be disposed off but even for that atleast prices should go up to the actual amount paid by the members because majority of members will not sale at that much lower price.

Now the ball is in the court of Bahria Authorities and they have to take immediate steps to protect collapse of their project and to gain trust of members back so that investment flow will again occur towards Bahria Project

Current Bahria Town Karachi Situation And It’s Future

| Bahria Town News | August 14, 2015

As most of you know Bahria Town Karachi rates are decreasing day by day and people are in huge loss, specially small genuine investors. In average 75% of prices gone down in recent months for all Bahria Karachi Projects. Pricing downfall was expected but this worst fall was never expected. However, whatever is done is done now. The question is what should we do, what should be our next step, how to recover our losses. For all these answers we will take a look at backlogs and then we will devise a best strategy for future.

 

What is the reason of BTK downfall:

As I already mentioned in a few posts that already there was extra selling for old items, especially for 125, 250 yards etc. Bahria thoughts let's sell as much they can then later they can handl with merging or self-buying. So that was expected but that was not leading to the stage of down fall where today Bahria projects stand. The matter becomes more serious when land issues/rumors occurred. Previously we heard that Bahria has 40,000 acre's of land available for all project but after some institutions involvement and and news for indicating illegal land for Bahria, make the situation more panic and people thought their all investment is going to be zero so better sell everything for whatever comes in hand at this time, otherwise nothing will available if legal-stay is taken, which i personally believe was/is not going to happened.

To cater the situation Bahria came up with a letter to concerned head and published in newspaper and other print media that they didn't purchase the lands from Singh gov but genuine people and the land size is 7631 acres. Hence we can understand that Bahria legitimate land is 7631 acres only. So don't forget that the files sold by Bahria may not according to the 7631 acres but several times more than that. BTK has sold around 40,000 acres land.

So let's make some rough calculation here to find out what can be done in this size of land. We heard and can take an estimate from Bahria Town map that there are around 80k 100k 125 sq yards files distributed, so each 125 yards file contains 5 marlas. Now if we look at per acre it contains 160 marlas = 1 acre . So our formula would be something like:

80,000 x 5 = 400,000 / 160 = 2500 acres === This is land for 125 yards only

Similarly if we look at the Bahria golf project, we heard there are about 7k to 10k files available. So make an estimate of 30 marla per plot and add normal golf course size which consume 150 acres. So in result you will see approximately 2000 acres for Bahria Golf project. Here we calculated only 2 categories of Bahria Town Karachi out of around 30. And we covered approximately 4000 acres of land for 2 categories. Now imagine what land left for the rest of 28 (approximately) projects. Hey! we didn't counted parks, hospitals, roads and schools area in this calculation. I left that for you.

 

What is expected from Bahria:

One thing is 100% clear to me that Bahria is not a fraud.So to handle the situation Bahria may already adapted the same approach i.e. buy the extra files, destroy them and try to fix everything in available land of 7631 or bring it more close, so later may they get a chance to buy more lands. So now think over it that what rate Bahria will buy the files? 3 lac for 125 yards or 20k for 125 yards? Similarly 5 lac own for 500 yards golf or 12 lac minues? Hope you have the answer for your question.

 

What should we do now:

Please note, when Bahria rate falls down or go high, it paints all categories with the same brush respectively, means all categories including opal/hoshang form will go down or go up, doesn't matter whatever is the real value. It can't be happend like added 5 lacs own in 250 files but Bahria heights gone down to minus 5. One will go up/down, rest will follow. But we don't need to follow this, we need to understand the real ground situation, Apartments, Villas and Quaid homes or under construction and face of Bahria Town, so Barhia will never let them down and will try to gain the peoples trust to build them and handed them over asap. So we need to buy these properties rather going in to above discussed hotch potch. We keep in mind that short term investment is not going to help in either category.

 

When prices will increase:

Off course once Bahria started buying through his big fishes, rate will automatically boost up. Bahria won't stay with low rates longer, because BTK wants people to pay installments, if things are in minus Bahria will never push peoples for installment, neither people will ready to pay anything further, also Bahria will not in position to cancel the file because in that case they will have to refund the amount which is 40% more than the file holder can get from the market. So be patient and invest in the right projects.

Please note, I am a lay man and these are all my rough thoughts, these may all become wrong, so decision is yours, if works for you, order a pizza for me, if not then your fate :)

Installments & Balloting Last Date Extended To July 10

| Bahria Town News | June 27, 2015

Bahria Town has again extended to the last date for clearing dues, as well as balloting date also been pushed to July 10, 2015. Bahria is basically extending date again and again to get maximum amount from people in the shape of installments.

Logically Bahria is not going to cancel the files due non-payment, the reason is, if Bahria cancel the file Bahria will then  refund more than the current market rate of the file. Let's quickly analyze, Golf 500 yards file current market rate is 900,000 negative, so if bahria cancels the file then they have to pay back 562,000 in the shape of refund. Similar situation for 125 yards. Some peoples are requesting bahria to cancel their files.
