DHA Gujranwala: The Future of Gujranwala’s Real Estate

Gujranwala, also known as the city of wrestlers, is a bustling city in the province of Punjab. It is the 7th most populated metropolis in Pakistan. Being a part of Punjab, the city is also known for its diversity of food, which includes the likes of Batair, Siri Paye, and Lassi, to name a few. While there never were any questions about the significance of the city given its historical importance, the launch of Defence Housing Authority (DHA) Gujranwala has marked a progressive future for the real estate market of the city.

DHA enjoys a stellar reputation in the real estate industry, for all the right reasons. The authority is synonymous with planned housing and world-class amenities. DHA has spearheaded some of the poshest neighborhoods across Pakistan boasting every necessary amenity such as electricity, gas, and water supply, as well as properly maintained infrastructure and sanitation systems.

Apart from the megacities of Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad, DHA projects are now being developed in many other cities of Pakistan including Multan, Bahawalpur, and Gujranwala. Even though the construction of DHA Gujranwala is in its initial phase, the project boasts everything needed to set new, better, and higher standards of living in the city of Gujranwala.


Located adjacent to Rahwali Cantt, some 8 to 12 kilometers from the city center, DHA Gujranwala is one of the most sophisticated housing projects in Punjab. The project is planned to have two main entrances: one from GT Road and one from Gujranwala Cantt.

DHA Gujranwala is situated at an ideal location, in proximity to Sialkot, Lahore, Wazirabad, and Gujrat. Being constructed on the outskirts of the urban center of Gujranwala, this military-owned housing scheme is a new entrant in the real estate market of Pakistan. The project has all the makings of a lucrative investment opportunity that somewhat guarantees better profits.


There are various factors to take into account while investing in DHA Gujranwala. The very first thing is the sense of safety that comes with investing in any project backed by the Defence Housing Authority.

Secondly, after analyzing the property performance in cities such as Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad, it has been observed that the real estate value of DHA neighborhoods rarely takes a dive. In fact, they mostly go up, and in some cases, their financial growth outpaced the growth of other localities in these cities. So, it’s no wonder that DHA Gujranwala has also become an investment hotspot.


Upon completion, DHA is going to be one of the most high-end neighborhoods of Gujranwala. The locality has been meticulously planned and will feature all the necessary amenities to allow its residents to enjoy a facilitated lifestyle. These include:

  • Proper Infrastructure
  • Educational Institutions
  • Security
  • Healthcare
  • Shopping Centres
  • Restaurants
  • Recreation Spots


Unlike the unplanned development that leads to crowded urban spaces, DHA Gujranwala has everything clearly mapped out. Wide roads, underground electricity cabling, and proper sewerage system are some highlights of DHA Gujranwala’s infrastructure.


The community itself is going to have schools and colleges of international standards in the future. However, DHA Gujranwala is already surrounded by many prominent academic institutions including Roots Millennium School, Rachna Grammar School, Al Asar Science School, and Government College for Women and Elite Colleges (Gujranwala Cantt Campus). This means that residents of DHA Gujranwala will be spoilt for choice when the time comes for admitting their kids in schools and colleges.


Gujranwala’s Defence Project is planned to have a fool-proof security system in place, making it a secure locality to live in. The area is going to be monitored and managed by ex-army personnel, CCTV cameras will be used for surveillance, and security teams will patrol the society 24/7.


Similar to educational institutions, the society will host world-class healthcare facilities for residents. Apart from that, some of the most prominent hospitals in Gujranwala such as CMH Gujranwala and Life Care Hospital are located near this DHA project.


There are also a few commercial centers planned in DHA Gujranwala that will allow residents to go on a shopping spree without leaving the society. Although there aren’t any developed markets operational in the society, as of now, prospective residents can easily visit Dugal Market, Dhuddi Market Rahwali, and Muhammadi Market, which are among the commercial spots located at a few minutes’ drives from DHA Gujranwala.


DHA Gujranwala is expected to have a variety of culinary options, keeping in view the diverse food culture of the city. However, for now, foodies who are planning to move to the neighborhood can conveniently dine or order delivery from some of the most popular restaurants in Gujranwala such as Al Mehboob Family restaurant, Al Makkah Tikka House, Qadri Noshai Chicken Sajji, and Pizza First.


A posh neighborhood like DHA Gujranwala is incomplete without recreation activities. Parks, playgrounds, and fitness centers are going to be added to the society shortly. Moreover, an 18-hole golf course of international standards will be developed in the neighborhood. For the time being, people living in DHA Gujranwala can head over to popular nearby parks like Iqbal Park, Mugheerat Park, and Nishan-e-Manzil Park.


Investing in DHA Gujranwala is considered lucrative for quite a few reasons, chiefly because it is a DHA-backed project. Investments in DHA are usually considered safe and Sureshot since the developer enjoys a stellar reputation and a successful track record. Having said that, a large number of plots are available for sale in DHA Gujranwala that investors can have a look at.


When it comes to commercial plots for sale in Gujranwala Defence, there aren’t many options available yet. However, the price range of a limited number of 4 marla commercial plots on sale in DHA Gujranwala starts at around PKR 1.4 crore and goes up to PKR 2.25 crore.


The two most famous types of residential plots on sale in the area are 5 and 10 marla. So, if you are planning to buy a 5 marla plot in Gujranwala DHA, then it will cost you around 20 lakh. Moreover, investors looking for a 10 marla plot will come across asking prices ranging between PKR 33 lakh and PKR 50 lakh.

Note: The development of DHA Gujranwala is still in its initial phase, which means the aforementioned prices can go up with time as the construction of the area progresses.


Starting from the price of PKR 50,000 and going as high as PKR 4.25 crore, thousands of plot files for residential and commercial units are available for sale in DHA Gujranwala. DHA Gujranwala files are available on net cash payments as well as installments.


On the 6th of February 2019, the computerized balloting was finally conducted by the stakeholders of DHA Gujranwala. It was the balloting of already booked residential and commercial plots including DHA Gujranwala files. Applications for 10 marla, 1 and 2 Kanal residential plots as well as 4 and 8 marla commercial plots were a part of this ballot.
