DHA has very efficiently and successfully been able to acquire land for the construction of the scheme. The first balloting has already been done on March 14, 2020. The balloting was done very swiftly, and applicants were notified with the results within hours. The Balloting was done by the computerized methods to ensure fairness and transparency.
Out of all plots, nearly 50 % of plots were won by the residents of Balochistan. 1st balloting of DHAQ was able to receive an overwhelming response from applicants from across the country. DHAQ is a successful project in terms of real estate and in the realms of socio-economic surpluses for the province as well. The residents of Balochistan were able to develop and improve their lives by utilizing their long-deserted properties and earn from it. The project allowed them to engage with the real estate agents and get business out of the lands.
This project has produced a lot of opportunities, jobs, and growth opportunities for multiple businesses across Balochistan. Balochistan has always been very shy of new development, now as it has seen Gwadar and other bigger projects including the DHAQ, Balochistan can rise to the new developmental heights like other provinces.
