DHA Phase 9 Islamabad is an upcoming housing project near the Lahore-Islamabad Motorway and Capital Smart City. While DHA hasn’t officially announced it yet, they’re in the process of acquiring land and will reveal the launch once enough land is secured. Interested individuals can obtain a Letter of Ownership Right (Affidavit File) from DHA after paying token money to the land owner and visiting their office. However, selling this file to others is only allowed after DHA Islamabad announces Phase 9’s launch, which might take some time. Investing in Islamabad DHA Phase 9 is anticipated to be a lucrative opportunity due to DHA’s strong reputation in Pakistan’s real estate. Early investors could enjoy significant benefits in the future.

Developers & Owners of DHA Islamabad Phase 9

Defence Housing Authority (DHA) was established by the Armed Forces of Pakistan Welfare Trust. Primarily, the purpose of this housing society was to accommodate army personnel.Properties were available to armed forces on installments of 10-20 years. However, now this gated and affluent housing society is equally open for civilians and members of armed forces.

Chaired by the Defence Secretary of Pakistan DHA is housing and municipality organization. DHA Islamabad spreads over almost 50 sq Km in Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT). It was established in May 1992. DHA Islamabad has different phases ranging from Phase I to Phase VII and now Phase IX is underconsideration.

On the other hand, Habib Rafiq (PVT.)LTD. Is the official partner of DHA in developing infrastructure across Pakistan. This is an award winning company. Its services range from power & energy, Oil & Gas, roads & housing infrastructures, to water resources and engineering to airports and aviation.

So, we can say that the developer and owner, both are trustable. And one can invest in the DHA Islamabad Phase 9 confidently. Luxurious Marketing Pvt. Ltd. has also confirmed from market and relevant authorities about the authenticity of Phase 9 of DHA Islamabad. Owing to the positive confirmation, we are recommending to our valued clients to invest in DHA Phase 9.

DHA Phase 9 NOC Status

DHA Phase 9 Islamabad doesn’t need a separate NOC (No Objection Certificate). DHA Islamabad has got a NOC from the Government of Pakistan already. So, there is no need to get another NOC for its extensions/ phases.

DHA Phase 9 is going to be the best version of infrastructural development in the twin cities; Islamabad-Rawalpindi. Owing to its latest designs and development, DHA Phase 9 is becoming popular among investors not only from Pakistan but from Saudi Arabia, UAE, the USA and the UK.

DHA Phase 9 Islamabad Location

Location of a property matters a lot. Actually, location is a key factor in defining the value of a property or plot. Therefore, investors consider location very important while investing in a housing project especially. So, we can say that location makes or breaks a housing society. At times, housing societies fail just because of bad location.

However, DHA has a strong track record in selecting the best locations for its projects. Moreover, the developer Habib Rafiq (Pvt.) Ltd. holds a good track of successful projects in real estate as well. So, there are almost zero chances of selecting an unfavorable location for living or investing by DHA.

When we analyze the proposed location of DHA Phase 9, it becomes clear that there cannot be a better location than they have selected. DHA Islamabad Phase 9 is going to be developed near M2 – Lahore Islamabad Motorway. It is a few minutes drive away from the Thalian Interchange and just next to a premium housing society – Capital Smart City.

DHA Islamabad Phase 9 Nearby Landmarks

Besides having close access to the above-mentioned landmarks, the following societies/spots are just a few minute’s drive. This makes the location of DHA Phase 9 stand out among its previous phases.

  • Rawalpindi Ring Road – 05 minutes
  • Islamabad International Airport – 07 minutes
  • Chakri Interchange -10 minutes
  • Srinagar Highway – 22 minutes
  • Fateh Jang Toll Plaza – 25 minutes
  • GT Road – 40 minutes
  • Express Highway – 45 minutes

Map & Master Plan

When a housing society launches, it reveals its master plan and a tentative map. The map and master plan help investors to understand the location of their plot. Moreover, the residents become able to identify the exact location of their property.

So, a map or a master plan is essential like a backbone for housing societies. It equally benefits investors, marketers, residents and developers.

As far as the DHA phase 9 is concerned, it doesn’t have any map or master plan yet. This is because of the fact that still DHA has not officially announced the launching of phase 9. So, without the official launching of phase 9, there won’t be any master plan or map. Therefore, no one can have an idea of the main entrance, blocks, boulevards, and commercial properties.

This is a fact that the investors should not believe in anyone yet who tries to show them a map of DHA phase 9. Maps and master plans in the market, if there are any, are fake. In this regard, if you want to have more information, feel free to contact us at Luxurious Marketing.

Facilities in DHA Phase 9 Islamabad

DHA Islamabad is a prestigious and remarkable housing project. People and investors trust on this housing society project blindly. Plots and properties in DHA sell immediately after announcing its launch. 

So, its success has become itself a brand. And it is real by letters and spirits. A big chunk of its success is because of DHA’s commitment to providing equal, state-of-the-art, and world-class living styles. All facilities and amenities are no less than in any modern city in developed countries.

Plot Types & Sizes

Now, let’s talk about the plot types and sizes in DHA Phase 9 Islamabad. As we know that the DHA has a proven track record of world-class housing infrastructures, there must be a solid plan for Phase 9 as well.

Like other phases, this will also have two categories of plots; residential and commercial. Commercial plots usually do not have much variation in size. However, residential plots vary from 05 Marla to 02 Kanal. On the other hand, we must keep the fact in mind that in the beginning there will be no small sizes available. For example, if you are making up your mind to buy a file for DHA Phase 9 property, the letter of ownership is no less than 01/02 Kanals.

As of now, DHA has issued letters of ownership (Affidavit Forms) to the actual owners of the land where DHA Phase 9 is supposed to be developed. Those actual owners have letters with no less than 01 Kanal area. One can get that file (verified from DHA Islamabad) through a proper procedure. However, keeping in mind plot sizes in previous phases we can anticipate there will following plot sizes:

05 Marla
10 Marla
12 Marla
01 Kanal
02 Kanal

Total Area

DHA Phase 9 is yet to acquire land for development. After acquiring required land, DHA will announce the launch of DHA Phase 9. However, around 15000 Kanal land has already been acquired. So, real estate experts opine that the DHA can announce its launch anytime in 2023 or 2024. They say that 15000 Kanal is enough land to start housing infrastructure and acquire further land gradually with time.

Payment Plans

Payment plans decide the fate of a housing society, most of the time. So, owners and developers have to propose payment or instalment plans very carefully. However, in the case of DHA Phase 9, the owner (DHA) has a solid reputation. And its payment plans are popular among investors as they get reasonable ROI.

DHA has decided to go for a convenient payment plan for investors. This is attracting not only landowners but investors. Those who have land adjacent to the proposed area of DHA Phase 9 are happy as they are getting a considerable amount for their land. On the other hand, these lands are still very affordable for investors.

For example; DHA is offering PKR 1,50,00,000/- for 01 Kanal to the land owners. In fact, DHA doesn’t pay landowners directly. But they work under a certain land acquisition model. By this model, DHA offers 01 Kanal plot to the land owner against 01 Acre land acquisition. And currently, that 01 Kanal plot values for PKR 1,50,00,000/-

On the other hand, investors can get that 01 Kanal (Letter of Ownership Right) plot from the land owner by negotiation somewhere between PKR 2,00,00,000/- to PKR 2,50,00,000/-. Keep in mind that this is the current rate (as of August 2023) which may change with time.

How to Get an Affidavit File (Letter of Ownership Right)?

The process is totally legitimate and fool-proof. Investors can acquire land in DHA Phase 9 Islamabad by getting a Letter of Ownership Right from DHA Islamabad. This Letter (Affidavit File) will be further verified by the DHA Islamabad office as well.

The following process involves getting a Letter of Ownership Right (land in DHA Phase 9);

  • Find a land owner who has a legitimate Letter of Ownership Right.
  • Negotiate with the land owner and finalize the rate per Kanal
  • Go to the DHA Islamabad office with the land owner and get the Letter of Ownership Right verified and transferred to your name.
  • Carry your CNIC if living in Pakistan or NICOP in case of overseas Pakistani to get a Letter of Ownership Right transferred to your name.
  • Pay in cash or Pay an order to the landowner
  • Get your Letter of Ownership Right (verified by DHA)

Is it Safe to Invest in DHA Islamabad Phase 9?

Yes, it is quite safe and profitable to invest in DHA Phase 9 Islamabad. In fact, now is the perfect time to invest in this housing society. It is confirmed by Pakistani real estate experts that the location of DHA Phase 9 will be around the Capital Smart City of Islamabad. Furthermore, DHA has acquired 15,000 Kanal from local landowners. This is another proof of the project’s proximity.

Investing in DHA Phase 9 now will generate a higher ROI for investors. For instance, if you acquire a 01 Kanal plot at PKR 2,00,00,000/- and sell it later (which is guaranteed) at PKR 4,00,00,000/-, your ROI will be 100%. So, you can actually get your investment doubled.

However, you must be careful while investing in DHA Phase 9 as there are several scams in the market. There is no map or master plan out in the market yet. So, avoid believing in some quack claiming such stuff. Get in touch with us at Luxurious Marketing for authentic deals.

Development Status

DHA has acquired 15,000 Kanal lands from local landowners. Furthermore, negotiations are in process with the adjacent landowners to acquire more land. DHA will announce its Phase 9 once they have acquired enough land. This is in process. Additionally, several landowners have got Letter of Ownership Right (Affidavit File) against their lands.

However, no infrastructural development is seen as of now. There is no boundary line, working on infrastructure, or even no demarcation. So, we can say that there is no update on the development status of DHA Phase 9.

Nevertheless, Luxurious Marketing has a keen eye on it. We are contacting the authorities and market experts to know about the exact fate of this housing phase. We’ll update as soon as we get some wind. Or you can get updates from the official website of DHA Islamabad by clicking here.


DHA Phase 9 is just next to Capital Smart City Islamabad, a few minutes away from Islamabad International Airport and adjacent to Lahore – Islamabad Motorway (M2). Its prime location is attracting investors. Though infrastructural work and launching are not initiated yet, local landowners have got Letters of Ownership Rights by selling their land to DHA Islamabad.

So, if you are looking forward to investing in DHA Phase 9 Islamabad, it is the right time to invest. However, investors should be aware of the fraud and fake files in the market. For example, ProPakistani – a news website has published a notice from DHA which warns investors not to invest in files or plots.
