Ladies and gentlemen, It did not take very long for me to realize that there existed a dire need for a modern and well-designed housing scheme for the people of Balochistan in general and Quetta in particular. In earnest terms, I directed for conceptualization of such a housing scheme which matches the latest trends and contemporary concepts being followed globally in the field of town planning. In line with the dictates of current times, aspirations of the people, future requirements and tremendous potential for growth and economic activity, I envision a new and shining face of Quetta. I have already directed DHA Quetta to undertake speedy acquisition of land for expeditious realization of this long awaited and much desired dream of the people.
I am aware of the challenges that lay ahead in this regard and expect that our sincere efforts and all out support of the proud, brave and resolute people of Balochistan would create the desired level of synergy by which we will together see the emergence of a new era of development featuring comfort, modernity and style. I urge all land owners to fully cooperate with DHA Staff for quick actualization of construction work.

A Long awaited wish of the people of Balochistan in general and Quetta in particular came true when the Provincial Assembly of Balochistan adopted the Resolution and passed Defence Housing Authority Act XI of 2015 dated 02 October 2015.
This event actuated a deliberate and intricate process of appreciation involving a vast array of different analysis and surveys such as related to geography, topography, demography, ecology, sociology, economy, hydrology and other diasporic, cultural and urban planning studies that focus on current local trends. This led to the crystallization of different options for future projects of Defence Housing Authority in Quetta.
I wish to inform all our future members with great satisfaction and gratitude that DHA Quetta has decided on its future strategic direction. We vow to commit all our energies towards creating first ever most advanced and high-tech self-sustained, environmental friendly and futuristically developed housing scheme. Some prominent features which would distinguish the erstwhile Quetta, as has existed for decades without any significant improvement thus far, are listed below: -
Having interacted with various segments of people in Quetta, I am positive that DHA Quetta will truly come up to the expectations and hopes which every member of the society is eagerly associating with it, Hence the motto that has been so willingly adopted by DHA Quetta: -
I urge on the people to come forward and join us in this challenging but attainable objective by first facilitating in acquisition of requisite land for the project and later in its quick development for all to benefit and enjoy the new face of Quetta, that is to emerge soon Insha Allah.
With best wishes and profound regards.
