Possession of Overseas Block-1
Finally, Capital Smart City has started giving possession of Overseas Block-1.
Giving possession almost 1.5 years before time is surely a remarkable achievement of the management of Capital Smart City and it will set new standards in the real estate industry of Islamabad.
Since launched, the residential and commercial plots did amazingly well in the market due the news that it will be the first block to get possession.
The commercial plots have been selling at a profit of more than 10 lac while the residential plots have been selling at a profit from Rs. 200,000. Click here to see how the prices of Capital Smart City have evolved over time!
Finally, the possession schedule of Overseas Block-1 has been released and we believe that it will have a major positive impact on the market once again.

The possession will be handed over sector-wise.
Sector A & B of Overseas block-1 are now ready for possession. Check out the construction incentives being offered to the first few members who start construction.
Sectors B to E will also be given possession one by one in the coming months until April 2021.
See the schedule in the table below:
|Sector||Possession starts from||Dues cleared up to|

|D||Mar 2021||28 Feb 2021|

In order to apply for possession, members will have to clear all outstanding dues before the given deadline.
If you have a plot in Sector A and you wish to apply for possession in December 2020, you will have to clear all outstanding dues before 30th November 2020, and so on.
Possession of Executive Block-1 in Capital Smart City
The latest notice by Capital Smart City also has a great news for Executive Block members. Sector B of Executive block-1 will also be given possession in December 2020.
Executive block was launched in May 2019 with the promise of early possession. General members (non-overseas) were given the option to convert their block to Executive block by paying outstanding and some advance dues.
December 2020 will mark one and a half (1.5) years since the launch of Executive block. Possession in 1.5 years against a payment plan of 3 to 3.5 years is indeed a major milestone for the management. More on that in the next section.
Possession Schedule of Executive Block-1
Here is the possession schedule of Executive block-1 as announced in October 2020.
|Sector||Possession starts from||Dues cleared up to|
|A||Grand Commercial Area|
|B||Dec 2020||30 Nov 2020|
So, if you have a plot in sector B of Executive block and you wish to apply for possession by December 2020, you will need to submit and clear all outstanding dues by 30th November 2020.
Is Executive Block really getting possession in 1.5 years?
As already mentioned, possession in December 2020 implies 1.5 years since the launch of Executive block against a payment plan of 3 to 3.5 years. It is indeed a major milestone for the management and will set a new standard in the real estate industry of Islamabad.
However, it should be kept in mind that Executive block is not different from General block. In fact, there is no General block in Capital Smart City (We covered that here ). Most of the executive members might have booked their plots more than two years before possession.
Nevertheless, even if you booked your plot during the pre-launch phase at a payment plan of 3.5 years, you will get possession within the stipulated time provided that you have been paying all due installments in time.
Capital Smart City has once again claimed that all members will get possession within 3 to 4 years after the date of purchase given that they clear all dues on time.
Considering the current pace of development, it can be expected that the claim made by Capital Smart City is not empty!
